In today’s Quick Hits, there are many different discussions to be had, but let’s start with the BoJack Horseman season 4 premiere date!
In a new post on Twitter, the man (horse?) himself confirmed that the latest batch of episodes is going to be premiering starting on Friday, September 8. This means that you will return to Hollywoo (you’ll understand the typo if you’ve seen the show) to see if BoJack can recover from his latest setbacks / journey to somehow find himself in the midst of the tatters of his career. He didn’t get the Oscar love from his passion project, his latest bender cost him the life of someone he held dear, and almost everyone may be ready to give up on him.
Despite all of this, the sow is still a comedy, and one of the best ones that is currently on TV. It’s funny, relevant, and biting in a way few shows are. Also, Will Arnett probably gives the best performance of almost any voice actor we’ve ever heard.
We’ll be back later this summer with a little more coverage leading up to the show’s return.
As for some other news from the day…
Erinn Hayes’ new gig
While it’s still somewhat of a shock to see her not a part of Kevin Can Wait anymore (especially given how critical her character was to the first season), it’s nice to see that it didn’t take all that long for her to find a new project.
Deadline reports that Hayes is set to appear in Amazon’s upcoming six-episode The Dangerous Book for Boys, executive-produced by Bryan Cranston. The series revolves around Patrick (Chris Diamantopoulos of Silicon Valley / Drop Dead Roses), a man who wrote a guide for his children to live their lives to the fullest. Hayes’ will play the role of Patrick’s widow, while Diamantopoulos will also play Terry, the children’s uncle. The show is based on the book of the same name.
How did Candy Crush do in the ratings?
The first numbers are in for the CBS series, and the results are a little bit mixed. While a 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic is good for a game show in the summer, it lost a huge chunk of the Big Brother lead-in. Not only that, but the show just wasn’t very good, even with Big Brother and Survivor players on board. There’s just not something all that interesting about watching people play a blown-up version of something that everyone can do from the comfort of their couch. (We’re starting to get past the tipping point of primetime summer game shows; we only enjoy them when they are ridiculously campy or the have Chris Hardwick as a host.)
