The New York Times wrote a great article about the brilliance of Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes. The piece, "Network TV Is Broken. So How Does Shonda Rhimes Keep Making Hits?", starts out with this stellar quote from Rhimes (to the Scandal writing staff), “I love that the gay White House chief of staff is threatening to pretend the first lady is a closeted lesbian, it is so wrong. In the best way.”

Tragedy struck both productions on "Smash," as the fallout from last week's car crash finale hit hard. After teasing it out briefly, it was revealed that Kyle had died when he got hit by that car, leaving a hole at the heart of "Hit List." Vulture was a little surprised at how abruptly his death was handled.
"I thought we’d at least get a scene of Kyle in a coma," they said. "Or at the very least, Jimmy would have dashed out after him into the night to cradle his friend’s broken body and grant him a single chaste kiss on the forehead once his eyes had closed forever."
Against everyone's wishes -- and alienating Julie completely because of it -- Scott went ahead with the production that night. He lied and said that it was Julia who inspired the cast to go forward.

The fictional off-Broadway musical "Hit List" took another step closer to mirroring the true story of the Broadway musical "Rent" in the latest, quite touching, episode of "Smash," on NBC. "Rent," which started life at the New York Theatre Workshop, moved to Broadway in 1996, and later won a Pulitzer Prize, after its success at the downtown theater. Its creator, Jonathan Larson, died of an aortic dissection at age 35 the night before the off-Broadway premiere. »

Warning: If you haven’t seen this week’s Smash, stop reading now — there are spoilers ahead. Otherwise, proceed without caution!
Tonight’s Smash resolved a cliffhanger that no one — especially not optimistic young playwright Kyle Bishop — saw coming.
The car that came bearing down on Kyle at the end of last Saturday’s episode ultimately claimed his life, we learned in “The Phenomenon,” an hour in which his friends and colleagues mourned his loss and flashed back to key moments in their relationships with him.

Trevor Hogg chats with Academy Award nominated cinematographer Stephen Goldblatt about being a teenage photojournalist, working with director Mike Nichols, the Oscars and the current state of filmmaking...
My sister is a painter and architect, my father was a doctor but he always wanted to be a musician, and my mother was interested in painting. I was surrounded by art in my childhood,” states Stephen Goldblatt who was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and moved with his family to the United Kingdom at the age of seven; four years later he became obsessed with photography and later as a teenager Goldblatt was hired to work for London Life Magazine owned by the Sunday Times. “I was working as a photographer when I was 18. The thing about old style film photojournalism was that you were telling a story in still pictures and not being digital, you tended to try to do »
If anyone noticed a big run on Michelangelo’s David statues in Vegas and Palm Springs, blame it on production designer Howard Cummings and set decorator Barbara Munch. They’ve been working on Steven Soderbergh’s Liberace biopic, Behind the Candelabra, to air May 26 on HBO. And their job, as Cummings describes it, was to be on the lookout for “trash and treasure, high and low, and everything in excess.”
While it’s easy to laugh at the piano player’s over-the-top camp taste, Cummings developed a certain respect for that aesthetic as he scouted locations in Vegas, Palm Springs and L.A.
(From the pages of the April 23 issue of Variety.)
“Liberace was sensitive to the places, and he did adjust” his decor, says the designer. »

Yes Smash fans, unfortunately the end is near. NBC ‘s decision to move the show to the television graveyard that is Saturday night puts the final nail in the coffin for Smash. As disappointing as it is it better not discourage viewers from watching because there is still some good stuff left here, if only for the original songwriting. We’re finally getting to the inevitable face-off between Bombshell and Hit List. Even with the schedule changes hopefully those dedicated few will continue to watch and prove to NBC that they had something pretty terrific here and ruined it.
“Musical Chairs” features directors Tom and Derek taking on their new shows. Tom fails miserably at trying to teach new choreography to the Bombshell cast since Derek refuses to sign »

Good morning, Brewbies!
Good news: Comic Book Resources ran an interview with Batwoman writer/artist J.H. Williams yesterday, in which he said that our favorite lesbian superhero has a long future ahead of her, one that will include her girlfriend, Detective Maggie Sawyer:
Haden and I are super excited over this new direction for Kate and Maggie. We love that Kate did the proposal and revealed herself to be Batwoman all at once. It's like she is saying to Maggie, "You want to know what I've been doing, who I am, this is who I am, will you still love me?" We're planning this to be a prolonged story. The couple has a lot of issues to work out between them, and they both have baggage from other relationships that they bring to the table. It's not going to be easy. This is the »

If all the Glee fans jump up and down at once, will we experience an earthquake? You’d better brace yourself just in case, because today’s Glee update is a whopper. The gorgeous and talented actress, Idina Menzel, is reprising her role on the Fox series. Mamma Mia? I should say, “Mamma Lea!”
Of course, Menzel plays actress Lea Michelle’s birth mom, Shelby, on the song and dance show. So, this is potentially very big news for Rachel Berry. The world even got the announcement from the star herself, via Twitter, when Lea Michelle typed, “I spy @idinamenzel at #Glee today! So excited to have my mama back!” You’ve gotta love it when stars Tweet news like this.
As Shelby, Menzel isn’t only the absentee mamma to Rachel, who was raised by her two adoptive fathers, but she shocked audiences when she adopted the baby of Quinn, »

Love him or hate him, I always enjoy a good Lemond Bishop episode of The Good Wife, as there is always just so. much. drama, and this week was no exception.
Before we get to all that, though, the first thing we witness in this week’s episode are signs of Lockhart Gardner rolling in the good times again: new modernist paintings being carted in to hang on walls, fancy finger foods at meetings, and Creepy M&M Lawyer proposing at a steering committee meeting that the 27th and 29th floors that were lost earlier this season be bought back. Alicia, by the way, is now a member of said steering committee.
Yep, that’s me.
Creepy M&M Guy and Will are staunchly for this buy back, while Diane and Alicia are more along the lines of, “Heeeey, yeah, so, »
