  1. Josie says:

    Hi, any definate news on Supernatural Season 7 yet? Thanks

  2. Catherine says:

    I thought Person of Interest was meant to air in July? 🙁

  3. Zoe says:

    Hey has there been any new on Rizzoli and Isles Season 3 yet?

  4. Graham says:

    Any word on series 8 of peep show or new series of qi I know both have been or are filming just now.

  6. mark says:

    top gear usa 6/7/2012 bbc three

  7. Dave says:

    BFI are holding a screening for the 1st episode of Doctor Who on Aug 14th. They’re normally around a week ahead of transmission so either 18th or 25th Aug would be a good guess. I’d think it’ll be 25th as that’s bank holiday weekend.

    Probably also impacts Merlin, assume that will run when Doctor Who takes a mid season break and run through till Xmas (didn’t they do that last year and get bumper viewing figures for the last couple of episodes?)

    • Dave Elliott Dave says:

      Thanks for that Dave!

      14th is a Tues, so i’m guessing the 18th Aug. If you count it out…

      It’s 14 episodes split between 2012/13.
      The 6th episode is airing Christmas Day 2012.
      So, start on the 18th – 5 episodes takes you to the 15th of Sept.
      Then 13 episodes of Merlin means it’ll finish on the 15th of Dec and the following weekend is Christmas.

      That all seems to fit, and gives us a Merlin start date too. 😀

      Cheers,
      Dave

    Thanks
    Lisa

    • Andrew says:

      Lisa, if you have seen the episode where Mac is shot, then you have seen to the end of the series. There are 18 episodes. Slightly shorter than the usual 22 or 24, but more than 15. It will be back next year.

      • Lisa says:

        Ah thanks. The info for the last episode recorded mentions Mac being shot but we only have 15 so must have missed some along the way. Still at least we’ve got the end of the series!

  40. Paul says:

    Hi – What happened to ‘Jerry Bruckheimer’s Chase’ first aired last year on Sky Living I think? Has it been canned by NBC?
    Thanks

  41. Andrew says:

    Dave. Today is the day, is it not, when the date for Supernatural Series 7 is confirmed?

    Is it 18th July?

    Thanks

  42. John says:

  47. Jonathan says:

    Mad Men starts from the beginning (Season 1) tonight(19/06/12).

  48. Tahnee says:

    Hi there, I was just wondering when will true blood season 5 be released in the u.k . Thanks for your help x 🙂

  49. julie says:

    When will Flashpoint seasons 4 and 5 come back on Universal channel please ?

    • Andrew says:

      This question comes up frequently.

      There is no confirmation that Universal has the rights to series 4 broadcast in the UK. So unfortunately, unless anyone knows otherwise, it is a waiting game, just as it was when ITV stopped broadcasting it.

      Series 5 is still being made and Bell hasn’t even confirmed a date in Canada yet. So realistically it is going to be well into 2013 before we see it, although until there is any news about series 4, series 5 is moot.

      • julie says:

        Thanks Andrew, the last episode was left on a cliffer hanger with one of the leads being shot. Its unfair for the fans not let them know what happened next.

  50. Gripper says:

    Attention all Aaron Sorkin fans!

    The Newsroom starts on Sky Atlantic on July 10.

  51. Josie says:

    I know Supernatural Season 7 is ‘supposedly’ coming in July, but Sky Living are suspiciously quiet on the subject. Did you get anything concrete from them as to the delay and will they really actually ever show it?

    • Dave Elliott Dave says:

      Well, it’s been in the Sky’s trade press stuff for July, so I can only assume they have got it and aren’t going to move to back any further… The schedule currently goes up to 13th July and it’s not there yet. My guess is it’ll air the 18th July in Bedlam’s time slot (10pm). Should find out officially when they release the schedules this Wednesday. 🙂

  52. stacey says:

    when will antm 18 start

  53. Izzy says:

    When will Death Valley season 2 be showing again? I’ve been really missing it

  54. julie says:

    When will FLASHPOINT seasons 4 and 5 on Universal be shown please.

  55. Kirsty says:

    Im looking for…

    Touch season 2
    and
    Alcatraz season 2 🙂

    • Andrew says:

      For touch, providing Sky1 buys the second series, you will likely have to wait until March next year.

      For Alcatraz, as covered extensively on the much-overlooked cancellations and renewals page, I’m afraid the wait will be rather more infinite.

    • Robert says:

      Alcatraz has been cancelled by Fox so no Season 2

  56. Thomas says:

    What is NCIS:LA’s returning air date. It was last on Sky 1

    • Dave Elliott Dave says:

      NCIS:LA Season 4 will air Sept in the US. Sky usually hold it till Jan to remove the scheduling gaps, so i’d expect it Jan 2013, paired up with Hawaii 5-0 again.

  57. Sam says:

    Anyone know anything on the potential name change for cougar town? Dont wanna miss next season cos they have changed the name now do we

    • Dave Elliott Dave says:

      Hi Sam,

      No news on a name change for Cougar Town. It was suggested in 2010, as the show had strayed from that premise, but the idea was rejected.

      I think the only reason the idea was bought up again, was cause the show has jumped channels in the US, but they are saying it’s unlikely to change and will still be Cougar Town.

      You have to think it wouldn’t be the brightest move by the network… Buy a show, so you’re already having to tell people about the channel change, but changing the name as well… So it’s a show with a different name on a different network… Talk about making extra work for yourselves!… 😉

      I strongly suspect it’ll still be called Cougar Town.

  58. The Kingslayer says:

    I don’t suppose there’s anyone chance of a network showing the last season of Breaking Bad that starts in America this july ?

  59. Graham says:

    The bbc news story about Armando Iannucci being named in the honors list says that the thick of it returns for a new season in autumn

  60. david says:

    Emailed fx uk about the listener season 3 as it started airing on ctv in canada may 30th, bad news they replied sayin they have no plans to show season 3

  61. Talula says:

    Any idea when Cooper&Stone, CSI Miami, Raising Hope and Scandal will air over here? :]

  62. julie says:

    FLASHPOINT seasons 4 and 5 pleeease

  63. Sam says:

    Glee project season 2, anyone know anything?

  64. djnorthall says:

    Hi guys do you when arrow will be in the uk?
    Thanks

  65. Ira says:

    I am trying to find when Rizzoli and Isles season 3 will start on alibi.
    Thanks!
    I

  66. Mandy says:

    When will dexter series 7 be shown in uk thanks

    • Brian says:

      ‘Early 2013’ according to end of series 6 voiceover on FX.

    • Stephen says:

      During the closing credits of the final episode of season 6, I believe it was said that season 7 will be shown in the UK on FX some time early next year. I don’t think it was given an exact date.

  67. Halestone says:

    Does anyone know the Uk air date and channel for Californication Season 5?? Xx

  68. Debbie says:

    What’s the point in watching these series if they will not get renewed !!!

    • Sarah says:

      I suppose the same point as breathing when you know you’ll be dead eventually – just, enjoy the now while you can!

    • jamie says:

      I suppose there isn’t a point. But businesses have to make business decisions and sometimes that means they have to get rid of shows.

  69. Danielle James says:

    Any idea when teen mom season 4 is airing on MTV uk?

    • Claire says:

      from what i read a little while ago there won’t be a season 4 of teen mom the girls decided they didn’t want to continue but think teen mom 2 is still going

  70. Leigh-Anne says:

    Channel 5 have tweeted me saying that the lying game will be back next month

  71. julie says:

    FLASHPOINT was on UNIVERSAL channel

  72. Tevin says:

    Teen Wolf Season 2 is starting on Thursday 12th July 2012 at 8pm

  73. julie says:

    Any news about seasons 4 and 5 of FLASHPOINT in the UK ?

  74. Gemma says:

    Do you have any idea when the new series of The secret Circle starts in the UK or when the new series of Bones starts? They’ve both recently finished, Bones more recently than The secret circle but I’m itching to know when they are due to be back!

    Thanks

  75. Oya says:

    Hi
    Can you tell me has Harry’s Law (universal channel) been renewed for another season. Thanks

  76. Debbie says:

    Hi – please could you add Death Valley series 2 to your list and also Pysch. Most appreciated. Thanks

  77. tezza says:

    They are showing parenthood season 2 from the beginning on 5* starting Monday 18 June at 2pm. Maybe this time they will show more than the first few episodes we got to see, and we will get to watch the whole season, especially as we are so behind compared to the States

    • thetvking thetvking says:

      Yes tezza they are showing all of season 2 from the beginning but only at 2pm weekdays. So its unlikely they will bother buying the rights for season 3 and 4

  78. Donna says:

    Just tried to use my sky planner to record “Alan Partridge Welcome to the Places of my Life” scheduled on GeekTown to air on Sky Atlantic 21st June at 9pm but its not there? any news on a different date?

  79. Sue Welsby says:

    When will ghost adventures be shown in uk

  80. Pier Ceccarelli says:

    Any news about starting date for Suburgatory on E4? Thank you

    • Ross says:

      Nothing yet. I’d say Thursday 12th July would be a good bet though. ‘Don’t Trust The Bitch…’ and ‘Rules Of Engagement’ both finish on Thurs 5th so I have a feeling their slots may get filled by New Girl and Suburgatory.

  81. Alison Palette says:

    when will Teen Mom season 4 be shown in uk please? On MTV.

  82. Comedy Central Have Confirmed That Brand New USA Comedy Whitney Series 1 Will Start on Tuesday 3rd July 2012 at 9pm on Comedy Central According To TV Wise.

  83. Paul Wilson says:

    any news on being human USA?

    will be starting a 3rd season next year and i’ve always found it odd why its never aired here. i figured maybe the bbc could have been offered it but i at least expected it to show up on syfy

  84. Joe says:

    Just noticed that Finder has been picked up by universal, makes the the non pick up of White Collar look ridiculous!

  85. julie says:

    when is Flashpoint seasons 4 and 5 returning to universal channel in the uk ?

  86. gfunk says:

    anyone heard about new Bary Levinson BBC America series Copper which I caught a clip of on IMDB

  87. siobhan dawsonf says:

    It does say on the Sky Living website that Supernatural Season 7 is coming soon.

  88. Tracey says:

    hey

    any idea when walking dead season 3 on fx is on?
    also season 3 of secret circle on channel living?

    • Dave Elliott Dave says:

      Hi Tracey,

      Walking Dead Season 3 doesn’t air in US till Oct, but FX UK did run season 2 within a week of the US, so there’s a fair chance we’ll get it at the same time.

      Secret Circle Season 3… even less likely that it getting a season 2. 😉 Secret Circle was cancelled after 1 season.

      Cheers,
      Dave

  89. Sophie D says:

    Ok seriously why can’t Sky living get their act together and tell us when Supernatural is back on ? I mean they have said summer for a while and its obviously gonna be July but if it is in its wednesday night at 10 slot like it was last year then Bedlam has to finish and since that has possibly 4 episodes left then its like 5 weeks away right ? So why haven’t they started to show any adverts like they did last year or say something on the website? Im dying here 🙂

  90. kyle wray says:

    Power Rangers Samurai and Power Rangers Super Samurai are comig to channel 5 in the summer 2012

  91. Lisa says:

    Hi
    Do you have Uk air dates for Grey’s Anatomy? I know that the next series is a go ahead but would like to know when I will get to see the conclusion to the gripping finale of last season.
    Cheers

  92. Robert says:

    Also cant find any information on why Secret Circle was cancelled, also would tyou have an air date for the next season of Castle and No Ordinary family? Many thanks.

  93. Robert says:

    Was wondering if you knew when season 2 of Alcatraz was due.

  94. John Sturdy says:

    I noticed some comments on the series Weeds. I was a big fan but I lost track of it some time ago. The last one I saw the whole town was burning down. I think it was the season 4 finale, at the time I thought it was supposed to end there for good. Which is why I never kept an eye out for it’s return. I think we could do with sky 1 or Atlantic doing a full run from the start, well advertised in advance.

  95. John Sturdy says:

    Oh & the Secret Circle season 2, if it’s coming?

    • Dave Elliott Dave says:

      Hi John,

      You could search the list… a lot of these are in the list… 😉 However…

      Bones has a short season due to Emily Deschanel’s pregnancy. There are 4 more episodes filmed, but they’re being tagged onto Season 8.

      Tera Nova & Secret Circle were cancelled.

      Doctor Who & Merlin will be Autumn.

      Torchwood (assuming the get round to doing another one) won’t be till Autumn 2013 at the earliest I suspect.

      Supernatural Season 7 hasn’t aired here yet (airs in July) . So season 8 will be Spring 2013 (assuming Sky don’t drop it…)

      Sinbad airs in July.

      Nikita, Season 2 – Sky Living – 6th July 2012 at 9pm (TBC)

      The Lying Game – not sure yet…

      Cheers,
      Dave

  96. John Sturdy says:

    I haven’t watched the last one yet but Bones series 7 seems to have ended with only 13 episodes. Which can’t be right can it? Also I’m trying to find UK air dates for several shows, I’m hoping someone out there can help so here goes. Sinbad season 1, Nikita season 2, Supernatural season 8, Tera Nova season 2, The Lying Game season 1 return or season 2 start which ever it is. the next series of Doctor Who, Torchwood, & of course Merlin series 5 I think?

    • Andrew says:

      From your list, those that are known are set out below in the very comprehensive list. Those where dates are not yet known, are also set out below in the best guess category. Those, such as Terra nova, which have been cancelled, are not listed below, but are in fact listed on the aptly named “renewals and cancellations” page, which you can find by clicking on the UK Airdates tab at the top of the page.

      As Dave said, be it “right” or “wrong”, this season of Bones has 13 episodes as one of the leads is about to have a baby.

  97. Thornastor says:

    Dallas will start in September on Channel 5 !

  98. gfunk says:

    noticed you put down the new Spartacus x hope you all enjoy as this is the last series as they are bringing it to a natural end which is a total pisser like. this and Game of Thrones are the best tv programmes on the box i think

  99. gfunk says:

    also when is The Lying Game on 5star coming back only showed half the series

  100. gfunk says:

    whats this add for a new programme on watch tv starting the 5 july 2012

  101. Dave says:

    Any news if Sky Atlantic are going to show the new series of Weeds closer to the US airdate (think it starts in the next week or two over there).

    • Ross says:

      Doubtful. They’ve not shown season 7 yet and season 8 starts in the US in just over 3 weeks.

      • Dave says:

        Thanks for that, didn’t realise we were so far behind! They must lose a fair chunk of viewers if they’re expecting people to wait over a year in this day and age!

  102. Ross says:

    Parenthood season 2 makes a return to 5* next week after previously being pulled after only 5 episodes.
    Sadly, as I feared would be the case, they’re burning it off in daytime with a daily showing at 2pm. Season 2 starts from ep 1 on Monday (18th) so previously unaired episodes (ep 6 onwards) will commence weekdays from the following Monday (25th).
    I can’t imagine they’ll buy the rights to seasons 3 and 4 now…

  103. Danny says:

    Hey i just noticed that sky atlantic are showing mad men from the start (19/6) does anyone know if they will show all seasons? the only reason i ask is that i’ve really got into friday night lights and i found out that they might only show two seasons! cheers guys

  104. Sammi says:

    Hi, just read on wiki that Teen Wolf season 2 starts on July 12th,
    do you know if this is true?

  105. tronn says:

    burn notice season five is that right or is it a typo because season 6 is starting june 14 i think it is in the states are we a season behind here because i watched season five already via other options

    • Andrew says:

      Burn Notice series 5 has not yet been legally broadcast in the UK. It aired from September 2011 in the US. We are about 9 months behind.

      • tronn says:

        thats a shame i thought they would have shown season 5 already because the prequel movie fall of sam axe to season 5 came on here in december so i thought season 5 would have came on not long after that some of these sky channels are terrible supernatural season 7 aint even here yet (in the uk) or nikita and why cant they show true blood about a week or two after the states

  106. Libi says:

    Just saw the season finale of the Mentalist. When will the next season be broadcasted on Sky?

    • Andrew says:

      The Mentalist is broadcast first on Channel 5, not Sky. Barring any changes it will return in the autumn, closely after US broadcast, with the characteristic Christmas break.

  107. Jen says:

    I was wondering if anyone knows when marlin series 5 will be cuming back on bbc1??

  110. Ross says:

    So Comedy Central have decided to break-up 30 Rock again, ending the current run with episode 11 last week. No news on when eps 12-22 will be shown other than “later this year”, but it’s one to add to the AUTUMN 2012 list.

      Hi Ali,

      Bad news i’m afraid… C4 have dropped True Blood. The 2nd airing is now on Sky Atlantic, so you’re a bit stuffed unless you’ve got Sky i’m afraid…

      Cheers,
      Dave

  119. Hannah says:

    Hi, I only got into The Big Bang Theory earlier this year. I was able to catch it from the beginning till season 4 finale on the E4 weekday repeats but I only caught about the last quarter/third of season 5. I was wondering if anyone might know when E4 (maybe C4) is likely to repeat season 5 from the beginning?

    Thanks

  120. ian says:

    whens dr who being aired

    • Dave Elliott Dave says:

      Hi Ian,

      We don’t know about Doctor Who, other than ‘late’ 2012…

      *Spoilers*

      New companion appears in the 6th episode at Christmas, so that would mean the first half of the season could be anywhere between Sept and Nov…

      Cheers,

  135. digital artist says:

    for those of you who don’t want to wait for C4 to screen season 4 of true blood sky atlantic are showing it again wednesdays at 10.15 from next week the 13th (presumably part of their deal with HBO)

    • Ross says:

      How weird, so True Blood is now effectively showing on three different UK channels now.

    • Dave Elliott Dave says:

      Just checked with Channel 4. They no longer have the rights to True Blood… I’m fairly sure FXUK still have first run rights, it just means 2nd run rights are now on Sky Atlantic (sorry Freeview people).

      Cheers,
      Dave

  136. Lisa Lloyd says:

    Hi guys, can’t see any replies on Alcatraz yet? Anyone have any idea if there is a series 2?

    • Andrew says:

      Lisa, there is actually a fair bit on Alcatraz both on this page and on the Cancellations &Renewals page, where it is listed as cancelled.

      There will be no series 2.

      • Lisa Lloyd says:

        Thanks so much Andrew. Viewing the website on my phone and there is no cancellations and renewals page so I assume that my phone isn’t downloading the full website…will log on from the PC and check it out, thanks so much.

        • Andrew says:

          You will definitely see it on the computer, but I’m also viewin on my phone- if you scroll all the way to the horizontal menu at the top, click on the fifth tab along “Uk air dates”, and from the drop-down box select cancellations and renewals, you’ll get it all there.

          It’s a very very useful resource around April and May every year when the date of most American shows is decided.

  137. Marie says:

    Sorry to ask again so soon but can you please find out when Teen Mom season 4 will be shown in the UK on MTV

  138. Liam says:

    i can see season 7 of supernatural however i only got into this last year (friends suggestion) i have 1-5 on dvd but cannot find season 6. Is it being repeated at all, and if so where and when?

  139. Jemma says:

    When is secret circle back?

  140. Andrew says:

    Breaking Bad series 3 will “air” on Monday. Released on DVD.

    Series 4 will similarly bypass TV and go straight to DVD in October.

  141. jake says:

    do you know where castle has gone. it has been replaced by big brother on c5 at 10pm

    • Jen says:

      You’re better of watching it on alibi (assuming you get it) they repeat the earlier seasons and are years ahead of channel 5

  142. S j says:

    When will Being Erica return to E4. It has no specific date, only states 2012.

  143. Dale says:

    I think a pretty good guess for Supernatural’s return date would be Wednesday the 18th of July on Sky Living, straight after this series of Bedlam is finished… They like that timeslot for Supernatural I’m sure, and on their website they say for peoppe missing Supernatural to watch Bedlam, so they like to keep them pretty linked.

  144. Dave says:

    Veep Monday 25th June

  145. rhys morgan says:

    whens bones coming back? and whats this i hear about one-off episodes?

    • Andrew says:

      This current series has been subject to the a understanding maternity clause and is therefore shorter and more spread out than usual. There are four more episodes, nominally attached to this series, still to air.

      • Andy says:

        those four episodes are being held back for season eight as confirmed by Hart Hanson at the upfronts, tvwise, tvline, deadline, thr and ew all reported on it

  146. Sam says:

    don’t know if anyone cares since it is about USA schudule but you state falling skies isn’t airing in the usa till the summer but i’ve read it will start June 17

  147. Tracy says:

    “Haven” isn’t returning in the US until September 21st. I don’t know if this will change the air date over here.

    i am so annoyed no channel has picked up private practice you would think that sky living would giving that they should greys anatomy i mean they use to show PP but stopped and the uk is sooo behind like 2 SEASONS come on somebody pick it up its an awesome show!!!

  149. John Sturdy says:

    I’d like to know the exact UK air dates for Sinbad. Dr Who, Merlin & Bedlam season 2. Not to mention what on earth happened to the repeat of season 1. I saw the 1st 2 episodes then nothing. Oh & it’d be fantastic if any1 knows anything about a season 2 of the almighty johnsons?

    • Andrew says:

      As in the list above, Bedlam starts tonight. Specific dates for the others yet to be confirmed but rest assured when they are available, Dave will publish them here within seconds 🙂

    • Brian says:

      Going by current adverts Sinbad’s going to be part of Sky Sunday in July. So that narrows it down to the 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd or 29th of July.

    thanks
    Sarah

    • Dave Elliott Dave says:

      Hi Sarah,

      Rizzoli and Isles usually doesn’t air till Jan in the UK, although it has aired a month earlier in the US this time, so that may move it to Autumn over here. No confirmed date yet though.

      Cheers,
      Dave

  153. Gill says:

  155. Nicole says:

    Hi, Do you know when Suits will be returning on Dave Channel?

  156. Dan says:

    The Vampire diaries will air in October in America this year instead of September so I would say November for the airdate in the UK because they usually wait a month.

    • Dave Elliott Dave says:

      Humm… With them starting that late, that may tempt them to delay it till Jan, so they can run TVD straight through, rather than have the long gap they usually have… We’ll have to wait and see…

      Cheers,
      Dave

      • John Sturdy says:

        those gap they do are a real nightmare especially with the vampire diaries. being on ITV2 you’re lucky if you see any adds before the series 1st starts. You’ve got no chance when it returns, the gaps are so long you nearly forget by the time it’s back on. It’s nearly a miracle if you don’t miss at least one episode each time it comes back on. Fringe is nearly as bad, why oh why can’t they just run them right through, start to finnish? I’ll never understand.

        • Dave Elliott Dave says:

          It’s the US networks John unfortunately… They have a really erratic schedule, especially in the ‘Fall’ season, due to Thanksgiving, Christmas, and various sporting events.

          And it’s a balancing act for the UK channels. Sky get shouted at for running shows behind the US, but also get complains from erratic scheduling (caused by airing close to the US). Glee was a prime example. People moaned about all the breaks. So Sky waited to air it in one block, and people complained it wasn’t on air… Sometimes it’s a bit of a lose/lose. Having said that, they do sometimes take the p*ss – Supernatural being a prime example of that.

    Just seen an advert that says brand new episodes of New Girl coming soon on E4…i guess it’s moving channel after all….

    • thetvking thetvking says:

    Season 1 was aired last summer. It was repeated again this year 2-3 months ago and Season 2 has already been shown in America! Anyone know what’s going on with this?

    Also when are we going to get Season 3 of Bored To Death, also on Sky Atlantic?

  166. jamie says:

    Not much to go on, but sky never miss says HOT IN CLEVELAND returns in July.

  167. Sam says:

    I no its not popular over here and i hate to ask a third time but is there any info on the next season of top gear usa?

    • Andrew says:

      The first few episodes were dreadful (I was very close to cancelling the series link after the third time of hearing “welcome to Tap Gear”) but it slowly found its stride, and the interplay between the three hosts improved. Compared to our own, it is a poor cousin, but not a total washout.

      We have already had its first two series on BBC3. It will return for a third series on its host channel, History, but as there is no confirmed date for it in America, we don’t yet have one here either.

  168. Ross says:

    So a new promo on E4 would seem to suggest that New Girl is moving across from C4.
    Was a generic ‘This Summer’ promo that also included Suburgatory.
    I’d guess they’re maybe pairing the two together (possibly on Tuesdays?) unless they’re planning on waiting for available slots on Thursdays (nothing for at least 5 weeks there though).

    • thetvking thetvking says:

      Hi Ross

      I have seen the promo a few times on e4 as well. I have been in touch we Channel 4 and while they don’t have an air date for either New Girl or Suburgatory. The have confirmed that New Girl will return to Channel 4 this summer, possibly in June.

      Jason,

      No word, about Outlaw Empires on Discovery in the UK yet.

      Don’t confuse it with “The Devils Ride”, which is a completely different show made by Discovery. A show which Kurt Sutter has expressed his opinion about on Twitter and YouTube WTFSutter blogs.

    hi there, as an avid watcher of game of thrones on sky atlantic i was just wondering if any of the terrestrial t.v stations will pick up the rights to show it, as i have been raving to parents and they wany to watch it

    • Andrew says:

      There is no talk of a terrestrial airing, and given the relatively unique nature of Sky Atlantic, it seems to be fiercely protective of its purchases.

      That said, you can buy or rent series 1 of Game of Thrones on glorious Blu-Ray already, and is probably the best/only way for terrestrial and cable viewers.

  186. Andrew says:

    I watched the first two episodes of Boss on an aeroplane last week. It is extremely good, and very very difficult to imagine one is watching the same chap who played Frasier Crane. As the notes above state, it has been renewed for a second series, so I for one would be very keen indeed to see it appear on British TV, just not Sky Atlantic.

    Hello, do you know if Revolution (starting in autumn in the US on NBC) has been given a UK broadcaster yet? Revolution is a sci-fi show about all forms of electricity being switched off.
    Also, why has Parks and Recreation not been picked up yet? Thank you.

    • Dave Elliott Dave says:

      Hiya, way too early to say yet, as they may want to see rating on it first. JJ Abrams shows usually do get picked up, but they’re a bit hit and miss in the ratings, so it may not air here until they can gauge it’s worth (meaning it could be 2013 before we get it.)

      Cheers,

    Hi there,

    How come Supernatural is in the July section when next to it say’s June? Does anyone konw when its going to air?

    Also I guess Hot in Cleveland has been chopped by Sky living which really sucks.

    I think it might be time for me to buy myself a Laptop and start watching online and downloading series from other soureces, can’t stand the way UK television networks drops series you like. I hate when America cancels shows and I think the UK is getting the same. But that is just my opinon.

    • Dave Elliott Dave says:

      Hi Liam,

      Supernatural is definitely July, i just forgot to change the month.

      Not sure what’s happening with Hot In Cleveland. Sky say they haven’t dropped it, and it was supposed to be back in May… But it’s not in any of the preview stuff, which goes up to July (although that doesn’t mean it won’t pop up somewhere…)

      Cheers,
      Dave

      • Andrew says:

        The British channels have no say on the cancellations of American programmes. It is probably just as frustrating for them, having paid for broadcast rights for a popular programme, only for it to be discontinued.

        It is an awful lot better than the situation in the mid-80s when we had to wait far longer for one of the four channels to broadcast American greats like the A team or Airwolf, but there was no Internet then to check episode lists or American broadcast dates, and the term “download” was probably considered to be the opposite of “up high”.

        Chin up!
