Aw, geez. Fargo had a modest debut Tuesday.
The well-received drama bowed to 2.65 million viewers, with 1.02 million in the 18-to-49 demographic. That's slightly below FX's most recent launch, The Bridge in July, which drew 3.04 million. Counting encores, Fargo pulled in 4.15 million and 1.79 million in the demo.

"We are young/heartache to heartache."
Nobody knows about young love, and young heartbreak, better than the characters on Glee. Which is why it's so shocking that the Fox musical comedy has not yet covered Pat Benatar's iconic hit..

13. Best Kiss: After Adam's laser-tag-turned-make-out birthday party on The Goldbergs goes awry, it seems like he won't get his first kiss after all. But when Adam ends up throwing the original laser tag party he wanted, and that brings Dana in the line of (laser) fire, he valiantly dives in front to save her. How does she thank him? With a kiss!

Shirley MacLaine is coming to Glee!
The Oscar-winning actress has landed a multi-episode arc on the Fox dramedy, TVLine.com reports.
Bubble Shows: Which will survive?
Glee may have recently hit 100 episodes, but the celebration is over. Fox has reduced the current fifth season from 22 episodes to 20, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The decision stems from the production hiatus at the start of the season following the death of star Cory Monteith. THR says the network might film the two cut episodes early to help promote a possible 24-episode final season next year.
Chris Messina, Mindy Kaling
Having recently been renewed for a third season, disproving TV's usual out-of-sight/out-of-mind policy, Fox's The Mindy Project emerges from a three-month hiatus with back-to-back episodes (Tuesday, 9/8c) demonstrating Mindy Kaling's devotion to screwball comedy. A concept which Amy Schumer would probably find a way to make sound really, hilariously dirty. (Her uproarious Comedy Central sketch-com Inside Amy Schumer returns at 10:30/9:30c, making this an especially happy April Fools Day.)

Question: I'm sure you have tons of letters in your mailbag about the "twist" on The Good Wife. For once, this was not over-hyped at all. I've always stood by the idea that the creators of shows are artists who have the right to do whatever they want with their characters, and we should be more angry with gratuitous plot twists or inconsistent character development than things that just make us sad. It is a "melodrama," after all, and entertainment does not mean that you will be made happy all the time.

13. Birds of a Feather Award: Wednesday's episode of Arrow unites the Black Canary and the Huntress, two members of the so-called "Birds of Prey," but in a nice twist, they're adversaries. Their fight gains even more symbolism when Laurel — who will eventually become the Black Canary and a member of the "Birds of Prey" — joins the fray. An interesting way to...
