The 2013-2014 Fall Lineup (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX)

Published

on

The Fall 2013-2014 lineups have been released and things are looking pretty interesting for primetime. ABC has stated it is adding 14 new shows to its programming this fall. This might seem like a lot until you realize that FOX is adding 11 new shows and NBC is adding a total of 17 shows!! With primetime in high competition with cable for eyeballs, its no wonder that these channels are stepping up their game.

 

ABC

ABC is brining on-board Mavels Agent’s of SHIELD from creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon to Tuesday nights, hoping to broaden the spectrum of viewers for the channel. The hit ABC drama  Once Upon a Time is is getting a spinoff, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.

With the success of shows like Revenge, ABC is adding a new program conveniently titled Betrayal, which I will assume has to do with a married couple that’s got some betrayal on their mind. Killer Women, Mind Games, Lucky 7 and Resurrection.

Shows returning for the fall season include: Once Upon a Time, Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, Nashville, Castle, and Revenge while it has cancelled Body of Proof, Red Widow and Happy Endings. 

NBC

New drama’s for NBC include Blacklist, Ironside and Dracula. Mid-season NBC plans to air Believe, a new drama by produce J.J Abrams. Grimm, Law & Order: SVU, Revolution, and Chicago Fire are among the drama’s returning for the fall.

CBS

CBS is taking a different path from all the other networks and investing in comedies instead of dramas. This might be a smart decision with all of the folks at home looking for some light television after a long day at work, but it could also be a giant flop for the consumers that want to get invested in an actual serialized storyline. Oh well, someone’s got to keep the laughs coming.

The fall season will premiere The Crazy Ones, a comedy starring Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Geller (which is odd, cause I’ve never seen her in a comedy.) Amongst the other comedies are The Millers, Mom and We Are Men. 

CBS is also investing in two new drama’s for the fall season, Hostages and Intelligence.

Returning series include, How I Met Your Mother, Elementary, The Big Bang Theory, CSI,  Criminal Minds, Hawaii Five-O, etc. Honestly, from all of the networks it seems that CBS has the best record for highly watched shows on primetime TV.

FOX

As a network that saw a 20% drop in ratings this season, Fox really has to step up its game. Unfortunately, looking at the fall lineup and seeing all the cop and legal shows, I doubt its going to go very well for them. Thankfully, I don’t think American Idol has made the cut. I guess the show is finally showing the network that it isn’t all that it used to be.

Fox plans to add on three new comedies and two new dramas to the fall lineup. Almost Human, a cop drama, will be premiering in the midseason replacing Bones. Sleepy Hollow, a new mystery thriller looks highly promising for the Monday night slot. A new comedy Dads is also on the schedule along with drama, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a detective cop show. Midseason Fox will air Gang Related and Rake, both police and legal dramas.

Shows coming back for the fall include Glee, The Following, New Girl, The Mindy Project, 24,  and X-factor.

The 2019 AMAS Were All About Statements and Nostalgia

Published

on

“Less is more” was the takeaway of the 2019 American Music Awards.

The night celebrated the years most popular songs and artists, but it was the oldies that made the show resonate with audiences both inside the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles and watching worldwide.

There was plenty of nostalgia going around starting with Kesha’s first performance in 6 years that included her latest single “Raising Hell” but also her 2011 hit “Tik Tok.”

She was finally granted permission to sing her old songs following a public battle with Sony and producer Dr. Luke.

The crowd also had warm reactions to these oldies but goodies: “Green Day’s 1994 “Basket Case,” Toni Braxton’s 1996 “Unbreak My Heart,” and Shania Twain’s 1997 classic “I Feel Like a Woman.”

Plenty of statements were also made at the AMAs as artists proved that they were no longer afraid to stand up to the status quo.

The biggest statements of the night came from the three pop powerhouses, Taylor Swift, Halsey, and Kesha.

All three ladies aimed their jabs at the music industry.

Halsey’s powerful speech shaded the GRAMMY Awards following her absence from the nominees that were announced early last week.

“I am so thankful to the AMA’s because they are the world’s largest fan-voted awards show,” she said emphasizing the fan aspect.

Dynasty’s Adam Huber on Liam’s Amnesia, #Falliam Future & That Kid Storyline

Published

on

Adam Huber as Liam Ridley Interview

Adam Huber plays the uber dreamy Liam Ridley, the latest addition to the Dynasty cast.

Huber scored the title of series regular ahead of Dynasty Season 3.

But even without the coveted upgrade, the heartthrob has been a fan favorite since his debut on Dynasty Season 1 Episode 15, you know, the episode where he married Fallon, a complete stranger, on a whim.

Since then, Fallon and Liam have had a tumultuous yet epic relationship.

Nothing about their relationship has been conventional.

After they overcame a love triangle with Culhane, a messy situation with Liam’s uncle, a divorce, and Fallon’s attempts at winning him back from Ashley, it seemed liked things were going to work out.

Dynasty Season 3 Episode 1 Review: Guilt Trip To Alaska

Fallon proposed to him on the Carrington lake, and despite losing the ring in the water, Liam still said ‘yes.”

But their happiness was short-lived when her tyrannical brother, Adam, clobbered Liam upside the head and locked him in the pool closet.

After regaining consciousness, Liam crawled over to the pool, fell in, and woke up with amnesia, which is where we left off when I spoke with Huber.

Huber dished about Liam’s amnesia, what’s next for their relationship, his possible revenge on Adam, and the storyline he’s dying like to explore.

Dynasty is back and with it returns all of that Carrington craziness!

Sure.

Amidst all of that, you’ve been up to series regular. Congrats. Were you expecting it? 

No, I honestly wasn’t.

There have been other people. Wakeema, whose on the show and plays Monica Colby. You know, me and her were kind of doing the same thing we were just recurring, and you kind of go until you book another show or they give you a contract.

The Epic Kiss - Dynasty

And I was testing actually on another show, NYPD Blue is doing a reboot. I got very close to that. And right around the same time, they asked me to be a series regular.

So, you know, it worked out well. I wasn’t getting on PD Blue, so they had me a series regular. No, I was expecting it. I was just kind of chilling. I was just happy to be there.

It’s a great role to have. 

Right?

Has the way you approach and prepare for the character changed now that he does have a deeper storyline and is so loved by audiences?

I have been putting, I think, more work into it. I mean, I’ve always put work into it, and definitely just trying to stay fresh and just trying to understand him.

We’re very similar, but we’re also different. You want to keep his story fresh. I have a journal that I do character journaling in.

I take what I know, and then just create a story around him.

Like, what was the relationship like with my dad? What is the relationship like with my uncle who is on the show played by C. Thomas Howell? And I do that with all the other people in his life. Does that make sense?
