In this edition of Brusimm’s piece of TV news, we chat about…

  • A show that Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie are starring in together,
  • About a Boy,
  • Agents of SHIELD (Edward James Olmos joining the cast),
  • Bates Motel,
  • Bob’s Burgers,
  • Daredevil on Netflix,
  • Glee,
  • HBO’s Game of Thrones,
  • HBO’s Veep,
  • HBO’s Silicon Valley,
  • Mad Men,
  • Sons of Anarchy (Reflection on their overall TV ratings), &
  • The Walking Dead

Is About A Boy in danger? NBC reduced it’s episode order of its second season down to 20. Sometimes when a show gets its episode order reduced, that means it is not holding its weight in the ratings as well as the network would like. So prepare thyself, just in case. Though to reduce it by just a few episodes and still have 20 episodes to a season isn’t too shabby of a situation.

Edward James Olmos joined Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, and he will be seen when the show returns from its mid-season break, in March. It’s been said when his character, Robert Gonzales, first appears, everyone will take notice.

Bates Motel returns for its third season to A&E on March 9th, 2015.

Bob’s Burgers was renewed by Fox for its sixth season.

Daredevil will be premiering on Netflix on April 10th, 2015. There will be 13 one-hour episodes.
