NO LAUGHING MATTER FOR THE CW

... The CW has abandoned its efforts to get back into comedy and has dropped both Seed and Backpackers from its schedule, effective immediately. Backpackers, about a couple dudes backpacking around the world, originated as a web series on The CW's digital video site CW Seed, and Seed, about a sperm donor who develops a relationship with the recipients (and resulting children), was a Canadian import. They'll be replaced on Monday nights by the Young Hollywood Awards and Arrow repeats until the Season 21 premiere of America's Next Top Model, which has been bumped up to Monday August 18 from Friday, August 22. ANTM will air on Mondays for six weeks, then move back to Fridays on October 3. As for Backpackers and Seed, someone please break the news to Cory, who (mostly) liked both shows. [Deadline / CW via press release]


BUSINESS TIME

... When Stephen Colbert takes over the Late Show from David Letterman next year, he won't pack things up and move like that big jerk Jimmy Fallon did with The Tonight Show. Colbert and the Late Show will stay put in the Ed Sullivan Theater, where Letterman and the Late Show currently film. [CBS via press release]

... Well, there's no two ways about it, this sounds incredibly dumb: Syfy has okayed the development of a show called Ncredible Improv, an improv-comedy series in which two teams will compete against each other in fantasy/sci-fi-themed sketches. Nick Cannon will host. I hope this gets greenlighted just so that we can see how bad it is. [Syfy via press release]

... TLC has a new tagline: "Everyone needs a little TLC." It replaces the network's old tagline, of "Look at this shitshow of weirdos." [TLC via press release]

... Comic publisher IDW is going to produce an Orphan Black comic book, with a target release date of early 2015. The comics will tell all-new stories in the Orphan Black universe, and Tatiana Maslany will draw each and every frame, write the stories, print the comics, deliver them to stores, and get snubbed by whatever the biggest comic-book awards are. [TV Line]



CASTING NEWS

... Jessica Biel, who some people find attractive, will be guest-starring in New Girl's Season 4 premiere. She'll play a smokin' hot scientist named Kat who competes with Jess in trying to snag the same guy. That poor fella! He just can't catch a break. New Girl returns Tuesday, September 16 on Fox. [TV Guide

... Score one for Fat Neil! Charley Koontz, who played the suicidal D&D dork on Community, is going big-time with a regular role on CBS's CSI: Cyber a.k.a. www.csi.com or CSI: Have You Tried Turning It Off and On Again?. Koontz will star opposite Patricia Arquette as Agent Daniel Grummitz, a—you guessed it—tech wiz. [Deadline

Tatiana Maslany is seriously drawing everything? Where will she find the time to do it while playing so many characters on OB?

How Seed needs CW to be renewed it can exist without it being a Canadian series, isn't it?

I hope this gets greenlighted just so that we can see how bad it is.

I am going to reserve judgement, and yes I think I threw up in my mouth a little saying that.

I thought FaceOff was going to be an epic fail. And you know what? It's actually not bad. I tend to hate reality shows with a passion, but that's one I can at least get behind. They tend to create interesting things on the show.

So... while I imagine Ncredible Improv will stink, I'll give it a shot just in case pulls a Face Off. Actually, that sounded disgusting,

Told you this season will be last for POI. Nolan will work with HBO after all.

Where did it say anything about this being POI's last season?

Oh, SYFY, you don't need an improvised sketch comedy show, some of your programming choices already make us laugh enough.

"CSI: Have You Tried Turning It Off and On Again?"
Hey, how can you ever associate the incredible, wonderful, incomparable The IT Crowd with a CSI spin-off? I expected better from you, Tim!
CSI: Cyber is going to be terrible.

Also, Jessica Biel, hands down!

Episode one of Backpackers was terrible, but episode two was pretty good.

Did you make the Elizabeth Rohm announcement in another brief?

And that news would be...?

I guess it's only important to L&O fans, or if you like her acting. She's been cast as an ADA on CBS' Stalker.

Fallon didn't move. He was using a temporary studio while studio 6B was being renovated for the Tonight Show.

The show moved from the West to East Coast.

Just finished The IT Guys so the "have you tried turing it off and on again" was awesome.

I think the problem with Backpackers is everybody knew it was a webseries and probably 90% of the people who wanted to watch it already have.. maybe they should've done something like aired all the previous content on one night and then started airing the new content the next week.

Oddly enough, it wasn't until Jessica Biel got those heavy bangs that everyone seemed to hate that I suddenly found her very attractive, which naturally, makes absolutely no sense at all.

The biggest comic-book award is the Eisner, thank you very much!
