Ugh, she’s the best. I’m so in love with her. She’s so inspiring. She’s been on that show for so many years and she handles herself so gracefully on it. She’s just, she’s cool to be around. She’s funny, easy and she had good insight into some of the more difficult moments I had. I love an alpha female and she is like the ultimate.
“Veronica Mars” will always have a special place in my heart. Now that it’s back on TV (reruns on SOAPnet), you should really be watching. Why? I’ve outlined some very good reasons for new viewers and previous “Mars” devotees to tune in. Viva “Veronica Mars”!
“Season 3 is currently filming with Maggie and the rest of the cast. We don’t comment on future storylines, but there’s no truth in the story that Maggie is leaving the show.”—A Masterpiece rep regarding Maggie Smith leaving “Downton Abbey.”
Here's a general question you might be able to answer. Why have several of the networks waited so long to announce renewals of existing shows? It's so odd to have heard so little about renewals of shows before now in the broadcast season. Only CBS and a few shows here & there have learned their fate (either way). Any inside industry insight you can share/theorize about why that is? (I'm specifically wondering about Castle BTW, which seems like a lock for renewal.)
Actually, early renewals and cancellations don’t happen that frequently. Most shows don’t know their fates until closer to Upfronts. The lack of news could also be attributed to the fact that there are so many long-running shows still kicking around. They’ve got the name factor going for them, but aren’t pulling in the numbers they used to. Also, looking at each network’s development slate could give you a good better idea at what each network is working with. For example, CBS had very few new shows in development when compared to the other major networks. And yes, “Castle” will most likely be back.
Any news on the renewal prospects of 'Fringe' or lack there of?
It’s still up in the air.
John Noble recently told Zap2It: “There are a lot of warm and fuzzy feelings out there, between us and FOX,” Noble said. “I know that the Fox executives love the show. It’s just a matter of business, and it’s very close, because we’re an expensive show.”
A Marilyn Monroe reality show. You read that right.
"We are thrilled to give the winner of ‘Finding Marilyn’ the opportunity to emulate Marilyn Monroe’s iconic journey to stardom," Nick Woodhouse, CMO of the estate of Marilyn Monroe, said in a statement.
