Wednesday’s TV Headlines: WEEDS, ABC and ELLEN

According to our friends over at BuzzSugar, the third season premiere of WEEDS attracted a record 824,000 viewers on Monday night, up a staggering 43% over last season’s premiere. Anyone in Hollywood still want to argue against leaking shows early on BitTorrent? Anyone… Bueller…

Billboard is reporting that in an effort to promote the fall season, ABC is producing music videos for several of its new and returning shows, including UGLY BETTY, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, GREY’S ANATOMY, BROTHERS AND SISTERS and more. Music videos, we’re cool with. But listen up ABC. If we have to hear The Fray’s HOW TO SAVE A LIFE one more time, we’re going to have to check ourselves into Seattle Grace.

Ellen DeGeneres has signed a deal with TBS to shoot a two-hour variety show this November at the Comedy Festival in Las Vegas. As a result, TBS has re-earned the slogan this TV Addict took away from them after making me sit through the premiere of THE BILL ENGVALL SHOW. Congrats TBS. Ellen Degeneres, very funny. Bill Engvall, not so much.

  • In addition to banning The Fray’s “How to Save a Life,” I’d like KT Tunstall’s “Suddenly I See” to go away – far away.

    Well, it did leak last year, as well.
