Los Angeles — Alan Sues, who brought his flamboyant and over-the-top comic persona to the hit television show "Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In" in the 1960s and 1970s, has died, a close friend said Sunday night.
Sues died of cardiac arrest on Thursday at his home in West Hollywood, Michael Gregg Michaud, a friend since 1975, told The Associated Press.
"He was sitting in a recliner watching TV with his dachshund Doris who he loved in his lap," Michaud said.
Sues had various health problems in the last several years, but the death came as a shock to friends, Michaud said. He was 85.
But he would be remembered for his wild comic characters.
They included "Big Al," an effeminate sportscaster, and "Uncle Al the Kiddies Pal, »

Melissa Joan Hart is facing a lawsuit from her former manager who alleges she owes him commission payments. Kieran Maguire filed papers at Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday (26Oct11) claiming he entered into a verbal agreement with the star for his management services in 2006, following the end of her series Sabrina The Teenage Witch. The talent agent claims he negotiated a number of lucrative jobs for Hart, including a slot on Dancing With The Stars and her latest TV show Melissa & Joey. Maguire insists he was paid his rightful commissions for the first series of Melissa & Joey, but alleges he was fired in March (11) without warning and is owed payment for the rest of her time on the show, according to Deadline.com. The lawsuit is seeking commission for all Hart's appearances on Melissa & Joey. © WENN »
Melissa Joan Hart's former talent manager is suing her for refusing to pay him his cut of her earnings on the ABC Family sitcom Melissa & Joey (which, I'd imagine, adds up to approximately $2 and a Groupon for an ear candling). The manager, Kieran Maguire, asserts in the opening line: "Melissa Joan Hart has no heart." Nice.
She was also sued for racial profiling

Maguire alleges that when the former Sabrina The Teenage Witch star hired him in 2006, she orally agreed to pay him the standard 10%. When she failed, he got mad.
“This case is one more incident of an actress who seeks to take advantage of, mistreat and thumb her nose at those in her employ — in this instance the person who rescued her career as it was plummeting towards obscurity."

Talent manager Kieran Maguire filed suit Wednesday against Melissa Joan Hart, asserting colorfully that she “has no heart” for taking advantage of his services and then ditching him “once her popularity was brought back from obscurity.” Maquire says he and Hart entered into a verbal standard agreement for his management services in 2006 — after her series Sabrina The Teenage Witch ended a few years prior. The breach of contract suit filed in L.A. Superior Court points out that Hart agreed to pay and continued to pay Maguire 10% of her earnings for subsequent years during which Maguire says he worked closely with her talent agents, publicists, business managers, attorneys and others in guiding her career. As examples of fostering her progress Maguire cites Hart’s guest appearances on TV shows such as Dancing With the Stars, her participation in ad campaigns for Kellogg’s, Huggies, Pillsbury and Gain laundry detergent, a »

Melissa Joan Hart has blasted the "vicious allegations" of racial discrimination in a lawsuit launched by an ex-employee. The Sabrina The Teenage Witch star and chiefs at her 'Sweetharts' candy company have been sued by Shana Kharineh, who claimed that she was fired from a store in California due to her ethnicity. Kharineh, who managed the establishment before her dismissal in August, claimed that she was given a special uniform after bosses decided that "black on black did not look appropriate". She also said that she was forced to work 60 hours a week with no overtime or breaks, during which she was "berated and humiliated" by co-workers. Kharineh suggested in legal (more) »

A representative for former teen star Melissa Joan Hart has slammed a lawsuit from a former manager of the actress' candy store, insisting it contains "vicious allegations".
Shana Kharineh sued the Sabrina the Teenage Witch actress and her Sweetharts company over claims she was fired as the California store's manager because of her race and complaints about working conditions.
In court documents filed in Los Angeles on Thursday, Kharineh claims she was wrongfully dismissed in August, was racially discriminated against and has not received full wages owed.
She states her bosses gave her a special dress code because she was African-American, making her wear a different colour to the standard uniform of black because "black on black did not look appropriate".
She also claims she was forced to work 60-hour weeks without breaks or overtime payments.
A spokesperson for Hart denies the allegations, insisting the actress has no involvement in the day-to-day running of the store.
The rep tells E! Online, "Melissa Joan Hart is the owner of Sweetharts Sweets in Sherman Oaks, California. While the shop was her vision, Melissa does not currently function in a day-to-day operational capacity, and has never met Shana Kharineh.
"Sweetharts Sweets is an equal opportunity employer, as is Melissa Joan Hart. Neither Sweetharts Sweets nor Melissa engages in or condones any form of discrimination whatsoever. There is no basis whatsoever to these vicious allegations." »
TV is full of shows set in their own universes, worlds different from our own (sometimes slightly, sometimes drastically) that open up new avenues for storytellers to explore. It can be a lot of fun to ponder what it would be like to live in a particular universe, to explore that different world, but would it be a positive or negative experience? Here is a list of which TV universes you would and would not want to live in.
Would Want to Live In
Pros: You get to earn a degree, however slowly, and live out your favorite movie moments through the constant homages structuring your life. Plus, paintball!
Pros: You get to do magic, which seems to be lots of fun, incredibly convenient (at least come spring cleaning), and seems to have very few down sides. Plus you get to live longer. »

Don’t underestimate Sergio Cilli. Just because his specialty as the music critic on Current TV’s Infomania pegged him for the dude to talk to about why The Black Eyed Peas are so grating doesn’t mean he’s not Very Very Funny, which he is! This guy just put out a very funny sketch that asks a very important question that flies way too far below the radar: Why Are Sitcoms Funny? And the answer may surprise you. (Actually, it won’t. There are jokes in these sitcoms, and the jokes “make” “people” “laugh.” Seriously, Sabrina The Teenage Witch and Joey Russo are On Television. Now! In 2011! And There Are Jokes On Their Show.)

Archie Comics reports it will partner with the Moonscoop production company ("Fantastic Four", "Casper") to create a new animated series based on the Archie property "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch".
"'Sabrina' is a huge and important character," said Archie co-ceo Jon Goldwater, "so we were very careful in how we brought her back to animation. The team at Moonscoop are the perfect partners for us. They know how to put together quality animation and they 'get' the characters."
Following the "Madhouse" appearances, Sabrina became a regular in the comic book series, "Archie's TV Laugh-Out", published from 1969 to 1985.
The character then received her own title, "Sabrina The Teenage Witch", published from 1971 to 1983.
In 1970, CBS debuted a Filmation animated "Sabrina', that aired for 4 seasons, including shorts featuring the monstrous 'Groovie Goolies'.
In 1996, the comic book was adapted into a live-action Mow, followed by the "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" TV series, airing for 7 seasons, »

As you've probably heard (we may have mentioned it a few times), Oscar winner Steven Soderbergh is preparing to film the Citizen Kane of beefcake films. No doubt, Magic Mike will be competing for Oscars this time next year.
You may think that a film about stripping will be silly, and a walk in the park for these actors, but this is serious business. If there's one word that will never be used in conjunction with this movie, it's "fluff."
Oh wait. Actually, that word may play a role.
What I mean is that it's not going to be as simple as it looks. Stripping isn't only about taking your clothes off. »
If you’re anywhere between the ages of, say, 20 and 35 and reading this website, the question of whether you gleefully devoured ABC’s Friday night, family-friendly line-up Tgif is purely rhetorical. Of course you did.
There’s no doubt you loved Full House, Step By Step, Boy Meets World, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Perfect Strangers, and a variety of other ridiculously addictive shows. (Personally, I spent those Friday evenings stretched out on the floor of my living room with my three siblings and several Book It-earned personal pan pizzas from Pizza Hut. Holla! The ’90s were amazing.) But when it »

Carley salutes a comic book movie that might not have set the box office alight, but still deserves lots of love. It's Josie And The Pussycats...
It's fair to say we're in a renaissance of comic book heroes making it onto the big screen, with Batman, Spider-Man, Thor, Iron Man and many more taking centre stage at a cinema near you.
However, many moons ago, another comic book favourite made the leap to cinemas, Josie And The Pussycats, and although it flopped at the box office, it's come to be a bit of a cult favourite over the years and is proof that you don't have to have superpowers to entertain the pants off your audience.
