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.

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.

ABC has turned down Hannah Simone's Greatest American Hero. Kinda disappointed, but I never actually saw the pilot. Networks used to dump all their unsold pilots in the summer; I wish they still did it. Somebody leak this!

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).

I kept reading and rereading the cast list for The End of the World as We Know It and I couldn't find Rich Evans's name. Must be some kinda goof...

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.

The Aladdin remake is one of few films that I am actively hoping underperforms. The more we can convince Disney to stop giving animation the finger with these remakes, the better.
I can't believe Russell fricking died.
My tv provider has come to an agreement with Disney.
All channels of Disney (including FOX)
Are going to stay next month.

Rupavahini is airing SeaQuest yet with a local theme song despite the series airing with Sinhala subtitles.
