It’s fall (sorry summer lovers, but Sept. 1 sorta tears it. Not summer anymore) and that’s the time we usually do our big “What are the networks THINKING!?” posts. Astute readers will recall that last year, we didn’t do this because Jess and I were in Europe. And that is a shame, because there were many terrible shows that came and went that we didn’t even get a chance to make fun of properly.
This year, we are totally going to do it. You just have to be a little patient!
To tide you over, how about some good news for new shows that we are anticipating?
First of all, Conan O’Brien has named his new show that will air on TBS starting on Nov. 8. Of this year.
You heard it here… well, second or third probably. Whatever. CONAW!
I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that THIS is the show I’m most excited for this fall. I really hope this works out for everyone involved. Conan is the best and he deserves a little good TV Karma after the cluster fuck that was this year.
Second, The Walking Dead is coming to AMC. It’s coming to get us, Barbara!
AMC has a pretty fantastic track record (Witness how Mad Men and Breaking Bad won ALLL the Emmys Sunday) as taste makers, so I’m pretty darn excited for this show, that is based on a graphic novel of the same name. Emphasis on the graphic. AMC seems confident about it. So much so that they’ve decided to pick up the series for a second season before airing a single episode. It premieres on AMC Oct. 31. Savvy. Halloween is an opportune time to air a show about a zombie outbreak.
Yeehaw! That is good news all around!
Let’s go have some coffee and tackle our day that starts at noon because we stay up late! (That’s just me? OK. I’ll go do that. You guys have a good day!)
