TV Tidbits: ‘Cougar Town’ Nabs Premiere Date, ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Shatters Records



Dallas: Looks like a new Southern “Bell” is coming to — well, Dallas, obviously. Emma Bell — who you may know as a former member of The Walking Dead‘s Grimes Gang (she was Andrea’s little sister, Amy) — will play Emma Brown, a new regular on the series. Emma will be an innocent, sheltered gal when she first checks in, but something tells us it won’t be long before she gets sucked in to the dirty Dallas game. [Deadline]

Sons of Anarchy: Congratulations are in order for Kurt Sutter, Katey Sagal, Charlie Hunnam, and the rest of Charming’s boys in black. Tuesday’s explosive 90-minute SoA premiere brought in 5.37 million viewers — the highest-rated telecast in the show’s history. [TVLine]

Cougar Town: This news merits a celebration with Big Joe Big Carl Big Lou: The cul-de-sac crew will be back on their new network, TBS, on Tuesday, Jan. 8. To celebrate, Josh Hopkins and the gang created a music video that just so happens to feature the show’s biggest fan (and most talented extra) — Community‘s Abed Nadir. [Deadline]

Switched At Birth: Gilles Marini, the sexy Dancing With The Stars alum with an accent and coif to die for, has been promoted to full-time regular on ABC Family’s Switched at Birth. He recurred last season as Bay’s bio-dad, Angelo. [Deadline]

Glades: A&E’s flagship drama series will get another go! This will be the fourth season for the Matt Passmore-led series. [Deadline]
