UPDATED: 2015 Midseason TV Premieres – Dates For New And Returning Shows


Happy Holidays everyone. It’s the time of year when families have holiday decorations out and the temperature drops a little too much for my liking. It’s also the time of year when there is nothing on TV and all your favorite shows take a winter hiatus (Perfect time to catch up on stuff you haven’t seen). On the bright side, many shows are returning from hiatus or premiering as early as the first day of the new year. With that being said, I have put together a nice little guide to all the return and premiere dates of your favorite shows and soon to be favorites. The guide is will be updated when new dates are announced so be sure to come back and check on your show if it’s not there. 

2015 Midseason TV Premieres Dates For New And Returning Shows

CBS Fall 2014 New Schedule & Shows


Even though their number one spot got taken this year by NBC, CBS can still boast going into their upfront presentation that they are the most watched network in total viewers. They do need to be worried however, as their viewership in the 18-49 advertiser demo has dropped almost 15% in the last year. Their biggest problems are Mondays at 8:30 pm and Fridays at 8 pm. These two time slots have been where shows go to die on the channel.  It seems they have come up with a solution for both of these problems as they have cut down their two hour Monday comedy block to one hour, putting a new drama at 9 pm. They have also decided to keep reality in the Friday 8 pm time slot instead of trying another new drama. Other than that there really isn’t much they are changing. I mean if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. See all the changes in their new Fall 2014 schedule.  Continue reading CBS Fall 2014 New Schedule & Shows

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?

CBS 2013 Upfronts


CBS is the number one network and because of that fact they do not have much that needs changing. Their approach to their 2013-2014 schedule is if it ain’t broke don’t fix it one. With that there weren’t very many changes made to the schedule. They extended their Thursday night comedy to 2 hours and they have taken a page out of cable’s playbook and are doing short series runs on Monday nights with two new series having short 15 episode seasons. One will air in the fall and the other during the mid-season. The new series coming next year are We Are Men, Mom, The Millers, Reckless, The Crazy Ones, Hostages, Intelligence and Friends With Better Lives. Check out the schedule below.

It’s that time of the year again. The upfronts here. It’s the time when all the broadcast networks are going to unveil their fall schedules. We usually have to wait until the day of each network’s upfront to find out for sure what has been cancelled or renewed but this year that news has been coming all week.
I always get really excited about upfronts but I’m especially excited for this year’s because one of my projects for grad school was to play ABC exec and put together an upfront for class (shoutout to my group members Emma, Debbie and Yijing). It was soo fun so I’m looking forward to seeing how accurate we were with what got cancelled and what was picked up. Here is the schedule for the broadcast networks to unveil their schedule.

NBC – Monday 5/13

Fox – Monday Afternoon 5/13

ABC – Tuesday 5/14

CBS – Wed 5/15

A lot of cancellations and pickups have already been announced. For those check out TVLine, The Wrap, Deadline, or Hollywood Reporter. I will post as each schedule becomes available. Stay tuned for updates.

55th Annual Grammy Awards Winners


The 55th Annual Grammy Awards aired tonight on CBS and while there were some  great performances, with a run time of three and a half hours there were plenty of boring moments (Frank Ocean and Taylor Swift’s performances, LL Cool J hosting).

The best parts of the show were Justin Timberlake’s performance of “Suit & Tie”, The Bob Marley Tribute which wasn’t much of a tribute at all with Rihanna, Bruno Mars, Sting, and The Marley brothers (Marley and Ziggy), the shade Chris Brown threw when Frank Ocean won by not standing when everyone else did, Kelly Clarkson’s cover of Tennessee Waltz and Natural Woman, Rihanna’s performance of Stay with Mikky Ekko and the in memorium performance of The Weight by Elton John, Zac Brown Band, Mumford & Sons, Mavis Staples and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes.
