Heather Locklear joins the cast of Franklin & Bash in hopes of ratings boost

Producers of Franklin & Bash hopes lighting strikes twice when Heather Locklear joins the cast.

When Heather joined Melrose Place back in the 90s, there was an immediate ratings boost as her character stirred up trouble.

This time Heather is joining the TNT lawyer dramedy for Season 3 as a new series regular named Rachel King, a new partner at the firm.

Her character is described as "a stunning trial lawyer, with stiletto heels and clothes tailored within an inch of their life."

She immediately stirs up trouble and adds conflict within the firm. Which is exactly what producers want.

Heather replaces Garcelle Beauvais, who was let go, to find room for Heather.

Will Heather's wicked ways help save this show in desperate need of a ratings boost?

Poor Heather, I love her, but she looked downright disturbing on Hot in Cleveland recently, and her acting chops seemed to have worsened.

R1 That's what drugging and boozing do.

She can probably barely remember her lines.

They need to get both leads naked on a regular basis. THAT will give them the ratings.

I thought she was going to be a regular on Hot in Cleveland. Confusing.

WHO? Joins WHAT?

by Anonymousreply 501/18/2013

She only did 3 episodes of Hot In Cleveland.

When Heather appeared on Melrose Place the ratings jumped two ratings points, and it keep climbing.

She then demanded a six figure sum PER EPISODE. It was because of her the ratings went up. She wanted a piece of the action.

Franklin & Bash have hopes for the same thing here. Heather is a show saver, not a show killer.

She's never been much of an actress but more of a presence.

Heather is a multiple Golden Globe nominee.

Look at Heather's track record.

Dynasty, TJ Hooker, Melrose Place, Spin City.

Every time she joined one of these shows, there was an immediate ratings boost.

True, R12 but all of those shows weren't as bad as this one. Franklin & Bash is just circling the drain. I was surprised it even got renewed.

Her cheek implants are disturbing.

Then you must be a fan of Aaron Spelling's work.

It got renewed because the network wanted a sexy pot stirrer. Someone to come in and start a shit load of trouble at the firm.

I think "Dynasty" may have had more to do with Joan Collins.

You forget that Heather did both Dynasty and TJ Hooker at the same time. Dynasty audiences wanted Heather back.

Yes, and Breckin Meyer needs to bottom for Mark Whatshisnuts. That would get me watchin'!

The only shows one really can credit Heather with saving are Melrose Place and Spin City.

And McDonald's has served billions and billions.

honey, that was almost 20 yrs ago

I don't think she'll do anything for their ratings but I'm all for Heather working. It keeps her out of trouble and gives her something to do with herself besides get arrested or land in the hospital.

I am happy she's still on nighttime TV but...I really wouldn't mind if she ended up TAKING OVER a daytime soap. DAYS could certainly use a new chick to against Kristen DiMera, who's currently wiping the floor with Marlena et al.

have both male leads been nekkkid, or just one?

by Anonymousreply 2801/19/2013

Just one. On one show.

by Anonymousreply 2901/19/2013

I don't see how this is good news, honestly.
