ABC’s Announces Summer Schedule

If all goes well, the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games will begin broadcasting on NBC in late July. This gives ample time for ABC to take the lead for summer programming once again with its slate of game shows and unscripted entertainment which begins the first week in June. ABC has learned a few things the last couple of summers introducing a variety of different unscripted programs, but their biggest win to date is Holey Moley. Read More >>>

2021 Kennedy Center Honors Announced

The Kennedy Center Honors announced today that its Honorees for the 43rd class will be multi-disciplinary artist, choreographer and actress Debbie Allen; singer-songwriter and activist Joan Baez; country singer-songwriter Garth Brooks; violinist Midori; and actor Dick Van Dyke. These artists will receive tributes during a TV special airing on June 6 on CBS.

NBC Brings Back Favorite Summer Shows

Boasting of winning the ratings war for the last 10 summers in a row, NBC has announced the debuts of America’s Got Talent, American Ninja Warrior and Making It. These competition shows are completely different from each other and yet highly addictive. And hopefully, these shows will return to normal with more original episodes, less repeats and maybe even some live, in-person audiences. Read More >>>

TV Series Reviews

Young Rock
(NBC)

Young Rock

Imagine the meeting with NBC execs telling Dwayne Johnson that they want to make a sitcom based on his life. I’m sure his response was a simple, “Okay” with that toothy grin of his. Or better yet. He proposed the idea to them! Either way, Young Rock is another self-indulgent project featuring the former wrestling star. This would be really annoying if he wasn’t just so likeable. Read More >>>

The Hustler
(ABC)

The Hustler

The Hustler’s set looks like an elaborate rendition of the board game clue, but there isn’t any murder or mayhem here. Just five people trying to figure out which one is lying. The show is hosted by Craig Ferguson, who now my favorite game show host. Unlike the likes of Steve Harvey or Alec Baldwin, his humor is more subtle giving the show a lot more sophistication than you would expect. Read More >>>

Name That Tune
(FOX)

Name That Tune

Now, the show has been brought back by Prestige Entertainment and Eureka Productions (who are responsible for the mini golf phenomenon, Holey Moley) and unlike FOX’s The Masked Singer, The Masked Dancer and I Can See Your Voice, it thankfully does not feature Ken Jeong. (A little Jeong can go a long way.) Instead, 30 Rock alum Jane Krakowski is doing the hosting duties alongside Randy Jackson who will be serving at the Band Leader. Read More >>>
