Jeremy Likes TV

I like TV. Probably more than any human should.

Morning Links: 2/21/12

Welcome to the Morning Links. Each weekday, I’ll provide you with some interesting television-related news items culled from the various TV websites I frequent on a regular basis with a slight bit of commentary attached. Pretty straightforward – no fuss, no muss. Back after a long weekend with some links for everyone:

*AMC’s released a season five Mad Men trailer that, in typical Mad Men fashion reveals nothing about the new season. Still does nothing to dampen my anticipation for its March 25 season premiere though. (Via EW)

*The Colbert Report resumed production yesterday after an abrupt shutdown, reportedly attributed to the ill health of Stephen Colbert’s 91-year-old mother. Colbert tweeted a note of thanks to his followers over the weekend and, again, here’s hoping that everything is OK with Colbert and his family. (Via The Hollywood Reporter)

*Interesting essay by The AV Club’s Ryan McGee on whether the approach that The Sopranos took to storytelling has actually hurt HBO in the long run. (Via The AV Club)

*Matthew Perry’s booked a guest-starring arc on CBS’s The Good Wife beginning at the end of March. If I were involved at all in The Good Wife, I’d be a little worried. I’m not saying that Perry’s at Ted McGinley levels yet but all of the shows that he’s had a significant presence on post-Friends (Scrubs, Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip, Mr. Sunshine) all have something in common – they’re not on the air anymore. (Via EW)

*The AV Club has a cool new video show up called Who Won TV? that looks back at the best moments in the previous week of television. The debut episode is up here.

*Shawn Ryan apparently has a thing for dudes who were on Felicity, casting Scott Speedman in his new ABC project, Last Resort. (Via TVLine)

*The legendary Donald Sutherland will be starring in a comedy pilot from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia co-creator Rob McElhenney and Rob Rosell called Living Loaded. Sutherland will play the father of a blogger (Mike Vogel of the surely cancelled Pan Am) who runs an NPR station. (Via The AV Club)

*Uh… Joan Rivers is kind of awesome. (Via Warming Glow)

*Little word of warning to those opposing marriage equality in Maryland: Omar comin.’ (Via The AV Club)
