Women’s Murder Club Forces Change for Men in Trees

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, ABC, News, Renewals,

Women's Murder ClubJust last month, I commented about the poor treatment Scrubs was receiving by its bosses at NBC.  Now I’m starting to feel just sorry as for ABC’s —and I don’t even watch the show!

Earlier today, the Alphabet network finally got around to picking a return date for freshman show .  What does this have to do with Trees?  Well, Club‘s three episode stint starting Tuesday, April 29th will not only force Boston Legal to find a new home elsewhere (Wednesdays @ 10pm starting April 30th), it will push Men in Trees off the calendar until….May 28th.  That means the program will essentially be left to find an audience during the small summer season. 

Now if a network really wanted to hate a show, wouldn’t it be nicer if they just came right out and said it?  Seriously—how is anyone supposed to watch the series if they don’t know when it’s going to be on?  That’s Marketing 101, people!

My Name is Earl, Paris Hilton

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (3/31)
  • Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 8pm):  The top 10 dancers take the floor tonight.  If also manages to master the fast jive, she’ll have my votes from this point out.
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8pm):  “Sheldon gets sick, but the guys refuse to take care of him because he’s such a bad patient.”  So is there such thing as a good male patient?
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30):  “Barney tries to find the mystery woman who’s out to ruin his reputation, and he uses the basketball tournament-bracket template to eliminate 64 suspects.”  Okay - if CBS can’t get around to finally renewing this series, I will give them 64 reasons why I hate them.
  • New Amsterdam (FOX, 9pm):  “When a murder victim in Chinatown murder reminds John of a son he lost in the early 20th century, the investigation leads to a ruthless crime family who are related to his offspring.”  And I thought Terminator‘s storyline was trippy.

Wednesday Ratings: Repeats Can’t Topple American Idol

Last night, the networks basically handed over their ratings to FOX.  Although American Idol is normally a sure thing, the show lucked out with a plate of reruns.

The Hills

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (3/24)
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30):  The overly-promoted Britney Spears cameo finally airs tonight.  Let’s just be happy the show is only 30-minutes long.
  • Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious (CW, 9pm):  Nicole Scherzinger gives the girls tips on vocal expression.  Sadly, advice on releasing solo albums is not something she can dish out.
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  New episode.  “A bride is murdered at her wedding.  The investigation takes the CSIs to a strip club where the bachelor party took place.”  Strip club? This would be the perfect time for another Elizabeth Berkley appearance.
  • The Hills (MTV, 10pm):  Season premiere.  I wonder if LC wore any of her own designs in Paris.  Doubt it.

How I Met Your Mother

(You can view TV Envy’s Post-Strike Television Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY (3/17)
  • Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 8pm):  Tonight’s Season 6 premiere focuses only on the men.  I think it’s safe to say Julianne Hough won’t be making it a three-peat with .
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS, 8pm):  New episode.  “Sheldon and Leonard are asked to a physics conference to present their work together.”  I’ve always wondered - if this show were to air on any other day, would it be half as successful?
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8:30):  New episode.  “Ted decides to live life like Barney on St. Patrick’s Day.”  You don’t want to know what they use as their lucky charms.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  New episode.  “Charlie teaches Alan how to break up with a woman.”  I hear hiring prostitutes can make a woman leave you.
  • The Bachelor (ABC, 9:30):  Season 12 premiere.  “Bachelor Matt Grant, a 27-year-old British financier, meets his 25 would-be soul mates.”  Apparently in America, you can finally afford to woo twice as many women as you can in the UK.

MONDAY (3/3)
  • The Royal Family (ABC, 8pm):  hosts a special that documents a year in the lives of the British royal family.  Wow - they’re letting people get to know them better?  That’s such a Diana move.
  • Terminator:  The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 8pm):  “In the two-hour finale, John and Derek are at odds over whether Cameron can be trusted.”  Meanwhile, I’m still trying to figure out whether I’ll miss the show.
  • Welcome to the Captain (CBS, 8:30):  “Marty gets Josh an interview with the president of Paramount.”  At least one of them will have a job when the show’s cancelled.
  • The New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS, 9:30):  “Matthew goes to therapy to discuss intimacy issues and learns he is too dependent on his sister.”  Did anyone else shudder when they read that sentence?
