Boston Legal information

William Shatner birthdayToday marks the 80th birthday of William Shatner. It’s hard to think of any other actor who’s had such a long and varied career on the small screen. In addition to starring as Captain James T. Kirk on Star Trek, one of the medium’s most popular shows, Shatner has starred in seven other shows as well — Star Trek: The Animated Series, Barbary Coast, For the People, T.J. Hooker, Rescue 911, Boston Legal, and currently $#*! My Dad Says.

And, who could forget his memorable guest shots on shows like The Twilight Zone, Dr. Kildare, 77 Sunset Strip, The Defenders (the 1960s original), Mission: Impossible, Columbo, TekWar, 3rd Rock From the Sun, and The Practice?

Though the cast and crews of these shows may attend the award ceremony on September 12th, they sadly won't be working with each other the next morning. Here are the lucky and yet not-so-lucky nominees... According to Jim, Battlestar Galactica, Boston Legal, ER, Everybody Hates Chris, Life on Mars, MADtv, The Mole, My Name Is Earl, Pushing Daisies, Samantha Who?, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

2008 – 2009 Cancelled Shows: ABC Renews 12 TV Series, What About the Rest?

April 24, 2009
According to Jim, Cupid, Samantha Who?The ABC network has announced renewals for a dozen of their current series. It looks like America's Funniest Home Videos, The Bachelor, Brothers & Sisters, Dancing With The Stars, Desperate Housewives, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Grey's Anatomy, Lost, Private Practice, Supernanny, Ugly Betty, and Wife Swap will all be back next season. None come as a big surprise since ABC is still doing pretty well enough in the ratings. The weakest among the renewed series are Wife Swap and Supernanny but they're relegated to Friday nights. Expectations are lower on that night and the shows are cheaper. What about the rest of their shows -- According To Jim, Better Off Ted, Boston Legal, Castle, Cupid, Dirty Sexy Money, Eli Stone, Homeland Security USA, In The Motherhood, Life On Mars, Opportunity Knocks, Pushing Daisies, Samantha Who?, Scrubs, Surviving Suburbia, True Beauty and The Unusuals?

While you're out shopping in stores today, you could see some of the talent from cancelled TV shows. Others may be hard at work on shows like 90210, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Samantha Who?, and Damages. Those keeping busy include William H. Macy (Sports Night), Rob Thomas, Ken Marino and Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars), Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks), Adam Scott (Tell Me You Love Me), Jane Lynch (Help Me Help You), Lizzy Caplan (The Class), Kristin Chenoweth (Pushing Daisies), David E. Kelley (Boston Legal), Matt Lanter (Commander in Chief), Tracy Pollan (Family Ties), Marissa Jaret Winokur (Stacked), Barbara Eden (I Dream of Jeannie), Dean McDermott (Tori & Dean: Inn Love), Rena Sofer (Just Shoot Me!), Connor Trinneer (Star Trek: Enterprise), Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood), Billy Zane (Twin Peaks), Kevin Sorbo (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys), and Wendy Diamond (Greatest American Dog). Remember on Bewitched when Dick York was replaced by Dick Sargent? Well, the same thing's about to happen to another Sam, this time on ABC's Samantha Who? sitcom. Apparently Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood) is so busy working on FX's Damages that he's not available to reprise his role as Christina Applegate's ex-boyfriend, Funk. As a result, they're recasting the role with Billy Zane (Twin Peaks). Geez, don't you think this is messing with poor Samantha's noggin a bit much?

Boston Legal: Did That Have to be the Last Episode?

December 9, 2008
After five seasons, Boston Legal said goodbye last night. As you might expect, the David E. Kelley series went out in its own quirky fashion. Did it really have to end? Boston Legal, a spin-off of The Practice, revolves around the staff of Crane, Poole and Schmidt. Alan Shore (James Spader) is the office's most controversial lawyer who takes on the most outlandish cases. His best friend is Denny Crane (William Shatner), a once-legendary litigator who exhibits outrageous behavior due to the advancement of Alzheimer's. Other partners include Shirley Schmidt (Candice Bergen), Paul Lewiston (Rene Auberjonois), Carl Sack (John Larroquette), and socially-inept Jerry Espensen (Christian Clemenson). Other ongoing characters have been played by Mark Valley, Julie Bowen, Gary Anthony Williams, Tara Summers, Henry Gibson, Constance Zimmer, Monica Potter, Rhona Mitra, Saffron Burrows, Meredith Eaton, Taraji P. Henson, Justin Mentell, Ryan Michelle Bathe, Betty White, and Craig Bierko. The "dramady" debuted on October 3, 2004 on ABC. Spader and Shatner won Emmys for their guest work on The Practice and they and several others went on to win awards for Legal. For its first season, the show averaged 12.5 million viewers. The ratings slowly declined each successive year and last season, Legal averaged 9.8 million. Though that's still a decent audience, ABC announced that season five would be the final one.
