Maureen Ryan: Locke vs. The Volcano: Terry O'Quinn Anchors Disaster Miniseries
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
We've got TV shows that explore what would happen if zombies, alien invasions or power outages nudge us into End Times territory. What about rampant volcanoes? Bet you didn't think about that, all you fancypants anti-magma apocalyptic futurists! To remedy this omission, along comes "Ring of Fire" (8 p.m. ET, Monday, Reelz Channel), which posits that, of all the Extinction-Level Events that face us, volcanoes deserve to be ranked right up there with meteors, the undead and enslavement by tentacle-waving aliens. (Note: "Ring of Fire" really likes the phrase "extinction-level event." If you watch this, be aware that you may find yourself slipping it in to everyday conversation.) Does "Ring of Fire" have a point worth making about volcano danger? Confession time: I did not pick this production out of the pile of advance screeners on my desk because I'm up nights worrying about what unchecked lava might do to my family. I chose to watch this miniseries -- all four ho ...

'The Artist' Scene Stealer Takes Spotlight as Hollywood Goes to the Dogs for Genesis Awards
TV Week - almost 5 years
Just as he did in the Academy Award-winning “The Artist,” canine star Uggie nearly stole the show at the 26th Genesis Awards, presented by the Humane Society of the United States. The 22 winners were announced Saturday, March 24, at a ceremony at The Beverly Hilton. The Genesis Awards honor the news and entertainment media’s work in raising public awareness of animal issues and confronting cruelty. The majority of the categories recognize television work, including local and national news, newsmagazines, talk shows, reality series and documentaries. The scene-stealing terrier came out on stage as host Carrie Ann Inaba of “Dancing with the Stars” opened the program in the packed International Ballroom, after guests were served, naturally, a vegan dinner.
