John from Cincinnati: His Visit: Day 9 (season finale)

(S01E10) We got three great things in what I suspect was the last episode of John from Cincinnati ever: 1. Dylan 2. The Zip is back. 3. Wuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu! Seriously though, to the three of us left watching this show, WTF?...

John From Cincinnati arrested for DUI

OK, so the show isn't coming back, that's no reason to go out and get drunk. Austin Nichols, who played the mysterious (was he still mysterious at the end? I stopped watching after three episodes) John on HBO's John From Cincinnati, was arrested in Jackson, MI at 2:30am for driving under the influence. According to TMZ.com, he was driving the wrong way down a one way street, was stopped by police who gave him a breathalyzer test after smelling alcohol, and brought to the police station. The best part of this story is the mug shot. I mean, look at him. Doesn't he just look really John From Cincinnati-ish? [via TV Tattle]...

How about John From WKRP In Cincinnati?

As Rich reported this morning, there's already a petition online to save HBO's John From Cincinnati from the canceled show graveyard. I doubt this is going to work, because of the reaction from viewers and the fact that David Milch probably wants to go on and do something else. But the gang at Best Week Ever has a great idea if it were to come back: change it to John From WKRP In Cincinnati! OK, the joke doesn't go beyond changing the opening of the show, adding Loni Anderson, "Al Bundy" and (in a funny moment) Brian Austin Greene (?), but it's still a clever idea. I would have loved to have seen what this John guy could have done to those turkeys in the WKRP Thanksgiving episode. "As God is my witness I thought turkeys could fly." That sounds like one of John's weird quotes. ...

John From Cincinnati is not the most creative TV show of all-time

Sometimes you come across a line in a column, an opinion, an observation, that is so mindblowingly wrong-headed that it leaves your mouth hanging open for a full 30 seconds. That's what happened to me when I read this list of the Shows That Died Too Young (great one season shows that shouldn't have been canceled) over at The New York Post. Talking about HBO's John From Cincinnati, the writer says this: John [From Cincinnati] was not only the most creative program in the medium's sixty year history, but also some of the most mysterious. Now, the second half of that quote is grammatically baffling, but we get the idea: JFC was the most creative show that has been on television in its 60 year history. Well, what do you think of that?...

HBO says buh-bye to John

I don't think anyone will be too surprised by the following news. One day after the finale of John from Cincinnati aired on HBO the pay-cable network decided to pull the plug on the quirky surfer drama co-created by David Milch. Unlike Milch's other creation for HBO, the critical and fan favorite Deadwood, John never clicked with viewers, despite a strong cast that featured Bruce Greenwood and Rebecca De Mornay. If you doubt me take a look at some of the comments made by your fellow TV Squad readers on the show. While many of them were fascinated by the concept, and gave Milch the benefit of the doubt, they also expressed confusion and boredom about the show. ...

Milch back to work at HBO

First it was Deadwood, then it was John From Cincinnati. Now, it seems, David Milch has decided to get back to his cop roots with Last of the Ninth. Last of the Ninth is a cop drama that focuses on the rampant corruption of the NYPD in the 1970's...

John from Cincinnati: His Visit: Day One (series premiere)

(S01E01) Unlike my esteemed colleagues at various print publications, I did not have access to John from Cincinnati's press screener weeks before the show's broadcast. I would have to write my review within an hour or two after watching the premiere with the rest of America. This is all well and good, but I was a little nervous about what I would make of David Milch's latest outing without some time to reflect. I didn't want my commentary to be mired in superfluous comments about how Ed O'Neill and Rebecca De Mornay are looking these days. This series is drawing on an "everything and the kitchen sink" range of literary and philosophical references. It deserves more from me so I prepared by reading everything that was available – namely the script, interviews with Milch and the early reviews....

More on Milch's John from Cincinnati

Monday's New York Times features a story on David Milch and the writing process behind his forthcoming HBO pilot John from Cincinnati. If you've been reading our reports on the series' casting, you know that HBO's enthusiasm for this project is what brought about the earlier-than-anticipated-end of Milch's other HBO outing, Deadwood. Most Deadwood fans, including myself, were pretty pissed to find out that Deadwood was getting the boot thanks to a show about the first family of surfing, but what are you going to do? Artists grow. They change. They want to write other stuff, and most fans of Milch will follow him anywhere including the sunny California coast....

David Milch's John From Cincinatti - TCA Report

Fresh off of Deadwood (does anyone else think that left the air too soon?), David Milch and the cast presented their new surfing drama John From Cincinnati to the TCA. Most surprising was the fact that there are some mystical elements to the show ... although they weren't really elaborated on at the panel. The clips offered up contained scenes of levitation and a bird seeming to come back to life, but seeing them out of context makes us unsure to label them just yet. Milch did get a bit esoteric though, and said that the show takes place on "the edge of the coordinates of reality." It has a vague aura of Six Feet Under around it, even though the subjects are entirely different, and I tend to like shows that aren't laid out for you in black and white....

This week's petition: Save John from Cincinnati

And now, the other side of the debate. As we previously mentioned, HBO decided not to renew the surf-noir drama John from Cincinnati on Monday, which happened to be the day after the series finale aired. On Tuesday, the day after it was canceled, an Internet petition was created to save the show. The description of the petition doesn't say much, other than HBO should stop being a s*it heel by giving viewers innovative television that they take away to soon. Oh, it also says that the premium-cable network should stop being stupid and finish Deadwood. All their words, folks, not mine. At the time I write this there are 110 signatures. If you want to add your name to the list then click right here. [Thanks to Eban for this information]...

Luke Perry joins cast of David Milch's latest

Former 90210 heartthrob Luke Perry has joined the cast of Deadwood scribe David Milch's latest outing for HBO, John from Cincinnati. Production on the series began this month with Perry in a guest starring role that has turned full-time. If you've been following news about Deadwood, you know that John from Cincinnati is the project responsible for truncating our beloved Black Hills-set episodic. HBO chief Chris Albrecht told reporters back in July that he was the guy who suggested ending Deadwood early to get started on John, a project for which he apparently has more enthusiasm. I personally have yet to forgive him for this....
