Video ~ The show CBS will air in Moonlight's time slot


Video promo for the new CBS fall show, The Ex-List. You are kidding me, right? THIS is what they will be airing in Moonlight's spot?!?!

Even the official description sounds lame.......... "Bella Bloom (Elizabeth Reaser), an attractive 30-something successful business owner is surprised to learn from a psychic (Anne Bedian) that she's already dated her future husband AND there's a catch: if she doesn't find him in the next year, she'll remain alone forever ."

What do you think?

A poor imitation of "New Amsterdam" and a lame (lame, lame, lame) sounding plot. If THIS is what Ms Tassler thinks woman want to see, she needs to check her reality.

Sour grapes over the cancellation aside... I will NOT be watching this nonsense.

boring story line. sounds like my life in the 1980's when i was psychic crazed. don't want to go through that again. i need eye candy like alex.

Wow! Another show featuring a skimpily dressed, screwed up chick who obviously missed the boat with a former fling. Oh yeah! That rings like the Liberty Bell with me. PULEEEESE!!!!!!!
Sounds like the brainchild (read that fantasy)of a guy dumped by Beth who is sure she made a mistake by having some self respect. His fantasy is that she is finaly educated that the guy she dumped was actually the one.
Another show to provide eye candy for the guys while encouraging the ladies to kiss the frogs again.
No thanks.

...me again. I know ranting doesn't help and I think the renewal ship has sailed, but I couldn't help myself. This is what I just sent via the feedback form to CBS (and I used the "Other" category as I bet they aren't reading Moonlight feedback anymore).
===========
"Bella Bloom... you are kidding, right? THIS nonsense is what you consider an adequate replacement for Moonlight????

Lord help us, if this is what CBS think woman want. Ms Tassler.... really.... I don't know what to say. Except that I won't be watching this, or CBS, on Fridays after tonight."

That shes going to die of boredum, oh wait no that will be the audience. Why would women want to watch other women more than watching a great romance like Mick and Beth.

Give me a break.

Very shallow silly dripple already on TV - she is Jane Doe from Grey's Anatomy - and not likeable character on that show either. I guess Jay Mohr from Ghost Whisper will also star - he should stay on Ghost Whisper.

Don't they think women like a little action like they gave us in Moonlight??

I saw the clip on U-Tube and I am wondering if they think we idiots or something. This piece of trash demeans women for heavens sake! Is this young woman what CBS feels is a typical person? Pleaseeee!
They didn't like Moonlight's ratings--just wait to the 0 this bomb is going to get! I bet they won't have a group like us fighting to keep it on!!

nonevilhobbit said...

Wow. That looks pathetically unoriginal. And this was better than renewing Moonlight? Really, CBS? REALLY? I hope they realize their mistake when this bombs after just the first episode. As a female in the demographic they're looking for, this is NOT what I want to watch.

like I would ever watch a new CBS show.... dream on CBS!

I refuse to even watch the promo for it ... sorry... well I'm actually I'm not sorry I refuse to watch it any show that takes Moonlight's spot should be given a curse, not that I beleive in curses I'm just mad about the cancelation and I have been since the show was canceled so they should just suck and do poorly. Thatgoes for any other show to takes Moonlights spot and time.I mean it sucks for the fans it feels like we have no say, our voices our never heard, the networks don't care about us and... it just sucks. I mean I've writing everywhere to try and save this show but there is always a feeling in my gut that it will of no use because no one, but the members of the show and the fans, care. It just sucks you know. I've never really had a favourite show until now and now they take it away. I can't believe CW either, not to take Moonlight, I mean they have Gossip Girl who, by the way LOST TO MOONLIGHT for the People's Choice Awards. If the networks had done a better job in publicity... I mean after the strike I had no idea the show was back on until we were already two episodes in so I had to look all over the internet to stream it; I was mad. So it is the networks faultfor HORRIBLE PUBLICITY not the show's and especially not the fan's. If they want to know why the rattings went down it was because their publicity after the strike sucked. I never had a favourite show until now and now I'm loosing it. SO NO, I will NOT watch that show or even give it a chance sorry that's just how I feel. I just want to give a call out to Alex! "You ROCK man and good luck with future shows and films I'll be watching for them. I'm glad you played Mick, they way you potrayed him was the reason I fell in love with the show so much. Good Luck."

I didn't watch I clip. I'm not interested, nor will I watch CBS on Fridays. Never watched GW & Numbers just stayed on the tube cause it came after ML.

I hope the ratings tank big time...of course it will get big ratings if the bitch has big tits and they're exposed and her crotch is hanging out.....that's what the guys want to watch....and if there are guys AT HOME AT 9 pm WATCHING TV, then they're losers and probably need that to "jack it o**",

I wish I could stop ranting but I can't. I'd like to stick my foot up Nina Tasslers "you know what".

I know I sound vulgar but that's exactly how I feel.

AND, AND, her excuse for cancelling ML was so lame it actually made me laugh!!!

Anonymous said...

Oh my word...

You're kidding me, right? Do they really think women are that NAIVELY STUPID? I'm almost insulted that this is what Nina Tassler thinks women want to see. Heaven forbid their female viewers are any parts intelligent or intellectual and want to see something other than some pathetically shallow "romantic comedy" that is neither romantic nor comedic.

Makes me question whether or not Nina Tassler really is a woman. I know she has balls enough to be a man.

CanukMLFan said...

Let me get this right. CBS wants to have more women viwers so they cancel Moonlight, which has a HOT male lead and AN AMAZING FEMALE LEAD AS A ROLE MODEL FOR ALOT OF WOMEN and they put this crap on?

Right, I'd much rather watch some flake of a women search for some guy she already dated then watch Beth kick butt as a strong female lead.

What the hell was CBS thinking? Oh wait, THEY WEREN'T!

It's gonna be fun seeing this piece of fluff tank.

29 seconds of promo..all I could stand. Why do the exects think I, an intellegent woman, would want to watch some slut hunt for a husband who obviously didn't see "wife potential" in her on the first date. Why do they think I want to watch a show that is really for men. I do not want to watch some fake-boobed-Brittney wannabe stumbling around looking for some dick she dated years ago. And she gets a YEAR to find him! We got what, 16 shows? I found my vampire in the opening shots! Good luck CBS, the boys should like this.

kookiegirl said...

Absolutely Pathetic. Come on CBS, are you really kidding us..do you think ML fans are going to be watching this sorry a$$ show...then you're just as pathetic as the show you are replacing for MOONLIGHT. Good riddance and hasta la vista CBS, as of tonite you will NEVER have me or any ML fangs as viewers on your Friday nite line-up ever!! Hope its a big FLOP!!

Anonymous said...

I can't even see that crap! I'm usually a good person with good feelings, but with THAT I can even wish them well!!! I'm not from US, but a really hope CBS gets 0 points of rating in that time slot FOREVER! with that maybe MAYBE i'll feel a little bit good...'cause right now i'm more than angry with that Ms Tassler an whoever made the stupid decision!

Mila said...

Well, I've seen the promo and it sucks. Lame, lame excuse of a show. Do we really want to see a woman chase after ex-bfs and desperate to get married because a physic told her?
Nina T. has no clue.., I mean, how did they pick up that pilot at all? I read that all the CBS execs were high on the new pilots..I think, they were high on something, completely braindead!
I'm going to miss Moonlight and the romance between Mick and Beth..wonderful story, action and mystery *sighs*

Thanks for posting news and info about the show, Kandye :)

OMG! totally retarded! this is absoulutley stupid!!! i saw the promo...the woman is pretty...she's Rebecca on Grey's Anatomy...but the story line is gay and the acting is WAYY below par! BRING BACK MOONLIGHT!!

1. This story could last more than one year, right? I mean if she doesn't find him in a year, then she's out of luck.

2. This is not a "dark drama/thriller" like the three they have blocked together now.

3. This will kill the momentum of Friday night shows. They will lose viewers for Numb3rs for sure.

4. Who wants to watch another sitcom type show anyway.

5. I could keep going on and on.

CBS Friday Nights block of Ghost Whisperer, Moonlight, and Numb3rs is exactly wht the doctor order if you ask me. (Female, 32)

Grace Whisperer said...

What do I think? Pathetic. Sad. I'm not going to blast CBS and the people that made the decisions that took away Moonlight and gave us shows like this instead. It's not worth my energy.

Instead I will say that the show's premise that a girl is so desperate that she will take the word of a psychic and base the next year of her life on it... Well that's just sad and pathetic and unworthy of MY braincells.

Think I'll just be downloading episodes of Moonlight during that hour!

Anonymous said...

Look at the bright side. The bimbo has only a year to find him. That means no season 2.

The premise of the show is a cross between the lecture we get from great aund bitty (find a man, any man, now!) and My Name is Earl (Let's examine all my mistakes.). If I wanted that I would visit with my old aunt bitty on Friday's and pop in a dvd of "Earl." (Right after Ghost Whisperer, of course)

This show will have a dedicated following of the funeral dress and sensible shoes crowd who will harass their granddaughters using the show's "lesson."

UGH BRING BACK ALEX :( I LOVE HIM

La Senora said...

this is Moonlight's replacement?
give me a break
AWFUL!
i hate cbs

Tina said...

That will NEVER last.

But like Nina Tassler said, "comedies are cheap to make". They only care about $$$$$ and Moonlight has special effects and needs stunt people, etc. etc.

Seems to me that they only care about spitting shows out that will cost them the least.

It's all about the all-mighty dollar.

vampsgirl24 said...

Im not watching this...it sucks!! Even with my vow to never watch another CBS show unless they but Moonlight back on aside, this looks horrible!! Do they think were dumb?!?!

Desi said...

OH MY GOD! I live in New Zealand and am in canada for a holiday. But HOW can they take this AMAZING show off the air! esp for this C%$P that they say they are going to put on. My sister her husband and everyone I know here in Canada are REALLY mad!
This is not cool CBS you need to get your act together! Dam it all!

bioqueen said...

Who are they trying to appeal with this show? Women!?!? No self respecting women will care for that stupid plot...and men, maybe to see the scantily clad girl, but not for the plot. AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!! I am so frustrated with this moronic channel. CBS is the worst network channel ever. I watched moonlight because my sister told me it existed. They consistently bring crap to out TV's and when they find a gem like Moonlight or Jericho they let it go. How galactically stupid can they be?

fangfreak said...

i lave the main actress on it mainly because she is on grey's anatamy ant the up coming twilight movie which i love, but nothing could be better than MOONLIGHT. i love that show more than any other show out there!!
