If it was good enough for the Drew Carey Show, it is good enough for me.
Except now Aisha Tyler is the MC, so it would probably be Archer.

Whose Battle of the Line is it Anyway? Sounds like something the warrior caste said when asked to surrender.

Re: NEW Babylon 5 Series

Folks, I think the reboot is dead in the water now. A real shame.


Press release:



After spending several years setting the pace of ďThe FlashĒ and other hard-racing TV superheroes on the CW network, Mark Pedowitz has reached the end of his current adventure.

The longtime TV executive, who has run the one-time joint venture between CBS and Time Warner since 2011, is leaving the network as Nexstar Media Group prepares to acquire the outlet, which has its roots in two antecedent networks, UPN and The WB, that both catered to younger viewers. Nexstar is expected to close the deal at some point in the third quarter of 2022, but has already begun to run the networkís operations.

Dennis Miller, a longtime TV executive who eventually moved into the world of venture capital, will take the reins as president of CW. Miller has served on Nexstarís board of directors for the past few years.

And JMS posted:

We ain't dead yet.

There are still a lot of discussions going on behind the scenes and no decision has yet been made about #B5onCWin23. As we await that decision, fans eager to see a new Babylon 5 series should continue to voice their support to
@NXSTMediaGroup
and
@WarnerBrosTV
We trended at #1 in the US for three hours last time and #2 in the UK after the Queen's funeral. Let's see what we can do! Can't hurt, right?

Re: NEW Babylon 5 Series

This isnít really new information about a possible B5 project, but I was watching a You Tube video about the possible B5 reboot and mostly heard what had already been posted here. But I think Iíd missed a detail or two that I donít recall hearing before. And about 7 minutes in an interesting possible option was mentioned:

A show could theoretically be made in long-form for HBO Max with the intention of an edited down version would be shown on the CW channel. The HBO Max version being a kind of ďDirectorís CutĒ version, and could be longer with all of the scenes involving mature content being edited out for the CW version.

Thatís an option that would never have occurred to me. If anyone is interested, Iím going to try to post the link below. I donít know if Iím supposed to use any particular code but here is the link:

Personally I think that's just somebody spitballing, making the assumption that since WB have stakes in both HBO and The CW they can mix and match the show on the different networks. But I don't think that's the case, based on what JMS has said. If the show goes ahead it will be for The CW only. The guy in the video who doesn't give his sources (and doesn't strike me as someone who would have credible intricate knowledge of the dealings of US TV networks) says projects have already been shared between The CW and HBO Max, but he doesn't go on to name any. Can anyone?

I have to say, if I had a choice I would much prefer new B5 to be made by HBO!

Oh, definitely, the HBO treatment would be amazing. But it is probably not in the cards.

Re: NEW Babylon 5 Series

I think we'll be lucky to see any treatment after Pedowitz exit at the CW. It's a shame, but I think the reboot is VERY dead (personal opinion based on past experience of frequent disappointments around B5 ). The social media campaign should have been a strong sign to us all that things were getting desperate.


Maybe it's for the best.
