While freshmen shows are eagerly anticipating their full season orders, some have already succeeded in landing a season, or at the very least, more episodes.  NBC has gone ahead to order a full season of Kath and Kim despite its mediocre ratings.  In fact, the network recently expressed their thoughts on the American rendition of the Australian original created by Gina Riley, Jane Turner and Rick McKenna, saying that it is one of those shows which they truly “believe in.”Meanwhile, another network has stepped forward to bless a show for another additional episodes order.  On Friday, ABC ordered seven more episodes of Samantha Who?, which stars Christina Applegate as the titular character. Read more »

When Mary Kate Olsen guest-starred on a Samantha Who? episode around a month ago in November 10, a lot of viewers were pleasantly surprised that the girl can still act.  This shouldn‘t be a surprise, however, as just last year, the twin was on Weeds alongside Mary Louise-Parker as church girl slash druggie who got a little frisky with Silas Botwin (Hunter Parish).  On Samantha Who? Samantha (Christina Applegate) was sentenced to hours of community service after a traffic altercation, where she met Natalie (Mary Kate Olsen), a rebellious young woman who reminds her of herself.Recently, Entertainment Weekly reports that good ole Carol Brady – or Florence Henderson in real life – will be gracing Samantha Who?? to play the titular character‘s grandmother when the season returns this January.  According to reports, she comes to town to help settle an argument between Samantha‘s mom, played by Jean Smart, and aunt, played by Christine Ebersole. Read more »
After news of Mary Kate Olsen and Florence Henderson gracing Samantha Who?, it‘s someone from the famous tale of that sunken ship Titanic who will be making contact with Christina Applegate on the ABC series.  Last we checked, the Newly‘s decided to pack up and head out for a long-overdue family vacation to a lodge.  Meanwhile, Sam was met by some unexpected firend at the lodge, who turned out to be her childhood sweetheart.Billy Zane, 42, best known for playing snobbish Cal Hockley – Rose‘s fiancée – in the 1997 blockbuster Titanic, will assume the role of Sam‘s ex, Funk, previously played by Timothy Olyphant who joined the cast this year.  Olyphant joined the cast of the critically acclaimed FX series Damages in June; as a result, he had to leave Samantha Who?? and have Zane replace him primarily because of scheduling conflicts.  The sophomore season of Damages, which will premiere January, will see Olyphant as Wes Krulik, a fellow group therapy participant and confidant to Ellen who gets entangled in her life. Read more »
To make room for new shows, ABC has shuffled its Thursday night comedy block.  The new schedule, which was announced yesterday, effectively bumps off Scrubs at 8pm as it pairs up with the new series Better Off Ted every Wednesday beginning March 18. Scrubs, which revolves around J.D. (Zach Braff) as an attending physician with his own class of interns to guide and mentor after surviving his internship and residency at Sacred Heart Hospital, is no stranger to schedule changes.  During its run on NBC, the series went from one timeslot to another.  At present, Scrubs is airing every Tuesday at 9pm on ABC with back-to-back episodes. Read more »

If none of the new fall shows are tickling your fancy (though I‘d suggest watching an episode or two before damning most of them to your "skip" button), here‘s a comforting thought: The TV industry is a never-ceasing machine that will churn out new shows until the world ends or their ad revenue dries up, whichever comes first. (It will be the first one.)Oops -- did I say "comforting"? That sounded a little apocalyptic. But the bright side of the story is that today, in the heat of pitch season, four new and very different show concepts have been announced for development in the near or not-so-distant future, and at least three of them have exciting names attached. Let‘s take a break from looking at the fall schedule and take a look at them, along with a few other projects also in the works, shall we?  Read more »
