So Vampire Diaries stays in the same spot. Wish that had moved to Wed. My Thurs is so full at 8pm.
Mid season shows include THE CARRIE DIARIES & CULT.
I wonder where they are putting The Cult. That's Matt Davis' new show.
Wow. Why would they renew Nikita (a questionable decision already, given the ratings) - only to bury it in the Friday Night Death Slot, paired with a clearly incompatible lead-in?
(Yeah, I know that Nikita is already on Fridays... but at least right now it's in the 8:00 hour.)
Plus - with it being in the 9:00 hour, it puts it up against Fringe, another genre series with probably much of the audience being shared between the two shows.
Seems a questionable decision at best. Why not just cancel the show if you hate it that much?
Los Angeles and San Francisco are far from civilization? OK.
I'm going to guess that Cult will replace America's Next Top Model on Fridays in January. Cult/Nikita will be a much better pairing.
I wondered this too. And from purely selfish reasons, I hate it, since I am a huge Fringe fan. Imagine, a conflict on a Friday night? Who would have thunk it!!?
I seriously doubt there is much overlap in the Fringe and Nikita audiences.
According to Twitter, CW's schedule is 90% new or new timeslots. That's not a good thing.
Wait...on the old CBS version, wasn't Vincent always a beast (and, in fact, lived in a (literrally) underground society of "beasts")? Was some developer watching episodes from the old series and didn't notice when somebody threw in an episode of The Incredible Hulk or something?
In the original one, Vincent was disfigured, whose disfigurement just happened to be very lion-like (coincidence, I'm sure). I believe that he was discovered abandoned as an infant and raised by a collective that lived in abandoned sewer/subway lines. He was the only "beast," - the rest were just societal outcasts of various types.
The actors who play the brother were ready to end it, but CW gave them more $$$.$$$.00 per episodes. They make more money then YOU will ever see in your lifetime.
I like Person of Interest, Grimm, Once Upon a Time.
Nice stickied. Whisky keep it up!
Did ABC pass on their version of Beauty and the Beast?
I hope Beauty and the Best fails and they put Cult in its place. I think TVD preceding it would be nice TV for me.
The CBS Sunday line up has the been the bane of my viewing for a long time. More shows have bit the dust for me because they're too difficult to keep up with and keep from losing programs due to too many extended recordings.
However, that being said, one of the things I LOVE about my DirecTV DVRs is you can record the same channel with overlapping recording. In other words, I can record The Amazing Race, The Good Wife and The Mentalist, set all three recordings for 1 1/2 to 2 hours each, and it still only uses one tuner - with the overlapping times being recorded on two different program blocks.
As mentioned above, makes for more recordings that are extended length and can mess with space available, but I don't have to piece together separate recordings to watch the same show.
I used to screw around with Sunday night CBS shows like that, but I found it's far simpler just to cancel my SPs. That way, I don't have to dink around and worry about missing anything.
So it's official... Dan Harmon is out. He'll be a "consulting producer", whatever that means besides "we can't ignore that he created the show but we don't want him around it anymore".
Alan Sepinwall has a good essay discussing this and the (bad) history of shows replacing creators with distinctive voices (think West Wing, Gilmore Girls, etc.).
And Dan Harmon posts his own thoughts on his tumblr:
This makes me sad.
