    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    Royal Pains is technically flawless, but it has no balls.

    SWEEP THE LEG! SWEEP THE ####ING LEG!

    (Nope.)

    The show creates incredibly tense situations, which are resolved by hugs and bunnies.

    "Sigh"

    I watched season 2 of Alpha House last weekend, and there was (the new secret emergency sister) Emma from Royal Pains unrecognisably involved in some of the most repressed Mormon sex scenes imaginable called "soaking".

    Its also possible that song revenue on iTunes, etc, might help keep the show profitable.

    I'm a fan of his as well, but I feel like the premise is wasted on the 'murder of the week' format.

    I'm not kidding about massive tax breaks. Before it got renewed in May there was news ABC threatened to move the show's filming to LA. Nashville TN is pretty much paying for the show. SO the music and fact it's owned by ABC we will probably get a few more seasons out of the show, many another 22 episode season and a final 13 episode season 5.

    Some speculation about the ABC produced show Revenge, on whether it might see a 13-episode final season 5, even with crappy low ratings for the new first-run season 4 episodes broadcast so far.

    This might very well apply also to Nashville in the future.

    This sounds very much like a bargaining chip, where the city of Nashville had everything to lose.

    I'm sure everybody on both sides (Disney/ABC and the city of Nashville) knew what was at stake here: two more seasons of the show to get that magic number of 88 episodes for off-network syndication. Either the city of Nashville got that additional revenue, or LA did.

    I wouldn't be surprised if something similar happens behind the scenes of other shows that were shot away from places like Los Angeles, New York City, Vancouver, etc ... such as recent shows like Hawaii Five-0, Dallas, etc ...

    I don't think they would have actually moved the show, I think the would have just canceled it. They knew Nashville was getting some great advertising by the show and would pay more to keep the show on the air and around or just pack up shop. But now I don't see any chance of it ending soon, this season will not be the last just because it's so close to having enough episodes.

    Surprised about Forever, wonder if they have no faith in their midseason shows. I wonder if ABC might try a timeslot change to bring some of that DVR audience back into watching it live.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was something like this.

    A few weeks ago, TNT might have taken a huge "write down" on their Hawaii Five-0 and The Mentalist off-network syndication deals.

    Most likely season 7 of The Mentalist will be the end.

    Also it appears The Mentalist reruns have already been pulled from TNT. Reruns still show up once a week on MyTV. (In terms of ota + basic cable channels).

    Hawaii Five-0 is still in reruns on TNT, albeit mostly during overnight graveyard hours. Not exactly a sign of confidence on the part of TNT.

    Perhaps it wouldn't be too surprising if a large portion of Turner/TNT's recent $400+ million writedown was from pulling The Mentalist reruns, and the less than stellar graveyard hours for Hawaii Five-0 reruns.

    I seriously wish I could go to networks and tell them whether shows were going to be a hit simply based off of blurbs. I think I would have an 80% track record over the last decade.

    Selfie was a cute show but I'm not that saddened by its passing. I will miss getting to see Karen Gillan every week but that accent was atrocious :lol:
