LO: CI reruns replace "Chopping Block"

Futon Critic, 3.26.09 - thanks Peachybc!

NBC has put "The Chopping Block" on... the chopping block.

Scheduling updates released this evening indicate repeats of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" will assume the show's Wednesday, 8:00/7:00c slot effective immediately.

"Block" was the least-watched program on the night for the second week in a row (save for a repeat of The CW's "90210"), posting a series low 0.9 rating among adults 18-49 on Wednesday.

TV Guest Stars We Want To See

411mania.com, 3.20.09
by Trevor Snyder

1. Al Pacino on Law & Order: Criminal Intent

Of course, Pacino would have to square off againt Vincent D'Onofrio's Detective Robert Goren. Chris Noth's now retired Mike Logan would be too low key an adversary for the combustible Pacino, and while Jeff Goldblum can be intense and scary and whatnot, we haven't had a chance to see his Detective Zach Nichols in action so we don't really know what he's all about yet. A Pacino/D'Onofrio confrontation would be epic in scope. There'd be quiet dialog moments, wild yelling, probably a bit of crying. It would be riveting, especially if the confrontation occured in an interrogation room. Just four walls, a table, two chairs, and a mirror and Pacino and D'Onofrio. I think the whole TV watching world would shit itself from the intensity, and that's before either one said anything. This needs to happen. It really, really does.

Thanks Judy!!

Kate Erbe for North Shore Animal League

Long Island Press, 3.12.09
By Ertan Bicer

In a lighthearted ceremony, the North Shore Animal League America launched its ninth-annual Tour For Life 2009 on Thursday March 12, from its Port Washington location. Celebrity spokeswoman Kathryn Erbe, from NBC’s Law and Order: Criminal Intent, was there to wish drivers farewell as two Animal League Mobile Adoption Units set off for the west coast to begin their six-week tour of 24 cities across 15 states to help animal shelters and rescues organizations adopt homeless pets.

“As a pet owner and animal lover, this life-saving tour is close to my heart. Adopting from a shelter is the right choice,” says Erbe, whose own “mutt-i-gree”, Lilah, was adopted from North Shore Animal League America.

Kathryn Erbe for Tour for Life

Actress Kathryn Erbe of TV's Law & Order: Criminal Intent Is National Spokesperson for North Shore Animal League America's Tour for Life(R) 2009

PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., March 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --
North Shore Animal League America, the world's largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization, and television and film actress Kathryn Erbe announce the ninth annual Tour For Life(R), the world's largest cooperative adoption event.

-excerpted-
"As a pet owner and animal lover, this life-saving tour is truly close to my heart. Adopting from a shelter is the right choice," said spokesperson Erbe, whose own mixed-breed Lilah was adopted from North Shore Animal League America. With more than 25 million mixed-breed dog owners in America, Erbe and the Tour For Life participants believe that the 2009 Tour For Life will help enhance the way animal lovers and potential adopters view mixed-breed pets, promote shelter adoptions and help reduce euthanasia rates.

For one month, beginning the last week in March, the Animal League's Mobile Adoption Units travel two cross-country routes, simultaneously, stopping at scheduled destinations, helping more than 100 shelters and rescue groups find homes for orphaned pets. All pets adopted during Tour For Life receive a free gift from Purina(R). Tour For Life ends with a "Grand Finale" event, hosted by Erbe at FAO Schwarz in New York City on Saturday, April 25, featuring celebrities posing in the world-famous toy store windows with puppies.

"The Narrows" released in June

Update here.
----------------
Associated Press, 3.3.09
By Ryan Nakashima

LOS ANGELES -- Digital cinema technology is being touted as a way for independent filmmakers to bypass the major studios.

Morristown, N.J.-based Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. said Tuesday it had agreed to distribute up to 15 movies from Olympus Pictures LLC through 2015 at a cost below what studios typically demand.

Santa Monica, Calif.-based Olympus agreed to pay for most of the advertising and the cost of digital file transfers, by hard drive or satellite, in exchange for a larger share of the box office gross than is standard industry practice.

.........The first picture to be released under the deal will be "The Narrows," which debuted at the Toronto Film Festival last year. It is expected to be shown in 15 to 20 major U.S. markets in June. Full article.
