Amy Ryan, best known to TV audiences as Holly on 'The Office' and to moviegoers for her Oscar nominated performance in 'Gone Baby Gone,' is set to shrink some heads on the upcoming third season of HBO's critical darling, 'In Treatment.'

According to Deadline, Ryan will step in as Dr. Paul Weston's (series star Gabriel Byrne) psychotherapist now that Dianne Wiest, who won the 2008 Outstanding Supporting Actress Emmy for her role of GIna, has moved on.

Fox continues it's love affair with Gordon Ramsay, despite the failure of 'Cookalong Live.' This week, for example, Fox renewed 'Kitchen Nightmares' for a third season, and you know that 'Hell's Kitchen' is coming back, so Fox and Ramsay are getting along like peanut butter and jelly.

HBO booking a third season of In Treatment

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 25th 2009 9:03AM
In TreatmentIt looks like HBO is so in love with Gabriel Byrne's turn as Dr. Paul Weston that they're willing to go into uncharted territory with him. While the Isreali series BeTipul, on which it was based, only went two seasons, HBO has ordered a third round of In Treatment.

This is significant because the series remained incredibly faithful to the original series through both of its first two seasons. For this new third season, the writers will have to create all new patients, stories and drama for our beleaguered psychotherapist. Gabriel Byrne is already attached to continue his role, of course. It wouldn't be a show without him. I hope they can secure Dianne Wiest again as Paul's mentor and therapist, Gina.

Wipeout renewed for a third season

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 22nd 2009 4:30PM
WipeoutAs I've mentioned here before a few times, I'm a fan of Wipeout. It's silly and pretty much boils down to people getting hit by something and falling down into water or mud, but I'm a guy and sometimes I want to watch a show where somebody gets hit by something and falls into water or mud.

A lot of other people like the summer show too, and now ABC has announced that the show has been renewed for a third season.

Breaking Bad is renewed for a third season

Walter Breaking Bad
Yesterday was a sad day for many TV fans. Guiding Light was cancelled after 72 years of continuous broadcasting (radio and TV). Even people I know who don't watch soaps, were upset by the end of this program.

That said, it's with some real glee that I tell you that AMC has picked up Breaking Bad for a third season. It's not just that the Vince Gilligan's show is one of the best dramas on television – it might be the best! – it's the fact that renewing the program for year number three restores my faith that idiosyncratic, unusual stories like Breaking Bad can find a place to thrive and survive on the tube.

Kim D on Army WivesThe success of Army Wives has been huge for Lifetime. Currently, the second season is doing gangbuster ratings so it's no surprise the CEO Andrea Wong announced yesterday that Army Wives has been renewed for season number three.

Commencing in early 2009, there will be 18 new episodes of the military-oriented, drama set in Fort Marshall around the lives of the families of Army personnel. Currently, the tale of the "tribe" has been a grand slam, Sunday night success for the cable net, the number one cable show among women 25-54 and women 18-49, Lifetime's key demographics.

danny devitoWe know that It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia was picked up for a third season, but how did they get Danny DeVito to stick around? The video below explains everything, and if the warnings at the beginning of the video aren't enough, let me tell you upfront that the video is NOT SAFE FOR WORK and contains mature themes.

Tell you what: skip down to the bottom of this post and watch the video first, because I'm going to talk about it and I don't want to ruin any of it for you.

American Dad renewed for a fourth season

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 21st 2007 1:02PM

american dadFOX has ordered up a new batch of American Dad episodes for the 2008-09 season, according to a statement released by FOX today.

I'm happy to see the series return, though I'm not surprised it did. It has been getting great ratings in all the right demographics, and I think its quality has improved considerably throughout this last season. When it began, it seemed a bit too much like Family Guy (both series were created by Seth MacFarlane), but over time I think American Dad has slowly developed a voice all its own, with more emphasis on plot rather than the "anything goes" cartoon style of Family Guy. It's easy to compare the two shows because the character designs are similar, but I think that's where the similarities end.

Mindfreak returns June 5

by Adam Finley, posted May 11th 2007 1:03PM

mindfreakI used to watch Criss Angel Mindfreak on A&E quite a bit. I've always liked Angel more than David Blaine because Angel would perform actual illusions and tricks (he calls them "demonstrations") rather than the pointless publicity stunts that have kept Blaine in the public eye.

I must admit though, as the second season wore on, I found myself less and less impressed. I don't, however, think that's Angel's fault. If anything, his tricks have become more intense and more imaginative, but after awhile, magic in general stops impressing me. Even if he does something truly astonishing, I always know it's a trick. If someone comes up to me on the street and performs a card trick and I have no idea how they did it, I might think, 'huh, that's neat,' but the novelty will wear off in a few minutes.

I love Battlestar, stop talking about Battlestar

battlestar galacticaRecently I decided to see what all this Battlestar Galactica noise was about and Netflixed the first couple seasons. As of this writing I'm about midway through the second season and I have to say that yes, it is as good as people say. I don't mean it's good by the sometimes lower standards of other sci-fi fare, I mean it's just a good television program period. Consider me frakking converted.

Ask TV Squad: When will Deadliest Catch return?

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 17th 2007 1:03PM

deadliest catchFaithful TV Squad reader Gordon Werner has a question, so everyone listen up:

"Will Discovery Channel be airing another season of Deadliest Catch this year?"

The answer, dear Mr. Werner, is "yes." In fact, the third season is currently being filmed and will kick off on April 3, 2007. Make sure you tattoo that information on your body like that guy in Memento, it's a great way to remember things. That's why I have "buy eggs and milk" inked on my inner thigh right now.

Deadliest Catch is a documentary series that began in 2005. It follows six fishing vessels as they fish for crab in the Bering Sea and face serious injury or death due to the rough conditions. The crew not only consists of fisherman who have been on several expeditions, but also "greenhorns" who are experiencing the job for the first time.

Gervais hits up Hollywood's A-List for Extras

by Julia Ward, posted Dec 12th 2006 7:22PM
Ricky GervaisA third season of Ricky Gervais' Extras is in the works. This is good news for Gervais fans as the show was rumored to be getting a self-imposed axe after season two a la The Office. But, Gervais is back, and he's got a dilly of guest-star wish list.

For season three, he's looking to snag Meryl Streep, Bruce Willis, Dick van Dyke, Mickey Rooney and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Considering that the show has managed to score Ben Stiller, Kate Winslet, Samuel L. Jackson, David Bowie, Orlando Bloom and David Bowie in the past, Gervais shouldn't have any trouble. My personal fave was the episode with Daniel Radcliffe and Diana Rigg. Seeing Harry Potter send a "johnny" flying into Dame Rigg's hair is worth the price of premium cable. And, as far as celebrities taking themselves down a peg, going on Gervais' Extras seems a far better tactic than hosting SNL or waiting around to screw-up and then make a public apology on The Tonight Show. At least with Gervais, you know that you'll actually come off as funny.

30 Days gets third season

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 12th 2006 4:35PM
Morgan SpurlockWho knew that eating your body weight in McDonald's could lead to a lasting career? Morgan Spurlock is finding out, as the director/guinea pig from the 2004 documentary Super Size Me is carving out a nice little resume for himself as a producer and director. And his efforts are paying off: Cynopsis is reporting that FX is picking up his documentary series 30 Days for a third season.

For the uninitiated, 30 Days examines controversial issues by following a subject -- someone other than Spurlock, even though he's been the subject in an episode or two -- as he or she experiences something that touches on that issue. Usually, the environment the subject is in is completely foreign to them and, in some cases, runs opposite to their ideology or beliefs.

Bravo orders up more D-List

by Julia Ward, posted Nov 29th 2006 6:01PM
Kathy GriffinKathy Griffin's Emmy-nominated My Life on the D-List has been picked up for a third season by Bravo. The hour-long show will be back in 2007 with six new episodes.

I caught this show way too much last season. There's something simultaneously appealing and annoying about Kathy G. I can't quite put my finger on it. (Her on-again, off-again husband probably feels the same way.) The fact that she's willing to lay bare her naked desire for fame and recognition is admirable in its own way - as is the fact that she's self-reflective enough to recognize the gloss and BS that comes with the world she's aspiring to play a part in. Her celebrity dish is priceless and kinda sad at the same time. She represents what I feel like whenever I read Perez Hilton except in the body of a mini-drag queen.
