Up All Night
NBC's Up All Night should have been a hit. The show came with a strong comedy pedigree: It starred Christina Applegate, Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph and was produced by Saturday Night Live don Lorne Michaels. At the center was what seemed to be a relatable premise for the young adults watching the network's upscale comedies: a hip, young couple adjusts to life with a baby.
But two years after creator Emily Spivey shot the pilot (then called Alpha Mom), Up All Night is all but gone, suffering the death of a thousand tinkers. A heavily touted plan to morph the show into a multi-camera sitcom is now mostly abandoned, and some of the outlandish ideas bandied about for the revamp (including one idea involving rock star...

Question: I've never written to you before, but I'm hoping you can look into a crystal ball for me and reassure me about the fate of Nashville. I'm totally hooked by this show, which is saying a lot since I haven't watched anything regularly on the big three networks for about 10 years or so. I'm extremely worried that Nashville is doomed for cancellation, since it appears that the ratings are pretty lackluster. Any gossip or buzz that you can pass on to reassure me?
Ahead of several big creative changes behind the scenes, Christina Applegate is leaving Up All Night after two seasons.

Friends, Kevin Bright
Now we can finally watch Green Acres Friends the way it was meant to be seen.
Friends: The Complete Series Blu-ray box set hits stores Tuesday for the first time, featuring all 236 episodes completely remastered, with 17 hours of extras from the original DVDs and more than three hours of all-new bonus features. Among the new content: New retrospective documentaries, a never-before-seen gag reel, and the original script and producer's cut of Season 8's "The One Where Rachel Tells Ross," which includes a Monica (Courteney Cox) and Chandler (Matthew Perry) story line that had to be modified in the wake of 9/11. The 21-disc collection is must-have for any diehard Friends fan who has been there since Ross (David Schwimmer) grabbed a spoon or is just learning what the "Joey special" is now in syndication. "I think we have something that's going to make Friends fans really happy," co-executive producer/director Kevin S. Bright tells TVGuide.com.

Go On was one of the first three new shows to earn a full-season pickup this fall, and its success comes as big of a surprise to the cast and crew as it may anyone else.
"Nobody knew whether it was going to work," Matthew Perry told reporters on a conference call. "Nobody knew, really, whether people were going to laugh at these sad situations."

Happy Endings is almost back! (And when we say almost, we mean ABC won't be bringing the cult hit comedy back until October! Groan.)
To pass the time until our favorite sextet is on the air again, we thought we'd help the writers of Happy Endings by offering up a few wacky, yet totally plausible, situations that the group could find themselves in this season.

Web Therapy's Fiona Wallice is crude, rude and she finally wants to become a better person in Season 2. But can she?
"Fiona sees her sister (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) for therapy and her sister destroys her, but in an unobvious way," Lisa Kudrow, who plays Fiona, tells TVGuide.com. "So Fiona starts rethinking her whole life and the next time we see her she's in bed, in tears, no makeup, pajamas — just a mess. And we've never seen her like that."

And unsurprisingly, it will be short-lived.

Any Tony-Ziva NCIS scoop? — Rita
ADAM: Executive producer Gary Glasberg says it was no accident that the fan-favorite couple ended last season in close quarters when the bomb went off at NCIS HQ. "We'll pick up with them in that elevator and, with the situation that they're in, there will be some conversations," Glasberg says. "Hopefully we'll scratch our way a little bit deeper into the relationship." What's that? Sorry, I couldn't hear you over this awesome Aerosmith song!
