editor’s letter

We have an empty office at TV GUIDE MAGAZINE. Nerina Rammairone, our editorial director, mentor to every single person on staff and friend for almost 20 years, passed away on October 12 from neuroendocrine carcinoma, a type of cancer. The time from her diagnosis to that early autumn week was brutally short, and her loss is still perplexing to those of us here who described her as the strongest person we know. Even while ill, Nerina called in to see how we were doing and offer personal and professional advice. She was truly irreplaceable, so you won’t see her editorial director title anymore on our masthead. One small solace for us as we say goodbye is that it coincides with an Outlander issue. It was her favorite show! (That’s a very happy…

@TVGMMattRoush When damon Wayans leaves Lethal Weapon, will that be it for the series? —Daniel MATT ROUSH: Let’s change that when to an if. Although Wayans said in an interview that he planned to depart after this season’s initial 13-episode order for health reasons, he has since agreed to shoot two more episodes. Also, there are reports that he is in talks with producers about adjustments to his work schedule that might keep him on board if there is a fourth season. Should he exit, I do think that would be the end of Lethal Weapon as we know it. Things were touch and go for renewal after Clayne Crawford was fired from the role of Riggs and replaced by Seann William Scott as new character Wesley Cole. Losing Murtaugh, the franchise’s…

SUPER FAN As an avid fan of Supernatural, I was excited to see your cover story [October 15] on my favorite horror-action-drama comedy series. What you didn’t mention is that, besides Netflix, TNT airs reruns every weekday. Even though I’ve seen every episode, I never tire of reliving the Winchesters’ adventures. —Linda CONNERS LOVE I can’t believe 67 percent of people won’t watch The Conners without Roseanne [October 15, page 4]! Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf and John Goodman are the show’s heart, not the crass Roseanne. —Debra CRIME HUMOR “Cheers” for Riverdale. As Archie is led out of the courtroom in the premiere, he is sentenced to the “Leopold and Loeb Juvenile Detention Center.” That’s an LOL moment for sure! —Jim FAN ART CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA Email us: letters@tvgm.com By Kristin Patoni @kristinpatoni…

new fall tv’s hits and misses

THE NEW TV season is underway as fresh series jockey for position against fan favorites in yet another high-stakes rumble for ratings. We’re only a few weeks in, but some entries already look like leaders, while others have stalled at the gate. Here’s a breakdown. FRONT-RUNNERS Drama Kings Medical and crime shows rule! Case in point: NBC’s New Amsterdam, with Ryan Eggold as a hospital medical director shaking things up at NYC’s oldest facility, received the first full-season pickup. No surprise, since it’s averaging 7.3 million viewers and nipping at the heels of NCIS: New Orleans for the Tuesday 10/9c crown. At CBS, superproducer Dick Wolf’s latest, FBI, premiered with 10.1 million viewers and earned a full season. And that is now Manifest’s destiny: a full season, given that every episode of NBC’s…

peggy mccay 1927–2018

LIKE SANDS THROUGH the hourglass… Days of Our Lives lost one of its brightest stars on October 7 when longtime cast member Peggy McCay died of natural causes. The actress, 90, played feisty and loving matriarch Caroline Brady on the NBC soap for more than three decades, beginning in February 1983. “She was a friend, an activist and a real scrapper… and how she loved being Caroline!” costar Deidre Hall (Dr. Marlena Evans) wrote on Facebook. McCay last appeared on the show in August 2016. Although best known for Days, McCay had a busy career outside of Salem. In the 1950s and ’60s, she had roles on the daytime dramas Love of Life and General Hospital. She also made guest appearances on primetime series, including Gunsmoke, The Andy Griffith Show, Cagney…

Good Eats: Reloaded Mondays, 9/8c, Cooking Channel ALTON BROWN LONG BEFORE IT was considered cool to geek out over food, there was Alton Brown. In 1999, the unabashedly nerdy host unleashed his intellectual curiosity on the culinary world with Good Eats, a quirky series that brought its now-signature blend of science and humor into the kitchen. Over the course of 13 seasons, Brown—who became a Food Network fixture, appearing on other shows such as Chopped and Iron Chef America—developed a cult following as he systematically conquered countless tough-to-nail dishes and techniques. It should come as no surprise, then, that Brown decided to keep tinkering with his own recipe. A reboot of Good Eats is currently in the works for next year. In the meantime, fans can get a taste with Cooking Channel’s Good…
