Arrested Development

Season 2

The second season of the hilariously twisted Arrested Development arrives on DVD. This series keeps winning Emmys and losing viewers, but it's one of the smartest comedies on TV these days.

The incest jokes and sexual double entendres keep coming as Michael struggles to keep the Bluth family from losing everything. Papa Bluth is on the run to Mexico after being arrested for building houses for Saddam Hussein; Gob supplants Michael as the president of the company; Buster gives nature a hand; and Tobias dresses up like a British nanny from a town called Blackstool.

Guest stars this season include Ben Stiller as Gob's magician rival, Tony Wonder, and Martin Short turns up as old Uncle Jack.

This three-disc set contains all 18 episodes from season two of this underrated comedy. Extras of the DVD include audio commentary with the whole cast ...

Housemates announced for Surreal Life 6

In a statement yesterday, VH1 revealed the names of the six lucky stars who will participate in the sixth season of hit reality show The Surreal Life.

The series takes the premise of shows like The Real World one step in a weirder direction by selecting a cast of starlets and has-beens rather than unknown college-age kids. The chosen six--described as "pop culture icons"--have already left their dubious thumbprints on the collective unconscious through their efforts in film, music, sports, and television. The Surreal Life chronicles a two-week period in which the participants must leave behind their homes, cell phones, and personal assistants for a crash course in communal living, followed every step of the way by an unrelenting camera crew.

Forced to share living quarters, chores, and meals--not to mention the creative "special challenges" cooked up by producers--the housemates ...

The Emmy Awards take a hint from American Idol

An American Idol-esque competition is part of the plan for Emmy night, when television actors and professional singers will duke it out in a battle of the ballads that is sure to make fans cheer and cringe. The stars will perform theme songs from popular TV shows, and fans will vote for their favorites either online or through text messages. Here's a look at the Emmy Idol contestants:

Veronica Mars star Kristen Bell will be the sole soloist of the evening with her own rendition of the Fame theme, while all other performances will be duets.

Megan Mullally of Will & Grace has been paired with The Apprentice's Donald Trump for the theme song to Green Acres, the city-mouse/country-mouse comedy from the 1960s.

William Shatner, who has released many a solo spoken-word album in his day, joins actual opera singer Frederica von Stade for the theme song ...

Tom Willis
Mother Olivia Jefferson (1975-1977)

The Jeffersons first aired in January of 1975 on CBS as a mid-season replacement. The series was a spinoff of All in the Family in which the Jeffersons were Archie and Edith Bunker's next door neighbors. In 1975, The Jeffersons moved on up when George found success in a dry cleaning business. This allowed him and his wife, Louise and their son Lionel to "move on up" into a spacious high rise apartment. At the beginning of the series, Lionel was attending college and graduated in February 1976. He married Jenny Willis in December of the same year and they had a daughter in 1979, Jessica Jefferson. Other members of the cast include, Tom and Helen Willis were upstairs neighbors and also Jenny's parents. Florence Johnston was the Jefferson's sassy maid who was hired as a part-time maid in the first episode but in October 1976 moved in and became a full-time maid. Mother Jefferson was George's fiesty mother who forever put Louise down but deep down loved her. Harry Bentley was the handsome British, next door neighbor. Besides being quite eccentric and forever borrowing things from the Jeffersons, Bentley worked as a translator at the United Nations. In 1981, Bentley was written out as being transferred to Russia, but returned in 1983. Ralph was the building doorman who forever begged for tips from George and the other tennents in the building. Tom and Helen Willis were controversial characters since they were most likely TV's first interracial couple. Helen was Louise's best friend and they ran a Help Center which opened in 1977. As for Tom and George, it took the entire run of the series to develop their love/hate friendship. The series was unceremoniously pulled from the air with no warning, so the cast, bitter that they never got to shoot an appropriate finale episode, later reunited for a theatrical stage play. Sherman and Isabel also reprised their roles as George and Louise Jefferson on a couple episodes of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in the mid-90's and have most recently reprised their roles on Denny's commercials.

To a deluxe apartment in the sky. Movin on up, to the east side. We finally got a piece of the pie. Fish don't fry in the kitchen; Beans don't burn on the grill. Took a whole lotta tryin', just to get up that hill. Now we're up in the big leagues, gettin' our turn at bat. As long as we live, it's you and me baby, and there ain't nothin' wrong with that. Well we're movin on up, to the east side. To a deluxe apartment in the sky. Movin on up, to the east side. We finally got a piece of the pie.
