The loving came early from The CW for their best-performing shows. The network gave renewals for five series for the 2014-2015 television season.

Not surprisingly, Arrow is among the bunch. The superhero series is the most-watched program (3.9 million) on The CW. Despite being in its ninth season, Supernatural posted double-digit increases year-to-year. The Vampire Diaries also was on the receiving end of good news from the network. Find out which freshmen series earned a sophomore season below.

Before he played Dawson Leery’s dad on The WB teen drama, John Wesley Shipp donned red tights as The Flash for CBS. Over twenty years later, the 59-year-old returns to his superhero roots.

However, it’s unclear exactly what role he’ll play on the Arrow spinoff on the CW. All that was teased is that he’ll be a ‘mysterious character‘ that would expand to recurring status should the network pick up the pilot. Shipp is one of the final pieces in the casting process. Find out below who else is on board for The Flash.

As if we needed another reason to love Stephen Amell. The Arrow star showed off his support for the LGBT community on a recent Facebook post. The 32-year-old actor slammed Russia for its homophobic laws and their ‘Stone Age’ mentality. He also made it clear that while he opposes the country’s antiquated laws, he wished all the best for the athletes who’ve trained their entire lives to compete at the Olympics.

“For everyone asking, we’re taking a mini hiatus so people can grit their teeth and suffer through an Olympic games marred by homophobia and mediocre levels of public interest. Back February 26th.”

“Follow up point — Good luck to all the athletes who have worked so hard for so many years and essentially geared their entire life around this opportunity. Hopefully, a lot of them will use their success and a public platform to remind everybody this isn’t the stone age.”

Amell previously stated he was okay with homosexuals hitting on him. With his recent comment, I’m sure he’s won over a few more admirers. Still not convinced. Check out some stills from a recent episode where he demonstrated his amazing salmon ladder skills. Having a great body is impressive enough, but I still marvel at anyone who can execute this exercise.

What Was The Most Pirated Show Of 2013?

In: Donovan, TV Shows
most-pirated-shows-2013

Whether we like to admit it or not (for legal reasons), we’ve all downloaded our favorite TV shows through bittorrent at some point or another. Sometimes we can’t help it because our PVR/DVR decided to go crazy and miss a show or someone in our household “accidentally” deleted it after watching it themselves. Or my most annoying pet peeve, when a preceding show bleeds into regularly scheduled programming. That drives me insane. Regardless of the reason, we’ve all done it. And according to the 2013 statistics compiled by TorrentFreak.com, millions of us are guilty as charged.

Once again Game of Thrones is the reigning king/queen of illegal downloads. The site reports that the season three finale of the HBO fantasy series was illegally downloaded 5.9 million times, while 5.4 million viewers watched the finale on television legally. One would think this would piss off HBO execs, right? Not so.

With Great Power, Comes Great Abs #Preach

In: Donovan, TV Shows

We’re less than a week away from the second season premiere of Arrow? Can you feel the excitement? I can, but I’d rather feel Stephen Amell’s abs. Can I get an amen? The CW released another promo with Amell’s chiseled six pack front and center. They really know how to cater to their demo, don’t they?

“With great power, comes great abs,” Emily Bett Rickards explains. I’m so glad the powers-that-be promoted her character Felicity to series regular this season. Besides all the shirtless scenes of Stephen, she was the best thing about the superhero show. Watch Felicity travel to Lian Yu below and encounter a very sweaty Oliver Queen. Lucky girl.

The CW Promotes Amellsdays With Robbie & Stephen

In: Donovan, TV Shows

The second The CW paired up freshman series The Tomorrow People with last year’s breakout hit Arrow, I knew this promo was coming. If you have two good-looking cousins starring in each series, it’s a no-brainer. Both Robbie Amell and Stephen Amell look scrumptious in the clip, especially Robbie. He’s so darn adorable. Stephen may have the super hot sculpted body, but there’s something about Robbie. He does dorky really well.

In the new promo “Amellsday,” Robbie spews off Amell-style puns including Amelltastic, Amellorific and other cheesy lines. Playfully annoyed by all the puns, Stephen states, “This is why I always avoided you at Christmas.” Naturally, Robbie responds with, “You mean Amell-is-mas?” How does one get invited to the next family gathering?

Both shows have their respective premiere on Wednesday, October 9. How coincidental is it that it’s on hump day ;) Check out the cute clip below.

Colton Haynes…. Sings???

In: Donovan, Music

Who knew Colton Haynes could sing? The 25-year-old actor surprised many with his recent tweet, “Hey Tweeps! Check out the teaser for this special musical project I’ve been working on! Details soon…”

The teaser features the Arrow actor belting out Josh Groban’s “You Raise Me Up.” While it’s difficult for anyone to match Groban’s powerful pipes, Haynes does a respectable job. I’m curious to know more about this secret project he has up his sleeves. Hopefully, it requires himself to be shirtless like those Season 2 Arrow promos. Can’t get enough of those abs.

Arrow’s Male Stars Go Shirtless In New Promos

In: Donovan, TV Shows

When Arrow debuted last season, Stephen Amell carried the weight of the show on his muscular shoulders on his own. For the show’s sophomore year, the network is alleviating the pressure on Amell and spreading the shirtless promotional duties to the other male actors on the superhero show.

Much like what Lionsgate did when they released the Capital Portraits for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The CW debuted their new batch of promo pics on several media outlets. Amell’s photo popped up on TVLine.com, while Manu Bennett appeared on Acccess Hollywood. Both Colton Haynes and David Ramsey showed off their hard work at the gym over at E! networks.

Check out the boys in all their topless glory below. Be sure to weigh in afterward on who has a career with the Chippendales should their day job fall through.
