CBS Renews 18 Primetime Shows for the 2013-2014 Season
For the shows that Mrs. Tibber and I watch, there are no real surprises, even about the shows on the bubble at this point.
I thought we might hear more about NCIS: Red, but that likely is coming in the announcements of new shows.
Good. I do really like this show. This is sort of my "House" replacement for the time being.
Hear, hear ... +1
I guess I see that. Both have central characters that are annoying as well as brilliant. But it seems to end there.
Whenever I see Watson or the Captain or Detective Bell getting annoyed I find that amusing. Whenever House did something annoying I just wanted to punch him. Holmes does nothing out of meanness, while House was just mean for the sake of being mean, to everybody.
Holmes has a social component that makes him annoying but it stems from his process and is not really meant to be annoying, and which he really does not have all that much control over, while House is just a jackass; unlike Holmes he has the ability to soften the edges of what he does that is annoying, but he choses not to, because, he's just a jackass. He enjoys annoying people and takes perverse pleasure in being annoying, on purpose because he needs to feel superior.
In real life, Holmes would get away with his behavior, but I think House would get accidentally nudged down an elevator shaft.
I couldn't agree more. I quit House long ago because he was such a jack ass. The plot lines could not overcome my distaste for House.
Which is why we love 'em.
"Elementary" will be moved to 10 pm, Sunday March 20, as part of a schedule shuffle discussed in another thread. According to Deadline Hollywood this may not be as bad as it seems:
The problem will be that during football season many will have to set their timer with a two hour extension to get it on the DVR because of games running much longer than expected.
Well we can hope that next season they put it back onto a week night.
PBS with Australian shows of Miss Fisher's Murders Mysteries and The Doctor Blake Mysteries makes me wish we could get all of the worlds English shows instead of being restricted to just USA broadcasts.
Acorn TV is a great resource for a lot of those shows. Can't thank phrelin enough for putting me onto it awhile back. :up:
Yeah, but the only player I have that works with it is my computer. So I haven't signed up yet.

Need a channel to rebroadcast old British TV shows, instead of all these channels rebroadcasting recently cancel American shows.
Is my memory as bad as I think it is or do you have an Amazon Fire TV Stick? If so see Acorn TV on Amazon Fire TV (and Stick). I must admit for streaming I now use my Roku 3 for everything as it is hardwired to my network.
I do have both the box and the stick. When I checked 2 weeks ago, Amazon was not one of the devices.

I bought the first 3 seasons of Elementary via Amazon Instant video, since didn't have dvr for last 3 years. But this season I have Tivo and have been recording them, I do not want to deal with padding. So I guess I will buy this season as well, have all seasons in one place.
I'm a little concerned to see Elementary moved to Sunday. While The Good Wife had its entire run there, and was successful although not exactly a barn burner, it still seems like short shrift by the network. They know this is a slot that makes it difficult to record the show, and they don't seem to be concentrating on whether it is successful or not, just like TGW. Part of this is due to the Shondaland juggernaut on ABC, but it seems like Elementary has now inherited the 'prestige' mantle from TGW. While that is good, and the show is critically acclaimed, it does little for its survival chances.
I am happy they renewed it, but if it stays on Sunday I think there is a good chance it gets its order cut from 22 to 13, or that it gets a half season either in the fall or the spring. Depends on what else is in the quiver, of course, but I do not see Elementary as a 'protected' show, Tiffany network prestige status notwithstanding.
