MARY STUART MASTERSON'S MONTHLY TELEVISION APPEARANCES

 

 

"Television can be a real wasteland except when they are showing one of my movies!"

 

INTRODUCTION

Back in 1998, the Tavern put up this page so visitors could look up the cable schedule for MSM's movies on one Web page without having to surf off the site. Times have changed and most fans own DVDs of their favorite MSM movies, or they have them stored on a DVR machine. There might be some VHS holdouts out there, too. I'm keeping the cable schedule going because it is part of the history of the place. In the earlier days, a private service, TV Times-dot-com produced the schedule, but sold the service to TV Guide. The schedule no longer covers an entire month, but at most two weeks at a time. I'll keep updating it until the site closes for good, and there hasn't been a decision about that yet. Those who still like to see which MSM movies are running on cable, in case they want to tune in to one they do not yet own, can still come here and have a look. There is also a complete episode guide to Kate Brasher, MSM's first starring prime time television series, in the section below.

KATE BRASHER'S CORNER TABLE

 

Kate Brasher, the CBS drama series starring Mary Stuart Masterson, was presented by CBS television in the late winter/early spring of 2001. The show was not picked up by the network for the 2001-2002 schedule. There were six episodes aired from February 2001 through April and they are described in the Tavern's Kate Brasher Episode Guide page.

 IN THE SHOWCASE -- DECEMBER 2017

 

December 16, 2017--Time flies on with this report, which is a few days late. Between the holidays and a medical thing, I'm about five days late with this one, and I apologize for my tardiness. The good news is this is another cable television schedule of MSM's films and television performances that rivals some of those published on this site in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Four viewings of the popular Benny and Joon on three different STARZ venues is one of the highlights. Some Kind of Wonderful, another beloved film in MSM's filmography gets five showings on three different SHOWTIME channels. Fried Green Tomatoes, with Ms. Masterson in her Oscar-nominated role of Idgie Threadgoode, is back for another showing on HBO2. At Close Range, one of Ms. Masterson's early films, gets one presentation on EPIX DRIVE-IN, one of the better names for a cable network's sub-channels. In addition to the films, Ms. Masterson's role as NYPD psychiatrist, Rebecca Hendrix, is repeated on two Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episodes, Philadelphia and Ripped. MSM guest stars on Tom Selleck's Blue Bloods in the episode Absolute Power, which is being broadcast on WCBS, the flagship of the CBS network in New York City. WCBS is a channel on several cable and satellite systems. I watched it on a few times back in 1978 and 1979 during the years I lived in Greensburg, Pennsylvania.

Last, but certainly not least, is another episode of Blindspot, in which MSM will portray the Director of the FBI supervising the special FBI unit trying to decode the meaning in the tatoos on the body of one of the team's members.

That's all until next time!

Searching the Web for television information brought us to a Wiki page for MSM's Law and Order: SVU character, Rebecca Hendrix, ex-NYPD detective who became a psychiatrist. The link is just below.
