The Good Doctor will check in for a fourth season
February 10th, 2020 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]

ABC announced today that it picked up The Good Doctor for another season. Normally, I would be happy about this news, but this season I have been struggling to watch.

What happened? Shaun has a girlfriend, and almost every week, they have been taking his relationship a little step further. First, the kiss, then him touching her boob, and finally him losing his virginity to her. If it was just little hints, I would be OK. However, they also show him talking about it to his co-workers every week. I thought it would end after they finally had sex, but now he is talking about giving her orgasms. When will it stop?

Who talks to their co-workers about their sex lives as much. I worked at a job that dealt with sex, and even my coworkers and I did not talk about it as much.

Therefore, when the show comes back next season, focus on the medicine. I am sure I am not the only one who does not want to hear about Shaun’s sex life anymore. Stop trying to be Grey’s Anatomy because your writers are not good at it.

Go back to what you did during the first season when it was more like House (the show’s creator, David Shore, also created that medical drama). Now, it too much about their personal lives that I don’t care about what they do outside the hospital.


Who asked for Young Frankenstein live?
January 8th, 2020 under ABC, Mel Brooks. [ Comments: none ]

I love Mel Brooks. I love Young Frankenstein. However, no one loved the Broadway musical Young Frankenstein. That is why it closed on so quickly on the Great White Way. It was considered a joke. Yet, for some reason, ABC thinks we want to see it live on our TV screens in the fall around Halloween. What are they thinking?

As the word, we say after you hear “Frau Blücher,” “Neigh!”

I don’t care if the revised version got positive reviews on The West End, there are hundreds of other musicals they can do first. If they are going to work with Mel Brooks, why not do The Producers with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick? What else are they doing now?

Are you going to watch it? I will, but don’t tell anyone!


American Housewife is the new Modern Family!
January 8th, 2020 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]

We know that Modern Family and How to Get Away with Murder are ending this season, and now we know when they will be saying goodbye.

The sitcom, who helped remind networks that we still need them, will end its run on Apil 8th. Then a week later, American Housewife will take over its slot. About time ABC realized what a gem they have with this show.

In order to remind Modern Family fans about Housewife, it will take over its old time slot, which is occupied by Single Parents (not liking this news), starting on March 18th before moving to 9p the following month. Shark Tank is moving back to Fridays starting on February 28th.

What about HTGAWM? It returns with new episodes starting on April 2nd and will get murdered on May 14th.

Finally, The Conners will go live February 11th on both coasts (take that other networks who do live shows). What happens that night? The New Hampshire Democratic presidential primary. Results will be shared live during the episode. ABC describes that special as “Mark (Ames McNamara) watching the results of the primary for a school report with Harris (Emma Kenney), who is apathetic to the electoral process and believes money’s influence in politics means real change is impossible. The rest of the Conners share their differing takes on why they all think everyone should vote, including their working-class perspective that you may have to vote for a candidate you don’t love but one that will ‘screw you the least.’ All of this happens against the backdrop of romance when Louise (guest star Katey Sagal) gets an opportunity that might send her away from Lanford, prompting the family to interfere in Dan’s (John Goodman) complicated relationship with her by throwing Louise a surprise going-away party, creating major new tensions between Dan and his daughters.”

Got it all? If not, your DVR will!

UPDATE: ABC made more announcements today. The Oscars will once again go hostless. Former Oscar host, Jimmy Kimmel, will host 8 episodes of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire starting on April 8th. That is not the only game show coming to ABC. Later this year, we will see Leslie Jones hosting Supermarket Sweep. Finally, they are shooting a pilot with the original cast of thirtysomething for a sequel to the show that is about their kids. It will be interesting to see if it gets picked up to series.


Grey’s Anatomy is on the move
November 21st, 2019 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]

For several seasons, Grey’s Anatomy has aired at 8p on Thursday nights. However, come January 23rd, that is all going to change. The medical drama’s spinoff Station 19 will occupy that timeslot and the OG will follow. Hopefully, it will help the show about firefighters get better ratings.

It looks Dancing with the Stars will take another spring off because of American Idol. Although ABC says will get more premiere dates as time goes on. For example, we do not know what will replace Fresh Off the Boat when it sinks in February. Most likely comedy repeats.

One show that is ending early is Emergence. It will be replaced by 50 Cent’s show For Life.

Constance Wu got her wish
November 8th, 2019 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]

ABC announced today that Fresh Off the Boat will be ending its run in February with a one-hour series finale. The sitcom about the Huang family has lost a lot of its audience since it moved to Fridays this season, so the news is not a surprise.

I have to admit, I am OK with the cancellation because Constance Wu soured the show for me. Back in May, she let her feelings be known that she was unhappy that the series was picked for a 6th season. While many actors, especially Asian ones, would love the opportunity to be part of a weekly show, she was pissed. Now that the sitcom has been cancelled, I am able to cancel her. I think Hollywood should do the same because she is ungrateful. If she can say this about one of her projects, she can say that about the rest of them.

She should be happy with the work because she is a one-note actress. Plays every role the same.

Back to FOTB, this season has not been as good. It feels off is the best way to put it. My guess is because Wu also soured the show for them too.

Finally, my prediction is that the series finale will be about Eddie going away to college, since it is based on his life.
