    I’m pretty pumped about @midnight’s renewal. As university students, me and my friends are always still up at that time, and we love sitting around together and watching this show. It’s perfect for our generation.

  2. “Robert Patrick” but, but, but… Texas blood money.

  3. SonOfCoul says:

    Awesome for Chris Hardwick. Really loving @midnight. Talkind dead, tooHe’s one of those hosts you either love him or hate him.

    • Tookie Clothespin says:

      If this ain’t the truth, I don’t know what is. This guy has been grating on my nerves ever since Singled Out but, somebody must like the guy because he keeps getting work.

  4. I would MUCH rather the series followed up from the third movie, Hangman’s Daughter, than be a remake.

  5. Tori says:

    I like the trailer for Looking, I will definitely check out the new series from HBO.

  6. Ann says:

    emm if it´s called Looking how come it´s untitled..?

  7. Jared says:

    Very excited about LOOKING. I think it could be a good fit for the GIRLS crowd. Bummer about the eight episodes though.

  8. collectcall says:

    Looking looks pretty gay.

  9. Newport says:

    It would have been nice if this site gave Looking their own exclusive article instead of having one sentence under an article for the Simpsons. This website is anti-gay and anti-HBO.

    • Thea says:

      LMAO FOREVER @ this site being “anti-gay.” Either I’m feeding the world’s most subtle troll, or this is clearly your first foray into the TVLine realm. Welcome and feel free to stay awhile to see how wrong you really truly are. =)

    I was looking forward to Looking because I love me some Jonathan Groff but I just spotted Russell Tovey in the trailer – OMFG – I’m now even more excited!
