Stephen King has always been prolific, and we’re not surprised to learn he’s got two new books coming out this year. Frankly, we’re shocked he’s not putting out a new book every week, but anyways…
With so many great shows out there, there has really been a great time for genre television. Now that it’s a new year, we’ve got all new seasons of Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and Under the Dome just around the corner, but at least two of those shows will relaunch further away from each other so not to create a ratings war.
The last several years have been a remarkable time for genre TV with shows like Revolution, SHIELD, and Under the Dome. Revolution especially came on strong, but later in the year it faltered after going on a brief hiatus. So now that the show is back, will its audience come back to it as well?
Although Steven Spielberg is now officially a senior citizen, he still loves staying on top of what’s new and hot. And now he’s going to have his new TV series, Extant, streaming on Amazon Prime right after it will air on CBS.
With Sleepy Hollow, Revolution, and Under the Dome, horror and sci-fi genre TV is really hot right now, and it’s great to see genre shows going strong on the small screen. Dome, the TV adaptation of the Stephen King novel, has been growing strong with the viewers and critics, and by the time you read this, there will be some big twists at the end of season one.
Genre TV has never been hotter. Not only is Game of Thrones a cultural phenomenon, but The Walking Dead is going like gangbusters, and Under the Dome, based on the Stephen King novel, is now officially a ratings hit. Like Game of Thrones, Under the Dome is also a ratings hit for viewers watching the CBS show later on DVR.
Even though we cover a lot of technology here on TG, I for one would like to state for the record that I hate cell-phones. It also infuriates me that with so many cell phones, Blackberrys, and iPhones out there, you still can’t get your messages returned or get anyone to pick up the phone to save your life.
This is a great time for genre TV. Not only is Game of Thrones back for its third season, The Walking Dead also had a triumphant return, not to mention Bates Motel and Hannibal have also been getting good reviews as well.
We’ve already been seeing commercials for the upcoming Stephen King series Under the Dome, which will be airing on CBS, and this particular King adaptation has been coming together remarkably fast.
Development moves forward on the television adaptation of the Stephen King novel.
