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.

Superstore teaches us health care, a Good Place wedding and a memorable Will & Grace
November 2nd, 2017 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]


I do not know about you, but I really do not understand how health care works. But thanks to tonight’s Superstore at 8p on NBC, I now have a better understanding of it.

During an office meeting, Mateo (Nico Santos) is moaning in pain and he tells his coworkers that he has an ear infection. That is when they all give him wild home remedies to try out. When someone asks him why doesn’t he just go to a doctor, they tell her that they have crappy health insurance and they cannot afford to go.

That is when Jonah (Ben Feldman) and Amy (America Ferrera) come up with an internal health plan so that everyone can go to the doctor and finally get looked at. Only problem is, people like Sandra (Kaliko Kauahi) have so many health issues that now they need to figure how to accommodate those with pre existing conditions and those without. By the end of the episode, you will think that every member of Congress, Senate and the President will need to watch to episode because it is health care made for Dummies!

That and they might enjoy when Glen (Mark McKinney) asks Dina (Lauren Ash) to look at a mole one his body to see if it looks cancerous. Sounds simple, but the mole is in a hard location. If you get what I mean.

After months of being pissed off about health care, it is nice to finally be able to laugh about it.


Then at 8:30p, The Good Place is turning into an interesting place because of Derek (Jason Mantzoukas). If you remember last week, Janet (D’Arcy Carden) created Derek to get over Jason (Manny Jacinto). She is not still not over being married to him several hundred reboots ago and he does not even remember ever being married to her because Michael (Ted Danson) has wiped his memory clean a few hundred of times.

Jason has moved on with his soul mate Tahani (Jameela Jamil), so much so they want to get married. What will Michael do? Janet’s little experiment is causing problems, and they are problems he cannot afford. How will he help out his friend, so that she can happy and doesn’t destroy his Good Place with glitches?

All of that leads to an oh fork moment at the end you do not want to miss on this brilliant show you should be watching. It is so much fun and who does not need fun on a Thursday night?


Then at 9p, it is time for Will & Grace. Will (Eric McCormack) & Grace (Debra Messing) & Jack (Sean Hayes) & Karen (Megan Mullally) get some news that will change all of them forever. But since they are such great friends, they are always there for each other when they really need them. Since NBC did not spoil what it is this time like they did for the Grandpa Jack episode, I won’t either. All I will tell you is that Jack does a dance number that will be tomorrow’s GIF.

Also when NBC says it is a must see event, they mean it. It is one that no fan of the show will want to miss. Thus, don’t miss it! I am so happy that NBC got this revival right. It could have gone so wrong but it has remained true to the original run.

It is unethical how Must See TV tonight’s NBC lineup is!
October 19th, 2017 under Dick Wolf, NBC. [ Comments: none ]


NBC’s night starts off at 8p with Superstore and it will steal your attention. Jonah (Ben Feldman) walks in on a man robbing the store’s backroom of money and does nothing about it. As the crook is running away, Dina (Lauren Ash) tramples him and he is arrested. She thinks she did a good thing until the Jeff (Michael Bunin) the district managers says she did the wrong thing and Jonah did the right one. That causes tension between the two. Even more so, when Jonah tells Jeff that Dina has been bullying him. Jeff writes up Dina and she challenges Jonah to fight. Who wins? Let’s just say one person comes up on top!


Then at 8:30p, it is unethical how good The Good Place is tonight. Chidi (William Jackson Harper) is teaching Michael (Ted Danson) ethics. Something that is very hard to do when the student is an evil demon. Feels like it will never happen until Michael comes up with a solution. He decides that they should live the ethical problems that Chidi has been giving him to study. Like what happens if are driving a runaway trolley and you can switch tracks, would you stay on the track with 5 workers or the one with only one person on it. What if you knew that one person? And so on. Therefore, Michael puts Chidi and Eleanor (Kristen Bell) on the track in that trolley and now that have to make that decision as we do the unethical thing and laugh until we hurt. They go through several scenarios each funnier than the last. However, is it enough to teach Michael to be ethical?

Talking about lessons, Janet (D’Arcy Carden) is learning how to be a therapist so that she can help Jason (Manny Jacinto) and Tahini’s (Jameela Jamil) relationship work. Even though it is working, there are consequences for Janet. Huge problems.

Make sure to record this episode because you are going to want to rewatch it several times.


Talking about an episode you will want to keep on your DVR, you are not going to want to erase tonight’s Will & Grace at 9p. There is a knock on Will’s (Eric McCormack) door and it will forever change Jack’s (Sean Hayes) life. A young boy tells Jack, he is Elliott’s (Michael Angarano) son. In case you forgot, Elliott is Jack’s son, so that means Jack is a grandfather. Let that sink in! That is all I am going to tell you about the episode because I want you to enjoy it as much as I did. Because after all, Jack is a grandfather!


NBC closes the night with Great News at 9:30p and Chicago Fire at 10p. On the latter Gabby (Monica Raymund) is out picking up a gift for her husband, when she notices that construction above an underground parking lot is causing it to collapse. She runs inside to warn the people what is about to happen, and then it happens. The lot collapses on top of her and several other people. Now they are in a race against time to get out of there if they want to get out alive. Only problem is is there no way out, no one can hear them and carbon monoxide is starting to pollute the limited air they have. Will they be able to get out of there alive or will they be crushed by all of the concrete above them? You don’t want to miss a single second of this thrilling episode that feels like a throwback to the disaster movies from the ’70s.

The Night Shift is permanently off duty
October 14th, 2017 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]


After 4 seasons, NBC has decided to discharge the medical/military drama The Night Shift from its summer lineup. The cancellation is kind of a surprise because it was still doing alright in the ratings.

The show’s executive producer, Gabe Sachs, had this to say about the sad news, “No season 5! Very bummed. We love you all. Thank you for all the support and love you gave to us @NBCNightShift We wouldn’t have been there without you. THANK YOU!!!”

A breast cancer scare on Will & Grace, sexual harassment on Great News
October 12th, 2017 under Debra Messing, NBC. [ Comments: none ]


Will & Grace gets serious tonight at 9p on NBC. Grace (Debra Messing) goes to the gynecologist (much to the disgust of Will (Eric McCormack) and Jack (Sean Hayes)) and they find some abnormal cells in her breast. Once she gets over the shock, she gets another one. They called her emergency contact to pick her up and it is Leo (Harry Connick Jr). Now we are going to find out what went wrong in their marriage. Is there a chance they can get back together?

We also learn what a Platinum Gay is and why Jack is one. On that note, Jack gets an acting job and he brings Karen (Megan Mullally) along with him. We are going to see a different side of her.

One thing we will not see a different side of, is just how funny this show still after its 11 year hiatus! I am so happy that NBC brought this show back.


Talking about NBC bringing things back, Tina Fey is on another new episode of Great News tonight at 9:30p. The show takes on a very topical subject, sexual harassment. But they do it with a twist, Diana St. Tropez (Fey) is the harasser.

First she harasses Greg (Adam Campbell), then Carol (Andrea Martin) and pretty much anyone else in the office. Everyone but Justin (Horatio Sanz), because well, and Katie (Briga Heelan). Katie, who does not believe her mentor can do that, so she confronts Diana about. Diana does not deny it, so now the staff of MMN is going to try trap her. What happens next is something none of us will see coming.

Even though, this is an especially upsetting topic right now, they did it a way that is informational and comical. I was beyond impressed by what a Great job they did with a story that is currently in the News. But I am always impressed by this show.
