I like TV. Probably more than any human should.

Morning Links: 3/7/12

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 do the damn thing:

*FX announced Tuesday that it’s renewing Justified for a fourth season that will begin in early 2013. Really, the only thing that’s surprising about this news is that it took this long. Justified aired its eighth out of 13 episodes last night and for a show that’s a solid performer for the network and that enjoys pretty unanimous critical praise, you’d think that FX would have given another season the green light weeks ago. Whatever the reason for the delay, more Justified is nothing but good for viewers and when you consider that shows that make it to year four often go on for two or three more, it looks like there’s much, much more Raylan Givens in our futures. Again, that’s a great thing. (Via Hitfix)

*Ah, shit… I’m gonna have to watch Nashville now, aren’t I? If I suffered through five episodes of American Horror Story almost solely because of Friday Night Lights alum Connie Britton’s involvement, surely I can give Nashville a chance now that she’s signed on for a co-starring role. Plus Powers Boothe (Deadwood) and Robert Wisdom (The Wire) are also in the cast. It can’t be THAT bad, right? (Via The Hollywood Reporter)

*NBC’s Smash was up 17% from last week, likely aided by repeats on CBS and ABC Monday night but still good news for the fledgling show. I’m through the first three episodes and, while it’s not anything approaching a great show, frankly, it’s The Wire compared to the similarly themed Glee. (Via EW)

*Film legend Sigourney Weaver has signed on to star in a new USA drama that seems loosely based on Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton. Sigourney Weaver on USA? Weird combo. (Via EW)

*Seriously… shut up already, Kirk Cameron. (Via The AV Club)
