TCA Winter Press Tour 2019 The CW
January 31, 2019
This is the time of the year when all the networks makes their pilgrimage to the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena, California. Yesterday, it was The CW’s turn to give us the lowdown on things to come (all of the CBS-related network went I, believe) and we got some very interesting news.
What To Watch Tonight? With excitement (and not a little trepidation), we will be sitting down to watch RENT on Fox, the latest Live musical broadcast to come to network TV. We love this show so much, we’re hoping Fox doesn’t fuck it up. If musicals aren’t for you, you have Supergirl, True Detective, Outlander, Counterpart, and Crashing . What are you watching?
Not on our list tonight but perhaps of interest, the 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be airing on TBS all night. The SAGs will be hosted by Megan Mullally, and Alan Alda will receive a Life Achievement Award.
1st Choice: RENT. Live. “The Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical is a re-imagining of Puccini’s “La Bohème.” Set in New York City’s gritty East Village, it tells the story of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams during a time of great social and political turmoil.” Fox
2nd Choice: Supergirl. “Kara joins Nia on a trip to Nia’s hometown to visit her family during the town’s annual Harvest Festival. While home, Nia’s mother encourages her daughter to embrace her destiny. Meanwhile, Alex deals with a street drug that is turning people violent and giving them temporary superpowers.” The CW
3rd Choice: Outlander. “Season finale. Jamie, Claire and Young Ian’s attempt to rescue Roger from his Mohawk captors goes awry when a ghost from Claire’s past lays waste to their plan. Meanwhile, Brianna worries Claire, Jamie and Roger might not return.” Starz
1st Choice: RENT. Continues on Fox.
2nd Choice: True Detective. “Hays and West see a possible connection between the local church and the Purcell crimes. As the detectives search for one suspect and round up another for interrogation, Woodard is targeted by a vigilante group.” HBO
3rd Choice: Valley of the Boom. “Episode 5 -Segfault. A close look at “the culture of speculation, innovation and debauchery that led to the rapid inflation and burst of the 1990s tech bubble. The series features interviews with many of the people depicted in the dramatized portions of the production in addition to other Internet personalities such as Mark Cuban and Arianna Huffington.” Nat Geo
1st Choice: RENT. Continues on Fox.
2nd Choice: Crashing. “Pete feels like his time away from New York has taken him out of the scene, so he accepts an offer to perform at a Jewish show, where Elon Gold and Modi question his impulsive behavior with a woman he met earlier that day.” HBO
3rd Choice: Valley of the Boom. Episode 6 -fatal error. “Jim Barksdale continues the antitrust case, and Pixelon’s tech fails.” Nat Geo

Colonel Haley reclaims the site as DEO territory and demands that Supergirl step aside. After Supergirl refuses to be told what to do, Haley refocuses her energy on finding out Supergirl’s true identity and begins to interrogate all DEO agents, including Alex. Meanwhile, Brainiac-5 tries to persuade Nia to embrace her superpowers but she misinterprets his motives.” The CW

But Pete’s return to New York finds him having an awkward reunion and a big audition at the Comedy Cellar that could change everything.” HBO
