The CW announced their new fall lineup and the big news is that Supernatural gets yet another new night on their lineup. Why can’t they leave that poor show alone? I don’t get why The Originals isn’t following The Vampire Diaries, but I guess they realize that CBS is offering up a really strong Thursday. I am bummed that they didn’t have Hart of Dixie and The Carrie Diaries paired together because that seems like a better fit that HOD with Beauty and the Beast. BatB would be great with America’s Top Model, because that is what the show is like. They are beauties on the runway, but beasts when they are off of it.
Here is the new fall schedule:
8:00-9:00 PM HART OF DIXIE (New Night)
9:00-10:00 PM BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (New Night)
8:00-9:00 PM THE ORIGINALS (New Series)
9:00-10:00 PM SUPERNATURAL (New Night)
8:00-9:00 PM ARROW
9:00-10:00 PM THE TOMORROW PEOPLE (New Series)
8:00-9:00 PM THE VAMPIRE DIARIES
9:00-10:00 PM REIGN (New Series)
8:00-9:00 PM THE CARRIE DIARIES (New Night)
9:00-10:00 PM AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL
Some Vampire Diaries fans will be happy with this news, while other will be upset to find out that Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have ended their three year relationship. A source told Us Weekly the co-stars “will continue to work together and remain best friends, which is where the relationship started.” No reason was given for the break up, but I am sad to hear that they are no longer together as a couple.
Jamie King and her husband Kyle Newman are expecting their first child later this year according to People. No word if the pregnancy will affect the third season of Hart of Dixie, but I hope it does because I would love to see who fathered Lemon’s baby!
The CW announced today that it was picking up Hart of Dixie for a third season and Beauty and the Beast for a second one. They also announced that The Originals, a spinoff from The Vampire Diaries, will be joining those two dramas, Supernatural, TVD and Arrow on the lineup in the fall.
While this all good news, it would be even better if The CW also picked up The Carrie Diaries for a second season. It so needs to come back or I will gag The CW with a spoon!
UPDATE: CBS has picked up Two and a Half Men for an 11th season! So that means if they keep their lineup the way it is, they only have room to add one new comedy in the fall.
Cult was moved from Tuesdays to Friday in hopes of saving it, but today The CW has pulled the show from its lineup for the foreseeable future. The show within in a show will be replaced by repeats for the at least the next three weeks. The Carrie Diaries (which they better pick up for season 2) season finale will air in its Friday night slot at 9p this week and then Oh Sit will fill in for the two weeks after that.
So what is the future for Cult? At this point the network has not made a decision. I guess we will have to try and brainwash them to get it back on the air or on their App at least to conclude its season. I wanted to see where they were going to go next with the show.
UPDATE: The show’s Cult leader Robert Knepper had this to say about Cult being pulled from the schedule, “It was a loss we were expecting, but I’m still saddened by the news. A great bunch of artists to work with. Onward and parallel. #cult” I will miss having him on our TVs every week, but I am sure he will be back before we know it.
Tonight at 8p it is the season finale for The Carrie Diaries and it is time for the Junior Prom. Can you guess who will be going and who they are going with?
Will Sebastian and Carrie kiss and make up and go together or are they forever dunzo? Will Mouse go public West or will she keep their relationship a secret? Will Mags and Walt go together as friends? Will Donna LaDonna be Prom Queen? I can’t tell you any of that!
What I will tell you is Carrie goes to another Manhattan party that we all wish we could go to? She will also get an offer she can’t refuse? Her dad and her sister will be having better luck in love, but how long can that last? Maggie finds out why Walt and her really broke up? And let’s just say she doesn’t handle finding out he likes boys well. We find out more about Mouse and she finds out more about herself. Two friends share a forbidden kiss. Someone loses their virginity. Someone gets rejected. And two are friends are friends no more. And did I mention our first Sex and the City girl is part of tonight’s episode?
While I am sad that tonight is the season finale of The Carrie Diaries, I am happy with how the first season turned out. I was never a SATC girl, but I can’t get enough of young Carrie Bradshaw. At the beginning of the season I thought I was a Maggie, but now I realize that I am Carrie! And I hope next season I find I am a Larissa! So to the CW, pick up this show already because it deserves a second season. And it also deserves to be paired with a show that wasn’t days away from being cancelled. Long live The Carrie Diaries!
So while tonight is the season finale, what does show creator Amy B Harris have in mind for season two. I was recently at a screening for The Carrie Diaries and she talked about just that. She said, “The first season was the age of innocence and then lost. We started with this very innocent Carrie looking at the world as she has all of these amazing firsts; first book parties, first Madonna parties, first I love yous. All of those moments are huge. But the fun of it for season two is after those moments have happened and you have had some betrayals and some hurt along the way, who do you become? I think that is the journey that all of the kids will be going through in season 2.” The she added, “Finding fun, organic ways to keep NY as a big presence for all of them. I want to see Sebastian on the loose in Manhattan without Carrie and see what that looks like. Walt’s budding relationship with Bennett. Opening the world for a lot of the characters and what NY can mean to those kids.” So when would season 2 start up, her dream would be to start in the summer.
And here is a part all of you fans from the original will like, she is watching Sex and the City to prep her for writing episodes for next season. If and when The CW gives her the green light!
Now talking about SATC, some asked Austin Butler how he plays Sebastian knowing he is not the one she winds up with. He explained, “I heard that when Daniel Day Lewis was playing Lincoln that he went to the museum. I heard that he wouldn’t go in the room past when he was assinated because he didn’t need to know anything past that. I kind of feel that way. I had to put the blinders on and put my focus into what happening right then and the feeling of love, the feeling of heartbreak and everything that is happening right now. And not focus on what is happening in the future.” You know that makes sense. And if I had the choice I would choose him over Mr. Big! Who would be your dream man?
Yesterday I went to a screening of tonight’s The Vampire Diaries that airs at 8p on The CW and so much good game changing stuff happens that I can’t tell you about it. I am not even kidding you, I got a really long list of Do Not Reveals after the screening. So instead of revealing anything that would spoil the episode for you, I will reveal to you that you don’t want to miss it. It is shocking moment after shocking moment and just when you think you know what is going to happen next things don’t go as thought you it would. Do you need anymore reason to watch? I promise you die hard fans, you are so not going to be disappointed in tonight’s heart pumping episode.
Starting on March 8th Cult will move from Tuesdays at 9p to Fridays at the same time on The CW. The show’s former slot will be replaced with repeats of their other shows on March 5 and Beauty and the Beast will be the first one to sample that slot.
I think that pairing Cult with a Nikita is a much better fit, plus the show will have less harmful competition on its new night. If you’ve missed the first two episodes of the show within a show, you can watch them online to find out what you’ve been missing out on.
The night starts off at 8p with an episode of The CW’s Arrow that will leave you gasping every few minutes. Just when you think they can’t shock you anymore they surprise you again. Tommy’s (Colin Donnell) dad Malcolm (John Barrowman) invites his son to an event that he is being honored at, but he hesitates until Oliver (Stephen Amell) convinces him to go after a heart-to-heart conversation. A decision Oliver will later regret because an assassin has his Deadshot (Michael Rowe) eye on taking out Malcolm and Arrow will have to go in to try to save the day. By the end of the night Tommy and Oliver’s friendship will be changed forever and they will not be able to get back to where they were once at. Think that is enough to get you to want more, it is just preparation for the evening’s final reveal… So make sure to tune in for a game changing episode because so much happens that you can’t miss a single shocking moment.
Then at 8:30p NBC’s Guys with Kids stages a Cosby Show reunion when Marny’s (Tempestt Bledsoe) irresponsible younger sister Bridget (Keshia Knight Pulliam) comes for a visit. Instead of just giving her money, Marny decides that her sister should work for her husband to earn the dough. Gary (Anthony Anderson) is against this for obvious reasons. Is he right or will his sister in law actually wind up helping him? Meanwhile Chris (Jesse Bradford) and Sheila (Erinn Hayes) decide to have another baby even though they are divorced. Something his best friend, Nick (Zach Cregger) is vehemently against. Luckily for him Chris’ ex-girlfriend Sage comes back into the picture and now he will have to choose which ex to be with. The season finale ends with Gary singing a Kelly Clarkson song and let’s just say it doesn’t suck and neither does this great episode!
Then at 9p on TNT Donnie Wahlberg honors the people his brother and him spent a lot of unwanted time in their youth with and they are Boston’s Finest. It is inside look at entire Boston Police Department, including patrol officers, detectives, special task forces and members of the SWAT Team, the Fugitive Unit and highly decorated Gang Unit. Besides following them as they fight crime, we get to see what their lives are like when the badge comes off. In a way it is like the reality version Wahlberg’s CBS show, but set in Boston. You really go along for the ride with them and after you watch it you will want to tip your hat to these brave men and women. Wahlberg really gives these people the respect they deserve with this series.
Then at 10p Psych is back on USA and it picks up exactly where it left off. Shawn (James Roday) arrives just as his father Henry (Corbin Bersen) was shot. Now it is up to him to save his dad and get the man responsible for shooting him. Even though Jules (Maggie Lawson) and Lassie (Timothy Omundson) tell Shawn to sit this case out, he doesn’t listen. Will Shawn get himself into a situation he can’t get out of and does his dad survive? You will have to tune into find out!
Finally at 10p Stranded makes it debut on Syfy at 10p and this is an interesting twist on ghost hunter shows. Each week four everyday people will be sent to a location for 5 days to investigate if it is really haunted. They will be cut off from the world meaning no phones, no computers and no way to leave, and they will have nothing to do to but find out if there are any ghosts with them. They will be given the equipment to find out if they are alone or not and what they discover will not only spook them, it will do the same to you. I loved Stranded so much that when it gets picked up for a second season, I am so going to try to be on it.
Heather turns into a beast for her sister tonight on The CW’s Beauty and the Beast at 9p.
When Heather (Nicole Anderson) catches her sister Cat (Kristin Kreuk) with a guy, she can’t wait to meet the mysterious man. Of course Cat doesn’t want her to meet Vincent (Jay Ryan), but it looks like she has no choice because her younger sis just won’t back down. So now Vincent will come out of the shadows to meet Heather for a dinner with Darius (Cat’s boyfriend) and the two sisters, and things won’t go well. After Vincent leaves, Heather tells Cat it’s either him or her. So now she will have to decide who she wants in her life more. By the end of the episode, she will make her decision and a couple will be forever over. Think you know who? Tune in for an episode that will leave you with tears in your eyes.
