Next Season Will Be One Tree Hill's Last

... As we expected, the renewal for The CW's One Tree Hill was bitterswseet. The show's ninth season, due to air 13 episodes sometime in early 2012, will be its last. But before you get all teary-eyed, think about this: It was extremely lucky to make it this far. [EW]

... Adult Swim continues to push rip apart the envelope with some fantastic late-night alternative comedy offerings. Listen to these two new shows they've just ordered to series. NTSF:SD:SUV (National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle) will premiere this summer and stars Paul Scheer (who also created it), Rebecca Romijn, and Rob Riggle as an elite team of badasses who protect the San Diego border. The Heart, She Holler premieres this fall and stars Patton Oswalt in a soap opera set in a hillbilly town that's inbred beyond belief. Why can't network comedies sound this good? The two new shows join Eagleheart and Children's Hospital, two vastly under-Twittered about comedies. [Adult Swim via press release]

... Syfy has ordered a fifth season of Destination Truth, and will continue to order additional seasons until someone finds the damn Chupacabra that took down Farmer Brown's sheep! [Syfy via press release]

... The CW is trying some interesting things to keep viewers from zoning out during ads. The first is a Bingo-like game where viewers get a playing card from Facebook or CWTV.com, and play Bingo using the images onscreen. Another new ploy, titled Shoptick, creates synergy through smartphones and advertisements to win prizes. Will you be watching commercials for a chance to win an America's Next Top Model keychain? [Deadline Hollywood]

... Dick Ebersol has resigned from his post at NBC Sports, where he ran things. Apparently he and new owners Comcast could not reach terms on a new deal, so he bailed. Ebersol has been in the sports game for quite some time now, and is best known for bringing the Olympics to NBC. Recently, however, he made a few fumbles (sports metaphor!) by overbidding for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics (which resulted in a more-than-$200-million loss for the network), not pursuing major professional sports rights, and joining wrestling mogul Vince McMahon in creating the XFL, one of the most spectacular disasters in sports history that isn't my beloved Los Angeles Clippers. [NY Times]

... Writer-producer David Fury (24) has joined the crew of Fringe. Fury is also known for Lost, Buffy, and recently ditching Terra Nova over creative differences. Good move for Fringe! [Deadline Hollywood]

... Cinemax's Transporter, based on the movie franchise of the same name, has landed its lead: British actor Chris Vance (Prison Break). The series, produced by hit-or-miss film director Luc Besson, is an action thriller centered on a skilled driver who transports all manners of things, be they legal or illegal. Looks for it on the 'Max next year. [EW]

Okay so for the last 13 episodes of One Tree Hill I think sence there are alot of new faces They should bring back some old faces and i'm not talking about Lucas (ChadMichaelMurray) and Peyton(HilarieBurton)although that would be great but Im talkig about a couple that we leared of in seasons past, Tim Smith(BretClaywell) and Bevin Mirskey(Bevin Prince)We found out that they have a son together in about the 5th season. so why not give the viewers some insite on how that happened and how they are doing now. Some other faces i would like to see again are Chis Keller(TylerHilton), Jake Jagielski(Bryan Greenberg), Rachel Gatina(Danneel Ackles)ect. We all want to know where these Old tree hillers ended up. Over all i think this season should be the season of the past.

I'm happy about One Tree Hill - I don't support these decisions it made to get rid of Peyton and Lucas, but it's good that it gets to actually finish the story rather than leave everyone in wonder.

I'm happy that One Tree Hill was renewed, I think it gives everyone who has followed the show for its run a chance for closure

I'm glad to see Dick Ebersol go. Hopefully NBC Sports will get someone in there who understands this is the 21st century and you can't get away with tape delayed Olympic coverage anymore. Someone who will stop this "10am in every time zone" tape delayed nonsense, stop holding French Open and Wimbledon SF matches hostage, and stop completely destroying the 2nd week of coverage of Wimbledon for all the other networks covering the event (FCC blackouts!!!). But since this is NBC, my hopes aren't high. :

the way you described transporter makes it seem like a cross between bj and the bear and knight rider

One Tree Hill and Supernatural are the last two shows left from The WB network. This will be the ninth season for One Tree Hill and the seventh for Supernatural. Smallville was also a carry over and that lasted ten. So there's not many years left for Supernatural.

David Fury wrote 29 episodes of Buffy/Angel, so that's a fairly good catch. And no mention of NTSF:SD:SUV being a spin-off series from Childrens' Hospital? "I don't negotiate with terrorists.. Because I am one!"

The only thing I hate more than ads, are those stupid too-easy games which cost more money than you're winning. In the Netherlands, we have those not only during ads, but up to three or four hours during boring daytime hours. Let's say I'm just lucky I don't have to watch ads when viewing American television. Good luck.

Cannot believe One Tree Hill is still going. Are they all in a retirement home?

I like the Transporter movies, I like Chris Vance (I remember thinking he was Australian when watching him in Prison Break), and I like Luc Besson's "Leon"... and yet, I find myself pessimistic about the quality of the TV Transporter.

YES! OTH is finally cancelled (or ending I should say)! I've been watching out of loyalty for years but I didn't know how much longer I could watch. I wanted to bang my head against the wall when I heard it was renewed again. I don't know what else they can possibly do for 13 episodes though haha.

You mean we have to wait until 2012 for OTH?? I don't like that. But I guess doing that then they will have a good series finalie i hope.

OTH WAS good, but now it is so melancholy. Who writes that stuff?
But when you are 5+ years into a show, you watch just out of habit!
Adult swim is the best! Like Onion News, it is so refreshing. TV show really take a second look, the drivel they put on is rehash of older stuff!!!!
And no laugh tracks!!!!
