TV News – 4/22/10

Well on the one hand it’s still Thursday on the West Coast. (It was when Megan had the news ready. Jenny’s fault for not putting up a couple of hours ago!) 😀 Sorry guys! That’s the down side to doing the news while I’m on vacation visiting family, I run into time conflicts some days. On another note I finally saw Avatar and it was fantastic, I really enjoyed it. Okay, enough about me (although let’s face it, I’m kind of fabulous 😉 ), let’s get to the news.

Megan Mullally will be coming back to Parks and Recreation in the role of Tammy, Ron’s (Nick Offerman) ex-wife. We’re not sure how long the stint will be only that it’ll be hilarious. Mullally, who is joining the Starz show Party Down in the new season, is actually maried to Offerman in real-life. I’m excited about this news even though I’m not a huge fan of Parks and Recreation.

More after the jump.

Ausiello is delivering again this week with some great spoilers. There’s some info on Modern Family, Glee and CSI, but if you don’t enjoy spoilers don’t click the link. Everyone who does like to indulge a bit go ahead but beware, SPOILERS AHEAD

FOX has decided to pass on a U.S. version of Torchwood even though it’s been in works with the creator up until now, it just didn’t make it past the ‘on paper’ stage. It’s not the end of the road yet though, BBC Worldwide says that they “are currently in discussion with several interested networks.” I’ll let you know what network picks it up, if any. Source

In American Idol news, I was overjoyed that Tim Urban finally went home. It was high time that America did something right. On the otherhand though, to save the season they should just admit it’s a race between Crystal Bowersox and Lee Dewyze, and cut it to the final two battle. What do you think?

Four-time Emmy Award winner and Academy Award nominee Hal Holbrook will be guest-starring in a four-episode arc of Sons of Anarchy‘s 3rd season, which premieres in September. He’ll be playing the father of Katey Sagal’s character, Gemma Morrow Teller. More info at The Futon Critic
