TVLine Items: The Librarians Trailer, Boehner Off Tonight Show and More

The Librarians Season 2 Trailer

When TNT’s official trailer for The Librarians‘ sophomore season begins, Jake Stone & Co. feel confident they can vanquish any bad guy in their path.

A minute and 45 seconds later, they’re decidedly less sure of themselves — and rightfully so, based on the action-packed teaser.

Ahead of The Librarians‘ two-hour Season 2 debut (Sunday, Nov. 1, 8/7c), press PLAY on the video below to catch a glimpse of what the titular book-lovers will encounter this fall.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets?

* House Speaker John Boehner — who was a last-minute addition to Thursday’s Tonight Show lineup — has abruptly cancelled the appearance, following the unexpected news that Republican Kevin McCarthy has dropped out of the race to succeed him.

* Former Bad Teacher star Ari Graynor has joined the cast of I’m Dying Up Here, Showtime’s Jim Carrey-produced dark comedy pilot about the stand-up scene of 1970s Los Angeles. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Graynor will play Cassie, a smart, witty and ambitious comedian from Texas who wants to be taken as seriously as her male comic contemporaries.
