– Here's a behind the scenes preview for Shameless' second season, which premieres on January 8th at 9 p.m. on Showtime (and probably TMN/Movie Central):
(Please visit the site to view this media)
– Emilie de Ravine (Roswell, Lost) has been cast as Belle on Once Upon A Time.
– ABC may have cancelled Ugly Betty and Desperate Housewives, but they still want to keep Vanessa Williams. The actress has signed a talent holding deal with the network which will see her headline her very own new hourlong or half-hour project for next fall. Let's hope she gets to play someone other than Wilhelmina Slater.
– Nick Jonas will play a deadbeat dad on Last Man Standing. ABC should have got Justin Bieber instead.
– Bollywood star Anil Kapoor has bought the rights to the Indian version of 24. The Slumdog Millionaire star appeared in season 8 of the Fox hit will play the Indian version of Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer.
– My picks for tonight:
Boo! to ABC for pre-empting their comedies and Revenge in favour of The CMA Awards.
On Up All Night (8 p.m. on NBC and CTV2): Chris (Will Arnett) and Reagan (Christina Applegate) have a romantic night away — their first night away from Amy.
