The Simpsons

Kiss & Tell

With Valentine's Day just one short week away, stores are filling up with teetering displays of candy, cards, and silly gifts packaged in obnoxiously pink paper and studded with red velvet bows. Whether you're coupled up or not, the saccharine atmosphere can get a little bit overwhelming, and it sure can be tough to get a dinner reservation. We recommend hiding out in your own personal love nest with four great stories about romance--Simpsons style.

Episodes included are "Natural Born Kissers," in which Homer and Marge spice up their marriage with a little exhibitionism; "Large Marge," in which Marge is accidentally given breast implants; "Three Gays of the Condo," in which Homer unwittingly moves into a flamboyantly gay neighborhood when he feels unwanted at home; and "The Way We ...

Autumn battles Summer on The O.C.

The O.C.,'s Summer Roberts (Rachel Bilson) will have a little competition this fall when Autumn Reeser joins the cast of the hugely popular prime-time teen soap.

Reeser, who's 25, has been acting since she was seven and has made guest appearances on shows such as Grounded for Life, George Lopez, and MTV's Undressed, among others. Her most recent television gig was a recurring role on ABC's Complete Savages, a comedy about a single father, which was pulled from the air earlier this year.

Reeser comes to The O.C. as new-girl-in-school Taylor Townsend, who will lock horns with Summer for control of the Orange County teen social scene. The beloved series' sordid plot is sure to thicken in its third season, which begins on Thursday, September 8, at 8:00pm ET/PT, 7:00pm CT.

Mick Jagger lands Prosperity gig
summerpresstour.jpg

LOS ANGELES--Mick Jagger is a rock star, and he plays one on TV. And it's funny.

The Rolling Stones lead singer is featured as "the mark" in this season's new ABC heist comedy, The Knights of Prosperity. The series stars Donal Logue (Grounded For Life, The Tao of Steve) as Eugene Gurkin, the leader of a bumbling group of criminals attempting to rob Mr. Jagger's New York apartment.

Logue's character gets the idea to rob the singer after seeing a fake behind-the-scenes documentary about the rock legend wherein, among other absurd luxuries, Jagger's young manservant pours him a bath of yogurt.

Prosperity producers Rob Burnett and Jon Beckerman, both Emmy winners for producing The Late Show with David Letterman, spoke Wednesday, along with the entire cast of the series, at the TV Critics ...

Sean Finnerty and his lovely wife, Claudia, became parents right out of high school. Now 32, they struggle to keep their lives (and three children) under control. Claudia is a hostess at a swank restaurant, and Sean works in the subway tunnels. Working 9 to 5 and having three kids to maintain isn't an easy task, but they're doing the best that they can. Oldest daughter Lily, 14, is more than a handful. At that age where she thinks the world revolves around her, Lily devours the majority of the Finnerty's free time. Her little brother, Jimmy, is bookish to say the least, and stays out of trouble -- for the most part. And then there's the baby of the family, Henry, who's just a little off. Hyperactive and mischievous, Henry is usually secondary when it comes to problematic children. Helping Sean and Claudia deal with the brood is Sean's father, Walt, a crotchety man whose idea of a learning experience is teaching the boys how to dig a hole. If he hadn't been a father, he would have been a drill sergeant. Also helping to lighten the load is Sean's younger brother, Eddie, an unemployed stoner who spends his time hanging out with friends and "unknowingly" selling beepers to drug dealers. Over its first season the show evolved a unique take on standard sitcom structure. Each episode begins with a family crisis "explained" in flashbacks from various character's points of view, often overlapping, sometimes contradicting each other as we learn to distinguish what the narrators THINK happened from what we eventually learn REALLY happened. Since the Finnertys are at least nominally practicing Catholics, this usually involves issues of blame, responsibility, and guilt, guilt, guilt. In the third season, Grandpa Walt was phased out of the show (though he may appear in upcoming episodes). Sean and Eddie pooled their money and bought a bar (which Eddie initially intended to torch for the insurance money), which becomes the home away from home for the family. Music plays a big role in this series. Original music was written/performed by Ben Vaughn and Ween. The majority of the titles of the episodes are derived from pop songs. Emmy Nominations: 2001: Outstanding Choreography, Kenny Ortega for the episode "Mrs. Finnerty, You Have A Lovely Daughter" (lost).
