    I haven't forgiven them for stargate Atlantis.

    It has been decided that the current season (eighth) of Mom will be the end for that series. The season finale will now be a series finale.

    CBS is purging. The current season (season seven) of NCIS: New Orleans will be the end of that show, but they are developing an NCIS: Hawaii replacement (and the NCIS series would utilize the production base left over by Hawaii Five 0).

    If there's an upside to this, it is that if ViacomCBS wants to bring Bakula back as Jonathan Archer in some format, his schedule will have freed-up.

    I still haven't forgiven them for FARSCAPE.

    And STARGATE ATLANTIS.

    And SLIDERS.

    yet somehow ncis:la gets the rataings and keep going.

    bleech.

    Guess the Hawaii series will look to make us (or feature/reference) the Pearl Harbor navy base.

    NCIS:NO will probably be missed by the local bands that got to appear.

    CBS will CBS. You can't get rid of NCIS: New Orleans without bringing in NCIS: Hawaii and FBI: People Who Remove the Do Not Remove Mattress Tag. They're thinking of making a third FBI show now.

    Isn't there already a third FBI show with Clarice?

    No, I mean shows literally called FBI. CBS has FBI and its spinoff FBI: Most Wanted. Another crime-solving franchise from Dick Wolf.

    How many FBI shows do they need at one time? The main character in Clarice is an FBI agent too. This is ridiculous.

    It's got something to do with Silence of the Lambs. I've only seen a couple of commercials for it.

    Its a year after Silence of the lambs, and every one is saying "Hey baby! You're a super star!" but she just wants to be a faceless drone and get on with her job. I think its set in the past. Her jerk co-workers, all dudes, gave her a gift basket of assorted lotions, for her first day in a new regional office.

    Wouldn't the lotions be a Buffalo Bill reference? Or close as they can get. From what I understand they can't reference the movie to much. Jason

    It was a hazing.

    I don't know how much they are not allowed to talk about the movie.

    The say "Buffalo Bill" several times, and mention Hannibal via inference.

    So Silence of the Lambs did happen, but they may only be allowed to reference the book, and not he movie.

    I liked the new show.

    But I would like to know when it was set.

    There's probably an IPhone in the first scene and I missed it.

    If it's set in the past it can't crisscross with the tv show Hannibal.

    They only have rights to the characters that debuted in The Silence of the Lambs novel. No Jack Crawford (the same way Hannibal couldn't use Paul Krendler). They can't even say Hannibal Lecter. And then there's a third company which holds the rights to the Hannibal novel (the Hannibal series had to pay to use Mason Verger).
