She was really just making sure Molly died in time for Ghostbusters this Summer…
Now that we're living in a world where premiere television mostly exists on cable channels and streaming services, the Big Five networks are being forced to make their toughest programming decisions ever.
Not only does that explain last week's must-see massacre that gave us at least thirteen TV casualties, but it also helps justify why former hits like Mike & Molly and Castle said goodbye with their series finales on Monday night!
The CBS sitcom and ABC buddy cop drama bowed out at six and eight seasons a piece, and stars like Melissa McCarthy, Nathan Fillion, and Stana Katic were quick to thanks fans on Twitter after their episodes aired!
Ch-ch-check out the Mike & Molly and Castle casts' final farewells (below)!!!
May is always a rough time of year for television lovers…
Since most TV shows usually finish up their seasons in the Spring, it's always interesting to see which series get to live on to the Fall, and which will never be heard of again.
Unfortunately for fans, 13 shows failed to make the cut on Thursday as ABC, FOX, CBS, and The CW each cancelled at least one of their programs!
As you probably already saw, hit series Nashville and Castle were both discarded by the House of Mouse amidst behind-the-scenes drama, while Supergirl barely survived thanks to a move to a new channel.
So… which shows won't be making it to the 2016-2017 season??
This is very inneresting!
Both Nashville and Castle have built loyal followings in their time over at ABC, but with questions about their respective futures looming large, it seems like only now we're getting more insight into what's up with these two shows!
Speaking at the 2016 Winter TCA Press Tour, ABC prez Paul Lee gave his thoughts on the two show, including being very blunt about whether it was time to wrap up Nashville:
New Muppets TV Show Promos Star Kerry Washington's Face & Nathan Fillion's Butt! Watch All The Crazy Cameos HERE!
Oh Miss Piggy!
Who doesn't love the muppets?!
That's why we couldn't be more excited about the new show they have on ABC this fall, appropriately titled, The Muppets!
The show will be in a similar format to shows like The Office, and that promises a more mature version of The Muppets!
In a new slew of star-studded ads for the upcoming sitcom, Nathan Fillion swings by to distract Miss Piggy with his butt, Kerry Washington takes a selfie with Kermit, and Patricia Heaton — like everyone else — can't make sense of the Swedish Chef!
Ch-ch-check out all the HIGHlarious ads (below) and make sure you check out the show premiering Tuesday Sept. 22 on ABC!
Joss Whedon fans, unite — because the trailer for Con Man dropped, in all its meta glory!
This crowdfunded comedy webseries stars Firefly alum Alan Tudyk as Wray Nerely, former star of massively popular canceled sci-fi series Spectrum.
The show within the show was prematurely cancelled and has become a cult classic, generating a HUGE fanbase (hmmm, sound familiar?)
While Wray's friend and old co-star Jack Moore (Nathan Fillion) saw movie star success after the show ended, Wray is merely trying to become more than just a figure at conventions and comic book stores living off of his past fame!
The show plans to feature many cameos from the Whedonverse, including Amy Acker, Sean Mager, Felicia Day, Seth Green, Summer Glau, Sean Astin, James Gunn, and of course Joss himself!
Check out the trailer (above) and go rent Con Man on Vimeo on September 30!

OK, so Firefly is probably never coming back. Sorry, Browncoats, but that ship has sailed.
BUT you can have the next best thing!
In order to get Con Man off the ground, they've set up an Indiegogo page! And they need your help! Alan says:
"This would be the quickest way to see us back on a spaceship. That's the truth. It's not going to be the Serenity. But it is a really cool spaceship!"

Nathan Fillion's status as a nerd icon is now official!
The Castle star is guest-starring in an upcoming episode of The Big Bang Theory as the most exciting character possible: himself!
