A flurry of announcements from the Peacock regarding the upcoming season of television (in addition to Isaiah going Bionic, that is):

" TV icon Norman Lear is producing an hourlong dramedy about a widowed mother who reenters the workforce and is thus pitted against her late husband's Wall Street adversaries.

" Jerry Seinfeld will play himself on the Oct. 4 second-season opener of 30 Rock. Quips Tina Fey, "Finally, my parents have an excuse to watch the show." Love. Her.

" My Name Is Earl and The Office will launch their new seasons on Sept. 27 with hourlong episodes.

" The new series Chuck has been relocated to Mondays at 8, while Friday Night Lights has been moved up an hour to Fridays at 9. Leading out of FNL is Las Vegas, which returns Sept. 28 with a two-hour episode.

" The Apprentice is returning with a "celebrity version" in which famous(ish) faces vie for the Donald's favor and in turn raise bucks for charity. Trump says this incarnation "will bring our wonderful show to new heights." You scoff.

" Criss Angel and old-school Uri "Never Dated Cameron Diaz" Geller are teaming up on Phenomenon, which is dubbed as the search for the next great mentalist.
