Held for Midseason
Blacklist, American Auto, Grand Crew, That’s My Jam, The Wall, Night Court, The Wheel, Million Dollar Island, and LA Fire and Rescue.
There is not a lot new on the schedule. NBC had good ratings and did not join in the killing spree with CBS and CW.
I’m excited about the new Quantum Leap. I loved the original and I’m glad this one is a continuation and not a full reboot. It has a god time slot, so it has a decent chance of survival if it doesn’t suck.
I’m sad Night Court is being held for midseason. It is the other one that is a continuation of a show that I loved. John Larroquette is back Dan Fielding. Melissa Rauch plays the new judge who is the daughter of Judge Harry Stone.
I had my doubts about La Brea at the start, but I’m ready to watch a new season. It hooked me.
