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.

American Woman is not as groovy as the ’70s
June 7th, 2018 under Freeform, Paramount Network. [ Comments: none ]


Alicia Silverstone is once again living in Beverly Hills, but tonight at 10p on Paramount Network she is doing it in the ’70s. American Woman is not Claire Horowitz grown up because she would have chosen better than this.

Remember in 2008, when CBS took us back to the Disco era with the drama Swingtown? All you wanted to do was put on your boogie shoes and travel back in time? This show will not cause you to feel the same way.

Bonnie (Silvertone) is a rich Beverly Hills wife, who is expected to be just that. Her husband (James Tupper) wants her to stay home and take care of him and their children. Even if he is messing around behind her back. When she finds that out, she kicks him out of the house. Shortly after she does, she finds out he has embezzled all of their money away and she is broke.

Now she has to get a job and support herself. In a time when women are first entering the job force. How will she handle her new life going from a Beverly Hills Housewife to a working single mom?

She still has her small group of friends, but what about the ones who just pretended to like her when she had money. Will they want to know her now that she does not?

When it comes to her friends, Kathleen (Mena Suvari) wants to work in the movies. She will do anything to get that job. Diana (Jennifer Bartels) works in a bank, but all of the men keep getting ahead while she is stuck in the same job. She wants to be treated equal, but her boss does not agree.

This is a time when women were finally getting out of the house and earning their own ways. This is the story of three women hoping to the same.

I wish I could say more positive things about it, but somehow this half-hour drama makes the groovy ’70s look absolutely dull. Even the clothes are a downer and they should be upper like the drugs they are taking back then. There is sex, drugs and Rock’n’Roll on this show and even that cannot save American Woman.

I thought of something positive to say. As much as I hated American Woman, I liked it so much better than Freeform’s Cloak & Dagger that debuts at 8p tonight. I cannot even review the teen drama because after watching two episodes, I still have absolutely no idea what is going on on the show.
