Caffeine – January 22nd Edition

Happy Sunday! Things are getting back to normal after the TCA Press Tour, but we’ve got a bunch of pilot and casting updates for you . . .

Cougar Town wants to be your valentine – it’s returning on February 14.

Looks like Sherlock will get a third series. Yay.

The Treme season premiere has been delayed until fall.

Hulu has ordered a slate of original programming.

Some interesting pilot pickups:
ABC has a supernatural drama.
CBS has state troopers and a modern Sherlock Holmes.
The CW has Green Arrow and Beauty and the Beast remakes and a Sex and the City prequel.
FOX has a teen spy and a CIA office drama. Thematic!
Syfy has a time travel action thriller.

FX did not pick up the Powers pilot, but they say it’s not dead yet, either. For what it’s worth.
