america’s top tv critic matt roush answers your burning questions

@TVGMMattRoush I found the article “Characters of a Certain Age” [June 24, page 5] to be informative. But if the networks are bringing on shows for and about the 50-and-older crowd, why did Fox cancel The Cool Kids? I can’t think of a show [better] suited for that audience than one set in a retirement community. The Cool Kids was true to life. —Bruce MATT ROUSH: The trend of featuring more mature characters isn’t going away, but circumstances differ for every series. In the case of The Cool Kids, it might have been the right show on the wrong network. Once Fox got the rights to air WWE’s SmackDown Live on Fridays in the fall, the night’s older skewing comedy block—including the successful return of Last Man Standing—became history, and there was…

cbs evening news gets a revamp

IT MAY SEEM like most people get their news from the internet, but 23 million Americans still tune in to the broadcast evening news shows each night. So there are a lot of viewers at stake when one of them hires a new anchor. Third-place CBS Evening News recently did just that, tapping CBS This Morning cohost and 60 Minutes correspondent Norah O’Donnell to help make the broadcast more competitive. Her new gig makes her only the third woman to solo anchor a nightly news show, following CBS’s Katie Couric and ABC’s Diane Sawyer. “I’m honored and humbled by the responsibility,” says the veteran newscaster, who served as a national correspondent and weekend anchor for NBC and MSNBC for a dozen years before moving to CBS in 2011. “It’s this incredibly…

is this the end for the walking dead?

THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE is over…sort of. The Walking Dead comic unexpectedly published its final issue on July 3. Here, some things to consider about how the AMC hit could be affected. HOW ALIKE ARE THE COMIC AND THE DRAMA? The TV series both follows and veers from its source. Popular character Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) never appeared in the comics. But Glenn’s (Steven Yeun) death by Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) happened identically in print and on TV. Also, last season’s villainous Whisperers were “ripped directly out of the pages of the [comic] book,” says showrunner Angela Kang. However, “we have to mix things up, since we don’t have the same array of characters as the book.” HOW DOES THE COMIC END? Spoiler alert! A flash-forward reveals a grown-up Carl Grimes still fighting…

Descendants 3 MOVIE PREMIERE Friday, Aug. 2, 8/7c, Disney Channel THIRD TIME’S THE magical charm for the song- and dance-filled movie franchise built around the good offspring of iconic Disney evildoers. In this installment, the story returns to its roots and “gives the promise of a brighter future and brings hope [to those less fortunate],” says director-choreographer Kenny Ortega. To accomplish that, the main Villain Kids (or VKs)—Mal (Dove Cameron), daughter of Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent; Jay (Booboo Stewart), son of Aladdin’s Jafar; Evie (Sofia Carson), daughter of Snow White’s Wicked Queen; and Carlos (Cameron Boyce, who passed away July 6 due to a seizure), son of 101 Dalmatians’ Cruella de Vil—return to their former home on the Isle of the Lost, a slum where villains and their children are banished sans powers, with a…

the roush review

@TVGMMattRoush Veronica Mars Kristen Bell is the bomb as Neptune’s grown-up private detective SEASON PREMIERE Friday, July 26, Hulu WHERE WOULD CULT TV be without streaming services? Shows as varied and distinctive as Breaking Bad, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Schitt’s Creek found new life, and audiences, after being exposed on binge-friendly platforms. And in one of the year’s happiest comebacks, thanks to Hulu, the delightful Kristen Bell as Veronica Mars (once of UPN and The CW) is back where she belongs, after a 12-year absence and a crowdfunded 2014 movie. It works better as a series. Surf’s up, and teeming with puzzling red herrings in the upscale seaside California town of Neptune, which is rocked by a series of deadly spring break bombings. Sounds like a job for the West Coast’s most wickedly sardonic private eye, a…
