The Upfront Bloodbath: Who came out unscathed?

If I were a real TV blogger, I would have watched the upfronts coverage with the same zeal that I watch Jake Gyllenhaal’s house through binoculars (on my Star Map).  BTW, Jake, you should have that mole looked at.

Luckily, Michael Ausiello has compiled a handy cheat sheet telling us which shows have gotten the final kiss of death and which have been saved the axe.  Take a look here.

There’s good news and there’s bad news — just like every season. If you’re like me, then you always want to hear the bad news first, so here goes:

Samantha Who? got cancelled, despite the fact that it was actually a really cute show and Christina Applegate is quickly becoming America’s-sweetheart-who-we-sometimes-forget-exists. The Sarah Conner Chronicles has also been cancelled. I didn’t stick with it, although some folks I know rave. On the other hand Scrubs will continue despite being way past its prime (let it die in peace).

The good news?

Chuck got picked up for 13 episodes, as did Dollhouse (which should be very pleasing to the whole Whedon cult). Also, Better Off Ted has gotten a stay of execution (I really can’t imagine that it’s going to take off, but there’s always hope).

Giveaway: Bullshit! — Season Six

I do an impression of libertarians. Basically, I just hold out my palm, lazily lift my eyebrows and say “Well, actually…” like I’m really bored.

But Penn Jillette seems like a libertarian who might not get on my last nerve. He and his trusty sidekick Teller have made six seasons of their show Bullshit — which appears to have been changed to just BS for logistical reasons.  Here’s a clip of what to expect from their show, which aims to take the wind out of the sails of hyped-up topics like the war on porn.

Here’s a clip…

In conjunction with the release of the show’s sixth season on DVD, we’re giving away a copy!  To enter, just e-mail tifaux -at- gmail -dot- com with the subject line “Less politics, more magic!”
