Comic Book Jobs: L.A. Interns

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials,

InternsLooking to kick off 2011 with an internship?

A Los Angeles-based comic book publisher is looking for two interns in two different departments.

The first one is for a Web/Programming Intern for someone who can create websites, do web programming, and is SEO savvy. It’s an unpaid internship in their IT department.

The second one is for a Marketing intern who can “bring the goods.” That means “an aggressive, personable, internet savvy, marketing intern to do a little bit of everything.” This includes the essential social media, web updates, help out at trade shows.

Details for both internships are at the links. If you’re ready to punch 2010 in the face and jump into the warm embrace of 2011, get your resume ready.

Good luck, interns!

Warner Pulls Out of YouTube

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Corporate News, Internet, Music,

MadonnaSay goodbye to seeing Madonna, James Blunt and Sheryl Crow on YouTube. Warner Music is pulling all their publishing rights content. The company was the first in September to offer the site music videos, behind the scenes footage, interviews and original programming. The problem seems to be a monetary one as Warner had apparently been asking for upfront funds, a share of ad revenue and per stream fee. We guess YouTube said no.

Women’s Murder Club Forces Change for Men in Trees

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, ABC, News, Renewals,

Women's Murder ClubJust last month, I commented about the poor treatment Scrubs was receiving by its bosses at NBC.  Now I’m starting to feel just sorry as for ABC’s —and I don’t even watch the show!

Earlier today, the Alphabet network finally got around to picking a return date for freshman show .  What does this have to do with Trees?  Well, Club‘s three episode stint starting Tuesday, April 29th will not only force Boston Legal to find a new home elsewhere (Wednesdays @ 10pm starting April 30th), it will push Men in Trees off the calendar until….May 28th.  That means the program will essentially be left to find an audience during the small summer season. 

Now if a network really wanted to hate a show, wouldn’t it be nicer if they just came right out and said it?  Seriously—how is anyone supposed to watch the series if they don’t know when it’s going to be on?  That’s Marketing 101, people!

(Just a reminder - you can keep up with schedule changes like this one on TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule.  Just click here!)

‘Lost’ Comes to ABC Thursdays

LostGood news, fans.  has finally announced the show’s 2008 premiere date:  Thursday, Jan. 31st.

That’s right. Thursday.  The series will finally be moving to a plum day of the week.  Granted, a few other programs will be going into repeats by that time —- but I have a feeling the producers won’t be complaining about a hand-me-down time slot.

Lost will air in former 9pm shift.  It’s January debut will then be followed by ABC’s mid-season replacement, , @ 10pm.

This Week on TV (12/3-12/9)

The Closer

 

MONDAY (12/3)
  • (TNT, 8pm):  The special two-hour holiday episode brings Brenda’s parents into the investigative fold.  Nothing says Christmas like talking blood with your blood.
  • (NBC, 9pm):  (NOTE:  This is the last new episode left.)  ‘Peter squares off against former friends thanks to Adam’s confusing story about the Shanti virus.’  He shouldn’t fault Adam; the confusing storyline is to blame.
  • (FOX, 9pm):  ‘Boulet and Cobb investigate an insurance adjuster’s murder.’  As if there weren’t enough people in New Orleans with a motive.
  • (NBC, 10pm): (First half of the two-parter; 2nd half airs Wednesday).  ‘Evidence points to Reese’s father in the murders that sent Crews to prison.’  I’m guessing this won’t be resolved anytime soon…otherwise, we wouldn’t have a show.

Thanksgiving Day TV

Thanksgiving TurkeyThanksgiving Day is all about eating, and what goes perfectly with any meal? Plenty of TV – and all the major networks and cable channels will provide you with a feast this year, even despite the that has changed Primetime TV

NBC promises traditional holiday fare with the annual (a long-standing Turkey Day event). This will be later followed by - the version - which is a movie always worth watching. (I make it a point to watch this flick at least once every holiday season – it’s one of those must-holiday-haves, like .)

Or, you can take a small deviation from long-standing tradition with CBS, which will be showing an alternate Thanksgiving Day parade.  A handful of episodes follow, but don’t worry – football starts at 2:00 pm.  Meanwhile, FOX starts broadcasting their own action at noon with Green Bay and Detroit.

Writers Strike: Changes For ‘24’ and ‘Prison Break’

Prison Break The will obviously be doing a number to all the network schedules.  Here are two big highlights announced today by FOX:

Not wanting to interrupt only halfway through its day, the execs have decided to delay its premiere altogether.  Season 7 had been scheduled to start Jan. 13/14; now the debut is on indefinite hold.  If nothing else, maybe this will allow to serve his entire jail sentence all at once.

Speaking of jail, the boys at will now be returning to the airwaves sooner than expected.  The show was originally slated to end its fall run on Dec. 17th and return April 14th; it will now start its Christmas break after Nov. 12’s episode then return on Jan. 14th.

Scrubs

 

MONDAY (10/22)

**No new episode of Ellen today.  She’s still recovering from all the doggy drama**

  • Live With Regis and Kelly (ABC, syndicated):  will be pulling double-duty this week as he fills in for Regis Philbin in NY and tapes his show in LA.  (I’m guessing we’ll still be seeing him on as well.)  If we’re lucky, Guillermo will fill in for Gelman too.
  • Prison Break (FOX, 8pm):  The show returns tonight after being preempted by baseball last week.  What?  You don’t care either?
  • Heroes (NBC, 9pm):  Many fans have been waiting for Kristen Bell’s debut tonight.  Unfortunately, she’s one more new character I’ll have to ignore.
