Tony Shalhoub has joined the cast of CBS' untitled comedy, formerly called The Ex-Men, TV Line reports.
The project, from How I Met Your Mother executive producer Rob Greenberg, stars Chris Smith as a man who moves into short-term housing populated mainly by divorced men after being left at the altar. Shalhoub will play Frank, a four-time divorcé who's a self-proclaimed ladies' man. He joins Kal Penn, who will play Gil, a guy caught having an affair and must live in the complex until his wife takes him back.

You don't have to remind Psych star James Roday that his USA series has a rabid fan base — especially after those fans were forced to wait an extra three months for the show to return.
"The Psych-O's are impatient, that's why we love them," Roday tells TVGuide.com. "They're foaming at the mouth. Sometimes it's for Psych episodes, sometimes it's for turkey."
But with great fans, comes great responsibility. So the show had to be very careful when, after five years of will-they-or-won't-they tension, Psych kicked off its sixth season with Shawn (Roday) and Juliet (Maggie Lawson) as a full-fledged couple. It's been a long time coming, but Roday is all too familiar with the TV graveyard filled with shows that died after their lead characters coupled up.

Most years, the best we can hope for from an Emmy night is a few new winners and a few (arguably, as always) correct winners. This year, the probability for fresh blood at the winners' podium is especially high, given what a terrific season it was for freshman series. (The same will not be said for the batch of new shows about to premiere over the next month.) What follows aren't exactly predictions, because that game can be such an unhappy crapshoot, given the capricious nature of Emmy voters, who tend to vote for what they've always voted for, year after year — until they suddenly don't.

TV has really put the labor in Labor Day week. Its only the third day of September, and what is many years a sleepy week has already seen the premiere of six major series (network and cable), with roughly four more (if you count Bravos Top Design) on tap for tonight. I dealt with several of these shows already in my Roush Review columnFXs The Shield and Sons of Anarchy, Foxs Prison Break, TNTs Raising the Bar and HBOs True Bloodbut here are some more thoughts on a week so busy its hard to fathom that the official network premiere week is nearly three weeks away.Gossip Girl Rocks. Some of the most fun Ive had in front of the TV in the last week or so (when Im not absorbed in U.S. Open tennis play) was zipping through the first three episodes of Gossip Girls hilariously sizzling second season. On Monday night, we learned that mopey Serena was getting through her summer-without-Dan by watching The Close...
