According to a June HBO press release (on futoncritic.com) here is the info:
CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM - A fifth season of 10 episodes is set to head before the cameras in January for a premiere later in 2005.

Well as long as we're talking HBO, I've been unable to find out when Sopranos and Deadwood return, anyone know?

I remember reading somewhere that The Sopranos will not be back until 2006 and Deadwood will show up after The Wire is done with this seasons episodes.

The most recent word from HBO (and it is a couple of months old now) is very vague.
Deadwood is (now) due back in March 2005.
The Sopranos begins shooting its final ten episodes in "early 2005" with no word on when it be actually air. Given the track record of David Chase, it could air in 2008 (just kidding).

Final season, *sigh*. I know most people are tired of it but I'll be sad to see it go. Thank goodness Deadwood just starting it's run. Thanks for the updates guys.

And by then Anthony Sr will be retired and AJ will be fighting for control with Meadow, it has some great possibilities.

I have pulled Method & Red from the Fox lineup based on this story from the NY Post:
"September 16, 2004 -- 'METHOD & Red," a summer comedy that had been expected to be back this fall appears to be over.

"The show is done. It's on the long hiatus," rapper Method Man, one of the show's stars, told The Post yesterday.

Fox has picked up only three episodes of the six that were filmed over the summer. Initially it was believed that the network wanted an additional nine for this fall. ..."

yep, only watch csi and jag on CBS... only watch jag now due to force of habit and the DVR, LOL i usually watch one or two shows on each network... 24 and arrested development on fox, the practice and line of fire on abc (wow, two shows that are gone, lol) 3rd watch on nbc even though MI and Hawaii might keep me interested if they can make some improvements.... So i have no brand loyality, shoot me, LOL!

Line of Fire is history? Bummer, I thought that was pretty decent TV. The Practice has morphed into Boston Legal with James Spader, IMO, one of the very best characters on TV that I've watched in awhile.

Hopefully the Jan starts will eliminate all the pre-emptions and no-shows that both these shows have had in common last year. These shows more than most any others need that continuity because of their serial nature.

What is up with Thursday having so many good shows: CSI, Without a Trace, Joey, Apprentice, Benefactor, ......others?
post #48 of 25503
benefactor on thursdays was a one-time airing.

also, karen sisco was butchered, but its unaired episodes were shown on USA Network.
post #49 of 25503
Meanwhile, a similar scenario is said to be underway for FOX's "Athens," which comes from "The O.C." creator Josh Schwartz. At its upfront presentation, FOX outlined a plan which would have "Athens" on its January 2005 schedule where it would air on Monday nights alongside the new season of "24." Now it seems "Athens" won't make it to the air until at least the spring, as Schwartz reportedly doesn't want to rush the series to the detriment of either "The O.C." or "Athens." FOX or producer Warner Bros. Television have yet to confirm any sort of delay however it's clearly not a surprise considering the multitude of changes already done to its schedule since its original upfront presentation in May.

simple:

every network is trying to derail CSI..as long as CSI is on the air, CBS will be able to promote their other shows and suck in more viewers

look at Without a Trace..it is an awesome show but the lead in from CSI certainly doesn't hurt..WAT is going to overtake ER really really soon

I bet Without A Trace catches up to ER by mid-season, Rakesh.S (if not before).
f44: Teens? Who knows! It's gone. Thanks for catching it.

I would say to date that was my favorite title sequence of any HD show.

Veronica Mars premieres Wednesday, Sept 22. It then moves to Tuesdays the following week when Kevin Hill premieres.

I've been told both will be in HD.
post #57 of 25503
Why is The Benefactor listed as HD? AFAIK, no one has seen this show in HD.
post #58 of 25503

Tall1:
Because The Benefactor was announced by ABC as being in HD, shot in HD, edited in HD, and supposed to be broadcast in HD.
If it is (again) in SD this week ( or if we get confirmation it is supposed to be only SD from now on), I'll change it.

I can find no confirmation that either Veronica Mars or Kevin Hill will be in HD.
If I get confirmation, I'll happily change the grid to reflect it.
