News Stories For Today

March 14, 2008

  • Jericho canceled… again.  Honestly, they got seven more episodes than they should have had, and managed to convince legions of fans that sending tons of [insert item of choice that is significant to the show in question] to a television network will guarantee a pickup for another season, that’s more than most cancellations can claim.  Expect to see shows where the main character has a fondness for caviar, cigars, and expensive limited-edition, signed baseball memorabilia in the 2008-2009 season.
  • Christian Slater to star in NBC drama.  I.. don’t get it.  Jekyll and Hyde meets The Bourne Identity?  Also… Christian Slater?  Ben Silverman, there are so many things I could say to you right now.  But go ahead and give season pickups to shows without a pilot, go right ahead.  The fact that this show isn’t an adaptation of previously existing material (despite the aforementioned Jekyll and Hyde meets The Bourne Identity) is more than you can say for the rest of your development slate.  And good luck with Robinson Crusoe!
  • Britney has apparently wrapped on HIMYM.  You know, I can’t say anything bad.  If it gets more people to watch the show (including at least 20,000 more in the Boston area, according to the Nielsen ratings) then kudos to Brit.  Although the cast should really stop using the word ‘great’ to describe her… sounds a little forced, guys.
  • Lost was ridiculous last night.  I’M JUST SAYING. 

In other news, Does It Offend You, Yeah? performs at SXSW tonight.  After some drama with American Airlines losing their sampler, it’s nice to know that they’ll be able to perform after all.  And with Los Campesinos! performing today (apparently comparisons overheard include: “a happier Cursive!” and “a less precious Mates of State!” and “Arcade Fire, but not famous yet!”), it’s enough to make me wish I lived in Texas.  Or was at least visiting for the week.  I’m off to listen to Epic Last Song for the 61st time (2:38 in is especially awesome).
