This move shows what an immense amount of faith the network has in 'The Vampire Diaries' -- and it's not unwarranted. No other show on television delivers so consistently every week. Never seen it before? Now's your chance to catch up on the second season. Read on for five reasons why you should tune in.
And we got to see Melissa again. Lance's wife has to be one of the most controversial figures of this entire season. Not to let her original stint stand, she was back in über-competitive mode again this week when Alison revealed that there was a marathon of a challenge for the contestants while they were at home.
There've been competitive game players before on 'The Biggest Loser,' and there are some there right now. Michael has proven himself more than willing to strategize to better his position. So why does it come across so poorly when Melissa is doing it?
To honor the prolific career of Clint Eastwood,Turner Classic Movies will devote the day to him. On May 31, the network will give us 24 hours of Eastwood, including 'The Eastwood Factor,' a documentary that has previously only been available as part of the boxed set 'Clint Eastwood: 35 Films.'
Incredible though it may seem, Clint Eastwood will be 80 (!) on May 31.
To celebrate, Turner Classic Movies will pay tribute to the iconic actor/director with a 24-hour marathon of his movies.
Beginning at 6AM with 1956's 'The First Traveling Salesleady,' the cable network will run many fan favorites, including 'Dirty Harry,' 'Magnum Force' and 'Hang 'Em High.' In addition, the network will air 'The Eastwood Factor,' a documentary narrated by his 'Invictus' star, Morgan Freeman.
The idea of reliving the sitcom fun of the nanny named Fran blowing into the life of theatrical producer Maxwell Sheffield and falling in love with him while taking care of his three children was the stuff of television romance when it aired on CBS from 1993 to 1999.
Part The Sound of Music, part schmaltzy broad Jewish shtick, The Nanny was fun stuff. For this marathon, Fran herself, actress Fran Drescher will host the week which Nick has dubbed Valentine Schmalentine.
The episode was framed and put together very nicely as a showcase for all the hard work Rudy, Danny, Amanda and Liz have put in during their time on the Ranch, and how much they've each grown and changed from this experience. It served as a retrospective of the season, in part, as well as an affirmation that the work this show is doing can change lives.
Look at this beautiful image from the movie. That's Johnny and Baby in the lake, practicing jumps for their big dance number. Doesn't it just scream "CHRISTMAS" to you?
Yes, this holiday season you can expect your stocking to be stuffed with a swift bite to the neck, because The CW has announced via press release that they will be airing a 'Vampire Diaries' marathon. Starting on Monday, Dec. 14 and running through Friday, Dec. 18, the network will offer back-to-back episodes of the hit freshman thriller every night from 8 to 10PM.
For those of you wondering what the hype is all about, this is the perfect time to get yourself caught up on the story of of a girl who unwisely falls for a bloodsucking harbinger of the night. Based on the popular series of young adult novels by the same name, 'Vampire Diaries' has been one of The CW's strongest performers this year, averaging nearly four million viewers.
There was a real conundrum for Mad Men last Sunday night. Did you watch the Emmys and see Mad Men win as Outstanding Drama Series or were you tuned in to watch latest episode from Season Three? Of course, most of you reading are DVR owners and could watch one live and record the other, but watching an award show after you know the winners is a little like watching sports when you know the results.
Well, if a Mad Men fan has missed any episodes this season, or if they're piled up on the DVR/Tivo queue, making you feel guilty for not keeping up, here's an out. AMC is going to show a Mad Men Season Three marathon on Sunday, September 27, starting at 10 a.m. All six episodes will air up to the premiere of the last, episode seven, at 10 p.m.
They're celebrating the 40th anniversary of the moon landing on Monday, July 20 with classic, revered movies you'd expect, like The Right Stuff and From The Earth To The Moon, but they also have the sense of humor to also show They Came From Beyond Space, a ridiculous (but entertaining), low-budget 60s sci-fi movie about aliens who come to take over Earth but can't control one scientist because he has a metal plate in his head.
Here's the full schedule for the all-day TCM marathon.
This is a really good idea. I thought John McCain was a good presidential candidate (although I didn't like how he moved further to the right to appease his party when he finally got the nomination) and could have been a good president. I just hope that when he talks about his time at war he emphasizes that it's not fun or cool like the movies make it seem. That's just part of the liberal Hollywood agenda.
I'm not sure what I'm doing on Memorial Day, but I just may have to tune into AMC just to see what the Senator says. Also, Patton is a really good flick.
At the end of the episode, they showed contestant Dane crossing the finish line after completing a 26-mile marathon in Arizona. This was supposed to be an uplifting moment, where one of the players lost weight and actually struggled to finish the marathon with his family and friends around him, cheering him on. The problem? He actually didn't finish the race himself. Along the route somewhere, a van picked him up and drove him to the finish line, and he crossed the line with his wife and kid.
Why would anyone love a patriarch who manipulates and plays dirty, in both his business and personal life? Tripp Darling does it, and portrayed by Donald Sutherland, you love him anyway. He's got a sensitivity and down-home kind of style that lets him get away with it all.
Well, good news abounds in television these days: Dexter's third season is about to begin, Bones' fourth season is officially underway and there will be a Dirty Sexy Money marathon -- the whole first season, in order -- on SOAPnet.
What gets me excited? Damages does, that's for sure. The first season of Damages was completely amazing, and I think I bemoan the fact, nearly daily, that no new episodes will air until 2009.
If you missed Damages the first time, or if you just want to relive the awesomeness that was season one, FX announced that they will be airing a Damages marathon starting Saturday, August 9 at 7:00 a.m.
Believe it or not, Futurama has been airing on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block for about five years. During that period, fans of the show have probably watched every single episode at least once, or twice, or fifteen times. Now, those same fans will get the chance to watch every single episode one more time as Adult Swim begins a Futurama marathon.
Starting tonight at 11:00 PM, and continuing until 11:30 PM on the last day of the year, there will be nothing on the schedule but Fry, Leela, Bender, and the rest of the team from Planet Express. On December 31st Adult Swim will air the show's first episode, 'Space Pilot 3000' and the last episode, 'The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings' (great episode, by the way) at 11:00 pm and 11:30 pm respectively. This is all in preparation of Futurama moving from Adult Swim to Comedy Central starting on January 1st.
