Catch a Contractor has been renewed for a second season on Spike TV.

Chrisley Knows Best was renewed by USA for a second season.

Everest Jump cancelled by Discovery channel.  In light of the tragedy that took place on Mt Everest this week, the Discovery Channel has cancelled it's May 11th special that was going to chronicle Joby Ogwyn's climb to the summit.

Hemlock Grove will be returning to Netflix in July.  Keep your eyes peeled.

Metal Hurlant on Syfy: I just started watching this show that premiered last week on Syfy.  I'm only three minutes in and I'm not holding my breath as random pieces of information are tossed at us and rubber swoards are weilded threateningly.  It would be nice to have had some kind of background about the story before we're thrown into this poorly put together show, with horrible fight coreography.  This show makes Syfy's Saturday night movies look good!  ALL OF THEM.

Marooned:  Ed Stafford will be starring in a new show on Discovery, called Marooned.  It will be premiering on April 23rd.  You might remember Stafford from his other show, Walking The Amazon.

One Night Only is an all-star tribute to the late Don Rickles, and it's set to premiere on Spike TV on May 28th, 2014.

The Americans has been renewed by FX for their third season.

The Voice: TMZ reported that Gwen Stefani will be replacing Christina Aguilar while she's pregnant!
