Wonderfalls – Still Wonderfully Sarcastic 10 Years Later

Wonderfalls Poster

Wonderfalls premiered on March 12th 2004, on FOX, at a time when the network was quick to cancel anything with less than stellar ratings (this Family Guy scene sums it up best). Admittedly Wonderfalls was hard to promote, as it dabbled in a variety of genres, but no worries, the show’s been off the air for 10 years and if you’ve been waiting for an invitation to check it out, well here it is.

PaleyFest 2014

 

From award shows to big TV events, on and off the screen, here’s all the other things going on besides your regularly scheduled programming.

The Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour is already underway, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty more announcements to be made regarding your favorite networks, beloved TV shows, and future programming. All of the ‘big’ news will be covered by the major entertainment sites, but Deadline is a pretty good source for all of the nitty-gritty.

And if you aren’t a TV critic, but wish you could be there I recommend following these people on Twitter for the pseudo-front-row experience: Todd VanDerWerff from The AV Club, Daniel Fienberg from HitFix.com, Eric Goldman from IGN.com, and Eric Deggans from NPR.

This Sunday is The Golden Globe Awards, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be hosting the shindig again. If that’s isn’t enough of a reason to tune in then I don’t know what is.

Less than a week later is the 20th Annual Screen Actor Guild Awards. It should be interesting to see if Breaking Bad can clean up for it’s final season.

In February the TV landscape switches gears and sports take center stage with The Super Bowl XLVIII and The Winter Olympics. For better or worse, the NBC family of channels (NBC, USA, NBC Sports, CNBC, and MSNBC) will once again be handling all of the coverage for the winter games and with a pretty sizable time zone difference between the US and Sochi it should be interesting to see if we get more or less live coverage. Watching tape-delayed events during prime time for the 2012 Summer Olympics was rather anti-climatic after the Internet spoiled almost all of the results.

The line-up for the 2014 PaleyFest was recently announced and its pretty sweet. Some of the highlights include Veronica Mars kicking things off just one day before it officially hits the big screen, a 10th anniversary Lost panel, and a farewell to How I Met Your Mother. New shows like Orange Is The New Black, Sleepy Hollow, and Masters of Sex will also being making their festival debut. The annual event is held in Los Angeles so I’ve never tried to go, but most panels are live streamed so fear-not non-California dwelling TV fans. The panels usually make their way to Hulu too, so there’s a few ways to enjoy the PaleyFest without the travel expenses.

Other things to look forward to in 2014 include upfronts, San Diego Comic Con, and the ATX Television Festival.

Fall 2013 TV Guide: Sunday Night

Fall 2013 TV Guide: Sunday Night

TV Schedule Fall 2013 Sunday

New TV Shows on Sunday Nights

Sunday nights are jam-packed with returning network staples this year. Only ABC is using the night to launch a new series – Betrayal, which will air at 10pm, after Revenge. It seems that ABC is sticking with the counter-programming strategy against football.

Animation Domination

On Sunday nights FOX must subscribe to the ‘if it’s not broke, don’t fix it’ motto since The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, and American Dad all return.

Although it won’t happen until Fall 2014, there’s a Family Guy Simpsons crossover episode to look forward to. Apparently Seth MacFarlane’s Griffin family will be taking a road trip to Springfield.

A Night of Drama

Joining Betrayal on Sunday nights are Once Upon a Time, Revenge, The Good Wife, and The Mentalist.

As a fan of Revenge I was particularly pleased to hear that the new showrunner plans to simplify season 3 by cutting back on the numerous nonsensical subplots and to focus more on the revenging.

However, I’ve got less good news for fans of The Mentalist, apparently this season will be the last for Amanda Righetti and Owain Yeoman a.k.a. special agents Grace Van Pelt and Wayne Rigsby.

One last fun fact about Sunday night TV – with the exception of Sunday Night Football on NBC, all other TV shows will return September 29th. Better make room on your DVR, I told you it was going to be a busy night.
