From LA Examiner: 'Awkward' Renewed But What About A Movie?; Lucas Neff Teases 'Raising Hope's' Premiere; JoAnna Garcia Swisher Talks 'Animal Practice'; Adam Harrington Goes From 'The Secret Circle' to 'The Mob Doctor'; 'The Short-Com Comedy Hour' Announced...

Though MTV airs its sassy high school comedy Awkward during the summer months, its characters are always trapped in other seasons, which keeps them confined to their school. It means all the more special occasions for us, as they attend football games and pep rallies and dances, but it also at times leaves us to wonder just what these kids would be like if they could really let loose without having to worry about the person they may still posture to be in the halls or when surrounded by cliques...

"Lucas Neff teases a "big life change" coming in the Raising Hope S3 premiere"

These days, though, Harrington is sitting pretty (and a bit more grounded in reality) over on FOX' The Mob Doctor, and we have already pledged to create a #MoreYork hashtag for him there, if need be.

"The Short-Com Comedy Hour coming to FOX, Summer 2013"

In a little bit of straggler TCA news, FOX announced today the launch of a new programming platform coming next summer. The Short-Com Comedy Hour will feature four "shot-coms" in an hour-long TV broadcast. Each short-com will feature established actors as well as some up-and-comers in one-act scenes, creating a new kind of showcase for the best and brightest voices. We sense a lot of UCB style Funny or Die action to take over as of Summer 2013! ... [MORE]
