From LA Examiner: Romance on 'The Middle', 'Suburgatory', 'Happy Endings', and 'Switched at Birth' Previewed...


"The Middle’s Eden Sher previews the “Year of Sue Heck”

When The Middle returned after its holiday hiatus, the Heck family made resolutions for each other in order to make 2012 the “Year of the Hecks.” Naturally some of the resolutions, like Brick (Atticus Shaffer) asking Axl (Charlie McDermott) to clean their room was a “one time thing” (at least according to McDermott himself). But series co-star Eden Sher shared that hers is sticking around. Yes, Sue Heck is officially the head of the Wrestlerettes. And her new confidence is helping her catch the eye of a young man on the wrestling team... [MORE]


"Suburgatory creator Emily Kapnek on Dan Byrd and upcoming romance in “Out in the Burbs”


“I’m a huge fan of Dan Byrd’s. I worked in Aliens in America, which was a show that Dan was on; I was in the writer’s room on that. I had a pilot for NBC…that Dan tested for, so interestingly enough Bill Lawrence, in promoting Cougar Town and wanting to keep it in the [public] eye, was doing a thing where he’s like ‘Let’s get our characters in.’ And he was like, ‘Get him in the background.’ And I was like, ‘Background?

And Max (Adam Pally) is gay, so he has no interest in the single girls (though watching him pretend as he cycled through them all as his “beards” was one of our favorite moments on television last year in general). Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) and Dave (Zachary Knighton) broke up in the pilot. And then that just leaves Penny (Casey Wilson). It was always supposed to be a show about Friends, not to draw any comparisons there, then a so-called “different stages of relationships comedy.” But times, are they a’changin’? ... [MORE]


"Vanessa Marano says Bay may lose everything on Switched at Birth"


For someone with as upbeat a personality as Vanessa Marano, she certainly knows how to bring a reporter down when talking about what’s to come on Switched at Birth. It’s not really her fault; it’s simply what’s coming up for her character, Bay-- especially with her current on-screen relationship with our favorite high school boy perhaps ever, Emmett (Sean Berdy). We sat down with Marano at ABC’s TCA press tour in Los Angeles to get the scoop on the back half of the first Switched at Birth season... [MORE]
