TV Bubble Watch 2012: We Irresponsibly Speculate On Which of Your Favorite ABC Shows Will Live to See Another Season

With the Network’s traditional May UpFronts just around the corner, theTVaddict.com thought now might be as good a time as any to take a closer look at the potential fates of your favorite shows.

BODY OF PROOF
You Take the Good: Hovering in and around the 2 million mark in terms of coveted 18-49 viewers, BODY OF PROOF ended a fairly middling season on a ratings high point.
You Take the Bad: Stars Dana Delany and Jeri Ryan deserve so much better than this tedious write-by-numbers procedural.
You Take Them Both and There You Have… Our Prediction: Despite Delany and Ryan’s value on the international market, BODY OF PROOF will not make the cut when ABC announces their new fall slate in mid-May. [Read more...]

Today’s TV Addict Top 5: Questions with GCB Star Mark Deklin

As ratings quietly uptick on GCB, ABC’s newest addition to its Sunday night lineup that chronicles the soapy and scandalous misadventures of what some might call a little-too-tight-knit of a churchgoing community deep in the heart of Dallas, theTVaddict.com thought now might be as good a time as any to catch up with a big part of the reason why. Off screen you know him as Mark Deklin, the talented actor whose mile long imdb resume includes stints on everything from BETTER OFF TED and BIG LOVE to LAS VEGAS and NIP/TUCK. On screen you know him currently as Blake Reilly, one half of GCB’s most interesting marriages. See for yourself, after the jump. [Read more...]

Ask the Addict: Spoilers for SHAMELESS, PRIVATE PRACTICE, GCB, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, HAWAII FIVE-0 & More!

Last Sunday’s penultimate SHAMELESS of the season was off the hook! Any idea if we’ll ever see Ian’s very-random hook-up again? — Nick
The TV Addict: Funny you should ask, because we just so happened to have finished watching Sunday’s fantastic second season finale and can assure you that Ian’s one night stand doesn’t just come back to haunt him, but does so in a way we didn’t — but probably should have — seen coming. Cooler still, unlike the SHAMELESS’ first season, which ended on somewhat of a cliffhanger, Sunday’s second season ends on more of a positive note for those already dreading the interminable nine month wait until Season three.

Any word on when poor Erica will finally kick the bucket on PRIVATE PRACTICE? — Jenn
The TV Addict: While we’re hesitant to pinpoint an exact end date for poor Erica and the nightmarish time spent on PRIVATE PRACTICE this season, we can let you in a little something interesting courtesy of a source close to production. In the upcoming fifth season finale, a character will, in a court of law no less, be accused of “pulling a Kevorkian!” Read into that what you will.

Are Barney and Quinn seriously going to move in with one another on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER? — Dylan
The TV Addict: Yes. And it’s gonna be Legen… wait for it…. Oh, who are we kidding! The only thing we’re sure of when it comes to what the future holds for HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER is that when the show finally does return from its traditional hiatus (March Madness, indeed), it will do so with an episode that has all the trappings of one destined to become a classic. After-all, nothing says Legen… wait for it… Dary like an episode that sees Ted, Marshall and Barney embark on another “trilogy time” in which they get together every three years to watch the “Star Wars” trilogy and envision what their lives will be like in another three years.

Today’s TV Addict Top 5: Questions with GCB Star David James Elliott

For those of you who dismissed GCB as little more than DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES in Dallas, we’ve got two words for you: Look closer. Despite a handful of similarities, GCB — which chronicles the deliciously fun lives of what some might call a little-too-tight-knit Texas community — is anything but. Which is to say, unlike its lead in which continues to limp to its long-awaited conclusion, GCB is a whole lotta fun. And a big part of the reason is the you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it marriage between Kristin Chenoweth’s Carlene and David James Elliott’s Ripp Cockburn. The latter of whom we recently caught up with to talk about all things GCB. See for yourself, after the jump. [Read more...]

Today’s TV Addict Top 5: Questions with GCB Star Kristin Chenoweth

This Sunday, ABC will give new meaning to the phrase “something wicked this way comes” when it takes the wraps off its newest sudsy series GCB. Created by Robert Harling (Soapdish, Steel Magnolias, THE FIRST WIVES CLUBS) and produced by Darren Star (SEX AND THE CITY, MELROSE PLACE) GCB follows reformed mean girl Amanda Vaughn (Leslie Bibb), who after the untimely death of her Bernie Madoff meets Eliot Spitzer-esque husband, must move back to Dallas and face her overbearing mother and former high school “friends.” And here to preview just how “welcome” Amanda’s old classmates intend to make her feel is none other than the unofficial president of the welcoming committee herself, Carlene Cockburn. One part Mean Girl, one part Mother Teresa, all parts actress Kristin Chenoweth, who, was only too happy to talk about what it has been like playing a character so outlandish and scheme-driven that she may in fact give GLEE’s Sue Sylvester a run for her money.
