    Empire: Discussion Thread

    There is absolutely no excuse for what he did, I was just wondering what his motivation was. Whatever it was it's likely that he will end up claiming that his mental state caused him to behave irrationally and say that he is bipolar or something like that.

    All of this is so bizarre. Fox has denied that he was being let go so if he didn't do this to keep his job there is still the question of why he did do this. Perhaps it was just for attention, but whatever the reason it really is crazy to stage an attack. Politically it won't have any ramifications because it's over a year from the next election and it isn't as if anyone was falsely arrested. It will be as remembered as Morton Downey Jr.'s fake attack.
  3. Karla Mosley can really sing. I just got back from a concert production of Dreamgirls where she played Deena and she was great.

    This certainly is not good. You can't stage this sort of thing and actually get away with it.

    Y&R: RIP Kristoff St John

    It really took them too long to retire the categories, because some of the nominations in the later years were given to people who barely had any screen time.

    A lot of companies love using family very loosely and I don't care for that either. Team is more appropriate for companies to use.

    The Grammys 2019

    IMO, it was better than the show has been in the past few years at least performance wise.

    The only reason those networks even lasted as long as they did is because of the black audience giving them a strong boost. Every secondary network had a black night. WB was Sunday, UPN was Monday and FOX was Thursday. FOX had some popular content that wasn't primarily black that helped them stay afloat, but WB and UPN really relied on black viewers to keep on the air initially.

    Wikipedia is a site where pretty much everyone is always in a race to input information as fast as possible.

    Y&R: Potential Neil Recasts?

    Not surprised at the OP posting this title. They once posted a topic calling for Traci to be recast with someone thinner. That is not meant to be an attack, just an observation. Recasting an iconic character is pointless, because much of why a character is liked is due to how the actor portrays the part. There are just some characters that should be written off when the actor passes on.

    This is about a completely different type of show, but some years back I read an article about Eric Monte and What's Happening!! and how the character Rerun came to be. According to him a pilot of Cooley High was not green lit because the character of Cochise was too handsome and they didn't want the white female audience developing crushes, so the show was retooled and Rerun was created in that character's place. So black men actually being appealing on television was and to a certain extent still is a problem.

    From a business standpoint it would be wise for the show to want to maintain or regain black viewership. Black viewers are huge demographic that networks do not tap into for the most part. Bill Bell seemed to understand this but no other producers and writers really seemed to understand this. Of course black viewers didn't just watch for the black characters because there are plenty of them who love many of the white characters, but it still was the representation of black characters as something else other than just background or supporting types that helped build a black audience. No other demographic is going to replace the black audience. Latino viewers have for years had a well developed set of programming and entertainment because of Spanish language networks. Sure, there is BET and a few other smaller entertainment outlets for black viewers but those are far less developed. All that said soaps have lost so many viewers across the board that it's probably a lost cause to even attempt to draw in more black viewers.

    It's amazing what an impact he had on people. He is as respected as actors that were with their soaps from episode one.

    There are quite a few black people on Twitter talking about the impact the character had on them and it's clear that he was iconic. It's always been clear that Y&R has been the top soap for black viewers, but seeing some of these tweets really drives home how iconic this character was for many people. It is just television but I do believe that positive black characters have and can inspire younger generations to aspire to be successful or at least know that they don't have to fit into traditional stereotypes.
