The scripted show is going extinct
Warner Bros. and the Discovery channel are cutting scripted shows. This affects shows at TNT and TBS. I don’t know what was a factor in this decision, but I can’t help to think that Netflix’s losses didn’t help.
Is the scripted show dead? Of course not. Even during the worst times of TV there still have been shows. What is missing from the current crop of shows is re-watchability. People love to re-watch Community, Parks and Rec, The Office, or Cheers. Now, think of a show released in the last 10 years that are on your rewatch list? I don’t have any…
If Netflix wants to turn things around, they need to pay for writers to create funny, re-watchable shows. Stop spending $30 million an episode for Stranger Things, few people are going to keep going back to that show once it is finished.
Tropicana is bringing an acquired taste to a cereal bowl near you
Orange juice is a breakfast staple, and who hasn’t thought of using it with cereal? Thinking about it and going through it are two different things, and Tropicana has decided to do the latter. They are introducing a cereal specifically made for Orange Juice.
I’m always up to try something new, but, I don’t know about this one.
I’m hoping this is as good as it looks
