Saying that Alibi columnist Derek Caterwaul sees a lot of live music would be a major understatement. If he isn’t DJing on KUNM or sorting through his massive archive of obscure A/V and ephemera, it’s a pretty safe bet he’s at a show. In this month’s installment of MAXIMUMCATERWAUL, he shares a quick and dirty overview of 10 shows he caught in March. ... right here in our quirky, beloved burg. Peep related A/V below.
At this point it’s hard to tell which new fall shows will be good and which will be awful. But what’s to stop us from making snap judgments based entirely on cast, concept and the teaser trailers available on YouTube?
Late in May, the broadcast networks announced their fall lineups. Some shows look good, others look meh. But it’s always interesting to note the series that could have been—the ones that never even got past the pilot stage. Here’s a look at the 2012-2013 TV pilots that never got off the ground.
As we speak, television networks are in the middle of “up front season.” That means the broadcast networks (and a few of their cable brethren) are showing off potential new shows to advertisers.
