TV show dates: December 17, 2012 -- March 28, 2013
Series status: Cancelled
TV show description:
This comedy series follows the Gilchrists, a typical American family -- sort of. They have everyday issues, like a grown kid who's forced to move back home and teenagers who are smarter than their teachers. They're loving, fun and a little crazy.
They're just like everyone else except they live in a very special house, the White House. Whether it's entertaining foreign dignitaries, holding secret cabinet meetings or putting out fires -- figuratively and sometimes literally -- there's never a dull moment in the Gilchrist White House.
President Dale Gilchrist (Bill Pullman) is »
There's just one term season for 1600 Penn. NBC has cancelled the Thursday night sitcom after one season and 13 episodes.
1600 Penn follows the dysfunctional Gilchrist family as they adapt to life in the White House. When the public voted Standrich Gilchrist (Bill Pullman) into office, they likely had no idea that they were getting his goofy son "Skip" (Josh Gad) as part of the deal. The show also features Jenna Elfman, Martha MacIsaac, Andre Holland, Amara Miller, and Benjamin Stockham.
The sitcom previewed on December 17th to a 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.88 million viewers. For NBC, those are very good ratings.
Unfortunately, 1600 Penn couldn't hold onto those numbers. The second episode drew a 1.6 rating and 3.86 million on January 10th. A week later, the ratings fell to a 1.2 in the demo and »

The thriller TV show that debuted on FX got kudos from critics for being smart, engrossing and intense. Close’s lawyer Patty Hawes and Byrne’s protegee Ellen Parsons battled for three seasons on FX then moved to DirecTV for its last two runs.
In the fifth and final season, Patty and Ellen fight it out in court as opposing lawyers in a wrongful death case against a charismatic international cyber hacker (Ryan Phillippe, The Lincoln Lawyer) and a custody battle pitting Patty against her own son.
Guest stars in the fifth season include Jenna Elfman (Friends With Benefits), Michael Gaston (TV’s Last Resort), Janet McTeer (The Woman in Black), Judd Hirsch (Tower Heist) and John Hannah (The Words).
The actor’s routine of coming in to read has meant something different to Barbara Bain for the last 20 years. In 1993, Bain, a film and television actor famous for her portrayal of Cinnamon Carter on the series “Mission: Impossible,” founded BookPALS (Performing Artists for Literacy in Schools) to promote children’s literacy through the SAG Foundation. Bain said pairing actors with children hungry for storytelling was a perfect match. “We read and we’re also under-employed, so we have time and like an audience, so what could be better?” she said. “It all just fit together.” Originally located only in Los Angeles, the organization now has five chapters across the country, of which New York and L.A. are the largest, with 1,700 BookPALS serving 45,000 children. The other three branches, in Arizona, San Francisco, and Florida, have a combined 600 BookPALS serving 16,000 children, from preschoolers to fifth graders, in schools, hospitals, and social service agencies every month. »
Experience the suspenseful conclusion of TV's hit legal thriller when Damages: The Final Season debuts on DVD July 16th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Back as the villainous Patty Hewes is three-time Emmy and Golden Globe winner Glenn Close, with Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids, The Internship) returning as Patty's ambitious former protégé, Ellen Parsons. Manipulation and lies come to a head in the show's combustion-filled conclusion, as Patty and Ellen, on opposing sides, ruthlessly battle it out in the courtroom. With its characteristic dangerous twists and turns, this final season is not to be missed. Damages, which aired on DirecTV to excellent reviews, also stars Ryan Phillippe (The Lincoln Lawyer, Flags of Our Fathers), and guest stars Jenna Elfman (TV's Dharma & Greg, Friends with Benefits), Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs), Judd Hirsch (TV's Numb3rs) and John Hannah (The Mummy).
Available as a three-disc set, Damages: The Final Season will include all 10 episodes, »

There’s a lot of talk these days about the increased visibility of queer folk on TV. And while this is certainly true, there is one woman who repped lady love on mainstream TV way back when, back before any state had marriage equality, before Glee was even a glimmer in Ryan Murphy’s eye, even before Ilene Chaiken.
And that woman is Roseanne, y’all.
Gayer shows and characters may have come our way since Roseanne went off the air in 1997, but no one has covered both feminism and queerness in such blue collar realness since, and I worry no one else ever will. Lest we ever forget its greatness, here are my Top 5 Lesbian Moments of Roseanne

While we all know that Roseanne jumped the shark once they won the lottery in the last season, »
On the surface, this idea seems, well, sorta nuts. Despite five recent-ish seasons of Ghost Whisperer, Hewitt hasn’t been particularly relevant since her Party of Five days, and her brief early-aughts singing career was unmemorable at best. (Though you’ve got to admit, “BareNaked” is still pretty catchy.)
Dig a little deeper, though, and suddenly the rumor starts making a weird kind of sense. Hewitt’s certainly as famous as, say, Paula Abdul »

Lee Garlington has been steadily working in Hollywood since the '80s. "I haven't had to say, 'Would you like fries or Caesar salad with that?' since 1984," she said. But, the actress added, she hasn't peaked yet.
"I plan to peak in my 70s," Garlington told The Huffington Post in a phone interview. "I have another decade to go before I'm going to really hit my stride. I'm going to be Doris Roberts, knocking 'em dead on my big hit show."
A serial guest star and regular film supporting player, Garlington is perhaps best known for having one the biggest show business "tragedies": She was the original female star in the "Seinfeld" pilot. Garlington's regular TV appearances and supporting roles in films like "Field of Dreams" and "Cobra" made her a perfect subject for HuffPost's "Isn't That ... ?," a new feature highlighting those character actors you recognize from a variety of projects, »

At the Television Critics Association winter press tour, Trish Bendix got a hot tip that Marigold Gilchrist, one of the teenage characters in NBC's midseason comedy 1600 Penn, was going to come out as a lesbian. And she did. At the end of the pilot episode, after we'd been introduced to all of the other kids in the quirky First Family — the awkward but lovable Skip, the overachieving but accidentally pregnant Becca, the middle school prodigy Xander — Marigold revealed her sexuality without any fanfare. When her stepmom asked the name of the boy she had a crush on, Becca simply said, "Jessica."
1600 Penn has aired 13 episodes so far, and most of them have focused on Skip and Becca's highjinks, but during episode five, "Frosting Nixon," we did get to meet the object of Marigold's affection. Jessica is the queen bee of Xander and Marigold's prep school, »

On the season finale of "1600 Penn," due to a wedding license mix-up, it turns out President Gilchrist (Bill Pullman) and Emily (Jenna Elfman) aren't married. You know what that means in sitcom land -- quickie White House wedding!
But it can't be any old wedding. Skip (Josh Gad) decides to flex the golden pipes on Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time," which it turns out is Becca's (Martha MacIsaac) birthing song, so it sends her into labor.
The first family rushes to the hospital -- after first tracking down D.B. (Robbie Amell) at the mall -- and Becca and her baby daddy welcome baby boy. Except D.B. is not the baby daddy. It's Marshall (Andre Holland), the White House Press Secretary.
Dun dun dun! Unfortunately, fans of the show probably won't get to see how that turns out. Its ratings are among the lowest for NBC comedies -- »
Bright-eyed, fresh-faced and always radiant, Jenna Elfman is one blond beauty who never seems to age. It should come to no surprise then, that when it comes to her skin care, this is one area the comedic actress takes pretty seriously. We recently learned that the 1600 Penn star relies on a magical little potion to keep fine lines and pesky wrinkles at bay: Airelle Age Defying Facial Serum with Hyaluronic Acid. This ultra-hydrating product is packed with antioxidants, botanticals and vitamins specifically designed to firm, tighten and smooth skin while encouraging new cell growth and prevent premature aging. Case in point, she's such a fan of the line that she uploaded a »
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Justin on the big screen! Do you think he’s got what it takes to carry a musical?
Justin Timberlake may be all about his “Suit & Tie” these days, but could his new image lead to a high-profile movie role? Justin, 32, is being considered to play Daddy Warbucks in the upcoming big-screen remake of Annie, Page Six is reporting, a project that already has some huge Hollywood hitters attached.
Not only is Annie being produced by Will Smith and Jay-z — one of Justin’s good buddies, considering they’re about to go on tour together — but it’s also starring Quvenzhané Wallis, who was just nominated for an Academy Award! Sadly, the nine-year-old Beasts of the Southern Wild Star didn’t win Best Actress, but she still managed to steal the show.
A rep for Sony tells Page Six that the rumors are “not true, »

Acting is a craft. Even the greatest of thespians must work long and hard to achieve the right emotions to believably play a part. So just think how tough it must be for Josh Gad of "1600 Penn."
We're kidding, of course. Gad is great. But even he might need some pointers now and then. That's when it's good to have someone like Andre Holland around for extra help. With him, a believable adult baby at a funeral might even be possible. Maybe.
What sorts of scenes are the actors really preparing for?
A date is Skip's goal in the next "1600 Penn" episode, "Game Theory." In this episode, Skip announces that he is going on a big date with Stacey (guest star Susan Park. Emily (Jenna Elfman) is rather concerned about the date and takes it upon herself to make sure the affair goes off without any problems. Of course, this »
Jenna Elfman explained that she can ruin almost any romantic moment with her husband. The actress was on "Conan," where she said she brings up the strangest and most off-putting topics just before they're about to have sex. What's more sensual than talking about getting the kids vaccinated?
One story, though, had Conan O'Brien back Elfman. She said that her husband is incredibly romantic and is constantly trying to think of romantic things to do. One year, he decided it would be sweet for Elfman to wake up "in the clouds." So he filled the room with dry ice.
But to someone coming out of a sleep state, there's only one thing that's going to make them think of. "I thought the house was on fire!" Elfman exclaimed.
She may well be the worst when it comes to romance, but some ideas are just destined to fail.
