Why mess with a classic? (Seriously, though: Why?) Early promos did little to dispel the fear that the remake was a hot mess waiting to happen; reviews that came in right before the special’s airtime didn’t help, either.  The new version wasn’t totally reprehensible — Sarah Hyland, Debra Messing and Nicole Scherzinger are all charming, and J.

Katey Sagal Says 'Married With Children' Was A Sexist Show
Huffington Post - 11 months
“Married ... with Children” may be celebrating its 30th anniversary this week, but there’s very little to celebrate when it comes to the show’s treatment of women, according to Katey Sagal.  The sitcom, which aired on Fox from 1987 to 1997, centered on Al Bundy, husband, father, shoe salesman and founder of NO MA’AM (National Organization of Men Against Amazonian Masterhood). Sagal played his wife, Peggy, famous for her nasally, obnoxious catchphrase: “AAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL!” On Monday, during an appearance on AOL’s Build Series to promote her new memoir, the actress opened up about what it was like to star on what she described as a “very misogynistic show.” “The women were portrayed completely exploited on that show. That was part of Al Bundy’s thing — he liked hot women, and they showed them all the time,” Sagal told host Ricky Camilleri.   “[It wasn’t] necessarily my belief system,” she continued. “My belief system has nothing to do with being an actor. You know, I...

How To Use Social Media If You Are A Celebrity
Huffington Post - about 2 years
We all have stumbled upon many celebrity social media profiles. Some are obnoxious while others are brilliant. Why is that? Is it because we dislike the celebrity's character or their online image? Truth is, a great social media page can change our opinion about a celebrity and that's the reason public figures should pay attention to the way their social media pages are run. Are you a celebrity? Do you want to act like one? Adhere to the following rules and I promise you will be crowned a social media champion. Rule no 1: Don't be boring.

“Pitch Perfect 2″ represents the rare female centric comedy franchise
Hollywood News - almost 3 years
A few years ago, a musical comedy of sorts came almost out of nowhere to become a hit. It was Pitch Perfect, a film that managed to defy minimal expectations and forge not just a hit single (Cups), but also now a movie franchise. Yes, this weekend Pitch Perfect 2 hits theaters, riding high on fan excitement after the last one made over $100 million worldwide on a budget of merely $17 million. This time around, the now franchise has loftier goals, but if the early buzz is to be believed (I see it later on tonight), this one is just as good, if not better. If so, we’ll have the rare female-centric franchise out there to combat the many testosterone laced ones already in the marketplace. In case you didn’t see the first one, this is a music-filled comedy about The Bellas, the all-girls singing group at Barden University. Pitch Perfect centered around the entrance of Becca (played by Anna Kendrick) into the group, which took them up a notch. This time around in Pitch Perfect 2, the Barden...

Katey Sagal lets loose on her new album, 'Covered'
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
Katey Sagal lets loose on her new album, 'Covered' Katey Sagal, star of the television show "Sons of Anarchy," sneaked into the studio earlier this year to record "Covered," her first new album in nine years. On it, Sagal - who started her musical career singing backup for everyone from Bette Midler to Bob Dylan - takes on a handful of songs by Ryan Adams, Joni Mitchell, Tom Petty and others. Tell me about your first time performing at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. Were the songs you picked for "Covered" significant to you at different points in your life or just songs you liked? A lot of the songs are by male artists who write from a really personal space. Aidin Vaziri is The San Francisco Chronicle's pop music critic.

Conversations with Gary Numan, Katey Sagal and Los Lobos' Steve Berlin, Plus a Shelby Lynne Exclusive
Huffington Post - over 4 years
A Conversation with Gary Numan Mike Ragogna: Gary, when you look at what's going on in dance and industrial music, it seems like you're having the last laugh here. Gary Numan: [laughs] There is a lot of electronic music around and it seems to be having some kind of--I'm not sure if "renaissance" is quite the right word, but it does seem to be everywhere at the moment, which is a very good thing. But in a strange way, I don't feel that electronic music is "my thing." I know it's what I've done all my life, but I still feel slightly removed from it somehow. But I think it's good for music in general. The one thing that I have noticed, which I wouldn't say I'm "disappointed" by, but I am surprised by, one of the reasons I got into electronic music and why I've stayed a part of it for so long is that I've always seen it as the most forward-looking of all the genres. Its reason for being is to come up with new sounds and use technology to keep pushing forward. That's what makes it excit...

Paying Tribute to Lost Stars
Yahoo News - over 4 years
The producers of “Glee” were recently faced with a very difficult decision: how to pay tribute to a fallen cast member after the passing of actor Cory Monteith. Unfortunately, this dilemma has happened before. In 1982 Will Lee, who played Mr. Hooper on “Sesame Street,” died of a heart attack. The situation was particularly sensitive because of the show’s young audience. The producers decided to make Lee’s death into a learning moment and aired an episode called “Farewell, Mr. Hooper,” where the characters talk about Mr. Hooper dying. Death is also a challenging subject for comedy shows. John Ritter’s passing was addressed onscreen in the show “8 Simple Rules,” when the character of Cate, played by Katey Sagal, gets a phone call about the death of Ritter’s character, Paul Hennessy, and must deal with the loss as part of the show’s plot. Sometimes, a show is unable to survive after an actor’s death. In the fall of 1991, Redd Foxx was starring in a new CBS sitcom called, “The Royal Famil...

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass: huge crowds, mellow vibe
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
The 13th edition of the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival might break attendance records over the weekend, as hundreds of thousands of people pour into Golden Gate Park for the free three-day concert that stretches over three meadows along John F. Kennedy Drive and features almost 100 musical acts. The late billionaire investment banker Warren Hellman - who created an endowment to ensure that Hardly Strictly would continue as a free event for the city of San Francisco after his death in 2011 - approached Holliday to put the festival on in its first year and since then has cultivated it into an annual highlight of the San Francisco cultural calendar. The Banjo Stage is largely devoted to traditional country acts, with sets by Laurie Lewis, Steve Earle and the Dukes and the veteran Maryland bluegrass act Seldom Scene, who dedicated a song Friday to the late Hazel Dickens, the coal miner's daughter who inspired Hellman to put on the festival in the first place. There was an all-star ...

WATCH: Explosive New 'SOA' Promo Promises Mayhem
Huffington Post - over 4 years
"Sons of Anarchy" returns for Season 6 on Tues., Sept. 10 (airing 10 p.m. ET on FX), and the latest trailer is explosive, to say the least. The trailer shows Jax and the rest of the club riding past spray-painted images of Gemma (Katey Sagal), Clay (Ron Perlman), and Tara (Maggie Siff) before the building blows up, perhaps implying that Jax's (Charlie Hunnam) core relationships are about to self-destruct. The show stirred up some controversy at the recent Television Critics Association summer press tour after reporters saw the Season 6 premiere, which contains a scene that's shocking even by "SoA" standards. As well as addressing the violent premiere at TCA, show creator Kurt Sutter told critics that each episode of the hour-long show will be 15-30 minutes longer this season, so adjust your DVRs accordingly. Are you excited for the return of "Sons of Anarchy"?

Kurt Sutter Says Sons of Anarchy Prequel Series is a Few Years Off
Boom Tron - over 4 years
Can I get some honest opinions from Sons of Anarchy fans on whether a prequel series is something you would want? Creator Kurt Sutter has been talking about the potential for such a thing, but so far it is just talk and hasn’t moved forward in any capacity, but if it were would it be necessary? Do fans want to see what SAMCRO was like when John Teller was alive and running the club? I’ve only watched the first three seasons of the show and I already know I wouldn’t be interested in a prequel series and can only hope Sutter doesn’t waste his time trying to get it off the ground. Thankfully, if a prequel series were to happen it wouldn’t be for a few years. Sutter told Deadline he wants to wait for Sons of Anarchy to finish its run and let it rest for a year or so before trying the prequel idea. Season 6 of Sons is premiering this fall with Season 7 expected to be the last, so the prequel wouldn’t really get moving until 2016 at the earliest. Whose to say anyone involved in the show...

Jessica Zaleski: Somebody Wants To Get Married

Note: Do not read on if you have not yet seen Season 4, Episode 21 of Fox's "Glee," titled "Wonder-ful." Last week's episode of "Glee" set up a lot of plotlines for the end of the season, and next week's episode is the big finale. So what was this week's episode? Fluff. It starts with Rachel on the phone with Mr. Schue telling him she got a callback for "Funny Girl." He is very proud and tells her she's a Schue-in. She starts thanking him for everything he's done. And then what is that on your face, William? Is that a tear? Oh no, it's just allergies. It is pollen season after all. After hearing this fab news, Schue runs to tell the glee club. He tells them Rachel's news along with many more wonderful tidbits, like Brittany going on an MIT tour and Emma re-accepting his new proposal. Then he reveals this week's theme: Stevie Wonder-ful. Does that bother anyone else? I get that Stevie is a musical genius, and his songs are iconic, but I m so sick of these olde...
