Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Laurence Fishburne
It's a weekday morning on the Black-ish soundstage, and Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross are made up as if they just rolled out of bed: Ross's hair is a crazy mess and Anderson's pajamas are in wrinkled disarray. In other words, they resemble an average, frazzled American couple waking up to a noisy family, ready to face another day at their demanding jobs.
Combine Friends and Cheers, then sprinkle Hollywood Game Night on top and you've got the idea behind Pub Quiz, a new comedy in the works at NBC.
Gina Tognoni, Tom Hallick
What's 36 years between appearances? Tom Hallick, an original cast member of The Young and the Restless, is returning to the CBS soap but not as Brad Eliot, the heartthrob neurosurgeon turned news reporter he played from 1973 to '78. Instead, on Sept. 26, Hallick will be seen as a kindly truck driver who helps an on-the-lam Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) find her way back to Genoa City. The setup is a trippy homage to the premiere episode of Y&R — in fact, the soap's very first scene — which had Brad getting a lift from a truck driver heading to GC.

Question: I really enjoy your column and appreciate your insights. You've done well for me over the past few years, suggesting great shows that I really loved including Friday Night Lights, Lost, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Good Wife. I even watched the entire series of Fringe on Netflix based upon your recommendation. Now though, nothing looks that great for this coming fall. Can you tell me if there is something coming that is worth adding to my list? — Julie
I've waited nearly 10 years for the return of Project Greenlight, one of my all-time favorite docu-reality series, in which novice directors make a low-budget independent film while cameras record their every struggle. Although HBO has green-lit the show's comeback, Starz may have trumped it with ...

People listen when Steve Harvey doles out advice on his namesake talk show, whether it's about courtship, marriage, divorce, child-rearing, or — that touchiest topic of all — money. So what words of wisdom does he have for this fall's new talk-show hosts? We asked. He delivered.
TV Guide Magazine: You, Katie Couric, Jeff Probst and Ricki Lake all debuted talk shows in 2012, but you're the only one still standing, and your ratings keep going up. What's your survival secret?

Shemar Moore, Kristoff St. John
You can go home again — though you might be in for a shock. On Wednesday, Sept. 10, Criminal Minds star Shemar Moore returns to the daytime soap role that put him on the map 20 years ago, Malcolm Winters on CBS's The Young and the Restless. The two-episode experience left Moore, who left the show in 2005, stunned and pretty frazzled. He told TV Guide Magazine all about it.
TV Guide Magazine: Back to the old suds grind, eh? How'd it go in Genoa City?
Shemar Moore: It was both wonderful and scary. It was the same set ...
