SitcomsOnline Digest: ABC Cancels Wonder Years Reboot; Byron Allen Makes $10 Billion Offer to Buy ABC

Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! This would typically be a busy and exciting week where we tell you about all of the brand new fall series that debut this week, and we're so excited about that... but no. There are still two entertainment industry strikes, and we have almost nothing to offer in this respect. But, it's still a busy new week anyway, with a lot of questions about the future of ABC as well as their cable networks. Let's get going!

HIGHLIGHTS FROM SITCOMSONLINE.COM AND AROUND THE WEB

  • The Wonder Years reboot on ABC got a lot of attention when it started, but after a very disappointing second season in the ratings (ABC's worst show of the year), it has been canceled. (Variety)
  • We've got our first look at the Frasier reboot. (Deadline)
  • Bill Maher has decided he is returning to the air next week despite the strike, but will other late night talk show hosts look for a loophole to return too? (Deadline)
  • If you have Spectrum, the second largest pay TV provider in the nation, you now no longer have cable channels such as Freeform (and never will), as the provider worked out a deal with Disney that brought back ESPN, Disney Channel, and FX, but includes the permanent removal of many other channels, leaving many to wonder if Disney is going to shut them down in the near future. (Hollywood Reporter)
  • Meanwhile, Nexstar has been having exploratory talks with Disney about buying ABC, and entertainment mogul Byron Allen has went a step further to make a $10 billion offer to purchase ABC and several of their cable networks (including FX and National Geographic). (Reuters)
  • While Byron Allen is trying to buy ABC, his syndicated late night series Comics Unleashed is coming to CBS on Tuesday, as they need strike material to replace the already ended Late Late Show with James Corden. (Hollywood Reporter)
  • TBS has acquired Modern Family. (SitcomsOnline)

WEEKLY PLANNER (SEPTEMBER 16 - SEPTEMBER 22)

  • Catchy Comedy is going very old this week with a binge of Our Miss Brooks.
  • American Horror Story returns to FX on Wednesday.

SitcomsOnline Digest: Warner Bros. Television Suspends Deals with Top Creators; Fran Drescher Re-Elected President of SAG-AFTRA

Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! Once again, it seems like we're hitting TV (at least as we know it) doomsday, as we enter a mostly non-existent fall TV season, with strikes that will never end and a blackout dispute between Spectrum and cable channels owned by Disney that has both sides saying it may not even be worth settling. Nonetheless, we're here with some highlights for you. Let's get going!

HIGHLIGHTS FROM SITCOMSONLINE.COM AND AROUND THE WEB

  • With a writers strike that appears to have no end still ongoing, Warner Bros. Television has suspended some deals that they have with top creators, though it is anticipated that the suspended time will be added to the end of the contracts. (Deadline)
  • Fran Drescher has been re-elected as SAG-AFTRA president, in the middle of the on-going strike. (Hollywood Reporter)
  • Like many shows, Saved by the Bell did some things that seemed acceptable in the 90s that wouldn't be so acceptable today, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar is talking all about it in a podcast. (CNN)
  • When Bob Barker recently died, many noticed he had not made any public appearances in a while, and that may be because he suffered from Alzheimer's disease for years leading up to his death. (Deadline)
  • Networks need something scripted to air in the current drought, so Fox is going with encores and CBS is looking down under to Australia. (SitcomsOnline)

WEEKLY PLANNER (SEPTEMBER 9 - SEPTEMBER 15)

  • Catchy Comedy has a binge of My Three Sons this weekend.
  • A new season of The Morning Show arrives on Wednesday on Apple TV+.
