'Grey's Anatomy': Meredith Ponders Her Marriage in First Season 11 Teaser

4 September 2014 6:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The first footage for Grey's Anatomy's 11th season has arrived, and it sets up what showrunner Shonda Rhimes has called a "Meredith-centric season." In the new clip, Mer (Ellen Pompeo) tells hubby Derek (Patrick Dempsey) that she's not going to Washington and instead opting to remain in Seattle in what looks like a very tense confrontation. Meanwhile, April (Sarah Drew) tells Jackson (Jesse Williams) that it seems like Derek is "dying inside" as Mer, now leaning on Alex (Justin Chambers) after Cristina's (Sandra Oh) departure, ponders whether her marriage can survive what seems like a professional impasse with Derek. "It's really a Meredith-centric season. There's a

Patricia Heaton (TV’s The Middle) and Sarah Drew (TV’s Grey’s Anatomy) just want to have some fun in comedy movie Moms’ Night Out.

‘Everwood’ Reunion: Cast and Creator Remember Show’s Cancellation, Original Pitch

10 June 2014 4:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Atx Television Festival played host to an “Everwood” reunion on June 7, gathering creator Greg Berlanti, producer Jordan Levin, writer-producers David Hudgins and Rina Mimoun, composer Blake Neely and cast members Gregory Smith, Stephanie Niznik, Tom Amandes, Vivien Cardone, Sarah Drew, Debra Mooney, John Beasley and Brenda Strong for a nostalgic Q&A. Fellow stars Emily VanCamp, Chris Pratt and Treat Williams were unable to make the panel, hosted at Austin’s State Theater, but VanCamp and Williams recorded video messages, while Pratt called in during the panel via FaceTime to thank fans for their support of the WB drama.

Although “Everwood” went off the air in 2006, the show was clearly still fresh in the minds of the cast and the assembled fans, and many tears were shed both on stage and in the audience as the actors recalled the four years they spent in Utah filming the series.

Ebiri: Moms’ Night Out Reminds Mothers to Just Stick to Their God-Given Jobs and Stay at Home

10 May 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

A faith-friendly version of a girls-behaving-badly comedy, Moms’ Night Out is a weird mix of tired jokes, topicality, and crippling anxiety. If the concept of a moms’ night out is premised on the notion that mothers can never get away for fear their families will collapse in their absence, then this movie cruelly confirms that fear. No, the fathers really don’t have any idea what they’re doing. No, nobody out there besides you has any concern for the well-being and safety of your child. And besides, yes, you really are too incompetent to go out to a simple dinner with your friends. Just stick to what God put you on Earth to do and raise your kids.Okay, it’s not quite as mean-spirited and indignant as that. But judge the evidence for yourself. Our hero here is Allyson (Sarah Drew), a wannabe mommy blogger who introduces herself to us by presenting, »

Film Review: Chaotic Comedy ‘Moms’ Night Out’ Has Wholesome Content, Toxic Attitude

9 May 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – Liberty is a concept expressed only in irony with “Moms’ Night Out,” a female-driven minivan comedy that instructs ultimately to listen to thy husband for it is Biblical, even if thy husband is a child himself. Like sad Mitt Romney and his chocolate milk, this PG-romp is a brief walk on the wild side from the rules that await at the end of the night.

Rating: 1.5/5.0

Unfortunately, while taking out the substance abuse of a Judd Apatow or Todd Phillips arc, this shiny film exorcises the substance that comes with a freer perspective of the world. “Moms’ Night Out” diverges into a film that cannot offer its viewers freedom from the the evil spirits that make a world so toxic, as the film itself is so narrow-minded.

The intentions of “Moms’ Night Out” start out innocent enough, with a zippy beginning that provides false promise for focused filmmaking. Its »

Grey's Anatomy: Season 11 for Shonda Rhimes Drama

9 May 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

It looks like the doors of Seattle Grace will be staying open for awhile. ABC has renewed Grey's Anatomy for an 11th season.

Grey's Anatomy follows the personal and professional lives of the staff at the fictional Seattle Grace Hospital in Washington. This season, the ensemble cast includes Ellen Pompeo, Sandra Oh, Justin Chambers, Chandra Wilson, James Pickens Jr., Patrick Dempsey, Sara Ramirez, Kevin McKidd, Jessica Capshaw, Sarah Drew, Jesse Williams, Camilla Luddington, Gaius Charles, Jerrika Hinton, and Tessa Ferrer.

Though the show's ratings are down year-to-year (by about 13% in the demo), Grey's is the network's third-highest rated scripted series. It currently averages a 2.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 8.54 million total viewers.

If the ratings hold up, Grey's could certainly see a 12th year. Ramirez, Pickens Jr., Wilson, and Chambers have all renewed their contracts for two more »

Sean Astin Talks Mom’S Night Out, Being in a Good, Clean Comedy, Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain, Being Game for a Goonies Sequel, and More

8 May 2014 2:54 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Perfect for Mother’s Day, the family comedy Mom’s Night Out tells the story of Allyson (Sarah Drew), a wife and mother who loves her family, but also longs for a peaceful, grown-up evening out with her friends.  Leaving her husband (Sean Astin) to watch the kids for the evening suddenly turns into chaos, in a true celebration of the beautiful mess known as parenting. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Sean Astin talked about being a part of a good, clean comedy that families can see together, why movies with a component of faith are so appealing to audiences, that he loves physical comedy and hopes he gets to do more, and how such a chaotic story had a surprisingly un-chaotic set.  He also talked about what attracted him to the upcoming FX series The Strain, adapted from Guillermo del Toro’s novel and premiering this summer, »

Exclusive Video Interview With Patricia Heaton, Sean Astin And Sarah Drew On Moms’ Night Out

7 May 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Movies about mothers, whether they are single or married, have been coming out in droves lately. It was only a few months ago that we saw Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club and now, just in time for Mother’s Day, we have the comedy Moms’ Night Out.

The film follows Allyson (Sarah Drew), who has just endured another energy draining week of caring for her children while her husband Sean (Sean Astin) is out of town yet again. In desperate need of a break, Allyson invites her two best friends, Izzy (Andrea Logan White) and the pastor’s wife Sondra (Patricia Heaton), to spend an evening with her where they can relax and let their hair down. What begins as a fun night out soon turns into a chaotic evening which involves a boatload of misunderstandings that will have moms and dads chasing after each other as they »

Moms' Night Out is a PG-rated Hangover That Argues Moms Shouldn't Have Nights Out

6 May 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Outrageously enough, the moral of Moms' Night Out seems to be that moms should never get a night out. This Mother's Day weekend release is pretty much a PG-rated The Hangover, but with an ill-fitting God angle that slowly wedges its way into the movie — an agenda that, in retrospect, explains the conspicuous lack of booze, drugs, and sex.

With three kids and a husband on the road, stay-at-home mom Allyson (Sarah Drew) is suffering from what can rightly be categorized as a Glamorous Female Crisis. (This occurs whenever we're told a character is teetering on the edge of sanity, yet we only ever see her with salon-coiffed hair, a toned bod, and not a circle to darken her under-eye.) So she lays it down for spouse Sean, as in "Sean Astin," who here is riding o »
