Tim Daly tweets that he's been let go from 'Private Practice'

Tim Daly
Tim Daly has been with "Private Practice" from the "Grey's Anatomy" spinoff's first days, but though the series has been picked up for a sixth season, Daly won't be there. According to the actor, he's been given his walking papers.

On his Twitter feed on Tuesday, Daly broke the news to fans: "Wonderful fans of PPP. Shonda informed my agent today that Pete wont be returning for season 6. It was a great 5 yrs. R.I.P. Pete Wilder."

A spokeswoman for ABC said the network does not comment on contracts.

The fifth-season finale of "Private Practice" saw Daly's character avoiding a prison sentence for the actions he took with a patient and reconciling with his wife. But the character's Get Out of Jail Free card apparently didn't carry over to his role in the series as a whole.

"Private Practice" creator Shonda Rhimes hasn't commented publicly yet on Daly's departure, though she wrote an extended goodbye to two cast members of "Grey's Anatomy" who left the show following its eighth-season finale.

Actresses Chyler Leigh and Kim Raver left that series at the end of the season, with Leigh's character, Lexie, killed off and Raver's character, Teddy, leaving the hospital for another job.

Upset that both characters are leaving the show, Rhimes wrote, "I don't like life changing in an instant and turning on a dime."

'The Bachelorette' recap: Emily's true love -- Dolly Parton?

Dolly Parton on "The Bachelorette"

OK, so this was the least painful episode of "The Bachelorette" yet this season. But it included a visit to Dollywood. So, obviously.

That's right. Dolly Parton herself made an appearance on "The Bach" this week, and her glitter and ample cleavage and bedazzled gloves temporarily made this season bearable. Unlike the men vying for Emily's affection, Dolly was also the only person capable of bringing some personality out of our leading lady. 

In case you missed it, Emily is from North Carolina, which means she listens exclusively to country music like Gloriana and Luke Bryan and other people you've barely heard of who need to plug a new album on the show. It also means that she worships Dolly Parton and grew up visiting the musician's Tennessee theme park, Dollywood. So on her one-on-one date with race-car driver Arie — totally my new fave, by the way — the pair flew to the park. They played carnival games to win prizes for Ricki Tick, obv. Emily white-knuckled her way through a roller-coaster ride. And then they visited the old theater on the premises where — shocker! — Dolly walked out in some killer boots and surprised the couple on stage.

Emily proceeded to freak out, acting for the first time all season like a human being while repeating "I could die" 3,000 times and covering her mouth in awe. 

"Surprised? At Dollywood?" Dolly asked Emily, shocked that she didn't pick up on the beyond-obvious setup.

Dolly then lived up to every little girl's dream by acting like the coolest fairy godmother ever, asking Emily to sit down for a "girl chat" and imparting her wisdom about her 45-year marriage. Poor Arie was totally overshadowed, but redeemed himself later that night at dinner by playing right into her father fantasy. Oh, yes, Arie had dated a woman with not one but two children, and when they broke up he didn't miss his ex, he just missed her kids. You could practically see Emily salivating at the mouth.

"I don't have a whole lot of talents," she smiled. "But I am a good mom."

Really selling yourself there, sweetheart. Vom.

Anyway, Emily and Arie appear to have the most chemistry so far, and I like that he doesn't look as if he's on steroids or cry in alleyways because he misses his kid. Oh, right. That happened. Single-dad Tony left a group date to fret over leaving his 5-year-old son behind for the show. In theory, that's sweet. Except that when he called his kid, the boy barely seemed to register that daddio was gone and seemed confused by a game in which Tony referred to himself as Joker and his son as Batman. 

"Do you miss daddy at all? Do you miss me, buddy?" Tony pleaded desperately into the cellphone, welling up and pressing his head against the dirty bricks in the alley. Thankfully, Emily sent him packing, saying "she would never be able to forgive herself" if she kept him around while he was missing his child — in other words, he was weird-looking, and dudes who cry in alleyways are unattractive. 

Miss Emily does certainly seem to know what she's searching for looks-wise, as she nearly jumped Chris' bones during their one-on-one date. Am I the only one who doesn't find this guy hunkalicious? I guess he kind of has that strong-jawed Brad Womack thing going for him, which clearly revs Emily's engine. 

"If I saw you across the bar, I would not talk to you. I would be too nervous to talk to you," she told Chris, before learning he's only 25 years old. That's right: 25. A whole year younger than Emily. Even though she said she's always dated older guys, Emily was willing to overlook Chris' youth because he's so damn good — I mean, mature. 

Meanwhile, on the episode's group date at the park, Emily — clad in quite the revealing top and shredded Daisy Dukes — brought out a group of her "friends" to size up a handful of her suitors. Most of Emily's girlfriends all looked suspiciously older than her — we're talking, like, 40 or so. In fact, one guy was so perplexed upon seeing the group of women in the park that he asked: "Are we getting manicures?"

Yes, dude. A group of nail artists are waiting to give you gel manis in the sandbox.

In retrospect, I guess that's not that bizarre of an idea, considering what actually proceeded to happen: A bunch of random children bounded onto the playground and were told to frolic with the men. That's right. Some random North Carolina residents allowed their youngsters to climb the jungle gym and hop down the slide while being chaperoned by strange men on a reality television show so Emily could witness their parenting skills. Totally normal.

Oh, this episode was just jam-packed with awkward moments. There was the time that Ryan told Emily — IN FRONT OF HER FRIENDS — that he'd be upset if she got fat after they got married. The moment when Kalon — after talking incessantly — slammed Emily down in conversation, telling her condescendingly: "I love it when you talk, but I wish you'd let me finish." 

And then there was Alessandro, whose first and final words on the show were uttered this episode: "Compromise." Oh no, nothing was lost in translation when the Brazilian told Emily he viewed taking on a wife with a kid as a compromise, since it would mean he couldn't travel for his job as a grain merchant. This is a gypsy man who sells barley and quinoa, my friends. You can't tie him down.

'Duets' ratings may be meh, but judge Robin Thicke is a TV star

The crowd was kind of thin for Thursday's launch of ABC's "Duets." But interest was Thicke for one judge: pompadoured singer Robin Thicke.

The latest TV singing contest drew a paltry 6.7 million total viewers, not even enough to beat a block of comedy repeats on CBS, according to Nielsen. And among adults age 18 to 49, "Duets" got drowned out by Fox's rollout of "So You Think You Can Dance."

But fan reaction to Thicke -- the falsetto-singing offspring of TV star Alan Thicke -- was another story. As soon as the show aired, his name rocketed up to near the top of Google searches, a fate that somehow failed to smile upon his fellow judges: Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Jennifer Nettles.

What's behind his instant stardom? Well, Thicke was not previously as well-known as Clarkson, who won the first season of Fox's "American Idol" and has gone on to a platinum-selling recording career. But it also might have something to do with the fact that Thicke is a good-looking guy who specializes in a certain kind of R&B-flavored pop that tends to make the ladies melt.

What did you think of "Duets" and Robin Thicke?

'Revenge' cliffhanger finale: Is Madeleine Stowe's character dead?

Forget who won "American Idol." The TV show that has set the web abuzz is Wednesday's wacky season 1 finale for ABC's trashy soap "Revenge."

In a closer that boggled fans' brains, the producers built up more cliffhangers than a world-class alpinist might see in a lifetime. Chief among them: Did ABC really just kill off the show's prime antagonist, Victoria, the treacherous Hamptons heiress played by Madeleine Stowe?

Squelching a major character is a risky move for any TV series, but if the writers actually did decommission Victoria, they did it in grand fashion: The devious billionaire was presumed to be a passenger on a plane that just happened to blow up real good, thanks to a bomb planted by the mysterious White-Haired Man. 

Of course, this is television, so the whole plane explosion could be a dream. Or maybe Victoria broke a heel on the tarmac and had to race back to the terminal. 

In any case, the producers gave AMC's "The Killing" a lesson in how to end the first season of a promising-but-not-quite-mainstream series.

As the entertainment site Wetpaint wrote enthusiastically: "Cliffhangers? The 'Revenge' season finale just redefined the word."

If you watched the "Revenge" finale, what did you think? And if you haven't been following the show, would you be more willing to do so now?

Donald Driver's smiling, but 'Dancing With the Stars' finale stumbles

"Dancing With the Stars" winner Donald Driver now has a great-looking Mirrorball Trophy to go along with his Super Bowl ring. But the news for ABC after Tuesday's season finale wasn't as nice
"Dancing With the Stars" winner Donald Driver now has a great-looking Mirrorball Trophy to go along with his Super Bowl ring. But the news for ABC after Tuesday's season finale wasn't as nice.

The two-hour extravaganza that crowned Driver and his dance partner, Peta Murgatroyd, averaged 17.5 million total viewers, according to Nielsen. That's the least-watched "DWTS" finale ever and down 18% compared with the numbers a year ago. The most-watched finale was in November 2006, with 27.5 million tuning in.

Even so, ABC still won the night among total viewers. But Fox, which scheduled its "American Idol" performance finale at 8 p.m., was dominant among young adults, despite "Idol" ratings that were themselves at record lows.

What did you think of the "DWTS" finale? Why do you think its ratings hit lows?

'Dancing With the Stars' recap: Donald Driver wins the Mirror Ball

"Dancing With the Stars"
Talk about peaking at the right moment. After 10 weeks, 16 dances and “countless sore muscles,” “Dancing With the Stars” Season 14 came down to three finalists. Who would walk off with the coveted Mirror Ball trophy and a lifetime's worth of sparkle? Would it be swagger-ready sports hero Donald Driver? Classical singer and technical marvel Katherine Jenkins? Or heartthrob with magical buttocks William Levy? Any one of these finalists had the ability and the popularity to walk away with the title.

After three final dances, including one prepared just 24 hours before, were added to the judges’ scores and viewer votes, the winners and new champions of DWTS were:

'The Bachelorette' recap: Even Kermit can't save bland Emily

Kermit the Frog with "Bachelorette" Emily Maynard"I've never been called 'boring' in my everyday life."

Those, my friends, were words uttered by our new "Bachelorette" Emily Maynard just last week, following the premiere of the new season when many critics labeled her too bland.

Emily, I've got news for 'ya, honey: You are boring. Painfully, horribly, soul-shatteringly boring. So boring that even the Muppets can't save you. 

Seriously, people. I've logged a lot of hours watching this show, and there were many times when I didn't think I'd be able to make it through an entire season. (Things got especially dark during the days of Jake and Vienna, but let's not bring back bad memories.) But hoo-boy, Emily is a whole different animal. I'm not sure if it's the move from Hollywood to North Carolina, or the fact that Emily, being a single mom, makes it feel like everyone is walking on eggshells, but I am not digging this season so far.

Emily's first one-on-one date with Ryan was the least excruciating part of Monday's episode, and even so, it wasn't exactly tantalizing. Ryan went over to Emily's house to bake cookies for Ricki's soccer game. He put on a flowery apron and made a misogynistic comment how he needed to "get back to being a man" after the experience. It was clear Emily had the reins on the date, however, as she proceeded to drive to Ricki's soccer game to distribute said cookies and ask Ryan to wait in the car for a good 10 minutes while he literally slurped on a leftover juice box. FUN DATE!

Things got more standard "Bachelorette" later when Emily changed into a va-va-voom red dress and picked Ryan up for dinner in a show-provided Aston Martin. When they arrived at a local North Carolina restaurant, there was a crowd of people awkwardly waiting to cheer on their "hometown hero." A red carpet had even been rolled out. 

"I feel like we're all friends," Emily said of the locals. This from the chick who says she only ventures outside her tony home to go grocery shopping or take a jewelry-making class through her church. She's a woman of the people!

Inside, Emily wasted no time before she began grilling Ryan. Wait, but what's his profession? What's his relationship with his family? Does he prefer chocolate or vanilla? No matter! Emily wants to know if this guy is ready for her to pop out 50 more babies in the next few years and settle down in good ol' North Carolina.

"I've learned that I don't like when the girl just comes to me. I have to really step out of my own comfort zone and really pursue this woman," Ryan told Emily of his dating history.
This did not fly with Princess Emily.

"You say you want to chase after a girl, but it can't be cat-and-mouse forever," she cautioned, sending him a stony glare. "That's my biggest fear going through all this — is that people will see it as a game, like, 'Oh, I won.'"

Uh, you signed up for the wrong show, sweetheart. But hey, let's forget the fact that these two have absolutely no chemistry and send them outside to dance to a country band I've never heard of. Emily says she feels like Ryan is a bit "too perfect" and reminds her of Brad — a comparison I don't think could be more off — but she gives him a rose anyway.

And then came Kermit and Miss Piggy. Yes. Despite the fact that there is no new Muppets movie to promote, the puppets popped up at a charity event Emily brought a group of guys to, and it was horrid. There were scripted bits about Miss Piggy getting jealous of Kermit eyeing Emily. Miss Piggy talked about how attractive Emily's suitors were. Chris Harrison even chimed in from the crowd with Statler.

I get it! Emily has a kid! But does that mean we have to make the entire show even more saccharine than it already is? Other things happened on the group date, but I refuse to write about them because I will not encourage this type of behavior, show producers.

Time for the next one-on-one, which was given to Joe. The pair flew off on a private jet to Emily's home state of West Virginia, where they went on a date at the historic Greenbrier Resort & Hotel. I once went on vacation there with my family, and let me assure you, it was boring. Just like Emily's date.

Over dinner, Emily set her claws into Joe, asking him about his life plan.

"In five years, I see myself happy with no regrets — and as far as career-wise and relationship-wise, at the end of this, if it's you and I standing, I'll pack my bags and go wherever you ask me to go," he explained.

Blasphemy! You don't have a specific life plan? You're willing to do what Emily wants? Goner.

Emily tried to let Joe down softly, but then she began crying because she has real emotions and can't bear to hurt anyone's feelings and is perfect. It didn't work, and he probably hates her now.

Until next week. If I haven't gouged my eyes out by then.

'Dancing With the Stars' recap: Finals frenzy

"Dancing With the Stars"

“The beginning of the end starts … now!”

We’re at the tail end of another cycle of “Dancing With the Stars” and oh so close to crowning our Season 14 champion in a sea of confetti and glitter. It’s a big event, ballroom fans. The studio audience was lined with “DWTS” contestants of seasons past and present, like Jane Seymour, Emmit Smith, Donny Osmond and Maria Menounous, all present to see the remaining three couples strut their stuff in two routines: the judges’ choice and the much-anticipated make-it or break-it freestyle. 

After tonight, each couple will receive the music to their final routine, to be performed on Tuesday’s finale. Though if the close judges’ scores are any indicator, whoever walks off with the Mirrorball trophy on Tuesday will do so with the slightest of margins. These contestants are just too close to call: William Levy’s got his Latin beat and wildly popular sex appeal, Katherine Jenkins is the picture of technical mastery, and Donald Driver is a show-stopper in the end zone. Lucky for us, we were treated to six terrific dances.

'GMA' expands to midday with 'Good Afternoon America'

Good Morning America
"Good Morning America" is adding another hour this summer, but not in the mornings. "Good Afternoon America" will debut July 9 and run for nine weeks.

The show, scheduled at 2 p.m., will use the same studio as "GMA" in Times Square and will be hosted by "GMA's" Josh Elliott and Lara Spencer, with "GMA" big-wigs Sam Champion, Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos making special appearances — much the way Cliff, Norm and Carla from "Cheers" popped up on "Frasier" from time to time.

Rather than the harder news of the wee morning hours, the afternoon edition of the show will focus on celebrities, pop cupture, lifestyle and health reports.

ABC is no doubt hoping to replicate the success of "Today's" fourth hour, an extension of its morning show hosted by Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, which features the hosts chatting up celebs and frequently downing cocktails. The show has been successful enough to remain part of the NBC lineup since 2007.

"Good Morning America" recently beat longtime morning champ "Today" twice in the ratings.

'Grey's Anatomy' season finale: Shonda Rhimes comments on cast exits

Grey's Anatomy
The eighth season finale of "Grey's Anatomy" aired Thursday night and fans of the show were forced to bid goodbye to not one but two cast members -- one of them in a very permanent way.

Although it was known in advance that someone would die in the season finale, there was some question as to who it would be. Could it be McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey)? Or Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) herself?

It turns out that the ill-fated cast member was a Grey, but not Meredith. Her half-sister, Lexie, played by Chyler Leigh, went to that big sexy hospital in the sky. The poor resident died following a plane crash that involved most of the cast.

"Grey's" creator Shonda Rhimes confirmed the departure via Twitter on Thursday night, telling fans, "I love Chyler and I love the character of Lexie Grey. She was an important member of my Grey's family. This was not an easy decision. But it was a decision that Chyler and I came to together. We had a lot of thoughtful discussion about it and ultimately we both decided this was the right time for her character's journey to end. As far as I'm concerned Chyler will always remain a part of the Shondaland family and I can't wait to work with her again in the future."

The other cast member to leave was Kim Raver, who played Dr. Teddy Altman. Her exit was not as grisly as Leigh's: Altman left Seattle Grace to head up the Army Medical Command.

Of Raver's exit, Rhimes tweeted, "I know this season’s finale had some surprises for viewers and the exit of Kim Raver was one of the big ones. But Kim’s series option was up and she was ready to give Teddy Altman a much-needed vacation. It’s been a pleasure working with someone as talented and funny and kind as Kim; everyone is going to miss her terribly."

Fans can breathe a little easier about the rest of the cast now. It was reported by TVLine last week that series stars Pompeo, Dempsey, Sandra Oh, Justin Chambers, James Pickens Jr. and Chandra Wilson all signed contracts for two more years.

Upfronts 2012: 5 buzzed-about pilots that didn't make the cut

Snoop dogg

Lost in all the hoopla surrounding the fall lineups on the major broadcast networks were updates about pilots with major stars and producers that received a lot of buzz in the last few months but for whatever reason didn't make the schedule. Those missing shows include:

The "Snoop knows best" sitcom: NBC had been developing a sitcom that would have featured rapper Snoop Dogg as a father. Deadline Hollywood last October reported that TV comedy veteran Don Reo was producing the pilot. Snoop had been featured in a reality series about his family on E! and has appeared in several movies and TV series. Still, it's hard to imagine the gangsta rapper being on the same network that showcases upscale series like "Smash" and the freshly scrubbed Whitney Cummings.

The Sarah Silverman project: The comic was developing a pilot for NBC about a woman reentering the dating world after the decline of a lengthy live-in relationship. The comedy was loosely based on Silverman's life, and Jeff Goldblum and Ken Leung ("Lost") were among the stars attached. With the failure of Chelsea Handler's "Are You There Chelsea?" and the renewal of the struggling "Whitney," perhaps NBC felt there was room for only one edgy female comic voice.

VIDEO: Watch 2012 TV previews

—The return of Roseanne: One of the most-buzzed-about pilots reunited Roseanne Barr with her "Roseanne" co-star John Goodman in a comedy that would have featured them in a trailer park setting. Instead of playing a married couple, Roseanne starred as the manager of the park, while Goodman played a friend who also worked at the park. Despite the failure of her talk show and several reality series, Barr remains a compelling performer. Perhaps instead she can dedicate herself to her  presidential campaign.

The return of Martin Lawrence: Martin Lawrence, whose film career has sagged, was set to star in a sitcom for CBS playing a widower with two teenage sons who decides to become a police officer after he loses his construction job. The pilot always seemed like a long shot for CBS, whose comedies generally revolve around young, predominantly white casts. The network is the one major broadcast network that does not have a minorty in a lead role in a comedy or drama.

—"Devious Maids": One of the most anticipated fall ABC pilots was "Devious Maids," the follow-up series from "Desperate Housewives" creator Marc Cherry and co-executive produced by actress Eva Longoria, about four Latina maids who work for rich families in Beverly Hills. Some observers speculate that the series' chances were not helped by potential controversy over Latina stereotypes.

Which of these shows would you like to have seen on the fall schedule?

'Bachelorette' Emily Maynard: 'I've never been called boring'

Emily Maynard

Almost immediately after the premiere of "The Bachelorette" on Monday, fans of the show -- including yours truly -- began expressing concern about our new leading lady.

Not only does the blonde Southern Belle look like a Barbie doll, but she often seems to act like one as well. That is: She comes across as stiff, and sometimes inauthentic.

In a conference call with journalists Wednesday, Maynard responded to the criticism, saying she's "never been called 'boring' in [her] everyday life."

Maynard, 26, is the first single mother to ever be cast as "The Bachelorette"; the father of her 6-year-old daughter, Ricki, was killed in tragic plane crash just days before Maynard found out she was pregnant. Subsequently, Maynard's role as a mother is being played up heavily this season. In the opening montages of the premiere episode, we saw her spending nearly all of her free time with Ricki.

While Maynard says "there's a lot more to [her] than just being a mom," she admitted that the majority of her days are spent "just running errands and doing mom stuff." Asked what she does for fun, she said she takes a jewelry class through her church and mentors a girl at a school in a low-income neighborhood.

Meanwhile, Maynard has also taken heat for featuring her daughter on the show -- a critique that former "Bachelor" and single father Jason Mesnick largely was not subject to.

"I definitely felt like there was a little bit of a double standard with Jason," she acknowledged. "People will see that Ricki's life was not really affected at all. I got to spend a lot of time with her and take her to school and do all my mom stuff. Plus, she got to travel the world. ... She was very protected throughout the entire process."

Even though her season has now completed production, Maynard would reveal little about her romantic status.

"I am really happy," she said cheerily. "I was happy before I went on the show, but I'm really happy now, just having gone through it and just learning so much about myself."
