'The Life and Times of Tim' Is Saved! HBO Picks Up Show for Third Season

'The Life & Times of Tim' lives again! After being canceled by HBO, the show was shopped around before finding a home at ... HBO. Yes, according to Deadline Hollywood, the premium cable channel has picked up the animated series for a 10-episode third season. The project from MRC and Good Humor TV was canceled by HBO in June and shopped around to TBS, Comedy Central and Adult Swim before landing back at HBO. The cult-hit follows the life of Tim, voiced by series creator and writer Steve Dildarian, and his awkward adventures in New York City with his girlfriend Amy, voiced by M.J. Otto. In 2007, 'Tim' was produced for Fox, but the network passed on the pilot. Last season the series was paired with MRC's 'The Ricky Gervais Show' in an animated comedy block. Source Here

The Life and Death of Tim, HBO cancels animated series, but will it live on?

According to, HBO is not renewing The Life & Times of Tim for a third season, but that may not mean the end of the show. The underrated animated series has earned a small following in its first two seasons, but has failed to break into the mainstream on the premium cable network. Deadline reports that the show is now being shopped to basic cable networks like Comedy Central, Cartoon Network and TBS, and has had some interest from more than one of them. The deal would include the 20 episodes already produced as well as a potential new season. Created by Steve Dildarian (who produces, directs and voices the main character), The Life & Times of Tim follows an everyday guy who, according to HBO's official description, goes "from one scandalous crisis to the next, introducing his cadre of outrageous friends along the way." It was originally produced as a pilot for Fox, but the network passed. After a subsequent deal with Comedy Central fell through, the project went to HBO, where it ran for two 10-episode seasons. This year it was scheduled alongside the first season of the more high-profile animated series The Ricky Gervais Show, which the network did renew. Source Here

Tonight's TV Hot List: Friday, April 30, 2010

* Medium (9/8c NBC) A neighborhood slaying puts Allison and her family on the defensive. In the wake of the murder of her neighbor (Jonathan Silverman), our matriarchal medium springs into action, installing a high-tech security system in her home. But that's when a bizarre Kubrickian drama plays out. Straight out of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Allison comes to believe this cutting-edge alarm system has a mind of its own and is actually communicating with young Marie. Dub this one "2010: A Case Oddity." Meanwhile, eldest daughter Ariel sees dead people: She encounters a ghost who might be able to help her attend a coveted college. * Who Do You Think You Are? (8/7c NBC) Co-executive producer Lisa Kudrow's seven-part celeb family-tree series closes its inaugural season. The ancestral investigations spike in the season finale with filmmaker Spike Lee as the focus. The acclaimed director and Oscar nominee (for 1989's Do the Right Thing and 1997's 4 Little Girls) delves into his family's past in a fact-finding mission that directs him to Georgia and Texas. Ultimately, he discovers a surprising connection with his great-great-grandfather and meets an unlikely relative. * The Life & Times of Tim (9:30/8:30c HBO ) As long as he toils under a self-absorbed boss, it's pretty clear that Tim is never going to rise above his current station at Omnicorp. This could all change, however, when the company's visiting chairman (voice of Alfred Molina) from England sees Tim's promise in the second-season finale. Of course, things don't always work out for Tim, so he winds up spending a lot more time at O'Flaherty's, where his fortunes change after a chance encounter with a famous novelist (Philip Baker Hall). * Smallville (8/7c The CW ) Zod leaves his mark on Oliver - literally - when, after a confrontation that leaves the do-gooder at death's door, he brands Oliver's chest with a Z. Meanwhile, Oliver's gal pal Chloe is trapped with Tess inside Watchtower and realizes that the Kandorians have a direct line to Watchtower's server, and the connection must be severed. But the worst news of all is what Clark uncovers: Zod's soldiers have all been given superpowers - and that can't be good. * Stargate Universe (9/8c Syfy ) If Lt. Scott, Eli, Chloe or Greer ever wondered what could be worse than being trapped on a runaway spaceship, this episode will put an end to that curiosity as the away team becomes lost in a planet's underground maze while the aforementioned runaway ship takes off without them. Tune in to see if Dr. Rush and Col. Young have any clever ideas for rescuing their left-behind comrades. * Live From Abbey Road (8/7c Sundance) Arguably the best popular-music show on TV, this episode showcases a trio of superb groups. Florence and the Machine hit on all cylinders and ride the ethereal lilt of lead singer Florence Welch. Highlights are the beautifully melodious "Rabbit Heart" and the intoxicatingly powerful "Hurricane Drunk." Chairlift leaves its mark with the synth-poppy peppy "Bruises," and the Killers do a killer version of the movingly poetic "Human," paced by front man Brandon Flowers' impassioned vocals. * Now on PBS (8:30/7:30c PBS) Tonight marks the end of an era: Both Now on PBS and Bill Moyers' Journal come to an end, replaced next week by a new public-affairs program that promises to add an online angle. Now looks back at its coverage of the economy, the push for health-care reform and the environment; Moyers' show features a conversation with populist commentator Jim Hightower about the growing distrust people have of the federal government.

Tonight's TV Hot List: Friday, March 12, 2010

* Medium (9/8c CBS) Psychic drama mama Allison DuBois does the time warp. The series takes a bounce back in time to Allison and Joe's nuptials, a special day that finds the couple prepping for their big "I do" moment. But even as she opens this new chapter in her life, Allison sees her paranormal gift coming into play, and she's forced to face up to its ever-expanding powers. Bruce Gray and Kathy Baker return in their roles as Joe's parents. Actor David Paymer directed the episode. * Numb3rs (10/9c CBS) The show's number may be up. The sixth season concludes with Charlie and Amita getting married and heading off to England, where they will begin teaching at Cambridge. They needn't hurry back. CBS hasn't officially canceled the series, but it only ordered 16 episodes for the sixth season and, after airing two weeks of college-basketball playoffs beginning next week, is launching Miami Medical on Friday, April 2, at 10/9c. For NUMB3RS fans, it all adds up to zero. * Supernanny (9/8c ABC) If you've ever wondered what happens when Jo Frost says good-bye at the end of an episode, be sure to check out tonight's sixth-season finale as she checks in with families from years past in a trio of emotional reunions. It also marks the series' 100th show, a milestone mirrored by how far these folks have come, especially a woman from Season 5 who lost her husband to cancer just a few weeks before Jo's visit, and had to raise two young children on her own. * Who Do You Think You Are? (8/7c NBC) In the second episode of a seven-part profile series that charts a celebrity's lineage, sports analyst and former football player Emmitt Smith takes the ball and digs into the roots of his family tree. Driven by a rumor that his grandmother may have had white ancestry, Emmitt goes the extra yard to explore details. His investigative travels direct him deep into Alabama, colonial Virginia and beyond, resulting in the revelation of a dramatic family history. * The Life & Times of Tim (9:30/8:30c HBO ) For nearly a century, the Girl Scouts of the USA have made a (Thin) mint selling their famous cookies. But in the first half of this episode, Tim thinks he's found a way for a boy-scout troop to equal the profits of their distaff counterparts. In the second cartoon, it's a toss-up whether Rodney's co-workers are more surprised by the fact that he's married or that he suspects his wife is cheating on him with a hockey player. In any case, it's up to Tim to get to the bottom of this mystery. Source Here

Fans of THE LIFE & TIMES OF TIM have something to look forward to tonight. Season 2 airs this Friday, February 19th at 9:30 PM on HBO. For those of you not familiar with the show, The Life & Times of Tim is an animated comedy that tells the story of Tim Dildarian, an average cubicle monkey that works for the generic company "Omnicorp" in New York. Think Seinfeld meets Office Space...only animated and there aren't as many characters. Season 2 kicks off with two shorts: "Tim's Beard" and "Unjustly Neglected Drama". In Tim's Beard, *spoiler alert*, Tim grows a post-break up beard, for which he becomes the object of ridicule from his co-workers. By the way, why do men do this? It's like the female equivalent of a tub of ice cream and a pair of new shoes. Personally though, I think beards normally look pretty cool, even on Tim. Anyway, back to the show. Besides getting berated for his misunderstood and under-appreciated facial hair, Tim also goes on an awkward date with an unusual woman. He also finds himself in a situation where he must compete with a homeless man. In "Unjustly Neglected Drama" Tim attends a dull play for Stu and ends up getting in trouble with the police. He also learns an important lesson about giving an honest review. This was my first time checking out The Life & Times of Tim and I was very impressed. The writing is solid, the characters are fun, and at times you forget you are watching an animated series. If you are already a fan of the show, I think you're going to be pleased with Season 2. If you are a newbie to The Life & Times of Tim like me, I encourage you to check it out. If you are a fan of shows such as: Seinfeld, The Office, Extras, etc then you'll probably enjoy The Life & Times of Tim. Source & Here
