This year was full of amazing new TV Programs for all of us to watch and enjoy. When thinking about what my favorite new shows were that started in 2018 just so many great ones come to mind. There were some that were “Comedies”. There were some that were “Dramas”. There were some that were “Mini- Series or Limited Series” events.

Girlboss, Oh Girlboss…… Thoughts on the One Season Only Show That Was “Girlboss”……..
Okay, I like to watch shows that sometimes are ones that I like to refer to as “One Season Only”. Meaning shows that received in some cases that “all too soon cancellation pink slip” and were not given the time to grow and maybe “get there” creatively. I’ve learned from watching enough TV (somehow just saying that sentence I get a little bummed, but any who….) that given some time any “just eh, yeah it’s okay” show can go to “OMG! UM, YES! THIS SHOW…… I LOVE IT!” Well, I might be just a little on the dramatic side there (per usual), but you get what I mean.

There once was a show on HBO called “The Leftovers”….
People say all the time that we are living in the golden age of television. And it’s completely the truth.

It’s May, so TV fans everywhere, know what that means. TV cancellations are here. It doesn’t matter whether it is a new show or a seasoned one. There’s a chance that your favorite show is in danger of getting that dreaded cancellation notice. This time of the year in May, as with any other year, the major television networks hold what are referred to as “The Up-Fronts”. This is the time when the major networks unveil the new line-up of shows for the upcoming fall season. It’s in this time, that the networks show the new shows that got picked up, as well as returning favorites that got that shiny golden ticket of a show renewal. It’s also at this point, where shows that have been considered “on the bubble” might not get that golden ticket of renewal. Instead, a show might receive the news of a “dreaded cancellation notice”.
