In case you haven't seen the incessant promos during the MLB playoffs and Conan, GD is a new sitcom about a group of freshmen rushing a fraternity at an Indiana university in 1986. (Unfortunately, there's nothing rushed about the show — it's an hourlooong show, a fact the ads fail to mention.) No collegiate-comedy cliché goes unturned, from the shtick-figure characters — the virgin, the jock, the stoner — to the predictable debauchery, with gag topics running the gamut from bongs to beer bongs...

Joely Fisher and Brad Garrett, 'Til Death
After disappearing from the airwaves in early October, many thought Fox's 'Til Death was on its way to the grave. But that doesn't appear to be the case.
Fox has ordered 22 episodes of the Brad Garrett and Joely Fisher comedy, which will return next season. The new order brings the series' episode total ...
Brad Garrett in Monk by Trae Patton/USA Network Photo
Cheers to Brad Garrett for his image-changing guest spot on Monk. The 'Til Death star livened up the seventh-season premiere as "Honest Jake," a murderous handyman hired by Tony Shalhoub's obsessive-compulsive detective to fix up his new house. (The inside joke here, of course, is that Garrett was TV's original poster boy for OCD as cop Robert Barone on Everybody Loves Raymond.) The 6'8" Garrett effectively used his size for menace rather than mirth. Maybe he can intimidate Death's writers to give him scripts equal to his talent.

Well, would you look at this: I took a bunch of random exclusive casting scoops and packaged them into one very special Ausiello Report blog post. Enjoy! Exercising the "Sarah Chalke Clause" in his 'Til Death contract, Brad Garrett has signed on to appear in Monk's July 18 season premiere. He'll play a handyman who helps Tony Shalhoub with his home renovations. Also on the Monk front, Robert Loggia (Big, Mancuso, FBI, assorted mobster roles) has been cast as an aging boxer in "Mr. Monk Takes a Punch," a Season 7 episode slated to air in August. Former CBS newsman Dan Rather is reprising his role as former CBS newsman Dan Rather on ABC's Dirty Sexy Money next season. This time 'round, he'll be interviewing Patrick Darling (Billy Baldwin) about his new book. Superman's pledging a fraternity! And that's not even close to being the truth! In reality, Greek is casting a Clark Kent-type to play Rusty and Dale's new R.A. Got suggestions? Post 'em below!Woo-hoo! Ra...
Miley Cyrus and Hayden Panettiere by Steve Grantiz/WireImage.com
Shrieks and slime filled UCLAs Pauley Pavilion as Jack Black, Miley Cyrus, Shia LeBoeuf, Jessica Alba and many, many more took center stage at the annual Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards. The first victim claimed by the green goo was Indiana Jones himself, Harrison Ford, but before the night was over Mummy star Brendan Fraser and heartthrob Orlando Bloom would also be covered in gooey goodness. The orange carpet, with its usual displays of playful fashion and eardrum-busting noise, was a chance for celebrity parents to share the spotlight with their kids. Brad Garrett ('Til Death)and Jodie Foster had both claimed tickets after taking part in kid-friendly movies. For Garrett the question wasnt whether playing Underdog gave him more clout with his kids, or whether it was getting tickets to the show. Being the animated dog helped get tickets for this show," he says. "Im a big kid, too, so I love it! Foster, who has only made one movie her kids are allo...
Blake Lively and Penn Badgley in Gossip Girl by Andrew Eccles/The CW
Is it possible that this season, Wednesdays are the new Thursdays? An incredible amount of high-profile new programming nine freshman series in all will be introduced to the Wednesday prime-time schedule over the next few weeks, and when the dust settles, I can only hope a few of my new favorites will survive.First up are CBS, the CW and Fox, launching their newbies a week before the official season begins. The biggest headlines so far have been generated by CBS' unseen-by-critics and instantly controversial Kid Nation, a reality show in which 40 kids are set loose in a desert ghost town (actually an unused film set) and tasked to create a Utopian adult-free society. Sounded kind of prosocial and heartwarming until all those red flags began to surface about possible abuse of child-labor laws, penurious confidentiality agreements that made boilerplate mention of such possible reality-show liabilities as STDs, and allegations of injuries on the set. Something tells me th...
