tv newsHey gang! I thought I’d toss out some reminders on mid-season premiere TV news, a bit on Law & Order SVU, what the CW is replacing Emily Owens with, and a few new shows that Bravo is ordering up.

First and foremost…

I wanted to remind you that a few networks have released their 2012-2013 TV TV season.    CBS released their February premiere dates, as did ABC release their January premiere dates… Aaand NBC dropped their January premiere dates.

With that said,

Did you know that Law & Order: SVU is the fifth longest running scripted series on air?  It’s only preceded by Gunsmoke (1955-75), original Law & Order (1990-2010), Lassie (1954-71, plus 1971-74 in first-run syndication) and ER (1994-2009).

Also, you might be interested to know that NBC has ordered 2 more episodes of the series this season, bringing the season tally to 24 episodes for the 2012-2013 TV season.

The CW Replaces Emily Owens

The CW has put Cult in place of Emily Owens, which will be premiering on February 19th, 2013.  It has a 13 episode order.

It’s about an inquisitive young female production assistant (Jessica Lucas) on a popular TV show called Cult, who joins forces with an investigative journalist (Matt Davis) and they investigate the possibility of fans of the show who might be re-creating crimes seen on the show.

So great, a confusing premise full of real-life potential.  Like some folks didn’t already need ideas!

If you’re a BRAVO network fan/viewer, you might be interested to know that they’ve decided to check out the world of scripted drama, versus some of the other “fare” they televise.

They’ve snagged two such scripted pieces, called The Joneses and Rita.

The Joneses is a remake of a drama by the same name with Demi Moore/David Duchovny.

Rita is an adaption of the Danish series.  It’s about an outspoken school teacher who is also trying to raise three teenagers.
