Yes, CBS dumped CSI for lack of ratings. ALL the CSI shows. But now CBS is saying “We are incredibly proud of all CSI shows and It may come back in another incarnation.”

Hmm, how proud? Ya dumped it gang! But I'm wondering if they're going to set it loose in their new streaming product, much like the new Star Trek series that I'll never watch?

We'll see.


Syfy has ordered the Superman prequel series, Krypton. Not sure why, but they did. It takes place a few generations before the planet blows up, so specifically, it will be a dramatic production about another planet's people. Like maybe General Krypton Hospital.

At least that's my guess.


Orange is the New Black
Our favorite drama about women in prison is returning on Netflix for a fourth season, with will "air" on Friday, June 17th, 2016.

"Pain is always there. Suffering is a choice."


Here's a rich one...  CBS, after letting Supergirl go and giving it to their offshoot network, The CW, now says that they would have given more consideration to renewing Supergirl if The CW had not swooped in to pick it up, out from under them.

"Who’s to say if we hadn’t made that deal that we wouldn’t have picked it up."

Crickets... I'm thinking if you were going to, you would have, but that's just me.

Seriously? This is like an alternate ending to a movie where months later we hear about something that had nothing to do with the released movie/story, just to quell some demographic of fans.

Have you ever seen a show pulled out from under a network by a lesser network? Not I, says this writer. But what I am seeing is new marketing spin to help keep the fans interested in the series transition to its new home.


The Strain
The latest vampire drama series is set to return to FX on Sunday, August 28th. To be honest, I'm not sure I'm going to partake in the third season. Having read the books and experiencing how slow the series is, versus the books, it's a bit painful to watch.


FOX has ordered some new shows for the 2016-17 television season. And tell me you haven't heard of these reboots before? Or at least some of them.

The new dramatic shows include

The Exorcist,
Lethal Weapon,

And new laugh track-filled shows include
Making History and
The Mick.

I don't see The Exorcist panning out. It's a moment that a movie covers wonderfully, but to draw out a demonic possession could get old fast. It smells like Fox's swing at The CW's Supernatural.
