11 Most Disappointing TV Shows of 2017

24 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Winter and spring television seasons are the most crowded.

Maybe that's the reason they also deliver the most duds. 

It's not even April yet, and we have more than enough disappointments to get us through the entire year, with another couple of hands full of new programs yet to air this spring!

Some of the series' misfortune comes because there seems to be an impasse between critics and viewers, and a critical review could mean viewers never see a show, but those who do fall in love with it. What does that even mean?

Do you agree or disagree that the following 11 programs were disappointments? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

 

1. 24: Legacy - Fox There were big hopes for this reboot with a stellar cast and the writing team back on board to usher in a new hero in place of Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer. The performances feel phoned in, »

CBS Renews 16 Series, Including Bull, Hawaii Five-0, Scorpion, Blue Bloods and MacGyver — What's Missing?

23 March 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

CBS has its eye on the 2017-18 TV season, handing out early renewals to 16 more of its current series, including rookie series Bull, MacGyver, Kevin Can Wait, Man With a Plan and Superior Donuts

Also scoring pickups: Venerable procedurals Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods and NCIS: Los Angeles, as well as Madam Secretary, Scorpion, NCIS: New Orleans, Life in Pieces and Mom. No-brainer renewals for non-scripted institutions Survivor, 60 Minutes and 48 Hours brings the number to 16 (or 18, if you include the already greenlit The Big Bang Theory and NCIS).

CBS Renews 18 Series, Including Freshman Shows ‘Bull,’ ‘Kevin Can Wait’

23 March 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS has renewed 18 shows for the 2017-2018 season, including freshman series such as “Bull” and “Kevin Can Wait,” the network announced on Thursday. Among those 18 are the previously announced renewals for “The Big Bang Theory” and “NCIS.”

The shows renewed to date include six comedies such as “Big Bang” and “Life in Pieces”; nine dramas including “Blue Bloods” and “Madam Secretary”; newsmagazines “48 Hours” and “60 Minutes”; and reality series “Survivor.” “Big Brother” was previously renewed for two more seasons back in August. In addition, five freshman shows are part of the network’s early renewals: dramas “Bull” and “MacGyver;” and comedies “Kevin Can Wait,” “Man With a Plan,” and “Superior Donuts.” Noticeably absent from the freshman renewals is the Joel McHale series “The Great Indoors.” The Allison Janney-Anna Faris comedy “Mom” was also renewed, less than a week after Variety exclusively reported that the show was nearing a pick up for a fifth season.

The rest of the cast includes Katrina Law, Drew Van Acker, »

CBS Moves ‘Training Day’ To Saturday; ‘Amazing Race’ To Replace It On Thursdays

10 March 2017 5:45 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

We have seen the last of Training Day on Thursday. The modestly rated midseason drama series will air the rest of its 13-episode order on Saturdays. Training Day, Bill Paxton’s last TV series, got off to a slow start in the Thursday 10 Pm slot, which saw the quick demise of two other new drama series over the past year in Rush Hour and Pure Genius. Training Day started off with a 0.9 Live+same day rating in 18-49 and 4.7 million viewers for its premiere. After a few weeks… »

CBS Sends 'Training Day' to Saturdays, 'Amazing Race' Returning Early

10 March 2017 5:45 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Training Day will now be schooling viewers on another night.

CBS has decided to shift the struggling freshman drama from its choice Thursday time slot to the low-pressure Saturday on the heels of low ratings. It's another decisive move for the network, which canceled Katherine Heigl starrer Doubt in February after just two episodes.

Training Day's narrative has been a particularly sad one. Almost as soon as it premiered, star Bill Paxton died of a stroke during surgery. The 61-year-old actor left behind an incredibly rich body of work, including roles on HBO drama Big »

Performer of the Week: Reese Witherspoon

4 March 2017 5:38 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Reese Witherspoon

The Show | Big Little Lies

The Episode | “Serious Mothering” (Feb. 26, 2017)

The Performance | Oh, how we’ve missed this Reese Witherspoon. The living and breathing firecracker from the Election/Legally Blonde era who would toggle from bitchy to emboldened to entitled to vulnerable in the span of seconds. The one who could deliver a well-crafted one-liner with Bette Davis-like precision before melting your heart with a simple glance.

Luckily, with HBO’s Big Little Lies, the Oscar winner has triumphantly returned to her darkly comedic wheelhouse, and that was especially so with Sunday’s second episode. »

TV Ratings: ‘Chicago Med’ Rises in Post-‘Voice’ Slot on Otherwise Slow Night

3 March 2017 8:44 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When you have a show like “The Voice,” you use it whenever you can. Thus NBC Thursday night ran a special edition of the singing competition, lifting its entire night. (The absence of ABC’s Shondaland shows likely didn’t hurt, either.) With “The Voice” bringing in a healthy 2.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic and an average audience of 10.64 million viewers, “Chicago Med” rose significantly from its usual performance, to a 1.7 rating in the demo and 8.77 million viewers. Bolstered by a lead-in nearly twice the size (in the demo) of last week’s “The Blacklist” season finale, “The Blacklist: Redemption” ticked up a couple tenths to a 1.0 in the demo and 4.73 million viewers.

Fox’s “MasterChef Junior” clocked in at a 1.1 and 3.6 million viewers. “My Kitchen Rules” ended its season with a slightly up 0.8 and 2.25 million viewers.

Remembering Bill Paxton, Hollywood’s Scene-Stealing Everyman

Bill Paxton was us.

Some actors project an air of unreality, as if they’re tuned in to a different frequency. Some are chameleons, taking pride in looking radically different with each role. Paxton was a versatile actor, but he wasn’t one of those kinds of performers. There was a solidity to him, a dependable core of raffish decency. His characters could be brash, calculating, and even shady, and they were often gleefully irreverent.

But most of the time, they’d end up doing the right thing. Or at least they’d try to do the right thing at some point — usually when the odds were most clearly stacked against them.
