[ # ] TV Roundup: Who’s hosting the Oscars? Who’s leaving Law & Order? Which show moves to the Fall?
November 15th, 2023 under Dick Wolf, Jimmy Kimmel, Oscars, Ryan Murphy

ABC and AMPAS announced today that Jimmy Kimmel will be back to host the Oscars for a fourth time on March 10th.

“After his triumphant return to the Oscars stage last year, we are honored to have Jimmy back to guide us through one of the most beloved celebrations in entertainment. He is such a valuable member of our Disney family, and we could not be more appreciative of him and his entire team,” said Craig Erwich, president of ABC Entertainment, Hulu and Disney Branded Television Streaming Originals. “We are also grateful to have the multitalented Molly back on the producing team, and we have no doubt that this year will be a spectacular night celebrating the biggest films of the year.”

I don’t know if I would want him back. Weird things happen when he does it. First, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced that the wrong movie won Best Picture in 2017. Then, last year, Will Smith slapped Chris Rock? What is going to happen in 2024? Only time will tell.

Law & Order is getting ready to get back into production, but they are going to do it with one less detective. That is because TV Line reports that Jeffrey Donovan is leaving the series due to creative differences, aka he got a Burn Notice.

Producers are looking for a replacement for this season’s 13 episodes. I am sure there are a lot of New York actors who will jump at the chance. I hope they go with a female like Jill Hennessy.

Donovan is not the first actor to leave the show. His TV partner, Anthony Anderson, opted not to return for the second season of the revival.

Due to the strikes, broadcast television lost half a season. Therefore, not all of the shows will be airing in the first part of 2024. Deadline is reporting that 9-1-1: Lone Star’s 5th season will not debut until the Fall. And this season will only be 12 episodes.

Lone Star is not the only show Fox is moving. New dramas Doc and Rescue: Hi-Surf are also waiting to make their debuts. And I am sure these series will not be alone. CBS already announced that Matlock and Poppa’s House will also be delayed until next season.
