TV on Tap: BBC America Orders More “Copper,” “Rev” is Coming Stateside and Andy Samberg Signs Up for a Police Comedy

Nikita‘s mission has gone from destroying to managing The Division.


BBC America has ordered a second season of Copper. I’ve been totally sucked into the show and its period setting, so I’ m thrilled to get another season

ABC will work to adapt the BBC series Rev. I’ve been hearing about the original, so I guess its time I tried harder to check it out.

In unsurprising news, PETA is thrilled that Animal Practice has been cancelled.

TLC aired a special called My Giant Face Tumor. Sounds like they’ve found a new way to lower the bar. (Hmm, Lowering the Bar might make a better name for the channel than TLC.)

For those of you who are interested, TVLine has a detailed breakdown on the complexities of ratings in the current digital age. It covers how DVR viewership affects a show’s future, when DVR viewers count and how season passes make it harder for new shows to get noticed.

Andy Samberg has signed up for a comedy from Parks & Recreation producers Mike Schur and Dan Goor. The series focuses on a group of detectives working for a precinct at the edge of New York City.

Fueling my… er, intense interest in having Bryan Fuller‘s work back on my TV, Mockingbird Lane now has a Tumblr.

Former My Boys star Kyle Howard will bring his scruff to an episode of Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23.

I’m way behind on the Emmy-sweeping drama, but if Homeland can inspire this kind of snark, I wonder if it is struggling through a Being Human-style sophomore slump

For those of you who miss Marisol Nichols on GCB, she’s booked an appearance on Private Practice.

For the second season finale, Kane has to deal with an article with damaging information, but the real danger may come from the way Starz hasn’t ordered a new season by now.

Nikita (CW) 9:00 PM ET
The CW’s compelling espionage drama returns tonight and things are basically upside-down now that Nikita has taken control of The Division, Percy‘s dead and Amanda‘s on the run. Nikita hasn’t been afraid of walking away from the status quo (actually, the status quo is usually material for firewood on this show) so it should be fun to see where they go from this starting point.

Primetime: What Would You Do? (ABC) 9:00 PM ET
This week’s hidden camera segments include a parent shopping for a Halloween costume, whose child wants to wear a costume meant for the opposite gender. I’m guessing this is inspired by the boy who wore a Daphne costume, which is pretty great inspiration to turn to.
