Strictly Come Dancing – The Professionals 2020 UK Tour, originally scheduled for this summer, has been affected by the coronavirus.

But the good news is that it hasn’t been cancelled, and will take place in 2021 instead. Strictly Come Dancing pro Luba Mushtuk spoke about the news on Twitter.

She wrote, “On a positive note, it’s not cancelled and it’s still going to happen ! We just all have to wait a little longer !!!

“Strictly Come Dancing – The Professionals 2020 UK Tour now scheduled for May and June of 2021!!! Looking forward to see you all then !!!”

Alongside this, she shared an official statement from the Strictly Come Dancing tour.

It confirmed, “We have been able to reschedule the tour to May and June 2021 and we look forward to celebrating the return of Strictly Come Dancing – The Professionals with you then.”

New tour dates can be found on the official tour website. The tour will now kick off on Friday 7th May 2021 in Brighton.

It ends on Friday 4th June in Edinburgh, and all dates between then can be checked via the site.

The tour is taking place in cities all over the UK.

The statement goes on to say, “Patrons will be contacted directly via the point of purchase to discuss ticket exchange into the new dates, or the option of receiving a full refund.”

“Please bear with your local venue/ticket agent whilst they work through this process as they are are managing a large volume of bookings at this time.”

Even though it feels like ages away, we’re sure Strictly Come Dancing fans will be pleased to know that the show is still going on a year later.

Ozark 3: Breakups

A superb third season of Ozark now on Netflix, which I’ll try to review without any specific spoilers.  The theme of the ten episodes was breakup – of alliances, families, loyalties – final and temporary.

The basis for Marty and Wendy at odds  was set in the second season.  Wendy clearly has strategic smarts which not only complement Marty’s, but offer alternate pathways.   Navarro, the Mexican head of the drug cartel that Marty is dealing with – laundering its money in Marty’s casino – is impressed with Wendy’s plans and instincts.

Ben, Wendy’s brother, is the best new character introduced in the third season, and, indeed, right up there was Marty and Wendy, their kids, and Ruth.   Ben is charming, lovable, but can be violent.  Marty and Wendy are not happy when Ben shows up at their door, but he easily connects with Jonah, and, for other reasons, Ruth.   Tom Pelphrey’s portrayal of Ben is definitely Emmy worthy.

Back to Jonah, the children – Jonah and Charlotte, and add in Helen’s daughter Erin – were especially important this season.   Jonah is growing up, and we see the first time he’s kissed by a girl, and his going after a perceived enemy with a point-blank shotgun.  Women play a prominent in the interweaving stories, including Helen, FBI agent Maya Miller, Darlene, and the ever-redoubtable Ruth, with a heart of gold not too far from her sleeve.

All of these characters are put to the test, in every episode, and the resolution of their profound conflicts are both surprising and thoroughly believable in retrospect.   In addition to Pelphrey, Julia Garner was just outstanding again as Ruth, and deserves another Emmy.   Laura Linney as Wendy outdid herself in season 3, and deserves not only the nominations she’s received for previous seasons, but winning an award or two herself this season.  And, as always, you couldn’t ask for a better performance than Jason Bateman as Marty.

From the beginning of the first season, enjoyment of Ozark required a big suspension of disbelief.  Season 3 requires more of that.  But the dividends are very much worth it.

Angry Birds, the series…

Last week Netflix announced a 40 x 11 min animated series on Angry Birds.

Set to screen in 2021, Angry Birds: Summer Madness will take its cue from the humour and tone of the Angry Birds movie franchise, from CAKE in partnership with Rovio Entertainment.

Curtis Lelash, Director of Original Animated Series, Netflix said, “Angry Birds have been a true phenomenon for kids around the world and we’re excited to bring them home to the nest at Netflix where they will be angrier and bird-ier than ever.”

Angry Birds: Summer Madness sees much-loved birds Red, Bomb and Chuck, as well as a cast of brand new feathered friends, as tween birds at summer camp under the questionable guidance of their counselor Mighty Eagle. Explosive antics, improbable pranks and crazy summertime adventures see the birds pushing boundaries and breaking all the rules while fending off the brash and obnoxious Pigs on the other side of the lake, who seem hell-bent on causing as much mayhem as possible!

SHOCK KISS on the cards for THIS unexpected Emmerdale pair next week

There’s romance in the Emmerdale air…

Emmerdale

Next week’s Emmerdale reveals a surprising new love interest for Al Chapman when sparks start to fly between him and Priya Sharma.

The unexpected connection between the colleagues comes after Priya sees Al in a new light after he has a run in with his son Ellis.

Priya has been more focused on her family and career recently than having a relationship. But is that all about to change? (Picture: ITV)

As Al opens up about Ellis, Priya starts to soften towards her work mate and the pair grow closer.

But just when it looks like they’re about to share a kiss, they are interrupted and the moment is lost.

However, Al isn’t going to let the opportunity to see where this new romance could go pass him by, and the next day he seizes the chance and pulls Priya in for a kiss.

The following day Priya is back to business and adamant that what happened the day before shouldn’t have happened… but Al disagrees and doesn’t want to let that be the end of things between them.

Quarantine Breathes New Life Into These Bubble Shows

Being a bubble show is not fun. 

The fate of bubble shows typically comes down to the wire, meaning that many of them go without a conclusive ending. 

While the fate of many bubble shows hinges on how networks believe their replacements will perform, that decision usually comes after networks have screened pilots. 

Bubble Collage

With the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, production on pilots has ground to a halt, meaning that networks will need to make decisions based on the idea of the project, the cast, and future storylines. 

It’s a testing time, for sure, but it also means that the chances for some of the more marginal performers have improved. 

Some of the shows have benefited from more people watching TV, and others are merely benefiting from the lack of options at the networks in question. 

The marketing process for a new show can be rigorous, and with the broadcast networks set to unveil their schedules in May to advertisers, it means decisions will need to be made soon. 

Quarantined - Tall - The Resident Season 3 Episode 19

Bringing back a middling show instead of putting all of the resources into a new show the network does not have as much faith in is probably a better option to network executives.

It might also be beneficial to leave some “comforting” choices for viewers, and the well-known, even if not perfectly received, can be very comforting, indeed.

To that end, we’ve rounded up some of the shows that have much better chances at renewal now than they did before the pandemic rocked the industry. 

The Final Showdown (Long) - Stumptown Season 1 Episode 18

Stumptown – ABC

Stumptown Season 1 averaged 2.8 million viewers ad a 0.5 rating — tying with the terminal Emergence as ABC’s lowest-rated freshman series. 

But there was an undeniable buzz for Stumptown. It delivered solid post-airdate ratings and its season finale had its best total viewer tally in two months. 

And if we’re going by TV Fanatic fans, then ther must be an audience out there that the Nielsens are missing! 

It is not a slam dunk for renewal, but it is a worthy contender for a small order to test the waters. 

4lyf

For Life – ABC

This 50 Cent-produced drama is averaging 2.6 million viewers and a 0.6 rating. It doubles the 18-49 tally with a week of DVR factored in. 

The series has been well-received and has remained steady throughout its first season. It should be back if it doesn’t collapse in the second half. 

single parents

Single Parents – ABC

This comedy series shed almost 30 percent in the demo year to year, but it is still narrowly ahead of black-ish and American Housewife.

It should score a third season renewal, unless ABC believes in all of its comedy pilots. 

The cast is stellar and even without ratings, the word of mouth has been decent.

Time will tell on this one. 

Ready For Anything - The Rookie Season 2 Episode 14

The Rookie – ABC

The Rookie moved to Sundays in the fall and came down considerably for it to be considered a bubble show. The first three episodes of The Rookie Season 2 averaged a 0.6 rating. 

The most recent three episodes have averaged a 0.8 rating.

The Rookie Fanatics say that this show is surely worth more of our time, and the cast is super involved on social media. With those factors, it’s got great word of mouth.

It’s possible American Idol is also helping the series, but it is blossoming into a hit and will definitely be back. 

Gary Gets Serious - Tall - A Million Little Things Season 2 Episode 19

A Million Little Things – ABC

This tearjerker of a drama was turning in solid ratings, but it started posting series lows when it moved back to the 10/9c slot. 

However, it has started to inch back up in recent weeks and is now a lock for a third season renewal. 

ABC would be wise to keep it on Thursdays next season because it reguarly comes first or second in the slot. 

And with our fabulous reviews and round tables, ABC should see the enormous potential for this to be long-term!

Bob Hearts Abishola - CBS

Bob Hearts Abishola – CBS

This CBS comedy is averaging 5.9 million viewers and a 0.75 rating in the adults 18-49 demo. Its most recent episode, however, delivered 6.9 million viewers and a 0.94 rating. 

After months of uncertainty, the series is now a lock for a second season. 

Career Advice - All Rise Season 1 Episode 4

All Rise – CBS

All Rise was always at a disadvantage because it was not owned by CBS. Ratings have started rising and it is now higher rated than Evil, Tommy, and SWAT. 

While it is not a certain renewal, there’s a good chance it will get a shorter order for CBS to use as spackle on the schedule in case something new fails. 

Scared Annie - Good Girls Season 3 Episode 6

Good Girls – NBC

Good Girls is down around 20 percent year-to-year, but it recently logged season highs. The series has a lucrative Netflix deal that should keep it on the air. 

Our reviews and round tables on social media are like wildfire, so steady viewership remains, and that’s not something to take lightly.

Whether NBC will opt for another expanded season, we don’t know, but it should be back. 

Bone Collector Poster

Lincoln Rhyme: The Hunt for the Bone Collector – NBC

This series lacked the buzz you would expect from a show of its pedigree, but it ultimately averaged around 3.7 million viewers and a 0.5 rating. 

These are solid numbers for Fridays, and are probably inflated by people being quarantined. NBC will probably renewe it at this rate. 

What to Believe? - Manifest Season 2 Episode 11

Manifest – NBC

Manifest has always been a heavy hitter on the DVR front, but its live ratings were getting worrisome early into Manifest Season 2

However, the numbers have risen to the point that it is now considered a certain renewal as a result of the lockdown. 

After all, Manifest is one of those shows that generates a lot of conversation, and who wants that conversation to focus on cancelation?

Bill On the Hunt - Deputy Season 1 Episode 13

Deputy – FOX

Deputy is not seeing much of a gain in the ratings with the quarantine, but being a steady performer should bode well when it comes to renewal time. 

The cast and showrunner really love making the show, and they’re hopeful to get more time to tell their stories.

And every episode gets better, so hopefully, the network brass sees it’s potential to grow year to year.

If FOX has no pilots to look at, the series goes up to a likely renewal. That’s good news. 

Checking Records - Tall - The Resident Season 3 Episode 18

The Resident – FOX

The series took a big hit in the ratings moving to Tuesdays, but recent episodes have surged to season highs. 

The show remains popular with viewers, but the increased ratings have put the series up to a certain renewal. 

It’s one of the best medical shows around and deserves higher ratings!

Just ask all of you, right? We love The Resident here at TV Fanatic!

A Sip and See Gone Wrong - Prodigal Son Season 1 Episode 17

Prodigal Son – FOX

Serialized dramas tend to lose steam as they progress, and while there has been some slippage, the series has stabilized to the point that it will be back. 

As long as the mysteries and the snappy, darkly humorous dialogue continues, there are plenty of directions for Prodigal Son to grow.

It’s just a matter of when FOX opts to renew it at this stage. 

Okay, TV Fanatics. 

What are your thoughts on these shows looking better for renewal?

Best TV shows on TV tonight

Celebrity Murder Mystery, 9pm, Channel 5

The celebrities

Which one of this lot is a budding Marple or Poirot?

For the second and final trip to the murder-mystery manor (after last night’s opener), the remaining four celebs have just two more days to solve the case. So far, there’s been five murders with seven suspects still on the loose. It’s completely bonkers as the body count keeps on rising and the cast of supporting actors do their best amateur dramatics to drop very obvious clues to keep the celebs on the trail. On the final day, the stars enter the maze on the hunt for hints about who the culprit actually is, only to discover another body holding a mysterious blank piece of paper in one hand… dun dun DUUUUUN! It’s all total nonsense but everyone seems to be having fun. ★★★ JL

All Round to Mrs Brown’s, 9.15pm, BBC1

Billy Ocean with Mrs Brown

When the going gets tough… Mrs Brown calls in Billy Ocean

Popping in for a knees-up with Mrs Brown tonight are comic Lee Mack, singer Billy Ocean and actor Emilia Fox and mum Joanna David. Lee and Mrs B quickly get stuck on each other (quite literally!), Emilia talks waitressing and acting in Silent Witness, and meanwhile, mum Joanna spills the beans on farting and her daughter’s ex-boyfriends. But, best of all, singing legend Billy Ocean gets into the spirit of things before performing two songs for us – something old as well as something new. As ever, the something blue is of course provided by Mrs Brown! In turbulent times there’s no better friend than the mammy and no nicer place than home… ★★★★ ER

Animal Rescue School, 9pm, C4

The RSPCA's Natalie holding a swan

Natalie: “What do you want me to do with this swan?”

In this second episode, the candidates continue their training, testing and evaluation on their way to becoming RSPCA inspectors. As well as some exams crucial to whether they will pass or fail, they get further practical experience, including helping two abandoned cats and a malnourished swan. Another fascinating, eye-opening episode. ★★★ JP

Great American Railroad Journeys, 8pm, BBC2

Michael Portillo

Michael Portillo at Boott Cotton Mills, Lowell, Massachusetts

Portillo travels from Edmonton to Jasper in Canada on the final leg of his trip. As well as admiring Edmonton’s vintage streetcars, he gets out of town and up into the Rockies, where, 300 years ago, tough pioneers arrived in search of beaver fur. ★★★★ SM

My Grandparents’ War, 7pm, C4

Helena Bonham Carter

Helena Bonham Carter investigates her own family history

Helena Bonham Carter is one of the standout stars of the latest series of The Crown, as Princess Margaret. It’s hard to say how much of that series is dramatic licence, but in the first of this series in which famous actors look at their relatives’ World War Two experiences (first shown last year), Helena is after the truth about her grandparents’ war stories. While they didn’t fight in battles, they did, however, save countless lives. ★★★★ JP

Best box set to watch on TV tonight

Line of Duty, Series 1-5, iPlayer

Lennie James, Craig Parkinson, Neil Morrissey

Series one, starring Lennie James, got LoD off to a blazing start

After the Sport Relief spoof, it’s a good time to return to the “real” work of police anti-corruption unit AC-12, led by Superintendent Hastings (Adrian Dunbar). The deep-rooted links to organised crime are apparent from the first series with Lennie James.

Best film to watch on TV tonight

Stronger, 9pm, BBC2

Tatiana Maslany and Jake Gyllenhaal

Standing by her man: Tatiana Maslany and Jake Gyllenhaal

This triumph-over-adversity drama didn’t quite get enough love on its original release in 2017. It tells the true story of Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs in the blast at the 2013 bombing of the Boston Marathon. How he came back from that life-changing event is at the heart of this film, and Jake Gyllenhaal is just the man to play this plucky survivor. The odd syrupy moment is entirely forgiveable. ★★★★ SM

If you watch just one thing on TV tonight… 

Will Lee Mack get Mrs Brown giggling? Or vice versa?
