I suspect it isn’t real either.

Last paragraph of the article:

Steve Carell’s return to television is eagerly awaited by fans and industry insiders alike. With the collaboration of a stellar creative team, this new HBO project is poised to become a standout series. Carell’s enduring charm and comedic talent, combined with the expertise of Bill Lawrence and Matt Tarses, promise to deliver a show filled with humor, warmth, and memorable moments.

Definitely looks to be AI-generated.

Interesting comparison between networks and to past years of the amount of scripted content on FTA.

In 2024 CBS 64% scripted while ABC is just 21%.

In Fall 2019, 55% of ABC’s schedule was scripted.
Fall 2022, 41%.
This fall? 21%.

5 years ago, 100% of The CW fall schedule was scripted. (12 of 12 hours!) This fall: 33%.

This would have been because of the writers strike no? Just means CBS had more in the can than ABC right?

But they’re talking about next season which wouldn’t be affected by the writer’s strike. There is definitely a move towards less scripted and more reality but maybe the writer’s strike was a trigger for this happening. The networks realised they had success with the reality shows so they just went with less scripted shows for next season.

It feels like they’re catching up with Australia where we have mostly reality shows on FTA and very few local scripted shows screened at all.

It airs on Foxtel One not sure what seasons but i think it’s season nine onwards. Sadly none of the Chicago’s are all in one place.

An important #FathersDay message from me…WEAR A HELMET ! This week I had a bad accident while riding my bike in CT. I'm doing ok and I’m thankful for all the doctors, nurses and staff at @LMHospital who looked after me but most thankful for my helmet that saved my life. Be Safe pic.twitter.com/UMjaoXGpkc

That’s an interesting look. How are the sizes allocated? Are they based on population? Some are bigger than a state and others are just a couple of areas big.
