The future just got a whole lot better-looking. “Friday Night Lights” and “Charlie’s Angels” star Minka Kelly has signed on for J.J. Abrams’ untitled futuristic police pilot, which has received an order from Fox.
Without a doubt, 2011 had a lot of “Can’t unsee them” moments. And some of them were so long, they extended for entire seasons, including the show that tops the list; it hasn’t ended yet, but we all know where it’s going.
Granted, it’s a problem that maybe 1 percent of Americans could ever face: a 30-day deadline to move out of a 56,500-square-foot home after two decades of filling it with “stuff,” as owner Candy Spelling puts it.
The broadcast networks have canceled (or all-but canceled) five shows so far this season, exactly the number pulled from the airwaves by this time a year ago.

“Rules of Engagement” got a “Big Bang” in the ratings and so did CBS Thursday night. Formerly relegated to the viewership desert of Saturday nights where it was intended to air this season, “Rules” premiered in its new Thursday time period — 8:30/7:30c — and drew 11.473 million viewers in the Nielsen overnights.

“The Office” reversed the weekly ratings decline that has plagued it ever since it started its new season on Sept. 22. Last night — Thursday — the NBC comedy had a slight uptick in viewership, which must have come as a relief to the network and the show’s cast and crew because the series had […]
Who needs Derek Jeter when your costars are this hot? Newly single Minka Kelly had a hot makeout scene with her “Charlie’s Angels” costar Rachael Taylor on Oct. 4 in Miami. In August, the 31-year-old actress and Jeter, 37, broke up after three years together. In January’s GQ magazine, Kelly opened up ever so slightly […]
