I was going to spend this time writing about more Monday night shows, but let’s just cover some other things first. I’m behind anyway.
Bob Saget can’t be brought down. He’s a force to be reckoned with.
So last summer, I go to my car and find a flat tire. So I take it to Goodyear, and as I’m waiting for them to plug it (at least I didn’t have to buy a new one), I was stuck in a small room with a TV. It’s Saturday afternoon, and of course, nothing’s on. I figured it’d be stuck on sports, but no, it’s The CW’s preview of their fall shows, hosted by the mother from Privileged and Bob Saget. And what was he advertising? Surviving Suburbia.
Does anyone remember this show? Does anyone remember that it was supposed to be on Sunday nights on The CW? Does anyone remember it was never on?
Well, ABC is turning on its Brangelina style and adopting it. Bob will get his shot to shine in April, based on this Futon Critic report. But hey, at least it’s a new show. Not that I’m opposed to the adoption of Scrubs, but ABC is kinda taking on the older and has-beens.
Like Cupid, which was a 1998 comedy that was cancelled. Well, now ABC is taking it on, as I reported before, but in a worse way. Worse actors for one. What’s another?
Delays. The premiere has been moved from March 24 to March 31. Plus, now there are less episodes. Yes, they’ve cut the episodes they’ve signed on for all the way down to 7 now. From 13 to 9 to 7. Pretty soon they’ll be at 4 and have Drive‘s young life.
Really, TV Squad asked the question right: Honestly, why are they even bothering with another Cupid? I believe that was my question all along.
But in good news, we’re now getting closer and closer to Dollhouse. A week and a day, people, so I hope you’re all planning your Friday nights accordingly. No Tivoing the first episode, ok? That will give FOX license to cancel. Show support.
And get excited!
