OT - Catch-All Pop Culture Extravaganza (April 2020)

The 2019-20 TV season has been shaken up by the coronavirus pandemic, which shut down all production, cut short current seasons and delayed new ones. Mandated to remain indoors, a larger-than-usual viewing public is turning to the small screen for entertainment and escapism amid the health crisis.

For those waiting for something new on those screens, here’s our annual list of spring premiere dates for new and returning series. It covers more than 150 broadcast, cable and streaming programs debuting between April 1 and May 31 in all dayparts. It does not include movies or specials.

Shows whose premieres have been delayed amid the COVID-19 crisis are compiled at the bottom of the post along with their original premiere dates, if they had been announced.

Loring Mandel died last week. A long career as a writer, including two Emmys and a Peabody, starting out in soaps and going on to write screenplays for 'Little Drummer Girl', 'The Lives of Benjamin Franklin', and the HBO movie 'Conspiracy', among others. The last, starring Kenneth Branagh, Stanley Tucci, and Colin Firth, is very definitely worth watching if you have a strong stomach at the moment. He was also my great-uncle, and a superb human being.

Co-founder / frontman of Fountains of Wayne (and behind the music of The Oneders) passed due to COVID. I enjoyed FoW a lot in college, not so much now, but their second album is a mini-masterpiece of sugary pop.

Apologies in advance ... I'm just going to spam #### that give me the smiles in these dark times.

Püssy Galore No More - Honor Blackman dies at 94. Natural causes.

EDIT: I would like to formally protest The Nanny’s outrageous sex discrimination against a noted actress, which necessitated the creative spelling.

If using ü would give you a pronunciation of "POUS-ee", then that is a good approximation of how Sean Connery's Bond said the character's name.
