Suburgatory: Wilmer Valderrama to Return as New Age Guru Yoni

After bad timing, jealousy, divorce, bad timing, children, careers, and more bad timing got in the way of their apparent chemistry in the first season of  Suburgatory , George and Dallas will be trying to take their relationship to the next level this season. It's an exciting yet scary time for the two, neither having had much success in the romance department recently with George a lonely single dad and Dallas having been trapped in a loveless marriage. Now that Dallas is divorced and they've both tried to date other people to avoid addressing their feelings, it's time for them to lay all their cards out and try to be together.

TV ratings: Cowboys-Giants draws big numbers for NBC Wednesday

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2012The kickoff to the NFL season didn't score ratings quite as big as it did last year, but Wednesday night's game between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants was still a big winner for NBC.Despite the big numbers for the NFL game, "Big Brother" and "So You Think You Can Dance" held up reasonably well for CBS and FOX. NBC averaged 20.6 million viewers and a 12.7 rating/20 share in households in primetime, numbers that will likely go up some when the live telecast is taken into account. CBS (5.1 million, 3.3/5) was the best of the rest, beating FOX's 4.1 million and 2.6/4. ABC came in fourth with 3.6 million viewers and a 2.5/4. The CW trailed with just under a million viewers and a 0.5/1.NBC posted an 8.2 rating among adults 18-49, down from a 9.5 for last year's NFL kickoff but still dominant for... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/09/tv-ratings-cowboys-giants-draws-big-numbers-for-nbc-wednesday.html

Look at Who Has Been Cast as Mom to Tessa on ‘Suburgatory’

Actress Malin Akerman, most recently seen in the box office film  ‘Rock of Ages’, will be taking on the role of Alex, the estranged mother of  Tessa (Jane Levy) on the hit ABC comedy  Suburgatory . It is being  reported that Alex is a "beautiful, free-spirited singer/songwriter who has never met her daughter", who will show up in the Thanksgiving and Christmas episodes after she finally gets over her fear and shame, attempting to form a relationship with Tessa. Series creator Emily Kapnek shared that "I’m a huge, nerdy fan [of Malin's] and this was an extensive search for the right actress to play such a pivotal role in our show. It turned out to be well worth the wait. She’s funny, gorgeous and incredibly charismatic, and I know her chemistry with Jeremy Sisto and Jane Levy is going to be off the charts. Malin is a comedy writer’s dream, both beautiful and comedically fearless. I’m over the moon about her agreeing to play Alex".

Suburgatory: H. Jon Benjamin to Guest Star in Season 2

Dallas and George might finally be testing the waters of a relationship this season on  Suburgatory, but things aren't going to come that easily for the two. TV Line is reporting that H. Jon Benjamin (Archer, Bob's Burgers) will be guest starring as a life coach named Tabitha, hired by Dallas to help her through her current life transition. Described as "unlicensed" and "unconventional", he'll be toted along by the single mother on her first date with George, which will be the second episode of the upcoming season. There's no indication if the role could be recurring beyond that, though I'm guessing that the success (or lack thereof) of the date might make Dallas reconsider this approach.

Suburgatory Boss on the "Tough" Search for Tessa's Mom, George and Dallas' Rush Into Dating

The pressure is on for Suburgatory this coming season. On-screen, the family comedy is preparing to introduce the long-gone mom of Tessa ( Jane Levy ) as well as finally put will-they-or-won't-they couple George ( Jeremy Sisto ) and Dallas ( Cheryl Hines ) together. Off-screen, the family comedy is in the hot seat (in a good way) after a last-minute bump on the fall schedule from 8:30/7:30c to the coveted post- Modern Family spot of 9:30/8:30c. "I'm still trying to figure out what I should send [ABC Entertainment President] Paul Lee as a thank you gift," creator and executive producer Emily Kapnek says. "It's not just a huge opportunity, but a good fit. We were a little bit edgy at times for...  //www.tvguide.com/News/Suburgatory-Season2-Tessa-Mom-1051804.aspx?rss=breakingnews

Suburgatory: Rachel Dratch to Guest Star in Season 2

TV Guide is reporting that Rachel Dratch will be moving to Chatswin, at least for one episode. The comedienne will be guest starring on the Halloween episode of  Suburgatory as a frenemy of Sheila Shay's who lives in East Chatswin. The character will reportedly be "kind of a feminist" and "a little bit of a hippie", which obviously means she'll clash with the conservative, traditional Shay matriarch. It'll be another headache for the Shay family to have to endure, as Lisa discovered in the season finale that Ryan was the one that was adopted, not her. That may have called a lot of things into question for the teenager, including the likelihood that she'll end up like her mother, but it's about to get extremely tense in the Shay household once  Suburgatory comes back from hiatus. And having to do battle with someone from East Chatswin, of all places, will only add to the stress about to fall on Sheila Shay.

'Suburgatory': Timeslot switch with 'The Neighbors' makes for a better fit, ABC says

The timeslot switch for ABC comedies "Suburgatory" and "The Neighbors" makes for a better fit for both shows, ABC Entertainment president Paul Lee says.When ABC announced its 2012-13 schedule in the spring, it had "Suburgatory" staying in the 8:30 p.m. Wednesday spot it held last season and "The Neighbors" -- a new show about a family who moves into a community populated by aliens -- in the prime 9:30 p.m. spot following "Modern Family." When the network announced its season premiere dates on Thursday (July 26), however, the two shows had switched spots."The Neighbors" will premiere after "Modern Family" on Sept. 26, but the following week it moves back an hour, following "The Middle." Lee explains, "We want to give it that big push [for the premiere] because we're very proud of it, and we're going to market it. But then I wanted to protect it. ...

'Suburgatory' and 'The Neighbors' may switch timeslots on ABC

ABC is considering shuffling its Wednesday comedy lineup -- and potentially giving a big boost to its second-year show "Suburgatory."The network is likely to swap timeslots for "Suburgatory" and its new comedy "The Neighbors," Deadline reports. The move would send "The Neighbors" to 8:30 p.m. ET Wednesdays and give "Suburgatory" the prime real estate following "Modern Family" at 9:30.Early reviews from critics on "The Neighbors" -- about a family that moves to a suburban development populated entirely by aliens disguised as humans -- haven't been especially kind. But it will still have a solid timeslot between "The Middle" and "Modern Family" and the potential to possibly reach more of a parents-and-kids audience in the earlier spot."Suburgatory" averaged 7.25 million viewers and a 2.5 rating among adults 18-49 in its inaugural season -- numbers that could rise some with "Modern Family," one of the top-rated comedies on TV, as its lead-in. In turn it could provide... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/07/suburgatory-and-the-neighbors-may-switch-timeslots-on-abc.html
