TV flotsam

  • I have nothing but amused scorn for the Golden Globes, until they give Hugh Laurie an award. Two consecutive awards, in fact. They’re geniuses.
  • David Shore and Bill Lawrence duke it out over the Scrubs “homage” to House. No, not exactly, but that would make for a better story.
  • CBC’s Little Mosque on the Prairie just played a rerun of the pilot. Again. In the timeslot that is supposed to be a new episode, according to CBC’s site, and my site, which got its information from their site. I’m confused. They change the timeslot after its spectacular debut and then either mix up the publicity for the second, or air the wrong episode? Based on the official show site, it looks like maybe the Wednesday timeslot might be the new episode, and the Monday one the repeat. That’s not what previous press releases have said, though. Interesting strategy for CBC to try to hold on to the viewers who tuned in en masse for the pilot last week. Twice.

    All the ads emphasize Wednesday as the new episode (larger print). I’m looking forward to seeing it!

    Then it was really, really stupid of them to send out press releases and say on their website that Monday was. What the hell is up with the CBC?! Never mind …

    ¡Qué bien! Me puso muy contenta el premio. Podemos dejar para más adelante nuestro plan revolucionario…
    Realmente no creía que se lo fueran a dar de nuevo (aunque no dudaba que se lo merecía más que nadie)
    Fue una noche de una aplastante invasión británica ¿no?

    Hasta pronto, Diane, estoy de vacaciones de verano y desde diciembre no leía el blog (¡tengo tanto atrasado, ahora veo!)

    Ha … Julia says she was happy about my first point, and now we can hold off on our revolutionary plan (But if he doesn’t win the Emmy, watch out. That’s me saying that, not Julia.) And:

    I really didn’t believe they’d give it to him again (although I didn’t doubt he deserved it more than anyone). The night was quite the British invasion, no?

    Plus she just got back from summer vacation (summer?! I want to move to the southern hemisphere) and is now very behind on her blog reading. I’ll wait until you catch up, Julia 😉

    Leave it to CBC to fuck up the first viewing of the show after hitting such huge numbers. It’s comical, really.

    BTW, a writer friend has taken to calling the show Corner Mosque, which amuses me.

    As a total aside appropo of nothing, I was at CBC today and manage to finagle a look at the Deal or No Deal set (Global’s shooting it on the 10th floor there). Holy crap. It looks good, actually better than the US set because the lighting is pretty sophisticated. It made me happy and sad at the same time (three Canadian show budgets went into the lighting design alone on CDOND)

    Heh, I don’t doubt it. I have no idea what to do about that show in terms of whether it’s Canadian content, so I’m pretending it doesn’t exist. It’s short term enough I can say it doesn’t quite fit into the TV Eh site’s mandate. (And by “mandate”, I mean “whatever whim possesses Diane today”.) It’s not like it’s hurting for publicity anyway.

    The CBC has produced some great shows recently. The CBC TV programming and scheduling departmenthowever, could easily be replaced by a group of orangutans and nobody would notice the difference.
