HBO Cancels The Life and Times of Tim

  • 25comments

... Sad news, folks. HBO has canceled The Life and Times of Tim after two seasons. But there may be a tiny little light at the end of the tunnel. Comedy Central, TBS, and other cable networks have supposedly expressed interest in picking up the show, so Tim's life and times may go on. Keep your fingers crossed. [Deadline]

... Seth MacFarlane is in (animated) trouble again! The FCC was not too pleased with a horse ejaculation scene that aired in a January episode of American Dad!, and now FOX could face some $25,000 fineage. [Huffington Post]

... The Coco saga continues: TBS is trying to get advertisers to pay as much as they did for spots on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien. That might be kind of hard because, uh, TBS is not NBC. Nice try though! Good luck to you! [New York Post]

... In case the trailers from the 2010 Upfronts weren't enough for you, CBS has released extended trailers! More Mike and Molly! More Hawaii Five-O! More $#*! and Shatner! [THR]

... FlashForward fans are going to stage the most awesomest protest ever in an attempt to revive the show. They're planning to play dead on June 10 in front of several of ABC's big-city offices for—you guessed it—2 minutes and 17 seconds. [Variety]

... Those aforementioned FlashForward fans will probably be bummed to hear that Joseph Fiennes has moved on... but stoked that he's found a way cooler role for himself. He'll play Merlin in Starz's new Camelot series opposite Casino Royale's Eva Green, who will play the sorceress Morgana. Sounds like a party! [THR]

... Julia Stiles confirmed to a random tabloid-y website that she'll be guest-starring on Dexter next season. Here's hoping that she pulls a John Lithgow and revives her career in a supremely creep-tastic way, thought it doesn't sound like she will. [Hollywood Life]

... Tate Donovan and Christina Chang have left No Ordinary Family for vague reasons. Ausiello reports that it's story-line-related, but who knows. [Ausiello]
