Fox blesses Bless the Harts with a second season
October 18th, 2019 under Fox. [ Comments: none ]


Even though Bless the Harts has only aired 3 episodes, Fox announced today that it has picked up the animated show for a second season. Why so early? Animated shows need a longer time to get produced like a year. Bless the Harts stars Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Jillian Bell, Ike Barinholtz and Kumail Nanjiani.

Fox’s only other new fall show Prodigal Son was The first new show to get a full season pickup is… a full season earlier this month.

The first new show to get a full season pickup is…
October 7th, 2019 under Fox. [ Comments: none ]


We are two weeks into the new broadcast TV season and one of the networks picked up a show for a full season. That show is…Prodigal Son.

The decision makes sense because it is doing well after 9-1-1. However, without that lead-in, I expect their numbers to drop. Not that it is a bad show, but Fox thinks just because a show does well after a highly rated show, it will do well on its one. That has not worked since Empire followed American Idol.

When it comes to what show will be next? I think it will be one or all of the CBS’s new comedies, but not for a few weeks. Unless The CW needs to keep production moving quickly on Batgirl, then that will be next. However, I hope CBS picks up Evil first and NBC considers giving a full season to Bluff City Law. I also think ABC’s Mixed-ish will get the bottom 9 order at some point.

What new shows do you want to be around for the full season?

Almost Family is a different type of family drama
October 2nd, 2019 under Fox. [ Comments: 2 ]


Almost Family debuts at 9p on Fox tonight and it is touching family drama about finding loved ones later in life.

Julia Bechley (Brittany Snow) is an only child who will do anything for her father (Timothy Hutton). She gave up med school to help him run his top-notch fertility clinic. Even though she did that for him, he does not appreciate her. Therefore, when the episode starts out, she meets a guy she just swiped right on at a bar and sleeps with him in the bathroom. That is all she really wanted out of him and he did not mind.

Then she goes to an event honoring her dad. While he is being honored, it is revealed he used his sperm to help father several of the babies that were made at his fertility clinic. How many? Even he does not know.

The news is too much for him, and he has a heart attack. Which is good for him because he has a place to hide from everyone.

While it is good for him, it is bad for Julia. She has to deal with all of the repercussions of what her father did. The only thing she can do is offer free DNA tests to anyone who wants to find out if her father fathered them.

One of the women who thinks she might be Julia’s sister is Edie (Megalyn Echikunwoke). They used to be best friends until Edie started dating Julia’s boyfriend and married him. Now that hate each other. Since Edie and her husband are lawyers, Julia swallows her pride and goes to them for help. Slowly the two women will become friends. Then again it helps that they just learned they are also half-sisters.

They find out they also have a third sister and Roxy Doyle (Emily Osment) is an Olympic Gold medalist. Her parents use her for her stardom and she is so over it. Therefore, when she finds out she might have other family members out there, she runs to meet them.

As soon as Roxy meets Julia, she acts like they are sisters. So much so, she winds up moving in with her big sister.

Julia went from being an only child to having two sisters and the same for Edie and Roxy. The three of them are going to adjust to being family because no one else knows what they are going through but them. That and they all need each other because their lives are not perfect. They each have their own problems and thankfully they are no longer alone to deal with them. They each have a sister to help them get through it.

Besides dealing with that, they still have to deal with their dad. He is still dealing with his heart attack and all the fallout from the reveal. Julia does not know if she wants him in her life, Edie doesn’t and Roxy does.

It is a lot to handle for the three of them, but they have each other. And we have this show. A sweet drama that proves family is family no matter how they came into your life.

Animation Domination dominates Sundays again
September 29th, 2019 under Fox, Seth MacFarlane, The Simpsons. [ Comments: none ]


It is time for us all to be a little more animated again because Fox Sundays are back doing what they do best. Making us laugh with their animated shows.

The Simpsons start it off at 8p. Homer and Bart go viral and they become the biggest thing on the internet. How will they handle their newfound celebrity status? How long until they mess it up?

Talking about messing things up, perfect student Lisa gets in trouble tonight. So much so, she is sentenced to detention. When a corporate entity buys detention, Lisa decides to fight it. Because that is what she does.

The Simpsons, at 31, might be older than a lot of their viewers, but this show never gets old.


Then at 8:30p, we get to meet Bless The Harts. This is not an easy show to describe, but it is a show about family.

Jenny Hart (Kristen Wiig) lives with her mother Betty (Maya Rudolph) and daughter Violet (Jillian Bell). As if three women living together in tight small house, struggling to pay bills, is not hard enough, her boyfriend also lives with them.

That is enough to make Jenny go crazy. Instead, it makes the girl from High Point, NC have conversations with Jesus. That Jesus.

Maybe one way to describe it is King of the Hill meets Bob’s Burgers.

https://www.youtube.com/wxatch?v=9oUOWxNQ1iU
Which gets us to Bob’s Burgers that moves to 9p. Bob decides to do something very special for Linda for their wedding anniversary. Since he never bought her a ring when they got engaged, he decides to give her one now. He does not want her to find it, so he hides it in a secret place.

However, it is not that secret because their children find it. Gene decides to try it on, and it gets stuck on his finger. It does not want to come off, so he decides it leave it on when they go to the water park,

What happens to your fingers when they are wet for a long period of time? They get skinnier and the ring falls off. Since they were all over the park, they have no idea where it fell off.

Will they be able to find it or is Bob’s romantic gift lost forever? You will want to tune in for a very sweet episode.


Finally at 9:30p, the night is not over until the fat guy sings and Peter Griffin is singing on Family Guy
tonight.

But first, he has a heart attack when his bosses reveal that someone is going to be fired at work. Turns out it was just a panic attack, but it is way a really bad one. His doctors tell him to get some relaxation, so he goes on a cruise with several Soft Rock singers from the ’70s like Kenny Loggins and Hall & Oates.

Everything is going fine until their perfect cruise turns into the Posideon Adventure. If you have never seen that movie? Where have you been because there are three versions of it? Sorry, now four!

Anyways, out of all of tonight’s episodes, this one had me laughing the hardest. In fact, it is the funniest sitcom episode of the week on broadcast. I know this because I saw them all except Mom and Bless This House.

Death comes to Chicago Med and Fire, Masked Singer is ready to unmask
September 25th, 2019 under Dick Wolf, Fox. [ Comments: none ]


Chicago Med is back on NBC tonight and not everyone is going to make it to the credits tonight. The episode starts off with Will (Nick Gehlfuss) rushing a bloodied Natalie (Torrey DeVitto) into the ER after their car accident. She is unresponsive and doctors are doing all they can to save her. Will looks like he is OK, but turns out he was more injured than anyone thought.

Dr. Rhodes (Colin Donnell) is dealing with his dad’s death and the hospital thinks it is murder. Because of the relationship he had with his father, they think he did it. They start an investigation and he is their #1 suspect.

Maggie (Marlyne Barrett) is not dealing with the fact that she has cancer and it has metastasized. Sharon (S. Epatha Merkerson) insists that she gets it looked at. Turns out nurses are just as bad patients as doctors.

Finally, Dr. Charles (Oliver Platt) comes back after his wedding to his dying ex-wife to help everyone through the madness. Little did he know he was going to also help everyone deal with a death of one of their own.

Who dies? You know I cannot tell you! But I can tell you it is worth the watch.


Then at 9p on Chicago Fire, the show picks up with them still fighting the fire from the season finale. One of their own is critically injured and they are not going to survive. That person’s death is going to rock the firehouse. Their death will mean something different to all of them, and they will all handle it differently.

To make matters worse, headquarters is going to see if Casey (Jesse Spencer) acted criminally during the fire. They will launch an investigation, what will they find out?

Get the tissues ready because you are going to need them for a heart-wrenching episode.


If you want to laugh, then you are going to want to tune in for The Masked Singer. Tonight at 8p, the first 8 singers are going to sing and two will be unmasked.

The competition starts off with the Butterfly vs the Egg and the Skeleton vs the Thingamajig. The loser of each battle will go up against each other and one will be revealed.

After that reveal it is time for the Ladybug vs the Rottweiler (my cat’s favorite) and the Tree vs the Ice Cream. Like the first round, one of them will take off their costume for the last time.

While the 8 of them show us that they can really sing, the judges: Robin Thicke, Ken Jeong, Nichole Scherzinger and Jenny McCarthy try to guess who is underneath those totally awesome masks. At one point, someone guesses Marshmallow and the other judges are like how would we know what he is looks because he already wears a mask.

The clues are harder, but I suck at guessing. Although, I think I know who one of them is. However. I am sure I am wrong because I never get it right until midway through the show.

Will you do better than me? Tune in for a show where the singers are just as amazing as what they are wearing. On that note, host Nick Cannon is wearing diamond shoes that are worth $2.4 million. The contestants who can barely see anything in those oversized heads, better make sure not to step on his feet. It will cost them more than to fix his shoes than what they are getting paid to be on the show.
