Most of my data was collected from this blog.  So, based on this info, and making the big assumption that all the shows I’ve listed as in trouble would not be coming back, my TV viewing would be down from 44 shows to 28 for the beginning of next year (not counting any new shows I might be interested in).  That’s a pretty big drop!  (Yes, yes, I know it’s a lot, but keep in mind these aren’t all on at the same time (i.e. season) and I also DVR pretty much everything, so it’s not like I’ve sucked up all my evenings with TV unless I happen to be home.)  Also, I have to admit that I didn’t get around to watching either Life on Mars or My Own Worst Enemy.  I had them all stored up on my DVR for watching till I heard they got cancelled.  Not much reason to start liking something after the fact.  Also, I read about the finale of Life on Mars and was disappointed they went that route, so I decided not to watch even though it ended up being a complete story.

Upcoming TV shows

Posted by spragujs on March 18, 2009

Man, there’s a reason my post per day record hasn’t been so good! I’m just not that full of ideas. Anyway, I read and other TV related sites/blogs probably a little too much, and today I came across a couple things that I thought I’d write about.

First, Prison Break (which I started watching again this year) is going to air 6 more (last?) episodes starting April 17.  Also, Eureka will start up again July 7 when the Sci Fi Channel becomes SyFy.  (IMO, dumb DUMB name, but whatever, and also Yay! Eureka!)  Apparently SyFy’ll be launching a new show to play along with Eureka called Warehouse 13, which of course is basically Area 51, only not where Area 51’s supposed to be.  There are agents set to guard all the stuff in the Warehouse.  The show is said to be a cross between the X-files, Moonlighting, with a bit of Eureka thrown in.  I’m mostly interested in watching ’cause the guy who played Sully on Bones is going to be one of the leads.  We’ll see how it goes!  I’m also curious about Stargate Universe though I don’t know when it’s going to start.  I really enjoyed SG1 and Atlantis, so there’s no reason to not sample Universe.  But again, we’ll see!  I have to admit to being a bit dubious about this new one, though I can’t say for sure why.

And last but not least, I’m really kinda looking forward to Harper’s Island.  This blog I read frequently (and the podcast I enjoy muchly even if I don’t watch half the shows they talk about) has a summary of the characters and a bit of the plot.  It’s not a miniseries exactly, but it’s also not what we Americans think of as a full TV show either.  It’ll be 13 episodes of horror/murder mystery.  I’m not looking forward to the horror part as much, but I do love a good mystery (murder or otherwise)!  😉  Starts at 10:00 pm April 9 on CBS after Eleventh Hour completes its season.

Eureka – All That Glitters and A Night in Global Dynamics

Posted by spragujs on October 5, 2007

Ok, Tuesday night I watched the last two episodes of Eureka for this season. I’d have probably watched All that Glitters last week if my DVR had recorded it like it was supposed to. :-\ In any case, at least this way I got to avoid the cliffhanger that was the ending of Glitters!

Quick update with great news: There will be a season three! (YAY!)

Well, here’s my recap, however long it might be, plus some thoughts…

Summer TV Rehash

Posted by spragujs on July 10, 2007

Ok, so yeah, some of these shows are supposedly summer shows and yet they’re already over?! Also, I ended up watching several more than I originally posted about… Anyway, so a bit of an update.

Already over:
Drive, also got canceled, Fox was supposedly going to play the last two filmed episodes, but that’s been put off twice now, so we’ll see what happens :-\
Falcon Beach, I think has also been canceled, but at least there was a semi-normal ending to the season/series (though there was some debate about that)
Stargate: Atlantis – what a freaking cliffhanger ending to this season! *tears out hair*
Traveler – ok, its last episode will be tomorrow, so I’m just sticking it here, also, sounds like it’s going to be the series finale as well as the season finale
Hidden Palms – also got canceled, had a pretty good ending though

Still on:
The 4400 – 9:00 Sundays on ABC
Kyle XY – 8:00 Mondays on ABC Family
Eureka – 9:00 Tuesdays on SciFi
So You Think You Can Dance – 8:00 Wednesdays and 9:00 Thursdays on Fox

Might start watching:
Psych – no idea when it’s on, that’s what TiVo will be for I guess
Design Star – 10:00 Sundays on HGTV
Mad Men – 10:00 Thursdays on AMC
Damages – 10:00 Tuesdays on FX
