I'm sure it's not the opening E. L. James was hoping for, especially considering next weekend's big opener.  "Fifty Shades Freed" still had a decent debut, though, starting at first with $38.8 million.  "Peter Rabbit" debuted at second with $25 million.  "The 15:17 to Paris" premiered at third with $12.6 million.  "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" was down three spots to fourth with $9.8 million ($365.7 million overall).
There you go making my heart beat again
Heart beat again, heart beat again
There you go making me feel like a kid
Won't you do it and do it one time
There you go pulling me right back in
Right back in, right back in
And I know I'm never letting this go
I'm stuck on you
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh

Go celebrate, "Grace and Frankie" fans!  Less than a month after Season 4 premiered on TSSTAB, the streaming service renewed "Grace and Frankie" for a fifth season and this time, Grace and Frankie will make room for a very special guest.

RuPaul has signed on for an arc in Season 5 as Benjamin Le Day, "a formidable and quick-witted adversary who faces off with Grace and Frankie."  Besides presiding over the fabulous "RuPaul's Drag Race", RuPaul has enjoyed a successful TV career guest starring on several series like "Broad City" and "2 Broke Girls".
 This won't be his first venture with ******* either, having starred in "Girlboss" with Britt Robertson.

"Grace and Frankie" stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as two women whose lives are changed forever when their husbands announced they're gay and leave them for each other.  Of course, hilarity ensues.

"Grace and Frankie" is currently streaming on TSSTAB.

After "Midnight, Texas" premiered to modest but not astounding ratings in its first season, many people assumed it would be another one-and-done summer series.  Think again!

NBC announced today that "Midnight, Texas" was renewed for Season 2, taking viewers back to the small town in the Lone Star State that is the home of many supernatural beings.  Based on the book series by "The Southern Vampire Mysteries" author Charlaine Harris, the series is about the mysterious Manfred, played by Fran├žois Arnaud, a medium who tries to find a new home in a town where only outsiders fit in.

Sadly for fans, in an effort to cut the budget, two actors will not be back for the show's second season.  Sarah Ramos and Yul Vazquez, who play Creek and Rev, respectively, will no longer be series regulars, but a news site reports that the hope is to keep them as guest actors rather than writing them off the show altogether.

Also, showrunner Monica Owusu-Breen will depart to focus on other projects and Season 1 consulting producers Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder will be promoted to take over the show.

"I am stoked at the prospect of a second season of 'Midnight, Texas'," Harris said in a statement.  "I can't wait to revisit my favorite town to discover what its inhabitants have been up to the past few months.  Now the viewers, who've been asking me questions daily, will have their reward."

So something that can be good news for a few "on the bubble" shows: The CW will be expanding to Sunday nights this fall.

Long live the king!  To the surprise of absolutely nobody, "Black Panther" took first place in its debut weekend with a whopping $192 million.  "Peter Rabbit" stayed rooted at second with $17.3 million ($48.2 million overall).  ""Fifty Shades of Grey" slid two spots to third with $16.9 million ($76.1 million overall).

I should note that "Black Panther" set new records for the highest weekend debuts in February, for a winter release and for the President's Day weekend, breaking the old records of $132.4 previously held by "Deadpool".

More "Andi Mack" will be coming soon, Disney fans!  The series was picked up for a third season, Disney announced today.

"Andi Mack" is about 13-year-old Andi, played by Peyton Elizabeth Lee, who discovers that her older sister is really her mother, meaning that the woman who raised her is actually her grandmother.  Pretty heavy stuff for a newly-minted teen to come to terms with.

The controversial plot is one that's paid off for the series, however and Disney appears to be invested in continuing with the show.

"A series about a girl discovering that her sister is really her mother was new territory for Disney Channel, but [Terri Minsky's] honest, authentic storytelling allowed our audience to connect deeply to these characters and their journeys of self-discovery," Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide said as part of the renewal announcement today.  "What she has crafted stands as a high-water benchmark for kids and family storytelling around the world."

The cast received the good news on today's "Good Morning America".

A special one-hour episode of "Andi Mack" will premiere on Friday at 8/7c on Disney Channel.  Season 2 will return in June.

If only they would put these shows out on DVD! They have done all these great shows but then will put out only a few episodes long after they are cancelled! There are tons of Wizards, Suite Lifes, Good Luck Charlie, Shake it Up, and other shows I would love to have complete seasons of.
