BET Ready to Play 'The Game'

by Scott Harris, posted Apr 5th 2010 11:40AM
Tia MowryBetween the Masters, Major League Baseball's opening day and March Madness, it seems that there's a big game popping up every day on networks like ESPN and CBS. Now, though, one of the biggest games around is about to appear courtesy of a less likely source: BET.

That's because, according to the Hollywood Reporter, the cable network is expected to announce that it has finalized a deal to bring back the late, lamented CW comedy 'The Game,' which was a spinoff from the beloved hit 'Girlfriends.'

That series of course, ran for eight seasons, but unfortunately 'The Game' wasn't as successful, thanks in large part to the network's decision to move away from half-hour comedies like 'The Game' in favor of hour-long shows. While series creator Mara Brock Akil did attempt to save the series by converting it to a full-hour format, the move wasn't enough to rescue the 'The Game,' which was instead canceled after three seasons.

New TV on DVD releases this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 18th 2010 6:01PM
DamagesHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Defying Gravity is one of those shows where I said "oh, I have to start watching that," and then it was gone from ABC. I guess there have been several shows like that in recent years. I can say the same thing about Damages and Durham County, but at least those two shows are still around.

Guess I'm interested in shows that begin with the letter D this week.

  • 21 Jump Street - Season 1
  • Cranford: Return to Cranford and The Collection (Cranford/Return to Cranford)
  • Dallas - Season 12
  • Damages - Season 2
  • Defying Gravity - Complete Series
  • Durham County - Season 1

Legend of the SeekerHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

I don't know if Legend of the Seeker could be considered a guilty pleasure or not. I mean, if you like something, why does it have to be a "guilty" pleasure? Having said that, I think a lot of people would consider this show something they're not willing to admit they like. But I'll admit it: I like it. It's a fun show.

Holiday TV Comedy Collection is a mix of Christmas episodes from various shows, including The Office, 30 Rock, Psych, Monk, and House.

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.

Make Room For DaddyHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Let's do something different this week. Which of these DVDs do you plan on buying? Let us know in the comments section.

I can't imagine buying any of these shows. The only two I might be interested in are Just Shoot Me (though I think it's one of those shows I'm happy just to see in reruns and not actually own) and Make Room For Daddy. But I would buy that just because it's a classic show, not because it's one of my favorites. It's one of those classic shows that I just never got into, unlike I Love Lucy or The Dick Van Dyke Show or The Honeymooners.

  • Breaking Bad - Season 1
  • Canterbury's Law - Complete Series
  • Cities of the Underground - Season 2
  • Dirty Jobs - Collection 4
  • Futurama - Into the Wild Blue Yonder
  • Girlfriends - Season 6
  • Just Shoot Me - Season 3
  • The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice
  • Make Room For Daddy - Season 6, Vol. 1
  • The Mighty B - Vol. 1
  • My Wife and Kids - Season 1
  • Oliver Twist - Miniseries
  • The Red Green Show - 2001 Season
  • Spider-Man - The Vulture

The Donna Reed ShowHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Wow, if you bought all of the complete series sets being released this week you'd have a great start for your TV DVD collection: NewsRadio, The Flintstones, The 4400, Sanford and Son, and several others. The NewsRadio set doesn't have anything that wasn't in the individual sets, but it's a great buy if you don't have all of the seasons. The Mystery Science Theater 3000 set (the one with the collectible Crow and lobby cards) might already be sold out, so I'd check on that. I used to watch Zoom back in the 70s, though I can't imagine buying the DVD set.

I don't think I've ever seen The Doris Day Show, but it looks like something I might have to have.

  • The 4400 - Complete Series
  • Cathouse - Complete Series
  • Dark Shadows - Vol. 6: Episodes 179-209
  • The Donna Reed Show - Season 1

The CW announces when its shows will return

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 15th 2008 2:20PM
The CW logoThe CW decided to hop on the bandwagon and send out a list of when its veteran shows are scheduled to return, and how many episodes each show will have left. The list is after the jump.

The "big" return week will begin on April 21, with the return of Gossip Girl, Reaper and Supernatural. The interesting part of this announcement is that the network was beginning to air new episodes of some of their shows; the eps were shot before the strike and it looked like the network wasn't going to hold them back and air them after the walkout was over. Now, it looks like they are. So, those of you who were starting to get used to the idea of new Smallville and Supernatural episodes, for instance, are going to have to watch some more reruns for a while.

By the way, if you're wondering where the network's longest-running show, Girlfriends, is on this list, the network decided to cancel it.

The ladies love Fred Thompson

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 26th 2007 4:02PM

fred thompsonLaw & Order actor and former senator Fred Thompson hasn't officially announced he's running for president, but based on opinion polls, people seem to like him.

The man who played D.A. Arthur Branch on the Law and Order franchise is also being endorsed by his ex-wife and former girlfriends.

Lorrie Morgan, a country music singer whom Fred dated, said, "women love a soft place to lay and a strong pair of hands to hold us."

First of all, I think it's great that Freddy Fred knows how to treat a lady. I'm someone who could use a few lessons in treating women right, since the last two I dated got loose from their chains, ran into the road, and were both hit by a garbage truck. Also, you have to feed them every day, which is sometimes easy to forget.
