Extra, Extra! The TV.com Times Is Hot Off the Presses (October 6-11, 2013)

Another week, another news cycle full of crazy stories that all took place between the hours of 8pm and 11pm. Hence this latest edition of the The TV.com Times, which brings you all some of the news that's fit to print about what happened in the world of television from October 6 to October 11. Can you figure out which headlines are from which shows?

NOTE: There might be SPOILERS ahead! Telling you exactly which shows are covered would ruin the fun, but keep in mind that anything that aired in the last week is fair game.

I don't watch Nashville, but is Hayden Pannitiere's character singing in living rooms? That's a funny twist.

TBBT missed one crucial affect Indy had on the Ark of the Covenant, had Indy not blown up the flying wing, the Germans would have flown the ark straight to Germany and not have taken Belloc's advice about testing the arc first on that island off Malta. So Indy saves the day, but he does so about about 2/3rds into the movie.

Heh heh, Arrow's public security is always conveniently awful. I suppose they could blame Brother Blood for this one though.

There's Shield, Super Fun Night, and SVU in the left column. Glee in the obits. Revolution in the below-the-fold center column story.

Still can't stress how much I love this. Dummy pages are fun to make; even moreso when the subject matter is what it is here.

The New Orleans bus crash must be the season premiere of American Horror Story.

Nice job! And thanks for another week of SVU coverage. Dean Winters was great in that episode. I tried to add him as MVP, but it didn't stick.

I simultaneously admire his range and struggle to really believe him in dramatic roles after 30 Rock and the Allstate "Mayhem" commercials. I thought it was an compelling episode of SVU, though! Scary subject matter, for sure. --Jen

Try watching OZ then.

Oz was one of the all time greats!
Funny thing too about Oz: Seems like most of the time, anything you watch on TV since then has, or has had an Oz cast member at one point or another. It's become a stoner game in my circle akin to the Kevin Bacon game

Oh, Amy! She ruined Indiana Jones for everybody inside or outside The Big Bang Theory.

She also ruined The Big Bang Theory when she had a personality makeover.

I don't share the opinion. If anything, Sheldon had the personality makeover: to use the same passive-agressive techniques of his parents with his own girlfriend is a huge step for him.

Not to mention, the fact Sheldon just shared the movie he loved the most with the woman he loves the most, or that this equals to rock her world/make her lose her virginity for him.

Government and an abbreviation for it is gov't for space purposes. I know my spelling doesn't always look right but I'm mostly typing on my phone.

I got all of them except the NYPD one. Not sure about that one.

That's from Law & Order: SVU.

I got 9 references but only because some were too obvious. I'm happy to say the Indiana Jones reference eluded me. The only other one was the NYPD corruption article - is that Ryan O'Reilly in the associated picture?

hmm not as good as last week's. But that auto repair shop exploding was pretty crazy. No mention of the GLOBAL meteor shower, though? ;)

The sidebar article with the headline "Nearly half of all ..." . What's that about? I thought the TV.com staff officially despised this type of humor, and I'm using the word humor very loosely. The headline's not bad, but the fat girl lead is not only distasteful but wouldn't pass muster in a third grade study hall.

So, next time you type something high minded and snobbish about a show with guy humor, please remember that fat girls have feelings, too, and deserve love just as much as anyone else.

personally, fatties aren't my thing either, but i know a lot of guys who dig 'em

peace

Why would there be an obituary from the 1920s? I like the concept of this but its difficult to use stuff from period shows. And how does a photo from 2028 appear in the paper?
Reply

YEAH, I totally agree..
And how come none of these stories appeared in the other newspapers?
I dont think ANY of these stories are real....I THINK THEY ARE ALL MADE UP!!!
I dont think there even is an actual Starling City.....OMG, THEY MADE UP AN ENTIRE CITY!!
Where do these so called "reporters" get the temerity to flat out lie and just publish fictional stories...I AM OUTRAGED!!
Edgar R. Morrow must be turning in his grave.
Its like they are commenting on TV shows and not REAL news....I just dont understand how the TV.com Times thought that they could get away with such a thing.
If I wanted to read about TV shows I would join a site dedicated to TV shows. where they would post articles about TV episodes and not real life current events.
SOMEONE CALL WOLF BLITZER!!!

This very special newspaper transcends time! (We're still experimenting how to cover period pieces/shows that take place in the future.)

@FunkDoctorSpot I'm not sure addressing the time thing is beneficial. It just makes it more glaringly obvious when there are different futures or different pasts or different worlds. That limits them primarily to shows in the present time with a realistic setting and consistent canon between them. Consider Teen Wolf, is it a valid show to cover in the present tense? Based on when it started and the weird chronology of the show, it might still be 2011 right now. Where do you draw the line? If a show two years in the past is valid, what about 3 or 5? What about 5 ni the future? I think the more broadly applicable model of thinking about this is that tv.com is "the wood between the worlds" in the Chronicles of Narnia.

Well at least with Revolution, you guys made it look like it's a prediction. But ya'll coulda used a different photo. With period shows, I suggest doing something like a "look back in history" story or something like "new discovery/info" on an old unsolved mystery.

Again, I really dig this newspaper idea. Keep at it. Also, here's an idea to ponder. How about putting some fake ads of fake products from various shows?
