Quarterlife Already Yanked from NBC Schedule

DescriptionQuestion: What dubious honor do Anchorwoman and quarterlife have in common?  Answer:  They’re both one-and-out shows.

After just one airing, NBC has already decided to pull the plug on its experimental project.  (Apparently the network wasn’t feeling quite daring anymore.)  - a project created by My So-Called Life‘s Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick - was an internet hit long before it hit the boob tube this week.  The Peacock execs, thinking the series’ built-in popularity would bring insta-ratings, gave the show a special debut earlier this week with plans to have it regularly air on Sunday nights.  Unfortunately, the idea was far too ambitious for its fickle viewers.

The show’s premiere gave NBC its lowest ratings in the Tuesday 10pm slot in approximately 17 years.  While I would usually chide a network for giving up so easily, in this case, I can’t say I blame them.  If the program couldn’t succeed in SVU‘s regular time slot, where would it?

Those still interested in watching quarterlife play out can either find it on the web or on its new home - (NBC’s sister station).

Men in Trees

(You can find our Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (2/25)
  • A Raisin in the Sun (ABC, 8pm):  and the rest of his Broadway cast bring the play to the small screen.  I’m sorry - I believe his theater name is Sean Combs.
  • The Moment of Truth (FOX, 8pm):  Special night.  Apparently this episode is so controversial, the producers debated airing it.  Then they realized what network they were on and just went with it.
  • Welcome to the Captain (CBS, 8:30):  “Hope makes some new friends so she won’t be alone on Friday nights.” Their names?  Jack and Daniels.
  • Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious (CW, 9pm):  “The women receive a surprise visit from JC Chasez.”  They, too, are wondering why he doesn’t have anything better to do.

Quarterlife Makes The Big Time on Network TV

quarterlife cast

If you are a fan of “quarterlife,” you will be happy to know that the series, which is up to episode 24, has been picked up to run on network teevy, namely NBC. The series about neurotic twentysomethings was created by “thirtysomething’s” Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick and will premiere February 26. While we don’t see the show as exactly earthshaking, we recognize and note that other series (such as Lil’ Bush and TMZ) began on the Net and now have found a comfortable albeit moderately successful run on legitimate TV. Those that can, apparently do and literally get to capitalize their title.

Internet Invades Real Time with Online Nation

DescriptionWe can tolerate Reality TV online. We can even suffer through TMZ TV, although we find it rather opportunistic. But when we heard about Online Nation that will premiere on The CW, we really started to wonder why anyone who has access to the Internet would want to see YouTube on the boob tube? There are plenty of opportunities to get your fifteen minutes of fame online, so why would we want to do the same in the real world?

We suspect that this is a chance for Network television to get in on the popularity of such sites that appeal especially to younger people who are the big spenders. In other words, another feeble attempt at making folks look merely foolish in the search for the big bucks. We do, however, applaud the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for awarding a special Emmy to Current TV and its partners Al Gore and Joel Hyatt for recognizing that there is more to the Internet than the exploits of Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan.


MySpaceTv to Air Quarterlife

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

QuarterLifeMySpace has decided to enter the world of reality shows, at least that’s how it appears. Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick, creators of “My So-Called Life,” are putting together QuarterLife on MySpaceTV. While we are not exactly sure of the content, the preview shows it to be a group of twentysomething friends that do odd things to each other on and with the net. We visited the site itself where we discovered that it may be an interactive show, or perhaps just a tie-in to get others to the second site. The show will make its debut on November 11 on MySpace and the day after on the QuarterLife site.
