The longer the networks reported on the Boston manhunt on Friday afternoon, the less we knew about what was actually going on. Before the bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was finally caught that night, the confusion around the case had already raised some troubling questions about the power of TV news in general.
At a time when social media offers quicker updates than the anchors, most people only turn to the networks when they need a singular, authoritative voice — one that waits to report the news until it’s been triple-confirmed, sorting out the rumors from the facts. But as police closed in on Dzhokhar, the anchors seemed just as baffled as the people watching. You got the feeling that watching TV was no better than following ordinary people on Twitter or Reddit. That was scary. But what was even scarier was the creeping sense that you might be better off following no one, since nobody (professional or amateur) seemed to know anything. It was just a lot of frustrated people, mechanically delivering details they fully expected to eventually contradict.
The reality show that had the tough job of replacing the low-rated Smash on Tuesdays has been yanked from NBC’s schedule.
NBC announced today that it’s drop-kicking the dating show after three airings and moving Grimm to Tuesdays at 10 beginning April 30, where it will stay through May 21.
Dateline will replace Grimm at 9 p.m. Fridays, beginning April 26. NBC says it hasn’t decided when or whether to air the remaining episodes of Ready For Love.
Hosted by Bill and Giuliana Rancic, Ready for Love only averaged under 3.5 million viewers. The show was executive produced by Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives) and invited eligible women to “find out how easy it can be to find true love.”
There was a chance that two fewer Emmys would be handed out during the telecast this year — until now.
On Thursday, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ Board of Governors reversed its decision to consolidate the Outstanding Lead and Supporting categories for actors and actresses in movies and miniseries. Last year, the board – in hopes of streamlining the annual telecast and making it, well, less boring — voted to reduce the total number of categories by eliminating two of the telefilm actor categories.
But production of movies and miniseries has since increased (hi, The Bible!) so the board reversed its decision. So this year, there will be four categories for Outstanding Lead Actor and Actress, and Supporting Actor and Actresses.
Reducing the number of categories during the three-hour telecast has long been the goal of the Big Four networks, which pay for the privilege of broadcasting the kudofest — even though many of the golden statues go to premium and basic cable recipients each year. The miniseries categories, in particular, have been dominated by cable actors.
The entry deadline for the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards is Friday, May 3rd. Nominations will be announced on July 18 for the telecast that’ll air on CBS Sept. 22.
Perhaps it’s when the young girl in a pristine white dress saws off her own devilish tail. Or maybe it’s when a pair of eyeballs plop onto the ground like bloody Ping-Pong balls during a human-to-werewolf evolution. Or even when a character mutters, “She looks like a walrus with a UTI.” Chances are, at some point during Netflix’s 13-episode series about mothers and sons, vampires and werewolves, murder and medicine, sex and…more sex, you’ll think to yourself: Is this campy good or campy bad?
In the April 25 episode of The Vampire Diaries, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) heads to New Orleans to investigate the threat of witches mobilizing against him. What he finds, as you see in the extended promo below, is his former protegé Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) ruling the Big Easy and having everything Klaus has ever wanted: power, loyalty, family, and slow-motion walks through Lafayette Cemetery No. 1. What would The Originals be about if this backdoor pilot turns into a series on The CW’s fall schedule? Klaus sums it up: “I want to be king.”

DirecTV is doubling down on scripted television: The satellite service provider announced today that it has ordered 10 episodes of Full Circle from filmmaker and playwright Neil LaBute, making his TV debut.

It continues: “Full Circle is a modern day La Ronde meets My Dinner with Andre as it explores the nature of human contact and true togetherness in our current technology-driven world.”
LaBute will serve as writer and co-exec producer on the series. Nick Hamm, the producer/director behind DirecTV’s Rogue, will exec-produce/direct Full Circle.
“In dissecting how closely connected we all are, Full Circle will take viewers on a journey that will traverse the full range of human emotion. I know the series will flourish under the stewardship of Neil and Nick Hamm,” said DirecTV Senior VP Chris Long.
