Rumored Fox Schedule: ‘Glee’ To Move To Thursdays, ‘Touch’ To Fridays?
Fox will follow NBC in presenting its fall lineup tomorrow. But unlike the peacock network, which is overhauling its schedule with four nights of comedies, Fox is not expected to make drastic changes. The network would not comment, but I hear that it will stick to its plan to launch an all-comedy Tuesday night with Raising Hope, Ben & Kate, New Girl and Mindy Kaling’s It’s Messy. Glee, which anchored the Tuesday comedy block for the last two years, is rumored to be relocating to Thursday after X Factor. In its sophomore season, Kiefer Sutherland’s Touch may join Fringe on Fridays for a sci-fi-themed night, while new medical drama The Mob Doc drama looks Monday-bound, inheriting the night of Fox’s veteran medical drama House and possibly airing with Bones. As expected, given its 15-episode-a-season order, I hear Fox is holding back its highest-profile new series, the Kevin Bacon »

'Animal Practice': Justin Kirk monkeys around in NBC's new comedy
A partial answer is provided in this clip, which shows Kirk's Dr. George Coleman clashing with Dorothy Crane (Amy Huberman), a former girlfriend who's just taken over her family's animal hospital. Seems George is very good with his patients but doesn't much care for the humans who come with them.
"Animal Practice" will air at 8 p.m. Et Wednesdays in the fall. What do you think of the clip? »
'Survivor: One World' finale: Who will win the million dollars? Vote now!
It's that time again - the three-hour "Survivor" finale extravaganza. This year, the "One World" Final 5 is down to five women, a feat that has never before been accomplished on the show, so hat tip to the ladies for kicking butt and taking names all season.
But who is going to walk away crowned the Sole Survivor? Is it going to be puppetmaster Kim, who has fairly well dominated the game from early on? Or her sidekick Chelsea, who is likable and pretty and who has not made as many enemies? Or Sabrina, who is no dummy in her own right and is probably well-liked amongst the jury members?
Maybe the gregarious Alicia? We'd call her a dark horse. If she makes the Top 3 and has a good argument for why she should win, she might be able to swing some votes her way. Christina is probably a long-shot. She seems like a nice girl, »

'Invention Hunters' Steve Greenberg: 'Im very big on finding a good meal'
"Gadget Nation" author and "Innovation Insider" Steve Greenberg grew up in a family that celebrates invention. With a patriarch who can turn anything into a lamp -- "My mother used to joke that if I stayed still too long, he would turn me into a lamp," he cracks -- the entire clan can't help but poke and prod to see how things are crafted.
"Take us anywhere, and we're knocking on stuff and turning it upside down," Greenberg tells Zap2it. "We learned that from my dad. It's very much a part of who I am."But it isn't the family's primary passion.
"I'd say we're restaurant people first, inventors second," Greenberg says, chuckling. "I mean, we're the kind of family that, when we're eating at a restaurant, we're talking about the next restaurant we're going to. I'm very big on finding a good meal."
So it's only natural that »
'Chicago Fire': Taylor Kinney's fiery temper comes to NBC
Dick Wolf, the man who brought "Law & Order" and ratings to NBC back in the 1990s is coming back to NBC. This time with "Chicago Fire," which pits "House's" Jesse Spencer against Lady Gaga's on-again/off-again boyfriend ("The Vampire Diaries'" Taylor Kinney) in a Chicago-set firehouse drama.
Also starring are Eamonn Walker ("The Messenger"), Charlie Barnett ("Law & Order: Svu"), David Eigenberg ("Sex and the City"), Monica Raymund ("The Good Wife"), Lauren German ("Hawaii Five-o"), Teri Reeves ("Three Rivers") and Merle Dandridge ("Sons of Anarchy").
In the clip above, Spencer and Kinney butt heads over the loss of one of their team members -- they blame each other.
But Walker steps in with a little sage advice: "We all lost Artie -- a month ago Friday. And that ain't changing. So maybe we should."

'Mad Men' Recap: All's Fair in Love and Advertising
This week on Mad Men, everyone is trying desperately not to be replaced by a younger and better model. Betty fights her feeling of inferiority against Megan by dropping the Anna Draper bomb on poor unsuspecting Sally and her color pencil family tree. Don fights the million idea machine that is new hire Ginsberg and his own fears he might be irrelevant. Roger continues his fight against Pete with Jane as collateral damage. Meanwhile, Pete's coup de grace with the Sunday New York Times fails him. »
'Guys with Kids': Jimmy Fallon's take on parenting
Jimmy Fallon doesn't have any children. Which may have something to do with why the sitcom he's executive producing for NBC's fall lineup -- "Guys with Kids" -- may not be a hit with its target audience, guys with kids.
Still, all we've seen so far is a short two-minute clip and there's nowhere to go but up.
In it, co-stars Jesse Bradford, Zach Cregger and Anthony Anderson sit in a bar -- each with a baby strapped to his chest -- and rap about daddy dilemmas. Like what to do when you need to give your kid whole milk, but the bar only has 2 percent. Real dads wouldn't need to go to a committee to solve that problem -- but these guys do.
They also complain about other parental annoyances, like not sleeping and fatique-induced forgetfulness. All stuff that may have been more comically ironic even a decade ago, »
'Veep' Julia Louis-Dreyfus: 'There is no higher desire to make a statement'
Zap2it: Does "Veep" have a message for viewers other than just making them laugh?
Julia Louis-Dreyfus: At the end of the day we are just trying to entertain and hopefully make people laugh, because it is a comedy show, after all. There is no higher desire to make a "statement" about politics, other than to say it's important to remember these are just people trying to do a job, just as you and I do. That's what is both humanizing and scary about the whole process.
Zap2it: What surprised you most about a vice president's job?
Julia Louis-Dreyfus: This may sound simplistic, but what sort of surprised me is just the mundane realities of life in that office and the cruel realities of that position -- to an extent, any position -- in government, actually. When I spoke to people who had been in that office »
'Go On': Can Matthew Perry bring back must-see TV for NBC?
In "Go On," Matthew Perry plays a quick-talking sportscaster taking time off from work after losing his wife in a car accident. Apparently the comedy part comes in when Perry is pushed to seek counseling and ends up shaking up a support group for the recently widowed with his biting sarcasm.
The show, from executive producer Scott Silveri ("Friends"), is Perry's latest attempt at making a comedy comeback. Last season's ABC comedy, "Mr. Sunshine," ran for just three months in spring 2011 as a midseason replacement before it was scrapped. While critically acclaimed, Perry's "Studio 60 on the Sunset Stri," was no match for "30 Rock" in its own fledgling season and was canceled despite five Emmy nominations.
"Go On" co-stars Laura Benanti ("The Playboy Club"), Julie White ("Transformers"), Suzy Nakamura ("Dodgeball"), Khary Payton ("General Hospital") and Allison Miller ("Terra Nova"). It will air Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. Et starting in the fall. »
'The New Normal': Ryan Murphy tries unconventional family comedy for NBC
Enter Goldie (Georgia King), who's willing to be their surrogate in hopes that she'll be able to give her own daughter, Shania (Bebe Wood), a better life. Ellen Barkin also stars as Goldie's mom, who apparently isn't quite as open-minded as her daughter.
(From the looks of things, Barkin will be the unfiltered, Sue Sylvester-like character of "The New Normal.")
'The Celebrity Apprentice' Recap: A Race to the Finish
This week on The Celebrity Apprentice, the episode picks up where it left off last week -- a second firing after Lisa was sent home last week. And really, Donald Trump wastes no time in letting go ... Aubrey! Wow, the two remaining women fired just like that. Trump cites her transparency that was brought up during her interview, and also her inexperience/age compared to Arsenio and Clay.
So there you go, it's Arsenio and Clay battling it out in the finals. May the best man win! »
'Revolution': J.J. Abrams and Jon Favreau turn out the lights
Producer J.J. Abrams has had good luck with shows that start with a plane falling from the sky, so it's no surprise that one of the first images we see in the clip for "Revolution" is just that -- a jetliner plummeting to the earth after the world's electricity is suddenly turned off.
Take a little "Lost," add in a touch of "The Hunger Games," "Escape from New York" and "Battlestar Galactica," and you'll get the general vibe of "Revolution" -- the result of a collaboration between Abrams and "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau.
The series stars Billy Burke ("The Twilight Saga"), Tracy Spiridakos ("Being Human"), Anna Lise Phillips ("Terra Nova"), Zak Orth ("Romeo + Juliet"), Graham Rogers ("Memphis Beat"), J.D. Pardo ("A Cinderella Story"), Giancarlo Esposito ("Breaking Bad"), David Lyons ("The Cape"), Maria Howell ("The Blind Side"), Tim Guinee ("Iron Man") and Andrea Roth ("Rescue Me").

Watch: Yes, It's Another Great Trailer For Aaron Sorkin's 'The Newsroom'
While summer is the season to hit the multiplex for the most sensational big screen entertainment you'll see all year, HBO is giving you at least one reason to stay at home on Sunday nights: Aaron Sorkin's latest series "The Newsroom." A brand new trailer has arrived for the show and it's increasingly looking like a major TV comeback for the Academy Award-winning writer, after his last network effort "Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip" fizzeld out after a single season. Another behind-the-scenes tale, this show follows beleagured Acn news anchor Will (Jeff Daniels), who faces a major change when his co-anchor bails for another show and takes most of the staff with him. With the pressure on him to carry the show and deliver ratings, while trying to get along with the staff, sparks fly. So far, this looks great -- hilarious, politically charged and carrying some serious dramatic weight. »

'The Client List's Jennifer Love Hewitt: 'There are a lot of scenes where I'm fully clothed'
Zap2it: Especially on the heels of your relatively conservative "Ghost Whisperer" character, "The Client List" is taking your image in quite a different direction. What prompted you to make that decision?
Jennifer Love Hewitt: I felt this was a great character to be able to do that with, because she's really so full. If she was just a "happy endings" specialist, I don't know that would have been as worth it for me. Because of the flip side of it -- she's also just this Texas mom doing the best she can, with a reason for doing this -- it felt like a good time for me to shake things up a little bit.
Zap2it: Do you feel your fans have accepted that, based on the show's initial ratings?
Jennifer Love Hewitt: Being in the business that you love for a long time is great, and »
'Community': NBC head talks move to Friday, creator Dan Harmon's status
"Community" is moving to a new night in the fall, decamping from its Thursday home to Fridays (along with "Whitney"). But it could make the move without series creator Dan Harmon, whose contract is up at the end of this season.
About the move to Fridays, NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt says NBC was looking to expand its comedy footprint -- which it did. Four new half-hour shows are joining six returnees, and as the schedule shaped up, "Friday was sort of an added benefit."
"We love 'Grimm' -- it's a show that got some real traction at 9 o'clock on Friday, and we thought 'Grimm' is going to be helped further by scripted shows in front of it," Greenblatt says. "There's no other comedy on Friday at 8, so it's a wide-open genre. It just seemed like the opportunity was there to keep expanding."
As for Harmon, he is at the »
Watch: Extended Trailer For J.J. Abrams-Produced, Jon Favreau-Directed Show 'Revolution'
Well, pilot season is just around the corner and the networks are beginning to unveil their clips and trailers hoping to start getting some buzz brewing about their newest offerings. But the reality is that of the shows that make it to air, many won't last past a season, but if there is one person you can't count out it's J.J. Abrams. As a writer/producer he's been behind massively successful shows like of "Lost," "Alias," "Felicity" and "Fringe," and his latest show, "Person of Interest," was recently renewed on CBS (though "Alcatraz" was canceled). But his track record is strong and his latest venture, the high concept, sci-fi-ish drama "Revolution" has the ingredients of another hit. NBC has dropped an extended four-minute trailer for the pilot that boasts "Iron Man" director Jon Favreau behind the camera. And visually, it's impressive and certainly, no expense seems to have...

'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Recap: The Meanest Angel Ever
Last time we saw the Housewives, they attended a disastrous Solstice party. Now, the aftermath. Kathy and Caroline, because they have little else to discuss, tell their husbands about it in the privacy of their own camera-filled cars. In an interview, Caroline calls Melissa, "a younger, better version of [Teresa,] and that's the problem." In the Wakile car, Rich suggests Kathy drop Teresa, who continues to be in denial about any of her problems. Albert, Caroline's husband, says he wants to be Switzerland, because when it comes to drama Switzerland don't give a f**k.
Rich, somewhat wisely, compares Teresa to arm cancer or something. Basically an arm, like family, is close, but when you get cancer in your arm you cut it off (is that what you have to do? Cut the whole arm off? I hope I never get arm cancer). Basically, even though she's family and Kathy wants to make peace, »
