The Michael J. Fox Show
It's been 13 years since Michael J. Fox last starred on a TV series, but the actor said it didn't take much to convince him to return to the small screen full-time on The Michael J. Fox Show.
"I just thought: Why can't I? There's no reason not to do it," Fox told reporters Saturday at NBC's Television Critics Association fall TV previews.
Fox famously left Spin City in 2000 shortly after revealing to the public that he...
NBC didn't improve its overall ratings this past season, but network chairman Bob Greenblatt remains positive.
"How good is it to celebrate being flat? At this point in our business, flat is the new up," he said Saturday at the Television Critics Association fall previews. Greenblatt pointed out that the other Big 4 networks (ABC, CBS and FOX were all down ) and dubbed the 2012 season as the "Year of Improvement," citing that it was the network's most competitive season in the past nine years.

Question: I'm shocked and delighted by Fox's announcement about bringing back 24, but honestly, I think this points to the future of television. It's the same thing with The Following: Give us shorter seasons, TV Gods! Seriously, 22-episode seasons just don't work for so many shows, especially the serialized ones. How much filler was there in any given 24-episode season of real-time 24? A ton, inevitably. And every other heavily serialized show you can point to is eventually going to fall back on filler episodes, or extended (and frustrating) wheel-spinning, etc. It's just inevitable, and the best serialized shows are the ones that best manage this reality: for instance, The Vampire Diaries splits its season into three or four tightly focused mini-arcs that pack as much into each mini-arc as most shows cover in a whole season.
