When will my shows return

Posted by BenSpark on March 11, 2008

So, with the writer’s strike over, when will the shows that I care about return. Some as early as Monday… Yeah!!! There is a complete list at Entertainment Weekly.com

THE BIG BANG THEORY (CBS)
RETURNS March 17
EPISODES TO AIR 9

BONES (Fox)
RETURNS April 14
EPISODES TO AIR 4+
INSIDE SCOOP Four eps are in the can, and Bones will shoot at least six more; the extra episodes have yet to be scheduled.

COLD CASE (CBS)
RETURNS March 30
EPISODES TO AIR 5

CSI (CBS)
RETURNS April 3
EPISODES TO AIR 6

CSI: MIAMI (CBS)
RETURNS March 24
EPISODES TO AIR 8

HEROES (NBC)
RETURNS Fall 2008
EPISODES TO AIR 22+
INSIDE SCOOP Heroes plans to resume production in April; extra episodes could air next season. Story focus: supervillains on the loose!

That is a ways to wait for new Heroes but I do have Rising Stars to finsh reading, that should tide me over.

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER (CBS)
RETURNS March 17
EPISODES TO AIR 9

LOST (ABC)
CURRENTLY AIRING For 10 episodes
INSIDE SCOOP Lost will take a break in mid-March before resuming the next month; the 16-episode season arc will be told in 13 episodes.

What kind of crap is that. So now not only are we getting a hiatus break but we are also losing 3 episodes this season. Damn you writers!!!

MOONLIGHT (CBS)
RETURNS April 11
EPISODES TO AIR 4

MY NAME IS EARL (NBC)
RETURNS April 3
EPISODES TO AIR 8+
INSIDE SCOOP On Earl’s list: Atone for his absence. There’s talk of expanding some of these eight episodes into hour-long affairs.

That is great news.

THE OFFICE (NBC)
RETURNS April 10
EPISODES TO AIR 5 or 6

SCRUBS (NBC)
RETURNS April 10
EPISODES TO AIR 5, may shoot 4 more

Well at least we will get an ending to this show, unless it moves to another network.

New Chuck this month

Posted by BenSpark on January 11, 2008

There may be two new episodes of Chuck aired this month. There were two episodes in the can when the writer’s strike hit. We may find out what will happen after the last aired episode where it looked like Casey had the green light to take out Chuck.

Let’s hope that Chuck has some super spy type cufflinks to help him get out of this latest jam. I really don’t want to see Casey turn to a bad guy. He has always been a bit iffy in the show and could easily threaten Chuck’s life but let’s hope that he has a change of heart and does not complete his mission.

Scrubs may not have an end…

Posted by BenSpark on January 11, 2008

I was reading on Pop Candy that because of the writer’s strike the last episodes of Scrubs may not make it to air. The finale will be left in J.D.’s head or rather the head of creator Bill Lawrence. This strike is getting annoying. I know that some shows are coming back and the late night guys have come back, hire some new writers, get these shows back on. I’m running out of Smallville DVDs. This strike could ruin many many shows, and the writer’s are not the only people affected, what about everyone who works on the production of TV shows. They have been out of work as well. Settle this thing!
