The Canadian Invasion Continues and I'm Hearing Fangirl Squee

While FOX has and Dollhouse and TSCC have been the talk of the day, ABC has been solidifying their fall lineup. I already had heard V with Alan Tudyk and Morena Baccarin had been picked up, though it looks like for thirteen episodes rather than the six I had originally read about. And considering Amy Acker is in Happy Town, I'm thinking she'll be helping Dollhouse with their cost cutting. But here was the surprising (to me) news:

Continuing its trend of green lighting quirky, high-concept shows, ABC is moving ahead with 'V', a revamp of the 1980s sci-fi series/miniseries, and Eastwick, a character-centric drama based on the John Updike novel and the Jack Nicholson movie, 'The Witches of Eastwick'. Actor Paul Gross will play the Nicholson role on Eastwick.

There is something seriously wrong with a world in which ABC is genre televisions best friend. O_o
The V remake is not only be picked up, but for twice as many episodes? And there's a tv spin-off of the Witches of Eastwick?

I went to sleep on the banquette for a couple of hours earlier today... which bizarre alternate reality did I wake up in? Forever Knight and Firefly will be back on screen next...
V? Really? Rilly rilly???? Oh. My. God. REALLY???

I had such a serious fangirl crush on Marc Singer back in the day. I even made a paper machier V alien mask, complete with rodent hanging out of the guy's mouth, for an art project in junior high to go along with the Yoda one I made in grade school. (Yes, I've always been a geek, so stop looking askance, lol.)
Wow.

Now I'm trying to figure out how many more times sexier than Nicholson Paul Gross is.

*feels a sudden, desperate need for her dS CDs.
The fangirl squee could have been me, seriously LOL, when I heard Paul Gross would be on TV. Happy Town and the ametuer sleuth show sound good too.
