Now that networks have mostly decided what TV shows are returning and which are cancelled, it’s time to turn our attention to the new shows that networks are taking a chance on this fall. The survival rate of new series isn’t great – some years are particularly bad – but the trailers for shows debuting provide our first glimpse of what may be worth investing time in. I generally refuse to take a gamble on new series any longer – once bitten, twice shy and all that – but I am intrigued by the revivals. Check out the trailers below and sound off in the comments if you see anything you are willing to take a flyer on – or if you see any candidates for early cancellation. I personally think that Young Sheldon is a potential misstep, but I also thought that The Big Bang Theory looked terrible, so what do I know?
I finally leave tomorrow morning for my mini-vacation to Austin. I’m not packed, I have a ton to do before I leave, work is driving me crazy, and I’m exhausted – which is pretty much par for the course for any of my trips. It’s always semi-organized chaos when I go away and this trip is no different. But it always falls together and I’m sure I’ll have a good time – Austin has been on my list for quite some time as a place I wanted to visit and it will be nice to spend time with old friends. I just need to get through the rest of today first.
So while I try to get everything done, get yourself caught up on all the pop culture that you might have missed in the last week. It’s been a crazy week for television in particular – lots of cancellations, renewals, and pickups happening in the last few days. Find out what’s what with this week’s installment of the roundup.
What happened to spring? It’s been cold and rainy here lately, especially on the weekends. It’s kind of a bummer. I’m sure it’s good for the grass and the plants, but it’s not so nice for humans who want to be outside. I’m not a big outdoorsy person, but this is the time of year when it’s fun to sit outside on a patio with an adult beverage. Soon enough it will be too hot and humid to want to spend much time anywhere without air conditioning. So it would be nice to not have turn the heat back on in May. Remind I said all of this when I am complaining about how hot it is in Austin next week.
But enough about out rainy spring – there is pop culture new to be had. As usual, the roundup catches all of the pop culture news that you might have missed. So while I dig out my sweatshirts and umbrellas, enjoy the latest from the world of pop.
