‘This Is Us’ Move To Thursdays Was Thwarted By Creator Dan Fogelman’s Big Fall Plans for The Hit Show

9 June 2017 4:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

NBC sacrificed “Must See TV” for the sake of “This Is Us.”

The Peacock network had big plans this season to bring back the storied “Must See TV” label by moving “This Is Us” to Thursday nights this fall – along with the return of “Will & Grace”). But NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke told fans at the Atx Television Festival on Friday that the network abandoned those plans in order to air more episodes in the fall. (“Must See TV” may still be resurrected for the night, however, as “Will & Grace” remains there, among other things.)

Now, by keeping “This Is Us” in its Tuesday slot behind “The Voice,” the show will air 10 consecutive episodes this fall. On Thursdays, there was only room for six episodes before “Thursday Night Football” took over the night.

It Came From The Tube: Cast A Deadly Spell (1991)

12 March 2017 12:19 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Melding together genres seldom works. It’s a delicate balancing act; tone is key, and when either (or both) are off the whole thing can come crashing down. By 1991, HBO was already offering up original programming and decided to create a whole new sub genre – horror noir. The result was Cast a Deadly Spell, a very entertaining and perfectly concocted mixture of 1940s detective story and supernatural terror. And when the balance is right, like it is here, the results are sublime.

Originally airing on HBO on Saturday, September 7th, CaDS was met with critical acclaim as a riotous mashup of Bogart and the Dark Arts, treating audiences to a unique blend of murder and magic.

Let’s open up our sacred book of incantations, TV Guide, and see what we’re in for:

What to Expect on ‘Nashville’ After Connie Britton Shocker

24 February 2017 10:08 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead if you have not watched “Nashville” Season 5, episode 9, titled “If Tomorrow Never Comes,” which aired on Cmt on Thursday, Feb. 23.

Connie Britton’s “Nashville” character, Rayna, was killed of this week’s episode of the country music series, sealing Britton’s fate — the actress is leaving the show.

Britton’s decision to leave the show was a creative choice that was made soon after the show moved from ABC to Cmt, according to “Nashville” showrunner Marshall Herskovitz.

“When Cmt picked up the show, Connie came to [co-showrunner] Ed Zwick and myself and said that she felt inner conflict. She felt that creatively, she wanted to move on from the show, and she was very torn because she loved the show. She loved the people on the show and it was like a family, but after four years, she felt she needed a different challenge, which is something I really understand as an »

From VHS to VOD #1

30 January 2017 10:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I can often spend hours upon hours trawling through iTunes looking for new movies to buy… Usually I’ll randomly come across a title I haven’t seen in years and use the “Cast & Crew” links to make my way down the rabbit hole to the more obscure side of Apple’s digital movie service.

Now whilst many will decry that iTunes is a terrible VOD service due to Apple’s desire to lock its audience to their platforms, if you have an Apple TV or iPad be aware – there are some truly obscure films hidden away in the depths of the vast collection of movies. Some of which have been made available in the UK for the first time since VHS and a Lot that have been added to the service in their original uncut form!

So, with »
