CBS Releases Trailers For 2012-2013 New Shows



Have you been waiting with anticipation for CBS to release the official trailers for its new 2012-2013 shows? The Tiffany network has finally premiered the trailers for Elementary, Partners, Vegas and Made in Jersey.

Elementary stars Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Homes and Lucy Liu as Watson in a modern take on the classic literary character. It is probably the new CBS show I am looking forward to most. Will Elementary be as good as Sherlock on PBS? We'll find out this fall.

Partners is a comedy about two childhood friends, Charlie (David Krumholtz) and Louis (Michael Urie), whose friendship as adults creates a humorous dynamic for their significant others. One Life to Live grad and former Superman Brandon Ruth stars as Louis’ boyfriend Wyatt.  Former One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush portrays Charlie’s fiancé Ali.

Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis face off in the explosive drama Vegas.  Quaid portrays Ralph Lamb, a rancher-turned sheriff of Las Vegas, who go toe-to-toe with mob elements trying to mold Vegas in the 1960s .

Finally, there is Made in Jersey, which reminds me a lot of USA’s Fairly Legal. Janet Montgomery stars as Martina, a young Jersey lawyer who lands a job in a big law firm and quickly makes her mark.

Lucas and Peyton Leave Tree Hill



Michael Ausiello is reporting the exclusive news at EW.com. Lucas Scott (Chad Michael Murray) and Peyton Sawyer (Hilarie Burton) are leaving Tree Hill behind. One Tree Hill was picked up for a seventh season without the show's two leads signed on. At that time, the rumor mill was buzzing that Murray was definitely not returning.
Sources confirm to me exclusively that Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton, whose characters tied the knot in last night's penultimate episode, will not be returning for the show's seventh season next fall. The CW is expected to formally announce their departures next Thursday at its "upfront" presentation.

Murray and Burton have been engaged in rather high profile contract negotiations for the past several months. Ultimately, a deal couldn't be worked out and both actors will make their final appearances in next Monday's season finale.

To fill the void next season, a Tree Hill insider tells me that two new characters will be introduced. Additionally, Austin Nichols (Julian) is being promoted to a series regular.
 

One Tree Hill Mourns



One Tree Hill airs it's third episode of the season tonight and is mourning the death of Quentin.  I watched much of the first four seasons but lost interest last season. However, like most series I phase out, I tune back in for the season premiere and finale. The season six premiere had me hooked and now I'm playing catch up on a few things.

What are you thinking of One Tree Hill's sixth season so far?
