Joanna Garcia(S01E01) In the first five minutes of this show, viewers are treated to a visual definition of the phrase "fish out of water."

I generally don't like any comedy that starts out with the the main character losing everything and starting her life all over again. In a drama, it kind of works that the hero has to go from town to town searching for something she lost. In a comedy, it just means that we'll be spending the next half hour watching the hero say things like, "What did I get myself into?"

Anne ArcherAnne Archer has joined the cast of the new CW series Privileged. She'll be replacing Marsha Mason in the role of Laurel Limoges, a wealthy Palm Beach resident raising her orphaned granddaughters. Mason appeared in the drama's pilot episode. Privileged is the series' newest title. At different stages it was called How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls and, in the network's recent upfront, Surviving the Filthy Rich.

The drama begins with twentysomething Megan Smith (played by Joanna Garcia) unexpectedly getting hired by Laurel Limoges to tutor the woman's teen granddaughters. Laurel is a widow whose fortune comes from a successful cosmetics empire.

Pilot News: Lucio, Mull, Archer, Grazer

Martin Mull in Fernwood 2niteShannon Lucio (The O.C.)has bounced back after getting axed from the perpetually transitioning Moonlight to land in Oaks over at Fox. It's a pretty good gig as the show will be run Shawn Ryan of The Shield, and the network has already given a series commitment. Oaks tells the story of three different families, in three different decades, all living in the same house. Not enough for you? Well, what if the house is haunted by a spirit that all of the families have to deal with? Matt Lanter (Heroes) and Bahar Soomekh (Day Break) have also been added to the cast.

Over at TNT, they know drama, and apparently are set to get to know Martin Mull. They've already picked up William H. Macy's Family Man, and now Mull has been added to the cast. He'll play the intellectual older brother of Macy's character, who used to run hotels, but now can't hold down a job.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Dennis and Dee Go On Welfare/Mac Bangs Dennis' Mom

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Dennis and Dee Go On Welfare

(S02E03/S02E04) If I had to guess, this show probably offends a lot of people. I think it offends me a little which is probably why I like it so much. So let's dive right in. I will say that I like this two episodes in a row thing but I'm pretty sure it slips back to just one episode next week. Anyway, the first episode was a little misleading. Dennis and Dee didn't actually go on welfare. They tried and ended up becoming crack-heads. Hence they're sunken eyes and saddened faces in the above picture. I believe the saying goes, "crack is whack." Ahh, if only they had known.

jennifer love hewitt; ghost whispererBoy, we were wrong about this one, weren't we? Remember last fall when TV Squad asked you which pilot would be cancelled first? A lot of us thought Ghost Whisperer was a goner. Not so. In fact, it just got picked up for a second season on CBS.

Executive producer James Van Praagh credits Ghost Whisperer's success to the mood of the country, "I think especially in a time of war people question beliefs, and I don't think people are going to religions as much for answers."
