CELEBRITY CHRISTMAS - SCOTT BAKULA
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Christmas is music for Scott Bakula. He and his family host a huge musical event in their home on Christmas. Bakula says they invite "like 120 people." He says some of them sing and some of them play instruments. He says music is a big part of his life and that of his family.

Ratings -- a little lower, but higher than... Chuck

Men of a Certain Age
- 4.425 million viewers
- 2.8/5 HH
- 1.3/4 A18-49
It's official, I'm not making anything at all out of Men Of a Certain Age's 19% post-premiere drop, considering that The Closer was down almost 12%. If that's not a series low for The Closer, I'm pretty sure its among the lowest episode since the early days of the show, and I'm pretty sure it's the lowest since we started this blog over 2 years ago.
Men again edged The Closer out in adults 18-49, just like last week.

Review -- Z on TV -- Men of A Certain Age

Let me tell you how much I like TNT's new drama series, "Men of a Certain Age." The cable channel sent me five hours worth of screeners, and I watched all five back-to-back Saturday -- and would have watched another five hours of the series if they had sent them.

Outside of Tony Soprano, middle-aged, existential male angst has rarely been explored with any intelligence or sensitivity on TV. But it is here.

Then, there is the acting. Five minutes into the pilot, I believed totally in this world, these characters and their lives.

Bakula is the character that is going to get critics calling this series "Sex and the City" for baby boomer men. But that's not really an apt description -- too simplistic and glib. Bakula's Terry just seems to enjoy women -- and to talk unselfconsciously about the physical ways he enjoys them. In the fifth episode, when he starts to show more depth and soul, Bakula makes you believe in that part of Terry's character, too.

I wasn't going to do this, but I am getting so wound up remembering how much I enjoyed watching the show

I've been waiting for Sepinwall's review and now it's up
...I'm sure it's tempting to look at the cast of "Men of a Certain Age"... and say Romano has no business acting in a drama opposite Andre Braugher and Scott Bakula...


Reminder -- as if you needed one

Scott's new series, Men of a Certain Age premiere's tonight at 10pm ET on TNT. If you are in a different timezone, please check your listings.

Review -- MOCA

What makes this show so great is how realistically written it is. Instead of soap opera drama or insane plot twists, it takes situations that many people can relate to. There aren’t many people who can relate to a doctor who has an unhealthy, on again then off again relationship with a man who has an evil twin, but they can understand a man who despises his job, but knows he must keep it to care for his family

Interview -- Men of A Certain Age Q&A

Red’s Celebrity Interviews: Scott Bakula
I was sad during our last week because I knew we wouldn’t be together when it first aired... We did a lot of improv, which was fun. The show gives an insight into Ray... he’s quick but he has this vulnerability. I think his fans will be delighted because that vulnerability will be very appealing particularly to women. What’s most unusual about the show is that men are talking about their feelings with other men. I think there’s something very open and honest about that.

Interview -- The Informant (New Stuff!)

"They didn't prep me and say: this guy is bipolar," he says. "Literally, when I read the script first, every 10 pages I would stop and flip back 10 pages earlier and say: 'Well, that's weird - that doesn't match up. He said his parents died when he was three and now, on this page, he said they died when he was seven.' I'd be thinking: 'These are mistakes in the script' but, at the same time, be thinking: 'No, these guys are way too smart to be sending out scripts with mistakes like this'.

The issue you want is next week. I'm not sure when it comes on newsstands and not all stores have TV Guide anymore, but you want the one that says Simpson's Turn 20 on the cover.

favorite quote so far (social media keeps interfering with my reading!):

We’re just trying to get a pick up for next season. That’s all we want. We want to keep working. We’re having too much fun and we don’t want to stop.
Any transcription errors belong to TNT (who we will forgive for the sake of the huge billboard on Sunset Blvd and the super idea of promoing on a marathon route!)

Press -- Scott Bakula would love to return to 'Chuck'

Finally located this in my google alerts.
There was a phone press conference today And of course Scott would love to be on Chuck again.
MOCA only has 9 eps to shoot and they've been at it a while, while Chuck got an order for an additional 6, so maybe they will have time to write something for him.
We can hope. (and maybe twitter at the writers...)


Promotion -- Men of a Certain Age conference call

@thetvchick: Men of a Certain Age conference calls today! Andre Braugher is done--but do you have any questions for Scott Bakula or Ray Romano?
about 2 hours ago from web.
Too late for questions, but stay tuned

Yup, that's right - we're moving up in the world! According to this clip Scott will be seen tomorrow morning on The Weather Channel's Wake Up With Al.
In (someone)'s defense, Al Roker once did an interview with Scott (I think it was 95, as he asked whether Scott's young daughter Chelsea would be "going to see the movie" (Lord of Illusions) and he said no) and it was a very good interview.
In Eastern Time, WUAH (yup, they call it that) air at 6am and 10am.

Quote -- "Some of them are behind us right now"

Scott was in New York yesterday for the premiere, there, of the Informant

Here's a brief article from TV Guide/AOL/UK

Scott Bakula has said he'd like to reprise his role in Quantum Leap.

The actor appears in forthcoming film The Informant! and at its New York premiere said he'd love to see a return of the cult show, in which he played its time-travelling lead Dr Sam Beckett.

"I'd like to do it again and there are talks, but I don't think it's going to happen - there are complicated legal issues," he said.

But at least the show still has dedicated fans to keep it alive, some of whom had turned out to see Scott at the premiere.

"I see these folks, they follow me to various places. Some of them are behind us right now - I'm not kidding," he said.

The Informant! is due out in the UK in November.

Scott and Chelsea will be taping a PBS special tomorrow in LA.
that's as far as I've gotten, but most PBS specials do end up on PBS (that thing Roxann Dawson did about directing Enterprise never did, but it probably wasn't a special) so, if their part doesn't get cut, we will at least get to see it on TV.
If you must be there in person, you've probably already been to the SBFF. The link I followed lead me to something about bras (but then, I'm not that motivated).
