A lot of shows got full season pickups today!
October 19th, 2018 under CBS, Shonda Rhimes. [ Comments: none ]


Today several shows found out that they are joining NBC’s Manafest and New Amsterdam, CBS’s FBI and ABC’s Single Parents.

Over at Fox, The Cool Kids and Last Man Standing will be around until May. Meanwhile, Rel awaits its fate, but I doubt it will go past 13 episodes. Why Fox keeps scheduling live action shows on an animated night is beyond me.

ABC did not pick up any new shows today, but they did give Station 19 a full season. When it comes to the rest, I think A Million Little Things will get a 3 episode pick up. The Rookie will be around for a full season. But I am not sure what they will do with The Kids Are Alright because it is benefitting by The Conners. Can it do well without its lead-in? I highly doubt it.

CBS told The Neighborhood, Magnum PI and Gd Friended Me that they want to be friends with them all season long. Something I never would have called. I thought Magnum was going to stop at 13. Something I fear will happen to Happy Together, which I think is their best new show. Murphy Brown was only picked up for 13 and I think that will be all it will get.

It is too early for The CW to announce what they will do with Charmed and All American. I do not think All American will go all the way, but I do think Charmed will. That leaves NBC’s I Feel Bad and I feel bad that this show will most likely be 13 and done.

Finally, since it is rare that networks pull a show before it airs all of its episodes. I think if Alec Baldwin’s talk show does another really poor outing this Sunday, that it will be its last one.

Murphy Brown takes on #MeToo and it is must watch episode
October 11th, 2018 under Candice Bergen, CBS. [ Comments: none ]


Last week, Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual assault from his teenage years, was confirmed to be a Supreme Court Justice. People kept saying, “Why come forward 36 years later?” Or they would say, “She has no proof.” I guess they were never sexually assaulted or harassed, so they do not understand what it was like in the old days. Tonight at 9:30p on CBS, Murphy Brown shows us what was like years ago as compared to now and why women did not say anything back then.

The episode starts off with the staff of Murphy in the Morning having to go through sexual harassment training. Something Miles (Grant Shaud) needs because he is hitting on a female employee. Murphy (Candice Bergen) does not think she needs to go because it is her show. That is when she reminded what happened to a few other people…

After the class, Frank (Joe Regalbuto) realizes he might need some help and Pat (Nik Dodani) has an app he created that might help him. If he says something inappropriate, then it buzzes him. Side note, someone needs to make this app real!

Anyways, Murphy, Miles and Corky (Faith Ford) go to the bar, and the latter talks about the times she was sexually harassed when she was first starting out. That strikes a nerve with Murphy and causes her to remember something that happened to her when she was younger.

Later that day, Avery (Jake McDorman) realizes that something is off with his mom (with a line that will make you LOL), so he asks her what her what is going on. She tells him and he explains to her what happened to her is not her fault. But it is still weighing on her.

She goes to the bar and talks to Phyllis (Tyne Daly). The bartender, who does not like give her advice, gives her some. She needs to confront her attacker. That is when she decides to see him and confront him about their past.

What happens next is something everyone needs to see. It might show all of these people, who cannot understand the #MeToo movement, why it is so important. Why he said/she said is not just perceived as he said. For the first time in history, she said being heard just as loud if not louder.

Tonight, I highly suggest to everyone, to watch Murphy Brown because it is a real eye-opener. It shows us how the women of today feel empowered that what happened in their past is not their fault. They should not be ashamed. That they are victims and not their assaulters. Maybe if this aired last week, Kavanaugh would not be on SCOTUS. Which he should not be but that is a whole other episode.

Madam Secretary starts off with a bang and three real Secretaries of States!
October 7th, 2018 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]


Madam Secretary is back on CBS tonight at 10p and they have three very special guest stars. Gen. Colin Powell, Madeleine Albright and Hillary Clinton will all play themselves when Madam Secretary Bess (Téa Leoni) need them.

When I say the episode starts off with a bang, I do not mean them. I mean there is an explosion in the White House and not everyone is going to survive it.

Bess has brokered a great peace deal between two feuding countries and they are ready to sign on the dotted line with the president by their side when the attack happens. After the dust clears, she needs to reassure the American people, which is why she goes to the former Secretaries for help. Their words of wisdom to her, are words our current administration should pay attention to.

If this season is as good as this tonight’s season premiere, you are not going to want ti miss a single episode.

Tell Me a Story is a tale I cannot wait to be told
October 6th, 2018 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]


Kevin Williamson is back doing a horror TV series with CBS All Access’ Tell Me A Story and his take on Grimm fairy tales is not for kids. The modern take on our childhood stories like Three Little Pig and Little Red Riding Hood will not put us to sleep like the classic version, but the show that debuts on Halloween looks like a dream come true. Or should I say nightmare? Be prepared to stay up all night as Goldie Locks really finds out what happens if you sleep in three beds that do not belong to you.

CBS debuts two funny comedies, who gets arrested on The Resident
October 1st, 2018 under CBS, Wayans Brothers. [ Comments: none ]


CBS starts off the night with the new comedy The Neighborhood that stars several sitcom veterans.

Dave Johnson (Max Greenfield), his wife Gemma (Beth Behrs) and their son Grover (Hank Greenspan) move from a small town in Michigan to a predominately African-American town in Los Angeles. Gemma got a job as a principal at a nearby progressive school and that is why they moved there.

Their next-door neighbor Calvin (Cedric the Entertainer) is the African-American version of Archie Bunker. He cannot stand his new neighbor, who is overly nice. Thankfully, for Dave, Calvin’s wife (Tichina Arnold) and their sons Malcolm (Sheaun McKinney) and Marty (Marcel Spears) will do everything they can to get the two men to get along. Some things are easier said than done.

Tonight, Calvin holds a yard-e-que and invited the Johnsons and Dave makes things much worse for the families. Next week, they both have different parenting skills and their sons benefit for getting some fatherly advice from the other one. Then for the fourth episode, Dave hosts a party and Calvin closes it down.

When you put four funny comedy stars on one sitcom, you get a show that we can all enjoy. It has a lot of potential and I cannot wait to see what else they do with it.


Then at 8:30p, Happy Together, a sitcom, loosely based on Harry Styles, comes to CBS. Out of all of the new sitcoms, this one us my favorite one. After watching the first three episodes, this one made me laugh the hardest in each episode.

Jake (Damon Wayans Jr.) and Claire (Amber Stevens West) are a married couple, who have become a boring old couple even though they are only in their 30’s.

Jake is an accountant whose client is Cooper James (Felix Mallard), the hottest pop star of the year. He just broke up with his girlfriend and the paps are following him around to get a scoop. James decides to hideout at Jake’s house because no one would expect him to be there.

Cooper James (Felix Mallard) has been living like a rock star for so long, he does not remember what it is like to be normal. Jake and Claire have become so dull, they do not remember what it is like to be cool. Together, they will help each other to find what they were missing. Especially, now that he is moved in with them.

Wayans Jr. and West are so good at being corny, you cannot help but to laugh with them. Meanwhile, Mallard is just so likable that you cannot help but to love him. Plus, he is east on the eyes. Together the three deliver a show that will make you laugh until it hurts.

Talking about deliver, West is pregnant with her first child in real life and they are no writing her pregnancy into the show. For a fun drinking game, drink every time they try to hide her growing belly.


Also at 8p but over on Fox is The Resident. The episode starts off with someone getting arrested and that person hoping that they will get off with the crime. If they do not, then they have to report it to the Georgia Medical Board. Ending their career.

Now that Conrad’s (Matt Czuchry) dad owns the Chastain Park Memorial he wants to make it a better place for his son. Therefore, Marshall (Glenn Morshower) holds a meeting with Conrad and Dr. Bell (Bruce Greenwood) to see how they can do that. Conrad wants to put patients first, while Dr. Bell knows you cannot do that without money, lots and lots of money. The two men are adamant about what they want, and Marshall is stuck in the middle.

Meanwhile, a teenage boy comes in after getting into an accident and his parents are very wealthy. Dr. Bell sees dollar signs, while Conrad sees a boy he needs to save. How far will they go to save him and how much will it cost his family?

Now that Devin (Manish Dayal) is a second resident, he needs to train some of the first years. Some of the other doctors compare him to Conrad, and he does not want to be like his mentor. Will he be?

Each medical drama has their own focus and this one is about working in a hospital, saving patients, operating a hospital and doctors in love. It is the perfect combination and not too soapy.
