NBC Renews More Crap

... NBC has given The Sing-Off a second season, proving that America can't seem to get enough of watching unknowns see their dreams crushed. The singing competition show will be back for eight episodes next season, if you care. [The Live Feed]

... Not to be outdone, MTV has renewed The Buried Life for another season. The show follows four bro-dudes as they do stuff that you always wish you could do but can't because you don't have a show on MTV that pays for it all. [The Live Feed]

... Delroy Lindo, one of those actors who you've always seen and recognized but never really knew his name, has joined the cast of Shawn Ryan's new Fox drama pilot Ride-Along. The show's about cops looking to clean up the streets, just like every other cop show. Lindo will play a politician who may be a little crooked, just like every other politician. [THR]

... Do you love Leave it to Beaver? Do you think that 36 Leave it to Beaver DVDs isn't enough Leave it to Beaver for your crippling Leave it to Beaver obsession? Then how about a 37-disc Leave it to Beaver set! Because who doesn't have an extra $200 to burn? [the very specifically named TV Shows on DVD]

... When Gossip Girl returns next season, one of its main ladies won't be back... for a while. Jenny (Taylor Momsen) is in for a big turn during the show's season finale, which will result in her being absent for the beginning of Season Four. I'm guessing she'll get an internship at Nasa and be shot to the Moon. [EW]

... Since it's a slow news day, here's a video of the kid being dubbed the Taiwanese Susan Boyle. Apparently it's meant as a compliment.

actually the buried life guys did everything without help from MTV and had all of season 1 filmed before they made a deal with mtv. Get the facts right... horrible reporting.

After reading the title, I could've sworn that this was about Heroes.

Don't forget that these are also the same d-bags that seem to be passing on Rex Is Not Your Lawyer starring DAVID *F'N* TENNANT!!

I stopped watching NBC years ago. GE, the owner of NBC hired an idiot as its CEO. The network that once gave us Cosby, now gives us total CRAP. Their news shows are crap! QVC and the Home Shopping Channels have better rating than NBC, CNBC, MSNBC. They totally screwed Conan O'Brien so I am boycotting NBC and I will NEVER buy a GE product

Chuck is the only NBC show I watch, but I only watch it on Hulu so I can avoid all the promos for the rest of the NBC dreck. My cable company must have seen this coming. They moved NBC down to the lowest channel, with shopping networks and religious channels"above" it. All the other network channels are clustered together.

(Sarcasm Alert!) I don't understand why people are hating on NBC. They cleared out that pesky Conan to give us Jay Leno starring as Bob Hope (circa 1970) and, in primetime, fat people sweating and crying. If that's not fine entertainment, I don't know what is.

Jenny the character has turned into a little witch

Hopefully Jenny will be busy serving time in prison. I like the actress, but her character has been an annoying, backstabbing, felonious little B lately, and it's not what I watch Gossip Girl for.

What is it with Shawn Ryan and cop shows seriously does he have some sort of crushed childhood dream he can't let go of or just a really weird fetish? And does that mean he's left Lie To Me?

Okay, now I'm convinced they're doing all this on purpose. NBC execs are actually middle schoolers who think it's funnier to annoy people than to make decent decisions, because the reactions on our faces are endlessly hilarious to them. They're just saying everything we don't want to hear "for the lulz." At least their Thursday will still be golden next season, but with the dark forces surrounding it, how long can that last?

Couldn't agree more with talonz999. Life was awesome.

Looks like NBC is sliding back to what is was back in the early 1980's, a joke of a network. If it expects to gain back its prominence, they must excise ALL of its unwatchable "Reality TV" & give us programs worth watching.

Hey, NBC, remember that really cool show that you cut its legs off last year? I believe its name was Life. If you would have had just a little bit of foresight, that show would have its feet under itself by now and maybe even been making a profit. But no, you dinks still think there is money to be made with the low overhead junk called reality TV. Serves you right to suffer you dimwits.

So happy about Jenny not being in the beginning of the 4th season of Gossip Girl. NBC need to pick up their act, and most of all, RENEW CHUCK!

NBC is seriously whacked in the head. I totally agree that Chuck should be their top priority right now.

It is hard to imagine that just a few years ago, NBC was one of the top networks. But this year, they have just made some epically bad decisions. The whole Late Night thing, Leno in prime time and all of that has left them scrambling. They seemingly overlook some of the few good shows they have in favor of marketable junk.
