On set with ABC's not so manly funny guys and gals
Bing: What clips and full episodes of "Man Up!"
MSN TV: What is "Man Up!" all about?
Christopher Moynihan: The hook of the show is that our grandfather's fought in WWII, our fathers in Vietnam and we play Call of Duty on Playstation III. People keep asking if we're trying to make some social commentary on the state of the common man, and we're not. There are still very many "real men" out there -- cops, firemen, people in Afghanistan fighting wars. You're just not going to see them on our show.
Dan Fogler: The guys on our show, except for Grant, don't have any skills for the lifeboat. We'd be kicked off very quickly.
Mather Zickel: Kenny and Craig don't care too much about that: Will's the one who's concerned. He's a guy who really wants to live up to an idea of manliness. If he feels he's not being a man or he's being challenged, he tries to rise to the occasion and he'll inevitably do something stupid and get into trouble. In his own way, though, I think he does always "Man Up."
How do the women in the show fit into these manly issues?
Teri Polo: The guys are our main characters, but my character is the eye of the storm. People come into her kitchen and then go out again, and she's just like, "Oh dear God, help me!"
Fogler: The women are pretty smart. They're savvy gals. Then Grant splits the difference: He's the perfect man, he's the perfect woman, he's the perfect everything.
Zickel: We all have our foibles and things that are a little despicable, but Grant is generous, handsome, big, great to Brenda, great to us, very supportive -- I have no idea why he would want to hang out with us.
Henry Simmons: The other guys might think this is the guy to be like, but he's very odd. There's something in every episode where you're like, "This guy is strange." I love that.
Unlike Grant, his girlfriend Brenda can get downright mean. Amanda, do you have to be careful to not come off as unlikeable?
Amanda Detmer: I've always been told to never shy away from it. They say no matter how hard I go at it, it doesn't come off as bitchy, because of the face and the big eyes. That being said, in real life, I can be a real bitch, so…
Simmons: I haven't witnessed that. She's been nothing but adorable.
Detmer: I like it here, so it makes it easy for me not to give it. Come visit me at home, you might see the Wicked Witch of the West instead of Glenda. (laughs)
How much do the rest of you have in common with your characters?
Fogler: If you stunted my growth when I was in eighth-grade, Kenny is very much like me. I think I'm more grounded? Shyer sometimes? I'm definitely not as loud or angry. Maybe if I got divorced, I'd be pissed off at the world and bitter, so you have to forgive Kenny for acting on his whim and being a lunatic. He's hurting inside.
Zickel: I share similar insecurities with Will. I always had a great deal of respect for my father and wanted to live up to those ideals of ethics, hard work and courage. Often, Will takes himself too seriously, and that's very true of me.
Simmons: I wish I was more like Grant. This guy, he doesn’t get angry. He just loves everybody. He's a great guy.
Detmer: Oh Henry, you're very much like that. When you're not around, the things said about you are what a great, calm, centered, positive person you are.
Simmons: Really? What else do you say?
Detmer: Depends on the gender of who's in the room. (laughs) In a table read [recently], they said something about the sound of my voice being the lovechild of a chipmunk and a cigarette. I felt myself get hot and I was laughing, sort of crying, because it was so on the nose. That's what's good about these writers:. They take our strengths and what's inherently you, and then they push it out and have fun with it.
Fogler: Teri's a card. You think she's straight-laced, but she's wacky.
Polo: I moon the crew on a regular basis, but comedy is a gift. There are people like Dan Fogler and Ben Stiller who can say one word and you're on the floor, peeing your pants. I'm good at reactions. I kind of perfected that in the "Focker" movies, but there are times when I get to see other people doing fun stuff and I think, "I want to do that, because I'm a goofball like Dan Fogler, you sexy mother!"
Craig and Kenny are in some ways the show's third couple.
Moynihan: Sure, it's Grant and Brenda, Will and Teresa and Kenny and Craig. We date girls who work at a fast food restaurant together [airing Nov. 29] and we live together. It's like Bert and Ernie.
So will single guys Bert and Ernie get some action this season?
Moynihan: Tons of it! There's a beautiful girl over on stage 3 that I'm hooking up with in an upcoming episode.
Zickel: [And in tonight's episode] Craig becomes the weekly act at a lesbian coffee shop. He sings lesbian anthems that he's written… because he's hitting on the woman who basically runs the place!
Moynihan: We have lots of girls come and go, and it always ends on a nice note -- "Oh, I guess that's going to be his girlfriend." Next episode, she's gone.
Fogler: Just like real life.
What would you say to lure in viewers who haven't yet seen the show?
Polo: It's just stinking funny. You're going to fall in love with these characters and know who these people are. You're going to love laughing at yourself and your friends every week, on television.
Zickel: Each episode keeps getting funnier. The plots are very involved. They start off with something very common place that very quickly goes into unexpected areas. People will not be disappointed.
Detmer: It's a little off. People need to give us a chance, because it's going to grow on them much the way we've grown on each other. Like a good, dirty shirt.
Simmons: Like a wart.
"Man Up!" airs Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

The secret agent sidekick talks about Morgan's surprise shift to the other side
In the fifth – and final – season of "Chuck," longtime sidekick Morgan, played by Joshua Gomez, finally gets some leading man action as the Intercept. But Sarah and Casey mistrusting him and Chuck (Zachary Levi) acting as his handler, he’s foiled again. We caught up with Gomez to chat about rocking the Intersect, his character’s friendship with Chuck and, of course, his new frosted ‘do.
MSN TV: Morgan has certainly evolved over the years.
When I first started he show, Morgan was a free spirit, and you know, a little bit impetuous, and the captain of his own ship. And so I think he's still obviously a big part of that, but he’s obviously grown up and matured a ton. He's more focused now and but still fun loving and very loyal, and a really good best friend, and someone to have in the firefight at your side. No actually that’s not true, he’d be terrible in a firefight, awful in a firefight, but a good best friend.
When did you find out that Morgan would be the Intersect?
It was somewhere at the end of season four. I think we were finishing up the 23rd episode and Chris Fedak, one of the co-creators, went down on the set and we were just talking and he was like, "Have you heard about 424 yet?" And I said no. And he was like, “Oh, I’m going to be really interested to see what you think.” And I was like kind of like "Oh boy, I’m dead."
And then it turns out that he said "No, no, no, just read it." And I did and you get to the last page and I know kung fu and it was like, "You’ve got to be kidding me. This is insanity, I’m a dead man!"
But I was very excited. Obviously it was really exciting to it change up and try new things. "Chuck" has been fortunate enough to go five seasons, but it’s like anything in that it has a chance to become a bit stale, especially as an actor and playing a certain character and playing in the same thing over and over again. So for me to be able to know that I was going to come into this season – if there was a season, because at that time we didn't know if we were even going to get a fifth season. But if we did, to be able to come into the fifth season, with a renewed sense of wonder and fun. It was awesome.
Then as I started to get the scripts and I saw this character becoming what he's becoming and how it was affecting him. It's nerve-wracking. Our fans are really loyal and they love "Chuck," and I’m like, "Oh, crap, I’m going to get things thrown at me for being a jerk."
But that being said, you know, it's your job, and so I said I’m going to go full force. My job in these episodes as you’ll see and especially in tonight’s episode, is you're not supposed to like Morgan, I think at this point. So I kind of threw myself into that, and I said it’s it was so much fun because it was a 180 from the Morgan of three or four seasons ago. As an actor, challenging and a lot of fun.
How did you prep for all his Intersect action?
I honestly just trusted our stunt and fight coordinators and they got me up and running in the beginning of the season with some crash course on some basic kung fu moves and, just different sort of stunt techniques. And, you know, where you're supposed to you're your foot when you’re kicking at somebody’s nose and yada, yada, yada.
But for me, I always tend stay pretty active anyway, I'm a pretty avid runner and things like that, so I felt physically good. And I'm not a dancer or a kung fu guy, or two things that really help in fight scenes, I think. Like Yvonne (Sarah) had a dance background so her balance and stuff is really, really good and mine is just terrible. I have just a really weak lower body, so kicking is not my forte. But, you know, it's good, they got me up and running, and then, we got - I have an amazing, you know, fight double and all that stuff, so easy enough.
So what can we expect from Morgan in this next episode?
Tonight is going to be a big part in the arc of Morgan and the Intersect. Clearly, something was not working correctly in his head. He doesn’t remember who Indiana Jones and Luke Skywalker are. And that just ain't cool in Morgan’s world. So obviously something is happening, plus his whole attitude is a little bit aggressive and something is wrong. So that comes to a head tonight. And clearly something is very, very wrong when you actually see my hair, because it’s something else. Some people like it though. I will go out on a limb say I’ve been told that some people actually find it fetching. I'm not one of those people. But there you go. But yes, so, basically yes, so this is a big kind of moment and it really kind of tests the boundaries of Chuck and Morgan's friendship.
You guys went into this season knowing it’s the last one. How’s it been going?
The end is nigh. And for us I think as a cast it's really interesting because you're because for four seasons, every season, we were approaching wrapping up it was sort of like we didn't know if we were saying goodbye for good or if just for a few months, and it was always this very tumultuous time.
And now it's got a different feeling to it. It's bittersweet and we're all a bit bummed. But we know our fate, and so it makes it a bit easier to deal with. So we're just enjoying every minute of it and having a really great time as a cast and crew and just really kind of taking it all in. And so it's actually been a really fun season, I think, for all of us. Despite knowing that it's coming to an end, just because I think we’re all trying to relish every minute of it.
"Chuck" airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
On set at Dayzee’s Café for a 'Blessed' daytime performance
"The Bold and the Beautiful" is celebrating Veterans Day today, with the help of local guardian angel Dayzee Leigh (Kristolyn Lloyd). Marcus (Texas Battle), Oliver (Zack Conroy), Thomas (Adam Gregory), Hope (Kim Matula) and crooner Beau Davidson also visit the cafe to help Dayzee honor the brave men and women who protect and serve the United States of America.
To set the scene, "'The Bold and the Beautiful" called in 20 real U.S. veterans from the Army, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Navy and Air Force. These heroes, who served in World War II, Vietnam, Persian Gulf, Iraq, Afghanistan and key military bases, portrayed themselves for an afternoon at Dayzee's Café, where they were treated to a live performance of Beau Davidson's new single, "Blessed."
The Nashville crooner, who usually performs sensual, emotional country music and was also operatically trained, went down a more patriotic road when writing this single.
"Normally, I write love songs, but I needed to step out of my shell and write something different," Davidson told MSN TV. "With the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and the political and economic strife right now, it's tough times. I thought, 'I need to write my own personal tribute about how I feel about the daily things we take for granted.' No matter what happens in this country or what sort of struggles we're going through, we're all blessed. My mom used to say, 'Count your blessings,' and that's kind of where the song comes from."
The cast and crew at "The Bold and the Beautiful" also got in on the salute to veterans in a more personal way, decorating the set with photographs of veterans in their families.
The last time Davidson visited "The Bold and The Beautiful," it was a very different affair. It was all about the romance when he was called in to perform as his "pal" Whip's (Rick Hearst) wedding gift to Taylor (Hunter Tylo). The episode aired back in April stateside, and as it continued to air in different countries, Davidson was blown away by the extended fan response.
"I was getting emails, Facebook requests and Twitter messages from all over the world," he marveled. "I got email from Norway, South Africa, Australia and Italy -- and from people who don't know anything about country music. They're rabid fans [of the show], and then to see them react to music the same way… They’re willing listeners and watchers and when they see something cool, like a song in the context of the show, they perk up. It's wonderful for me as an artist."
Check out how Davidson's performance goes today, Nov. 11, on "The Bold and the Beautiful" and if you enjoy "Blessed" look for it on iTunes.
UPDATE: Here's Davidson's "Blessed."
"The Bold and the Beautiful" airs weekdays on CBS.

MSN TV had the chance to talk with Karine Vanasse who drove down from her native Montreal to tell us what she loves most about playing Colette, Colette’s burgeoning romance with Captain Dean Lowrey (Mike Vogel) and how wearing clothes from a different era helps with filming.
"Pan Am" airs Sundays at 10p.m. ET on ABC.
TV favorite hosts the 'American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards' on Hallmark
By Minh Nguyen
Special to MSN TV
A lot of us were in mourning when Carson Kressley (“Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” “How to Look Good Naked,” “Carson Nation”) got voted off this Season’s “Dancing With the Stars.” Carson’s dances always put a smile on our face and we enjoyed every second of his dances. But rest easy, fans can get another dose of Carson as he hosts the innaugral "Hero Dog Awards" tonight on Hallmark Channel. Carson told us, “The event was fantastic. It was a great fundraiser. It was a great award show but it was also a great "friendraiser" for the American Humane Association. I am a big animal lover and they protect pets and animals in many different ways. Horses, dogs, (and) cats (are all protected). Anytime there’s a movie with a cat in it, they make sure that bowl isn’t really real and they’re not getting hurt. They also advocate for pet adoption and shelters. They do a myriad of important things. It’s really important and I got to work with Betty White. (She was) Fantastic. I think we’re sort of best friends now. She gave me her address. I’ll start showing up.”
Bing: Hero Dog Awards

Missed last night's 'Vampire Diaries'? Here's what you need to know to get by at the water cooler.
Missed last night’s "Vampire Diaries" mid-season finale? Here's what you need to know to get by at the water cooler.
"You father’s dead," Stefan said to Klaus, who was off hunting werewolves. And yes, original papa vamp Michael lay slain, a special dagger through his heart, on the floor of the Salvatore mansion. Elena had killed him. Stefan saw it with his own eyes. And Rebecca told him, yes, "it’s true. He's finally out of our lives for good."
Of course, it was all a part of the gang's plot to lure Klaus back to Mystic Falls so they could kill him. And as soon as they knew Klaus was on his way, they brought Michael back to life. When he awoke, Rebecca was leaning over him. And she had a bone to pick. "Klaus was not born a killer – none of us were," she said. "You did this to us. You’re the one who destroyed our family."
Elena and Bonnie went back to civilian life. It was homecoming, but both weren’t feeling it – and Bonnie was still mourning her break-up with Jeremy. Elena suggested they talk about it. "He fell in love with his ghost girlfriend and lied about it," Bonnie said, matter-of-fact. "What's done is done."
Later, Elena discussed the big plan with Damon while Stefan hunted a new tie for homecoming. He was crankypants-ing around, but he told them, despite the whole Klaus-compulsion thing, that "it's certainly not going to be me who screws up."
Caroline was pissed at Tyler because he'd set Matt up with Rebecca for the dance. "Matt's a guy, Caroline, and Rebecca's hot," he said. "Don’t overthink this."
Rebecca, meanwhile, was all decked out in red for her first ever high school dance. She wanted to forget about the whole killing Klaus thing and just enjoy herself. But she warned Elena: "Michael is definitely not a good person and he can’t be trusted. I spent my whole life loving and hating my brother with equal measure. But I never thought I'd be the one to help drive a stake through his heart."
In a sweet bonding moment, Elena gave Rebecca back her mother's necklace – and then she staked her. "I'm so sorry," she said, as Rebecca convulsed in pain. "But I can't leave anything to chance either."
Later, she told Damon, "it had to be done. Rebecca was never going to be completely on our side. Stefan was right. Somebody’s going to let their humanity in the way, and it's probably going to be me."
Damon said they couldn't trust any of them – and that he didn't Elena anywhere near them when everything went down. "Do you trust me?" he aksed. "Then you have nothing to worry about."
When Matt showed up to pick up Rebecca, she was clearly out of commission, so Elena offered to be his back-up date. And then the gym was randomly flooded, so the party was moved to Tyler’s house. When the gang got there, he told them: "It’s not a party. It’s a wake."
Front and center? Klaus, who announced to the crowd, "It’s been a long time coming."
Caroline, furious with her boyfriend, explained: "Apparently our sired hybrid friend Tyler thought it would be okay to let his master throw a party."
"I’ve been planning my father’s funeral for 1000 years," Klaus told Stefan, but he was pretty pissed when he didn't see Rebecca around. "Where’s my sister?"
Stefan tried to negotiate for freedom from his compulsion, but Klaus to bring Michael's dead body to him.
Michael, too, wasn't super-cooperative. He was curious about Rebecca's whereabouts and wasn't about to deliver himself, knocked out, to Klaus. So he attacked Stefan, drinking enough to knock him out, because he didn't trust him.
Klaus thanked Tyler for coming through for the party. Then told him that he had invited a few dozen friends of his own – a team of hybrids he'd sired on his big cross-country trip. "So if anyone should so much as make a move against me," he warned, "they may feel compelled to return it. Feel free to warn your friends."
So Tyler told Caroline. "He’s two steps ahead of you," he said. But Caroline said she didn't know anything. "And even if I did, I wouldn't tell you, because you’re sired to Team Klaus now, and you can't be trusted."
Then Tyler knocked Caroline out with some needle full of vervain. Craziness. He told Matt to get her out of there -- it was the only way to keep her safe.
Damon showed and attacked Tyler in a pretty evenly matched battle, but Bonnie came and witchy migrained both of them. Damon had the white oak stake.
The party cleared out so that Klaus could face off with Michael. A gang of hybrids watched them, waiting for Klaus's cue to tear Michael limb from limb. “Still hiding behind your playthings, like a coward," Michael said. "They’re still part vampire – they can be compelled by me."
Then he pulled out his trump card: Elena. "Go ahead," Klaus said, "kill her." It would mean no more hybrids.
"So you can live forever, with no one at your side," Michael said. "Nobody cares about you anymore, boy!"
But Klaus called his bluff. So Michael ran a stake right through her heart. As Klaus watched in shock, Damon staked him with the white oak dagger. Then Elena came back to life – it was Katherine this whole time – and bombed the hybrids. And Damon was about to finish Klaus, Stefan attacked, saving him – and allowing him to grab the dagger and stake Michael. The dagger ignited Michael's body, killing the original once and for all.
"What the hell did you do?" Damon asked Stefan.
"He's earned his freedom," Klaus said. But it seems Stefan might have lost everything else.
Caroline woke in Tyler's bed, and she was mad. "I'm sorry I stabbed you," he said. "But I need you to understand. Klaus can't be killed, I can't be fixed. I'm okay with it. I don't have to turn, Caroline. I never have to go through that pain again. If being sired to Klaus is the price I have to pay, so be it. But don’t turn your back on me now."
Damon was pissed, too, that Stefan had foiled their plans. Katherine was long gone – because she knew Klaus would come for her – but they were left to clean up the mess. "We'll survive this," Elena told him. "Trust me."
"You’re never getting Stefan back," he said. "You know that, right?"
And Elena told him what he wanted to hear: "Then we'll have to let him go."
Of course, what Damon didn’t know is that Katherine and Stefan had their own plan the whole time. She had told him that he needed to care enough to save Damon. "Your brother will be dead, Stefan," she told him. "Unless you care enough to do something about it."
She told him later, "humanity is a vampire's greatest weakness. No matter how you try to turn it off, it fights its way back in. So do what I need you to do, Stefan. Get mad."
Klaus, meanwhile, was already mad. Because Stefan had taken all those family members Klaus had been carting around in coffins for 1000 years. And Rebecca, too, was still MIA.
Eeeps. Looks like the second half of this season – returning January 5 – means all out war.
