ABC announced their schedule for the fall, and it looks like they will be in trouble again. Mondays are strong. On Tuesdays, I think Roseanne will come crashing down to earth with its ratings. Meaning the other shows will take a hit. The Kids Are All Right sounds awful, which will bring down Black-ish and Splitting Up Together. I am also not loving The Rookie. Sorry Nathan Fillion, I think you are better than this. Wednesdays start off OK, but the two new shows don’t sound good. Thursdays are Shonda’s nights. I cannot complain about Fresh Off the Boat and Speechless being on Friday because at least they are coming back. Sundays will be interesting. It is throw a whole bunch of reality togther and see if it works. No rhyme or reason.

What is crazy is they are holding Schooled, The Goldbergs’ spinoff, until midseason. That has already proven to be a sucess. For the People moves to Thursday after Murder ends it season. Agents of SHIELD will not be back until next summer. If networks were more willing to cancel shows before airing all the episodes ordered, I bet you most of their new shows would be gone by November sweeps.

Time to start looking for a new head because it is going to be another bad season for them. What do you think?

Lots of not so Great News today for the evil networks
May 11th, 2018 under ABC, Fox, NBC, The CW. [ Comments: none ]


Fox is doing a big FU to his fans. Yesterday, they cancelled The Last Man on Earth, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Mick. Today, they followed it up by doing the same to Lucifer and Exorcist. I could care less about the latter, but the former really hurts. It was a thrilling show with a great ensemble cast that played off each other well. To top it off, the show’s EP Joe Henderson wrote, “We created a season finale with a huge cliffhanger so that there was no way Fox could cancel us. Instead, we’re going to frustrate the hell out of you fans. I’m so sorry for that. #Lucifer.” I think of all of the shows this is the one that has the best chances of getting picked up by someone else. On a positive note, they revived Last Man Standing.

The CW was very nice to me today because they picked up iZombie for a fifth season. Which completes all of their renewals and cancellations. CBS, on the other hand, did not pick up or cancel anything today.

Over NBC they cancelled the heartfelt Rise that they did not do enough to promote. They also gave bad news to Great News. They were also not brave enough to renew Brave.

ABC like every year goes cancelling crazy because I do not think they know what they are doing. They picked up Speechless, Black-ish, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, Splitting Up Together, For the People, Station 19 and How to Get Away Murder for another season. But they cancelled Designated Survivor, Deception, The Crossing, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, The Inhumans, Quantico and Alex, Inc. Basically, they cancelled all the dramas that are not produced by Shonda Rhymes. What type of world do we live in that the fake president gets impeached before the real one? Kiefer Sutherland is a much better president than the one we have now.

As my DVR has a huge party, I am crying tears for all the shows I lost today. Doing a Marlon Brando, “Stella” scream but replacing it with all the shows I lost. And there were a lot.

Louis is the bad boy on Suits, as Designated Survivor is set for impeachment
April 18th, 2018 under ABC, Suits. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight at 9p on USA Network, it has been the moment we have been waiting for since the first episode of Suits. Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) becomes the bad boy that he has been suppressing his whole life. The episode starts off with Sheila’s (Rachael Harris) fiance’ confronting him and Louis does everything in his power not tell him that he has been having an affair with the woman he is about to marry. When he gets back to his office Katrina (Amanda Schull) tells him she has a plan to get back at him. A lawsuit that will bring his rival down to size. Will he get his revenge on the man that is about the marry the woman he loves?

While he is dealing with that, Donna (Sarah Rafferty) has her own problems. The man who owns the building they rent their offices wants to kick them out. She does not want to tell Harvey (Gabriel Macht) because he is still getting over their kiss, so she asks Rachel (Meghan Markle) to help her save their firm’s offices. Will they be able to do it?

If that is not enough the judge, who saved Mike’s (Patrick J Adams) butt, asks him to save her butt. He feels he has no choice, even though the stakes are high if he does it. He gets Harvey to help him out and the case is much harder than either one expected.

All of this leads into next week’s 2-hour season finale where we say goodbye to the future Mrs. Prince Harry and her TV husband. At least we are assuming Rachel and Mike are getting married.

Then at 10p but over on ABC, Michael J Fox joins Designated Survivor for the rest of the season. When President Kirkman’s (Kiefer Sutherland) psychiatrist’s tapes of POTUS’s sessions are accidentally released to the public, the cabinet holds a meeting to impeach him. They feel that he is not mentally fit to stay in office because he is dealing with PTSD from being the designated survivor and suddenly losing his wife in a car crash. They feel they have the case for the 25th amendment, so they hired the best lawyer (Fox) to plead it. While Fox is defending them, Kirkman is defending himself to the American people. Will the people vote to keep him in office or will the cabinet get their way?

All I can say is when is life going to imitate art already?

The Crossing is the must watch Sci Fi show of the season!
April 2nd, 2018 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]


ABC has needed a good Sci-Fi show for a while now and The Crossing is it. Tonight at 10p, you will see why I love it so much.

Sheriff Jude Ellis (Steve Zahn) has been informed that a body washed up in his small town and they want him to look into the mysterious person. When he gets there, he discovers it is a little girl, Leah (Bailey Skodje), and he breathes life into her lifeless body. Just when he thinks he has saved the day, his deputy, Nestor Rosario (Rick Gomez), tells him to look. That is because there are hundreds of bodies floating in the water towards them.

Of the nearly 500 bodies, 47 of them survived and they have a secret. They are from over 150 years in future and they are here to prevent their future. A future full of war and disease. If that is not hard enough to believe, then how about they are not first people to come from their time to our time. How have the past visitors embedded themselves into our time?

Then there are some key questions like why are they here? Why now? Why this place? What do they want? How bad is their future? Those questions will be answered in future episodes as they try to assimilate into our time. Well, as much as they can because Department of Homeland Security is forcing them to live in a camp for our protection and to study them.

Good thing not all of them were captured. Reece (Natalie Martinez) was able to get away from the others. The only problem is her daughter, Leah, was captured with the rest of them and she wants her back. She will work with the sheriff to find her daughter since the DHS has taken over the investigation of the mysterious people. During their search, she will reveal how much more evolved they are in the future as compared to now.

There are so many questions left to be answered. If you love a good Sci-Fi thriller, then you are going to love this show as much as I do. It is a slow suspenseful mystery, that leaves you on the edge of your seat. Something all of us crave every now and again.

Alex, Inc’s Elisha Henig is going to be a huge star
March 28th, 2018 under ABC, Zach Braff. [ Comments: none ]


Alex, Inc begins broadcasting on ABC tonight at 8:30p and you are going to be podcasting about this show tomorrow.

Alex (Zach Braff) has the perfect job at a radio station, a beautiful wife (Tiya Sircar), 2 great kids Ben (Elisha Henig) and Soraya (Audyssie James), so you could say he is it all. One day, he realizes his job is not for him, so he quits. He decides to start his own podcast company with his cousin Eddie (Michael Imperioli) and his co-worker Diedre (Hillary Anne Matthews) who has a crush on him.

Now that he has a staff, all he needs is a place to work with them. Eddie finds the some space in a nerd factory with a bunch of other people who also think they have the next best thing. Staff down, office found; now he needs to find someone to invest in his company. That will be harder than he thought. Besides finding an investor, he needs to come up with a theme for his show. What is he going to talk about? Then when he figures that out, what is he going to say?

It sounded like a good idea when he decided to start a podcast, now he is not so sure. One of the hardest parts about the change is that he gets to spend less time with his family. Ronni is a busy lawyer and she has let Alex care of the kids. Now that he is working on his own, he has less time to do that. She is going to have to pick up some of the slack and she is not the best at this mothering thing. Their son Ben marches to the beat of his own drum and he is OK with that. For example on the season premiere, he decides to a magic trick for the school talent show. Sorry, but magic is rarely cool, can he change his classes opinion on that? Soraya is your typical second child who has seen it all, yet she has barely been on the planet. All in all, this cast have such great chemistry together, you would think they are a real family. Actually, all of the actors on this show play off of each other so well, you would think that have been working together for ages. You can tell they all have a genuine love for their costars.

That is just one of the many reasons for you to fall in love with this show. Actually, everything about it makes you fall in love with it. It has so much heart and humor, that it will make your hump days brighter.

Talking about bright, Elisha Henig’s future is so bright he needs to wear shades. To read my interview with him, click here!
