Also in the mix are Broad City‘s Stephen Schneider, Cougar Town‘s Collette Wolfe, Silicon Valley‘s Jimmy Ouyang, Reno 911‘s Kerri Kenny, See Dad Run‘s Alanna Ubach, Insidious‘ Lin Shaye, NCIS: Los Angeles‘ Jorge-Luis Pallo, Boardwalk Empire‘s Ivo Nandi and The Killing‘s Hugh Dillon.

Ordered for 10 episodes, Midnight will begin airing later this year.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* The INSP cable network (find it here) will tribute the late Ann B. Davis with an Alice-centric Brady Bunch marathon starting Thursday at 5/4c.

    The INSP link doesn’t work. I think it has the wrong TLD. Those are so great Alice episodes though. Glad INSP is doing a tribute.

  2. I have a feeling Crossbones’ ratings were the best they’ll ever be.

  3. Tony Lang says:

    Hurray for Gumball!!! That show is so completely bonkers it’s impossible not to laugh out loud!

  4. Martin says:

    Next Callers Collette Wolfe, that’s a bit mean – the episodes might of been filmed but they never aired. I would of went with Cougar Town – at least then it’s something the girl could be proud of.

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Glad two Enlisted stars are working together again. Wish Enlisted would get pickup from another network.

  6. Lore says:

    I dont care where Parkes goes, as long as he is back in my screen

  7. DavidSask says:

    Crossbones will go down in ratings fast!

    So CozBros isn’t happening it take it? Wow does Parker get casted quickly. Maybe they can bring in the older brother from Enlisted as well. Him and Parker had great chemistry
