Can Sean Saves The World take the gay sitcom torch and run with it?
Oh, the gay sitcom.
It’s a spectacular and welcome feat that we now live in a time when there are a plethora of gay characters on television but, also, we now have series centered around gay characters. Sure, we’re still stinging after the failures of last seasons’ excellent The New Normal and disappointing Partners, but this fall we’ve been given a new chance to have a successful gay series in Sean Saves The World.
In the NBC sitcom, Sean Hayes plays a single gay man taking on the full-time parenting role with his teenager daughter, Ellie (Samantha Isler) and learning how to juggle home, his demanding job with a new boss (Thomas Lennon) and a meddlesome mother (the wonderful Linda Lavin). Echo Kullum plays a co-worker at Sean’s job while Megan Hilty »

NBC has pulled the plug on Ironside and Welcome to the Family. Both shows’ replacements — Chicago Pd will replace Ironside while Community will take Family‘s place in the Thursday line-up — won’t air until January.
In better news, Fox has ordered a full season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and America’s new favorite gay TV cop. Even better, the show will get a spotlight by airing after the Super Bowl, along with New Girl.
CBS also ordered full seasons of its new comedies, Mom, The Millers and The Crazy Ones. Combined with Brooklyn Nine-Nine, I think we’ve got four shows that are potentially great but still finding their voices. I hope this will be enough time.
The Hollywood Reporter says that Amandla Stenberg, who many of you will recognize as Rue from The Hunger Games (or the idiotic, racist outcry) will be appearing on Sleepy Hollow, playing Orlando Jones‘ daughter. »

"It definitely does not feel like it was 15 years ago," says Messing. "It feels as if it was just two years ago."
As for the social impact that their NBC comedy had, McCormack says that they talk about it more now than they ever did at the time.
"We used to be asked about it while it was on and we didn't want to say anything then, we were a comedy and we were just trying to be funny," says McCormack. "But with time ... what I'm most proud of is that the show always treated Will's desire for the perfect man as equal to Grace's desire for the perfect »

Debra Messing and Eric McCormack reunited at an Academy of Television Arts & Sciences event honoring James Burrows, and the adorable photos from the meet-up are enough to give any "Will & Grace" fan pangs of loss.
The real-life friends starred as the titular characters in the hit NBC sitcom from 1998 to 2006. Though they don't make a habit of posing together on the red carpet, it turns out the pair does keep in touch.
"The few times we have [gotten together] in New York, it's usually just [Messing] and I having dinner, and we don't even make a reservation," McCormack tells Us Weekly. "We just kind of walk in, and there's always at least one waiter kind of dropping something, going, 'Am I on TV? Is this real?'"

NBC is remaking the BBC Three comedy Cuckoo, about a “middle-class family whose daughter comes back from a summer abroad married to a charming but infuriating hippie moron — a guy called Cuckoo.” Andy Samberg stars in the original, but if he can’t reprise it, what is Pauley Shore up to these days?

Monday evening was a night for “Cheers” among “Friends” old and new at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, where actors, directors and execs took the stage to pay tribute to director James Burrows’ 40 years in television.
Burrows sat at ease on stage on Oct. 7 as panel after panel of talent was ushered in from some of Burrows’ most celebrated shows. Jennifer Aniston, Danny DeVito, Beau Bridges, Bob Newhart, Debra Messing, Warren Littlefield, Chuck Lorre and Jay Sandrich were just a handful of the guests that regaled a packed house with tales from the set, the boardroom and even the blackjack table. And while Burrows was modest about his successes — including 10 Emmys and 4 DGA awards — his comic cheer squad were adamant about his enduring influence on TV comedy.
“There never would have been the era of must-see TV [at NBC] without this man,” former Peacock prexy Littlefield said.

Renewals are all the rage at TNT. The cable network has renewed three of its dramas: "Rizzoli & Isles," "Major Crimes" and "Perception." These shows join "Falling Skies" in shows that will definitely be back for more.

Starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander as a cop and a coroner, respectively, the show focuses on the two women's shared friendship and crime-solving abilities.
"Major Crimes," the spinoff to "The Closer" that is now in its second season on the network, has also been renewed. Ratings numbers for the police drama have averaged above 6.7 million viewers from week to week.
