The fall schedule finally came out. I'm too tired to post the whole thing. I'm just happy to say that Belvedere and ODAAT will remain in their current timeslots. The Jeffersons moves up to a earlier primetime slot to make room for Family Ties (which is in a weird position amongst the Lear shows), and TCFC comes back to weekday afternoons. Saturdays at lunchtime feature a two-hour block of obscure 60s sitcoms My Mother the Car and It's About Time, which is cool.
This is good news, because I honestly thought they were going to be drifting away from the same-day repeats of soaps. They discontinued the post-primetime airings in favor of a late-night slot when BB isn't in season, and it looks like they dropped the morning day-after B&B show. As of right now, it seems DAYS will only air once, but in a nice primetime slot.
I just want them to show classic episodes from time to time, at least at Christmas.
This is exactly how I responded to both of these episodes. Tracey from the Jacqueline/Falesha episode scared the living sh!t out of me! And Trez is one of the greatest Catfish characters of all time for accusing Nev and Max of being "messy."
I'm not really interested in the Tonight Show because late-night talkers aren't really my thing, but this brings some interesting points up in my head:
~ I really need to make sure I watch all those mid-season ODAAT episodes I missed the first time around, because who knows what'll happen to it when TTS comes ~ I wonder how lengthy and complicated the music licensing process for each episode is; would licensing music for soaps be a similar process? Bruh, all I'm asking for is 70s Y&R or DAYS ~ I'd much rather see reruns of daytime talk shows like Donahue or Dinah!
Yes, absolutely! I gotta say, Nanette Fabray was a revelation in those last few seasons. She was very good in both dramatic and comedic episodes, and I wish they'd made her a regular earlier in the show's run.
I regularly watched DAYS from December 2003 until about August 2004, and I don't think I've ever really regularly watched since then. The closest I've gotten was Sami dragging Abby's ass all across Salem last summer.
I'm really finding it hard to believe that "we don't want to confuse the audience" is their one and only reason for not putting the entire series on Netflix, especially considering that the new series with be under a different title. The show's viewers aren't stupid, and if they just labeled all of the 2001-2015 as "Degrassi: The Next Generation" (as opposed to just "Degrassi"), it wouldn't be hard to differentiate between that and "Degrassi: Next Class."
To be honest, the most confusing thing about all of this for me is who exactly cancelled the series. From what I've read, it'll still be on TV in Canada. Will all of the episodes debut on Netflix and then air weekly in Canada? Or will they be posted to Netflix after all 20 have aired in Canada? I don't think Netflix does a weekly upload like Hulu... Plus, if it's going to still be on TV in Canada, then that really makes me wonder why Teen Nick decided to drop it because SURELY it was still one of the highest-rated programs. But we've talked about that already.
I'm glad they're bringing back a full-length opening sequence, but there's no need to discard the basic format that everyone knows and loves. It'll be up-to-date by principle of depicting the characters as true teens/high school students of 2016. Or, they could expand upon the abbreviated sequence they were using, which was pretty visually appealing. They could easily throw some head shots of characters in there with actor names.
THANK YOU!! I've honestly said this about many celebrities over the last year or so, especially the Kardashians. I don't get tired of seeing them because I really don't "see" them other than catching glimpses of their names in headlines on the entertainment tabs of news sites. I'm not interested, so I don't read the articles, and my life goes on.
If, in your own words, she "is not enough to generate a further increase in the ratings," then can you really call that stunt casting? All of the people you said you'd rather see would be the definition of stunt casting lol
I follow him on Twitter, so I saw these when he first tweeted them, and I really do hope he's doing better. The first step is recognizing your demons, and he seems to be fully aware of how dangerous things got for him. I love his mooby ass, and I just want him to do well!
