Rel and The Gifted were not gifted another season
April 18th, 2019 under Fox, Marvel Comics. [ Comments: none ]


While no show has officially been cancelled this season, the networks are starting to announce what shows will not be back in the fall. Fox got it started by not renewing Rel and The Gifted for another season. The news is no surprise because both shows did poorly in the ratings.

Lil Rel had this to say about the cancellation, “I want to thank all the loyal 2 million plus people that tuned in every week to my show… I’m so proud of what we did and it was a dream come true… I got a chance to not only create a show based off my material and some real life events I got to work and create magic with my friends… God is so good and I’m truly blessed… Thanks again for the huge opportunity and it’s on to the next one… I learned a lot and it’s still a huge accomplishment for me to pull this off… I wanted to make a dramatic comedy with heart and I did that… I know I made you proud Mom!!!!!! #REL”

There are reports that Marvel is going to shop The Gifted around, but I doubt anyone will want it. After 2 seasons of low ratings and no buzz, I cannot see anyone being like I want to blow money on it. It is no Lucifer, Brooklyn Nine-Nine or Designated Survivor.

It will be interesting to see what shows, if any, will be saved by someone else this year.

No need to call 9-1-1 or see The Resident, both show were picked up!
March 25th, 2019 under Fox, Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: none ]


Fox announced today that its two Monday night dramas, The Resident and 9-1-1 will be back for a third season. While the news is not a surprise, what took them so long to renew them is. Then again, I could be biased because I watch both of them.

In fact, tonight’s episode of 9-1-1 at 9p is one not to miss. Last week when the show left off, Chimney’s (Kenneth Choi) girlfriend (Jennifer Love Hewitt) came face-to-face with her abusive ex (Hewitt’s real-life husband Brian Hallisay). I could tell you that tonight’s episode picks up where that one left off, but I would be lying to you. It is actually about Chimney’s backstory.

Tonight, we find out how his character became a firefighter/paramedic. He was doing something else when he got the calling. Then, he, along with someone close to him, went to the academy together. After they graduated they went to two different houses and got very different treatment. Chimney’s was much more of a rookie’s, but in the long run, it helped to make him the first responder he became. That and something else.

It was not an easy road for him, but what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.

What this episode means for the future of Maddie (Hewitt) and Chimney, I guess we will find out next week.

More celebrities will get to be Masked Singers
January 30th, 2019 under Fox. [ Comments: 1 ]


For months, Fox teased us with the singing competition The Masked Singer. When it actually debuted, it could have gone either way in the ratings. Well, the show is a hit, so it makes sense that Fox would ask them to do another season.

If you are one of the few who does not know about it, you are missing out. The show has twelve celebrities who dress up in costumes from head to toe and compete by singing their hearts out. Each week, one of them is unmasked or as other shows would say are eliminated. We do not know who they are until the unmasking, so we are left guessing along with the judges Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke and host Nick Cannon.

The press release does not make it clear if those five will be back next season, but I hope they at least get rid of Jenny McCarthy. She is just so annoying and adds nothing. Who actually likes her besides Donnie Wahlberg?

There is a lot to watch tonight!
January 14th, 2019 under ABC, Fox, Game Show Network, Joey Fatone, Mark-Paul Gosselaar. [ Comments: none ]


There is a lot of good stuff to watch tonight and the night starts early, 5:30p exact That is when Joey Fatone tries his hand of hosting a game show on GSN.

Common Knowledge asks 2 teams of three rounds of questions that should be common knowledge and the winning team goes home with $10,000. Sounds easy, but it is harder than you think. For the first round, each member guesses which of the multiple choices are the correct answer and they get more points for each member that gets it right. For the second round the whole team has to guess the answer as one. Thus, they get more points in this one, so anything can happen and anyone can win. Now it is time for the final round and they have to answer 7 answers correctly without getting one wrong. If they do it, they go home with 5 digits. If not, they go home with 0.

Not only is Common Knowledge fun to play along with, it is also fun to watch Fatone hosting it. He is a natural born game show host.


Then at 8p but over at Fox, The Resident is back. The episode picks up a little after the fall season finale.

Conrad (Matt Czuchry) and Nic (Emily VanCamp) are running into the hospital to find out how his father is doing during emergency life-saving surgery.

There is also still fallout around Chastain Park Memorial from Lane (Melina Kanakaredes) giving patients chemo treatment even though they did not need it. To make matters worse, she has just been released from jail for the murder of one of them. The first thing she does is visit Dr. Bell (Bruce Greenwood). He says that he is no longer going to help her and she blackmails him with something from his past. What is he going to do about it?

Meanwhile, Devon (Manish Dayal) is dealing with the fallout of his own after calling off his wedding at the wedding because he has feelings for another woman.

This is just a few of the lively moments from the episode where not everyone will make it to the end of the episode alive. Who dies and what ramifications will there be?


Then at 9p, The Passage debuts on Fox about how the ultimate cure can kill us all. Project Noah has come up with a cure that can rid the World of all diseases or it can it wipe out the human race. They have been testing it out on adults, but some of them have been turning into vampire like creatures. Therefore, they need a child to do the test on.

Amy Bellafonte (Saniyya Sidney), a young girl whose mother just died of a drug overdose and is now all alone in the World, is chosen as the subject. Project Noah hires Agent Brian Wolgast (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) to protect her. He lost a child of his own and feels a bond with Amy. Thus, he cannot let her be a test subject, and tries to do everything he can to protect her. Even if it means risking his own life.

He is on the run all by himself and Project Noah is using their best people to capture them. Can he save this girl that might the answer to all of our diseases or will they be caught and end the World? Each week, we will watch the two people who could save the World try to save themselves. All while learning what happens when we try to play Gd as we see the effects the cure has had on past test subjects.


Then at 10p, The Good Doctor is back on ABC. The episode picks up exactly where it left off with an unknown virus quarantining some of the doctors in the ER.

Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) is on the floor distracted by the sound of a buzzing lightbulb. Morgan (Fiona Gubelmann) is operating on a man’s bowel and needs his help. She cannot talk him out of it because she is busy with her hands in a man’s body, but she will try.

While they are doing that, Alex (Will Yun Lee) is watching his teenage son suffer an asthma attack from outside the ER and he cannot get in. Eventually, he breaks in and saves his son and calms Shaun down. That will last for just a few minutes because the virus is taking its toll on Allegra (Tamlyn Tomita). If they don’t figure out what the virus is soon, she will die. With death comes birth as Shaun and Morgan prepare to deliver a baby to a woman who is only 36 weeks along. Talk about getting a whole year of medical school in just one day. That is what they get, we get to watch it all and find out who will get out of there alive. Someone has to or we will not have a show.

Talking about life and death, Dr. Glassman (Richard Schiff) will find out if he still has cancer. Shaun was supposed to take him, so Lea (Paige Spara) has taken him instead. He is expecting the worse, and Lea asks him all about his disease. It is good for him to be with someone who is not a doctor who can help him look at the patient side of life. How will their wait together change both of their lives? That is if he has one.

It is an intense episode but shows why this show was last year’s break out it hit.

Did Gene Simmons reveal who the Alien is on The Masked Singer?
January 10th, 2019 under Fox, KISS. [ Comments: none ]


Gene Simmons posted a photo of the Alien from The Masked Singer and said, “I was Masked Singer long before this Alien landed.”

If you watched the show, then you know that the female contestant grew up in the public eye. While I think it is La Toya Jackson, some are guessing it is someone from the Kardashians and others ponder if it is one of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s daughters. However, the singer from Kiss had a reality show, and that means his daughter, Sophie, grew up in front of the cameras.

Is she the Alien? To see what she said, then click here!
