TV Shows Off The Air Can Make Millennials Sad, Happy or Feel Bittersweet
We have most likely all experienced it, Millennials.
One of our favorite television shows goes off of the air for either the season, or for good, and we most likely become sad, and are left to wonder what will happen next season, or in despair with the memories of our favorite TV show.
In other instances, we might also be happy a TV show is off the air for however long it is off because we didn’t like the TV show, or have mixed bittersweet feelings about its status because we liked the TV show, and didn’t like it at the same time, or liked parts of the TV show, or didn’t like parts of the TV show or both.
There are many factors that come into play about why our favorite TV show has gone off the air, either temporarily, or for good, or at least until, depending on if and when, it gets picked up again in syndication or another way.
Actors and actresses may not be happy with not being able to do the TV show how they want to do it, as might be the case with TV shows like The Carmichael Show on NBC, a TV show that was recently canceled after three seasons, and finishes out its current run as we know it after this season.
Actors and actresses may also not be happy about their contract or contract negotiations with the TV Show they are on, or want to further their acting career in another TV show, or even go into movies, or have been asked to play a role in a different TV show and taken the person that inquired with them about it, up on their offer.
The TV network that a TV show is on may also take the TV show off of their primetime schedule because the show did not get good ratings, or the ratings they thought the show would get the first time around, or for a period of time depending how executives at the TV network see it compared to other TV shows on the network. If the TV show is moved from its original time slot, the TV network’s executives may move it to another time slot, on either another day at the same time or another time on the same day.
Uncommon Sense With Charlamagne on MTV2, a TV show that was, at one point, moved from Friday nights at 10 p.m. to a more regular late-night primetime slot of Wednesday nights at 11 p.m., the same night as, and a couple hours after another popular and successful show, called Empire at 9 p.m., is an example of this. Uncommon Sense With Charlamagne has since been made into a live version, called Uncommon Sense Live with more audience engagement, and interaction than when it was just called Uncommon Sense With Charlamagne. Empire is now, and currently on at 8 p.m. on Wednesdays during each of its seasons.
Some shows are also taken off the air never to return before viewers very eyes, but could be lucky enough to be run in syndication, or over and over after no new episodes are filmed, created and made, especially if they are that good, and popular. This is especially true if shows have run for 15 years or more, for example.
Take for instance, classic TV shows like Seinfeld, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Full House and Family Matters. These have either run, or currently run in syndication on cable TV channels like Nickeloden or BET. This is a good lucky break for actors, actresses, producers and other employees associated with TV shows in this state and type-of-status because they still receive money each time it is shown on TV.
