Talk about a bad week to be a child actor. Monday THE BIG BANG THEORY’s Asian Doogie Howser trades in his status as ‘the next Bill Gates” for a date with a girl. Then on BACK TO YOU, Kelly and Chuck’s daughter gets re-cast when the producers decide to ‘go in a different direction’ and finally SMALLVILLE’s Lex Luthor puts an end to Mini-Lex by tossing him in a roaring fire. Ouch!
And speaking of SMALLVILLE. Is anyone else bothered by the fact that after waiting the better part of seven seasons for Lex to finally go to the dark side, he’s being quickly written off the show due to Michael Rosenbaum’s real-life wishes to only return to the series part-time next season. Talk about a letdown of super proportions.
Tim Conway, roaming the halls of 30 ROCK for the better part of a half hour — most bizarre guest starring role ever? You decide.
And finally, ELI STONE. After last night’s fantastic season ender, two things are abundantly clear. First off, someone needs to find special guest star Richard Schiff [THE WEST WING] another regular gig on TV. And more importantly, now that Eli’s brain aneurysm has been successfully removed, ABC has no choice but to pick up the show for a second season. Not only did showrunners Greg Berlanti and Marc Huggenheim brilliantly set the table for a heartfeld and emotional second season premiere. This TV Addict is left pondering way too many questions. Not the least of which is what happens next?
