Morning News: October 11, 2011

Welcome to a slooooow news day.

1.  Series Premiere. ABC debuts Tim Allen's triumphant (probably not so much) return to television tonight with the sure to be cancelled gem, Last Man Standing.  I hope there is at least some classic Tim Allen grunting.

2.  Casting News. Game of Thrones has announced the casting of the Wilding (and *Spoiler Alert* Jon Snow's love interest) Ygritte. The Wildling that's been kissed by fire will be played by Downtown Abbey's Rose Leslie.  The cast is enormous for Season 2 of Game of Thrones. Catch up on Season 1 now while you can!  Emma Caulfield (of Buffy the Vampire fame) is set to play the blind witch from the Hansel and Gretel fairytale in a one episode appearance on ABC's Once Upon a Time. TV watcher is soo looking forward to Once Upon a Time!

3.  In a ponderous decision, Fox has benched new episodes of New Girl until November 1. With the early rerun session of Glee starting tonight, it feels like Fox is surrendering its front line and regrouping at a fall back position.

4.  Normally, we'd wait for Monday's ratings to come out but with baseball preempting Fox last night, it'll be awhile before the numbers shake out and we see where Terra Nova landed, though there is no reason to expect any difference in the normal CBS route in total viewers and Dancing With the Stars scoring a large 18-49 win.
