"America in Primetime" covers television tropes like The Independent Woman

1 November 2011 10:01 AM, PDT | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

This past Sunday, PBS aired its first segment of a four-part series called America in Primetime, which is all about television — its history, its characters, its growth.

The first segment was "The Independent Woman," which was about the pressures that real women have faced, which translates into what female characters face. The entire episode is available to watch on the PBS website, so you can still watch it in its entirety. Interviewees include Julianna Margulies, Archie Panjabi, Elisabeth Moss, Patricia Heaton, Roseanne Barr, Diablo Cody, Mary Tyler Moore and many, many more. The discussions range from broader ideas about how women's roles have changed in the home and at work from the 1950s through present day, and wow, how times have changed. When you look back at how Lucy Ricardo was spanked by Ricky if she disobeyed him by trying to participate in show business and then compare it to »

Chord Overstreet Returning to 'Glee' for Several Episodes

24 October 2011 7:28 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Chord Overstreet will return to "Glee" for a multi-episode arc, Fox announced Monday. The announcement followed the decision -- which evoked the wrath of many "Glee" fans -- not to bring him back to the show this season after he debuted in the second season. Also read: From 'Glee' Student to Teacher: Chord Overstreet Guests on Patricia Heaton's 'The Middle' Overstreet's Sam Evans will be back at McKinley High beginning in December. "We love Chord and have always said that we wanted him back," said Ryan Murphy, executive producer and co-creator of "Glee." »

'Last Man Standing,' 'New Girl' and the great comedy renaissance of 2011-12

12 October 2011 10:14 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

ABC's new series "Last Man Standing" premiered to strong ratings Tuesday night (Oct. 11), with 13.2 million people tuning into Tim Allen's return to sitcomdom.

That the former star of a hit comedy ("Home Improvement," in this case) would draw a big audience in his return is maybe not a surprise. Except that when you look at the track record of some of Allen's contemporaries in recent years, it sort of is.

Consider: "Back to You" and "Hank," both of which starred multiple Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer (the former also featured fellow Emmy winner Patricia Heaton), couldn't make it past their first seasons. Ditto for Matthew Perry ("Mr. Sunshine"), Paul Reiser ("The Paul Reiser Show") and Jenna Elfman ("Accidentally on Purpose"), all of whom starred in hit shows in the 1990s and early 2000s and had one-and-done shows in the past couple of seasons.

This year, though? Allen seems to have »

The Middle 3.01 & 3.02 "Forced Family Fun" Recap

22 September 2011 9:55 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The Heck family is back for a third season of The Middle, but before the kids head back to school they need some forced family fun. The two-part season premiere flipped back and forth between the current timeline of the Heck family camping trip, and a flashback of Frankie and Mike's honeymoon where we learn why Frankie hates camping. It's in the flashback that we see Patricia Heaton reunite with her former TV husband, Ray Romano. He's the reason she hates camping.

The episode opens as everyone heads out of the house on the first day of school, and they're so worried that they're going to miss each other that they promise to call throughout the day and depart with a family hug. The end of the episode shows us how they got to this loving state. In a brief recap of their summer, we learn that Frankie and Mike rarely saw the kids. »

The Middle Season Premiere: Not Everybody Loves Raymond

21 September 2011 2:09 PM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Turns out, not everybody loves Raymond. Or at least The Middle's Frankie Heck (Patricia Heaton) doesn't.

Fall Preview: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows

And viewers will learn why on the one-hour season premiere of the ABC comedy, which reunites Heaton with her Everybody Loves Raymond husband Ray Romano.

"We hadn't gone to him before," co-creator and executive producer DeAnn Heline tells TVGuide.com. "As a new show, you want to give it time to develop. Plus he was busy with his show — he's a busy guy. But, now, all the stars aligned."

Romano appears via flashbacks that are brought on by a Heck Family camping trip. As Frankie and Mike (Neil Flynn) take the kids into the woods, the couple reflects on the last time they went camping — on their honeymoon.

"Ray plays a friend of Mike's who happens to stumble upon them during their honeymoon and causes problems, »

'The Middle': Patricia Heaton on her 'Raymond' reunion, Chord Overstreet and Season 3

20 September 2011 5:51 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The headline guest star on "The Middle" this fall is Ray Romano, who's reuniting with his "Everybody Loves Raymond" co-star Patricia Heaton. But he's far from the only one.

Romano appears in Wednesday's (Sept. 21) hour-long season premiere, which flashes back to Frankie (Heaton) and Mike's (Neil Flynn) honeymoon. Romano plays Nicky, a friend of Mike's who "crashes the party," as Heaton puts it.

"It's a very different format that we're working in on 'The Middle,'" Heaton tells Zap2it about working opposite her former TV husband again. "We have no audience like we did on 'Raymond,' and we have no rehearsal time like we did on 'Raymond.' And Ray looks a hundred years older. I don't know what he was doing on [his TNT series] 'Men of a Certain Age,' but clearly he was burning the candle at both ends. Or maybe he's just not going to »

Isabella Vosmikova/Fox Zooey Deschanel in “New Girl

You loved her in “(500) Days of Summer,” you maybe like her in her quirky pop band She & Him, but will you want to watch Zooey Deschanel in the sitcom “New Girl’?

In the show, Deschanel plays a teacher who is forced by circumstances to move in with three guys, kinda in a “Four’s Company” kind of way. So far, the critics say that Deschanel is mostly adorable in “New Girl,” though »

Patricia Heaton Talks Teaming Up With Ray Romano For 'The Middle'

15 September 2011 1:35 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Ray Romano made a splash back in May when he attempted to win over the Dunder Mifflin committee seeking a new manager on "The Office," and on Wednesday, he'll be crashing into "The Middle."

On the upcoming season premiere of the ABC comedy, Raymond teams up once again with his "Everybody Loves Raymond" co-star, Patricia Heaton, playing a different kind of character - Nicky, described as a "sad-sack."

"Think Eeyore from 'Winnie the Pooh,'" Patricia told Access Hollywood of his character's description. "Did that explain it?"

Raymond enters the episode after Mike (Neil Flynn) takes wife Frankie ...

Stars Rocked By Los Angeles Earthquake

1 September 2011 6:36 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Danny DeVito and Patricia Heaton were among the Hollywood stars rocked when an earthquake hit Los Angeles on Thursday afternoon.

A 4.2-magnitude quake, centred 24 miles (38.6 kilometres) northwest of downtown L.A., shook the city and several aftershocks followed.

The former Everybody Loves Raymond star Heaton quickly took to her Twitter.com page, asking fans, "Was there an earthquake in La? My desk just shook like crazy", before adding: "Whoohoo! Earthquake La! Life is precarious, people - carpe diem!"

Pauley Perrette was on the set of her hit series NCIS at the time of the tremors, and she updated her followers on the situation at the TV studios.

In a series of posts, she writes, "4.2 magnitude centered right here by the #NCIS stage. All is well, lots of equipment shook. Another after shock. Keeps going. It's right underneath us at #NCIS but all's well."

DeVito took the opportunity to joke, "Earthquake? Or a small dog fart? 4.2 nice adjustment", while singer Sam Sparro also felt the quake: "That was an earthquake? I thought people were doing it upstairs." »

Glee! The Middle Season 3 Strikes a Chord

25 August 2011 4:26 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Glee’s Chord Overstreet has fast-tracked through graduation as he moves from McKinley High as a student to Orson Elementary as a teacher for a guest spot on Season 3 of ABC’s family comedy, The Middle.

Overstreet will be appearing on the September 28th episode of The Middle as Ralph Wilkerson, a new fourth grade teacher that has Brick (Atticus Shaffer) in his class. This in itself might not be a bad thing, but EW.com reveals that Wilkerson’s “innovative and involved teaching methods run counter to the more relaxed parenting style used by the boy’s parents.”

Chord Overstreet Not Coming Back to Glee

I guess it depends on how fired up Frankie (Patricia Heaton) and Mike (Neil Flynn) get over Ralph‘s unique style of teaching, but Overstreet might get to spin this into a recurring role, which would be a good thing since Sam is leaving »
