Modern Family Heading to Hulu and Peacock for Streaming; NBC Schedules New Drama on Mondays

Modern Family

The long-running hit comedy series Modern Family will be available to Hulu and Peacock subscribers beginning February 3, it was jointly announced by Hulu and Peacock. As part of the unprecedented multi-year shared agreement with Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution, both Hulu and Peacock will be the dedicated subscription streaming homes to all 250 Modern Family episodes spanning 11 binge-worthy seasons. It also marks the first time the entire series will be available on a subscription video-on-demand platform in the U.S. During its historic run, the fan-favorite series was available for next-day viewing to Hulu subscribers. Following its 2009 premiere, Modern Family wrapped its hugely successful network run on ABC last spring. Throughout its impressive run it was nominated for a staggering 85 Emmy(R) Awards and won 22 including five for Outstanding Comedy Series. The series was also honored with a Golden Globe(R) Award, numerous Screen Actors Guild Awards(R) and was recognized by the AFI, Humanitas and Peabody organizations.

The critically acclaimed and high rated comedy follows the diverse, complex, and sometimes nutty Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan. The family is headed by Jay Pritchett (Ed O'Neill), who is now married to his second wife, the young, gorgeous Gloria (Sofía Vergara), assumed by some to be his daughter. In their loving care is Gloria's daydreaming son, Manny (Rico Rodriguez). Jay's driven daughter, Claire (Julie Bowen), and her real estate agent husband, Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell), want an open, healthy relationship with their three kids, which isn't always easy. Their oldest daughter, Haley (Sarah Hyland), grows up a little too fast. Middle child, Alex (Ariel Winter), is a too-smart-for-her-own-good daughter, and the youngest, Luke (Nolan Gould), is a rambunctious son. Where Phil wants to be the "cool dad," Claire is determined to keep her kids from walking in the wayward footsteps of her younger days. Jay's very serious son, Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), and his gregarious husband, Cameron (Eric Stonestreet), become doting parents to Lily (Aubrey Anderson-Emmons), the sweet Vietnamese girl they adopt. Though life isn't always tidy, politically correct, or predictable, it's always loving, heartwarming, and hilarious for this blended, extended - and truly modern - family.


Debris

NBC's new drama Debris will debut on Monday, March 1 at 10 p.m. and will air for 13 weeks through May 24. The series stars Jonathan Tucker, Riann Steele, Norbert Leo Butz and Scroobius Pip. When wreckage from a destroyed alien spacecraft scatters across the Western Hemisphere, it soon becomes apparent the pieces are messing with the laws of physics, changing lives in ways we can't comprehend. Two agents from different continents, and different mindsets, are tasked to work together to recover the debris, whose mysteries humankind is not quite ready for. NBC has not announced the new season of The Voice yet, but it is all but expected to air Mondays from 8-10pm starting March 1. NBC also is expected to announce the returns of dramas New Amsterdam and Manifest soon, along with returning comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. So much more to come for NBC's spring lineup.

ABC Midseason - Spring 2021 Schedule; NBC Renews Weakest Link for 2nd Season

Home Economics

ABC announced premiere dates for a new trio of scripted and unscripted series set to debut this spring. Hosted by award-winning actress Rebel Wilson, Pooch Perfect is a dog grooming competition series showcasing 10 of the best pet stylists in the country who, along with their assistants, compete in a series of paw-some themed challenges. The eight-episode series will kick off Tuesday, March 30 at 8:00pm ET/PT after To Tell the Truth completes its 10 episode winter run. Executive produced by and starring Topher Grace, new comedy Home Economics will join the Wednesday night comedy block, premiering April 7 at 8:30pm ET/PT following American Housewife's run for 8 episodes. From writers and executive producers Michael Colton & John Aboud, the series takes a look at the heartwarming yet super uncomfortable and sometimes frustrating relationship among three adult siblings. The network’s highly rated Thursday night lineup welcomes new Erin Brockovich-inspired series Rebel from executive producer Krista Vernoff. Starring Katey Sagal, the drama is set to premiere April 8 at 10:00pm ET/PT, alongside Station 19 and Grey's Anatomy. This means, A Million Little Things will move to Wednesdays starting April 7 at 10:00pm following the run of For Life. One other note, Thursday dramas Station 19, Grey's Anatomy and A Million Little Things will now return with all-new episodes on Thursday, March 11 (instead of the previously planned March 4). Celebrity Wheel of Fortune (8pm) and The Chase (special two-hour finale 9-11pm) will end their seasons now on March 4 (rather than Feb. 25), while The Hustler will still wrap on Feb. 25 at 10:00pm. Additional ABC premiere dates will be announced at a later time.


Weakest Link

Weakest Link, NBC's rebooted game show hosted by Jane Lynch, has been renewed for a second season. The popular series is a British import based on the iconic quiz show format distributed by BBC Studios. Production on the new season, set for 13 episodes, will begin later this year. Co-produced by BBC Studios' Los Angeles production arm and Universal Television Alternative Studio, the new version of Weakest Link delivers the fast-paced and quick-witted pillars of the original British format distributed by BBC Studios with a few modern twists. The hybrid game show sees contestants answer general knowledge questions to bank prize money across multiple rounds. At the end of each round, the contestants vote out who they perceive to be the Weakest Link remaining. In each episode, eight contestants enter the studio as total strangers but must work together to bank the maximum amount of prize money available in each round. The contestants take turns to answer general knowledge questions to build chains of correct answers. Consecutive correct answers greatly increase the value of the chain, while incorrect answers break the chain and force the contestants to start over on the lowest rung with the smallest amount money. At the end of each round, contestants vote to eliminate the fellow contestant they consider to be the "Weakest Link" in the chain. The contestant who receives the highest number of votes leaves the game as the host declares the iconic phrase, "You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye."

New Walker, Texas Ranger Scores Big for The CW; Remembering Gregory Sierra of Sanford and Son and Barney Miller, Broadcasting Legend Larry King

Walker

Walker, Texas Ranger is back and still drawing an audience! The CW's new drama Walker scored the network's largest audience for a new series premiere (prelim 2.43 million) since the debut of DC's Legends of Tomorrow five years ago (1/21/2016). Additionally, Walker earned the largest audience for any premiere on The CW since the fourth season debut of The Flash on 10/10/17. Thursday night's Walker debut saw The CW best total viewer delivery in the Thursday 8:00-9:00pm time period since just over four years (since 12/01/2016), and the single most watched episode of any show on the network since 1/30/18 - almost 3 years ago. Walker saw its total audience remain stewdy in the 8:30pm half hour (2.444 million v. 2.417 million) and retained 100% of its viewership in key demos from 8:00pm to 8:30pm. Walker outdelivered NBC's Superstore head-to-head in total viewers and tied the series with a 0.4 Adults 18-49 rating.

Walker, a reimagining of the long-running series Walker, Texas Ranger, stars Jared Padalecki (Supernatural) as Cordell Walker, a widower and father of two with his own moral code, who returns home to Austin after being undercover for two years, only to discover there's harder work to be done at home. He'll attempt to reconnect with his creative and thoughtful son (Kale Culley, Me, Myself and I) and his headstrong, somewhat rebellious teenaged daughter (Violet Brinson, Sharp Objects) and navigate clashes with his family - an ADA brother (Keegan Allen, Pretty Little Liars) who stepped in during Walker's absence, his perceptive mother (Molly Hagen, Herman's Head) and his traditional rancher father (Mitch Pileggi, The X-Files). Walker's former colleague is now his Ranger Captain, (Coby Bell, The Game). Walker finds unexpected common ground with his new partner (one of the first women in Texas Rangers' history) played by Lindsey Morgan (The 100), while growing increasingly suspicious about the circumstances surrounding his wife's death. The show also stars Jeff Pierre as Trey Barnett.

Barney Miller

Sierra starred as Detective Sergeant Chano Amengual in the first two seasons of the ABC sitcom Barney Miller from 1975 to 1976. Chano is a dauntless, beleaguered Puerto Rican detective, who is very emotionally attached to his job; as such, he has a habit of getting worked up when things go awry and, when this happens, he tends to explode in rapid Spanish should it happen. No explanation was given for his character's absence at the start of season three. The ensemble cast included Hal Linden, Max Gail, Ron Glass, James Gregory, Abe Vigoda, Jack Soo, Barbara Barrie, Steve Landesberg and Ron Carey.

He appeared as Commandante Paco Pico in the short-lived 1983 sitcom Zorro and Son. The Western sitcom also starred Henry Darrow, Paul Regina, Richard Beauchamp, Bill Dana, Barney Martin, John Moschitta, Catherine Parks and Pete Leal.

Sierra starred as Luis Alvarez, the barber father of John Alvarez (Greg Giraldo), in the short-lived 1996 ABC sitcom Common Law. The series also starred Megyn Price, David Pasquesi, Carlos Scott and Diana-Maria Riva.

Some of his other sitcom guest appearances included It's a Living, Gloria, You Again?, The Munsters Today, Growing Pains, City, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The Golden Palace, Nurses, Kirk and Ellen.

He appeared as Lieutenant Lou Rodriguez, Sonny Crockett's (Don Johnson) boss, in four episodes of the NBC police drama Miami Vice in 1984. He starred as Liutenant Victor Maldonado in the short-lived 1988 NBC science fiction series Something Is Out There.

Fri-Yay: The Network Sitcom Is In Crisis - Can It Be Saved?; TBS Announces Dates for New Series Chad and Return of American Dad!

It's time for another edition of Fri-Yay! That means we will take a look back on some sitcom happenings in recent days or weeks or other fun sitcomy stuff. It's a sitcom lover's paradise! Happy Fri-Yay!

The Conners

by Vincent

For many years, the network sitcom has been a staple of TV. Even now, in our streaming age, streaming services are filled with network sitcoms from present and past, and often, in the case of shows like The Office, Seinfeld, and Friends, they're among the most popular shows of their respective streaming services. And yet, on network TV, there is a serious lack of hit network sitcoms. Even reliable hits from past years, like The Conners, The Goldbergs and Big Bang Theory spin-off Young Sheldon, have dropped to series lows this year. While ratings in general continue to slide downwards, ratings for network sitcoms are falling faster than network averages. There are some genuine drama hits on network TV, from established series like This Is Us, Grey's Anatomy and NBC's Chicago trilogy to newer favorites like 9-1-1 and Station 19. And that's not even including reality and game shows, where Fox's The Masked Singer is reigning as the most popular show on TV. But as of right now, there is no big, landmark sitcom on network television. There's no Big Bang Theory or Modern Family or The Office that stands as a hallmark of the network that props all other shows up. There's some modestly-rated, decent-sized hits (like the aforementioned shows), but no major smashes. And even if you take critical acclaim into account, nothing is drawing raves the way shows like The Good Place did just a few years ago.

So will this continue? I have to imagine there will be a landmark show to break through sooner or later. Sitcoms have gone through rough patches before - most recently in the time between Friends ended and The Big Bang Theory and The Office took off to new heights, there was no real smash hit sitcoms, just some modest hits. Still, the TV landscape has changed so much that the next sitcom hit might not look like the hits of the past. Perhaps it will be a streaming series - there have been some successful sitcoms on streaming services, like Grace and Frankie and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, but nothing blockbuster to the levels of the biggest streaming shows. The closest has been possibly Schitt's Creek, which is actually a cable sitcom (Pop TV) but took off on Netflix. So what will be the next big sitcom hit? The networks certainly hope it'll be one of their own. But has TV changed too much for a broad, hit comedy to make it? Only time will tell.


Chad

TNT, TBS and truTV unveil March and April premiere dates for three new and two returning shows. The programming slate includes TBS' new single-camera comedy Chad (April 6) and returning top-rated animated comedy American Dad! (April 19). Two new series join truTV's line-up, including limited series Double Cross with Blake Griffin (March 19-20) and magic prank show Big Trick Energy (April 15). Rounding out April, as previously announced, the 27th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards(R) will be simulcast on April 4 on both TNT and TBS. Chad, a single-camera comedy, follows a 14-year-old pubescent Persian boy (Nasim Pedrad) as he navigates his first year of high school on a mission to become popular. Chad's friendships and sanity are pushed to the limits as he uses every tactic at his disposal to befriend the cool kids, while enduring his mother's new dating life and reconciling with his cultural identity. Pedrad, who first made her mark on Saturday Night Live, is also creator, writer, executive producer and showrunner on Chad. The series will air Tuesdays at 10:30pm.

American Dad!

American Dad! centers on super patriotic CIA agent Stan Smith (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and the misadventures of his unconventional family in Langley Falls, VA. Stan applies the same drastic measures used in his job at the CIA to his home life, where Stan's blissfully unaware wife, Francine (Wendy Schaal), has an unfaltering loyalty that makes her blind to his unabashed arrogance. His left-wing activist daughter Hayley (Rachael MacFarlane), however, doesn't let him off so easily - and knows just how to push her father's buttons. Hayley's brother is the geeky-yet-confident Steve (Scott Grimes), a kid who spends his time playing video games and obsessing about the opposite sex. The Smith cabinet is rounded out by two rather unconventional members: Roger (MacFarlane), a sassy, sarcastic and routinely inappropriate space alien, and Klaus (Dee Bradley Baker), an attention-starved goldfish with the brain of a German Olympic skier. The series will air Mondays at 10pm.

The CW Creates Super Tuesday Event on Feb. 23; More Than Miyagi: The Pat Morita Story Arrives Feb. 5

Superman & Lois

The CW Network announced a "Super" Tuesday event on Tuesday, February 23 with the entire night dedicated to its new series Superman & Lois. The night of heroics kicks off with an expanded 90-minute series premiere of Superman & Lois (8:00-9:30pm ET/PT), immediately followed by a brand new special, Superman & Lois: Legacy of Hope (9:30:10:00pm ET/PT). The Flash season premiere will now move one week later, now airing Tuesday, March 2 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT), as Superman & Lois shifts to its regularly scheduled time period (9:00-10:00pm ET/PT).

In the show, after years of facing megalomaniacal supervillains, monsters wreaking havoc on Metropolis, and alien invaders intent on wiping out the human race, the world's most famous superhero, The Man of Steel aka Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin, Teen Wolf) and comic books' most famous journalist, Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch, Grimm), come face-to-face with one of their greatest challenges ever - dealing with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today's society. Complicating the already daunting job of raising two boys, Clark and Lois must also concern themselves with whether or not their sons Jonathan (Jordan Elsass, Little Fires Everywhere) and Jordan (Alexander Garfin, The Peanuts Movie) could inherit their father's Kryptonian superpowers as they grow older. Returning to Smallville to handle some Kent family business, Clark and Lois are reacquainted with Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui, Entourage), a local loan officer who also happens to be Clark's first love, and her Fire Chief husband Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez, Graceland). The adults aren't the only ones rediscovering old friendships in Smallville as the Kent sons are reacquainted with Lana and Kyle's rebellious daughter, Sarah (Inde Navarrette, Wander Darkly). Of course, there's never a dull moment in the life of a superhero, especially with Lois' father, General Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh, Nip/Tuck) looking for Superman to vanquish a villain or save the day at a moment's notice. Meanwhile, Superman and Lois' return to idyllic Smallville is set to be upended when a mysterious stranger (Wolé Parks, All American) enters their lives.


More Than Miyagi: The Pat Morita Story

A new film about the beloved late actor Pat Morita (The Karate Kid, Happy Days, Sanford and Son) is set for a Feb. 5 release. More Than Miyagi: The Pat Morita Story will be available February 5 on iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Google Play, DVD and Blu-ray. The Oscar-nominated actor best known for his role of Mr. Miyagi, left behind a painfully revealing autobiographical record of his much-too-brief time here on Earth, tracing his journey from being bed-bound as a boy to the bright lights and discrimination in Hollywood. Deep inside that sweet, generous, multi-talented performer seethed an army of demons, that even alcohol and drugs couldn't mask. Featuring: Ralph Macchio, William Zabka, Martin Kove, Henry Winkler, James Hong, Sean Kanan, Marion Ross, Esai Morales, Tommy Chong, Don Most, Anson Williams and more.

Saved by the Bell Renewed for Season 2 on Peacock; The Muppet Show Coming to Disney+ in February

Saved by the Bell

Get so excited! Peacock is going back to Bayside and has renewed critically acclaimed comedy Saved by the Bell for a second season. 10 episodes have been ordered. In the reimagined series, when California governor Zack Morris gets into hot water for closing too many underfunded high schools, he proposes they send the affected students to the most well-funded schools in the state - including Bayside High. The influx of new students gives the privileged Bayside kids (who never have a problem that can't be solved in twenty-two minutes) a much-needed dose of reality. Season One addressed many important topics such as race, inclusion, class and education. In the season finale, Daisy (Haskiri Velazquez) stages a walkout in order to keep the Douglas High students at Bayside. Tracey Wigfield serves as writer and executive producer for the series, alongside executive producer Franco Bario. Peter Engel also serves as executive producer. The comedy is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.


The Muppet Show

The long wait for Muppet fans is almost over! The Muppet Show, Jim Henson’s iconic variety series that started it all, will begin streaming Friday, February 19 exclusively on Disney+. In addition to the first three seasons, fans will be able to enjoy seasons 4 and 5, which have never previously been released on home entertainment. The Muppet Show stars Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, the Swedish Chef, and more in a groundbreaking twist on the classic variety show, blending original songs, sketch comedy, and guest stars into a prime-time hit for all ages. Originally premiering in 1976, some of Hollywood’s brightest stars stopped by The Muppet Show for unforgettable comedy and chaos including Steve Martin, Elton John, Liza Minnelli, Alice Cooper, Julie Andrews, Bernadette Peters, Diana Ross, Gladys Knight, Gene Kelly, and Mark Hamill. With all five seasons of The Muppet Show, Muppet favorites like Muppet Treasure Island celebrating its 25th anniversary next month, and new hits like Muppets Now, Disney+ is now the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational streaming service on Earth.

NBC has set premiere dates for its two upcoming single camera comedies: Young Rock will debut on Tuesday, Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT and Kenan will debut immediately after on Tuesday, Feb. 16 at 8:30 p.m. Both series will air through and including Tuesday, May 4. This means, following its sixth episode of the season on Feb. 9, Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist will go on hiatus and return in the spring during another night. Young Rock focuses on different chapters of Dwayne Johnson's life. From growing up in a strong and resilient family, to being surrounded by the wild characters of his professional wrestling family, to playing football at the University of Miami, the show will explore the crazy rollercoaster that has shaped Dwayne into the man he is today and the larger-than-life characters he’s met along the way. Dwayne Johnson, Joseph Lee Anderson, Stacey Leilua, Adrian Groulx, Bradley Constant, Uli Latukefu, Ana Tuisila, Fasitua Amosa and John Tui star.

Kenan

In Kenan, Kenan, a recently widowed host of Atlanta's #2 morning show, struggles to balance his job and his young daughters despite all the "help" he gets from his father-in-law and his brother/assistant/manager/house guest. Kenan Thompson, Chris Redd, Kimrie Lewis, Dani Lane, Dannah Lane and Don Johnson star.


Peter Mark Richman

Actor Peter Mark Richman (often credited as Mark Richman), who appeared as Reverend Snow in Three's Company and as Andrew Laird in Dynasty, has died. He died of natural causes at his home in Woodland Hills, California, on January 14. Mr. Richman was 93.

Suzanne Somers, Peter Mark Richman, John Ritter and Joyce DeWitt

Richman had a recurring role as Reverend Snow, Chrissy's (Suzanne Somers) father, in three episodes of Three's Company from 1977 to 1979. He appeared in the episodes "Chrissy Comes Home" (Season 2), "Triangle Troubles" (Season 3) and "The Reverend Steps Out" (Season 4). Suzanne Somers had this to say about him in a statement to People: "Comedy is musical. Peter Mark Richman and I understood the music from the very first time we appeared together on Three's Company. He knew his 'stuff.' We lost a good one. Rest In Peace Peter Mark Richman."

He played Nicholas "Nick" Cain in the 1961 films The Murder Men and The Crimebusters. He reprised the role of Nicholas Cain, a former lawyer for the mob, in the short-lived 1961-1962 NBC police drama Cain's Hundred. Richman later starred as Duke Paige in the short-lived 1971-1972 ABC detective drama Longstreet.

Peter Mark Richman and John Forsythe - Dynasty

Richman had a recurring role as Andrew Laird, a former criminal attorney who is Blake Carrington's (John Forsythe) shrewd and levelheaded chief legal counsel, in 29 episodes of the ABC prime time soap opera Dynasty from 1981 to 1984.

He appeared as Channing Creighton 'C.C.' Capwell in 28 episodes of Santa Barbara in 1984. He had a recurring role as Lawrence Carson in four episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210 from 1993 to 1994.

Some of his many television drama guest appearances included The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, Combat!, The Fugitive, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, The Invaders, It Takes a Thief, Hawaii Five-O, The Virginian, Mission: Impossible, The F.B.I., McCloud, Ironside, Barnaby Jones, Police Story, The Bionic Woman, Wonder Woman, Charlie's Angels, Vega$, Galactica 1980, Hart to Hart, Fantasy Island, Knight Rider, Hotel and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

His other sitcom guest appearances included The Love Boat in 1985 and Too Close for Comfort in 1986. He voiced The Phantom in the 1986-1987 animated series Defenders of the Earth.

Some of his other film credits included Family Persuasion (1956), The Strange One (1957), Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989) and The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear (1991).

Mr. Richman was a talented character actor. He appeared in over 130 television series and about 30 films from the 1950s before his retirement in 2011. He made only three guest appearances in Three's Company, but he left a lasting impression to fans for his memorable role as Reverend Snow. We thank him for the enterainment he brought us during his long career. He will be greatly missed.

Fri-Yay: What Does the Future Hold for Sitcoms on Streaming Services?; Disney+ Has Its Teenage Doogie Howser

It's time for another edition of Fri-Yay! That means we will take a look back on some sitcom happenings in recent days or weeks or other fun sitcomy stuff. It's a sitcom lover's paradise! Happy Fri-Yay!

The Office

by Vincent

On January 1, the unthinkable happened: The Office, arguably Netflix's biggest hit of its acquired collection, was removed from the service. Of course, it wasn't unthinkable, exactly: Netflix first announced this would be happening nearly two years ago, after NBC claimed exclusive rights for the program for its budding streaming service Peacock. But it was still a major blow that caused a lot of outcry on social media. As we enter the next phase of the streaming era - which finds networks and studios increasingly making their own, separately priced streaming services and pulling their content off of where it was previously - it begs the question: will consumers follow their favorite shows, or will they find new shows instead?

It's still too soon to tell if The Office caused an uptick in subscribers for Peacock (which has been around since the summer, but easily has its biggest promotional push now that it has acquired arguably the biggest sitcom of the past 20 years.) But on social media, people aren't responding happy to see The Office in a new home, even with the enticement of extended cuts and deleted scenes. People are angry that their favorite sitcom has been taken away from them, and they seem to prefer venting on social media rather than signing up for Peacock. You might say, "why not just sign up for Peacock? It starts at 4.99/month." But to be fair, the amount of streaming service keeps piling up. To access the library you would've had access to on Netflix alone just 5 years ago, you'd have to sign up for Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Disney+, and HBO Max. Now to add another steaming service to the mix - it's understandable why people are angry, or opting to buy The Office DVDs on Amazon instead (Amazon reported an increase in sales of them after The Office left Netflix.) Still, if Peacock (or any other competing service) continues to add more and more shows, is it possible people will cancel Netflix and migrate to it? The Netflix brand is very strong, so it's going to take a lot for that to happen. But then again, Netflix keeps losing more and more series, and the more studios and networks that make their own Netflix series, the smaller their library will get. That's why Netflix has bet so much on its original programming in recent years. But will that be enough? The streamer has had plenty of original hits, but nothing blockbuster to the level of Orange is the New Black or Stranger Things in a few years now. Plus, reports of viewing activity have shown that long-running network series like The Office tend to be the most popular shows on streaming services due to their place as "comfort TV," and Netflix - with its new policy of ending shows after 3 or 4 seasons (original sitcoms like One Day at a Time, Alexa & Katie, The Ranch, No Good Nick), and keeping seasons to 10 episodes or less - doesn't really make programming of that kind anymore. We'll see where the next few years and the splintering of streaming services leaves sitcoms, but for now, I suggest finding your favorite sitcoms on the streaming services you have and holding them tight. (Also, if you're a Netflix subscriber looking for a show to replace The Office, might I suggest Community?)


Peyton Elizabeth Lee

Genius. Doctor. Teenager. Peyton Elizabeth Lee has been cast in the leading role as Doogie Kamealoha, M.D., an all-new Disney+ Original Series. Doogie Kameāloha, M.D., a re-imagining of the popular ABC series Doogie Howser, M.D., has been picked up to series, as we previously mentioned. Kourtney Kang (Fresh Off the Boat, How I Met Your Mother) is set to write and executive produce for 20th Television. Set in modern-day Hawaii, the 10-episode comedy follows Lahela "Doogie" Kameāloha, a mixed race 16-year-old girl, juggling a budding medical career and life as a teenager. Guiding Lahela (and also complicating things) is her family, including her spit-fire Irish mother who's also her supervisor at the hospital, and her Hawaiian "Local Boy" father struggling to accept that his daughter is no longer his little girl. Stay tuned for a premiere date and much more!

HBO's Insecure Gets 5th and Final Season; Disney's Big City Greens Returns for 3rd Season

Insecure

The Emmy®-winning HBO comedy series Insecure will conclude with its upcoming fifth season. The series stars Emmy®, Golden Globe and NAACP Image Award nominee Issa Rae who heads the ensemble cast, and the new season will continue to follow our favorite characters as they evaluate their relationships, both new and old, in an effort to figure out who and what comes with them in this next phase of their lives. The fifth and final season is scheduled to begin production later this month and is set to debut later this year. Insecure's fourth season, which debuted on HBO last spring, was acclaimed by critics and fans alike. The fourth season received nine Emmy® nominations including for Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series (Issa Rae) and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series (Yvonne Orji). The series won an Emmy® for Single-Camera Picture Editing For a Comedy Series. Season four series regulars included Issa Rae, Yvonne Orji, Jay Ellis, Natasha Rothwell, Amanda Seales and Alexander Hodge. The series was created by Issa Rae & Larry Wilmore; executive produced by Issa Rae, Prentice Penny, Melina Matsoukas, Michael Rotenberg, Dave Becky, Jonathan Berry, Amy Aniobi and Jim Kleverweis. The first four seasons of Insecure are available to stream on HBO Max.


Big City Greens

Disney Channel has ordered a third season of its hit Emmy® Award-nominated animated comedy Big City Greens. The series creators and executive producers, brothers Chris and Shane Houghton (Harvey Beaks), have also expanded their roles and entered into an overall deal at Disney Television Animation. Under the agreement, the duo will continue their work on Big City Greens and develop new animated series, shorts and movies for Disney Channel and Disney+. The comedy follows mischievous and optimistic 10-year-old Cricket Green, who moves from the country to the big city with his wildly out of place family—older sister Tilly, father Bill and Gramma Alice. The series is influenced by the Houghton brothers' childhood growing up in the small rural town of St. Johns, Michigan, with many of the locations and characters inspired by their real-life family members and townsfolk.

Currently in its second season, new episodes will roll out Saturdays beginning Jan. 16 (9:00 a.m. EST/PST) on Disney Channel and in DisneyNOW and will include a special music-filled episode featuring five original songs. Season one of Big City Greens is available to stream on Disney+. Since its premiere in June 2018, Big City Greens has garnered nearly 300 million views across all social media and digital viewing platforms and currently ranks among the top five animated series across all Cable with Kids and Girls 6-11 for two quarters straight. The series' "Broken Karaoke" short titled "Stuck at Home" has over 16 million views and has become the most-watched video on Disney Channel YouTube Summer to date. The series stars Chris Houghton as Cricket Green, Artemis Pebdani (Scandal) as sweet-and-sour Gramma Alice, Marieve Herington (How I Met Your Mother) as quirky older sister Tilly Green and Bob Joles (Puss in Boots) as hard-working father Bill Green. The series is a production of Disney Television Animation and carries a TV-Y7 parental guideline.
