The Borgias Renewed For A Second Season!

Filed under: TV News

Well that didn't take long at all, did it?!

Showtime's latest series, The Borgias, which stars Jeremy Irons as the nasty-ass honeybadger patriarch of the historical Borgia family, debuted earlier this month, but has reportedly already been renewed for a second season!

Apparently, the show has already delivered the best ratings for a new drama from the network in SEVEN YEARS, and in its premiere week alone, garnered over 3.71 million views!

According to network President David Nevins:

"The Borgias has become Sunday night appointment viewing for a broad swath of our subscribers. Neil Jordan's cleverly crafted tale of a 15th century papal family has proven quickly addictive. It's a tribute to his incredible skills as an auteur and to the extraordinary cast led by Jeremy Irons that this show fits so seamlessly into our line-up of quality shows."

Damn! We're going to have to check this one out!

Congratulations to the cast and crew! You guys clearly have created something of which to be proud!

The Reason Showtime Turned Down The Kennedys

Filed under: Film Flickers

It had nothing to do with the quality of the project!

Although a few networks have turned down The Kennedys miniseries with an all-star cast, Showtime Networks president of entertainment David Nevins claims that it had nothing to do with how good the movie was.

He said:

“It wasn’t Showtime. I looked seriously at it, and thought it was well acted, well made and very watchable. What it really came down to was that it didn’t feel Showtime. It didn’t feel like premium cable. I have great respect and love for [Kennedys creator] Joel Surnow. He’s got a great cast. It didn’t fundamentally feel us. My vow coming in was to focus on renewable resources, and series are renewable resources.

I was hired to be the steward of this brand and bring the brand to the next phase of its existence. I felt it was not Showtime.”

Wow. We heard it the first time! Guess it wasn't A LOT of networks!

Showtime Renews The Big C And Weeds!

Filed under: TV News

We hope you're not sick of half hour comedies about mothers on the edge of nervous breakdowns, because there's going to be a lot more where that came from!

Showtime announced this morning that their hit shows The Big C and Weeds have been renewed for the 2011 season!

The Big C, which is headlined by the fantastic Laura Linney as a woman attempting to take her life back after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, debuted to 6.5 million viewers - Showtime's highest rated series debut in eight years. And Weeds, which is in the middle of its sixth season, is still holding an audience of about 6 million itself, so we're not surprised that they're sticking around!

David Nevins, Showtime's President of Entertainment, says:

"For six seasons, we've happily travelled along with Nancy Botwin and we're equally as excited to follow Laura Linney and The Big C team. We're thrilled that these two signature shows will be returning to the network in 2011."

It will certainly be interesting to see how long they can extend The Big C - especially when the main character is set to die from the first episode on!

And we wonder how much longer Weeds can go - it's certainly now the same show it started out as!

What do U think?? Will U continue to watch Weeds and The Big C next year??
