10-11 P.M. — Law & Order: SVU

8-9 P.M. – Blindspot
9-10 P.M. — Midnight, Texas
10-11 P.M — Dateline NBC

NBC announced their fall schedule today and I am already addicted. I love that they made an all Chicago night on Wednesdays, which has worked well for ABC and their Shonda nights.

Then there are their new shows. Manifest looks like what would have happened had the Lost plane returned. Because of that, I am curious to see what happens next. When it comes to Tuesdays, I am buying stock in Kleenex. Two tear-jerkers back to back is going to be too much for our eyes to handle. Let alone our hearts. I Feel Bad will be an interesting fit with Will & Grace, but I think it is a good transition into Law & Order: SVU. I am completely shocked that NBC is moving Midnight Texas to the fall and I think it is a wise choice. They have made Fridays their Sci-Fi night and it works. Maybe they will give us the sequel to Grimm they teased in their series finale.

When it comes to the missing shows from the fall. America’s Got Talent: The Champions will be NBC’s The Bachelor as in it will fill in for The Voice in between seasons. Blindspot will take over The Blacklist’s timeslot when the latter wraps up its sixth season. World of Dance and Good Girls moves to Sunday when football season ends. The newly acquired Brooklyn Nine-Nine does not have a timeslot yet, but I am sure it will find one soon enough.

Finally, NBC has yet to make a decision on Timeless and Champions. If you want these shows, then you have to watch!

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.


NBC saves Brooklyn Nine-Nine
May 12th, 2018 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

Fox made the huge mistake of cancelling The Last Man on Earth, Lucifer and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. NBC decided to right one of the wrongs by picking up Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a 13-episode sixth season. Proving fans have a voice and thankfully someone is listening. Now if someone can listen to other two pleas, we would be very happy.

BTW I am not surprised by NBC’s decision because it is a Lorne Michaels’ show and his voice is very loud over at the peacock network.


Lots of not so Great News today for the evil networks
May 11th, 2018 under ABC, Fox, NBC, The CW. [ Comments: none ]

Fox is doing a big FU to his fans. Yesterday, they cancelled The Last Man on Earth, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Mick. Today, they followed it up by doing the same to Lucifer and Exorcist. I could care less about the latter, but the former really hurts. It was a thrilling show with a great ensemble cast that played off each other well. To top it off, the show’s EP Joe Henderson wrote, “We created a season finale with a huge cliffhanger so that there was no way Fox could cancel us. Instead, we’re going to frustrate the hell out of you fans. I’m so sorry for that. #Lucifer.” I think of all of the shows this is the one that has the best chances of getting picked up by someone else. On a positive note, they revived Last Man Standing.

The CW was very nice to me today because they picked up iZombie for a fifth season. Which completes all of their renewals and cancellations. CBS, on the other hand, did not pick up or cancel anything today.

Over NBC they cancelled the heartfelt Rise that they did not do enough to promote. They also gave bad news to Great News. They were also not brave enough to renew Brave.

ABC like every year goes cancelling crazy because I do not think they know what they are doing. They picked up Speechless, Black-ish, American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, Splitting Up Together, For the People, Station 19 and How to Get Away Murder for another season. But they cancelled Designated Survivor, Deception, The Crossing, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, The Inhumans, Quantico and Alex, Inc. Basically, they cancelled all the dramas that are not produced by Shonda Rhymes. What type of world do we live in that the fake president gets impeached before the real one? Kiefer Sutherland is a much better president than the one we have now.

As my DVR has a huge party, I am crying tears for all the shows I lost today. Doing a Marlon Brando, “Stella” scream but replacing it with all the shows I lost. And there were a lot.


Oh farts, Last Man on Earth, The Mick and Nine-Nine are axed, while others are renewed
May 10th, 2018 under Fox, NBC, Will Forte. [ Comments: none ]

Today is the day that most of the broadcast networks make up their minds on what shows they want to keep and which ones they don’t. The latter leaving people like me downing a bottle of St John’s Wort.

The first sad news came from January Jones who broke the news that The Last Man on Earth was cancelled after only four seasons. She wrote, “To our @lastmanfox’s been an amazing 4yrs, thank you for all the hard work, we love you and will miss seeing you every day! And thank you to our fans who loved and laughed at these ridiculous and lovably flawed characters. @orviv your brain is a national(global?),treasure ❤️” She is not kidding about Forte’s brain, it is scrumptious gem full of beautiful smelling farts. How many other actors would do what he did in that photo above and with a big smile on his face. That is the perfect way to describe this show, a big smile. You can tell this was a cast that loves working on the show and each other ever more than that. A combination that is rare these days. I can go on, but I am only on my first glass of wine. Also, I am not ready to handle the fact that the show ended with such a cliffhanger that will not be resolved just like what happened on Soap, Benson, Alf and V.

Now, as I get ready to pour the second glass in honor of Mary Steenburgen’s character, I am sad that The Mick is ending too. This is a comedy that pushed the envelope so far it fell off of the flat earth and went into a black hole. How many other shows would have a sex scene with a 100-year-old woman and a 30-year-old female for diamonds? Did I mention, they showed a lot of nudity and then they killed her off the rich old lady by having her mix her oxygen tank with one last cigarette. What other show would do that? None, for a very good reason but still it was very funny.

Finally, Fox also gave the ax to Brooklyn Nine-Nine after 5 seasons. Never got that show. I guess Fox is getting out of the Saturday Night Live business.

What about some good news? NBC picked up AP Bio for a second season, which is good for Glenn Howerton since he quit It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. They are also staying with Blindspot for a fourth one and J-Lo’s World of Dance for a third. The latter is a summer show.

Back to f*cking Fox, they are staying with Star to see if the third one will be a charm. I do not watch that show, but I still watch Empire. Who else besides me, would like it to be put out of our misery? Seriously, the show is not even a shell of what it once was. It is barely watchable which is why I watch most episodes and have no idea what just happened and I don’t care that zoned out for a whole hour.
