    EXCLUSIVE: A famous 1980s title is eyeing a comeback. ABC has nabbed Magnum, a sequel to the classic series Magnum P.I. that starred Tom Selleck, with a script commitment plus substantial penalty. The project, from Leverage creator John Rogers and Eva Longoria’s UnbeliEVAble Entertainment, will keep the fun, action-packed style of the original as it follows Magnum’s daughter, Lily “Tommy” Magnum, who returns to Hawaii to take up the mantle of her father’s PI firm. She and her tribe of friends mix tropical beaches with the seedy underbelly of international crime and modern espionage, even as she tries to unravel...

    Actor Tom Selleck has been stealing truckloads of water from a hydrant for his 60-acre ranch and avocado farm in California, according to a lawsuit filed by a water district. The Magnum P.I. star and his wife Jillie Mack are accused of dispatching a white truck to a neighboring valley at least 12 times since 2013 to retrieve gallons of precious water, which is in short supply during the historic drought. To catch him, Calleguas Municipal Water District has spent $22,000 on a private investigator, the Sun Sentinel reported. But even after they were issued with a cease-and-desist notice, the...
  • Tom Selleck: 'Blue Bloods' is 'as good as any dramatic show on television'

    LOS ANGELES – Despite being Friday night's most-watched program, "Blue Bloods," which averages 13.69 million viewers, doesn't get the ink from the critics that other shows do, and series star Tom Selleck, who plays Police Commissioner Frank Reagan, doesn't understand the reason. "The work on the show is superb," Selleck tells "It is truly an adult drama. I have no idea why. I think that kind of perception is fostered by people who haven't really seen it. I say that we are as good as any dramatic show on television." This Friday, March 13, "Blue Bloods" airs an episode...
  • CBS Drives Away 'Anti-Gay' Catholics

    While the cultural commissars keep throwing praise and awards at raunchy shows on trendy Internet streaming channels, CBS has a series of highly-rated traditional police or military shows that get no attention or respect. "NCIS" keeps spinning off shows -- this year in New Orleans -- and "Blue Bloods" is a consistent Top 20 performer despite airing on Friday night. You won't see its star Tom Selleck at Emmy awards time. "Blue Bloods" deals with an Irish-Catholic family of cops, headed by New York police commissioner Frank Reagan, played by Selleck. Some Catholics became fans of the show as a...

    Rosie feels bad about Selleck ambush By SEAN DALY Last Updated: 12:17 PM, October 6, 2011 Posted: 11:20 PM, October 5, 2011 Rosie O’Donnell has one big regret. Days before the launch of “The Rosie Show” on the struggling OWN network, the controversial talk-show host says she is still kicking herself over a famous, televised ambush of Tom Selleck. “In hindsight, if I had to redo [it], I would do it differently,” she admits. He is “a kind man, who, for the rest of his life, has to be associated with me and that one event.”

    Your local ComCast or CATV has it on Basic Cable on CBS Affiliate, at 10pm EST, and it's also available on CBS' Site, but you have to poke around under "Shows" Past Episodes, in their entirety, are availble on CBS, under "Shows", in chronological order. Besides the 8 amazing DVDs of "Jesse Stone Mystery Series", this may be Selleck's best effort. "Magnum PI" was a good 80s show - and I was an extra on "Little Girl Who" in the airport shootout scene, with Tom, his Wife and kid. Fun times.

    It's difficult to find quality entertainment on Netflix streaming. Here's three Tom Selleck movies that, in my opinion, qualify: Jesse Stone, Night Passage / Jesse Stone - Stone Cold / Jesse Stone - Death in Paradise. Great entertainment, no PC agenda.

    The Washington Post ^ | 8/18/10 | Kathleen Parker
    It is hard to imagine that anything has gone unsaid about the so-called Ground Zero mosque, but an important point seems to be missing. The mosque should be built precisely because we don't like the idea very much. We don't need constitutional protections to be agreeable, after all. This point surpasses even all the obvious reasons for allowing the mosque, principally that there's no law against it. Precluding any such law, we let people worship when and where they please. That it hurts some people's feelings is, well, irrelevant in a nation of laws. And, really, don't we want to...

    George Clooney is being hotly-tipped to play Magnum PI in a new movie. Film bosses believe the handsome star would be perfect as the suave private investigator, played by Tom Selleck in the classic TV show. A source is quoted in Britain's Daily Star newspaper as saying: "He is a big fan of the original series. The part is his if he wants it." Meanwhile, George - who split from on/off girlfriend Lisa Snowdon last year - recently revealed he thinks 2006 will be the year he settles down. The 44-year-old heartthrob - renowned for keeping his romantic life under...

    UPDATE POST ELECTION Cowboys still depend on their neighbors for help. They expect their neighbors to call on them in times of need. This is called "neighboring" a practice that has endured since the days of the pioneers. In Washington, DC this is called reaching across the aisle. It is time for all Americans to come together and work on the problems we all face. A COWBOY'S IN THE WHITE HOUSE. MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN COWBOYS.

    LOS ANGELES — A film paying tribute to Dwight D. Eisenhower (search) and his World War II D-Day achievement required precise casting, said writer-producer Lionel Chetwynd. So how did Tom Selleck (search), definitely not an Eisenhower lookalike, end up with the title role in A&E's "Ike: Countdown to D-Day" (search)? It was all about character, Chetwynd said. "This is about the loneliness of command, the extraordinary courage it takes to command men and send them into battle and not lose your humanity. ... It's the story of a man of courage, confidence and decency. "That's what was important in the...

    More and more celebrities using fame to back causes 12/26/2002 Associated Press NEW YORK - From the moment Sean Penn arrived in Baghdad, eager to advance the cause of peace, he was doomed - a dead man talking. He was a celebrity, like so many other celebrities who have waded into the treacherous waters of politics or international relations. So he walked gingerly - he was there, he said, "to learn and not to teach." He avoided reporters. And he was careful not to say or do anything that would cause a meltdown at home. So the Iraqis did...
