Video Chat with Bebe Neuwirth; 'Four Kings' Axed?; Big Night Tonight

Tonight at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT you can chat LIVE with Cheers actress Bebe Neuwirth on TVLand.com. You can chat in real time with Bebe tonight after the TV Land Awards on the east coast at 11 p.m. and before the awards at 8 p.m. on the west coast. Raised in Princeton, New Jersey, Bebe Neuwirth has established herself as a versatile actress on stage, in film, and in television. She is perhaps best known for her role as Dr. Lilith Sternin in the television series Cheers, for which she won two Emmy awards. Her other television appearances include her Emmy nominated portrayal of Dorothy Parker in Dash & Lilly and guest work on Star Trek: The Next Generation, as well as Law & Order: Trial by Jury. Ms. Neuwirth most recently starred as Velma in the Broadway production of Chicago, for which she won a Tony award, a Drama Desk award, and an Astaire award. She also received a Tony award for her role as Nickie in Sweet Charity. Her film roles include Liberty Heights, Summer of Sam, Celebrity, Pinocchio, Jumanji, Malice, Say Anything, Green Card, The Faculty, The Associate, The Paint Job, Bugsy, and Tadpole.
Bebe will be interviewed by Celebrity Interviewer, Scott Nevins. To join the chat tonight, head on over to TVLand.com's Video Chat page by clicking here.

NBC has removed Thursday night sitcom Four Kings off the schedule effective this Thursday. Four Kings had been really struggling in the Thursday 8:30 p.m. time-slot. NBC will air repeats of My Name is Earl in the slot for the next few weeks before it decides what to do in that slot. It is not expected that Four Kings will return. If it does, it will probably be after May sweeps ends so it can burn-off the remaining episodes. A new season is for sure not likely.
NBC has a new sitcom coming next week called Teachers, airing Tuesdays after Scrubs. We should have a review of it very soon. NBC also has new sitcom Thick & Thin on the bench but they seem like they have no plans for that show at all right now.

Tonight is a BIG night in the world of television. First, we have the return of Out of Practice on CBS, with special guest star Marion Ross from Happy Days joining her former co-star Henry Winkler (The Fonz!). CBS will follow that with the new night and time for Jenna Elfman's Courting Alex. ABC last night brought back Hope & Faith after a few months off. Tonight, ABC will make TV history with the classic sitcom cross-over, with George Lopez and Freddie. Both half hours will feature the cast of each show guest starring on the other show--it is a two-part episode, too. Should be fun to watch!
TV Land will have the TV Land Awards from 9 to 11 p.m. followed by the premiere of Living in TV Land. William Shatner will be featured. Not to mention ABC's Lost is all-new tonight and they will premiere the new drama The Evidence right after it. NBC will debut new drama Heist tonight, too, at 10 p.m. So get those TiVo/VCR's working because it might be double duty each hour, unless you plan to watch the encore of the TV Land Awards at 12 midnight. What a night!
