All Rise films a virtual episode with all the actors quarantined at home
April 6th, 2020 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]

Almost all of the broadcast shows ended production of their seasons early because of Coronavirus. However, All Rise is going to back to work with a special episode that is relevant to what is going on now.

The May 4th episode will be shot entirely via FaceTime, WebEx, Zoom and other available social media and online technology from the actors’ homes. They will use special effects if need be to make their homes look more appropriate for the show. CBS also says, “In addition, a cinematographer operating solo from a vehicle will capture exterior footage that reflects the desolate environment that currently exists on the streets and in the neighborhoods of Los Angeles. The entire episode will be shot abiding by social distancing rules and technologies taking place in the world as it exists now. Executive producer Michael Robin will direct.”

What is this groundbreaking episode be about? They say, “…after debating the merits of continuing their work during this time, Judge Benner (Marg Helgenberger) authorizes Lola to preside over a virtual trial that involves a dispute between brothers and a stolen car. Emily (Jessica Camacho) represents the defendant, a graffiti artist, and Mark (Wilson Bethel) prosecutes for the D.A.’s office, marking the first time he tries a case in Lola’s “court.” Also, Mark and Quinn (Lindsey Gort) continue to explore their romantic (and sexual) relationship while quarantined in separate homes; Judge Benner oversees court from afar and struggles to learn how to cook; and Sara (Lindsay Mendez) has to balance her day job with a new side hustle as a food delivery driver. Luke (J. Alex Brinson) and Emily’s relationship is taxed by separation, and germaphobe and type-A Sherri (Ruthie Ann Miles) contends with the new world (dis)order.”

I am really curious to see what they do. It is a fast-paced show, so I feel for the poor editor who will have to piece it all together. However, they will do a great job, and the final product will be unbelievable. Something you don’t want to miss. Plus, what else is on?


CBS is a Man with a Plan and they plan on going Broke on Thursdays
January 28th, 2020 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]

On March 26th, Unicorn and Carol’s Second Act will air their season finales on CBS. Then on April 2nd, Man with a Plan and Broke will replace them.

Man with a Plan will debut its fourth season after Young Sheldon. This is the first time the sitcom that stars Matt LeBlanc and Matt Cook will air on Thursday nights. The safety show always aired on Mondays until Bob Loves Abeshola found an audience that loves them just as much.

Broke airs at 9:30p and it stars Jane the Virgin’s Jaime Camil and NCIS’s Pauley Perrette in a comedy about a single suburban mother (Perrette) who’s shocked when her estranged sister, her sister’s outrageously wealthy, big-hearted, Latin husband (Camil), and her husband’s fiercely loyal assistant/driver/friend land on her doorstep in need of a place to live after the couple’s money dries up.

Personally, I am happy Unicorn is gone but I wish Carol’s Second Act would stay a little longer because I am really enjoying it. I also doubt that either comedy will be back for a second season, but CBS always surprises us.

There’s a wedding on The Neighborhood, Get to know Athena on 9-1-1
November 4th, 2019 under Angela Bassett, CBS, Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on CBS’s The Neighborhood, it is Calvin (Cedric the Entertainer) and Tina’s (Tichina Arnold) 30th anniversary. As soon a Gemma (Beth Behrs) finds that out, she convinces them to have the wedding they never had. They got married the first time around in a courthouse.

Gemma gets so excited; she is spending their money like it grows on trees. Something that the very cheap Calvin does not like. He does something that causes Tina to call off the wedding.

Will Calvin and Tina get married or get divorced? You have to tune in to find out. There are definitely a lot of funny twists and turns throughout the episode.

Also at 8p but over on Fox, we learn Athena’s (Angela Bassett) backstory on 9-1-1. Before she was a police officer, she wanted to be a lawyer. Then one day, she met Emmett, a cop, and she fell in love. Not only did he convince her to become a cop, but he also asked her to marry him. She said yes.

Before they said I do, he was killed on the job, and his killer was never caught. That was until now. The gun that killed her first love has just been found, and she is going to do everything she can to trace back who had it on that fateful night. She will do things that will put her risk.

How far will she go to find her fiance’s killer? You are going to watch this episode that finally explains why she is the way that she is.


CBS was not Evil to all of their new shows
October 22nd, 2019 under CBS, Chuck Lorre. [ Comments: none ]

While Fox and NBC have announced the fate for 2/3 of their new shows, CBS is batting 100. Today, all of their shows got the news that was just what the doctor ordered, Bob ♥ Abishola, All Rise, The Unicorn and Carol’s Second Act were all picked up for a full season. Wait, what about Evil? Their first season will end with its lucky 13th episode. Does that mean it is cancelled? Not at all, it will be back for a second season.

I think CBS made the right choices. Evil is one of the few broadcast supernatural shows that actually got stronger after the pilot. Last week’s episode went to a place that not many shows will go. It was a brave risk that wound up working. Yesterday, after I watched Bob ♥ Abishola, I hoped CBS believed it enough to keep it around. Today, they did just that. One thing I hope they do on Thursday nights is move Carol’s Second Act, which is a really funny s
sitcom that has shown us a new side of Patricia Heaton, up an hour so it follows Young Sheldon. It is a much better fit with The Big Theory spinoff than The Unicorn. That and I thought the latter was this season’s worst new show.
