Question: True Detective is by far my new favorite show! The acting, storyline, intensity (especially last week's episode on Feb. 9) is incredible!
I've heard that this is just a miniseries. However, with the good ratings and reviews as it is getting, any word on a possible renewal of a second season? - Mike
Matt Roush: Though it hasn't been officially renewed yet, that seems to be just a formality at this point, especially since HBO has signed the show's creator Nic Pizzolatto to a two-year deal. Which means more True Detective, although whatever happens, it will be a very different True Detective in seasons to come. Because this is one of those franchises that occupies the territory somewhere between miniseries and anthology, not unlike American Horror Story but potentially with less of a repertory ensemble feel. If/when True Detective returns, it will be with new stars, new characters, a new locale and new focus, so don't get too attached to Rust Cohle and Marty Hart, although I understand why you would be.

The Big Bang Theory
Question: I read that CBS won the bidding for an exclusive Thursday night NFL game package starting next season. I'm wondering what that means for The Big Bang Theory. It would seem to be an odd choice to disrupt the most popular show on TV from its prime-time slot, even though there's no denying football's ratings, either. How do you think CBS will handle this? Will Big Bang move to a new night, or maybe use it as a lead-in to the football? Or will they maybe hold the show back to start its season run after the eight weeks of football are over and thereby cut down on the number of reruns the show airs. Any ideas? — Chris

Psych is doing something that no TV show has dared before — a remake!
Sure, lots of shows are remakes of past hits (see: Hawaii Five-0, 90210), but Psych is the first series to remake one of its own Season 1 episodes.
In "Remake A.K.A. Cloudy... With A Chance Of Improvement" (Wednesday, 9/8c, USA), Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dulé Hill) go back seven years to 2006 to retell the story of...

The original Law & Order seems like such a distant, and classy, memory these days. Dick Wolf's mini-empire within NBC now runs on a higher octane of lurid overkill. While Chicago Fire is a harmless enough, though largely forgettable, soap about telegenic first responders, its no-brainer (and brainless) spinoff, Chicago PD, is the most arrogantly conceived display of bare-knuckled hooey since the mercifully short-lived Ironside reboot, which polluted the same Wednesday 10/9c time period last fall.
Audiences changed the way they consumed television — as well as what they watched — last year, making binge-watching a phenomenon and breathing new life into the TV movie and miniseries genres. What's in store for this year? Here are a few hot topics.
