Jeremy Likes TV

I like TV. Probably more than any human should.

Morning Links: 2/24/12

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. Let’s move forward towards the weekend the right way:

*FX intelligently renewed its genius animated comedy Archer for a 13-episode fourth season which really wasn’t a surprise when you consider that: A. It’s the best thing on television right now; and B. That it’s a solid performer for the network. Coupled with the news that the network has also signed a deal with Archer creator Adam Reed’s production company, The AV Club speculates that this means that the show will ultimately run at least through a seventh or eighth season so that the show can be sold into syndication, which is extra great news. EW also has the first look at the character Bryan Cranston will be voicing in the show’s upcoming two-part season finale (I has a sad since that’s less than a month away).

*Friday Night Lights-related news? You’re damn right I’m linking it. Julie Taylor herself, Aimee Teegarden, has been cast as the lead in The CW’s Hunger Games­­-recalling pilot The Selection. You have just sealed my participation in this show, CW. (Via The Hollywood Reporter)

*Remember that cult drama for NBC that I pooped all over the other day? Yeah… might be changing my tune now that Terriers’ Michael Raymond-James has been added to the cast. Just like Friday Night Lights, I will follow a Terriers cast member almost anywhere. (Via TVLine)

*People apparently can’t get enough of a British soap. The second-season finale of PBS’s Downton Abbey notched 5.4 million viewers, becoming the highest-rated show on PBS since 2009. (Via The Hollywood Reporter)

*Stevie Nicks… Up All Night<tries not to hyperventilate> (Via EW)

*Ben got a show so OF COURSE Noel got one too. Decide already, universe! #Felicityjokes (Via The Hollywood Reporter)

*Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis in a 1960s set Western for CBS? Color me intrigued. (Via The Hollywood Reporter)

*Sweet Jerry from Parks And Recreation mash-up, NBC.com. The guy might currently hold the position as TV’s best punching bag. (Via Hitfix)
