Blue Bloods: Thursday (November 28) at 10pm »
Thanksgiving is coming for the Reagan family, too -- but if their anticipation of the holiday wasn't tempered by crime concerns, it wouldn't be "Blue Bloods."
Maria (Marisa Ramirez) had a particularly rough time with family matters in "Bad Blood," Friday's (Nov. 22) episode of the CBS police drama written by co-executive producer Daniel Truly and directed by Robert Harmon, who also has worked with series star Tom Selleck on all but one of the "Jesse Stone" TV movies.
A murder investigation began for Maria and Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) outside a Spanish Harlem bar, but they soon went in to interrogate the very enthusiastic, soccer-watching patrons. They came up empty on suspects, until a security tape revealed someone Maria recognized (guest star Kirk Acevedo, "Oz") .
Danny and Maria went to find the man, nicknamed "Tic-Tac" -- and while chasing him, Maria made a side run at him, sending him through a store's glass door. »
Dining out can be dangerous.
So Frank (Tom Selleck) discovered after having dinner with Angelo Gallo (guest star Chazz Palminteri) -- a boyhood friend who happened to be a Mob lawyer -- in Friday's (Nov. 15) "Blue Bloods" episode "Justice Served," written by series co-executive producer Siobhan Byrne O'Connor. The men left the restaurant jovially, but right after Frank's car pulled away, the attorney was felled by two bullets to the back.
Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) was getting a taste of another side of the law by serving jury duty. Young defendant Deshawn Williams (J. Mallory-McCree) was on trial for the murder of a deli cashier, and when the jurors went into deliberation, only one held out for a "not guilty" verdict. Guess who?

The "Blue Bloods" star actually didn't call her right away after she gave him her number. "Guys, we like to act like we're in control of everything. And typically I am," Wahlberg admitted on CBS' "The Talk" on Monday (Nov. 11). "I am that kind of guy. I'm generally a very smooth operator."
So what was his reasoning for not calling right away? "They always do this question on 'Family Feud.' Survey says, how long should you wait before you call someone when they give you their number?" Wahlberg days. "And it always says one or two days, but I think it's more like one or two weeks."
Wahlberg was then met with boos and shocked gasps from the audience, and he went on to clarify his argument. »
The first week of November sweeps saw writers on our favorite shows raising their game. Zap2it collected some of the best line of the TV week of Nov. 3 for your viewing pleasure, including quotes from the likes of "The Good Wife," "New Girl" and "The Big Bang Theory." Enjoy!
"You don't realize how overused the word 'breathtaking' is until something actually takes your breath away." -- Scott Pelley, on driving a Lamborghini, on "60 Minutes"
"I am so upset! I'm stuck in a lie." -- Han (Matthew Moy), on "2 Broke Girls"

Death was plentiful in the Reagans' cases on Friday's INov. 8) episode of CBS' "Blue Bloods," as signaled by the title of the story: "Drawing Dead," written by Ian Biederman, one of the show's executive producers.
Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) and Maria (Marisa Ramirez) looked into the murder of a "Wall Street guy" in Tribeca, with no struggle and no theft indicated. Subsequent interrogation revealed the victim had argued with his partners over wanting to bring in an art dealer, someone inexperienced in stockbroking.
Meanwhile, Jamie (Will Estes) and Eddie (Vanessa Ray) responded to a call of shots being fired, leading to a street pursuit of three suspects. As the cops captured two, Jamie heard another shot fired and ran to its location -- where he found Officer James Montero (Elliot Villar) kneeling over a wounded teen, with an angry mob yelling accusations on the order of, 'That cop shot him in the back! »
Kevin Kline is on fine form as the smalltown high school teacher outed as gay by a former pupil-turned-film star (Matt Dillon) at the Academy Awards. It wouldn't matter so much but Kline is engaged to Emily (Joan Cusack) and TV reporter Tom Selleck suspects he might be in denial. The actual Oscar statuette used in the film is the one Kline won for A Fish Called Wanda. »
For one Reagan police brother, the problem was an ex-gang mamber. For the other, it was an ex-girlfriend.
Jamie (Will Estes) and Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) each had concerns in Friday's (Nov. 1) episode of CBS' "Blue Bloods," "Growing Boys," directed by former actor Eric Laneuville ("St. Elsewhere"). Jamie's problem involved a threat to his career, while Danny's posed a mild threat to his marriage.
Shooting hoops with former gang member Tomas (Jeff Lima) in the Juvenile Robbery Intervention Program initiated by Frank (Tom Selleck), Jamie was dismayed to see the youth hassled by some of his earlier comrades. The trouble escalated when Jamie witnessed Tomas being chased by the others, prompting him to give pursuit and yell, "Police!"
The chase ended tragically when one of the potential assailants ran into the path of a car that struck him, causing injuries that left the sudden victim possibly paralyzed from the waist down. »
Things are going to get hairy. They always do in Movember, the charity sprout-a-thon that has somehow made moustaches not only respectable but also aspirational. So if you're thinking about taking part and are looking for a bristling example on which to model yourself, here are some of the most notable 'staches from TV history. Think of it as the Tufty Club.

Every list of eminent moustaches (on TV or otherwise) always begins or ends with one man: former Navy Seal turned Hawaiian housesitter Thomas Magnum. In a show packed with memorable signifiers – lurid shirts, lush scenery, a goddamn Ferrari – Magnum's luxuriant moustache still dominated, setting off »

Len Cariou has had great successes onstage, but he's happy television is his prime home now.
The star of such hit musicals as "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," "A Little Night Music" and "Applause" is in his fourth season as Henry Reagan, family patriarch and former New York police commissioner - the position now occupied by his son Frank (Tom Selleck) - on CBS' Friday drama "Blue Bloods."
Cariou is guaranteed at least one scene a week by the Reagan dinner-table gathering, and he's happy with the job in general.
"It's a great pleasure," he tells Zap2it. "We all have a great relationship, and I think it gives the show a uniqueness for a cop show. We get to know the family members and their different perspectives, and it's a very pleasant working situation. It's like I've gone to heaven."
Cariou credits that in large part to Selleck, »
Vanessa Ray discovered that to be very much the case when she joined the CBS Friday drama at the start of its current season. She hasn't been invited to one of the weekly on-camera dinners -- at least not yet -- as Jamie Reagan's (Will Estes) new NYPD partner Eddie Janko, but she's found Emmy winner Selleck just as paternal and protective as his alter ego, Commissioner Frank Reagan.
"I was very nervous and excited to meet him," the good-humored Ray tells Zap2it. "I've worked with a couple of these really cool, great actors like Ted Danson and Glenn Close [on 'Damages']. They all have their own presence when they walk into a room, and I was excited to see what Tom Selleck's 'space' was going to be like. »
The personal and the professional have a way of merging for the Reagans of "Blue Bloods."
Such was the case again in "Lost and Found," Friday's (Oct. 25) episode of the CBS police drama written by co-executive producer Daniel Truly. Frank (Tom Selleck) was alarmed to learn Father Markhum (Frank Wood, "The Newsroom"), the NYPD's chaplain, had been stopped for driving while intoxicated ... "the fourth time in two months," police chief Dino (John Ventimiglia) revealed.
The clergyman had rear-ended another car, and Frank worried that intervening would appear to be favored treatment -- something the arresting officer already had furnished by letting the priest sleep off his condition. And Frank realized such handling was "the reason I never heard about the other three Dwi's."
Later, Frank entered a confessional to talk to the chaplain, and told him to turn himself in: "Even priests do penance, Jerry."

Here's a mystery that needs solving - why are the Hollywood executives of today so keen to plunder the detective shows of yesteryear?
Whether it's Oscar winner Octavia Spencer in the newly-announced Murder She Wrote remake, or NBC's ill-fated Ironside reboot, or the upcoming Remington Steele sequel... many of TV's top cops are having a revival.
But which other classic 'tecs are ripe for reinvention? Here's five cold cases we'd like to see revisited...
The challenge here would be to find two stars who could replicate the chemistry of the original show's leads. Could any young buck hope to match the charisma and wit of Bruce Willis?
That's vintage Willis, not grumpy-old-fart-in-a-dressing-gown Willis.
No, not that comic book lot »
Now in its fourth season, the CBS police drama has cast Kirk Acevedo as the brother of Maria Baez (Marisa Ramirez) -- NYPD detective Danny Reagan's (Donnie Wahlberg) partner -- in the Friday, Nov. 22, episode, Zap2it has learned exclusively. His sudden reappearance is guaranteed to make things less than comfortable for his sister.
They have a strained relationship to begin with, since he's a longtime criminal. He's trying to leave that life behind, but a "wrong place, wrong time" situation keeps him there, likely putting an added strain on Maria's camaraderie with justice-devoted Danny as she struggles with professional duty vs. family loyalty.
Just because something is not true, doesn't make it a lie. As "The Truth About Lying" shows, when every moment of our lives is posted online, perception can quickly become reality.
The first incident was Danny's murder case, which wasn't a murder at all. But it was hard to determine that fact from the video. It truly looked as though the Hulk was throwing Amy in front of that train. But my fear of Bernard quickly turned to sympathy as the huge man with mental illness could barely communicate that he was trying to save the young girl who had always been nice to him.
Unfortunately, when Amy's own brother turned on her, she couldn't figure out how to go on. I couldn't help but feel sorry for Amy's parents who not only lost one child to suicide but would have to live with the knowledge the other sibling had driven her to it. »

Tom Selleck is a formidable force for any other performer to match.
So is "Cheers" alum Bebe Neuwirth, and the two Emmy winners squared off in Friday's (Oct. 18) CBS "Blue Bloods" episode "The Truth About Lying," written by series co-executive producer Brian Burns (brother of actor-filmmaker Edward Burns).
Neuwirth played Kelly Peterson, an inspector general assigned to examine the NYPD and its policies, something Frank (Selleck) expectedly wasn't thrilled about -- though he was as cordial as possible to her face.
However, she quickly called him on his resentment of someone trying to "fix what isn't broke:" She told him, "I'm not good at small talk, either," and it was clear they'd be going toe-to-toe again as she left his office after their brief introduction.
Chasing a suspect through the streets, Eddie (Vanessa Ray) barely missed being struck with him by a pipe -- but she eventually tackled and cuffed him, »
A whole mess of factors goes into what projects a director takes on. A young up-and-comer might be happy just to get his first directing credit, regardless of what it might actually be about. A director who's been around the block might pick up a project way outside of their wheelhouse just for the experience. And the promise of a couple bucks doesn't hurt, either.
In other words, sometimes you just can't pin a filmmaker down. Here are some rather odd and unexpected director-movie pairings.
Between "12 Angry Men," "Network," "Dog Day Afternoon" and "Serpico," it's fair to call the late Sidney Lumet an all-time great. But considering most of Lumet's career was dedicated to crime and drama, "The Wiz," a musical "The Wizard of Oz" adaptation set in Harlem (and, later, Oz), is a definite oddball in his canon. Starring such powerhouses of African-American culture as Michael Jackson, »
