Charlie McDermott on directing THE MIDDLE and what comes next!

Over the past 8 seasons, we’ve gotten to watch Charlie McDermott play Axl Heck, under-achieving oldest child on THE MIDDLE, as he navigated the waters of growing up in a small town. Season 8 has found Axl applying himself (as Axl can) as he finishes his business degree and gets ready to enter the adult world. Behind the scenes, Charlie has taken on a new task as well, that of director, officially earning that title after taking his turn behind

We sat down at round table interviews with the cast and creative team behind The CW’s hit series RIVERDALE to talk about, among many things, romance, murder mystery, parenting, plans for a second season, and the much-hyped return of a one Mrs Mary Andrews (Molly Ringwald). Luke Perry and KJ Apa told us about how Mary will impact Fred and Archie; Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart previewed more Bughead, how their relationship might fare through the rest of the murder

My Take On…NBC’s smart, funny TRIAL & ERROR

Absurdly hilarious and hilariously absurd, that’s the simplest description of NBC’s latest comedy, the true-crime-parody series TRIAL & ERROR that starts tonight with a back to back post-THIS-IS-US (10/9c) preview. Starring John Lithgow as Larry Henderson, a roller-skating, er, roller-cizing poetry professor who maybe murdered his wife, represented in court by Nicholas D’Agosto’s Josh Legal, a “NorthEastern” lawyer from New York trying his first murder in the fictional East Peck, SC, the show provides an inside look at the case in

First Look: New Josie & The Pussycats on RIVERDALE this week!

I was talking TV (as I do) with someone on the phone last night and the first show I brought up this week was RIVERDALE because I’m loving it so much.  Was excited to get  a sneak peek at their GREAT new Donna Summer cover (“I Feel Love”) – check it out (and did you notice that special guest Pussycat this week?): WB tells us: Josie McCoy is on the rise, and with the help of her Pussycats, Riverdale’s determined

Fiona Dourif talks ABC’s WHEN WE RISE

ABC’s inspirational miniseries WHEN WE RISE, written and created by Academy Award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, “chronicles the real-life personal and political struggles, set-backs and triumphs of a diverse family of LGBT men and women who helped pioneer one of the last legs of the US Civil Rights movement from its turbulent infancy in the 20th centruy to the once unfathomable successes of today.”  Fiona Dourif plays one of those pioneers, Diane Jones, founder of The Women’s Building, an

Quick Take: THE DETOUR S2 on TBS is still amazing

TBS’ THE DETOUR was the biggest surprise for me last season among a 5-comedy surprise that was their whole line-up of new shows. The Jason Jones / Natalie Zea comedy followed the misadventures of The Parker family after a vacation is derailed by Nate’s (Jones) secret unemployment and plan for revenge. As they made their way from upstate New York to Florida, by van, each week chronicled a new misstep while Nate faced scrutiny in a windowless-room. The big surprise
