Via Apple:

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

CBS’s latest hit is the highest-rated new show of the season.

CBS has ordered an additional 9 episodes to the 13 episode order of it’s latest half hour sitcom Two Broke Girls. This comes as a shock to no one as the show hit astronomical ratings from it’s Two and A Half Men lead-in. The multi-cam comedy is currently the highest-rated new show of the season with averaging 15.5 million viewers and a 5.8 adults 18-49 rating, winning it’s time slot for the last 3 weeks in a row.

Two Broke Girls stars Kat Dennings as Max a hipster-hating waitress in New York who becomes friends with her co-worker Caroline (played by Beth Behrs) who is an heiress who lost it all after her rich father was exposed to having a Bernie Madoff-like scandal. Two Broke Girls airs Monday nights at 8:30PM after How I Met Your Mother on CBS.

‘The Playboy Club’ Cancelled, ‘Whitney’ and ‘Up All Night’ Picked Up by NBC

The Fall TV season has suffered its first casualty, three weeks in.

NBC has canceled The Playboy Club, which launched with a disappointing 5.7 million viewers, and sunk lower week-to week, bottoming out at 3.4 million last night, with just a puny 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.

On the flip side, NBC has renewed 2 of it’s Fall comedies, the Whitney Cummings-starrer Whitney and Christina Applegate’s Up All Night. Both comedies have been performing modestly, but at this point, NBC is in such bad shape, modest-to-low is good enough enough for them.

More to come…

Most Wanted: Apple’s Big Event

This week, is an odd one. For the first time since the list was made, I didn’t post 2 consecutive weeks of the Most Wanted List. I didn’t do it intentionally, but when I realized it, I found it pointless to, because it was already too late. For that, I’m sorry. Although I feel a bit awkward to put out one after a long time, this week is a very eventful and important one. I think you guys know what the first one is. It’s very obvious due to this week’s events. So here we go: here’s the list!

1. Apple’s ‘Let’s Talk iPhone’ Event

It’s that time of year again. Actually, it should have occurred back in June, but a little device called the Verizon iPhone got in the way of that. Nonetheless, its here. Apple is expected to unveil some kind of device, whether its the iPhone 5 or 4S or iPod Touch 5 or all, is yet to be known. What will it be? Tune in at Apple’s press event in Cupertino today for the announcement (note: It will be the first iPhone event without founder and former CEO Steve Jobs).

2. Homeland

I didn’t get the chance to alert you of this show, but this one’s a MUST WATCH! The crazy thing is that this show wasn’t on my radar at all, and it turns out that it’s one of (if not,) the best new show of the Fall. Plot in one sentence: A slightly crazy CIA Agent suspects that a soldier who was in captivity for 8 years has been turned against his country. Two words for you all: WATCH IT.

3. Parks and Recreation

The season is off to a great start, and with last week’s episode full of liquor and Tammys, I can’t wait for what’s in store for TV’s best comedy.

4. American Horror Story – Series Premiere

The reviews haven’t been great, but the fact of the matter is, nothing likethis has been done on TV. Many are calling it scary, bizarre, and outrageous. I’ll watch the first 3 episodes to give it a chance, but I’m very reluctant.

5. iPod

Will the iPod classic be discontinued? That’s another question at Apple’s big event today.

That’s all for this week! Again, sorry for the lack of lists and posts, I’m trying to figure things out to make the s
