Al Pacino IS Phil Spector!

This could actually be good, but that doesn't stop me from laughing, every time I look at Pacino in this movie.  But really, he's just being accurate.

Didn't NBC learn their lesson with the whole Conan/Leno thing?

Now they want to give Fallon the Tonight Show and get Howard Stern in Fallon's time slot.

NOOOOOO! No more Clone Wars.

Or at least SOME Clone Wars, but it's "Bonus Content" that won't be delivered via Cartoon Network.

Oh great. I finally find a show I might actually like and it gets cancelled.   :'(  Cartoon Network wouldn't know good shows if it jumped out in front of them, smacked them in the face, and started singing "Viva Las Vegas"!

Not sure if this one was Cartoon Network's fault. The speculation is that since Disney owns Star Wars, and Disney has their own network(s) for cartoons, they might not want to give those ratings to Cartoon Network anymore. Something similar happened with Transformers: Animated when Hasbro got their own TV network...

Yeah, something similar happened recently when an acclaimed Darkwing Duck comic suddenly ended a while after Disney bought Marvel and started publishing through them.  It wasn't the publisher, it was the company that owned the characters.

Who's Line is being revived.

From the sounds of it Mochrie, Stiles, and Brady will all be returning as the regulars, with guest comics as the fourth. The new host will be Aisha Tyler, mostly known for playing Lana on Archer. Airing this summer on CW.

Cool. Was never a big drew Carey fan but I used to love Who's Line.  Here's hoping Donal Glover shows up in an episode.

That Bates Motel looks like a good show, and it stars that super cute little Freddie Highmore, almost grown up.

Probably catch it on DVD.

Second seasons of Continuum (April 21), and Perception ('Summer') are confirmed.  [Sorry, lost the links I found that info in long before I located this thread via posts in the 'Completely Random Thoughts' thread.]

This may not be the place for this, but since I doubt there's enough people to start a thread specifically for this show, I'll add it here since I mentioned it above:  [spoiled because I just discuss the show above that doesn't have its own thread]
