Tuning In to TV
Question of the Day
It’s a long way from running a bar on “Cheers,” but Ted Danson this fall will join the cast of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” CBS announced late Tuesday.
Mr. Danson will play the new supervisor for the Las Vegas CSI team, the Associated Press reports. It’s the position originally held by William Petersen and then filled by Laurence Fishburne, who had been on the show since its 2008-09 season.
Attention, John Stamos: Are you getting the message?
Last year, “Dancing with the Stars” regular Karina Smirnoff told People magazine that the actor, 47, is her dream partner for an upcoming season of “DWTS.”
According to People.com, it looks like she is relaunching the campaign. Asked recently about whom she wants as a dance partner, Miss Smirnoff, 33, was abundantly clear.
“Definitely John Stamos,” she told Hollyscoop. “I think he’s got the looks, he’s got the experience of being onstage, doing Broadway.”
The “ER” and “Full House” star most recently spent some time singing — and dancing — as Dr. Carl on Fox’s “Glee.”
Miss Smirnoff has appeared on nine seasons of “DWTS” and most recently partnered with actor Ralph Macchio.
