Sometimes, the material writes itself.

As you might guess, I'd like to make this another of those annual things, but the site HAS done it in the past. First in 2004 (it was since deleted for its datedness), and then two years ago in an issue of BANG (and I decided not to keep doing them there because of how sparsely the mag comes out -- the material has to remain somewhat timely).

So what are YOU looking forward to? That "Cool Kids" sure sounds hip.

I kinda want to see "Cool Kids", if only for Vicki Lawrence (this may be her first regular TV show in years).
Lawrence actually had a recurring role in NBC's "Great News" which just wrapped its run (it could still return for another season, but the odds aren't in its favor).

If it's not gonna be Jason Alexander, then probably a modern musical theatre person (most likely Idina Menzel or any one of the Schuyler sisters from Hamilton) will sing the new Greatest American Hero theme.
Also being a feminist doesn't necessarily mean hating men... it's mostly just eliminating the patriarchy.

According to the CBS Upfront, God Friended Me is a go. "Untitled Austen Earl and Tim McAuliffe" also made it under the new title, Happy Together. The Murphy Brown reboot, also mentioned in your article, is also being tipped for success. Unfortunately Cool Kids is being put on Fridays (something called "Rel" is put on Sunday instead).

Finally, the Charmed reboot is on the way according to the CW's upfront. So that's five of the 15 shows listed that have gone to series this season. How will all these shows do? Only way to find out is to sit back and watch.

I can't speak for the comics, but this may be the best year for the Spider-Man franchise in my lifetime.
This is as weird as the time McDonalds served pizza in the early 1990s .

At first, I thought Brian Hohlfeld working on many shows Nicole Dubuc worked on was just a coincidence . It turns out they're married. I previously thought the Paul Dini / Misty Lee marriage had the largest age gap (he was born in 1957 while she was born in 1976), but this is the one that's larger (he was born in 1957 while she was born in 1978, making 21 years). I'm not complaining, but this is surprising.
