NBC Thursday Nights Might Get Shorter, Possibly Less Funny

NBC really loves to do the short seasons so much that perhaps the only saving grace to everyone’s critical and cult hero yet ratings challenged darlings on Thursday nights might be the route they choose.

According to Deadline via WarmingGlow, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, and Community are in the running to get shorter seasons with 30 Rock leading the way with 13-14 episodes for the smaller and most likely final season. Alec Baldwin has been very vocal about this being his final season and some of the episodes have gotten stale in the last few years in my opinion. However, just like with Chuck, they appear ready to send the show off the right way instead of letting it fade out into the night with no resolution like Alf (seriously, most random end to a series because Alf is basically screwed at the end, go watch it).

Also on the short season path could be P-Rex (what the cool kids call it) and Community. However, the shorter 13 episode season seems to be more likely for P-Rex [Ed. Note – No one calls it that] as opposed to Community. They are saying the chances for Community still run at 50-50 so we shall wait until the NBC Upfronts happen and the mass panic about people’s favorite show that no one watches reaches the boiling point. All I have to say is that if they bring back P-Rex, that’s cool but it’s time to shut The Office down. Used to love the show, now it’s just buried in my DVR for the last 8 episodes. I cannot defend that show anymore. Steve Carrell, we miss you.

I can’t let the post end on a bad note though, Whitney is probably going to be put out of its misery. Rejoice in that I guess.

Geeking Out: ‘Young Justice Invasion’

Welcome to Geeking Out. This is me, geeking out. It’s pretty self explanatory.

The second season of Young Justice (subtitled Invasion) premiered this morning, and it pretty much blew my mind to useless bits of nerdy gray stuff. I thought nothing could get better than the already stellar first season, where we were introduced to the Team, a group of former sidekicks running special ops missions for the Justice League. Now that already sounds pretty bad ass right? The original team consisted of Robin (Dick Grayson), Aqualad, Kid Flash, and Superboy, with new members Artemis and Miss Martian joining shortly after.

‘Todd & The Book of Pure Evil’ Has Been Cancelled…

I am upset.

That’s almost what this entire article was going to be. No lie. Three words and then a picture of a sad hamster or something.

I was distraught with the news that my favorite show had been cancelled. I’m not even saying favorite show right now, or favorite Canadian show. No, it has swiftly evolved into my FAVORITE show. And it has been cancelled by SPACE, the Canadian network who brought Todd to the small screen. Now if you’ve been a fan of Grizzly Bomb since the beginning, then you would know the site started when our Editor-in-Chief Dr. Kronner tried to save one of his favorite shows, Terriers. So I feel I am obligated to do the same for Todd & The Book of Pure Evil.

Ray Stevenson Cast in Dexter’s 7th Season

The show that lets us all stroke our dark side has a new cast member. Showtime’s serial killer drama Dexter is welcoming Ray Stevenson (Thor, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) to the show. According to LeftHandHorror Stevenson will play Issac, a Russian criminal who travels to Miami to figure out who killed one of the members of his organization. I don’t know if it is going to be another one of those situations like with Mos Def as Brother Sam. I got attached to his character, I was interested in the perspective he could give Dexter… at one point, I even thought that I would see Brother Sam kill with Dexter… but then he died. In fact, just about every interesting character on Dexter dies, other than obviously Dexter and his sister Deb.
