PTC Urges ‘SNL’ to Be ‘Mindful’ of the F-Bombs for 8:30pm West Coast Airings

PTC Urges ‘SNL’ to Be ‘Mindful’ of the F-Bombs for 8:30pm West Coast Airings
Mind the f–ks, please. That’s pretty much the Parents Television Council’s message to NBC over the network’s decision to try out airing “Saturday Night lIve” live coast-to-coast. For the first time in its history, “Saturday Night Live” will air at 8:30 p.m. Pt, as opposed to tape-delayed. That’s got Tim Winter a bit concerned. “With NBC’s announcement that the entire nation will be watching the same live performance over its final four weeks, we are calling on NBC to be mindful that its one broadcast feed will air outside the ‘Safe Harbor’ for

Behind the Scenes With Sarah Hyland and Julianne Hough on Golden Globes Night

It's all in the details! Celebrity stylist Anita Patrickson was one busy woman on Sunday. Not only did she dress two attendees, Modern Family's Sarah Hyland and Before Midnight's Julie Delpy, but she also had to get Julianne Hough ready for the afterparties. The Safe Harbor star ended up rocking a black Emilio Pucci gown—LBDs dominated the post-Globes events—but it was her jewelry that was really eye-catching. Hough sported an elaborate combo of seven different rings on her hands. "We wanted to have a little fun and do something a bit different! All the bugs on her fingers were so fun to place and figure out what to put where," Patrickson shares with E! News...

PTC slams CBS for Super Bowl f-bomb: 'Enough is enough'

A TV watchdog group is going after CBS for airing the f-word during Sunday’s Super Bowl telecast.

The Parents Television Council is calling on the Federal Communications Commission to take action against the broadcaster after Baltimore Ravens quarterback and Super Bowl Xlvii Mvp Joe Flacco threw out an enthusiastic profanity while enjoying his team’s victory.

“This is f–king awesome!” the Super Bowl Mvp exclaimed while hugging teammate Marshal Yanda after the game. The expletive was captured by a nearby microphone and aired live on CBS.

“Despite empty assurance after empty assurance from the broadcast networks that they would never air indecent material,

NCIS, Ep. 10.04, “Lost at Sea”: Intriguing premise let down by mild execution

NCIS, Season 10, Episode 4: “Lost at Sea”

Written by Christopher J. Waild

Directed by Tony Wharmby

Sarandon Assaulted As A Young Actress

Sarandon Assaulted As A Young Actress
Susan Sarandon has been acting for more than four decades. She's won an Oscar, been nominated for five Emmys and is an outspoken social and political activist. But Sarandon recently revealed that she was once a victim.

In the November 2012 issue of Elle magazine (via Radar), Sarandon opened up about being assaulted in her early acting years.

"It was not successful -- for either of us," Sarandon told Elle. "I just went into a room, and a guy practically threw me on the desk. It was my early days in New York, and it was really disgusting. It wasn't like I gave it a second thought, it was so badly done."

The actress wouldn't reveal what she was auditioning for in that instance.

In 2010, Sarandon launched a worldwide petition to lobby state governments for "Safe Harbor" laws that protect victims of sex trafficking. "I choose very carefully the groups I talk about,

NCIS Round Table: "Safe Harbor"

  • TVfanatic
Our official NCIS review broke down Tuesday's episode in great detail.

Now, TV Fanatic staff members Steve Marsi, Matt Richenthal and Eric Hochberger have assembled for a weekly Round Table Q&A discussion of events from "Safe Harbor."

Join in below, as we analyze various aspects of the team's adventures ...


What was your general take on this episode?

Steve: I loved it, as I have most of Season 9 so far. NCIS just keeps rolling. "Safe Harbor," like previous weeks, was loaded with great character moments, both touching and funny. Despite a couple of holes in the mystery, it was a typically strong installment, well-written and acted by this perennially underrated cast.

Matt: Terrific guest appearances by Shohreh Aghdashloo and Diane Neal. Decent enough plot, but not the best; Made up for with plenty of laughs and heart, however

Eric: Not quite as good as "Enemy on the Hill," but that was hard to top,

NCIS Episode Preview: Meet Ducky's New Girlfriend ...

  • TVfanatic
The promo for the next new NCIS promises an episode so compelling you can't turn it off.

Most NCIS fans don't turn any episodes off, especially when they're as good as recent weeks (see our review of "Safe Harbor" from last night), but next Tuesday's plot, in which a case is re-classified from accidental death to murder when evidence reveals a Navy lieutenant died of forced over-hydration, does sound unique.

More importantly, Cheryl Ladd guest stars as Ducky's new love interest. First Lily Tomlin and now one of Charlie's Angels. Dr. Mallard is definitely doing well for himself in the dating department.

NCIS Considers Offering Safe Harbor

NCIS Considers Offering Safe Harbor

NCIS teams up with Coast Guard investigator Abigail Borin (Diane Neal) when a Coast Guard petty officer is shot dead aboard what was thought to have been an abandoned ship floating toward Norfolk Naval Station.

Safe Harbor” focused on a Lebanese family–a husband, wife, and two sons–found in one of the ship’s compartments. At first, they claimed to have sought passage from the ship’s crew, but it was soon determined they four had been the only people aboard for a week. The United States’ immigration policies generated much of the episode’s tension. Some would say the family should have been granted asylum right away, that the U.S. should provide to all the freedom for which it stands. The episode challenged that notion by identifying the father as a former terrorist bomber.

So “Safe Harbor” was a classic shell game:

NCIS Review: Searching For the Next Mrs. Gibbs

  • TVfanatic
Who is the perfect woman for Leroy Jethro Gibbs?

Much of this week's NCIS was amusingly dedicated to this very topic, with the team motivated by two factors to find that elusive female. They believe Gibbs is lonely and they like their boss a lot, sure. But they're also just working absurd hours lately and feel he needs something to occupy his time.

With Tony heading the search committee (obviously), this plot was introduced during the opening credits of "Safe Harbor", along with a head-scratcher of a case that gave NCIS and Cgis joint jurisdiction.

The Coast Guard's Gibbs equivalent, Abby Borin (Diane Neal), is always fun to watch interact with the team, and was obviously a top-tier candidate right away as far as Dinozzo was concerned.

Like Dinozzo, I would be all about Team Bibbs if they decided to give it a shot, but she negged that idea from the start.

NCIS Episode Preview: Who is Gibbs' Ideal Woman?

  • TVfanatic
When a coast guard officer is gunned down on a cargo vessel, NCIS searches for the killer, putting the agents smack in the middle of a deadly terrorist plot and an international diplomatic quagmire.

That's coming up next week on NCIS, as Gibbs teams with Cgis investigate a murder and in the process uncover a family seeking political asylum. Working with Cgis, of course, means Abby's back.

Not Abby Scuito, the focal point of last night's outstanding episode (see our NCIS review from earlier), but Special Agent Abigail Borin, the redheaded, Cgis Gibbs counterpart played by Diane Neal.

Also intriguing? CBS' official press release for the episode says that "Tony and McGee try and find the perfect woman for Gibbs." What do you think that entails exactly - and is it next Tuesday yet?

Here's a promo for "Safe Harbor," in which SecNav Jarvis (Matt Craven) returns as well:
