Least Welcoming Return: Aaron Sorkin’s return to the small screen was treated with such vitriol you’d think the guy was responsible for having created ACCORDING TO JIM.
Biggest — But Most Welcome — Adjustment: ABC announced that this September, GENERAL HOSPITAL would move to 2 p.m. in order to make room for Katie Couric’s new show. To most soap fans, this was great news… especially since the last two shows ABC made announcements about were ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE, which had been given the axe!
Best Reversal Of Fortune: Thanks to how miserably her exit from TODAY was handled, Ann Curry went from The Girl Least Likely To Be Missed to The Girl Most Likely To Get Our Sympathy Vote And Be Named Most Popular.

With a career that has spanned just over two decades now, there’s no denying that acting is more than likely akin to child’s play for Jason Ritter. Which should certainly serve him well for his latest role that sees him stepping into the shoes of, well a child! Premiering tonight on the Disney Channel, GRAVITY FALLS finds Ritter voicing the character of Dipper Pines, who along with twin sister Mabel are in for an unexpected adventure when they spend the summer with their great uncle in the mysterious town of… you guessed it… Gravity Falls. We caught up with Ritter late last week to find out what attracted him to the project, whether or not co-star Kristen Schaal is as funny as advertised, and of course what’s in store for PARENTHOOD fans when our favorite family drama returns this fall.

The high-octane spy series BURN NOTICE may give off the impression it is an “all boy’s club,” but what would the show be without the powerful love story of Michael and Fiona. After all, Fiona was the only person who came to Michael’s rescue the minute she found out that the super spy had been “burned” by his former employer. For the past six seasons, Fiona has proven to be more than just the eye-candy or trigger happy-girlfriend, she has been the reason that Michael found the strength to pursue his oppressors and frequently spurned him into helping more than one client in distress. In a recent press conference call, star Gabrielle Anwar shared what it is like playing such a strong, powerful and capable woman on the show. [Read more…]
