Suburgatory returned this past Wednesday after a 10-month hiatus and down two cast members — three if you count fan-favorite recurring guest Parker Young — but creator Emily Kapnek insists that fans shouldn't be worried about the future of Chatswin.
"From a scheduling standpoint, there was a little bit of shuffling that goes on, but I will say that [ABC President Paul Lee] has been incredibly supportive of our show," she told reporters Friday at the Television Critics Association winter TV previews. "I know that some of the scheduling stuff was hard and they're in the midst of trying to figure out what works where and we're very happy to be ....
Jeremy Sisto, Jane Levy
When TV viewers last visited the immaculate streets of Chatswin on Suburgatory, George Altman (Jeremy Sisto) was having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad couple of days. After deciding to co-habitate with his girlfriend Dallas (Cheryl Hines), George's daughter Tessa (Jane Levy) protested and left to move in with her mom. Then, Dallas dumped George, but only after he had purchased a hideous house for Dallas that he didn't even like.
Fortunately, when the ABC comedy returns for Season 3 (Wednesday, 8:30/7:30c), George's dog days are almost over. "George is at a real low place," Sisto tells TVGuide.com. "He's living in this horrible house that he bought for his ex-girlfriend with leather wallpaper, he has no furniture, his daughter has run away to live with his ex-wife, and his only companion is a big dog. But the beginning of the season is the end of that cycle...
Alan Tudyk, Rex Lee
It looks like some real estate is about to open up in Chatswin.
Suburgatory's Alan Tudyk, who plays George's longtime BFF Noah, and Rex Lee, aka Chatswin High Principal Mr. Wolfe, will not be returning full-time next season. However, both actors may...
Do you think you know every Firefly plot? Think again.
In this exclusive clip from Science Channel's Firefly 10th anniversary special Browncoats Unite, airing Sunday at 10/9c, the cast gathers to discuss behind-the-scenes secrets of the beloved gunslinging sci-fi series that ended after only 14 episodes. Star Nathan Fillion, who played Capt. Mal Reynolds of the Serenity ship, reveals an idea that series creator Joss Whedon had for an episode that never got a chance to be made.
"We're still flying."
Those words have become the rallying cry for Firefly fans who have kept the memory of the Joss Whedon sci-fi western alive for a decade after it went off the air. For its 10-year anniversary, Whedon and cast members Nathan Fillion (Capt. Malcolm Reynolds), Adam Baldwin (Jayne Cobb), Summer Glau (River Tam), Sean Maher (Simon Tam) and Alan Tudyk (Hoban "Wash" Washburne) reunited at a Comic-Con panel in San Diego before thousands of screaming fans.

The intense fandom eventually drove a major motion picture, Serenity, to be made as the final live-action chapter of the Firefly story. Mal & Co. also still live on in Dark Horse Comics' graphic novels. Science Channel will air a marathon of the series followed by the premiere of the anniversary special Browncoats Unite, exploring the Firefly phenomenon, on Sunday, Nov. 11.
Check out these nine shiny highlights of the reunion panel:

Alicia Silverstone and Jeremy Sisto
Should you skip any of the last seven episodes of Suburgatory this season, be warned: you'll be missing a Clueless reunion, a kangaroo named Penuche (like the caramel), a step routine by Dallas' sorority sisters (she went to an all-black college), date night for Ryan and Tessa, The Situation...
Look, it's probably best if you just don't schedule anything on Wednesdays at 8:30/7:30c from now until Mother's Day. Trust us. And trust Suburgatory boss Emily Kapnek, who was in a giving mood when she spoke about everything yet to come. The 13 biggest spoilers:
Fall TV Scorecard: Which Shows Are Returning? Which Aren't?
Hot In Cleveland
Unless you're watching the Orange Bowl on ESPN, tonight's best bets are strictly comedy. (And yes, that includes Revenge. More on that in a few.)
It somehow seems fitting that when TV Land's Hot in Cleveland (10/9c) looks back at how it all began for Melanie, Joy and Victoria, we're thrust into an '80s time warp, because if there was ever a show that felt like an artifact from a simpler, sillier time, it's this one. Betty White gets the set-up: "How did you guys meet, anyway?" Elka asks to kill time outside a stadium restroom. "If there were a TV in view, I wouldn't [care]," she barks, self-reflexively acknowledging what a clichéd storyline this is.
