Fox announces what shows will be on their 2023-2024 schedule
May 15th, 2023 under Fox. [ Comments: none ]

There is a writers’ strike going on in Hollywood, and it probably won’t be the only one we have in the coming months. Therefore. Fox is planning for the directors and actors to walk the line too.

So, today they announced what shows will be on their schedule next season. However, they didn’t reveal when they will air.

It isn’t all bad because Kitchen Nightmares will return after a 9-year hiatus. Jamie Foxx might not have been healthy enough to do Beat the Shazam this summer. But he and his daughter, Corinne, will be hosting We Are Family, a music guessing game show.

Since they don’t have a lineup, here are the shows that we can expect: Dramas: 9-1-1: Lone Star, Accused, Alert: Missing Persons Unit, The Cleaning Lady, Doc, and Rescue: HI-Surf; Comedies: Animal Control, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, The Great North, Grimsburg, Krapopolis and The Simpsons; Unscripted: Farmer Wants a Wife, Hell’s Kitchen, I Can See Your Voice, Kitchen Nightmares, LEGO Masters, LEGO Masters: Celebrity Holiday Bricktacular, The Masked Singer, Name That Tune, Next Level Chef, Snake Oil, Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test and We Are Family.

Fox is still out of control with Animal Control

Last week, Fox cancelled Call Me Kat. And today, the network announced that they are still calling Animal Control. The hilarious sitcom stars animals of all types, Joel McHale, Michael Rowland, Vella Lovell, Ravi Patel, and Grace Palmer.

And did I say a variety of animals that change up every week? That is because the show is about an animal control office in Seattle that rescues exotic animals and domesticated pets.

“We are thrilled our viewers have responded to Animal Control as much as we did,” said Michael Thorn, President of Scripted Programming, FOX Entertainment. “The incredibly talented ensemble cast, led by Joel McHale, along with our creative team, Bob Fisher, Rob Greenberg, Dan Sterling and Tad Quill – not to mention a menagerie of wild animal method actors — have delivered a hilarious series that is sharp, witty, and warm, week after week.”

And Thorn isn’t lying! Animal Control is one of the few live-action comedies on Fox. But it feels animated because of the hijinx they get into during every call. That is what keeps me tuning it.

Well, not only the laughs but also the heart. Because not only are they co-workers, but they are also a work family who are always there for each other during the good and bad times. And they have more bad times than good. That is what makes comedies so funny.


Fox cancels all flights to Fantasy Island
May 9th, 2023 under Fox. [ Comments: none ]

Fox is preparing their fantasy schedule for the 2023-2024 season, and Fantasy Island is not on it.

The sequel to the 1977 series starred Roselyn Sánchez, Kiara Barnes, and John Gabriel, with Sánchez playing Mr. Roarke’s grand-niece.

Personally, since it is about me, I think they are making a mistake. It was an original show, even though it was a sequel, that was enjoyable to watch. And it was educational because each episode came with a little lesson. Just because you get what you want doesn’t mean you want it. And if you do, are you better off?

And I think it would’ve been better off and gotten a third season had Fox kept it as a summertime series instead of giving it a year and a half off and moving it to midseason. It was not an in-season show because it felt like summer.

Hopefully, a streamer will see this news and pick up the series for another season. Although, I have to admit yesterday’s episode ending felt like a perfect goodbye.


Call Me Kat’s 9 lives are over on Fox

Next week is the upfronts, and the broadcast television networks are making their decisions on which bubble shows will be back next season.

Today we found out that Call Me Kat which starred Mayim Bialik, Swoosie Kurtz, the late Leslie Jordan, Kyla Pratt, Julian Gant, and Cheyenne Jackson, will not be back for a fourth season.

“We are very proud of Call Me Kat,” a Fox rep told TVLine. “But, unfortunately, the audience response to it was not as strong as we had hoped. We are thankful for our partnership with Warner Bros. Television, That’s Wonderful Productions, Sad Clown Productions, BBC Studios, Mayim Bialik, Jim Parsons and the entire cast and crew for their work and dedication to Call Me Kat.”

I think they would’ve gotten another season if they featured the cats more. But since they didn’t, Jeopardy viewers might be getting more Bialik next season.


Cheers to Animal Control for an enjoyable season!

Tonight at 9p on Fox is the season finale of Animal Control, and what a purrfect season it has been.

I wish I could say it ends on a happy note, but it doesn’t. Frank (Joel McHale), Emily (Vella Lovell), Shred (Michael Rowland), Patel (Ravi V. Patel), Victoria (Grace Palmer), Templeton (Gerry Dee), and Rick (Kevin Bigley) get together for a funeral. Sadly beloved C38 has passed away, and Frank is not taking the cougar’s death well.

He is not the only one who is not handling things well. Shred is ready to dump his girlfriend for Emily. But then he finds out that Emily is considering dating Rick. So what is he going to do?

He is not the only one who gets news he didn’t want, as does Patel. And Patel’s news will change his life.

And then there is Victoria. She doesn’t have any life-altering changes tonight. However, she does help everyone through their problems and throws them a party to say goodbye to C38.

And that is what makes Animal Control so special. It is a show about a family, a work family, but a family nonetheless. So they are there for each other through the good times and the bad. And we are there for them all. That, and the animals. Like the cute cats in tonight’s episode!

So tune in tonight and then watch the season again on Hulu or the Fox app. Because the more people that watch it, the better the chance that Fox will give it a second season. And it deserves another one over Call Me Kat and Welcome to Flatch.
