"Mad About You" is confirmed to return, fall 2019
But not on NBC. Instead on some channel called Spectrum
Has anyone heard of this network ? Not me.

The only Spectrum I know is the phone/cable company, so perhaps they are going into their own production and distribution channel. Why not? Everybody and their brother now has a network and all we have to do as viewers is subscribe to them all and watch our bills go up.

It is a new station called "Spectrum Originals", premiering sometime in 2019
They also have a cop show called "L.A.'s Finest" with Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union coming. Looks like the same old stuff, not very original material. Just women with guns.

I looked this up and the changes in company names and subsidiaries is crazy, but Spectrum Originals is part of the same group that was Spectrum cable in NY. Spectrum was being forced out of NY over money, so other carriers like Verizon and AT&T and Optimum are trying to take over the market.
This one is actually Charter Spectrum and the parent company of it all seems to be an outfit called Charter Communications, which has a somewhat checkered past. I guess the FCC is supposed to keep track of all this, but I wouldn't bet on it. This message has been edited. Last edited by: Raven,

It is very confusing. One article seemed to suggest that Spectrum Originals was going to launch in May 2019 with "L.A.'s Finest", but maybe it is already available.
That's why I watch so little TV ! Who has the time? Not me.

Yeah, I watch news, "American Pickers," the occasional science show, football, basketball, and late night talk shows. Sometimes, someone comes on "Colbert" or "Seth Myers" and she's talking about Season 3 of a show I've never heard of.

Now they're bringing back "Punky Brewster", the 1984-1988 show, with Soleil Moon Frye returning
This will actually be a continuation of the original show, with her now as an adult, and a little girl of her own.

Reportedly, ABC is bringing back "NYPD Blue" in 2020. In this continuation of the 1993-2005 series, Andy Sipowicz (Dennis Franz) has been murdered, and his adult son is now the cop investigating the crime.
Kim Delaney and Bill Brochtrup supposedly return from the original show.
