This just in from varying media outlets – ABC has picked up freshman comedies COUGARTOWN, MODERN FAMILY, and THE MIDDLE for the “back 9” that all new series look for.

In other news – according to THR, NBC has apparently canceled one of my favorite shows from last year, BEFORE IT EVEN AIRED a second season episode – SOUTHLAND has wrapped production after 6 episodes!  More information to come…

I know I’m all about the videos in the past few days, and I promise I’ll get to actual reviewing here shortly, but in the meantime, check out this lovely promo for what is sure to be my new favorite show, Joel McHale’s COMMUNITY:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I love this show – I’ve now watched the pilot 4 times, and every time, I find it funnier!  Don’t forget to become a fan of COMMUNITY on Facebook so you can watch the pilot in the next day or so!  Let me know what you think!

MERLIN starts tonight!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I don’t know about you, but in general, I’m a  big fan of Arthurian legend.  The Knights of the Round Table, Lancelot and Guinevere, Merlin and the Sword in the Stone, etc.  So when I heard that NBC was going to air the BBC series called MERLIN, the teenage story of Arthur’s manservant, the warlock with destiny, I was really excited!  An idea taken from the SMALLVILLE creators that tells the backstory of these famous folks (King Uther, played by Anthony Stewart Head from BUFFY; Morgana, Guinevere, Merlin, Arthur, Lancelot), the show does a good job to set up the ultimate summer guilty pleasure.

For one hour each week, you can find yourself drawn into this world where dragon’s talk, serpents within swords are alive, and magic is as forbidden as it can be.  The first “series” ran for 13 episodes, the first of which airs tonight on NBC, and gives you insight into just how Merlin came to Camelot.  Next week’s episode is about the Knight Valiant and his sword from above.

Future episodes deal with a multitude of “demons of the week” type of stories, all culminating in an exciting season finale.  Is it the greatest thing I’ve seen related to Arthur?  No, that’s probably FIRST KNIGHT starring Richard Gere.  Bawled my eyes out…but it’s definitely worth at least a look-see!  In a completely made up rating system, it gets an A for effort, and a C+ for execution, with room to grow!

save-chuckThat’s right folks, the Save CHUCK campaign just may have helped our friends in the CIA, NSA, and the Buy More, score a 3rd season.  The official order is for 13 episodes (the better to create a brilliantly solid slew of episodes, I say), and a significant budget decrease.  No word about who is back, other than Zachary Levi (and probably Adam and Yvonne), but we’ll keep you posted as we hear more! 

Read more from my buddy Matt over at TV Guide!
