Tonight on the Tube: Falcon Beach, How I Met Your Mother, Heroes, 24 and The Riches

Get Episodes of 24 at iTunesFor those wondering about Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, NBC has announced its return. It will not be back on Mondays though, as it will play its final six episodes on Thursdays. ER has its season finale on May 17th and Studio 60 will make its return the next week on May 24th in the ER timeslot. Since this is the day after the May sweeps period ends and by then NBC will have already announced their Fall 2007 Schedule, it doesn’t look like there is much chance of a second season. At least, they have had plenty of time to give the show a proper ending. What do you think about the return of Studio 60 on NBC?

Are you a Falcon Beach fan? Well, there is some bad news for you then. ABC Family has decided not to pick up the show for a third season. It will, however, continue playing the second season until it wraps up on July 2nd. The show was filmed in Canada and the second season has already played on Global Television up there. Unfortunately, that means stories will be left with no resolution, since the filming was completed long ago. Will you continue to watch? What do you think of the cancellation?

If you are looking for Drive tonight on FOX before 24, you won’t find it. FOX has put the brakes on after four episodes and will replace it for the rest of the season with reruns of House. Did you like Drive? Were you one of its few viewers?
