This season is already getting good. Yes, it‘s only the second episode of the fourth season. But, trust me when I say that this season of Burn Notice is going to be hot. And yes, pun is intended.To add to the hotness that is Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan), we now have Jesse Porter (Coby Bell) the counterintelligence agent who Michael accidentally burned in last week‘s episode. But Jesse doesn‘t know it - yet. Now, since Jesse has been burned and therefore is having trust issues with everyone, Michael has to build up Jesse‘s trust in order for Jesse to, in turn, help Michael find that psychopath Simon and the other psychopath who helped Simon escape from prison. Complicated, but bear with me.  Read more »

If the children are our future, then we‘re screwed.  Today this year‘s Teen Choice Award nominees were announced, and as always, the list features some truly absurd nominees.On the television side, Gossip Girl leads the nominees for a TV Drama despite having a subpar season and coming in as one of the CW‘s lowest-rated shows.  Meanwhile, a great new show like The Vampire Diaries was stuck in categories for Fantasy/Sci Fi shows, which is arguably the most interesting category since it also features Fringe, True Blood, Lost and Supernatural.  Read more »

It is no secret that Bruce Campbell knows how to steal a show. Comic-Con makes no exception to that rule. Campbell lived up to fans expectations and may have possibly outdone himself this year. This year‘s Burn Notice panel consisted of Writers Alfredo Barrios Jr. and Matt Nix, as well as the legendary Bruce Campbell (Sam Axe), and actor/director Tim Matheson (Larry Sizemore). Moderating the panel this year was actor Chris Vance, who has guest-starred on Burn Notice as bad guy Mason Gilroy.The panel was perfectly balanced between honest answers to some great questions from both the crowd and Vance, and comedy provided mostly by Campbell but also from Matheson and Nix. Some of the attendees even made a few bucks from Campbell who was handing out cash for compliments. Read more »
As we witnessed at this year‘s Comic-Con, Burn Notice star Bruce Campbell is always a scene stealer--even off-screen.Of course, doling out cash to the crowd for compliments is one way to win them over--which is exactly what Campbell did at the Burn Notice panel, which also consisted of writers Alfredo Barrios Jr. and Matt Nix and actor/director Tim Matheson (Larry Sizemore). Moderating the panel this year was actor Chris Vance, who has guest-starred on Burn Notice as bad guy Mason Gilroy.Check out our full coverage of the Burn Notice panel at the 2010 Comic-Con in San Diego!  Read more »
How about some of today‘s TV news in 300 words?USA USA USAThe USA network continues its cable dominance with the renewal of 3 hit shows: White Collar, Psych, and Royal Pains. Add the 3 returning shows to the already renewed: In Plain Sight, Covert Affairs, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and Burn Notice, and you‘ve got yourself a real rival network on your hands. At this point, USA crushes in the summertime ratings. Bringing these 7 shows back means USA is looking forward to a hot summer 2011.  But if they are able to work their mojo in the fall, basic network channels need to look out. The network could soon be a major contender. USA has their tone, style, and whatever they‘re putting in the water over there on lock. They have successfully mastered their brand to the point that almost every effort is a hit. [THR]Chuck Lands Rob RiggleChuck‘s 4th season has brought with it a ton of casting news. The show cast Linda Hamilton as Chuck‘s mom, and a whole slew of actresses (Olivia Munn, Summer Glau, Stacy Keibler) to play Greta, the revolving undercover agent. Now we have news that funnyman Rob Riggle (The Daily Show) is set to guest star. Riggle will play Jim Rye, a slightly off CIA agent who is brought in to help Chuck with his spy skills. Too bad Riggle is not one of the Gretas; that would be epic! [Ausiello] Read more »
It is the considerable opinion of BuddyTV that the people should not be allowed to vote. This morning the 2011 People‘s Choice Award nominees were announced and the choices are less than inspired. Sure, like a broken clock, some of the choices show an impressive exhibition of taste (nominating Ian Somerhalder‘s highly entertaining performance on The Vampire Diaries), but mostly, it‘s an embarrassment. Read more »
