'Jeopardy!' and 'Wheel' Extended Through 2014 -- It Should Be Longer

by Danny Gallagher, posted Apr 9th 2010 7:31PM
Earlier this week, both 'Jeopardy!' and 'Wheel of Fortune' stay on the air through 2014 thanks to a new contract agreement between ABC and CBS Television Distribution. It also keeps hosts Alex Trebek and Pat Sajak in their respective chairs through the same time period.

Ho-hum, I know. Most test patterns have had shorter runs on TV than 'Jeopardy!' and 'Wheel.' How is that news?

It just got me thinking: what would the world of TV and really the world itself be like without daily doses of America's favorite quiz show and America's favorite wheel spinning and letter guessing show?

A&E Wants More Steven Seagal's 'Lawman'

Are your favorite TV police officers not squinting enough? Then tune that TV on over to A&E!

A&E has renewed their popular reality series (there's two phrases I thought I would never use in the same sentence: "A&E" and "popular reality series") 'Steven Seagal: Lawman' for another season.

The network has submitted a 16-episode order for the show's new season, just three more than the first season. The network has also been more than pleased with its 2.1 million average reviewer rating, more than half of which is from the coveted 18 to 34 year old demographic. Just imagine. If the show gets popular enough, it might become an actual movie. Finally! Seagal will have a chance to do some real acting.

CW Renews 'Vampire Diaries,' 'Gossip Girl,' '90210,''Supernatural' and 'Top Model'

The CWEarlier today I posted about 'Supernatural' possibly being picked up for a sixth season. Well, you can take the 'possibly' out of that because it's definite now: the show will be coming back this fall, along with four other shows. The four shows that will join 'Supernatural' on The CW schedule are 'Vampire Diaries,' 'Gossip Girl,' 'America's Next Top Model' and '90210.' None of those really surprise me, though if '90210' had been canceled I wouldn't have fallen off of my sofa.

I know, I know, 'Smallville' fans are saying "what about 'Smallville?!?' and 'Life Unexpected' fans are saying the exact same thing about that show. Just because the network hasn't said that those shows are coming back doesn't mean that they've been canceled. Though I guess it does mean that they're on the fence about them, which is understandable in the case of 'Smallville,' which has already been around for several seasons.

One show renewed by ABC Family, one show canceled by ABC Family

Ruby & The RockitsAll of you David Cassidy fans* out there are out of luck.

ABC has canceled his new show Ruby & The Rockits. It seems like the show just started ... well, that's because that's pretty much true. The show will be axed after only one season.

Anyone who wants to see the show renewed for a second season will have to start a campaign like the nut campaign that saved Jericho for another season. I don't watch the show, so I'm not sure what you could mail to ABC Family to get their attention. Maybe rubies? Rockets?

A complete guide to what's in and out on the networks

60 MinutesJust in time for the May upfronts (that time of year when all of the networks - ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and The CW - unveil their lineups for the fall), The Futon Critic has a complete guide to what shows have been renewed and what shows have been canceled for the 2007-08 season.

Most of the news isn't that surprising. We already know that shows like The Black Donnellys and Six Degrees and King of Queens are ending, and that shows like Lost, Bones, and 30 Rock have been renewed. However, I wasn't aware that Men in Trees had already been renewed, and isn't it a little odd to put 60 Minutes in the "Fate To Be Determined" category? I would assume it's definitely renewed.

There's also a very handy guide to all of the pilots that are currently in development (at the top), so you can see what shows just might replace your favorites.
