Along with being the biggest month of the year for both series and season premiere’s for TV, September is also one of the biggest months for TV on DVD releases.  Don’t ask us why.  We think it’s kinda stupid to wait until September as, like we’ve already pointed out, the month is crammed with plenty of stuff to watch on TV AND it doesn’t give people much time to catch up before the next season begins, beyond the fact that it’s a wallet-buster.  It’s a massive month of overload, in our book.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t still be excited!  We’re especially looking forward to Fox’s mind-bending first season of Fringe, the fourth season of The CW’s cult-hit Supernatural (on blu-ray to boot!), Canadian sci-fi lite dramedy Being Erica‘s first season and, of course, the third season of NBC’s comedy giant 30 Rock.

In anticipation of the release of Fringe‘s first season on September 8th, they setup a cool website in which you can enter to win a visit to the show’s set in Vancouver, among other things.  Once you enter  you can watch a video about the difficulties of filming the episode The Ghost Network and then play a game which, if you answer correctly, gives you five extra entries into that set visit contest.  And here’s a little hint for our readers: you may wanna brush up on some episodes of ABC Family’s Greek for some help on the game.  Check out the site: Completethepattern.com

Samantha Who? & Kings Update

In ABC, Kings, NBC, Samantha Who? on 04/22/2009 at 1:06 pm

Variety reports that, despite being pulled off the air this week, there’s still a chance Samantha Who? could return for a third season. The remaining 7 episodes of this season could either be added to next years schedule or, if canceled, aired over the summer. What the heck is going on over at ABC?

At NBC word has come down to suspend Kings until summertime. Saw this coming in the last few weeks.

In Coming! What’s On This Weekend

In Breaking Bad, Brothers and Sisters, Desperate Housewives, Grey Gardens, In Plain Sight, In Treatment, Kings, Law and Order: Criminal Intent, Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency, The Tudors on 04/17/2009 at 2:43 am

Most people’s DVR’s will betting quite a rest this weekend. Believe it or not, the only new drama for Friday night is Fox‘s doomed Prison Break. NBC has that new episode of Kings I mentioned Saturday at 8pm and The Best of Amy Poehler should be good for some laughs at 11:30. Sunday sees the return of Law & Order: Criminal Intent and In Plain Sight on USA, Desperate Housewives and Brothers & Sisters return to ABC after a small break and AMC has a new Breaking Bad.

When we last saw Desperate Housewives, Gabrielle was horny, Lynette was overworked but got some revenge, Orson was on the run, Bree refused to give up her company, Dave got found out and Edie was shocked to learn the truth and then shocked again.

Jesse hit the jackpot and Walt‘s money excuse was cut off of Breaking Bad.

Brothers & Sisters left off with Ryan being a jerk, Tommy still on the run, though not aware that Holly has gotten him off the hook. Rebecca and Justin are still on the outs, Sarah has returned to Ojai and Kitty and Robert are having some big marital problems.

And of course, don’t forget the pay cablers: HBO airs Grey Gardens on Saturday. It’s a movie adaptation of the 1975 documentary following the black sheep of the Kennedy family. On Sunday HBO has new In Treatment and Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency while Showtime has new The Tudors.

NBC Moves Kings To Saturday This Week

In ABC, Dirty Sexy Money, Eli Stone, Kings, NBC, Pushing Daisies on 04/14/2009 at 4:17 am

NBC‘s Kings popped up on my Scheduled Recordings list for Saturday 04-18-09 at 8pm. It’s usual Sunday 8pm slot will be the second hour of Miss USA 2009, not a program known for high ratings. I’m wondering if this is a sign to come for the series. When running a special a network would usually give a series the week off, not move it to the junk yard of tv schedules.

While the show had the potential to be fantastic, it has fallen a bit short but I didn’t think it was bad enough to shove over to quite possibly the worst slot for a tv show for a beauty pageant.

Saturday evenings tend to be filled with three types of shows: ones that are already cancelled with a few episodes left to run out, reruns of shows networks heads have big hopes for and are looking to bolster their numbers and shows that are about to be cancelled. We’ll see which it is.

Speaking of cancelled shows with episodes left to air, ABC announced last week that they’ll broadcast the final few episodes of this season’s 3 axed series, Eli Stone, Pushing Daisies and Dirty Sexy Money. I’m glad they’ll finally be back, if only for a short time, as I enjoyed all three. Pushing Daises returns May 30th, Eli Stone June 20th and Dirty Sexy Money July 18th. They’ll air Saturday nights at 10pm.

Get them on iTunes: Kings, Eli Stone, Pushing Daisies, Dirty Sexy Money.
