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...

NBC Cancels 'Revolution' and 'Community,' ABC Renews Three

NBC Cancels 'Revolution' and 'Community,' ABC Renews Three
NBC has cancelled Revolution after two seasons. Revolution was a bubble series for a while, and its prospects just kept getting worse. There was a rumor that NBC would order an abbreviated final season, but ultimately NBC passed on the show altogether.

In other news, NBC has cancelled Community, which is surprising after most people thought it would get a final season order from NBC. Community has one of the most devoted fanbases of any TV show, and there has been talks of reviving Community on a Netflix/Hulu type basis. Now that NBC has released the show, hopefully we will hear word of of...

Jennie Nigrosh
You saw her last night on ABC's Shark Tank - now get to know entrepreneur Jennie Nigrosh, the woman behind the 'Green Garmento' eco-friendly dry cleaning bags. BFTV caught up with her on Friday to ask about Jennie's experience on Shark Tank and what's ahead for the company.

"I honestly think it's probably the single most incredible opportunity for an American entrepreneur to have," said Jennie of the hit ABC reality series. "Who gets seven million people watching a show rooting for the little guy?"

It was a natural fit for Jennie, who "sort of had an entrepreneurial spirit my whole life,"...

March 16th, 2012 11:15am EDT
Shark Tank
They don't bite...much. A few months after my visit to ABC's Shark Tank, investor 'Sharks' Daymond John and Kevin O'Leary came back to chat with me about the show's ongoing third season.

Tonight's episode (8 PM ET/PT) sees singer Ingrid Michaelson join one entrepreneur in pitching his music software to the high-powered Sharks - Daymond, Kevin, Barbara Corcoran, Robert Herjavec and Mark Cuban - in hopes of securing an investment.

Here's what Daymond and Kevin had to say about being Sharks.

Aside from the obvious, when you could be doing just about anything you want, what keeps Shark Tan...

Swimming In ABC's 'Shark Tank'

Shark Tank
ABC's Shark Tank opens tonight at 8 PM ET/PT - and before you step in, get the inside dish plus meet the newest Shark, Lori Greiner!

Now in its third season, Shark Tank brings hopeful entrepreneurs face-to-face with a panel of potential investors, or "sharks," that could make their business aspirations a reality...if they can be convinced. Sometimes, it's a chance for us to watch someone's dream come true. Other times, it's painful to see them crash and burn.

I recently visited the set of Shark Tank to check the waters out for myself, and here are a few things you might not know.

In The 'Shark Tank' With Mark Cuban (Part 1)

May 6th, 2011 5:00pm EDT
Shark Tank
You know him as the outspoken owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks. Yet Mark Cuban, who's worth two and a half billion dollars thanks to his vast holdings in media and sports, is a lot more than the guy writing the checks for a sports franchise. His latest venture is ABC's Shark Tank, where he's one of two new panelists this season (the other being Jeff Foxworthy, with whom he alternates episodes) to hear product pitches from ordinary people with extraordinary ideas. As his last episode airs tonight at 8 PM ET/PT, Cuban took time out of a busy schedule to chat with me. Here's part one...

September 21st, 2009 12:30pm EDT
Desperate Housewives
Since CNN has such a blast creating a report card to track the Presidency, we decided to have some fun with television. Which networks come out strong and which ones need to do better homework?

MAJOR NETWORKS

ABC: B

The Good: The dramas are what keep us coming back to ABC. Grey's Anatomy, Brothers & Sisters, FlashForward, and V are worth looking forward to. The one comedy that stands out and may hold itself against NBC's stellar comedies, Modern Family, is worth a few episodes past the pilot.

The Bad: Dancing With The Stars is extremely popular, however sometimes too much of a ...
