Even though ABC renewed Agents of SHIELD and Qauntico, I don't know how much longer they'll be around. I am only wondering this because both of these shows, when they do return next season, will be showing up during mid-season, and at a reduced episode order. Or are they prepping for the Inhumans series and don't have quite the ratings to feel confident at keeping both shows going?
And then there's this thing where they moved Shark Tank from it's mainstay time slot of Friday nights, over to Sunday nights, where it will be facing off against Sunday Night Football on NBC. Either it's a huge risk or they are trying to kill off Shark Tank with the excuse of crap ratings. We'll see how that goes.
ABC is also getting in on the firefighter show by ordering a Grey's Anatomy spin-off that will focus on firefighters risking their lives in and around the Seattle area.
Jimmy Kimmel is returning as the host of The Oscars!
Is anyone having any anticipation for CBS's new dramas coming up next season, SEAL Team, or... SWAT? Yep, another reboot show.
Speaking of new shows, next season will be bringing us 19 new shows on the basic nets...
CBS : 3 dramas, 3 comedies
ABC : 4 dramas, 1 comedies
NBC : 2 dramas, 1 comedy
Fox : 1 comedies, 1 drama, 1 dramedy
CW : 2 dramas
And these numbers do not reflect what's coming at the midseason point!

I know you know this, but as a reminder, NBC canned Chicago Justice, leaving it with whatever it ended on at the end of its first season.
Amazon is adapting a new series based off the 2011 bullshit film titled Hanna. If you remember, Hanna was the film where we were marketed the premise of a young-teen assassin on the loose and defending herself from bad guys. But the film turned into some kind of Alice in Wonderland self-discovery odyssey or journey and really messed with the audiences head. Either way, considering what a bore the film was for me, or more to the point, extremely disappointing, I'm leery of a series.
They're calling it a high-concept thriller about a young girl evading capture from a nemesis while she's learning about who she really is. Sure pal, sure.

Here's a sad note about society: A Canadian man was forced to relinquish his custom Star Trek license plate, ASIMIL8, because people claimed it was an insult to indigenous people.
Whatever happened to "sticks and stones can break my bones, but words will never hurt me?" Stupid question I guess.
