Sorry, fans of 'Lady Dynamite' and 'One Mississippi.' Both shows were cancelled recently--the first on Netflix and the latter on Amazon. They join the likes of also recently cancelled comedies 'Difficult People' on Hulu and 'I Love Dick,' also from Amazon. Though these shows all had critical acclaim and niche fan bases, they clearly weren't getting enough eyeballs to keep their respective studios happy. In the old days of streaming, almost everything would get a second or third season, but now, as the streaming networks all have a massive amount of content, they don't need to hang on to dead weight.

Could there be a 'Roseanne' spinoff? Should there be? Already there are talks of Sara Gilbert and potentially other cast members doing something without 'Roseanne.' But is there a way to do it so Barr wouldn't get money as a producer? We discuss, plus talk about separating the art from the problematic TV artist.
So much time for talk, so little time to watch Late night TV is everywhere--and now at any time you want. Much of it gets watched the next day in clip form. There's no way to watch all the shows--is this a case where less could be more? Not likely, but that won't stop us from making some suggestions!
Are networks failing when it comes to finales? A couple of recent broadcast series finales have gone out with a whimper rather than a bang. And other recently-canceled shows didn't even have the chance to air a true finale. Should networks take more care in providing a fond farewell for once-beloved shows, even if ratings aren't what they used to be?
