'Blossom' cast to reunite on Fox show

Mayim Bialik

The cast of the hit 90's show “Blossom” will be together once again on Fox's comedy series, “ 'Til Death,” according to Fancast.com.

The half-hour show, starring Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher, will feature “Blossom” stars Mayim Bialik (Blossom), Jenna Von Oy (Six), and Michael Stoyanov (who played Blossom’s oldest brother, Anthony) in a group therapy session.

Joey Lawrence, who played Blossom's lovable if not perpetually ditzy brother, wasn't available. He'll have to be replaced by a “fake Joey," and we can only hope fake Joey gets the “Whoa!” right.

'Wire,' 'Treme' writer David Mills dies

David Mills, a writer and producer for some of the best TV shows of the past two decades - including "Homicide," "Picket Fences," "ER" and "The Wire" - has died, CNN has confirmed through HBO.

Mills reportedly died of a brain aneurysm Tuesday in New Orleans, where he was a writer and co-producer of the new HBO series "Treme." The show is scheduled for its premiere April 11. (HBO, like CNN, is a unit of Time Warner.)

"HBO is deeply saddened by the sudden loss of our dear friend and colleague David Mills," the network said in a statement to CNN and HLN. "He was a gracious and humble man, and will be sorely missed by those who knew and loved him, as well as those who were aware of his immense talent."

(CNN) - Rapper LL Cool J appears to be upset with Sarah Palin and Fox News for using footage of a 2008 interview in its promotion for the former Alaska governor's upcoming television special.

"Fox lifted an old interview I gave in 2008 to someone else & are misrepresenting to the public in order to promote Sarah Palins Show. WOW," the musician Tweeted on Tuesday night.

A promotion for the show - called "Real American Stories: Hosted by Sarah Palin" - features an announcer saying, "They're famous faces. Now hear the real story behind their incredible lives." In addition to LL Cool J, country music star Toby Keith and former General Electric CEO Jack Welch are pictured.

UPDATE: According to the Web site TVNewser, Fox has agreed to cut LL Cool J from the promo.

TV Recap: Disappointment on 'Parenthood'

There was a lot of disappointment running through this episode of "Parenthood." Parents disappointed in kids, sisters disappointed in brothers. It was painful to see some of it, but I wasn't disappointed in the episode. I especially liked that they skipped the huge heart-warming family gathering at the end of the show.

Sarah is at school for parent night. A parent notices her "Braverman" name tag, and starts going on and on about Haddie. When she tells him Haddie's her niece and Amber is her daughter, there's a moment of awkward "oh you're HER mother" silence.

Sarah runs out for nicotine gum and runs into Amber's English teacher (played by the late John Ritter's son, Jason). He says Amber is one of his best students, pleasantly surprising Sarah. Imagine her surprise when she discovers the paper the teacher raved about was actually her paper from high school. She was going to rat out her own daughter, but Mr. Sears raved so much about Amber and the paper, she changes her mind. FULL POST

Shannen Doherty kicked off 'Dancing'

It’s over for Shannen Doherty on “Dancing With the Stars.” The actress was the first celebrity contestant to be eliminated from the hit show this season after performing just two dances.

But last night’s episode was also a close call for actress Pamela Anderson, who was in “the bottom two” - one of the lowest-scoring stars when the judges’ scores and viewer votes were combined. (Anderson spent the rest of the show in the dreaded red spotlight and didn’t look particularly happy about it.)

Buzz Aldrin, on the other hand, was the first to find out he was safe to the delight and surprise of the studio audience. Since the 80-year-old former astronaut was one of the contestants thought to be in danger of being eliminated, the announcement set up a tense hour for reality TV star Kate Gosselin who seemed nervous after her two low-scoring performances.
