For all of you who are “Bull” fans out there and were looking forward to seeing a new episode on CBS tonight, we come bearing some rather-distressing news: It’s not happening. Due to President Obama’s final speech / a natural scheduling quirk that tends to happen for CBS at around this time of the year, you’re going to have to wait until we get around to Tuesday, January 17 in order to see the next installment air.
With that being said, we do have a little bit more information about this episode now! The title for it is “Teacher’s Pet,” and the recently-released synopsis courtesy of the network makes it clear that this is going to be one of the more challenging cases he’s worked on, mostly because he will be dealing with someone not altogether interested in lending a helping hand:
“An attorney for one of Bull’s former clients, Liberty Davis (Dena Tyler), asks him to consult on a couple’s civil suit against a teacher who had a sexual relationship with their son. However, his trial strategy suffers a major setback when the teen switches to the teacher’s side.”
This is the sort of case that on paper, looks tricky for so many different reasons. First, “Bull” has to take on the ever-present challenge of trying to find a way to succeed in his job. Then, you’ve got a teenager who goes rogue, and once a teenager has an idea in their mind as to what they’re going to do, it can be next to impossible to consider them to do anything otherwise. This should make for a compelling story, even if there are a few moments here and there along the way where you see our title character pound his head against the nearest wall in frustration.
One other interesting guest-starring note: For those of you who do enjoy “Scream” on MTV, Willa Fitzgerald from that show is going to be appearing in this episode. It’s worth watching out for.
