If you’ve found yourself without a plan on this Labor Day Weekend, there’s a new way to keep yourself busy online.
Earlier this week, viewers of the old WB were given a free way to watch some of their now-cancelled shows. At TheWB.com, fans can access programs just like they would on any other network-sponsored site. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Smallville, Angel, Everwood, Roswell, One Tree Hill and Gilmore Girls are amongst the selections offered.
Meanwhile, other shows that didn’t originate on the WB (but were produced by Warner Bros.) are also included on the site. That list is comprised of such titles as Friends, The O.C., Veronica Mars, Babylon 5 and Firefly.
Although the number of episodes are currently limited, fresh hours will be posted weekly.

Feeling quite guilty that I haven’t come across the Dollhouse trailer until now, I felt like I should make up for it by doing Fox a favor and spreading the love!
The trailer for this fall’s sci-fi drama (which you can check out after the jump) has been out and about on YouTube and select TV spots, getting many pretty excited about its premiere. After all, it is Joss Whedon’s first series since Firefly, which went off the air back in 2003 (surprisingly with the same network his new show is on).
Dollhouse, starring former Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BTVS) favorite Eliza Dushku, focuses on a clandestine, illegal operation carried out by agents who have their memories and personalities completely erased after each mission. Dushku plays Echo, one operative who slowly starts to learn more and more about where she works over time—she becomes a known flaw in the system, if you will.
The series premieres in January on Fox, right before 24 in the Monday 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT spot.
It has been nearly five years since that fateful May night when BTVS fans witnessed the end of their beloved TV series. The following years, fans have intently watched as their favorite characters have branched off to new projects, leaving little hope of a BTVS movie, which so many “Buffy” lovers have longed and hoped for. Unfortunately, there are still no concrete plans of a movie, but fans have the Paley Center for Media (formerly the Museum of Television and Radio) to be eternally grateful to—they have announced a Buffy the Vampire Slayer reunion on Thursday, March 20th at the historic Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, CA!
Okay, Buffy fans—I have some good news and bad news to report.
Assuming Big Shots even lasts that long—you can expect Charisma’s run to start November 1.
While it’s doubtful a retooling of The Apprentice could bring back Season One ratings, NBC keeps plugging away on next season’s production. As reported, Donald Trump will be pulling a stunt out of the VH1 bag of tricks for his next outing. This time around, the apprentice pool will be comprised of camera-desperate celebrities. (What exactly would they win anyway? The chance to stay for free at his next hotel?)
For Joss Whedon fans, this ratings ploy may give them at least one thing to care about: Charisma Carpenter. According to TV Guide, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer star will be competing to get in Trump’s good graces. Given Donald’s inappropriate tendency to comment on his ‘attractive’ candidates, Carpenter (also a former Playboy subject) could make it far in the competition. But I’m just hoping her inner-Cordelia will surface to kick monster butt the next time he makes a creepy remark about his daughter.
