Battlestar Galactica Finale Split In Two Parts

By Michael Hinman,SyFy Portal
February 16,2009

The final episode of "Battlestar Galactica" will indeed be three hours long, and SciFi Channel plans to air the end of what some hail as the most powerful science-fiction series of all time as a two-part special.

The first hour-long part will air in its normal timeslot of March 13 at 10 p.m. ET on SciFi Channel, followed by a two-parter March 20 beginning at an earlier 9 p.m. to account for the two hours. For fans who don't want to wait between episodes, SciFi Channel plans to re-air the March 13 episode at 8 p.m. ET on March 20, allowing those who want to watch it straight through to do just that, a SciFi Channel spokeswoman tells SyFy Portal.

The split doesn't actually add a week to the series, but instead uses the ninth episode as a one-hour setup for the two-hour finale, thus creating a three-hour finale over two weeks (and three episode slots, which would actually bring the total number of hours in this half of the season to 11).

Iron Man 2: Scarlett Johansson to replace Emily Blunt ?



By Nicole Sperling,hollywoodinsider.ew.com
February 13,2009

Because Emily Blunt's commitment to Twentieth Century Fox and the studio's upcoming Gulliver's Travels movie may prohibit her from costarring in Iron Man 2, Marvel is in discussions with other actresses, most significantly Scarlett Johansson, to take her place, EW has learned exclusively. Marvel will not confirm, but sources around Hollywood say Johansson has indeed met with the filmmakers and is interested in taking the role of Russian superspy Natasha Romanoff, who doubles as Black Widow. Blunt's reps are still trying to make both projects work, but Gulliver's is further along, with a start date of April 15. Iron Man 2 still doesn't have a shooting script and a start date has not yet been determined. Read more!

Know your fall TV pilots! Cop, doctor, lawyer, remake or a new idea ?

By James Hibberd,thrfeed.com
February 5,2009

"We want a 'Mentalist'!" network executives cry.

This pilot season, broadcasters are ordering more of what's been working: close-ended procedural stories.

Cops, doctors and lawyers are in.

Serialized and complex story lines or quirky subjects are out.

About two thirds of the current crop of major network TV pilots are considered workplace procedurals. There's also several pre-branded projects such as new versions of "V" and "Witches of Eastwick" -- familiar-sounding remakes that attract networks even though they're not perfectly formulaic. Also, expect a few apocalyptic stories thrown in for good measure.

Fox's medical marvel stays on top: 'House' reaches its 100th episode



By Diane Werts,Variety
January 29,2009

Imagine a blend of TV heroes Dr. Kildare, Ironside and Gil Grissom. Now throw in Monty Python and Mick Jagger.

"You can't always get what you want," runs the Rolling Stones riff heard in the pilot of "House," but in this mad mix of a medical mystery series, Fox executives got more than they needed or even dreamed. One hundred episodes later, "House" remains a network mainstay.

"This is one of our crown jewels," says Fox Entertainment president Kevin Reilly. "It's the fall linchpin that I'm building the schedule around" until "American Idol" relaunches each winter.

Not only did "House" finish the 2007-08 season as one of primetime's most-watched dramas, but its ascendance since its November 2004 debut sped Fox's evolution from insurgent youth to steady maturity.

"'House,' along with '24,' really established (Fox Broadcasting Co.) as a place for high-quality dramas," says Peter Liguori, who rose alongside "House" from his position as programming president 2004-2007 to Fox Entertainment chairman. "It allowed us to become a home for the creative community to come to for episodic character-driven shows."

And all Fox wanted back in 2004 was a reliable procedural, recalls series creator and executive producer David Shore.
