S.W.A.T. and Family Feud are getting ready to get back to work
August 3rd, 2020 under CBS, Steve Harvey, TV Soaps. [ Comments: none ]

Normally at this time of year, broadcast’s scripted television would be back in full production. However, COVID-19 has other ideas about that. This year, the only shows back at work are game shows, reality TV, and soap operas.

Well, that is about to change soon. Deadline is reporting that S.W.A.T., the midseason show that just made it back on the fall lineup, is expected to start filming tomorrow in Los Angeles. By the end of the month, it could be joined by The Goldbergs. These Sony produced shows join their studio brethren Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, Shark Tank, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and The Restless in production.

Y&R joins B&B and will begin airing new episodes starting on August 10th, according to CBS.

There is one more Sony show getting ready to go back to work, and that is The Good Doctor in Vancouver. It is not the only show that tapes in Canada that is gearing up to begin filming. So is Supernatural, The Flash, Riverdale, A Million Little Things, and Charmed. When Calls the Heart went back into production last week with Jack Wagner.

That is north of Hollywood to the west, Family Feud will forego an audience in Atlanta later this month per The Wrap. Up north in New York City, The Blacklist is not being blacklisted from filming.

All of these shows will constantly be testing the cast and crew to make sure they are still coronavirus negative. It will be costly, but not producing new episodes is even more expensive. However, human lives are priceless, and they will do everything they can to protect them.


Can the Gronk handle the pain of childbirth?
July 20th, 2020 under CBS, Sports figures. [ Comments: none ]

Game On wanted to see if Rob Gronkowski could handle the intense pain of childbirth. Therefore they strapped him to a machine that simulates the pain of birthing a baby.

How did the Gronk do? As soon as they turned the machine on, his body started to shake uncontrollably. Then when they amped up to five, his whole body started to contort. Finally, when they turned it all the way up to 10, he began to flap his limbs like a chicken with their head cut off. Throughout it all, he did not curse or scream. The football great just laid there and took it like a woman.

My helmut is off to him. He really can take a licking and keep on ticking. Then again, he used to pain as a tight end.

Talking about his tight end, did you see when the CBS game show made him a LA Lakers Girl for a day?


CBS has spoken, Survivor was voted off this fall
July 14th, 2020 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, broadcast television’s fall lineup is in flux. CBS was hoping that they could have production up and running for their show Survivor in enough time to get it on the air. However, they will not be able to do it. That is why, for the first time since 2000, we will not be getting a new edition in the fall.

Since Survivor 41 will not be going on as planned, they are changing up their Wednesday night lineup. When their season starts up eventually, their hump day will start off with Amazing Race, followed by SEAL Team, and end with S.W.A.T. The latter was supposed to be a midseason replacement.

Are you going to miss Survivor?


Gronk is a Laker Girl!
June 10th, 2020 under CBS, Sports figures. [ Comments: none ]

Now that Rob Gronkowski is waiting to begin practice with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he needs to find a temporary job. CBS found him one for their show Game On tonight at 8p. The Tight End is going to show us if he has one when he becomes one of the Laker Girls.

Does he have the sexuality they have, or will the fans be screaming foul? There is only one way to find out, and that is to watch. I am going to check it out because I want to see he wears a short skirt! Then we will really know if he lives up to his football position on the basketball court.


CBS is going on as life is returning to normal
May 19th, 2020 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]

The CW and Fox are pretty much ignoring the fall season, while CBS is acting like the coronavirus pandemic hasn’t halted production indefinitely. Today the latter announced their schedule for next season and it as though it is as business as usual.

They expect to launch all of their shows, but midseason holdouts SWAT and Clarice, as is with the hopes that production will be able to resume over the summer.

Are they making the right move? We will find out in September, which might turn into October, and so on. Hopefully, them throwing caution into the wind will work to their advantage. I want my favorite shows back sooner rather than later. Who doesn’t?
