Right on the heels (more like two weeks later) of a Star Wars-themed Snippet Wednesday, here's one with more than just a little bit of a TV lean. Coolness?
I'm not going to recap every single television announcement from the last couple of weeks. If you want to see all those, check out TV By the Numbers. I just want to talk about the stuff that I found interesting or notable.
Sure, we lost How I Met Your Mother at the end of this season, but, Katie and I have decided to nix others. Among them 2 Broke Girls, the schtick of which we've grown tired. I'd actually be willing to give up on shows like Mike & Molly and Scandal, which are also getting tiresome, but the axe hasn't dropped just yet. We've also got the entire half season of Chicago PD that I'm not sure we even want to start. We'll see how the summer goes.
There are a few shows the networks canceled that we will miss. They are Men At Work, Friends With Better Lives, and Growing Up Fisher. At least TBS gave MAW three seasons, but FWBL and GUF didn't even last a half season each. Sad.
After this coming season, we can count amongst planned casualties Two and a Half Men, Parks & Recreation, and Cougar Town. I'm okay with 2.5M and CT dying, but I love P&R sooo much. So does Katie. We'll miss it immensely.
I still can't believe that with all the hype, CBS didn't pick up the spin-off sitcom How I Met Your Father. Not saying I'm glad it didn't happen, but still surprised.
I have not even an iota of desire to watch CSI: Cyber. Not one. The franchise is dead. Stop beating a dead horse.
Not that I'm even close to wanting to quit watching either Castle or Hawaii Five-0, but I really wish they'd just drop the side stories of the murder of Beckett's mom and the mystery of McGarrett's mom, respectively. Please. Just. Stop.
