Specials: iHeartradio Music Festival, Night 2. Reruns: (none).

It was a very bad night for ABC in particular. Last week, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD tied for the top spot with The Voice. This week, it was in thrid place in its timeslot. Ouch. The sitcoms that followed were negatively impacted and Lucky 7, which already looked doomed, plunged. It’s now the lowest-rated show on the network.

    I grew up in the 60’s on Marvel & D.C. comics. Most of the movies have been fairly well done. The Avengers & the 1st Iron Man being the best…and Daredevil being the worst. Unfortunately SHIELD is closer to DD than Avengers. Right out of the gate we know Coulson really died & is a Life Model Decoy…if I remember that right…hey it’s been over 40 years since I read the original mags. The supporting cast is weak. The scripts are even worse. I know a certain amount of “suspension of belief” is required…but come on…
    With all the tools SHIELD has…tracking down a “superhero” or a girl in a van would be child’s play. The second show had more flaws (and boring) than I have time…or interest…in detailing. At a guess…I’d set the over/under for cancellation at 10 shows. The suits would normally kiss this off at 6 shows but…hope and desperation…that they can capture the movie magic…will allow this dud a little more time. Too bad…show was a great idea poorly executed.

    I guess I watch way too much TV because so far, I’ve predicted correctly which shows would be canceled and which would be hits. Lucky7 was a terrible pick for a scripted show. On another website, I got to see all of the shows being vetted in May for the 2013 – 2014 seasons. All of the comedies looked terrible, but I did pick the shows that I thought had the best chance to succeed. I want you to know there were about 100 shows in the chart, with names of actors and short storylines. What they passed up was eye opening for me. There were some truly wonderful shows that would have been very successful! I don’t know if the people who do the picking are not all there mentally, or maybe they needed to get a martini so badly, they put it up on the wall and threw darts, but some fantastic sounding shows were turned down :-0 .After season after season of stupid reality shows, I have sensed from We, the people, who WATCH THEM (or not) are reality showed out and WANT some really decent scripted shows. More than is offered to us this season, that’s for sure! So the older shows smashed the new shows ( even Shields was down from last week!) and trounced the guts out of the comedy shows. Now if I was head of entertainment at the networks, I would be turning this Titanic debacle around tomorrow, go back to some of the great shows that were passed by and get some of them on the air ASAP. But there is another side to this. It’s kind of fun to know I have better viewer sense than those who make the big bucks simply to find and air a great show. Sure Isn’t rocket science! But, like our government, making sense doesn’t seem to be a priority to these knuckleheads. And on and on they go. Making the same mistakes year after year. Yup, just like our government!!!
