Year after year, this becomes almost painfully unsurprising. Following an impressive three-season renewal for CBS comedy juggernaut 'The Big Bang Theory,' the network granted an additional 18 renewals to its drama and comedy lineup for 2014-15, including (but not limited to) 'Two and a Half Men,' '2 Broke Girls,' 'Elementary,' 'NCIS' and 'The Good Wife.' So, who's missing?
Summer may be gone, but who cares? It’s TV time! Fall TV 2013 will prove among the more exciting seasons in recent years, including everything from Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ premiere to the return of our beloved ‘Walking Dead’ for season 4, but with so many options to choose from, which TV is really must-see?
We break down the 20 can’t-miss premieres from the ABC to the NBC to the BBC, including those that will have us talking for months on end, and a score of saucy secrets from each of Fall TV’s best!
Whether you count yourself an 'Elementary' or 'Sherlock' fan, you had to admit that the CBS procedural managed to distinguish itself quite a bit from its spiritual predecessor, and with a much more accessible schedule. Case in point, the first photos from 'Elementary' season 2 premiere "Step Nine" have hit the web, featuring our first look at 'Amazing Spider-Man' star Rhys Ifans as Mycroft!
Just yesterday we learned of another classic Sherlock Holmes character to debut in 'Elementary' season 2, atop the reveal that 'The Amazing Spider-Man' star Rhys Ifans would take the iconic role of Mycroft Holmes for the London-set premiere this fall. Now, CBS has revealed the premiere title for 'Elementary' season 2's September 26 debut, and provided us our first look at Holmes and Watson back on the case!
The first season of CBS' modern Sherlock Holmes adaptation 'Elementary' gave us new spins on such famed Sir Arthur Conan Doyle characters as Moriarty, Irene Adler and Sebastian Moran, apart from Sherlock and Watson themselves, so who's the latest to sign on for season 2? Joining Rhys Ifans' Mycroft Holmes, Sean Pertwee has officially signed on for the literary role of Inspector Lestrade!
The first season finale of CBS' modern Sherlock Holmes drama 'Elementary' threw a major wrench into Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's canon with the reveal of Moriarty's true identity, but it seems the acclaimed procedural will keep things a bit more traditional with the introduction of Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller)'s older brother Mycroft. 'The Amazing Spider-Man' star Rhys Ifans will take the iconic role, but for how long?
The Upfronts may have passed us by with all of the major networks unveiling their 2013-14 lineups, but CBS has jumped ahead in the 2013 race by releasing its full fall premiere schedule. The new CBS lineup will premiere after the 2013 Emmy awards, kicking off with an hour-long final season premiere for 'How I Met Your Mother,' and a host of other changes.
Moving right along the major network pantheon, CBS is the latest to give out its lineup for fall 2013-2014 in advance of today's big Upfront presentation. No major shakeups, other than an expanded comedy block on Thursday nights and moves for both 'Person of Interest' and 'Hawaii Five-0,' but Chuck Lorre's 'Mike & Molly' will sit the fall out, while still producing a full season. Find out CBS' fall changes inside!
Now that 'Game of Thrones' star Natalie Dormer will begin her three-episode 'Elementary' arc tonight, leading up to next week's finale, the major question of the season lingers as to whether or not the modern Sherlock Holmes tale will finally introduce Sherlock's greatest nemesis, the enigmatic Moriarty. We can't say for sure, but at the very least, we know one thing! Sherlock's season 2 premiere will hop across the pond to film. Now the question is, what would bring Sherlock Holmes back to his previous stomping grounds?
The next few weeks will prove plenty busy as broadcast networks announce their new and returning programs, CBS in particular offering a tense competition for the relatively few slots available. Amid all the programming scramble, we've heard that the eye network is looking to develop spinoffs from its popular series 'Elementary' and 'Person of Interest,' but where might we find the new series?
