Still the King is still the King, American Ripper is killer and The Bold Type is bold!
July 11th, 2017 under CMT, Freeform, History Channel. [ Comments: none ]

Don’t break my achy breaky heart, by not checking out the back-to-back episodes for the season 2 premiere of Still the King tonight at 10p on CMT. How many shows can you say top themselves during their sophomore season? Not that many and this show is one of the few that can. I do not know how this show found a way to make itself even wilder and wackier than it was last year, but they did.

On tonight’s season premiere, one hit wonder Vernon (Billy Ray Cyrus) is just out of prison and he moves in with his recently reunited baby mama Debbie Lynn (Joey Lauren Adams) and their teenage daughter Charlotte (Madison Iseman). Debbie Lynn just lost her lover Ronnie (Jon Sewell) in a boat explosion. To make matters worse for her, she is pregnant and does not know who the daddy is?

Vernon decides he is ready to step up and be the father he never was to Charlotte, who he did not know about. Only problem is Ronnie is not dead and now the two men are trying to be the better father to be.

Ronnie gets a job while Vernon returns to his musical roots. Meanwhile, it is Debbie Lynn who has the toughest of all, putting up with these two man children.

If you did not watch the first season of Still the King, it is OK. In fact, I want you enjoy this show as much as I am, and I just watch it live starting tonight and every Tuesday at 10p. You can binge the first season later, which will probably start at 11p tonight and you will pull all nighter.

There is nothing else like Still the King on television. It honestly a crazy horseback ride that you do not want to get off. Seriously the show is just pure fun. We need more shows like it on television and Cyrus is brilliant in this role.

Once again, I am begging you to watch because this truly is the best show on television this Summer and we need more episodes that the 13 that they ordered.

Ever since I was a kid, I have been obsessed with Jack Ripper. I always thought of him as a British serial killer, but tonight at 10p, American Ripper on History Channel questions if America’s first known serial killer H.H.Holmes and the Ripper are the same person.

His great-great grandson Jeff Mudgett believes his relative might not only be the infamous Chicago serial killer, but also Jack the Ripper. Tonight, he recruits former CIA. operative Amaryllis Fox to help him find out if it might true. They will follow his relative’s footsteps to see if there might be evidence that confirms what they are thinking. They will literally try to dig up the truth and from that we might finally know who Jack the Ripper is.

Could one of the biggest mysteries of our time finally be solved? It would explain how the Ripper was able to vanish without a trace. He returned to America and lived the rest of his killing around 200 people.

I know I for one am on this 8-part journey to find out what they find out. I want to know the truth. Even if they don’t prove the connection, it still intrigues me that 125 years later we still want to know who killed some prostitutes in London.

Finally at 9p, but on Freeform is the new page turning show The Bold Type. The drama follows three Millennials who work for the female empowering magazine Scarlett.

Jane (Katie Stevens) has just been promoted to writer and she is having a problem finding her voice. Her friend Kat (Aisha Dee) is the mag’s social media manager and she needs to learn when to shut up. Finally, there is there is their friend Sutton (Meghann Fahy) who is an assistant to one of the editors. She has held that job for four years and like her friends she wants a promotion. Something her secret boyfriend who works for the magazine might be able to help her do.

Each week as they are assigned a new task, they will each learn something new about themselves. Thankfully, they have each other to help them through each lesson. Because without friends, who are you?

The Bold Type is a different type of drama for the network and like most of their shows, you will quickly find yourself addicted to every nuance by the end of tonight’s 2-hour season premiere.


Could CMT save Last Man Standing?
June 14th, 2017 under CMT. [ Comments: none ]

Last month when ABC announced its 2017-2018 schedule, Last Man Standing was not on it. It was a shock because it was one of there top rated shows. Therefore, the cancellation was a huge surprise. Some people assumed it was given the axe because of Tim Allen’s political views, which I do not think was the case. I think Tim Allen was the reason it was cancelled and that is because he became too expensive to the network that recently picked up the costly American Idol and renewed Modern Family for 2 more seasons with a large expensive ensemble cast. The latter show is from the same outside studio (20th Century Fox), and networks are now trying to pick up shows from the same studio as them. If that makes sense.

When the network was asked why they did not renew the show that has a loyal fan base Channing Dungey, President, ABC Entertainment, explained her decision as because they decided to get rid of comedies on Friday nights, there was no room for the sitcom. Even Shark Tank found itself airing on a new night.

Anyways, out of all of the cancelled shows, I knew that LMS had the best chance of being picked up by someone else. Now according to The Hollywood Reporter, it looks CMT will be that someone else. This would not be the first time that CMT saved an ABC show, last year they picked up Nashville. Something that has proven to be a smart choice for them. Here is to hoping they revive LMS because I actually really enjoy the show. I liked that they tackle both sides of political issues and still make me laugh.

If you want CMT to pick up Last Man Standing, then you better send them your love arrows!


CMT is still singing Nashville’s Blues!
April 10th, 2017 under CMT, Hayden Panettiere. [ Comments: 2 ]

Even though ABC cancelled Nashville; CMT not only saved it for another season, they are sticking with it. The network announced today that they picked it up for their second and the show’s sixth one. The 16 episode season will debut early next year.

But wait, when will the show be back to finish off this current season. They announced today that all new episodes will start airing on June 1st, so mark it on your calendars. What can we expect when it returns, here’s what the press release says, “The midseason premiere picks up 10 weeks after the events that unfolded in the midseason finale. Deacon helps Daphne with a school project, but Daphne feels unmotivated. Juliette gives Maddie unsolicited advice about a song. Scarlett and Gunnar receive news about the baby.”

I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to the Rayna-free episodes. I just they were all Juliette, and bad Juliette to boot!


Connie Britton’s message for Nashville fans after yesterday’s sad episode
February 24th, 2017 under CMT. [ Comments: 1 ]


Fans of Nashville were shocked yesterday as they watched Rayna James die after what seemed like a survivable car accident. The tear-filled episode ended with James’ daughters and husband crying over her as she passed away. Leaving viewers to do the same.

After it concluded on CMT, Connie Britton took to Instagram with this heartfelt message for them.

Thank you Rayna Jaymes. For your magic and your dignity. And thank you to all the creators of Rayna Jaymes, for there were many. Callie Khouri, who gave her life. Deacon, Maddie, Daphne, who shaped her as her family. Teddy, Tandy, Lamar too. Juliette, Scarlett, Bucky and the ones who crafted her into a business woman. Along with countless other compatriots and combatants. And then of course the crew of “Nashville” who brought her to life, every crew member in every department who made Rayna live each week.

And then there’s the music. T Bone, Buddy, Tim, Frankie and all the brilliant songwriters who gave Rayna a voice. There was no music, and no Rayna, without you.

But finally and most importantly, the fans. You made Rayna. You supported her and loved her and gave her inspiration just as she was able to inspire you. You were the energy source, the power behind her heart and soul and life. Rayna lived for you.

And, from the depths of my heart, I thank you, for her and for me. It has been an honor to be a part of that creation. And as I know she would want it, the show must, and will go on. Long live Rayna Jaymes. #RIPRayna #NashvilleCMT

Even though her death was shocking, I don’t think it was a surprise. Even though the actress signed on to do the music drama when it moved from ABC to CMT, she said she was only going to do a handful of episodes. I was kind of hoping she was going to follow the tech billionaire to the West Coast and make occasional appearances. Yesterday’s episode put the final nail in her coffin literally and she won’t be back on the show.

Are you going to miss her?


Sun Records is for anyone who loves music!
February 23rd, 2017 under CMT. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’50s, Rock’n’Roll was just being born and Sam Phillips (Chad Michael Murray) was one of its fathers. He created a little record label/recording studio in Memphis, Tn and tonight at 10p on CMT you will learn his story of Sun Records. Several of the biggest artists of our time sang there and their stories will also be told.

Sam Phillips and his wife Becky (Jennifer Holland) moved to Memphis, so he could live out his dream. Dreams are not cheap and they put all of their money into Sun Records and that is still not enough. It is hard for him to get people to come in and sign up for a recording session that’s only cost $3.98. Back then that was a lot of money. Not only does he have a problem getting people in, Memphis is still racist and they don’t like the fact that African-Americans are coming into his studio.

He isn’t the only one facing a racism backlash. Some kid named Elvis Presley (Drake Milligan) is seen coming out of a Black Church and now the bad boy is blackballed around town especially with the girl he likes.

There is another boy, who likes a girl, and his name is Jerry Lee Lewis (Christian Lees), who can’t date the girl he likes. She is the Preacher’s daughter and her dad doesn’t like the teen. That is until he makes a decision that will change it all. Lewis’ cousin is also on the show, not that one, but Jimmy Swaggart (Jonah Lees). Side note, the TV cousins are twin brothers in real life.

Then there is Radio DJ Dewey Phillips (Keir O’Donnell) who is helping get Sam’s business off of the ground. Only problem is the station doesn’t like the music that Sam is bringing in. Because of that Sam is having financial difficulties and Dewey gets Sam’s assistant hired at the station.

Marion Keisker (Margaret Anne Florence) is not only working at Sun Records and the radio station, she is also sleeping with Sam. That makes things complicated for so many reasons.

There is another new guy in Memphis and his name is Colonel Tom Parker (Billy Gardell). This is him before he signed Elvis, so he is a lot different than the man we know. He didn’t come alone, he came with Country singer Eddy Arnold (Trevor Donovan) and he is growing tired of the Colonel’s ways.

See what I mean, lots for music lovers to love. Plus, it is a great fit with Nashville that is so much better on its new home. Therefore, tune in tonight and every Thursday at 10p for a period drama that is great balls of fire!!!

Seriously, I don’t know what CMT is doing, but they are killing with scripted programming between this, Nashville and Still the King. I love this network’s shows including these 3 shows and I Love Kellie Pickler!
