It might not seem true, but not everything is targeted at millennials. TV Land, born as an offshoot for Nick at Nite's reruns of classic TV, has been trying to reinvent itself as a hub for sitcoms geared toward Gen Xers, the once-ballyhooed generation now smack-dab in the middle of adulthood, looking to escape their ever-growing bundles of joy with a little TV. That strategy works exceedingly well for the The Jim Gaffigan Show. Starring Gaffigan, the King of Clean Comedy, it premieres at 10 p.m. Wednesday.

FARRAH FAWCETT, whose one season on "Charlie's Angels" more than 30 years ago helped define her for millions, spent decades trying to prove that she was more than a hairstyle and an iconic swimsuit poster. And over and over, from her first Emmy-nominated performance as a battered wife who fought back in "The Burning Bed" to documenting her own nearly three-year fight against the anal cancer that killed her, Fawcett, who died yesterday at St. John's Health Center, in Santa Monica, Calif.

We must have been having an awful lot of fun. Where did the time go? Jane Leeves, the lovably loopy Daphne from Frasier , is 49. Valerie Bertinelli, the adorable younger sister from One Day at a Time , is 50. Wendie Malick, the boozy fashion editor and former supermodel in Just Shoot Me , turns 60 in December. And Betty White - well, she's always been pretty old, but now she's 88. The quartet comes to TV Land in the network's first original scripted program, Hot in Cleveland (premiering at 10 p.m. Wednesday)

* "The Exes," 10:30 tonight, TV Land. * "I Hate My Teenage Daughter," 9:30 tonight, Fox 29. YOU MIGHT think it's casting that makes a TV show a hit. A big name does have a certain draw when it comes to the initial episode of a new series. After that first date interest is gone, the success or failure falls squarely on the writers' shoulders. Think of it this way: Jerry Seinfeld has the acting skills of a walnut. That didn't stop him from starring in one of the best comedies of all time, because the writing was so phenomenal.

'I love her voice," says Fran's date, in TV Land's new sitcom, Happily Divorced, which premieres Wednesday at 10:30 p.m. "Give it time," says her ex-husband. It has been a while since we've had Fran Drescher and her lovable honk in a sitcom. The Nanny closed down in 1999. Living With Fran had a little run six years later on The WB, but hardly anybody saw it. It's like a long-lost lullaby when Fran rolls over in bed at the top of the show and asks her anxious husband, "Whatsa mattah, Peetah?

Filmmaker Wes Craven isn't the first guy to hit on the concept that television is evil, but he is the first to dramatize the idea with a movie about a killer who attacks people after materializing from their TV sets. Subtlety, as you might surmise, is not the hallmark of "Shocker," Craven's new picture. And aside from its flagrant symbolism, the movie is also often corny and frequently stupid. It's a miracle that it manages to be entertaining. But then, a miracle is what "Shocker" is all about - the miracle of television.

Logo has acquired off-cable syndication rights to all 100 episodes of FX's "Nip/Tuck" and will begin running it in October, the gay-themed network announced last week. "Nip/Tuck," a show about plastic surgeons, was created by Ryan Murphy, the producer behind Fox's "Glee. " Hotter in 'Cleveland'? Joe Jonas will play Valerie Bertinelli's son in the Aug. 11 episode of "Hot in Cleveland," according to TV Land, which can only hope its viewers will be as excited by the appearance of an actual Jonas Brother as they seem to be about Betty White.

Tony Award-winning actor and star of TV Land's hit comedy Younger , Sutton Foster just flew in from Australia, and, boy, are her arms tired. "It was a really long flight and a long, but happy night," says Foster, who performed the music of composer Stephen Schwartz ( Wicked , Pippin ) in Sydney right before this interview from her home in Brooklyn. "What he does that no one else does is 'I want' and 'I can get' songs," she says, pointing out theater staples such as "Corner of the Sky" and "Defying Gravity.

DO WE really have to lose "The Cosby Show"? Don't look here for a defense of Bill Cosby. I believed accuser Andrea Constand in 2005 and nothing that's happened in recent days has surprised me, much less changed my mind. I understood why NBC was finally ready to drop the idea of a new Cosby sitcom - it never seemed like a very good one, anyway - and why Netflix decided that Thanksgiving weekend might not be the right time to release a new Cosby special. I'm not sure, though, that TV Land needed to take the Huxtables off the air just because the man who brought them to life isn't the man he pretended to be. Because it's all pretend, you know.

Not just because it was so good, which it was, but because making 13 episodes available at once allowed "Orange" to transform itself from a show about the incarceration of one formerly...

    AKRON, Ohio - When the comedy "Hot in Cleveland" begins a run of new episodes at 10 tonight on TV Land, it will start with some extra drama. The first episode will air live. No film. No tape. No retakes. Excellent opportunities for on-air bloopers, unscheduled bursts of actors' laughter and maybe a curse or two. Just look at blooper reels from the show, especially those times when Betty White's reactions set off other performers. Andy Cadiff, director of tonight's episode, "Buying the Pharmacy," said, "These ladies are so talented, that once they set their mind to what the goal is, they're going to accomplish it. " The ladies are, of course, Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves, as three West Coast women who have relocated to Cleveland, and White as a local resident with a smart mouth and a colorful past.

There's no delicate way to put this: On the first day of work on his new job, newspaper writer Geoff Edgers castrated a bull calf. Later that day, he ate the harvested organ after it was sliced, battered, and deep-fried. If that wasn't enough, he also had to eat a still-beating rattlesnake heart. Edgers is writer, co-creator, and host of a new weekly Travel Channel show, Edge of America , that takes the Boston Globe reporter on "the great American road trip" to experience firsthand some of the things Americans like to do for fun. Set in a different state each week, including Minnesota, Oregon, California, and, yes, Pennsylvania, the 13-episode first season premieres Tuesday at 9 p.m. The debut puts Edgers right smack in the middle of the Union, in Oklahoma.
