Last-minute network addition: CBS is pre-empting its regularly scheduled programming at 9 p.m. ET tonight to present an instant special honoring Mary Tyler Moore. Gayle King and her best friend, Oprah Winfrey, are among those paying tribute. For our tributes here at TVWW, read Ed Bark’s Uncle Barky’s Bytes, David Hinckley’s All Along the Watchtower, and my own Bianculli’s Blog.

SEASON PREMIERE: The second season of Aaron Paul’s post-Breaking Bad TV drama surfaces today on Hulu. He plays Eddie, a man who becomes involved with a cult religion known as the Meyerists. In last season’s cliffhanger, Eddie left the religion, and his family. In Season 2, we get to witness the fallout from that emotional decision. Michelle Monaghan, Hugh Dancy co-star.

Man Seeking Woman has made the most of this season’s juicy story arc, which has Josh (Jay Baruchel) exploring all the ramifications of actually committing to a woman. In his case, it’s Lucy (Katie Findlay), who has been around since the opening scene of this current season. Tonight, Lucy takes Josh to meet her parents, and gets upset with his reaction to them. Not because he doesn’t get along with them – but because he does.
