The online video network gets close to a million weekly views with such shows as Table Top starring New Generation’s Wil Wheaton, the digital book club Sword & Lazer, and The Flog, a video blog starring Day herself. At the con, they revealed a slate of upcoming new programming.

Are you excited for Geek & Sundry’s upcoming new programming? Itching for The Guild to return with all new episodes? What else are you watching online? Click here to check out all that Geek & Sundry has to offer.

Tonight, just in time for Halloween we can get scared with an all new episode of The Walking Dead at 9pm on AMC. Official Description: “Save the Last One” The group await Shane’s return, unaware that he’s trapped in a school surrounded by zombies; Daryl and Andrea scour the woods for a missing person.

Last week’s episode airs before the new one at 8pm with an encore at 10pm and Talking Dead at 11pm. This week’s guests on Talking Dead  include The Guild star/creator Felicia Day, comedy actor Jon Heder and Dead executive producer (and big time movie producer) Gale Anne Hurd. Thankfully AMC Network was smart enough to already give the greenlight to the zombie series for a third season, although the pick up announcement was lacking an amount of episodes ordered. I will watch for as long as the series airs.

8PM

ABC: Once Upon a Time (fairy tale drama)
CBS: Amazing Race 19 (reality competition)
FOX: The Simpsons/Allen Gregory (animation)
NBC: Sunday Night Football (sports)

YouTube is responsible for making Internet video what it is today. It gave everyday people the change to publicly post videos to the world, whether it was their student film, home videos, comedy sketches or even their cats doing silly things. Well, YouTube is stepping up to the plate and attempting to hit another homerun, this time by helping to show that there is a potential future for WebTV to overthrow the real thing. This press release was posted on their blog earlier today:

Wonderful things happen when cool technology meets great entertainment. Cable television expanded our viewing possibilities from just a handful of channels to hundreds, and brought us some of the most defining media experiences of the last few decades– think MTV, ESPN and CNN. Today, the web is bringing us entertainment from an even wider range of talented producers, and many of the defining channels of the next generation are being born, and watched, on YouTube.

Today we’re announcing that even more talented creators and original entertainment will soon join YouTube’s existing channel lineup, including channels created by well-known personalities and content producers from the TV, film, music, news, and sports fields, as well as some of the most innovative up-and-coming media companies in the world and some of YouTube’s own existing partners. These channels will have something for everyone, whether you’re a mom, a comedy fan, a sports nut, a music lover or a pop-culture maven.

Our goal with this channels expansion, along with the grants and educational programs we’ve launched in the past year, is to bring an even broader range of entertainment to YouTube, giving you more reasons to keep coming back again and again. And for advertisers, these channels will represent a new way to engage and reach their global consumers.

The first of these new original channels will appear on YouTube starting next month and will continue over the next year. They’ll be available to you on any internet-connected device, anywhere in the world, with all the interactivity and social features of YouTube built right in.

You can check out a preview of their new channels by heading over here. Some stand outs in the bunch include Stan Lee’s World of Heroes, which will feature original stories about “unique characters and extraordinary individuals”, MyMusic, an interactive sitcom about a music company, and Geek & Sundry from Felicia Day.

Here at My Hollywood Dream we like to cover as much of Hollywood and the world of entertainment that we can (minus the ugly gossip). With that I welcome you to another edition of The Pit – Fall into it.

  • Queen-Geek and Dr. Horrible love interest Felicia Day is expanding her work online with a new web series that adapts the popular RPG series Dragon Age. It’ll be very cool to see Day, who stars and produces the video game related series The Guild, step into full on fantasy mode with Dragon Age: Redemption. The series takes place in an unspecified time in the ten year time span of the new entry into the fantasy game series, Dragon Age 2. The actual episodes fall in the six to nine minute range, which is very common for web shows, who viewers usually have a rather short attention span.
  • Sarah Jessica Parker wants to make a third Sex and the City movie. Thankfully no one else wants to.
  • Michael Emerson, Lost‘s creepy Ben, has been cast in a new pilot for JJ Abrams. Person of Interest sees him as a mysterious (wouldn’t have it any other way with Emerson) billionaire who teams up with an ex-CIA agent who is thought to be dead to stop violent crimes in New York City. No word on who will be the ex-CIA agent. If picked up, the show would be heading to CBS.
  • There is a Facebook event page promoting February 21st as “Send a Naked picture of yourself to Steve Buscemi Day” showing us that there is a Facebook page for just about anything. I’m so disturbed by the group that no, I will not post a link here. You’ll have to actually search for that yourself.
  • In another bit of TV casting new, Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek will be portraying… James Van Der Beek in the ABC pilot Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apt. 23. In the series he’d be an over the top version of himself, much in the vein of Neil Patrick Harris’ hysterical performance in the original Harold & Kumar (the sequel is best left forgotten).

Excited about Day’s new series? More interested in another Sex in the City sequel? How long do you think the Beek’s new series will last?

The 12 episode forth season of The Guild has come to a close.

In the season finale, “Guild Hall”, all of the Guild’s problems come to a head in the game! The episode was written by star/creator Felicia Day and costars Jeff Lewis as Vork, Sandeep Parikh as Zaboo, Robin Thorsen as Clara, Amy Okuda as Tinkerballa, Vincent Caso as Bladezz, and Day as Codex, and guest starred The Big Bang Theory‘s Simon Helberg.

You can check out the full forth season here. And The Guild‘s awesome music video, “Do You Want to Date My Avatar”, can still be watched here.

Have you checked out The Guild yet? The webseries comes from Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum and Dr. Horrible costar Felicia Day and focuses on the world of online gaming. The independent web series is a sitcom that follows the online (and offline) adventures of the members of “The Knights of Good”. The “Knights” are a guild in an undisclosed World of Warcraft style MMORPG video game.

The series began in mid-2007 and has completed three seasons, and has just premiered its forth season. After being produced on 0 budget, the popularity of the first season got the series picked up by Xbox Live along with a sponsorship from Sprint. The episodes themselves are between 3 and 8 minutes.

To see where you can view the series online, check out the show’s 141tv profile. In addition to Felicia Day, the series stars Jeff Lewis, Sandeep Parikh, Robin Thorsen, Amy Okuda, and Vincent Caso. Wil Wheaton, of Star Trek: The Next Generation fame, guest starred in the three season of the series and returns in the forth season. The show has also had two music videos, which you can watch here.

Dr Horrible Comic

Yesterday, Dr. Horrible #1 hit stands! The one-shot is a prequel origin story for the title character from the smash hit webseries Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.  The issue is written by Zack Whedon with art from Jolle Jones. Witness how Dr. Horrible was drawn into a world of crime and his first meeting/battle with Captain Hammer! The issue also features Penny and Moist.

Earlier, Dark Horse has released two short online prequels, one for Penny and the other for Captain Hammer!
