Due to the Writers and Actors’ strikes, the 2023-2024 season was delayed. However, tonight at 8p, it is back with Night Court and Extended Family on NBC.

The Night Court sequel’s second season begins where it left off, and Roz (Marsha Warfield) coming before Judge Dan Fielding (John Laroquette) in New Orleans.

The two old friends catch up when he visits her in her jail cell. We find out that the former bailiff is now a private investigator. She convinces Dan to help her on a case in NYC, and he is reunited with his Night Court friends.

Since he left, they have been busy. Judge Abby Stone (Melissa Rauch) has been dating again now that she split from her fiancé. So, she is still willing to meddle in people’s personal lives, especially if it is about love.

Gurgs (Lacretta), the bailiff, spent some time in London, and she is more sophisticated because of that.

And then there is Olivia (India de Beaufort). She hasn’t done anything, so she comes up with a new carer. Can she do it?

And now that Dan is back in NYC, will he decide to stay? Why would he leave his dream job for a nightmare one? Abby is going to try her hardest to get him to stay.

And with the sitcom is back, and just in time!

Then at 8:30p, it is time to get to know divorcees Jim (Jon Cryer) and Julia (Abigail Spencer) better as they try to make their Extended Family better.

They divorced a year ago after 18 years of marriage, and they decided to split their time in their old place for their kids, Grace (Sofia Capanna) and Jimmy (Finn Sweeney).

Julia has moved on and is engaged to Trey (Donald Faison), who owns the Boston Celtics.

Now that they are engaged, Julia wants him to stay over when it is her week. However, Jim brings up that their constitution doesn’t allow that to happen until they are married.

Together, they will have to negotiate the contract. And that will be the first of a few issues they will have to deal with from their signed deal. What happens when Trey does something to break it and gets caught by Jim?

Will it tear their Extended Family apart or bring them closer together?

You will just have to watch to find out. That, and to get to know a new comedy that will make you laugh because it is so smart. And it is also relatable to so many exes.


Extended Family makes divorce funny
December 23rd, 2023 under Donald Faison, Jon Cryer, NBC. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight after the football game on NBC, we are going to meet our new Extended Family.

Jim (Jon Cryer) and Julia (Abigail Spencer) were a loving couple who had two kids, Grace (Sofia Capanna) and Jimmy Jr (Finn Sweeney). But after 17 years of marriage, they got a divorce.

And now they share custody of their kids. As in, the kids stay in one house, and their parents rotate who lives there every week.

Together, they are trying to keep things amicable between them. But there is a reason they are no longer married. And that is because they don’t get along and disagree about a lot of things.

Julia is an uptight, crisis publicist who fell in love with Trey (Donald Faison), and they are engaged. Trey is an MIT graduate who owns the Celtics. He is unlike Jim, who is unorganized and still very close to his father (Lenny Clark). Jim is also jealous of Trey for obvious reasons. But they are civilish to each other.

They are a dysfunctional Extended Family, but they are still a family. And they are trying to find a way to make their new normal work. And we get to see them fail and succeed at doing this.

Extended Family is the family-friendly sitcom we need now because the Cleavers and the Nelsons are a thing of the past.

And like those shows, this series brings the laughs because there is so much chemistry between the actors who brilliantly act what the writers gave them to do.

I have a feeling that Extended Family will be around for an extended time.

Extended Family moves to its regular night on Tuesday, January 2nd at 8:30p after Night Court.


NBC finds a second season for Found and The Irrational
November 29th, 2023 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

NBC was the only network who was smart enough to have live-action scripted series air in the fall. And it is paying for those freshman dramas.

That is because they announced today that they are picking up Found and Irrational for a second season.

“These shows are a testament to the incredibly passionate work of our showrunners Nkechi Okoro Carroll (‘Found’) and Arika Lisanne Mittman (‘The Irrational’), both of whom have executed their visions flawlessly,” said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Entertainment. “A huge thank you to the talented cast, producers and crews for their tireless commitment and dedication, which has clearly paid off with audiences making these series must-see television on both NBC and next day on Peacock.”

Congrats to both shows.

The rational decision NBC made about The Irrational
November 19th, 2023 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

While the networks are announcing the fake Fall schedules, NBC is announcing which series that debuted in the real Fall is getting additional episodes.

The Irrational, which stars Jesse L. Martin, is getting one additional episode. They filmed seven episodes before the WGA strike started in May.

But, according to Deadline, the news isn’t all good at the Peacock network. Lopez vs Lopez had its episode order cut from 13 to 10.

However, Night Court will still be filming 13 episodes for the revival’s second season.
