Marry Me

TV theme songs remain a rarity in primetime, with most shows settling for a quick title card and short instrumental burst. (Witness this fall's no-frills openings on shows like Jane the Virgin.)

Suburgatory Team Talks About "Leaner" Cast, and the Shays' New Addition

Suburgatory

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.

Suburgatory's Jeremy Sisto on George and Tessa's New Resolve and Being "Hurt" by Dallas

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... read more

Jane Levy

Tessa (Jane Levy) vs. Dalia (Carly Chaikin): It's the battle that's been brewing since Suburgatory started, and on Wednesday's hour-long season finale (8/7c on ABC), series creator and showrunner Emily Kapnek promises the fireworks will be well worth the wait. "There is just a full-blown, very wildly choreographed girlfight," she tells TVGuide.com. "It's kind of one of those moments where it was bound to happen and it's the only way to settle it. It's really an epic girlfight."

Unfortunately their long-awaited scuffle couldn't come at a worse time for their parents. In the final moments of last week's episode, George (Jeremy Sisto) and Dallas (Cheryl Hines) decided to move in together. So will Dalia and Tessa be able to work things out and co-habitate? Will George and Dallas actually go through with the big move? And what does Kapnek have planned for next season? Here are 5 more teases for what's on the horizon in Chatswin... read more
