Broadway and the New TV Season: Thursday - Sunday

The second half of the TV week is kinda dull in terms of drama.  It is full of reality shows, reruns and sports.  Heck, there isn't anything comedy/drama-wise that is original on Saturday nights at all.  And only Friday nights offer any new programming featuring Broadway stars.  There are, however, many great actors returning to existing series, so at least there is that for us rabid theatre fans!

For a look at the new TV season, Monday - Wednesday, click HERE.

THURSDAY

Tim Daly, Taye Diggs and Audra McDonald of Private Practice

Returning from last year: CBS's Johnny Galecki  (The Little Dog Laughed) in Big Bang Theory; NBC's 30 Rock has Alec Baldwin (Twentieth Century) and Tony-winner Jane Krakowski (Grand Hotel, Nine); On ABC's Grey's Anatomy  there are Chandra Wilson (Chicago), Sandra Oh (Stop: Kiss), Tony-winner Sara Ramirez (Spamalot), original Dreamgirls gal, Loretta Devine, Kim Raver (Holiday), and James Pickens, Jr. (Balm in Gilead); CSI stars Laurence Fishburn (Thurgood)on CBS, while NBC's The Office features Rainn Wilson (London Assurance) and Melora Hardin (Chicago); FOX's Fringe features Blair Brown (Copenhagen); and ABC's The Practice  has 4 time Tony-winner Audra McDonald (Ragtime, A Raisin in the Sun, Master Class, Carousel), Timothy Daly (Coastal Disturbances), and Mr. Idina Menzel Taye Diggs (Wicked, RENT).
