We've known since the spring that "Cougar Town" would be moving to TBS for its fourth season, and that the show would be returning sometime in 2013. Now we have a date — and, in typical "Cougar Town" fashion, a song to go tell you that date, sung by the cast and a bunch of very special friends of the show. Enjoy. And I look forward to the show coming back on January 8 (also Elvis's birthday).
Well, TV premieres are starting to roll out as we get deeper into September. The "Sons of Anarchy" premiere was last night, and here's Geoff Berkshire season premiere review. Meanwhile, after the jump I have quick thoughts on the second episodes of "Go On" and "The New Normal" coming up just as soon as I tell you what "Havana casual" means...
CBS is adjusting the way it schedules its Sunday primetime shows on weekends where the network airs an NFL doubleheader.
I reviewed NBC's "The New Normal" over the weekend. Now it's your turn. For those of you who watched the premiere tonight, what did you think? Was it funny? Offensive? Both? Neither? Did you like the Andrew Rannells character, or did you feel the two baby-as-accessory jokes sold him out? Do you want to watch Ellen Barkin spew racist and/or homophobic slurs 22 times a season for seasons on end? Did the celebrity cameo delight you or just remind you of various "Glee" moments?
Most importantly, are you going to watch again? Unlike most premieres this fall, that choice comes upon you almost immediately, as the next episode will be airing tomorrow night at 9:30.
Have at it.
"Homeland" doesn't return to television until Sunday, September 30 at 10 p.m., but Showtime made the first 20 minutes of the season 2 premiere available online and On Demand, both to whet the appetites of subscribers and to convince other people to sign up before the month is over.
The preview is supposed to be available on Demand on over 40 cable and satellite providers, including Comcast, Cox, DirectTV, Dish, Time Warner Cable and Verizon, and it's also online right now, as you can see below. Enjoy, and we'll be back to discuss the full thing on the 30th.
A review of tonight's "Doctor Who" coming up just as soon as I have balls in my trousers...
