Fall TV: Proving they don't screw around with that "additional script" nonsense, NBC has ordered full seasons of The Event (yay!), Law & Order: Los Angeles (cool!) and Outsourced (um, huh?!). No word yet on what the Outsourced order might mean for the scheduling of returning comedy Parks & Recreation, which has been on hiatus this fall for star Amy Poehler's maternity leave.
But wait, there's more TV dish ahead...
Raising Hope: Jason Lee is reteaming with his My Name Is Earl boss Greg Garcia for a visit to the new Fox hit Raising Hope. Lee is set to play a washed-up rocker named Smokey Daniels who scores the headlining gig at Grocery-Palooza, a supermarket concert. We can already smell the funny!
FNL Flubs Again: Why won't more people watch the wonder that is Friday Night Lights?! Unfortunately for those of you who have been tuning in to ABC Family to watch (or rewatch) the series, you'll now have to turn to your friends at Netflix. Citing low ratings, FNL has been pulled from the network's lineup indefinitely. Silver lining? Season five premieres on DirecTV Oct. 27.
CoCo Live! If the Nov. 8 premiere of Conan is just too far away, we have some good news. The folks over at TBS are giving you a 24-hour livestream of everything happening behind the scenes come Oct. 20. Don't miss the fun starting Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. PT right here.
