House of Cards Returns for Third Season February 27th on Netflix
House of Cards
The third season of Netflix political drama House of Cards, featuring Oscar winner Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly and Michael Gill, will be available for streaming on Friday, February 27, 2015. The third season is comprised of 13 new episodes, bringing the total to 39.

House of Cards was adapted from BBC’s miniseries of the same name and based on the novel by Michael Dobbs, and tells the story of Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey), a Democrat from South Carolina's 5th congressional district and House majority whip who, after being passed over for appointment as Secretary of State, initiates a plan to get himself into a position of power. 
 
House of Cards helped put Netflix on the map. Netflix doesn't reveal viewership numbers for its original series, but an unofficial estimate from Procera claimed that 5 percent to 15 percent of Netflix subscribers watched at least one episode of House of Cards Season 2 on its opening weekend. We may get a better sense of viewership soon, as Nielsen will start measuring streaming services starting this month.

House of Cards received nine Primetime Emmy Award nominations in season one, becoming the first original online-only web television series to receive major Emmy recognition.  Season two resulted in 13 nominations (including Outstanding Drama Series in both years).  The drama, to-date, has won four Emmys.

AMC Announces Premiere Date for BETTER CALL SAUL

Better Call Saul Sneak Peak on AMC

Fans got a sneak peak of the highly anticipated Breaking Bad prequel during the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead last Sunday, as AMC has announced a two-night premiere on Sunday, February 8 at 10PM ET, with a second episode airing the next day, Monday, February 9th also at 10PM ET, the series will remain in the Monday hour.

Better Call Saul features Bob Odenkirk as Saul Goodman, and takes place "about half a decade before Walter White meets Saul Goodman" and raises the questions of how and why McGill turns into the crooked criminal lawyer who would later become Walter White’s (Bryan Cranston) attorney. The series was created by Vince Gilligan, the creator, head writer and executive producer of Breaking Bad, co-creator of The Lone Gunmen, and a writer and producer for The X-Files.  Gilligan and Peter Gould talk about Saul here.

 

Breaking Bad favorite Jonathan Banks will be a series regular on the show and will be joined by new cast members Michael McKean, Rhea Seehorn and Patrick Fabian. It's doubtful that Aaron Paul will return as Jesse Pinkman, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

See I Love Lucy Live and in Color!
  

Photos by: Ed Krieger

Thea Brooks as Lucy and Euriamis Losada as Ricky in “I Love Lucy: Live on Stage.”

 

Everyone loves I Love Lucy, the black-and-white sit-com originally ran from October 15, 1951, to May 6, 1957, long before Thea Brooks or Euriamis Losada the stars of “I Love Lucy Live on Stage,” were born. 

The audience of "I Love Lucy Live on Stage" will be taken back to 1952. There they become part of a studio audience watching back-to-back episodes of I Love Lucy be filmed. Not only do they see Lucy up to her usual shenanigans, pulling in her husband, Ricky, and their neighbors Fred and Ethel, but people are also treated to jingle-driven commercials of the period for Brylcreem, Halo shampoo and Alka-Seltzer.

The stage show opens Tuesday in San Francisco at the SHN Curran Theatre, and runs until November 23rd.

“A family friend who was a Lucy fanatic sent us various fridge magnets, so Lucy was always around when I would go get milk,” says Brooks, who plays Lucy. “My mother was a hippie and I was sort of raised without television. I learned more in my comedy research when I was in college and really started to enjoy her then.” Brooks told 

Born in Santa Fe, Cuba, Losada was 6 when he emigrated to Miami. “I remember my dad being very proud that a Cuban had made such a success in American entertainment.”

Before it was called binge-watching, teenage Losada did just that with “Lucy” DVDs and a secret ingredient. “Every time I watch an episode now I get a craving for ice cream,” he laughs, “but I have to resist so I can lift those congas every night!”

I Love Lucy is considered by many to be one of the best and most important television series ever made, The show was the first scripted television program to be shot on 35 mm film in front of a studio audience, it won five Emmy Awards and received numerous nominations. Another award that the show won was the coveted George Foster Peabody Award for "recognition of distinguished achievement in television." In 2012 it was voted the 'Best TV Show of All Time' in a survey conducted by ABC News and People Magazine. All this while revitalizing the career path for “Queen of the Bs” film star Lucille Ball, it made a household name of Cuban-American her then-husband bandleader Desi Arnaz, and it led a number of production innovations that are now industry standards, including filming with three cameras in front of a live audience.

All these elements contribute to the touring production that builds an evening around the filming of two I Love Lucy episodes where the audience in the Curran fills in for the Desilu Studios audience of almost 65 years ago.

Adding to the recreation are onstage musician filling in for Desi’s band and allowing Losada, a gifted singer, to croon a few signature Arnaz tunes. Both Brooks and Losada have been touched by how much the characters of Lucy and Ricky Ricardo and their neighbors Fred and Ethel Mertz, portrayed in the show by Kevin Remington and Lori Hammel, mean to people.

“I met a young married couple recently,” says Brooks. “The girl had grown up in India and she said that ‘Lucy’ was one of only two shows that were dubbed into Hindi and that it had been a huge part of her childhood. That’s just really cool!”

TMZ Reports on Two Iconic TV Themes Lawsuit
  
The Dick Van Show Boxed Set makes a great Christmas gift.  
 
Earle Hagen wrote the theme song for The Andy Griffith Show, Did you know it is called "The Fishin' Hole" and it has lyrics.  

TMZ has reported that a family fight has erupted over two of the most iconic TV theme songs in history.

Earle Hagen wrote the opening tunes for Make Room For Daddy, The Dick Van Dyke Show, I Spy, That Girl and The Mod Squad. He is also remembered for co-writing and whistling "The Fishin' Hole", the melody of the main theme to The Andy Griffith Show, the instrumental classic "Harlem Nocturne" used as the theme to television's Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer, and co-wrote the theme song to Tim Conway's Western comedy Rango

Hagen died in 2008, but the royalties keep streaming in. The two songs (The Dick Van Dyke Show & The Andy Griffith Show) have netted $390,402 since 2011... not bad for compositions from shows that aired fifty years ago.  

BMI (Broadcast Music Inc.) has collected the money and is required to cut a check to the rightful survivor, Hagen's widow, his second wife of three years, however his kids are in a fight for the royalties.  

BMI wants a judge to decide who should get paid.

The songs are still awesome, read the full sory, and take a listen at, TMZ.com
