- NBC’s new comedy About a Boy saw a rise of 10% from last week’s numbers to a 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demo and 7.95 million viewers, no doubt benefiting from The Voice as a lead-in.
- Also up was Fox’s Glee, which aired its 100th episode celebration to a 1.1 rating and 2.84 million viewers. That’s up 22% from last week’s series low, but still a far cry from the show’s numbers a few years ago.

Even though Pixar won’t be fielding a feature film this year, Disney-Pixar had such success with last year’s Toy Story holiday short that they thought they’d do it again this year. ABC announced a new holiday special titled Toy Story That Time Forgot, which will air during the holidays late this year. During a play date, the toys meet up with a set of too-cool action figures who turn out to be dangerously delusional.
The short features Tom Hanks as Woody, Tim Allen as Buzz, Kristen Schaal as Trixie, Kevin McKidd (Grey’s Anatomy) as Reptillus Maximus, Wallace Shawn as Rex, Timothy Dalton as Mr. Pricklepants, Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head and Joan Cusack as Jessie.
