There's been no full series of Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe this year due to Brooker's commitments to Black Mirror (there was a "Moments of Wonder" special earlier in the year though), but now he's working on putting together a 2016 Wipe special, and he's finding it difficult to inject it with any humour

And that's why this is so shocking. It's basically an ad for the franchise, so goodness only knows why they'd move it to a channel no one gets. I figured CN would be airing Pokemon until the end of time...

I had a feeling that one wasn't going to last....the premise sounds like it would've been intriguing a decade ago, at least, but now, it's just....meh.

BBC One has cancelled National Lottery Live: the draws will now only be streamed online. No word on the game shows that the National Lottery would sometimes be embedded into.

Jennifer Saunders confirms that, following the movie, she is done with Absolutely Fabulous (If memory serves me correct, 2016 marks 20 years since the intended series finale, "The Last Shout")

Any new network show that debuts this time of year on Thursday nights has to contend with football here in the US. Pure Genius should have been during the Spring and summer when football is during its offseason.

With no further need for it now that the content is online, the BBC have put the spectrum capacity used to transmit BBC THREE up for sale

Football ratings have been declining. Though you're right no drama should debut against Football they're doomed to fail if that is the case.

Doesn't surprise me, considering it hasn't been on the air in almost a year.

My wife and I like pure genius. But I won't get gloomy yet. 13 EPs is all a season needs.

I enjoy it too, but I'll be fine if CBS decides to pull the plug on it. Well, just as long as the final episode of the first season doesn't end on a cliffhanger.

Considering the entire plot of the series seems to revolve around the main characters eventual illness I highly doubt we will have an answer to that. However as much as I like Pure Genius I will not miss it if they don't pick it up for anther 13 episodes this time in the spring.

Just as long as they don't try anything else.
