Wednesday Playlist: Not So Fun Night, Ironside Premiere; Ovation's Starry Young Doctor

Rebel Wilson

After her breakthrough performances in Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect, no one would question why Rebel Wilson has become a sought-after star, or why ABC would want to build a show around her ample and fearlessly outrageous talents. But Super Fun Night hasn't been much of a joyride so far.

The original pilot, which has been replaced by another episode for its official premiere (9:31/8:31c), elicited this reaction from me in the Fall Preview issue: "The grotesque extremes to which Wilson stoops to get laughs in this frenetic vehicle have a whiff of desperation. It might also be more fun if she used her authentic Aussie accent." The objection stands about her Americanized speech (her choice), and while the new opener is a little less degrading — instead of exposing her body on a city street with flashing lights on her underwear, a new gag involves an office elevator door shredding her dress, revealing her Spanx at work — it's not much funnier.

Roush Review: Light, Hope and Glee: Fox's Tuesday Comedies

Traffic Light

Sorry to put the brakes on Fox's post-Super Bowl momentum, but the network's new relationship comedy Traffic Light is a no-"GO" for me. Or, as I tend to think of it after having watched four derivative episodes: "STOP" me if you've heard this before.

Fox's Fall Lineup: More Laughs, Less Idol

Will Arnett

Fox's new primetime lineup will feature more comedy and a little less American Idol, the network announced Monday. Fox will take the bold step of cutting the long-running (and sometimes loooong) show and will introduce three dramas and four comedies, including one that pairs Will Arnett and Keri Russell.

The show, Running Wilde, will join Glee as part of the network's new Tuesday night comedy block.

NCIS: Is Jimmy Palmer's New Girlfriend Here to Stay?

Brian Dietzen, NCIS

NCIS' Brian Dietzen only worried about only one thing when he learned his character, Jimmy Palmer, would get a new love interest: Would she meet the same fate as his last one?

NCIS exclusive: Numb3rs star gunning for Gibbs in season finale

"My last girlfriend didn't work out super well," Dietzen tells TVGuide.com, referring to Agent Michelle Lee (Liza Lapira), the NCIS mole who died after Gibbs (Mark Harmon) shot her in Season 6. "It lasted a while, but every time your girlfriend ends up being a double agent or getting shot by your boss, it's hard to handle for your personal confidence."

Don't worry: Jimmy's new girlfriend isn't going anywhere, and even makes a brief appearance in Tuesday's episode... read more
