In the Flesh, Kitchen Nightmares, and Community

SEASON FINALES, March 26 2014!

  • Pysch (Series finale, 9 pm, USA)… SO SAD 😦
  • Duck Dynasty (Season 5 finale, 10 pm, A&E)
  • Broad City (Season 1 finale, 10:30 pm, Comedy Central)

-BBC America has announced that the zombie mini-series In the Flesh is returning May 10th.

-Showtime has ordered a Morgan Spurlock produced show, Seven Deadly Sins, which is a docu-series. He will also host the show.  It will premiere on June 19 at 11pm.

Enlisted and Raising Hope are getting replaced by Kitchen Nightmares starting April 11. FOX is promising that Enlisted will return, no idea when though. It has also been bumped from next week’s episode cause of the hour-long Raising Hope series finale (April 4, 2014).

-Insiders at NBC and Sony are saying that they are optimistic about a final 13-episode season of Community. And are also in talks about a movie. If NBC does not renew the show, Sony said they would shop the final season elsewhere, like Hulu. So hopefully the “six seasons and a movie” actually comes true because the show is amazing and everyone who hasn’t seen it should. All episodes of the show are on Hulu if you’d like to binge watch the show! http://www.tv.com/news/as-community-contemplates-a-season-6-renewal-talk-of-a-movie-grows-14417279898197690560/
