TV News – 2/18/10

Thursday, are you ready for Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains tonight? I am going to get back to my regular reviews next weekend, including some talk about Amazing Race and Survivor, I have more time now that I’m not playing travel guide to my sister šŸ˜€ . Let’s talk news, what little there is.

Harold Perrineau (Lost, Oz) is going to be guest starring on an episode of CSI: NY in April. Perrineau’s episode will air in April and will have him playing “a death row inmate who finds himself fighting for his life when he’s trapped in a prison riot.” The twist with his appearance is that his character will affect Dr. Hawkes’ (Hill Harper) world, causing drama for the adorable coroner turned CSI. My money is on there being some tie to a former life of crime for Hawkes, what do you think? Source

More after the jump.

Ausiello is kind of like Santa Claus when it comes to TV spoilers and details on our favorite shows, except we get to have little hints and peaks at our presents šŸ˜€ Here’s the newest spoiler chat with Ausiello, but as usual if you are a masochist and don’t want to be spoiled then don’t click the link, everyone else who enjoys treating themselves go here!

A couple bits of casting news for you. Donald Faison (Scrubs) has been added to the CBS comedy pilot The Odds which is a “buddy-cop show set in Las Vegas, where the cops are as outrageous as the crimes they solve.”. Sounds interesting.
Autumn Reeser (The OC) has joined Michael Chiklis in the new ABC drama No Ordinary Family which centers around a family with special abilities. For more on these castings and others head over to The Hollywood Reporter

Although Better Off Ted hasn’t been officially cancelled yet (it’s still on the bubble), it’s star, Jay Harrington, has been cast in a new NBC pilot. Harrington has just landed the lead in Nathan vs. Nurture which is about a surgeon reconnecting with his biological family. This doesn’t bode well for the ABC comedy Better Off Ted which has always gotten great reviews, but no viewers šŸ™ If ABC does renew the comedy then Harrington will continue on as Ted, if they don’t he’ll be Nathan on NBC, only time will tell.

That’s it for news today but watch for my thought on the American Idol season 9 top 24 later today. I am also fortunate enough to be interviewing Simon Cowell later today and will have that interview for you shortly. As for TV tonight, you can catch new episodes of Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice starting at 9 pm on ABC. Not to mention that there is still lots of Olympic events to watch and cheer for on many of your local stations as well as NBC.
