Fox Orders More 'Napoleon Dynamite' & 'Allen Gregory,' 'Torchwood' Gets Good Start on Starz & More TV News
According to Vulture, 'Gregory' received an order for six new scripts and 'Dynamite' got seven.
More script orders could happen this fall if Fox continues to like what it sees.
Look for 'Gregory' to premiere Oct. 30 after 'The Simpsons' traditional 'Treehouse of Horror' special. 'Dynamite' is set for mid-season.

But let's face it: for a lot of people, it's also about the sexy celebs in fabulous clothes. When it comes to women on TV, wardrobe may not make the character, but it does make her more interesting. It doesn't matter if the lady never wears the same thing twice or never changes clothes -- we've got both represented here -- it's the style that adds substance.
From hip-hugging chic to hippie chic, eclectic couture and housewives demure, we came up with a definitive list of some of our favorite fashionable ladies in TV history.
Did yours make the cut, or was she out-dressed? Sound off in the comments.
The actress says she often gets recognized as "that girl" from 'Friday Night Lights' or 'Lost.' But fans of her role as madam Joanie Stubbs from the profanity-laden David Milch drama 'Deadwood' tend to be the most colorful.
"I definitely get a lot of quotes" from devotees of the profanity-laden drama, Dickens says. "And some of them, of course, are littered with curse words. That's always fun."
"I was waiting in line at a restaurant, and this group of people walk out, and this woman says to me, 'We love Joanie Stubbs,' and I was like 'Oh, thank you so much,'" the actress recalls. The woman walked out, "and her husband came through, and he goes, 'It's nippy on my twat!'" she laughs, quoting one of her character's lines on the show.
As usual, it's a list that will get the debate going. Shows that without a doubt deserve to be on the list: The Twilight Zone, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Star Trek, The Andy Griffith Show, I Spy, and Bewitched.
Shows that without a doubt don't belong on the list: The Flying Nun, Hogan's Heroes, and The Mod Squad. Sure, I enjoyed those shows when I was younger, but I really don't think they belong in the "best" category (I'll let you debate another show on the list, Batman - great or just "campy" great?)
Viewers were also into grittier fare like realistic cop dramas ('Ironside,' 'Adam-12') and war action series ('12 O'Clock High,' 'Combat!'), though there was plenty of classic sitcom fun on the airwaves, too, from 'The Andy Griffith Show' and 'The Dick Van Dyke Show' to 'Get Smart' and 'My Three Sons.'

If you blinked last year, you probably missed NBC's Crusoe. It's now on DVD, and it's one of those "season one" sets that also serves as a "complete series" sets.
If you're an October Road fan, the season two set contains a 10 minute bonus episode that acts as the series-ender. It would be great if more shows did that when they're canceled.

Oh man, does this bring back memories. My fellow Gen Xers surely remember the album and television special Free to Be You and Me, featuring a ton of stars, including Marlo Thomas (who produced the special), Mel Brooks, Alan Alda, Harry Belafonte, Shel Silverstein and many others. My sister and I used to listen to that album all the time, and hearing that title song again brought back a lot of memories.
Right now you can watch the complete TV special on TVLand.com, along with full episodes of That Girl. The series, along with the Emmy-awarding winning Free To Be You and Me special, will air as part of a 48-hour marathon the weekend of December 9. I'm going to watch the special now, since I didn't even know until recently there even was a TV special, I always thought it was just the record album. I guess I was too engrossed in our little Fisher-Price record player to pay attention.
