Mark your calendars for The CW premiere dates!
June 8th, 2017 under The CW. [ Comments: none ]

We are around 4 months away from the start of the 2017-2018 TV season and today The CW announced when their shows will be back. While most shows on broadcast television will be back in September, we will have to wait until mid-October for them to come back to TV on The CW. Although waiting sucks, good things come to those who wait. I have seen Dynasty and you are going to love it. Almost as much as Rachel Bloom loves that Crazy Ex Girlfriend is coming back on Friday the 13th.

Can Arrow’s Stephen Amell beat the American Ninja Warrior course?
May 18th, 2017 under NBC, The CW. [ Comments: none ]

We know that Stephen Amell is good at stunts on The CW’s Arrow, but how is he in real life? Next Thursday, we will find out when he attempts the American Ninja Warrior course on the Red Nose Day special. In the above preview he is pretty impressive. Actually, he is more than impressive. He worked those Fly Wheels like a real Superhero. I have not been this wowed by him since Hung, but that was for a completely different reason!!!


Here’s The CW’s Fall Schedule
May 18th, 2017 under The CW. [ Comments: none ]

The CW announced their Fall Schedule today and all but Tuesday is different.

Monday nights start off with Supergirl and that leads into their new show Valor.

Tuesdays remain the same while Wednesdays is all new. The night starts off with Riverdale based on The Archie comics characters and ends with a remake of Dynasty. As of now none of the originals have been cast, but Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW told me he would love to have them on if their schedules allow.

Thursday finds Supernatural in another new timeslot followed by Arrow on its new day and time. This has proven to be a good pairing in the past, so hopefully it won’t be destroyed by its major competition like TGIT, TBBT and TIU.

Finally, Fridays reunite Crazy Ex Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin. I am happy to see them back together.

Even though there is a lot of change, I think they did a good job with their schedule.

On a CW Seed note, they are adding Everwood on June 1st and Dynasty on August 1st. If you not familiar with the original you can binge it before the remake. Which I will be doing!

All four of this season’s time travel broadcast shows have been cancelled
May 11th, 2017 under ABC, Fox, NBC, Primetime TV, The CW. [ Comments: none ]

A year ago, when the networks announced their 2016-2017 schedules, time travel was a big theme. NBC had Timeless, The CW had Frequency, ABC had Time After Time and Fox had Making History. Now, a year later all four have them are no longer traveling through any more time time. That is because all of four were cancelled. Making the TV Execs wish they had a time machine, so they could come up with a more winning theme.

Ever since I was a kid and I saw the movie Time After Time, I fell in love with the concept of time traveling. Therefore, I looked forward to and watched all the shows.

Timeless was up first and it started out good. Then they focused more on the conspiracy theory then traveling through time. Causing me to lose interest in the show which had an occasional good episode.

Next up was Frequency and I loved the pilot. But, I stopped watching after 3 episodes and I honestly can’t remember why.

Time After Time was the one I looked most forward to because the movie was a huge part of my childhood. I am still obsessed with Jack the Ripper because of it. Anyways, I liked the show and where they were going with it, but ABC pulled it after just a few episodes. Which I think was a huge mistake even though the numbers weren’t there unfortunately.

Finally, there was Making History and Leighton Meester is absolutely brilliant on this show. She needs to work nonstop after this. But back to the show. I think they got lost somewhere in the writing because it is very scattered. Because of that it is one of TV’s lowest rated shows with barely over a million tuning in each week.

Having said all of that, I don’t foresee any time travel shows being announced next week at he upfronts. I do expect a lot of This Is Us knock offs and most of them failing.

Talking about failing, Making History wasn’t the only show cancelled at Fox today. Son of Zorn and APB also bit the dust. While Fox was giving us bad news, NBC picked up Blindspot and Blacklist for another season.

Stay tuned for more because we are still missing the fates for a lot of the ABC, CBS and Fox comedies. Which will be no laughing matter for me.

UPDATE: ABC and NBC picked up and cancelled a lot of shows.

ABC picked up the beloved comedy The Goldbergs for not one, but two more seasons! While American Housewife, Designated Survivor, Once Upon a Time and Agents of a Shield will back for another season. When it comes to who won’t be back, that list is longer. Going going gone are American Crime, Secrets & Lies, Imaginary Mary, The Real O’Neals, The Catch and Dr Ken.

Those are their scripted show, they also picked up Shark Tank, The Bachelor and Dancing with the Stars. The latter got not one but two cycles which means that American Idol and Dancing with Stars will both air in the Spring. I think that will be a huge mistake. Too much for a reality for a network that has the least of it of the big 4.

Now what about NBC, Powerless lost its power and Great News got some great news. Oh and The Voice continues to mess with Idol because they announced that Kelly Clarkson joins the show as a coach in the Spring. Yesterday, they announced that Jennifer Hudson is joining the show in the Fall.


Lots of cancellations and some renewals!
May 10th, 2017 under ABC, Fox, NBC, Primetime TV, The CW. [ Comments: none ]

Tis the season that television lovers hate. That is when they find out which of their favorite Broadcast shows will be back and which one won’t be. For me, I fall in to the latter category and today several shows fell in to it too.

Over at ABC, the good news is that Modern Family will be back for not one but two more seasons. Which should be its last two, hopefully. Creativity wise it has been going down hill for while. Then we have American Idol’s first causality. Even though Last Man Standing does better than most of ABC’s other comedies and it airs on Friday nights, ABC cancelled the show after 6 seasons. But don’t worry Black-ish will be back for another season as if it wasn’t going to be.

CBS was quiet, while its sister station The CW renewed iZombie and The Originals for a fourth season. I am getting brains on the grill in honor of the pickup. Maybe awards shows will finally start to recognize Rose McIver who is the most underrated actress. While I wait to announce the new shows until next week, I have to tell you Dynasty is coming back and I am preparing to love to hate it every week.

Fox made my day because they picked up The Last Man on Earth for another season, so we will find out what Baby Phil Tandy Miller is going to look like. Will it have eyebrows and half a hair of head. Don’t send out the Bat signal because they also renewed Gotham is coming back too.

NBC was very vocal. They picked up Chicago Fire, Chicago PD and Chicago Med, but have not announced what they are going to with Chicago Justice. They did tell us that Timeless’ time is up. They also said that Jennifer Hudson is joining Miley Cyrus, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on The Voice. On a positive note, she won’t be on the American Idol reboot.

In case you were wondering why I have a song from Jesus Christ Superstar at the top of my post, that is because it is getting the live treatment this Easter on NBC. I am hoping they cast Josh Groban as Jesus, Vanessa Hudgens as Mary Magdalene and I can’t believe I am saying this but Taylor Hicks as Pontius Pilate. Who do you want to cast in the lead roles?
