On Monday, Fox announced its Fall schedule and today they announced that they are already making changes to it. It looked like Pitch struck out and was going to be sent to Spring Training, but now the drama about the first female baseball player will debut in the Fall. The show takes over Bones’ Thursday at 9p slot in the Fall and the concluding procedural will now come back in the New Year at that time.
Pitch was supposed to air on Tuesdays at 9p in 2017, but since it moved up that means that Prison Break will now be held up at that time.
I get why Pitch is now debuting earlier in the season, Fox airs the Playoff and World Series and its getting a lot of positive buzz, but I wish they would’ve let Bones keep its slot and slated Scream Queens for the Spring. Now, that I think about it, it works out better for Bones because it won’t be up against Thursday Night Football on CBS and NBC.
All I can say about Fox‘s Fall schedules is that I am glad I have a DVR. Without I would never know when the shows that I watch are on.
When it comes to the new shows, I won’t comment on them until I see the trailers. Seeing is believing how good or atrocious they will be.
FOX FALL 2016 SCHEDULE
8:00-9:00 PM GOTHAM
9:00-10:00 PM LUCIFER
NBC had a great comedy with Undateable, but they just didn’t know how to promote it. They tried to by making it live, but then buried it on Fridays. The show just never had the support it needed. One season, it’s launched in the summer, then the next midseaon and finally the fall. People just didn’t know when to tune in because there was no consistency and no other strong sitcoms to pair it up with.
I am sure that everyone, who worked on the show, will land on their feet. I will just miss them. Someone give Bill Lawrence another show ASAP because he is the most caring Executive Producer out there who really cares about his show and the show’s fan. That and he knows humor!
Although, Lawrence just Tweeted that he will be shopping the show around and I pray someone buys it.
Undateable wasn’t the only show NBC broke up with today. They are no longer seeing Heartbeat, Crowded, Telenovela and Game of Silence. Heartbeat is their biggest loss of that bunch, another great show that was on the wrong network.
Talking about other networks. While ABC listened to the outraged fans and cancelled Castle after they lost one of the people who made up the show’s duo, Fox didn’t. Sleepy Hollow was renewed for a fourth season, even though the viewers were pissed that they killed off Nicole Beharie. That show, more than Castle, was built on the chemistry of the leads. Without that, the show will be deader than the Headless Horseman. I can’t wait to see how horrific the ratings will be for it.
Prince very rarely appeared on television, let alone a sitcom. But the late singer was a fan of New Girl, and he made a guest appearance on it. The writers wrote a party scene for him, and they invited a few celebrities to be on that episode. Two of the celebrities they asked were Kris Jenner and Khloe Kardashian, but wait you don’t remember seeing them on that episode?
Zooey Deschanel explained why we didn’t see them to Conan O’Brien on his TBS show yesterday. The adorkable actress said that on the day of Prince’s taping, she was studying her lines when a PA came in and frantically asked for the all scripts and call sheets. Then when she went outside she saw that PA burning all of the papers she just took. Turns out, when Prince’s people asked which celebrities were going to be on the show, Deschanel says that they said they hope it isn’t a Kardashian. Thus, why there was no evidence of them ever being on that special episode.
We all know that Prince was a genius, this is just further proof of that.
On the last episode of The Last Man on Earth, we got some happy news. Carol (Kristen Schaal) and Tandy (Will Forte) are expecting their first child together. Tonight at 9:30p on Fox, we get some sad news. The virus is back which means we finally learn more about it. By the end of the episode it will claim one victim. To find who has it and who dies, you will have tune in. Make sure you have the tissues ready because there will also be tears. A lot of aughs too, but also some tears.
When we saw Will Forte with the right side of his face completely shaved off for The Last Man on Earth, we never thought anyone else would do that to themselves. We were wrong.
When Kevin Gibson was arrested in Miami last week, he was sporting the same beard in his mugshot that was posted by WKMG. I guess he is a really big fan of the Fox sitcom or he lost a bet to someone who is. Either way let’s hope this is the last time we see this hairdon’t because it is one of the ugliest looks ever and that says a lot. But it is sure is funny how long they have been keeping the joke running on the show!
Tonight at 9p, Lucifer grows tired of the human race when someone is killing in his name. What he doesn’t know, is the group that is trying to summon Lucifer (Tom Ellis) are not the people actually doing the murders. The person doing that is someone he knows. Everyone is a suspect including him.
When someone he has had conflict with in the past is murdered, he becomes the main suspect. How will he get out of this?
That all leads up to next week’s suspenseful and surprise-filled season finale. One that begins with a shocking moment and doesn’t stop until the final seconds. That last reveal sets things up for the second season. Why talk about next week now? Because I won’t be able to preview it next week without spoiling any of the episode. It’s one of those episodes that is so devilishly good, you don’t want to miss a single second. But you have to watch tonight’s episode in order to truly love it. You know what, if you’ve missed the season, now is the time to catch up.
Lucifer truly is one of the best new shows of the season. So what are you waiting for?
Crowded is so crowded tonight that NBC gave the sitcom the full 9p hour! That’s right, you get twice as much laughs with the Empty Nesters stuck in a full house with their whole family.
Martina (Carrie Preston) is counseling a mother (Betty White) and daughter (Jane Leeves), who hate each other, and the two women become part of her life. The mother takes care of Martina’s sick husband, Mike (Patrick Warburton) and that makes him miss his mother who walked out on him when he was 7 years old.
Not only does White rub her hands all over Mike, she wants to rub her hands all over his dad (Stacy Keach). She tells him that his wife (Carlease Burke) is not going to Bible Study, but instead she is cheating on him. Is she? Wait until you find out what she is really doing.
White is also offering relationship advice to Mike and Martina’s younger daughter, Shea (Miranda Cosgrove), who a lot of chemistry with her internship partner. Can the microbiologists keep the flame extinguished?
Meanwhile, Leeves is helping Mike and Martina’s oldest daughter, Stella (Mia Serafino), work on her British accent for an audition. In turn, Stella is giving her a much needed makeover so she can start dating again.
Back to Mike, having someone mother over him, makes him want his own mother back. That gets us into the second episode, where the ladies in his life try to find her. When they do, they discover that she is one of those crazy cat ladies who hoards (Carol Kane). How will they make her presentable to reconnect with the son she hasn’t seen in 40 years?
You just have to watch this hour of so many laughs, your stomach will be hurting for 2 hours.
Last week, when we left off on Last Man on Earth, Tandy (Will Forte) had a new look. The left side of his head was completely shaved off because his younger brother, Mike (Jason Sudeikis), played a prank on him. Tonight’s episode on Fox at 9:30p is all about revenge.
Tandy will try to prank his brother, but no matter what he does, Mike seems one step ahead of him. Will Tandy ever get his revenge? Will the last two siblings on Earth make up? You have to tune into this highlarious episode to find out.
If you are like me, then you loved the first season of Sleepy Hollow. You loved the way that Abbie Mills and Ichabod Crane played off of each other as she tried to teach him about modern day and he schooled her on the Revolutionary War. Then the second season, the writers added his wife and that took away from the Mills/Crane relationship. You got hopeful that the show would get back to where it started when they killed her off, but then they added Abbie’s sister. She wasn’t the only one they added, they kept adding people and taking away from the original premise of the show. Eventually it became unwatchable, so like so many others I gave up on it.
We weren’t the only ones, Nicole Beharie who played Mills was killed off the show yesterday. Something Variety says she has wanted since before the third season started. Can you blame her?
Anyways after the episode ended, she Tweeted the above message for her fans. I am sure we will see her on TV soon because she is one of the few actresses who can actually play off of her male co-star.
When it comes to Sleepy Hollow, I highly doubt the show will be back for a fourth season. Without the chemistry between those two leads, there is no reason to go on. Can you think of any?
If I were Fox, I would cast Tom Mison on Lucifer as one of his Angelic brothers with a bad steak! How hot would that be?
Fox announced today that Lucifer and Rosewood will join The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, The Last Man on Earth, Family Guy, Gotham, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Scream Queens, Empire and Bones’ final season on their lineup next season. Missing from the list is Sleepy Hollow (most likely will decapitated), Bordertown (probably deported), Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life (not surviving death), Grandfathered (still undecided if it is on the menu), Grinder (the jury is out on this one) and New Girl (that is getting old).
When it comes to today news, I love the devilishly good Lucifer so I can’t wait to see what trouble he gets into next season. Tom Ellis has perfected being so good at being so hellishly bad.
