Lethal Weapon gets two more episodes
October 13th, 2018 under Wayans Brothers. [ Comments: none ]


Even though Damon Wayans said that he was quitting Lethal Weapon after this season’s 13th episode, Fox picked it up for 2 additional episodes.

The actor will be part of the episodes because The Hollywood Reporter reports that they are accommodating his needs. They are making, “tweaks to the shooting schedule and having diabetic meals on set for him.”

Since a normal full season is between 18-22 episodes. The 15 episodes most likely means it will not be back for a season 4. Well that and the ratings have not been as good this season without Clayne Crawford.

BTWF: Damon Wayans in Beverly Hills Cop
October 3rd, 2018 under Before They Were Famous, Wayans Brothers. [ Comments: none ]


Before Damon Wayans swore to protect and serve on Lethal Weapon, he was serving the Beverly Hills Cop. He looks the same now as he did when he was 23 in that 1984 movie

Maybe Clayne Crawford was not the problem?
October 3rd, 2018 under Fox, Wayans Brothers. [ Comments: none ]


Electronic Urban Report went to interview Damon Wayans about Lethal Weapon and he gave them an exclusive they were not expecting. He told them he was quitting the show in December at the end of the 13th episode.

The 58-year-old diabetic, who says he works 16-hour days, explained, “It’s hard for me to play this loving, supportive father/husband/friend on TV, but be the guy in life that is telling everyone, I can’t I have to work.”

What is next for him? He says he wants to return to the stage to find his “smile again.” Something that was missing from his face during the interview.

Wayans is the second lead to leave the show in the last six months. Clayne Crawford was fired back in May over abusive claims by Wayans. Therefore they brought in Seann William Scott to replace him. Now, I am sure Fox is debating whether or not to replace Wayans or end the show. Considering last night’s numbers, I have a feeling both The Gifted and Lethal Weapon will end their runs in January. Although, I am sure the network has not decided their fates just yet. But without Riggs and Murtaugh is it really Lethal Weapon? I do not think so.

What I do think is Fox is kicking themselves for cancelling Lucifer, The Last Man on Earth and The Mick. At least those actors get along and don’t quit the show. Maybe they can get the sitcoms back? But that is just me wanting those show back.

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.

Day 2 of the fall season and it is really bad
September 25th, 2018 under ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, Wayans Brothers. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight is the second night of the fall season and it is the worst night of television on all of the networks except for NBC. Tonight, we will be crying over This Is Us and tomorrow the heads of ABC, CBS and Fox will be crying over their how bad their shows are.

As I did yesterday and will continue to do, I will do my opinion of best to worst and tonight is a lot of worse.


I will start off with New Amsterdam that debuts at 10p on NBC. It is my favorite new show of the season. It was the only pilot that made me cry. That is because there is a lot of heart in the medical drama. It is not too focused on medical procedures or being a soap opera. It is about the patient as an individual and the doctors who want to make them feel better.

Dr. Max Goodwin (Ryan Eggold) is the brand medical director at Bellevue Hospital in NYC. He is going to shake things up at his new job. He tells the doctors put the patient before billing and he means it. He fires the whole cardiac surgical unit because that is what they do.

He wants to hear what the doctors want, so they can make the hospital a better place. The doctors are more than willing to do it, and it is starting to make them better doctors. How long can they do this before the money people make them stop? Not only that Dr. Goodwin has a secret of his own, one that might limit how long he stays at the hospital.

Thankfully he has a lot of good doctors to back him up like Dr. Hana Sharpe (Freema Agyeman), Dr. Laura Bloom (Janet Montgomery), Dr. Floyd Pearson (Jocko Sims), Dr. Anil Kapoor (Anupam Kher) and Dr. Iggy Frome (Tyler Labine).

I just love the feel of the show because it is a medical drama but not one that makes you feel like you might get diagnosed with one the unusual illnesses they have. Plus, Ryan Eggold plays the role so brilliantly. He is one of them, while also being their boss. You can feel the compassion in his performance.

Actually, you feel the compassion about the whole show and that is why it is my favorite new show of the season.
