ABC announced their new fall schedule today. For the first time in many years, there will only be a few changes. Because of that there isn’t much to say.
I am looking forward to their new comedies because I am one of the few people who loves them. I also love all of the ones on ABC, so I know the new ones and the returning ones will make me laugh. Well all of them except for Uncle Buck because that seems unnecessary. I thought that was one of John Hughes weaker films.
What do you think of their new fall schedule?
8:00 p.m. “Dancing with the Stars”
10:00 p.m. “Castle”
8:00 p.m. “THE MUPPETS”
8:30 p.m. “Fresh Off the Boat”

10:00 p.m. “QUANTICO”
8:00 p.m. “The Middle”
8:30 p.m. “The Goldbergs”
9:00 p.m. “Modern Family”

A few weeks ago Nathan Fillion re-signed his contract to remain on Castle for at least another season, but Stana Katic had not. So we questioned whether or not she will back. Today, just hours after the season finale aired, she agreed to do one more season. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it might be the show’s last. In fact, they say that season 8 might only be 13 episodes.
Something I am OK with. The show was a mess this season up until the Saturday Night Live episode and it lost that loving that feeling with the new showrunner. Even though he is leaving, I am still OK with this show being 13 and out. Are you?
UPDATE: Stana Katic released a statement about her re-signing with Castle. And ABC denied the The Hollywood Reporter story that next season, as of now, will be Castle’s last.
ABC has cancelled Cristela, Forever, Resurrection and The Taste. I am not surprised that Cristela and Resurrection got the ax because both shows set up for crappy seasons next year. I am saddened about Forever’s demise because it was a strong enjoyable show. Hopefully Syfy, will give it a second life.
When it comes to what shows will live on on ABC are Galavant (that photo is Timothy Omundson‘s reaction to his show coming back), Castle, Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, Scandal, Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter, Once Upon a Time, American Crime, Secrets and Lies, Fresh Off the Boat, The Middle, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, blackish, America’s Funniest Videos, Dancing with the Stars, The Bachelor, Shark Tank, Beyond the Tank and 20/20.
Last Man Standing is the last show standing on its future, hopefully it will be back for another season.
It took 7 seasons, but Castle is finally doing a Saturday Night Live like episode called Dead from New York tonight at 10p on ABC.
When Sid Ross (aka Lorne Michaels) is murdered, Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) have to find out who it did. The husband and wife discover that there are as many suspects as there are secrets about his life. As they investigate the crime, the writers of the procedural comedy wrote many funny lines dissing the NBC sketch comedy. Lines that you will find yourself laughing at and thinking they are so right on.
When it comes to the suspects, the first one is the star of the show Mickey Franks (Jaleel White) who is about to get fired from it because he has been acting crazy. Is he crazy enough to kill his boss? Danny Valentine (Gregory Harrison) is like the Steve Martin and has been a friend of Ross’ since before the start of the show. Did something come between them that lead to him killing his buddy? Was it one of the staff? Was it someone from his past? Just when you think you know, there’s a twist that makes you think differently. Will you figure it out before Castle and Beckett or will they beat you to it?
You just have tune in this episode that reminds how truly good this show is as it makes fun of one that isn’t.
On a side note, I know that Fillion signed on for another season, but Katic hasn’t. If she doesn’t put her Hancock on the dotted line, I say it is time to let this show go. Both of them are the show, and without both of them there’s no reason to go on. What do you think?
Many of us have spent our Friday nights watching Tank on ABC, wondering what happens to the entrepreneurs after they leave the room. For the most part, the only way we know if they are successful or not is if we see their products on the shelves or on TV.
Tonight at 9p, Beyond the Tank updates us on their success or failure. For the next three weeks, not only do they look at the people who got a deal, but also some of them who didn’t.
On the premiere episode, Robert Herjavec visits Tipsy Elves, who make a different kind of Christmas sweater. We find out what they have been up to, how much they made and how they plan to branch out.
Also on the show, Desmond John visits Deboned Baby Back Ribs, who makes boneless ribs and he hit a major snag after the show. John tells him to fix it or he is walking away. What will he do?
Finally, Carter Kostler didn’t get an offer in the tank for his Define Bottle, but the 16 year old didn’t let that stop him. See what he has been doing since he was rejected from the popular show.
Even though Beyond the Tank is only going to be on for three weeks, the show definitely makes a case for becoming a weekly series. So tune in to ABC tonight, next Friday and the Friday after at 9p post Shark Tank to find out what happens after we saw them last.
After 4 seasons, ABC is saying goodbye to Revenge after 2 more episodes according to Entertainment Weekly.
Fans of the show, felt it was time to end. People who stopped watching it, knew it was over a long time ago. And people who studied the ratings knew the writing was on the wall.
If that was not enough, the fact that Emily’s father was alive, meant it was time for the show to die. The show also lost its identity when Emily was revealed as Amanda Clarke. But the biggest nail in the coffin was when Victoria blew herself up and found herself in one.
Are you sad that Revenge is over or are you going to miss it?
Believe it or not, Fresh Off the Boat is already airing its season finale on ABC tonight at 8p.
Things have been going so well for The Huangs that Jessica (Constance Wu) and Louis (Randall Park) have been asked to join the local country club. When someone tells them that the couple they forget that they are Chinese, Jessica goes back to her roots and thinks the family should do the same so they don’t forget where they came from. That means the boys go to Chinese school, Jessica is only serving Chinese foods and Louis can’t open a second restaurant.
Will her plan work or will they rebel against her? You have to watch this sweet season finale to find out.
Also at 8p on Fox, someone is forced to leave Hell’s Kitchen in the crappiest possible way. The day starts off normally for the 11 contestants, but then one of them goes into bathroom and things change. That person screams in pain, so much so Gordon Ramsay tells them that they can’t continue on with the competition. What causes the pain, you will just have to tune in to find out. Also to find out if their departure means that no one will go home after another disastrous dinner service.
Also on Fox, but at 9:30p Weird Loners is back with another hilarious episode.
Eric (Nate Torrence) is on a human chess team, and he could be promoted to Rook. In order to get the promotion, he needs to get his next door neighbor Caryn (Becki Newton) to date the man who currently holds the position. She agrees to go on the date, but it is a disaster. Is it so much of a disaster that he will not get to move up to a Rook?
While they are playing Chess, Stosh (Zachary Knighton) sees an opportunity with Zara’s (Meera Rohit Kumbhani) artwork, so he enters her in art contest. Now the two of them are coming up with her persona for her to win. How overboard will they go? You just have to see it to believe it.
I don’t know why people aren’t watching Weird Loners, it seriously Fox’s most endearing comedy in a really long time. Please check it tonight, once you do I am sure you will be as hooked as I am!
Finally, at 10p on Esquire, its time The Runner Up, one of the most important shows on television during this political season. On this episode, Gay marriages are now allowed in North Carolina. Everyone wants to know Clay Aiken’s opinion on it and he isn’t saying much. He explains that he is for it as a gay man, but does not want that to define him while he is running for US Congress. He knows it is more important for him to get elected, and help people once he has job. It might not make sense the way I am typing it, but it will when you watch the show.
Even though Clay’s campaign manager tells him the most important thing to do is raise money for the campaign, he decides to take his message on the road with a bus tour. He thinks it is more important to talk to the people directly than ask for money.
On one of his stops, he will go to a Tea Party gathering. There are so many things he says to the voters there that makes me wish I could vote for him.
So much of what Clay says in each episode, proves what is wrong with our current elected officials. So many people and candidates are just about their political parties that they are not meeting in the middle. Clay wishes there are moderates in office and I am with him.
It isn’t only his wish that people weren’t only defined by their Political Party that makes me think this show should be shown in all schools, it is all the bullcrap that goes into to running for office. This show shows you it is more about the money than why you are running. And you wonder why DC is so f*cked up?
So tune for an eye opening look at how political campaigns are run these days, and see how truly horrifying it is. Remember we are less than 9 months away from the first Presidential Primary, and we should see what the candidates are doing to prep for the election. Hopefully this show will make people think about it so much so that we will be asking for a change! Let’s be honest, there needs to be one and it needs to happen yesterday.
ABC announced their summer lineup today and Celebrity Family Feud is on the schedule. Steve Harvey is bringing his popular game show over to the alphabet network for 6 episodes. Each episode 2 celebrities and their families will compete against each other for charity.
If that doesn’t get you excited? Celebrity Wife Swap will be back for a fourth season. As of now, we don’t know who the celebrities will be for either show, but you know they will be worth watching.
Besides those two shows, fan favorites Extreme Weight Loss, The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise are also returning. Mistresses and Rookie Blue are back to heat up our TVs in two different ways. The Whispers will put us to sleep and BattleBots will wake us up!
Who says there’s nothing to watch on TV in the summer? Not ABC!
To see when the above shows will them debut, then click here!
The other day The Middle’s Atticus Shaffer posted a photo of himself wearing a fake mustache and I knew I saw it somewhere else. That somewhere else was on Fresh Off the Boat‘s Hudson Yang‘s face during an episode of the very funny sitcom. Both young stars look good with it, but who do you think looks better with it. Who cares, let’s just say it is a tie because they are both just so cute?
For the first time in 11 seasons, there will be not one, but two Bachelorettes for the bachelors to chose from this upcoming season in May. According to ABC, they are “Britt, who captivated Chris Soules and the rest of Bachelor Nation with a memorable hug on that first night at the Bachelor mansion, and Kaitlyn, the gorgeous, fun-loving, warm-hearted, but irreverent firecracker who let down her guard only to have her heart crushed.”
The men will have to choose which Bachelorette they want to date for a few weeks; and once they decide, the handing out of the roses begins.
How will this all happen? We will just have to tune in on May 18th to find out.
Who do you think the bachelors will pick to be their suitor? And how do you think they decide?
UPDATE: Britt and Kaitlyn were both on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday and I think both of them made a good case to be your next Bachelorette. I just think that Britt made a better one. What about you?
