On Gear Live: Samsung S95C: The OLED TV You Can’t Afford (to Ignore!)

This Week on TV (3/9-3/15)


(You can view TV Envy’s Midseason Programming Schedule here.)


  • Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 8pm):  Season premiere. “This season, a new feature in the early weeks is a dance-off between the bottom two couples facing elimination.” Steve Wozniak + moon walk = elimination-proof.
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8pm):  “The guys’ trip to San Francisco takes a detour once they learn that actress Summer Glau (appearing as herself) is on their train.” If you don’t already know who is, you probably shouldn’t be watching this show.
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30pm):  “Ted reunites with his college girlfriend (), prompting Lily and Marshall to reveal how much they loathed the snooty woman.” From what I recall, one can easily bond with Prepon over a quick smoke break.
  • Castle (ABC, 10pm):  Series premiere. “Well-known mystery writer Richard Castle is questioned by a fiery detective about a serial killer reenacting murders from his books.” Kinda sounds like Basic Instinct, sans a naked Michael Douglas. Or Sharon Stone. Or Jeanne Tripplehorn.

A Belated Ending for October Road

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.

‘October Road’ Returns to ABC

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

October Road, the show that made a brief appearance last March, will be returning to next month.  The show stars as Nick Garrett, a famous author who returns to his home town after 10 years away. (I tell you this because chances are you didn’t watch it either.)  (That 70’s Show) plays Nick’s ex-girlfriend and mother of his possible child.

October will make a one-stint appearance Thursday, Nov. 22nd @ 10pm.  It will then slide into its regular time slot starting Monday, Nov. 26th @ 10pm (presumably after is wrapped up).

I hate to say the series won’t last more than another six episodes—but I’ll go and ahead and do just that.  The last time a show made a one-time Thursday appearance, it quickly disappeared days later.  (If you haven’t guessed, I was referring to Viva Laughlin.)  And has anyone else noticed that October is premiering on Thanksgiving??  My bet’s on four new episodes…tops.
