TWENTY GOOD YEARS

Wednesday Night Shuffle

I’m hoping the approximately 23 zillion people who’ve written in to ask me about the fate of The King of Queens, which has been on hiatus all season, will be satisfied by CBS’s announcement earlier today (I would have responded here sooner, but I got kind of distracted watching all the zany activity out of Washington, D.C.). Here’s the deal: The ninth season of the Kevin James comedy will begin on Wednesdays as soon as sweeps is over, with back-to-back episodes on Dec. 6 and 13, plus original episodes the next two Wednesdays. (What Queens will be paired with those weeks, and past the new year, is yet to be determined.)The arrival of Queens coincides with the departure until February of CBS’s unexpected new success, Jericho, which is going to take a breather after its Nov. 29 episode, in the tradition of Lost and Prison Break (which airs its own fall finale Nov. 27) to avoid the inevitable ratings drop from repeats. Jericho will return on Valentine’s Day...  Read Full Article

Goodbye 20GY, We Barely Knew Ye.

Bye Bye to Twenty Good Years. NBC has put it on "hiatus", if you haven't heard yet. I still maintain that it was good but it was also easy to see why it didn't make it either! Thanks to the 5 loyal commenters each week! read more

November 1, 2006: She Attacked My Sausage

It's November 1, and Twenty Good Years is still on the air! Frankly, every week now I'm wondering if this is the last time I'll see the show. I know one of these times, that will come true. But for now, the more viewers it loses, the funnier it gets. This was the most consistently funny episode of the series so far. It's funny how it worked for me; there wasn't much that was really memorable, but I was smiling throughout. It's nice to see Judith Light in something other than a Lifetime movie right now. She plays the stuck-up character quite well, in everything she does. The scene at the bed-and-breakfast where she comes to get Jeffrey was scary — Halloween-night scary! "John, you son of a bitch... I will wash this car with your blood," was a high point of the entire series so far. Good for Jeffrey, to actually grow some marbles. The lady almost took him to the dark side, but John taught us all a lesson: Patience sucks, and attack relentlessly until your subject obeys. A true vi... read more

Ratings: The Nine Is Now No. 3

This Wednesday, as Fox took a knee with rained-out World Series coverage....• Dancing with the Stars' results show set a new season high with 19.85 million total viewers.• Soon-to-be-relocated 30 Rock (6 million) anted up 150,000 more viewers versus last week, while the soon-to-be-MIA Twenty Good Years (5.4 mil) surged 400K.• Per the fast overnights, Lost (16.795 mil) again edged out Criminal Minds (16.589 mil).• One Tree Hill (3.57 mil) bounced back from last week's season low by reclaiming 600,000 heads.• The Nine (8.02 mil) shed another half-mil, thanks in no small part to two million-plus peeps again tuning out at 10:30 pm. Dateline seized the opportunity to claim the hour's No. 2 spot with an audience of 8.68 million.QUESTION for those who watch (or have tried to watch) The Nine: Why do you think so many are tuning out halfway through each episode? The same nine million-plus seem to check in each week, but then... whammo. Mass exodus. Like clockwork. Pl... read more

Has NBC's Good Years Come to an End?

As I noted yesterday, not one of the 3,653 words in NBC's press release about 30 Rock's upcoming move to Thursdays, where it will follow the returning Scrubs, addressed the fate of Twenty Good Years, 30 Rock's current lead-out. Today's Hollywood Reporter recap of the schedule shake-up, however, says there are "no immediate plans" for the return of John Lithgow and Jeffrey Tambor's tepidly received collaboration, though the series "is in production on its 13-episode order, and might come back in mid-season." read more
