2008 Year in Review: Television

16 December 2008 8:20 PM, PST | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

Last year in our annual overview of the Year in Television, Malinda Lo wrote, “Though there is still plenty of room for improvement — particularly on broadcast TV — the low points of 2007 do not contradict the fact that lesbian/bi representation on TV this past year has increased and improved significantly.”

Clearly, a lot can change in a year.

Though 2008 comes to a close with word of possible new queer female characters on the horizon in the coming year, the prospects for lesbians and bisexual women on television over the last twelve months have been somewhat grim.

This has been particularly true for lesbians, whose numbers on scripted network television have now dwindled to zero.

While portrayals of lesbian characters on Grey’s Anatomy and Cashmere Mafia (both on ABC) showed initial promise, it wasn’t long before their storylines turned sour and came to a screeching halt, due to either »

Lapaglia Injured In Stunt Accident

1 October 2008 12:24 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Australian actor Anthony Lapaglia was reportedly injured on-set of his latest movie Balibo after a stunt went badly wrong.

The Without A Trace star was hurt after an explosive device discharged into his arm during a scene in which Lapaglia's character is shot.

The device, which creates an authentic gun-shot sound, exploded into Lapaglia's arm instead of firing outwards, which would have looked on camera as if the star had been shot.

The star, who is filming in Darwin, was taken to nearby Royal Darwin Hospital to receive medical treatment, according to Australia's Northern Territory News.

A source tells the publication, "It was the scene where East (Lapaglia's character) was going to get shot. They put the explosives on back-to-front.'' »

Lapaglia Considered For Soprano Movie

23 June 2008 6:20 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Without A Trace star Anthony Lapaglia almost got a second chance to play Tony Soprano when The Sopranos writers considered a film-within-a-tv show for the series' final season.

Australian Lapaglia was one of the first actors considered as the Soprano family leader before the role went to James Gandolfini.

But, in a new interview with show creator David Chase for an upcoming final season DVD, the writer reveals Lapaglia was considered again as the star of a spin-off movie about Tony Soprano.

In the DVD special interview, Chase tells interviewer and Sopranos fan Alec Baldwin that he and producers dabbled with the idea of Soprano's psychologist, played by Lorraine Bracco, writing a book about her encounters with the mob boss.

Lapaglia would have played Soprano in the movie adaptation. »

CBS has renewed 11 scripted series for next season, including the hit procedurals NCIS, Criminal Minds and the "CSI" trio, the top comedy Two and a Half Men as well as promising freshman sitcom The Big Bang Theory.

The other series getting pickups are the dramas Cold Case, Without a Trace, Ghost Whisperer and Numbers.

Surprisingly, the list doesn't include Monday comedy How I Met Your Mother, which also was left hanging last season until an eleventh-hour renewal. The series, recently picked up for nine more episodes this season, has a good chance to return in the fall, sources said.

Also up in the air is the fate of four series that are returning soon with originals -- freshman cult favorite Moonlight, Shark, "The New Adventures of Old Christine" and Rules of Engagement -- as well as two dramas that were not picked up for more episodes, The Unit and freshman Cane.

The pickup news follows last month's renewals of two CBS reality series: Survivor, which has been extended through its 18th season, and The Amazing Race, which will be back for its 13th edition. »

Black Monday at TV studios

15 January 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »


UPDATED 5:02 p.m. PT Jan. 14

The force majeure ax swung wide Monday as four TV studios -- CBS Paramount Network TV, Universal Media Studios, 20th Century Fox Television and Warner Bros. TV -- tore up dozens of overall deals.

All four issued similarly worded statements blaming the writers strike for the terminations, which are expected to save the studios tens of millions of dollars. But none came close to the nearly 30 overall deals axed at ABC Studios on Friday. CBS Par and 20th TV each dropped half that number. UMS and WBTV stayed in the single digits, with WBTV's termination tally said to be less than five deals. Like ABC Studios, CBS Par, UMS, 20th TV and WBTV mostly went after writers, producers and directors with no active projects.

CBS Par's force majeure list includes some high-profile writing and nonwriting producers: Hugh Jackman, whose Seed Prods. inked a multiyear deal at the studio in August; "The Chronicles of Narnia" producer Mark Johnson; veteran writer-producer Rene Echevarria, who co-created CBS Par's USA Network series "The 4400" (he will continue his services as exec producer on the studio's NBC drama "Medium"); the Emmy-winning "Sopranos" writing duo of Mitchell Burgess and Robin Green; Barry Schindel ("Numbers"); and John McNamara ("Fastlane").

Scribes Jennifer Levin ("Without a Trace"), Liz Astrof ("The King of Queens") and the team of Aron Abrams and Greg Thompson ("Everybody Hates Chris") also received termination letters from CBS Par. »

Last Thursday of new episodes lackluster

12 January 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The last big Thursday with original regular programming was mostly a bust, as ABC's Grey's Anatomy, CBS' CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and NBC's The Apprentice posted their lowest adults 18-49 ratings for a fresh Thursday episode.

The two Thursday giants, Grey's (7.0 rating/17 share among adults 18-49, 17.6 million viewers overall) and "CSI" (5.0/12, 18.1 million) still dominated the night, finishing first among adults 18-49 and total viewers, respectively.

The originals of Grey's and "CSI" at 9 p.m. took a toll on Celebrity Apprentice (3.5/8, 8.1 million), which fell 22% from its premiere last week, according to preliminary Nielsen estimates.

NBC's My Name Is Earl (3.4/9, 7.7 million) was solid at 8 p.m., winning the half-hour in the 18-49 demo, but the final available original episode of 30 Rock (2.8/7, 6.0 million) fell to third place at 8:30 p.m. behind ABC's Ugly Betty and Fox's "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?"

At 10 p.m., NBC's "ER" (3.5/10, 9.1 million) edged CBS' Without a Trace (3.3/9, 13.2 million).

For the night, ABC (4.2/11, 11.9 million) and CBS (3.5/9, 13.5 million) split the top honors in adults 18-49 and total viewers. »
