Do Not Disturb - TV Show

Set in one of New York City's hottest hotels, Do Not Disturb follows the behind the scenes antics of The Inn. Recently named one of New York City's "10 Best Places to Stay," The Inn is the place to be, with the top clientele and staff. Though The Inn's owner, R.J. (Robert Wagner) takes all of the credit for the hotel's success, Neal (Jerry O'Connell) is just egotistical enough to believe the success is all his doing and will do everything in his power to keep the hotel up to his high standards.

Also working at The Inn is Rhonda (Niecy Nash), the head of Human Resources, who spends her day keeping Neal in check with a daily dose of brutal honesty and her own set of high standards to follow. The front desk is handled by Nicole (Molly Stanton), a former model who checks guests in while wearing 6-inch Manolos. Jason (Brando Eaton), is a Nebraska native and naive to the ways of the world, but was hired as a bellman to show off his perfect face and pecs. Rounding out the staff are Molly (Jolene Purdy), the reservations clerk who dreams of being a pop singer; and Larry (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), the head of housekeeping who does more talking than cleaning.

“DO NOT DISTURB (working title) is a hilarious workplace comedy set at one of New York City's hottest and hippest hotels: The Inn. Named one of the Big Apple's "10 Best Places to Stay," The Inn is just that - the "in" place to be, with its chic decor, stylish staff and celebrity clientele. Behind the scenes, however, the upstairs/downstairs dynamic tells quite a different story.

The hotel's top-notch reputation and sophisticated look is due in large part to NEAL (Jerry O'Connell, "Crossing Jordan") - at least in his opinion. Although The Inn's charismatic owner R.J. (guest star Robert Wagner) takes all the credit, Neal is the egotistical, hyper-stylish, detail-oriented general manager who will do whatever it takes to keep the hotel and its employees up to his standards.”

After three episodes aired, the show was rumored to be canceled on September 24, 2008. FOX officially canceled the sitcom the following day, making it the first cancellation of the 2008-09 season.


90210 looks at life through the eyes of Annie Wilson (Shenae Grimes) and her brother Dixon Wilson (Tristan Wilds), who learn from their first day at West Beverly Hills High School that they're not in Kansas anymore.

The Wilson family, including dad Harry Wilson (Rob Estes) and mom Debbie (Lori Loughlin), has relocated to Beverly Hills to keep an eye on Harry's mother Tabitha (Jessica Walter), a feisty-but-faded former television star and a charter member of the Betty Ford Clinic.

For Annie and Dixon, the awkwardness of being the new kids is made worse by the fact that their dad has taken a job as the high school principal.

The school is one big culture shock for Annie, a sweet and friendly girl with a passion for the theater, and Dixon, a star athlete and scholar who was adopted by the Wilson family after they took him in as a foster child.

Annie and Dixon have a close sibling relationship, which they'll need to help them cope with all the new cliques and classmates, including Naomi Clark (AnnaLynne McCord), a hot, spoiled, rich girl; Ethan (Dustin Milligan), a popular jock whose abilities rival Dixon's; Navid (Michael Steger), an aspiring reporter who heads up the school's daily newscast; and Erin "Silver" Silver (Jessica Stroup), a rebel who produces and stars in a YouTube-type video series.

Even the faculty seems hip and sophisticated at WBHHS, such as smart and funny teacher Ryan Matthews (Ryan Eggold), beautiful guidance counselor Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth), and successful theater actress turned high school musical director Brenda Walsh (Shannen Doherty).

The Wilson family has just begun to realize how much their lives are about to change.

Two and a Half Men

Two adults. One kid. No grown-ups.

Charlie is a well-to-do bachelor with a house at the beach, a Jaguar in the front and an easy way with women. His casual Malibu lifestyle is interrupted when his tightly wound brother Alan, who's facing a divorce, and his son Jake, come to live with him. Together, these two and a half men confront the challenges of growing up; finally. Complicating matters are the brothers' self-obsessed, controlling mother, Evelyn, Alan's estranged wife, Judith and Charlie's crazy neighbour Rose, who wants to be a part of his life and is willing to do anything to be around.

Charles Francis Harper (Charlie) is a successful and affluent 40 year old bachelor who has a career writing advertisement jingles. Charlie resides in a large oceanfront home in Malibu, California, and is portrayed as a chauvinistic, hedonistic womanizer; all he cares about is having sex. The plot begins when his wimpy younger brother Alan becomes divorced from his wife, moves out of their house, and has to move in with his brother. Alan has shared custody of his son Jake (10 when the series began), who stays with him part-time. The title is in reference to the fact that Jake isn't an adult yet, and only "1/2 a man".

Rose (Melanie Lynskey) is Charlie's zany neighbor and female stalker. Rose had a one night stand with Charlie shortly before the show started, which she believed to be more significant, and tends to enter his house through the patio in the most inopportune moments, expressing her ambition of obtaining Charlie, and often serving as a good, albeit crazy, friend and adviser. Although obviously troubled herself, Rose has stated a few times that she has a Master's degree in psychology, and Alan has referred to her as having two advanced degrees. In various episodes it is insinuated that Rose is very slowly orchestrating a psychological plan to win Charlie back. Early in the series after she's become "Scrabble" friends with Alan as a way to get closer to Charlie, she's heard to say (to herself) "Phase one, complete." Usually when Charlie asks Rose "did I ever tell you I'm sorry", on which Rose replies "For sleeping with me, and then never calling me again?" on which Charlie then replies "that, and ...".

Alan and Charlie's mother, Evelyn (Holland Taylor), is a hip, wealthy, early-sixties, many-times-divorced, bisexual, promiscuous, controlling mother of the brothers. Both Charlie and Alan attribute their life's problems to the dark manipulative force their mother manages to exert upon them even now, adding to the caustic humor of the show in the situations depicting their vain attempts to escape her (Her often being referred to as 'the devil'). For all of her selfishness and manipulation, Evelyn does love her kids and grandson deep down.

A great deal of the humor on the show comes from the real-life experiences of creator Chuck Lorre. In a now-famous Entertainment Weekly interview, Holland Taylor said that Lorre was using the memories of his own less-than-great relationship with his mother for the storylines involving Evelyn and Charlie/Alan. Charlie Sheen also said that it was "no accident...that Chuck finally decided to do a show about men. I'll leave it at that"

My Name Is Earl

You know the kind of guy who does nothing but bad things and then wonders why his life sucks? Well, that was me: every time something good happened to me, something bad was always waitin' around the corner. Karma. That's when I realized I had to change. So, I made a list of everything bad I've ever done, and one by one I'm gonna make up for all my mistakes. I'm just tryin' to be a better person. My name is Earl.

Well thats the start of the show, an introductory tag line at the start of every episode, and enough to bring me back in the mood of watching Earl. Well it pretty much explain what the show if all about, but its lot more fun than it just sound. You gotta watch it to believe it.

The show follows Earl Hickey, a no good bastard who is the personification of white trash. But when Earl wins the lottery only to get hit by a car and lose the ticket, he has an epiphany about karma. He realizes that by treating people poorly, he's done himself wrong and immediately sets out to be a better person. As soon as he makes this decision, the ticket blows into his reach again. With help from his brother Randy and a motel maid named Catalina, Earl resolves to make up for all the bad things he's done in his life.

This is Randy, Earl's Brother.

While hospitalized and under the influence of morphine, Earl hears Carson Daly talk about karma on TV and comes to the conclusion that his bad luck has been caused by his lifestyle. (It is typical of Earl that he believes Carson Daly invented the concept of karma.) He decides to make a list of everything bad he has ever done, with the intention of making up for all of his mistakes and crossing the items off the list as he goes.

This is Joy Earl's ex-wife.

And this is Crabman, Joy's new husband.

Earl's first good deed, picking up garbage, leads to him finding his lost winning lottery ticket. See the show to find out the rest, I wont spoil the fun.
