Comic-Con TV Roundup

Another San Diego Comic-Con came to an end this Sunday and it came with so much TV news and trailers. It seemed like TV was really the star of the con and for the first time overtook film at the big event. There were first looks at highly anticipated new series, teasers for upcoming seasons and news on some of our favorite long running series.  Take a look at all the trailers and enjoy.

Legion – FX

FX’s series Legion is a new X-Men series from Marvel that had its coming out party at Comic-Com this weekend with the release of its first trailer. The series is an origin story of David Haller, who comic book fans know as the mutant Legion. The series will premiere some time in 2017.

Thanksgiving Marathons To Feast On

Thanksgiving. The time for family, food and endless amounts of television. I love Thanksgiving because as I come down from my food coma, I can unwind on the couch and watch any one of the zillion marathons that run that weekend. Here are some that might whet your appetite.

Awkward – MTV – Friday 9am – 10pm. MTV is going to run both seasons of this hilarious show.

James Bond Movie Marathon – Syfy – Midnight Thursday – 5:30am Saturday. They do this marathon every year and I always catch at least 3 Bond movies during this time. Love them.

Beverly Hills 90210 – SoapNet – Friday 8pm – 1am. This 5 hour marathon is going to focus on the roller coaster  that was  Kelly and Dylan’s relationship, starting with the episode where Kelly and Dylan hooked up while Brenda was away in Paris.

Friday Night Lights – ESPN Classic – Friday 1 – 11pm. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! Anyone who reads even a bit of this blog knows I STAN HARD for this show. ESPN is airing Season 5, the last season, of the show. Clear Eyes. Full Hearts. Can’t Loose.

Castle – TNT – Thursday 10am – 11pm. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! TNT just started airing Castle in syndication and they are doing a nice marathon of season 2. This is a great opportunity to check out some of the early Caskett (Castle & Beckett) tension and what makes this show so much fun to watch.

Breaking Amish – TLC – Thursday 11am-9pm. Never watched this show but I heard it’s good so marathon here I come.

General Hospital – SoapNet – Thursday 7pm-12am. SoapNet is calling their 5 hour marathon “Quartermania.” They will be airing Thanksgiving episodes that center on those crazy Quartermaines. This will be a nice way to look back at the better years of the show.

Oprah’s Next Chapter – OWN – Sunday 2-10pm. Eight episodes of Next Chapter featuring Stephen Colbert (The Colbert Report), Kelsey Grammer (Boss), Usher, Fergie, Lady Gaga and Jennifer Hudson before the new episode with Justin Bieber at 9pm/8c.

The First 48 – A&E – Thursday 3pm – Friday 4am. If you really want to waste the day away put on an episode of this gem and you will never leave the couch. I always have to cautious with this show because before I know it I’ve been sucked in.

Law & Order: SVU – USA – Saturday 12pm – 2am. No weekend is complete without an SVU marathon.  They usually run this for a couple of hours on Sundays but this weekend they start a day early. Be sure to catch-all the old Benson and Stabler episodes.

Fringe – Science – Friday 9:30am – Saturday 3am; Saturday 10am – Sunday 3am. With this show ending its run on FOX this January, relive all the memorable moments from the beginning of the series. I am going to be all over this one.

What To Watch: September 21

10/9c – SyFy – Haven – Season 3 Premiere. The scary mysteries and odd eccentricities of this small coastal Maine town will continue to unfold picking up immediately after the events of the season two finale with Audrey having been kidnapped; Nathan warned against pursuing a romantic relationship with Audrey; and Duke  seemingly engaged in a fight to the death with Nathan after he discovers his family lineage is to kill Haven citizens with Troubles. Like this show glad its back. Sad that it’s during the fall and not the summer because if I have to cut something because of lack of time to watch this would be one of them.

10/9c – TLC – Secret Princes – Series Premiere. TLC explores what happens when four members of international royalty leave their countries to live, work and search for love in America. This show reminds me of a cross between Coming To America and Joe Millionaire. I thought TLC stood for The Learning Channel. What happened to that?

Show Premieres and Returns for Wednesday 1/11/12

Lots premiering tonight. Many NBC shows are back as well as an award show and a couple of big dramas.


One Tree Hill (CW) – Final Season Premiere. Haven’t really watched this show since Chad Michael Murray and Hilary Burton left but it was one of my guilty pleasures. Only a hand full of people knew I watched this show. Anyway this is the premiere of the ninth and final season of this show. So fans of this show get to watching. There are only going to be 13 episodes this season.

Whitney (NBC) – Winter return. New time slot. Many people hate this show. I don’t hate it but I don’t like it either. I don’t know why I watch this show because it really isn’t funny at all but I like Whitney Cummings and feel like I should support lol.


Are You There, Chelsea? (NBC) – Series Premiere. I love Chelsea Handler and love the book this show is based on. That being said I don’t know how well this show is going to. Laura Prepon (That 70’s Show) plays a 20 something year old Chelsea Handler, while Handler herself plays her older sister, Sloane.


The People’s Choice Awards (CBS) – The Big Bang Theory‘s Kaley Cuoco is the host for the night for this awards show which like its name says is voted on by the people or 13 year old children.

Harry’s Law (NBC) – Winter return. This show is an ok show. I like some of the cast members but it just seemed really boring so I stopped watching last season. Tonight’s episode has Adam and Cassie represent a troubled woman who exacts vigilante justice against men who abuse women by dressing up as Wonder Woman.


Face Off (SyFy) – Season Premiere. Never watched this show before but I just discovered that such a show exist. I shouldn’t be surprised. There is a reality show for pretty much everything. This show has a bunch of prosthetic makeup artists compete to create prosthesis like those found in horror and sci-fi movies. The challenge for this episode is to re-imagine the characters from the movie, The Wizard of Oz.

The Challenge: Battle of The Exes Special (MTV) – YES!!!!!!!! I hate Real World now but I LOVE me a challenge. This time kind of like they did with Rivals at the last challenge, they have put exes together that were either serious relationship or just a hookup. There are some people on here that are pushing 40 now and were on the Real World and Road Rules in the late 90s and early 00s but I mean I wouldn’t work if I had no discernible talent and MTV kept sending me on paid vacations to exotic locales and giving me a bunch of money and prizes.

Law and Order: SVU (NBC) – Winter return. I haven’t watched at all this season. I just can’t get over the fact that Stabler (Chris Meloni) isn’t there anymore. I’ll catch it at some point. USA runs marathons of this show all the time. Tonight’s episode, the team tries to investigate the rape of an actress in an interactive theater production that happened on stage, that the audience believes is part of the show. They hit a dead-end in their investigation when they learn the show’s director gave the audience — including the assailant — masks to wear during the performance.

What’s On Tonight: Friday Sept 16

Fridays are usually the nights where they send shows to die a slow painful death so there really isn’t anything to watch tonight.  Next Friday are the premieres of Fringe, Blue Bloods, Supernatural and A Gifted Man so there will be plenty.
