5 Shows After Dark: I'm Pretty Sure Kristen Bell Wasn't Pregnant When They Filmed This

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | January 27, 2013 | Comments ()


"19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards" on TNT and TBS at 8:00pm ET. Aw, it's kind of sad that some awards shows are big deals that end up on networks and have huge advertising campaigns and some end up on the channels I like to call "Law and Order Rerun Channel" and "Shitty Sitcom Rerun Channel" respectively.

"Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited - The First Doctor" on BBCA at 9:00pm ET. Three hour special presentation. I wonder if they're spending three hours on every doctor or if this first one is just three hours long. I'm sure you Whovians will be pleased either way.

"Downton Abbey" on PBS at 9:00pm ET.

"The Good Wife" on CBS at 9:00pm ET.

"House of Lies" on Showtime at 10:00pm ET. I wonder if they wrote Kristen Bell's pregnancy into the series or if she's going to spend a lot of the current season standing behind desks or cars. Which, by the way, is one of my favorite casual television watching games: picking out the pregnant ladies based on their wardrobe and position. "Grey's Anatomy" is one of the harder shows for this because they're all in scrubs and all standing at counters or on the far side of a patient on an operating table constantly.

Genevieve Burgess is seriously considering hibernating til March. Make that April.

    I think the funniest attempt at concealing a pregnancy was what they did with Debra Messing on Will & Grace because her character wasn't supposed to be pregnant yet. After a few episodes, it's like everyone just quit trying and let it happen. No hiding behind sofas, not a lot of sitting. Just throw Dave Foley in there and hope everyone is distracted by his weight gain.

    As if anyone cares who is preggers, unless you are still in high school? as long as you are marri----wait, that doesn't matter any more, either

    The worst was Cobie Smulders on How I Met Your Mother. Alyson Hannigan was pregnant at the same time and did an ok job hiding it. Cobie constantly held her purse in the middle of her stomach so it was like an elephant hiding behind a sapling!

    House of Lies will totally use Bell's pregnancy! those that are watching the show can see it a mile away!

    i loved the pregnancy on Christopher Titus' (WOW, 11 years ago?!) show from several years ago. they put his 'wife' in a wheelchair with a broken leg, always wearing black, and usually with a large purse or bag on her lap!

    I am currently paying the pregnancy game with Joelle Carter from Justified...Don't tell me if she's pregnant or not, I just noticed a slight change in her and then noticed the funny shots. If especially always from behind and no full-front shots...

    You forgot "Finding Bigfoot"! They are closing in on him. Any week know they will have him. It's very exciting.

    The best would be to have the pregnant lady hidden behind another pregnant lady. Like those Russian dolls.

    Bones was ridiculous until they finally wrote Emily's pregnancy into the story. Angela was pregnant & Bones wasn't? Nice try, wardrobe team

    Grace on "The Mentalist" has become more and more obviously pregnant over like the last month. At first I was kinda like "Huh, she's not doing much field work is she? And her rack looks better than usual." And tonight we were definitely up to "You're so pregnant your face is pregnant" so I'm assuming the character is going to go "on vacation" soon.

    I love the preganacy game too.

    When Ellen Pompeo (Meredith) was preggs they made her need surgery so she was in a hospital for like 4 weeks.
