NBC has decided that Chase doesn’t need to go on for so long this season. Executives at the Peacock Network have changed their mind about giving the series a full 22 episodes. The freshman drama series about a team of U.S. Marshals, and stars Kelli Giddish, Cole Hauser and Jesse Metcalfe,hasn’t pulled in the expected ratings. Studio insiders from both NBC and Warner Brothers say that the reduction of episodes from 22 to 18 does not mean that Chase has been canceled. It is still considered a full-season order for the series. Chase will be moved to Wednesdays beginning Jan. 12, 2011.
FX has sent it’s fledging series Terriers to the cancellation Kennel. The quirky series, which averaged about 500,000 viewers per episode, starred Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James as two best friends who take on the sometimes dangerous role of unlicensed private investigators in San Diego County. The series, which was created by Ted Griffin (Oceans 11), executive producer Shawn Ryan (The Shield) and Tim Minear (Dollhouse), ran for 13 episodes before FX made their decision.
FOX has announced that the third season of LIE TO ME has been capped at thirteen episodes and they have declined to order the back nine episodes of the Tim Roth-starring crime drama. Executives at FOX say that Lie to Me has not been canceled and that a decision on the show’s fate is not expected to be announced until May 2011. Meanwhile, The Chicago Code, a new drama from Shawn Ryan (The Shield, Terriers, and, yes, Lie to Me) had already been scheduled to take over Lie to Me‘s Monday night 9 PM time slot beginning February 7, 2011.
The hit CW action series Supernatural which revolves around storylines regarding the heroic but angst ridden monster hunting/demon fighting brothers, Sam and Dean Winchester, is having a very good day today. After six seasons of being a cult audience favorite, the series won it’s first ever TV Guide cover which prominently features Jared Padalecki (Sam) and Jensen Ackles (Dean) the two handsome and highly talented stars of the series (read the Eclipsemagazine article by Liana Bekakos for the full story).
This Friday, December 10th, Supernatural will air its final first run episode of season 6 before the holidays bring us into reruns. Supernatural S6.11 is titled Appointment in Samarra. In keeping with the good day feeling for the series, the CW Network has released some photos from the upcoming episode to share with fans and viewers alike.
Before we move on to take a look at the photos, I would like to share a few of my thoughts about season 6 of Supernatural.
While The CW has yet to make an official announcement, by not picking up the ‘back nine’ for Life Unexpected, it effectively let it be known that the series was canceled. Now comes news that Warner Home Video will be releasing Life Unexpected: The Complete Series on DVD and Blu-ray on April 5, 2011.
Although the set will include all twenty-six episodes from the show’s two seasons, it’s incredible light on bonus material. The WHV press release only lists the following: Life In Portland: The Making of Life Unexpected; Lux, Cate, Baz, Ryan & Math: The Casting of Life Unexpected; Deleted Scenes, and a Gag Reel. It’s a sad end for the best teen soap on TV.
Wow, Sunday night Television is getting packed. We have Football (usually the week’s marquee game), HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and now AMC joins the party with their amazing new dense series The Walking Dead. I’m not a fan of Zombies, always found them really boring, so it’s a good thing AMC’s new series is about how people live in a Zombie infested world and not just Zombie killing 101.
Just in case you missed this past Sunday’s Episode of HBO’s excellent Boardwalk Empire, here’s a recap clip.
and while we’re at it, let’s take a look at next Sunday’s episode.
Ok, Marla made her pitch to have you fine EM readers vote for Smallville and Supernatural to get the cover of TV guide. But me being your fearless leader have to go with Chuck for the cover.

Both Smallville and Supernatural have been nominated due to their incredible fan bases and both need you to vote now to help one of them win the December 13th cover! You can vote as often as you like. so please take the time to vote now at the TV Guide cover poll.
