Touch (Cropped)

CHICAGO – Good news, bad news for fans of FOX dramas. To no one’s surprise, FOX has pulled the plug on their highly-promoted “Alcatraz” as ratings plummeted throughout the season. A little more surprisingly, they’ve decided to give “Touch” with Kiefer Sutherland more time to find an audience.

TV News: FOX Renews ‘Fringe’ For Fifth Season

CHICAGOFOX announced today that they have renewed their three biggest critical hits, the Tuesday night comedies “New Girl,” “Raising Hope,” and “Glee.” Kevin Reilly, President of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company, made the announcement via press release, in advance of the company’s official May Fall schedule announcement.

Film Review: Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum Have Fun on ‘21 Jump Street’

TV Review: FOX Tries Four Comedies on Tuesdays with Varied Results

CHICAGO – Networks have long attempted four consecutive comedies on one night but it’s not a common thing to find on FOX (at least not live-action).

Blu-ray Review: Latest Volumes of Animated Hits ‘The Simpsons,’ ‘Futurama’

The Simpsons S14

CHICAGO – If one were listing the most influential people in the history of television, right there next to legends like Rod Serling, Gene Roddenberry, and Norman Lear, would have to lie Matt Groening, the man who reinvented TV animation for all time.

We’ve said it before — Fox animation is the standard when it comes to TV on Blu-ray.
