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.

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!

Super Bowl XLVI

February 6th, 2012

Did you catch the game last night?

Last night wasn’t just any Sunday night football game, it was the 46th annual NFL Super Bowl. The AFC’s New England Patriots went head to head against the NFC’s New York Giants.

With a projected viewership of 117 million for the event televised by NBC, nearly half the country tuned in to watch Super Bowl XLVI, 6 million more than the 2011 Super Bowl. According to Twitter there were nearly 10,000 tweets every second for the last three minutes of the Super Bowl, and Bluefin Labs has tracked 12.2 million comments about the Super Bowl in total across Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites. Bluefin advises that the Super Bowl commercials alone generated 985,000 social media comments, topping the entire telecast of the 2011 Academy Awards by nearly 20,000.

Super Bowl XLVI is the new biggest social media-TV event ever, blowing past the previous record holder – the 2011 MTV VMAs that only garnered 3.1 million social media comments. Did you catch the action?
