CBS pulls the plug on Code Black
May 24th, 2018 under CBS, Rob Lowe. [ Comments: 1 ]

Michael Saltzman broke the sad news that his show Code Black will not be back next season on CBS. He wrote, “Dear #CodeBlack fans, the sad news came today that we were cancelled. It’s been a true joy to make this show and watch your response every week. Thank you for all of your passion. Truly, our best episodes have yet to air. We hope you’ll watch and enjoy them. We made them for you.”

I have seen the remaining episodes and he is not overexaggerating how good those episodes truly are. Will fans be upset with the, now, series finale? He addressed that and said, “We always suspected this would be the last season. We wrote it to end that way.” Again, having seen that episode, I think fans will be very satisfied with the ending.

I am sad to see this medical drama go because it was a different take than the other shows like it. Because of that, it was a fast-paced enjoyable hour of television. Plus, it had a really great cast that includes Marcia Gay Harden, Luis Guzman, Ben Hollingsworth and Rob Lowe. I wish CBS would have kept it around as a summer show, but at least we have the remaining episodes that air Wednesdays at 10p.


CBS’s Fall Schedule Is…

7:00-8:00 PM 60 MINUTES

To be honest I don’t know what to make of CBS’s lineup. I think they should have had Murphy Brown on Mondays and made it revival Monday with Magnum PI. Like most people, I believe no mustache, no watch. It is interesting that Bull moved to Mondays, I thought it would go to Sundays. I still think they should do an all NCIS Tuesday, but that is me. I am curious how being on CBS is going to change Dick Wolf’s vision with FBI. The rest is the same, and that works for them. So why change it?

Man with a Plan, Life in Pieces, Elementary and Instinct all move to midseason. Something tells me the comedies will be back sooner rather than later.

Jermaine Fowler’s sweet message to the fans about Superior Donuts
May 14th, 2018 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]

On Saturday, CBS made the mistake of cancelling Superior Donuts, and today the show’s star and creator, Jermaine Fowler, posted a message to the fans.

Instead of being upset about the cancellation, he is grateful he was able to do the show for two seasons. He also wanted to thank us for watching. And most importantly, he wants us to continue having conversations like the ones that the show made us have.

That is what made this sitcom so great. They had a diverse cast and because of that, they were able to tackle issues from all points of views. It was not one-sided, but several different sides of the issues. I am going to miss that. But I won’t miss craving a donut every time I watched it. That was just cruel. But other than that, it was a great show that you missed out on.

Back to Fowler, he is turning 30 on Wednesday. Think about that. He got a show on the air by the time he was 28 years old. What were you doing at 28? I am sure this will not be the last time we hear from him. Hopefully, he will be part of another show soon. Maybe Jerrod Carmichael will hire him to join Rel as Lil Rel Howery’s friend? That will make that show a bigger powerhouse than it already is.


Those Criminal Minds at CBS are no longer eating Superior Donuts
May 12th, 2018 under CBS, Fox, NBC. [ Comments: none ]

The morning started off nicely because Fox renewed Family Guy and Bob’s Burgers, but then came CBS. They cancelled Superior Donuts, which was a good comedy that took on taboo topics, and showed both sides of those issues responsibly. They also pulled the plug on Scorpion, I think the season finale twist did them in. That and the ratings, but I will go with the former.

It wasn’t only bad news from the Eye, they are sticking with Criminal Minds, Man Without a Plan, Instinct and Life in Pieces. Who watches those shows?

NBC also revealed that they are doing an all-star version of America’s Got Talent for the winter. NBC also picked up Blacklist for a season 6.

Over at CBS, they are sticking with Elementary for another season. But they are not sticking with 9JKL, Kevin Can Wait, Living Biblically and Wisdom of the Crowd.


Superior Donuts and ICE don’t mix, Good Girls takes it back to the start
April 30th, 2018 under CBS, NBC. [ Comments: none ]

I know a lot of people look at Roseanne as the most politically conscience show on television, but they are wrong. That title belongs to Superior Donuts. Tonight at 9p on CBS, the show takes on ICE.

Randy (Katey Sagal) tells everyone that she is going to have work with ICE agents, but she really does not want to. That is when everyone in the shop starts to debate the topic. Everyone has a different opinion on the matter. No one more than Sofia (Diane Guerrero). Everyone thinks she might be here illegally, so they want to figure out how to protect her. Franco (Jermaine Fowler) comes up with a plan to keep her safe and it involves the donut shop. The only thing is that they cannot tell Arthur (Judd Hirsch) about it. Will they be able to hide them from Arthur and Randy?

What makes Superior Donuts so great is that they take on every side of story and ones you never figured on. Tonight, they show how the liberal, an immigrant, an old guy set in his ways, a cop who has to work with ICE and someone who illegal immigration is close to, all deal with the politically charged topic. By the end of the half hour, you will have a whole new outlook on the issue than you did before. This sitcom is educational while still being hilariously funny. We need more of that on TV!

Then at 10p but over on NBC, it is time for the Good Girls season finale. And what a way to end the season.

Beth (Christina Hendricks) is convinced that Rio (Manny Montana) is going to kill them. Therefore, she comes up with a plan on how to take him out. That is with the help of her sister, Annie (Mae Whitman), and best friend Ruby (Retta).

Turns out the timing is perfect because Ruby needs the money ASAP to pay for her daughter’s transplant. Did you know you need to pay for it upfront? And the surgery comes to almost $90,000. That is after insurance pays for 80% of it.

Anyways, the three women come up with the perfect plan. Just as they are executing it, all the lies that everyone has been hiding start to be revealed. Each one will have a different consequence. All leading to a shocking ending that will cause you to beg NBC to bring back the show for another season.

All I will say is not everyone gets their happy ending. Actually, none of them do. Which is why we need a second season of this show that proves that Good Girls can be bad girls too! About time we saw shows like this on TV. We know that man can be bad, but so can us ladies. As Mae West said, “When I am good, I’m very good. When I’m bad, I am better.”
