Just as Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been tasked to open ABC's Tuesday night lineup, fellow new series Once Upon a Time in Wonderland has the dubious honor of filling the network's problematic Thursdays at 8/7c timeslot, which hasn't produced a hit since the Ugly Betty days.
The Once Upon a Time spin-off, which tells the story of Alice (Sophie Lowes) returning to Wonderland to find her true love, will debut on Thursday, Oct. 10 in a slot that seems cursed over the last few years...
Aziz Ansari knows how to "Treat Yo' Self" even in Hong Kong. The Parks and Recreation star heads to Asia for Esquire Network's The Getaway, the brainchild of Chef Anthony Bourdain in which celebrities travel to their favorite place to reveal their go-to haunts, eats and activities.

It's Pawnee vs. Eagleton!
Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) will finally get one up on the most historic rivalry this Thursday on Parks and Recreation. Since she's facing low approval ratings in the recall campaign, Leslie decides to play dirty by trash-talking Eagleton and her Eagletonian counterpart City Councilor Ingrid de Forest (guest star Kristen Bell). How will the press react? Check out this exclusive first look below:
Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar
Round 1 of the battle of returning comedy heavyweights goes to Robin Williams.
The funnyman's sitcom The Crazy Ones opened to 15.6 million viewers and a 4.0 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic Thursday, easily trumping The Michael J. Fox Show, which averaged 7.3 million and a 2.1 for two episodes.

Our top moments of the week:
13. Best Sexual Harassment: In an effort to win back her old office on The Mindy Project, Mindy convinces her new (and much less alcohol-tolerant) co-worker, Paul (James Franco) to a shots-off. When Mindy drinks Paul under the table, literally, she helps walk him home and leaves him, unconscious, at the door to his apartment. But not before the newly engaged Mindy decides to go in for a kiss. The minute she presses her lips against his, however, the drunk Paul yells "Whoa, mama! Help me! Whoa!" Apparently that wasn't as good for him as it was for...
Robin Williams and James Wolk
Comebacks are big news this fall — James Spader enjoyed one on Monday with the splashy premiere of NBC's The Blacklist — and nowhere is this more true than on Thursdays, with three high-profile comedy vehicles for beloved stars from sitcoms past. And while conventional wisdom has long suggested that it's easier to create new stars on TV — Sleepy Hollow's Tom Mison, anyone? — than to build new shows around old favorites, what really matters is giving them material that lives up to the billing.
Jonny Lee Miller, Rhys Ifans
London is calling on Thursday night!
Elementary returns for its second season Thursday night (10/9c, CBS), and like the Parks and Recreation premiere on NBC, it will feature a trip to merry old England when Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Joan Watson (Lucy Liu) venture across the pond.
Elementary Sneak Peek: Joan is shocked to meet Sherlock's brother
When a former colleague hits a spot of trouble, Sherlock returns to his homeland but then finds himself in trouble when he crosses paths with his brother Mycroft (Rhys Ifans), whom he hasn't spoken to, much less even mentioned to Joan, in years. Will the brothers be able to reconcile? TVGuide.com caught up with executive producer Rob Doherty to get the scoop on Season 2:
Parks and Recreation is back!
The NBC comedy kicks off its sixth season on Thursday night with a special one-hour episode that sees Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) & Co. headed off to London. It sounds like a jolly good time, but their trip is just one step in Leslie's comprehensive plan to hopefully keep her job. The recall campaign will be the least of her worries when she discovers her best friend Ann (Rashida Jones) will be leaving Pawnee. Way to kick a girl while she's down! TVGuide.com hit the set of Parks to get the scoop on what's in store for Pawnee's Parks Department this season, including the impending birth of Ron Swanson's (Nick Offerman) baby, Ann and Chris' (Rob Lowe) exit and Tom's (Aziz Ansari) new love interest:

Did you get any juicy Scandal scoop when you were on set? — Laura
NATALIE: Olivia Pope might be the First Mistress, but it's her co-workers who will bear the brunt of that revelation in the season premiere. "It makes it hard because they go from being people who manage other people's crises to people who have to manage their own crisis in a big way," Kerry Washington tells me. "When Olivia herself is at the center of it, it really challenges everybody. It's hard for them to figure out what their roles are. If she's the client, how can she be the boss? Who gets to make the rules?"
