Morning Static: MAD MEN, SMALLVILLE, 24 & More!

Welcome to our new morning round-up of big/interesting TV news that you may have missed over the past 24 hours because unlike us, there’s a fairly good chance that have a life outside of the small screen.

2.8 million Americans reinforce the fact they’re indeed smarter than a fifth grader by tuning into MAD MEN’s record breaking third season premiere. [EW]

After umpteen seasons on 7th HEAVEN, David Gallagher is finally being let out of Hollywood purgatory, signing on (alongside WAREHOUSE 13’s Allison Scagliotti) to SMALLVILLE as the Wonder Twins. [io9]

Melissa Joan Hart and Debi Mazar’s career trajectories officially hit rock bottom with yesterday’s announcement that they’ll be just a few of the D-Listers to go DANCING WITH THE STARS. []

Just when you thought the new season of 24 couldn’t get any frakkin’ cooler (see the addition of Katee Sackhoff) comes the news that ALIAS baddie David Anders will be joining the cast as an ‘Eastern Promises’-style godfather. [Zap2it]

    I looked at the DWTS lineup (certainly don’t watch the 65+ demo show) , and is it me….or does each new season offer up a more boring cast than the year before? How many viewers sit at home and ask each other, “You ever heard of these people?”

    Yay to Mr. Sark on 24! And as for David Gallagher being in Hollywood purgatory, clearly someone didn’t seen that episode of Bones where he played a tattooed and pierced preacher. Or you did and you’re just not as obsessed with Simon Camden’s career as I am.
