The network's new age Western, which stars Timothy Olyphant as U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, comes back on Tues., Jan. 17 at 10PM ET. This season, Raylan finds himself facing off against dirty politics, a mysterious man named "Limehouse" and a lethal criminal from the Motor City.
FX also released the premiere dates of Season 3 of 'Archer' (Thurs., Jan. 19 at 10PM ET) and its new animated comedy 'Unsupervised,' which will air after 'Archer' at 10:30 PM ET.
It seems as though the cast and crew at 'Grimm' can rest easy for now. Deadline reports that the fairytale-based procedural has received an order for additional scripts. That doesn't mean it's out of danger yet, but it should avoid the ax for now at least. However, 'Prime Suspect' is still most definitely on the dreaded bubble, with Deadline quoting one source as saying NBC execs are "considering our options." Gulp.
Meanwhile, 'Community' stars took to Twitter to vent their spleen about the benching of their show.
The mystery drama, produced by J.J. Abrams, will pause production on new episodes to do reshoots for the first seven already completed, with plans to roll straight into filming the final six episodes once the reshoots are done.
But does this mean that the midseason thriller is in trouble?
'Love Bites' was expected to air Thursdays this fall in NBC's prime 10PM timeslot.
"Launching an anthology series, which breaks the form in so many ways, is a huge undertaking, and I strongly feel that I can be most helpful not showrunning, but writing. It just become clear that for several reasons, some of them personal, this change (and a little more time) is what we need to launch this show properly," Chupack said in a statement.
According to the report, NBC will instead air a brand-new season of 'The Apprentice,' which is already well into production.
Meanwhile, as previously reportedly, co-star Jordana Spiro is leaving the show due to her commitment to the TBS comedy series 'My Boys.'
One of the leads is Jason Biggs, who scored big a decade ago with the 'American Pie' franchise, while another lead, Sarah Chalke, has made us laugh on 'Scrubs' for almost 10 years.
On Mondays, beginning February 1, Accidentally on Purpose will be shelved... but only for a few weeks. Taking the 8:30 Monday slot will be the return of Patrick Warburton, the best thing in Rules of Engagement.
That's not all. On March 31, the 8:30 slot in which Gary Unmarried airs, will be assumed by Accidentally. That's not because Gary's being canceled; it will have completed its season order by then.
Just days after the announcement of its premature demise, word is trickling out that the show could join the network's midseason lineup.
Kathy Griffin was set to host the dance competition, which planned to feature comedic performances by stars of some of the most iconic dances of all time. That meant we'd almost inevitably see someone tackle Michael Jackson's Motown 25th Anniversary performance of the moonwalk, as well as plenty of other classic video and movie performances ('Dirty Dancing,' anyone?)
This news comes almost a year after the network dumped Milano's last shot at a sitcom, Single With Parents. Romantically Challenged almost ended up on ABC's fall schedule, reportedly due to the strong buzz surrounding Milano's performance. But the network decided to push it back, presumably to make room for its other new comedies, including Bill Lawrence's Cougar Town and Hank, starring Kelsey Grammer.
Finally, I need wait no more: The CW has finally announced Reaper's timeslot, and it's not half bad. Or, I guess it is half bad, depending on how you look at it.
First things first: it's not on Friday night, which is something I feared because CW's schedule is so wide open on that night. So that's good, right?
Culkin is a long way from the adorable Kevin McAllister in the Home Alone movies, but he's still got that charismatic appeal.
Since Kings is all about power, as McShane's nephew who has been exiled from the kingdom and returns after David's success defeating the Goliath of the show -- a killer tank -- I can see him perhaps as a Mordred character. In other words, an antagonist with issues.
Culkin isn't the only name to join Kings in some capacity: Brian Cox, Miguel Ferrer, Leslie Bibb and Michael Stahl-David are also on board for guest arcs.
Then it disappeared from the radar into the deep, deep depths of the TV pilot abyss.
However, according to the Hollywood Reporter, CBS is close to inking a deal to add The Man to the midseason schedule.
I think the phrase "hit or miss" is appropriate when it comes to television and Jeffrey Tambor. He's been involved with some truly great series (The Larry Sanders Show, Arrested Development), and some not-so-great series (Twenty Good Years).
Now, Tambor is heading back to the small screen to star in The Captain, which was recently approved for a six-episode, midseason run on CBS. Tambor stars as a retired writer whose apartment building is soon occupied by a younger writer, played by Fran Kranz. The series also stars Raquel Welch, Al Madrigal, Valerie Azlynn and Joanna Garcia.
Most television shows get a casting shake-up between the filming of the original pilot and, should the show get picked up, its eventual run. It happens for all kinds of reasons - networks don't like a certain actor in a role, scheduling conflicts, etc. In the case of Drive, characters are reportedly being taken in a "different direction."
So the show must be having problems, right? Wrong, at least not according to the network. ABC thinks the show is so good that they want to promote it outside the craziness of this crowded fall season. "You really need to focus, you need to spend money and you need to surround the audience with these openings," ABC Entertainment president Steve McPherson told the Los Angeles Times.
David Spade was on that list. He's a funny guy, but never the most talented person in that hoary group of former SNLers. But he's been resourceful and scrappy enough to keep things going for more than 17 years. Which is the long way for me to say that Comedy Central has picked up Spade's The Showbiz Show for a third season, which will begin airing in February. In addition to his cable duties, Spade will have a role in the upcoming CBS mid-season comedy The Rules of Engagement. So, as you see, Spade just keeps on keeping on. I'd make an Energizer Bunny joke here, but it's not 1990, so I'll refrain.
