William Shatner Gets Another TV Gig…On Psych!

Filed under: TV NewsWilliam Shatner

william shatner to return to tv

You can't keep a good Shatner down!

Last month, William Shatner's new Twitter-inspired show S#*! My Dad Says was cancelled, even though it started out pret-ty strong at first. Unfortunately, things went south when Rules of Engagement took its time slot.

William WILL return to TV this fall though, in a guest-starring role on USA's Psych. He'll play "the estranged father of Detective Juliet O'Hara," whose character is being described as follows:

"A charming con man who wants to mend his broken relationship with his daughter. But when the opportunity to pull off a dream con is presented to him, his decision to stay on the right side of the law becomes more complicated."

Sounds like fun! We're glad to see William keeping so busy at 80-years-old!

Will U check out William Shatner's guest-starring role on Psych this fall?

CBS Cancels Three More Shows

cbs-cancels-more-shows.jpg

Doesn't it seem like more shows are getting canceled this season than ever before?

CBS has canceled three more shows: S#*! My Dad Says, The Defenders, and Mad Love.

S#*! and Defenders were solid hits until both shows moved time slots.

The William Shatner comedy had a good lead in with Big Bang Theory, but when it was replaced by Rules of Engagement, things started to look rough for the sitcom. As for the Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell show The Defenders, once it was moved from its decent run on Wednesdays to Fridays, viewership dropped rapidly.

Ouch.

Unfortunately, for the new comedy Mad Love starring Jason Biggs and Judy Greer, it failed to connect with viewers and was canceled too.

Oh well! Guess some people are going to miss these shows.

Let's hope this makes room for some real quality television on CBS.

Yet ANOTHER Show Based On A Blog!

Filed under: TV NewsTwitter

another show based on a blog coming soon to abc

That's right, we've got yet another one of these shows in the works!

ABC has landed American Dad executive producer Nahnatchka Khan's new half hour comedy Dealbreaker, based on a blog/book of the same name.

The show will be co-written by Khan and American Dad writer Laura McCreary.

The blog that the show is based on was created by Dave Horwitz and Marisa Pinson, and it's described as follows:

"A hilarious reference guide to the qualities that, when discovered, tranform the 'date you hope to home with' into the 'date you pray never calls again"

This blog-based show follows a series of blog/Twitter based shows that have been created following the successful launch of CBS' $#*! My Dad Says, based on a Twitter feed of the same name.

Other blogs being transformed into shows include an ABC series based on the Awkward Family Photos blog/book, and Showtime's half hour comedy based on Alexi Wasser's provocative blog ImBoyCrazy.com.

So, when are we getting OUR show? LOLs.

Big Bang Causes A Big Bang In The Ratings

Congrats Big Bang! You totally rocked Thursday night ratings with 14 MILLION VIEWERS!!!! We're sure CBS is pumped.

CBS dominated the night with Big Bang's impressive performance, followed by William Shatner's $#*! Shit My Dad Says, which retained 12.5 million Big Bang viewers, and then CSI and The Mentalist, which brought in 14.6 million and 15.3 million viewers respectively.

NBC is probably LESS pumped with Community, which only brought in 5 million viewers.

Other NBC shows ratings' included 30 Rock with 5.8 million viewers, and more impressively The Office with 8.4 million, and Outsourced with 7.4 mill.

ABC landed the second place spot for the night, thanks to Grey's Anatomy, with 14 million viewers, and Private Practice, with 8 million viewers. They will NOT be thanking My Generation, which debuted with an unimpressive 5.2 million viewers.

Fox landed the fourth place position, and The CW trailed.

Congrats CBS! You guys seriously dominated Thursday night TV. Keep it up!

What did U watch on Thursday night?

Parents Television Council Won't Give Up Their Fight Against CBS

Filed under: TV NewsWilliam Shatner

The Parents Television Council (PTC) has been lashing out against CBS for their new show $#*! My Dad Says, but both CBS and show star William Shatner don't seem to care.

In an effort to continue their fight, the PTC is going to shift their focus from targeting national advertisers to "grassroots activists" who will "take their concerns directly to their hometown CBS affiliates and each affiliate's local advertisers."

Tim Winter, President of the PTC, says they'll hound local advertisers for CBS affiliates, in an effort to get them to refuse to advertise during the show. Good luck with that!

In response, CBS has said that the show will adhere to all of the network's standards, and they've made the following statement:

"Parents who choose to do so will find the show can easily be blocked using their V-Chip."

CBS makes a solid point. And honestly, PTC - this sounds like a lot of work for something that isn't THAT big a deal.

Just be happy that CBS has elected to use dollar signs and exclamation points instead of shit the actual word.

CBS FINALLY Goes Gay.

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsGay Gay Gay

Good! It's about time!

After receiving a negative report from GLAAD because not ONE SINGLE show on their network features a homosexual character, CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler revealed that it's all about to change!

During the Television Critics Association press tour, Tassler claimed that a gay character would be added to their new comedy $#*! My Dad Says, as well as one in Rules Of Engagement and also The Good Wife!

She explained:

"We're disappointed in our track record so far. We're going to do it. We're not happy with ourselves."

Agreed! We think it's absolutely shameful!

It's also too bad that they couldn't just work characters into the shows organically, or without outside pressures, but we do suppose it's a start!

What do U think?? Are U happy CBS is finally including gay characters in their programming?
