Nick Offerman back on my TV? Well, it's not the Offerman Woodshop Co-Op show I dreamed of, but this will do.

Looks interesting. Interesting use of Willem Dafoe's hair style.

That actually looks like something decent.

Well, looks like “Roseanne” will be returning this fall, except it’ll be “The Conners”. Judging by the tag line and how last season’s finale ended, they’ve killed Roseanne off. 

I’ll be honest, aside from the dumb political shit, I quite enjoyed the show. So, I guess we’ll see how this plays out. 

I think it’s funny that the original series ended with Dan being dead, and now that they’ve re-resurrected it, she’ll now be dead.

Every other show is just some other successful show format combined with pot and/or hipsters.  Is there a stoner house flipping show on Viceland yet?

Yeah really. What jacked up dudes are to Vince, stoners and hipster shit are to Viceland.

They've still yet to announce a UK date for Yellowstone :/

I've just been watching the last series of Fargo. Carrie Coon is one of my favourite actors working today and its made me realise how much I really miss the Leftovers. In hindsight I think it might be one of my fave series, the first season was kind of meh but those last two were so powerful on all levels. I wonder if Damon Lindeloff's involvement tarnished the show (which is fucking stupid as he's probably the reason it worked so well narratively), blows my mind it never got any respect

I was joking when I suggested this in the locked thread, but since they're actually doing it,  I'm going to disappointed if Sandy Duncan doesn't at least have a cameo in the season premiere.

Rosanne's baggage will drag that show down.  I predict it will bomb.

I am amused by the premise that they killed off Mrs. Conner.

Someone at TV Land is probably already diligently working on a pitch for a Charlie Sheen/Roseanne two hander sitcom where they're guardian angels who solve people's problems and make hundreds of jokes that allude to who their characters were in their previous lives before they died.

Timeless continued to not live up to its name. It has been cancelled... again

Apparently they will do a TV movie to wrap it up

So, is Snowfall on FX worth checking out? I didn't see the first season.

I just saw today that Nickleoden brought back Double Dare, with Marc Summers.  I did something right as my kids are hyped for it.  I mean, I'm looking forward to it too, but yeah.

There wasn't an ad for another Tony Bourdain during this episode in Bhutan but they are airing an ad for a new show airing at 8 on Sundays...

American Jail

Fuck you, CNN. 

BTW, one thing Tony didn't factor in was definitely being eulogized by fucking Don Lemon on national television

Because it was the planned season finale. He was shooting Season 12 when he died, and CNN is unsure of what to do with the footage.

Ah, thanx bud. Hopefully they can scrape together some eps, it'd be a shame to go to waste. As far as the France ep though... well, that should be left up to Ripert.

I'm still steamed that they replaced a show inherently about freedom with a show about imprisonment. It's so crass and inappropriate. Why not just wait and put The History of Comedy in that spot?

History of Comedy S2 doesn't premiere for another 3 weeks. I guess they could have bumped it up, but I don't think it really matters. By all accounts, American Jail is a documentary film, not a series. Maybe I'm mistaken on that, however.

I think you're taking this a little too personal.

Apparently I missed Lemon announcing this would be the last episode of the season because I had to take a shit right then. My bad

And as far as taking it personally? Yeah, sure, I'll own up to that. 

EDIT: And of course Casey's right, it's a movie not a series, which takes the sting off a bit

It is a pretty good series, but the content is rather jarring.  I suppose it is trying to get as close to Netflix levels of uncensored content as it can in order to compete with Narcos.

I legit thought my boo had flipped to a softcore porn movie when we watched the first episode.

I'm 5 episodes into the Get Shorty series and, man, it's really fucking good (and not just because of the serious amount of man love I have for Chris O'Dowd), I haven't read the book or seen the Travolta film so have no idea how it compares but, yeah, definately recommended viewing.
