Nashville Series Finale
So everything was wrapping up nicely last night. Deacon was able to get to Williamsburg from MSG without any traffic issues and save Maddie just in time from her new producer. He didn't beat the piss out of him, see how far he's come? He let Rayna do annilate the guy online instead. The power of the Internet. Finally Scarlett and Gunnar come together, made out right on stage, right in front of Autumn, who I hated, so that was great. After 4 seasons, Will Lexington finally stuck up for himself and the gay community and actually kissed another dude. Luke is now Facetiming with his kids and will getting back with his ex-wife who supposedly was the love of his life. Layla's alone, thank god, because she was batsh*t crazy. Thankfully, Avery found out about everything and went running to meet Juliette at the airport to tell her how much he loves her and wants to be with her. Allllll we needed was for Juliette to come clean about Jeff's death, which she did, and then she was supposed to get on that plane, fly home to Nashville, come down the plane's stairs and into Avery and Cadence's arms. Noooooooooooooooooo they went with the cliffhanger ending for some stupid reason and now we don't know if Juliette died in a plane crash or landed safely in Nashville. OY VEY that's not what we wanted guys. Even if Netflix or CMT or some network was going to pick up the show we still needed a happy ending. Not cool guys...NOT COOL!
THE OTHER STUFF
-Kelly update...yesterday she had SEAL as her co-host. He was terrrrible. Rumor has it that Rob Lowe wants in on the co-host action. Pretty interesting that it could come down to the 2 Grinder co-stars vying for Kelly's co-host seat. Today and tomorrow...Andy Cohen filling in.
-Interesting info from some consulting firm that stated the following:
US consumers will spend $6.6 billion on video streaming in 2016
This will be a $1.19 billion dollar increase vs 2015 but it's actually lower vs the '14 to '15 increase of $1.21 billion
60% of households subscribe to a streaming service
53 percent of households subscribe to Netflix
25 % subscribe to Amazon Prime
13% subscribe to Hulu
40% subscribe to two or more services (ME)
Shockingly, people still buy DVD's and Blu-Ray's but this will decline by 7% in 2016
Even more shockingly...people still rent disks and that too will decline by 10% in 2016
Downloading to buy will increase by 17% BUT
Downloading to rent will fall by 5%
In total, we will all spend $19 billion on home video in 2016
-Nothing like waiting til the lasssst minute. CMT Awards finally have a pair of hosts for the show next week. This year Erin Andrews and JJ Watt will give it a shot. Interesting pairing. Note to the producers, I totally would have helped out if you needed someone last minute. Hell, put me on the short list for next year!
-This is what I love to see, The Americans has been renewed for 2 final season ending in 2018. Next year will be a 13 ep season and then 10 final eps in 2018. This show is truly one of the best on the air right now. I should write about it more than I do, but I don't watch it live, I'm usually in catch-up mode. I like that the producers know they need to wrap it up and can now work the next 23 episodes out the right way. All shows should consider this at some point. The one thing about this show that's so funny is that while everything about it is top-notch, after all these seasons, the wigs and disguises are still so ridiculous. Worst wigs in TV history.
