The Vampire Diaries has been struggling in the ratings since it lost its female star Nina Dobrev, so The CW decided to make a change. Starting on January 29th, the Vampire show moves to Fridays along with its spinoff The Originals. What will replace those two show on Thursday nights? Starting on January 21st, the much anticipated DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and the barely talked about The 100 will takeover the formers timeslots. Legends looks thrilling, but do we have room for another comic show? We shall see.
The scheduling change wasn’t The CW’s announcement today. They also decided to pick up 5 more episodes for The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and 6 more for iZombie. Personally, I am surprised that they are staying with Crazy because the lead is so unlikable. I want to like this show, but she is so over the top unappealing, it is hard to adore it like we show. When it comes to iZombie, I wish it got back 9 because I think it is the network’s best show.
Now there is one show whose future is in question and that is Reign. At this point, The CW doesn’t have a slot for it. I have to say, I am so OK with this period drama ending. It was built on the love story between Queen Mary of Scots and King Francis of France and with him out of the picture, there really is no reason for this show to go on. Do CW viewers really care about the politics of the 16th Century, I know I don’t. Do you? And what do you think of all of the changes?
If you are like me and you are still missing Constantine, then you can get a quick fix on tonight’s Arrow at 8p on The CW. The suspenseful episode will totally get your heart racing.
As we know, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) dug up sister Sara (Caity Lotz) from the grave and had her brought back to life. Sadly, it was not the Sara we knew and that is because she has no soul. Tonight, Constantine (Matt Ryan) will team up with Oliver (Stephen Amell) to get Sara back her soul. It will not be an easy task, but they are willing to risk it to save her. Will they all come out of this mission alive? You will just have to tune in to find out.
I am hoping the Big Wigs at The CW see how great Ryan is on the show, and decide to give Constantine a show of his own on their network. Or at the very least bring him back to Arrow a few more times. The chemistry between Ryan and Amell is dynamic and I would like to see it more often.
iZombie’s Executive Producer Dan Etheridge gave the keys to his apartment to the stars of his show, and I’m sure he quickly regretted that decision when he saw what Rose McIver and Rahul Kohli were doing in this photo. The two of them left their mark, well at least one of them did as we can see picture.
While they might be sh!tty housesitters, they are great at solving murders. Tune into iZombie tonight at 9p on The CW to see what personality Liz transforms into after she eats the brain of the latest murdered victim. McIver should get more credit for the awesome job she does taking on a new persona every week so flawlessly.
Talking about McIver, I didn’t realize she was wearing a wig on the show. I thought they dyed her hair that bleached blonde.
Just when you thought our televisions would be a little less musical without of Glee, here comes Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. The musical comedy debuts at 8p tonight at on The CW and it’s crazy good!
Back in 2005, Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) dated Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez III) at summer camp, but their love ended when their parents came to pick them up.
Now 10 years later, she is a successful lawyer in NYC who is about to be made partner. Only problem is that she isn’t sure she wants it. When she is outside contemplating her future, she see Josh Chan. The two of them reconnect in a special way, but he is moving back to West Covina, Ca.
She decides to quit her job and move to West Covina, but it is not because of Josh Chan.
As soon as she gets settled, she takes a job there as a lawyer. Paula (Donna Lynne Champlin) is her paralegal and she doesn’t trust Rebecca.
Now that she has an apartment and a job, she decides it is time to find Josh Chan. Instead she finds his friend Greg (Santino Fontana) and he falls for her. She doesn’t feel the same way, but he is her way to find Josh Chan.
Will her path cross with Josh Chan again? You will just have to watch and sing along to find out. It’s Monday and we all need something to sing about, and this is it.
Then at 9p, Jane the Virgin is back. The episode starts off where the season finale ended. We find out what happened to Mateo and how Jane (Gina Rodriguez) and Rafael (Justin Baldoni) can get their baby back. How long will this plotline last? What would be the fun in telling you?
Elsewhere on the show, her mother, Xo (Andrea Navedo), and father, Rogelio de la Vega (Jaime Camil), have not told anyone they are married. Petra (Yael Grobglas) is deciding what to do with the last of her ex-husband’s sperm. And then there’s Michael (Brett Dier) who continues to remain the nice guy.
I know I am not telling you much, but there are so many surprises during the season premiere, I want you to enjoy them just like I did.
I will tell you one thing, the show is just as enjoyable as it was last year. Not that many sophomore shows can say that and this one of the rare few.
If you have been wondering how The Vampire Diaries will go on without Elena (Nina Dobrev), then tonight at 8p on The CW you are going to get your answer.
The episode takes place a little while after the season finale and they are trying to get on with their lives. But then the Heretics come to Mystic Falls and the town will never be the same.
Stefan (Paul Wesley), Damon (Ian Somerhalder), Caroline (Candice Accola) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) have to come up with a plan to keep peace among the two groups, but will it work? We will have to tune in every week to find out.
I wasn’t sure if The Vampire Diaries could go on without its leading lady, but tonight they proved that they can. In fact, I think they have proven it much better than some other veteran shows who have yet to prove that they should’ve come back this season.
iZombie is back on The CW tonight at 9p and Liv (Rose McIver) is as grumpy as we are that we had to wait this long for a new episode.
The show picks up three months after the season finale and we find out how Liv’s brother is doing since his sister didn’t give him her blood. She will suffer ramifications from that decision, but she had to do it. Even though the cost was great. How costly was it?
We also get to see how Major (Robert Buckley) and Blaine (David Anders) are doing since they were given the Zombie cure. Are they still Zombie-free or did it work?
Now when it comes to why Liv is so grumpy, it has to deal with the murder she is investigating. Clive Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin) and her are trying to find out who killed the miserable old man on the block. Once Liv’s eats his brains, she turns into a major grump.
There is a new threat to Liv and the Zombies, and he is played by Steven Weber. It will be interesting to see how long he sticks around for because he goes from series to series.
One thing I hope that sticks around for a while is iZombie because I love the fresh take on the overdone genre.
Tonight at 9:30p on The CW’s The Significant Mother Jonathan Silverman is reunited with his Weekend at Bernie’s co-star Terry Kiser. The two men recreate a moment that looks a lot like a scene from their 1989 legendary movie. Not only will we get to see them working together again, I am sure we will be laughing just as hard.
If you have never seen The CW sitcom tune in tonight for a show that has you laughing from the beginning until the end of the episode. It is unlike anything else on television which is a good thing on its own, but the humor makes it even better. Then once you’ve enjoyed the show, you can watch the first few episodes on The CW app. This way you can find out how Jimmy (Nathaniel Buzolic) started hooking up with his best friend and roommate Nate’s (Josh Zuckerman) recently seperated mother (Krista Allen). Silverman is Nate’s dad and still thinks he has a chance of getting his wife back. Like I said, there is nothing else like it on television.
Even though it has been over 2 months since Hart of Dixie’s sad fate was made official, the show’s star Rachel Bilson is breaking her silence about the show’s cancellation today. She posted a photo on Twitter from the set and said that neither her nor her pregnancy are at fault for the show’s end. She didn’t say what was the cause, but again it wasn’t her.
Fans of the show can blame the fact they brought on a new love interest for Zoe the third season. The show was based on her triangle with Wade and George. Once they took that away, they took away the hart, I mean heart, from the show.
I would’ve watched a 5th season, I just wish it was mostly about AB and George. They quickly became my favorites with the sweet love affair.
Why do you think the show was given the axe by The CW?
Penn & Teller: Fool Us are back on The CW tonight at 8p and you don’t want to miss the season premiere. It’s always fun to watch a good magic act, but how about four of them. That’s what you get to do as legendary magicians Penn & Teller try to figure out how those contestants did their acts. If they figure it out, the magician goes home empty handed. If they are fooled, then they get to perform as the opening act for the duo in Vegas. A dream come true for any magician.
On tonight’s season premiere, a man does a bit that Penn & Teller performed on Conan. Even though they weren’t fooled, they were very impressed with him. The next person’s act is done with just an iPad and it doesn’t byte. Next up, is Handsome Jack. He is a former model, whose prize is saved by the instant replay. Finally, the last act is married couple, and you will have to tune to see in if Penn & Teller say I do or they want a divorce to them.
If you like magic, then you are going to love this show. Especially since Penn & Teller close out each episode with a trick of their own.
The CW announced when their shows will be back in the fall and we will have to wait until October until we find out what happens next on our favorite shows. Will the Zombie cure work on iZombie? What happens next after that oh sh!t moment on Supernatural? Can The Vampire Diaries survive with Nina Dobrev? And most importantly will Jane get her baby back on Jane the Virgin? To get those answers, we will have to wait over 5 months to find out and that seems way too long to wait.
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6
8:00-9:00pm THE FLASH (Season Premiere)
9:00-10:00pm IZOMBIE (Season Premiere)
