I know I’m over 3 weeks late here but…. better late than never right? So upfronts happened and brought about the final nail to the coffins of many shows as well as plenty of renewals for the networks. We also get a preview of what the fall 2012 has in store for us.
Lets’s start with ABC. Their cancelled shows for the 11-12 season were Charlie’s Angels, Desperate Housewives, GCB, Man Up!, Missing, Pan Am, The River and Work It. Renewed shows are Castle, Modern Family, Body of Proof, Cougar Town, Dancing With the Stars, Grey’s Anatomy, Happy Endings, Last Man Standing, Once Upon A Time, Private Practice, Revenge, Suburgatory, The Bachelor, and The Middle.
I’m not really sad about any of the shows that were cancelled here. The only one that I feel they should have given more time to was GCB. Maybe let it run a little more in the summer to catch more of an audience. Their ratings weren’t terrible either so I didn’t really understand that one. As for everything that got renewed YES, YES, YES especially Cougar Town. TBS came in with a last minute save on the show because ABC was definitely going to ax it. So come this fall Cougar Town will no longer air on ABC but on TBS. Continue reading Network Upfronts 2012
Premieres Premieres Premieres!!!
American Idol (FOX) – Season Premiere. Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, and Randy Jackson are back tonight with the 11th season of American Idol. This is the best part of this show because all the terrible auditions are shown. After the first two weeks I turn this show off. After all the horrible singers are gone, who cares. It gets so boring. At least Simon use to make it interesting. Now the three judges left are just ehh and really have nothing at all interesting to say.
Criminal Minds (CBS) – Winter return. The team is traveling to San Francisco under suspicion that the Zodiac Killer is once again on a murderous warpath. Meanwhile, Reid will ponder his own capabilities as he accompanies Prentiss to a seminar on violent crime hosted by the crime novelist Patricia Cornwell.
CSI (CBS) – Winter return. When a professional hit takes place at a law firm that Catherine recommended to a friend, she helps the FBI investigate. This is the episode before Marg Helgenburg’s exit. I might have to watch these last two episodes since Catherine Willows was my fave on this show. I have only watched off and on since William Peterson’s Gill Grissom left about 3 seasons ago.
Mistresses (BBC) – Season Premiere. Finally BBC is airing the final season of this show. I liked it very much and I’m sad that it didn’t continue. The name should tell you a lot about this show. It’s soapy and quite delicious and there are some really good stories as well as some good acting.
Royal Pains (USA) – Winter Premiere. Eric Kassabian’s life hangs in the balance after a prescription error and Hank blames Dr. Van Dyke instead of Divya. Meanwhile, Paige tosses convention aside and makes Evan an offer he can’t refuse.
