Everybody Hates ChrisEarly pickups are always happy news -- especially if your favorite TV shows are among those getting the renewal. So, today's announcement that Smallville, Supernatural, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, America's Next Top Model and the sitcom Everybody Hates Chris are all returning to the CW next season is a reason to smile.

Tyra Banks, star hostess of America's Next Top Model, will be back for cycles 11 and 12. One Tree Hill will be back for a sixth season; and Gossip Girl will start season two. Women, that all important 18-34 demographic, are faithful viewers for these three shows.

Hollywoodland probes Reeves death

HollywoodlandSince this is a TV blog, we don't really talk much about movies. We leave that to our sister blog Cinematical. But sometimes a movie comes along that has something to do with television, and Hollywoodland is one of those movies. It's about the death of TV Superman George Reeves. He was shot in his bedroom during a party in June of 1959. The official cause of death was listed as suicide (upset over the lack of roles offered because he was typecast), but many think he was murdered.

Box Office Prophets has a nice interview with Hollywoodland screenwriter Paul Bernbaum, where he discusses the writing process for the film, how the final script differs from his version, Ben Affleck (he plays Reeves in the film), and the politics of getting a writing credit in Hollywood. It's also very cool to not only find out that Bernbaum started out as a scriptwriter on one of my favorite TV shows, Riptide, in the 80s, but that he'd like to work on a film about Philo Farnsworth, the inventor of television, which I talked about the other day.
