TV News – 4/16/10

Friday! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m ready for the weekend. It’s been a LOOOONG week for my family, and last weekend was a bust for the same reason, so hopefully this weekend will be better. What are your plans? Whatever they are, I hope you have a great one! Now onto the news!

Burn Notice cast

Sometimes it’s hard to know what news to put first. Today, it was easy. My favorite show (tied with Alias in my list of forever shows), Burn Notice, has been picked up for seasons 5 & 6 before season 4 even airs. Woohoo! If you haven’t seen this show on USA, you’re missing out. Seriously. For more info on the show and the renewal, check out Zap2It

More news after the jump!
