Olivia Pope and Associates have found a new friend!
Friends alum Lisa Kudrow made her Scandal debut last week, and her character, Josie Marcus, caused quite a bit of trouble for the White House as she began to score political points in the primary election at Fitz's (Tony Goldwyn) expense. But Josie Marcus might not necessarily be the enemy.
Once upon a very different time, Lisa Kudrow owned Thursday night along with her other TV Friends during NBC's now-distant era of "Must See" supremacy. She's back on the same night, on a different network, but once again she's landed on the buzziest show of the moment: ABC's Scandal (10/9c), where she begins a recurring role as Josephine Marcus, a Democratic Congresswoman — and outspoken critic of the Grant administration — who tangles with First Lady Mellie (the awesome Bellamy Young). What drew Kudrow back to network TV? May have something to do with her longtime friendship and working relationship with producing partner (and guest actor Emmy winner) Dan Bucatinsky, who plays Cyrus's excitable partner James on the show. While she's reason enough to tune in, the Pope & Associates subplot also sounds like fun, as they take on as a client a politician notorious for snapping photos of his unmentionables. (Sound familiar?)
Just as Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been tasked to open ABC's Tuesday night lineup, fellow new series Once Upon a Time in Wonderland has the dubious honor of filling the network's problematic Thursdays at 8/7c timeslot, which hasn't produced a hit since the Ugly Betty days.
The Once Upon a Time spin-off, which tells the story of Alice (Sophie Lowes) returning to Wonderland to find her true love, will debut on Thursday, Oct. 10 in a slot that seems cursed over the last few years...
