NBC is reviving their comedy bonanza of the '80s — sorta.

Dark and twisty from start to finish, the legal thriller Damages doesn't quite deliver on its season-long promise to give bloodthirsty rivals Patty Hewes and Ellen Parsons the courtroom showdown many fans have long awaited. Which doesn't mean tonight's series finale (DirecTV's Audience Network, 9/8c) is short on fireworks between Glenn Close (a two-time Emmy winner as Patty) and Rose Byrne, who by the time the various convoluted plot strands play out, conclude "we both have plenty of blood on our hands."

When Jimmy Fallon got the idea for his new NBC comedy Guys with Kids, he knew exactly what he wanted to call it — and it wasn't Guy with Kids.
"[My producing partner Amy Ozols and I] were just talking about all the guys we were seeing around New York City and Times Square with the Baby Bjorns and [babies] on the backs of their bikes," Fallon said via satellite at NBC's Television Critics Association fall TV previews Tuesday. "We were just like, 'These are like young, good-looking guys embracing the roles of dad.' We both said at the same time, 'DILFS'! When we pitched the idea for DILFS ... NBC said, 'Yeah, we probably can't call the show DILFS, so we'll have to change that.'"
