Ain't It Cool News (

Monday Is SWEEPS DAY 12!!
New REVOLUTION, LENS, CASTLE, FIVE-0, BONES, BROKE, HOW, MOLLY, VOICE, GOSSIP, 90210, WWE And DANCING!! Nate Silver On COLBERT!! Oliver Stone On TAVIS!! Sarah Silverman On CONAN!! More!!

Last week on “Revolution,” a drug lord, apparently having never seen “The Deer Hunter,” gave his enemies two guns full of what we’re assured are super-valuable bullets.

The Monroe Republic is *massive*. How does it not have something as important as a bullet factory up and running somewhere? Bullets were around before electricity, right?

NBC says of “The Children’s Crusade”:

When Charlie (Tracy Spiridakos) meets a boy who's suffered a plight similar to her own, she relates and longs to help him and his young friends. First, she must convince Miles (Billy Burke). Meanwhile, Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) grows weary of General Monroe (David Lyons) as she meets someone from her past.

If tonight’s CBS and CW shows seem to bear strangely Halloweenish themes, it’s because they were bumped from last Monday by Storm Sandy.

Premiering tonight:

American Pickers (9pm History)

Caught Red Handed (10pm Tru)

Dangerous Grounds (10pm Travel)

Jesse James: Outlaw Garage (10pm Discovery)

Love Games (11pm Oxygen)

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
(9pm Bravo)

Start-Ups (10pm Bravo)

Witness (9pm HBO)

    Looks like football tonight.

    I don't usually watch any shows on Monday. Anybody have a recommendation?

    revolution questions

    by katchoo67

    What I want to know is, how, after 15 years, they all have nice clothes that actually fit - boots that don't look worn down to the nubs - and they each seem to have a compound crossbow?

    Have kind of forgot about Conan

    by Bass Ackwards

    I'm sure its still a decent talkshow, but the guy has kind of disappeared from the pop-culture radar. I still see skits and interviews from Stewart and Colbert, Fallon, Kimmel, even Letterman that bleed out into the social networks, or being "viral," I can't think of the last time I saw anything from Conan that made an impact though.

    Just wanted to wish everyone a happy Internet-Goes-To-Shit Eve

    by Uncle Pooky

    Can't wait to watch this and other sites go down in flames from all of the rational and intelligent political discourse!

  • Nov. 5, 2012, 4:26 p.m. CST


    by Truxton Spangler

    I felt kinda cheated after they suggested that Charlie would get pimped out last week, only to have that lame story with her trying to kill the prison guard from Justified. At least there was sideboob. But, it's a junk food show, so you don't expect it to do much other than make you full, or kill some time. I don't feel sorry if I miss Castle, but tonight's, taking place at a con, directed by Jonathan Frakes, should have a lot of in-jokes.

    Conan is out of sight and out of mind.

    by cerberus

    He really should have taken the offer NBC made. If Conan was so pissed about NBC screwing with the Tonight Show's timeslot he should have had timeslot protection written into his contract. Conan's people really let him down. The second he found out that he didn't have something as basic as timeslot protection in his contract he should have fired his entire team right then and there. So not only did Conan make a bonehead mistake like that he went and made it worse by jumping to TBS. Conan's audience loved him but they didn't love him that much. If he had his heart set on going to cable he could have stayed at one of the stations NBC owned. NBC owns USA network. Conan would have been a great fit at USA. I also find it funny that he is pissed at Jay, especially when he was the one gunning for The Tonight Show and threatening to jump ship. He wanted The Tonight Show in the worst possible way and he got The Tonight Show in the worst possible way. No one is cuckoo for Coco anymore. He is just another cautionary tale.

    Conan's collateral damage

    by paulloch

    aka The George Lopez show. It got better ratings in the same time slot before Conan. After Conan -- moved to 12, suffered from the poor lead-in, and now a cancelled memory. The TBS gamble has hurt more than Conan's legacy.

  • Nov. 5, 2012, 6:08 p.m. CST

    Exactly Paulloch!

    by cerberus

    This whole thing was a giant clusterfuck from the word go. Each person was hurt by their one glaring personality flaw. Conan's sense of entitlement. Conan should have just accepted the fact that he would only get The Tonight Show when Jay retired or just left NBC. NBC's fear of a Letterman/Leno fiasco NBC should have told Conan that The Tongiht Show wasn't on the table and let him walk. Once David Letterman walks out on you letting someone of Conan's talent level leave should be easy. Jay Leno's need to please everyone. Jay should have pointed at his ratings and told NBC to go fuck themselves when they asked him to step down.

    I hate Revolution. Absolutely despise it. Such a stupid show.

    by happybunni

    I don't know what the hell happened to Eric Kripke's writing. He does fine on Supernatural, but he's absolutely HORRIBLE on Revolution. Every character is just extremely stupid, annoying, and has random out-of-character emotional breakdowns every episode. Good premise, terrible terrible terrible show!

  • the overtalker BOR- 3.9 (million) the *Rhodes Scholar* indoctrinated maddow- 1.5 (million) the ever important 25-54 demo... the overtalker BOR- 723 (thousand) the *Rhodes Scholar* indoctrinated maddow- 498 (thousand) ouch!

    No Reservations ends tonight

    Great show, just thought I would toss it out here.

    2-sent. review of tonight's Revolution

    by jdl82

    In this excuse for an original narrative, the protagonists encounter and come to the aid of a bunch of wild, naive, armed orphans whose leader, a green-clad boy named Peter, has been kidnapped by malicious adults and taken aboard their water-born prison fortress. Can Wend, er... Katn, er... whoever the girl's name is, rescue the boy in time?

    Is just bad and not in an entertaing way.

  • with the mourgue guy helping them to solve the pextagram mystery with his new Windows 8 flip computer/tablet. Not that I have anything wrong with that sort of thing, it was just very blantant.

    Given up on revolution

    by rakesh patel

    what was the big reveal promised in the promos? there is no mystery, there is no reveal. dickhead scientist find a way to suppress energy(!) bad guys turn it on. why would i want to watch seven seasons of this? It's not post apocalyptic walking dead. It's not people trying to survive like jericho. what is this supposed to be star fucking wars? i'm guess the death star is the generator thats suppressing the energy somewhere in the mid west. I've come to the realisation that i do not empathise with any of the characters, in fact its safe to say i probably hate some of them. why the fuck is juliet from lost and crazy v mom been there for years. for a couple of years she was there and said fuck all. the slowest interrogation in the world surely Monroe posturing around like a blind villain, someone give the guy from the cape a white cat. i liked him in the cape, in this he's shit. Now we got intro for new bad guy. who gives a shit about him? i completely forgot about captured black woman as well. Does anyone give a monkeys about the brother? Everyones trying to save him, but as a view i dont give a shit. It took about 5 episodes before i dumped alcatraz, i've given this 7. you cant script a prime time show without a fucking roadmap, and looking at the quality of the episodes they didn't give a fuck. Apparently the screwy way that rating work, this is ok for a while, unless it keeps on hemorrhaging viewers. you might get a season ( after a four month hiatus!) I gave it a chance i really did, but this episodes orphan kids just drove me over the edge. Good Luck revolution fans, i wish you well. if it somehow swings and makes a decent second season i'll be happy to take a second gander ( i did it with supernatural!)

    Mr_X_, does this mean no more Pop Quizzes?

    by jim

    I have one: You have inadvertently invented a machine that suppresses the flow of electricity. Do you: a) Try to figure out where you went wrong with your Green Energy machine and continue down that path? b) Try to sell it to the Gov't even though you suspect they MIGHT use it as a weapon (I'm stumped, what other purpose could it possibly have)? c) Before handing it over to the DoD, figure out a way to turn off said machine in case something goes wrong? d) Have all this information about what happened, why, and how to fix it, yet do nothing about it for 15 years until the evil leader comes looking for you?

  • Nov. 6, 2012, 11:27 a.m. CST

    @ big jim

    by rakesh patel

    it does i'm afraid. You're more then welcome to use the phrase in your heading, but i must insist that its called "Mr X's Pop Quiz" it's purely a copyright thing. i'm sure you understand.

  • Nov. 6, 2012, 12:08 p.m. CST

    @ mr_x_

    by jim

    Fair enough. Or I could call it "Extra Credit with Big Jim".

  • Nov. 6, 2012, 12:26 p.m. CST

    @big jim i'm willing to negoiate because of franchise opportunities

    by rakesh patel

    Mr X's Pop Quiz, hosted by Big Jim

  • Wearing that Mr X's Pop Quiz uniform, dealing with other franchisees over territorial rights (both exclusive and inclusive), getting a laptop in the proper shade of chartreuse, etc. Besides, I'm not confident I can maintain the quality standards of the original product.

  • Nov. 6, 2012, 4:35 p.m. CST

    @big jim very well we'll call this a spin off

    by rakesh patel

    I hope you understand i'm feeling very precious with my brand name. Many an AICN whippersnapper have started utilizing the "mr" or "mister" moniker diluting my unique selling point. "Xtra Credit with Big Jim" allows you to branch off in your own direction yet the prominent "X" branding still ensures the quality standard of the product. I will of course take my 10% cut and call you a studio plant when you disagree with me.

  • Nov. 6, 2012, 8:47 p.m. CST

    so it appears my hunch was correct

    by Truxton Spangler

    The whole "no electricity" thing would turn out to be anticlimactic. But, it's about the characters! Too bad. If so, they'd better get moving and make them more compelling. But then, the upcoming hiatus may do the job and finish off the show without any intervention from the writers.
