With literally hundreds of appearances in television and film dating back to the 1960s, you might think that Ed Begley, Jr. (“St. Elsewhere,” “Arrested Development,” “Best in Show”) could be a little jaded about the idea of returning to series television.   

But as Begley reveals in the following interview, after reading the script and seeing the pilot for a new one-hour domestic comedy called “Your Family or Mine” (Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on TBS), he couldn’t say “yes” fast enough.  

Aisha Tyler must be one of the busiest people working in Hollywood today.  Seen daily on CBS’s “The Talk,” Tyler has also hosted The CW’s “Who’s Line Is It Anyway?” for the past three years.  

Since 2010, Tyler has been the voice of deadly super-spy “Lana Kane” on “Archer,” airing Thursdays at 10 p.m. on FX. The animated comedy’s carefully plotted, rapid-fire scripts rightfully inspire comparisons to another beloved cult classic – “Arrested Development.” 

As you read this, I want you to imagine a dapper man sitting with a guitar in the warm California sun. He’s singing a song that he just wrote about your life.  

Alright, the song may not specifically be about your life - or mine - but no one will fault us for thinking that it could be.

Randy Bachman talks ‘Heavy Blues’

As a founding member of both The Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman’s status as a rock legend is secure.  

Bachman has a reputation for being among the most unassuming of rock stars. If you were to ask Randy, he would tell you that he’s just a regular guy who still loves rock and roll and radio. 

Spencer Albee, a fixture in New England’s music scene for more than two decades, has a lot on his mind these days.

Chief among the thoughts bouncing around his brain are the new songs he’ll unveil this Saturday, March 21 at 7 p.m. as headliner of “State of the State 3” – a celebration of Maine music organized by Kyle Poissonnier and held annually at the State Theatre on Congress Street in Portland. 

BANGOR – In 1992, sources as varied as The New York Times and George Costanza (on an episode of “Seinfeld”) reported that salsa had outsold ketchup in the United States for the first time.  America had a new preferred condiment. 

Many fans might argue that salsa is not a mere condiment but actually a side dish and should be rebranded as such.

Wolfgang Puck brings Maine to the Oscars

For the past 21 years, Master chef and restaurateur Wolfgang Puck has been commissioned with crafting menus, cooking and serving the more than 1,500 attendees of the Academy Awards during the post Oscars dinner, “The Governor’s Ball,” held immediately following the ceremony.  

As preparations for this year’s dinner began last week, he took time out for a phone interview to talk about the event and how he always insists that Maine is part of the celebration.  

Mike Rutherford, guitarist, bassist and founding member of Genesis, sounds astonished when presented with a rundown of Genesis-related success in the 1980s.  

That decade alone saw four hit-producing Genesis albums, four mega-selling solo albums from Phil Collins and three from Peter Gabriel.

Take a road trip with Shannen Doherty

Take a road trip with Shannen Doherty 

It’s been more than 20 years since Shannen Doherty left the show that launched her career. As the occasionally diabolical Brenda Walsh on the original “Beverly Hills 90210,” Doherty too often saw herself being gobbled by scandal-stirring tabloids and in search of direction.
