NBC Unveils Summer 2011 Schedule

by Chris Harnick, posted Mar 21st 2011 4:45PM
America's Got TalentCouples with hilarious problems take note: NBC is bringing 'The Marriage Ref' back! The Jerry Seinfeld–produced panel discussion series, 'America's Got Talent' and several other new game shows and reality programs round out NBC's summer programming slate.

Joining 'America's Got Talent' and 'The Marriage Ref' are new reality show 'Love in the Wild,' singing competition 'The Voice,' new episodes of 'Law & Order: LA,' game shows 'Still Standing' and 'It's Worth What?' and the basic cable premiere of the final season of 'Friday Night Lights.'

"We want to make it clear that NBC considers the summer as an important part of its overall season and will continue to offer a varied lineup of original programs," Bob Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, said. "Our viewers will have plenty of options with new series such as 'It's Worth What?' and 'Love in the Wild' as well as continuing shows such as 'The Voice' plus returning favorites like 'America's Got Talent.' We even have scripted series such as 'Friday Night Lights,' and episodes of two separate 'Law and Order' franchises as we build momentum toward the fall season."

Check out the premiere dates and more info about the new programs below.

Carrie Prejean walks off Larry King Live ... wait, she doesn't!

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 12th 2009 1:03PM
Miss California USA, Carrie Prejean, has a new book out, and she was on Larry King Live last night to promote it. Larry asked her about the lawsuit she filed against the pageant, but she didn't want to talk about that and even told Larry he was being "inappropriate." She then talks to someone off-camera and it looks like she's about to walk off the set but then changes her mind (or her handlers changed it for her). She came back after the commercial and said she didn't want questions from viewers.

In her defense, the settlement was private, and that probably includes the reason why it was settled, not just the amount. But she just looks goofy taking off her mic and telling Larry that she can't hear him (even though she can clearly hear him because she answers him). The moral: either answer the questions or just leave the show.

NBC's new show: man loses job and girlfriend, gains a soundtrack

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 7th 2009 5:01PM
NBC logoHey, if CBS can have a Game Show In My Head, NBC can have music.

The network has given the go-ahead to a new show from All Of Us/Baby Bob writer Jared Bush titled Soundtrack. It's about a guy who loses his job and his girlfriend and then starts to hear the same song in his head over and over and over again. The song doesn't go away until he finds what meaning it has in his life. Then the next episode has him hearing another song and he'll have to find out what that meaning is too.

The long list of shows that may not return in the fall

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 10th 2006 9:28AM
upfronts criminal intentThe upfronts are right around the corner, where network executives let advertisers know what shows will be making the cut for next fall. Early word from MediaLife is that NBC has the longest list of shows might not be returning. Probably the most surprising show on the list is Law and Order: Criminal Intent. With the rotating cast and drooping ratings, media watchers say this one is likely on the chopping block (the other two are safe, though). Things aren't looking good for Commander in Chief, either. And, of course, we already knew that there is a good chance Scrubs will be... scrubbed (but possibly get new life on ABC).

Here are the shows (on all networks) that media buyers think are in danger of cancellation:

Still Standing and Yes, Dear are (probably) canceled

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 8th 2006 5:11PM
still standing yes dear canceledStill Standing and Yes, Dear (aka two of The Five: Shows that give lazy overweight men hope) won't return for another season. The cancelation of Yes, Dear comes as no surprise, as CBS only ordered half a season and star Anthony Clark recently announced that he'll be the new host of the next edition of NBC's Last Comic Standing (Yeah! No Jay Mohr!). It lasted six seasons and is already in syndication.

The fourth and, most likely, final season of Still Standing comes to an end tonight in two half-hour episodes on CBS, according to USA Today. While CBS hasn't officially canceled the sitcom, which was the 93rd-ranked show this season, the producers and writers had no illusions that they probably wouldn't return, so they handled the season finale as if it were the final episode for the series. Since the show lasted four seasons, with 88 episodes, it qualifies for syndication.

What's going on with Still Standing tonight?

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 2nd 2005 8:15PM

Still StandingWhat the heck is going on with Still Standing on CBS right now? The match up of the sound with the mouth movement of the actors is off by a split second. It's like watching a Godzilla movie, only with a laugh track and more jokes about beer.

Very strange.

Still Standing: Still Getting Married and Still Exchanging

by Bob Sassone, posted May 23rd 2005 9:04PM
Still StandingI'm really glad they kept around the character of Perry (James Patrick Stuart), the guy with the fake accent who's in a Foghat cover band. It really looked like they were going to have Linda suddenly realize (in typical sitcom fashion) that she didn't really love him and would listen to Judy and call off the wedding. But they threw a curveball and had Perry convince Judy that he really loved her. So there was no season-ending cliffhanger with her either calling off the wedding or maybe having a freeze-framed on her "I do." But it wouldn't have been a season-ender anyway, since it was the first of two season-ending episodes, and the real last episode of the season was on after.

Still Standing: Still Mother's Day

by Bob Sassone, posted May 2nd 2005 8:39PM
Still StandingNot to sound cruel, but Sally Struthers looks like she's been eating all the food that should be going to those kids overseas. OK, I'm sorry about that. I guess it's just a shock to see her so changed from her All in the Family days. On Still Standing she plays Bill's mom, and Bill and Judy are always trying to get away from her, to not spend time with her, to pawn her off on someone else because they don't want to be around her. Which I've never understood. Sure, she's a little clingy and know how to guilt people, but she seems like a pretty great mom to me, and a really nice person. Here, Judy and the other females in the family plan their annual tea at the Palm Court and Bill suggests that his mom go along as well. To make a long story short, Judy accidentally stabs her and she ends up at the hospital. Oh, she then accidentally pushes her down the stairs. Funny line: "Ohhhh, high tea at the Palm Court! That's really fancy. I'll have to take my Beano."

Still Standing: Still Holding

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 18th 2005 8:40PM
Still StandingI think that Still Standing - and this is a big statement, I know - is the most underrated sitcom on television right now. For some reason people assume that it's just another lame sitcom and they quickly lump it into the Listen Up/Yes, Dear category. It's actually quite funny, with some terrific one-liners and a great cast. Tonight was Typical Wacky Sitcom Chaos, as a teddy bear with pot inside is accidentally given to a doctor who is heading a toy drive. Sure, we've seen it before, but there are so many cutting lines and witty asides going back and forth that we realize that plot is the least unimportant of aspect of storytelling. Bill and Judy try to explain to daughter Lauren that they smoked pot in high school, and Lauren said she already knew that because Bill still wears a t-shirt that says "Doobie University Rolling Team." And I laughed out loud when they finally got into the kid's room to look for the bear with a drug-sniffing dog (it's a long story), only to discover about 400 other bears on the shelves, and the little girl learns a new word, which she starts to sing over and over: "bong, bong, bong, bong, bong, bong, bong!" The B-plot has Brian helping Linda sell her old car she's named Mr. Puff-n-Chug. I guess there was a "puffing" theme to tonight's episode.
