    24

    by cutest_of_borg

    Autistic - producers of 24 have announced they will only air 24 uninterrupted. Unless strike breaks soon don't expect 24 in Spring '08. They certainly will not start a season in March or April unless they double up and show 2 eps per week - which is unlikely.

  • Dec. 31, 2007, 7:54 a.m. CST

    24 is on indefinite hold...

    by Sledge Hammer

    ...until the writers strike is over, as they only had a handful of episodes complete, and didn't want to just show them and then have to break the season for god only knows how long. <p>What I wanna know is when is the final season of The Shield (which has already been completed) due to start airing? <p>Meanwhile things are looking pretty damn slim, with only The Wire, Torchwood, Lost, Prison Break and Jericho on the horizon. I'll probably check out Sarah Conner Chronicles too for a lack of anything better to do. And after that stuff dries up as well it's gonna be a lean damn year if this strike doesn't get sorted...

    by cutest_of_borg

    The Shield

    by chuffsterUK

    Season 7 will premiere on April 1, 2008 and will consist of 13 one hour episodes. This will be the final season according to its creator and the network.[6] The Shield creator, Shawn Ryan, has stated that due to his affiliation with the Writers Guild of America strike, he does not intend to be present on the set of the final episode of the series. He also does not plan to participate in editing the final episode.

  • Dec. 31, 2007, 8:35 a.m. CST

    Instead of Ice Dancing With The Midget All Stars

    by skimn

    Fox should dust off those unaired episodes and rerun Drive. Like it matters at this point. Sarah Conner looks like it could be good, but can they stretch a series on that premise? Any show with Summer Glau gets an extra point in my book. And it looks like she'll put her dancer/gymnastic skills to use.

    "Cashmere Mafia" & "Lipstick Jungle"

    by Mr. Profit

    Can TV Execs please stop trying to continue to make "Sex and the City" happen again? The promos for both shows are so fucking annoying and obvious in their attempt to recreate those old whores from HBO. Seriously if they want to copy "Sex and the City" why don't they relaunch the fucking show with 30 something chicks after that soon to be god awful movie hits the cinemas in 2008? I hear Geller wants back in on the TV game, make her the star.

  • Dec. 31, 2007, 8:39 a.m. CST

    The Shield

    by Mr. Profit

    It's totally fucked that the creator of the show couldn't even do anything with regards to the final episode. I read in EW that the last man behind the scenes standing during the strike was Chiklis (who is also a producer on the show) and he had to finish the series off for the creator. So odd, this strike needs to end. I need the back 8 of Lost to happen in 2008.

This should give people time to watch BBC's MI-5 ... that show HAS BIG BRASS BALLS... it kicks the shit out of 24 with a large peppermint dildo. Seriously, check it out.

  • Dec. 31, 2007, 9:02 a.m. CST

    Its all become so clear....

    by skimn

    ..it finally dawned on me, the whole reason of this writers strike. It is an wide ranging industry effort to block Eli Roth from ever directing the Heroes spinoff episode.

    The Best Thing about According to Jim

    by kevinwillis.net

    Courtney-Thorne Smith's nipples. She's apparently not allowed to wear a bra, and no doubt that accounts for at least half the viewership.

  • Dec. 31, 2007, 9:40 a.m. CST

    What a piss poor line up

    by photoboy

    Aside from Lost (which shouldn't be coming back with so few episodes) there's only Terminator, Prison Break and Jericho to look forward to. I hope the fucking suits are happy, by not giving the writers a decent deal we've now got fuck all to watch until next winter.

  • Dec. 31, 2007, 9:43 a.m. CST

    Oh, and that Shield news...

    by Sledge Hammer

    ...royally sucks ass (thanks for sharing the information though, horrible as it is to hear). Hopefully everything will be sorted before the eps air and there will be ample time for Ryan to give the show any tweaking it may need. Oh, and thanks for the update on when the final season is due to air, much appreciated.

  • Dec. 31, 2007, 9:44 a.m. CST

    DAMN!

    by Series7

    I was hopeing Gergory Lopez'z voice had been heard. And the studios realized that ending his show was a raciest thing and not a mercy kill and would bring it back! God between him and Carlos Mencia its no wonder hispanics don't get any respect. Hopefully people will realize that people of spainish decent aren't as funny as cheech made them out to be and that they do drama malto bene.

  • Dec. 31, 2007, 10:02 a.m. CST

    by jim

    January 13 (and no, I don't mean because that's the start date of "Scott Baio is 46 and Has Been a Has-Been For 25 years"). Hopefully Sarah Conner Chronicles will be good.<p>Too bad I don't get HBO, I could enjoy the best show on TV as early as January 6th.<p>We all know Lost has only 8 episodes to air. Anyone know if ABC still plans to air them consecutively, or will they be giving us "off" weeks to try and stretch out the run of new epsiodes?<p>Jericho returns February 12! Happy Birthday to me!<p>Hey, New Amsterdam is finally going to air. I wonder if it weren't for the strike would this show have made it on the schedule? I don't know if it's good or not, all I know is Fox was hyping the ever-living crap out of it in the Spring but when the Fall came it was nowhere to be found.<p>Thanks BillyPilgrim, I know have that Silver Shamrock tune stuck in my head.

  • Dec. 31, 2007, 10:40 a.m. CST

    I love watching According to Jim

    by jim

    It is the most spot-on perfect parody I have ever seen. The way they skewer the Family Sitcom genre with such straight faces is unbelievable. They leave no sacred cow unslaughtered. They have the fat slob married to the hot wife, the dull-witted best friend, the sassy sister-in-law, and the precocious kids. It's pure genius how every episode is basically the same yet dressed up to seem different. And the cherry on top is the most obvious and grating laugh-track ever. I am suprised that such a well thought-out show that is so meticulously structured down to the smallest detail has survived on TV for so long. Kudos to ABC for sticking with such a wickedly accurate send-up of crappy family sitcoms.

  • Dec. 31, 2007, 11:05 a.m. CST

    According to Jim is on because they

    by Itchy

    can produce it without writers. As far as I can tell, the actors just come out and shit all over the screen and then the episode is over. That being said, I'd pay money to watch Kimberly Williams Paisley shit on Courtney Thorne Smith's erect nipples. Mmmm.

    Just saw The Sarah Connor Chronicles...

    by Prometeo

    ...on my Torrent channel. Dunno where those guys get hold to this kind of stuff, but it says it's a "Revised Final Sales Master", dated 4/23/07 and with french subtitles. Anyway (spoilers alert), about the show. It has a naked Summer Glau, a new better acting terminator (model unknown). That's a big plus in my list, a Sarah Connor that doesn't look at all like Hammilton's one, hunted by an unschwarzenegger iteration of a T-101, a federal agent, a dumped ex-boyfriend, nad your typical drinking beer buddies that are set to give them "boots, clothes and motorcycle". We even get shown the "other side" of a time traveling machine, this time towards the future, some future weapons too (built in the 60's), and bare ass runners; but I'm sort of wondering how they'll keep the whole "running away" story interesting, without being repetitive. And by the way, Happy New Year to everyone!

    The Death of TV

    by DirkAngerReloaded23

    Well, it's official, this winter's TV schedule S U C K S !!! Take away Lost, Jericho (cause I at least wanna know how it ends), The Sarah Connors Chronicles (sheer curiosity there), & um............yeah that's pretty much it. Jack Fucking Balls is the name of the game for winter TV. My God, I know that this is an empty plea because of the money they make & the lack of writers that they need to pay, but at some time in the future could you please see it in your heart to ELIMINATE EVERY REALITY SHOW ON TV WITH EXTREME PREJUDICE. ENOUGH ALREADY WITH THIS BRAIN DEAD BULLSHIT THAT EXECS ARE PASSING OFF AS ENTERTAINMENT.

    looking forward to the series. on a totally unrelated note, i just watched the Six Feet Under series finale, and i'm not ashamed to admit i cried like a bitch at the end and therefore i'm feeling a little emo right now. so... yeah

    I scooped Herc re: BSG season 3 release date!

    by Pennsy

    By more than 4 1/2 hours! ;) <p> At least it's not season 3.0 and 3.5 bullshit.

    At least Torchwood's season is complete

    by performingmonkey

    Unlike many of the other shows that haven't been able to finish their episode quota due to the strike. Stuff like Sarah Connor won't finish till fall or whenever the strike ends and they can write more. Lost will end prematurely and only fuck knows when the second half of the already shortened season will air.

  • Jan. 1, 2008, 2:39 a.m. CST

    That's because Torchwood is british...

    by Sledge Hammer

    ...the whole WGA debacle only affects American created/funded/produced shows, you know, because it's the Writers Guild of AMERICA. Funnily enough, the entire world's tv production doesn't stop just because the US portion of the industry has shut down.

    Galactica S3 has been out on DVD in PAL for ages

    by Paulseta

    For Frack's sake, why the hell wouldn't you order it from another country like people outside the US have been forced to do with so many other series? I mean, it's not like PAL is inferior to NTSC (otherwise known as "what the bloody hell is that blurry mess" to people from overseas visiting the States and seeing your TV for the first time...

  • Jan. 1, 2008, 6:20 a.m. CST

    maybe someone will get smart

    by mcavity

    and start grabing some british and canadian shows to put on the air. I saw Jekyll and that was good, and theres a a couple of others whos names I cant think of off the top of my head.

    The Shield

    by Stalkeye

    Can't wait to see the last season, and hopefully (obviously) that prick Shane will get his. of course they'll be some redemption theme involved as Shane tries to make up for killing Lem and Vic finally goes off to prison for all the corrupt shit he's done (including the murder of undercover officer Terry.)or gets killed off too. Maybe Ryan will produce a spinoff series involving Dutch Wagenbaugh and Claudette Wymms. Just a thought.

    Hooray for lost!

    by red_weed

    I been doin them flyoceanicair.com things. what fun. pity we only get half a season. Sarah Conner chronicles was pretty good i though, but i guess it all depends how they develop it fomr there. but it's cool to see tv going for bigger and better action. Just hope they get characters and story right. I live in australia so i have season 3 of battlestar galactica already and it is frakkin awesome.

    Ughh... end the writer's strike, please!!

    by 24200124

    Look at the influx of all this crap "reality" programming. I can't stand it!! Please, please, please, help the writers to come back and do their jobs. There's no "24", no "Pushing Daisies", no "How I Met Your Mother", and "Bones", "Heroes", "Reaper" and "Prison Break" are going to run out of episodes soon. Yes, that may seem like a shit list of TV to watch, but IT'S NOT REALITY PROGRAMMING. Actual THOUGHT had to be put into these shows, and I appreciate the process. Bring back the writers, for fuck's sake.

  • Jan. 1, 2008, 12:22 p.m. CST

    what about HOUSE?

    by GavinVanDraven

    that starts back up this month right? hey Herc, why no DEXTER talkback? ever? you need to give this show a chance... and we need a talkback for next season.

    "How to look good naked"

    ... Did Harry have a New Years party and get the entire fucking staff drunk, sick and hungover on high-fat eggnog spiked with grain alcohol and barrels full of homemade Chex Party Mix? Right now they're all gathered around the only toilet in Harry's flat doing a "circle hurl."

    British Shows

    by DiernaSoul

    Robin Hood Series 2 ended last week in the UK so it should be airing on BBC America within the next couple months. Im hoping that due to what happened in the finale they'll finally have Friar Tuck in Season/Series 3! New seasons/series of Torchwood and Doctor Who are premiering soon (thank the gods...otherwise I wouldn't have anything to watch except American Idol and Stargate Atlantis). So is a new season of another British show I love called Primeval. I saw the Sarah Conner Chronicles pilot back in September and loved it. So I'll at least have one new show to watch. :P Battlestar Galactica's new season starts in March, not April. All the promos on sci-fi channel have been saying March.

    Any word on when new Batman-comma-The eps return?

  • Jan. 1, 2008, 9:44 p.m. CST

    pretty good line up

    by waggy

    i saw that The Wire is back. that's all that matters.

  • Jan. 1, 2008, 9:55 p.m. CST

    Okay, "The Shield," that's one.

    by kabong

    "Terminator" thing sounds promising, especially the part about naked Summer Glau. <p> But where are all the good shows? (That's just a rhetorical question.) <p> And captboulder is right. There's something rigged about those Vancouver series that get picked up even when they flop. "Andromeda" got five seasons--probably because it was so believable. ;)

  • Jan. 2, 2008, 12:34 a.m. CST

    The commercials have been utter shit...

    by poeticwarriorII

    for that garbage that is the TINO tv series. My only question now is whether it will be as good or worse than Flash Gordon. That whole I've got shotgun... I've got 9mm made me puke in my mouth a little. If people want to get paid for shitting out pig vomit such as this then they can feel free to go fuck themselves.

    Message to writers of LOST

    by oweny

    You created the best drama ever made. I loved you for making it, but now, I hate you for taking it away. Please pick up your pencils again. We NEED Lost back in its full glory. I dont care about any of the other shows. Just LOST.

  • Jan. 2, 2008, 6:43 a.m. CST

    How appropriate...

    by haggardatbest

    To have such a long list of garbage television followed by a photo of Larry Sanders with his head in his hand.

    LOST, Wire, Shield, Prison Break, Sarah Conner, Atlantis, Reno91

    by turketron

    LOST, The Wire, The Shield, Prison Break, Sarah Conner Chronicles, Stargate Atlantis, Reno 911, and Battlestar Galactica are the only shows I'm interested in this coming year. This should be enough to keep me satisfied, except for the truncated season of LOST. I'm hoping the strike ends soon and we can get the other 8 episodes in the fall, followed by 16 eps in spring 09.

    Naked Summer Glau, will never make the network

    by CrichtonAstronut

    version. Damn American censores. We'll have to wait for the DVD release. If only this were on Showtime or HBO. The Sarah Conner chrnicles looks damned cool though. And Summer Glau kickin Cyborg ass with her Cyborg powers. Fuckin awesome.

    What the hell's Paradise Hotel?

    by CrichtonAstronut

    Sounds like a crappy American version of Hotel Babylon. Do American TV execs not realize we can undertstand Brit English. Looks like I'll be watching the Terminator series, Atlantis and a whole lot of BBCA.
