Cruz Beckham changed out of his Robin costume for some Lakers' gear to watch the game with his dad and brothers on Friday. Cruz displayed a range of emotions that was too cute for words. David was full of high fives and kisses but he wasn't the only good looking thing to check out courtside. Leonardo DiCaprio was there showing off yet another baseball hat from his collection although unfortunately for the fans, the Pistons defeated the Lakers for their first loss this season.
It seems as if both Nicolas Cage and Kelsey Grammer are fans of English country-style estates. Nicolas Cage's British look-alike recently went on the market in Bel Air, and Kelsey Grammer and his wife have put their Holmby Hills English estate on the market for $19.9 million. Since the couple have only owned this home for a little over a year, after having purchased it for $13.7 million, it looks like this house is more of a business investment than a family home.

The latest show to get a full-season pickup: Back to You, the Kelsey Grammer/Patricia Heaton comedy on Fox. The show was one of the first to be picked up by any network last spring, so I suppose it only makes sense that Fox would be standing by it now.
The network has ordered 11 more episodes of the show, bringing the total number of episodes to 24 for the season. Its ratings haven't been great — it hovers somewhere between 6.5 and 7 million viewers each week — but it's been consistent. And, as was recently pointed out with the pickup of Gossip Girl, networks are changing their standards for what's considered a hit show in the first place.
In other news:
- ABC has ordered six more scripts of Samantha Who? The show is the No. 1 new comedy of the season and did almost as well in the ratings this week as it did in its premiere.
- The CW wants three more Reaper scripts, even though this week's ratings were (gulp) a series low.
I'm a little surprised we haven't heard about any of the NBC shows yet. All of the other networks have picked up at least one key series (Back to You for Fox, Gossip Girl for the CW, Pushing Daisies and Private Practice for ABC, The Big Bang Theory for CBS). None of NBC's series has been a huge hit, but I figured at least one of them would have gotten the network's support by now.
The networks have announced their fall schedules, but which of the series will actually be worth watching? Throughout the summer, as I watch the pilots, I'll be posting my first impressions. A lot can change before a show makes it to air, so these aren't comprehensive reviews, just quick thoughts on how the shows look now. Today's installment: the Fox comedy "Back to You."
What's it about? A disgraced news anchor returns to the smaller market where he once was a superstar and must work again with his former co-anchor, who's not thrilled to have to share the spotlight with him.
Who's in it? Kelsey Grammer, Patricia Heaton, Fred Willard
The good: I'm an ex-"Fraiser" fan, and this show reminded me that I really do like Kelsey Grammer. For a traditional sitcom — and, don't get me wrong, it is very traditional — it had more laughs than I was expecting. It feels very professional, by which I mean that you can tell that everyone from the lead actors to the writers to the peripheral cast know what it takes to make a comedy work.
The bad: "Back to You" doesn't break any new ground; I've seen all these jokes and plot lines before. The pilot has a supposedly shocking twist that Fox begged reporters not to reveal, but it's the kind of thing that anyone over the age of 12 could figure out easily.
Will I watch? Doubtful, but not because it's bad, per se — it's just not my style.

Fox rounded out the week of Upfronts with their party to announce the new fall schedule. Parker Posey and Lauren Ambrose's (from Six Feet Under, the finale of which I have still not recovered) new show, The Return of Jezebel James, does not look nearly as funny as it should considering the cast, but I have hope. Rashida Jones from The Office was also there to introduce her new pilot, which is expected to be a midseason replacement. We'll see what that means for her in Scranton (more on that later). The hilarious Spike Feresten was also around to celebrate his "TalkShow." Happy it's renewed, but Fox should really give it a better timeslot! Check out clips from a bunch of the new shows here! Whee!
