First Look:Fox's Back to You [24 Jun 2007|09:07pm]

[ mood | excited ]

First look: Fox's 'Back to You'

I made a big miscalculation. I thought taking a week off after May sweeps would give me a chance to get away and back again before the craziness of pre-press tour pilot watching would begin. Instead, I ended up falling behind on all the June cable series premieres, which set me back in watching the fall pilots.

But I've finally gotten started and one of the first pilots I was eager to see was Fox's sitcom "Back to You," starring Kelsey Grammer ("Frasier") and Patricia Heaton ("Everybody Loves Raymond") as reunited Pittsburgh news anchors. So what did I think? Well, I could tell you but Fox would kill me. They send out the pilots saying, "For informational purposes only, not for review." How come? In some cases, shows will undergo major tinkering before their fall premieres and revised pilots will be sent for review later. In other cases, the networks just want to delay negative buzz from getting out as long as possible. I don't think either scenario applies to "Back to You." Still, I can't review the show as a sitcom, but I feel safe discussing its Pittsburgh-ness and mocking of TV news conventions.

It gets many of the TV news conventions accurate, though they're not always particular to Pittsburgh. The station has a Latina weathercaster, and though we certainly have had our share of attractive women offering weather forecasts, they're predominantly white and not nearly as sassy.

But the show does tap into Pittsburgh's ethnic roots by naming a reporter Gary Crezyzewski, who is sent to report from in front of the Allegheny County Courthouse. At night. During a downpour. (Score! Direct hit to local news!)

But KDKA's Ken Rice, who has acted as an unofficial adviser to executive producer Steve Levitan, a college buddy, needs to get his hands on future scripts so he can prevent this news tease, which is unlikely to ever come to pass in Pittsburgh: "Good news homeowners: Your property taxes may be going down!" Maybe it's an attempt to get an extra laugh out of Pittsburgh viewers who know that notion is a joke?

Last notes: The station in the show is WURG, Channel 9, and it must be a Fox, CW or independent station because its newscasts air at 6 and 10 p.m. The newsroom has the names of Pittsburgh communities -- Monroeville, Somerset, etc. -- emblazoned on the walls.

I'll be writing more about "Back to You" as the show's fall premiere approaches, including a review. (Psst, between you and me, I mostly liked it. Don't tell Fox!).

Good Luck Patty! [13 Apr 2007|10:37pm]

Good to luck to Patty as she starts filming her new show "Back to You". Make us proud! (Which we know you will :D)


Here's a picture of Patty that I've never seen. I've seen her at this event, but not this specific picture, not sure if you guys have either.

Poor girl, didn't even have time to get a smile before those goons started flashing their cameras in her face. But I suppose if it wasn't for those goons, the paparazzi, we wouldn't have pictures of her at all. :P

Favorite ELR Scenes [03 Apr 2007|05:45am]

Our favorite gal was awesome in Everybody Loves Raymond. She was funny, witty, and brightened the screen with her performances.

So my question is, what are some of your favorite scene's in ELR of Patty's?

A few of mine are:

1. In "The Will" when Ray is talking about the ball coming at him, but hitting the chocolate cake instead and Debra says "And then it said chocolate cake!".

2. She's great through the entire episode of "Bad Moon Rising". She plays having PMS very well. :P

3. At the end of "Lateness" when Debra tells Ray to go upstairs and she waits down in the living room watching TV.

4. The series finale was really good and how Debra was so loving to Ray. It was good to see them that way.

So, those are a few of mine. How bout ya'lls?
