The CW is going to 6 days a week next season!
February 14th, 2018 under The CW. [ Comments: none ]

Ever since we got to know mommy UPN and daddy The WB, we only saw them 5 days a week. Then they got together and their child The CW took over for them. Now, that he is 12 years old, we are going to get to watch him 6 days a week in the fall.

Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW said, “By expanding to six nights, The CW is now able to give our fans even more of the series they’re so passionate about. Broadcasting remains the foundation of our multi-platform approach to bringing our programming to viewers.” iZombie and Crazy Ex Girlfriend better be two of the shows that will be back next year since they have 2 extra hours of programming. Although, they might add a 6th DC Comics show because they can never have enough.


Shannen Doherty asks the obvious reboot question
January 29th, 2018 under Shannen Doherty, The CW. [ Comments: none ]

Last week, The CW announced that they ordered a pilot for a Charmed reboot and one of the stars took to Twitter to express her displeasure for it. Holly Marie Combs Tweeted, “While some may not get why I take issue with the network that didn’t want to renew Charmed 12 years ago ‘reimagining’ it now let me just say I understand it perfectly. Also this kinda stuff given all that Rose and Alyssa have done lately…um no. Just No.”

Then her co-star and TV sister asked a very obvious question that many of us pondered. Shannen Doherty wrote, “So curious… if it was not a reboot and just was a show about sisters and family dynamics with super natural powers…. thoughts?”

Why do networks insist on calling a show a reboot when the only thing it has in common with the original is the names of the characters are the same. Would we like Dynasty more if they just made a show about spoiled rich people? How about MacGyver, well I never got the passed the pilot. And so on. Why not just make a show with kind of the same premise and give everyone new names? I don’t know about you, but I am sick of reboots that have nothing with the original.

There is a huge difference between reimagining a show and going way off the rails of one. How do you feel about reboots that have nothing to do with the original?

And don’t get me started on the trend of turning big screen movies into television shows.


When will iZombie and The CW’s midseason shows debut?
January 7th, 2018 under iZombie, The CW. [ Comments: none ]

If you are like me, then you have been dying to know when iZombie will be back. Well it is time to come out of your caskets and feed on some brains because the Zombie procedural will be back on its new night February 26th. Not only did The CW announce when that show will be back, they also announced when Life Sentence, The Originals and The 100 will also be premiering.

As we know Black Lighting, their newest superhero drama, debuts next Tuesday at 9p after The Flash. Then on February 26th, iZombie moves to Mondays at 9p after DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. On March 7th, the heartwarming drama Life Sentence with Lucy Hale premieres. In April on the 20th, Dynasty is banished to Friday at 8p followed by the season premiere of The Originals’ final season. Jane the Virgin concludes its fourth season the week beforehand. Finally, on the 24th of April, The 100 is back on Earth for another season.

Can Nicolette Sheridan save Dynasty 2.0?
November 28th, 2017 under The CW. [ Comments: none ]

When The CW announced that they were remaking Dynasty people were curious what they were going to do with the show, and then the interest stopped once it aired. It wasn’t as cheesy as the original and the changes they made for the characters have not worked. Don’t get me started on the actress who plays Cristal. Basically, it is not that good and it is not doing well in the ratings. Yet it got a full season pick up.

What to do? Bring in Heather Locklear like they did with Spin City and both Melrose Places? She is, sorry to say, too old for this younger version of the series. Therefore, they are going for the next blonde bitch on the list to play Alexis Carrington and they got Nicolette Sheridan. Can the Paper Doll save the show? We shall see, but I will not hold my breath. Although it would be nice if the Desperate Housewife can breath life in to the nighttime soap that is barely watchable. And can I say that because I watch.


When will your Fox shows be back and when will your CW shows go on break
November 21st, 2017 under Fox, The CW. [ Comments: none ]

2017 is coming to an end and that means that broadcast shows will be going on a winter hiatus. Therefore, we will not get be getting new episodes until 2018 soon.

Today, Fox announced their Winter schedule and not all your shows will be back in the New Year. The Exorcist and The Orville all air the season finales in December, and as of now only one will be back next season. While Seth MacFarlane’s Syfy drama will be back, I do not think the other two will be. That is unless The Gifted gets a major rework. It stated off great, but it went to barely watchable in a few episodes. Why can’t Marvel shows succeed on broadcast TV?

Then there is Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Gotham, Empire and Star that will all take a longer break and return later on in the season. Maybe by then, they will also slot the final season of New Girl.

Finally, it is time for the new shows. LA to Vegas, which is my favorite new comedy of the season, debuts on January 2nd. It is perfectly paired with The Mick but both shows should air in the 8p hour instead of after Lethal Weapon. The Resident, a medical drama, is paired with Lucifer and I do not agree with that decision. I want Luci with The X-Files. What is really interesting is that Fox has nothing scheduled for Fridays at 9p.

That is Fox, The CW’s show will go on break starting on December 4th except for Valor, Riverdale and Dynasty that will have the midseason finales the following week.
