Your Fall Viewing Guide

We’ll be in TV overload for a couple weeks here. There isn’t a good movie coming out for more than a month and with the Emmys coming Sunday (picking the winners in Friday’s blog) and a new TV season on the way, there’s gonna be plenty of TV to cover. For now, it’s the fall […]

Comic-Con 2010 Pick Up

2011 already seemed old at this weekend’s Comic-Con. Just a couple years ago, it was considered pretty groundbreaking when a movie cast/team would show up at Comic-Con to promote a movie that wasn’t premiering for another year. When the Iron Man cast did it in 2007 to tout the 2008 release, trailer in hand, people thought […]

Pinch Me — the Emmys Got It (Close to) Right

Every year I loathe Emmy Nomination Day. Every year, I get my hopes up that the best work in this golden age of TV will be recognized. I wake up hopeful, charged-up and with my fingers crossed. Every year, those hopes are dashed when the likes of Boston Legal and Two and a Half Men get nominated […]

the tv bubble

It won’t be until May that we start getting a look at next year’s TV schedules. But this is the time when network executives start getting ideas in their heads about what shows they’re keeping and what shows they’re getting rid of. The CW made some early pick-ups yesterday to make sure fans knew shows like […]

since when did fall finales become standard?

TV is evolving every day. Just a couple years ago, people started to notice that every TV show on the air finished with a cliffhanger. Even sitcoms. It had been a decade-plus since the Simpsons openly made fun of the whole cliffhanger mentality, but that didn’t stop shows from indulging. I blame 24. Its season-ending […]
