The guys at Indy Mogul have put together another awesome spoof superhero film (check out their Spirit spoof here). This flick shows some of the struggles that went into making the new Wolverine movie…

Scrubs, on ABC

I’ve been so focused on whether or not Chuck would be returning next season that this news piece fell under my radar. ABC is in talks with Scrubs executive producer Bill Lawrence about ways to lower the costs of the show and bring it back for another season. According to Variety, Zack Braff has expressed interest in returning for a hand full of episodes should the series return. Other key cast members, including John C. McGinley, Donald Faison and Neil Flynn, have all starred in new pilots, but it is unknown if any will be picked up for next season. Should they, the actors are all expected to return on at least a recurring basis. This would make room for some fresh blood that could possibly take the show into future seasons.

Chuck Finale on NBC. Save CHUCK!!!Tonight at 8pm on NBC is the second season finale of Chuck. The show is consistantly one of the most entertaining shows on television, but is sadly on the bubble for renewal. I hope everyone takes the time to check out the finale and help it get the ratings that it deserves. Watch it live, Tivo it, DVR it, then watch it again online!

Tonight, a lot of stuff is coming to ahead; the wedding of Ellie and Awesome, Chuck and Sarah’s relationship, and the war between the government and Fulcrum. Add to that a list of great guest stars including Scott Bakula, Chevy Chase, Morgan Fairchild, Tony Hale, Bruce Boxleitner, and Matthew Bomer returns as secret agent (and Chuck’s ex-college roommate) Bryce Larkin!

If you are new to Chuck, you’ll still be able to enjoy the action and witty comedy.  You can catch up on past episodes on Hulu, by clicking here. Currently they are streaming 12 episodes (episodes 11 to 21 of the current season). You’ll be able to fill in any missing gaps through the IMDB.

If you’d like some info on how you can help save Chuck, you can check out one of these Save Chuck Twitters (SaveChuck and Save_Chuck), or this Facebook group, the Sidereel site, the GiveMeMyRemote Campaign, and of course you can sign one of these petitions (Petition Spot and You Choose).

And finally, have you ever seen an actor lead a couple hundred fans to one of their show’s main advertisers to help save their show? This is going above and beyond!

What else is on TV tonight?

  • Nothing. Watch Chuck!

Who would have thought that a world that is completely frozen could be so compelling. I want to know what lead to this moment in time, and I want to see where it goes from here. Well done to the creators.

This teaser poster for the second season of HBO’s True Blood is a perfect way to start the week. It is striking, inventive and gets me juiced for new episodes.

Prison Break Final Episodes

Tonight at 9pm on FOX, Prison Break returns and is speeding toward its series finale. Continuing directly from the show’s Winter Break, Michael and Sara are hitchhiking to Miami while Lincoln confronts Christina, his mother who is part of the “Company”.

Now, I have only watched a handful of Prison Break‘s episodes in the past, but there is something about shows that are ending that makes me want to watch them.  The creative team behind the series had ample time to prepare and script the show for its finale. That gives me high hopes for a good bunch of episodes with a solid conclusion. Too many shows end without notice and are very unsatisfying.

What else can you watch tonight?

8PM

  • ABC: Wife Swap (Reality)
  • CBS: Ghost Whisperer (Supernatural Drama)
  • NBC: Howie Do It (Prank Clip Show)
  • MNT: Friday Night SmackDown! (Wrestling)

9PM

  • ABC: Supernanny (Reality)
  • NBC: Dateline NBC (News Showcase)

10PM

  • ABC: 20/20 (News Showcase)
  • E: The Soup (Comedy Clip Show) *Funniest Show on TV*
