News: Swamp Beast, CSI, Entourage, Getting On, Million Dollar Listing, Gotham

Are you having fun trying to dodge all the spoilers being put up for the Olympics?  It's a no-win situation, considering you can stay off the internet all day but only to have the NBC National Nightly News make a huge excuse for spoiling the telecast they're leading in for.  LOL.  Other than that, I think we're learning an interesting lesson on how to keep from getting spoiled, or how to keep your expectations low and not be surprised when self-serving web and TV entities do spoil the evening telecast.  Me, except for NBC News, which is doing wonderfully for not spoiling anything, I've temporarily dumped ABC News, CBS News, and even the US Olympic Skating page.  Just to name a few. But hey, such is the bear of the tiny world we live in.





I gotta say, there's no lacking for imagination in the pursuit of mysterious creatures in the woods or swamps.  Let's make it swamps.  They're less accessible and easier to hide things in.

"In every region of America, there are legends of strange, unidentified creatures that stretch back for centuries. In the northwest, many credible people swear to have sighted Bigfoot. In Lake Champlain, locals have sworn up and down to seeing a strange, prehistoric-like creature in the water. Down south in the swamplands it’s no different, where some of the most deep-rooted and fearsome monster stories have endured. In the new original series CRYPTID: THE SWAMP BEAST, one of America’s oldest mysteries and bone-chilling legends comes to life through dramatizations, eyewitness accounts, real news reports and expert interviews. The series premieres Monday, February 24 at 10PM ET/PT."


New CSI Spin-off coming soon.


CBS is going to air an episode of CSI that focuses on cyber crimes, and if it's a big enough hit, they may use the ep as a back-door pilot for a new CSI spin-off series.


The Entourage movie started principal filming this week.


Getting On has been renewed by HBO, for a short, six-episode second season.


House's Lisa Edelstein has a new gig.

Lisa has the lead role in a Bravo series titled “GIRLFRIENDS’ GUIDE TO DIVORCE.”  It has a 13-episode count and will premiere sometime in 2015.


If you are a fan of Million Dollar Listing New York, or Married to Medicine, over on Bravo, the wait is coming to a close for new episodes.

Season three of “Million Dollar Listing New York” premieres on Wednesday, April 2 at 9p.m. ET/PT with superstar real-estate agents Fredrik Eklund, Luis D. Ortiz and Ryan Serhant.

Season two of “Married to Medicine” premieres on Sunday, April 6 at 9p.m. ET/PT with more laughter, drama, and, of course, “shade.”


As if it isn't old enough news, NBC will be premiering 'Nancy and Tonya' on Sunday, Feb 23rd.

I don't know if you saw a recent interview with Harding this week, but the reporter asked her what she was doing on February 23rd, 1994.  And with as much of a deadpan expression as she could obviously muster, asked back, "What day was that?"

Sniff, sniff...  I smell guilt.


It's easy to be a Smith.

Jada Pinkett Smith has landed a role on the Fox Batman prequel, Gotham, as the character Fish Mooney.

Not sure if you've been watching the numbers, but AMC made a bold move in airing new episodes of The Walking Dead against the Olympics.  And so far, has been the only telecast show to actually get better rating numbers in the prime demographic than the Olympics.

Both weekends so far!
