SURVIVOR! ONE TREE HILL! MISSING! GENERAL HOSPITAL! SUPERNATURAL! The TV Addict Week in Rewind

Best Funeral: Sorry, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, but when it came to remembering a lost (fictional) loved one, the grieving of Robin Scorpio-Drake’s GENERAL HOSPITAL loved ones was far more moving than the service for Mike Delfino.
 
Best Funeral, Runner Up: Nope, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES didn’t come in second either, thanks to ONE TREE HILL baddie Dan Scott finally meeting his maker… and, in the afterlife, the brother he killed several seasons ago.

Most Fun Marathon: Logo will host a “24 Hour Salute To Great American Cinema” by running Showgirls on a 24-hour loop… on April Fool’s Day.
 
Coolest Show: Too bad Discovery didn’t save the incredible seven-part series FROZEN PLANET for summer. It’s icy locals might have helped cool us down during the hotter months! [Read more...]

Ask the Addict: Spoilers for BONES, PRETTY LITTLE LIARS, HAWAII FIVE-0, ONCE UPON A TIME & More!

So excited for tonight’s return of BONES. Even more excited for what’s rumored to be an Emmy-worthy episode for David Boreanaz. Anything you care to tease? — Nancy
The TV Addict: As much as I’d love to be able to tease the heartbreaking circumstances that come crashing down on Booth in tonight’s episode that afford David Boreanaz an opportunity to deliver one of his most emotionally impactful performances to date, we’re afraid that to do so would pretty much spoil the episode’s most shocking moment. Cue obligatory ambiguous tease that goes a little something like so: This time, it’s personal.

With all the buzz surrounding Booth, I’m curious if there is anything for us Brennan fans in tonight’s episode of BONES? — Jenn
The TV Addict: Oddly enough, tonight’s episode does an excellent job of highlighting a handful of positives as a result of Brennan’s decreased workload due to Emily Deschanel’s real-life pregnancy. One of which has to do with a hilarious anatomy lesson that Brennan gives Squintern Clark, while another is the return of the always welcome Tina Majorino as Booth’s sidekick Agent Shaw.

Any HAWAII FIVE-0 Scoop? — Jake
The TV Addict: Do you happen to be the parent of a teenager who bares a striking resemblance to a young Alex O’Loughlin? If so the Producers of HAWAII FIVE-0 want to hear from you! Okay, they don’t really want to hear from you, that said, sources have confirmed that they are searching for a young man to play a 16-year old version of McGarrett for a pivotal upcoming episode that will shed some very welcome light on McGarrett’s relationship with his super secretive father.

Today’s TV Addict Top 5: We Examine Fall TV’s Biggest Surprises

Procedural of Interest
Having spent the better part of our TV blogging “career” railing against CBS’ inexplicably popular brand of cookie-cutter procedurals, we were as surprised as anyone to discover that our favorite new show of the fall — PERSON OF INTEREST — is just that! In fact, thanks to the budding bromance between Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Fitch (Michael Emerson), the ever-expanding cast of morally dubious supporting players (Enrico Colantoni FTW!) and the addictive allure that comes with creator Jonah Nolan’s storytelling prowess, we can’t recall the last time we were this excited to find out what happens next.

Star Wattage
If one had asked us at the start of the television season to pick our “guaranteed locks” for favorite Fall show, there is no question in our mind that we would have bet the farm on the likes of 2 BROKE GIRLS, NEW GIRL and UP ALL NIGHT based solely on the like-ability factor of stars Kat Dennings, Zooey Deschanel and Christina Applegate. Unfortunately, now almost mid-way through the television season the only prediction we care to make with regards to UP ALL NIGHT and to a lesser extent NEW GIRL is that they are both perilously close to being dumped off our weekly sked alongside the already forgotten 2 BROKE GIRLS . Suffice it to say, likeable leading ladies with an off-the-charts “Q Score” can only do so much where weak writing is concerned. [Read more...]

It’s Official: It’s Whitney Cummings’ World and We’re Just Living In It!

Fresh off yesterday’s announcment that saw NBC renewing WHITNEY for a full season comes even more good news for the busiest women in show business: CBS has officially ordered a full season of 2 BROKE GIRLS, starring indie darling Kat Dennings and relative newcomer Beth Behrs. A move that comes as surprise no one considering the Whitney Cummings (Pictured above left, laughing all the way to the bank) Michael Patrick King (Above, right) executive produced laugher not only ranks as the highest-rated new series in both the key 18-49 demo and total viewers, but managed to build upon its HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER audience in each of its three consecutive outings.

Random Musings: REVENGE, 2 BROKE GIRLS, CASTLE & More!

Spoiler Alert Much! Or at least that’s what your very own TV Addict was left thinking following what we can’t help believe was a far too revealing interview with REVENGE creator/executive producer Mike Kelly over at EW.com. Now don’t get us wrong, after the disappointments of such serialized shows like THE EVENT, FLASHFORWARD and countless other LOST clones, we can completely appreciation that viewers want to know that showrunners first and foremost have a plan. Unfortunately, what we don’t know want to know, is the precise nature of said plan! Which is exactly why we’re left scratching our head following Kelly’s recent interview that effectively removed much of the suspense surrounding REVENGE’s next 12 episodes by revealing this.

5 Things You Didn’t Know About 2 BROKE GIRLS Star Kat Dennings

With mere hours before CBS unveils 2 BROKE GIRLS, a new comedy that, as the title suggests, sees two young women waitressing at a greasy spoon diner in the hopes of earning enough money of launching a successful business, we thought now might be as good a time as any to get to know one of those girls, the hilarious an adorable Kat Dennings.

This is not the first time she has worked with creator Michael Patrick King.
Although it probably won’t come as much of a surprise that the prolific young actress already crossed paths with 2 BROKE GIRLS co-creator Michael Patrick King over the course of her now decade long career, what sure might is where exactly their paths crossed first. Turns out, King is responsible for giving Dennings her big break. “I was actually on an episode of SEX AND THE CITY, I was maybe just 14 and I played Jenny Brier in the episode called “Hot Child in the City’,” revealed an adorkable Dennings during the recent Television Critics Press Tour in Los Angeles. “It changed my life, it really did. [Prior to that role] I was a home-schooled kid living in the forest. I didn’t have cable. I’m serious. ”

Growing up she was one broke girl.
Just how broke really was Kat Dennings growing up Bryn Mawr, just outside of Philadelphia? So strapped for cash that her family only got cable to watch her break-through role on SEX AND THE CITY. “Part of the reason why I relate to this show [2 BROKE GIRLS] so much is because we didn’t have any money when I was growing up,” said Dennings, “We had to get cable to watch that episode. So all my little homeschool friends and their moms saw Kyle MacLachlan’s ass. It was pretty incredible.” [Read more...]
