MURDER IN THE FIRST RENEWED FOR SEASON THREE BY TNT
WICKED CITY CANCELLED BY ABC AFTER ONLY THREE EPISODES
In the wake of Paris terror attacks ‘Supergirl’, ‘NCIS: Los Angeles‘ on CBS and TNT’s ‘Legends’ pulled their originally scheduled episodes on Monday night (Nov 16) due to the 3 shows all having terrorism related storylines.
The CBS dramas replaced this weeks episodes next weeks instead, and TNT repeated the S2 premiere of ‘Legends’.
No news on when the postponed eps will air yet.
In a surprising move CBS has given chat show ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ the coveted post ‘Super Bowl 50’ slot, where scripted shows such as ‘The Blacklist’, ‘New Girl’ & ‘Elementary’ have previously had the honor.
It’s the first time a chat show has aired directly after the ‘Super Bowl’. ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’ also gets a piece of the action following Colbert (and the local news) that night.
Speaking of CBS, last Tuesday Nov 10, I predicted CBS running late on Sunday night (Nov 15) by up to 30 minutes in some regions. They started 27 mins behind schedule. Fifth week in a row I’ve called almost exactly the CBS schedule times.
This Sunday Nov 22, might see minor delays in a few areas but should be only a few minutes if they run late at all in the Eastern and a few Central regions.
THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER CANCELLED BY FX AFTER ONE SEASON
‘Chicago Med’ premiered last night and the early ratings indicate a solid start with a 2.2 demo number and 8.6 million viewers. I must add these figures could go up in the final numbers issued later.
Finally some sad news. One of Rugby Union’s greatest ever players Jonah Lomu passed away at only 40 years of age.
He was so dominant in his sport, NFL teams The Denver Broncos and Dallas Cowboys were both interested in signing him up but a rare kidney disease cut short his career and possibly his life. R.I.P
Here’s an advert featuring Mr Lomu for Pizza Hut UK back in 1995.
