Kelly Ripa Returns To 'Live!' Alongside Michael Strahan After A Week's Absence


Kelly Ripa Michael Strahan ABC

Following a week of tense drama and speculation, Kelly Ripa finally returned to ‘Live!’ on Tuesday (April 26th) for the first time since her co-host Michael Strahan announced his departure to ‘Good Morning America’.

Walking out hand-in-hand with Strahan in a show of unity that not all viewers thought was entirely convincing, Ripa addressed the potentially awkward situation head on by speaking to the audience before starting the show.

“Guys, guys, guys – our long national nightmare is over,” she quipped to laughs from the studio. “Look, I am fairly certain that there are trained professional snipers with tranquilizer darts in case I drift too far off message.”

Italia Ricci ABC

Chasing Life premiered on ABC last night (10th June) and the Steve Miner-directed first episode of ABC Family's new comedy drama adaptation was delivered to the American small screen.

Christian Slater's 'Mind Games' Cancelled, Replaced By 'Wife Swap'


Christian Slater Steve Zahn ABC

ABC have ruthlessly axed Christian Slater's Mind Games midseason after low rated airings. For the next two weeks, the network will use the Tuesday 10pm slot for extra samplings of promising midseason drama Resurrection. Beginning on April 15, the network will launch season 3 of Celebrity Wife Swap.

In fairness, Mind Games wasn't very good and the writing was on the wall since it debuted to a 1.1 demo rating two days after the Oscar telecast - when the show was promoted. It dived to a horrendous 0.6 in its second week and matched that rating again on Tuesday. It's the third ABC show to be cancelled in the Tuesday 10pm timeslot, following Lucky 7 and Killer Women.

Grey’s Anatomy Losing An Original - Shonda Rhimes Is Upset


Sandra Oh ABC Shonda Rhimes

As ABC’s top scripted drama, and having run for nearly 10 seasons now, Grey’s Anatomy’s characters are household names, and familiar faces, too. And that’s why Sandra Oh's exit has hit showrunner Shonda Rimes so hard.

Oh plays the confident Dr. Cristina Yang, and has done so for eight years on the popular medical drama. “Creatively, I really feel like I gave it my all, and I feel ready to let her go,” she revealed of her exit. “It’s such an interesting thing to play a character for so long and to actually get the sense that she wants to be let go as well.” (The Mail)

Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D Promises To Be More Than Avengers Spin Off


Joss Whedon The Avengers ABC

The critics got a first glance at what Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D looks like yesterday, (Sunday Aug 4) when they were treated to a special screening of the first episode. And those same critics got to grill producer Joss Whedon afterwards.

The show - created for ABC by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen – is set in the same universe as creations like Iron Man; it contains the super-human criminals that S.H.I.E.L.D will have to battle each week and takes place after The Avengers’ Battle of New York.

"Every week it's not going to be some new hero," Whedon explains. "There could be a device, there could be a mystery.” The show will focus on characters who aren’t blessed (or cursed) with superpowers, rather it will look at the intricacies of teamwork and how the group work together to bring down the threat.

LeAnn Rimes And Eddie Cibrian Fell In Love On Set Of "Northern Lights," But At 40, What's Happened To His Career?

When Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian fell in love on the set of Northern Lights, things were already looking a little bleak for the American actor. Here was a guy with the looks of a genuine Hollywood leading star - a guy who had served his time on U.S. television (Sunset Beach), like many A-listers before him, George Clooney, Kevin Bacon, etc. So why has Cibrian - who turned 40 last week - lost his way in the tangled world of Hollywood?

In 2006, Cibrian joined the cast of Fox show Vanished midway through the series. The show focused on the disappearance of the wife of a Georgia senator, which is revealed as being part of a wider conspiracy. The family of the missing woman, a pair of FBI agents and a journalist are drawn into the ever-evolving mystery - sounds alright doesn't it? Well, it wasn't. And it was cancelled after nine of the thirteen episodes. Yep, that means Fox deemed it wasn't even worth revealing where the wife of the Georgian senator ended up.

Mad Men Recap Of The Crash: Is Don Draper Becoming Self-Aware?


Jon Hamm ABC

Don Draper has enough flashbacks to his childhood when he isn’t on drugs, so on the latest episode of Mad Men you’d have hoped that the show’s main protagonist would be tripping out with something a little more left field when he is injected with a drugs cocktail from the mysterious Dr Hecht. But nope, it’s back to his salad days for him.

Anyway, the main thing that The Week seems to be focusing on in latest episode, The Crash, is that Draper is starting to show some signs of self-awareness – even if he won’t let on to any of the rest of the cast. He’s always been a hard ass, and more than happy to screw over people for his own gains, but there are a couple of lines where the TV mogul seems to be fully aware of his own behavior. "The timbre of my voice is as important as the content," Don tells Ken at one point "I don't know whether I'll be forceful or submissive, but I must be there in the flesh." See what we mean? He’s fully aware that what he’s saying isn’t what he’s meaning.

The thing is, the show’s other main characters are starting to tire of this. Sylvia’s pretty much done with him, while Ted’s really annoyed with him too, despite only recently merging Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce with Cutler, Gleason and Chaough. His kids are drifting further apart from him too, so with five episodes left of the season, is Don going to finally get found out? Everything seems to be pointing towards a big fat ‘Yes’.
