The teasers had been promising a Revolution regular would bite the dust all week, and the writers didn't pull any punches in the most recent episode. Now that our hearts have been completely broken, producer Eric Kripke explains why a fan-favorite character had to die. Spoilers ahead for the most recent episode!
After a big premiere week filled with a lot of big shows, we've got a full schedule to contend with. Most of the returning series took a slight hit this week, but Person of Interest stayed strong. Meanwhile Bedlam returned to the U.S. with very unimpressive numbers, and The Big Bang Theory stayed, well ... big.
Despite selling a pretty high sci-fi concept, the masses have fallen in love with J.J. Abrams' latest brainchild Revolution, which has carried NBC to some record viewership the past few weeks. To that end, there's some good news to share.
You typically have a few tweaks between a pilot episode and actual series order when it comes to a TV show, as the pilot establishes a premise while subsequent episodes build on it. This season's early hit Revolution is the perfect example—and producer Eric Kripke has finally explained why one big change was made to recast a big reveal for episode two.
The fall shows have arrived! Well, not all of them, but the flood has definitely begun. This week NBC's much-anticipated new drama Revolution debuted to big numbers, while over on Syfy Haven had a big first night to kick off its third season. Meanwhile we say goodbye to Wilfred, and Doctor Who gets a boost.
Eric Kripke is taking notes from The CW's Supernatural. He's snagged not one, not two, but three alums from the show to guest star on Revolution. One of them being a genre favorite who's appeared on Lost, SyFy's Being Human and most recently, Grimm.
While it seems like a thin week, we do have a couple of significant TV offerings, with the premiere of the new NBC series, Revolution, and the return of season three of Haven. We'll also get a look at the new Syfy set designing competition series, Hot Set.
Eric Kripke admits he's a little obsessed. It's not your normal obsession and it doesn't mean he needs to join a 12-step program. Well, at least not yet. But it is something that drove him when he created and ran the CW's Supernatural, and it's an fixation that's only increased with his latest creation, NBC's Revolution, a series that he's developed with Lost's J.J. Abrams and Iron Man's Jon Favreau.
Fall TV is finally upon us as we get to explore new frontiers, reboots and reality programming, while saying goodbye to some old friends. In part one of our three-part 2012 Fall TV Preview, we'll take a look at canceled and new shows.
