TVLine Items: Manganiello on Mom, Undateable Ups the 'Live' and More

The latest addition to Mom‘s cast is a real dog wolf.

True Blood vet Joe Manganiello will guest-star on the CBS comedy’s upcoming third season, EW.com reports.

Manganiello will appear in one episode as Julian, an Alcoholics Anonymous newcomer whom Christy takes under her wing… as long as she doesn’t get distracted by his good looks.

Mom returns on Thursday, Nov. 5, at 9/8c; Manganiello’s episode is expected to air sometime this winter.

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

* Beginning with tonight’s episode, Undateable will broadcast live for both the East and West Coasts for the remainder of the season, NBC announced Friday.

* The Walking Dead‘s Nov. 1 episode will run 90 minutes, during which AMC will debut the trailer for its upcoming drama Preacher (based on the comic books by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon).

* The Paley Center for Media will honor 40 of the most beloved animated characters during TV’s Funniest Animated Stars, a two-hour special airing Monday, Dec. 7, at 8/7c on Fox.

    I wondered how long the “live” experiment would last for “Undateable”

    What does “tape live” mean? The premier was live-live as they said the score of a live baseball game. Don’t know what happened after that as I haven’t watch it since.

      They only taped live for the east coast and re-played that one for the rest of the country.
      Now they will do one for the east coast and one for the west coast. There will be subtle differences and maybe different jokes on each one

  3. Our Crystal friends know who they can help and will reach out to
    us in their own way. Choose whole-wheat breads, rice,
    pasta and cereals instead of regular. Warming up your muscles prior to
    an intense exercise workout is an important step to incorporate in your fitness program.

    Would rather Undateable episodes be expanded to an hour. Now the cast and crew have to sit around for an extra three hours. There are worse things, but I worry for morale…

    Nomination for line of the week? Danny yelling at Candace last week: “You weren’t the real star of ‘Good Luck, Charlie’ – the parents were!” And her in character response that fit perfectly: “Justin! Are you going to let him TALK to me like that?!” Hilarious.

    really loving the live element of undateable, just wish NBC would put up both tapings on their website!
