The TV Blog Coalition - March Mix Ups

Because of basketball March Madness and President Obama, American Idol and Survivor: Tocantins are shifted this week which sort of throws the TV schedule around again. How annoying. Idol will be on Wednesday and Thursday (thus pushing Bones off the schedule) and Survivor will also be on Wednesday (while basketball takes over CBS Thursday and Friday). It will also be the first week Josh Schwartz's two shows Gossip Girl and Chuck will directly compete against each other on Monday at 8pm since they've somehow avoided it until now (with repeats or hiatuses). It's also against the season finale of The Secret Life of the American Teenager where I assume Amy will finally have the baby! At least The Big Bang Theory isn't airing (though How I Met Your Mother will air a new episode at 8pm but then a repeat in its normal timeslot.

You know? The networks sure don't make it easy to want to follow all their shows.

Oh well, here's what the other TV bloggers are talking about:

Some of the show descriptions in this quiz are real pilots, some I've made up. Take the quiz and see if you can spot the fake pilots! (BuzzSugar)

GMMR asked if you were a network exec and could program TV for only one hour out of each day, what would the TV schedule look like? (Give Me My Remote)

You know a show is going to be good when it manages to equally upset the liberal communists (who think the show pushes a Christian agenda) and the religious nutjobs (who think the show pushes a gay agenda). Scooter endorses Kings if only because they cast Mr. Boston in the lead role. (Scooter McGavin's 9th Green)

Vance is enjoying the shows no one is watching. Like newbies Kings and Better Off Ted or old faves Ugly Betty and Lost amongst many others. (Tapeworthy)

This week, Jace talked to Joss Whedon about his "Man on the Street" episode of FOX's Dollhouse, why Dollhouse seems to lack the funny, and whether he would be leaving television for good. (Televisionary)

Sara celebrated the fact that Chuck was back to wearing ascots on the latest episode of Gossip Girl. (TiFaux)

Jennifer contemplated why Ugly Betty Suarez is such a man magnet. (Tube Talk)

Steve got his hands on a copy of next week's Gossip Girl and recapped it for your spoilerly pleasure (TVFanatic)

Ben celebrated the enws that BBC3 had bought the UK rights to the new murder mystery Harper's Island and took a look at it spin-off web series Harper's Globe. (TV Spy)
