A few years ago, CBS had a hit with Elementary, a show with a modern-day Sherlock Holmes. And now they are hoping that lightning will strike twice with Watson. So, they picked it up as a series for the 2024-2025 season.

In WATSON, a year after the death of his friend and partner Sherlock Holmes at the hands of Moriarty, Dr. John Watson (Chestnut) resumes his medical career as the head of a clinic dedicated to treating rare disorders. Watson’s old life isn’t done with him, though – Moriarty and Watson are set to write their own chapter of a story that has fascinated audiences for more than a century. WATSON is a medical show with a strong investigative spine, featuring a modern version of one of history’s greatest detectives as he turns his attention from solving crimes to solving medical mysteries.

“We are thrilled to feature such a beloved character from the world of Sherlock Holmes at the center of this series and have it brought to life by Morris Chestnut in a fresh and unexpected take on the immortal doctor,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment. “Craig Sweeny’s bold new vision for the complex Dr. Watson deftly interweaves rich character storytelling with edge-of-your-seat medical mysteries.”

Watson’s pilot was written by Craig Sweeny, who worked on Elementary. He is slated to be the showrunner for the medical drama.


Are you going to be tracking Tracker?

Today, CBS released the first trailer for their anticipated show Tracker, which debuts after the Super Bowl on February 11th.

Before you watch the trailer, I suggest reading the network’s description of the series. Tracker stars Justin Hartley as Colter Shaw, a lone-wolf survivalist who roams the country as a reward seeker, using his expert tracking skills to help private citizens and law enforcement solve all manner of mysteries while contending with his own fractured family.

Now that you know what it is about and have seen the trailer, will you be watching?

While most of the daytime talk shows are back now that the WGA strike has ended, Drew Barrymore and Kelly Clarkson will not have their season premieres until October 16th. So what about The Talk?

They will be back this Monday on CBS with Sir Patrick Stewart as a guest. And he will be talking about his new memoir, Making It So.

Hosts Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Klootz, Sheryl Underwood, Jerry O’Connell, and Natalie Morales will be handing out giveaways all week that total nearly $2 million.

I might have to go and be in the audience, just so I can get one of those giveaways.


Dear CBS, Can we wait until after Halloween to talk about New Year’s Eve?
October 2nd, 2023 under CBS. [ Comments: none ]

Holidays keep coming earlier and earlier every year. But we really need to start setting some precedents. Because today, October 2nd, CBS announced their plans for New Year’s Eve.

I haven’t even finalized my Halloween plans, and they think I am even thinking about what I am going to be doing on December 31st. I haven’t even started planning for Thanksgiving and Christmas. And that is more important than NYE.

So, what are they doing to ring in the New Year? They asked Thomas Rhett, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Lainey Wilson to perform at New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash.

“Building on what we have established over the last two years by focusing on our artists, the fans and the vibrancy of downtown Nashville, this year’s lineup is shaping up to be our most exciting yet. We will celebrate 50 years of the iconic southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, the skyrocketing Lainey Wilson and country music superstar Thomas Rhett, with over a dozen artists and special guests still to be announced,” said executive producer Robert Deaton. “Nashville is quickly becoming THE destination for New Year’s Eve, and we are honored that CBS wants to help us continue to show off our music and incredible city with a new multi-year deal!”

Do you think that CBS announced their NYE plans too early? So, what do you think should be our holiday schedule for starting to plan for them, like we don’t prepare for Valentine’s Day until January 1st?
