Ooo, some cool preview pics for February episodes of Once Upon a Time! Includes our first look at McNab from Psych as Gaston (above)! And how awesome is it that Belle (Lost’s Emilie de Ravin) is holding a book and wearing an off-the-shoulder yellow dress, so reminiscent of the animated movie version! Some of the pics (this is the only Beauty and the Beast one) are a little spoilerish, so look at your own risk. The article itself (pics are in a slideshow beneath it, so you’ll only see the non-spoiler first one) is less so.
The best thing to help out The Finder’s not-so-great premiere ratings? Having the second episode host guest star John Francis Daley, playing his character from Bones, Dr. Lance Sweets. If this preview video is any indication, the episode will be hilarious!
Ooo, this sounds good, and looks like a great team is behind it. Now all I want is a sneak peek at the cast list!
Wow, so many good tidbits of info about future episodes of NCIS: Los Angeles, Suburgatory, Private Practice, and much, much more! (See list of tags for all the shows that come up in this fun article!)
Lots of great scoop on the second half of season 3, from Peter and Neal themselves!
If Cabin in the Woods, The Avengers, and Much Ado about Nothing weren’t enough Joss Whedon for 2012, it looks like he’s working on something else. Supernatural romance sounds intriguing, but I really hope he gets back to the world of television soon (I’ll even settle for a web series).
I won’t be able to catch this live, but I’ll definitely be catching it Monday, especially to see Emma Caulfield (of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Bandwagon). A little disappointed to read that she won’t appear in Maine, but I do hope she’ll make it back for another episode (though of course the ending to the traditional Hansel and Gretel story would prevent that).
I was thinking about reviewing this awesome episode of Grimm, but Ruth Anderson already did a great job of it. Though I did wonder why Nick felt like he had to keep his friendship with Monroe a secret from Hank. Sure, they don’t seem to have much in common (though really, what are Nick’s hobbies?), but no reason not to let Hank know they’ve had a few beers together.
The look on Monroe’s face after he shot the ogre makes me wonder if this whole “helping a Grimm” thing is getting to him. After all, he’s helping get rid of creatures who, while not exactly his allies, still have a lot in common with him.
I was surprised The Finder did so poorly on its first time out, but it had a lot of competition at 9PM: Person of Interest (with most viewers ever – probably thanks to an awesome fall finale), Grey’s Anatomy, The Office, and The Secret Circle. I thought The Finder’s pilot (which featured finding a missing pilot) was decent, but I’m probably going to watch Person of Interest live from now on (maybe CBS.com’s video player stinks on purpose, since that makes people want to watch live instead). Going to check out Rob – if it’s good, I’ll be watching CBS from 8-10 on Thursdays.
Ha – this episode is bound to be hilarious! Deeks is the best thing to happen to NCIS: Los Angeles since Hetty replaced Macy.
This photo just makes me happy.

Interesting look at how Hulu’s double-pronged revenue model (Hulu Plus and ads) is working for them. It’s nice to know that they’re using that to pay content providers more for shows rather than just lining their own pockets. I wish some content providers would be less stingy with their shows in return (USA Network’s 30-day delays and such). The only major network that doesn’t have their shows on Hulu is CBS, but I vastly prefer Hulu’s player to the CBS website buggy one (it does have one benefit – shows are put up around 2AM the morning after they air, compared to Hulu’s 6AM). I watch the majority of the shows I miss live on Hulu.
Fans of How I Met Your Mother have been waiting years to finally meet the future Mrs. Ted Mosby, but since the show is doing so well, it’s understandable that the network and showrunners want to delay that moment as long as possible. Altering the show so it can continue in a slightly different form after we meet the mother sounds like a good compromise. (If it keeps going in it’s current form too much longer, the sequel series could have Future Ted telling his grandchildren the story of “How I Raised Your Mother”.)
Well, I told you all who I voted for this year – now to look at the results! Full results list with all the winners and nominees is linked at the bottom of this post.
FAVORITE NETWORK TV DRAMA
I voted for House, Supernatural won.
FAVORITE TV DRAMA ACTOR
I voted for both David Boreanaz and Nathan Fillion, and Fillon won!
FAVORITE TV DRAMA ACTRESS
I voted for Bones’ Emily Deschanel, but The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev won.
FAVORITE CABLE TV DRAMA
Pretty Little Liars won. I really wish it had been White Collar – an excellent show that more people should be talking about.
FAVORITE NETWORK TV COMEDY
I voted for both The Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother, and HIMYM won.
FAVORITE TV COMEDY ACTOR
HIMYM continues conquer as Neil Patrick Harris won. I voted for both him and Jim Parsons.
FAVORITE TV COMEDY ACTRESS
Voted for Kaley Cuoco, but Glee’s Lea Michele won.
FAVORITE CABLE TV COMEDY
Don’t currently watch any, but Hot in Cleveland won.
FAVORITE TV CRIME DRAMA
Voted for my 3 favorite ones, all nominated this year: Bones, Castle, and NCIS. Castle won.
FAVORITE SCI-FI/FANTASY SHOW
I’d only seen Supernatural on this list, so I voted for it, and it won.
FAVORITE TV GUEST STAR
Katy Perry’s appearance on How I Met Your Mother won this, though I preferred Jim Carrey on The Office (wish he would have had more of a role).
FAVORITE NEW TV DRAMA
Surprised that Person of Interest won this! It’s a solid show that keeps improving, but hasn’t seem to create the buzz and fans that shows like Once Upon a Time (which I voted for) have.
FAVORITE NEW TV COMEDY
2 Broke Girls was my vote, and it won.
Hmm, something that may finally get me to watch Hawaii Five-O! It airs at the same time as Castle, so I’ve rather been rooting for its demise, even though it seems like a decent show. The one episode I caught during the middle of season one didn’t wow me, and while several of the show’s actors are familiar, none were favorites. And I had plenty of cop shows to keep me busy anyway.
Finding out one of the show’s villains is played by James Marsters sparked my interest in the show again, but I couldn’t justify trying to squeeze in another show for only a reoccurring guest. But since the crossover in question doesn’t happen until May, maybe I will have time to catch up with the season and a half of Hawaii Five-O that has aired so far.
At least I now know what Kensi’s mysterious Hawaii trip was about!
