The premiere of Terra Nova, the Steven Spielberg-produced TV show about humans traveling 85 million years into the past to escape their crappy, everything-is-dead present, has been pushed back from May until next autumn.

The reason? Fox needs more time to work on the special effects. Said Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly:

Terra Nova is one of the most ambitious television series ever produced [...] The cutting-edge visual effects used to create the world of Terra Nova, which is of massive scope and scale, require more time to be realized. This aspect of the series is essential, so we are pushing back the special early preview date to give the visual effects team the time needed for their groundbreaking work.

Well, that's not a terrible idea. I don't know about you, but the trailer was giving me flashbacks to that episode of Sliders in which Jerry O'Connell and the gang slid back to dinosaur times. Speaking of which, where's my damn Sliders reboot? Get on that, Fox.
