CBS announced today that they are sticking with the game/talk show @fter Midnight for a second season.

“Taylor [Tomilison] is a gifted comedian who brings a unique voice, energy and plenty of rizz to late night (I learned rizz is a real word thanks to the show.) We’re excited for more of her daily smart takes about the dumbest things on the internet,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment.

Along with this announcement, CBS revealed that Nate Burleson, who co-anchors CBS Mornings and is an analyst on The NFL Today, will be hosting The Hollywood Squares.

I was looking forward to this game show’s return, but with him as the host and Drew Barrymore as the center square, I won’t be watching.


CBS announces its 2024-2025 schedule
May 2nd, 2024 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]

It is that time of year when we find out what we are going to be watching in the Fall. Today, CBS announced their schedule for next season.

CBS is adding several shows, and hopefully, it will work for them because they canceled shows that I watch. And it is all about me.

I think they made mistakes. They should have done an NCIS night like their FBI one. Why they won’t do it, I don’t know.

They canceled So Help Me Todd, but they have a free slot in the Fall at 10p on Sundays.

I love the idea of Hollywood Squared coming back, but Drew Barrymore should not be the center square. She is not quick-witted, and you have to be on that show. And that is not meant to be an insult. It is just true.

What do you think of CBS’s schedule.

CBS closes the case on So Help Me Todd and CSI: Vegas
April 19th, 2024 under CBS. [ Comments: 1 ]

Michael Courtney/CBS

CBS has been picking up shows like NCIS, The Neighborhood, and Fire Country for another season. However, today, they cancelled So Help Me Todd and CSI: Vegas.

While I am not surprised by CSI: Vegas, the sequel to CSI, because no one knows it is on, I am sad that So Help Me Todd with Marcia Gay Harden and Skylar Astin will not be back. But the writing was on the wall when CBS announced yesterday that Elsbeth was renewed.

I say that because CBS likes dark and gritty, and Elsbeth and Todd are both light and happy. Therefore, the network can only have one on the air at a time. Well, technically, there will be two shows because Matlock with Kathy Bates will join Elsbeth next season. I betcha Elsbeth will be a midseason replacement show.

Are you sad these series will not be back?


CBS picks up Elsbeth for another season

Elsbeth was the last new series to debut this season, but it is not the last one to find out its fate. CBS announced today that it picked up the legal police procedural for a second season.

“ELSBETH has charmed audiences with its singular blend of delightful humor, distinctive ‘how-done-it’ storytelling, and the inventive, brilliant quirkiness of Elsbeth Tascioni,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment. “Executive producers Robert and Michelle King have a stellar track record for creating critically acclaimed series full of unforgettable characters and, alongside showrunner Jonathan Tolins and his writing team, have developed an incredibly entertaining and engrossing New York City-centric world for the show to explore. We are grateful to the uniquely talented cast, led by Carrie Preston, Wendell Pierce and Carra Patterson, for bringing these wonderful characters to life in the company of a world-class roster of weekly guest stars”.

You can watch a new episode tonight at 9p.


CBS apologizes for cutting off the Piano Man and will re-air Billy Joel on April 19th
April 15th, 2024 under Billy Joel, CBS. [ Comments: none ]

Yesterday, CBS aired the highly anticipated Billy Joel: The 100th – Live at Madison Square Garden. However, the Masters ran late, and that caused the concert to start late. Therefore, the local news would also be starting later.

However, the local news started earlier than expected and cut the Piano Man off during his final song Piano Man.

Needless to say, the fans were pissed, as they should be.

So, today, CBS released this statement, “A network programming timing error ended last night’s Billy Joel special approximately two minutes early in the Eastern and Central Time Zones. We apologize to Mr. Joel, his fans, our affiliated stations, and our audience whose viewing experience was interrupted during the last song. Due to the overwhelming demand from his legion of fans, BILLY JOEL: THE 100TH – LIVE AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN will be rebroadcast in its entirety on CBS on April 19th at 9:00PM ET/PT.”

I am surprised this happened again after the Heidi incident in 1968. That was when NBC cut off the NY Jets vs the Oakland Raiders and switched to the movie Heidi during the game. Fans missed the Raiders coming from behind in the final few minutes. And they went nuts. Can you blame them?

Since then, the networks have tried never to do that again. But yesterday, it happened, and CBS felt the Pressure to make it up to the fans.

So they will re-air it on Friday instead of repeats of Fire Country and Blue Bloods.

If you cannot wait until then, you can watch it on Paramount+.
