NBC finds a second season for Found and The Irrational
November 29th, 2023 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

NBC was the only network who was smart enough to have live-action scripted series air in the fall. And it is paying for those freshman dramas.

That is because they announced today that they are picking up Found and Irrational for a second season.

“These shows are a testament to the incredibly passionate work of our showrunners Nkechi Okoro Carroll (‘Found’) and Arika Lisanne Mittman (‘The Irrational’), both of whom have executed their visions flawlessly,” said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Entertainment. “A huge thank you to the talented cast, producers and crews for their tireless commitment and dedication, which has clearly paid off with audiences making these series must-see television on both NBC and next day on Peacock.”

Congrats to both shows.


BTWF: Brent Spiner on To Tell the Truth
November 29th, 2023 under Before They Were Famous, Star Trek. [ Comments: none ]

Before we knew him as Brent Spiner on Star Trek: The Next Generation, he went by Brent Mintz on To Tell the Truth. I never would’ve recognized Data when he was 23 on that 1972 episode.


The Roman Agency prepares to rescue Susan on SurrealEstate
November 29th, 2023 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 10p on Syfy’s SurrealEstate, The Roman Agency bands together to save one of their own from the house from Hell.

Earlier this season, Susan (Sarah Levy) got pissed off at her co-workers at The Roman Agency, so she said she was taking an extended break and retreated to her new home. However, her home decided to hold her captive and won’t let her go.

Last week, Zooey (Savannah Basley) went to the house and tried to rescue her friend. But the house literally spit her out. But not before beating her up.

Therefore, Luke (Tim Rozon), new dad Phil (Adam Korson), August (Maurice Dean Wint), Zooey, and new employee Lomax (Elena Juatco) are preparing to take on the house and get their friend back.

Before they do, Lomax is trying to sell a house. For most agencies, it is an easy task. But this is the Roman Agency. The dead husband is trying to kill his widow’s new husband. So Lomax calls in Luke to help her exercise the first husband so that she can get her profit from the sale. Will the wife have two dead husbands before the house goes on the market?

All of this leads to a shocking final scene that sets up next week’s episode.

But I have said too much. What I will say to you is that you should be watching this series. It is unlike anything else on television. Not only because of the premise. But also because of how enjoyable it is! I don’t know what I like better, the story or the cast. Although, why can’t I love both equally? Watch SurrealEstate and tell me why you love it as much as I do.


Alfonso Ribeiro talks about yesterday’s shocking DWTS elimination
November 29th, 2023 under Alfonso Ribeiro, Dancing with the Stars. [ Comments: none ]

Yesterday was the semifinals of Dancing with the Stars. And we were expecting the five remaining contestants to go down to four at the end of the show. However, Alfonso Ribeiro revealed in the final moments of the episode that no one was going home and that Alyson Hannigan, Ariana Madix, Xochitl Gomez, Charity Lawson, and (my favorite) Jason Mraz will all be competing in the finals on Tuesday.

If you are a conspiracy theorist, then you would assume that they are doing this because Alyson Hannigan was not the one who was eliminated, and the show’s producers didn’t want to have the finale without the person who was.

You see, Hannigan was the only one who did not get a perfect score for at least one of her dances yesterday. She is also the weakest one of the five. So it would make sense that she would be the one that should have been sent home.

But our theory was wrong. Or at least that is what Ribeiro said on The Talk today. “I felt really bad for Xochitl [Gomez] and Ariana Madix because I knew this was happening for a full week.” He added, “We’re taking over all of primetime for ABC next Tuesday night. So, it’s going to be a super-filled show, and so having five couples is fantastic.”

So, who does the former winner think will win? “They are all so deserving. And I think this season is slightly different than a lot of seasons.” Then he explained in the past, “You’ve got people, and it’s like that’s your winner. Everyone else is playing to see where they finish. Right now, truly, I believe, for many different reasons, any one of them can win. Right, for different reasons. And so, it is really hard when you are seeing them, and you are like, well, who’s got this? Well, they all deserve the opportunity to be there.”

So why should we tune in because yesterday feels like a wash? Ribeiro said that this week’s votes and scores will be calculated with next week’s totals.

And at this point, Gomez is in first place, and Hannigan is in last, with just nine points separating them.

Who do you think will bring home the Len Goodman Mirrorball Trophy? Tell me in the comments.


CBS is ending their last Chuck Lorre sitcom
November 29th, 2023 under Chuck Lorre. [ Comments: none ]

For the last 20 years, CBS has had at least one Chuck Lorre sitcom on their schedule. But it looks like they are ending that funny tradition because today they announced that they are saying goodbye to Bob Hearts Abishola.

“We are so proud to call BOB ♥ ABISHOLA a CBS comedy as it helped establish a new generation of programming at the Network,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment. “This series expertly showcased a family love story and workplace comedy about the immigrant experience with heartfelt humor and emotion while also authentically portraying Nigerian culture. It’s a testament to the incomparable Chuck Lorre, the amazing creative team led by Al Higgins, Gina Yashere and Matt Ross, and the talents of Billy Gardell, Folake Olowofoyeku and the entire cast for making this show and its characters come to life and resonate with viewers. We plan to celebrate it this spring and give fans the most amazing episodes to remember it by.”

This news comes just two weeks after CBS revealed that Lorre’s other sitcom, Young Sheldon, the prequel to The Big Bang Theory, will be saying goodbye in May.

Can CBS survive without a Chuck Lorre sitcom? I wish I could say that Ghosts and The Neighborhood are strong enough to carry the network. But I can’t.

So, if I were the execs, I would be sending a Brinks truck to Lorre’s house and say to him what can we do to continue your legacy with our network! Because we know that C in CBS stands for Chuck Lorre.

Bon Hearts Abishola’s fifth season premieres on February 12th, and the series finale will air on May 13th.

Are you as sad as I am that the sitcom is ending? Tell me in the comments.
