    Little doubt TNT will be faced with the choice between renewing Snowpiercer for a third season at somepoint this year or scheduling the second season sooner than expected.

    Why? Because they suspended filming on the final episode of the second season and given that cable shows are usually yearly. I really doubt the cast are optioned for more than 12 months. Sooner of later they will be faced with the prospect of “use them or lose them” as they will need to find new work too.

    Any numbers for the Smithsonian programs at 8pm (Mystic Britain) and 9pm (An American Aristocrat’s Guide to Great Estates)?
