Fall 2012 What’s On When

4 Sep

Sunday is a tough night for the first half of the TV season because of Football, and this year it gets tougher, the games will be starting later. But that didn’t stop CBS from keeping “The Good Wife” in it’s 9pm slot from last year and moving “The Mentalist” to 10pm. I wonder if this will be it for Simon Baker and crew, at the end of this season it will have 116 episodes, plenty for syndication beyond TNT.

ABC moved its breakout hit “Revenge” to 9pm, followed by rising star “666 Park Avenue”. 666 should benefit from Revenge’s lead in, but will it hold the audience.  I don’t know about you but Sunday doesn’t exactly scream drama about the devil night, maybe its just me.   “Once Upon A Time” is back at 8pm.

Look for football to win the first half of the season, and ABC to win the second.

Monday – ABC isn’t messing with the formula, its “Dancing with The Stars” at 8 and “Castle” at 10.

For as long as I can remember CBS Monday night at 9 was the time slot for comedy success. 2 Broke Girls moves into that slot this year, 2 1/2 Men has moved to Thursday.  Former champions of the 9pm slot, “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “Murphy Brown”. CBS debuts the new sitcom “Partners” in Girls old spot at 8:30.

Fox is going with “Bones” at 8, “The Mob Doctor” at 9pm, I wonder what is going to take Mob Doctor’s space when it is cancelled in 3.2.1.

But the biggest news is NBC at 10pm, “Revolution”, the new JJ Abrams show about what happens when the power is out.

 

Tuesday is still NCIS night on CBS, comedy night on FOX and low ratings night on NBC.  Same as last year.

Check out “The Mindy Project” 9:30 on Fox, Vegas at 10 on CBS and yes I will be back for more “Hart of Dixie” 8pm on The CW, followed by “Emily Owens, MD” for as long as it lasts. I don’t think Meryl Streep herself could save this one.

Wednesday is all about ABC, from 8 to 10 its the comedy block, new entry ‘The Neighbors” will be cancelled and “Happy Endings” will be back with its Wednesday family before long. But the biggest event is at 10pm “Nashville” , everyone who has seen it, says this is the one to beat this year, the new champ.

The CW has “Arrow” at 8 and “Supernatural” at 9, I know your asking is Supernatural sill on, well yes it is and this is it’s 8 season. Holy Smokes!

Thursday has three new entries, “Elementary” (Sherlock Holmes show), “Last Resort” (submarine thriller) and The CW’s “Beauty and the Beast”(this year’s secret circle).

We still have “Grey’s Anatomy” followed by “Scandal”, “The Big Bang Theory” and “2/1 Men”.  What else is on, lets see, let me think, oh yeah, VAMPIRE DIARIES.  It’s on, have you seen the trailer I posted earlier.

Friday, for me its all about “Fringe”, the final season, 13 episodes of bliss. Followed by “Blue Bloods”.

Saturday I remember when Saturday was must see TV, “The Love Boat“, “Fantasy Island”, now its repeats, crime and football.

Got all that?  Book mark Zap2it.com, best listing and news site on the net.  Even better than TV Guide.

Father’s Day, Rocks of Ages, The Killing and Fall TV 2012-2013

17 Jun

First of all Happy Father’s Day to my daddy and the daddy’s everywhere.

I saw “Rock of Ages” last night, if you grew up in the 80’s, loved the hair metal music, then this movie is for you. The plot is nothing new, dreamers in Hollywood looking for their big break, set against a boy meets girl, boy looses girl, boy gets girl back formula. But that isn’t why I went I went for the music, nothing beats Def Leopard, Poison, Guns and Roses and Whitesnake. The highpoint of the film is Tom Cruise, his performance as Stacee Jax (a cross between, Axl Rose/Vince Neil, actually every 80’s band singer) is fantastic, Cruise commits 100% to this role, and his singing is awesome. He is a rock star!

Anyone who has ever doubted Cruise’s ability needs to look no further than comparing his performance in MI4 to this to solidify his talent and movie star status. Game over Cruise wins.  There is a a lot of crazy stuff that goes on in the move, none of which I will give away. You must see this movie.  Long Live Rock and Roll.

The Killing

Rumor has it we will finally find out who killed Rosie Larsen tonight, do we still care.  Most of you don’t, ratings have been down this year and renewal is not likely. It’s a shame, the show had a good cast, but its creator and writers just couldnt pull it off, they had too many red herrings and inconsistencies. The show revealed the members of the 10th floor meeting last week, while they may be involved I think the person who put Rosie in the trunk has yet to be revealed.  Could it be Aunt Terry, or after all of this Richmond, or the mother.  

Fall Tv Schedule

I know it’s only June, but I am already looking forward to the new Tv Season, the networks released their schedules, below is a list of the shows I will be watching and possibly discussing in this space.  For the new shows I will watch the pilot and possibly one of two episodes before I decide if they get a season pass on the DVR.
