To paraphrase NBC's marketing slogan, has prime time become "less colorful"? Looking at the casting of this fall's new TV series, the groups that monitor TV diversity think so.
Unlike last year, when at least nine new shows boasted leading roles for black, Latino and Asian-American actors (including NBC's now canceled Undercovers and Outlaw and The CW's returning Nikita), next year most minority characters are supporting roles. The networks are also airing more comedies next fall — and in recent years, half-hour sitcoms have been less diverse than dramas.
That's why there's concern that the...

Gellar's Ringer, which was originally developed for sister network CBS, will follow 90210 at 9/8c on Tuesdays — the same night Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired for most of its run on the WB and UPN before they merged into the CW. The thriller stars Gellar as a recovering alcoholic on the run ...

The CW has renewed One Tree Hill and Nikita and pulled the plug on Hellcats.
Long-running CW soap One Tree Hill had been expected to come back for a ninth season already, so the news comes as no huge surprise. Most of the cast, including original...
Over the course of its first season, Nikita has become a show about loss and difficult choices as much as espionage and violence. It's no surprise then that one of the principal characters meets a Division-related demise on Thursday's finale (9/8c on the CW).
"Yes, someone dies," Lyndsy Fonseca confirms to TVGuide.com. "Everything that happens in the finale is not just for the sake of killing people or for the sake of a good storyline. Stuff has been kind of brewing for a long time, and I think it's going to be really emotional."

I am dying to know what happens in the NCIS finale. — Eric
ADAM: Expect even more bloodshed. But the Port-to-Port Killer case doesn't completely rule the hour. "The finale really hits a lot of the Vance-Gibbs tension," executive producer Gary Glasberg says. "It's going to provide a lot of answers to what Vance has been dealing with all season. Gibbs is going to become privy to a lot of it... and it's going to bring his relationship with Vance to another level." Does that signal an administrative shakeup? "There are definite changes that affect NCIS," Glasberg says. "The team is going to have to work together in a way they've never had to work together before next season."

The Office, Steve Carell
Steve Carell wasn't the only one to exit The Office.
Just 6.8 million viewers tuned in for Thursday's first Michael Scott-free episode — 17 percent drop from the week prior. Carell's final episode on April 28 drew 8.25 million viewers. To be fair, however, the episode that aired prior to Carell's exit drew 6.85 million viewers.
NBC's other Thursday-night comedies fared OK. Community's paintball episode brought in...

Amanda's shockingly violent turn at the end of last week's Nikita is just an appetizer for the evil Percy will be serving up in the final two episodes of the season.
"I think Percy is most impressive in Thursday's episode (9/8c on the CW)," executive producer Craig Silverstein tells TVGuide.com. "It really shows just how smart Percy is as an antagonist. Your hero is only as good as your villain is evil."
