When one show ends, another great show must begin.

The season premiere of NBC's Up All Night pulled in about 11 million viewers last night, beating the Big Brother finale as number one for the 10 PM timeslot. And let's just say the Free Agents numbers were proportionate to its laughs.

Although Kelly Kapoor applied for the position of regional manager at Dunder Mifflin's Scranton branch and expressed interest in a job at Anthropologie, actress Mindy Kaling is getting a different kind of promotion. Kaling, who also writes for The Office, signed a one-year deal to join actors B.J. Novak and showrunner Paul Lieberstein as an executive producer.

FX picked up Unsupervised, an animated comedy by Rob Rosell, Scott Marder and David Hornsby, all producers and writers for It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The show, which is about two optimistic boys and their teenage years and will be voiced by Justin Long, Fred Armisen, Alexa Vega, Kristen Bell, Kaitlin Olson and Romany Malco, in addition to Hornsby and Rosell.

One Life to Live's Josh Kelly has been cast in MTV's new comedy, Dumb Girls, along with Nico Evers Swindell (who played Prince William in Lifetime's William & Kate), Christina Evangelista and Xosha Roquemore. The show, created by Awkward.'s creator, Lauren Iungerich, will focus on a group of twenty-somethings, just like every other show upcoming on MTV. The only difference here is the title admits it's probably going to be terrible, which might be MTV's brightest - or dumbest - move yet.

And finally, in case you missed it: Last night, everyone's least-favorite-turned-sort-of-favorite-because-there-isn't-anyone-else-to-root-for houseguest Rachel Reilly won Big Brother.
