Due to a slowdown in postings, I have been unable to properly declare my love for the dino/time traveling series Terra Nova. The show mixes action and adventure with a family drama on an epic scale with ease. It has an engaging story and likeable characters. Now that I got that out of the way, what is going on tonight at 8pm on FOX? Official Description: “Bylaw” Jim and Taylor investigate the first murder in the colony; Skye helps Josh find a way to reunite with his girlfriend from 2149; Elisabeth and Zoe try to help an unborn ankylosaurus survive.

I know, how could I pick a show on Halloween without a Holiday theme? Honestly, this year feels like it has had the longest Halloween ever. I’m ready to move on. I can only imagine how December will feel.

Also new tonight:

8PM

ABC: (8:30pm) Dancing with the Stars (reality competition)
CBS: How I Met Your Mother/2 Broke Girls (comedies)
NBC: The Sing Off (reality competition)

I was surprised a couple months ago by the announcement that NBC was reviving Fear Factor and I think I’m still in shock that a new episode of Beavis & Butthead aired on MTV this past Thursday, but both of those shows coming back pale in comparison to the news that broke last night from FOX… the network is bringing back the 90s cult sketch comedy In Living Color.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the new version of the show will bring back its creator Keenen Ivory Wayans as host and executive producer for two half hour specials during midseason, then depending on how the ratings are, Fox has an option for a full series order. If you don’t remember In Living Color, you can rest assured that it was funnier than Fox’s MADtv and much more outrageous that Saturday Night Live. The show launched the careers of Keenen Ivory Wayans (along with the whole Wayans clan; Damon, Shawn, Marlon and Kim) along with Jamie Foxx, David Alan Grier, and of course Jim Carrey (who stole the show for me with Fire Marshall Bill… FOX I don’t care what you have to do, or how much you have to spend, if the show goes to series you have to do something to get Carrey appear in the role down the line).

Can we expect any other shows to make a return? I’d love to see more 90s shows make a comeback. How about The Secret World of Alex Mack? Or how about another new Saved by the Bell? Who’s the Boss? Boy Meets World could now be Man Meets World? The possibilities are endless.

The fall television season is in full swing and we have lots of casting news and the axe has fallen on the first new shows of the season. Read on…

Lets start with the breakout hit of the season, the Zooey Deschanel sitcom New Girl, after an awkward actor swap between the pilot and second episode — Lamorne Morris took over for Damon Wayans Jr who appeared in the pilot, but then his low rated series Happy Endings was surprisingly renewed which didn’t let him continue with New Girl. Not only has the series been picked up for a full season, but they just scored an awesome guest star, Zooey look-a-like Lizzy Caplan, who will be a love interest for Nick (Jake Johnson). She’ll be around for multiple episodes.

When 30 Rock returns (at some point midseason?) look for X-Men‘s Cyclops James Marsden to be appearing in at least one episode if not more. This might be the last season of the NBC comedy, with Alec Baldwin thinking about bowing out after the new season. Other announced guests for the new season include Denise Richards and Will Arnett (who might be pulling triple duty between this, his new series Up All Night, and the rumored return of Arrested Development in mini-series format).

NBC, who canceled the Playboy Club earlier, has now pulled the plug on their new comedy Free Agents, which starred Hank Azaria, Kathryn Hanh, and featured Buffy alum Anthony Head. Surprisingly the network ordered a full season for their struggling new comedy Whitney. With things not looking that promising with their new crop of shows, maybe NBC will go back on calling this season of Chuck its last? Maybe they will throw us fans a bone with a full season order (instead of just 13 episodes)? We can hope, can’t we?

Speaking about Chuck, if the casting of Mark Hamill and Carrie Anne-Moss in guest spots wasn’t cool enough, lets add comic book legend Stan Lee to the mix along with Community funny man Danny Pudi and White Collar‘s Tim DeKay. The new season begins in three weeks with a Halloween-themed episode.

Maybe the cast and crew broke in to an executive’s house and stole some incriminating documents? Somehow the Fox series Breaking In has survived being cancelled twice (yeah, I said twice). The series from Adam F. Goldberg and Seth Gordon has been picked up for a second season of 13 episodes. The show is actually really funny and witty, it stars Reaper‘s Bret Harrison, Christian Slater, Michael Rosenbaum, Odette Annable, and Alphonso McAuley. Not to mention a great line up of guests including Alyssa Milano and Mike Tyson. The series centers around a high-tech security firm that uses extreme and questionable methods for their clients.

The success of the brilliant cable series Mad Men has made Broadcast Networks mad for period dramas. Next season of television will include Pan Am, set around airlines in the sixties, The Playboy Club, Hugh’s famed club during its heyday (also in the sixties), and Gilded Lillys, which is set in the 1980s at a New York City hotel. Now you can add into the mix an untitled wrestling drama from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jerry Bruckheimer for NBC. This one is set in the world of wrestling during the 1980s. While the show will be set in a fictional world, in the real world the eighties was the rise of Hulkamania and when the World Wrestling Federation (now known as WWE) excelled wrestling from a sport to entertainment. Personally I think there are so many places this series could go and I’m very excited about it. The Rock is a perfect producer on this as he is a third generation wrestler who not only grew up through this time period, but also even had his hand wrestling against Hulk Hogan.

Terra Nova, the new high concept time travel/dinosaurs series from Fox, just released three awesome posters. Check out one of them below and the other two over on the Hollywood Reporter.

The new series stars Jason O’Mara, Christine Adams, Naomi Scott, Allison Miller, Landon Liboiron, Shelley Conn, Alana Mansour, Mido Hamada, and Avatar‘s badass villain Stephen Lang. It premieres on September 26th.

Sometimes when a show runs for a lot of seasons, they can run out of stories to tell. That is not what happened on Monday night on House though, no, the writers just got damn creative in this dream sequence where House faced down with zombies! (click the image to watch)

You know what? If House went in the direction of a zombie apocalypse, I think I’d start watching it again…

Tonight I’ll be busy watching an all new episode of (the best show on TV) Chuck. But what else is going on in the idiot box?

Smallville has an end date and will go out with a bang in the form of a two hour series finale on Friday, May 13, 2011. It is still hard to believe that the young Superman series is ending, and with how awesome the 10th season has been, I keep hoping that they will announce a continuing series for Lois and Clark or in the very least a spinoff for Green Arrow or one of the many other DC Comics heroes introduced in the series.

FX’s popular comedy The League will be returning for a 13 episode 3rd season! The series is based around a group of friends that are all part of a fantasy football league. It stars Mark Duplass, Nick Kroll, Jonathan Lajoie, Paul Scheer, Katie Aselton, and Stephen Rannazzisi.

The latest episode of CSI featured a cameo by non other than William Petersen’s Gil Grissom. Check it out for yourself here. It was great to see him back on the show, but it couldn’t be a little longer?

The post-Superbowl episode of Glee was actually pretty good (especially when compared to most of the lack-luster second season of the hit Fox musical). You can see the “Thriller”/”Heads will Roll” meshup over on Hulu.
