NBC Rumored To Move Constantine To SyFy

Posted by Bob Muir on Feb 10, 2015 in Comic Books, Television


Superhero or superhero-esque stories are very popular right now, and in the last two years, we’ve seen a bunch of shows start airing on network TV, of all things. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, and Gotham may not be pulling in the usual network TV ratings, but they’re succeeding in their intended demographic and keeping pace with the CW’s Arrow and Flash. But NBC’s Constantine is not doing so hot, partially because of what they’re allowed to get away with on network TV, and partially because Friday night is a horrible night for new TV. As the future of the show is uncertain, a rumor has surfaced that NBC may move it to another one of its networks: SyFy. Read more…

NBC Announces Heroes Reborn

Posted by Ben Huber on Feb 24, 2014 in Television


Yup, the canceled TV show Heroes is coming back to NBC as a new short 13 episode series called Heroes Reborn. I imagine with the explosion of super hero-themed movies and TV shows, they want back in on the action. They didn’t release anything regarding the plot or other details. They did mention that a web series will start prior to the debut, to introduce new characters. They also mentioned that previous characters could return as well, but didn’t specify beyond that. I wonder if this’ll actually do well, or flop completely. The series will start in 2015. Read more…

Still Convinced NBC is Insane

Posted by Tim Sheehy on May 16, 2012 in Television

Community Curriculum Unavailable Screen

It’s true, NBC’s Community has been picked up for a fourth season. I suppose I should just be happy the show is even coming back, especially considering NBC’s penchant for cancelling their programming at the drop of a hat, but there’s something bittersweet about the whole thing. First there’s the reduced order of thirteen episodes. While it shares that fate with 30 Rock‘s final season, both The Office and Parks & Recreation will be receiving 22 episodes this fall. This either implies the show will also be coming to an end, or that a mid-season pickup will be contingent on it doing well — which brings us to the next problem. NBC has decided to move Community to Friday nights — traditionally known as “the place television shows go to die.”

Community Animated Short, Abed’s Master Key

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Mar 8, 2012 in Animation, Television

Animated shorts never seem to be as good as the actual shows they’re based off, but with Community making its return to NBC later this month, something’s better than nothing. In the first installment of Community: Abed’s Master Key we catch up with the study group as they discover their study room tables missing due to budget cuts. Dean Pelton makes Abed his unpaid intern/assistant, handing him a key — as to what the key actually does, we’ll just have to wait and see. Only the first part has been released so far, but future installments will be available via Hulu. Community returns from its hiatus March 15th, 8PM Eastern/Pacific on NBC.

Community Set to Return Mid-March

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Feb 22, 2012 in Television

NBC's Community D&D episode

Fans of NBC’s Community can finally exhale, the show is set to return to its 8PM slot starting Thursday, March 15th. I know many of you were terrified when the show was suddenly placed on hiatus earlier this year, myself included, but thankfully we won’t have to worry about its cancellation any time soon. NBC is apparently shaking up its line up with 30 Rock moving to 8:30, and Parks & Recreation going on a hiatus of its own. Fortunately, you won’t have to wait on pins and needles for Parks, as it’s scheduled to return April 19th at 9:30, as soon as Up All Night finishes the last of its 24-episode run. They’ll also be launching some new mid-season comedies for Wednesday nights, but none of them really look all that interesting. I’m sad to see Parks & Rec take a breather, but Community to fill that void, I’m sure I’ll learn to live with it. Read more…

Community Gets Its Spring Semester

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jan 9, 2012 in Television

Annie Chang Community

I know we’ve all been biting our nails over this, but fans of NBC’s Community may sleep a little easier knowing the show will definitely return this Spring. NBC’s entertainment chairman Robert Greenblat made the announcement as they kicked off their portion of the Television Critics Association 2012 Winter Press Tour last Friday. As you may recall, NBC pulled Community mid-season to make room for 30 Rock, which premieres later this week. While we had heard that it could possibly return in the spring or even later this summer, there had been no official confirmation until now. That said, Greenblat was quick to point out that the series has yet to be renewed for a fourth season, and that the network will likely wait to make a decision. Again, it’s not exactly what I wanted to hear, but it’s far from “the darkest timeline,” at least for now. Speaking of which, Star Trek 2 officially starts filming this Thursday and should continue through the next four months — about time, don’t you think?

Save Greendale PSA

It’s probably irrational of me to be so upset about a show being put on hiatus like this, but NBC’s Community consistently proves to me why its among the best on television. Read more…

Community Gets a Mid-Season Snub

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Nov 15, 2011 in Television

Troy and Abed

Earlier today, NBC decided to tout their new mid-season lineup. Rather than the awkward sound of crickets or the occasional tumbleweed associated with such an announcement from the fourth-place network, my twitter-feed exploded with the hash tag #savegreendale. I immediately re-examined the press release only to discover that, sure enough, Community was nowhere to be found. As you can imagine, I freaked out. It’s only natural, after all, it’s one of the few NBC sitcoms I still enjoy on a regular basis. Thankfully, it turns out the show isn’t cancelled, per se. It’s just “on the bubble,” so they’re just thinking about it. So, what can you do to save it? Read more…

Wonder Woman Gets a Wardrobe Change

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Mar 31, 2011 in Comic Books, Television

Wonder Woman New Costume

It would appear that NBC’s Wonder Woman has had an official wardrobe change. Apparently, enough people complained about the bright blue vinyl to make a difference. In addition to ditching the shiny pants in favor of a darker spandex, it looks as though they’ve decided to do away with her glossy red lipstick, and blue high-heels as well. While the changes are arguably for the best, I can’t help but feel the costume still seems a bit off.  Perhaps I’m just not used to seeing Wonder Woman in anything but shorts. Maybe it’ll grow on me.  Read more…

Meet the New Wonder Woman

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Feb 17, 2011 in Comic Books, Television

Adrianne Palicki

Various outlets are reporting that Friday Night Lights star Adrianne Palicki has been cast as Diana Prince in NBC’s upcoming Wonder Woman television series. The joint venture between writer David E. Kelley and Jeffrey Reiner had a bumpy start, but after being passed on by a number of networks, NBC finally came to the rescue. Unfortunately, like rival network Fox, NBC  is often quick to pull the plug if a show doesn’t hit the ground running. We’ll just have to hope that Palicki has the skills to match her striking looks — after all, anyone can dye their hair black, but handling that Lasso of Truth? Well, that remains to be seen.
