Nip/Tuck Returns After A Year Away

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, Cable, FX, Nip/Tuck, Video,


Although the image of actress Sharon Gless (Colleen Rose) turning a Hollywood agent into a large Build-A-Bear is still fresh on my mind, it’s surprisingly been a year since was last on air. (The show was temporarily halted in February 2008 because of the writers’ strike.)

So where exactly did the series leave off? Julia was shot by Eden, Christian and Annie were involved in a car accident on their way to the hospital, Matt started sleeping with his half-sister and Sean was stabbed in the back (literally) by Colleen.

To get a clue as to what the remaining episodes of Season 5 have in store for us, check out the preview above. Nip/Tuck returns to FX this Tuesday, January 6th at 10:00.


FX Puts an End to The Riches

The RichesAfter enduring a ratings hit and a shortened second season, FX’s is officially being put to rest.

When the series originally debuted back in March 2007, it pulled in approximately 3.8 million viewers. Unfortunately, the Eddie Izzard/Minnie Driver drama saw a significant drop just one year later. Riches - already hurt by the writers strike - saw a 44% drop in the key 18-49 demo when Season Two kicked off in March 2008.

Fortunately for FX, this failed program won’t keep the network from celebrating. Just last month, Damages became one of the first two basic cable programs ever to be nominated for Best Drama. Meanwhile, the channel has already decided to renew Sons of Anarchy for a second season.

Shows Planning a Return in 2009

Kathy Griffin

While it’s probably be safe to assume that Fringe and 90210 would both be handed 2009 renewal notices - especially since they’ve already been given full season orders - this television season is still far too young.

Here is, though, what we do know already about next year’s programming calendar:

  • Big Brother (CBS) - Season 11
  • Entourage (HBO) - Season 6
  • Flashpoint (CBS) - Season 2
  • Here Come the Newlyweds (ABC) - Season 2
  • Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List (Bravo) - Season 5
  • My Boys (TBS) - Season 3
  • Sons of Anarchy (FX) - Season 2
  • True Blood (HBO) - Season 2

FX Announces Shield End Date

The Shield's Michael Chiklis

When this year began, followers of were still uncertain when their FX series would return. Thankfully, they at least now know when it will end.

Although Season 6 debuted last April, the show’s seventh - and final - season was pushed back to Fall 2008. Surprisingly, the scheduling decision had nothing to do with the . The network simply didn’t want the program to compete with with the Summer Olympics. (As if they couldn’t have aired repeats for a whole two weeks.)

The Emmy-nominated series, which still has 13 more episodes in the vault, has now been given a November 25th end date. While that may seem like a short stint, the 3-month run is actually in line with the previous seasons. And from what I hear, these final hours will be something to remember.

Michael J. Fox to Rescue FX Fans

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Drama, FX, Gossip,

Michael J. Fox

He captured our hearts as ultra-Republican, straight-laced Alex P. Keaton on Family Ties…and then he broke our hearts when he announced he suffers from Parkinson’s. didn’t actually say he’d never act again…but he did make the possibility sound somewhat remote. So, it is a happy (and rare) event that he will soon appear in exactly four episodes of the FX hit Rescue Me.

According to the general manager and president of the network, Fox’s character will be “very funny” and “very original.” He will play a man who is confined to a wheelchair, the new boyfriend of Janet (played by Andrea Roth). His first appearance will air on the show’s fifth season premiere, slated for the spring of 2009.

Fox made the decision to retire from full time acting in 2000, after announcing two years before he was suffering from Parkinson’s disease, which causes muscular deterioration and tremors. He appeared in several episodes of Boston Legal in 2006 and has made a few television appearances since leaving the full time scene.
