Five Comedies Coming in October

September 23rd, 2013

The excitement is continuing to build as the 2013-2014 TV season unveils old favorites and new shows week by week with the kickoff of Fall 2013. Dramas and comedies pretty much form the basis of new shows every year, and this season is looking to stay within that line. Everyone has enough drama in their life to deal with, so we at Cannon thought we would outline a set of new comedies that are set to premier in October (which may be arriving sooner than you think).

Super Fun Night (ABC, Oct. 2)

Rebel Wilson, who gained big fame after big hits like Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect is back with a new show written by and starring her titled Super Fun Night. The premise sounds simple enough: A bunch of women reserve every Friday night for a mix of rowdy fun and possible trouble. Everything goes smoothly until the lead character played by Wilson decides to invite an attorney along for the ride, potentially compromising the integrity of the famed Friday night.

Welcome to the Family (NBC, Oct. 3)

Mike O’Malley, that guy that you see in all kinds of commercials and shows everywhere is back in another show from NBC titled Welcome to the Family. The show sounds to be a comedic Romeo and Juliet story that has been simmered down for the primetime crowd. Two children of differing families begin to date – one Latino, the other Caucasian – and eventually decide to marry after pregnancy ensues. The result is a pushed cohesion of the two families, and all of the shenanigans ensue.

Sean Saves the World (NBC, Oct. 3)

Already immortalized from Will and Grace fame, Sean Hayes is taking back the screen this season with Sean Saves the World sounds to be a classic family balance story, caught up with the modern times. With other shows like Modern Family tackling and bringing issues of LGBT parents and families to the main screen, Sean Saves the World looks to be continuing the momentum.

Hayes plays Sean, successful at his job and recently divorced. His daughter comes into his life, and accepts his role and responsibility as a father. Demands from work pile high, and we witness Sean take on the responsibilities of single fatherhood and professional. Sounds to carry the safe comedy formula that other primetime networks have caught onto, but Hayes is likely to give a great performance.

The Michael J. Fox Show (NBC)

Michael J. Fox has proven over and over again that Parkinson’s Disease doesn’t have to mean the end of the road. He has appeared in various shows and films since revealing his disease more than a decade ago (though he has had it since 1991), and now he is back in his own premier show on NBC. He plays Mike Henry, a popular news anchor who is forced to leave his position after getting Parkinson’s. After a few years out of the loop, he decides to get back in to the game, with the trials and tribulations you might expect.

The Millers (CBS)

Loaded with plenty of familiar faces, The Millers is another family-based (but probably not appropriate) series staring Will Arnett, Beau Bridges and Margo Martindale (with others). One divorce follows another divorce all within the same family, and complications arise from all four corners.

What’s the deal with the Time Warner blackout?

August 12th, 2013


If you, or someone you know has Time Warner Cable and is living in the Los Angeles, New York or Dallas area, you might already be familiar with the fact that CBS is currently not available. CBS? A channel that carries a great a deal of programming from NFL coverage to all of those primetime shows? Yeah. Imagine not having that for more than a week now, all because of problems with how much Time Warner is willing to pay CBS for local channel fees.

Being in major American cities, this blackout is a pretty big deal. In fact, over 3 million customers are currently without CBS, and no one is really happy that any of this is happening in the first place. The worst part about the whole thing is that as of right now, there’s no saying when the situation will come to an end.

This isn’t exactly the kind of the thing that any customer of Time Warner would want to be hearing right now. Imagine if this were during NFL season, where CBS gives a great deal of coverage on Sundays…It’s safe to say that no person would want to be in the house of a serious NFL fan having to miss out on their team .

TWC customers have had to resort to other options to check out the CBS programming that they have been waiting on either through the Internet, or through other channels (mostly for sports programming such as the PGA Championship that happened this past weekend).

Customers of DISH Network currently aren’t being subjected to any blackouts of any kind, so the channels that you want are there when you’re ready for them. Are you a Time Warner customer that has had enough with this blackout situation, see how DISH Network from Cannon Satellite can bring you the channels that you’re looking for at any time.

Primetime Anytime

February 29th, 2012

DISH Network’s new Hopper whole-home DVR system wowed the crowds at the 2012 International CES, the world’s largest consumer technology trade show. Along with the 2TB hard drive and the innovative “Joey” client receivers, which allow you to bring the TV and DVR in up to four rooms of your house, the new PrimeTime Anytime feature was very impressive.

The Hopper’s exclusive PrimeTime Anytime feature gives you instant OnDemand access to three hours per night of HD primetime programming on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC. These shows will be available for up to 8 days from the initial due date. No more having to remember to set your DVR or having to choose between your favorite shows. Best of all you still have two tuners to use to record or watch other shows during primetime, and it doesn’t take up any of your personal DVR space, so you still have enough room for over 250 hours of HD programming available.

The opportunity to watch all of the best primetime shows OnDemand and still watch and record other programming, all while conserving space on the 2TB hard drive? Sounds like the perfect solution for the TV lover in all of us!
