    John Cho got injured half way through making season 1, and then Covid.

    The budget would have been frakked after shutting down for a year.

    He's too busy running for Pennsylvania's open Senate seat to host Jeopardy! :barf:

    Which is insane since he's not even from Pennsylvania. But I digress...

    So The Dr. Oz Show airs in the afternoons on the NBC affiliate here in Lancaster, and over the past month or two they kept running this ad for the show where he's walking around Penn Square (the center of the city) talking about how much he loves the area, and his wife is from Pennsylvania, and (as with most things that come out of his mouth) it got my Spidey-sense tingling. So now I'm wondering, was that just an ad to give some local flavor, and he filmed one for every station that airs him, or did he do that to try and forge a connection with potential voters in hopes that they'll see through the bullshit of him living in a sprawling mansion in New Jersey but being registered to vote at his in-laws' house in Bryn Athyn (in the Philly 'burbs)?

    Probably both. Started off as local color but then realized he could use it as political brownie points.

    Yep, confirmation at https://tvline.com/2021/12/17/head-of-the-class-cancelled-reboot-season-2-hbo-max/. I watched part of the first episode - and it lacked the charm of the original. Plus, to me it was off-putting that the original school was in a run-down building in Manhattan and this one was in a more upscale, high tech school in some generic suburban setting.

    I didn't even realize it had been rebooted.

    I watched one episode.

    They had the child actress who played gay on the one day at a time reboot who was partially grown up, who did not seem to be gay at all in this show, tutor a quiz bowl team of four students who all had simple confidence problems that remedied in 30 seconds.

    Meanwhile the Saved by the Bell reboot is excellent.

    Screech is dead in real life.

    The actor died of cancer earlier this year, and a commemoration was held for the character on the reboot..

    Something called Julie and the Phantoms has been canceled at Netflix, which was apparently a surprise to no one since it had been over a year since the first season was released.

    Good "children's" genre series. My wife is disappointed.

    90s never-was boy band dies in the 90s, blink, and then they're 30 years in the Future as phantoms, helping a pretty teen with her confidence issues, and win the battle of the bands.

    The ghosts can only be seen and heard when they are singing.

    I Know What You Did Last Summer, a TV series at Prime that's based on a movie that completely misses the point of the book it's based on, has been canceled after one season.

    Y: The Last Man is officially dead. No one else wanted to pick it up.

    Oh, right. I forgot they were shopping it around.

    Eh.

    They must have been running out the contracts.

    2 years ago Michael Weatherly offended Eliza Dushku with inappropriateness, he said was jokes. It sounded more like he didn't like her, and was bullying her, rather than he was trying/failing to sleep with her, but it just came off as being petty.

    Eliza got a multi-million dollar pay out.

    Freddy Rodregez left between seasons. I had assumed it was because he wanted to distance himself from a toxic workplace... However...

    "'
    They lost a Producer too over this bad behaviour.

    Two scandals in two years?

    Meanwhile The boy playing Chunk has a minor part in the Sex and the City Sequel, not that he can't do two jobs at the same time, but that may mean that the actors were told to look for other work a while back.
