Who’s ready for some television news? Good, because you’ve come to the right place. That could have been awkward. This Tuesday has more than just snow to offer. Related: if you’re affected by the wrath of Juno, we hope you’re staying warm and safe and leaving tauntauns alone. Cuddle up with a warm cuppa and read about the latest television highlights including a performance from the cast of Full House, Zachary Quinto not returning for Heroes Reborn, the SAG Awards winners, and David Tennant‘s latest role.
Everywhere You Look. Hold onto your hearts, children of the ’90s. Full House creator Jeff Franklin had a birthday party over the weekend and cast members of the family series not only attended, they sang the theme song. Oh yeah, it happened. Andrea Barber shared a video on Instagram showing her, John Stamos, Bob Saget, Lori Loughlin, Candace Cameron, Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, Franklin, and Jesse Frederick mostly remembering the words.

David Tennant Gets Villainous. Marvel’s Netflix series A.K.A. Jessica Jones just got more wicked, because David Tennant is on board! He’ll be portraying Zebediah Killgrave, a very creepy villain. If anyone can lood good with purple skin, it’s Tennant. Allons-y! [Nerdist]
No More Sylar. Though he previously expressed interest in returning to the world of Heroes, Zachary Quinto has confirmed he will not be back for Heroes Reborn. Series creator Tim Kring made an offer to him, but Quinto told Kate Aurthur, “I just felt like I need to cultivate other outlets for myself.” Yeah, but what would Sylar say? [TV Guide]
Prison Break In the 18th Century. Amazon is going period with a new pilot order. They’ve fallen for Casanova from Stu Zicherman (The Americans) and Ben Silverman (The Tudors, Marco Polo). The drama will focus on a time when Giacomo Casanova escaped prison and lived in exile in France. Ooh la la. I’m on the edge of my seat waiting to learn who gets cast as Casanova. [Deadline]

Here Are All The Tissues. Parenthood is wrapping up this Thursday (sob), and it’s sure to make viewers ugly cry through the weekend. If you want to get a head start on all the feelings, watch a two minute clip from the episode where Hank asks for Zeek’s blessing (sniffle). [Nerdist]
Oh No You Didn’t, Howard Stark. After a week off, Marvel’s Agent Carter is back tonight, and Peggy’s world is shaken up when Howard Stark returns. Will we learn what Stark and Jarvis have been keeping from Peggy? A sneak peek over at TVLine hints that something’s up.
You’re a Winner! The 21st annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards were handed out Sunday. ‘Tis the season! Television winners include Downton Abbey (the whole cast, not just the upstairs people), Orange Is the New Black, and Game of Thrones among others. Review the complete list of those who took home trophies at The Hollywood Reporter.
Return from Oz. Felicia Day is back as the charming Charlie in tonight’s episode of Supernatural, “There’s No Place Like Home.” She’s been off in Oz (as in Wizard of, not Australia) and something about her has changed. Quick, someone check to see if she’s wearing striped socks! [TV Fanatic]
Mutants On Television? X-Men is a hot franchise, and 20th Century Fox isn’t dumb. It looks as though they’re tapping Evan Katz and Manny Coto (24) to run a live-action X-Men television series. You have to wonder what Marvel will say about that. [Nerdist]
