Confession time. It’s been awhile since I've watched Fox’s House. It is one of those shows I enjoy when I have a chance to catch it, but I rarely go out of my way to tune in. That changes tonight as former General Hospital star—and the best Emily Bowen Quartermaine—Amber Tamblyn guests as brilliant, but socially awkward third year medical student Martha Masters. In an interview with Zap2it, Tamblyn previews her character.
"She's incredibly smart. Annoyingly smart. Exhaustingly smart. It's kind of a social handicap and of course House loves that -- she's 10 to 20 years younger than all of the other people on his team and she sort of puts it to them," Tamblyn explains. "No one on the team is particularly attracted to her, they're kind of annoyed by her. Her way of communication is very special. She's kind of the little sister they all tease." READ MORE
USA TODAY just published the results of their 12th Annual Save Our Show Survey and Nathan Fillion's Castle received the "most startling show of support" and ranked fourth in the poll with 39 percent of fans wanting it to return. In USA TODAY's complete results it reports that Castle's chance for survival "looks promising...given more lackluster ratings for other new ABC dramas." Unfortunately, the news wasn't so good for Amber Tamblyn's The Unusuals which ranked 12th in the survey, with only 25 percent of voters wanting it to return.
No mention was made of Guiding Light fan's write in campaign in the web version of the article. GL fans may want to check out the newspaper edition to see if any mention was made. READ MORE
In the interest of seizing the opportunity, with Amber Tamblyn's latest primetime vehicle sinking faster than Chuck Pratt's approval rating—or I.Q. for that matter— I say Brian Frons get on the horn and ask Tamblyn to reprise the role that made her famous, General Hospital's Emily Bowen Quartermaine.
Since Bad Granny (Constance Towers) is in town for a spell, why can't GH simply say she's been holding the real Emily captive, before slicing NotEmily's throat, as part of Guza's next Sweeps fartacular? I'm sure GH fans would turn a blind eye to Emily suddenly having her original face, the way One Life to Live viewers did when Max Holden came back with his old kisser, or when Amerasian Blair Daimler suddenly became white and from the South.
If you are enjoying Amber Tamblyn's The Unusuals, like I am, don't get your hopes up that it will be sticking around and enjoy it while you can. According to The Live Feed "Even running against repeats at 10 p.m., Unusuals (5.3 million viewers, 1.3 preliminary adults 18-49 rating) placed last in the hour and dropped a couple tenths from last week to its lowest rating yet in the adult demographic." The Unusuals was also among USA TODAY's list of shows on the bubble. This is so unfortunate for Tamblyn. I had really hoped that this would be a hit for her.
