Quote -- re: SAG Awards

From USA Today

"I love the communal feeling of these awards," said Scott Bakula of TNT's Men of a Certain Age. "What we are as actors, for better and for worse, is visible. So it's just great when we use that visibility to do something good, like the telethon. I mean, come on, we are so lucky in this business. To do something for other people when they need it most just feels good."

TV -- Men of a Certain Age this Monday

This week's ep of Men of a Certain Age will feature the wonderful Robert Loggia, who had to remind me that he had done *two* movies with Scott, when I stupidly told him how much I loved "the" movie he did with Scott (he asked "which one?") oops. For the record, I saw Necessary Roughness a few times but I've seen Mercy Mission uncountable times.

I just heard Ray Romano on the SAG Red Carpet say "We're finishing editing the last one this week, and we got renewed, so we're ready to start tomorrow on the next one." (Ready, but I don't think that's the plan)

A line of Scott from SAG Awards

The SAG award for Star Trek was announced just moments ago during the Red Carpet Webcast for the SAG Awards. The award was co-presented by SAG Awards committee member (and Star Trek Enterprise star) Scott Bakula, who joked "I had nothing to do that!"

It's Monday!

And this week, that means, Chuck at 9pm (remember, Scott will return at the end of the season - want a season 4? Help us keep our ratings up :-) ) and Men of a Certain Age will not be on tonight due to basketball, but will return next Monday for episode 7 of 10 and next season, cause TNT really cares about he 25-54 demo! (and MOCA's ratings are going up in that demo!)

TV -- Behind the Scenes

Golden Globes Preview With Chris Harrison
Sun, Jan 17
03:00 PM to 04:00 PM ET (60 mins)
TV Guide Channel

Interviews with Golden Globe nominees; behind the scenes at the SAG awards; celebrities on the red carpet at the Grammy awards.
I point this out as Scott is on the SAG awards committee and... you never know

Fandom -- A thought from the trenches

Actually this is the happy part of fandom, but if you have never experienced it before...

Have you ever experienced Too Much Scott?
It's a rare condition that can only be contracted if you are in a small apartment with 4 or 5 other Scott fans who are trying to
play Scott videos
play Scott songs
show you their pictures of Scott
give you tapes of Scott singing
tell you stories about having met Scott
all At The Same Time.

The symptoms of this disease are:
You turn down the offer of the audio tapes of Scott singing with his church choir (or whatever) because you are so overloaded, you are not thinking straight.
I never did get those tapes.... but the pictures I was shown (this was in the pre-digital camera days) were very nice
Kim, if you ever see this, thanks for sharing your apartment!

TNT renews 'Men of a Certain Age'

TNT has renewed its Ray Romano freshman dramedy "Men of a Certain Age." The network has ordered 10 episodes for a second round. TNT called it an "easy decision." Though "Men" dropped sharply from its premiere, its last few episodes have been fairly stable, averaging around 3 million viewers.

"'Men of a Certain Age' has been embraced by viewers and critics alike, making our decision to renew an easy one," says Michael Wright, Turner's head of programming. "We look forward to continuing our wonderful relationship with everyone involved."

Episode description, no pix (the site, itself, has pix, of course.)

In case you've never watched Chuck

3 Things You Need to Know to Begin Watching Chuck With Season Three

Also, there isn't any Scott news, really. However, if I find anything, I'll let you know.
Obviously there *will* be an ep of Men of a Certain Age tomorrow night. I don't know the title or the premise, but that is because I avoid spoilers. Check back. I'll find a page with details.
Meantime, check out this link to support the show.

More Viewers = More Chuck = More Scott on Chuck, Watch Tonight

Last spring, we worked our little tails off to Save Chuck.
This winter, the folks at Chuck offered us an extra reward: more Scott!
So, on Sunday, gather the family and/or friends, and reciprocate.The Season 3 Premiere of Chuck is Sunday at 9pm ET on NBC.
Thank you. :-)

Scott's coming back!
Scott Bakula has signed on to reprise his role as Chuck’s spy daddy, Steve, for multiple episodes.

Pops was last seen in the season 2 finale fleeing daughter Ellie’s wedding reception for parts unknown.

Chuck exec producer Josh Schwartz calls Bakula’s comeback arc — which would fall at the end of the spy comedy’s third season (premiering this Sunday!) — “the biggest thing we’ve ever done on the show.”

Bakula is currently starring in TNT’s Men of A Certain Age. With production wrapped on that show’s first season, Bakula was free to return to Chuck.
here's the source (Ausiello) thanks to Elaine
(I did mention it was Chuck week, didn't I? Nice how that worked out. Thank you Josh Schwartz, and, of course, Scott)
And please watch the season 3 premiere, Sunday 9 to 11pm ET on NBC and Monday at 8pm

Ratings -- Overall, with a spin, courtesy of TNT

TNT's view of MOCA ratings
The entire quote is from the press release.
This past week's ratings put MOCA in 131st place after several eps of SpongeBob, but I'm going to need you to find that post (same site) cause I just saw a link about Donny Osmond's new radio show.
TNT’s new hit series Men of a Certain Age continues to perform extremely well, with the Monday, Dec. 28, episode delivering 3,123,000 viewers; 2,345,000 households; 1,186,000 adults 18-49; and 1,526,000 adults 25-54.

* The series also enjoyed a great performance this week. The Monday, Jan. 4, episode garnered 3,096,000 viewers; 2,365,000 households; 1,290,000 adults 18-49; and 1,693,000 adults 25-54. It ranked as ad-supported cable’s top entertainment program for the time period among viewers, households and adults 25-54.

* Men of a Certain Age has earned outstanding growth in DVR viewing, with the Dec. 7 premiere of the series growing its total audience by 36% in a comparison of Live + 7 to Live viewing.

* The Dec. 7 premiere, which holds position as ad-supported cable’s top new series launch of 2009 among households and adults 25-54, also boosted its delivery significantly in DVR viewing among those two categories. Households grew by 30%, and adults 25-54 grew by 43% when comparing Live + 7 to Live viewing. Meanwhile, the premiere episode also grew its delivery of adults 18-49 by 40% over Live viewing.

* For the first two episodes combined, Live + 7 vs. Live viewing of Men of a Certain Age delivered 34% growth among total viewers, 30% among households, 40% among adults 18-49 and 41% among adults 25-54.

TV -- Men of a Certain Age episode 5

I'm avoiding spoilers at every turn,  so I can't give you details, but needn't remind you tonight is episode 5 (of 10) of MOCA on TNT (@10pm and 1am). Scott's in it, so what do details matter? Ratings were down a bit last week, so tell a friend.

I'm really enjoying the show. So much, in fact, I must remind myself Chuck is returning next Sunday at 9. and 10. and Monday at 8.

I, too, promised NBC I'd ask you to watch. The Season 2 DVDs will be in stores tomorrow. $36.99 appears to be the best price (please email me if you find something better - there is a link at the top of the page that says Email Pam)

and here's a little ad

Poll -- Do you like Men of a Certain Age

Z, at Z on TV has asked me what Scott fans think of the show.

I didn't have much of an answer.
And I don't know how to work the poll widget, and I'm having company in 15 minutes, so if you could drop me a line and let me know: Like, dislike, bored, thrilled, and anything else you feel about the show. It doesn't have to be long, but it can be if you want. Whatever.
I'd appreciate it. (and if you don't mind being quoted, in part or in full, let me know that too.)


TV -- Men of a Certain Age and Chuck Marathon

In addition to the regular Monday episode of MOCA, the Syfy channel is running a Chuck marathon on Thu, Jan 7, and the 3 episodes with Scott will be included, starting at 10pm ET.
