A Belated Ending for October Road

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, ABC, Gossip,

October Road

Although followers of were left wanting after the show’s cancellation, those devotees could still get a bit of closure. The program’s co-creators (Scott Rosenberg, Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec) have written a 15-minute finale that they hope will answer many questions.

The piece - which sounds very similar to what happened at the end of Felicity - would start with Hannah and Big Cat’s wedding and then immediately jump seven years forward.

The plan is to attach “Don’t Look Back: An Epilogue for an Epic Love” (which has not yet been filmed) to October Road‘s Season 2 DVD and/or air it on the web.

This Week on TV (3/10-3/16)

The Real Housewives of New York City

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)


MONDAY (3/10)
  • The Bachelor: Where Are They Now? (ABC, 8pm):  “Highlights from past seasons include segments catching up with past bachelors (Andrew Firestone and Aaron Buerge) and former contestants.”  So the whole point of the show is to say there is no point to this show.  Look at how successful it’s been!
  • Canterbury’s Law (FOX, 8pm):  Series premiere.  “Julianna Margulies stars as a maverick defense lawyer who plays by her own rules to help the falsely accused.”  I’m guessing will still be on long after this program goes off the air.
  • New Amsterdam (FOX, 9pm):  Regular day and time.  If you didn’t watch last Tuesday or Thursday, I’m sure you won’t tonight either.
  • October Road (ABC, 9pm):  Special time.  In the season (series?) finale, “Eddie’s ex-girlfriend shows up to reconnect with him, causing problems in his relationship with Janet.”  Since we may never get a satisfactory resolution from this ratings-starved show, let’s just pretend Janet kicks her ass.

ABC Announces Renewed Shows

Pushing Daisies Now that we are days away from a probable end to the writers strike, has felt comfortable talking about the network’s future.  Although the rest of 2007-08 remains unclear, the 2008-09 year is starting to take shape.

A total of nine shows have so far received renewal notices from the Alphabet network. That’s not to say more won’t come.  But many programs not currently listed may have reason to be nervous.

Of the shows returning this fall, five are ‘veterans’; four are newbies that survived their freshman year.  Those programs (in alphabetical order) are:  Brothers & Sisters, Desperate Housewives, Dirty Sexy Money, Grey’s Anatomy, Lost, Private Practice, Pushing Daisies, Samantha Who? and Ugly Betty.

A sampling of those not mentioned include October Road, Carpoolers, Cavemen, Boston Legal, Men in Trees and Women’s Murder Club.  (Big Shots is apparently dead already.)
