'The Carmichael Show' Canceled By NBC After 3 Seasons



NBC has canceled The Carmichael Show after three seasons. The series followed Jerrod Carmichael and the rest of his family as they took on controversial topics through humor. The cast was made up of Jerrod Carmichael, playing himself, Amber Stevens West, Lil Rel Howery, Tiffany Haddish, Loretta Devine, and David Alan Grier. There were talks about the series being in renewal limbo due to cast options expiring, and things ended up not working out due to Jerrod Carmichael leaving the series. This ultimately sealed its fate. The latest season of The Carmichael Show is currently averaging a 0.8 in the 18-49 demographic. Despite the timeslot downgrade and having to air in the summer, the series is down just 13% from last year. This was a correct prediction by the TVRatingsGuide. Here are the full ratings below.

'Dear White People' Renewed For Second Season



Netflix has renewed 'Dear White People' for a second season. The first season consisted of 10 episodes and was based on the feature film with the same title. The series follows students of color facing cultural bias and injustice at a predominantly white Ivy League college. Logan Browning, Brandon Bell, Antoinette Robertson, Ashley Blaine Featherson, and Jemar Michael star in the series.

Sporcle TV Quizzes of the Week- Cop Shows Edition/Sporcle Contest Season 2 Part 3

It's the third week of the second season of the Sporcle Quizzes of the Week! It's Cops week, and each quiz will focus on cop shows, including both comedies and dramas. Here we go!

1)- 8 to 1 Television Cops by Show
This was a nice little challenge, and a change of pace from the picture quizzes I typically feature. It was pretty fun, and included Brooklyn Nine-Nine and SVU, two shows that I love. Another great thing about it is that you don't need to know every show to play it, since it's multiple choice.
My Score: 19/36

2)-  50 Years of TV Cops
While I love a good change of pace from the typical picture quizzes I include, I always love a good quiz with pictures. So here's this week's picture quiz. Here, you'll have to name the shows when given a picture of a main character that is a cop. It's nice because it mixes the classical "police shows" with some non-cop shows that just feature a cop character. It's a great quiz because really anyone can play it.
My Score: 16/20

3)- Cop Show Match
This quiz is partly knowing the shows, and partly just pure logical guesswork. Some of these shows are classics, while others are relatively obscure. It's an interesting quiz nonetheless, and one that I can't believe I got 100% correct on. I haven't even heard of a lot of these!
My Score: 50/50

RESULTS
1- Good Behavior in Animal Kingdom, 99 points
2- JB, 93 points
3- Game of Thrones PT, 69 points
4- Full Boyle, 53 points
5- Miguens, 46 points


TOURNAMENT
This is week three of the 2nd TVRG-Sporcle Tournament. For each week, the number of questions you got correct on each quiz will be added up. The first place finisher receives 3 points for placing first, as well. Also, to make things fair, please use the score for your first attempt on each quiz as your official score.

For those new to the Sporcle Quizzes of the Week, or those that need brushing up, to participate, just play all three quizzes and comment your scores on each.

Scores will be posted Friday.

Tournament Standings:

1 - Good Behavior in Animal Kingdom, 289 points
2 - JB, 272 points
3 - Game of Thrones PT, 168 points

TV Ratings 6/29/17: Battle of the Network Stars Doubles Boy Band, Zoo Tanks (UPDATED)

It was a pretty decent night for broadcast, with one new series having a solid start and a veteran show returning to save its network's Summer. CBS' Big Brother was the biggest thing in town last night, down a tenth from its premiere to a 1.6, well above anything else airing on Thursday. Things did not go so well for its lead-out, Zoo. The show was down three tenths from last year's premiere despite a much higher lead-in. This isn't promising for the show at all. ABC had a pretty high-profile debut, with Battle of the Network Stars having its series premiere (well, kinda) last night. It doubled its Boy Band lead-in, which was a low 0.5, to place at 1.0 and tie for second for the night. The Gong Show was steady in week 2. Fox's reality duo came down to Earth this week after a solid week last week, with Beat Shazam going fractional and Love Connection slipping two tenths. The results are still fine, but they're less impressive than previous outings. NBC's Hollywood Game Night and the Wall were both steady with last week's finals but up from prelims. The Night Shift ticked up to a still-low 0.7.

Finals Update: A repeat of Supernatural (-0.1) adjusted down.

"Not Ready to Make Nice"


I took the week off last week from reviewing this trainwreck due to other commitments, and I did not miss it at all. Also, I did not watch last week's episode, and I do not need to as the show is not serial anymore.

*Spoilers Ahead*

The press has found out about Scarlett being pregnant. Maddie meets with Bucky and they talk about him becoming her new manager, mirroring his work with Rayna. Juliette bosses around Hallie about recording a demo, and gets Avery mad at her. Hallie confides in Avery about her personal life, and her music, he later comforts her about where her music is going. Maddie finds out Daphne made the video about her, and freaks out, kicking out Liv. Daphne tries to convince her to stay, but she leaves anyway.

Deacon and Avery tell Juliette that Hallie's demo is not her sound. Deacon and Avery argue with Juliette, both telling her that the song Juliette has set for Hallie is not her, and not what they want the world to hear. Because Daphne made the GIF of Maddie, Deacon takes away her phone.

Maddie has a busy day of stardom ahead of her. Deacon won't give Daphne her phone back. Juliette is mad at Avery for taking Hallie's side. He tells her she needs to be a friend for Hallie. Scarlett and Gunnar's baby has gone viral.

Juliette meets with Hallie. Scarlett has an interview with a reporter, where they talk about Damien. The reporter mentions that she and Damien had an affair, which surprises Scarlett. The reporter questions if Damien is the father, which angers Scarlett, so she leaves. Hallie records her FOURTH song this episode. Deacon sees a flyer for a Jessie Caine concert. Maddie's radio interview does not go well. Daphne misses her phone and Liv. 

Gunnar comes over mad, as social media has found out that Damien is the father, and they all say that Scarlett had an affair. Juliette is mad about Avery praising Hallie's sound. She says Hallie was just using her, and using Avery. Avery does not agree with her. 

Scarlett tells Deacon she is having a girl. She is nervous about becoming a mom, so Deacon comforts her. Maddie apologizes to Daphne and tells her that she needs her. They both agree they need each other and miss Rayna. Juliette, Avery, and Hallie are in the recording studio. Hallie and Avery are making music, and Juliette accuses Avery and Hallie of having something going on between the two.  They both get mad at Juliette (she's always the villain), and leave. Maddie and Daphne track down Liv and try to get her to come back. Liv tells Daphne she belongs where she is, but Daphne wants her to come back, and tells her that she has her number. Maddie and Daphne makeup, and Maddie lets Daphne uses her phone. The Deyna family enjoys their meal together. Maddie and Daphne record a song together. We see Avery holding Cadence, Hallie crying, Juliette also crying, Scarlett looks at a tabloid, Gunnar looks at old pictures of him and Scarlett. 

Review:
-2/10


I'm not going to write the same, old rant every week, as it is the same five paragraphs of complaints I have each week. So I'll do a complaint of the week from now on.


Complaint of the week #1: This show has  no lighting. Every scene is so darn dark.
Complaint of the week #2: Where the heck is Will? Poor guy has been treated the worst this season. He is never in it. 9/16 episodes he wasn't in, or only had a scene.

World of Dance Renewed by NBC for Season 2

NBC has renewed their hit new reality series World of Dance for a second season. The dance series, starring Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, and Derek Hough as judges and Jenna Dewan-Tatum as host, has averaged a 1.96 so far this season, holding onto much of its AGT lead-in and improving the slot of last season's occupant Maya & Marty. For these reasons, this decision is no surprise to anyone. This is a correct decision for the TV Ratings Guide. Below are ratings for the show's first season:

TV Ratings 6/28/17: Big Brother Down from 2016 Debut, The F Word, Carmichael, Forever Young Dip (UPDATED)

It was a rough night to not be CBS last night, as long-running hit series Big Brother returned to rescue CBS from Summer obscurity. The series debuted at 1.7, down two tenths from 2016 but still a very strong result. It was a huge improvement on the repeats CBS had been programming there, and it was 7 tenths above its closest competitor. Its closest competitor was MasterChef, which was unaffected by the return of Big Brother. MasterChef's lead-out, The F Word, was down to a rough 0.6. It's the second newbie reality on Fox to dip to 0.6 this week, which isn't exactly promising for the network. On NBC, Forever Young was down a tenth to 0.9, which is an okay but not great result for the new show. The Carmichael Show also ticked down, tying its season low. The CW had anemic repeats as usual, with ABC repeats all down by at least one tenth each. The lower ABC repeats led into another low episode of To Tell The Truth.

Finals Update: A repeat of American Housewife (+0.1) adjusted up.

F Is For Family Renewed by Netflix for Season 3


Netflix has ordered a third season of their adult animation comedy F is for Family. The second season was released late last month, and this pickup isn't really all that surprising. The series stars Bill Burr and Laura Dern as the parents of a family in the 1970s. Season 2 consisted of 10 episodes, though no episode order for the third season has been announced. It's also unknown when the season will be released.

TV Ratings 6/27/17: Downward Dog Hits New Low for Finale, Bachelorette Hits Series Low, iZombie Steady (UPDATED)

It was an off night for a lot of show, with many dipping in the demo to hit or tie new season lows. The Bachelorette on ABC hit a new series low with a 1.2, a terrible number by the show's own standards but a great number for pretty much any other Summer show. It led into a horribly low 0.5 and 0.4 for the last two episodes of Downward Dog. On NBC, America's Got Talent dipped to 2.4, two tenths below last week but double anything else that aired in that time slot last night. World of Dance ticked up at 10, and it continues to be the standout newbie of the Summer. The CW's iZombie aired its final episode of the season last night, and it was steady at 0.3. Fox and CBS had repeats that were steady with last week.

Finals Update: NBC had some mixed results in the Finals as America's Got Talent (+0.1) adjusted up, but World of Dance (-0.1) adjusted down.

Sporcle Off-Topic Quizzes of the Week- History Edition/Sporcle Contest Part 1 (UPDATED)

Welcome to the series premiere of the Sporcle Off-Topic Quizzes of the Week. Here' you'll find quizzes on anything from Movies to Science! This week's topic is one that I've long found fascinating: History. Let the games begin!

#1- Female U.S. Senators (Picture Click)
This first quiz is my personal favorite non-TV quiz I've ever made. While I'm fascinated by all of History and Politics, I'm particularly interested in the Senate. Women in Government is also an interesting topic to me, so I combined two of my interests with this quiz. While I'd love to take credit for the whole quiz, the idea to make it a "Picture Click" was the idea of Sporcle's history editor, needapausebutton. Without him, this quiz would look totally different.

#2- US Presidents
If you've only played one History quiz on Sporcle, this is likely the one. With over 7 million plays, this quiz is by far the most played History quiz on Sporcle. And in this case, quantity (of plays) does equal quality. It's a quiz that can be very easy if you're a history buff and very difficult if you don't follow the presidents very closely. Either way, you should be able to get a few answers.
My Score: 45/45

#3- Original UN Members
I'm no expert on the UN, and I really don't know very much about it. I don't even really know the current members, so this was a challenge for me. For some reason, it didn't strike me to just start naming any country until about halfway through this. Nevertheless, I still found this quiz interesting, and it gave a snapshot of the UN from way back in 1945.
My Score: 31/51

RESULTS:
1- JB, 120 points
2- Game of Thrones PT, 75 points
3- Miguens, 53 points
4- Full Boyle, 37 points

Cable Renew/Cancel - Freeform, TNT, & Syfy: Predictions for 'Famous in Love', 'The Bold Type' & More

Famous in Love

The Bold Type
😢


Famous in Love: The Bella Thorne led comedy will likely be back for another ten episodes in the new year. Premiering to a modest rating back in April, the Hollywood drama could have performed decently in the live ratings and easily scored a second season renewal. However, Freeform thought it would be a fantastic idea to make the series available on Hulu, iTunes, VOD, everywhere, which tanked the live ratings. However, Beyond also suffered the same scheduling, and was renewed for another season. Freeform boasted a few weeks after the premiere that the soap did quite well across all platforms, so that combined with it reminds me of Beyond's situation, I. Marlene King being attached, Bella Thorne, and the dire state of Freeflop makes me think we'll likely see season two of the drama.

The Bold Type: Aired a sneak peak last week. I know you're probably like, "wait, what? I didn't even know what The Strong Kind was! Much less that it aired a sneak peek!", don't worry, not many people did. The preview was watched by an abysmal 240k people, and scored a lowest of low 0.1 in the 18-49 demo. Sure, you could argue that it was a hardly promoted-sneak peak, and it was, but that's not going to justify the show all of the sudden becoming a hit in time for its official premiere next month. Sure, it'll possibly catch a few more eyeballs, but its not going to do well enough to get renewed, the rating and buzz thus far is just too bad. One and done.

Claws: TNT has found another breakout summer hit. The network's first ever dramedy has proven to be a steady success, scoring a solid 0.4 for its premiere, growing for its second episode, and only falling back to a 0.4 last episode against heavy competition. The ratings are there, so, the ex-Scream Queens star led series will return for a second season.

Blood Drive: The quirky drama is still on a slippery ratings slope. It's done okay for Syfy summer, but nothing to brag about by any means. If it can hold some ground for a few more airings, the cheapness will likely save it, but the ratings need to remain where they are.
