So has anyone noticed the primetime network shows are no longer showing coming attractions for the next week? They're also playing some generic music on the closing credits ( seems to be the same music for all of them). I wonder if this is because production has been shut down for many shows that are now in limbo thanks to the coronavirus? I bet the networks will be scrambling for programming to air.

I have  not noticed that, however they will probably eventually start reruns.  A lot of shows I forget to set my DVR so a lot of shows will be new to me.Smiley Happy

Today on DOOL the ending credits looked very different, usually there are no ending credits, there was today.

i noticed  Monday nite, The Voice - instead of running their credits at the bottom of screen while showing previews, ran the complete credits at the end on a black background. they are only in the battle rounds right now.  I don't see the Voice on tonite either which is strange they are usually Mon & Tues nites. Ellen's game show is on.

I don't think this season they have had The Voice on for two nights.

@Miimosa   The Voice has not been on for two nights in a row this season.

I just noticed last night there were no previews on something I was watching.

 

I think we'll start seeing reruns and/or shows that have been on the back burner that (when previewed) didn't pan out and weren't even shown on TV.

 

At least it will give US the TV viewer a chance to see a variety of shows that we wouldn't otherwise ever see.

 

I had an old boyfriend who used to say this to me when I called him out when he was flirting with other girls....are you ready?

 

He'd say, "Variety is the spice of life".

 

So, maybe we'll get some variety here.

Yes, I have noticed. Whenever there are no previews, it usually means there will not be a new episode the following week. I've noticed this with shows like Blue Bloods, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, etc.

The first two shows of this season were on 02/24 and 02/25, back to back episodes.  But since then it's only been once a week.

 

I'm really enjoying this season; I'm always amazed at the talented singers that take part.
