Lucifer ends the season with a bang
May 29th, 2017 under Fox. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 9p on Fox, it is time for the Lucifer season finale. It is an episode that was a whole season in the making.

Now that Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and his brother Amenadiel (D. B. Woodside) finally have all the pieces of the sword, will they return to Heaven? To make matters worse, their mom (Tricia Helfer) is ready to explode, literally. Her human shell is falling apart and her time on Earth is expiring faster than a carton of milk. Charlotte goes to Dr Linda to fix her up, so that her illumination won’t kill any more people aka instantly burn them to death. The doctor comes up with a temporary fix, but how long will that last? Especially since she is the lead suspect in a murder that Chloe (Lauren German) is investigating. Time is of the essence and there isn’t much time left and desperation is kicking in for all of them.

Someone will take matters in their own hands to get the truth and sacrifices against their wills be made. All leading up to an epic conclusion and cliffhanger that will leave you saying WTF? As in can someone explain to me what just happened and what is going to happen?

Even though, I don’t understand the final few seconds, Lucifer has grown to be one of my favorite current shows on television. While so many shows have gone down hill, this one gets better with each episode. They know how to use the chemistry with the leads and not screw it up as they add more characters like some other shows aka Sleepy Hollow. As long as they keep that up, I will continue to watch this show live every Monday at 9p when it returns in the Fall.


You will have a love connection with Love Connection
May 25th, 2017 under Andy Cohen, Fox. [ Comments: none ]

When I heard that Fox was bringing back Love Connection with Andy Cohen as the host, I didn’t know what to expect. I was not sure what they were going to do to modernize it and if that modernization would ruin what made the original version so enjoyable. After watching the first episode, I am happy there is a perfect mix from the old and new versions, so you are going to want to make a date with it tonight and every Thursday this Summer at 9p.

The episode starts off with a suitor in a video describing why they decided to do the dating show. Then they come out to talk to Andy and we get to see the 3 people they went on a date with. As we meet each potential lover, we get to learn how they rated each other on just their appearances only. Next up we get hear how their dates went both live on the show and with confessions that were recorded on the date. Finally, it is time for them to decide which of the three they want to go out with again. If they audience picks the same person, the suitor gets $10,000. If not, they have to choose the date or the money. It will be interesting to see how many have a love connection and how many have a money connection.

Earlier this week, I was on a conference call with Cohen and he previewed the upcoming season.

What type of daters will we see?
Oh my Gd, we’ve got a great lesbian group of daters, one of whom comes out to her mother on the air. We’ve got a man who is in his 70’s who went on his first Tinder date or a first online date recently and the woman stood him up. So we set him up with three dates. We’ve got the gay guys; we have a surprising Real Housewife. We have a lot of big ones.

Who plans the date?
: They [the three daters] plan the dates [with the suitor]. We give them $500 and say do anything with it.

Did the show make any Love Connections?
Yes, you have updates on everybody and it’s incredible how many people are still dating and we’re keeping the updates kind of up to the minute.

What made him want to the show?
It’s just I loved the format, I loved asking awkward questions. It just felt like the perfect marriage of a show for me, of format.

How is he as a matchmaker?
I’ve had matchmaking successes for people who have wound up having great dates or hooking up, but I have not hooked up a couple that has wound up getting married.

Would he sit on the other side of the couch?
I would go on three dates but I don’t know if I would do it on TV.


Here is Fox’s Fall schedule!
May 15th, 2017 under Fox. [ Comments: none ]

Fox announced their Fall schedule and like NBC a lot of their shows will get new days and times.

On Mondays, Lucifer starts the night off with his devilish ways and leads into Marvel’s The Gifted. The latter looks like a darker version of Heroes. I think this will be their strongest night.

Tuesdays begin with Lethal Weapon and it has a lot to prove. Then they give us something to laugh about with The Mick and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. It will be interesting to see how the comedies do airing after a drama because the normal structure has them reversed.

Hump day is all Lee Daniels with Empire leading into Star.

Gotham has a new night and it is Thursdays at 8p. At 9p, Seth MacFarlane’s The Orville. Poor Orville is against This Is Us, so it has a strike against it.

Fridays are the same as last Fall with Hell’s Kitchen and The Exorcist. I am still trying to figure out why they picked the latter up for another season.

Finally, Sundays are the same except for the addition of Ghosted at 8:30p. Which is good because it is a strong night.

While that is what is on the schedule, Fox also talked about shows that are not on the schedule. The network feels that Scream Queens has told its story. 24: Legacy is on hold because the star’s lead is on Broadway and they haven’t yet talked about what the next season could entail. Finally, Prison Break was an event series and they will bring it back as such.

Will Fox lose its dignity with Rent?
May 12th, 2017 under Fox, RENT. [ Comments: none ]

In less that 525,600 minutes Fox will be adapting Rent for the small screen with a live version sometime next season. The Broadway musical is about AIDS, drugs, homosexuality and being as free as you can before the turn of the millennium in NYC. I just don’t know how they are going to do it for broadcast TV and keep the feel that the late Jonathan Larson was going for, you know La Vie Bohème, even though his estate gave their blessing for the production.

The only way I would approve of it, is if they get the original cast members to do it. But instead they will go with cast members from Glee. No one can see One Song Glory like Adam Pascal. His voice was made for Rent.

Now, I thought I would hate Grease Live, but I enjoyed it. I knew I would detest Rocky Horror Picture Show and I am still flipping mad over it. And not in a Dr. Frank-N-Furter way. Well kind of like how he felt towards Eddie sort of way.

Anyways, I will try to be positive, but Rent is one my favorite plays and I just don’t have enough faith in them to get it right. How do you feel about them doing Rent?


Fox is bringing A Christmas Story to life this Christmas!
May 12th, 2017 under Fox. [ Comments: none ]

On Monday, ABC announced that they were bringing back American Idol and NBC one upped them by announcing that they hired Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson as Coaches for The Voice. NBC announced that they are doing Jesus Christ Superstar live for Easter and Fox one upped them by announcing that they are doing A Christmas Story: The Musical live for Christmas. CBS the ball is your court for one upping all of that.

Now back to Fox, we know that A Christmas Story is a TBS staple every December 25th, but in 2012 a musical version went to Broadway. The latter version is coming to Fox this December. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who worked on Dear Evan Hansen, La La Land and ACS:TM, will be writing some new songs for the three hour production.

The only thing I ask, is not only will it be good, but also they find a way to incorporate Peter Billingsley in it. Without him, is there really a Christmas Story? Musical or not.
