A housekeeping note

By on Oct 8, 2012 in Announcements | 0 comments

I am now (happily) employed full-time by Wetpaint, a company whose media property, Wetpaint Entertainment (www.wetpaint.com), is “your go-to source for the hottest shows on television — the latest photos, videos, spoilers, gossip, fashion, and recaps.” As you more regular readers may remember, I used to work for the company on a freelance basis, recapping Grey’s Anatomy. But now I’m an assistant editor covering entertainment news, so there’s obvious overlap between this site and Wetpaint. Therefore, I’ll do a lot of my day-to-day blogging there, but I’m still committed to posting more Primetimely-specific posts right here. (And as a disclaimer: This entire blog reflects my thoughts and opinions and not those of Weptaint.) Despite this six-week interlude of late, you hopefully you won’t even notice of change of pace. In fact, you can expect the next post in the next few days! (Hint:...

The Prime Times: Next Season’s Guest Stars Edition

By on Jun 25, 2012 in In Brief | 0 comments

This installment of the Prime Times is all about the cool guest stars we’ll all get to see on our favorite shows… in a few months’ time. Sorry for the blue balls, folks. With the seventh-season premiere a torturous three months away, Showtime has released a teaser-trailerfocusing on the fallout from last season’s “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain with a knife” finale. More details are surfacing about the second season of FX’s creepfest American Horror Story. Now we know that Jessica Lange will play a nun and administrator (presumably in the 1960s-era East Coast insane asylum, which was previously announced as the season’s setting). And filling out the cast are Adam Levine and James Cromwell. ER reunion ho! Maura Tierney will recur on the next season of The Good Wife, sharing the screen once again with Julianna Margulies. According to Deadline, Tierney will play “a...

Prime Cuts: Housewives & Sister Wives

By on Jun 18, 2012 in Journal | 0 comments

…plus impromptu commentary on The Big C, Parks and Recreation, and Mad Men I’ve been blogging for Primetimely for awhile now, and I love it, but I’ll be forthcoming: I’m not always the most regular updater. With a full-time day job to work, dozens of shows to watch, a career in TV writing to which to aspire, a cat to pamper, a roommate with whom to hang out, friends to see, and a fiancé with whom to spend quality time, it’s not always easy to find the time or the energy to dedicate to quality posts! But I think I often wait until I have inspiration for a post, and that means waiting too long. So with this post, I introduce a whole new category of blog update: the stream-of-consciousness-style journal, which I’m (oh-so-adorably) entitling “Prime Cuts.” I’ll try to just ramble and hold forth on the television that I’m watching and hearing about. And in the hope of blogging more often and...

The Prime Times: Shelly the Nymphomaniac Edition

By on Apr 30, 2012 in In Brief | 0 comments

A hot, steaming cup of TV news, ready for you to guzzle: Anderson Cooper has had another one of his famous giggling fits on air, and it’s so unflattering but so adorable. Yes, I call Anderson adorable. Okay? Totes adorbs. Patrick Dempsey channelled his Grey’s Anatomy character’s heroism recently by pulling a Malibu teen from his flipped Mustang, waiting with him until the paramedics arrived, and even calling the teen’s mother to update her on her son’s condition. I’m loving Big Love right now, and I’m especially loving three leading ladies: Jeannie Tripplehorn, Chloë Sevigny, and Ginnifer Goodwin. So it thrills me to no end that Sevigny (who’s name I just had to Google to pronounce) will be a star of the next season of American Horror Story, playing a character named “Shelly the Nymphomaniac” who faces off with Jessica...

Often, a TV show’s 100th episode is viewed as a milestone. Not only because it’s such a rare occurrence among shows in today’s cutthroat market, but because it also makes the show eligible for syndication. (Ka-ching!) We bloggers are less lucky. No one is baking me a cake or popping a bottle of bubbly, and TNT certainly isn’t offering me wads of cash for rerun rights. But hey, this is still my hundredth post, and I’m damn proud of that fact! And in celebration of that fact, here are my ten favorite posts so far. (Not that every post isn’t pure gold…) The Blog Post Where Plot Twists Go to Die for not only its content but also its awesome Dawson pic. “Mad Men” Poster Madly Dissected because somewhere out there, someone is analyzing the poster to the exact same degree, only earnestly. Shit My Boyfriend Says because we all have shit to say about...

The Prime Times: Figure It Out Edition

By on Mar 9, 2012 in In Brief | 0 comments

Here’s all the TV news you need to know (read: a dozen news items you don’t need to know but are fun anyway). A Baltimore man was arrested on a handgun charge recently, and he happens to share the same name as a notorious character on The Wire: Omar Little, Jr. FOX chose not to renew Terra Nova for a second season, but word on the street is that Netflix is interested in picking it up. Keri Russell has joined the FX pilot “The Americans,” as a KGB spy living with an arranged husband in Washington D.C. during the 1980s. Nickelodeon is bringing back 1990s game show Figure It Out, in which a panel of celebrities have to parse out the layperson-guest’s unique talent. Sigourney Weaver is set to play a divorced-First-Lady-turned-Secretary-of-State in a new series on USA entitled Political Animals. A&E is developing a series called Bates Motel, which provides...
