Golden Huckleberry Award Nominees 2013-2014

Okay, it's been a while since I've blogged here. I'm sorry about that. But I should be able to post more information here as soon as possible. I'm still waiting for all the cancellation news to happen so that I know what from last summer is cancelled. I'm still working stuff out regarding that. I might have to do two cancellation lists. But I will work more on this blog in the future. For now, enjoy the nominees for the worst of television. I will update this blog later with the winners of the worst shows later.

Note on scheduling: There is a bit of confusion in my mind when one television season ends and another one begins. This is why my scheduling is mostly off of what the Emmys do. So you might have seen shows that didn’t actually air this season. I mostly blame the cancelled shows. It can take a long time, typically long into the next television season for some shows, summer shows mostly, to be officially cancelled. They still have not cancelled the Cleveland Show, but they also aren’t making new episodes of it either and Cleveland is set to return to Family Guy. But there are many rumors I hear about shows that don’t turn out to be true (whether it was a made up hoax in the first place or they cancelled the plans to do that after the word got out and fans stated their mixed opinions about it that were probably mostly hate) so we might not see him on the show again. Back on topic, I consider May sweeps to be in the end of one television season and the summer season to be the beginning of the next television season. So even though it isn’t the real schedule, it is still the one that I’m going with.

Also, since NCIS: Red was passed on by CBS and given instead to some other new show, I thought that it might be a dumb move by CBS even if it is only in my own opinion. Since there is no way of me knowing which of these new shows replaced what would have been the time slot for NCIS: Red, then I will just have to guess between all the new shows that CBS has aired this season. While I could easily give it to Intelligence which is a pretty bad show, I am pretty sure that another NCIS spin-off would more than likely not be a midseason TV show. So I will give it to two bad comedies of theirs in this temporary award that might not ever reappear again unless another TV network passes on a great planned spin-off of a TV show. But since both NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles are still on the air and going strong, there will probably be another attempt at a spin-off at some other point in time. Why hasn’t Tony DiNozzo gotten his own team yet? With no Ziva to tie him down, you’d think that if they were guaranteed to pick up the spin-off, that it might not be too bad to see him leave the main show. But that’s just my opinion and fans say very opposing things sometimes. There are rumors of another attempt at an NCIS spin-off that you should be seeing at some point on the original show and not the Los Angeles show. Keep in mind that if this newly planned spin-off is successful (or at least airs more than just a backdoor pilot), then CBS would have righted the wrong from last season. And hopefully, this will be a better cast than NCIS: Red would have been. If NCIS: Red had been made, they would have made complicated sounding TV history by becoming the first spin-off’s spin-off to get a spin-off. That would have been a fourth generation spin-off for those of you who put it in other terms. And even if Tony never gets his own team, it doesn’t matter as long as CBS continues making the great shows they do (the ones that aren’t nominated). But CBS might have the change to right that wrong by picking up NCIS: New Orleans to series. While they passed on How I Met Your Dad, at least two of the three they were considering got picked up. And, regarding the award for worst reason to not do a spin-off, you might see that award again. Regardless, I should get to the list at hand that I’m doing.
