Simpsons Renewed For Seasons 27 And 28

The news recently concerning The Simpsons on FOX has been about the longtime voice of twenty or so of the characters Harry Shearer leaving the show. The discussion in the press has been about replacing him or even in some places canceling the show as his voices are such huge of the show. Well fans of Homer, Bart and the rest of the family don’t need to worry as FOX have announced they are renewing the longest running scripted television show for seasons 27 and 28. The show which started as a series of crudely drawn animated skits in the Tracy Ullman Show has won 31 Emmy Awards, an Academy Award for a theatrical short as well as being the first animated show to win a Peabody Award among its many other awards during its groundbreaking run. It’s amazing that a show that has been on for so many years with reruns of old shows on constantly still is one of the highest rated shows on television a tribute to the shows voice actors, creators and writers with no end in sight for the perennial favorite. After the end of the 28th season the show will have produced an amazing 625 episodes  over its long run. I wouldn’t bet against the Simpsons being renewed once again and hitting the 30 year mark another huge milestone for a show that has broken so many records.

The Muppets To Return To TV

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfJkusicBa4

As a young kid in the 1970’s i remember fondly the original ‘Muppet Show’ which was a variety show with a different celebrity guest each week interacting with the muppets. Now after several movies over the years ABC has resurrected the muppets with a new show this fall simply called ‘the muppets.’ The new show other than having one of the best trailers for new fall shows also shows the muppets outside their variety show in their personal lives and interacting with humans which is a different twist on the original concept. I don’t know if this concept will work but the clips shown in the video above do look interesting and funny so if lt should be a show to check out when it premieres in the fall.

Full House Reboot Coming To Netflix

Its finally official the reboot of the corny class family show ‘Full House’ is coming to Netflix after several months of rumors. The shows reboot has been given the go ahead by the online service with thirteen new episodes of the former ABC comedy. In the above video of an appearance on the Jimmie Kimmel Live show, John Stamos  describes that first episode will be more of a reunion show and then later episodes showcasing three of the girls from the original show with their kids, so kind of Full House the next generation. The show should garner an audience from people that grew up with the show and now may have their own kids to show the new Full House too; But it should be interesting to see how a younger generation that hasn’t seen the original takes to the show which will ultimately have to stand as a new show if it wants to be renewed past the original thirteen episodes. {Video Courtesy Of Jimmie Kimmel LIve}

Game Of Thrones Sansa Gets Revenge?

Tonight at 9pm is the third episode of season five of Game Of Thrones on HBO and it looks like from the trailer above that Sansa Stark may get some payback for the horrible things the Lannister’s and others have done to her family. Since Sansa went off with Littlefinger her appearance and demeanor has slowly gotten darker and, it will be interesting to see if she will take the chance to strike back at the people that hurt her family. One note we did not receive screener copies from HBO and would not look at the illegal copies for the first four episodes so we will enjoy the show as its released on HBO like most of the audience. {Video Courtesy Of HBO}

Bruce Jenner Tonight At 9pm

Tonight at 9pm ABC Olympic great Bruce Jenner hangs out and has a sit down interview with Diane Sawyer in a two hour prime time special. The interview itself was filmed back in February around the time rumors were going around that Bruce Jenner planed to get a sex change to become a woman; I don’t or not the rumors are true or not and if we will find out tonight or not but either way ABC has milked this story to the hilt. The ABC network has set aside two hours of prime time for this interview but with Bruce Jenner’s popularity because of the Kardashian’s cable show and, the huge ratings likely for people tuning in to see if he is going to change gender it should do well for ABC. {Video Courtesy of ABC News}

Orange Is The New Black Trailer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njy0dFFlpAc

Above is the official trailer of ‘Orange Is The New Black’ which returns to Netflix on June 12th for its third season. The critically acclaimed drama about life behind the walls of a women’s prison has become a big hit for Netflix and should get big viewership as we head in to the generally slower viewership over the Summer months for television. The viewership is lower at this time because most people are busy outdoors and doing other things but i wonder with more shows being available on demand such as this one available when we are free if the Summer drop off will be less pronounced in the future. {Video Courtesy Of Netflix}
