I'm excited about Sunday's release of Fox's new episodes of "Arrested Development. " In my household, we've been watching old episodes of the cult-favorite series that ran on Fox from 2003-2006, to reacquaint ourselves with the Bluth family. Not that we'd forgotten them in the last few years. The characters were way too memorable for that. Gob, Lindsay, George Sr., Michael, George Michael, Buster, Lucille, Maeby -- all are indelibly hilarious. In recent interviews, most of the actors behind the characters sound delighted to return to the Bluth family.

"Arrested Development" cast members David Cross and Portia de Rossi discuss their favorite pieces of clothing from the show -- and hypothesize what a female "never nude" might wear -- in a video posted to YouTube on Monday. The video, which runs slightly more than five minutes, consists of the actors answering Twitter-submitted fan questions about the show, starts with Jessica Walter, who plays boozy matriarch Lucille Bluth, answering questions about her character's signature one-eye wink, her proclivity for potable breakfasts and whether the "Lucille" name or the "loose seal" jokes came first.

Given the success of TV Land's first sitcom, "Hot in Cleveland," it was inevitable that a second would be forthcoming, and predictable too that it would again enlist and target the older demographic that is the nostalgia-forward network's natural constituency. Setting sail Wednesday night , "Retired at 35" has at its prow George Segal (b. 1934), who logged seven seasons in "Just Shoot Me!" in the late '90s and early '00s, and Jessica Walter (b. 1941), who spent three years not long ago being brilliant on "Arrested Development.

Just two days before "Arrested Development" would release its first new episodes in seven years, creator Mitchell Hurwitz called David Cross with a frantic request: Could the actor do a quick reshoot? Cross, however, was sporting a full, dyed beard for another project and looked nothing like his "Arrested" character. No matter, Hurwitz told him, "We'll figure it out. " The next day the actor found himself on a hastily arranged set, filling in a gap on the series that would premiere in Hollywood the following day. "It's crazy!"

He's the guy getting a lot of ear action. Tony Hale is back as the vice president's boy Friday in HBO's political comedy "Veep. " In the midst of Washington chaos, he's never too far from Selina's (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) ear, ready to whip out hand sanitizer from his beloved man purse or scour her closet for the perfect clutch.
