Amid a disappointing season, Deadline reports that ABC is thinking of bringing Dana Delaney‘s Body of Proof back from cancelation.

In an interview with Buzzfeed Jessica Lange says the next season of American Horror Story may be her last. Lange would definitely be missed but she would also be leaving American Horror Story in good hands.

Syfy has decided to go forward with Opposite Worlds, according to Deadline. The reality competition series follows fourteen people who live in a house split in half — one with a past and future theme — and compete in challenges every week. I have to admit it sounds intriguing, if they can make it work.

What does Scandal have in common with Homeland? Alyyssa Rosenberg compares the two and declares that Scandal beats Homeland at its own game.

Speaking of Homeland, Showtime has ordered another season of Homeland and Masters of Sex.

Masters of Sex

This sounds like trouble. CBS is planning to air two colorized I Love Lucy episodes as a holiday special. The two episodes will be the “lost” Christmas clip show (the flashbacks will stay in black and white) along with “Lucy’s Italian Movie” which contains the famous grape-stomping sequence. Has colorizing the classics gotten any less controversial over the years?

Rex Lee has joined the cast of an ABC Family sitcom pilot, Young & Hungry, about a woman who becomes the personal chef of a San Francisco tech entrepreneur. Lee will play the entrepreneur’s publicist.

With the people who watched it within three days counted, FX is declaring the second episode of American Horror Story the channel’s most watched episode among adults 18-34.

Chris Harwick hosting @MidnightIf wishes were fishes we’d have created an ocean of ‘gayer Chris Hardwick’ fishes.

Chris Hardwick‘s @Midnight had a promising start in the ratings. It matched lead-in The Colbert Report among viewers under 50 and beat Colbert in

VH1 also got good ratings news as CrazySexyCool was the channel’s highest-rated original movie.

Listings

The Middle (ABC) 8:00 PM ET
As The Middle reaches its 100th episode, Sue finds herself dating Brad again, if only to make Darrin notice her.

Arrow (CW) 8:00 PM ET
Sure, Laurel may seem to have Ollie trapped but there’s an escaped serial killer loose in Starling City. Surely she’s not so bitter to let that problem go without the vigilante’s touch. Or, is she — these Kate Cassidy characters are starting to blur for me. Meanwhile, we get to meet the Starling City DA who is crazy hot (he is played by Dylan Bruce) but also wants Moira to face the death penalty while Roy meets a woman (Bex Tayor-Klaus) who might know something about the other blond vigilante in town.

Colton Haynes and Bex Tayor-Klaus in "Arrow"Did anyone order some Teen Wolf/The Killing crossover fiction.

Survivor (CBS) 8:00 PM ET
Sometimes, it’s hard to tell Survivor episode descriptions apart with the frequent promises of “stunning betrayals,” “dramatic tribal councils” and “bold strategic moves” but this week promises a tribe shuffle and the return of a… “Coconut Bandit”?

Back in the Game (ABC) 8:30 PM ET
Terry decides its time for her to try dating again (or to get back in the dating game — see what they did there?) only to discover The Cannon‘s latest moment of curmudgeonly grumpiness, which involves sabotaging Terry’s promising relationship.

The Tomorrow People (CW) 9:00 PM ET
Stephen realizes that one of his classmates could use the help of some homo superiors but the Tomorrow People let him know that they don’t distract themselves from their mission by helping mere homo sapiens. Oh, great, is this going to be one of those shows populated by psychopaths and idiots? I’m going to need a lot more Luke Mitchell shirtlessness, if things continue this way.

LIke Mitchell in "The Tomorrow Poeple"Yeah, that’s way too much clothing for dealing with Stephen’s idiocy.

Ghost Hunters (Syfy) 9:00 PM ET
The TAPS team heads to the Pennsylvania Asylum and Testing Lab. Unfortunately, my modest Google-fu wasn’t powerful enough to find out what kind of ghosts may haunt the location. It’s an asylum, so it’s bound to be awful.

Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles (Bravo) 9:00 PM ET
Much like its East Coast cousin, Million Dollar Listing‘s season finale promises that the drama will ramp up starting with Josh delivering a slap to other Josh. (I’ll be honest, the violence is testing my allegiance to Josh.) That’s not the only tension in Josh’s life, as looking for an new home leads to an ultimatum from Colton.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (FXX) 10:00 PM ET
Tonight’s episode (written by Game of Thrones scribes David Benioff and D.B. Weiss) is called “Flowers for Charlie” and if that gives you a good idea of how things start, you are a lovely, wonderful nerd. However, it doesn’t sound like we’re going to be watching Charlie’s journey. That would be heartbreaking. No, we get to see how the gang falls apart with no Charlie to do the “Charlie Work”.

Charlie Day in "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"Yeah, that’s enough to fill me with sads.

Nashville (ABC) 10:00 PM ET
Since the new Edgehill chief his a simpleminded CEO who wants simple answers, he’s demanding all of Edgehill artists come in a sexy package, even Scarlett who is clearly not the type to sell her sexuality. Oh, new Edgehill CEO, you send me searching for the CEO equivalent of Rosalind Shays stepping into that elevator shaft. In the meantime, I’ll just hope he steps into an elevator shaft.

American Horror Story (FX) 10:00 PM ET
Sure, Madame LaLurie faced a few modern shocks last week, but she’s got even bigger ones to face tonight as Fiona puts her in a maids uniform and learns a few things about current events. Oh, if only that could include tying her down to a chair Clockwork Orange-style and making her watch the entire series of I’ll Fly Away followed by Milk (to give her another reason to despair).

Kathy Bates, Gabourey Sidibe and Jamie Brewer in "American Horror Story"

Top Chef (Bravo) 10:00 PM ET
New Orleans’ food scene is more than gumbo, jambalaya and beignets, the city also has Vietnamese food as found in tonight’s challenge, which features an appearance by the amazing Eddie Huang.

Watch What Happens Live (Bravo) 11:00 PM ET
As is the Bravo tradition, a Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles finale must be followed by Josh, Madison and other Josh chatting with Andy.

@Midnight (Comedy Central) Midnight ET
Just as I was hoping for an excuse to mention how much I’m loving Comedy Central’s new panel show, they put out comic James Adomian on the panel.

What will you be watching tonight? Please share in the comments!
