After giving the bunnies the boot earlier in the week, NBC canceled “Free Agents”. Luckier series: Comedies “Up All Night,” “2 Broke Girls” and, unfortunately, “Whitney” have been renewed. Hopefully, “Simpsons” won’t suffer a similar fate. The voice actors and 20th Century Fox Television are haggling over money, and the popular (and expensive) cartoon, which has been running since 1989, is in danger of being canceled. Even if Homer and clan do bid adieu, the series will live on in syndication. Any “Arrested Development” fans still out there? At a New Yorker Festival on Sunday, creator Mitchell Hurwitz confirmed a movie based on the canceled comedy series and a set of 10 or so new episodes are in the works.

Greetings fellow television fans, fanatics, addicts and enthusiasts; welcome to our blog about TV for the Press Democrat Online. Together we will keep up with what’s coming up, examine new and existing programs in depth and from time to time take a moment to appreciate programs from the past. In addition, we’ll delve into the deep corners of Netflix and Hulu to recommend shows from around the world. My hope is together we will find enough quality programming to fill our TV viewing schedules and never again utter the words, “All these channels and nothing to watch!”
