About as subtle as a Texas tornado, GCB storms onto ABC with hopes of delivering Sunday-best ratings. While Desperate Housewives limps into the sunset, this gaudy, bawdy send-up of gossipy Dallas church divas has a brash, giddy energy reminiscent of happier times on Wisteria Lane.
ABC has given series orders to dramas Charlie's Angels, Good Christian Belles, Pan Am, Revenge, The River, Once Upon a Time and Shonda Rhimes' Scandal, as well as comedies starring Tim Allen, James Van Der Beek and Chris Moynihan. The network also canceled Brothers & Sisters, Mr. Sunshine, Detroit 187, Off the Map, No Ordinary Family and struggling alien-invasion drama V.

David James Elliott will return to CSI: NY, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
The 50-year-old JAG alum will reprise the role of FBI Agent Russ Josephson, the ex-husband of Sela Ward's Jo. In the first episode...
CSI: NY (Friday, 9/8c, CBS)
Ever since JAG signed off nearly six years ago, one of the most frequent topics in my mailbag is the hope that David James Elliott (last seen in ABC's short-lived Scoundrels last summer) will find his way back to CBS. For at least one week, his fans get their wish, as Elliott guests as the FBI agent ex-husband of Sela Ward's Jo. (Do we sense a triangle brewing?)
