NBC reveals their fall schedule
June 16th, 2020 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

NBC/Instagram


Last month, NBC was supposed to announce its fall schedule. However, the coronavirus put a wrench in their plans. Now that production is starting up, the network is finally ready to show us what we are going to watch and when to in a few months.

Like all of the other broadcast networks, they are playing it safe. They are only changing up one night and it is Thursday. Gone is a two-hour block of comedies. Instead, it is going to be two hours of Law & Order: SVU. The mothership and its spinoff with Chris Meloni called Law & Order: Organized Crime.

The only other change is The Voice is bringing back Gwen Stefani instead of Nick Jonas. How nauseating it is to have the No Doubt singer and her boyfriend Blake Shelton on the show again. Couldn’t they find anyone else?

As you can see the schedule is pretty safe:

MONDAY
8-10 P.M. — The Voice
10-11 P.M. — Manifest*

TUESDAY
8-9 P.M. — The Voice
9-10 P.M. — This Is Us*
10-11 P.M. — New Amsterdam*

WEDNESDAY
8-9 P.M. — Chicago Med*
9-10 P.M. — Chicago Fire*
10-11 P.M. — Chicago P.D.*

THURSDAY
8-8:30 P.M. — Superstore*
8:30-9 P.M. — Brooklyn Nine-Nine
9-10 P.M. — Law & Order: SVU*
10-11 P.M. — LAW & ORDER: ORGANIZED CRIME*

FRIDAY
8-9 P.M. – The Blacklist*
9-11 P.M — Dateline NBC*

NBC and ABC pick up and cancel a few of their shows
June 16th, 2020 under ABC, NBC. [ Comments: none ]


Believe it or not, the networks are still fine-tuning their 2020-2021 lineups. They have been able to delay their decisions because the coronavirus pandemic threw everything up in the air. However, NBC and ABC decided to let several shows know if they will be on the lineup when there is one.

Over at ABC, For Life did not get the chair. However, The Baker and The Beauty’s goose was cooked. At least the couple had their happy ending before the network decided the sweet show didn’t deserve a second season.

NBC is OK with letting the passengers of Flight 828 not knowing their fates for another season. That is because the show, about a plane that lands five years later with all the passengers looking the same as they did the day they took off, has more stories to tell. Sadly for Indebted, Sunnyside, Bluff City Law, their stories are all done.

What do you think about the network’s choices? I was really hoping we would have gotten more from Sunnyside and The Baker and the Beauty. Hey ABC, some words of advice, stop picking up share ows about Latinx families in Miami, that are really enjoyable, if you just going to make them one and done. I don’t want to get attched again.

The day the music didn’t die for Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist
June 12th, 2020 under Alex Newell, NBC, Peter Gallagher, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen. [ Comments: 2 ]


It has been a month since NBC was supposed to announce their lineup for the 2020-2021 season, but they haven’t announced it yet because everything is up in the air because of the coronavirus pandemic. Several of their shows were left waiting to find out if they would still have a home on the network.

Good Girls was told they things are still good with the bad girls. The fat lady sang for Perfect Harmony. The Bone Collector killed Lincoln Rhyme. Manifest is still not sure if it crashed and burned or if it will land safely on their schedule. Indebted is waiting to find out if they indebted to NBC.

Finally, there is Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. Did the music die for last season’s best new show? NOPE! They will be around to sing for another day, which is a good thing for the peacock network. If they had silenced their actors’ voices, then we would have gone nuts. As in found something to send them like when we sent CBS peanuts to save Jericho. We could have sent them cereal because of the cereal bar that is at her office. But we don’t have to do that because the series is coming back!

If you missed out on the musical dramedy when it aired, I highly suggest you watch it now on NBC’s app, OnDemand or Hulu. ZEP is about workaholic programmer Zoey (Jane Levy) whose life changes while she is stuck in an MRI machine during an earthquake. When Zoey gets out of it, she now has the ability to hear people’s heart songs. As in, she is the only one who can see them sing and dance. Something that seems like a curse to her, and a dream come true for us viewers.

ZEP also stars Skylar Astin, Alex Newell, John Clarence Stewart, Peter Gallagher(?), Mary Steenburgen, and Lauren Graham.

Now I am off to watch to some more of the amazing song and dance numbers from the first season like the above one that was shot in one take. You read that right, the finale, not the swan song, was done in one take. Now you know you want to see more, don’t you?

I just want to know if we should be reading too much into her five last words of the season, “They day the music died.”

The Bone Collector claimed NBC’s Lincoln Rhyme
June 11th, 2020 under Hulu, NBC. [ Comments: none ]


NBC has decided not to pick up the police procedural Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector for another season. The show was based on the book series The Bone Collector and starred Grimm’s Russell Hornsby. The drama moved slowly but doesn’t mean it was not interesting to watch. It is a shame we won’t find out what happened next.

NBC is not the only one swinging the ax. Hulu has decided not to renew Harlots and Reprisal.

Can these four celebrities escape Jack Black’s house on Red Nose Day?
May 21st, 2020 under Ben Stiller, Courteney Cox, Friends (cast), Jack Black, NBC. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight at 8p on NBC, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, Adam Scott, and Ben Stiller go to Jack Black’s house for Red Nose Day, and it might be the last time we ever see them. That is because they are taking part in the special Celebrity Escape Room.

The four of them will have to work together to solves ten puzzles in three different rooms. If they do that, then not only will they raise a lot of money to help children affected by COVID-19, they will also escape Jack Black and his billion-dollar ponytail.

The first room they enter is a bedroom with a lot of artifacts from the ’80s and their pasts. Will they be able to find out which items will help to unlock the door that will take them to their next adventure?

That place is a high school hallway. This location is not as easy as the first room. Things get even worse for Cox, who finds herself trapped in a room within the room, and the boys don’t do anything to free her. Eventually, Black guides them on the way that frees them all and takes them to the prom.

That’s right. It is time for them to go to biggest school dance of their lifetime. Once they are there, they will take part in a lifesize game of Simon that is harder to play then they thought.

Will this game ever end for them? Only when the fat lady sings. Since there are no fat ladies, the four of them will have to do a song together. Sadly, for Kudrow, she is not familiar with the popular tune.

Does that mean they will be stuck there forever like so many celebrities before them? You just have to tune in to find out. You also get to learn why we haven’t seen certain actors in a long time. They are being held captive in Black’s game.

Celebrity Escape Room is so much fun to watch; I hope that NBC turns this one-episode special into a series. I would love to see Black ask his Jumanji co-stars The Rock and Kevin Hart to do it. You know only one will survive if he does…
