Recently in We Should Totally Be TV Execs Category
The CW recently revealed that Lindsey Gort (boy, that's a tough name to pull off) will play the young version of Samantha Jones, who was famous on Sex and the City for her super sexual, anything goes outlook.
Given that The CW moved Cult from its plum Tuesday time slot to 9 PM on Friday nights after only two episodes, we figure that the future does not look bright for this series, or the show within the show -- we've even stopped recapping it because we can hear the death knell coming. Since we really do like the cast, we're hoping that they move on to bigger and better things when Cult is inevitably cancelled. Here are our suggestions.
With so many absurd reality shows at our fingertips, we expected The CW's musical chairs-based reality competition to be delightfully stupid. Instead, Oh Sit!, hosted by Jamie Kennedy and Jessi Cruickshank and developed by Phil Gurin (the brains behind Shark Tank and The Singing Bee), is more boring than anything else. Sure, it's great that the show clearly doesn't take itself seriously and doesn't blatantly promote sexism like the equally mindless The Choice, but at the end of the day, Sit! is more of a sub-par Wipeout rip-off.
After some renegotiation snafus, the adult stars of Modern Family are filing suit to void their contracts. While some may think that without Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sofia Vergara and Ed O'Neill, the show could not exist, we find it easy to imagine Modern Family without the primary parents. In fact, there's many different ways to write around their characters:
We still can't believe how much we loved Project Runway All Stars, to the point that we're kind of bummed that Isaac Mizrahi, Georgina Chapman, Joanna Coles and Angela Lindvall won't be around this season. Much as we enjoyed Season 9 (not to mention the fact that we'd never turn down more Tim Gunn in our lives), we're a little worried that the show will now fall the way of other reality competitions that lost stamina after an all-star season (looking at you, Top Chef). Here's what we're hoping that the powers that be at Lifetime bring to the runway this season:
After Ringer was rejected by CBS, The CW valiantly swooped in to save little Buffy and her soapy primetime series. And we were smitten with the show at first, thanks to Sarah Michelle Gellar and the promise of lots of dark twists and evil twins. Fast forward 20 episodes later and we've all but given up on what has now become a forgettable drama that we barely remember exists. The CW has yet to announce any plans of renewing the series, but we have a few reasons to offer for why this week's Season 1 finale should be the series finale.
Matthew Weiner has been extremely hush-hush about the upcoming Season 5 of Mad Men, to say the least. While we haven't even seen a teaser trailer with any new content, we feel confident that we know a few things that won't happen on the critically acclaimed drama. Here are all of the things we can be certain we won't see from the extended Sterling-Cooper-Draper-Pryce gang this year.
Apparently, MTV is in lock-down crisis-mode thanks to unconfirmed reports that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is three months pregnant. We're not sure why the network is freaking out -- this is clearly an excellent career move for Snooki, and the perfect opportunity for a Jersey Shore spin-off we'd actually watch (even with Jionni). To help MTV see things our way, we're compiled a list of potential show names/ideas for the (supposedly) expecting Jersey girl:
Clearly, hiring music industry professionals was of no help to The X Factor, as demonstrated by the recent axing of judge/mentors Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger (as well as host Steve Jones). Who should replace them? We suggest that Simon Cowell look to already successful reality TV judges -- regardless of whether or not they have experience critiquing singers. While some of these personalities might seem like an odd fit, each one of them would be more fun to watch than the former Laker Girl and Pussycat Doll:
Over the course of a few seasons, Glee has gone from a fun teen show with music to a jukebox show with plots and characters that make little to no sense. And while the long-running Degrassi franchise has hit some tough patches of its own over the years, they've managed to stick through it all (even adding occasional music), successfully entertaining and educating several generations teens since the mid-'80s. If Glee wants to last anywhere near that long (and God help us if it does), there's plenty that it could learn from our favorite neighbors to the north:
