Today I have a collective of TV news bits for Grimm, Justified, Revolution, Futurama, Glee, Graceland, and a few other things.  (From various releases and sources.)

Grimm Alert!

Last week’s episode, as you know by now, did not air due to the coverage of capturing the Boston Marathon Bomber. But what is happening with Grimm now is a two-fold process:  It looks like last week’s episode of Grimm is airing this Friday and then the show will be moving to its new night.

Grimm will be airing on Tuesday nights, staring next week. (Ready for Love ain’t ready for TV.)

Justified fans might be feeling more justified!

The last (fourth) season of Justified was it’s best, averaging just over 4 million viewers an episode. It’s a fun show with an awesome cast of characters.

On the upcoming third season of AMC’s The Killing, this time around, they’ll be chasing a serial killer.

There’s an odd U.S. pitch about how there’s a new killer on the scene and that will help draw in new viewers. But the Danish series this was based on, is formulated that way. It’s what made the show so popular, that there’s a new case every season.

I can’t wait. I think AMC learned their lesson with their screw up last time and I think tuning in to watch The Killing will be worth it.

A foot note on Revolution: It seems they heard the fans about that whiny “we’re family” mode of Tracy’s character and since the mid-season break, “Charlie” is acting more the revolutionist than before. It’s a nice, refreshing spin and the show does seem to have improved and feels more entertaining this time around.

And it’s now averaging around 6 million viewers a night, so I’m thinking many others feel the same way.

Hopefully you weren’t hooked on Ready for Love. It was performing poorly and NBC has pulled it after only two episodes. I guess we already have our fill of shows with pandered “love” in it.

Starting April 30th, Grimm will take its place, moving from Fridays to Tuesdays.

Speaking of dumped, Comedy Central, the savior of Futurama, has decided enough is enough and has chosen to not renew the series.

Fans might be fervent, but when there are so few of them, it doesn’t pan out for a network.

Glee was renewed for two more seasons, making that its fifth and sixth seasons. If it continues to pull its weight. I know that excites you beyond all hope.

If you can’t wait for Graceland to being its new season on USA, the premiere will be available, starting April 29th, on your On Demand service from most cable providers.

If you’re wondering what happened to that B* in Apartment 23, yes, ratings were dismal and ABC yanked it. Yes, ABC put it the time slot that killed it. But that’s for another day.

But if you were a fan, ABC is “airing” the final eight episodes online, at ABC.com, Hulu and iTunes.

The X-Factor might be having budget issues because they’re only going with one host in the third season, and that’s Mario Lopez.

Also, in case you forgot, L.A. Reid and Britney Spears have left the show.
