It seems like it’s coming down to the wire but lots of news about full season pick ups, hiatuses and Lost-like scheduling.
- Studio 60 gets a full season – I haven’t been shy in my criticism of the show but there’s a lot of potential so I’m glad it’s being given the chance to get better.
- Men with Trees Gets a Full Season but it’s in Six Degrees’ time slot – I don’t watch either of these shows. I tried them both but neither resonated with me. I thought Six Degrees had potential but after a few viewings it didn’t look like it was going to live up to its interesting premise. I’ll be shocked if its hiatus doesn’t really mean that Six Degrees is cancelled.
- Jericho is going to split its season to run uninterrupted – Jericho’s fall season will end November 29th and the show will return for a winter season February 21. I like this format for shows like Jericho and Lost. It lets the show keep momentum by keeping you intersted week to week. If you care (I don’t) King of Queens will air in Jericho’s time slot.
- Unaired Smith episodes are going to stream online at CBS.com – I really liked this show and was disappointed when Smith was cancelled. From my original posting it was clear that lots of people agreed. You’ll have the chance to see for yourself the direction the show was headed when they put all 7 episodes and a synopsis of where the show was going on cbs.com.
