  1. TV 2018 - 2019 Renewal/Cancellation Thread

    'This Is Us' has just been renewed for three more seasons. This is the first show since 2014 for this to happen to, with 'The Big Bang Theory' receiving it from CBS. NBC also unveiled their 2019 - 2020 Primetime Schedule, featuring new series. It should be noted that the following yet to be determined shows are missing from this: Abbys A.P. Bio The Enemy Within The Village All four have had poor ratings and have been predicted to be cancelled, so the hope is basically non-existent right now and just awaiting the band-aid to be ripped off. UPDATE: All four officially cancelled, as well as ABC's "Whiskey Cavalier". Now only two shows left: 'The Code' and 'The Red Line' to be announced no later than Wednesday when CBS reveal their Fall lineup (but not necessarily, just the typical deadline).
  2. What 1 season TV Show deserved to last longer?

    i was so mad this got cancelled, it deserved so much better, but they're working on rebooting it for some reason
  3. yeah, it'd probably be a similar situation tbh. they have randall park who is pretty big, but nobody ever talks about him in the show. ever since the first season it's pretty much always been constance. and even then, asian audiences have hated the show - including the guy the whole thing was based on - so it's always been a controversial show, and in recent years the white audience has become bigger as the asian/poc audience decreased. with cra being so hot right now - and with a sequel being made - it's no surprise if the showrunner outright refused to decrease her screentime
  4. Definitely agree with that last line, but it's quite difficult when you're the star of the show and almost literally the only reason anyone even watches anymore. The writers are aware of how hot Constance is, so I don't think they'd want to decrease her time when CRA viewers are tuning in for her, and will probably tune out if she were to leave/not have as much screentime. The role she missed out on also seems like a pretty big deal, so it likely had other big star names in it that meant scheduling was a nightmare already.
  5. What 1 season TV Show deserved to last longer?

    Just some of my personal choices: Class (BBC Three) - The Doctor Who spin-off that had a good premise fell flat because the promotional team had no idea if it was for kids, teens, young adults or the sex-obsessed. Some of the acting was also a bit meh whilst the writing fell of here and there. But overall, it was a promising show with some solid work put in. It also introduced me to one of my fave actors, Fady Elsayed, who I got to work with for a little bit at the beginning of this year  Red Band Society (FOX) - This youth medical drama about kids with long-term illnesses (including eating disorders, cancer, and even a kid in a coma) had so much heart to it. The cast was brilliant, the writing was great, and it had the Octavia Spencer in a role she's never quite done before. Everything went perfectly well for it, except for its ratings. The show didn't have tons of promotion, and was somehow targeted at Glee fans despite it having a younger cast and not being a musical nor a comedy whatsoever. But nonetheless, the show was brilliant, and deserved so much better. Hellcats (The CW) - This cheerleader oriented show starring High School Musical's Ashley Tisdale as well as other notable names like Alyson Michalka, Matt arr and Gail O'Grady had a loyal following (mostly tweens that stanned Disney Channel) which, despite its devotion, wasn't big enough to keep it going beyond a season. The show had a strong cast, but they clearly tried too hard to stretch it to 22 episodes that the middle of the lot got lost in the pack and lost some viewers with it. Maybe it would have lasted in today's climate as networks are less likely to give a rookie show 22 episodes and thus forced them to stick a more condensed and easy-to-follow 12/13 episode arc. Selfie (ABC) - In the age of social media, this satirical comedy about a young woman obsessed with likes and follows seemed destined for a good few seasons. Unfortunately this Karen Gillan (Doctor Who) lead series hardly lasted a season. Receiving consistent criticism from critics across the board, as well as being frowned upon by every millennial hating adult, it lost its way during the 2014/2015 season very early on, with the show being dropped early by ABC and the final episodes being placed on Hulu at once. The show, beyond its superficial outlook had a lot of heart to it, and ended up being a show about a young woman finding her womanhood, independence and picking up an intelligent man along the way that learnt a thing or two from her "negative" habits. I'll probably add a few more down the line, but these are a few that I wish could've lasted longer.
  6. During the annual TV Blood Bath season, we lose many rookie shows that we strongly believed deserved to reach a wider audience. Sometimes it's due to the poor marketing, other times it's actor negotiations getting in the way. Or, more often than ever, it was just too niche of a programme for a mainstream audience to get into. But either way, there are tons of shows that we all wish could've had more seasons to them. So my question, much like the title suggests, is what TV show that only lasted a season (so even the 2 season shows aren't included) do you think should've been given another run, and why?
  7. she may have signed a contract for a few seasons, prior to crazy rich asians, and then another deal came her way that was only available had she been able to leave her contract via cancellation. i understand her anger as the show has deteriorated immensely and no longer serves the purpose for asian americans on tv that it used to. it's made strongly for the white gaze now (as roughly 78% of its audience is white, if i remember correctly). also, she's been more in demand than ever before ever since crazy rich asians happened, including award buzz, so i really don't blame her for being mad that she's stuck in this job. i think it's still rude considering 1) the show made her and 2) other people's jobs are on the line, but i don't think the double-booking thing is her fault or unprofessional

  11. TV 2018 - 2019 Renewal/Cancellation Thread

    Star is currently being shopped elsewhere to other platforms. If anyone is going to pick it up, I'd assume it'd be Hulu as they're pretty fond of the show already. But Disney own it so although it may not fit, maybe Disney+? Source: Deadline

  14. Nikki Cross Gets a Character Change

    i loved her on the indies, so i hope she goes back to a more natural gimmick. the one she had felt so forced it just never worked, and i know mainstream audiences would never click with it either. hopefully she gets something unique and good from this
  15. TV 2018 - 2019 Renewal/Cancellation Thread

    the showrunners seem to be still shopping it around, but the hope seems to be getting lost every single day as netflix won't give up their ownership. as if they did anything to make it the show it was today and it wasn't the viral tweets and cast that did all the promo, but whatever
