The hits just keep on coming for me. I’m to the point of thinking, what else is going to get taken away from me this year? I’ve already lost so much and now I can add Castle, included with The Wonder Years, Boy Meets World and Saved By the Bell as one of my all-time favorite shows, to the list. Multiple media outlets, including NY Daily News, reported Thursday that ABC is cancelling the show after eight seasons. I’ve seen many shows get cancelled but I think this one hurts the most. I know what you’re thinking: “C’mon, dude, it’s just a television show.” But it was much more than that.
That being said, I will never watch another show on ABC again.

Your school artwork may actually be worth something. That is, if Antiques Roadshow appraisers have anything to say about it. On a recent episode of the show, a man brought in a weird looking clay pot with six interesting-looking faces on it. According to CNet, an appraiser raved about the find and eventually appraised it for $30,000-50,000. But after the episode aired, a woman recognized the work as a piece of art constructed by a friend of hers when the two were in high school in the 1970s, according to CNet. Whoops! I watch Antiques Roadshow now and again and I cannot recall a time when an appraiser made a mistake like this. Goes to show they’re jobs are not easy, I guess.
Season 14 American Idol champ, Nick Fradiani, still has not released his debut album – even after Trent Harmon was crowned winner of the show’s 15th season. The debut project was up for pre-order on PledgeMusic – a first for an Idol champ – and I’m one of many pledgers. Having learned my lesson from previous projects like this, I only gave enough to score a signed album once it’s released. Well, folks, all I’ve received so far is a single off the album which is just okay overall. Meanwhile, I received word that the debut album will not be released until August 5. August. I get that the creative process can be a long one but, what the heck has he been doing all this time? I mean, some artists can churn out an album in no time flat. This bad boy has taken a year and then some. All I can say is, it better be worth it.
