Long-Awaited Buffy the Vampire Slayer Reunion

It has been nearly five years since that fateful May night when BTVS fans witnessed the end of their beloved TV series. The following years, fans have intently watched as their favorite characters have branched off to new projects, leaving little hope of a BTVS movie, which so many “Buffy” lovers have longed and hoped for. Unfortunately, there are still no concrete plans of a movie, but fans have the Paley Center for Media (formerly …

7th Heaven Series Finale Set

Am I experiencing deja vu? It seemed like last year was going to be the series finale of 7th Heaven, then they returned for yet another season after the merger of WB and UPN (to become CW). Yes, that did happen, but this year they are really wrapping things up. Really. And you know, they can’t really complain too much—7th Heaven has been the longest running family drama on television, with its first show airing …

The axe just keeps falling—the latest casualty is the CW’s drama Runaway. With only four episodes aired, this new series barely got off the ground to provide itself. This is the one about a family on the run, when dad (Donnie Wahlberg) is accused of murder. Of course, it’s all just a misunderstanding, as he is really innocent. The series aired Mondays at 9:00 p.m., then CW moved Runaway to Sunday, but the move didn’t make …

A recent Nielsen Media Research study found that the average American home has more TV sets than people. The average number of people per home is 2.55, while the number of TVs averages 2.73. The availability of flat-screen TVs impacts the results, since it’s easier than ever to put sets most anywhere. The research shows that half of American homes have three or more TVs, with 19 percent having just one. Compared to 1975, the …

Andre Bauer, who was unable to fulfill his commitment to the drama ER, has been replaced by Forest Whitaker. Whitaker will play a man who comes into the ER with a cough, but quickly faces a paralyzing stroke—his story arc will take place over five episodes. Whitaker continues to be busy with the FX series The Shield, returning for at least the first two episodes of the next season. Whitaker is most famous for his many …

Let’s just hope his acting is better than his rapping… Kevin Federline will be appearing on an upcoming episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, according to People magazine. The announcement comes shortly after his debut rapping at the Teen Choice Awards, which was panned by many critics and people with good taste. This of course isn’t his first time on the small screen, as he and wife Britney Spears experimented with the reality TV genre …

Whoopi Goldberg Will Hate Chris Too, This Fall

This Fall, Whoopi Goldberg will be guest-starring on two episodes of the UPN (or CW by then) Chris Rock comedy Everybody Hates Chris.  Word is that she will play a new neighbor of Chris’ (Tyler James Williams) family, and that Chris will fall for her granddaughter. This could be very good for the show.  I hope her name gets a few more people to tune in, because while Chris has been well-received by critics, its ratings …

New Rules Give Smaller Shows a Chance at an Emmy

This year’s Emmy nominations will be announced July 6 and perhaps new nominating guidelines will make 2006 the “year of the underdog”. Last year showed some progress, with nominations gained by new hits such as Lost, Desperate Housewives and the recently-cancelled, cult-hit Arrested Development (which won seven awards last year). Apparently some rules have been instated this year that will give newer shows (and shows from less popular networks, such as UPN, FX, and the WB) …

America’s Next Top Model: Where Have You Gone?

I have to believe I’m not the only one going through ANTM withdrawal. With frenzied excitement, each week I’d sit on the edge of my futon watching another walk-off, model-off episode. But now with the winner declared (go Tiffany, ain’t nothin’ wrong with a lil’ gap my southern friend!) my high has crashed. Oh, I’ve tried to get my Tyra fix filled by watching her daily talk show, but it’s a poor substitute. Nothing hits …
