30 Years Later, ‘CHiPs’ Cast Reunites

31 October 2014 5:16 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Special correspondent Sheryl Underwood interviews the cast of the beloved cop show.

It’s been more than 30 years since Ponch and Jon rode off into the sunset on the hit buddy cop show CHiPs. The cast sat down together for the first time with special correspondent Sheryl Underwood to talk on-set drama and what they've been up to since turning in their badges.

Larry Wilcox and Erik Estrada played California Highway Patrol partners Jon Baker and "Ponch" Poncherello on the show and while rumors of cast conflicts persisted when they were filming, the two downplayed any feud.

"As far as I'm concerned, I always felt like, you know, we're different personalities," Wilcox told Underwood. "That's okay."

"Yeah, we French kissed and made up," Estrada joked.

News: This 'Roseanne' Reunion Included a Great George Clooney Story!

Estrada left the show in 1981 and was replaced by a familiar face to today’s reality fans, though in those »

Catching Up With Meredith Baxter

8 July 2014 11:12 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Meredith Baxter has been a TV star since 1972 when she starred in a CBS series called Bridget Loves Birney. She went on to become beloved sitcom Mom Elyse Keaton in the long running Family Ties and then followed that by starring in (and sometimes producing) a string of successful TV movies. (My Breast, A Woman Scorned: The Betty Broderick Story and many more.)

Baxter’s successful career belied a sometimes turbulent personal life. She battled through breast cancer, domestic violence and alcoholism and even navigated a late-in-life realization that she was a lesbian.

We caught up with the actress to discuss her life today as well as her highly anticipated new series, MTV’s Finding Carter, which premieres tonight at 10/9c

TV Review: ‘Finding Carter’

6 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

What sounds like a highly provocative concept quickly devolves into a standard-issue, ABC Family-style soap in “Finding Carter,” a series whose protagonist is the right age for MTV, yet which feels fuzzily off-brand. Kathryn Prescott stars as a 16-year-old girl who discovers she was abducted at age 3 and is reunited with a family she doesn’t know, while missing the woman who happily raised her. Granted, MTV ought to be able to branch out within its younger demo, but this is still such a me-too idea it’s pretty hard to get spirited away by it.

Although one can appreciate the desire to plunge right into the story (created by Emily Silver, who shares writing credit with showrunner Terri Minsky), it might help if viewers had a little longer to get to know Prescott’s Carter in her initial environs, before a chance arrest lands her in the system and leads to her unwelcome, »
