That's ballsy from a network that seems pretty notorious for cancelling shows that receive good critical acclaim  pretty easily.  Who knows if Harmon can keep his ego in check to write a consistent additional 2-3 seasons let alone 5-7.

I mean, it's weird all around, right? Like you say Harmon and Roiland seem to have trouble working together, they take forever to make new episodes...I guess it's just making a ton of money? And maybe some of the delays were negotiating stalls?

Somehow I doubt they make 70 more episodes but I think this means we'll get at least a few more which I might not have said was even money last week.

Harmon was on Smodcast recently and said that the delay has been due to renegotiating their original contracts, he indicated that it was going well and fans could expect plenty more.

If there are any arrested Development fans out there I highly recommend watching the remix of season 4 that was just released on Netflix. Completely changes the dynamic of the show. Feels like it belongs with the first 3 seasons now.

Well looks like Brooklyn Nine-Nine will stay alive for another season over at NBC. Michael Schur must have a good relationship with them since his other shows were all there too.

looks like our social media campaign to blitz them with messages about how much we love it worked. Even Benecio Del Toro and Mark Hamill got into it for us :)

B-9-9 lives!

and today, CBS renewed my favourite show, Criminal Minds too.


It's a good day!

go Jets!

So I guess ABC has figured out that it's maybe not such a hot idea to get into bed with nutjobs, no matter how many people tune in.

I have no doubt that the Murdochs would happily stoop that low but with Fox about to be owned by Comcast or Disney that may be radioactive.

Because Phoebe Waller-Bridge's name is starting to get out there (L3-37, in Solo), I've started up Fleabag and Killing Eve and they are both wonderfully dark maybe-comedies.

I thought both were terrific. Killing Eve is probably going to do big awards business(and rightfully so) but I thought Fleabag was one of the genuinely funniest shows I'd seen in a while.

The fact that they picked up Last Man Standing is what made me think it, but yeah Allen isn't as toxic as Rosanne is I guess (at least not publicly).

Given the response from fellow cast members, especially Gilbert, I think the show is dead.

It's not like they're just now finding out she's a huge racist, but yeah I guess that might makes things a little tough.
