AS IF WE DIDN’T SEE THIS COMING: BLACK BOX HAS BEEN CANCELLED

High expectations were put in place for ABC’s new drama the Black Box. With the networks roster of hit dramas like Scandal the bar has been set really high. The Black Box unfortunately started out strong and quickly fell off the radar. Although it was filled with lots of drama.

The bi-polar neuroscientist already has a lot on her plate with her personal life. Then she saves mentally disturbed people from themselves. Sound like enough drama right? The Black Box’s main character also was so promiscuous, it just seemed unsettling. The show goes from 0 to 100 real quick.

ABC has pulled the plug on the mind rattling drama. Sometimes less is more.

 

SORRY FOLKS: KRISTIE HAS BEEN CANCELLED

I hate to be the bearer of bad news. But here is goes, Kristie has been cancelled.

The TV Land Comedy will not return for a second season. TV veterans Kristie Alley and Rhea Perlman, Micheal Richard and Eric Petersen just could not pull in the viewers. Was this show doomed form the start? Michael Richards is well know for playing Kramer on Seinfield, but he also has a gray cloud hanging over his head from is loud racial slur outburst he had during a stand-up comedy gig. Let’s just say the N-Word will kill your career if you are not a rapper.

Did you watch this show? Did you even know this show was in existence?

SAY IT AIN’T SO: SOMEONE’S TIME WILL END ON THE SIMPSON’S

The Simpson’s will lose a major character on their show. The first episode of the Simpson’s 26th season is titled A Clown In The Dumps. Due to the very specific title everyone thinks it is going to be Krusty the Clown who will die.

Executive producer Al Jean will only tell us that the character who will be killed off is played by an Emmy award winning actor. This particular actor won their Emmy for playing the Simpson’s character. So that would break it down to the following characters Krusty the clown, Sideshow Bob, Bart, Lisa, Marge and Rabbi Hyman Krustofski (Krusty the clowns dad).

But that’s all the executive producer would say. Well my bets are on Krusty the Clown, his time is up.

 

IS SHE REPLACEABLE: PAM OLIVER IS OUT

I guess it’s out with the old and in with the new at FOX Sports. Veteran sportscaster Pam Oliver has been demoted and replaced by Erin Andrews for this coming football season. Just call Erin Mrs. Getouttheway, because she has the power to take ones job. First she snatches up Brooke Burke‘s co-host position with Dancing with the Stars and now Pam’s job. Why is Erin is such high demand? Who is she? I had no clue who she was until she appeared on Dancing with the Stars.

Pam is not too happy about ending her time as the sideline reporter. She really had plans for her 20th year on the field, although it’s over, her time with FOX Sports is not. Pam will be working on other productions for the network.

After giving FOX Sports almost 20 years, I hope the execs at FOX show Pam how much they appreciate her. Their producers better be planning an anniversary special. She deserves it. How many women last that long in a male dominated industry, such as sports broadcasting?

 

PULLING THE PLUG: NICKELODEON CANCELS SAM AND CAT

The none thing that sucks about being a child star is you have to grow up. Don’t grow up guys it’s a trap, your feeling and responsibilities get in the way. After all of behind the scene drama on the set of Nickelodeon’s Sam and Cat has been cancelled.

Stars of the show Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy’s gained lots of recognition thanks to this show (even though they have been working for Nickelodeon for years), but did you know that their first and only season consisted of 40 episodes. The schedule was grueling on all involved and cause tension behind the scenes. While all of this was happening McCurdy was dealing with her own scandal, while her co-star was becoming a pop singer.

Remember when some racy photos McCurdy was released and she was also receiving major criticism for having a black boyfriend. McCurdy then accused Nickelodeon of treating her unfairly. The production stopped. After the long hiatus Nickelodeon has decided to end the hit series. Check out the promo trailer for Sam and Cat. It’s really over guys.

IT’S OFFICIALLY A WRAP: COMMUNITY IS NO MORE

Rumors were spreading the comedy sitcom Community was going to be revived by Hulu. If you remember the show was cancelled by NBC after 5 seasons. Hulu was in talk with Sony to bring the comedy back to life, but talks have since ended. The actor’s contracts expire next week, so if Sony does not find another network Community will officially be a thing of the past.

No word from any of the actors of Community. I’m guessing they probably want to be done with this whole thing. The will all be on new shows by next year anyway. Who wants to work on a job that’s not stable and has no job security.

Will you miss Community?

WELL I’LL BE: THE FOOD NETWORK GIVES ANOTHER DEEN THE BOOT

It looks like the Food Network is cleaning house, and they want all of the Deen’s out of there. Jamie Deen has no been dropped from the network. Jamie is the youngest of the Deen Clan (no pun intended). Well Jamie’s mom is launching her own network soon and her sons are expected to appear. There hasn’t been any official statement released from the Food Network, but Jamie’s cooking show has not been in production since 2013. It has been pulled out of production. They can take their butter and roll.

Despite the controversy surrounding their moms racial statement, I wish them well.
