USA Announces Premiere Dates for Burn Notice, Psych

… USA has revealed the return dates for some of its more popular shows. Psych starts Season 6 on October 12, Covert Affairs returns November 1, and Burn Notice comes back on November 3. USA! USA! USA! [Hitfix]

… Oxygen's The Glee Project, a reality competition show whose winner (or in the case of Season 1, winners) lands a role on Fox's Glee, is tuning up a second season despite a very sluggish start. Details on Season 2 are still under wraps, but there IS one detail that I can exclusively reveal to you: Everyone who advances far into the competition will be attractive. Scoop city! [EW]

… ABC has purchased a modern-day take on the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The new version centers on ER doctor Grant Hyde, a demure man with an eye disorder. After undergoing experimental treatment for his condition, Dr. Hyde manifests an alter ego by the name of—and maybe this is just a typo in the report—Hyde, an Alpha male who accomplishes things the doctor cannot. So Hyde begets Hyde? This is the story of Dr. Hyde and Mr. Hyde? [Deadline Hollywood]

Jamie Bamber, better known as Lee Adama from Syfy's Battlestar Galactica, will guest-star on TNT's new show Perception. The drama stars Eric McCormack as a professor who helps the FBI catch crooks. Bamber will play a fellow professor. Where do they teach, do you think—Handsome Professor University? [EW]

… Another Battlestar Galactica alum is hitting the guest-star circuit. Tricia Helfer, who turned heads and tightened pants as Number Six on the sci-fi show, has taken a recurring role on NBC's upcoming legal thriller The Firm. She'll play a senior partner at the titular firm employs lead character Mitch McDeere (Josh Lucas)... and when she wins cases, her spine will glow. [TV Line]

The Shield creator Shawn Ryan has sold a new project to ABC, and it sounds kind of cool. The Last Resort is set in the near future and focuses on the crew of an American nuclear submarine that goes AWOL and declares itself a nuclear nation after refusing orders to fire warheads. The thriller will look at the new society the crew creates on a remote part of the globe, as well as their effects on the native population and the crew itself. Wait a second, did a network just buy an original idea for a change? It's like Lord of the Rings meets Lost meets Das Boot! [Deadline Hollywood]

… Showtime has ordered pilots for three new series. Gurland on Gurland is a "first-person documentary" starring filmmaker Andrew Gurland as he embarks on the next stage of his career. Is the next stage of his career the one where he gets his own documentary on Showtime? I don't get this at all. Masters of Sex is an adaptation of the book of the same name, and focuses on William Masters and Virginia Johnson, a couple who ushered in the Sexual Revolution. Ray Donovan comes from Southland creator Ann Biderman and follows the title character, a "fixer" for the rich and famous in Los Angeles, and his troubled Irish family. I'll stick with The Last Resort. [Deadline Hollywood]

… Wacko Donald Trump is creating a new show based on his Trump Tower. The drama will follow the eccentric personalities who live in the famed building in New York City. One of Trump's sycophantic employees claims cable and network outlets have already expressed interest in the project, because his job depended on it. [NY Post]

Again pretty descent episode. It felt somehow more like a bulid up Episode then a filler, but maybe thats just me. I also liked that we get to Know that there is at least concern and process and thought on the matter how to treat Alphas like skylar. I like that. They don't have to present us the answer right away but to Show that People are Thinking about it is nice.

Also, it didn't quite feel like a stance Dr Rosen took. More like a slightly louder then a ninja step and immediately turning around if somebody heard it.



Loved the comment: this is a descent Show. When is syfy gonna cancel it. Lol

Apart from the network shows that I already watch: Fringe, SPN, House, Burn Notice and Castle - I have absolutely no interest in starting a new show - Cable's where its at, I cannot take the neutered programming of networks anymore. Sons of Anarchy, Dexter, Game of Thrones, Borgias, Killing, Spartacus, Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Boardwalk Empire... not to mention older shows like Oz, Wire, Shield, Sopranos... Network is ass compared to cable.

The first thing I thought of reading about The Last Resort (after remembering that being the title of an old CBS sitcom) was that it almost sounded like a contemporary version of The Bounty. It sounds like the makings of an interesting miniseries, although I didn't think Castle sounded like an ongoing series either.

The Last Resort has to be good. It just has to. Or I'm losing all hope in humanity, stealing a nuclear sub, and doing it myself.



And why can't anyone do Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde well? It's such a ripe idea. Get a great actor, make him play two personalities, add emotion and depth, clear space for Emmy. I hate you ABC.

I wish Psych would end already. The last 2 seasons were very weak but I can't bring myself to drop it from my watch list. Shawn Ryan's new show sounds very interesting, I just hope it's better than Chicago Code.

I actually like Jimmy Fallon. He was very funny on SNL back when he was a cast member. He did a lot of funny skits. I'm happy about that news. Also, I am thrilled to see that Psych will be coming back. I was sad it didn't return this summer.

After the horrible, sickening news about Jimmy "I'm only funny when I laugh at the camera. Wait, that isn't even funny" Fallon hosting SNL, The Last Resort made me feel so good! Sounds real promising. Too bad it will just end up like Pushing Daisies, Life on Mars, The Unusuals, and other 1 season wonders. (Yes, Daisies was 2 seasons, but I am trying to make a point here)

The Last Resort sounds very cool! I started out reading in a kind of glassy-eyed way (after all the thrilling Glee-news and all...) but it really sounds interesting and well thought out. I'm shocked. And tuning in!
