TCAs: Defiance gets premiere date; NBC not done with the Munsters; Revolution gets analyzed and adjusted
The Television Critics Association’s winter press tour is going on, and NBCUniversal made a bunch of presentations today. Some news from the relevant presentations from yesterday and today…
Syfy’s Defiance will premiere on Monday, April 15th, at 9/8c with a two-hour premiere, and run for a total of 12 episodes (the premiere being two hours long presumably can be split to account for 13 hours/episodes.)
NBC may not be done with The Munsters – despite the network having officially stuck a stake in their Mockingbird Lane reboot, Bob Greenblatt, the head of NBC, said, “I won’t say we won’t do another version of The Munsters again.” Apparently despite the pilot (retooled as a Halloween special) doing OK ratings-wise, the network just wasn’t impressed with the prospect of the show as a series, and Greenblatt admits that the mistake was likely trying to make it more of a dramedy than sitcom. “It’s hard to calibrate how much weirdness vs. supernatural vs. family story. I just think we didn’t get the mix right.”
And as for NBC’s Revolution, which did well before heading in to a four-month-long hiatus, which have critics thinking the show could lose its audience. But producers J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke aren’t afraid, and actually welcomed the break – which isn’t as unusual for shows on its cable sibling, Syfy, but it quite unusual for broadcast network fare.
The two cited Lost as precedence for having such a break, but Lost didn’t endure a “mega-break” until between Seasons 3 and 4 – and then it was between “seasons” (Lost switched to a shorter Winter-through-Spring run from Season 4 on.)
Anyways, they are using the break to “really analyze it, and make adjustments,” according to Kripke.
Tonight is the fall finale for NBC’s Revolution – and if you’ve missed anything, get caught up right here with this 3 minute recap of the the series so far with executive producers Eric Kripke and J.J Abrams – and they promise that tonight’s big episode will change everything you thought you knew about the show!

Here is a quick preview for tonight’s episode of Revolution – and check out @NBCRevolution on Twitter as they will be live-tweeting during the East Coast showing of the episode! It airs at 10/9c on NBC after The Voice:
NBC is starting it’s back-end pick ups of freshman series, and Revolution made the cut, getting a full-season order. Although not doing spectacular in the live ratings, it is apparently NBC’s most time-shifted (people watching later on DVRs) show.
However, those looking forward NBC’s reboot of the classic comedy The Munsters (which was going by the title Mockingbird Lane, referring to the street the Munsters lived on) will get no joy, as it appears that NBC has chosen to pass on the series after the pilot. I was originally very skeptical of the show, but after landing Eddie Izzard as Grampa I thought it could have been interesting. No idea if they plan to air or release the pilot.
Update: Maybe Mockingbird Lane isn’t dead. At least according to producer Bryan Fuller on Twitter: NBC just informed me the Deadline article regarding #MockingbirdLane was Dead Wrong. Stay tuned for updates!
Here is a sneak peek and next week’s episode of Revolution: Which side is Miles really on?
