Nation, “Stephen Colbert” has left the building.

New Girl Casts Nasim Pedrad as Winston's Training Officer

13 hours ago

Things are about to get a little dicey — emphasis on “little” — in Winston’s ongoing journey toward becoming an Lapd officer on New Girl.

Fox’s Tuesday-night comedy has cast Saturday Night Live grad Nasim Pedrad as Aly, the new training officer/partner for Lamorne Morris’s goofball roommate, TVLine has learned exclusively. Aly’s diminutive stature will apparently be a cause of consternation for Nick and Coach, who are already freaking out about Winston’s recent graduation from the police academy and impending entry into the field.

Pedrad’s episode, titled “Shark,” will air Tuesday, Jan. 6 (9/8c) — and we’ve got first-look photos below. »

Once Upon a Time Scoop: Eion Bailey to Return as 'Pinocchio' in Season 4

13 hours ago

Once Upon a Time is knocking on wood — again.

Eion Bailey will reprise his role as August (aka Pinocchio) in multiple Season 4 episodes, starting with Episode 14, which is titled “Enter the Dragon,” TVLine has learned.

In Season 2’s “Selfless, Brave and True,” August died (from a magical Taser wound?) while trying to warn Emma about Peter Pan’s minion Tamara. Blue was able to save him, but only in the form of his seven-year-old self.

Since August is just a young lad now, it’s likely Bailey will appear only in flashbacks — perhaps some connected to the storybook’s sought-after author? »

This despite rumblings, from as recent as September, that Imagine Entertainment chairman Brian Grazer was looking to revive the 24 feature film idea.

CBS’ Survivor Cycle 29 finale on Wednesday night drew 9.7 million total viewers and a 2.4 demo rating, steady week-to-week but ticking down from its previous two closers.

Over on NBC, the Michael Buble Christmas special (7.4 mil/1.3) popped 48 percent in audience versus last year while steady in the demo. The Sing-Off (5.1 mil/1.3) was down from both last December’s opener (8.4 mil/2.4, on a Monday) and its year-ago telecast (5.5 mil/1.6, on a Wednesday).
