“Supergirl” stuntwoman and ex-pole vaulter Jessie Graff is about as close to a real-life superhero as we have, so enjoy her athletic brilliance while she shines. Then be sure to appreciate the really cool stuff she does now for the CW, and formerly, for CBS.
Graff crushed “American Ninja Warrior’s” nearly impossible Stage 1 last night, making her the first woman to ever complete the insane obstacle course in the national finals. And she did so with flair, a shiny green skirt and 12 seconds to spare.
"Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" vs. The reality of Friday viewing:
"Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" performed pretty terribly in Nielsen TV ratings for its first year, which explains why the CW banished it to Fridays. The only problem is, that lowly viewed evening is likely to tank demo and overall eyeball numbers even further.
There's only so much the critics can do to keep a darling on the airwaves.
More bad news for the CW. New drama "Frequency" has been slotted for Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. Sound familiar, drama fans? That's because broadcast's top show in the 18-49 demographic, "Empire," owns that spot.
"Empire" skews young, which is exactly the type of viewers courted by the CW. Good luck to you, "Frequency" -- hope you like delayed viewing!
Neither "Conviction" nor "Timeless" feel like they have heads of steam following their trailers being unveiled at their networks' respective upfront presentations.
"Scorpion," however, is a proven commodity. With Fox and CW not scheduling national programming at 10 p.m., it'll be the battle of those dramas -- one that "Scorpion," even in a new time slot, should have no problem winning.
"Son of Zorn" is actually programmed in the right slot -- Sunday nights on Fox between "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy." Unfortunately, it -- like every other show that evening -- must contend with TV's top broadcast, "Sunday Night Football."
At least young males -- "Zorn's" target" -- don't like football. Oh, wait ...
