Lelia Nebeker: Dear ABC: Just Stop Trying to Air Shows on Thursdays at 8 (It's Getting Embarrassing)
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Last week, ABC canceled the midseason conspiracy drama Zero Hour after airing just three episodes. In case you missed it -- either because you were taking a really long nap, or maybe you just blinked -- Zero Hour was about an editor of a paranormal-themed magazine (Anthony Edwards) whose wife goes missing, and in his quest to find her, he discovers that he's part of a larger conspiracy that threatens the world as we know it. With its cataclysmic prophecies and borderline-supernatural mythology, Zero Hour reminded me of one of its time slot predecessors: FlashForward. Remember that show? It was the one where the entire world blacked out at the same time and saw flashes of their futures. Sounds promising, right? It was. Like Zero Hour, FlashForward couldn't find its footing in the Thursday 8 p.m. time slot, and it didn't help that its run was interrupted by the 2010 Winter Olympics. FlashForward was among the first shows to fall victim to ABC's Thursday night curse. Since then, ...

Vanity Fair: Paul Rudd on Stuttering, Bullying, and How He Still Uses Humor as a Defense Mechanism
Huffington Post - over 4 years
By Bennett Marcus, Vanity Fair The first-ever Paul Rudd All Star Bowling Benefit on Monday raised funds for Our Time, an organization that helps young people who stutter bolster their confidence and communication skills. So how did this become the "Paul Rudd" bowling benefit? The actor explained that he found out about the organization six years ago, while doing research for a play in which his character stuttered. "I got to know the kids, and I came to some of their meetings and learned about the foundation," Rudd told VF Daily at the event at Lucky Strike in Manhattan. "And I think playing a character who had a really bad stutter, I kind of, for the first time, really approached this affliction from the point of view of somebody who suffers from it," he said. "I started thinking how hard it is to be a kid anyway, how hard it is to kind of talk with anybody, regardless of how old you are, but then to have a stutter, and have to contend with bullies, and, you kno ...
