'Friends with Better Lives' could use better ratings

15 April 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Friends with Better Lives is the latest sitcom vying for a semi-permanent slot in the CBS Monday night block now that How I Met Your Mother has departed, but so far, it’s not impressing in the ratings.

The second episode last night of the new show starring James Van Der Beek and Brooklyn Decker was down 31 percent from its premiere preview two weeks ago. Meanwhile, CBS’ fellow freshman Mom finished up its first season run with an equally modest number. The network also tried shifting 2 Broke Girls to 8 p.m. to try kick starting the night in the old Himym slot, »

James Van Der Beek says Michelle Williams is way beyond her years

13 April 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

New York, April 13: Michelle Williams' 'Dawson's Creek' co-star James Van Der Beek has praised the Hollywood beauty, saying that she was always a deep thinker and way beyond her years.

The 37-year-old actor told the New York Post that the stunning actress was always incredibly smart.

Beek said that he always joked that he and the duo's co-stars of the show, including Katie Holmes and Joshua Jackson, would be asking her for a job because he thought she would produce and write.

The blonde beauty was the youngest in the cast, age-wise, and the oldest in every other way, he added. (Ani) »

James Van Der Beek on Michelle Williams: She Was Always a "Deep Thinker, Way Beyond Her Years"

12 April 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

James Van Der Beek has a new TV show, but if he was out of a job, chances are he would have reached out to Dawson's Creek costar Michelle Williams. "Michelle was always incredibly smart," he told the New York Post Saturday, April 12. "I always joked that we'd all be asking Michelle for a job. I thought she would produce, she would write." Indeed, Williams, 33, went on from Dawson's Creek to become the most successful among the show's four central stars, which included Katie Holmes and [...] »

InsideTV Podcast: Blindsided Sarah from 'Survivor' blasts Kass

3 April 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Things got personal last night on Survivor: Cagayan between Sarah and Kass. The alliance-mates could not agree on whom to target on the other tribe, so Kass decided to target someone else — Sarah! The move killed not only Sarah’s chances in the game (as she was eliminated), but also effectively ended Kass’ chances as well seeing as how her former tribemates that she turned on will likely never vote for her to win the million dollars now. So what was the strategic reason for the flipping? Or did Kass — who at one point told us “I can’t even look at her. »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Labor Day

2 April 2014 3:37 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: April 29, 2014

Price: DVD $29.99, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.99

Studio: Paramount Home Entertainment

Labor Day is a bit of romance and plenty of drama.

Kate Winslet (Carnage) stars as single mother Adele, who with her son Henry (Gatlin Griffith, The New Daughter) offers a ride to a wounded man, Frank (Josh Brolin, Gangster Squad), only to find out that he’s an escaped conflict. As police search the town, Adele and Henry learn more about Frank, as their options become increasingly limited.

Winslet was nominated for a best actress Golden Globe for her performance in the PG-13 movie, which also stars Tobey Maguire (The Great Gatsby), James Van Der Beek (The Rules of Attraction) and J.K. Simmons (Jobs). Jason Reitman (Young Adult) wrote and directed Labor Day based on the novel by Joyce Maynard.

Despite getting a wide release in theaters, the film grossed only $13 million, probably on the poor reviews from critics, »

James Van Der Beek on Why He Feels the Need to Apologize to Adrian Grenier...and Justin Timberlake's Mom!

31 March 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Beek is back! James Van Der Beek returns to network television on CBS tonight, with the new series Friends With Better Lives—the show CBS is hoping will be a direct match for fans of How I Met Your Mother (which is bowing out tonight). Fwbl has some funny moments, thanks to a stellar cast including James, Brookyln Decker and Majandra Delfino (Roswell lives!), and a decidedly Friends-ish feel, focusing on a group of friends (some coupled, some not) who, in this case, all think everyone else has it better. James just stopped by E! Online to chat about his new show, and naturally, we had to ask about not only his promising new show, but also the recent headlines he's made revealing that he once »

'Friends With Better Lives': James Van Der Beek and Kevin Connolly, 'Friends' by any other name

31 March 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Right after one group of friends signs off, new friends will be introduced ... by a former writer-producer of "Friends," no less.

Immediately following the series finale of CBS' "How I Met Your Mother" Monday (Mar. 31), the network will debut the sitcom "Friends With Better Lives." The premise of longtime acquaintances in amusing situations -- mainly revolving around their differing relationship levels -- may seem familiar, but it's served up by a fresh ensemble cast merging established TV faces and relative newcomers.

Will (played by "Dawson's Creek" alum James Van Der Beek) is struggling to adjust after his recent divorce; Jules (actress-model Brooklyn Decker) is newly engaged to visibly amorous Lowell (Rick Donald); Kate (Zoe Lister-Jones, "Whitney") is a career-driven serial dater; and the married Bobby (Kevin Connolly, "Entourage") and Andi (Majandra Delfino, "Roswell") observe their friends' allegedly better lives somewhat enviously.

Gratified that sitcom-directing master James Burrows ("The Millers," "Will & Grace") guided the premiere, »

James Van Der Beek on Lessons From 'Apartment 23,' Stand-Up and Dawson Comparisons

31 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

James Van Der Beek has gone from playing a hopeless romantic on Dawson's Creek to reinventing himself as a comedic actor by mocking his early days on The WB network in ABC's Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23. Now the Cruel Intentions and Varsity Blues alum will step into the role of Will Stokes, a sad sack who must reinvent himself after his marriage crumbles on CBS' freshman comedy Friends With Better Lives. From Friends alum Dana Klein, the ensemble comedy revolves around a group of 30-something friends who each think the other has it better. The comedy marks

“How I Met Your Mother” Says Farewell, “Wonderland” Gets the Axe and “Enlisted” Deserved Better

News

Chelsea Handler is planning on ending her talk show Chelsea Lately, according to The Hollywood Reporter. I’ll admit, I wouldn’t mind if E! were thinking of turning Hello Ross into Chelsea‘s replacement, but Variety says the channel is developing a panel show that will probably replace it.

Sharp-eyed Good Wife viewers already suspected this (I’m told his name appeared with the regular cast instead of the guest-cast), not it’s official. Matthew Goode has been promoted to series regular for the rest of the season.

Syfy’s outbreak drama Helix got a second season renewal.

Vulture looks back at the named credits on TV show, where a cast member appears in the opening credits with their character’s name (like how the Dynasty credits ended with “And Joan Collins as Alexis). The way the credits have shrunk, those credits are mostly a memory by now. »

James Van Der Beek on ‘Friends With Better Lives’ Sex Jokes, Character's Ex-Wife Stalking: ‘He's Just Totally Inept’

31 March 2014 12:52 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“Dawson's Creek” icon James Van Der Beek returns to the small screen in the CBS sitcom “Friends With Better Lives,” which premieres Monday at 9 p.m., playing a very different character than he portrayed on his last series, “Don't Trust the B—- in Apartment 23.” For one thing, his new character isn't also named James Van Der Beek. For another, the character, Will Stokes, is newly single and finds himself pining for his ex-wife to a degree that skips right past lovelorn and dives head-first into pathetic.

Brooklyn Decker: 'Friends With Better Lives' isn't trying to be another 'How I Met Your Mother'

30 March 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

If Brooklyn Decker was seeking a model role as an actress, "Friends With Better Lives" has come along at the right time.

The "star" of Sports Illustrated's 2010 swimsuit-issue cover has done the occasional screen role in movies ("Battleship," "Just Go With It") and television ("New Girl," "Royal Pains"), but she commits fully as an ensemble-cast member of the CBS sitcom "Friends With Better Lives," premiering Monday (March 31).

There's little question Decker understands her new character well, since the newly engaged Jules is an ex-model and aspiring actress. "When we were shooting the pilot, it was probably the most nervous I've ever been going into a job," the engagingly friendly performer tells Zap2it. 'I was shaking and sweating, and my teeth were chattering.

"The theater I had done, it was in North Carolina doing 'Winnie the Pooh.' It wasn't anything on such a massive scale as filming a multi-camera »

29 March 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

James Van Der Beek had plenty of fan girls during his Dawson’s Creek days. But the way he tells it, screaming teens were the least of his worries back then.

When visiting Late Night to promote his new show, Friends with Better Lives, on Thursday, Van Der Beek told Seth Meyers that his craziest stalker was a man who made him mix-tapes featuring songs from films and TV shows that the actor appeared in. Seriously. Check out his funny-scary recollection here:

James Van Der Beek remembers 'Dawson's Creek' stalkers, reunites with Mary Beth Peil

28 March 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

James Van Der Beek stopped by "Late Night with Seth Meyers" Thursday (March 27) to talk about his new show "Friends with Better Lives." All anyone really wanted to hear about was "Dawson's Creek," though. Luckily, he was more than happy to oblige.

One thing about the "Dawson's Creek" experience that stands out to Van Der Beek is the stalkers he gained through being a teen heartthrob. Sure, there was no end of teen girls who squealed with delight whenever they saw him, but they weren't the only ones enamored with Dawson.

"My favorite was this older guy, who would make me mix tapes which were comprised of songs from shows I had actually been in," Van Der Beek says. "He would come to Wilmington, where we shot 'Dawson's Creek', every year on my birthday to try and give me a birthday card. So every year on my birthday »
