Mandy Moore lands ABC comedy

In case you’ve been worried about Mandy Moore’s career, fret no longer! The former teen pop star has scored her own TV show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Moore, 27, hasn’t exactly been unemployed as of late, but she hasn't been especially visible. The pop star voiced Rapunzel in animated feature “Tangled” last year, and has recently completed a series of guest appearances on ABC drama “Grey's Anatomy.”

It may be thanks to her “Grey’s” stint that Mandy landed upcoming ABC series “Us and Them.”

Will Smith now part owner of the 76ers

Rapper, movie star and all-around A-lister Will Smith can add basketball team owner to his resume, because Will and wife Jada Pinkett Smith now own minority stakes in the Philadelphia 76ers.

Will, 43, and Jada, 40, joined a group of investors led by multibillionaire Joshua Harris to buy the NBA team from Comcast-Spectacor, according to CSN Philly.

At a press conference Tuesday morning, Harris announced the new ownership via press release: "It is an honor to become part of this storied franchise. We have a lot of work to do, but we have a rich history, a strong foundation and a bright future.”

'Man Up!': So, real men don't use pomegranate body wash?

'Man Up!': So, real men don't use pomegranate body wash?

On Tuesday night, ABC continued its curious examination of gender norms with another sitcom bemoaning the apparent dearth of "real" men.

Up until this fall TV season, I had no idea that I was living amongst a bunch of "pantywaists," but someone out there in comedy development seems to find that to be true.

If Tim Allen's ranting about being the last rough-and-tumble "Man Standing," he's doing it for the three male stars of "Man Up!": Husband and father Will (Mather Zickel), his brother-in-law Kenny (Dan Fogler) and their friend Craig (Christopher Moynihan), all of whom represent the breed of video-game playing modern guys that Allen's character can't stand.

'Parenthood': Tales from The Luncheonette

Last week we left off with Sarah running out in the middle of the night to find a beaten and bloodied Seth in an alley. So did we find her visiting him at the hospital this week? Or at his place? No, because this is No Boundaries Sarah. She brought him home, to her place. On her father's property.

This is such a bad idea. It seems like he’s trying to put the moves on her while she’s cleaning him up. Sarah wises up for a second, though, telling him he can’t see the kids anymore if he doesn't go to rehab.

But it's her relationship with Mr. Cyr that's going to need some rehab if she keeps it up. He finds Seth’s discarded cigarettes in Sarah’s sofa bed.
