Hot in Cleveland
At the risk of mixing one's classic-comedy metaphors ... While watching the ladies of The Mary Tyler Moore Show reunite for a chipper if undeniably poignant exercise in meta nostalgia on TV Land's Hot in Cleveland (Wednesday, 10/9c), you might find yourself wistfully recalling the old Carol Burnett Show theme: "I'm so glad we had this time together." This is especially true for the iconic buddy duo of Mary and Rhoda, with Mary Tyler Moore appearing even more frail than Valerie Harper, whose inspiring public battle with brain cancer pretty much defines the quality once attributed to Mary Richards: "spunk."
The untitled Jim Gaffigan comedy pilot that failed to get picked up will be redeveloped by CBS, TVGuide.com has confirmed.

The single camera comedy will star Gaffigan as a happily married New York City father of five, just as he is in real life. Peter Tolan remains as writer and executive producer along with Gaffigan, while Michael Wimer and Alex Murray will also executive-produce. The project, from Sony Pictures Television, is being developed in 2013-14 to air possibly in the 2014-15 season.

The broadcast networks are desperate for your attention. They know that you're overwhelmed with their programming and distracted by cable, the Internet and now even streaming services. Plus, they didn't produce a new major hit this season, and their ratings are suffering for it.
That's why this year's crop of nearly 100 series pilots at the five networks (48 comedy and 50 drama from the five networks) is all about being big: big stars, big producers, big concepts.

Cheers to My Boys for weathering the loss of one of their own.
TBS' endearing-underdog sitcom has always coasted on the chemistry of its ensemble, so the news that the reliably hilarious Jim Gaffigan wouldn't return for Season 4 as Jordana Spiro's droll brother gave fans cause for concern...
My Boys by Ben Watts/TBS
Cheers to TV's most underrated comedy: My Boys. In its just-completed second season, TBS' sitcom about a Chicago sportswriter (Jordana Spiro) and her gaggle of pals wisely cut back on the hackneyed sports-metaphor voiceovers and focused on its strength: an ensemble with genuine, Friends-level chemistry. With the exception of standup genius Jim Gaffigan (who plays Spiro's goofy brother), none of the actors were previously familiar to me. But with their snappy timing and breezy camaraderie, they've become great TV company. If My Boys were on CBS, it'd be a How I Met Your Mother-sized hit. Instead, it's still waiting for a third-season order. Time to step up to the plate, TBS. Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion board.
