Fall 2017 Primetime Grid – how does it all shake out?

Now that the big-5 have released their 2017 Fall schedule, here’s a look at it all in one spot, in the 2017 Fall grid (click to enlarge/print) – New shows are shaded in green; all times are Eastern/Pacific. Looking at the networks side by side, what night do you think will cause the biggest issue for your DVR? For me, it might be Wednesdays at 8 with 4 shows that I watch regularly!

First Look: CBS New Fall 2017 Series Trailers 

CBS released their Fall schedule earlier today and not much changed.  But they do offer us a few new shows, and they released trailers for those shows today. Quick reactions?  Zoe Perry was the PERFECT decision for YOUNG SHELDON (though I’m not sure making the show was a good decision); lots of dramas look the same as other dramas we’ve seen again and again on CBS (and in the case of the Piv’s new show, ON FOX, THIS SEASON).  Check

CBS 2017 Fall Schedule – YOUNG SHELDON with Old(er) Sheldon on Thursday

CBS announced their Fall schedule this morning with no big surprises. A Monday line up before football and one after; same with Thursday, where YOUNG SHELDON will pair with old-er Sheldon after football. Otherwise, pretty consistent.  They are hoping Shemar Moore can help them break their Thursday @ 10 curse with SWAT – ELEMENTARY, MAN WITH A PLAN, and CODE BLACK are coming back at the midseason mark – Here is their schedule – all times Eastern and Pacific; new

Update before UpFronts 2017

Whew, the past few nights have brought with them a whirlwind of activity – cancellations, renewals (some surprising in both categories), and new series pickups.  Going into what’s usually Bloody Friday (the Friday night before UpFronts when shows find their fates and book their tickets to NYC), here’s a look at where things stand for the big five networks (and be sure to bookmark THIS page for all updates made as news rolls out)! NBC has made some moves, but

Tony Shalhoub on his new series BRAINDEAD

Tony Shalhoub, known to longtime TV fans as Antonio from WINGS, Monk from, well, MONK, and a wide variety of critically well-received roles, brings his talent to CBS’ latest Summer series, BRAINDEAD, as Red Wheatus, a Republican Senator who falls “victim” to what is eating the minds of some of Washington’s best and brightest. While his affliction (brain-bugs) may seem dire, what it helps him become overall? It’s maybe not as bad as it sounds. BRAINDEAD is the brainchild of

Creators Robert and Michelle King preview BRAINDEAD on CBS

Last week, a group of TV press met in NYC with the cast and creative teams behind CBS’ Summer shows. The first video from that CBS Summer Press series is an interview with THE GOOD WIFE creators Robert and Michelle King. Their new series, BRAINDEAD, a completely off-the-wall show about brain-eating alien ants who came to Earth with a mission (that we don’t know just yet), and how it impacts the politicians in Washington, D.C., during a government shut down,

First Look: CBS New Series Trailers for 2016/2017

CBS announced their new fall schedule yesterday and with their announcement, released the trailers for their new shows (except for DOUBT for some reason which I’ve come to learn stars Dule Hill, and I’m there for that all day).  Take a look – what piques your interest? KEVIN CAN WAIT (Kevin James is a retired dad who fills his day with guy-time; then his daughter moves home with her nebbish fiance.  Erinn Hayes plays his put-upon wife) – PURE GENIUS

All times Eastern and PM. Sunday: 8-9 – NCIS: LOS ANGELES 9-10 – MADAM SECRETARY 10-11 –

CBS Answers Long-Awaited Renewal Questions

As CBS unveiled its new series for the 2015-16 television season’s lineup at the Upfronts in New York City, it announced the renewal of 22 returning favorites. Among them were the Lenkov/Orci/Kurtzman-driven Hawaii Five-0 and the Tom Selleck helmed Blue Bloods, both returning for a fifth season, both airing on Friday night. Because of the ratings dip for both these series, particularly Hawaii Five-0, a return was questionable. However, with a 9.48 million viewership average for the season, Five-0 (the
