Jennifer Falls TV Review

TV Land‘s gimmick of creating new sit-coms that are throwbacks to the style and general effort of those classic shows from the ’80s and ’90s is one that is proving more and more a hit-or-miss venture. What at first seemed a no-fail stroke of genius, has now put out its share of failures, and though it has led to some truly great shows, we’re learning that you can’t always spin success out of the concept.

For every Hot in Cleveland, there’s a Retired at 35. For every The Exes, we get a Happily Divorced. Not that those shows were terrible. They weren’t. They just didn’t work out, and were perhaps not as solid in their construction as the real hits. Now we have Kirstie, which I admit seemed like a good idea on paper, and that one is mostly difficult to watch. This leads us to Jennifer Falls,

“The Fosters” Showrunners Respond to Questions About Jude, and “Arrow” Plans a Birds of Prey Episode

News

TV Guide reports that Jessica de Gouw will be returning to Arrow as The Huntress in an episode titled “Birds of Prey”. There’s a Black Canary in Starling City now, so does that mean Felicity will start calling herself “Oracle“?

Steven Moffat talked with Vulture about this week’s Sherlock and said this was the scene he wanted to see ever since he was a boy reading Arthur Conan Doyle‘s stories. “I remember being a 12-year-old kid thinking, Oh, why didn’t we see Sherlock be the best man? Please, can we see that? That would be the best story in the whole world, and I don’t care if there’s a crime in it or not, because it must have been the best and worst speech of all time!”

TV Land Moves Forward With Jennifer Falls Starring Jaime Pressly

I was never a huge fan of My Name Is Earl, despite being a big fan of most everyone involved, and Jaime Pressly has always been one of my favorites… for reasons that, to be completely honest, I don’t really understand. I couldn’t get behind I Hate My Teenage Daughter, but she almost made it work. With the right material, she has the charm and comedic timing to pull audiences in. Considering TV Land‘s solid record so far, this may be one to really watch out for.

That said, and considering TV Land‘s obvious bent toward the styles and sensibilities of sit-coms from 20-30 years ago, this one sounds like it could easily go too far toward the silly, milking cheap laughs at every turn (a la Mom). It will be interesting to see how the cast rounds out, but for now we have something to look forward to.

David Tennant Joins “Broadchurch,” Bob Newhart’s “Big Bang” Return and Can “Sean” Save NBC’s Thursday Night?

News

Here’s some tentatively good news for gay TV. Fox has ordered six episodes of the John Mulaney comedy series that NBC rejected last spring. The original pilot included Martin Short, Nasim Pedrad and Elliott Gould as Mulaney’s gay neighbor. Currently, it sounds like Pedrad and Gould might not be a part of the Fox series. Let’s hope there’s still a gay neighbor on the show.

Fox’s version of Broadchurch will have David Tennant reprising his role from the original series, though he’ll play the part with an American accent. Meanwhile, Dan Futterman will help run the show.

FX’s upcoming Fargo miniseries has added Colin Hanks to the cast as a single dad who is a police deputy.

Bob Newhart will be returning to The Big Bang Theory and this time he’s seeking revenge — against rival TV host Bill Nye.

TV on Tap: MTV Stays “Awkward.” and “Teen Beach Movie” Cable’s Second Biggest Movie

News

MTV has found new showrunners for Awkward., and has ordered a fourth season of the scripted comedy.

More Awkward., more Matty!

Now that I know that infoMania alum Sarah Haskins co-created the upcoming ABC comedy Trophy Wife, I’m a lot more interested in it.

The TV Land comedy pilot Jennifer Falls has cast Jaime Pressly for its lead role, TVLine reports. The pilot follows a businesswoman who loses her job after losing control of her temper and moves in with her mother. I just hope the script has better punchlines than I Hate My Teenage Daughter.

Starz has cancelled Magic City. First Boss, now Magic City. I wonder if this will be the last time Starz quickly orders a second season of a series, only to cancel it after that second season airs.

Maybe if Magic City included a little male nudity to go with all that female nudity…

Michael J. Fox at Center of NBC's Fall Lineup
Advertisers were given their first big glimpse of the fall TV schedule Monday as NBC launched the annual Upfront Week in Manhattan. The upfronts are lavish (and longish) network presentations staged for the ad community with the hope of vacuuming up all their money with the promise of great, popular shows. The truth is, of course, that few shows manage to be great and/or popular. One could even call this a sad truth. But, to be philosophical, nothing ventured, nothing gained - and NBC could use some gaining. After applying advanced critical theorem to the brief clips presented at Radio City Music Hall,
