ReelzChannel Celebrity Rundown
Donald Trump is pulling out of moderating the Republican presidential debate because he's not happy with the Gop field and wants to leave the door open for a run. It's either that, or the fact that Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, and Michele Bachmann said they would not participate.

Take a clueless but well-meaning family, a grandma who can’t stay lucid and the baby of a serial killer, and you’ve got the hilarious adventures of the Chance family on Fox’s Raising Hope.

TVLine is reporting that Lee Majors (The Six Million Dollar Man) and Shirley Jones (The Partridge Family) have signed on to play the parents of Raising Hope patriarch Burt Chance (Garret Dillahunt) this season on the Fox comedy. There's been no details released about the extent of their stay or what brings them around the family, but this is another classic TV get for the Chance family. Recently, Richard Dean Anderson (Macgyver) was announced as another guest star for the upcoming season, which is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, September 20th at 9:30.
This will be another interesting look at the extended family of Virginia, Burt, Jimmy, and Maw Maw, as last season we got to meet Cousin Mike and Virginia's cousin Delilah (Amy Sedaris). One can only assume that the presence of Burt's parents will lead to some pretty fantastic flashbacks to young Burt and Virginia, an element of »

This week’s episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day was good for one thing: reminding me how much I love John de Lancie: I remember thinking, watching him as Q on Star Trek: The Next Generation, that there’s no way those black eyes of his could be real: But I met him at a convention once, and danged if those big luminous peepers aren’t his after all: Stupid pre-Internet cult shows: not enough stuff online. This is the only decent image I could find of de Lancie in the awesome steampunky Western action dramedy Legend (also starring boyfriend Richard Dean Anderson), which nobody watched but me: I’m posting pictures like these every weekday-ish, of a man who is attractive and desirable, because I like to look, dammit -- and because the female gaze doesn’t have to be such serious business.

Richard Dean Anderson will bring laughs to Fox’s Raising Hope this season — and he’ll do it by combining a wad of chewing gum with some pipe cleaners, a teaspoon of drain cleaner, and a transistor radio.

Writes Deadline in an exclusive report, "Depp had fond memories of the ABC telepic and series The Night Stalker, and got Disney's Rich Ross and Sean Bailey sparked on a pitch for Depp to potentially play tabloid reporter Carl Kolchak. Originated by Darren McGavin, Kolchak was the dogged journalist first seen in the 1972 telepic (where he hunted a killer who was draining the blood of beautiful girls on the Las Vegas strip) and later in the ABC series Kolchak: The Night Stalker. Kolchak's investigations always seemed to lead him to the doorstep of vampires, zombies, werewolves and aliens. For its time, it was pretty scary stuff. The studio will go out to writers shortly. David Kennedy will be exec producer." Deadline failed to mention that there was a 1973 TV movie called The Night Strangler (co-starring Richard Dean Anderson as the creature, soon to be cast as Oscar Goldman in The »
Who would have guessed Richard Dean Anderson's role from the hit '80s show "MacGyver", would still be part of pop culture nearly thirty years later. "MacGyver" has even become part of our everyday slang... here's how the Urban Dictionary breaks it down:
v. To use ingenuity to fix or remedy a problem using only the tools available at hand.
n. Someone who can regularly cobble together solutions to problems using only the tools available at hand.
And those skills can come in handy for any of us, especially when a bad hair day strikes... InStyle ...

Justin and Kate make me crazy. They’re a fabulous couple who light up the screen with their chemistry. Yet in "Ultravinyl" we saw more glimpses into why their marriage deteriorated.
The case of the fraudulent plumber shed light on their communication issues. They either accused one another of letting the plumber get away with shoddy work or they fell back into that flirty banter they do so well.
Even when Justin came by to have a real talk, it quickly turned to sex. Who knew that great chemistry could be a relationship killer? As usual, I enjoyed their fun, sexy side - but I hope we see these two have a more serious discussion about their issues by the end of the season.

When it comes to her clients Kate Reed is fearless. When it comes to her personal life, not so much.
Kate was all smiles and flirty banter when she met Justin for dinner, right up until he mentioned their divorce. They filed for divorce six months ago and Justin wanted to hammer out the details. I never realized how much denial Kate was in until her face fell and she bolted for the door.
Turns out, Justin’s tired of the great sex and fun conversation. Actually, he’d just gotten to the point where he couldn't pretend this was all he wanted. Despite the love, their marriage was broken and he was unwilling to stick his head in the sand and pretend their issues didn’t exist. I could see his point.
When Kate used information Justin had given her to blackmail an opposing attorney, Justin was furious, but Kate made light of it. »

There are moments in life that change everything. By the conclusion of "The Two Richards," I was left wondering if Kate Reed experienced one of these.
Think about it: Richard’s accident was a moment that changed his life forever. Could David Smith be just as significant to Kate? I was thrilled we got back to this mystery, but it certainly left us with more questions than answers. Not that I'm complaining.
Teddy Reed left a quarter of his estate to Smith and then he turned around and signed that inheritance over to Kate. Not Spencer Reed, not Lauren Reed, just Kate. Why?!?
Sarah Shahi gave us a subtle performance that was all in Kate’s eyes. Her intensity, her tenacity... even Smith knew she wasn’t walking away. He and Teddy shared a secret and Kate won’t rest until she finds out what it was.
A huge plus »

Her grieving process took a surprising twist at the end of episode two. The reading of the late Teddy Reed's will revealed that, while three-quarters of his estate went to, in equal measure, Kate and her brother, Spencer (Ethan Embry), and their stepmother, Lauren (Virginia Wiliams), the remaining one-quarter went to an unknown someone named David Smith.
This marks Anderson's first appearance on the show; he will be in a total of three episodes.

USA has a real curiosity on its hands. Coming to you tonight is a new show, Fairly Legal, and what's curious about it is that I'm not in love with it yet. As you may now, I'm a big fan of everything USA has out there (though White Collar distanced itself from me with that last episode), and their new shows usually have me hooked long before I even get a chance to see them. I'm willing to give this one a chance, even though the first few episodes are rather rough, but just the fact that I'm not already completely invested makes it USA's poorest showings in quite a while.
Kate Reed (Sarah Shahi - The L Word, Life) has a fairly complicated life, and she's made her goal to remove the complications from the lives of others. She's a mediator. Recently a litigator (the show description says, "top litigator, »
