The Rookie moves to Tuesdays in January
November 7th, 2022 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]

ABC announced its midseason lineup, and they are pairing up The Rookie with its spinoff The Rookie: Feds, and this is the smartest thing they did all season.

What is not smart is that The Wonder Years is not on it, and they didn’t move Abbott Elementary to 8p on Wednesdays. The school sitcom is more of a family show than The Conners.

Here is the new schedule:

8:00-10:00 p.m. “Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration” (previously announced)
10:00-11:00 p.m. “The Parent Test” (special series premiere – previously announced)

8:00-9:00 p.m. “The Rookie” (new night and time)
9:00-10:00 p.m. “The Rookie: Feds” (new time)
10:00-11:00 p.m. “Will Trent” (series premiere)

9:00-9:31 p.m. “Abbott Elementary”
9:31-10:00 p.m. “Home Economics”
10:00-11:00 p.m. “Big Sky: Deadly Trails”

8:00-9:00 p.m. “Celebrity Jeopardy!” (new night)
9:00-10:00 p.m. “The Parent Test” (regular time period premiere)
10:00-11:00 p.m. “The Chase” (new night and time)

8:00-9:01 p.m. “Shark Tank”

8:00-8:30 p.m. “The Conners”
8:30-9:00 p.m. “The Goldbergs”

8:00-10:01 p.m. “The Bachelor” (season premiere – previously announced)
10:01-11:00 p.m. “The Good Doctor”

8:30-9:00 p.m. “Not Dead Yet” (early series premiere)
9:31-10:00 p.m. “Not Dead Yet” (regular time period premiere – new episode)
10:00-11:00 p.m. “A Million Little Things” (farewell season premiere)

7:00-8:00 p.m. “America’s Funniest Home Videos”
8:00-10:00 p.m. “American Idol” (season premiere)
10:00-11:00 p.m. “The Company You Keep” (series premiere)

8:00-9:00 p.m. “Station 19”
9:00-10:01 p.m. “Grey’s Anatomy”
10:01-11:00 p.m. “Alaska Daily”

The saddest thing to happen to A Million Little Things
November 7th, 2022 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]

When I watched the pilot for A Million Little Things, I thought, why were so many good actors being wasted on such a depressing show? I couldn’t understand why people would want to tune in for a cryfest every week. But they did.

Well, I guess they got bored of the sadness and started to tune out. So today, ABC announced that this upcoming season will be its last.

You can watch the final episodes starting on February 8th.

And hopefully, this news means we will get another Psych movie and a Grimm sequel! As I said, the actors’ talent was wasted in this series.


The Rookie: Feds will be around all season
October 21st, 2022 under ABC, Niecy Nash. [ Comments: none ]

ABC announced today that they picked up The Rookie: Feds for additional episodes. The news is not a surprise because it is a darling series with a loveable cast and exciting storylines.

Hopefully, we will get more crossovers with The Rookie, like we did this week, as the season goes on. And next season, let’s hope ABC makes the smart decision to pair the two series together. It worked so well for Station 19; it is now doing better than Grey’s Anatomy.

If you haven’t seen the police procedural, you can watch it Tuesdays at 10p or on Hulu anytime.


The Rookie: Feds is giving police procedurals a much needed shot of fun
September 27th, 2022 under ABC, Niecy Nash. [ Comments: none ]

Police procedurals have become so serious, and that makes things more depressing. However, The Rookie: Feds is bringing some levity into the genre thanks to Niecy Nash’s huge upbeat personality. She is so likable that it sucks you in, and you don’t want to be set free.

The episode starts off with her graduating from the FBI Academy with Brendon Acres (Kevin Zegers). He is a former actor who decided to see the sunlight again. He is most known for playing Vampire Cop, and that works both for and against him.

The two of them are heading to LA to work with Matthew Garza’s (Feliz Solis) new unit. Garza started it because of the time he caught a terrorist with Simone Clark (Nash). When they get there, she finds out she will not be part of his team. Instead, she is going to work in background checks. Do you think she is going to take that lying down? Or should I say sitting in a chair? Of course not, so you have to see how she is going to wiggle her way into the unit.

The unit has two other agents. They are Laura Stensen (Britt Robertson). She is the observant profiler who is going through her own issues. However, you can’t tell because she is stoic.

Then there is Carter Hope (James Leisure), who wants a promotion, and he never seems to get one. He is a by-the-books guy, so he doesn’t like Simone, who is the complete opposite.

Something she got from her father (Frankie R. Faison). As happy as he is to have his daughter home, he doesn’t like her profession. They live in an area where cops are something to be feared, and not in a good way. He is going to keep his daughter grounded and remind her where she is from. And that makes her a better Fed in LA!

And there is not much I can say to make this show better because it is so much fun. Yeah, I said it, a police procedural can be fun. A big reason for that is that the cast already has a lot of chemistry, and the writing is more relaxed with a go big or go home mentality. So together, it all works. And I can see this show being around for a long time because people are going to love it. The genre has been needing something enjoyable like this for a while.


Are you ready to laugh with Abbott Elementary?
September 12th, 2022 under ABC, Sheryl Lee Ralph. [ Comments: 6 ]

ABC released the first trailer for the second season of Abbott Elementary, and the sitcom about teachers is still bringing the laughs. Actually, it looks like Quinta Brunson, Tyler James Williams, Janelle James, Lisa Ann Walter, Chris Perfetti, and Sheryl Lee Ralph have graduated to giving us even more humor. Because of that, September 21st can’t come soon enough!
