Kim Fields directed 'Holiday Love' while pregnant, edited barefoot in the kitchen

21 December 2013 11:00 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Kim Fields, the actress America watched grow up on "The Facts of Life" and "Living Single," has become known in recent years for her "Holiday Love" Christmas specials. 2013 sees the premiere of the fourth installment, which Fields produced and directed during the third trimester of her recent pregnancy.

Fields tells Zap2it that she just had to jump into the undertaking of directing a two-hour movie while seven months pregnant.

"You can't think about it too much because then you're like, 'I can't do this, I need to sit down somewhere.'" she laughs. "I didn't think about it from the standpoint of 'I can't do this,' because I was in great health. When you're 44 and having a baby, you have to do a check-up practically every hour, so we knew I was safe and the baby was safe. We had a great support team."

"There's a picture of me that I absolutely love, »

Birthday shoutouts go to Sir Kenneth Branagh (above), who is 53, Bobby Flay is 49, Raven Symone is 28, Susan Dey is 61, and Gloria Loring is 67. In addition to siring Robin Thicke and singing The Facts of Life theme song, she also gave us one of the greatest duets of the 80′s, which peaked at #2 in 1986.

Happy Endings is returning to TV! Calm down … not with new episodes. Vh-1 has announced that they’ve acquired all three seasons of the late, lamented series, and will air them starting with “a marathon of every episode beginning December 31 at 8 Pm running through New Year’s Day before settling into its new home on Wednesday nights from 7-9 Pm, beginning January 8.”

Agnieszka Holland will direct NBC’s four-hour miniseries remake of Rosemary’s Baby. No word on casting yet.

Megan Mullaly and Sean Hayes will reunite on Sean Saves The World next year. Megan will play Sean’s … sister. »

Lisa Whelchel Sounds Off on Exercise and Dating at 50

24 November 2013 6:50 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Lisa Whelchel has tried every exercise in the book - and she's suffered the injuries to prove it. "I hurt my shoulder playing racquetball, I have a lower back injury from an aerobics class and I messed up my feet while training to climb Mount Whitney," she tells People.

How The Goldbergs and Other New Shows Kept Their Theme Songs

1 November 2013 4:00 AM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

When Adam F. Goldberg created his 1980s-set ABC sitcom The Goldbergs, he knew he needed to include a catchy title tune. "The '80s was the Golden Age of theme songs," he says. "From Golden Girls to The Facts of Life to Silver Spoons, people sometimes remember the theme songs more than they remember the show."

Goldberg co-wrote the theme song for his last comedy, Fox's short-lived Breaking In. This time, he decided to contact his favorite band...

Pop Culture Pet Peeve: Why I hate (most) Halloween episodes

31 October 2013 5:23 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Before you start pelting me with fun-size Snickers bars, let me just say: I love almost everything about Halloween.

I love the Dr. Who-themed jack-o-lanterns, the pranksters who scare off trick-or-treaters with Scary Nicholas Cage decorations, and the opportunity to humiliate tiny dogs by dressing them in Miley Cyrus gear. I’m even amused by the increasing unsexiness of “sexy” Halloween costumes, which suggest that even the most scantily-clad college girls are actually in on the joke. Might I suggest a  ”sexy baby” outfit, paired with Ricky’s Slutty Wallet, which sports the festive tagline “lose your dignity, not your valuables”?

HBO renews Boardwalk Empire for a fifth season

26 September 2013 12:47 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

HBO has renewed Boardwalk Empire for another season, the network announced today, completely spoiling the cliffhanger of whether or not America existed past the 1924. Indeed it did, as it turns out, and there were still gangsters, and meetings those gangsters were clearly annoyed at having to attend, and other things that so defined the Roaring Twenties. Obviously it’s too soon to say what that fifth season will be about, but as always it probably pays to look at The Facts Of Life model. In that case, we can predict that Nucky will open his own baked goods shop »

28 August 2013 11:49 AM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

So, your friends won't stop talking about Robin Thicke's racy VMAs performance with Miley Cyrus, in which he channeled Beetlejuice, and you really need to change the subject. Here are 10 things about Thicke to discuss instead.

How awesome his dad was on "Growing Pains."

And his mom, Gloria Loring, sang the theme song to "The Facts of Life."

In fact, his parents composed the theme songs for "Diff'rent Strokes" and "The Facts of Life."

He used to go simply by his last name.

His hair used to be a lot longer.

He's opened for Beyonce.

He co-wrote a song on Christina Aguilera's debut album.

He's also worked with Usher.

And Mary J. Blige.

The Cast of Good Burger Then and Now

27 August 2013 1:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Nickelodeon first launched in 1977, it seemed like little more than a child's answer to Saturday Night Live and MTV. In fact, it wasn't until Nickelodeon debuted the Canadian sketch series You Can't Do That on Television in the U.S. that this nascent network began to gain real traction amongst fans of all ages. Before too long, the basic cable channel became quite popular, especially with the launch of it's Nick At Nite line-up featuring such "classic" shows as Alf, The Facts of Life, Growing Pains and many others throughout the years. Viewership certainly proceeded to explode, turning it into one of today's favorite hubs for nostalgia of all kinds.

Nickelodeon had officially arrived in the 1990s, taking its signature brand to the big screen with Nickelodeon Movies in 1995. It wasn't until 1997, though, that this film division made its most iconic and beloved movie of all time: Good Burger. »

Nina Shaw Has Repped the Leading Players in TV and Furthered Their Careers

16 April 2013 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Nina Shaw has demonstrated a keen eye for emerging talent over the years, from Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx, signed when he was ensemble player on Fox TV’s sketch comedy “In Living Color” in the early 1990s, to Ava DuVernay, whom she helped transition from publicist to best director winner at Sundance for “Middle of Nowhere” in 2012.

But according to Shaw — who’s being honored on April 16 as 2013 Entertainment Lawyer of the Year by the Beverly Hills Bar Assn. — the secret to her success is more elemental. “I’m incredibly tenacious, but I also try so hard in my work to really listen to people and address their point of view,” says Shaw, who co-founded the firm Del, Shaw, Moonves, Tanaka and Finkelstein with Ernest Del in 1989. “In the end I always remember who I’m an advocate for.”

Recent beneficiaries of that advocacy include talkshow host Arsenio Hall, whom she »

TV on Tap: Spartacus' Final Stand, Patrick Duffy Wants a "Step By Step" Reunion and "Copper" Gets Alfre Woodard

12 April 2013 4:37 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Da Vinci's Demons spreads its wings tonight.

News

Patrick Duffy says he'd like to participate in a Step by Step reunion movie and that it would be interesting to see how the Lambert family grew up. I just hope such a series spawns a serious topical drama that desperately adds a laugh track when ratings tank, giving the Tgif generation a The Bradys of their own.

You've seen me complain that the dark side of a golden age of television is a too-full DVR that make it challenging to keep up with all the good shows (as well as the guilty pleasures and hate watching) available. It also means that shows like Southland and Switched at Birth don't quite get the attention they deserve. I'm still looking for time to get caught up on Game of Thrones, much less time to get to that third episode of Top of the Lake. »
