TV News - SENSE8, JAY LENO, SYTYCD And More 061817

Andi Mack was renewed for a second season by the Disney Channel.

The History Channel has ordered an interesting series that will be UFO-themed called Blue Book. It will be a 10-episode series and will focus on the UFO investigations by the secret Blue Book organization in the 50's and 60's. Now I have to wonder how sensationalized they'll make it, kind of like how Animal Planet and Spike and others have made Bigfoot out to be some kind of demon animal killer!

-Flip or Flop Vegas was renewed for a second season by HGTV.

-Jay Leno’s Garage will premiere on CNBC on Wednesday, June 28th.

-Vanessa Hudgens is joining Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance, adding to the already installed team of Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy. Man, that judging box goes through people, don't they?

-Quarry was cancelled by Cinemax.

-Sense8 was cancelled by Netflix...  and to be honest, I'm not surprised. It was an interesting but confounding story.  If t1hey had minimized the number of people swapping brains, it might have gone better. To be honest, every show that I've seen where people swap minds, seems to always flounder in the ratings. And in most cases, the shows have too many characters swapping out. There is one particular show that comes to mind called My Own Worst Enemy, starring Christian Slater. It was a brilliant concept about a spy agency that used brain chips to activate the personality of the homebody or the killer assassin. But Slater's chip started malfunctioning and the other/wrong personality would show up at the wrong times. But then the two personalities became aware of each other and started leaving each other video messages, creating a rivalry, while the 'spy' would leave messages about what he did with their wife last night, and the accountant, helpless to stop things like that and getting jealous. But then there were moments in the battlefield the accountant would pop up... IT was an awesome show, but the problem was they had an entire agency wired like this and as they spent time on the field or at home, it became confusing who was playing what. Otherwise, I think it would have worked for more than the one season that it did.

-The Get Down was cancelled by Netflix.

-Underground was cancelled by WGN.
