Fall TV Week 3 **Spoiler Alert**


Partners – Right off the bat it looks just like Will & Grace, which I liked. Glad Brandon Routh has found some steady employment. I didn’t love the show but I liked it. It was consistent and has some laughs. I like Sophia Bush’s character. I feel like she is still playing Brooke from One Tree Hill though. Michael Urie is adorable. It looks like he is playing a less bitchy version of his character on Ugly Betty. We’ll see how the next episode goes.

The Mindy Project – Liked it.  Its funny and quirky (not Zooey Deschanel annoying quirky. I love New Girl but sometimes its just too much). The show wasn’t a slam dunk but it has great potential. Mindy Kaling is a great writer so I only see the show getting better. I thought the supporting characters were pretty good as well. This gets a season pass because I really like Kaling.

Network Upfronts 2012


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

Postmortem on This Week’s Finales ***SPOILERS AHEAD***


If you haven’t watched any finales (Smash, Hart of Dixie, SNL, Person of Interest, Scandal) from this past week. Stop reading NOW. But then come back after you have 🙂 These are all random thoughts as I watched these.

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.

FALL TV (Sorry DVR, Break Time Over)


Every year when September rolls around I always get excited.  Not just because it’s my birthday month but because fall tv returns. I LOVE FALL TELEVISION.  The networks roll out all their new shows that got picked up and old favorites return.  This fall there are over 127 new and returning shows starting Sept 13th from cable and the big 5 networks.    I will be watching all of the new ones for at least 3 or 4 episodes before I decide if they are any good and cut them off. How I’m going to manage that, I don’t know. Entertainment Weekly has a nice article with tips on  how to navigate the fall tv season so it’s gonna be all good.

This season there are many shows that I’m looking forward to, both new and returning, but I have managed to narrow down the list to 10 (5 returning and 5 new) that I think everyone should watch.
