Devastating. Happy Endings has bit the dust. Keep those fingers crossed though, Interweb: rumor has it that USA may be scooping the zany sitcom up just like TBS did last year with Cougar Town. I really hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of SinBrad. So even though this sucks royally, there’s still happening Fall TV-related goodness to be celebrating:
Community Has Been Renewed Making Up for the Aforementioned Devastation Lodged In My Gut from Happy Endings Getting Canned
As I’ve already said on Facebook: There is a God.
Losing both HE and Community might’ve been enough to convince me to give up on TV all together. (But maybe that wouldn’t have been such a bad thing.) Either way, it’s joyous, dear readers, to hear that the Greendale Human Beings (and their Dean!) will be back for more timeline-hopping, paintball-fighting insanity. It’s a beautiful thing when a show’s unparalleled creativity and its fans’ loyalty is rewarded.
CBS Picks Up New Robin Williams/Sarah Michelle Gellar Comedy The Crazy Ones
This is clearly one of my most anticipated new shows that made a network’s fall schedule. Sure, having Sarah Michelle Gellar back on TV again is like some National Sports League or whatever announcing that they’re returning from a strike or something. But ladies and gentlemen: Robin Williams on a weekly sitcom. That can only mean good things right? OK, so back to Gellar: She’s proven many times that she can do comedy – her SNL hosting gigs were all well-received! It’ll be great to see what this power-duo can do. Williams plays an unorthodox advertising executive and Gellar stars as his daughter/co-worker. It should be interesting! Oh, and Kelly Clarkson is in the pilot. Win-win-win.
Marvel’s Agents of ‘S.H.I.E.L.D. Finds a Home at ABC
It’s looking like Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is going to be the Next Big Thing on TV. I mean, The Avengers only made 239048239487 billion dollars! If those
incredibly factual numbers translate to ratings, this could be the biggest thing ABC has seen since Lost. The show will follow the non-superhero humans of that universe and will star Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson, whose character was actually killed off in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers. According to Gregg, we won’t find out exactly how or why Coulson is alive…at least not right away.
Adds co-star Chloe Bennet: “If you love The Avengers, if you love any of Joss Whedon’s work, you’re going to absolutely love the show. It’s about these people living in a super world dealing with being human. You see these superhero movies and you see the superheroes struggle but you don’t see how humans do in a world like that.”
A little housekeeping: These posts are getting moved to Thursdays. With summer almost here, I’m bound to get lazier on Fridays, and you’re bound to get busier. Good talk.
