This Week on TV – 5/20/07-5/26/07

Welcome to a new week for This Week on TV! Last week was quite a week, wasn’t it? CBS really gave me the highs, the renewal of How I Met Your Mother, and lows, the sudden and shocking cancellation of Jericho. Everything else was about as expected.

  1. Alex says:

    I totally forgot that Upfronts were this week…Veronica Mars got cancelled????? I’m done with TV.

  2. Jenny says:

    Yup. πŸ™ Check out the TV News section for all the pickups & fall schedules.

  3. szucsitg says:

    alex, i feel like the same way… but you don’t know how things works here, in hungary… the tv is like sh*t, almost always. and you never got any idea about the quality of translation of great series… one of our network just started to air vm, but they killed it with the translation. and kirsten got a voice like a spoiled beeyotch. imagine that.

  4. szucsitg says:

    sorry for the double post: but if you want to, i can search a part of the “hungarian” vm in youtube…

  5. Jenny says:

    szucsitg, that would be cool to see a short clip of the VM in hungarian! Let me know if you find one! hehe

  6. szucsitg says:
    this is one of the most powerful example how-not-to-translate… the hungarian version of pirates at the end of the clip is absolutely meaningless.

    and 3promos of it:

  7. Jenny says:

    Hehehehehehe Those are great. Totally strange voices for those characters! πŸ˜€

  8. lauren says:

    is there no new House episode on this week?

  9. Jenny says:

    Nope, they are airing the series premiere of On the Lot in its place. The season finale of House will be next week at its regular night & time.

    I’m wondering if FOX is tricking everyone who doesn’t read a tv schedule somewhere and trying to get all the regular House viewers to watch On the Lot… heh

  10. szucsitg says:

    but do you like the voices?:) and btw the voice of veronica is the voice of claire from heroes… nc…

  11. Jenny says:

    lol I dunno if I liked or disliked them. Just sounded strange for the characters I know and love! lol

    Really?? I didn’t know she spoke Hungarian!

  12. szucsitg says:

    ummmm, i think it’s the worst choice ever.

    and i mean, the girl who gave her voice to veronica mars in hungarian, she also gave it to claire in heroes:)

  13. Jenny says:

    Oooooh! LOL I see what you mean. πŸ˜‰ Thanks. lol

  14. szucsitg says:

    yeap, its kinda lol:D

    one more question, it’s a little bit off topic, but it’ll be everywhere off topic, so: why does the comment feed delay so much?

  15. Jenny says:

    LOL I’m not sure! I was actually planning on looking into that, because it seems like ALL the RSS feeds are delayed. Will let you know if I figure it out. πŸ™‚

  16. szucsitg says:

    ty, jenny. maybe i can ask my favorite tv show blog’s admin. they use wp too.

  17. szucsitg says:

    sorry for the double, but i have an idea, btw i never used wp… so, i saw that the comment feed mostly updated after a new post appear in the main rss feed, and if i’m not wrong, wp has got an option that you can generate a static post, otherwise the server do it at every time when a querry is sent by the browser. so maybe that static thing affects the rss feeds too.
