Where there is smoke there is fire, and here is a hint from America's favorite shrink. Break out the Sherry it is time for tossed salad and scrambled eggs.


The Frasier reboot is officially happening. The show will not be moving back to NBC It's original home, and while a quick Google search says Frasier is coming back to TV that's half true. Frasier will skip traditional broadcast and move directly to Paramount + the network's streaming platform. It is expected mid to late 2023.


Networks all have a streaming-first focus. I don’t know what this means for local affiliates but it does appear the networks are future-proofing their business by moving viewers through the innovation diffusion curve.


I don't know if the show will be good but there will be plenty of buzz surrounding it. It's just interesting seeing this program go directly to streaming rather than to the traditional network. I think this falls in line with things like moving Days of Our Lives moving to Peacock and possibly moving an hour out of prime time because I sincerely think that any moved prime time will move to the networks streaming platforms.
