Deadline reports that NBC is developing a sequel series to Remington Steele, which would follow Olivia Holt, Remington and Laura’s daughter, as she reopens the Remington Steele Detective Agency. This version is planned as a half-hour comedy but promises a similar mix of comedy, romance and mystery.
After two episodes, CBS has cancelled We Are Men. 2 Broke Girls, which has seen ratings dive this season, will move in its place. A Big Bang Theory repeat will function as a lead-in to Mom until November, when Mike & Molly returns to the schedule.
Jeffrey Katzenberg claims he offered $75 million to make three additional episodes of Breaking Bad which would have been released online in daily six-minute segments. Katzenberg says he imagined it as, ” the greatest pay-per-view television event for scripted programming anybody’s ever done.” However, he changed his mind after seeing how well the final episode wrapped things up. I have to admit, I think there’s room for an epilogue but only if the writing team thought there were stories worth telling.
ET Online reports that 90210 alum AnnaLynne McCord will be appearing on Dallas. I usually liked McCord, even if her 90210 character got hate-inspiring storylines.
Did the cast of Witches of East End manage to get even hunkier? Since TV Guide reports that Enver Gjokaj has signed up for a recurring role, it looks like the answer is yes.
FX’s Fargo mini-series has added Kate Walsh to the cast. She’ll play a “trophy wife and mother of twin boys”. I’ll keep my fingers crossed there’s a lot more to the role. Otherwise, that sounds pretty boring for the drama’s only major female performer, so far.
I don’t watch Shark Tank but I like Mark Cuban a lot more now that he claims he insisted ABC stop claiming a share of the products pitched on the show (even the ones that were rejected).
Money, the HBO pilot from Deadwood creator David Milch has added eight to its cast including Mamie Gummer, Ray Liotta and Billy Magnussen.
Tuesday’s ratings, Brooklyn Nine-Nine jumped a tick. I hope that’s enough to earn it some time. Meanwhile, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. saw its same-day ratings drop even further (though it was a smaller drop than last week). That might not be so bad, since it could reflect more viewers waiting to watch it.
Katie Couric’s daytime talk show could be facing cancellation. Overall, ratings are good but its on big stations in key time slots and many of those stations expected better ratings.
Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (ABC) 8:00 PM ET
Are you prepared to journey through the portal of Snow White’s magic crotch that takes you from Storybrooke to Wonderland? I have to admit, as much as I love Wonderland, the current state of the Once Upon a Time mothership has me feeling wary about this. Let’s hope this can capture the chaotic thrill of Lewis Carroll’s works.
The Big Bang Theory (CBS) 8:00 PM ET
You know that old saying, “Hell hath no fury like Sheldon after one of his favorite movies has been insulted”? (This show is in its seventh season, that should count as an old saying by now.) Anyway, Amy totally runs afoul of that warning after Sheldon shows her Raiders of the Lost Ark and Amy is all “Yeah, that was okay.”
Parks & Recreation (NBC) 8:00 PM ET
Now that Pawnee is taking Eagleton back into the fold, the two cities’ Parks and Recreation departments have to work together, and one of the Eagleton Parks & Rec employees is out comedian Billy Eichner. Sadly, while the episode is titled, “Doppelgangers,” there does not seem to be any shapeshifters in the story.
Glee (Fox) 9:00 PM ET
You did remember to stock up on the tissues for tonight, right? Even if Glee can be hit and miss, when it wants to drag an emotional reaction out of you, it will get the reaction it wants out of you. Judging from the song list, Glee really wants to make sure you feel a lot as it says goodbye to Cory Monteith and Finn Hudson.
Sean Saves the World (NBC) 9:00 PM ET
The adult women in Sean’s life think his daughter needs a mother figure, but will it be Sean’s mother or his cool co-worker? Since Sean doesn’t feel ready to help pick out a training bra, he’s got to decide soon.
Project Runway (Lifetime) 9:00 PM ET
We’re on the road to Fashion Week which, as always, involves a drive through Tim Gunn Visit Lane and the Rest Stop of the Final Elimination. A visit from Tim Gunn is probably a prize in itself.
Scandal (ABC) 10:00 PM ET
Did Daddy Pope creep you out with the way he treated Olivia? Get ready to see the origin of that messy relationship as tonight’s episode features flashbacks of her family’s history. At least now we know why Olivia is drawn to damaged people — all this time I thought she was recruiting cult members.
Elementary (CBS) 10:00 PM ET
Sherlock and Joan pursue an Edward Snowden-type, only to find themselves targeted by a hacktivist group. I don’t know if he’s playing the leaker, a hacktivist or something else but TBL-fave Christian Campbell is listed in the guest cast.
Filthy Sexy Teens (Adult Swim) 12:15 AM ET
Adult Swim’s latest primetime parody takes on pretty white kids with problems dramas with Casey Wilson and Sam Trammell as two of the parents.
