Lost Premiere Date Included in ABC Midseason Schedule

Lost Cast

ABC’s upcoming midseason schedule will probably look like a giant gift to some…a lump of coal to others.

The good news? The Oceanic 6 will make their return and the Sacred Heart crew (a.k.a. ) will have their network debut.  The bad news? Pushing Daisies and Dirty Sexy Money will both be given (temporary? permanent?) vacations.

Emilio EstevezJenny McCarthy

Here’s a quick look at some of the casting announcements made recently:

Two and a Half Men: Now that everyone’s forgotten about his star-studded Bobby, director Emilio Estevez will soon be returning to his acting roots. In an upcoming episode of the CBS comedy, Emilio will play a drinking buddy of Charlie’s. (For those who don’t already know, Sheen is Estevez’s younger brother in real-life.) This cameo comes three years after their father, Martin Sheen, guested as Rose’s father.

Wednesday Ratings: Viewers Suffering from Post-Election Crash

Voters tired of political ads - and television in general - took a rest from the boob tube last night. This meant lower numbers for most programs and a disappointing season debut for Law & Order. (The show had its worst Wednesday ever.) Thanks to a rare mid-week airing of DWTS, ABC was tops with the viewers yesterday. Meanwhile, the Alphabet network was also tied with FOX in the demos.

Wednesday Ratings: Daisies Gets a Little Push from Obama

Although Barack Obama was the most watched person over the five major networks (a combined 26.3 million watched him on CBS, FOX and NBC), Game 5 of the World Series was the most-watched event on one network last night. And while it still lagged behind the political infomercial, Pushing Daisies did get a nice bump from bored voters.

Wednesday Ratings: ABC Premieres Start Weak

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Comedy, Drama, Prime Time, ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, The CW, Ratings,

ABC’s Wednesday lineup - a victim of last year’s writers strike - had a large hurdle to overcome last night. Unfortunately, the viewers were not where the Alphabet network left them. The audiences (along with the demos) were all over at CBS.

Get Caught Up with a Dirty Sexy Money Marathon

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, ABC, Cable, News,

DescriptionIf I haven’t already made it clear, let me say it now: I love . When I first discovered the guilty pleasure during a trip Florida, I was absolutely ecstatic. It was like discovering a lost love. The O.C.? Dallas? Melrose Place? Unfortunately, I was forced to wait until the channel was picked up in Seattle before I could be reunited with my newfound friend again.

Since that time, the channel has provided me a wealth of entertainment during program-lacking hours. Just this past Labor Day weekend, I caught myself getting sucked into a Beverly Hills, 90210 marathon. Now I’ve got to get my DVR prepared once again.

Later this month, those of you lucky enough to have SOAPnet in your area can catch up with the lives of the Darlings. The network with great taste will now be devoting 10 hours of programming to . If you like your soap operas, then this ABC drama is the one for you. Spoiled fraternal twins, politicians sleeping with transsexuals, immoral reverends with secret children - you name it, the series has it.

The Dirty marathon airs from 9am to 7pm on Saturday, September 27. Season 2 will then officially kick off four days later on Wednesday, October 1.
