If you’re among the many fans who were heartbroken at the news that iCarly was ending, you’re first break from grieving hits Nick at Nite tomorrow at 8/7c (your second comes at a future date when Jennette McCurdy and Ariana Grande move to the dual spin-off Sam and Cat).
Hitting the absolute center of the blurry line between Nick and Nick at Nite, Wendell & Vinnie is (in some official, technical sense) reportedly an airing of Nick at Nite, celebrated on the homepage of nickatnite.com, but when you click through to the show’s homepage, you find yourself at nick.com/shows/wendell-and-vinnie.
There’s a certain sense to that, not just because of the timeslot, but because the show itself (insofar as original programming goes) does make it somewhat tricky to point to exactly where Nick at Nite begins and Nick ends. This probably makes even more »

Here are four top series creators — Modern Family and Just Shoot Me‘s Steve Levitan, Lost‘s Damon Lindelof, CSI‘s Anthony Zuiker and Heroes, Crossing Jordan and Touch‘s Tim Kring — sharing what they really think about pilot season, network notes, agents, Nielsen ratings as well as Nikki Finke and Deadline.

It's Thursday. Friday's still quite a few hours away, and you're looking for something to help you pass your time. We totally hear you. The Internet has become a veritable theme park of time-killing activities, and the following one is a treat for sure!
As per the Pajiba website...
"Are you familiar with the movie and television trope in which someone is unexpectedly hit by a bus or other large vehicle? I’m sure that two or three instances of it immediately come to mind (and they’re assuredly in the video). We see it all the time (and it’s almost always effective), but I had no idea just how often it is employed until the noted video editor behind Harry Hanrahan compiled practically every instance ever of the trope into this supercut. It’s one of those brilliant video edits that blows up the trope, exposes it for »

We have been keeping our fingers on the pulse of CBS’s upcoming Stephen King adaptation called Under the Dome. In the news today, the 13-episode science fiction thriller has hired actress Aisha Hinds to play an interesting attorney with a problem. We’ve got the details.
Hinds will act in the role of Carolyn Hill, who is a strong, independent Los Angeles entertainment attorney who gets trapped in Chester’s Mill while driving through town with her partner and their daughter. There’s nothing like driving through a small town and getting sidelined by a giant dome. There’s no way through it, so the family is stuck. The drama in this vignette may be particularly striking because the couple was on the way to a camp for troubled youth, where they intended to drop off their daughter, explained Deadline.
Hinds has done all sorts of television roles. Her »

Miguel Ferrer's "NCIS: La" character NCIS Assistant Director Owen Granger is in line for a big promotion and some overtime as he's set to become a full-time regular on both "NCIS: La" and its upcoming untitled spinoff.
Ferrer first joined "NCIS: La" in a recurring capacity in the Season 3 episode "The Watchers," and now Deadline is reporting the actor is set for double duty assuming the spinoff makes it to series.
Ferrer joins Edwin Hodge as the first regulars on the proposed spinoff which follows a team of mobile agents solving crimes across the country and is expected to be introduced as an episode of "NCIS: La" airing later this season.
Ferrer was previously a regular on NBC's "Crossing Jordan, »
Exclusive: Miguel Ferrer is getting a major promotion on NCIS: La. Ferrer, who joined the series as a recurring midway through last season, is being upped to regular effective next fall. He also will be joining the proposed NCIS: La spinoff, which will start off as an episode of NCIS: La airing later this season. Ferrer will be regular on both shows, reprising his role as NCIS Assistant Director Owen Granger. Crossing over characters from the mothership series to a spinoff is a popular strategy at CBS. NCIS‘ Rocky Carroll, who also plays top NCIS brass in NCIS Director Leon Vance, recurred heavily on NCIS: La early on. And Kirsten Vangsness juggled both Criminal Minds and its spinoff, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, during the 2010-11 season. Crossing Jordan alum Ferrer is repped by Innovative. »
