Diary of a Future President

DISNEY+ REVEALS THE FUTURE PRESIDENT

Gina Rodriguez appears to be a triple threat for a new series for the Disney+ streaming service. Rodriguez not only serves as an executive producer for Diary of a Future President, but she also directed and guest-starred in the first episode. The show was inspired by creator Ilana Peña’s childhood and is produced by Gina Rodriguez’s I Can and I Will Productions. Read More >>>

Jeopardy Greatest of all time

‘JEOPADY! THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME’

JEOPARDY! is more popular than ever and tonight the syndicated game show goes prime time with the start of a multi-night event on ABC. It’s a multi-night event because whoever the first player to win three matches wins the tournament, and so, ABC has scheduled the specials to run through Thursday the 9th, but could run as long as Thursday, the 16th (skipping next Monday so that the network can air The Bachelor).

Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist

Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist

Despite NBC’s weak attempt of showing why you should tune in to watch this new show, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is amazing. Every part of it. Well, at least the pilot is. I’m not sure how long a show can go on with this concept, but I think it will take a while to run dry. Read More >>>

Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt For the Bone Collector

Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector

Why NBC thought that this would make for a good show is a bigger mystery than any of the cases featured in the series. Granted, I’ve only seen the pilot episode, but I don’t expect things to get much better and the fact that the network is choosing to air the show on Fridays at 10 p.m. suggests that they don’t really intend on it doing well either.

Bluff City Law

Bluff City Law

Now that the fall TV season has officially started, we no longer have to hear that woman scream during the Bluff City Law commercials. That woman is Sydney Strait (Caitlin McGee) who isn’t going through a nervous breakdown. It’s just her way of coping with her job as a lawyer. Her father is the successful good guy, Elijah Strait (Jimmy Smitts) a brilliant lawyer heading up a Memphis law firm. Read More >>>

CBS's "All Rise"

All Rise

While legal dramas have always been popular, not very many have focused on the viewpoint of the judge. CBS broke new ground in 1999 with Judging Amy, which not only focused on the life of a judge, but one that was also a single mom. It provided insight on how a judge thinks and how one can be deeply torn over their cases without showing it while there is a gavel in their hand. Now twenty years later, CBS does it again with All Rise. Read More >>>

Katja Herbers and Mike Colter in CBS' "Evil."

Evil

One of the more controversial new shows on the fall schedule this year is CBS’ Evil. After watching two episodes of the show, I’m still not sure what to think of it. Is it a brilliant mess or an intriguing dialogue about faith and religion? As a lifelong Christian, I’m not convinced that the show’s showrunners and executive producers of the show, Michelle King and Robert King, have thoroughly investigated all angles on…>> (opens in a new tab)”>Read More>>>

Kennedy McMann as Nancy Drew

Nancy Drew

I admit, I never read a Nancy Drew or a Hardy Boys book in my life. But what I do know about the heroine is that up until now she has always been portrayed as a smart, sassy, tomboyish teen girl with a strong moral fiber that has always been appropriate for young school-age sleuths. While some parents will disagree with me, this Nancy Drew is not safe for kids. >> (opens in a new tab)”>Read More >>>
