This one is for all the Cecil fans -- actually, it's for all animal fans who can't understand the appeal of hunting for fun. On Tuesday night, Jimmy Kimmel actually got emotional when weighing in on the killing of Cecil the Lion, which is not funny, and he did not treat it as such. He shamed the guy who killed Cecil in an epic sport hunting takedown. "Is it that difficult for you to get an erection that you have to kill things? If that's the case, they have a pill for that, it works great. Just stay home and swallow it and you save yourself a lifetime of »

The last time ABC tried a retro series revolving around a group of ladies -- Pam Am -- it was a ratings disappointment and was cancelled after one season. Will The Astronaut Wives Club be a different story or the same old tune? Cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.

First rule of The Astronaut Wives Club: Don’t talk about the crushing fear and loneliness you know as the spouse of one of America’s first space cowboys.

ABC’s 10-episode period drama, which premiered Thursday (8/7c), centers on the spouses of the Mercury Program astronauts and their part in the late ’50s/early ’60s scramble to put a man in space. Written by Stephanie Savage (Gossip Girl) and based on the book by Lily Koppel, the premiere focuses on the proper-to-a-fault, »
Too little too late, but ABC has finally found the perfect companion piece for "Pan Am." A bright-and-glossy dose of '60s nostalgia mixed with easily digestible proto-feminism, ABC's "Astronaut Wives Club" premieres on Thursday (June 18) night, more than three years after "Pan Am" was cancelled and I suspect they're likely to be remembered in the same way: Period dramas with high production values, a fantastic cast that ABC will look back at yearningly and unrealized creative potential obscuring otherwise solid storytelling. Is there a hypothetical TV series about the wives of the Mercury astronauts that's more than a slightly superficial, slightly choppy and slightly misfocused showcase for fine performances and some snazzy retro-style? Absolutely, but there's still some virtue to this sort of watchable, somewhat nourishing summer entertainment, even in a landscape that's overflowing with summer viewing options. Thursday's exposition-heavy premiere episode begins in 1961 with Louise Shepard (Dominique McElligott »

One giant leap for womankind! We're already over the moon for The Astronaut Wives Club, a period show about women in the early 1960s whose husbands boldly go where no men have gone before. The Stephanie Savage-produced ABC drama follows a band of unlikely friends who come together when their men are recruited by Nasa. Believe Us: There's just as much drama as there is killer fashion, and it's all thanks to headstrong characters such as tomboy Trudy Cooper (Odette Annable) and leader of the gang Louise [...] »
What makes a great summer series? Something flashy, breezy, easy to Dv-r and binge at a later date, perhaps. Beach reading, but on your TV. In fact, it really deserves a separate scale. The epitome of a great summer show may be Fox’s The O.C., which ran in the mid-aughts, and came (in part) from Stephanie Savage. Savage also has developed ABC’s new drama The Astronaut Wives Club, and with it, another well-suited summer show (though one that's still looking to ignite). The series, based on a book by Lily Koppel, details the home lives of the Mercury 7, a true-to-life group of men (including John Glenn, played here by Sam Reid) who were chosen by Nasa for their fledgling space program in the early 1960s. The families were also heavily managed for appearances, with deals made with press outlets like Life magazine to convince the American public that »

“Astronaut Wives Club” is finally ready to blast off at ABC, with the network announcing on Monday a summer premiere date for the new drama.
Originally scheduled to bow last summer and then pushed to spring for retooling and some cast changes, “Astronaut Wives Club” will air Thursdays at 8 p.m. starting June 18. That launch date will allow the network to promote the series during coverage of the NBA Finals, which will occupy Thursdays earlier in the month.
ABC had announced its summer schedule earlier this month, but there was no mention of “Astronaut Wives Club” at that time.
Based on the book by Lily Koppel, “Astronaut Wives Club” focuses on seven women who were key players behind some of the biggest events in American history. As America’s astronauts were launched on death-defying missions, the lives of their young wives were transformed, seemingly overnight, from military spouses to American royalty. »
