Say It Ain’t So! FX’s newest series, Pose, may be in danger of cancellation due to falling ratings. The series premiere begin with 500K viewers and each week it has lost nearly 100K of them per episode. For the first season of a series this is seldom good news.

Pose, set in the eighties, is based on the life of a group of LGBT men and women as they live and love against the backdrop of The Ballroom Scene, the AIDS epidemic, and the rise of Trump-esque big business. The series stars MJ Rodriguez as “Blanca,” a transwoman who is a gay child of Elektra Abundance (Dominique Jackson), the mother of “The House of Abundance.”

Blanca, tired of being belittled and overlooked by Elektra, soon receives news that alters her life. She decides to take the reigns of her future and form a house of her own, “The House of Evangelista,” a safe haven for LGBT youth who have been discarded by their own families and living on the streets of New York City. There, she is the mother of her makeshift family serving as a provider and mentor to Damon (Ryan Jamaal Swain), an aspiring dancer, Ricky (Dyllon Burnside), a hustler and Damien’s boyfriend, Angel (Indya Moore) a street worker who dreams of love and having a family of her own, and Pito (Sebastian Chacon), a fun loving drug dealer. Together they face it all–abandonment, disappointment, the loss of time and self, love, transphobia, and homophobia–all in a bid to have something in this world and truly make something of themselves.

We have to admit we were late to the party when it comes to Pose, coming in on it during its second episode. However, now we are HOOKED! It is easily one of the best series ever created, well written, amazingly acted, and executed. It boasts the largest transgender cast to date in television history, and reveals the Black LGBT ballroom scene, a subculture that has been unknown to most people for over 35 years.

The series’ fourth episode is set to air tonight and we are hoping that there will be an increase in viewers. LGBT people of color often complain that there are no positive or realistic representations of them on television and Pose may very well be the answer to that. If we can watch The Real Housewives franchise, web series, reality television, and other forms of entertainment that do not really speak to the story of the community then surely we can support this series. We encourage each and every one of you to support Pose, as it would be a true tragedy to find it on the cancellation block! Tune into Pose on FX every Sunday

    You can’t be serious. “Easily one of the best series ever created”?! I now can’t ever take anything you say seriously. Don’t get me wrong, I like the show and have been watching since first episode. I’m Team Angel all the way. And I forced my husband to finish watching the first episode when he stopped after the ridiculously absurd opening heist scene. BUT the show is far from good. The acting, especially Elektra, is just awful, unless the director asked her to be a Disney Villain. I’m still watching but won’t be surprised when it is cancelled.

(P) Saturday, March 21 (9 p.m. – 10 p.m. ET/PT) Episode: All Buttoned Up

We have to say we are really rooting for all of these couples. We recently had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Dwayne and Theresa Bowe, and we are convinced Spirit is working some magic over there. This series is definitely off to a fiery start. From the looks of it Sundy and Breyon have a lot to sort through. Sundy’s stance is a bit tough, but we have to admit the infidelity on Breyon’s part seems intolerable. Multiple girlfriends?  Theresa and Spinderella seem to be bonding and relate well to each other. They definitely seem to have it more “together” than some of the other ladies involved in the show.

You all just be sure to check out “Love Goals” this Saturday night only on OWN, at 9/8 PM EST, check your local listing for showtimes.

“Tyler Perry’s Ruthless” is executive produced, written, and directed by Tyler Perry. Michelle Sneed will also serve as Executive Producer of the series for Tyler Perry Studios.

We have to say Tyler Perry is really making moves in 2020 with all of his new series and films being released. He is the epitome of “Never Not Working,” as we like to say on our various social media accounts. “Ruthless” definitely deserves a chance! We definitely want to learn more about this cult Ruth is a part and how, or if, she and her daughter can be liberated from it. Furthermore, how will this affect the story lines of “The Oval” at large?

The Baby-Sitters Club

Ann M. Martin, the beloved series author and producer on the new series, was the first to conceive the idea of these inspiring young girls with different backgrounds, personalities and opinions that were brought together by a business venture they conceived and bonded through the friendships they forged. The adaptation of the contemporary dramedy that continues to champion friendship, female empowerment and entrepreneurship was led by Rachel Shukert (Glow) as showrunner and Lucia Aniello (Broad City) as executive producer and director.

We are really excited about the release of “The Babysitter’s Club!” Growing up it was one of our favorite books to read in grade school. Netflix has been running low on family friendly shows as of late with the surprising cancellation of popular series like Fuller House and One Day At A Time. This reboot, hopefully, will be as heartwarming as the book and the series from 1990; but updated for a new generation!
