This fairy tale isn't going anywhere.

NBC picked up Grimm for a full season, and will be trying out the procedural in the Thursday 10 PM timeslot, beginning December 8. We would've preferred a full hour of Community, personally.

NBC ordered two more episodes of Up All Night, bringing the full season count to 24 episodes. So that'll be, what, 30 more minutes of Ava acting in-sahn?

Super funny person Andrea Rosen will star in Showtime's comedy pilot The Andrew Gurland Project, opposite... Andrew Gurland.

Kimberly McCullough, who played Robin Scorpio on General Hospital, one of the only soap characters to age in real time, is leaving the show to pursue directing. Surprisingly, she won't be replaced, but rather killed off "exiting the show."

Katy Perry will host the December 10 episode of Saturday Night Live with musical guest Robyn. What happened, SNL?! You were doing so good host-wise!

Muppet fever hasn't left NBC following last weekend's SNL. NBC is making The New Nabors, a sitcom about a human family who lives next door to a puppet family, with The Jim Henson Company. They should probably do a crossover with Kenneth from 30 Rock.

This season's latest trend is officially the Western: Screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind, I Am Legend) recently signed a deal with HBO and his first project is... a Western, Doc, based off Mary Doria Russell's novel about Doc Holliday.

Bravo is expanding Watch What Happens Live from two new episodes a week on Sundays and Mondays to five nights a week at 11 PM, beginning in January. Do we really need that much Andy Cohen in our lives?
