ABC Fall 2014 New Schedule & Shows


ABC went into its upfront presentation today in the same place it has been for the last couple of years, in fourth place. While their percentage of viewer decline has been way less than that of the other networks, they still can’t catch a break as all their new dramas and comedies have failed terribly and not even Shonda Rhimes can save them. Their biggest problems are Tuesdays, Thursdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 11 pm and it doesn’t really seem like they tried to change much on the schedule. The biggest change occurs on Tuesday and Thursday. They moved their comedy block an hour earlier on Tuesdays to start the night off. That’s good as it won’t have to go up against FOX’s comedy hour at 9 pm. They moved The Goldbergs to the time slot it should have been in from the beginning, after The Middle. Maybe if they had done that last fall, along with giving Trophy Wife the post Modern Family slot, that show wouldn’t have sunk the way it did. Yes, I’m a little bitter. See here and here. They have also done what I figured they were going to on Thursdays and just made it a Shonda Rhimes night of television. Moving Grey’s Anatomy to 8 pm is definitely going to be a huge challenge as it will be going up against the highest rated comedy on television, The Big Bang Theory. That show could put a huge dent into the ratings of ABC’s highest rated drama. They also moved Scandal to the 9 pm hour which I think would have worked except NBC will be moving The Blacklist to that time slot making it a very competitive hour. For Sunday they finally did what they should have done two years ago, which was move Revenge back to it’s 10 pm time slot. Check out all of these changes in the new Fall 2014 schedule.

Random stuff that tickled me or that I wanted to talk about from the past week.

Let’s start with Kristen Stewart coming out and apologizing for cheating on her Twilight costar and boyfriend of almost 4 years, Rob Pattinson. This situation is sad as infidelity is one of the many things I hate that people do in relationships but because Pattinson was gonna propose to his lady love and the guy Stewart cheated with, her director from Snow White and The Huntsman, Rupert Sanders is married and has two kids. All of that is sad but is some hilarity in this situation and that comes in the form of the Twihards, crazy Twilight fanatics. These people are so invested in that story that they are just lol devastated by this. They want to know how Stewart could do this to Rob and them and now hate her and such. They are literally in tears and histerics over it. It’s HILARIOUS. Watch this video of one crazy Twihard expressing her feelings about the whole cheating scandal.  Continue reading Random

Headlines From The Week


So much going on in the tv and movie world this week. Here are some from this week.

Arsenio Hall Returning To Late Night Whoop, Whoop, Whoop Whoop. Arsenio Hall is going to get his own late-night talk show again.  CBS Television Distribution is developing a new syndicated talk show for the comedian to debut next fall. It has been almost 20 years since the Arsenio Hall Show ended and we hadn’t really seen much of the comedian lately. Arsenio was recently seen on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice, where he was crowned the winner over former American Idol runner up, Clay Aiken. In interviews leading up to the finale of Celebrity Apprentice, Hall made many statements about wanting to return to late-night. Clearly someone was taking note.

Season Finales Thursday 5/17/12 (Scandal, Awake, 30 Rock,Community, etc)


Missing – ABC 8/7c Series Finale. In the thrilling conclusion to Season One, Becca faces her own inner demons in a way she never has before in a last-ditch effort to save her son. Meanwhile, Suspect Zero tries to complete his sale. This show is actually not bad. Too bad ABC just cancelled it this past week. Hopefully it’s a good finale.

Community – NBC 8/7c & 9/8c Season 3 finale. Gilbert Lawson former right-hand man to Pierce’s father, requests a meeting with Pierce at Hawthorne Enterprises; the study group must pitch in to help save Pierce’s inheritance.The study group develops a plan to infiltrate Greendale’s Chang-controlled campus; Troy turns to the Air Conditioning Repair Annex for help.Shirley and Pierce’s disagreement over their sandwich shop leads to Jeff squaring off with Alan , his former colleague, in Greendale Summer Fun Court; Vice Dean Laybourne  makes a last attempt at winning over Troy. Glad this show is coming back. Not happy about them putting it on Fridays. I mean if they wanted to kill the show just cancel it.

30 Rock – NBC 8:30/7:30c Season 6 finale. Determined to prove his marriage has survived Avery’s kidnapping unscathed, Jack asks Liz to officiate their vow renewal. Meanwhile, Criss tries to convince Liz that he’s worth sticking around for. Tracy meets with Cornel West  to discuss his influence as a black celebrity.

Rules of Engagement – CBS 8:30/7:30c Season 6 finale. Jen volunteers to throw Audrey a baby shower, but puts the wrong date on the invitation. Meanwhile, Jeff takes a liking to Audrey’s maternity clothes, and Russell accomplishes great things when he decides to give up women. I don’t know how this show makes it every season. It’s like the stepchild at CBS. They move it around a lot and never bring it back on time and still it comes back and does pretty ok. They might not be so lucky this year though as CBS is still in discussions on whether to drop the show.

Grey’s Anatomy – ABC 9/8c Season 8 finale. A dangerous situation leaves the doctors fighting to stay alive while trying to save their peers; Ben and Bailey make a decision; Teddy gets a tempting offer; Richard plans a dinner for the residents. Don’t really watch the show but if you do, one of the main characters is going to die. Don’t worry it’s not Meredith or Derrick. The actors just signed on for two more years of Grey’s.

Person of Interest – CBS 9/8c Season 1 finale. When a psychologist’s number comes up, Reese must protect her from one of her patients while eluding capture by the FBI, who are closing in fast. Meanwhile, Finch receives an unwelcome visit from an old acquaintance. This episode will be good one. The Feds are coming for them and Reese’s old partner is still alive. Can’t wait. This show started off slow but now its gotten really good. And they have brought Taraji P. Henson’s character in more so I like seeing her do her thing there. It’s been picked up for a second season so yay!!!

Awake – NBC 10/9c Series finale. Detective Britten doesn’t know who to trust when the truth behind the accident begins to show itself and a high-ranking conspiracy threatens both of his realities. In a moment of frustration, Britten decides to take the law into his own hands and goes after Detective Hawkins, putting himself and Bird (Steve Harris) in the crosshairs of the conspirators. Captain Harper is instructed to clean up the mess. Later, when questioned about his partner, Detective Vega begins to have concerns about his Captain’s intentions. Sad this show didn’t make it. It started with so much potential.

The Mentalist – CBS 10/9c Season 4 finale. After another failed attempt to defeat Red John, Patrick Jane hits rock bottom, finds a lover and shoots one of his own.

Scandal – ABC 10/9c Season 1 finale. When Quinn finds herself in a tragic and compromising place, Olivia and the team rush to her side; all the while, a reluctant Cyrus must turn to Olivia when Billy Chambers makes an announcement that shakes Fitz’s presidency to its’ core. I feel like this show just started and we are already at the finale. This show gets better every flipping episode. The good thing is we’ll get to see more of the show after this because it’s been renewed for a second season.

New Show: ABC’s Scandal


Be sure to check out Scandal, the new show from Grey’s Anatomy creator, Shonda Rhimes. Kerry Washington (Ray, Save The Last Dance), Columbus Short (Stomp The Yard, Death At A Funeral), and Henry Ian Cusick (24, Fringe) star in the show about heading off or eliminating scandal of the very rich, famous and powerful of Washington, D.C.  Hopefully this show will be good. Watch the premiere tonight on ABC at 10/9c after Grey’s Anatomy.
