  4. I don’t think APB will get a second season. 24 I believe will. APB is below Lucifer in the demo ad viewers. I hope it makes fox annoyed they threw one of my favorite shows off until freaking May!

    Timeless is likely toast. Was it a conclusive finale? Quantico is off until late March and I heard the last episode was more confusing than ever before (this is one reason people aren’t tuning in, way too much)

    Supergirl episode was very amusing.

    • Amusing to see Channing Dungey’s first renewal do so poorly.

      Less amusing is the complete lack of accountability in executive circles in Hollywood.

      If you were firing duds like that at Coca-Cola you’d long be out in the street…

      APB and 24 are flops (unsurprisingly when it comes to the 24 remake-with-a-Black-actor) Doesn’t mean they won’t be back of course.

      In these sadly PC times I feel the need to confirm that what I mean is that Black actors deserve intelligent shows with Black leads (dare we say a good original family sitcom?) instead of remakes where they get to play a warmed-up version of a part played by someone else…

  5. What a disaster!! CBS “triumphs” with a bunch of low-rated shows. Compared to where it was during the Two and a Half Men years and cry… 🙁
