Review: The light of 'The Flash' has cast an unflattering shadow over 'Arrow' this season

In which things got too grim and brooding even for Oliver Queen and friends

"Arrow" ended its third season last night, and I have some thoughts on the season (and a bit on the finale) coming up just as soon as this place has a hot tub...

Review: FOX's 'Wayward Pines' a town of second-hand mysteries

Matt Dillon can't get out of a town that's not interesting enough for the secret to matter

In FOX's "Wayward Pines," a Secret Service agent played by Matt Dillon finds himself trapped in a remote Idaho town from which he's not allowed to leave. No one will tell him why he can't go, nor why any of the other weird things happen in a place where the residents are paranoid, bloodthirsty, and under constant surveillance.

Firewall & Iceberg, Episode 282: 'Wayward Pines,' 'Bessie' & 'Mad Men'

Dan and Alan predict how things might end for Don, Peggy and the rest


Happy Tuesday Wednesday, boys and girls! We actually started recording this week's Firewall & Iceberg Podcast yesterday, but the Skype connection dropped out so often that we eventually tabled the thing and hoped conditions would improve today. They did not, but we powered through anyway, so you could hear us discuss "Wayward Pines," HBO's "Bessie," and the penultimate "Mad Men." And as a bonus, you can have fun playing Spot the Edit!

We should be back on Friday to talk about the upfronts, and next week we'll do a farewell to "Mad Men" podcast, so start sending in those questions.

'CSI' to conclude with two-hour special, Ted Danson moving to 'CSI: Cyber'

Original castmembers like William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger will return for farewell

CBS owes a great deal of its success over the past 15 years to the original "CSI," which is why it's getting the grand farewell treatment its spin-offs didn't. "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" has been canceled, but there will be a two-hour finale special on September 27, bringing back original castmembers including William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger.

With ‘Agent Carter,’ ‘Wicked City’ & more, ABC wants viewers to mind the gap

Timeslot sharing becomes more and more common as audiences lose patience with repeats

Different network executives have different buzzwords or phrases they like to lean on at upfront time. When Les Moonves was more day-to-day with CBS primetime, for instance, he loved to pepper his remarks to the press and advertisers with "make no mistake" and "clearly." For the last few years, ABC's Paul Lee has gone strong with "delicious" to describe anything he likes. But the Word of the Day for Lee's press call to discuss next season's schedule (Fienberg has all the details here) was "gap," as Lee talked about all the timeslots that will be shared next season, as one show fills the gap while another takes a break at mid-season.
