Fall TV 2014: A Night By Night Comparison Of What May And May Not Work

Fall TV 2014: A Night By Night Comparison Of What May And May No
Now that all the big networks have revealed what they’ll be showing us this fall, let’s take a look at what may or may not work.

SUNDAY:

ABC is essentially playing it safe, and keeping Sunday Night intact. American Crime will swap for Resurrection at midseason. Resurrection was a buzzy drama that started seeing a ratings decline. Not waiting till midseason is probably a smart move. You don’t want to lose any more audience. It’s not a winning strategy, but ABC just doesn’t want to be in last place.

NBC has football, another super safe move. CBS is shaking things up, banishing Amazing Race...

CBS Renews A Ton Of Shows

March 13th, 2014 3:16pm EDT
The Good Wife
CBS issued renewals to NCIS, NCIS: LA, CSI, Criminal Minds, Person Of Interest, Elementary, Hawaii Five-O, Blue Bloods, The Good Wife, 2 Broke Girls, The Millers, Mom, Mike and Molly, Two and a Half Men, The Amazing Race, Survivor, Undercover Boss, 60 Minutes, and 48 Hours. Add to that the renewal of The Big Bang Theory, and CBS just renewed a whopping 20 shows.

Not being picked up, but still not cancelled, are The Mentalist, Intelligence, Hostages, and The Crazy Ones. I would definitely rule out Intelligence and Hostages. Both failed to grab huge audiences. I think The Mentalist will prob...

Marisa Ramirez on the set of Blue Bloods
When Jennifer Esposito exited the CBS ratings stalwart “Blue Bloods” in its third season, producers scrambled to find a replacement.  Following unsuccessful attempts with other actresses, TV vet Marisa Ramirez stepped into the role of Detective Maria Baez and the badge fit perfectly.  Genuine chemistry sparked between series star Donnie Wahlberg, audiences loved her and Ramirez was invited to stay on as a series regular in the fourth season, which premieres on Friday, September 27th.

Ramirez has donned a cop role before. Most recently, in the recurring character of Officer Riley Dunn on AB...

2013 Fall TV Preview: The Returning Shows On The CW & CBS

September 4th, 2013 6:00pm EDT
Arrow
The CW and CBS are complete opposites. The CW shouldn't be in business, and CBS is THE business. The CW aims for teenagers to lose their sh!t on social media. CBS aims for the median age of the people in my office. I've never understood the Blue Bloods audience more than in the last year. My interest in The CW is odd and possibly unhealthy. I'm endlessly fascinated with its shows and attractive actors. I'll watch Reign just for Adelaide Kane. I'm not endlessly fascinated by CBS. CBS lulls me to sleep. I never wrote about Elementary's "Pilot" because I went to sleep mid-episode. I never watc...

Donnie Wahlberg Wants Jennifer Esposito Back On 'Blue Bloods'

November 21st, 2012 3:28pm EST
Donnie Wahlberg
Donnie Wahlberg hopes his Blue Bloods co-star Jennifer Esposito can resolve her feud with TV bosses soon so she can return to the crime drama.

The Latina beauty, who played series regular Jackie Curatola, was suspended from the series after asking executives at TV network CBS to cut back her shooting schedule after she collapsed on set.

Esposito, who suffers from autoimmune disorder Celiac Disease, called on her doctor to write to producers explaining why she needed a break, but they allegedly refused to back down, and her character was written out of the show last month.

However, Blu...

Blue Bloods
Jennifer Esposito, who played series regular Jackie Curatola on "Blue Bloods," was temporarily written out of the show after requesting to cut back her shooting schedule due to a health issue.

Show bosses reportedly refused to give the actress a break from filming, even though she has Celiac Disease, an autoimmune disorder.

Esposito posted on Twitter last week: "CBS PUT me on unpaid leave and has blocked me from working anywhere else after my doctor said you needed a reduced schedule due to Celiac (Disease). CBS didn't listen to my doc and I collapsed on set...

Who Aced The 2010-11 TV Season? (Hint: It's Not NBC)

June 4th, 2011 3:30pm EDT
The Voice
The 2010-2011 TV season is officially over. The ratings are in. If there is one surprise, it’s that last year’s top five shows were all up in viewers this year. With hefty viewer erosion in recent years, that’s nothing short of a miracle.

Most other veteran shows, however, saw a drop-off in viewers. There are some exceptions, however, such as ‘Modern Family,’ which saw very healthy ratings in its second year, particularly in the 18-49 demo.

The stats didn’t change much from last year. CBS won the season in total viewers with 11.6 million. It’s the eighth time in nine years the netwo...

Abrams starring Jim Caviezel, Emmy Award winner Michael Emerson and Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson; "Unforgettable," starring Dylan Walsh and Poppy Montgomery as a former detective with a rare condition that enables her to remember virtually every det...

How many friends does Chandler still have? Well, it turns out Matthew Perry had nearly 10.6 million who checked out the premiere of his new series, Mr. Sunshine.

Taking the timeslot (9:30/8:30c) usually occupied by fellow Friends alum Courteney Cox's sitcom, his show greatly improved on her numbers; last week, Cougar Town got 6.6 million. The last time ABC did so well during that half-hour was...

Magnum P.I.-turned-NYPD Commissioner Tom Selleck tops the list of cops, but CBS' rookie hit has also gotten Donnie Wahlberg — who traded NKOTB for the LAPD in NBC's underrated 2002-2003 crime drama Boomtown — back on the beat as his son, hotshot detective Danny Reagan. Meanwhile, Nicholas Turturro, who served seven seasons as Det. James Martinez on ABC's NYPD Blue, has rejoined the force as Sgt. Anthony Renzulli, the seen-it-all partner of newbi...

Fall TV: What's Surviving, What's Thriving, And What's Dying

November 11th, 2010 10:25am EST
Mike & Molly
We've reached a breaking point in the Fall TV season: almost everything that's still around will likely survive the season (key word: almost). It's becoming clearer which new shows are hits (hint: not many), and there are already several casualties. Let's run down the list.

The already renewed

CBS has picked up all five of their new shows: 'Hawaii Five-O,' 'Mike & Molly,' '@#$% My Dad Says,' 'Blue Bloods' and 'The Defenders.' Each show has performed admirably, but none can be called a runaway hit. CBS, though, has the least holes in its schedule and can be proud that viewership is up ...

Bridget Moynahan
Actress Bridget Moynahan has struck up a new Hollywood romance after reportedly finding love with director McG.

The I, Robot star has previously dated screenwriter Scott Rosenberg and has a three-year-old son with football God Tom Brady, born after they split and he had become involved with his now-wife Gisele Bundchen.

Moynahan sparked rumors of a new romance when she accompanied the Charlie's Angels director to a charity tennis tournament in California recently and is now said to be in a relationship with the moviemaker.

A source tells Life & Style magazine, "Bridget and McG have be...

First, the new:

Mike & Molly, Mon. Sept. 20, 9:30/8:30 CST -- America's obesity epidemic has left a lot us a bit fluffier, and "Mike & Molly" might be CBS's attempt to deliver a show we can relate to. Unfortunately, that seems to be the extent of the humor -- being fluffy. The main characters, played by Billy Gardell ("Yes, Dear") and Melissa McCarthy ("Gilmore Girls"), meet at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting, fall for each other, and deal with the modern-day problems overweight couples face.

Tom Selleck's New Show 'Blue Bloods' Won't Stop 'Jesse Stone'

September 17th, 2010 11:30am EDT
Blue_Bloods
Next week, Tom Selleck’s new TV series Blue Bloods premieres on CBS. The commitment to a new weekly drama won’t hurt his other job though. Selleck promises more Jesse Stone movies while he’s on Blue Bloods.

“Number seven is ready to go,” Selleck told the Television Critics Association this summer. “It's called Innocents Lost, e-n-t-s. I made it real clear that I wasn't going give up Jesse, so we're writing number eight.”

Sales of the last Jesse Stone DVD haven’t hurt Selleck’s case. “My boss Helen Verno, just sent me a note saying that No Remorse, the last one that just aired, is Number...

The Family Drama That Brought Tom Selleck Back To TV

Tom Selleck is back in a weekly series this fall in CBS’s Blue Bloods. He plays a New York City police commissioner with two cop sons and a prosecutor daughter. This is was the sort of juicy dynamic that got Selleck to return to the world where he once played Magnum P.I.

“Conflicts are interesting for me,” Selleck told the Television Critics Association at a press conference today. “You can’t be more conflicted than a police commissioner who’s got a prosecuting attorney for a daughter and two sons who are cops on the street. From a command standpoint, that’s going to be a big conflict in t...

Tom Selleck Eyes Return To Broadway

Tom Selleck-ALO-015664.jpg
TV and movie star Tom Selleck has his sights set on Broadway - almost a decade after he made his theatre debut in New York.

The actor was a big hit in A Thousand Clowns in 2001 and he has been keen to get back onstage ever since - but his film and TV career and his sideline as an avocado farmer in California have kept him too busy.

He says, "I'll probably do a Broadway play soon. There's a lot of possibilities but it requires time which I'm happy to say I don't have right now.

"As much as I enjoyed doing my first Broadway play, my first play of any kind back in 2001, I haven't had ...
