Couple of Notes on Commenting…

If your asking about an air date show, please make sure it isn’t in the list already. Easiest way to do this is to use your browser’s ‘Find’ function (‘Ctrl & F’ on a PC, ‘cmd and F’ on a Mac).

Also, if you’re asking for a returning air date, it really helps me out if you know which channel it’s airing on currently to post that in the comment.

I know a lot of the TV shows, but the more info you can leave me, the easier it is for me to check. :)

  1. amber says:

    Looking for a few series :
    Client list
    The leftovers

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      We would expect Wentworth and the Leftovers both back later in the year (both in the list); the Client List is finished; and there’s no new information on the other two

  2. AKK says:

    Partners in Crime according to a bbc report is coming in autumn (most likely September) as it was commissioned in time for Agatha’s 125th birthday on 15th September.

    It’s always sunny in Philadelphia has aired season 9 last year so 10 is this year.

  3. Anthony says:

    I really find it weird that a lot of ABC Family shows struggle to be popular in the UK.

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      It’s not particularly strange given that The U.S. produces television for a market of 300m people, and we are 65m people here. There’s always going to be some that just isn’t imported. There are also significant differences in taste between different markets, and that may account for ABC family content not travelling as much as other output

  4. Bailey says:

    Teen mom og any UK air date please?

  5. sue reid says:

    Hi there, I have seen on facebook that Million Dollar Listing Season 4 started on bravo tv on Wednesday. However I can’t find any information about what channel it is in in the UK, what date it started or what time. Can you help please?

    Many thanks Sue Reid

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      I’m assuming you mean the New York version rather than Los Angeles, Miami or Cumbernauld. If so, that’s right, the fourth season only just started in the US this week. There’s no information for the UK yet, but previous seasons have been on Sky Living

  6. Lee Bingham says:

    New (& mature) internet user found geektown by luck & its brilliant use it a lot hoping you will know if Suits has been picked up by Dave as season 4 is almost finished & i know season 5 starts soon in U.S.A. many thanks.

    • Dave Dave says:

      Hi Lee and welcome to our little community. :)

      We won’t know 100% for sure if Dave has picked up Suits (which I also love) season 5 until around Oct/Nov, but I’d say it’s extremely likely as it does well for them. Usually airs in Jan in the UK, so Jan 2016 for season 5.

  7. BILL says:

    The Digital Trends site is advertising Sons of Anarchy final season 7 as starting on netflix 25/04/15

  8. Louis says:

    There is a new series called Scream based on the film series starting in June in America on MTV. Not sure when it’s due over here but looks pretty good.

  9. Brian says:

    Under the Dome’s included in Spike’s trailers. No indication whether it’s just repeats of season 1 and 2, or if they also have the rights to season 3.

  10. Middie says:

    According to the Alibi facebook page, Perception is back 18th June @9pm for those last few episodes.

  11. AKK says:

    penny dreadful is 5th of may at 9pm-sky atlantic website
    Thunderbirds are go has already aired on 4th april at 5pm.
    How to live with your parents cancelled by abc
    Jekyll and Hyde in Autumn-itv presscentre

  12. Steve says:

    Just saw advertised on sky – Penny dreadful returns 5th of May .

  13. Sophie says:

    Hi, I love your site !! I use it religiously :) I recently got into Teen Wolf again and I know season 1 & 2 were on Sky Living and I know season 3 is on ITunes , but I was wondering if season 3 or 4 will be on actuall TV or be released on DVD at any point ? My sister is obsessed and I like it too haha . We are like a season or more behind the U.S. And I thought it would be on MTV like it is in America?


    P.S your podcasts are great !! I listen every week and I rely I you guys for my TV and films news :)

    Keep going !! :)

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      I don’t think it will be on “actual” TV any time soon, but you can get seasons 1-3 on DVD (season 3 doesn’t seem to have a UK release, but you can get R2 from other European markets, or the R1 import).

      U.S. Programmes aren’t automatically sold to sister channels in what they call overseas markets, which includes us. Likewise, for example, BBC programmes sold to the US market won’t necessarily go to BBC America.

    • Dave Dave says:

      Netflix is probably your best bet. Teen Wolf is on Netflix US, which you can watch using a service like Unlocator. There’s a link here on the Teen Wolf page. :)

  14. steve says:

    The new channel Spike has announced Sons of Anarchy will be aired. Do we know if this is from season 1? or will they just start airing from season 6 (which hasnt been aired domestically yet). Any ideas on the date? Appreciate the update.

    other updates would be appreciated on :
    Agent Carter on UK?
    any idea when Banshee season 2 might be aired again?
    Daredevil on UK (ie non -netflix)
    Is house of cards ever going to be on anything other than netflix?
    The Killing US version, season 3 and 4 on UK?

    I have sky and domestic -so frustrating that the likes of netflix, prime and even BT all add to the expense to watch a few programs..

    PS glad normal service resumed. thanks as always

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      I haven’t seen any official confirmation but I’d be absolutely flabbergasted if Sons of Anarchy began with season 6 rather than season 1.

      I’m afraid there simply isn’t any new information on any of your other questions, apart from House of Cards, which is available on DVD and Blu-Ray

    • James says:

      Sons of Anarchy is ‘starting’ with season 3, on Monday 20th April, 1:55am

  15. Dave Dave says:

    Normal service ‘appears’ to have been restored…. hopefully… fingers crossed… ;)

  16. AKK says:

    Orange Is The New Black is on Netflix on 12th June-tvwise
    Broad City is on Comedy Central on 28th June at 10pm
    The Ballots Monkeys is on Channel 4 at 10pm on 21st April
    How to live with your parents is cancelled

  17. IJ says:

    Cool. Thanks

  18. Brian says:

    No idea whether this has been posted or not, due to the site’s ‘issues’, but the latest series of The Walking Dead comes to Freeview on May 1st. Spike ran an advert during last night’s episode of Olympus.

  19. Dave Dave says:

    This isn’t a new format, there’s an issue with the site at the moment. Trying to resolve ASAP.

  20. IJ says:

    Really don’t like this new format, no show details at a glance and it just looks messy. PLEASE bring the old format back

  21. Paul Dormer says:

    What’s happened to the site? The menu across the top doesn’t seem to be working and on this page (which I was only able to get to from my browser history) the most of the round-up of forthcoming shows is missing.

  22. lisa strachan says:

    the vampire diaries returns to Tuesday nights 21/4 at 11.05pm

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Vampire Diaries has been airing new episodes weekly since 4th March (season 6, part 2), with one exception

      • Brenda G says:

        Hi Lisa & Andrew. Yes indeed The Vampire Diaries Season 6 part2 is back on ITV2 since 9pm Wed 04Mar & 1 episode (12) was deferred from 9pm Wed 08Apr to 9pm last Wed 15Apr. As credits rolled same Wed it was announced that from next week all future episodes of current season will air at later time 11.05pm Wed (not Tues, Lisa). ITV2 always aired “The Vampire Diaries” @9pm Tuesdays till Season6 part2 returned! It seems, the programme was up against sci-fi series “The 100″ on E4(which I also enjoy) so that may have prompted the change to Wed!
        However season2 finale of “The 100″ airs 9pm next Tues (+option to watch various Repeats throughout the week!) In fact there are also 2 repeats each week of the current “Vampire Diaries” series. For whatever reasons ITV2 chose to move the programme to a 2hour later time same day.. Wednesdays! I’m NOT happy & I’ll bet I’m not alone! I sincerely hope this will not be the normal airtime for next season due in the Autumn! Does anyone think a campaign to revert to 9pm Tues would help change minds of “The Powers That Be?”.. :( :(

  23. Neil says:

    I don’t think I am missing it, can you add Nashville to the list, it seems to have disappeared.?

  24. Bailey says:

  27. Jennifer says:

  28. Siobhan flynn says:

    Omg I nearly fainted with shock, is unforgettable really getting a 4th series on a+e, for a final series I assume

  29. Charles Comiskey says:

    As announced by Sky Atlantic on Twitter, True Detective is back on June 22nd 24 hours after the HBO showing. Monday nights look rather good on Sky Atlantic heading into summer,

  30. Joseph says:

    Any new info on Heroes Reborn? Feels as though we have been waiting decades for concrete news! Also , any rumblings of a 24 season 10?

  31. AKK says:

    is heavy water war meant to be good as it comes to more4 in the autumn?
    I read a review of newzoids which airs on itv on april 15th at 9pm and apparently is good

  32. AKK says:

    The Ballots Monkeys which is on channel 4 at 10pm on 21st April
    Russell Howards Stand Up Central is on comedy central at 10pm on 29th april
    Significant Mother which has no uk broadcaster

  33. Paul B says:

    Thanks Dave, Andrew & MartyM, much appreciated.
    I didnt realise there was Amazon Prime Instant Video & Amazon Instant Video.

  34. Paul B says:


    I’m looking at either Amazon Prime or Netflix.
    Has anybody seen any of the shows Daredevil, Bloodlines, Bosch, Transparent & are they any good.
    If you get say Amazon Prime do you have to pay for the shows on top of the subscription or can you watch The Vikings, Outlander & anything else free once you have signed up.


    • Dave Dave says:

      Hi Paul,

      Netflix – Daredevil is brilliant (watched the whole season over the weekend!). Dark, violent, but funny in places… It’s SO not Agents of Shield. Has elements of The Wire & Nolan’s Dark Knight. Well worth getting. You also get to see Breaking Bad (if you haven’t already), Better Call Saul, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, and Once Upon a Time, to name but a few. Netflix has some amazing shows.

      Amazon Prime Instant Video (not to be confused with Amazon Instant Video) – With Amazon Prime, you get a bunch of shows with your Prime membership. So no, you don’t have to pay extra for Vikings, Outlander, Bosch, Transparent, Ripper Street etc… You get a good mix shows exclusive to Prime customers, and lots that are free on Prime.

      Amazon Instant Video – Slightly different. You pay per season or episode for a show. You just need an Amazon account, and no extra special membership. SOME of these shows are free IF you have Prime, but not all of them. So, Outlander for example is exclusive to Prime members so you MUST have Prime to see it. However, other shows, like ‘The 100′ Season 1, are free if you have Prime, OR you can buy it per episode. Season 2 isn’t on Prime, BUT you can buy it per episode…

      Hope that makes sense!

      Personally, if it’s a choice of either/or… I’d go for Netflix at the moment.

      Dave :)

      • Andrew Andrew says:

        The third option is to have all of the above series, but pay for neither a Netflix account nor an Amazon Prime account, but requires patience.

        For about the same sort of money you can have a Lovefilm account, and rent all of these things, as well as just about any film imaginable, on dvd and bluray. You’ll also get all the series that are shown on Sky Atlantic, if you don’t have a satellite subscription.

        To make it even more confusing, as Lovefilm is owned by Amazon, you can get a subscription that includes both Prime Instant AND Lovefilm, and a Prime membership gives you quicker delivery on physical goods fulfilled by Amazon as well.

    • MartyM says:

      Although it obviously depends on personal preference, the quality of the shows produced for Netflix and Amazon are good, and certainly as good as mainstream network television. I’ve got both, mainly because I was already an Amazon Prime customer (for the parcels) and had subscribed to Netflix beforehand.
      With Amazon Prime you get all the shows marked ‘Prime’ included with the subscription, there is nothing else to pay for the programmes you mention. In addition you have access to the Amazon Instant Video catalogue which you have to pay for.

    • gfunk says:

      Just a note to say if you are a student over 16 you can get amazon prime for £39 instead of £79. Good deal.

  35. Brenda G says:

    The Enfield Haunting is on SkyLiving NOT SkyAtlantic! Incidentally, you have the programme “entered twice” in May for both SkyLiving AND SkyAtlantic. This is a single season of three episodes [unless the poltergeist(s) demands more! ;) ;) ;)

    • Dave Dave says:

      Ahh, Andrew and I added it at the same time lol
      (*ahem* although mine had the right channel… :D).

      I’ve deleted one now. :)

      • Andrew Andrew says:

        Ah yes, apologies everyone. I’ve just reminded myself (and everyone else) why I don’t just add/update things on the basis of a comment with no source quoted, without checking.

  36. AKK says:

    The Enfield Haunting starts in Spring on Sky Atlantic. Is there a chance you can add it to this list, thank you.

  37. tracey smith says:

    Beauty and beast starts in us in may, hopefully won’t take to long to be shown here

  38. Brenda G says:

    Just giving you all Heads-up re GOT (GAME OF THRONES) Season 5.. It starts tonight @9pm on SkyAtlantic! It is preceded by 2 half hour (approx) programmes: 1st 7.55pm Game Of Thrones: A Day In The Life – Behind The Scenes; 2nd 8.30pm Highlights from Red Carpet Event World Premiere @The Tower Of London.
    By the way, next Monday the 1st airing of new Game Of Thrones episode 2 is @2am Monday 20th April in case anyone can’t wait till 9pm Mon night! ;) Not sure if SkyAtlantic will air the rest of the season @this time but no harm in checking! ;)
    All the above are on an hour later on SkyAtlantic+1. Also, post show.. Thronecast is a full hour long but only 30 mins after the subsequent episodes. This programme only airs after Mon night & Tues night showings.
    All done now.. Mother Of Dragons we await you!! ;)

  39. Peter says:

    I think Murder in the First is likely to be June at the earliest not May as suggested as it only starts in the USA on 8 June.

  40. AKK says:

    sorry for sending to many requests andrew

  41. Howard says:

    hey andrew,

    you know the way the goldbergs is starting next monday, would you have any idea whether it will be on daily at half 7 or will it be a weekly affair.

    p.s. thanks again for this marvellous site i’d be lost without out

  42. AK says:

    capital and partners in crime in autumn 2015-tvwise

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Capital is due late 2015 which could be autumn and could be winter, while Partners in Crime is less defined. They are both fine in the unknown section for now, as it’s still the start of spring.

  43. Joanne mckenzie says:

    Is there another series of motive coming back that you know of its brilliant thanks

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Yes. There’s a third season due. No information yet, but the first two have been with us in June so it’s a safe bet

      • Brenda G says:

        “Motive” Season 2 repeats are currently running on Universal channel @9pm Mon (10pm on +1) with 2nd airing @2am Tues (3am on +1). Episode 6 is on tonight & episode 7 next week. I see this season 2 (13 episodes) aired last summer on Watch! Either way I’ll bet new season 3 will air soon after current Repeats end (1st June) on either Watch or Universal! ;)
        It’s up against new season 5 of Game Of Thrones which starts tonight @9pm on SkyAtlantic (10pm on +1)! By the way, next Monday the 1st airing of new Game Of Thrones episode 2 is @2am Monday 20th April (3am on +1) in case anyone can’t wait till 9pm Mon night! I’ll mention this again on separate post in case it’s missed here!

  44. AK says:

    can you add the Agatha Christie adaptation of Partners in crime and the John Lanchester adaptation of Capital which both air on BBC One in Autumn-tvwise
    Grace and Frankie May 8th Netflix-tvwise

  49. AK says:

    where is the x factor?
    Sherlock Autumn 2015-BBC
    z nation autumn 2015-tvwise

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      You already asked about the X Factor, and it would be a good idea to wait more than eight minutes before asking the exact same question again, especially at quarter past five in the morning. In fact, that eight minutes could have been spent looking up the entry in the A-Z, rendering the question moot.

      • AK says:

        why aren ‘t you responding to my requests

        • Andrew Andrew says:

          Oh, so many reasons.
          1) I’m not attached to a computer 24 hours a day
          2) you are posting too many
          3) I am not a robot and have a life outside of this. I’m currently in the park with my children.
          4) None of these are urgent and they can wait.
          5) I’ve responded to plenty of your queries already and you have thanked me for none.

          I hope that answers your question

  50. AK says:

    Series 12 of New Tricks-Last Series
    Where is The X Factor as you said you have added it, but you haven’t?
    Where is Shetland?
    Sherlock-Autumn 2015-BBC

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Take a deep breath. The X Facfor is listed as Aigust. You will see on this page that not all future month are listed. They are added on a rolling basis to keep it from being cumbersome. I suspect you haven’t checked the A-Z though, as you’d have found it there.

      Shetland is to the north of Orkney.

  51. Charles Comiskey says:

    HBO unveiled a teaser trailer for True Detective Season 2. Back on HBO on Sunday June 21st so I would assume it will be back soon after on Sky Atlantic.

  52. gfunk says:

    If I show has a natural end I will watch it but I am sick of watching shows with cliffhanger endings and your left without answers. Almost human ended without this. I stopped watching perception and revolution half way through last season as was pointless. I watched sopranos recently as it was a natural end. If a show gets cancelled they should give an ending to it not a cliff hanger. There are shows which companies buy which are cancelled before they show them. Why dont they buy shows that people want to see and are a few seasons in to their run. Then they won’t be wasting a slot for a show.just check out the list. I am currently watching 30 degrees in February and that has just been renewed 4 years after season 1. I watched grand hotel 39 episodes and that has finished as it was a natural end. That’s what everyone wants. I prefer 13 episode seasons. Though i do watch some 20 plus episode seasons too. i was going to watch reckless until i knew it was axed. I thought no ill keep a slot for something else.

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Very much with you on that. Terra Nova is another example. It’s a question of when the cancellation comes (usually after the end of a season, which doesn’t allow the writers to do a proper end) rather than the sheer number of seasons. A single-season show could have a proper end, while a show running for ten years could still end on a cliffhanger.

      I think the proper ending is far more important for serial programmes and less so for procedurals.

      Last Resort is a good example. Mostly serial, it needed a proper ending but right up until the last moment the writers didn’t know if it was renewed or cancelled, so had to hedge their bets. Fortunately the cancellation came just in time to put themes from a number of episodes together and create a proper ending, albeit a fast-paced breathless one.

      With something like Elementary, it wouldn’t matter quite so much, as each episode largely covers a single case.

      As for British channels buying already-cancelled American programmes, you have to imagine that the cost is considerably lower and although we do prefer proper endings, clearly that isn’t quite so important for everyone, again especially with procedurals.

      • Brenda G says:

        Reckless finished on (Irish terrestrial channel) RTÉ1 just before Easter & I must admit that while there was a conclusion of sorts it left me wanting more.. As though the writers wanted to pursue. Of course, in real life the good guys don’t always win so some TV programmes leave us in similar circumstances! One of the lead actors in this series is Cam Gigandet who played evil vampire James in 1st Twilight film of the Saga adapted from Stephenie Meyer’s books. ‘He scrubs up well’ to use a colloquialism! So he was pleasing on the eye despite the lack of closure. ;) Otherwise, don’t waste time on the series!

    • Jackie says:

      I have to agree with this, whenever a new American series starts now I automatically check to see whether it has been renewed or cancelled and if there is only one season I don’t bother watching it (like Almost Human and now Reckless).

      So for people like me it is a waste of time British channels buying these already cancelled series (even if they are cheaper), because I wont ever watch them, it is like buying a book from a shop that has the last pages missing, no-one would do that would they?

  53. Steve L says:

    Please please please tell me Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle will be aired in the uk????????????? Just watch a clip of The Rock & Jimmy Fallon’s episode!! AMAZING!!

  55. gfunk says:

    Reckless was cancelled after one season sorry to say. I check before I start watching a show and I dont bother watching shows which are cancelled.

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Everything gets cancelled eventually so where does your cut-off point lie?

      • Jackie says:

        For me the cut-off point is the first season, if I’m already watching it (like Stalker and Forever) then I will finish the season even if I find out it has been cancelled, however, if I know it has been cancelled before I start watching the first season then I don’t bother, because I don’t want to risk being left with a cliffhanger ending, thats happened to me too many times already (anyone else remember The Event or Flash Forward?).

    • PaulB says:

      There are quite a few one season shows i really enjoyed even though i knew they were cancelled.
      Almost Human, Flashforward, Alcatraz, Firefly.
      It looks like Stalker & Forever wont make a second season but it hasn’t put me off watching them.

  56. PaulB says:

    T V Wise has Fortitude renewed for a 2nd season.
    I still find it a bit odd & hard to get into.

  57. Terry says:

    The Simpsons will no longer come out on DVD :(

    Hoping bhis isn’t going to start a trend.

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      It will be, eventually. I’d give the physical medium about another ten years in the mainstream. It’s a shame, because i love getting my Lovefilm discs in the post, and just can’t yet embrace multiple online platforms etc. But c’est la vie. These long running animations, by virtue of the demographics that watch them and the way they do, the physical distribution maybe doesn’t pay for itself. I suspect that TV with real actors will probably continue to be distributed on disc for some time yet, because the average age of the viewing demographic is higher than 22.

      I’ll put my crystal ball away now :)

      • Ellie says:

        I’m on the last four discs of my LoveFilm queue now and I’m cancelling it after that. Really enjoyed it but it clearly isn’t going to go on much longer. Hated that Sky had the monopoly on everything for years, but in some ways it’s worse now. Now if you want to see everything, you need Sky, BT Sport, Netflix, Amazon Prime and … what else? Yahoo? PlayStation? On the bright side I may be reading more in future … :P

        • Andrew Andrew says:

          That’s a real shame. I like it for that exact reason – it has a vast library, and everything that you can get on all these other platforms you listed, but rather than the fragmentation they suffer from, where some shows are on one platform, and others elsewhere. And it’s a pretty reasonable price by comparison. Unfortunately I fear it will end sooner if people cancel.

          The only downside is that it requires patience, and it seems that most kids born after the Maastricht Treaty suffer from the malady of I-want-everything-and-I’m-entitled-to-it-right-now syndrome.

          Actually I have not a single one of the things you listed. I have Virgin cable TV and Lovefilm, and with those two I get absolutely everything, including Sky Atlantic content (on BluRay from Lovefilm). I’d rather chew my own leg off than watch club football so I don’t need the premium sports content either, and World Cup tends to be on ordinary channels.

          • Ellie says:

            I know what you mean but they’ve been frustrating too. A few years back all the big films used to appear really quickly; now, I get the feeling they hold some back precisely to lure people across to the streaming format. Several of the discs I’ve had lately were so badly damaged they were unwatchable. A couple of times they sent Blu-Rays that I hadn’t asked for. And if you want to watch a TV series in order it has to be the only thing on your rental list, otherwise you get episodes 1-4 six weeks before episodes 5-8. I watch enough TV and while I will miss the films, I can rent two or three a month on iTunes or Amazon for the same price.

            As for subscriptions, we have Sky primarily because we live so far out in the sticks that a few years back it was the only reliable option. Just started Netflix and actually it’s really good. Won’t be paying for any more, though.

    This is all according to tvwise

  62. Jess says:

    Have to say, I agree with you Andrew. Loved the film and also watched in the cinema, though for Bruce Willis not Brad Pitt. Sadly, TV programme has not been able to keep my attention – nice try but a bit too confusing in episode format for me.

  63. heather says:

    O m g can’t believe that Nina dobrev has quit the vampire diaries this is her last series . that’s according to the daily mirror today .enyone else have any info on that .

    • Dave Dave says:

      Yep, it’s true, she posted it on her Instagram account. Can’t say I’m totally shocked. She’s made a few noises about quitting a few months back. And it’s can’t be easy working with your ex everyday, even though Ian Somerhalder said everything was fine on set… That show has enough characters to continue without her at this point I think. Plus Elena can be kinda annoying…

      • Brenda G says:

        OMG! Hadn’t heard but can only imagine how hard it must be working & spending so much time with your ex. Wishing Nina Dobrev all the best in her career & much happiness in her personal life! What are the chances of Nikki Reed joining TVD.. ?? After all she has “vampire experience”!! ;)

  64. heather says:

    Breaking bad is air on splike a new channel to sky which is starting on April 15 th

  65. heather says:

    Nashville season 3 is airing on more 4 in April no exact date as of yet

  66. Andrew Andrew says:

    So, I have given up on 12 Monkeys after 5 or 6 episodes. Reluctantly, because I loved the film (yes I’m old enough to have watched it in the cinema when it first came out). The problem, I think, is much the same as I have with any of the Syfy programmes- just weak, not meaty enough, and often slow so I’ve sat and watched an episode but realise I’ve taken almost nothing in.

    Your views?

    • Brenda G says:

      Like Andrew & Jess I too find this series hard to get into.. Must says I have the disadvantage of not having seen the film. I haven’t checked it out but how is it doing across the Atlantic? Will it be cancelled after one season or are they gluttons for punishment?

      • Andrew Andrew says:

        Well, it’s been renewed for a second season, so it must be hitting the numbers Syfy are looking for. I must say, it isn’t terrible, it’s just that Syfy productions (tv and tvms) have a very similar feel, quite apart from the science fiction themes, they’re just “light”.

    • DaveB says:

      I thought it took a while to get going but have started to really enjoy it recently. 4 & 6 have been the strongest episodes so far – for me at least.

  67. tracey smith says:

    How many episodes are there of arrow and flash, as there isn’t a episode 19 of flash on next week

    • Brenda G says:

      Don’t know if same applies to “Arrow” till tomorrow night but “The Flash” is skipping a week.. Back the following Tuesday 21st April. Must be to ensure we stay behind US… Thoughts anyone?? :-(
      As AK says 23eps on both series. Btw, anyone else shocked to see “reveal” after car accident? IMO.. Leaves a possibility of hope for Wells.. No more spoilers!

      • PaulB says:

        I think Arrow will be ok, episode 18 is on this Thu over here & 19 is on in the US next wed 15th, so we should get it the day after on thu 16th.
        I enjoy Arrow but i think The Flash has been excellent, really consistent, great fx & i like all the cast.

    Halt and catch fire is on June 2 according to tvwise
    E4 is going to show empire.

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Empire is in the list (it’s red), Halt and Catch Fire is in the list for June (was black, now red as I’ve just updated it) and Olympus will be added shortly

      • AK says:

        thanks. But empire is still; saying no uk broadcaster but it is e4. Can you add Breaking Bad, which is on April 15th at 11pm.

        • Andrew Andrew says:

          I’ve fixed Empire. Breaking Bad isn’t a premiere this time round, having been on Netflix (and hence the premiere list) already.

          • AK says:

            Ok. Can you add the renewal status for izombie.

    Re Spike TV…
    Have been really looking forward to this new channel arriving since its announcement, but have just noticed a distinct lack of mention of it being available via Virgin on the advert. Is this correct, and if so, does anyone have any idea why?

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      I don’t think it is on Virgin from the outset. Negotiations are private, of course, but it’s probably due to lack of agreement on carriage rates.

  88. gfunk says:

    Can you update the following shows – odyssey is now American odyssey. Badults is on season 3. the after is no longer a series as didnt go ahead and you have powers in twice thanks

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      I’ve updated the name of Odyssey; Badults isn’t on series 3 yet; the text description of the After did clarify it didn’t make it to series, but I see the point and have archived it; Power without an “s” and Powers with an “s” are two very different programmes, as the text descriptions show, one is about a drug lord and the other is about superheroes.

  89. Gemma says:

    Any rumblings on who might be picking up the UK first run rights to Fear The Walking Dead? Was surprised there was no teaser trailer on Fox during the season finale

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Fox isn’t going to run a trailer for someone else’s acquisition. There’s no rumblings I’m aware of but I’d be surprised if Fox UK wasn’t an interested party, but no public details of any negotiations yet. It’ll turn up somewhere though, I’m pretty sure!

      • Dave Dave says:

        I did check with Fox UK. ‘No plans’ to air Fear The Walking Dead at the moment… Although I agree, i’d be surprised if it did go somewhere else.

        • Gemma says:

          Thanks Dave and Andrew. It would surprise me if Fox weren’t at least interested, but there is a chance that Netflix may swoop in and nab it. Even Viacom (or who ever it is that now owns Channel 5 and are launching Spike TV UK) could swoop in and nab it. I’m interested to see this show, though the more I think about it, the more it seems a bit like World War Z: The Movie.

          I’ll keep my eyes peeled and know you will be one of the first websites to break the news. I use this alot. :)

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Thanks Howard. I’ve updated American Dad. Atlantis is one for our computer genius Dave though, because in the interface that allows me to edit these entries it actually says 7.45 although, as you’ve noticed, for some reason it’s showing 8.45 on the public-facing page.

      Are these American dates or British dates? The start of Outlander season 1, for example, has been previously stated as 26th March in the UK, whereas the return of season 1 (ie part 2) in the US is the 4th April.

  109. Darcie Hunt says:

    The Grace Helbig Show starts on E! in April. I saw an advert for it before when I watching TV but it didn’t give a specific date, however I know that it comes on in the US on April 3rd.

    Just wanted to point out, while ITV2 is getting Family Guy later in the year it seems BBC3 still has rights to show the series currently being shown in the US so that makes it Season 14.

    When ITV2 gets it later in the year it’ll be Season 15. So we have 2 seasons of Family Guy coming, the one from BBC3 (Season 14) and the one coming from ITV2 in Autumn (Season 15).

        It’s also on UTV Ireland same time & date.. 5pm Saturday 04April. Is this a World Premiere date? Can’t see when episode 2 follows! It isn’t listed for following Saturday!

        • Andrew Andrew says:

          It’s probably not a world premiere. As an ITV programme, UTV in Northern Ireland and STV in Northern Scotland (who don’t always follow ITV scheduling) are showing it at the same time. I believe people in the Republic of Ireland can get UTV if they are near enough the border with Northern Ireland, and some on the east coast can pick up ITV Wales. UTV is also available as an international channel on some of the pay TV platforms I believe.

          But outside the British and Irish markets, it’s probably not at the same time.

          • Brenda G says:

            Just wish to clarify there ARE differences between UTV N Ireland & UTV Ireland! UTV Ireland, launched 01Jan 2015 is owned & operated by UTV Media’s subsidiary UTV Ireland Ltd. Generally UTV Ireland replicates NI service with some variations as rights to certain progs not available to UTV in the Republic & other programming rights not available in N Ireland. eg..BBC’s Graham Norton Show produced by division of ITV Studios airs on UTV Ireland 2 days after UK transmission while ITV’s The X-Factor produced independently by division of Fremantle Media remains with Irish terrestrial independent channel TV3. They decided to enter Rep of Ireland market after the sale of broadcast rights from Corrie & Emmerdale from rivals TV3. UTV’s N Ireland service had enjoyed large audiences in Rep up till 2000s
            but its share diminished after the arrival of Sky Digital which doesn’t carry UTV.

            • Andrew Andrew says:

              Thanks very much Brenda. I didn’t even know there was a UTV version outside the UK. With so many domestic channels to keep track of, I must admit I’m not au fait with international ones except perhaps for the U.S. ones who commission many of the programmes we maintain in the lists.
