The Event has been thrown a life raft of sorts...
Coming soon: A Time to Kill: The Animated Series!
Jorja Fox is finally full-time (again).
Looks like The Firm is on the chopping block this season.
So this network upfront actually broke some news, albeit unsurprising news that no one really cared about, but news nonetheless. Towards the end of the very lengthy two hour presentation, Donald Trump came out to announce that he was going to continue making money on The Celebrity Apprentice and not take a run at the presidency. He made it sound like he was doing us a favor, but I cover entertainment television, so having him stick around on reality TV isn't really helping me at all.
Aside from that, the rest of the presentation was fairly typical, and filled with all the NBC executives reminding us as frequently as possible that The Voice is a big success. I tried keeping count of how often they mentioned the show's name, but they worked it in so seamlessly to nearly every segment that it was almost impossible. And just when I thought they couldn't mention it one more time, they had Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo come out at the end of the presentation to sing. Fortunately, I was already heading out the door at that point.
So he can kiss you any time he wants...
This book and movie came out so long ago that I was still in college. So you know that it is old, but while this series is set a decade later, Mitch McDeere is still finding himself in a whole heap of trouble. You'd really think he'd have learned by now. There were elements of NBC's The Firm that I enjoyed, but those happened mostly at the bookends of the pilot while the stuff in the middle just wasn't enticing enough to convince me that this will be my next new legal addiction. I've already got The Good Wife to occupy my Sundays, and if I want more shady law firm drama, I'll just wait until Suits returns.
Everybody's "favorite" TV doc is in high demand!
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.
