Afternoon News: November 10, 2011

1.  TV Tonight! CBS leads forward with its Big Bang Theory charge! NBC offers new episodes of its Must See Thursday comedy block followed by a new Prime Suspect (watch this show people!). ABC says good bye for good to Brian Grazer and says good bye until January to Grey's Anatomy. USA Network airs a new Burn Notice!

2.  Casting News!  Following on yesterday's cacophony of Franklin &Bash news, it came out later in the day that everyone's favorite hobbit, Sean Astin, will also be guest starring on the summer show.

3.  Series Renewals! Anderson Cooper's daytime talk show, Anderson, has been renewed for a second season and its syndication audience will also grow. I am very happy for how Mr. Cooper's career has rebounded since the The Mole! 

4.  In a follow-on to yesterday's Stupid People Say Stupid Things/Who Cares News, Brian Grazer has been announced as the Oscars' successor producer following Ratner's exit. Still no announcement on a replacement host following Eddie Murphy's resignation yesterday.

5.  Piers Morgan has announced that he is leaving America's Got Talent to focus on his nightly CNN show.  Good luck with that lemon Piers!

6.  In heartening ratings news, Terra Nova was up 24% week over week to a respectable 2.6 18-49 rating and 7.6 million viewers, easily beating The Sing-Off and Gossip GirlHarry's Law (watch this show people) was also up last night but its numbers are still so bad, I don't want to say them out loud.

Person of Interest: Big Trouble in Little Brighton Beach

Person of Interest
Episode 107

Before we get into tonight’s episode, out of no where I think this was the best episode of the series and really solidified what I think this show can be.  The Elias storyline, as its intersecting with Reese, Finch and the Machine and their collective mythology, really clicks and make an involved cohesive story.  Tonight’s TWIST! was first rate and really sets us up for the foreseeable future as an interesting A-level plotline tying us episode to episode.

Morning News: November 9, 2011

Before we get to today's News, we here at On My DVR want to express our feelings of sadness at the passing of 90's icon Heavy D. Born Dwight Arrington Myers, Heavy D (and the Boyz) were known for their energetic rap tunes, including their biggest hit, Now that We Found Love. Heavy D had remained active in the new century in both music and television and had even recently performed on the BET Awards last month.  This has been a tough week with the celebrity passings.

1. TV Tonight! ABC goes country tonight with the CMA Awards. Yeeha ya'll!  FX has a new American Horror Story.  CBS kicks it with Survivor, Fox with X Factor and NBC has a new Harry's Law (watch this show) and that's about it folks. 

2.  Casting News!  TV Line is reporting that Nick Jonas is coming to Last Man Standing as a dead beat dad, good image casting Jonas Brother!  The Dallas reboot has added another popular TV face, Carlos Bernard (24) will be a recurring character.  Beauty indeed. LOST's Emilie de Ravin (f/k/a Claire) has been cast as Belle on ABC's Once Upon a Time! TV Line is reporting a bunch of Franklin & Bash casting news, including The Medicine Woman (Jane Seymour) is set to play Zach Morris's mom, Robocop (Peter Weller) is stopping by and Beau Bridges is making a return appearance. A bit of missed news from yesterday, Mimi Rogers (a whole young generation says in unison, "who?") has been cast as Ashton Kutcher's mom on Two and a Half Men.

3.  Like Kelly Ripa? I hope so because she just signed on to Live with ____ and Kelly through 2017!

4.  Who Cares Controversy News! Brett Ratner has stepped down as producer for the upcoming Oscar's ceremonies after he said "rehearsal is for fags" on the Howard Stern show. My question is, who is listening to Stern and picked that comment to be offended by so much that they ratted Ratner out?

5.  In more Golden Age of TV Reboot news, CBS has shown interest in developing a reboot of the Western, The Rifleman.  I am already asleep just thinking about it.

RIP Heavy D

How I Met Your Mother: The Perfect Storm

There are so many alternate titles for this episode: Come On Irene, Daddy Issues, Slapgiving Came Early This Year...but I think the best would have to be "Holy Crap, I Didn't See That One Coming!"  But I'll wait till after the jump to elaborate, so read on...

Morning News: November 8, 2011

1.  TV Tonight!!!  Big, new episodes from Glee (the sexisode!) and NCIS (beginning of a two parter -- I love NCIS two parters) tonight. Also, enjoy servings of New Girl and Covert Affairs (Auggie gets a girlfriend in a blow to Auggie/Annie shippers everywhere).

2.  Casting News! If you loved Disney's High School Musical, you just picked up a reason to watch Raising Hope's Valentines Day episode; Ashley Tisdale is coming to that little engine that could on Fox.  Glee has cast Trouty Mouth's parents and they are Tanya Clarke (Guiding Light) and John Schneider (Smallville). OMG, we are super psyched to learn that Larry Miller (squee!) has been cast to play Jimmy's Father-in-Law to be on NCISStill one of TV Watcher's favorite stand up routines ever!  Imagine the Church Lady skits; I hope this is true!  Wilmer Valderrama (Handy Manny, this is the only show I don't hate him in so deal with it) has been signed to guest star on Suburgatory as a sexy, spiritual guru.

3.  Season/Series Pick Ups! FX has granted Sons of Anarchy an additional 14th episode to wrap up its current season. Yeah for SOA fans! Starz! has granted Spartacus a third season ... two and a half months before the second season even debuts. Someone is worried about Boss's tanking ratings. Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies) has got two commitments from NBC, one for a new drama following the exploits of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, the cannibal psychopath that enjoys fava beans and a nice Chianti from the Harris novels and the other, a reboot of the 1960's classic The Munsters.

4.  TMZ is reporting that Kim Kardashian has forbid E! to document the details of her divorce. Don't bite that hand that has fed you for so long Kim or else no one might be there to film your next wedding sham!

NCIS: The One Where We Finally Meet Diane...

Episode 907
"Devil's Triangle"

If you read my Glee post, you know that I am not one for blow-by-blow recaps, that's TV Watcher's department.  Since he's off to watch some football and NCIS returns tomorrow night, we wanted to make sure that you got at least a review of last week's show.  So, here goes!
