TV News – 8/7/10

So sorry that I was missing in action for the news yesterday, but I was feeling a little under the weather. I’m here today and I’m going to bring you a bit of news, before I go hit the hay to get some rest for my trip tomorrow. I’ll be visiting the sets of Psych and Facing Kate this week. Stay tuned for updates and information from the sets, it’s going to be educational and entertaining. I promise. 😉 Now for some news.

There’s a few interesting facts from the press tour involving HBO, let’s talk about a few.
-Ricky Gervais will be doing a second comedy special, called Ricky Gervais: Out of England 2, and air in December.
Boardwalk Empire will premiere on September 9th.
-Unfortunately, The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency won’t be returning. At least not as a series, there is a possibility of a couple movies based on the novels.
-There’s going to be a special about Bruce Springsteen, called The Promise: The Making of ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town’

For more head over here.

More after the jump.

Frances Conroy (Happy Town) will be coming back to How I Met Your Mother, to play Barney’s mother again. She’ll be in at least the second episode of the season and we’ll find out that she’s been lying about his dad being Bob Barker. Source

That’s all for now, I’ll be popping in and out for news and updates when I can until I get back on Tuesday night. In the meantime be sure to follow us on twitter @TVIsMyPacifier and @BaffledAddict (My personal one).

    With the much-anticipated release of a commemorative box set for Darkness on the Edge of Town slated for this Christmas, Bruce Springsteen’s classic record is getting renewed attention in the music world. Details on the project are scarce; however, in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Steven Van Zandt mentioned that about 10 unreleased songs will be included in the box set. Fans are surely hungry for any and all material they can get from the 1978 recording sessions and subsequent tour.

    For our own preview of what’s to come, we contacted Dick Wingate, who was intimately involved in the launch and marketing of the album and tour. He offers an insider’s view of what the Darkness era meant to Bruce and the band, while painting an often-humorous behind-the-scenes account of some of the tour’s highlights…check out the book The Light in Darkness, which one fan said, “… would also make a great companion piece to the much anticipated commemorative Darkness box set…”
