Ask Matt: Mom & Laugh Tracks, Dexter and Broadchurch Finales
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
Why do sitcoms insist on using these horrible laugh tracks still? I found it so distracting it took away from any viewing pleasure. Funny you bring this up, as I was recently chastised by a star/producer for disparaging a show's "laugh track," reminded in no uncertain terms that shows like these are filmed in front of a live studio audience. Look at the ratings for The Big Bang Theory, the best current practitioner of this most classic form of TV comedy, from the same producer of Mom and with the same screaming soundtrack. Many of these shows are more theatrical in feel and joke-driven, but I laugh out loud just as often watching filmed comedies like The Middle, Modern Family, early-year 30 Rock and the parts of Parks and Recreation that don't involve Tom Haverford. While I understand the audience (not always canned) laughter is a deal-breaker for some, it's a part of TV tradition and history that I acknowledge and honor, when the show lives up to it. During the final two seaso ...

Kim Raver In Talks To Join '24: Live Another Day' For A Jack And Audrey Reunion
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Kim Raver is in talks to return to "24" for the revival series "Live Another Day," HuffPost TV has confirmed. As first reported by TVLine, Raver is nearing a deal to reprise her role as Audrey Raines, the former love interest of Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) in the 12-episode event series, which is scheduled to premiere in May 2014. Raver first joined "24" in Season 4 and remained a regular through Season 5, before appearing in a recurring capacity in Season 6, in which her character was kidnapped and tortured by the villainous Cheng Zhi and his men. Although she was seen in a catatonic state, executive producer Howard Gordon later reassured fans, "Audrey is so not dead. She’s not even in a coma. In my opinion, she is at the very worst in a psychiatric facility, but she may also be married to a contractor in Virginia who has a child." If Raver's deal is finalized, she'll join fellow "24" alums Sutherland and Mary Lynn Rajskub in the new season. Behind the scenes, executive produ ...

Boom Tron - over 3 years
General Hospital fans know actor Roger Howarth as Franco, the killer character. We’ll be seeing Howarth in a whole new light when he begins his new, multi-episode arc for Showtime’s Californication. David Duchovny’s Hank Moody returns with season 7 of Californication in 2014 in a season which will have a thing or two to do with writing for television. Might that be a welcomed change for Hank after getting his fill of the music industry? Heather Graham and Mary Lynn Rajskub will guest star, with Graham playing a mysterious chick from Hank’s past. Rajskub on the other hand, will portray another writer. As we also previously reported, Emmy-winning Sopranos actor Michael Imperioli will be joining the cast as a television producer.

By Alonso Duralde LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - It might not have the lyricism of "Mud," the eccentricity of "Moonrise Kingdom" or the angst of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," but "The Kings of Summer" brings its own strengths to the table, from the oddball wit of Chris Galletta's screenplay to a charming ensemble cast that includes vets like Nick Offerman and Mary-Lynn Rajskub as well as a slew of young TV talent. ...

Melinda Hill: Dysfunctional Dater #6: My Big Fat Fake Engagement
The Huffington Post - almost 4 years
My longest relationship has been with commitment phobia. But I seriously do think I could get married if I could do it with a month-to-month lease. And if all gay people were also allowed to do it. While being single is generally a wonderful cornucopia of exciting joys and odors, intermittently waking up to find a crime scene of googled exes on my laptop from the night before is not an indication of spiritual alignment. For better or for worse, I did recently get engaged. By changing my Facebook status to "engaged." Did you know that all you have to do to be validated by the entire world is just get engaged? Suddenly people think you're worthwhile because you're marriage material. People have been writing the nicest comments -- "He's a lucky guy, you're so smart and cool!" One guy private messaged me to say he's always wanted to hook up with me and now wonders if it's too late. It's more attention than I've gotten in all of my miserable life. It's exhilarating and fantast ...
