The Mob Doctor
The storyline in an upcoming episode of Fox's The Mob Doctor is definitely a horse of a different color. And that color is off.

What if a new TV season launched and nobody came? Post-Olympics sneak peeks, video on demand and online previews have taken some of the excitement out of the traditional network premiere week, as none of the new shows has had breakout ratings (many CW series start this week). Also to blame: the fact that 45 percent of all TV households now have a DVR and that more viewers catch a show on their computer or iPad if they miss it on TV. "The immediacy and the excitement of seeing a show has gone away," confirms one network executive. But the season must go on. Here's what the numbers tell us.
Jordana Spiro, Zach Gilford
The Mob Doctor's Grace Devlin (Jordana Spiro) and Brett Robinson (Zach Gilford) face all the obstacles a typical couple in their position would — working long hours, getting to know one another's families, and navigating the awkwardness of dating your boss. Oh, and then there's the whole issue of Grace secretly working for the Chicago mafia.
"I think [Brett] is sort of an escape for her from her whole background and where she grew up, and obviously from the mob," Gilford tells TVGuide.com. "But he's not totally different. He's not a pushover. He challenges her ... and I think he finds her strength and rebelliousness kind of attractive and appealing."

Jordana Spiro and Zach Gilford
In the premiere episode of The Mob Doctor, viewers learned that the first corpse Dr. Grace Devlin (Jordana Spiro) ever encountered was that of her father when she was a young girl — and now it seems that the identity of his killer will be one of the show's major mysteries. Not to mention, just how deep did his Mafia ties run?
Looks like you're ready for a Revolution.
NBC's new mystery series premiered to a strong 11.7 million viewers and a 4.1 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demographic on Monday. That is a huge improvement from last year's premiere of The Playboy Club, which drew 5 million viewers ...

Where were you when the lights went out?
That scenario, which has been played for comedy in the past, is the stuff of escapist fantasy-adventure in the more appealing and promising of two new network dramas premiering tonight. NBC's heavily hyped Revolution (10/9c) follows a long line of high-concept quick fades including The Event (same network, same night), Terra Nova (same night, different network), FlashForward, V, Alcatraz and so on. Will this make the grade where so many others failed?
"What would have happened if Meadow Soprano had gone on to medical school and become a doctor?" That's the question writer-producer Josh Berman said he found himself wondering when Jamie-Lynn Sigler (who played Tony Soprano's brainy daughter on The Sopranos) guest-starred on his show Drop Dead Diva.
