The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the fifth and final one announced today. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on The CW.
After targeting teen girls for so long, The CW has widened their demographic focus and in the process have improved their fortunes with three of their five new shows from last year returning. One in particular, "Arrow," has been a big hit for them. As a result this year's line-up sticks heavily with genre fare - sci-fi, supernatural, and even a period piece.
The network's troubled "Nikita" has scored a six episode third season order to wrap up its story lines, no word on when those episodes will air just yet. In fact, specific premiere dates for all their shows have yet to be set.
Several other pilots didn't make the »

Jeremy and Alaric returned. Elena embraced her full humanity. And Bonnie... died?!?
Yes, the penultimate episode of The Vampire Diaries Season 4 gave our Round Table team of Matt Richenthal, Leigh Raines, Miranda Wicker and Steve Marsi plenty to discuss.
So gather around now and let's breakdown "The Walking Dead," shall we?
What was your favorite scene from the episode?
Matt: Locker 42. Bro-on-bro hug. The swiping of The Cure. It's safe to say I loved everything about Alaric's appearance.
Leigh: I have a feeling a lot of the Round Table is going to rank this scene pretty highly too: Alaric and Damon's reunion in the hallway. The use of the words "best friend," Locker 42, the bro-hugging. Cult is cancelled... can we have Matt Davis back now???
Miranda: Five words: Alaric.Saltzman. "Need a hand." Ahhh!!! Can he pleasepleaseplease stay forever? Julie, make nice with Matt Davis and keep him around! »

The Vampire Diaries Episode 422
Directed By: Rob Hardy
Original Airdate: 9 May 2013
In This Episode...
Bonnie has bound Katherine to her so she can’t stray away and start killing people while Bonnie works her magic. She goes to each massacre site to get things warmed up before heading underground, into the caves, to start the spell from the dead center of the expression triangle. Bonnie’s plan is to drop enough of the veil to allow her to talk to Katsia so she can find out how to stop Silas, and to ask her about making Katherine truly immortal (but I don’t think she ever actually intended to go through with it).
Elena has channeled all her emotions into rage, and is obsessed with killing Katherine. This doesn’t really make her less of a bitch than when she turned »

Deaths! Twists! Special ghost stars! It was a hell of a week in the neighborhood — literally.
It was the end of the world as we know it on the May 9 episode of The Vampire Diaries, and I felt fine. Actually, I felt great, thanks largely to the parade of familiar — and dearly departed — faces that paraded across my TV screen this week. Of course, not every visitor was a sight for sore eyes. And not every character survived the hour.
Is Bonnie Dead?
I won’t beat around the bush with this one: Bonnie Bennett (Kat Graham) is finally dead. I don’t mean “finally” like I was waiting for her to die — even though I kind of was — but that girl has been chilling on the brink of death since day one. Like, even more than the rest of the characters. She was able to turn Silas to stone using her expression powers, »

It’s The CW’s turn in the pickup spotlight.

You know we were just thinking to ourselves the other day... "You know what we need? We need Cabin Fever: Patient Zero to reboot the franchise and kick off a new trilogy!" Okay, so we weren't actually thinking that but apparently Voltage Pictures is.
Screen Daily reports that Voltage is handling Cabin Fever sales at Cannes, along with the original film's producer Evan Astrowsky, and they're developing at least two more films in addition to Patient Zero to create a new trilogy. Hooray!
Sean Astin and Brano Eaton are starring in the pic, which also has Jillian Murray and Ryan Donowho as part of the cast. Mitch Ryan, meanwhile, has stepped into the shoes vacated by Ben Hollingsworth, whose schedule was crunched when he booked a role on The CW’s midseason show "Cult".

Cult creator, Mr. Rockne S. O’Bannon is in the headlines today for making it onto Revolution‘s Season 2 roster. O’Bannon will settle into his role as current showrunner Eric Kripke’s right hand man on the set. Behind the scenes, O’Bannon will be especially crucial to the upcoming season.
Congratulations are in order because of Revolution‘s exciting second-season renewal. To celebrate, it looks the show added some muscle in the writers room, suggested the THR exclusive.
In addition to creating Cult, O’Bannon is also writer of fan-favorite, Defiance. He will act on Revolution, which of course is the drama from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot banner. The NBC network is treating Revolution as one of top scripted dramas in primetime. Is it worthy of such high praise in your book?
For O’Bannon, CW’s very short-lived series, Cult, was “a passion project” for the veteran sci-fi guy. »

Abrams' company, Bad Robot, is in negotiations to buy the rights to King's novel "11/22/63" with an eye toward adapting it as a miniseries or TV series, Deadline reports. The book is about a man who discovers a time portal and goes to the past to try to prevent John F. Kennedy's assassination on Nov. 22, 1963.
There's a bit of an existing Abrams-King connection already. King has sung the praises of "Lost," which Abrams co-created, in the past, and the show incorporated a number of references to King's writing in its narrative. There was even speculation that King wrote the "Lost" tie-in novel "Bad Twin," although that turned out not to be the case.

Following tepid-to-hostile reviews, lackluster ratings, and an unceremonious move to Friday nights, The CW has decided to stop living in a fantasy world where it airs a popular-to-the-point-of-dangerous procedural thriller Cult, closing the door to that fantasy by canceling the real Cult. The twisty conspiracy series has been pulled from the network’s schedule and replaced with repeats of Oh Sit! and The Carrie Diaries, the type of move that might incite horrifying violence on the part of Cult fans—if such people existed and were not simply the invention of the television series Cult.

From the sound of things, you should plan ahead and arrange for a group hug to be waiting for you
after watching tonight's Glee.
Syfy released a lot of news yesterday and probably the biggest revelation is that it ordered a fourth season of Being Human.
The channel also ordered a bunch of series and pilots. That included a pilot of High Moon from "television icon" (I'm going to use that title in the future, I sound too much like a fanboy when I call him a "god of teleplays") Bryan Fuller, and developing seven other dramas set in space. Every so often I'll see a complaint about how Syfy doesn't have any shows set in space (a big part of science fiction, admittedly), clearly they're trying to address that.
Syfy also ordered a few series including a horror anthology series from Jamie Foxx to air as part of Syfy's Halloween programming. »
The CW has dropped Cult from the schedule and cancelled plans for future airings. There are six installments left unaired.
The low-rated thriller series was shipped to Fridays after a disappointing premiere and it's performed dismally there, even for a Friday show.
There's no word on what will become of the leftover episodes but CW execs supposedly liked what they saw.
Essentially conceding the cancellation, series creator Rockne S. O'Bannon wrote, "#Cult Sadly true. CW Execs once called the last 5 episodes "outstanding". I guess too outstanding. You are great, Smart fans. Thx to u all!"
Reruns of The Carrie Diaries and Oh Sit!will fill the timeslot for the foreseeable future.
What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that Cult has been cancelled? Would you purchase the show on DVD to see the unaired »
Cult just hasn’t had the following they expected, so it’s being pulled from the CW schedule, EW confirms.
The show — starring Vampire Diaries actor Matt David and Supernatural’s Alona Tal — has most recently aired on Fridays, but it’s next scheduled airing has been pulled to make room for an encore of the Carrie Diaries finale. Subsequent scheduled airings are being replaced by encores of Oh Sit, the network’s musical chairs competition show. (Ouch.)
No one can blame the CW, though. From the starting line, Cult failed to garner buzz. After starting its run on Tuesdays, »

CW’s “Cult,” which premiered on February 19th, has been pulled from the network’s schedule. Per THR, “The freshman dud starring The Vampire Diaries’ alum Matt Davis has been completely removed from the network’s schedule, according to program listings The CW released Wednesday.” While it doesn’t look good for the series, there’s always the possibility that...

Turns out things can get worse for The CW's Cult. The freshman dud starring The Vampire Diaries' alum Matt Davis has been completely removed from the network's schedule, according to program listings The CW released Wednesday. While the network was unclear if the remaining episodes in the series -- which was moved from Tuesdays to Fridays after two weeks on the schedule -- would air, a network source said they might be available on other platforms, though it was unclear where or when that would be.

Looks like The CW's "Cult" needed more cultish devotion: The network has cancelled the freshman drama. The series premiered Feb. 19 to disappointing numbers, scoring a meager 0.3 rating/1 share in the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic and 941,000 total viewers. The show -- which hailed from "Gossip Girl" executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage -- wasn't helped by a timeslot shift to Fridays. The series, starring Matt Davis of the network's "Vampire Diaries" and "Melrose Place" star Jessica Lucas, had a »

The drama was in the unusual position of premiering in February, while many also wondered why The CW paired it with Hart of Dixie, a show with a very different fan base.
"Sadly true," creator Rockne S. O'Bannon Tweeted of the news. "CW Execs once called the last 5 episodes 'outstanding.' I guess too outstanding. You are great, Smart fans. Thx to u all!"
There are no plans to air these installments, however, as returns of The Carrie Diaries and Oh, Sit are scheduled over the next three Fridays. »

The network on Wednesday revealed its revised Friday night lineup spanning the month of April — and the Matthew Davis-starring drama is nowhere to be found.

"Cult" has been canceled, Zap2It was the first to report.
The show's creator Rockne S. O'Bannon confirmed the news via Twitter:

"Cult's" cancellation doesn't come as a surprise. The midseason series made its debut on Tuesday, February 19 and brought in a dismal 941,000 total viewers and only had a .3 rating in the key 18-49 demo.
After its second outing, which saw even lower numbers, The CW moved "Cult" to Fridays, which, for the teen-centric network, is not quite as deadly as is it on others. "Nikita" and "Supernatural" have both flourished on Fridays, but "Cult" did not. The most recent episode, which aired on Friday, April 5, brought in 620,000 total viewers and had a .2 rating.

Unfortunate news, "Cult" fans -- The CW has dropped the series from its Friday night line-up.
Starring Matt Davis, Alona Tal, Robert Knepper, and Jessica Lucas, the meta drama -- about strange doings behind-the-scenes of a cult TV show on The CW called "Cult" -- has struggled in the ratings since its debut. It was moved from Tuesday night to Friday night, which has proven successful for The CW's genre fare in the past, but even on its new night the ratings didn't stabilize.
The CW has no immediate plans to air the remaining episodes of "Cult." The cast and crew did film a 13-episode season, but only seven episodes aired. For now, the upcoming episodes have been removed from The CW's schedule.
For the next three weeks, the expected episodes (titled ""The Devil You Know," "Off To See The Wizard," and "The Prophecy of St. Clare") will be replaced »
