    Stardate 2018.364 (and Beyond): Scheduling and Ratings

    Looks like the show survived "Black Friday". It wasn't on FOX's cancellation list that came out yesterday. Upfronts are soon, so we should have more news this week?

    Pinal County, AZ is also on a break, but they were just featured on 60 Days In. I wonder if they will come back. Sheriff Lamb seems like the kind of guy that enjoys doing these things. My wife met him IRL recently. Says he is super cool and funny.

    All Points Bulletin: All Things Media And News!

    At TV by the Numbers, their "cancel bear" index has the show as a tossup for cancellation or renewal. It along with How to Get Away With Murder and The Kids are Alright receive this rating. All three are owned by ABC and How to Get Away With Murder has a lower rating than The Rookie. Splitting Up Together and Single Parents both receive a likely cancellation rating, neither of which are owned by ABC. I could see ABC letting this show have another season to see how it does. How to Get Away With Murder is getting long in the tooth (heck, I thought it shouldn't have seen a second season. I think the original premise was ridiculous. Also, I didn't like any of the characters on the show, but I digress). If ABC was looking to dump a scripted hour long drama, that's the one I'd pull the trigger on.

    S02.E09: Identity, Part II

    I get a sense that the Kaylons are a mashup of the Borg and the Founders from Star Trek lore. Regarding the episode, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. Wasn't messing with my phone, this had my complete and undivided attention. What a space battle! Last space battle that I can think of that was that epic in scope was the battle over Coruscant from Revenge of the Sith. Makes sense to me now why they've done a lot of understated character episodes this season, they needed to save their $$$ for the CGI work on these two episodes. So now that Kaylon Primary is deactivated, which robot takes their place? Are the Kaylon now leaderless? Will there be some kind of Kaylon civil war? It sounds like Kaylon Primary was their leader for a very long time, so was there a successor? Individual Kaylons have exhibited autonomy, unlike the Borg who were all slaved to the collection, so what do you all think?

    Genre Oopsies

    The Orville https://forums.previously.tv/forum/4307-the-orville/ Comedy Genre I know the show was originally marketed as a comedy, but it is really sci-fi with comedic elements, unlike sitcoms and such where the comedy is the purpose/driving force.

    Aftermath in the Media

    From what I've read, they buy local ad spots in markets where an org is located. I live in the Chicago area, and I thought there was an org in the city, but I didn't see the ad.

    S02.E02: Primal Urges

    IIRC, it was mentioned that those aliens were way more advanced in terms of technology and looked down on species not as advanced as they were, so we may never see transporter tech used by the less advanced species.

    It is still doing better than its lead in, Gotham, which is in its final season and on its last legs. With a stronger lead in show it might be doing better, but I would be more worried if it did worse than its lead in.

    In regards to letting all the Gilliacs go all at once, since this society has done everything in their power to prevent Gilliac births, I just assumed that there wouldn't be very many of them. As it was, the prison camp was minuscule in terms of population compared with the vastness of the city the crew flew over at the beginning. However, because there was such a deep seated cultural revulsion to those born under the sign would mean that not everyone - and probably the vast majority - would simply not accept them back into the general population so easily. I could see a form of Jim Crow type laws targeting Gilliacs being instituted by the Rigelians.
  12. Yeah, that is very fishy. Especially since programming is usually sent up to a satellite by the network and then the cable company pulls it down and delivers it to local customers over their lines, so something happened on the local providers end. I wonder if anyone who has satellite service (DirectTV; Dish Network) suffered similar outages of just A&E that evening?
  13. The rant against Brooke Shields was in the Matt Lauer interview, which led to Tommy’s comments about the history of psychiatry when Lauer started pushing back.
  14. Ron Miscaivige covers this in his book (if you don’t already know, he is Dave’s father). However, he doesn’t blame the tech, his main beef is with Dave and LRH’s policies that led to Dave’s reign.
  15. He was on Oprah's old talk show expressing his deep, deep lurve for Katie Holmes. He came off like a total loon. Shortly thereafter was the Matt Lauer interview debacle where he called Matt glib and claimed to know everything about the history of psychiatry and Matt knew nothing.
