Lily Tomlin and her partner of more than 40 years, Jane Wagner, might finally be getting married, E! reports.
"We're thinking maybe we'll get married," Tomlin said. "You don't really need to get married, but marriage is awfully nice. Everybody I know who got married, they say it really makes a difference. They feel very, very happy about it."
What isn't going wrong in the life of Fiona Wallice? The wildly unethical Web Therapy shrink — played by Lisa Kudrow — is simultaneously dealing with a gay husband (Victor Garber), a straying boyfriend (Alan Cumming) and a mean-ass mom (Lily Tomlin) who started a rival business called Net Therapy and is now making a global killing. Plus, there's an unauthorized, scandalously unflattering musical based on Fiona's life that's heading for Broadway. But there's some good news when the Showtime improv series returns Tuesday, July 23 for Season 3 (11/10c).
Reba McEntire, Lily Tomlin
If Malibu Country returns for a second season, it will have to be without showrunner Nastaran Dibai.
As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, Dibai is leaving the series, TVGuide.com confirms. The comedy, starring Reba McEntire and Lily Tomlin, finished its first season in March, and hasn't been picked up yet.
The American Bible Challenge
TV history, and cable's History channel, will tell you: Never bet against the Bible. While History's greatest-hits approach to The Bible (airing Sundays through Easter) continues to reap blockbuster ratings, GSN launches a second season of The American Bible Challenge (9/8c), its highest-rated game show, which could just as easily be called Are You Smarter Than a Divinity Student?

Jeffrey Nordling, Reba McEntire
You won't hear any talk about vittles and varmints and cee-ment ponds on Malibu Country — premiering Friday at 8:30/7:30c on ABC — but there's no denying Reba McEntire's new series owes much to The Beverly Hillbillies. This fish-out-of-water comedy stars the country-music icon as Reba Gallagher, a freshly divorced Nashville mom and former singer who moves cross-country with her two impressionable teens to live in her ex-hubby's Malibu love shack. Also in tow: Reba's anything-goes mom, Lillie Mae, played by legendary comedian Lily Tomlin.

I'm a sucker for tradition, and there are probably worse ideas than ABC reviving the "TGIF" concept of family-friendly sitcoms on Friday night. Depending on your generation, you may find yourself thinking nostalgically of watching The Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family with the babysitter, or growing up with the Full House-Family Matters-Boy Meets World-Perfect Strangers brand of ABC comedy. Hold on to those memories, because unfortunately, there are few shows this season worse or more grating than tonight's Malibu Country (8:31/7:31c), where the beachfront corn grows awfully and annoyingly high.
Lily Tomlin and Reba McEntire
Reba McEntire admits there are some similarities between her new ABC show Malibu Country and her last sitcom Reba. But she thinks that works to the new show's advantage.
"Both are great... entertaining shows [that] the whole family can sit down and watch," the 57-year-old country superstar tells TVGuide.com.

Where were you when the Modern Family talent deal finally went down? If you were a member of the Television Critics Association, or one of the creators of ABC's most popular and acclaimed comedy, you were at the network's Friday night post-press tour party. You could actually feel the tension go out of the room — a tension that had clouded much of ABC's TCA day, a major distraction for entertainment president Paul Lee, who tersely deflected questions about cast negotiations during his press session.
