Well, this is an entirely unpleasant way to end the week: BEN AND KATE — which was just yanked from the Fox lineup — has now ceased production on the final batch of episodes.

Ever wonder what kind of parents could have spawned BEN AND KATE’s BJ? It seems like we’re about to find out: Fox has confirmed that Jane Seymour will guest star on an upcoming episode as BJ’s mother, Wendy. According to TVLine — who was first to report the news — BJ’s mother is a “sexy, […]

When a comedy pilot is delightful, there’s always the question about whether the quality can be sustained or if it’s a one-time fluke. With Fox’s BEN AND KATE — one of the comedy pilots I adored the most this season — I’ve been so delighted to find myself equally enamored with the episodes that have […]

Fox Changes Schedule for October 23rd: X FACTOR, RAISING HOPE, BEN AND KATE, and NEW GIRL to All Air

Fox has changed their lineup for Tuesday, October 23rd again. Originally, the comedy block (RAISING HOPE, BEN AND KATE, NEW GIRL, and THE MINDY PROJECT) were set to air there as normal.

I’ve made no secret of how much I adore the new Fox series BEN AND KATE, and tonight, the series officially debuts on television. (Hopefully by now you had the chance to watch it online, so the viewing on Fox will simply be you rewatching the first episode.) I sat down with series stars Nat […]

One of my favorite things about this time of year is unexpectedly falling for a show you never thought you’d fall for. This season? That show is BEN AND KATE. It’d be easy to dismiss a show about a quirky family, but there’s something special about these guys: they have heart, their antics are believable […]
