-Jeffrey Dean Morgan has been cast for the evil role of Negan in 'The Walking Dead.' Wow... I like him and I've seen him in both good and evil modes. Be prepared to be truly pissed off at this character in TWD.  Arg.


FX has given 'American Horror Story' an order for a 6th season.  Yes, they renewed AMS.

This season's cast is fascinating, including Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, ChloĆ« Sevigny, Denis O’Hare, Cheyenne Jackson, Evan Peters and Finn Wittrock.

Wow, I did not realize that AMS received 71 Emmy Award nominations and 13 Emmy Award wins during the first four seasons.


BTW, speaking of renewed, NBC renewed ‘Chicago Fire’ & ‘Chicago P.D.’


NBC renewed 'Blindspot' for a second season also!  I hope they can keep the mystery about her tatooes a nice intrigue factor without getting too over the top about it. That could get weary. They have a fine line to balance with this one.


Have you been watching 'Supergirl?' And are you as annoyed at her googly-eyed, no smarter than a teenager attitude about everything yet? I'm finding it hard to get past, but I would like to see if they evolve her beyond this girlie-teen mode and actually make her grow up and act like an adult someday.

Be it as it may, I'm seeing noise around the web that folks are frustrated that we aren't really seeing Superman in the show. Even when he shows up.

Every 'appearance' of Superman is in shadowy form, referenced continuously, or in text messages. I mean seriously, let's give a hero girl a show and then let's watch her get continuously compared to her male counterpart. How disrespectful is that?

They make Cat Grant out to be a raging b* but make James Olsen look pretty suave. So is this some kind of anti-feminist show, where we see both ends of the spectrum about how to portray women? And who thinks this bullshit is showing Kara's vulnerable side, has had way too much punch.

As one commentor put it on another site, this feels like Power Rangers meets 'You Go Girl!'

And if you are surprised that we have actually not seen the character of Superman, what cave have you been living in?

All joking aside, the TV and movie worlds are two different worlds altogether. Look at 'The Flash.' The TV version is going like gangbusters, but they cast a different person for the character in the movies because they don't want any confusion between the two 'products.'

And remember when we never saw 'the suit' on Clark Kent in 'Smallville,' because it would dilute the audience focus from the movies? Because, you know, we're not smart enough or something like that?  Meh. Whatever, right?

'Supergirl' ratings, if you believe the hyped up headlines, are starting to suck.  Or as they are saying, 'Supergirl' ratings are almost half that of the premiere!

OMG, did I not predict this? (The answer is yes. That was a rhetorical question.)

The ratings kicked ass in the premiere and like I've said before, all TV shows have ratings decline from the premiere on into the mid-season finales or season finales.

But as Kara continues to need help from every living being on Earth, she is starting to dissuade TV fans...  where CBS pulled into 3rd for the night with 'Supergirl.'

Then again, all shows are showing dips in ratings. But they're experiencing single digit dips while Supergirl is seeing double digits.

On the bright side, this show should have been on the CW and these numbers would have given that network a huge boost and been a solid performer. But genre fans don't number high enough to make ratings strides in the national affiliate ratings. Plus, despite its supposed randomness, Nielsen Families have always seemed to be unfond of this genre, period.
