Few directors can be said to have changed the way films are made, but Mike Nichols, who died Wednesday at 83, was one of them. His first film, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966), ended decades of Hollywood censorship of adult content and freed the movies for mature language and subject matter ever after. His second film, "The Graduate," was the first serious mainstream movie to feature a rock soundtrack (spawning Simon and Garfunkel's hit "Mrs. Robinson") and, through its casting of Dustin Hoffman, expanded Hollywood's notion of what a leading man ought to look and sound like.
Nichols wasn't born in America (he and his family escaped from Nazi Germany when he was a child), but he was one of the best chroniclers of contemporary America -- its politics, its aspirations, its dreams, its aristocracy, and its successes and failures -- in movies. His youth in Manhattan as the son »

Dallas’ third season, which wrapped up just last week, will apparently be its last.
TNT has decided not to renew Dallas following its shocking season three finale.
“We are extremely proud of the series, which defied expectations by standing as a worthy continuation of the Ewing saga,” a TNT spokesperson told Deadline. “We want to thank everyone involved with the show, from the extraordinary cast to the impeccable production team, led by the show’s creative forces, Cynthia Cidre and Mike Robin. We especially want to thank the people of Dallas for their warm and generous hospitality during the production of the series.”
Dallas was a spinoff of the CBS 1980s evening soap opera that followed the Ewing family. Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray and Larry Hagman reprised their roles in the reboot, while Josh Henderson and Jesse Metcalfe emerged as the new series stars, playing John Ross Ewing and Christopher Ewing, »
It's time to say goodbye to the Ewings again as TNT has opted not to renew the revival drama series Dallas for a fourth season.
Dallas was cancelled by TNT late Friday evening roughly a week following a bombshell Season 3 finale that saw a main Ewing character meet their untimely demise. That character's death might as well have been a metaphor for the series ultimate fate despite the final episode leaving several loose ends, including a cliffhanger.
The writing has been on the wall for Dallas dating back to Season 2 when star Larry Hagman, one of three stars including Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray from the original Dallas that returned for the new series to join the next generation of Ewings, passed away during production. The episode that buried J.R. Ewing spiked the ratings to 3.6 million viewers, but that was still a far cry from the roughly 7 million viewers »
TNT has decided not to bring back Dallas for a fourth season. The series that was brought back for a new generation after 20 years saw its last episode air on September 22nd, ending tafter only three seasons.
When the show started back up in 2012 it saw some great ratings, reaching over 7 million per episode. Since then the ratings have been on a downward spiral with the series finale generating only 1.7 million. It didn’t help ratings when Larry Hagman, who starred on the original Dallas as well as the new version, passed away in the middle of the second season.
A spokesperson from TNT had this to say on the show’s cancellation, “TNT has decided not to renew Dallas. We are extremely proud of the series, which defied expectations by standing as a worthy continuation of the Ewing saga. We want to thank everyone involved with the show, from »

TV show description:
The original Dallas TV series ran for 357 episodes on CBS and ended in 1991 but there's still plenty of drama left at SouthFork. In 2012 we find that Jr, Bobby and Sue Ellen Ewing have returned with new secrets, schemes and betrayals. They're joined by the next generation of Ewings, who take ambition and deception to a wicked new level.
After a three-season run, Dallas has been canceled. TNT announced on Friday that the primetime soap opera, a reboot of the 1980s classic, will not be returning for a fourth season.

Season three ended on quite the cliffhanger, with a two-hour finale that not only killed off Christopher but also introduced a new character: J.R.'s long-lost daughter! Fans were shocked to find out that John Ross (Josh Henderson) had a sister, but now we'll never get to see how that storyline plays out either. Back in 2012, TNT premiered the revival of the CBS soap of the same name that ran from 1978 to 1991, bringing back some of the original stars like Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray and Larry Hagman. The new series also starred Metcalfe, Henderson, Jordana Brewster and Julie Gonzalo. Are you sad to see Dallas ride off into the sunset? »
TNT has canceled “Dallas” following its third season, the network announced Friday.
“TNT has decided not to renew ‘Dallas.’ We are extremely proud of the series, which defied expectations by standing as a worthy continuation of the Ewing saga. We want to thank everyone involved with the show, from the extraordinary cast to the impeccable production team, led by the show’s creative forces, Cynthia Cidre and Mike Robin. We especially want to thank the people of Dallas for their warm and generous hospitality during the production of the series,” said a TNT Spokesperson.
The series recently wrapped its third season by killing Jesse Metcalfe’s Christopher Ewing, a shock move that didn’t translate to a ratings bump. The revival debuted to 7 million viewers in 2012 but ratings have dwindled in subsequent years, with the Sept. 22 series finale garnering only 1.7 million viewers. The show was struck a major blow following »

This will be the first full season of Dallas without Larry Hagman's Jr Ewing. Can the cast and producers continue to draw viewers and solid ratings without their quintessential bad guy? Will the new Dallas be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season? Stay tuned to find out.
Airing on Monday nights, Dallas continues to follow the machinations of the dysfunctional and powerful Ewing clan. The cast includes Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo, Brenda Strong, Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray, Mitch Pileggi, Emma Bell, Kuno Becker, and Juan Pablo Di Pace.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

(Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you have not yet seen the two-part season finale of TNT's “Dallas” entitled “Endgame” and “Brave New World.”) “I've done some soul searching and I've finally figured out the answer,” John Ross (played by Josh Henderson) told Bobby (Patrick Duffy) after his latest move. “I am not just like my father. I'm worse.” How much worse than Larry Hagman‘s J.R. Ewing quickly became apparent, though it wasn't immediately clear how involved John Ross was in what came next. In a show that's made headlines for major character deaths, “Dallas” may have delivered yet another epic. »

Polly Bergen: 'Desperate Housewives' Emmy nominee; winner for 'The Helen Morgan Story' (photo: Felicity Huffman, Doug Savant, and Polly Bergen in 'Desperate Housewives') (See previous article: "Polly Bergen: Actress on Richard Nixon 'Enemies List'.") Polly Bergen began her lengthy — and to some extent prestigious — television career in 1950, making sporadic appearances in anthology series. She won an Emmy for Best Actress in a Single Performance – Lead or Supporting — beating Julie Andrews, Helen Hayes, Teresa Wright, and Piper Laurie — for playing troubled torch singer Helen Morgan (Show Boat) in the 1957 Playhouse 90 episode "The Helen Morgan Story," featuring veteran Sylvia Sidney as Morgan's mother. Curiously, Bergen's retelling of Helen Morgan's story was broadcast the same year that Ann Blyth starred in Michael Curtiz's Morgan biopic. Also titled The Helen Morgan Story, the film focused on the relationship between the singer and a »

The Performer | Jes Macallan
The Show | Mistresses
The Episode | “Til Death Do Us Part”
The Airdate | September 1, 2014
You can hate Josslyn Carver for (finally) succumbing to her feelings for ex-brother-in-law Harry on the Season 2 finale of Mistresses, but you’ve got to applaud her portrayer Jes Macallan for bringing humor and heartbreak, agony and (most definitely) ecstasy to a story arc that — without her deft performance — could’ve easily been dismissed as soap-opera cliché.

The latest episode of TheWrap's popular “Drinking With the Stars” video series brought “Dallas” to Los Angeles. Josh Henderson stars as John Ross Ewing in the TNT reboot of the classic primetime soap, the son of the duplicitous J.R. Ewing, made infamous by the late Larry Hagman. Henderson sat down with TheWrap's executive editor Joseph Kapsch to dish about the show's Season 3. The two enjoyed drinks at the Riviera 31 in the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles, with Henderson looking just as charming as John Ross, but refreshingly nicer and down to earth than many of his Hollywood peers.

Chicago – Mention Bill Daily’s name and you might experience puzzlement. But mention Roger Healey of “I Dream of Jeannie” or Howard Borden of “The Bob Newhart Show” and there will be instant recognition for one of TV’s favorite supporting characters. Bill Daily also grew up and started his career in Chicago.
His family moved here in the late 1930’s, and Daily attended Lane Tech High School in the city. He worked his way up the show business ladder by doing stand-up and music for clubs in the area, attended the Goodman Theatre School and worked as a floor manager for a local TV station, Wmaq. It was through those connections that he met his future co-star Bob Newhart, who was beginning his stand-up career as well.

Chicago – Next year will mark the 50th Anniversary of the seminal 1960s sitcom, “I Dream of Jeannie.” Unforgettable – for many reasons – was Barbara Eden, who portrayed a genie named Jeannie. Ms. Eden was at the “Hollywood Show” Chicago last year, and was interviewed by HollywoodChicago.com.
Eden was born Barbara Jean Morehead in Tucson, Arizona. After her family moved to the West Coast, Eden began singing, first in the church choir and eventually in night clubs. This led to acting and performance classes, including the City College of San Francisco and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. After winning the title of Miss San Francisco, Eden moved to Los Angeles, and began a series of appearances on classic TV shows including “I Love Lucy,” “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson,” “Perry Mason,” “Gunsmoke,” “Father Knows Best” and “The Andy Griffith Show.”

In 1930s Malibu, writes Robert Wagner in You Must Remember This, "You could lease a lot with 130 feet of ocean frontage for $30 a month." Soon, surfers Gary Cooper and Ronald Colman moved in, as did Barbara Stanwyck and Frank Capra (whose house Tom Hanks later lived in). Recalls Lee Majors, who moved to Malibu after his split with Farrah Fawcett in 1980: "I bought a place on the widest part of the beach, sight unseen. Larry Hagman and Burgess Meredith were neighbors and best friends until Larry blocked Burgess' view, so they quit speaking." Photos Malibu:
