2018 was the year that time stretched long and thick like evil taffy. Maybe the crumbling of American democracy had some kind of cosmic effect on it, but it felt this year felt like three...and a half. Thankfully, the year was crammed with great television, movies and music. From Black Panther (yes it was released this year) to HBO's Succession to the return of Christina Aguilera, the entertainment got us through it.
With that said, Hollywood definitely tried it in too many ways, and here’s hoping they will stay in the endless nightmare-chasm that was 2018. Here are 8 entertainment trends that should stay in 2018...
Despite loving my new day job, the only real reason why I am so excited for Mondays these days is because of CBS's new screwball sitcom, Happy Together. Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West star as a homebody married couple, who take in Cooper James, a dashing Aussie popstar who needs a break from the fast life. Admittedly the premise in ridiculous (and sitcom-gold), but Happy Together is effortlessly funny, surprisingly witty show where the stellar cast (includes Stephanie Weir and Victor James) takes turns stealing scenes from each other.
Yet I wasn't shocked to learn the following: CBS has not ordered any additional episodes of Happy Together, and the series will mostly likely end with just a 13-episode run due to lackluster ratings (about 4 million with a .9 demo), THR.com reports. This unfortunate news only solidifies my theory that some shows, like Fox’s short-live Pitch, are just too good for broadcast television. Shoot your shot, Netflix!
