Well, that was quick!
It looks like one show will be hanging around longer than we expected, and we might have a trend developing in crime dramas.
NBC has revealed the fall and midseason slate of new shows that are meant to save the network, and some of them look good! But some of them... do not, we'll say. I woke up bright and early this morning to attend the red-carpet portion of the network's upfront presentation to get season finale spoilers from current NBC talent, and to ask the new stars what the hell their shows are about and, in one case, why their show is so racist. (Also, while I couldn't get an interview with Tina Fey, I did eavesdrop the hell out of all her conversations, which were all about shrimp. Just a little tidbit.) Read on for all the information I could get out of strangers in two or three questions while their publicists desperately tried to tear them away from me.
You know how it seemed for many years there like Smallville would outlive us all? Well, it won't.
We've got to give Band From TV some credit. There are busy celebrities (well... some of them at least) who take time out of their day jobs (well... some of them at least) to play music and give the money to charity. It's nice to see that these TV stars (current and former) are giving back. The results are perfectly fine. They perform a mix of classic cover tunes and they're quite decent on their respective instruments. I'm sure Simon Cowell would have some snarkier critiques of their performances, but if you are a big fan of any of the actors, you'll probably be delighted with their recently released album Hoggin All the Covers.
It's a good day for action dramas, a bad day for Jewish girls, and another hopeful day for people who want Heroes to be cancelled.
