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.

Things not looking good for Brave and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow
November 16th, 2017 under NBC, The CW. [ Comments: none ]

NBC announced today that we will be saying goodbye to This Is Us’ second season on March 13th. On that night Rise, the high school musical, will debut at 10p. The next week, it will take over This Is Us’ timeslot.

They also announced that Good Girls will be taking over Brave’s timeslot starting on February 26th. Which sounds like the military drama is not getting the back 9 which pretty much means it is cancelled.

Talking about military dramas, still no word on The CW’s Valor which looks like it too will not get the back 9 unlike Dynasty which surprisingly did. Last night’s episode proved that nighttime soap did not deserve a full season pickup.

But The CW still has a lot of shows to slot like iZombie, The 100, The Original and Life Sentence. One show that does not have to wait to find out when it will premiere is Black Lightning. That show will take over DC’s Legends of Tomorrow timeslot of Tuesday’s at 9p. They also said LoT will be back sometime in February on a new night, but they do not know when. Let’s be honest losing Victor Garber and Wentworth Miller at the end of the season, sign’s the show’s death certificate. I say hold the remaining episodes for the summer and let the other dramas air instead.

Here is when their shows will be back after holiday hiatus. Valor is back with original episodes on Monday, January. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend returns with new episodes on Friday, January 5. Supergirl is brand new starting Monday, January 15. Riverdale and Dynasty are back with original episodes Wednesday, January 17. Supernatural and Arrow will make their January premieres Thursday, January 18. Jane The Virgin comes back with new episodes Friday, January 26. Both Valor and Crazy only have 13 episode seasons, so it is logical that two of the five unslotted show will take over their timeslots.

Confusing? Thankfully, we know have DVRs, OnDemand and apps to help us when we miss an episode or two.


The fourth new show to get a full season pick up is…
November 8th, 2017 under The CW. [ Comments: none ]

Yesterday, my friend asked me is Dynasty dead? I told him, you never know with The CW. I mean it is doing poorly in the ratings. It go no buzz after the May announcement. Heck, it does not even get hate viewing feedback, which it totally should. Therefore, its demise seemed logical. Well to most people, and none of those people seem to work at The CW. That’s because the network gave it a full season order. Which means people like me who do not know why they are watching because it is so painfully bad, will be wondering for a few months why it is still on the air and when will it be out of our misery.

The only conclusion I can come to is now that Victor Garber and Wentworth Miller are leaving DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, that is show is over. Thus, CW is looking for its replacement. Although I think Lucy Hale’s new show Life Sentence has a better chance.

Are you also suffering through Dynasty like me and my friend?


The Originals is ending next season
July 20th, 2017 under The CW. [ Comments: none ]

A year after it was announced that The Vampire Diaries was ending its run, Executive Producer Julie Plec announced that next season of The Originals will be its last. While it is sad to see a show go, at least they had 5 seasons which is a lot more than many other shows. Plus, they have a whole season to prep for the end.

Even though The Originals is not immortal like its character, The CW drama will live on in our hearts forever.

Do you feel like someone put a stake through your heart over the cancellation or have you wanted to send this show off into the sunlight for a long time?
