CBS picked up Man with a Plan and The Great Indoors for a full season today. The two sitcoms join Kevin Can Wait, Bull and McGuyver that already got that order. The only show awaiting its fate is Pure Genius and you don’t have to be a genius to know what that means. Although none of CBS’s 10p shows are doing that well, so you never know.
CBS wasn’t the only ones giving out good news, HBO asked for seconds seasons from Westworld, Divorce and Insecure. Jeez, HBO adds Sesame Street to their lineup and now their shows can only have one word in the title.
That loud wail you just heard from an unknown place was a fan of Game of Thrones. That’s because HBO announced today that the show is ending after its 8th season according to Entertainment Weekly. You might try to calm them down and tell them that means they still have 2 more seasons left, but I don’t that will give them any solace. How do you want the show to end?
I know I can’t wait for this show to end because I have never understood what all the hype is about and I am sick of hearing about it. And I can’t wait for AMC to chop off The Walking Dead’s too.
Even though HBO picked up Vinyl for a second season, today they announced that they are cancelling it. The network said, ““After careful consideration, we have decided not to proceed with a second season of ‘Vinyl.’ Obviously, this was not an easy decision. We have enormous respect for the creative team and cast for their hard work and passion on this project.”
The cable show starring Ray Romano and Olivia Wilde got a lot of buzz, but not a lot of viewers. I am sure the latter part played a big part in their decision.
I wanted to check it out, but everyone kept telling me it was boring. Which also accounts for why people were treating it like Vinyl records and not buying it.
The most important question about the cancellation, is does Wilde get to keep her Merkin?
Kit Harrington was on The Tonight Show on Friday the 13th and Jimmy Fallon wanted to know if he was superstitious. The Game of Thrones star said he is and then shared the strangest one he believes. He scratches his balls every time he sees an ambulance because he heard that it is good luck for the person inside.
He claims that it is an Italian tradition, but on quick internet search I could not find it anywhere. But don’t tell him because it is fun to watch him scratch his thrones whenever he sees an ambulance. Even a model one that the NBC late host brought out to see if he would do it. He did!
Even though HBO picked up The Brink for a second season, they announced today that they will not be moving forward with the show because they would not be able to promote it properly.
Which makes me think the two leads, Jack Black and Tim Robbins, would be perfect for True Detective 3. Although, HBO still has not picked up that show for a third season after the disastrous second one.
