[ # ] Lots of cancellations and some renewals!
May 10th, 2017 under ABC, Fox, NBC, Primetime TV, The CW

Tis the season that television lovers hate. That is when they find out which of their favorite Broadcast shows will be back and which one won’t be. For me, I fall in to the latter category and today several shows fell in to it too.

Over at ABC, the good news is that Modern Family will be back for not one but two more seasons. Which should be its last two, hopefully. Creativity wise it has been going down hill for while. Then we have American Idol’s first causality. Even though Last Man Standing does better than most of ABC’s other comedies and it airs on Friday nights, ABC cancelled the show after 6 seasons. But don’t worry Black-ish will be back for another season as if it wasn’t going to be.

CBS was quiet, while its sister station The CW renewed iZombie and The Originals for a fourth season. I am getting brains on the grill in honor of the pickup. Maybe awards shows will finally start to recognize Rose McIver who is the most underrated actress. While I wait to announce the new shows until next week, I have to tell you Dynasty is coming back and I am preparing to love to hate it every week.

Fox made my day because they picked up The Last Man on Earth for another season, so we will find out what Baby Phil Tandy Miller is going to look like. Will it have eyebrows and half a hair of head. Don’t send out the Bat signal because they also renewed Gotham is coming back too.

NBC was very vocal. They picked up Chicago Fire, Chicago PD and Chicago Med, but have not announced what they are going to with Chicago Justice. They did tell us that Timeless’ time is up. They also said that Jennifer Hudson is joining Miley Cyrus, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on The Voice. On a positive note, she won’t be on the American Idol reboot.

In case you were wondering why I have a song from Jesus Christ Superstar at the top of my post, that is because it is getting the live treatment this Easter on NBC. I am hoping they cast Josh Groban as Jesus, Vanessa Hudgens as Mary Magdalene and I can’t believe I am saying this but Taylor Hicks as Pontius Pilate. Who do you want to cast in the lead roles?
