Where Pop’s Nite Club When Fri. April 27, 8 p.m. Price $27-29.50 A little over a year ago, rocker James Durbin was working at a Dominoes in Santa Cruz, California, when he requested a few days off to go to American Idol auditions. His request was denied. Unfortunately (but luckily), he got fired a few […]
Network TV schedules usually seem really crowded at the end of the school year, with the full-season shows finishing up their runs while the mid-season replacements struggle to conclude their seasons by the end of May sweeps. As such, it’s time for a little clearing of the schedule to get rid of shows that shouldn’t exist anymore and make room for next season’s biggest hits. Here’s my take on 14 shows that premiered in the 2011-2012 season, excluding already-renewed shows like “New Girl,” “Smash” and “2 Broke Girls” and already-canceled shows like “Terra Nova.”
Here’s what you missed on “Glee”—wait, you haven’t missed much, because “Glee” hasn’t aired a new episode since Feb. 21, 2012. The show took a seven-week hiatus to accommodate the crowding caused in the Fox schedule by trying to air 13-episode seasons of “Alcatraz” and “Touch” in the same time slot over a four-month period.
Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but I would venture to say that while breakfast is a beloved meal, the classic breakfast cuisine is best enjoyed mid-day or even in the evening. That is why I have always found it frustrating that breakfast and brunch cafés never remain open past 3 p.m.
Since “Grey’s Anatomy” premiered on ABC in 2005, its creator, Shonda Rhimes, has been kind of a big deal for the network. “Grey’s,” currently in its eight season and renewed for a ninth, is one of ABC’s biggest success stories.
“One Tree Hill” will end tomorrow night after a nine-season tenure. It premiered on the WB on Sept. 23, 2003. Yes, 2003. As in one year before “Lost” premiered and a year in which I, now about to graduate from college, was still in middle school. That is a really, really long time ago. Think about all the better shows that have come and gone in that time.
Each weekend, Washington University features a number of different exciting events. The end of the semester is filled with activity, and this fact has never been truer than this weekend. There are even more exciting events than usual. If midterms aren’t driving you crazy, why not check one out?
Last April, AMC premiered its newest show, “The Killing,” which turned out to be a critical darling. On paper, the show sounded wonderful. It seemed like the second coming of past hit “Twin Peaks.” Both shows were set in the dreary Pacific Northwest, and they both focused on the murder of a popular high school girl who actually had quite a few secrets.
March Madness has been taking over our TVs for the past few weekends, but the Mosaic Whispers, Washington University’s oldest co-ed a cappella group, have been tied up with their own tournament. They are competing to sing with musician Andy Grammer and bring him to campus.
When most people think of a play, they also think of a theater with a stage. In its latest production, Thyrsus, Washington University’s oldest student theater group, does not accept this traditional view. This weekend, Thyrsus will put on an original play, “Somebody Important,” at the Eliot Hall Loading Dock on Snow Way.
