Today's TWoP News: Thursday, May 10, 2012

Cougar Town is going through with that name change after all... a different network, that is. TBS has nabbed the sitcom from ABC in a deal that makes room for a 15-episode Season 4 to premiere in 2013. The cabler as also bought the rights to run the show's first three seasons. I'll drink to that.

Fox is making waves today, by renewing Family Guy and American Dad, but keeping The Cleveland Show in limbo (no word yet about Bob's Burgers). On the live-action side, Touch is getting a season two, but Alcatraz (Boo!) and The Finder (Huh?) have been cancelled -- as have Breaking In and I Hate My Teenage Daughter to make room for newly-acquired sitcoms Ben & Kate, The Goodwin Games and Mindy Kaling's It's Messy, as well as a Kevin Williamson (a Vampire Diaries writer-producer) serial killer thriller starring Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy.

Grey's Anatomy fans will be happy to learn that Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, Sandra Oh, Justin Chambers, James Pickens, Jr. and Chandra Wilson have all renewed their contracts for another two seasons.

Can't imagine the MTV Movie Awards possibly being worse? Russell Brand has been chosen to host. Now, pay up.
