Who found some good TV last night - tell us about it?
Tonight the focus is on NBC's season premiere of "Parenthood", please check out our interview clips below with series stars Peter Krause and Dax Shepard (Shepard is on Jimmy Kimmel tonight BTW). We like the show a lot but are sometimes intimidated by the large number of characters - you can't let an episode slip by!
We just saw the news that TBS has cancelled "My Boys". We interviewed one of the series stars, the very likable Jamie Kaler, a couple years ago here on LAist but despite him being a bright spot in the show, it really lost a lot of power when Jim Gaffigan departed the show. We hope to see Kaler and his comrades in another show very soon.
Rest In Peace Harold Gould: We loved him as Valerie Harper's dad in "Rhoda" and your many other TV and film appearances. Gould died on Saturday in Woodland Hills at the age of 86.
