CBS Subscription Service, Mission Control, and The Voice

There is so much news! I probably should have done another post earlier in the week but I was so swamped with midterms (since I’m still in college) that I just didn’t have time. This honestly may have to be 3 posts. Let’s get started! 

-CBS is launching its own subscription service for on-demand consumption for its new TV shows as well as their old ones. Since they are not part of Hulu (jointly owned by ABC, NBC, and Fox) they have been out of the subscription service for awhile and have only focused on their website (which I might add, is not very good compared to Hulu). “CBS All Access” will offer thousands of episodes from many of CBS’ current programs, classic series in its library as well as content from its local-TV station, for $5.99 a month. With the service, anyone who wants to watch CBS shows will be able to do so whether or not they subscribe to a programming package from a video distributor (aka a standalone service). http://variety.com/2014/digital/news/cbs-to-launch-svod-all-access-service-with-current-and-classic-programs-1201331028/

-Billy Eichner (Billy on the Street, Parks and Recreation) is coming to New Girl for the holidays! He will guest-star as a Grinch-like character in the Christmas episode. His character, Barry, a beleaguered airline representative the gang encounter at the airport is tired of dealing with holiday travelers and Christmas itself. Catch the episode on Tuesday, December 9 at 9/8c on Fox. http://tvline.com/2014/10/16/billy-eichner-new-girl-season-4-christmas-episode/

-NBC has canceled Mission Control before it has even aired. The show was set for a midseason debut and it starred Kristen Ritter. The main issue apparently was casting issues, which underwent recasting days after it was picked up to series. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/nbc-cancels-comedy-mission-control-741026

-Archie Panjabi (who plays Kalinda Sharma) will be leaving The Good Wife at the end of this season, after her contract has ended. She did not renew her contract because she is planning on starring in a drama pilot for CBS in the spring. No word on how she will depart, but this does not mean the end for The Good Wife, which airs Sundays at 9/8c on CBS. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/good-wifes-archie-panjabi-exit-740993

-A Bewitched remake is eyeing a comeback. There is already interest from multiple networks about a remake. The show is being written by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, who both worked on The Vow. I’ll keep you up to date on any new information that comes out about this. http://deadline.com/2014/10/bewitched-remake-series-sony-851716/

Bones has enlisted Mindy Cohn (The Facts of Life) to play Valentina, a New Age-focused doula that will “inject some lightness and levity into single-mom Daisy’s delivery.” She will appear in an early-December episode entitled “The Puzzler In the Pit.” Bones airs Thursdays at 8/7c on Fox. http://tvline.com/2014/10/15/bones-daisy-birth-baby-sweets-season-10-the-puzzler-in-the-pit/

Unforgettable has been canceled by CBS after three seasons. http://deadline.com/2014/10/unforgettable-cancelled-cbs-849580/

-Wilson Bethel (Hart of Dixie) has joined ABC’s The Astronaut Wives Club as a series regular. He will play Scott Carpenter, Rene’s (Yvonne Strahovski) laid-back husband. http://tvline.com/2014/10/13/wilson-bethel-astronaut-wives-club-cast-season-1/

-Fox’s Gotham gets a full-season order, which means they have ordered an additional six episodes bring the total number for the first season to 22. New episodes of Gotham air Mondays at 8/7c on Fox. http://tvline.com/2014/10/13/gotham-full-season-order-fox/

American Horror Story has been renewed for season 5 after the fourth season’s premiere broke FX records, with 10 million total views for the season four opener, the most-watched telecast in the network’s history. Season 5 will be 13 episodes and premiere in October 2015 with season 4 running through January 2015. http://www.eonline.com/news/587871/american-horror-story-renewed-for-season-5-after-freak-show-shatters-ratings-record

-Pharrell Williams is set to return for season 8 of The Voice as a coach. He will coach alongside Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Christina Aguilera, who is coming back from a maternity leave after sitting out the last two season. The eighth season will air in early 2015 on NBC. http://deadline.com/2014/10/pharrell-williams-the-voice-coach-season-8-850965/

-WGN America has renewed Manhattan for a second season ahead of its first season finale. The season finale airs Sunday, October 19 at 10 pm ET on WGN America. http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/10/14/wgn-america-renews-manhattan-for-season-2/

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has booked Nick Cannon (America’s Got Talent host) for a multi-episode arc. He will play Marcus, Holt’s charming and educated nephew who just moved to the city and will stay with his uncle until he finds his own place. His debut will be sometime in December. Brooklyn Nine-Nine airs Sundays at 8:30pm on Fox. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/brooklyn-nine-nine-books-nick-cannon-740674
