This last week has been a bloodbath for the big four networks as they cleared out nearly thirty shows to make room for new ones that will, hopefully, perform better. NBC alone canceled About A Boy, Allegiance, A to Z, Bad Judge, Constantine, Marry Me, One Big Happy, and State of Affairs. In their place will be what the network is describing as a schedule of ‘compelling dramas, new comedies and returning favorites.’
New dramas include Blindspot (above, starring Jamie Alexander, Thor), Chicago Med (Chicago PD/Chicago Fire spinoff, Crime of Silence (legal thriller based on a Turkish format), Heartbreaker (medical soap), The Player (starring Wesley Snipes), Shades of Bluee (effective but corrupt cops).
New comedies include Coach (limited series reboot of the Craig T. Nelson series), Crowded (Empty nesters’ grown kids move back home), Hot and Bothered (telenovela), People Are Talking (two neighbor couple who have no filters – if they think it, they say it), and Superstore (the lives of the staff of a big box store).
