CMT revives Wife Swap
March 9th, 2018 under CMT. [ Comments: none ]

It has been 8 years since Wife Swap (the non-celebrity edition) aired on ABC, and CMT thought now is a good time to bring it back. Which I cannot argue with because it an interesting social experiment that swaps moms from different lifestyles and sends them to a whole new family for a week.

In a time when America is more divided than it has been in several generations, maybe a show like this can help bring us together.

February 23rd, 2018 under CMT. [ Comments: none ]

Nashville has had quite a run on two different networks and on July 26th the curtain goes down forever on this show. Before the fat lady sings, we get 8 new episodes and two new characters on the CMT drama that returns on June 7th. Ronny Cox will play Deacon’s recently reformed alcoholic dad and Mia Maestro is playing Rosa a dedicated follower of Darius’ (Josh Stamberg) Movement.

Will Avery and Juliette get their fairy tale ending? Will Will Lexington survive his steroids overdose? Will Deacon every find happiness? Will Daphne and Maddie have successful careers as singers and stop being so whiny? Will Scarlett find love? Will Reina James make one last appearance on the show? We will have to tune in in three months to find out and we will be there until that final note is sung.


Nashville is singing another swan song!
November 17th, 2017 under CMT. [ Comments: none ]

Hey Nashies, remember how upset you were when ABC cancelled Nashville on a cliffhanger at the end of season 4? Then you were excited that CMT picked it up for more episodes, so you were able find out if Juliette Barnes survived the plane crash. Well, the network announced today that the musical drama’s 6th season will be its last, so you have time to prepare to say goodbye. The final episodes begin airing on January 4th.

While I am sad to see the show go, I am thankful we had two more seasons to enjoy it.


Billy Gardell reveals that CMT cancelled Sun Records
August 19th, 2017 under CMT. [ Comments: none ]

If you are like me, then you really enjoyed CMT’s Sun Records that told the story of the record label that launched the musical careers of Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis. So much so, you were hoping for a second season. Well we are not getting one because Billy Gardell, who played the Colonel, Tweeted, “Sorry to say no season 2, they kept it a mini series, thank you for watching!”

While the show wrapped its run with a satisfying ending, it did leave room for more. I am sad we are not getting more. I guess that is the price for living with Nashville.


Still the King is still the King, American Ripper is killer and The Bold Type is bold!
July 11th, 2017 under CMT, Freeform, History Channel. [ Comments: none ]

Don’t break my achy breaky heart, by not checking out the back-to-back episodes for the season 2 premiere of Still the King tonight at 10p on CMT. How many shows can you say top themselves during their sophomore season? Not that many and this show is one of the few that can. I do not know how this show found a way to make itself even wilder and wackier than it was last year, but they did.

On tonight’s season premiere, one hit wonder Vernon (Billy Ray Cyrus) is just out of prison and he moves in with his recently reunited baby mama Debbie Lynn (Joey Lauren Adams) and their teenage daughter Charlotte (Madison Iseman). Debbie Lynn just lost her lover Ronnie (Jon Sewell) in a boat explosion. To make matters worse for her, she is pregnant and does not know who the daddy is?

Vernon decides he is ready to step up and be the father he never was to Charlotte, who he did not know about. Only problem is Ronnie is not dead and now the two men are trying to be the better father to be.

Ronnie gets a job while Vernon returns to his musical roots. Meanwhile, it is Debbie Lynn who has the toughest of all, putting up with these two man children.

If you did not watch the first season of Still the King, it is OK. In fact, I want you enjoy this show as much as I am, and I just watch it live starting tonight and every Tuesday at 10p. You can binge the first season later, which will probably start at 11p tonight and you will pull all nighter.

There is nothing else like Still the King on television. It honestly a crazy horseback ride that you do not want to get off. Seriously the show is just pure fun. We need more shows like it on television and Cyrus is brilliant in this role.

Once again, I am begging you to watch because this truly is the best show on television this Summer and we need more episodes that the 13 that they ordered.

Ever since I was a kid, I have been obsessed with Jack Ripper. I always thought of him as a British serial killer, but tonight at 10p, American Ripper on History Channel questions if America’s first known serial killer H.H.Holmes and the Ripper are the same person.

His great-great grandson Jeff Mudgett believes his relative might not only be the infamous Chicago serial killer, but also Jack the Ripper. Tonight, he recruits former CIA. operative Amaryllis Fox to help him find out if it might true. They will follow his relative’s footsteps to see if there might be evidence that confirms what they are thinking. They will literally try to dig up the truth and from that we might finally know who Jack the Ripper is.

Could one of the biggest mysteries of our time finally be solved? It would explain how the Ripper was able to vanish without a trace. He returned to America and lived the rest of his killing around 200 people.

I know I for one am on this 8-part journey to find out what they find out. I want to know the truth. Even if they don’t prove the connection, it still intrigues me that 125 years later we still want to know who killed some prostitutes in London.

Finally at 9p, but on Freeform is the new page turning show The Bold Type. The drama follows three Millennials who work for the female empowering magazine Scarlett.

Jane (Katie Stevens) has just been promoted to writer and she is having a problem finding her voice. Her friend Kat (Aisha Dee) is the mag’s social media manager and she needs to learn when to shut up. Finally, there is there is their friend Sutton (Meghann Fahy) who is an assistant to one of the editors. She has held that job for four years and like her friends she wants a promotion. Something her secret boyfriend who works for the magazine might be able to help her do.

Each week as they are assigned a new task, they will each learn something new about themselves. Thankfully, they have each other to help them through each lesson. Because without friends, who are you?

The Bold Type is a different type of drama for the network and like most of their shows, you will quickly find yourself addicted to every nuance by the end of tonight’s 2-hour season premiere.
