They are a Mormon owned station that has a habit of refusing to air ‘controversial’ show, (New Normal, The Playboy Club’). But I am over the endless TV shows at the moment that just REVEL in cruelty. Gave up on ‘The Following’ and ‘Hannibal’ after one episode. Just do not need that shit in my life. Am loving ‘Bates Motel’ though, as it is based in character. ‘Top of the Lake’, of course, with its badly written characters and rape obsession has been the worst TV show in years. So, less cruelty just for the sake of it please.
Utah’s Salt Lake City station KSL TV posted on their Facebook page that it will no longer air the ratings-challenged freshman drama. “After viewing the past few episodes, as well as receiving numerous complaints from viewers, KSL TV will cancel the airing of the NBC show Hannibal on Thursday evenings,” the station posted. “This decision was made due to the extensive graphic nature of this show. The time slot will be replaced with a special edition of KSL 5 News at 9 p.m. NBC remains a valued partner to KSL TV. KSL is confident that with the proliferation of digital media, those who wish to view the program can easily do so.”
Sources say Hannibal will find a way into the market via the local CW affiliate. “We’re going across the street, as they say,” a source said.
It is finally getting good. Well, no more fantasy song numbers.
It looks like Smash will go a little less gently into that good night.
In an effort to give the musical drama a more high-profile sendoff, NBC is giving the show a reprieve from its Saturday time slot and has scheduled its two-hour series finale for Sunday, May 26 (9/8c).
There’ll certainly be plenty of action packed into the installment — titled “The Tonys” — according to showrunner Josh Safran. “Someone is pregnant! Someone is arrested! There is a kiss between a gay man and straight man — who kisses back!” he teased while spilling spoilers for TVLine’s “May Sweeps/Season Finale Scoopapalooza.
Are they totally fucking crazy? Just because the show has sexually active drug taking bozze hags as lead characters they pull it? Just because the show refuses to have moral filled end scenes they pull it? Just because the neighbour has interesting sexual needs that the show makes part of the plots they pull it? WORST TV DECISION EVER. The show kicks ass. Very very very very angry and I think we should send panties to ABC to protest.
That B—- in Apartment 23 (as well as her gal pal June) will be homeless for the forseeable future, now that ABC has quietly pulled the sophomore comedy from its schedule.
ABC has continually shuffled its Tuesday comedies ‘Happy Endings‘ and ‘Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23,’ recently slotting them in to replace ‘666 Park Avenue‘ on Sundays, but abandoning the experiment after a single airing due to low ratings. Now, it seems that new schedule adjustments might have pushed most of the remaining ‘Happy Endings’ episodes to February, leaving little to no room for the remainder of ‘Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23.’ Will the shelved episodes lead to the series’ cancellation? What about the chances for ‘Happy Endings’?
Well, not really surprised. Hard to recover fro losing your leading man. And there is little story left to tell, apart from the deaths.
In a surprising move, Starz is pulling the plug on Spartacus after the upcoming third season.
The final chapter, to be titled Spartacus: War of the Damned, will air in January 2013.
“Starz always does the unexpected,” Sparty’s creator, Steven S. DeKnight, told IGN. “This show has been challenged, to say the least, in many, many ways. We’ve faced many difficulties and tragedies on the show. My original plan was to attack the show in a five- to seven-season arc. Once we got into it and after Andy [Whitfield]’s passing and looking at the historical story of Spartacus, we came to the decision to basically end on a high note.
“We certainly could have continued for a few more seasons and stretched it out, but we really wanted to end high and not feel like we were treading water – and really just condense the rest of the history into one amazing ten-episode, badass final season,” he continued. “You know, the whole show was a huge risk from the start for Starz, and it was another huge risk when I decided to try to keep the show going after Andy’s passing. Any normal studio would have just cancelled the show at that point and not risk the financial downside of it not working. But Starz, thankfully, really stuck by the show, and they really wanted it to be told all the way to the end. They didn’t want to cheat the viewers and just suddenly pull the plug. So they gave us this opportunity to wrap up the story, and we’re certainly taking that opportunity and running with it. This is by far the biggest season we’ve ever attempted.”
War of the Damned will center on the final battle between Spartacus and Marcus Crassus. “It is very much Crassus along with the aid of Caesar going after Spartacus,” DeKnight previously told TVLine. “The scope of it multiplies many times as Crassus battles Spartacus across the country.”
He just tweeted the news………
Guilded Lilys is a no. ABC not picking it up. disappointed but very proud of the work we did. Jb
Was from Shondra Rhimes so may have been crap. It sounded like an attempt at an American ‘Downton Abbey’.
The story revolves around the Lily family, who open a luxurious New York hotel, and the people who work there. Bolger’s character Violet is set to marry Charlie (Lauria) but she instead falls in love with a poor ship’s servant whose personality apparently makes up for his empty wallet. Charlie is also in business with Violet’s father, to be played by Brian F. O’Byrne, so it would seem a decision to break the engagement might have dire consequences. It sounds like high drama all around, all with a period setting that seems aimed at the Downton Abbey audience, right down to including the servants in the plot.
