TNT’s original feature-length trilogy based around an information manager who vies to shield mankind from unspeakable evil, has been developed into a fully-fledged TV series. Star of The Librarian franchise, Noah Wyle, returns to rope together a gaggle of data wranglers this time for The Librarians. So far, the show has been granted a weekly ten-episode run. It’ll presumably bag an order for future episodes if the ratings show promise, and judging by our first preview trailer, they’re gonna be up there.
A heady mix of adventure, slapstick quips and action, the preview appears to be going for an amalgamation of every successful fantasy series… but it’s way, way funnier than it has any right to be. Taking a stab at the old “librarians are stuffy” stereotype, the hilarious opening narration is absolutely spot-on.
Venturing further into the preview, we’re introduced to this new iteration »

Following three TV movies over the past decade or so, TNT decided a while back to turn its "The Librarian" franchise into a regular TV series. Now the results can be seen in a new full-length trailer for "The Librarians" released today by the network.
While Noah Wyle led the charge in the telemovies, here he takes a back seat and will pop in and out in a recurring role as the enigmatic supervisor of a new group of characters who will take on the task of looking for artifacts with mythical powers around the globe.
Said new faces include the likes of Rebecca Romijn ("X-Men"), Emmy winning comedian John Laroquette, Christian Kane ("Angel"), Lindy Booth ("Dawn of the Dead") and Australian soap star John Kim. Look out for a Bruce Campbell cameo too in the trailer, whilst the likes of Bob Newhart and Jane Curtin will pop up in the show. »

There’s something rather silly about a show featuring a band of heroic librarians and there’s also a miserable looking CG environment mere seconds into this video, but if you do manage to get passed the 30-second mark, there is some charm to the self-deprecating humor in this trailer for TNT’s new show, The Librarians. This one stars Noah Wyle as Flynn Carsen, a member of an ancient organization hidden underneath the Metropolitan Public Library committed to protecting the world from the unspeakable evil in a hidden magical reality. Flynn’s good at his job, but he can’t do it alone so recruits four new people to battle dark magic with him. Hit the jump to check out The Librarians trailer. The show also stars Rebecca Romijn, Christian Kane, Lindy Booth, John Kim and John Larroquette, and debuts on TNT on Sunday, December 7th at 8pm. Via TNT. »

Fired Apprentice candidates Lindsay Booth and Nurun Ahmed have compared rival candidate James Hill to "an uncontrollable puppy" and "24-hour mini-mart", due to his inability to ever shut up or calm down.
Hill escaped the chop in the final boardroom on last night's (October 23) show, but his axed rivals believe that he needs to ease up on the chatter if he wants to progress far in Lord Sugar's reality show.
Booth, who was fired before the final boardroom due to her lack of enthusiasm for the process, said: "He is like an uncontrollable puppy. You can try to ignore him, but he's uncontrollable."
Ahmed was fired instead of Hill in the final showdown and she admitted that he was "credible" as a candidate, but added: "I describe him as a 24-hour mini-mart. He never shuts.
"But he is a bright boy with plenty of potential. Lord Sugar can clearly »
The swimming academy owner said that she didn't have the "confidence" or "arrogance" to compete with her rivals on the show.
Booth was fired by Lord Sugar before the final boardroom after confessing that she wasn't up to the challenge of battling against the other 17 candidates.
"I just didn't have the confidence to do it and it was making me feel down," she told Digital Spy.
"When we lost the task I thought it was my time to go, and if I stayed quiet I'd be brought back in the boardroom and get fired from there. But Lord Sugar started questioning me before that and I just thought, 'I'll tell him how I really feel'. »
The Apprentice review: A stinker of a scented candle task
Speaking about her exit, swimming instructor Booth said: "I knew from the start really that I was out of my depth. I tried so much to get involved but I just don't have the confidence that they all have."
The 29-year-old believes that the other contestants wouldn't be up to doing her job, saying: "If I was to say to them, 'come and teach the children to swim' they wouldn't know where to start.
"It's a really rewarding job and it's a job that I love and I don't want to give it up or do anything else."
She added: "Going into something »
The duo found themselves in the firing line after a scented candle task, which Team Summit lost by just £14.77 after failing to stick to their pricing strategy and selling their products at too low a margin.
Booth - who struggled in the production section of the task and only managed to sell one candle - essentially removed herself from the competition by admitting that she was out of her depth.
Acknowledging that she had not done well, Booth never fought for her place in the process and said: "I haven't been the person I thought I was going to be when I came here. If anything, »

(Author’s Note: This is part of an ongoing series where Bj Colangelo takes a trip down memory lane and talks about the kid friendly horror TV shows from the 1990s/early 2000s that helped shape her into the horror loving fangirl she is today.)
NBC ruled Saturday mornings from 1991-1992 with Eerie, Indiana a show I would definitely call the Firefly of children’s supernatural programming. Way ahead of its time and a kid’s show that is just as effective now as it was 20 years ago, Eerie, Indiana was a misunderstood masterpiece. Created by Jose Rivera (the first Puerto-Rican screenwriter to be nominated for an Oscar) and Karl Schaefer, the show managed to nab Joe Dante (The Howling, Gremlins) as the creative consultant. The show was weird, funny, creepy, but still maintained a charming “junior high” attitude about the whole thing. The story followed Marshall Teller, a New »

TNT has greenlit 10 episodes for a series based on The Librarians franchise, slated to air in late 2014. The TV movies told the story of a group of extra special librarians who live beneath the Metropolitan Public Library in New York and safeguard mystical relics from forces of evil by slapping them with outrageous overdue fees. The plot is a messy stew of Indiana Jones, National Treasure, and Hell Boy …but the product is less than the sum of its parts.
