You'll Be Humming This Christmas "Carol"

25 November 2013 3:39 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Despite never having a full hour devoted to a Christmas special, CBS has found (apparently) enough episodes and sketches to release a Christmas with Carol edition of The Carol Burnett Show. The sketches are heavy on Christmas scenarios and the color red while still showcasing Burnett’s brand of humor. And, of course, nothing says Christmas like a bounty of musical numbers.

As far as sketches go, the Alan Alda episode is more or less solid (if you have the patience for much longer sketches than you’d find on SNL). From a dysfunctional family Christmas to a Holiday song with Alda as Santa, Carol is sure to put you in the holiday spirit (especially with the amusing gift-giving in the opening Q&A). The other full episode in this small set includes some great song and dance numbers including Helen Reddy’s “Blue” (which has dancers dressed as Christmas »

Carol Burnett on that time her famous Tarzan yell got her out of (and in) trouble

18 November 2013 11:39 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Iconic comedian Carol Burnett appeared on CBS' "The Talk" on Monday (Nov. 18) to reminisce about her days on "The Carol Burnett Show" and to preview her upcoming guest-starring role on "Hawaii Five-0" which airs this Friday (Nov. 22).

Burnett revealed her favorite characters she portrayed on her legendary show. "I loved Mrs. Wiggins. I loved doing Eunice, I could vent," Burnett says. "And all the movie takeoffs. I was raised in the 40s and 50s so it was a throwback to me."

One of Burnett's most well-know bits is her Tarzan yell, and according to the comedian, that yell once got her out of trouble ... only to put her in trouble once more. "One time I was in New York and I needed to buy a pair of stockings, and I was running late to rehearsal," Burnett says. "I walked into a very posh store, Bergdorf Goodmans. This was back when it first opened. »

Carol Burnett: Mark Twain Prize winner says Barack Obama meeting was a surprise

23 October 2013 12:51 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Carol Burnett likely has memorable weekends ahead, but topping the one she just had will be tough.

On Sunday (Oct. 20), the comedy icon -- who starred in CBS' "The Carol Burnett Show" for 11 years (1967-78) -- became the 16th recipient of the Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at an event PBS will televise Sunday, Nov. 24. Before she left Washington, D.C., she had a stop she didn't anticipate: the White House, where she met President Barack Obama for the first time.

"It was a thrill," six-time Emmy winner Burnett tells Zap2it of visiting him in the Oval Office. "We didn't know until Friday that it was a 'go.' I had no idea the Mark Twain people were even working on it, because of the government shutdown. My assistant Angie said, 'Are you sitting down? Barring any further emergencies, you're invited to the Oval Office.'

"So was my family. »

'Major Crimes' Season 2: Doris Roberts, other TV legends gather for a murder

5 August 2013 3:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Doris Roberts is happy to get back to fighting crime, at least on television.

An assistant to Pierce Brosnan's "Remington Steele" as Mildred before playing mom to Ray Romano on "Everybody Loves Raymond," the five-time Emmy winner teams with several other familiar TV faces -- Tim Conway ("The Carol Burnett Show"), Marion Ross ("Happy Days"), Ron Glass ("Barney Miller") and Paul Dooley ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") -- in Monday's (Aug. 5) new episode of TNT's "Major Crimes."

The veteran actors collectively play former cast and crew members of a fictional 1970s show called "Prognosis: Homicide," and they now live in an apartment complex where another resident has died suspiciously. Capt. Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell) and her team seek the group's assistance in determining what happened.

Roberts' character was the hairstylist on the show-within-the-show ("an outspoken one ... what else would you expect from me?"), and the actress tells Zap2it the "Major Crimes" guest gathering is "incredible, »

'Weeds' Creator Jenji Kohan on Her New Netflix Series 'Orange Is The New Black' and Why 'Likability is Bullsh*t'

8 July 2013 9:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Netflix kicked off its big year of original programming with "House of Cards," a political drama that brought in the major movie talents of Kevin Spacey and David Fincher as a show of seriousness. But the streaming service's newest series (and by our vote its best to date) comes from a writer and producer whose first love has always been the small screen. Jenji Kohan has television in her blood -- her father Buz is an Emmy-winner who's written for everything from the Academy Awards to "The Carol Burnett Show" and her brother David co-created and produced "Will & Grace." After working as a writer and producer on "Tracey Takes On..." and "Gilmore Girls," Kohan created "Weeds," Showtime's lauded dramedy about a suburban housewife named Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) who takes up marijuana dealing to support her family after her husband passes away.

Doug Jones interview: Falling Skies, Guillermo del Toro, Hellboy 3, & mime

Interview Sarah Dobbs 8 Jul 2013 - 07:00

Sarah chats to Doug Jones about Falling Skies, acting underneath prosthetics, Guillermo del Toro, Hellboy 3, and the apocalypse...

You might not immediately recognise Doug Jones’s face. Many of his most famous roles involve heavy makeup and prosthetics that transform him into some kind of otherworldly creature: he plays Abe Sapien in the Hellboy movies, the Faun and the Pale Man in Pan’s Labyrinth, one of the Gentlemen in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Billy Butcherson in Hocus Pocus, to name just a few. He’s an incredibly physical actor, managing to convey volumes in just a movement of his head or his hands. He’s never less than brilliant, basically, and he’s always worth watching, whatever he’s in.

Right now, he’s appearing in the Steven Spielberg-produced sci-fi show Falling Skies, which meant I got to have a quick chat to him… »
