Eureka! A Fifth Season!

... Syfy has given the go-ahead for a fifth season of its original program Eureka, ensuring that we'll see another round of wacky misadventures in the town that's chock full o' smartypants. The show was previously the network's top program, but has ceded that title to upstart Warehouse 13 (with which it will do a crossover episode). Still, it's averaging more than 3 million viewers a week, which is pretty darned good. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Sure it's fun to watch Stefan and Elena get hot and heavy on The Vampire Diaries, but what about Stefan's other two decades of undeadness? You'll get to learn all about those years with prequel books due out on shelves in November. But don't expect the author of the original series, L.J. Smith, to pen them. This is purely a way to capitalize on the Vampire Diaries franchise with some extra fluff. [EW]

... ABC will continue to get into the holiday spirit with a balding, pre-teen loser who wears the same clothes all the time. The network has signed a deal with Peanuts Worldwide LLC to continue airing the Charlie Brown holiday specials for the next five years. [Washington Post]

... YES YES YES! HBO has come to its senses and renewed the super hilarious The Life & Times of Tim for a third season, just a few months after it canceling the animated show. No word on when it will be back, but the order is for 10 more episodes. [Deadline Hollywood]

... Lots of people love to tell you what the most anticipated new shows of the fall season are. And they do this through the use of surveys that ask people what they're excited about. The latest comes from some faceless company called International Communications Research, and topping their list are Hawaii Five-0 and No Ordinary Family. The Event, Nikita, and Lonestar follow, but take this survey with a grain of salt. On their list of most anticipated returning shows was The Prisoner which was canceled. Ummm, what? [The Live Feed]

... Michael Ealy, formerly of FlashForward and the underrated Sleeper Cell, has landed the lead in USA Network's upcoming Common Law. The show is a buddy cop drama-comedy where—you'll never guess!&151;two guys who are total opposites partner up! Wacky! Ealy will also be seen as a recurring character on The Good Wife. [EW]

... Glee must be stopped! A UK radio station has popped up featuring nothing but Glee jams. Apparently the station has 178 radio-ready singles from the show. Not so coincidentally, I have 178 reasons to shoot myself in the face. [NY Post]

i'm not saying everyone, but definitely many people who dislike Glee, do so because they don't get it. the show is of course very cheesy and full of teenage drama, but it also makes fun of itself for exactly those reasons. if the writers would make it all serious, i'd hate it too, but making it kind of a parody of itself just makes it awesome. ^.^ also, the music is great (if you like showtunes, that is) and really, if you don't like it, simply don't watch it, no one's forcing you.

btw, while i wouldn't need Glee on every radio station, i wouldn't mind having one that plays those songs. xD

I like Glee. The storylines are kinda lame but everyone has incredible vocal talent. And, sure, they're not singing original songs, but there's a twist on every cover they do, and Matt Morrison dancing around in tight black jeans and those skin-tight tee shirts? Always fun.

I agree about the Glee comment LOL I still don't get the appeal of such a crappy-not-original-songs-only-cover-singing "show"

I know a lot of people don't, but I really like Glee. However, I find playing their songs on the radio a tad ridiculous; whether it's one song or an entire station devoted to them...

Good news for Eureka, I just love that show! Warehouse 13 is equally awesome and I'm really looking forward for the crossover!

stop hating on Glee, it's better than half the.. uh.. let's say 'Shat'ner.. on tv but yes, a radio station just for Glee is a stupid idea. also, how can they have 178 singles when there's only been 101 songs, counting the bonus tracks (one of which wasn't on the show) and the Christmas song that wasn't on any episode . i'm glad about Eureka, also one of the best shows on tv

Two thing wrong with this article, Firstly the EUREKA\WAREHOUSE 13 crossover isn't happening because it already happened, And I'm pretty sure since he was around before the Civil War that Stefan has been undead for more than 2 decades!

A radio station just devoted to Glee is going a bit too far.

I must step in the defend the honor of Charlie Brown! Schulz showed in a cartoon that Charlie Brown actually has a whole closet full of shirts that all have the same squiggely stripe. Of course, you might be referring to Pigpen...

Hoorah for Eureka! That's awesome, and there's still plenty in the tank for this season. I'm all tingly now!

O come on, Glee is a guilty pleasure ;) ! Thank god for Eureka, I've totally gotten into it, and Warehouse 13 just over the summer, they are my two new favorite shows! Vampire Diaries franchise branching out is just yuck. Just like Twilight was beaten to death with it's own fan memorabilia (but I've hated the o so commercial and may I say grosely predictable Twilight from the start, Vampire Diaries I actually like).

Yay for Eureka, but it'd be a superdooper-yay if they'd bring back Ms Jaime Ray Newman.
