Question: I have watched All My Children and One Life to Live for 40 years. I watch GMA and stay with ABC just waiting for them to come on to see what has happened. They are an escape from reality with spice, and ABC wants to give us more reality? There are mannnnny other stations for that. If ABC cancels my soaps, I will not watch them ever again any time of the day or night. AMC and OLTL are icons. Regis retires in November and Kelly understands. AMC and OLTL are a part of our lives and our friends. This is a wrong choice that ABC needs to reconsider or I'll be watching The Early Show, Matlock, In the Heat of the Night, Gunsmoke and Walker Texas Ranger, not reality. Oprah's leaving. Put the new shows there, or move the soaps around, just do not cancel them. 40 years of loyalty cuts deep and never heals. Why did they move AMC to LA and hire the veteran head writer just to cancel? Someone's thinking is screwed up. — Mary Alice

Not since the fall TV onslaught has there been a weekend this cluttered with high-profile new premieres, including network and cable (though mostly cable), running the gamut from lavish costume drama to spy spoof to haunting mystery. And there's a really lousy, old-school Kennedy miniseries in the mix you might have heard about. Something for everyone, you might say...
Mireille Enos, The Killing
It will take 13 episodes before viewers learn who killed young Rosie Larsen in AMC's new, slow-burning murder mystery The Killing. Before getting answers, audiences will have to wade through the dark investigation, its well of complicated suspects and the tragic aftermath for Rosie's family. For executive producer Veena Sud, writing this show has been the perfect antidote to years at the helm of a network cop drama.
AMC sets two-hour premiere for The Killing
Sud previously ran CBS' unsolved-crimes procedural Cold Case, where she became expert at crafting stories that wrapped in a single episode. But she wanted her next project to be darker and longer, and soon after she left the show in 2008, her agent directed her to the popular Danish series Forbrydelsen ("The Crime," in English), a harrowing narrative about the search for a murdered teenager's killer in Copenhagen. The rights to remake the series were available, and AMC, already home to the luxuriously slow, Emmy-winning character drama Mad Men, was interested.
"Cold Case was a wonderful place to learn how to work and problem-solve and get things done, but it was also such a grueling, grueling process," Sud says...
AMC will unveil its newest series, The Killing, with a two-hour premiere on Sunday, April 3, the network announced Thursday.
Based on the Danish TV series Forbrydelsen, the show focuses on the murder of a young Seattle girl, Rosie Larsen, and the subsequent police investigation. Production on the 13-episode first season started in December in Vancouver.

Every week, senior editors Matt Webb Mitovich, Mickey O'Connor and Tim Molloy satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to email@example.com.
Chuck deserves a whole season, not just 13 episodes. Any chance of more? — Darryl
MATT: Actually, yes. NBC entertainment president Ben Silverman says that while the current plan is to deliver 13 midseason episodes, depending on the ratings, "we may extend it out and continue it through the summer," where he thinks it could pair nicely with Friday Night Lights. "We're looking to ... keep [Chuck] incredibly viral and buzz-worthy until it returns, and then hopefully have it on our air for many years to come." That'd be Awesome. And even more so? I chatted up Scott Bakula at TNT's upfronts luncheon, and he's game for more Chuck, if need be.
Any scoop on Gossip Girl's Season 3? — F.R.
MICKEY: Speaking with TVGuide.com at the CW upfronts, Leighton Meester seemed to confirm that Georgina's plan to ...

Billy Campbell (The 4400, Once and Again) has landed the lead in Sci Fi Channel's Revolution. The two-hour pilot is set at a 22nd-century Earth outpost, and chronicles civil unrest among the colonists. Campbell will play Tom Hart, a soldier-turned-farmer who just may turn soldier again as he emerges as a leader of the rebels. Also among the cast, says the Reporter, are Steve Sandvoss (as Campell's son) and Rowena King (as the governor of the colony).
Lets take stock of where we stand going into the season (series?) finale: Tom, Meghan and Diana are no longer pretending that Tom is really Tom, and in order to save him, Diana may have killed him. Kyle distrusts Cassie more than ever now that pretty much everyone shes told him to trust has betrayed him. Shawn and Dannys mother could be dying, and Collier is possibly Marked. Think they could have packed any more in?The Baldwin/Farrell clan really cant catch any breaks, can they? On the upside, Shawn, Kyle and Danny are now all Promicin-positive with few ill effects. On the downside, it looks like Mrs. Farrell may be dying from the shot and Tom is lying in the back room of a home-goods store with two bullets in him courtesy of Diana. Isabelle needs to extract herself from that extended family posthaste.On the whole, the episode really was one of those good-news/bad-news kinds of nights. We got Curtis Peck back (good), then Tom killed him (bad). We can kill off...
