Tonights premieres: “SuperNanny” on ABC at 8 and “White Collar” on USA Network at 10.
We are in the age of the “Gleek,” baby. FOX will release the first 13-episodes of the musical drama “Glee” on DVD by the end of the year, Variety reports. “Glee Season One: Road to Sections,” will be available December 29 with a director’s cut of the pilot and lots of special features.
Sebastian Roche will join FOX’s “Fringe” as a bad guy — a solider from another universe who’s part machine.
Lisa Kudrow will jump into a new project. She’s working with Dan Bucatinsky to develop a comedy for Showtimw based on the memior “Why the Long Face?: The Adventures of a Truly Independent Actor,” by Craig Chester. The show, for now called “Rapture,” chronicles the actor’s upbringing as the gay son of a religious household.
Adult Swim approved a pilot for a live action comedy produced by Conan O’Brien’s company. The show, “Eagleheart,” is about a washed up action star who gets a TV show.
Sarah Shahi will top the pilot for “Facing Kate,” for USA Network. She was previously the female lead on NBC’s “Life,” Cynopsis reports.
Finally, “Dollhouse” is not being included in the November sweeps for FOX due to poor ratings for the now struggling show — the latest Joss Whedon show with a rabid fan base that never seems to watch the damn show when it’s on TV.
When I saw this showâ€™s adverts, it didnâ€™t snag me. But hearing the comparison to one of my all time fav shows== Remington Steele, I might just have to find this pilot online somewhere, or find out when USA is airing it again. Thank goodness for cable TV shows. Theyâ€™re a breath of fresh air in a sea of CSI type shows that bore me to tears with their procedural stuff. I want characters, not just plot!
