'Chuck' May Get Renewed After All, Claims Source

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 23rd 2010 2:45PM
ChuckTo quote Professor Farnsworth, "Good news, everyone!" It's looking likely that 'Chuck' will be getting another season on NBC, according to the Ausiello Files, although no official word has been sent to the press as of yet.

This is comforting news, as ratings for its current season haven't been stellar, despite the excellent pseudo-season finale, which was written before its six-episode extension was commissioned. Our own Joel Keller has an excellent interview here on TV Squad with 'Chuck' co-creator Chris Fedak about "Season 3.2."

While the previous episode had (spoiler alert!) Chuck and Sarah hooking up at the end, it does make one wonder where the series could go from that point onward. After all, that seemed to be the point of the series since the first episode. The good news is that we're going to find out when the first of six new episodes begin airing on Monday.

'Millionaire Matchmaker' Will Find New York Gold Diggers in its Fourth Season

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 16th 2010 4:02PM
Patty Stranger of 'The Millionaire Matchmaker'There's a bit of a love-hate relationship with 'The Millionaire Matchmaker' in my house. I watch because its fun to see people who have it going on financially fumble around in their attempts at finding love. It's also fun to see matchmaker Patty Stanger (who TMZ once very accurately called a "Muppet-faced yenta") scream at her peons, the millionaires who seek her help, the men and women she recruits to date them, and just about anyone who comes into her orbit.

But what always nagged me about the show is that she's essentially setting her clients up with gold diggers. Bravo has renewed the show for a fourth season, where we'll see Stranger expanding her business into New York. Which should be fun, since the Big Apple has a higher class of social strivers than the aspiring-actor/actress-slash-bartender types Patty's been finding in L.A.

ABC Family Heading Back to College for a Fourth Season of 'Greek'

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 22nd 2010 9:00AM
Greek castIt looks like ABC Family is heading for that awkward phase of high school and college-based dramas with 'Greek,' according to The Hollywood Reporter: the fourth year. This is when your freshmen are seniors and you have to figure out what to do with them, and your show, if you make it to five. Of course, you have a little bit of flexibility with college, as many students take longer than four years to graduate, and there's always post-graduate work.

But all of that's a problem for 2011. Right now, the cast and crew of 'Greek' can celebrate that with this fourth season pick-up, they will become the longest running original series currently on the air at ABC Family.

The other side of the coin is that it was only a 10-episode pick-up. The first two seasons ran 22 episodes each, while the third hit 20.

Mad Men renewed for fourth season

by Allison Waldman, posted Sep 1st 2009 3:28PM
mad_men_group_croppedThis should come as no surprise to even the most casual of TV Squad readers. Mad Men has been picked up for a fourth season, assuring that Matthew Weiner's engrossing and demanding tale of Don Draper and the people at Sterling Cooper will be played out for at least another year.

When a show like Mad Men comes along, not unlike The Sopranos in quality and pop culture appeal, the question usually isn't whether the network will stand behind it for the duration, but whether or not the creative team envisions a long run.

The Game may go into overtime on BET

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 24th 2009 1:02PM
The GameWhen The CW dropped half-hour comedies from their schedule after this past season, it left The Game out in the cold. The show had been performing respectably for the network, so it was more a victim of changing direction than poor performance.

A little late, but maybe not too late, BET is showing interest in bringing The Game back for a fourth season. The original options on the cast of the show have lapsed, but that's not to say BET couldn't negotiate anew. There's still an audience out there for the show, and I'll bet its more hardcore base felt a little betrayed by The CW's quick dismissal.

BET already airs repeats of both The Game and its parent series Girlfriends, so a continuation there fits well. The network hasn't had much luck in establishing a successful original comedy, so why not take a stab with one that's already established? From there, it'd be easy to grow into wholly unique properties.

Syfy is booking a trip back to Eureka for a fourth season

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 25th 2009 3:30AM
Eureka renewed for fourth seasonDespite a lengthy hiatus in the middle of its third season due to that pesky WGA Strike, and a shift to Friday nights, it was reported at Comic-Con that Syfy has renewed Eureka for a fourth season. And not one of those crappy 12- or 13-episode seasons we usually get on cable. This is a full 22 episodes, for which I say ... well, that would be a bit obvious, wouldn't it?

The good news is that the absence didn't hurt the show at all. It's just as compelling as it ever was. And fun. By fun, of course, I mean for us. Poor Sheriff Carter seems on the verge of a nervous breakdown half the time. Between negotiating a teenage daughter and the geniuses and their dangerously inventive concoctions, it's a wonder Eureka hasn't been blown off the map. Maybe for the series finale.

Even better, if you've yet to add it to your weekly list of stops, you can catch the latest four episodes of Eureka streaming on Hulu, along with tons of other fun clips.

'Til Death gets revived for another season

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 12th 2009 5:02PM

Til Death has been picked up for a full fourth seasonHuh. That's the only thing I can say about the recent announcement that 'Til Death will be returning to the FOX lineup next year with a full season order. Well, I could probably add in a 'Hmm' or an 'Eh?' or even a 'Whaaaaa?', but they would all convey the same emotions.

I mean, who would have thought that the network had so much confidence in the show after it placed it on "hiatus" back in October (it still has 15 episodes left in its compliment)? It's not like the network had anything of importance to fill the time slot other than repeats of House or Fringe. Maybe the network felt bad that 'Til Death is, as of this moment, the only live-action, studio audience sitcom remaining on the network. Or, maybe they have some bigger ideas in the works.

Has David Tennant signed up for fourth Doctor Who series?

by Martin Conaghan, posted Mar 23rd 2007 6:40PM
Doctor WhoThe Daily Mirror newspaper in the UK is claiming that Scottish actor David Tennant has signed a £1million deal to continue playing the lead role in Doctor Who for a fourth season.

Given that the fourth season was only confirmed in the last few days by the show's executive producer, Russell T. Davies, it doesn't seem unlikely that news of Tennant's committment (or abandonment) would soon follow (especially since it helps keep The Doctor in the headlines in the run up to the new series starting on 31 March).

A minute or two with Kristen Bell - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 20th 2007 2:15AM
Kristen BellWhen I was at the CW's "all-star" party tonight, I determined that I was far too old to be a CW watcher, because I recognized very few of the "stars" that were there. I mean, there were a few I recognized: Yanic Truesdale, Matt Czuchry, and Sean Gunn from Gilmore Girls (I called poor Sean "Tim" for some reason), the casts of Everybody Hates Chris and Supernatural, and Stephen Collins from 7th Heaven. But since neither Lauren Graham nor Alexis Bledel decided to show up, the only person I wanted to talk to was Kristen Bell of Veronica Mars.

I saw her walk in, fashionably late. I tried to casually approach her, but when I asked if she had a few seconds, she very politely told me that she wanted to settle in to the party, but would come find me when she's ready to do interviews. I only half-believed her, and, sure enough, she soon got swamped by reporters. Oh, I saw her a few times as I wandered the party (I tend to do that when I have no one to talk to), but she never approached. So, as I was on my way out, I saw her, coat slung over arm, talking to a reporter. I asked if she'd give me a few minutes, and she said yes. The transcript is after the jump. It's not Woodward and Bernstein, but she was just too damned cute to pass up:

USA renews The 4400 for a fourth season

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 23rd 2006 11:34AM
The 4400 CastEvery time we do a post about The 4400 (or even when we don't do a post about, say, a particular episode), we're always surprised at the number of fans who come out of the woodwork to passionately defend and discuss the program. But it looks like USA is fully aware of this fan base, as they've been very satisfied with the show's ratings for the last three years. Because of this, the cable net is renewing the show for a fourth season, with 13 episodes to be broadcast next summer.

When the show premiered in 2004, it received the highest ratings and biggest audience of any basic cable new-series premiere to that point, so the strong ratings it still receives shouldn't be a surprise. But, compared to other shows on the same network, like Monk, Psych, and even The Dead Zone, the show seems to get little media attention -- at least from the non sci-fi crowd. Maybe it'll finally get the attention it deserves in 2007.
