The "Let me tell you something about Deb Messing" troll
Even if SMASH comes back, they could write her out with no problem. I'm sure Daniel Sunjata wouldn't mind replacing her.
She still hasn't lost the baby weight.
Yes, R9, but unfortunately the "baby" is in high school now.
I lurve her, and would watch her in anything. Except "Smash".
She'll be 45 this year. Separated, with one son. Please don't let her character get married; I want her to stay single and dating forever, like Mary Richards.
TV husbands are disposable goods.
from David Groh to Brian d'Arcy James
Uh, R11, she'll play a married mom in the pilot.
I feel sorry for the poor schmo who gets cast as her husband.
Perhaps there will be a French version: "Qui était cette cunt?"
OP, SMASH was toast by the end of the pilot episode; this season it's just ashes.
Maybe Deb as a producer can swing a job for Will Chase as her hubby in the new show; he was damn sexy last night on THE GOOD WIFE (a CBS show - how convenient!)
What's saddest about the article at the link is that it also tells us the wonderful SOUTHLAND is dead.
Doesn't she have a glass eye or something?
Actually writing her out of Smash would be good for both.
According to Deadline Hollywood SMASH isn't coming back. It's dead.
I've been on DL for a couple of years and have heard a lot of Debra Messing hate. I'm just curious as to why. I don't care that people dislike her, I just want to know why.
I thought Sean Hayes was doing a pilot, too. He co-produces Hot in Cleveland and has been on it a time or two. He IS funny. Deb needs something new to click. She has never matched the Grace Adler character and that bar was not all that high.
NBC wasted a great opportunity on SMASH by never having Deb and Sean's characters even meet, despite the fact that both shows were rehearsing in the same building. They could have just both gotten on an elevator together for half a second...
How many episodes before that crap gets cancelled? 4? 5?
Rumor is that her co-star is Jennifer Anniston and the title is "Two and a Half Cunts"
R22, it'll never even get past the pilot stage. CBS will never pick it up because it doesn't fit with any of their other comedies.
She needs to go back to NBC and do a Mary Tyler Moore-type show, where she is divorced and surrounded by kooky co-stars. Maybe get james Burrows to direct. She's of the age where Baby Boomers can identify with her plight.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
