TV News – 12/01/09

December already, don’t forget to start your advent calendars if you have them! I’m running behind on the news today (Obviously 🙂 ) but I do have some bits of news for you. Some good, some not so good.

First the not so good, CBS has pulled Three Rivers from it’s schedule with no return date in sight. The network says that the show will still remain in production for at least the initial order of 13 episodes, but no definite decision has been decided. Boo! This is terrible news, because I love this show. My family and friends love this show, where are our ratings? 🙁 CBS please give it more of a chance, it’s a great show! Source

More after the jump

Heroes fans take notice, Sendhil Ramamurthy (aka Mohinder), has been cast in the upcoming NBC dramedy pilot, Rex Is Not Your Lawyer. Sendhil will be playing “an ambitious but good-natured lawyer” who happens to fall in love with Rex’s (David Tennant) fiancee. Sounds amusing. Jane Curtain has also been cast for the show and she’ll be playing Rex’s mom. No information on when the pilot will air but I’ll keep you posted. Source

There is some casting news being confirmed for the HBO phenomenon True Blood. Marshall Allman (Prison Break) has been cast to play Sam’s younger brother Tommy. Also Shannon Lucio (Prison Break), has been cast to play Bill’s wife, Caroline. The wife he never returned to after he became a vampire during the war. That role was originally played by a different actress in season one but this will be a more in depth role. I’m excited about Allman being cast as Tommy, he was great on Prison Break and I think he’ll be a wonderful addition to the cast. Source

Here’s some great news for Ugly Betty! She’s moving to Wednesdays at 10 pm on ABC, instead of it’s current banishment time slot on Friday night. This switch will take effect after the winter break. Ugly Betty has really stepped it up so far this season so a spot on ABC’s popular Wednesday night is a fitting reward in my opinion. Source

Alright, that’s all for tonight I’ll be back tomorrow with more news, and I’ll try to get it in earlier, it’s just been one of those days. 😀
