Wall Street is a place where more happens than most of us are aware of. This is the place where so much about the price of different goods is determined. It is important that you are paying attention to what is going on up there. That is why the show Wall Street Warriors is so interesting to me. This show is all about the different people that work on Wall Street. It shows the different things that they do in their jobs and helps explain what is going on to the average individual out there who has no clue about what is going on.

I think that a show like Wall Street Warriors is great both as an educational show and for entertainment value as well. I personally make sure that I tune in each week on my bestchoicetv.com to catch the episodes. It is a new show, so it is hard to say which episode is my favorite yet. I would just say the first episode titled “Capitalism Rules” simply because of the fact that it was the episode that introduced me to the show. If you want to be entertained or educated, it is important that you make sure that you tune in to this show as often as possible. I learn something new every time I tune in and I think you will too.

Oscar nominee James Franco is making a grand return to General Hospital at the end of September. Unlike most actors that get their start in soaps, Franco decided to go for a run on the long running daytime drama in 2009, well after he found success in both television and film. I love Franco and his Hospital serial killer character of the same name and I can’t wait to see what they do with him on this go around. It is said to be a “long-term” arc. With One Life to Live and All My Children canceled off of ABC, General Hospital is going to have to pull out all of the stops to prove that the show still belongs in the lineup and this is a good step towards that.

More goodies from the Wonder Woman pilot that will never see the light of day have surfaced, includes two clips from the proposed series and a bunch of pretty cool storyboards. The storyboards are by concept artist Cesar Lemus and show shots from the released clips (like the above one) along with glimpses of WW’s origin on Paradise Island. Was her origin originally going to be in the pilot but got cut out or were they saving it for later? After watching the footage, this series seems like less of a fit for NBC and more of a fit for the CW. It could have been a good guilty pleasure superhero series to replace Smallville… oh well.

Terra Nova, the new high concept time travel/dinosaurs series from Fox, just released three awesome posters. Check out one of them below and the other two over on the Hollywood Reporter.

The new series stars Jason O’Mara, Christine Adams, Naomi Scott, Allison Miller, Landon Liboiron, Shelley Conn, Alana Mansour, Mido Hamada, and Avatar‘s badass villain Stephen Lang. It premieres on September 26th.

It might not be the “end” for The Event afterall! NBC’s low rated gimmicky drama was recently canceled by the network, but it looks like a cable company under the NBC Universal family is interested in reviving the series.

The SyFy Channel is in talks to pick up the series and turning it into a mini series event (sorry for the unnecessary pun, but I had to). As with shows in the past, such as The 4400, if the mini series does well it could spinoff into a new regular series. The show has had 22 episodes and stars Jason Ritter, Sarah Roemer, Ian Anthony Dale, Zeljko Ivanek, Blair Underwood and Laura Innes. It would be very interesting to see how the show would be reshaped for the once “sci-fi” channel and how a much lower production budget would effect the show. Which cast members would return? Would the series take a more supernatural or science fiction turn?

It shouldn’t be too surprising that SyFy is looking at the canceled NBC series. Although I’m shocked that they aren’t gunning for the also canceled V remake. Sure, it was an ABC show, so the rights might be a little tougher (or more expensive to get), but it seems to fit so much better with the SyFy model. And out of the two shows, I think it had the better cast (Lost and Buffy alum in leading roles? Yeah, I’m in) and much more potential (What is The Event anyway?).  Fox also canceled the DC Comics adaptation Human Target, while not sci-fi, it could have been a cool fit for the network. Are there any recently cancled shows that you’d love to see revived on Cable? What are they? Sound off in the comments!

Okay, so I’ll try to post something other than a “save this show” type of article tomorrow, but today I could not help it. Mondays are Chuck and it seems like the “We Give a Chuck” Twitter campaign has had some positive responses with retweets by Pepsi and Diet Pepsi. We will see if any other sponsors were impressed by the fans.

Due to my lack of Internet connection, I have not really been able to respond to the announcement by ABC that they would be canceling All My Children in September followed by One Life to Live in January. I think this is a huge mistake and would make one of the most unique forms of entertainment even closer to extinction. If you love them or hate them, there is no denying that Soap Operas are special. Most of the ones left have been on the air close to or longer than 40 years. Continuing stories that have never taken a break, new every weekend of the year with towns of characters that grow and evolve over time. Sure, the stories might be over the top, and sometimes downright bizarre, but soaps have also had groundbreaking stories dealing with everything from teenage pregnancy to rape, and even featured interracial couples well before anyone else had the guts to. They have been endlessly entertaining for countless fans.

These two classic shows are being replaced with talk shows. Cheap to produce cookie cutter garbage. This is obviously just the network’s desire to cut costs regardless of the product they put out. Well, it looks like it might slightly backfire, as one of ABC’s sponsors is also a big fan of AMC and OLTL. Hoover has pulled all of their advertising from ABC programs and has issued this statement:

To all the loyal ABC soap fans,

I want you to know from me personally that we hear you loud and clear. My wife and mother are both passionate viewers of All My Children and One Life to Live, as are many of my colleagues here at Hoover. We were and are as disappointed with this news as you are.

In fact, we will discontinue our advertising with ABC this Friday, 4/22. We’re making every attempt to pull our spots from these programs sooner.

Because we feel that’s not enough, we also want to help get your voice heard with ABC. So, we’ve set up a special email address, SaveTheSoaps@Hoover.com, to help pull together the mass emotional outpouring of support for our beloved ABC soaps and get it to our contacts at ABC. Please, send your emails to us at SaveTheSoaps@Hoover.com, and we’ll get every, single last one of them to ABC.

We’re 150% committed to doing what matters most to you – so if there’s anything else we can do to help or you have any ideas, please email this address, and we will respond to you personally.

Thank you for standing up for what matters to you! We need more of that in this world.

Brian Kirkendall
Vice President of Marketing
Hoover

With companies like Hoover getting behind fans, there might actually be a chance that we could save AMC and OLTL. We have some time before they’ll be over, but the question is, how do we go about saving them?

Well, it is that time again, time to get together and rally to save what I think is the most enjoyable show on TV, NBC’s Chuck. The gang over at We Give a Chuck have an all new plan underway. Sorta like how fans targeted Subway to save the show in the past, this time the site is trying to get people to message sponsors via Twitter during the show’s commercial breaks to get their attention and let them know that a lot of Chuck fans might not have Nielsen boxes, but they are watching.

Full details:

This Monday night at 8pm EST, Chuck will begin. One of our awesome teammates will be tweeting from the @WeGiveAChuck twitter handle. As each commercial runs she will tweet about that commercial to both the advertiser and NBC.

Example:
@Sponsor just saw your ad on @NBC’s #Chuck. Thx! You support Chuck, I’ll support you PS-I use the Sponsor all the time! #NotANielsenFamily

As these tweets go up, we are asking viewers (that’s you!) to send out tweets of your own, similar to ours, but with a little variation. Throw in your own fun fact for the advertiser. If Toyota runs a commercial and your family has one, let them know! End all tweets with #NotANielsenFamily

Of course I’ll be attempting to go along with this tonight, but it does seem overly complicated.  Do we message every sponsor? Or just the big ones? Different cites have different sponsors, so our messages will be all over the place. I don’t see how we could have the power to get anyone’s attention if we’re not targeting a few select sponsors, rather than whatever happens to be on in the local station by you. Their heart is in the right place for this effort to help save Chuck, but I think we have to do something bigger and more focused to save the show.
