CBS Renews Three Dramas & The CW Renews Eight Shows

In: Donovan, TV Shows

CBS and The CW were in generous moods this week. Both gave early renewals to several shows on their respective schedules.

Freshman shows on the eye network were especially lucky. Scorpion, NCIS: New Orleans, and Madam Secretary all received sophomore seasons. Among the bunch, NCIS: NO has the biggest ratings with 18.1 million on average, earning the distinction as the season’s most-watched new drama. Madam Secretary and Scorpion generate 14.9 million and 14.5 million respectively.

“These freshman dramas have each made a big impact on key nights of the week,” CBS entertainment chairman Nina Tassler said. “Creatively distinctive, the series are backed by strong showrunners with amazingly talented casts, and have resonated with a big, broad audience.”

Though not officially renewed, Tassler revealed that Stalker, also a new show, is still in consideration for another season. Among CBS’ new offerings, this is the one I watch so hopefully it gets a second year. Find out which shows on CBS’ sister network received good news.

In: Donovan, TV Shows

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.

It only took five seasons, but The Vampire Diaries is finally adding a gay character to its cast. A sassy one at that. Meanwhile it’s spin-off, The Originals, wasted no time out of the gate by adding a G.B.F. (gay best friend). The scene-stealing Josh is quite hilarious, don’t you think? E! Online has all the details on Vampire Diaries’ new addition.

“A new hottie is enrolling at Whitmore after winter break! And he’ll be spending time with Caroline! Except he’s so not into her in that way as Luke, handsome and sarcastic, is gay. And also happens to have a sister on campus, one that he will do [or sacrifice] anything to protect.” – E! Online Description

I don’t watch the CW supernatural series, but if I did I’m sure I’d be ecstatic about this casting news. Truth be told, I’m surprised it took them this long. Are you a fan of the show? Excited for some sassy sarcastic gay humor to come your way? Weigh in below.

Gladiators came out in full force for the Season 3 premiere of Scandal last Thursday. The ABC political drama roared back with a series best. It was up 71% over its year-ago season premiere and surpassed its previous series highs by 13%. The only show that fared better that night was CBS’ The Big Bang Theory. Looks like Olivia Pope isn’t just top dog in Washington, D.C. but on the Twitter-verse as well.

Nielsen in conjunction with SocialGuide began a new metric last week, tabulating the number of people tweeting about TV programs and the audience of people who actually view those Tweets. With social media becoming such an integral part of viewing, due to all those hashtags popping up on the bottom corner of the screen, it only makes sense this new chart exists. You can thank Pretty Little Liars for starting this trend.

Topping the first ever Top 10 chart, is none other than Scandal. The show notched almost 713,000 tweets in the seven hours before, during and after its premiere. Those tweets reached an audience of roughly 3.65 million unique Twitter users. Miley Cyrus dominated the next two spots with her MTV documentary and guest host stint on Saturday Night Live. Find out how many tweets she generated and the rest of the Top 10 below.

Next week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries serves as a backdoor pilot for a potential spinoff titled The Originals. If it goes well, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) will be fronting his own show for 2013-2014 season. If it doesn’t go well, it could end up like that ill-fated backdoor pilot Gossip Girl tried with a young Lily in the 80s.

Originally, a spinoff was planned a couple of years ago with Vampires creator Kevin Williamson but that was put on the back burner so that he could focus on The Secret Circle. Thankfully he rebounded with FOX’s The Following. Soooo good. The second spinoff attempt will have no involvement from Williamson, but will be carried out by Julie Plec.

The network just released an extended promo for next week’s anticipated episode. Klaus heads to New Orleans- a city that his family helped built but then fled 100 years ago. He sees his former protege Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) ruling the Big Easy. He’s envious of his power and wants it for himself. The clip ends with Klaus saying, “I want to be king.” Check out the promo below.

Arguably, The CW has some of the hottest guys on network television. Hell, that’s why I tune in most of the time ;) Without a doubt, Stephen Amell from Arrow is at the top of that list. With his chiseled body and handsome face, this man just oozes sex appeal. Between you and me, the Oliver McQueen actor is as stunning in person. I often bump into him at the gym. Sufficed to say, I always try to get the treadmill with the best view.

As the old saying goes, it takes one to know one. The 31-year-old was put through a test from the folks over at TV Guide. His task was to identify which ripped set of abs belonged to a CW stud. Not surprisingly, dude earned a perfect score. Someone’s apparently been studying his fellow network colleagues’ assets. Watch the video below. After that, check out how I ranked the five guys. It’s pretty obvious who my No. 1 pick is. Be sure to comment on whether you agree or disagree with my rankings.

The CW Renews Three Shows For Next Season

In: Donovan, TV Shows

If you’re an avid Nielsen Ratings follower, The CW’s decision to renew these three shows shouldn’t be shocking. The only thing remotely surprising is that the network did it this early. The upfronts where networks reveal their 2013-14 schedules are still a few months away. That said, the news is always nice to hear especially to fans and the cast and crew of each show. Another year of regular pay cheques is always a good thing.

There’s no denying Arrow is the season’s breakout hit on The CW if not on all the broadcast networks. It arrived with a bang with 4.3 million viewers and consistently brings in viewers weekly. It’s the network’s most-watched show. Meanwhile, The Vampire Diaries is tops when it comes to the target demographic of adults and women between the ages of 18-34. The supernatural series will return for a fifth season.

Man Crush: Taylor Kinney

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!, TV Shows

I originally crushed on Taylor Kinney back in 2010 as he was about to make his debut as Mason Lockwood on The CW’s The Vampire Diaries. Since the 31-year-old actor is one of the stars of NBC’s upcoming Chicago Fire, I thought it was time to update this post and lust over this stud again. As two years have passed since my initial writeup, I’ve added many more photos to this post. After you check out my updated collection of Kinney’s shirtless pics, I’m sure you’ll agree he’s worth selecting as a Man Crush once again.

Kinney was raised alongside his three brothers by their single mother. Before developing an interest in acting, he studied business management at West Virginia University. Like all aspiring actors, he practiced his craft in theatre in such plays as Fallout and A Streetcar Named Desire. His feature films credits include Furnace, White Air and Diary of a Champion.

Before appearing on Chicago Fire, this Pennsylvanian native was best known as Luke Gianni on Fashion House (MyNetworkTV) and for his recurring role on NBC’s now-canceled Trauma. That all changed when he joined The Vampire Diaries cast on The CW. He became even more well known when he began shacking up with Lady Gaga. Taylor even appeared in one of her music videos. Without further ado, let’s check out his chesticles, man nips and washboard abs below.
