Ed AsnerCan we all muster up one big, "Welcome back, Ed Asner!"? The 'Mary Tyler Moore Show' veteran is heading back to TV in a new CMT sitcom.

According to Live Feed, Asner will star in 'Working Class,' CMT's first scripted series, opposite 'Reba' star Melissa Peterman.

In the series, Peterman, a blue collar single mom, moves her family to the suburbs. There, she meets her curmudgeonly neighbor played by Asner. This is Asner's first series regular role since 'Studio 60.' He'll also appear as Warren Buffett in HBO's 'Too Big to Fail.'

"We are thrilled to have the iconic Ed Asner join Melissa and our entire cast as we launch our first sitcom," Brad Johnson, senior vice president of development at CMT, said. "Asner is synonymous with legendary television, and we know he will bring a classic comedic edge to our fresh family sitcom."

Steve Kazee, Patrick Fabian, Lachlan Buchahan, Cameron Castaneda and Courtney Merritt round out the cast. The 12-episode season 1 of 'Working Class' will launch in January.

But here's a touching story for you: Frank Moresco, a.k.a. Frank the Entertainer -- the hormonal crooner and breakout star of season 2 of 'I Love New York' and both seasons of 'I Love Money' -- is getting his own VH1 reality show entitled 'Frank the Entertainer ... in a Basement Affair,' which premieres Sun., Jan. 3 at 8PM.

The show attempts to answer the eternal question: Can a man find love from his parent's basement?
