TVLine just did its yearly poll for which bubble shows their readers most wanted to be saved. Here is my list of the top five yet to be renewed shows I want to be saved:
All American – The based on a true story show about a football player from Crenshaw who moves to Beverly Hills to play for Beverly Hills High. It has the requisite CW teen drama, football, and a good mix of Beverly Hills drama and life or death Crenshaw issues. I’m very invested in the lives of the characters and want to see more.
Single Parents – A sitcom about a group of single parents. Great cast and consistently funny. Much better than most comedies on TV today.
For the People – A Shondaland show about federal prosecutors and public defenders. Love the cast and so far the drama focuses on the cases more than romance. If they can keep it that way it can be a very good show.
Whiskey Cavalier – It’s fun and funny. We need more fun these days. It leans way too far into the will they/won’t they trope, but I forgive them because I enjoy the show so much. Great supporting cast.
AP Bio – One of the funnier shows on TV. I like it. My kids like it. Not a weak point in the show or the cast.
There are more on the list that I watch and enjoy – Madam Secretary, Station 19, American Housewife, Speechless, Fresh Off the Boat – but the five above are the ones I would be most upset about.
