[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots. I know some people will be all "These are reviews." If you've read me, you've read my reviews and you know this isn't what they look like.] Show: "Bad Judge" (NBC) The Pitch: From the title/narrative construction that brought you "Bad Santa" and "Bad Teacher" comes... "Bad Judge"! Quick Response: NBC's "Bad Judge" is the last Take Me To The Pilots entry for a show premiering this fall on a major network. I've saved it until the end for two good reasons: 1) As the title accurately teases, it's bad. 2) I'm reasonably sure that the pilot sent to critics in May isn't going to be the pilot that's going to air on NBC this fall. I think NBC liked the idea of doing a show with Kate Walsh and they liked the idea of ordering two pilots produced by Will Ferrell and they liked that the title is an easy sell. So Liz Brixius has been brought in to run the show and two major roles have been recast and another role is being pushed from the »

DirecTV’s all star cast show Full Circle has succeed in giving them some success. The show with Kate Walsh and David Boreanaz has been officially renewed for a second season. Each season of the series concept follows a different group of characters. This second season will follow the lives of adults at an Irish bar and their adventures as it weaved around family drama. It will hold 10 episodes and no cast has been announced yet. We can assume a 2015 summer premier is most likely when it will be released.
This show wasn’t hyped about much and was more a pet project for DirectTV. But it appears to be a good start to the network as they try to find their spot in all of the streaming services. The show will be even tested more with a new cast and new season once they release it. So far though, »

DirecTV is coming Full Circle again, renewing the relationship drama for a 10-episode second season, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Each season follows a group of adults whose lives are unknowingly intertwined.

It’s never easy being the new guy on the team — a fact Peter Scanavino‘s character will learn the hard way when Law & Order: Svu returns next month.

Veteran television and radio announcer Dominick “Don” Pardo, best known as the voice of Saturday Night Live, has died. He was 96.
Pardo passed away Monday evening, an NBC rep confirms to TVLine.
Pardo retired from NBC in 2004, but continued to provide the introductions for SNL — most recently, pre-recording them from his home in Arizona. He had only missed one season of SNL — the show’s seventh — giving him a longer tenure than even Lorne Michaels (who stepped away for five seasons).
“I can’t imagine the show without [Don],” Michaels once said, “and as long as he’s there, I stay young. »
The freshman finale of The Blacklist left us with plenty of unanswered questions — and from the looks of it, Season 2 will pose even more.
NBC has released a handful of photos from the drama’s Season 2 premiere (airing Sept. 22 at 10/9c), and there’s a whooooole lot that we need cleared up.
Among the head-scratchers:
* What could be inside not one, but two important-looking envelopes?
* Where are Liz and Red currently laying low? On one hand, the duo is sitting in plain sight on the front »

McPartlin will recur on NBC’s upcoming comedy Bad Judge as Billy the Fireman, our sister site Deadline reports. And because men in uniform always get the girl, Billy will be a love interest for Kate Walsh’s Rebecca — though he might find himself at odds with new series regular Ryan Hansen, who’s also a love interest for Rebeeca (aka the luckiest judge ever).
But seriously, I wasn’t kidding about McPartlin’s knack for playing life savers. »

The Katey Sagal-narrated rom-com — which stars Ben Feldman (Mad Men) as a dating site staffer who believes he is fated to be with Zelda (How I Met Your Mother’s Cristin Milioti), a disgruntled customer he just met (but perhaps crushed on at a years-ago concert) — is now available for streaming »
Television is full of surgeons, some good and some, well—let’s just say you wouldn’t want them to operate on you or anyone you know.
When Cinemax’s The Knick, a show about the early days of surgery, premieres Friday, viewers will meet yet another TV surgeon: Dr. John Thackery (Clive Owen), a gruff doctor who’s often up to his elbows in blood. Because The Knick is set in the early 20th century, Thackery is lacking many of the luxuries today’s medical professionals have. But he still proves more trustworthy than, for example, Grey’s Anatomy’s Leah Murphy. »

The latest addition to NBC’s Peter Pan Live! is sure to make the production a Smash hit. (Don’t judge the pun. You knew it was coming.)
Christian Borle (Smash) will pull double duty as Mr. Darling (Wendy and the boys’ father) and Smee (Captain Hook’s bumbling assistant), our sister site Deadline reports. This is a bit of a departure from the original Broadway production, in which the actor playing Mr. Darling also took on the role of Captain Hook. In NBC’s Pan, Hook »

Hansen — who is set to reprise his role of Dick C in the CW’s upcoming web-based Veronica Mars spin-off — replaces Bones‘ Mather Zickel, who portrayed Gary in the pilot but left the project for creative reasons.

Kate Walsh went to Disneyland, but it's hooters that ended up making her day -- as she cupped a pair of boobs on Splash Mountain.The "Private Practice" actress kept her hands well inside the log flume over the weekend -- and showed full support for the knockers seated in front of her during the ride's signature drop. Kate seemed unimpressed with the rack, but maybe she's just felt 'em before. Turns out the chick is a friend of hers. »
