Cops is cancelled because of bad boys
June 9th, 2020 under Paramount Network. [ Comments: none ]


After 32 seasons and three networks, Paramount Network has decided to pull the plug on Cops. A rep for the network told Variety, “‘Cops’ is not on the Paramount Network and we don’t have any current or future plans for it to return.”

The trade says the decision comes due to everything that been going on since the murder of George Floyd. People don’t want to watch Cops now.

Cops and The Simpsons both debuted on Fox the same year. Who knew 1989 was a good year for television?

At least if Lady Gaga and Glenn Close lost, they lost to a great speech
February 24th, 2019 under Lady Gaga, Oscars, Paramount Network. [ Comments: none ]


I will be honest with you, I have not seen any of the films nominated for the Oscars tonight (I tried a few and got bored). Therefore, I don’t know who deserved it and who did not.

I was under the impression, like most, that Glenn Close was going to win Best Actress. If not her, then Lady Gaga. Well, they both lost. Olivia Colman won for The Favourite. Even though she was not the favorite to win, her speech was the winner of the night. It was worth her winning just for that.

BTW Lady Gaga’s speech for winning Best Song was not that Shallow. I was crying with her as we watched as A Star Was Born This Way!

Paramount Network is finally airing Heathers unless…
October 4th, 2018 under Paramount Network, Shannen Doherty. [ Comments: none ]


Paramount Network was going to air Heathers in March, and then the Parkland shooting happened on Valentine’s Day. It was then rescheduled to run for July, but then there was another deadly school shooting. Finally, in July, they decided they were not going to air the remake of the 1989 movie.

Or so we thought. Today, Shannen Doherty announced the postponed, postponed, cancelled show will be airing 9 of its 10 episodes beginning on October 25 and ending on the 29th.

Why the change of heart? They heavily edited the episodes, so it will be suitable for air during these times. Let’s just hope and pray there is not another reason to postpone/cancel the show again. Because that would be mean there was another school shooting and we never need another one of those.

No word if they will go ahead with the second season that was almost completed in the writing room.

Younger moves to Paramount Network, American Woman cancelled
September 5th, 2018 under Paramount Network, TV Land. [ Comments: none ]


It is a busy day over at Paramount Network. They announced today that Younger will be moving from its sister station TV Land over to them for season six in the spring.

Not only that, they picked up a new series from Younger’s creator Darren Star that will debut in the summer. Emily in Paris is about a woman who “heads to the city of lights in this dramedy centered on Emily, a driven twenty-something American woman from the Midwest, who moves to Paris for an unexpected job opportunity, tasked with bringing an American point of view to a venerable French marketing firm.”

Finally, they cancelled American Woman, the ’70s set dramedy that starred Alicia Silverstone. This is technically the first show to get cancelled on the new network. I say technically because they never wound up airing the small screen adaptation of Heathers due to multiple school shootings.

At least Yellowstone with Kevin Costner is a hit for them and will be back with a second season.

Nobodies go back to being nobodies
June 24th, 2018 under Melissa McCarthy, Paramount Network, TV Land. [ Comments: none ]


Melissa McCarthy produced sitcom Nobodies was given a second season renewal on TV Land. Then it was moved to its sister station Paramount Network. After 2 airings on its new home, it was returned to its original one. I guess neither liked it, so according to The Hollywood Reporter, it was cancelled.

Personally, I am surprised it was picked up for a second season because it was one of the unfunniest comedies I have ever seen.
