TV is back in time for the frigid winter cold! Last week had the return of many network shows after going on winter hiatus for the holidays. This week, a bunch of cable shows are starting up to keep things lively.
While Glee still has a passionate fan base, it’s a fraction of the size it used to be. Ergo, the show is now banished to Friday nights to finish up its shortened final season.
The Golden Globes are back with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as hosts! Get ready for some fun and funny!
HBO and Showtime are piling on new shows for Sunday! Recently renewed, Girls is back as well as Looking. Togetherness, a show about 2 couples who live together, joins the crew to round out HBO’s schedule. Over on Showtime, they have the new seasons for Shameless, House of Lies and Episodes.
Anyone want another sneak peak at the new Avengers: Age of Ultron movie? There’s a new trailer that debuts during the college football championship game on ESPN. Provided Hydra doesn’t leak it early again…
It’s the final episodes on Pawnee, IN! Parks and Recreation starts up its final season on Tuesday. Look for Andy to make a visit to Chicago and contemplate potential life changes.

Game of Thrones at the movies!!
Game of Thrones is getting the IMAX treatment – sort of! No, this isn’t the rumored movie that will cap off the series. On January 23rd, IMAX will show the last 2 episodes on the big screen. This will basically feature The Battle of Castle Black and the finale.
If you want to see Game of Thrones a little more close up, catch The Game of Thrones: The Exhibition which is headed to London, Stockholm, Tel Aviv, Madrid, Berlin, Amsterdam and Paris. You’ll be able to see all sorts of costumes and props in person and going through the Oculus Rift experience.
Galavant galvanized audiences with a nice debut on Sunday. Time will tell if people will return for another pair of episodes next week. In case you missed it, they are replaying the pilot after Black-ish tonight.
Meanwhile Marvel’s Agent Carter had a respectable, but not spectacular debut. The ratings should uptick once the DVR views get tallied. If the ratings are good, the creators are ready to work on a second season.
We will learn less About a Boy this year since the show is getting a few episodes chopped this season. The show’s future isn’t clear yet, but this isn’t a good sign…
Mike the Fanboy just loves to talk about show cancellations so he’s already announced the end of the (Covert) Affair. Sadly there is more news along those lines. Chris Carter’s Netflix series, The After won’t be living happily ever after. After the phenomenal success of The X-Files, Chris has had a hard time cracking a new show.
