A Justified Community
FX (ended 2015)


IS IT JANUARY YET?

... I love October because October means Justified is back in production. And that means soon there will be new Justified teasers, and eventually new episodes altogether—so yeah, October kind of rocks. A couple weeks ago, Jere Burns was upped to a series regular; yesterday, Michael Rapaport was cast as Dale Crowe, the leader of the Florida-based Crowe family (and yes, he's related to everyone's favorite four-kidneyed idiot, Dewey Crowe). Today, Alicia Witt (Friday Night Lights) and Edi Gathegi (House) have joined the upcoming fifth season as Wendy Crowe, Dale's sexy paralegal sister, and Jean Baptiste, a Haitian criminal in the employ of the Crowe family, respectively. None of this, however, tells me what Boyd Crowder's up to. [Deadline]


BUSINESS TIME

... Ratings hurt my brain, especially when every network seems to be claiming it won Premiere Week. After trying to make sense of all the press releases, I've decided to take it to the people and put it to a vote. Let's completely ignore all of the ratings numbers from last week (and the week before, when Fox debuted many of its new series) because we all know Nielsen ratings are crap anyway, and you tell me which network you think won based on which shows you found enjoyable. Ready? Go!

... After suffering a Dancing With the Stars-related knee injury last week, Bill Nye took to the floor on Monday night with some robot-inspired dance moves designed to disguise his limited mobility. Unfortunately for Bill, he was voted off. All this means now is that he can once again focus on what's really important: his rivalry with Ed Begley, Jr. [E! Online]

...  Oh well now this is just pure laziness. ABC is combining Nashville and Once Upon a Time and making a fairy-tale musical comedy. Galavant is from Dan Fogelman (The Neighbors) and centers on a prince who wants revenge against the king who stole his one true love. We're doomed. [THR]

... As of today, you can now watch a plethora of the most recent seasons of several NBC shows on Netflix. New additions to the streaming service include the final seasons of 30 Rock and The Office, Season 4 of Parenthood, and Season 5 of Parks and Recreation. [Variety]

... I like to think I've at least heard of 95 percent of the scripted series currently on air, but I'll admit this one threw me: Hallmark has renewed its first-ever primetime series Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove for Season 2. It stars Andie MacDowell as a small-town judge and Dylan Neal as the town newspaper editor. Have you any of you watched this? [THR]

... Saturday Night Live alum Will Forte, along with Phil Lord and Chris Miller (21 Jump Street), just sold a new project to Fox with a put pilot commitment. The Last Man On Earth is about two strangers who must work together to ensure the survival of the human race. I do hope that the other person is a woman, otherwise we're screwed. [Deadline]

... ABC's Shark Tank, which has consistently performed pretty well for the Alphabet network on Friday nights, is heading to CNBC for it's first off-network run. The series recently premiered its fifth season, and will make its first appearance on CNBC premiere in January 2014. [CNBC via press release]

... Discovery Channel has ordered 12 episodes of the new series Dukes of Haggle to debut tonight (my God, that was fast). The series, about four rival teams of barterers in the south, is yet another entry in Discovery's long line of wacky reality series that most of America will probably love for no other reason than they lost the remote six months ago and now can't figure out how to change the channel. [Deadline]


CASTING NEWS

... Jennie Garth is said to be circling Tori Spelling's new ABC Family comedy pilot Mystery GirlsThe project follows Spelling, who plays a former starlet, as she's roped into solving crimes with her former mystery TV show co-star—the role that Garth is supposed to be eyeing—when a crazy person who's witnessed a crime will only speak to TV's Mystery Girls. If they can solve the Pretty Little Liars mystery of who the hell "A" is once and for all, I'm all for it. [TV Line]

... Someone over at The Crazy Ones is really good at their job, because now Ed Asner is booked to guest-star on the new Robin Williams- and Sarah Michelle Gellar-starring comedy. He'll play Glen "Mr. Finger" Hastings, a commercial actor who SMG's Sydney finds charming. [TV Guide]

... Patrick Fischler (Lost, Mad Men) is Suit-ing up as Harvey Specter's former Harvard classmate. His character, A. Eliot Stemple, had a tenuous relationship with Law School Harvey and now it seems that relationship will plague Big Shot Lawyer Harvey when the series returns for the second half of its third season this winter. [TV Line]

... This one might be a spoiler for fans of The Mindy Project (I haven't seen any of Season 2 yet, so I don't know), but Saturday Night Live's Vanessa Bayer is headed to the series as a possible new love interest for Danny. [TV Line]

Michael Rapaport and now Alicia Witt are going to be Crowe family? That's NOT BELIEVABLE. Alicia Witt is super fair-skinned and red-headed... and attractive.

I'm voting CBS for winner, they rolled out everything in a short period and most of it didn't faceplant. ABC rolled out this and that piecemeal, some of it didn't really land that well.

Oh man, Tori Spelling plus Jennie Garth as former tv starlets solving crimes together, as a former 1990s teen I would totally watch the 90210 girls solve crimes - the first could be "who killed Brenda's career?"

Ed Asner on The Crazy Ones sounds just great, but unfortunately the pilot was weak sauce so I'm passing.

I voted for ABC because looking back at the last week I watch more shows on that channel in comparison to the others (Agents of SHIELD, Nashville and Revenge). Having said that, that fairy-tale musical comedy, Galavant, sounds like a horrible idea ABC.

Yay, Justified. So good.

I love seeing Justified news, but would love to see Justified episodes more. I miss Raylon.
I dont know how I feel about Shark Tank jumping to cnbc. I never watched it before it was on ABC, or the Dragons Den on BBC. It fit perfectly on the friday night lineup and Saturday download availabiity in case you missed it schedule, but I don't know that I would hunt for it. And I almost never watch CNBC, I worked in an airport for a while where that is all they showed and I avoid them like the plague.

I'm not sure which shows are on which network because I don't watch them on a tv, but if I had to guess I'd say either Fox or ABC...

My vote would be useless. I don't watch any of those networks.

I further support Justified's casting decisions as Alicia Witt is definitely pretty and while I didn't really care for Edi Gathegi (or his character at least) in Family Tools I did like him in X-men First Class.

In my mind Fox won the fall season hands down. Sleepy Hollow, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Almost Human and Enlisted which I'm convinced will be good shows based on their trailers. I was super looking forward to Sleepy Hollow based on it's trailer and wasn't disappointed though I have only seen the pilot so far (been jam packing Monks before Netflix removed the show.)

I watch once upon a time and glee and even the neighbors because my mom likes them but I don't think there's any way in hell you could get me to watch Galavant.

30 Rock is absolutely oen of the funniest shows to have ever existed, the office and parks and recreation were / are pretty great and I watch parenthood, but effing Netflix got rid of monk while I was still on season 5 and possibly other shows to make room for these I assume and I strongly disapprove.

I would like to see will forte in something again as long as it's not as bad as the brothers solomon.

I love vanessa Bayer and I love the mindy project (at least when james franco isn't recurring, is he gone yet?) so this is great news!

Man...Edi Gathegi is a great actor, he only took the Family Tools job because, lets be honest, it's an easy job for an actor of his caliber. In fact, many actors/actresses are taking jobs that are beneath them, esp on network Tv. A lot of them have been classically trained and would love to do great dramas and such. But everyone's gotta eat, so I understand their decisions. Its all financially based.

Regarding Last Man on Earth - "I do hope that the other person is a woman, otherwise we're screwed." Don't you mean to say we are Un-screwed?

I watch Cedar Cove. Shoot me if you must, but it's actually decent, particularly on a Saturday at 6pm dinnertime. It's light and I don't need to pay heavy attention except this week I missed something important about a character I have to try and rewatch for. Bruce Boxleitner (Babylon 5) is a recurring character now. After that, I go to On Demand for Under the Dome, Haven, and Sleepy Hollow. Cedar Cove is a good lead in for those. Funny, or oddly, enough the TV Guide listing on their website never notes the show as "New" in their listings. It's almost like they don't notice either. Then again, their listings have dropped in quality over the last year or so, as though they're burning out maintaining it properly.

Ok maybe if ABC didn't just make OUAT:Wonderland another fairy tale show may have worked, but now that they have 3 it's completely ridiculous!

ABC had great Premier week with Agents of SHIELD

but Fox won the week by its all comedy shows and Sleepy Hollow even though dad sucked

CBS better watch out , or they will end up third place this fall

CBS is not doing great this year, which is a shock. While Crazy Ones premiered great, it did have the Big Bang lead in, We are Men flopped, and Mom did mediocre. Its once dominate Monday comedy block is no more, HIMYM is their top show on Mondays and its ending. But then again it still has NCIS...

ABC has to win for the Agents of SHIELD numbers alone right?
