1. TV Tonight! Olympics continue tonight with final finals in gymnastics apparatuses so its a good guess that NBC is the place to be tonight.
- NBC has more Olympics coverage (final night of gymnastics, track & field and beach volleyball)
- ABC has a new NY Med at 10.
- The CW has a new The L.A. Complex at 9.
- On cable, Discovery has Deadliest Catch: Behind the Scenes at 9; A&E has the season premieres of Shipping Wars at 9 and 9:30 and Storage Wars at 10 and 10:30; SyFy has a new Destination Truth at 9 and the season finale of Haunted Highway at 10; and HBO premieres the new season of Hard Knocks: Training Camp With the Miami Dolphins at 10.
2. New York Comic Con. On My DVR will be at New York Comic Con this year, October 11-14. We will be reporting from all of the panels and screenings that matter to TV lovers and if you’ll be around, drop us a note, we’d love to meet you!
3. Revolution Teaser! So, what do we think? Elizabeth Mitchell! Giancarlo Esposito! Beautiful Young People with Hunger Games aspirations! Drowned Chicago! Giancarlo Esposito with Morpheus’s sunglasses from The Matrix! SWORD FIGHTING! Yeah, its going to be awesome!
4. Casting News. Handy Manny (Wilmer Valderrama) will be guest starring on Raising Hope this season. TVLine.com has it that Peri Gilpin (Roz from Frasier) has booked a recurring role on TBS’s Men at Work for its next season. In a meta-check that you would expect from Episodes, James Van Der Beek will be actively recruiting former Dawson’s Creek castmates for a reunion of sorts in next season’s Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23; so far only Busy Philipps (Cougar Town) has signed on! Laura Bell Bundy (How I Met Your Mother; Broadway roles) has been cast in a recurring role on Hart of Dixie next season.
5. New Show Announcements! Dr. Dre is getting a show for a scripted drama on FX which … is awesome! One of the Dance Moms is getting her own show on Lifetime, Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition, starring Abby Lee Miller. McG (EP on Supernatural and Nikita) is developing a Romeo & Juliet-type show set in Venice, California but really, can it be better than Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 modernist take on Romeo + Juliet (with Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes)?
