Lauren Graham is securing her post-Parenthood career, starting with a stint on CBS' The Odd Couple reboot starring Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon. Graham will play Gaby, the ex-wife of Perry's Oscar Madison, which is something of a meta moment, considering Graham and Perry were once an item. (As of right now, Graham is currently dating co-star Peter Krause, he of the "great biceps.") But the two have worked well together as this marks the third Perry venture she has guest-starred on: The first two were Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Go On. Hopefully though this show will see better days than the other two. »

Lauren Graham’s TV success continues onward. With her current series Parenthood working on its last season, she just found herself with a new role. Lauren will guest star on The Odd Couple reboot. She will play the ex-wife to Matthew Perry’s character Oscar. Her role will be of Gaby, his ex-wife who still shares a sassy and odd chemistry. They both will be joined on the mid-season replacement Thomas Lennon and Yvette Nicole Brown. No premier date has been announced as of it.
I am happy for Lauren, as I have been a fan of her work in everything that I have ever seen her in. She can play many roles and it will be interesting to see how she bodes with Matthew. I am sure we can expect some amazing things from this show, especially with the amazing cast that they have lined up so far. They »

Bad news, Braverman fans. Monica Potter says that this really, really is the last season of Parenthood. When the actress stopped by EW Radio, she said Jason Katims and the writers want to end on "a high note" (which is hard to do when each episode sends fans headfirst into a box of Kleenex). But if EW senior writer Sara Vilkomerson has come to terms with this news, we will too. What we won't be on board with is the fact that Zeek and Camille's house is now the Bad Judge set. Potter described her and costar Craig T. Nelson »

“Parenthood” actress Lauren Graham has been cast as a guest star in CBS's upcoming reboot of the Neil Simon classic “The Odd Couple.” Graham, whose NBC series is preparing to wrap up with a sixth and final season, has been cast as Gaby, the ex-wife of Perry's sloppy sportswriter Oscar.

Lauren Graham to reunite with ex Matthew Perry on “The Odd Couple” The “Parenthood” star will play Perry’s ex-wife, Gabby. Mama June releases a “truth video” following TLC’s “Honey Boo Boo” cancelation "I have not seen that person in 10 years, and do not seem to want to see that person,” Mama June says in the dimly lit video posted on Facebook, which also thanks fans for their support. Allison Williams didn’t audition for “Peter Pan Live!” and isn’t scared of anything going wrong “I’m not scared because everyone is working to the best of their ability. I am really type A in this preparation,” she says. “And the other thing is that my biggest training ground is improv. I’ll know how to handle things if something goes wrong. The myriad things that can go wrong is why most of America will tune in.” Click »

The actress, whose NBC drama is in the midst of its final, 13-episode season, has landed a guest-starring role on CBS’ upcoming reboot of The Odd Couple, where she’ll play the ex-wife of Matthew Perry’s Oscar, TVLine has confirmed.
Despite the fact that the union between Oscar and Graham’s character, Gaby, was a stormy, the couple will nevertheless exhibit warm chemistry as divorcées.
The Odd Couple is borrowing from Matthew Perry's real life and casting Lauren Graham as Oscar's ex-wife. E! News can confirm the Parenthood star will pop up on the midseason CBS sitcom as the former Mrs. Madison. Perry and Graham dated off camera and have costarred opposite each other in Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and recently on NBC's now-canceled Go On. Graham played a love interest on Go On as well. On CBS's The Odd Couple, Graham will play Gaby, Oscar's ex. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the two still care for one another despite a rocky marriage. The midseason comedy is based on the Neil Simon hit about two radically different roommates, Oscar Madison (Perry) and Felix Unger (Thomas Lennon). »
A quick review of last night's "Parenthood" coming up just as soon as my sister gives me her condoms... My local NBC station pre-empted a good chunk of "The Scale of Affection Is Fluid" last night to cover the press conference about the New York doctor with Ebola, which means I didn't get to watch it til this morning, and unfortunately don't have a lot of time to write about what was one of this season's stronger episodes. The hour not only tabled some of the season's more problematic storylines (this was Lauren Graham and Ray Romano's week off, for instance, so no Hank/Ruby drama), but found ways to liven up other ones that hadn't been entirely working. The show's weird blame game in the Joel/Julia separation has been a mess, for instance, but the question of how the kids and Joel would react to Chris' introduction »

With Parenthood's end in sight, Lauren Graham has lined up a new gig. The actress has been tapped for a guest role on CBS' upcoming The Odd Couple reboot, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. In the comedy based on Neil Simon's Broadway play, Graham will play Gaby, the ex-wife of Matthew Perry's Oscar Madison. Gaby and Oscar lived through a contentious marriage — and divorce — but beneath all the bickering, there remains a deep connection and affection between them.

In a bit of meta casting, Graham will be playing Perry’s character Oscar Madison’s ex-wife in the modern retelling of Neil Simon’s 1965 play, reported Entertainment Weekly. As the story goes, Oscar and Gaby go through a rough divorce, but find a deep friendship and affection for one another following the end of their marriage. After the divorce, the laidback Oscar moves in with the ever-uptight Felix Unger, who will be played by Thomas Lennon (Night at the Museum, Reno 911!).
Graham and Perry, who dated after meeting in 2002, have previously worked together on Perry’s other sitcom efforts Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Go On. Graham, who is best known for playing single mom Lorelai Gilmore on Gilmore Girls, currently stars on Parenthood, »
Heaven help me, I’ve taken to using lyrics from the Broadway musical Chicago in my recap headlines for The Voice. (Sample comment from my husband, reading over my shoulder, “I don’t get that reference. At all.” #GayCardRevoked)
But I swear, there’s good reason for my flight of fancy. After all, Season 7’s Blind Auditions yielded exactly one promising jazz vocalist — and yet after a Battle Rounds process that whittled the field from 48 down to 32 contestants, that chica is as extinct as the dodo emu, as defunct as the Walkman in your “shame-shame closet,” as mopped up as »
Tonight on Person of Interest (CBS, 10/9), Finch asks the question many of us have wondered ever since Samaritan went online: How is Root able to flit around from persona to persona, while the rest of Team Machine is locked into one identity apiece?
In this above sneak peek, Root (played by Amy Acker) explains her “fluid” state as she sheds her Un translator’s red locks… and more… while Finch (Michael Emerson) does his best to avert his male gaze.
“Did you see last night’s ratings for ‘Ray Donovan?’”
It’s the morning after the show’s second-season finale, and Showtime president David Nevins sounds like a proud father, high-fiving a visitor to his Westwood office and firing off stats: The Liev Schreiber drama hit a series-high 2 million viewers. “It’s up 40% from last year,” he says, with a broad grin.
Nevins has good reason to be happy on this late-September day. “Ray Donovan” indeed blossomed into a ratings hit for his network in its sophomore season (even with behind-the-scenes drama forcing a change in showrunner for season three). “Masters of Sex” also wrapped its second season with heightened critical acclaim for the show and the performances of stars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan.
With a week to go before the fourth-season relaunch of “Homeland,” the early reviews are mostly good as the drama reboots itself in an effort »

Let's be honest: Everyone could use a little Adam Braverman in their life.
Since NBC's Parenthood debuted in 2010, we've watched Zeke and Camille's firstborn — played so perfectly by Peter Krause — grow from being a tad neurotic and overprotective to quickly become the family's shoulder to cry on and one of our favorite characters on television. Whether it was attempting to "hip it up" to get a rapper's business, wearing a pirate costume for his son Max (Max Burkholder), trying to find the perfect wig for his wife Kristina (Monica Potter) during chemo or unleashing his signature dance moves (aka "The Fever"), here are the 31 times (so far) we have adored Adam Braverman.

Some talk shows lure guests with the promise of hyping a new project. Others deliver instant fame. And then there’s one that hopes to hook visitors with the sounds of an anthropomorphic chicken whose voice is reminiscent of a kazoo.
Chica, that clucking character, has held forth for seven years from the “Sunshine Barn,” a set placed in converted office space in Comcast Corp.’s Philadelphia headquarters, all part of kiddie-cabler Sprout’s “Sunny Side Up Show.” Now the character and her four handlers have a new roost: a tiny studio on the sixth floor of NBCUniversal’s 30 Rockefeller Plaza complex, not far from the wardrobe racks used by the Roots, the house band for Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show.” Chica and crew will continue to celebrate viewer birthdays and do crafts projects live seven days a week. The new twist? Every once in a while, a celebrity guest or musician will join them. »

"Kingdom" will continue to reign on Directv. Just a week after the series premiere, the platform has ordered an additional 20 episodes of the one-hour drama from creator Byron Balasco ("Detroit 1-8-7") and Endemol Studios ("Hell on Wheels"). Production will begin in spring 2015, with the first 10 episodes airing on the Audience Network next fall. The following 10 episodes will air sometime in 2016.

Despite mediocre and poor ratings, Parenthood managed to escape being cancelled for years. But now, NBC has decided to end the show with season six. Will the ratings rise in the final year or will they drop even lower? Will they regret the decision? Stay tuned.
Parenthood follows the lives of the extended Braverman family in Northern California. The large ensemble cast includes Bonnie Bedelia, Joy Bryant, Tyree Brown, Max Burkholder, Erika Christensen, Lauren Graham, Miles Heizer, Sam Jaeger, Peter Krause, Xolo Mariduena, Craig T. Nelson, Monica Potter, Savannah Paige Rae, Dax Shepard, and Mae Whitman.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am »
DirecTV is expanding its Kingdom.
The provider has ordered 20 additional episodes of its new Mma drama, our sister site Deadline reports, just two episodes into its 10-episode run on Audience Network.
According to DirecTV, Kingdom “has proven to be one of Audience Network’s most popular shows of all time.”
How many road trips must season six of Parenthood go on before season six of Parenthood can stop taking road trips?That’s not a lyric from a Bob Dylan song. But it might be the mantra I repeat privately, in my head, when I go on a silent retreat this weekend, one I sincerely hope will not be rudely crashed by Crosby Braverman while being led by Lindsay Weir’s guidance counselor. (Hey, Dave Allen. Sup?)Seriously, let’s recap, in mid-cry-cap, all the recent Parenthood road-trip madness. During the season-five finale, Drew impetuously drove to Oregon. This season’s first episode featured Crosby and Adam taking that improbably spontaneous trip to Vegas, which followed Sarah and Zeek’s slightly less random trip to Vegas. Last week gave us National Lampoon’s Amber and Drew Go to Wyoming Despite the Fact That It’s a Long-Ass Drive. And this week, »
