AfterElton Briefs: Fox Renews Three Favorites, “Repent & Reload,” and How Did “GCB” Fare In Its Potential New Timeslot?

  • Birthday shoutouts go to Marc Jacobs (above), who is 49, Hugh Hefner is 86, Dennis Quaid is here!, and he’s 58, Cynthia Nixon is 46, Kristen Stewart is 22, and Elle Fanning is 14. And a special shoutout to a man who is one half of the greatest influence of my formative years. Marty Krofft is 75, and he and his brother Sid made me the person I am today. What are your fave Krofft fever dreams? Here are mine 5. “The Lost Saucer,” 4. “D.C. Follies,” 3. “Bigfoot and Wild Boy,” 2. “Pink Lady & Jeff,” 1. “Electra-Woman and Dyna Girl.”

  • The film version of Ender’s Game has been pushed back from March of next year to November of next year. No official reason was given, but obviously my curse is starting to take effect. Bwa-ha-ha!
  • Lots of ratings news today. The second episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones held up strongly from the premiere, while Lifetime’s The Client List scored big numbers in its debut.
  • Meanwhile, Showtime moved Nurse Jackie and The Big C from Monday to Sunday, and it worked out for the former, but not so much for the latter.
  • In potentially okay news, ABC tested out GCB in the 9 PM ET timeslot, and it did … decently, while the 10 PM episode held up well, so … I’m not sure what it means, but it sounds … okay.
  • Speaking of Desperate Housewives, TV Line has confirmed that Dana Delany will be appearing on the Series Finale next month.
  • FOX HAS CANCELED GLEE!, is what I’d be writing if this was Bizarro World, but it actually has renewed the show, along with local faves Raising Hope and New Girl. I have to admit I’ve come to New Girl late, but now I can’t get enough of the hotness that is Jake Johnson.
