WIN THIS! ‘Raising the Bar’ Season 1 DVDs

HOORAY! We have our winners:

The Televixen and Debbie E! Congrats legal drama fans, and thanks for entering. Your awesome box sets will be on their way to your mailbox shortly. Enjoy, and thanks again for checking us out at TV Screener.com!

And everyone, keep checking our WIN THIS! section … we’ve got lots more TV goodies coming your way!

The drama’s second season is currently unfolding on TNT (Mondays, 10PM ET), but if you’re still hankering to catch up with the episodes that started it all, here’s your chance. Thanks to our generous peeps at Buena Vista Home Entertainment, TV Screener.com has three copies of Raising the Bar: The Complete First Season on DVD to give away to our readers!

First season overview: First, Mark-Paul Gosselaar‘s hair was really bad. Really bad. It was long, shaggy, shapeless … not the fine locks we’ve come to know and love on the man who was Zack Morris and NYPD Blue‘s John Clark. (He’s chopped them off into a much more fashionable ‘do for season two … phew!). Anyhoo, Gosselaar’s Raising the Bar character is Jerry Kellerman, an idealistic public defender whose do-gooding efforts often lead him to clash with Trudy Kessler (Jane Kaczmarek), an ambitious judge who wants to become the next district attorney. In addition to the legal drama, there are also secret affairs – Jerry with his foe, prosecuting attorney Michelle, and Kessler with her law clerk Charlie – secret connections and just plain old secrets, including a big one about Charlie.

And among the DVD bonus features: Audio commentaries, a roundtable discussion with the cast and a featurette with David Feige, a real-life public defender and co-creator of the show (along with Emmy winner Steven Bochco), whose experiences inspired some of the series’ action.

New York magazine’s Vulture blog says Best Week Ever with Paul F. Tompkins may be canceled. VH1 says: it ain’t so.

– The Adam Lambert Rolling Stone cover hits newsstands this week, and yes, he confirms it.

Liam Neeson as Hannibal, Bradley Cooper as Faceman? Bring on The A-Team movie!

David Letterman is probably sticking around CBS beyond the 2009-2010 season.

Rachael Ray will be yakking about EVOO for a few more seasons.

– And My Name Is Earl might not be done just yet, either. TBS may greenlight 13 new episodes.

Jimmy Fallon‘s Webby acceptance speech: “Thank God Conan got promoted.” Clever.

– And you’ve got to hand it to Fallon and crew for getting Mark-Paul Gosselaar to don his Zack Morris duds. With that crazy ’90s cell phone, even!

Channel Surfing – June 8

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

Weeds premieres its fifth season tonight (10PM ET, Showtime). Check out my interview with Emmy nominee Elizabeth Perkins (also a star of one of my all-time fave movies, About Last Night) at AOL TV.

– Here’s hoping Jimmy Fallon really can pull off a Saved by the Bell reunion tonight. And PS – So happy Zach Morris clipped the ‘do.

– Is Charlie (Dominic Monaghan) alive on Lost? Okay, so then why’s he playing foosball in that new ABC promo? EW.com’s Michael Ausiello has the surprising answer. PS – IGN TV thinks the secret show is Flash Forward.

– More from Ausiello: There may be a Cagney & Lacey reunion on Burn Notice next year.

– Think you’ve got advertising skills? Put ’em to use pimping – ha – HBO’s new series Hung, about a middle-aged guy (Thomas Jane) who becomes a gigolo, and you might win $10,000.

– Cougars are all the rage on network TV, especially now that Erica Kane‘s become one.

Go and Prison Break star William Fichtner will guest star on the upcoming sixth season of Entourage, which premieres on HBO on July 12.

Kathy Bates, Tim Curry and Colm Meaney will star in Sci Fi’s Alice in Wonderland miniseries.

– Uncle Jesse – the Full House one, not the Dukes of Hazzard one – is itching to make a big-screen version of his cheesy, but endearing sitcom, sans Olsen twins and with, oddly, James Franco taking over his role.

Once and Again and My So-Called Life producer Marshall Herskovitz has a plan to radically change up the way TV pilots are sold. He ain’t tellin’ what it is, though.
