[TV] The Fate of Fall TV Shows 2013 – 2014

May 12, 2014  |  Fall TV 2013, Mid-Season 2014, TV

And now that the cable networks have finalized the list of their shows that are either being renewed or cancelled, it has come my time to share that bit of information with you.  This time however, I will follow my usual format of posting the results in an image format.  There were in total 94 scripted shows that aired on the ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, and NBC Networks and of those shows only 55 were renewed while the remaining 39 were given the ax.  This basically means that 58.51% of TV Shows were renewed while a shockingly 41.49% were cancelled, pretty much half of the shows aired were either cancelled or ended (i.e. #HowIMetYourMother and #Nikita).  So what are their fates, let’s get started!

Who got renewed?  Well for starters, some shows were given a renewal for a final season meaning that by next year they will be dunzo, gone off the air.  NBC has given #Parenthood a sixth and final season of 13 episodes which will allow the show to go out on 100 episodes, while #ParksAndRecreation was given a seventh and final season as well.

[TV] Colin Hanks Talks Having the Best Scene of the “Fargo” Premiere

May 8, 2014  |  Guest Writers, Mid-Season 2014, TV

Because I am a TV junkie I love sharing any article that comes my way in regards to any new show out there. I was recently referred to the below article written by Diana Price for CableTV and thought what better way to enlighten my readers than to give you a sweet little glimpse and point you right back to the original source.

Colin Hanks has carved out his own distinguished acting career in the shadow of his father, Tom, and his latest role is in the critically-acclaimed FX series “Fargo.” As Gus Grimly, Hanks plays a meek police officer who, in a pivotal scene of the premier, lets bad guy Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) get away after he pulls him over for routine traffic stop. And we aren’t talking a mere oversight here; Malvo tells him point blank he’s a bad guy and it’s in his best interest to just let him go for his and his daughter’s sake, and Gus does.

We joined Hanks on a media call to discuss the complexities of his flawed but well-meaning character, and in particular, getting that scene right.

The Art of Missing Out on Sleep

May 8, 2014  |  Random

Now that I have completed a week’s worth of work I find that I miss my sleeping hours. Back when I was unemployed last week I used to sleep in the wee hours of the morning (around 3-5 AM) and wake up around noon or even between 1-2 PM. Basically my job back when I was out of a job was to just sleep during the work day and then spend the afternoons and evenings doing whatever I wanted.

Now that I’ve had to sleep earlier (I still sleep by 2AM at the latest) and wake up earlier (6 AM) I find myself missing those 8 hours a night of sleep. I get a minimum of 4 hours to 6 hours if I am a good girl. I need to figure out a way to shut down my brain the minute I get in bed, but unfortunately that hasn’t been the case in a long time. I can go to bed at midnight but I will spend an hour or two tossing and turning until I fall asleep at around 2AM even if I am exhausted. I have joked with friends that 3 years later I am still experiencing jet lag from my USA trips but in a way it’s not that funny.

I think that this weekend I will work on catching up with the sleep I missed out and starting next week fix that wonky schedule.

In short, do I think the sacrifice of my sleep is worth it for this job? Not really but then again I can never justify a worthy sacrificial endeavour for my sleep :P Don’t you have similar thoughts.

May 5, 2014  |  TV

I was sitting here preparing the list of “TV Renewals & Cancellations” and realized that the list showcasing the premiere dates was just getting too long, so I decided to chop them up into two posts.  Without further ado, I give you a condensed list of what shows will be premiering this summer.

[TV Shows] Renewals & Cancellations of Mar&Apr2014

May 4, 2014  |  Fall TV 2013, Mid-Season 2014, TV

March and April have both ended by now and many shows were given the green light or red light respectively.  I am here to share with you the latest news and what shows you should keep on watching and what shows are about to leave your little screens!

First up in the renewals is the CBS comedy series THE MILLERS starring the hilarious Will Arnett as Nathan Miller, a recently divorced guy who finds out his parents are getting a divorce simply because he took the first step.  The series starts off with the news of his parents divorce Carol (Margo Martindale) and Tom (Beau Bridges) and how each parent decides to move in with each of the siblings.  Carol (the mom) moves in with Nathan, whereas Tom (the dad) moves in with their daughter Debbie (Jayma Mays).  The series is mostly fun and easy to watch and the talents of both Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges make it hilariously funny.  I am personally happy with this renewal!
