So, I was having a pleasant Tuesday evening, taking in my usual broadcast line-up -  as I get some work done -  then just when the 9pm program almost ended I discovered that the CW has decided not to order further episodes, beyond the original 13, of Emily Owens, M.D.

According to reports the show is performing drastically below the required ratings, to remain viable among its targeted demo (18-49). It was also the lowest rated premiere for the network.  

Well just in case you wondered, this is what I really think of the whole thing….

Emily Owens, M.D, is a decent show! Mamie Gummer is talented and refreshing. Of course I see the similarities to Meredith Grey over at ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. However, Gummer’s character is particularly quirky and full with her exclusively charming attributes. 
I guess just like anything else on television, it is not filled with enough scandalous drama to maintain the attention of the targeted demo. How sad! 
Similar to why I follow Parenthood on NBC, though the CW show is somewhat soft on story lines, E.O. M.D. has heart and is wholesomely a breath of fresh air…….Yep, Just call me weird America!

Check out this video and get ready for the next season of ABC’s Once Upon a Time (OUaT). #MyTVWatch2Cnets

I am certainly excited about the return of the revolutionary television series. 

Go OUaT!

I heard about the launch via word-of-mouth, then I checked it out…

Not a bad start for Earvin Magic Johnson’s new network; “Aspire”.

It was refreshing to see classics like the legendary situation comedy ‘Julia’ and detective dramaedy ‘I Spy’. I am quite encouraged by this launch as I currently watch Cab Calloway performances in black and white. 

I found the channel at #120, where ABC’s Soapnet was previously located. However each cable provider has information concerning how to find the channel on their websites.

I believe that this is a good start for Aspire. I look forward to seeing where the channel is going next. 

Cheers Magic!

#MyTVWatch2Cents  Say It Ain’t So!

Ratings? ….Co-host Chemistry? Whatever it is, Ann Curry is preparing to make a transition out of the Today Show.

“It is unknown whether Curry has accepted a deal yet. She is currently being represented by attorney Robert Barnett — who helped Christiane Amanpour negotiate her dual role at CNN and NBC News after leaving “This Week” — in the talks.”

The new family drama, ‘Political Animals’, is carded to hit the air waves - Sunday July 15th at 10pm on USA Network. I look forward to seeing what all the hype is about. At first glance, the cast is A grade and promises to stir up the tension.

'Falling Skies', Late but In Love

It just seems like I can’t get enough of ‘Falling Skies’ on TNT. Today, I am spending my time playing catch up on the latest episode. 

I actually got into the series pretty late. I watched Episodes 1 to 3 all in one-go, about a week ago, On Demand. I’m a little late but simply in love with this series. 

While remembering those who fought for the independence of this great country I am getting sucked into the story of an American community that comes together to ward off new enemies following an alien invasion. 

I honestly do not want to envision this as a reality for this country (or any part of the world) in any way, shape and form. Perhaps that is what makes this program so enticing, the fact that it is a fantasy for the most part. I am a shoe-in for fantasy/action/adventure television shows and films but this one is well done and captivating. It takes me back to the time when I followed 4400 on USA Network.

Moreover, it is great to see Noah Wylie regularly on television again. Not to mention, I always enjoy Will Patton both on the little and big screen.

If you haven’t, you should check out ‘Falling Skies’, Sundays at 9pm on TNT.

Cheers to thrilling TV!

Here's the Report: 'Newsroom' premieres - The verdict is still out

After hearing about the much anticipated “Newsroom” on HBO, for months, I have finally had the opportunity to view it. 

The first thing that appealed to me was the cast assembled. Nothing gets better than viewing Jeff Daniels, Sam Waterson, Emily Mortimer, Alison Pill, Dev Patel and Olivia Munn all on the same program. 

"From the mind of Aaron Sorkin, creator of The West Wing and screenwriter of The Social Network and Moneyball, comes The Newsroom…"

Ratings sources report that 2.1 million viewers tuned in for the premiere on Sunday evening, thus making this one of the largest premieres for HBO. 

Still, besides enjoying the ensemble cast on screen, the verdict is out on the series as a whole. For one thing, there sure is alot of screaming amongst the actors. However, I will be tuning in again next week, thus far. Check it out!

"Some of TV’s funniest women still have an issue with former "Two and a Half Men" showrunner Lee Aronsohn’s “labia saturation” comments. And for good reason.

During a roundtable interview for The Hollywood Reporter, Martha Plimpton (“Raising Hope”), Laura Dern (“Enlightened”), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep”), Julie Bowen (“Modern Family”), Zooey Deschanel (“New Girl”), Christina Applegate (“Up All Night”) and Jane Lynch (“Glee”), discussed the now infamous comment.”

At any possible time, it is quite easy to tune in and see Diners, Drive-ins and Dives with Guy Fieri on the Food Network. 

As I’m taking in the energetic Food Network Star and vicariously enjoying the food that he presents in each episode, I begin to recall how he got his start. 

Fieri was the winner of Season 2 of Food Network Star. “In 2010, the New York Times reported that Fieri brought an “element of rowdy, mass-market culture to American food television,” and that his “prime-time shows attract more male viewers than any others on the network.”“

Although Fieri may just be the most famous winner of the reality competition show, do you know who the other winners have been over the years? Click on the highlighted title above for more information.

"One of the most beautiful cast on television" is one description that I would assign to the likes of Patrick J. Adams, Gabriel Macht, Gina Torres - just to name a very. 

With an intriguing story line and fashion to die for, this USA Network series keeps ‘em coming back. The season 2 premiere of Suits aired on Thursday night, and did not disappoint!

Despite all the controversy surrounding the broadcast of the upcoming The Glass House, it appears that it will hit the air as planned. 

CBS is not happy about how much the show resembles it’s own summer hit ‘Big Brother’. 

The big question is however, will America tune in? The viewing numbers will be very telling about the success of the new program.
