Tonight on the USA Network, the new series Fairly Legal debuts at 10/9C. While most of the attention for this new show has been placed squarely on the shoulders of lead actress Sarah Shahi (formerly of the short-lived series Life), I know once viewers get a look at her co-star, […]

If you don’t partake of Christmas movies, you’re going to need to break out your DVD sets or clear your DVR, because they’re all over cable TV this month. The networks don’t hit it as hard—you can still catch your Snoopy and Shrek—but they’ve handed the movies-of-the-week heavy lifting off […]
