Maggie Lawson, James Caan
Are you ready to play ball with Back in the Game?
Now that ABC's new sitcom, starring Maggie Lawson and James Caan, has premiered, we want to know if you think it's a hit or a miss — and what you think of every new show this fall season.
ABC's innocuous new sitcom about likable underdogs, Back in the Game, could just as easily be called "Luck of the Draw." This Bad News Bears-lite gets a major assist right out of the gate with an enviable time period (Wednesday, 8:30/7:30c) sandwiched between TV's best family comedies, The Middle and Modern Family. Which could always backfire, of course, if the show doesn't live up to ratings expectations, and while this Little League comedy doesn't quite measure up to the big leagues, we shouldn't be surprised if family audiences rally around the team, turning a solid base hit into something potentially worthy of extra innings.

On ABC's new comedy Back in the Game, Maggie Lawson stars as Terry Gannon Jr., a single mom who finds herself down on her luck and moves back in with her estranged father, Terry Sr. (James Caan), an ex-athlete nicknamed "The Cannon."

On the baseball diamond behind 20th Century Fox Studios in Los Angeles, James Caan is consoling 11-year-old Riley Kehoe. It's the second week of production on ABC's new Little League comedy, Back in the Game, and the camera has just stopped rolling on a scene in which Riley collides with his twin brother and fellow actor, Griffin. Riley hit the dirt hard, so Caan steps in with a bit of advice. "Next time, take him out" ...
What does Sonny Corleone have in common with James Caan's Back in the Game character? Ruthlessness.
At the Television Critics Association fall previews on Sunday, showrunners Robb and Mark Cullen revealed childhood memories of their father, who inspired Caan's Back in the Game character Terry "The Cannon" Gannon.

Will Shawn's dad live?
That's been the burning question on the mind of every Psych-O since Henry (Corbin Bernsen) was shot in the April finale, and when the cast and crew visited Comic-Con Thursday to show new footage from Season 7, they were happy to keep the mystery alive.
Sporting a T-shirt with question marks on the front and the back, Bernsen was introduced last when a chair and name tag were pulled out from behind the stage for him. He said he didn't know if he had a job. But despite the lack of clues about Henry's status, the cast and executive producers were more than happy to offer plenty of other spoilers...
