Mike O'Malley, Rachael Harris
With the success of Raising Hope, Fox is giving another domestic comedy a try.
The network has cast Emmy nominee Mike O'Malley and Rachael Harris as a married couple for the single-camera comedy pilot Family Album, Deadline reports. The project centers on Dave (O'Malley), a gung-ho ex-jock who returns from a family vacation a new man, inspired to "bond the crap out of his family." Harris will play his wife and a stay-at-home mom.

The "Very Funny" cable network burned off the whopping nine-episode season of its sly charmer about Chicago sportswriter PJ (Jordana Spiro) and her pals on Sundays opposite such sky-high-profile cable competition as Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Mad Men — whose costar Joel Murray, aka rehabbed alky Freddy Rumsen, guested on Boys as the owner who sold the gang's hangout, Crowley's, to Brando (Reid Scott) in the season finale.

Rachael Harris, Cougar Town
Rachael Harris stops by Cougar Town to play Shanna, who is kind of the anti-cougar. Shanna and husband Frank (Spin City's Alan Ruck) used to socialize with Jules and ex-husband Bobby, but grew apart after the Cobbs' divorce. On Wednesday's episode (9:30/8:30c, ABC), Jules finds out why Shanna is so "disapproving." The 41-year-old Harris — who has made a name for herself in places as varied as Showtime's Fat Actress, ABC's short-lived Notes from the Underbelly, the hit feature film The Hangover, Christopher Guest movies and The Jay Leno Show — tells TVGuide.com how she uses the Internet to hone her comedy chops, how long Shanna will be sticking around Cougar Town and why she's always cast as kind of a man eater.

It's not Christine Baranski, but this'll do nicely. The sublime Rachael Harris (Notes from the Underbelly, Fat Actress) will play even-tempered sidekick to Cybill Shepherd's Katey Sagal's unhinged sitcom diva in that stuntastic episode of CSI penned by Two and a Half Men scribes Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn. And should there be any lingering doubts that Lorre and Aronsohn modeled Sagal and Harris' characters after Shepherd and Baranski, both of whom the writers worked with on Cybill, this next little tidbit should erase them: Sources confirm what I hinted at last August, that the duo first offered the second-banana role to Baranski herself. That's right, they wanted Baranski to play Baranski! But for whatever reason possibly this one she wasn't able to do it. Um, have I told you lately how much I'm looking forward to this episode?

The event, held Wednesday at PaliHouse in West Hollywood, gave the by-invitation-only members of the Cierge program a sneak peak at the latest Sony cameras, PCs and TVs. Wearing a sparkly silver minidress, Dancing with the Stars' Stacy Keibler checked out Sony's ultra-thin OLED flat-screen television with some gal pals, while Rachael Harris of Notes from the Underbelly strolled around with her husband, actor Adam Paul. Of her ABC comedy, Harris lamented that the remaining eight episodes might not ever see the light of day. "It's disappointing," she said. "But what can you do?" Staying for the evening's big draw the Sony PlayStation SingStar karaoke event were Allison Janney and Missi Pyle. Before jumping onstage with Pyle to launch into Elton John's "Rocket Man," Janney told us, "I need to sing tonight because I'm doing [the stage] musical 9 to 5 and I'm trying to get my voice into shape!" The two recei...
