"Q&A with Alison Sweeney, the hardest working woman in television"

Alison Sweeney is certainly giving Ryan Seacrest a run for his money when it comes to having the most jobs in Hollywood. And quite frankly we think she's giving him a run for his money when it comes to most beloved industry icon, as well. In addition to spending her entire adult life on the last remaining NBC daytime drama Days of our Lives, she also pulls double duty as host of their popular weight loss competition series The Biggest Loser. She's a wife, a mother, an author, and an occasional spokeswoman. And oh yeah, she's about to star in a reality series focusing on her famous female friends and the dinners they have together, too. We don't really know how she does it, especially considering the daytime medium often has her shooting sixty pages of dialogue at a time and her storyline is about to heat up even more with a few faces from her past reemerging and sure to stir up some trouble...

Patrick Muldoon adds maturity to Austin Reed on Days of our Lives"

The last time we saw Days of our Lives’ Austin Reed, he was a fun-loving, somewhat goofy guy who was hopelessly in love with Carrie Brady.

"NBC commits to Sarah Silverman"

NBC is no stranger to being a saving grace for comedians who are venturing into the land of the sitcom. In the late eighties, they kickstarted Jerry Seinfeld's mainstream career by putting the stand-up at the center of his own show, and that proved to be so successful (read: profitable) for them, they have continued down that route. Recently they attempted to lengthen Paul Reiser's time in the funny limelight and for the new fall season they took on a vehicle project for Whitney Cummings and one for mid-season based on Chelsea Handler's life and writing. Today the peacock network announced plans to go even further in this direction by purchasing a project from Sarah Silverman... [MORE]
