Tonight is the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, which inevitably means it’s the 72nd year in a row where fans of TV and cinema inevitably get pissed off that their favorite show/movie/performer didn’t get the proper recognition in marble and gold statuette form. Let's reminisce about bad decisions of the past, shall we?
You better watch out. You better not cry. You better not disrobe on Christmas Eve, or assume you or your family will live to see December 26, or attempt to experience goodwill and joy on Christmas. Because one of these Santa Clauses might be coming to town.
Recent repots that new American Idol judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey aren't getting along could be exaggerations, or perhaps the rumors are true that one of them could end up exiting the series if things can't be worked out at the judges table. At the very least, we may be in for a very tension-filled season come next year when the singing competition resumes.
The lovely ladies of Wisteria Lane had a long run on ABC, but after eight seasons, it was time to give the lane with so many secrets a final farewell. Season 8 didn’t disappoint, with relationship changes and even a murderous cover-up, and ABC Studios has prepared to officially ship the show off in fine fashion. Desperate Housewives: The Complete Eighth and Final Season and Desperate Housewives: The Complete Collection will both hit DVD on September 25.
If ever there was a character on Desperate Housewives who told it like it was, Karen McCluskey. The resident senior citizen of Wisteria Lane didn't make any apologies about her opinions, and given the amount of drama and nosiness that went on in the ABC drama series, that kind of honesty proved to be as vital as it was amusing. So it is with great sadness that we share the news that actress Kathryn Joosten, who played Mrs. McCluskey on Desperate Housewives - among a bevy of other TV roles over the years - has passed away.
Is GCB poised to take over the soon to be vacated Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. spot at ABC? It looks like the network is planning to test the waters there, with Desperate Housewives on the way out and decisions to be made about the next TV season.
One of the two charges laid by Nicollette Sheridan in court has been dismissed by the judge. The former Desperate Housewives star filed a case against showrunner Marc Cherry and ABC for battery and wrongful termination – today the battery charge has been thrown out.
While the Nicollette Sheridan court case has the behind the scenes drama in the spotlight, the TV drama on Wisteria Lane has received a date for its swan song. The two-hour series finale was among the list of finale dates that ABC released today; fans can now start the real countdown to the end of life on Wisteria Lane.
Nicollette Sheridan’s lawyers dropped a bombshell in court today that could change the outcome of the big trial. Was there a conspiracy to destroy electronic records of emails regarding the killing off of Sheridan’s character on Desperate Housewives passed between network execs? Apparently a little mistake may have revealed to a low-level employee on the show the plan to delete the records.
Today, Cherry took the stand to defend hitting, errr “lightly tapping” Sheridan on the head during a backstage argument on the set of the show. The producer stuck to his guns for the duration of his questioning, stating plans to kill off Sheridan’s character, Edie, were not due to the physical incident the two got into, but were due to budgetary concerns and wanting to “improve” the show for Season 6.
The drama on Wisteria Lane is coming to close this season, but the drama that went on behind the scenes on the show is just about to take the spotlight. Nicolette Sheridan, who left the show under shady circumstances back in 2009, has sued for wrongful termination and battery, and showed up in court today for the beginning of her court case against ABC and Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry.
Spoiler alert! As Desperate Housewives winds its way towards the series finale, word has gotten out that things are about to get serious on Wisteria Lane. Deadly serious, that is – apparently an episode is filming right now in which a major character from the show will meet their demise. But who will it be?
If Pan Am continues dropping, the story might be the ABC program outlived The Playboy Club just to die another day. One bad week in the ratings is not going to make or break the show, but if the ratings continue on the same downward spiral, someone at ABC might be making some tough decisions. I’d suggest if you are a fan of Pan Am, you make the effort to tune in
Who do you think is the highest paid woman on television? If you factored in reality stars and talk shows hosts the answer might be different and horrifying-- Snooki?

While football came out on top as the big winner of last night’s television, Pan Am has cause to celebrate, for delivering solid numbers and managing to top the return of Desperate Housewives, which served as the lead-in to ABC’s new drama series.
