What does it matter? It won’t be on TV.

First thought: they suck! There should be more soap stars. And what the heck are Billy Flynn and Marci Miller doing as presenters? They left their show. Why can’t the producers ever seem to get more real talent to be presenters? The soap stars are who we want to see. Who cares about these so-called TV personalities? And don’t tell me that with only four soaps left on TV that they represent a minority of programming. I can believe that. However, you’ll never get the passion and loyalty out of a talk show fan that you get out of a soap fan, never. I’m so fed up with being told I have to be satisfied with the scraps that the producers of the Emmys force on us each award show. Ugh! Just pissed!

Great post, Rodd! All the way around. So much is “forced on” the soap fan: polarizing characters, ludicrous plots, and, yes, Emmy fiascoes!

Where are Genie Francis and Jon Lindstrom? With such a prominent story line, you’d think they’d be asked to present. And Genie above all. Head scratching!

Exactly, Nancy! Just the same old, same old…

EMPIRE’s Final Season Cut Short Due To COVID-19; Series Finale Now Set For April 21

Will we now ever know just how the lives of Empire’s Lucious  (Terrence Howard) and Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) and their dysfunctional family will resolve now that the series has had to scrap two of their planned episodes in their final season?  The sixth and final season was scheduled to run for a total of 20 episodes.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the production shutdown left them with only 18 episodes tht could be completed.

That means, as first announced during last night’s episode of Empire via voice-over: “Get ready for the shocking final three episodes of ‘Empire,’”  that reveal let viewers of Empire know there was change in plans.”  Now, the shortened season and series finale end on FOX on April 21st.

Reports also note that episode 19 was partially shot and that footage of that unfinished episode will be cut into the finale.

As to what happens with the character of Jamal Lyon played by Jussie Smollett, who everyone knows ran into significant trouble with the law; on last reports executives said he would not be back for the final episodes of the series, although there has still have been mentions of the character throughout season 6.

So, what do you think of how Empire will wrap-up after 6 seasons? Do you feel short-changed, or glad they are trying to work in everything they shot to deliver some kind of series finale for fans of the primetime soap? Comment below.

NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision: “These were extremely difficult decisions to make, but at the end of the day the health and safety of our event attendees and staff must remain our paramount concern,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision. “We are closely monitoring public heath authorities’ guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we plan for the future in this unprecedented context.”

 NATAS chairman Terry O’Reilly said on the change” “Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June.  As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
