24 Has Officially Ended It's Day

24 Has Officially Ended It's Day I think we all saw this one coming eventually, you have heard the news that the show might be getting shut down by Fox because of how expensive it is to produce, Fox has shopped the show to other networks and not much has come of it. NBC took a bite at it but it look like nothing has come from it. The shows director/producer Jon Cassar let the world know on his Twitter account that the show was going to get canceled. News from the 24 set, the crew has been told that 24 has come to an end. There will b no season 9. It’s been a great run, thanx all 4 watching We all had fun with the show, been a great 8 years of drama and action, so let's hope another network picks it up to continue the run, and if not let's end it with a Bang.

"Torchwood” U.S. Version Coming To Fox

“Torchwood” U.S. Version Coming To Fox The project is from BBC Worldwide Prods., with original series creator Russell Davies writing the script. A more straight-faced spinoff of “Doctor Who,” “Torchwood” is about a covert group that investigates and fights alien activity. Two series aired domestically on BBC America as well as last year’s well reviewed stand-alone miniseries, “Children of Earth,” which broke all ratings records for the network. (If you're a fan of serious sci fi such as "Battlestar Galatica" and haven't seen "Children of Earth," rent it. You don't need to know anything about the series. And I know the previews for "Torchwood" can look silly. Trust me, it's terrific. Like "24" with aliens). Unlike U.S. adaptations that have gone awry, “Torchwood” fans can take comfort that the original producing team is on board. In addition to Davies, exec producers include Davies’ producing partner Julie Gardner (former head

Simon Cowell Recruiting Old Friend For X Factor

Simon Cowell Recruiting Old Friend For X Factor Simon Cowell is talking to familiar faces to sit beside him at the judges table on Fox's "The X Factor." Cowell is in discussions with his former "American Idol" co-star Paula Abdul and his current "X Factor" U.K. co-star Cheryl Cole for judging positions on the show, which launches on Fox in fall 2011. Hiring Abdul and Cole would assure a certain degree of comfortable chemistry between Cowell and other judges on the new series. Abdul in particular would allow Cowell to reform the heart of the longtime "Idol" judging team, which was split when Abdul quit the show in August amid contract dispute. This is Cowell's final season on "Idol." The judges on "X Factor" are if anything more crucial to the success of the show than on "Idol" because each mentors a group of singers and effectively becomes part of the competition rather than simply grading from the sid

'Glee' Helps Struggling Music Industry

'Glee' Helps Struggling Music Industry Its characters may feel like a bunch of unloved high-school misfits, but the quirky musical TV comedy " Glee " is putting smiles on the faces of music industry executives searching for new revenue in an era of plunging album sales. Two months into the 2009-10 TV season, "Glee" is drawing a weekly audience of 8.6 million viewers to the Fox television network. Fans have bought more than two million tunes sung by the show's cast on iTunes, and soundtracks are being compiled and sold in traditional stores. Revenues are being split among Fox and the record company, and artists and music publishers are being paid licensing fees for songs "Glee" uses in musical numbers in each episode. "Record labels have been desperate for new revenue," said Steve Knopper, contributing editor for Rolling Stone magazine. "They are trying to figure out any way to make money and one pretty reliable way is to sy
