There is nothing we at theTVaddict.com despise more than ungrateful actors. Which is why, in response to GOSSIP GUY Penn Badgley’s inexplicable insistence on dissing his day job — you know, the one that pays him ridiculous sums of money for what we’re fairly certain 99.999% of the country would kill for the opportunity to do — we wanted to take this opportunity to send him a message. A message that goes a little something like this: (a) STFU YOU UNGRATEFUL ACTOR! And (b) the grass is not always greener. As evidence by Today’s TV Addict Top 5.
Best known for: Bring sideburns back as BEVERLY HILLS 90210’s original bad boy Dylan McKay.
Career trajectory: In an attempt to find more mature roles, Perry exited the series in 1994. What he found was a string of forgettable characters in equally forgettable made-for-television movies such as INVASION and THE TRIANGLE as well as short-lived dramas like JEREMIAH, WINDFALL and JOHN FROM CINCINNATI.
Where are they now: Perry can next be seen this Saturday January 29 in the Hallmark Movie Channel Original Premiere of GOODNIGHT FOR JUSTICE, directed by fellow 90210 star Jason Priestley.
Jonathan Taylor Thomas
Best known for: Popularizing the “three name” moniker in the late 90’s as HOME IMPROVEMENT’s breakout star Randy Taylor.
Career trajectory: After asking to be let out of his HOME IMPROVEMENT contract to focus on his “studies,” the young man responsible for single-handedly keeping the teen magazine industry afloat during the late 90’s parlayed his post-IMPROVEMENT fame into plethora of of box office duds that eventually relegated him to guest star status on the likes of 8 SIMPLE RULES FOR DATING MY TEENAGER DAUGHTER [RIP] and VERONICA MARS [Double RIP!].
Where are they now: Although rumored to have given up acting entirely in leu of attending Columbia University, Thomas’ whereabouts is currently unknown.

Inspired by last week’s 30 ROCK in which Jack Donaghy revealed NBC’s not-so-secret “Programming Priorities Breakdown,” theTVaddict.com is proud to present our own spin, with today’s target… err, we mean subject being, ABC.

As this week’s episode of CASTLE proved, a kiss is never just a kiss. A kiss is always a promise of something more. It may be a kiss hello, a kiss good-bye, a kiss-off, or a kiss-up, but a kiss always has an ulterior meaning.
In CASTLE, Detective Kate Beckett agreed to play along with Richard Castle’s preposterous plan to distract a guard by pretending to be lovers on a date. When their cuddling did not appear to be enough, Beckett murmured that the guard was not fooled; so Richard Castle did the next best thing he could think of: he kissed her. It was not a momentary peck on the lips or a glancing caress — it was a full-blown passionate, knee-melting kiss. As Beckett allowed herself to fall into the ecstasy, one could just feel the heat emanating from both of them. Then as Beckett stepped back as if to take a breath, she threw caution to the wind and moved back in Castle’s embrace to fall into the abyss once more.
It was perhaps the most erotic scene on CASTLE ever. Fans everywhere sank back into their sofa cushions in relief and then quickly rewound their DVR’s to replay that moment over again. It was a kiss worth reliving time and time again — and from the looks on both Beckett and Castle’s faces, it is one they would have liked to have immediately relived again as well. Beckett may have been able to regain her composure faster, but Castle looked rocked to the core. He was shaken and overcome, and wiped a hand across his face as if to say, “oh, lord, what just happened?!”

THE OFFICE is going old school. After almost seven seasons of successfully eschewing their network’s penchant for stunt casting in favour of funny actors who… wait for it… actually fit the part, Dunder Mifflin Sabre is hiring themselves a movie star.
According to Deadline Hollywood, Will Ferrell has committed to a four episode arc that will see him playing an inappropriate and inept branch manager.
Good News: After almost three seasons of adding virtually nothing to the show, Deb Wilson (Lori Loughlin), one of the remaining vestiges from what will surely go down in history as television’s most poorly conceived nuclei is exiting 90210 at the end of the season alongside Mr. Matthews (Ryan Eggold). Bad News: Annie (Shenae Grimes) and Dixon (Tristan Wilds) Wilson will not be joining them. [Source]
