Fox Orders The Greatest American Hero Revival

4 hours ago

Great news for superhero fans and classic 80s tv show fans! Fox has just ordered a pilot order for a reboot of the kooky ABC 80s show, The Greatest American Hero. The show starred William Katt, Robert Culp and Connie Sellecca, with William playing Ralph the superhero. However, unlike most he was given a suit that provides him his superpowers from aliens. Due to this and his behavior, he causes more troubles than benefit for his town. The show has yet to announce cast or premier date.

We are not sure why Fox decided to pick this show to reboot. It clearly didn’t go over well the first time and making it more modern will likely not fix it. It also doesn’t make Ralph look good or even some like a legit superhero. It just seems more of a joke than anything. However, with Fox’s track record »

Syfi Kicks Down The Wil Wheaton Project

16 hours ago

Syfi is cleaning house and one of those moves is to drop lifeless projects. Sadly that was the case for Wil Wheaton and his pet project The Wil Wheaton Project. The show aired one season with Wil hosting the show that served really as a random one. It turned out that the ratings were not enough to keep the network pleased with the short season over the summer. Here is what Wil had to say about the sad announcement.

(they) just didn’t think we had enough viewers to justify more episodes…..Oh, and let me just stop this before it starts: We nerds have a penchant for letter-writing campaigns and stuff to try and save shows we like. Please don’t do that here. It’s not going to happen, and we should instead put that energy into something else, like getting #butts to trend.

Fashion Police’s Joan Rivers In Coma

28 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT

Fans of E!’s Fashion Police have some sad news. Joan Rivers has been put into a medical induced coma due to surgery related cardiac arrest. During vocal cord surgery in a surgerical center, the very opinionated diva stopped breathing. She was secretly rushed to a hospital in NYC and is now in a medically induced coma. She has since been upgraded to stable after being listed as a critical condition case. Her daughter Melissa Rivers is with her mother. No word on how this affect the popular fashion critic series as they did have at least one episode stored away.

This is sad news as I have always loved her humor. She is a very funny and in your face, which is why everyone loves her. Hopefully she will recover fully and come out of this stronger than ever. As for her daughter, Melissa should look into having it »

Netflix Picks Up NBC’s The Blacklist

28 August 2014 7:06 PM, PDT

Netflix keeps on growing, as they just picked up NBC’s The Blacklist. The political drama has only had one season, but James Spader found success with it. Thus Netflix rushed to buy the rights for the show to stream. The show which was renewed early one of course cost a pretty penny. NBC knowing how many people wanting stream it, they set the bar high. Luckily Netflix is willing to pay what is being called the biggest purchase yet for online streaming. It is reported that they will pay roughly around $2 million per episode for season 1 (which holds 22 episodes). We assume a similar deal will be made for season 2, which kicks off in September.

This is good news for NBC as they search for success. The show of course follows their crime base success and it looks like it a good genre to stick to. However, it will be »

Jennifer Aniston & Courtney Cox Do Friends Skit

28 August 2014 5:14 PM, PDT

While we approach the 20 year mark of the hit series Friends premiering, fans have been itching for a reunion. Thus good ol’ Jimmy Kimmel decided to have Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow reprise their roles for a skit. They of course stuck to their usual character personalities, including a dig at Rachel’s sleeping with Monica’s brother. Of course they kept it classy and you can catch the tiny reunion in the video below. In the meantime, fans can always re-watch the series on DVD.

Now on to everyone is wondering, will a reunion happen? The show is coming at a big mark in its history and with so many shows being rebooted or revived. Thus this show that was a wide fan favorite would be a good option. However, most of the cast has moved on and away from the classic 90s show. Now it seems like Jennifer Aniston, »

A&E Cancels Longmire

28 August 2014 11:16 AM, PDT

A&E is cleaning out their TV close and Longmire is a causality. The western based drama is inspired by a series of novels by r Craig Johnson, lasted for 3 seasons. The show didn’t do bad in ratings, but performed badly in demo. Now fans have the bad news that A&E has kicked the series the curb. While they had kind words for it-it does not take back the not so kind words that they had to say about the fact that it was indeed cancelled off of their network. Here is what they had to say about the series.

We would like to thank the phenomenal cast, crew and producers of Longmire, along with our partners at Warner Horizon, for their tireless work on three seasons of quality dramatic storytelling. We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved together.

The good news is that Warner Horizon is not giving up hope. »

Kim Dickens Hints at Deadwood Possible Return

27 August 2014 7:23 PM, PDT

Kim Dickens was at the 2014 Emmy Awards and caught up with TVLine. While they talked about her latest show that just ended, they also touched on Deadwood. The popular HBO western ended before their typical short series of 4 seasons. Fans were upset over the show ending without a proper closure to the characters or story. Now it seems like Kim is hinting that if give the chance, fans may get the closure they all have been waiting for the last few years. You can catch her comments down below in the video.

Sure, it seems like nothing to really go on for the subject. But it seems like she and the rest of the former cast wishes for their fans to hold on to hope. Yes, it is possible but if they do get revived we doubt it will be on HBO. That network has moved on and with so many years gone past, »

French Shows Lands Netflix Deal

27 August 2014 5:41 PM, PDT

Netflix might be a Hollywood darling, but they have interest in international series as well. A good example of the news announcing a French based series coming to all countries served by them. Marseille is the title of the show that will deal with local corruption on the show. The political drama is expected to be a French styled House of Cards, with hopes of success for it. It will most likely kick off the eight episode show will start airing in late 2015.

The series creator Dan Franck said the following about the show.

Netflix has given us a blank page to create a House of Cards in French that breaks through unspoken hypocrisy. This is a writer’s dream and a great opportunity for French producers and creators to enter a new world

It is nice seeing Netflix growing their network beyond Hollywood. Sure, with no big names it may flop in the Us. »

Sci-Fi Series Nod Heads to Fox

27 August 2014 3:50 PM, PDT

Fox is looking for series that will put them back on the map of mature shows beyond cartoons. The network has battled a less serious image ever since the network started. Thus they decided to agree to pick up Adrian Barnes sci-fi book Nod. The book will be a TV series of the same name and based upon the sleepless tale. It follows the lives of the world and scientists who cannot see how the world can go on without sleeping. The citizens of the globe find themselves never feeling tired in the concept of the show. No word on who will star or when fans can catch the tale on TV.

Fans of the book should be happy to see the unique novel landing a good deal. While Fox could still kick the concept, it seems unlikely as they seek ways to be a decent network with real dramas. »

The Flash & Jane the Virgin’s Posters Released

27 August 2014 9:10 AM, PDT

CW is preparing their way for the premiers of new shows, which included the much talked about The Flash. The show follows the super hero character known by the name. It is expected to do as well as Arrow has. But CW is also trying to boost the image of Jane the Virgin, a show that have been hit hard by hate. It shares the critics opinion to salvage interest for it and to remind CW viewers why it was picked up. The Flash is a more simple poster. Both shows premier in October.

I am glad that CW has released both of them early-ish. I think it will certainly boost the PR for both shows. However, I am pretty sure the action packed The Flash does not need much of that. What they need more of support for is Jane the Virgin. While I love how the show sounds, »

NBA’s Rick Fox Joins The McCarthys

26 August 2014 8:35 PM, PDT

CBS just landed a sweet guest spot of Rick Fox from the NBA. He is set to guest star on this season of The McCaarthys. The show about a family who adores basketball seems to be a good match for this NBA star. His role has only been confirmed with no further details on who he will play or when it will air. The show follows the life of a basketball adoring family with an openly gay son who is on the team as his father’s assistant. However, he isn’t the best and puts much of the family under stress.

The show is an odd sitcom that seemed to take on a life of its own. CBSluckily is seeing the benefit of dealing with the topic and typical traits. The show will likely even see a nicer boost from Ricks spot, but we may also see a nice »

Full House Be See New Life

26 August 2014 8:15 PM, PDT

At the heels of Girl Meets World success, we may see another classic 90s show return. Full House is reportedly to be the next show with a new revival in modern days on the cast lives. The show’s cast members minus the Olsen twins have expressed desire to do a new series. The show has been much talked about as a possible one with most of the cast jumping for mini reunions. If the reports do turn out to be true, fans can expect most of the original team coming back behind the scenes.

We love this concept. The show has always been a classic and since most of the cast is willing to join it, we do not see a reason for them not to. Especially if networks are showing interesting in investing in more classic series revivals. It would certainly bring back family TV shows and nobody can complain about that. »

Walking Dead Has Gay Character Coming

26 August 2014 7:27 PM, PDT

After the much talked about sexuality of Daryl Dixon and how he may not be gay, The Walking Dead will have one soon. Now the series runner Scott M. Gimple says that we may see a new (and possible) gay side to Daryl in season 5. He shared that the idea of who he is will be explored while he slowly starts allowing more people into his life. Here is what Scott had to say about their possible coming out of Daryl and the promise of a male chaarcter who is gay.

We know all sorts of things about the characters that we haven’t revealed,[But] we’re not holding back information on Daryl’s sexuality as any sort of big reveal. The fact that there’s still a question as to what Daryl’s orientation is in Season 5 absolutely speaks to Daryl’s character; he is a very guarded, very »

Kim Kardashian Heads to 2 Broke Girls

26 August 2014 6:04 PM, PDT

Kim Kardashian is ready to get her acting career to take off, or at least to try again. The reality TV beauty has been confirmed to have a guest spot on 2 Broke Girls this season. She will be on the season 4 season premier playing an easy role, herself. She will be showing interest in Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs cupcake business that they started. We can only assume her role will be boosting the two ladies and their business in social media heaven. Here is what executive producer Michael Patrick King had to say about Kim’s guest spot.

They need a big bump, and providence sort of smiles on them when they find out that Keeping Up With the Kardashians is doing a segment in Williamsburg, and that they may make an appearance at their shop, the girls know what that kind of exposure would mean to them. And »

Lifetime Picks Up The Omen for Sequel TV Series

25 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT

The current desire for horror shows and thrillers is still going strong. Lifetime just ordered the anti-Christ based film The Omen as a TV series. Okay, it really just ordered a sequel TV series idea called Damien. Glen Mazzara is behind the short 6 season order of the show that jumps Damien straight to adulthood. Only in this loosely inspired concept, he will have no idea on whom he is or what surrounds him. The show is expected to premier sometime in early 2015 and so far no cast has been announced for the project.

Lifetime, which is a chick flick kind of network-has shocked the masses. The series isn’t part of their typical lineup and makes us wonder what inspired them to pick up such a dark concept. We will give the network a benefit of the doubt as we do not know much about Damien, but we all can »

No Big Bang Theory Wedding….Yet

25 August 2014 6:34 PM, PDT

Now that fans have started production at long last for Big Bang Theory, we get details on what fans can expect this season. Steven Molaro caught up with TVLine and shared a few details on Penny & Leonard’s engagement. Fans were hoping for the 8th season to feature their super nerdy wedding. Now it seems that fans will not see a wedding this season. With a three season contract, Steven seems not to be ready to rush it. Here is what he had to say about his plans for Leonard and Penny’s future in season 8.

I can’t say for sure, but I doubt it (about the wedding), They’re in a great place. They’re the kind of couple where they can be engaged for a while and that’s fine. In the first episode back [on Sept. 22], she will embark on a brand new career, and that will be »

Breaking Bad Wins Big at Emmy’s

25 August 2014 6:24 PM, PDT

AMC should be proud that Breaking Bad won big at this year’s Emmy Awards. The popular show ended in 2013 and has been extremely popular with fans who enjoyed following Walter White. Now fans can say the series truly ended with a bang! The show won as the Best Drama Series at the Emmy Awards 2014. This also came at the heels of Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston winning awards for their roles in the show. It has certainly proves that the show still has life beyond it’s expiration date.

We are glad that the show won big. It has been a unique one that put the stars on the map and AMC. With their hopes for the sort of prequel, it is possible that they may find a way to squeeze even more life out of it. In the meantime at least we have the DVDs and Netflix to relive the great show. »

Katey Sagal Reflects on Soa’s Season 6′s Death

25 August 2014 6:08 PM, PDT

As we approach the 7th and final season of Sons of Anarchy, the 6th season is coming to a DVD release. Thus they include chats over the season and Katey Segal tackles the common subject of death. Last year we saw Gemma Teller Morrow’s ex Clay die and Katey felt that his death was justified. In the behind the scenes look she shared that his death was done in time, perhaps even going as far as to say the death was long over do. You can catch her comments in the video below.

The show is no stranger to death, thus we are not shocked by Katey or Kurt Sutter comments. The show takes no mercy on characters, The show has seen many faces come and go without losing sleep over it. No character is ever too safe, leading some to believe Jax may be the next to go in the series final. »
