Ryan Seacrest is not wanted dead or alive.
It was reported the other day that The CW was only going to give Life Unexpected 13 episodes for its sophomore season, which makes the chances for a third season fairly slim. As viewers of this guilty pleasure, we just hope that the show will answer several burning questions for us while they still have time. No, not whether Cate and Baze end up together (we don't care), but the really important stuff.
OMG more Hellcats!
AMC's upcoming new series The Walking Dead has everyone talking -- and with good reason, since it's the first regular zombie show on TV, it's based on a great comic book and the early footage looks amazing. And withThe Hollywood Reporter asking if zombies are the next vampires (even though their comeback started way before the current vampire craze), we decided that America needs more zombies on television. But don't bother coming up with new series -- just convert existing series to a new zombie format! Like so!
My sincerest apologies: Los Angeles dominates the news today.
This week's TV releases are full of down to earth people just trying to make it in the world like Coach Taylor, Sarah Palin, and (i)Carly Shay.
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, Life goes on... but not for very much longer.
Our favorite Global Guts host fulfills our dreams, while our nightmare of Snooki invading TV beyond the Jersey Shore is close to becoming true. More product placement for the Bump-it, at least.
We can't help but feel a little bad for Katie Cassidy at the moment. She was the best thing on The CW, and they knew it, so they delayed officially canceling Melrose Place until after pilot season, essentially leaving her trapped on the network until next year's pilot casting rounds. And as such, she'll be guesting on Gossip Girl this fall, playing a love interest for Nate. Great -- we know what a fantastic opportunity that turned out to be for Joanna Garcia last season. Nothing like showing up on an established show past its prime to form an annoying new love triangle (I know he and Serena are done, but I know this show, so I know they are never going to be done) -- just ask Melissa George how awesome it is! So it sucks, and it just made me think of other, possibly worse ways the CW could have stuck it to Ms. Cassidy for (allegedly!) trying to leave the network last spring. You know they at least considered all of these at some point.
Although the end of this TV season is still over three months away, there's already plenty of speculation about which programs might get cancelled and which will get renewed, causing us to worry that some of our favorites won't be around this time next year. After we had expressed concern for the shows on the bubble last spring, most of them ended up getting yanked (Life), put out to pasture (Better Off Ted, which hasn't officially been killed yet, but looks like a hopeless case), shuffled off to bad timeslots (Fringe) or screwed over in unexpected fashion (Southland). This time around, we're hoping the TV gods (and executives) will be kinder to our pleas of clemency for these series:
