Law & Order: SVU Debate: Who Should Replace Chris Meloni Next Season?

25 May 2011 11:51 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

I’m not happy that Law & Order: Svu‘s Chris Meloni is retiring his badge after 12 years. Not happy at all. But rather than throw myself a pity party to which you would have all been invited, I’ve decided to channel my negative energy into something positive: finding my girl Mariska Hargitay a new partner before she steps away from the beat full-time at midseason. Here are, for my money, the folks Dick Wolf should be courting:

Laid off TV stars: Who is out of job next season

20 May 2011 2:48 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Charlie Sheen isn’t the only high-profile actor who’s out of job next season.

Networks chased after a slew of stars during pilot season, then left a bunch out in the cold once they decided which series were making their schedule. Among the survivors are Tim Allen (Last Man Standing), James Van Der Beek (Apartment 23), Christina Applegate (Up All Night) and Sarah Michelle Gellar (Ringer). But for every name that made the cut, there’s at least two that are back to pounding the pavement for work.

One of the biggest names left in the cold is Ethan Hawke, »

ABC Cuts Schedule Deep – Say Goodbye to ‘V’ and ‘No Ordinary Family’

13 May 2011 1:53 PM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

The message is pretty clear this upfront season: networks would rather gamble on a fresh crop of shows than bring back modest performers.

ABC has announced that it’s jettisoning six of its prime-time series and BuzzFocus readers will be sad to hear that V and No Ordinary Family were part of the bloodshed. While this move is certainly one that many fans expected (and prepared themselves for), it still stings nonetheless. V had recently made the trip to WonderCon to campaign for a third season, but it clearly wasn’t in the cards for the suits at ABC.

As for No Ordinary Family, when series star Michael Chiklis joined CBS pilot Vince Uncensored, many took the move as the writing being on the wall for the superhero show. While the show didn’t bust ‘em up in the ratings department, it still had a decent first season that many »

Fall 2011-12 drama and comedy pilots: What's the next hit (and what's headed to the trash bin)

10 May 2011 2:46 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

After spending untold amounts of cash on hundreds of dramas and comedies — most of which will never make it to your living rooms — the five broadcast networks will begin announcing in New York next week which projects are good enough to earn a coveted fall pickup. (NBC and Fox will present their fall schedule to advertisers on Monday, followed by ABC on Tuesday, CBS on Wednesday and the CW on Thursday).

Buzz is already strong for several projects (for more on the hot ones, click here). But every year, we always wonder what diamond-in-the-rough was left on the cutting room »

TV Castings: Three More Join Broadcast Pilots, 'Titanic' Miniseries Locks In Cast

14 April 2011 10:50 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Cynthia McWilliams, who is recurring on Fox's The Chicago Code, has landed a lead role on CBS' untitled sports radio show pilot. The multicamera comedy, from veteran writer-producers Bill Martin and Mike Schiff, is inspired by Espn personality Colin Cowherd’s outspoken sports talk show. It centers on Nick (Damon Wayans), an egotistical sports-radio host with a quick wit and cocky likability. McWilliams will play his wife, the mother of two kids from a previous marriage and stepmom to Nick's son from his previous marriage. Formerly the owner of her own company, with an Mba, Megan has given up her career to be at home with the children -- and it's starting to get to her. Rachel Fox, who was a regular on ABC's Desperate Housewives, has joined another CBS multicamera comedy pilot, Vince Uncensored, starring Michael Chicklis as Vince who, after brain surgery following an aneurysm, starts speaking his mind -- literally. »

Several Last-Minute Pilot Castings

6 April 2011 2:04 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Actor-comedian Jobrani, repped by Apa and Levity, is a founding member of the Axis of Evil standup troupe and toplined ABC's comedy pilot Funny In Farsi last season.

No Ordinary Family: ABC Exiles Episode to Saturday

23 March 2011 12:10 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

As if there weren't enough signs already that ABC's No Ordinary Family is doomed to be cancelled, the network has given us another one.

The TV series, about a super-powered family, has been struggling in the ratings for quite awhile and currently averages just a 1.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.67 million viewers. Last week's episode attracted only a 1.2 demo rating. ABC also recently cut the episode order from 22 to 20 installments.

Just days after production wrapped on what will likely be the final episode of No Ordinary Family, the show's stars signed on for new CBS shows. Michael Chiklis will star in a new sitcom pilot called Vince Uncensored. Julie Benz has signed on for an as-yet-untitled supernatural medical drama, co-starring Patrick Wilson. (These are technically in second position but it's certainly not a good sign.) »

TVLine Items: Mad Men's Cruel Summer Delay, Mirren Does SNL, and Other TV News to Know

22 March 2011 3:09 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We’ve got good news, bad news on the Mad Men front. Lionsgate TV and AMC are inching closer to a new deal with showrunner Matt Weiner, reports Deadline. The catch is that arriving at an agreement at this late date all but guarantees a delay in the series’ fifth season.

With Weiner’s compensation negotiations continuing into late March, production on Mad Men will likely not begin in time to meet the traditional  summer premiere date. But a pushed-back Season 5 is better than none at all, right?

Fox has been cast in the big-screen reboot of James Patterson’s Alex Cross stories, Deadline reports.

16 March 2011 8:00 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Kelsey Grammer has signed on to direct CBS' multicamera comedy pilot Vince Uncensored, which stars Michael Chiklis.

Fairy tales, fractious families and filthy titles: What you might be watching next season

15 March 2011 6:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Pilot season is in full swing: Casting has been going hot and heavy for weeks now, and cameras either have started rolling or will soon for most of the 82 shows in development.

And like every pilot season, there are some trends emerging in the projects the broadcast networks have ordered, in addition to the usual array of cop shows and medical dramas. Some are easy to explain (the networks all want their own "Modern Family" or "Glee"), others less so (what's with all the fairy-tale stuff?). Here's what you may be seeing come fall.

Once upon a time ...

The networks got tired of vampires and decided to expand their otherworldly horizons. There is, in fact, a show called "Once Upon a Time" (which stars Jennifer Morrison, at left in the photo) in development at ABC, and like several others in the pipeline, it's set in a world where fairy-tale legends »

'No Ordinary Family' star Julie Benz joins CBS pilot

14 March 2011 4:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Julie Benz has followed her "No Ordinary Family" co-star Michael Chiklis into the pilot-season fray, signaling further bad news for the ABC series.

Like Chiklis, who's starring in CBS' comedy "Vince Uncensored," Benz has signed on to a pilot at the Eye, although hers is a drama. The untitled show stars Patrick Wilson as a surgeon who's trying to re-order his life -- with help from his late wife (Jennifer Ehle of "The King's Speech"), who communicates with him from the afterlife.

Benz will play Wilson's sister, a single mother who has myriad issues of her own, Deadline reports.

The CBS project (from "Erin Brockovich" and "The Soloist" screenwriter Susannah Grant) is in second position to "No Ordinary Family" for Benz, so if both were to make the schedule next season she'd be obligated to return to ABC. But given "Nof's" modest ratings and the large number (14) of drama pilots ABC is developing, »

Pilot Scoop: No Ordinary Family's Julie Benz Joins CBS' Untitled Supernatural-Tinged Drama

14 March 2011 11:32 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Julie Benz has joined her No Ordinary Family co-star Michael Chiklis in booking a fall pilot.

Benz has joined CBS’ untitled Susannah Grant supernatural medical drama which, like Nof, has high-concept elements. Jonathan Demme is directing the hourlong project, which centers on Michael (Patrick Wilson), an ultra-competitive surgeon whose life is changed forever when his ex-wife (Jennifer Ehle), a doctor running a free clinic, dies and begins teaching him what life is all about from the hereafter. Benz will play Michael’s sister, an unfocused and overwhelmed single mother with a huge heart.

Benz co-starred on Showtime’s Dexter and »
