Recap: The newbies forge new alliances on 'Big Brother'

The veterans are dominant -- but for how long?
I thought the veterans might be sunk after Evel Dick left the show (not only did they lose a great strategist, they were even further down in numbers), but go figure – a few of the newbies are bending to their will. With Jordan as HOH, this should be a cakewalk. At least until Big Brother throws another twist into the game. The problem is, we will need another twist unless we just want to watch the newbies get picked off like so many ticks off a dog’s back.

Take Me To The Pilots '11: ABC's 'Last Man Standing'

Tim Allen returns to TV with a tired 'Woe is man' sitcom

[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots.]

Show: "Last Man Standing," ABC
The Pitch: Tim Allen is The Last Real American Man.
Quick Response: Well, it's better than "Hank." That was my key source of pleasure coming out of "Last Man Standing." The premises are so similar you'd have thought/hoped that somebody at ABC would have the sense to steer clear, but this is a new administration at ABC and they bring their own sense of hubris. So once again we have well-respected veteran of comedy hits returning to TV to play a family man struggling with a world he doesn't understand, specifically struggling with understanding the roles played by men and women in This Crazy Modern World of Ours. "Hank" was misguided because not only was it 100 percent unfunny, but the main character was actively detestable. Tim Allen is smarter than that. His "Last Man Standing" character isn't hatable, he's just confused by so many things in the world around him. He doesn't get soccer. He doesn't get fantasy sports. He doesn't know what "Glee" is. He doesn't get why teenage girls dress like harlots or why people spend so much darned time on the Internet. He hunts! He fishes! And he wants everybody around him to understand that things used to be better back when men were men and women were women. And he's got an attractive, long-suffering wife (Nancy Travis) who stands around with her hands on her hips giving her hubby "Oh, you!" eyes, because she's the wife in a multi-camera sitcom. The best thing Allen does is keep you from hating his character entirely. The best thing Travis does is keep you from pitying her character. Neither stands out as "good," but I absolutely respect the effort they had to put into those minor victories. The supporting cast is populated by people who deserve better, particularly Hector Elizondo and Kaitlyn Dever, who should have gotten an Emmy for "Justified" and instead gets to play the Ariel Winter (from "Modern Family") daughter on a much worse show. Every joke is telegraphed. Every punchline is predictable. This is the sort of comedy where the father says to his kids "Whoever said life was supposed to be fair?" and says it with utter earnestness. But I guess I'd compliment "Last Man Standing" as being broad, predictable, lazy and unamusing but not grating and shameful. And yes, ABC can take that as a pull-quote.
Desire To Watch Again: A cursory second viewing is likely. A third viewing is doubtful.

Alan Rickman may be 'Harry Potter's' best shot at Oscar

Best Picture nod will be tougher

With "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Pt. 2" landing impressive reviews and making a killing at the box office, Hollywood is quickly moving on to discussing the film's Oscar prospects.  Yes, it's never too soon.

Critically, "Deathly Hallows, Pt. 2" earned almost universally positive (some might use the term "rave") reviews with an 87 grade on Metacritic  and a 97% approval on Rotten Tomatoes (the highest scores among wide releases this year).  The only "Harry Potter" film to come anywhere near that level of acclaim was Alfonso Cuaron's "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" in 2004.  Taking into account the film's consistently laudy box office grosses across eight films, many would suggest that "Deathly Hallows, Pt. 2" could find itself the recipient of a best picture nomination as recognition for the entire series.  Of course that was before the Academy decided to implement the 5% rule this spring.

Kat Dennings/Beth Behrs pilot improves after a weak first impression

[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots.]

Show: "2 Broke Girls," CBS
The Pitch: A Manhattan-based "Laverne & Shirley" for the 21st Century?
Quick Response: I went through a weird roller-coaster on "2 Broke Girls," all within 22 minutes. I hated the way all of the main characters were introduced, so the first five or 10 minutes were excruciating. Kat Dennings' Max is too stereotypically brassy and sassy and every joke seems to involve her breasts. Beth Behrs' Caroline is too stereotypically blonde and bubble-brained. I could find no way to work with the fairly racist portrayal of the owner of the diner where they work and the sleazy Russian chef and wise old black doorman were really more than I could handle. I found myself getting increasingly pissed off about CBS' claims that this was the highest testing comedy pilot in network history and what that meant about both the development and testing process. Then? "2 Broke Girls" got better. Past the "Let's introduce our characters in the broadest way possible" cliches of the opening, Caroline and Max both became much more appealing. I'm strongly predisposed to liking Kat Dennings and her expertly deadpan sensibilities are put to far better use as the pilot goes along. There's absolutely no reason why this show shouldn't be a huge launching pad for her. I didn't know Beth Behrs before and none of her initial choices were all that interesting, but Whitney Cummings' script eventually decides that it wants to disprove all of our expectations about the character. Granted that this desire undermines the performance decisions in those opening scenes, but it works to Behrs' favor to have Caroline as more than just a stupid Paris Hilton clone. By the end, when the show's ongoing conceit is finally introduced -- these two very different women set a business goal together and episodes will build towards that goal -- what "2 Broke Girls" was doing was finally rather charming. For this reason, I'm really hoping to get a second "2 Broke Girls" episode to watch before reviewing. If the second half is a reflection of the show's sensibility, this could be a decent little show, but I still need assurances that the first half was just clumsy foundation-laying. A side concern, and one you'd think would be bigger, is that I didn't laugh out loud a single time at "2 Broke Girls." When I was enjoying the show, I was smiling and even taking pleasure in some of the writing, but I wasn't laughing. [This is similar to the problem I had with the vaguely similar "Apartment 23," though I liked the totality of the ABC comedy somewhat more.] I wonder how much of my not-laughing came from the icky taste left in my mouth by the beginning, where the punchlines rely far too heavily on tone-deaf raunch, rather than writing quality and the appeal of its leading ladies. We'll see. We'll also see if the ethnic/racial caricatures in their primary place of employment either become more nuanced or get pushed away entirely. I'd hope for the former, but root for the latter.
Desire To Watch Again: I'll definitely watch a few more episodes, but the fate -- for me at least -- of "2 Broke Girls" may hinge on what happens with "How I Met Your Mother" this season. If "HIMYM" can't pull out of its tailspin and I can convince myself to drop a show I haven't really enjoyed for years, "2 Broke Girls" may be an unintended victim. Or maybe "2 Broke Girls" will become awesome and I'll stick with "HIMYM" just to complete the hour? Anything could happen.

 The cover of Blake Shelton's 'Red River Blue'

Blake Shelton's 'Red River Blue' likely flows to No. 1 on Billboard 200 next week

Four other sets debut in the top 10

If there were any doubt that appearing as a mentor on “The Voice” was a good career move for Blake Shelton, he gets the answer—a resounding yes— on next week’s Billboard 200 as “Red River Blue” comes in at No. 1.

The title looks like it will sell up to 115,000, handily surpassing Incubus’s new set, “If Not Now, When,” which will come in at No. 2 with approximately 90,000 units sold.

Other debuts in the top 10 will be Chris Young, whose “Neon” looks good to light up at No. 4, Colbie Caillat’s “All Of You” (read review here), which is in a hot race with Beyonce’s “4” for the No. 5 spot, Theory of a Deadman’s “The Truth Is” and Sublime with Rome’s “Yours Truly,” which are in a dead heat for the No. 9 and No. 10.

Adele’s “21” hangs around at No. 3,  while this week’s No. 1, Beyonce’s “4,” as we mentioned, will drop to either No. 5 or 6. Jason Aldean’s “My Kinda Party” looks good for No. 7, while Selena Gomez & The Scene’s “When The Sun Goes Down” will likely land around No. 8.

TV Review: PBS' 'Zen'

Gorgeous Italian locations upstage the drama in this ongoing mystery
Even if I could afford to take a trip to Rome this summer, I probably couldn't spare the time, what with an unprecedented number of new TV shows premiering across broadcast and cable dials through months which once used to be quite fallow. 
 
Kudos to PBS, I supposed, for solving one problem while compounding another. 
 
"Zen," which premieres this Sunday (July 17), may have added a few hours of work to my weekend, but with its rather magnificent use of locations in and around Rome, it took the place of of a quick getaway to Italy. [Please, though, don't ask me what kind of vacation to Italy lasts only three hours, doesn't include a single strand of homemade pasta and forces me to take notes the entire time.]
 
Based on the novel series by Michael Dibdin, "Zen" unfolds in three mysteries airing over the next three Sundays and is it any good? Well, as whodunnit? It's not really all that involving. But as a low-cost getaway to Europe? It serves its purpose admirably. Temper your expectations accordingly and you'll find some value in "Zen," even if the thrills are lacking.

Will Arnett, Christina Applegate and Maya Rudolph shine

[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots.]

Show: "Up All Night," NBC
The Pitch: When you have Will Arnett, Christina Applegate and Maya Rudolph, plus Lorne Michaels producing, you don't really need a pitch.
Quick Response: I don't have children, so I haven't been around an infant on a regular basis since my younger brother was born. But watching the Emily Spivey-scripted pilot for NBC's "Up All Night," I still got the feeling that I was in the hands of somebody who had a very clear sense of the trials and tribulations of first-time parenthood. I didn't laugh at "Up All Night" very often -- my only laughs came at Maya Rudolph -- but every second felt plausible and rang true. To my mind, that's a very good start for a series. If you have authenticity and a cast like this, it'll go far. Arnett is shockingly schtick-free here, without even a hint of Gob Bluth or Devon Banks from "30 Rock" or Steven McRunningWilde from his short-lived FOX dud. It's a wonderful change -- Arnett's usually Arnett-esque even in interviews -- and I felt like I was watching a real human here, rather than a character on a sitcom. I'm certain Applegate can be funnier than this -- I always thought she was splendid on the otherwise uneven "Samantha Who?" -- but she's still likable. And Rudolph remains one of those performers whose talents have barely begun to be tapped, but she has some line-readings here that are unique and send the material soaring. Because the premise is so basic -- first-time parents are shocked to realize that having a baby changes your life -- I have no worries about sustainability with this one. The pilot is loose-to-barely plotted and the single-camera aesthetic only enhances the relaxed formlessness. Again, that aids sustainability. The big litmus test for "Up All Night" has nothing to do with me, though. Will actual parents think that the things I assumed were authentic were totally bogus? Or will it prove too authentic and hit too close to home without being funny? Or will NBC actually successfully tap into a massive audience here and find a rare hit? 
Desire To Watch Again: I'll watch "Up All Night" again. Definitely. I may, however, watch "Up All Night" on OnDemand, since it's paired with a pilot I detested and I'll almost certainly have to dedicate the hour's DVR time to several other shows.

<p>&quot;Breaking Bad&quot;&nbsp;co-star Betsy Brandt.</p>

"Breaking Bad" co-star Betsy Brandt.

Interview: 'Breaking Bad' co-star Betsy Brandt

It's not easy being Hank's wife

And now we come to the last of the three "Breaking Badinterviews I successfully(*) recorded on a trip to Albuquerque a couple of months ago. (Previously, I spoke with Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, and also posted my review of the new season and photos from a tour of the set.)

(*) Anna Gunn and I had a good conversation about Walt and Skyler's marriage, but technology was not my friend with that one, alas.

Our final subject: Betsy Brandt, whose Marie sometimes can get lost in the shuffle of a very testosterone-fueled show, but who becomes more prominent this season as Marie tries to deal with Hank's attitude post-shooting. We spoke about the evolution of Marie from the selfish klepto of season 1 to who she is now, about Brandt's off-camera friendship with Dean Norris, Marie's relationship with brother-in-law Walt, and more.

As with the previous video interviews, I apologize for the camerawork, and suggest that if it bothers you, just listen and open up a new browser to look at animated "Parks and Recreation" gifs.

Take Me To The Pilots '11: ABC's 'Revenge'

This 'Count of Monte Cristo Lite' is either trash or trashy fun

[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots.]

Show: "Revenge," ABC
The Pitch:"It's a reverse-gendered 'Count of Monte Cristo' *by* people who have never read 'Count of Monte Cristo' and *for* people who have never read 'Count of Monte Cristo.'"
Quick Response: For years, I've always thought that it was mind-boggling that nobody had made a high school version of of "Count of Monte Cristo." The concept seemed like such a no-brainer. Well, now ABC has *kinda* done a high school version, only the main characters are pretending to be in their 20s, even if they look indistinguishable from the current cast of "90210." No matter how old the characters are supposed to be, "Revenge" is a trashy teen soap set in the Hamptons, an effort far better suited for The CW than ABC and not especially well suited for airing in the fall and winter months where it's going to be stuck. And even though referencing "Monte Cristo" is unavoidable, it hasn't even scraped the skin of Dumas, so just as ABC's press material ignores any possible literary root, viewers would be well advised to do the same (easier done from some than others). A few people loved "Swingtown," but my feeling is that Mike Kelley has a tendency to embrace trashiness and he's found a willing co-conspirator in "Salt" and "Patriot Games" director Phillip Noyce, who's gleefully slumming on the pilot, practically parodying the Aussie thrillers (like "Dead Calm") on which he cut his teeth. Wacky camera angle! Corny musical sting! Vampy starlet casting an all-too-knowing scowl! Or maybe it isn't parody? Maybe sometimes you hire Phillip Noyce and you get the director of "The Quiet American" and "Rabbit-Proof Fence" and even Showtime's "Brotherhood" and sometimes you get the director of "Sliver." Here? "Sliver." I've always liked Emily Van Camp, but I wouldn't have guessed her capable of playing a vengeful badass and the pilot didn't sway me, especially a flashback sequence towards the end that had me laughing out loud. She's cute and winsome and her character knows and repeats a lot of quotes about revenge, but Blair Waldorf would tear her to shreds. None of the other young actors even vaguely register, other than the weirdness of seeing Connor Paolo (speaking of "Gossip Girl") fumbling through an attempt to play blue-collar. On the "older" side of the equation, Madeleine Stowe and Henry Czerny are in a different, more grown-up show, not that Czerny has ever been afraid to ham it up. Like a dumber "Damages," "Revenge" opens on a murder and flashes back to the set-up months earlier, but I hope the producers have a one-season resolution in mind.
Desire To Watch Again: There's nothing about "Revenge" that I would categorize as "good," other than the reasonably high production values, but this is still the sort of cheesy series I could see watching for a little while. As potential guilty pleasures go, this is still far above The CW's somewhat similarly tawdry, tacky "Ringer."

Music Power Rankings: Adele, Rihanna and Chris Brown make the list

So do Spotify and Pandora

1) Spotify (not ranked): The ad-supported streaming service (or users can choose two premium, ad-free tiers) finally arrives stateside and it brings 15 million tracks with it. We doubt Steve Jobs has lost one minute’s sleep over this.

2) Adele (not ranked): Another week, another record or two: “Rolling in the Deep” becomes the biggest crossover hit in the last 25 years and “21” surpasses Eminem’s “Recovery” as the top-selling digital album since Nielsen SoundScan started keeping track.

3) Rihanna (not ranked): She overtakes Lady Gaga as the female artist with the most “friends” on Facebook, but the little monsters rally. As of this writing, LG is less than 50,000 behind.  We expect her fans will work their fingers down to the nubs to get her back into prime position.

4) Lyor Cohen (not ranked):
The Warner Music Group chief of recorded music is expected to get the big bump up to the Chairman/CEO spot, according to the rumor mill, following WMG’s sale to Len Blavatnik by current CEO/chairman Edgar Bronfman and his partners.

5) Chris Brown (not ranked): He draws a record-breaking crowd of more than 18,000 for his Today” show appearance on Friday. Following that and his big wins at the BET Awards, it’s clear that it’s okay to beat a woman and that the public will not only forgive you, but exalt you a few years later. (I would just like to compare this to Leann Rimes, who had an affair with a man she’s now married to, and seems to not be able to come back no matter what and continues to be condemned...just as long as we’ve got our priorities straight).

6) Clear Channel (not ranked):
The radio giant takes huge measures to increase awareness for I Heart Radio, its web offering, by announcing a two-day festival, Sept. 23-24, featuring Lady Gaga, Coldplay, The Black Eyed Peas (God, when does that hiatus begin?) Nicki Minaj, Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood and many more. Anyone want to still pretend that radio isn’t still king? Or at least prince?

7) Pandora (not ranked): The service that Clear Channel is taking on head to head with I Heart Radio’s upcoming ability for listeners to create their own station streams, hits 100 million users. That’s a pretty good head start.

8) Jennifer Lopez (not ranked): She likely says yes to “American Idol” for another year for at least $12 million, but no to Marc Anthony as the pair announce their split. I did not see that one coming.

9) Mathew Knowles (not ranked): Did Live Nation set him up by telling his daughter Beyonce that he was allegedly taking money from her? He sues and Live Nation lawyers up with a very big name. Blood may be thicker than water, but money is thicker than blood.

10) Rob Grill (not ranked): Lead singer of the Grassroots dies from complications of a fall. He will live on forever via such perfect pop tunes as “Midnight Confessions” and “Temptation Eyes.”
