Late April, “The CW” announced it’s renewals for the next season of Fall 2011 – 2012 and within the announcement came the renewals of fan favorite shows; “The Vampire Diaries,” “Gossip Girl,” “Supernatural,” “90210,” and “America’s Next Top Model”.
No word has been given yet in regards to the freshman series “Hellcats,” and “Nikita”; nor any information about “One Tree Hill.”
“The Vampire Diaries”, this author’s ultimate favorite show is now the most-watched show on the network, and thankfully that gives it a chance to return for a third season of blood-sucking vampires, werewolfs, witches, and so much more in our beloved Mystic Falls. It also means more Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena Gilbert/Katerina Petrova (Nina Dobrev) so hurray for the renewal.
“Gossip Girl” and “90210” also remain some of the popular series on the network being aimed at the younger demographics therefore the renewal in this case came as no surprise. “Supernatural” will see its 7th Season in the fall, as will “America’s Next Top Model” who will see it’s 17th season.
To the shows that were renewed, yaaay! And to those who weren’t we wish them the best of luck in the axed yard.
So in the past few weeks lots of things were happening in the TV World some of which we’d like to report are as follows:
- Charlie Sheen has been fired from “Two and a Half Men”, he had one season left on his contract for the show however due to the recent situation between Sheen and Chuck Lorre the producer of the show, CBS and Warner Bros have decided to fire him. It is no surprise given how Sheen is going on the social media sites and claiming he’s a “Winner” and has “Tiger Blood” and is living with porn stars also known as his “goddesses” things don’t seem to be going well for Mr. Sheen.

- “How I Met Your Mother” a CBS sitcom about how a guy met his wife has been renewed for two more seasons, this is amazing news as we all would love to know how Ted met his wife however this could also mean that we’ll have 2 years to sit around and wonder who the mother is, but overall it’s great news I can’t wait to see more Barney!

- We’ve got some cool random news here about “The Vampire Diaries” actress Arielle Kibbel joining a new ABC show called “Hallelujah” as well as some news about Natalie Dormer (aka Anne Boelyn from “The Tudors”) who will be starring in a series called “Poe” in which she will play Celeste, a woman with a “firm moral center” [Link]
More news will be coming your way with some updates soon.
We here at TV@Couchavenue would like to extend our warmest wishes to our favorite resident vampire bad boy Ian Somerhalder on his 32nd birthday! Without his sexy hotness we wouldn’t be drooling over vampires now every Thursday would we?
His only wish this year is that we all come together and raise funds to support projects that protect our planet and nurture our furry friends. The best gift would be to give a donation to the Ian Somerhalder Foundation so we could all make a change together.
Our resident hottie and sexy bad boy “The Vampire Diaries” hunk Ian Somerhalder has been named “Supernaturally Spectacular” in People’s 2010 Sexiest Man Issue (with Ryan Reynolds on the cover).
Ian says in his interview “Human beings love things that are sexy but scary, [I feel sexiest] first thing in the morning, when I’m most relaxed. I have three animals in the bed, and there’s fur everywhere in the sheets. It would be a little weird for me to say that I feel sexy with all my kitties. I would be ‘that guy.’”
