TVLine Items: Will Smith Remembers 'Uncle Phil,' Good Wife Music Video Debuts and More
Will Smith took to Facebook Monday to pay tribute to his late Fresh Prince of Bel Air co-star James Avery.
“Some of my greatest lessons in Acting, Living and being a respectable human being came through James Avery,” Smith wrote. “Every young man needs an Uncle Phil. Rest in Peace.”
Avery died last week at the age of 68 following complications from open heart surgery.
Here’s a quick look at some of today’s other TV headlines…
• The Queen Latifah Show has been renewed for a second season. (PLEASE CONTAIN YOUR EXCITEMENT!)
• Sweet dreams are made of this: Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart will reunite as the Eurythmics in CBS’ The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles on Sunday, Feb. 9 at 8/7c. The special, which will air 50 years to the day, date and time of the Fab Four’s seminal first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, will also feature performances from Alicia Keys, John Legend, Maroon 5 and John Mayer.
• Just when you thought you heard the last of “Thicky Trick,” the “transformative” ex-rap ditty at the center of Sunday’s Good Wife, CBS goes and releases a music video featuring the cast and crew dancing to the track. Watch it. If for no other reason than to watch Julianna Margulies bust a move.
