    Watched Hawaii 5-0’s crossover episode.I think it was really good.But still missing AOL.Cant wait to see him back!

    I think GG will get 13 episodes for season 6 and will share its timeslot with Cult. I hope the CW are wise enough to launch Cult in the fall and save GG for spring premiere like they did with OTH.

    NBC has wasted The Voice lead-in scheme, AGAIN!
    I bet NBC is regretting that Smash renewal now that it’s touching below 2.0.

    But why in world do you care that much?

    People think Castle won’t get a full season 5 pickup are high. TNT deal assures this. And as a huge Castle fan I would be perfectly happy if next year was the last. A nice 100 plus episodes and Castle/Beckett being ‘happy’, would wrap it all up in a pretty bow. Shows stay on too long, go out on your own terms I say.

  • Hades

    None of the new CW shows deserve a second season but unfortunatley for the CW they havent got the money to replace every failing show so chances are one will be given a pity/save face/defaul renewal. I’m sure if the CW can cancel HOD, Ringer, TSC, Nikita they will. Not long to go untill we find out, I’m quite looking forward to it and absolutely hoping for a CW massacre.

  • John A

    Castle will be renewed. No point discussing that but it will probably be its final season.

  • rob60990

    Castle is 100% being renewed no questions about it.

  • craigcuk

    Can anyone please explain how that episode of Castle wasn’t a Halloween edition?

  • joko ono

    it’s not going to be the final season of Castle,people!

  • Chris

    @Lisa–of course Castle will be renewed, but ONLY because it’s had the good fortune of a strong lead-in and weak competition for basically its entire run. Take that away, the show dies. And ABC should, in fact, take that away, and give it to a show that can deliver better ratings in that timeslot.

    If it dies next season, it can hardly be considered a successful show.

    And its future in syndication is limited, at best.

  • Chris

    Honestly, people keep confusing renewal with success.

    Think how successful Chuck was. How successful Fringe is. How successful Whitney probably will be.

    Some shows are just born lucky–and need to be. ;)

    House’s the C Word was awesome. RSL’s performance should garner him an Emmy with the same going for HL’s direction and acting. It was absolutely superb television. It was classic House. Those H/W scenes in House’s apt reminded me so much of a black and white movie, the music, the lighting, the dialogue. Just beautifully lit and directed.

  • waris

    House is awesome…but not good numbers…audience suck

  • Sunshine

    @Chris–you know the old saying, “Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt”?

    I think this applies to you. Your biases and prejudices constantly keep you from an open mind regarding certain shows. Having worked in TV in LA for 15 years, I can tell you that anytime a show gets a pickup,either 13 or full, it’s a success. Over 90% of the projects pitched never even make it air and out of those shows, only 20 to 25% get a renewal. Learn your facts.

  • Lindsay

    PLEASE renew Hart of Dixie. It’s my favourite show.
