What's Brewin' in TV - 'Royal Pains' picked up, Dr. Horrible to Host SNL and More!

  • USA officially picked up "Royal Pains" starring Mark Feuerstein and ordered 11 episodes on top of the 2 hour pilot.  This is the first "doctor show" for the network as Jeff Watchel (exec VP of programming at USA) puts it. He says it's not a medical show because it's more "personal and offbeat".  No word yet on it's premiere date. source
  • It was just announced that new Showtime series "United States of Tara" starring Toni Collette ("Little Miss Sunshine") will be viewawble 2 weeks before the premiere on Netflix.  They did the same with "Californication" last year and it must have gone well because now they want to do it all the time. source
  • If you're a wrestling fan, well you know there's plenty of shows to watch every week with RAW, Smackdown!, TNA, ECW and so on.  Well, if you still think you're not getting your fill, you're in luck!  WGN America is coming into the ring with WWE Superstars!  This will be a mashup of the heavy hitters and divas from the entire WWE line up and is scheduled to air on Thursdays.  source
  • This just in!  Neil Patrck Harris (y'know...Doogie.  Or Dr. Horrible.) is going to host Saturday Night Live!  He had a super 2008 with his internet fame, Golden Globe and Emmy noms, now it looks like 2009 is going to be just as good for him.  It was leaked that he may appear a few weeks ago but NBC made it official today.  His show will air live this coming Saturday with musical guest Taylor Swift. source
