CBS Eyeing Charmed Reboot: Magical or Madenning? Take Our Poll!


EVERYONE is doing a reboot/remake. SERIOUSLY??? Have we truly run out of original ideas? I need some exec to take a risk on something new. Just because people loved it before doesn’t mean they are going to love it now. See Ironside, Knight Rider, Melrose Place, Bionic Woman, Charlie’s Angels, etc. Do I need to go on?

NBC Pulls ‘Welcome to the Family,’ ‘Ironside,’ Sets ‘Community Return


Saw this coming from a mile away. When NBC picked up this pilot, I knew for sure this was gonna fail. I mean you are remaking a show that people use to watch in the 60s and isn’t remembered by many. Nostalgia will only get you so far. People just weren’t watching. It needed to bring something else to the table and unfortunately it was just another procedural that clearly people are tired of. Hopefully Blair Underwood can get on a show soon that is worthy of the man’s talents. YAY Community is back though; probably for it’s final season.

“Tina and Amy are two of the most talented comedic writer/performers in our business and they were a major reason the Golden Globes was the most entertaining awards show of last season,” said NBC’s alternative programming president Paul Telegdy in a statement. “We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.”

Last year’s Fey/Poehler-hosted show attracted nearly 20 million viewers, a 17 percent surge vs. 2012 (the increase among adults 18-49 was 28 percent).
