Blind Item #5

This A- list mostly television actress who has been on my television every day in a new commercial was asked by a fellow actress on the same network for some help with her own show that has been struggling. Our A lister has of course she would be happy to help and then does absolutely nothing. The A lister knows the show is going down and doesn't want to be associated with it.

Hannigan from 'How I met your mother" don't know the failing show.

Kristin said...

Mindy kaling has someone who just joined the show

Kristin said...

I read that wrong. But I'll stick with mindy and Zooey.

derek harvey said...

ALOT of crap new shows this season I have noticed. I watched the Rebel Wilson and Malin Ackerman ones and both are insultingly horrible. People bitched that there were "too many reality shows" and now network television gives us this?!! I say bring back flavour of love!

Christopher Cruz said...

Meanwhile awesome shows like GCB and Worst Week don't get past season one. Boo-urns!!!

Rach Around said...

Christopher : was worst week a remake of the British show? That was hilarious.

..the hell?
Faux Enty #19345 It's common sense that you don't dive off a perfectly running ship onto a barely running survivor boat.
You SURE you are an entertainment lawyer? I would think that would be common sense 101.

texas rose said...

I'm assuming from this blind that she is asking for a guest appearance from the A- actress on the failing show .

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

I am just glad that American Horror Story starts tomorrow. Right now on TV there isn't much comedy shows I'm feeling. I am a sucker for parks and recs

Rach Around said...

Orvilla: I'm with you! Can't wait for the new season. Love the Lange.

Bacon Ranch said...

Would you do it TR? I wouldn't. If the writing is already on the wall,I would do my best to help my buddy get another gig.

Rach Around said...

Ja'mie has a new show starting in October!

texas rose said...

I'm reading it as if the A- actress is already on a show (it says on same network) and assuming a successful show (since she is A-)- I don't think a guest appearance on a another show on same network is going to hurt the A- actress.

skimpymist said...

Booo the rebel wilson show is not crap. The problem is everyoone has such high expectations for brand new shows that the new shows are barely given a chance. I thought it was very funny and will continue to be. Its like ugly betty.

texas rose said...

Esp. if no one is watching the failing show.

Jonathan Andrew Sheen said...

I don't think anybody here read the post.

"...who has been on my television every day in a new commercial"

Who's on a new commercial every time you turn around? The only actress I can think of who fits that is Kaley Cuoco. A glance at her IMDB entry shows at least 5 movies in the last few years, so "Mostly Television" fits, and given what a monster hit The Big Bang Theory is, that seems to qualify her for A- list.

I agree that doing a guest shot on a failing show wouldn't do her any harm.

Rach Around said...

Haven't seen Rebel's show yet, but heard another of our national treasures, Jacki Weaver will be/is on the show.

Dasha said...

Sofia Vergara is in a lot of commercials, too.

sandybrook said...

People bitch there are too many reality shows on Tv yet when a real show cones on they cant be bothered so it gets cancelled and replaced by--wait for it--a reality show :(

Rach Around said...

"Reality" shows are as authentic as a Kardashian's plastic face and boobs (espesh Bruce Jenner)

NomNom83 said...

What kind of help are we talking about here? A guest role? Industry networking to get better writers? Putting in a good word to the head of the network?

Look, if your show really sucks, then I, as a viewer, will not hold it against this other actress for being all, "Sure, I'll help. Uh, let me check my calendar first. Don't call me, I'll call you."

Rach Around said...

Help! I need somebody. Help! Not just anybody. Help! You know I need someone. Help!

Tara said...

Kaley or Sofia. The Mindy Project has a guest star every week now - James Franco, Anders Holm, Adam Pally, tonight has Glenn Howerton. New Girl is doing just fine, Brooklyn Nine Nine doesn't have a high-profile actress. Super Fun Night was awful in my opinion, but Trophy Wife is getting good reviews and if Malin needed a guest star, they could pull anyone from Children'[s Hospital or Brad could pull someone from the West Wing.

Sleepy Hollow was already renewed and is really really popular right now. Who has worked with Kaley or Sofia before? They have to know each other somehow I'm assuming.

V said...

Rach, Ja'mie has a new show?! Tell me more!!! SSH is one of my all-time faves.

Tara said...

Oh, shit! Wait! Anna Faris! I saw her tweet something almost begging people to watch Mom. Maybe she was the actress with the struggling show.

Rach Around said...

V: there's some clips on YouTube and I. Can't. Wait! She's learning to drive, being a bitch and flipping her hair a lot. Love it! A show purely dedicated to Miss J.

V said...

Snap! Best news of the day! So excited.

V said...

"Cycle of Skankiness" - brilliant!

Renoblondee said...

I immediately thought Kaley w the commercials.

Tina Mallette said...

The decent new shows so far that I have seen Ray Donovoan HBO, but only 8 episodes already done first run, and The Blacklist with James Spader, very good esp for network TV.

Jennabean said...

I think you got it it's on cbs I watched last night , never getting that time back. With kaley as the A+

Becca Parker said...

So you were one of the six people that watched GCB!
The reason it flopped was simple.
It was too Christian for those who aren't & not enough for those who are.
Plus the writing, acting & directing were all horrible.
Did I leave anything out?

Iceberg said...

GCB was awesome. So pissed it got canceled.

FS said...

Another vote for GCB, it was a good show and should have been given a chance to grow, Seinfeld style. It was just in that weird place between drama and comedy and I don't think people realized it was supposed to be a little bit satirical. The women in the cast were awesome.

Rach Around said...

What's GCB?

Rach Around said...

V: I only hope Mr G makes a cameo.
I've met Chris Lilley and he's REALLY serious and dour with a hip hop fixation. So like Jonah, but without the charm and violent father.

Veech said...

Tara- Adam Pally has joined the cast. He's not just a guest star with a story arc.

B. Profane said...

Kaley Cuoco-Anna Faris. The connection is that both are on Chuck Lorre shows.

VargasGirl said...

This was my guess and the person asking is Anna Ferris

She plays her mum, Rach.

Brave 1 said...

Gcb was brilliant.

Brave 1 said...

Gcb was brilliant.

Iceberg said...

Rach, here's the story on GCB.

Cee Kay said...

Can I just ask everybody to try watching We Are Men, just once, please? (Any Neilsen families out there?) It's so much better than the promos suggest, and it's dying fast!

V said...

Fascinating Rach, and not what I would expect, though it totally makes sense.

Blondie! said...

Just wanted to say I loved, loved gcb! The shark, over the top silliness...all of it. Was super pissed it was cancelled.

TalksTooMuch said...

I loved GCB! So bummed when they cancelled it. I would watch anything with Kristin Chenoweth.

Blondie! said...

No, no, they didn't have sharks, they had shark. Ack!

Blondie! said...

gawdamn autocorrect s n a r k

warmislandsun said...

I really liked GCB, too. It was campy and fun. I also liked The New Normal for the same reasons.

Blondie! said...

It seems that any show I like, and it's always the quirky ones: Go On, Dead Like Me, The New Normal and of course, GCB, the cancel them. It's disheartening that the intelligently written shows usually (exceptions Community, Big Bang theory) are cancelled. Sigh.

Sherry said...

Oh thanks V and Rach. Thanks to you I wasnt a half hour today watching Ja'mie. Now I'm looking for some epi that has hair flipping whilst driving.

ms snarky said...

co-sign with liking GCB. Was disappointed when it cancelled.
