Articles for Criminal Minds Season 6

If there‘s a pattern so far this week in the ratings, it‘s that CBS is still the top dog. On Wednesday night the network had the highest-rated shows in all three hours of prime time and The Defenders became the season‘s third highest-rated new show of the season (behind Hawaii Five-0 and Mike and Molly, both also on CBS).  Read more »
In the season five finale, we left Matt Spicer revisiting the murder of his parents, over 20 years ago, as it‘s connected to a serial killer. Morgan, knocked to the ground, lay helpless as Spicer got shot. Spicer‘s daughter still held captive by the serial killer. Well, last week we kicked off the new season and we‘re looking for a fan to recap the show.  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 »
This week marked Larry King‘s last week on Larry King Live (but watch out for his next career in standup comedy!), and this week is also a barren wasteland when it comes to new TV.Luckily, there‘s a fun way to pass the time, honor Larry King‘s passing (...out of the cable world) and say hi to some of your favorite TV stars: "The Larry King Game"! A little context: Kevin Pollak (host of Million Dollar Money Drop) is also the host of "The Kevin Pollak Chat Show," and he has a tradition with his celebrity guests called "The Larry King Game," in which they do an impression of Larry King. That usually means at least three things: Leaning over and doing the husky Larry King voice, making up a gross or weird anecdote (usually about being really old), and then "taking a call" from a weird-sounding town. It‘s really funny. It‘s also an ART. And so many of our favorite TV stars have done it! Check out some of my favorites, and let them bring out the King in you:  Read more »
Running a marathon sucks. (Probably. Not like I‘d know! I watch TV for living.) But watching a TV marathon RULES! Especially at Christmas time, when you want something to do with your family or something to do to avoid your family. Either way, a TV marathon is the way to go.Want to know which marathons to turn on while you hunker down, zone out and stay in this weekend? Well, there are a TON that will be on TV starting tomorrow. But these ones are the best. At least in my highly subjective, highly correct opinion.  Read more »
Good news for Criminal Minds fans. Deadline has reported that CBS has hired Ed Berno, Criminal Minds showrunner, to oversee the midseason spinoff series, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior. This news comes on the heels of reports that CBS fired the original showrunner, Chris Mundy, because the network was "not happy with the creative direction of the show." While usually news that a new series fired its showrunner is never a good sign, fans should rest assured knowing that CBS is committed to the Criminal Minds brand. The network feels that keeping Berno on to run both series will provide a sense of continuity for the franchise. CBS did the same thing last year by keeping Shane Breenan on to run NCIS and its spinoff, NCIS: Los Angeles.  Read more »
Thanks to an interview with an astronomer, the Internet has gone crazy over new truths written in the stars. Instead of the 12 zodiac constellations we‘ve all known and loved, it turns out that there‘s a 13th zodiac sign out there. And it‘s called Ophiuchus. Weird... Read more »
Does the world really need a Criminal Minds spin-off? Probably not, but I guess CBS does, which is why Suspect Behavior premieres tonight at 10pm following the original.Just like Criminal Minds, Suspect Behavior follows a Behavioral Analysis Unit working out of Quantico, Virginia and traveling across the country to investigate criminals. This is the first of many problems I have with the show. While the spin-offs for CSI and NCIS are set in different cities, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior is literally the exact same show, only with different people. And that‘s not even entirely true since the spin-off also features Kirsten Vangsness as the unit‘s lab tech, Penelope Garcia.  Read more »
CBS can do no wrong. After launching five of the most successful new shows of the fall season, the network has another hit with the Criminal Minds spin-off, Suspect Behavior.

On Tuesday evening, the FOX network went for all-out decimation with regard to its "bubble" shows. Every program not certain of renewal is gone. Before the cancellation bloodbath was over, Human Target, Lie to Me, Breaking In, The Chicago Code and Traffic Light all fell off the FOX schedule.So what does this mean for the fates of bubble shows on the other networks? Read more »
Finally, proof that CBS isn‘t dominated by procedural franchises. Today CBS axed its Criminal Minds spin-off, Suspect Behavior, after just one season. The show joins The Defenders, $#*! My Dad Says and Chaos on the list of freshman CBS shows canceled by the network.More importantly, it marks the first cancellation of  CBS procedural franchise. With CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles, the network has built a seemingly invincible line-up of never-ending procedurals, but the failure of the Criminal Minds spin-off is proof that the same formula can‘t work for every show.  Read more »
Last year CBS shook up its schedule by moving two of its strongest performers, The Big Bang Theory and Survivor, and now the network is doing it again.CBS has revealed its fall 2011 schedule, and the biggest changes come with moves for two of the networks biggest dramas, CSI and The Good Wife. After years of anchoring Thursday nights, the original CSI is moving to Wednesdays at 10pm, where it will no doubt try to kill Law and Order: SVU once and for all.  Read more »
Last night, FOX‘s American Idol rose even further, up slightly from last week, and is sure to soar even higher for the season finale next week. With many of Wednesday‘s big shows out for the summer, Idol had little to no competition going into last night‘s two-hour singing extravaganza. On last night‘s episode, the final three competitors sang three songs a piece -- one chosen by coach Jimmy Iovine, one chosen by the judges and one chosen by the contestants themselves. The episode absolutely dominated ratings, with 24.36 million viewers. Going into the results show tonight, it‘s anyone‘s game. Be sure and check BuddyTV tonight for our recap of Idol, and find out who‘s surviving into the final episodes of the season!  Read more »
The 2010-2011 TV season is officially over now that American Idol has wrapped up, so it‘s time to look back and see what shows and networks were the big winners and losers of the year. Deadline has two fantastic lists ranking over 140 shows in terms of total viewers and the strong demographic of 18-49-year-olds. A quick look at the list for total viewers reveals that reality competitions and CBS crime procedurals are still in power, taking the top 12 spots on the list.  Read more »
