House on FOX.

Tonight is an all new episode of House.  With his license back and the show’s status quote returning, who will be a part of House’s “Dream Team”? I’d love to see Foreman, Thirteen. Chase, Cameron, and Taub all part of a mega team of sorts. We’ll see who House picks tonight. House airs on FOX at 8pm.

dollhouse-106-04

I can’t say I’m surprised, but I am disappointed; Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse has been canceled. The series has been struggling in the ratings from day one, but content wise has been getting better week after week.  Season two’s episodes are some of the best television I’ve seen in years and I would love to see where Joss and the gang would take this show in the long run.

In the very least, FOX is going to air all of the remaining episodes, and have given Joss proper notice to give a fitting conclusion to the series. If only we could reprogram FOX executives and make them keep good shows on the air.

We shut down the offices for a two week fall break and television news explodes! Not only do we have to catch up on our overloaded Tivo, but we gotta swim through all of the news, rumors, casting, and drama.  So I present, a special TV-inspired Pit.

  • No new word on its start date, but Chuck fans can rejoice, we just got an additional 6 episodes for the new season bringing us at least 19 episodes for the third season of the spy/adventure/romance/comedy.
  • I don’t know about you, but I’ve been enjoying Melrose Place, matched with 90210, it fills my guilty pleasure quota (left by The OC).  So it saddens me that due to ratings (blah, the system blows) The CW is revamping the series, making it much lighter (good-bye murder mystery) and clearing out part of the cast (wait and see, I don’t want to spoil the mystery like other sites).
  • The new Turk (Donald Faison) and Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) led Scrubs will be premiering on December 1st at 9pm on ABC.   The series sifts its focus from Sacred Heart Hospital to a medical school where Turk and Dr. Cox are teaches, others including Zack Braff and Sarah Chalke will be making guest spots throughout the season.
  • Watch Dollhouse! Go, now, watch it! It is the most improved show of the season and at this rate it is likely to be canceled due to low ratings.
  • ABC Family has set the start dates for The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Make It or Break It, and Greek. They will air in that order starting at 8pm on January 25th.
  • While the news about Dollhouse is a little grim, there is some light at the end of the Joss Whedon tunnel, he will be helming an episode of my favorite new series, GLEE! I can’t think of a better director for them to use.

More TV news will be coming soon, along with the continuation of the TV Flipped column. Thanks for the continued support of the site.

The Mid-Week Pit, Wolverine, Star Wars, Lost, Harry Potter, Action Movies

It has been a while since we’ve had a Pit (let along a mid-week version)! Sorry about the slow up, it is just that time of the year, but things are starting to pick up with the new season of television!

  • THOR has an official description: “The movie’s story centers on Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions re-ignite an ancient war. As punishment, Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans. Once here, he learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends dark forces of Asgard to invade Earth.” It sounds like it fits in well with Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk established in the Marvel movie universe.
  • Glee is pretty awesome. If you haven’t given it a chance yet, you can watch full episodes on FOX’s website for free.
  • Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, and Andrew Garfield have joined the cast of The Social Network. The flick focuses on the founding of Facebook and was scripted by Aaron Sorkin and set to be directed by David Fincher. Even with all of this talent, I just can’t get excited about a movie focusing on the formation of Facebook, Sounds like a complete borefest.  At least Jesse will be kicking some Zombie-ass soon enough.
  • Justin Lin has been signed to helm a reboot of Highlander. What happened to there can be only one? While I do like Lin’s work, I’d rather see them make Highlander 13 rather than start over with a “hot/young/sexy/hip/trendy/can’t act” cast. Oh well. As long as they don’t try to remake Back to the Future, I’ll be okay.
  • The cast of one of TV’s best shows, Damages, just got bigger.  Campbell Scott, Martin Short, Lily Tomlin and Keith Carradine will be joining Glenn Close and Rose Byrne for the series’ third season.  You can revisit the show’s first season here.

Glee, Best New Show on TV

If you haven’t taken the time to check out Glee, than you are missing one of the most enjoyable and entertaining shows to be created in a long long time.  The series follows a ragtag Glee Club and an assorted cast of crazy teenagers and teachers at a small high school and seamlessly blends comedy, drama and music.  If you missed the first two episodes, you can check them out here. The new episode airs at 9pm on FOX.

A clip from “Epitaph One,” the never before seen episode of Dollhouse‘s first season that features Felicia Day has been released online. The clip features Amy Acker’s Whiskey and what looks like a team of special ops trying to take down the Dollhouse.

I can’t wait for the second season of Dollhouse, I just really hope that Amy Acker is able to appear regardless starring in the new mystery drama, Happy Town. “Epitaph One” is included on Dollhouse‘s Season One DVD/Blu-Ray.
