    It is and FWIW, it had one of the most amazing sets (the huge, multi-level casino floor) ever built for a TV show. But yeah, the show was crap.

    Not sure how many watched the British Series "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" but I'm very interested in this.



    National Geographic Channel is excited to announce we have greenlit a brand new series called 'American Gypsies' from Stick Figure Productions.

    Meet the Johns family, one of Manhattan's most prominent Gypsy families, who are struggling to preserve their age-old customs amid the vices and virtues of the city. Witness the inner workings of the Gypsy community — from secret elder assemblies to arranged marriages and weddings, from vicious family feuds to successful palm-reading and fortune-telling shops.

    TV Rating Wednesday


    Fox won the night with adults 18-49, but The X Factor's 4.2 adults 18-49 rating and 12.14 million viewers was nowhere close to Idol and well short of Modern Family's 6.0 adults 18-49 rating and 14.3 million viewers.

    ABC's Revenge got off to a nice start, winning the 10pm hour with a 3.4 adults 18-49 rating and and 10.15 million viewers. That bettered Ted Danson's debut on CSI's 3.1 adults 18-49 rating, but CSI won the hour in total viewers with 12.59 million. The Stabler-less Law & Order: SVU was last at 10pm with a 2.3 adults 18-49 and 7.6 million viewers.

    Modern Family. Whoa!

    X-Factor is down near where The Voice started. Not bad, and it should grow a little. But, it may never be close to Idol.

    Re: Television Random, Random Scripted/NonScripted

    Lifetime has canceled Roseanne Barr's Roseanne's Nuts. Hardly a surprise given the anemic ratings, which started OK with a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating before dwindling down to a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating. The writing was already on the wall by the time it was banished to Friday nights. Roseanne broke the news herself on Twitter Wednesday afternoon with a tweet (pictured above), and then followed up with another tweet (pictured below).

    Re: Television Random, Random Scripted/NonScripted

    Businessweek are suggesting a Netflix takeover might be forthcoming. Most likely by either google or amazon.

    Share price has dropped considerably after the price increase and re-branding, such that it would be about 50% or more cheaper for a takeover now. Still, there seems to be the impression that it will become cheaper to acquire yet. It's pretty attractive for both of those companies to obtain and has quite a nice profit margin in addition to it's streaming and content assets.

    Re: Television Random, Random Scripted/NonScripted

    Surfing yesterday (too early for football) I found myself watching Sex and The City on the Style network. They were showing shows late in the series - when Charlotte met Trey - and I decided to go back to the beginning since I'd never really watched the early episodes.

    I ended up watching S1 eps 1-4 at an online site and I have to say what a difference the early show was compared to what it became. Carrie was actually likable to me. Samantha wasn't as over the top as she became.

    Have to say I liked what I saw of S1 so far especially the cab ride where they counsel Charlotte on using the rear door.

    The 20 something male apartment was also LOL funny.

    I was a big fan of the series Roseanne, but this was a godawful series. It was like watching my grandparents bicker, only with more swearing.

    Re: Television Random, Random Scripted/NonScripted

    Speaking of Mariska, what do we all think of the new season on Law & Order SVU? I've been pleasantly surprised. In particular, I thought this week's episode was OUTSTANDING. If you missed it, don't worry. They'll re-run it 175 times as part of this season.

    I'm watching the reruns on the weekend. Without giving too much away what do you think of the new kids?

    It's hard to get a sense for them yet because the SVU dynamic has mostly been about Olivia's self-pity party.

    But the storyline for the episode from Tuesday was excellent. As least I thought so. It was the first episode for the new guy.
