Debra Messing might have broken up with her boyfriend, but NBC isn’t ready to break up with her show The Mysteries of Laura just yet. The network announced today that they picked up the show for a full season. The news really isn’t a surprise because the police dramedy has been consistent in the ratings since its debut. The one thing that has changed since the premiere, is just how much better the show gets with each episode. To me, the humor of this show is what separates it from all the other ones on television.
So with TMOL getting picked up today, Scorpion, NCIS: NOLA, Stalker and Madam Secretary getting picked up by CBS yesterday, The CW’s Jane the Virgin and The Flash getting the news last week and Fox’s Gotham and ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder the first ones to get the bottom nine, that leaves NBC’s Constantine, Fox’s Red Band Society and Gracepoint, and ABC’s Forever as the only dramas that have aired waiting to find out their fate. I am hoping that ABC gives us some good news tomorrow when it comes to Forever, why are they waiting forever to order a full season from this show?
Constantine’s story debuts on NBC tonight at 10p and you want to see this dark comic book come to life. Constantine (Matt Ryan) is an exorcist and one of last exorcisms, damned a young girl to hell. He hasn’t gotten over that, so he committed himself to rid himself of the power. Even though, he is trying to get away from it all, the spirits still find him. So now he is back at work along with his friend, Chas (Charles Halford), who doesn’t know how to die and a guardian angel (Harold Perrineau).
Constantine is unlike the other dramas that started out as comic books on television and because of that is the perfect way to end your week. So tune in tonight and every Friday at 10p to see demonic world be part of ours.
Krysten Ritter was supposed to come back to TV in the midseason replacement Mission Control, but according to Entertainment Weekly NBC cancelled it today before it even saw the light of television. The Bitch from Apt 23 was going to play “the head engineer who leads the Apollo team at Mission Control at the NASA Manned Space Center” in the sitcom, but now it won’t take off. EW says that after Michael Rosenbaum left, they had problems recasting the roll.
When it comes to the show, it doesn’t like anything I would want to watch. So it sounds like a smart decision on their part.
Hopefully this bad news is good for their struggling sitcoms. I really hope that the NBC sticks with A to Z because it has the potential to be the best RomCom sitcom to ever grace our TV sets.
Tonight at 9p on NBC’s Marry Me, Annie (Casey Wilson) and Jake (Ken Marino) are going to get engaged and the show has ties to the actress’ real life.
David Caspe created tonight’s sitcom and he met Wilson on their past show, Happy Endings. Back when they were still dating, Caspe started pitching this show around. Even though they were not engaged at the time, he knew he was getting ready to pop the question. So he explained at the NBC TCA Summer Press Tour Day, “In an attempt to sell the show, because I care much more about money than personal relationships, all my pitches were basically saying like what’s great about this show is that it’s going to mirror my actual life because I’m going to be proposing very soon.” Then he added, “And then I swore all the presidents of all the networks to secrecy. So technically, Bob Greenblatt and Jen Salke (NBC Executives), they all knew I was going to propose before Casey did or any of her family.”
So did Casey say yes in real life? She did and on May 25, 2014 they became Mr & Mrs Caspe. Does Annie say yes to Jake? We will have to tune in every Tuesday at 9p to find out.
Katherine Heigl Intstagrammed this photo of herself bloodied and battered, and yet she has a big smile on her face. So is that the way the cast of her new NBC show is letting her know how they feel about her? No, just the writers writing something for her character on State of Affairs where she plays CIA Agent. Therefore, in a way, it’s like the writers are letting her know how they feel about her.
Want to see the scene that caused her to look like that, then mark your calendars to start recording the drama on November 17th to find out.
NBC sent out photos of Paul Ruebens on The Blacklist this Monday at 10p and at first glance I thought it was Howard Wolowitz. Seriously, doesn’t Pee Wee Herman look just like a clone of The Big Bang Theory character? Did Sheldon clone his “friend”? What’s the dealio?
I will tell you one thing if we ever get to meet Wolowitz’s dad, then Ruebens would be perfect for the role.
Tonight at 10p we get a sneak peek at The Mysteries of Laura, and you don’t want to miss this fun cop drama.
Laura (Debra Messing) is a top notch unconventional NYC homicide detective. That is a tough enough job for anyone. Then throw in the fact that her childish husband, Jake (Josh Lucas) cheated on her, so she kicked him out but he doesn’t realize it isn’t over between them. Finally, she has twin toddler boys who are most likely the spawn of the devil. They have just been kicked out of an elite pre-K and no other school wants to take them in. Her soon-to-be-ex is no help when it comes to finding them a new school. And to make matters worse, she has to solve a high profile murder in Westchester. With all of that on her plate, how is she going to do it all? She is supermom or close to it.
Janina Gavankar, who plays the by-the-book homicide detective Meredith Bose, described this show as being like Columbo and I think that is an accurate description. Laura has that charm and flare about her, even down to the raincoat.
The Mysteries of Laura is lighter than the average crime of the week shows and because of that, it has a much broader appeal. So if you like procedurals but want to laugh, then this is the show for you.
The show moves to its regular time slot of 8p starting next Wednesday.
We know that the judges on reality shows fight over contestants, but it looks like Mel B and Heidi Klum are taking it to a whole new level. So are things really scary between the two spicy ladies? Nope, they are just having some fun during the very tense finals on the competition series.
To see who wins it all, tune into NBC tonight at 8p.
Chris Pratt might’ve played a baseball played on the big screen, but that doesn’t mean he knows how to play the game. This was evident on Wednesday when he threw the first pitch at the Chicago Cubs game. He threw a cutter that was just out of the catcher’s reach.
But as bad as it was, it was still better than whatever 50 Cent did earlier in the season.
But then again it is Chris Pratt, even if he strikes out, it looks as though he hit a home run.
