that time again

Several more of the television shows I enjoy have gotten their cancellation notices this week. The LA Times Show Tracker has an updated list. Good-bye to "New Amsterdam," "Welcome to the Captain" and "Miss Guided." We already knew that "Journeyman" was done. I found out about "Back to You" and "Aliens in America" on Saturday.

This is the week that the networks announce their new fall schedules. As in the past, I will be clicking daily on various sites for updates. In addition to Show Tracker, I like TV Squad and the coverage by The New York Times, USA Today and The Hollywood Reporter.

Today's big story was the formal announcement that Jimmy Fallon will replace Conan O'Brien when Conan leaves "Late Night" to take over the "Tonight Show." Many people are wondering what will happen with Jay Leno when his "Tonight Show" run ends. My friend Bean came up with a great idea months ago. NBC should put Leno on at 10:00 p.m. Why not?

This kind of reminds me of when I wondered what would happen when Drew Carey took over the Price is Right. It didn't hurt ratings as much as I thought it would.

I will miss "Back to You". I just started watching it, and it is good. I wish they had given it more time to NOT see Deborah and Frasier. I think they have great chemistry. . . Like Marc and Kim & Frank

Back to You may still have a chance. It's being looked at by (I think) CBS or one of the other networks anyway according to yesterday's People blog. I hope it works out, I love Kelsey & Patricia together, they were just hitting their stride when the strike took them out.
