Opportunity Knocks information

Two and a Half Men Ashton KutcherHave CBS and Warner Bros. just been punk’d? Actor and producer Ashton Kutcher has signed a deal to join the cast of Two and a Half Men. The news comes after months of speculation about who would replace Charlie Sheen on the most popular sitcom in primetime television.

Though the casting of Kutcher isn’t as bold a choice as Hugh Grant might have been, he does have impressive credentials. He has experience shooting a multi-camera sitcom since he spent seven seasons as a series regular on FOX’s That 70s Show, from 1998 to 2005. He’s got solid comedic timing and is familiar with the week-to-week schedule.

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?

Opportunity Knocks and Pushing Daisies: ABC TV Shows to Return

April 5, 2009
Two series are coming back to ABC -- one beloved and one essentially ignored. Regardless of how viewers feel about them, neither one are going back into production. The network is just burning off already shot episodes of Pushing Daisies and Opportunity Knocks. What about Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money? Pushing Daisies follows a lovable piemaker (Lee Pace) who can revive the deceased, his childhood sweetheart (Anna Friel), and his private eye partner (Chi McBride). Others in the cast include Ellen Greene, Swoosie Kurtz, Kristin Chenoweth, Field Cate, Sean Lake, Sy Richardson, Stephen Root, and Sammi Hanratty, with narration by Jim Dale. The series ran for two abbreviated seasons. Based on low ratings, ABC opted not to order any additional episodes past the 22nd. Only 19 of them have aired. Opportunity Knocks is a reality game show that brings the competition to a family's front door. The series is hosted by J.D. Roth and produced by Ashton Kutcher, Jason Goldberg, Karey Burke, Todd A. Nelson, and Roth. The series wasn't a hit with viewers and ABC cancelled it after just three installments had aired.
