Finally decided to sit down and watch the first episode of Netflix's original series, "House of Cards." Been flipping past it for about a week now. Boy, oh boy... it's looking good so far, only judging by the pilot. Kevin Spacey is a beast. That's all I have to say on that subject.
The entire season has been released, so I'll probably spend this week getting through it.
CBS announced today that it has renewed 18 returning series for the 2013-2014 broadcast season. Renewed shows include "NCIS," "The Big Bang Theory," "Elementary" and "60 Minutes," the top-rated program/drama, comedy, new series and newsmagazine, respectively.
The renewals, comprising 16 hours of its primetime schedule, include four comedies, nine dramas, three reality series and two newsmagazines. The returning shows encompass every night of the week and every hour, many of which rank #1 in their time period and some which rank #1 for the entire night.
The renewed comedies also include the final season of "How I Met Your Mother" as well as "2 Broke Girls" and "Mike & Molly."
Among the other returning dramas are "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "NCIS: Los Angeles," "Person of Interest," "Elementary," "Hawaii Five-O," "The Mentalist," "Blue Bloods," and "The Good Wife."
The Network's three Emmy Award-winning reality series - "The Amazing Race," "Survivor," and "Undercover Boss" - also return with new editions.
In addition to "60 MINUTES," "48 Hours," Saturday's #1 non-sports program, will return in the fall.
CBS and Warner Bros. Television are currently in discussions regarding another season for "Two and a Half Men."
I've watched a lot of TV in the last 2-3 days. First, I caught up with a showed called "Graceland." It's a police drama on USA, but it's got an interesting story, and it's a bit different than your average cop drama, which is why I like it.
Also, I'm really starting to like "The White Queen" on Starz. Didn't think I would, but the show moves really well. I'm on episode 4 or 5 and it seems like an entire season has gone by, and there's still much more to take in.
