What You Learn While Lunching with Jeffrey Donovan

Season one of Burn Notice is out on DVD today so I thought I’d celebrate by sharing the Q&A with Jeffrey Donovan from my set visit. Seems appropriate, no? Everyone we talked to, and I do mean everyone, thinks very highly of Jeffrey and, after we talked to him, I knew why. Not only is [...]

TV Blog Coalition: June 13-15

Katherine Heigl made waves with her statement about Grey’s Anatomy while pulling out of the Emmy race this week, but Buzz wondered if perhaps she had a point. (BuzzSugar) We finally found out just who PJ’s mystery date was on the premiere of My Boys. Did she bring along the right guy? If you’re a [...]

Why You Should Watch THE MIDDLEMAN Tonight

Tonight at 8/7c is the premiere of The Middleman on ABC Family and I think all of you should be giving it a try. Now, I’m not going to lie, it’s not for everyone. I have friends who will not be able to get past some of the more fantastical elements of the show. But, [...]

Friday Fun: Reality Stardom

Ahhh, summer TV is here and with it a whole new slew of reality shows to suck you in… I know it’s not cool to admit you like reality shows but I do. Oh, I don’t like ‘em all just like I don’t like every TV show out there either (and now you’re thinking, “Oh, [...]

Dances, What Dances?

Is it possible to “spoil” So You Think You Can Dance? Obviously you can spoil the results show but what about the dance episode? Does knowing someone thinks one couple performed better than another spoil it for you? I guess maybe in the sense that it could get your expectations up and then a dance [...]

The Bill Engvall Show returns tonight for it’s second season on TBS at 9/8c. Last week, I was lucky enough to get invited to a screening party including an appearance by Nancy Travis. Thanks to Michelle for making sure I got an invite and to Andrea for coordinating the whole thing. Not only did we [...]

Visiting the Set of Burn Notice, A Recap

I’m in love with one of the newest Burn Notice promos on USA’s website (and I think it’s one that Spads hates!). I can’t tell if it’s just because their use of the song is so much better than the CW’s was in their first network promos or because I spent Friday sitting across the [...]

Undercover Poll: Spies Like Them

I’ve got spies on the brain! But before I get to them, let’s talk about last week’s season finale polls. Though a few of you are understandably no fans of lame cliffhangers (15%), having your expectations undeservedly built up (15%), too many commercials (13%), or characters acting stupidly (11%); the majority of us (43%) agree [...]

Seasons Beginning & Ending: Army Wives & Greek

Army Wives returned this past weekend but, sadly, even that isn’t enough to fill the void Greek’s departure last night is going to leave. Who knew I’d love Greek so much? Oh, shut up, just because all of you knew and kept telling me to watch doesn’t mean you knew! Anyway, I didn’t love the [...]

MTV’s Crewing It Up

Burn Notice recap, photos, and interviews coming soon. I keep saying that but capturing the day on paper is a time-consuming process and I’m working on it but I have other things to chat about in the meantime. Let’s start with the Best Dance Crew since that was Saturday. First up… if your DVR is [...]

The Promised Best Dance Crew Videos

Those Best Dance Crew videos I promised you on Thursday? I finally have them processed and ready. Sorry for the delay! I kinda got lost in the world of Burn Notice for a day and a half.

Friday Fun: Shoutin’ Out Loud

In honour of the new Sex and the City movie I’ve been devouring my SatC DVD’s, and I came across one particular episode which had something that I (and many other TV addicts) adore… TV Shout-outs! This particular episode had 2 shout-outs to WB shows, and like the true fan-girl that I am, I squeed [...]

Dinner Chat with Burn Notice’s Matt Nix

Ohhh, you guys!! I just got home from dinner with Matt Nix, the showrunner and creator of USA’s Burn Notice and it was fucking awesome. I think I’ve got a thing for TV writers because I fall in love with every one of them that I meet. I think it’s their brains. Oh so pretty. [...]

Taking a Peek at ABC Family’s The Circuit

The ABC Family original movie, The Circuit, premieres this Sunday, June 8th, at 8/7c and, thanks to my friends at New Media Strategies, I got an early peek at it. Overall I liked it though I did have some issues, some justified and some not so justified. Either way, I think it’s on par with [...]

Seasonal Poll(s): Best & Worst of Finales

New week, new poll! Ok, so last week’s poll was pretty popular but, winning by 54%, Meredith and Derek blew all the other couples out of the water. Henry and Betty came in a distant second with 22%. Here’s hoping the Grey’s Anatomy writers take note. I think we’d all be a little happier if [...]

The Middleman is a brand-new series premiering June 16th at 8/7c on ABC Family. And I’m going to tell you right now, several of you going to fall head over heels in love with this one. Of course, some of you are probably going to run screaming in the other direction but that’s ok, it [...]

(BuzzSugar) Marcia and Fergus liveblogged Eurovision, the only music contest to feature Olympic ice skaters, knitting brides and pirates. Take that, American Idol. [...]
