CBS Studios International spotlights Hawaii Five-0′s Alex O’Loughlin and Daniel Dae Kim

November 3rd, 2013 by

Press from all over the world was hosted by CBS Studio International at a three day event in in Los Angles. This annual event highlighted the CBS television stars to the international press. Alex O’Loughlin and Daniel Dae Kim were on hand to answer questions about Hawaii Five-0.

Daniel has loved the Lost reunions that have been going on recently on Hawaii Five-0, referring to recent appearances by Terry O’Quinn, Jorge Garcia and Henry Ian Cusick who have all appeared in Season 4. Spoiler Alert #1 – He teased that there may be a love interest in Chin’s future later this season.

The show’s star, Alex O’Loughlin, took the opportunity to thank fans, saying “without the fans, we’d be nothing – I’d be a carpenter!” He also clarified statements he made in a recent Associated Press interview. “It’s not my job, it’s my life!” he said, referring to being misquoted and portrayed as ungrateful in the article. During the panel, he took a call and put it on speaker phone. On the other end, a telemarketer offered a “free cruise” for answering a survey, to which O’Louglin responded by asking the room full of reporters, “Do we want to do this?” He is quite the jokester!

Spoiler Alert #2 -  according to O’Loughlin, Mama McGarrett will come back into Steve’s life but disappear once again. This will have a profound psychological effect on him. It is also possible that McGarrett is suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

For those lucky enough to see him in person, O’Loughlin offers up this tip about taking his photo, “Ask first, I’ll say yes”. Good to know.

Here are some photos of the panel from the CBS Studios International event.

Ride the Halloween party bus with Five-0! (Spoilers)

Steve & Danny ride the party bus

If the misty and remote field of seemingly abandoned cars isn’t spooky enough, Steve and Danny only have to wait for the bass-thumping party shuttle bus to roll up and unload a gaggle of boozed-up Halloween partiers. Offered a ride to the party, our intrepid heroes are soon up to their ankles in empty liquor bottles and stray undies; odds are, they’re going to find a lot more waiting for them at the end of the trip!

Kupouli ‘la airs Friday, November 1st at 9:00pm ET/PT on CBS. Five-0 and zombies! How can you resist?


Alex O’Loughlin awarded the Breakthrough Award from AIF

October 25th, 2013 by

The Hollywood spotlight shone on Aussies last night, as Alex O’Loughlin was awarded one of three Breaktrough Awards during the second annual Australians in Film Awards dinner. Other recipients this year were Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook) and Sullivan Stapleton (Strike Back and 300: Rise of an Empire). Australians in Film is an industry guild for Australian filmmakers and performers in the United States.

Now in his fourth year with Hawaii Five-0, which airs in multiple countries around the world, we can most certainly say that Alex has broken through and made it.

Congratulations on your award!

CBS riding the ratings wave with Five-0 Fridays

October 23rd, 2013 by

Looks like viewers still concerned about Hawaii Five-0′s move to Friday nights can rest a little easier. Based on the latest press release, CBS is pleased with the performance of its new Friday night lineup.



Both Series Notching Time Period Increases in Viewers and Key Demos

“Five-0″ Also Up in Viewers Over its Year-Ago Monday Performance

CBS’s Friday lineup is posting across-the-board growth paced by its new 9:00-11:00 PM crime block of HAWAII FIVE-0 and BLUE BLOODS, according to Nielsen most current ratings through the first three weeks of the season.

At 9:00 PM, the newly relocated HAWAII FIVE-0 has boosted the year-ago time period by +27% in viewers (10.54 from 8.28m), +64% in adults 18-49 (1.8 from 1.1) and +63% in adults 25-54 (2.6 from 1.6). HAWAII FIVE-0 is also up +14% in viewers versus its year ago Monday average (from 9.25m).

At 10:00 PM, BLUE BLOODS is posting year-to-year growth of +8% in both viewers (12.40m from 11.44m) and adults 25-54 (2.6 from 2.4) and +13% in adults 18-49 (1.8 from 1.6).

At 8:00 PM, UNDERCOVER BOSS is winning its time period in viewers (8.24m) and adults 25-54 (2.1).

Compared to Friday last year, CBS is up +9% in viewers (10.39m from 9.57m), +21% in adults 18-49 (1.7 from 1.4) and +25% in adults 25-54 (2.5 from 2.0).

Up Next on Hawaii Five-0 – “Kupu’eu”

October 23rd, 2013 by

Looks like we are in for a ride on the emotional roller coaster in this week’s episode.  If you haven’t seen the previews yet, there may be spoilers below.

Here is what we know about this episode so far:

  • the title of the episode loosely translates to “Fallen Hero”.
  • Peter Lenkov tweeted a teaser picture from the editing room of McGarrett and other Navy personnel in their dress white uniforms looking somber and saluting.
  • Terry O’Quinn also returns as Joe White.

We see Catherine in a gunfight and she takes a bullet.  Does the title refer to her?  Or could it be that our fallen hero is Joe White? Although, if you notice, there is another character listed with the last name of Harrington. Could that be Billy’s father? Was he in the Navy? Would a death in his family bring him and Cath closer together?

Regardless of who the fallen hero may be, you can be sure that Alex O’Loughlin will shine in this episode. He is outstanding in portraying McGarrett’s heartbreak and emotional turmoil.

From CBS


Terry O’Quinn Returns as Joe White

“Kupu’eu*” – As Catherine’s seemingly harmless surveillance job takes a deadly turn, Adam considers making the ultimate sacrifice to save Kono, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Oct. 25 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  Terry O’Quinn returns as Joe White.

Up Next on Hawaii Five-0 – “A ia la aku”

October 16th, 2013 by

Looks like the theme for this week’s episode is relationships.

Autumn Reeser returns as Danny’s love interest Gabby. Will Danny finally say the “L” word to her? Based on the preview clip, we know that Danny does not have much good to say about marriage.

After last week’s episode, it was quite obvious that McGarrett is starting to have doubts about Cath working with her old flame, Billy. With both Michelle Borth (Cath) and Justin Bruening (Billy) in this episode, I suspect McGarrett will be feeling further insecurity. I kind of like this vulnerable side of him.

Interesting note – the actor that plays the best man in this episode, Raleigh Craighead, was also the stunt man for Robbie Amell who played Billy Keats in Season 3 Episode 4 “Popilikia”.

From CBS



Rebecca De Mornay Guest Stars

“A ia la aku*” – Five-0 investigates the murder of a wedding crasher, and their prime suspect is the runaway bride.  Meanwhile, Danny makes a big decision regarding his relationship with Gabby, on HAWAII FIVE-0, Friday, Oct. 18 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  Rebecca De Mornay guest stars.
