Afternoon News: September 28, 2011

1.Series Premiere! We are definitely slow on new premieres this week but tonight, ABC debuts Suburgatory, a show that follows a girl from the city, transplanted into the 'Burbs by her (over?)protective father. Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm) co-stars which might be reason enough to watch. The show's timeslot (between The Middle and the Modern Family juggernaut) will certainly help with initial viewers. ABC also has the season premiere of Happy Endings (if you're into that kind of thing).

2. Ratings News. Week 2 Decline Watch continues.Fox won the night in the 18-49 demographic with Glee shedding 10% from its premiere and New Girl 9%. CBS Tuesday nights continue to dominate in total viewers, led by the NCIS/NCIS: LA juggernauts.No one continues to watch CW's shows.

3. Andy Rooney has his last broadcast this weekend on 60 Minutes. Kudos to him for still being alive! This video is still my favorite thing Andy Rooney ever did.

4. Fantasy Worlds Collide. Pam (Kritin Bauer), everyone's favorite vampire from True Blood is set to guest star on Once Upon a Time as Maleficent, the evil sorceress from “Sleeping Beauty." Awesome!

5. Life Imitating Art. Apparently, Tom and Lynette's on-screen problems have been affecting the working relationship of Doug Savant and Felicity Huffman off screen. Seriously? People, its only a show.

6. Casting News. Glee has signed Grant Gustin to play a recurring gay wedge; a devious Warbler set to come between Blurt's Gay Unicorn romance. Hey, didn't Blaine leave the Warblers? In LOST alumni news, Sonya Walger (Penny from LOST) has been hired on to play a witty, couples therapist in USA's new show, Common Law.
