While last night’s season finale of Dancing with the Stars brought in big numbers as viewers tuned in to see which contestant took home this season’s mirror ball, the ratings were still down from last season’s finale. Still, ABC pulled off a win for the night, beating out Fox’s The X Factor by more than ten million viewers.
It's becoming more and more common for movie stars to not only make the move to lead roles in television but to even show up in small guest roles. The very popular, original version of NCIS, now the number one scripted show on television, has just brought on a pretty special guest star for a two episode stint. The star? None other than Tony Curtis' daughter, Jamie Lee.
Oh, television crossovers, they are never very good are they? I shouldn't say never because the Flintstones/Jetsons crossovers were incredible, but that was because of the interesting clash of worlds, characters, and endless narrative possibilities. Yet, even the more mundane crossovers, like the one I'm reporting today, seem to make people salivate. Why? Maybe it's just me, but sending a cop from one police procedural to another just doesn't blow my skirt up.
And another one bites the dust...make that another four bite the dust. After just yesterday, when CBS dropped the axe on three of their Fall '10 debuts, The Defenders, $#*! My Dad Says, and Mad Love, they've now brought it down on the mid-season addition and spinoff, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior.
In case you thought NCIS creator Don Bellisario's abrupt ousting after disagreements with his star Mark Harmon was the last of it, here's a new litigious wrinkle to put to rest any swim into the sunset misnomers
We’re at the midway point of August and while that might mean the countdown to cooler weather and the return to school or work has already begun for some, it also means we’re just a few weeks away from the start of the new TV season. Up ahead is the primetime schedule for the Fall 2010 season.
This week CBS will premiere the spinoff to their popular drama series NCIS. We’ve got a series description, along with a video and some episode photos for those of you who are looking forward to NCIS: Los Angeles, which premieres this Tuesday night on CBS.
CBS has announced dates for their premiere schedule for the fall and you’ll find no surprises. We already knew that Medium was making the jump to CBS from the Upfronts
We’re in the final run for the network Upfronts as CBS has announced their fall primetime schedule. There’s nothing really notable here…oh wait, is that Medium I see on the new schedule?
Am I really that guy who would rather watch mediocre singing than hear what our president has to say? The Barack Obama Power Hour is returning to television next Tuesday, March 24. And you know what? I kind of am that guy
Overall television watching continues to trend higher than usual as America seems to be seeking an escape from all the political turmoil and the nation's financial woes. But ER, pimping left and right in the most desperate ratings stunts as it moves into its final episodes, can't seem to catch a break.
Fall’s not that far away and as the summer shows are beginning to wrap up, I’ve been finding myself wondering when to expect some of my favorite shows to return from the summer hiatus. So I figure now’s as good a time as any to get started on the big premiere schedule. We’ll be posting previews for all of the new and returning shows this season and as always, the schedule is a work in progress.
It looks like CBS is gearing up for a busy fall season. Based on their season and series premiere schedule, the fall season will officially start for the Eye with the premiere of Survivor: Gabon on September 18th. Following that, they’ll bring back their Monday comedy line-up with the premieres of The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Two and a Half Men and one of their new series, Worst Week.
CBS’s 2008 fall schedule is up and I don’t know about anyone else but I’m extremely pleased to see that How I Met Your Mother is on it. Unfortunately for the, the same cannot be said for the recently cancelled Moonlight but CBS has added a handful of new series to the lineup.
Spring is here and normally that wouldn’t mean all that much for TV premieres since most of the shows would probably still be airing new episodes. Spring is usually all about May sweeps but thanks to the strike, this year’s TV schedule has been all out of whack and spring truly has become the season of rebirth for scripted TV shows. For those of you who haven’t been keeping track of what’s coming back when, we’ve got the schedule all laid out for you!
