David Duchovny Comes to Showtime

I used to be the biggest David Duchovny fan—you know, when I could get my weekly dose of him on The X-Files. Now that he’s not on my TV every week, my adoration for him has faded slightly, but I’ve still got love for Duchov. Plus, you can always hear his voiceover work on that Pedigree commercial. His voice is so smooth. The great news is that he’ll once again be hitting the small screen, …

The 2007 Golden Globe Awards

  Ladies and Gents – I can’t tell you how excited I am about the 64th Annual Golden Globe Awards tonight!!  It’s been a whole five months since I’ve done minute-by-minute coverage of an awards show and I’ve been dying to unload.  (And yes—I am ignoring the fact that the People’s Choice Awards even exist). The Academy Awards may get the largest viewing audience, but the Golden Globes telecast is the only one I really love …

David Duchovny Comes to the Small Screen (Again!)

Ever since David Duchovny left The X-Files, there has been a little empty place in my heart. Fear not, Duchovny fans, for he returns again to the small screen! This time, however, he’ll be working with Showtime on two projects, according to a report from Variety. One series in the works would have Duchovny starring as a writer addicted to sex and drugs—who is trying to raise a child on his own. The pilot does not …

Fewer Gay Roles This Season

  The ending of Will & Grace has taken away two gay roles from our boob tubes this season—and those who care about equal representation for gays should be concerned. Did you know that of all the regular characters on major networks last year, less than 2% of them in primetime were gay, lesbian or bisexual?  And the numbers don’t fare much better this year.  GLAAD (The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) has been analyzing …

Come and get it—MSN Video has the first episode of this season’s Weeds. The Showtime show, starring Mary-Louise Parker, has become a critical darling and Golden Globe winner. The season premiere aired on Monday and now the complete episode can be seen for free on MSN Video. Good news for sad little folk like myself who don’t have Showtime and don’t have access to cool shows like Weeds. Mary-Louise Parker stars as a suburban mom who …

Showtime Cancels Huff

After two low-rated but critically acclaimed seasons, Showtime has pulled the plug on its drama Huff, according to a report in Variety yesterday.  The cast of the show, that focuses on a psychiatrist played by Hank Azaria and his family, was apparently notified earlier in the week.  The show was noted for a huge Emmy campaign after its first low-rated season, resulting in an Emmy for Blythe Danner.  A second season only aired, however, because Showtime …

Cybill Shepard is coming back to television. She’ll be joining the cast of Showtime’s lesbian-themed drama The L Word. It’s the first major network show commitment for Shepherd since starring in the 1995-98 CBS comedy Cybill. Shepherd will play the president of the college where Jennifer Beals’ character attends graduate school—a married mother who suddenly begins to question her sexuality.  The L Word has had some big names in the cast at one point or another …

Marlee Matlin, known for her superb acting talent and bringing deaf characters to movies and television, will join the fourth season of The L Word, airing in 2007 on Showtime. The always intriguing, often controversial series follows the trials and tribulations of a group of eclectic lesbians, boasting such talent as a post-Flashdance Jennifer Beals and the annoying yet unbelievably sexy Mia Kirshner. Word has it that Beal’s character Bette will develop quite the thing …

Sharon Stone Knocked Out On Television And At Box Office

The Huff: Season 2 Premiere, guest starring Sharon Stone, Sunday night on Showtime, was less than a lusty success with viewers.  According to the AC Nielsen Company, the initial airing of the episode was watched by a scanty 372,000 viewers, losing 36% of Huff‘s lead in show, the Oscar-winning Crash. It was a difficult weekend for the 48-year-old sex star elsewhere, too.  Movie-goers didn’t exactly roll out the Welcome mat, much less the red carpet, for …

Showtime Renews Weeds For Second Season

Watching a Weeds rerun on Showtime Friday night, I was reminded that the Mary-Louise Parker, Elizabeth Perkins series is one of the smartest half hours on television.  From it’s contagious opening theme song, “Little Boxes,” to its dark, offbeat characters, and skewed situations. Weeds is always worthwhile. The series is a filmed comedy noir about the dirty secrets just beneath the squeaky-clean tract facade of fictional, suburban Agrestic, California.  Parker plays a widow and mom …
