I am really excited for the return of "V" and I am really hoping ABC gives this series a chance.

Released by Miss TV Girl

 No matter how hard I try, I can't understand the popularity of this show and cast. It's completely ridiculous and idiotic on every level possible.  I get how mindless television can be an escape and entertaining, but this bunch of people aren't even likable, their somewhat sad to be honest. Now, I get that I am in the minority but "Jersey Shore" and shows like it , personify what is wrong with television.

  FOX cancels "The Good Guys" after just one season and 20 episodes.


Released by Miss TV Girl

FOX has decided  not to order additional episodes of "Lie to Me" for its third season. This means that the third season will air only 13 episodes.  No word yet on whether or not this signals an eventual cancellation for the series, but it is not a good sign for a renewal.  I guess we will have to wait and see.

Personally, I  have not really enjoyed the  new directions of the series.  Tim Roth as the intimidating rebel with a cause is so over the top and  a little unbelievable and I am saying this a fan of the show and Tim Roth.

The last original episode is scheduled to air Monday, January 31st.

 TBS has pulled the plug on its veteran comedy "My Boys" after four seasons.
No specific reason was given for the decision, which was confirmed to the various trade publications this afternoon.

Back-to-back episodes (serving as its de facto finale) drew a modest 784,000 viewers this past Sunday - including a 0.4 rating among adults 18-49.

The news comes after a storied summer for co-stars Jordana Spiro and Kyle Howard - who had been attached to NBC's "Love Bites" and "Perfect Couples," respectively - but were let go due to their first position status on "My Boys."

Howard was ultimately replaced by Kyle Bornheimer while Spiro's character was written out as part of an overall revamp to "Bites."

AMC has decided to cancel the conspiracy thriller after just one season.

"Rubicon" gave us an opportunity to tell a rich and compelling story, and we're proud of the series," AMC said in a statement. "This was not an easy decision, but we are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such a phenomenally talented and dedicated team." critically acclaimed but low rated conspiracy  thriller after just one season.

 I pretty much bailed on "Rubicon" around the 5th episode, due to its inability in my opinion to move the story along.  "Rubicon" was also a very hard series to get excited to watch, due to its somber subject matters and dreary settings. I swear I don't think I remember ever seeing one character laugh and this  is coming from a person who watches "Criminal Minds" every week.

 The 13th and final episode aired on October 17th

Last week marked the 10th anniversary of 'Ed,' which certainly has a plum spot on our list of great shows that were canceled too soon. The fine dramedy that revolved around a barrister/bowling alley proprietor and his quirky fellow Stuckeyville-ians premiered on NBC on Oct. 8, 2000. And though its four seasons whizzed by all too quickly, we can't say we hardly knew ye, 'Ed' ... in fact, we knew ye, and loved ye, quite well.

From Ed's outrageous bets with BFF Mike (Josh Randall) and his long-running romantic dance with high school crush Carol Vessey (Julie Bowen) to the, ahem, industrious Phil (Michael Ian Black) and adorkable Warren (Justin Long) and the revelation that was the funny, charming and adorkable Tom Cavanagh as the titular Ed Stevens, 'Ed' was a delight for every one of its 83 episodes, and culminated in the wacky and wonderful series finale wedding of Ed and Carol.
To celebrate the 'Ed'-ness, here's a little catch-up guide to what the show's stars have been up to since the February 2004 finale:

Tom CavanaghTom Cavanagh
Ed Stevens
Cavanagh, the Canadian actor who was nominated for a Golden Globe for his role as Ed, hasn't had much luck in getting another TV show to stick around, but he does continue to be in demand on the tube. Post-'Ed,' he starred in another cult fave, but short-lived, dramedy with CBS' 'Love Monkey' and the admittedly underwhelming TNT advertising drama 'Trust Me," but he also made scene-stealing guest appearances on 'Eli Stone' and as J.D.'s slacker older bro in a recurring, Emmy-worthy 'Scrubs' guest gig. He also starred in the buzzed-about ABC pilot 'Edgar Floats,' which lost its buzz after most of the cast, including Cavanagh, was replaced, and on the big screen, he was the dad in the movie adaptation of the beloved kids book 'How to Eat Fried Worms,' and plays Ranger Smith in the December 2010 'Yogi Bear' flick. He also returns to the tube next year, playing a golf pro in a guest spot on 'Royal Pains.'
Julie BowenJulie Bowen
Carol Vessey
After playing the eventual Mrs. Stevens on 'Ed,' Bowen played Jack's wife Sarah on 'Lost,' romanced Michael J. Fox and Mark Valley as an attorney on 'Boston Legal,' enjoyed cougar love with Hunter Parrish on 'Weeds' and earned her first Emmy nomination early this year for her role as wild child-turned-uptight mama Claire on 'Modern Family.'
Josh Randall
Mike Burton
Randall, who played Ed's doctor BFF Mike, has also been a busy TV bee post-'Ed,' including a memorable 'Scrubs' guest role of his own, as Jake, one of Elliott's boyfriends. He also played Jenna Elfman's love interest in the short-lived 2006 CBS comedy 'Courting Alex,' and has guest-starred on 'Lost,' 'Private Practice,' 'Men in Trees,' 'Pushing Daisies' and 'The New Adventures of Old Christine,' and co-stars with Gary Cole in the upcoming movie 'A Good Funeral.'

Lesley Boone
Molly Hudson
Boone, who played the Stuckeyville High principal and Carol's BFF, has guest starred on 'Medium' and 'Higglytown Heroes,' and most recently played Carlos' employee and ex-lover Lucy on 'Desperate Housewives.'

Jana Marie Hupp
Nancy Burton

Hupp, who played Mike's wife, had been steadily working in Hollywood for more than a decade when she landed the role on 'Ed,' though since the show wrapped, her most notable TV appearance was in an episode of the (thankfully) departed ''Til Death.'

Michael Ian Black
Phil Stubbs
The State and Stella comedy troupes alum played Phil, Ed's Stuckeybowl employee who had a never-ending supply of get-rich-quick schemes. Since the show ended, Black (who replaced Donal Logue in the role of Phil) has starred in his own comedy series -- 'Stella' and 'Michael & Michael Have Issues' -- has guest-starred on 'Reno 911!' and 'Reaper,' written a book of humor essays ('My Custom Van: And 50 Other Mind-Blowing Essays That Will Blow Your Mind All Over Your Face'), penned a children's book ('Chicken Cheeks: The Beginning of Ends') and, as a skilled poker player, has appeared on 'Celebrity Poker Showdown.' Next up, he stars in the star-packed comedy 'Backwash.'

Ed castJustin Long
Warren Cheswick

Aside from his famous Mac vs. PC commercials, Long has been mostly MIA on TV since 'Ed,' spending most of his time on the big screen and in tabloid magazines with on-again, off-again girlfriend Drew Barrymore. The duo has co-starred in flicks like 'He's Just Not That Into You' and the recent romantic comedy 'Going the Distance,' while Long has also had standout roles in 'Dodgeball.' 'Waiting ...' 'The Break-Up,' 'Accepted,' 'Die Hard 4' and provided the voice of Alvin in the 'Alvin and the Chipmunks' movies. He provides the voice of Humphrey in the current animated flick 'Alpha and Omega,' and, next up, he stars in the Robert Redford directed historical drama 'The Conspirator' and may return for 'Die Hard 5' in 2011.
Sadly, 10 years after its debut, fans are still waiting for 'Ed' to hit DVD, and, as has happened with many a TV show-on-DVD project, music rights seem to be among the pesky issues that have held up the release.

Last year, Cavanagh told an interviewer that both 'Ed' and 'Love Monkey' DVD releases were in the works. "That is in the works as we speak," he told a TV reporter in Michigan. "We don't want to, like, jam it down peoples' throats immediately ... we're trying to wait a nice decade before we can present that to the people who want it."
Well, it's officially a decade later now, so let's have those DVDs!
And for all other things 'Ed,' including a complete rundown of Ed and Mike's $10 bets, a guide to the show's music (several playlists on my iPod are made up of music I heard on 'Ed' and 'Gilmore Girls'), a list of Phil's schemes and the "Edcyclopedia," check out the ultimate 'Ed' resource,

Several woman have played the gun-toting assassin Nikita: first, Anne Parillaud in the original 1990 French film, then Bridget Fonda (as "Nina") in the 1993 American remake, 'Point of No Return' and now Hong Kong star Maggie Q., who is stepping into Nikita's deadly shoes for the new CW series which debuts tonight (9PM ET).

But the actress who embodied Nikita for the longest time remains Peta Wilson, star of the '90s series 'La Femme Nikita.'

'Nikita,' which was made in Canada and aired on the USA network, debuted in 1997 -- the same year as another series inspired by a movie about an ass-kicking babe, 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer.' Wilson, along with Sarah Michelle Gellar, ruled the Internet: Beautiful blondes in love with brooding hunks? Who also kick ass? What wasn't to love?

With the new 'Nikita' debuting September 9, we thought we'd check in on what the old Section One crew has been doing since running their final mission in 2001.

Peta WilsonPeta Wilson
Then: Wilson was a model in her native Australia and in Europe before she moved to Los Angeles in 1991 to study acting. She scored small roles in films, but her big break was beating out 200 other would-be Nikitas for the role of the beautiful spy who works for the ultra-secret Section One and falls for emotionally unavailable fellow spy Michael.
Now: Since bidding farewell to Nikita, she played vampire Mina Harker in 2003's 'The League of Extraordinary Gentleman' and had a small role in 'Superman Returns' in 2006. She's slated to star in the upcoming 'Hellraiser: Revelations.'

Roy DupuisRoy Dupuis
Then: A superstar in Canada (especially among the French-speaking) thanks to several early '90s television roles and the 1991 film 'Being at Home With Claude.' He was introduced to American audiences with a supporting part in the 1995 sci-fi flick 'Screamers,' opposite Peter Weller. In '97, Dupuis landed the role of brooding Michael Samuelle, who had lost his first wife and was then forced to marry a terrorist's daughter as part of his undercover work. And you thought your romance had obstacles!
Now: Dupuis has continued to act steadily, portraying Canadian hockey legend Maurice Richard in the 2005 film 'The Rocket,' which earned him a Genie Award, Canada's equivalent of the Oscar. He also starred in 'Shake Hands With the Devil,' based on a UN official's experience during the Rwandan Genocide. He can currently be seen in the acclaimed French film 'Mesrine: Killer Instinct' as a prison associate of the legendary criminal, played by Vincent Cassel.

Alberta WatsonAlberta Watson
Then: Watson has specialized in playing intimidating authority figures, like the fearsome Madeline, who ran Section One with an iron fist and didn't approve of Nikita's emotional tendencies, especially her romance with Michael. Before that, Watson was best known for the movie 'Spanking the Monkey' as a bed-ridden mother who falls into an incestuous affair with her adult son (Jeremy Davies), a controversial role that both Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange reportedly turned down. She played a much softer role, that of a grieving mother, in Atom Egoyan's 'The Sweet Hereafter.' During 'Nikita's' second season, Watson underwent chemotherapy for lymphoma, which caused her to lose her hair; she wore wigs until her own hair grew back.
Now: Watson's most high-profile post-'Nikita' jobs include playing CTU director Erin Driscoll (the one with the schizophrenic daughter) for the fourth season of '24' and a supporting role in the Canadian series 'The Border' as the Minister of Public Safety. She also played Hansel's mom in 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch.'

Eugene GlazerEugene Robert Glazer
Then: The enigmatic "Operations" was a formidable boss and frequent enemy to Nikita (and occasional lover to equally ice-cold Madeline.) But he showed he had a heart when he died trying to save Michael's son. Trivia: Glazer's real-life wife, Zenia Gratsos, appeared as Renee in the episode 'Hand to Hand.'
Now: Glazer appeared in Season 2 of '24' as Alexander Trepkos, who tried to start a war between the United States and three unnamed Middle Eastern nations in order to drive up oil prices. He's also guested on 'Charmed,' 'CSI: NY' and 'Cold Case.'

Matthew FergusonMatthew Ferguson
Then: Ferguson starred as Seymour Birkoff, Section One's resident computer genius. As the head of Communications, he supervised all missions in progress. He created a highly advanced artificial intelligence program to take his place, but once it became self-aware, sacrificed himself to stop it. Pre-'Nikita,' Ferguson earned several Genie Award nominations for roles in the films 'Love and Human Remains,' 'Eclipse' and 'Lilies.' He also had a small role in 'The English Patient.'
Now: Ferguson appeared in 'Earth: Final Conflict' in 2001, the Canadian sitcom 'An American in Canada' and the Philip Seymour Hoffman film 'Owning Mahowny.'

Don FrancksDon Francks
Then: Francks played the bandanna-ed Walter, the guy who supplied gadgets and weapons for Nikita's missions. One of Nikita's closest allies, he helped her conceal her relationship with Michael.His resume includes a turn opposite Fred Astaire in the 1968 musical 'Finian's Rainbow' and appearances on such seminal spy series as 'Mission: Impossible' and 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' Films roles include 'My Bloody Valentine' and 'Johnny Mnemonic.'
Now: The actor is described on Wikipedia as a "a drummer, poet, native nations champion, motorcyclist, author and peace activist," and is an honorary Cree under the name Iron Buffalo. He played "Hobo Joe" in 2007's Bob Dylan biopic 'I'm Not There,' and provided the voice of "Skunk" in in the Gene Simmons' animated series 'My Dad the Rock Star.' (He had provided the voice of Boba Fett in the infamous 'Star Wars Holiday Special' and Sabretooth in the '90s X-Men animated series.)

Carlo Rota
Then: A man of many names, he was known as Mick Schtoppel for the first four seasons, then as the mysterious, all-powerful Mr. Jones, but was really an actor hired as a decoy by the real Mr. Jones.

"Life Unexpected" is a great  show currently in its second season on the CW network that needs your support in order to earn a full season pickup. I am truly disappointed that so few people are watching.

 Since my last posting begging anybody and everybody to help save "Life Unexpected", the CW network has given full season pickups for "Hellcats" "Nikita and "One Tree Hill". Unfortunately "Life Unexpected" only received 2 additional scripts.  However, there is still hope and time to increase the ratings and get that full season pickup.

"Life Unexpected" airs every Tuesday night at 9pm. Please watch, and I guarantee you will love this show.

 NBC has given full season pickups for three of its freshman series The Event, Outsourced, and Law & Order: Los Angeles.

We are pleased with the quality of The Event, Law & Order: Los Angeles and Outsourced, and feel they are an important part of helping to re-build our schedule and our studio pipeline,” said NBC president Angela Bromstad. “We believe in these new series and the creative auspices behind them.”

Although the pickups are not really a big surprise, it is also important to mention that none of the three series have performed exceptionally well in the ratings department, but NBC can't get rid of everything.

  No word yet on  NBC's two other fall shows Undercovers and Chase.

"Outlaw" is the only show NBC has cancelled this season

UPDATE:  NBC announced today the full pickup of "Chase and and"Chuck"

A lot of faces have come and gone since 'The Hills' debuted on MTV in May 2006, and in honor of the show's July 13 series finale -- we know, we're sad, too -- we're playing catch-up with a few of the most memorable 'Hills' stars of the past, starting with, of course ...
Lauren "L.C." Conrad
Conrad's the one that started it all, as the 'Laguna Beach' star's move from her Southern California hometown to Los Angeles to launch her career in the fashion industry sparked 'The Hills' as a 'Laguna Beach' spin-off. For five seasons, 'The Hills' revolved around L.C's educational pursuits at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, her internship at Teen Vogue, her romantic pursuits with Jason Wahler and Brody Jenner and her friendship with former roommate Heidi Montag.

After that last friendship went sour -- with Heidi's hook-up with Spencer Pratt -- LC began to focus on friendships with Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port, and in the middle of 'The Hills' fifth season, made her final appearance on the show (at, of all places, Heidi and Spencer's wedding).

Since her reality TV days ended, Conrad has written two bestselling novels (a third one will be released in October), launched the LC by Lauren Conrad clothing line at Kohl's and started dating a scripted TV celeb, 'My Boys' star Kyle Howard. Conrad confirmed last month that she won't return to 'The Hills' for the series finale, but will pop in for the post-finale reunion special on July 13.

Jason Wahler
Lauren even gave up a summer trip to Paris for Teen Vogue to stay in Los Angeles with boyfriend Jason in 'The Hills' season one finale, but their tempestuous relationship finally crashed and burned at the beginning of season two.

Post-'Hills,' Wahler has continued to make headlines, but not positive ones. He's scheduled to be a part of the next season of VH1's 'Celebrity Rehab' with Dr. Drew Pinsky, but his drinking escapades have led to racist rants, instances of him getting drunk and throwing his shoes at people and allegedly hitting a tow truck driver, all chronicled in many, many posts at And, since the beginning of 2010, he's been arrested for a bar fight in Mexico, was booked later in March on suspicion of DUI and, in June, was arrested at a party in Hollywood after being accused of hitting a female.

Jen Bunney
Bunney was a longtime friend of L.C.'s -- such a good friend, in fact, that Lauren presented her with diamond jewelry for her birthday in a season two 'Hills' episode. But, later (in that same episode!), Bunney spent some up-close-and-personal time with L.C.'s ex, Brody Jenner, in a messy, sneaky situation that also involved Spencer and another of Lauren's so-called friends, Heidi. Bunney was dismissed from L.C.'s clique with that action, and was an infrequent presence on the show afterwards.

Earlier this year, Bunney popped up in photos with Heidi Montag, who'd just announced that she was splitting with husband Spencer and would star in a new reality show with Bunney (a newly blonde Bunney, who, like Heidi, looked like a completely different person after some reported plastic surgery). But, like so many others before her, Bunney learned -- via the media, of course -- that Heidi is a fickle friend, as the soon-to-be-ex-Mrs. Pratt reportedly no longer wants to be Bunney's reality TV BFF ... after, Bunney says, she quit her job to star in the show.

Elodie Otto
Elodie was Heidi's friend and confidant when the clueless Montag worked for nightlife entrepreneur Brent Bolthouse at Bolthouse Productions. Elodie made the mistake of sharing her ambitions for a promotion at the company, which prompted Heidi to go for -- and get -- the promotion, and, more importantly, the sweet private office, for herself. And another Heidi Montag friendship bit the dust. But Elodie moved on from Heidi and the gig at Bolthouse, and is now an SEO specialist for a hotel chain based in Scottsdale, Arizona, and comments on her favorite reality TV shows at her blog, SEO Showbiz Gal.

Jordan Eubanks
Former baseball player and aspiring actor Eubanks (he had starred on the MTV series 'Damage Control' prior to 'The Hills') was the pre-Spencer Pratt boyfriend of Heidi Montag during the show's first season (he gave Heidi a puppy or Christmas on the show). Since then, Eubanks has continued to pursue his acting career, including co-producing and starring in the indie flick '2 Dudes and a Dream,' which also starred Simon Rex, Nikki Ziering, Jason Mewes, Andy Milonakis and the aforementioned Jason Wahler.

Emily Weiss
She was the super intern who swept into Teen Vogue in season two and taught Lauren and Whitney a thing or two about ambition. Not surprisingly, Weiss is still working in fashion media, as a freelance fashion assistant at

Doug Reinhardt
He had grown up in Laguna Beach with L.C. (and had taken her to his senior prom), and after his stint as a minor league baseball player ended, he moved to Los Angeles and was reunited with Lauren, who dated him briefly during the fourth season of 'The Hills.'

Reinhardt, whose stepfather invented the frozen burrito, went on to even more famously date Paris Hilton in 2009 (the two were rumored to be engaged at one point), and last month, was linked to Miss World USA Lane Lindell. Career-wise, Reinhardt is the co-founder and CEO of FUGEN Mobile, a mobile messaging and applications services company, and he and his family are following in Kardashian footsteps as the stars of the upcoming E! reality series 'Reinhardts: Family Comes First.'

Jayde Nicole
The 2008 Playboy Playmate of the Year dated Brody Jenner during 'The Hills' fifth season, but the pair constantly fought and eventually ended their relationship before the end of the season. Post-'Hills,' Nicole vowed never to watch the show again, though she's rumored to be developing her own reality series for E!.
