LAMB Review 'Weirdly Special Movie'

Rumors Abound About Constantine

Showrunner Says It's Not Over Yet By David Clark Gossip has abounded in recent months regarding the cult NBC show Constantine . Since the network announced early renewals that did not mention Constantine fans of the series have feared a premature end to the dry humored hero. In a bewildered attempt to placate fan fears Daniel Cerone took to Twitter and explained the show’s status. Over a series of tweets Cerone revealed NBC’s renewal press release in February was not fully inclusive of all the networks intentions moving forward. Cerone seemed surprised by the assumption the show was already canceled. “NBC made some early pickups but #Constantine not canceled” . According to Daniel, NBC has yet to even hear a pitch regarding the second season of Constantine. “We'll pitch them our plans for 2nd season in May. Then they decide,” said Cerone.

Howard Stern Going To iTunes?

Where Will He End Up? Howard Stern could broadcast live on Sirius XM for the last time on Dec. 16. After that, he heads for his annual end-of-year vacation and there still is no decision as to whether he’ll renew his contract, which expires on Dec. 31 and sets Sirius XM back a hefty $100 million every year. Speaking at a UBS investor conference in New York on Monday, Sirius XM CFO David Frear said he is “hopeful” that Stern sticks with the company, but hinted that if he does it would be for less money. Frear also acknowledged that there could be other offers Stern is considering, maybe even one from Apple to do a show on iTunes . “He could decide that he doesn’t want to get up that early in the morning. That he’d like to do a shorter show. That he’d like to do it somewhere else,” Frear said. “The Internet, whether it’s through iTunes or something else, is always a possibility.” Apple did not respond to requests for a comment. And it's not only Stern who is expected to

Two months into the 2009-10 TV season, "Glee" is drawing a weekly audience of 8.6 million viewers to the Fox television network.
