CBS still pimping Alex O'Loughlin (not that we're complaining)

The ladies have spoken, and CBS has heard us them. The network has signed a one-year holding deal with Moonlight star Alex O’Loughlin — with the hope of him starring in a new show to be developed by Mark Gordon (Desperate Housewives, Army Wives). No further details were given about the new series, so feel free to pitch Gordon ideas in the comments section. After you watch the video below, that is.

    Ahh.. thanks for the video. Haven’t watched that in awhile.
    Alex’s fans are just happy to finally hear some news.. and happy that we will get to see him on a weekly basis again. Just hope they get that new show up and running soon!!

    Ok Gordan here is my idea for Alex new show ….. hhmmmm how about if Alex plays a vampire better yet a Detective Vampire !!! yes yes and add a girl … a reporter! hhmm we could call her Beth ( for the hell of it ) and they fall in love only they think it would not be wise to be together … plus his best friend is this MASTER vampire that is like super rich …. well that is all I have for now but do call me! I have more ideas..

    Someone has way too much time on his/her hands not that I’m complaining. Yum.

    I’d watch anything that requires that man to be in various states of undress for an hour.

  • Catherine

    Yay, but I wish the new show would have him as a vampire…

  • Amy

    Good news. It would be better news if CBS had some sort of option on Jason Dohring as well. I don’t think I can get through a t.v. season without seeing him on a regular basis.

    And yay – tho why couldn’t they just continue Moonlite becaue now we have to wait.
    I think I’ve all ready seen all his movie roles – thanks Netflix!
    I guess beggars can’t be choosers.
    Thanks for ht video!

    wow I missed a few letters there – I guess my heart is all a flutter ;-)

  • Taylor Blue

    I am so happy to hear this because I miss Alex..but I would love to see Mick again.

  • Nat X

    Seriously, the dude who needs more work is the HOT DUDE from New Amsterdam. Terrible show (I gave it many chances), but that guy was droolicious. More, please.

    Okay, that is fine, but I am not done seeing Alex as a vampire. Moonlight has too many ideas to be explored for it not to continue. Moonlight is the show I want to see more of. I want to see more of the Moonlight Characters. What about the other actors I want to see more Josef and Beth too. I want to see Mick and Beth’s relationship grow. I want to find out more about Josef. What about Coraline? What other secrets do all these characters have? Another show for Alex is just “another show”. Moonlight was THE show for me. CBS just doesn’t get it. CBS does not care. As much as I enjoy Alex playing Mick St John, it was the idea of the show that got me interested. And Alex and the others just played their roles very well. Stop being so stubborn, CBS, and put Moonlight back on the air where it belongs.

    Wnen CBS cancelled “MOonlight”, I swore I would boycott the network forever. Thanks for the chance to see Alex in a TV show again. I will be tuning in.

    That is good news for Alex & I’m very glad for him.
    The sad part is CBS already had him in a hit series & they were too blind to see it. Yes, we loved Alex as Mick St John. For goodness sake! He created the Mick St John character we all love! We also love Sophia and Jason – they breathed life into their endearing characters. We love Moonlight the show &everything about it! I am so frustrated over trying to understand why Ms. Tassler has trouble understanding that we love Alex in the role of Mick St John on Moonlight AND everyone else associated with the show.
    If Alex is in another show, I will watch because I do want to support him. Hopefully it will be a show that really works for him and showcases his talent and not CBS trying to mold him into a role that matches their “CSI” family.
    Like many others, I am eagerly waiting for the 16 episodes of Moonlight to come out on DVD. Moonlight fans are hoping we get at least a Moonlight movie. There is much more of the story to tell.

    I think this is the only way CBS is going to get back some of the 7 or 8 MILLION Moonlight fans who swore never to watch anything on that network ever again, after the shabby way Alex, Moonlight, and the fans were treated by the unseeing Eye. In fact, this whole CBS/Moonlight business has left such a bad taste, I don’t even want to watch network TV anymore – thank goodness for Netflix! Not going to watch any new series – don’t want to have my heart broken again. And kudos to the fans who make all those wonderful fan-videos at YouTube! Although CBS’s EyeLab team did some very fun things to for the fans – I don’t include them in my condemnation of CBS. Thanks for the news. We’ll see what kind of cr*p show they come up with for Alex.

    CBS really doesn’t get it. Yes, we Moonlight fans like AOL, but we also liked Mick and Beth and Josef (and, obviously, Sophia and Jason. And David Blue.) We’re not so shallow that we’ll watch Alex in any piece of crap that gets put on the air…okay, wait, maybe we are. The thing is, we won’t necessarily LIKE it.
    I want Alex back on the air, but I want him back with Sophia and Jason (and David) in “Moonlight.” Take care of that, CBS, and we’ll talk.
