The 52 special

WGBS Announces Summer Season

by Noah Vince – Daily Planet Senior Entertainment Columnist

METROPOLIS, MAY 17 — Last week, the series finale of “The Worst Wing” – a fictionalized version of the Luthor Administration – got its biggest ratings ever for a two-hour special where President Rex Boother pardoned himself on his way out of the Oval Office, only to be killed in an accident involving a lobbyist’s limo. 

This week, summer series and specials dominate. Check local listings for date and time. 

SPECIAL:
CRISIS OF INFINITE MIRTH
Comedians claiming to be from different dimensions offer their humorous looks at race, relationships and superheroes in a benefit for Star City. 

SERIES PREMIERE:
LEADER OF THE BAND: SCARE TACTICS
Following last summer’s surprisingly popular reality show about the revived 1970s band Great Frog, this incarnation follows the cult-favorite “monster rock” phenomenon Scare Tactics as they look for a new lead singer. In the debut, singer Susie Kavanaugh has a voice unlike any the band has ever heard… but will being a soul-draining banshee keep her in the running, or make her the first contestant to be eliminated? 

RETURNING SERIES:
I WANT A HOUSE! NO, A BIGGER HOUSE!
Master carpenter Roger Gail and country singer Alison Stevens travel the country, creating homes for people who need them. In the heartbreaking premiere, it’s a family who fled Bludhaven. Does a townhouse in Coast City offer them a second chance, or just a sad reminder of what they’ve lost? 

GOOD KNIGHT AND GOOD LUCK
The sitcom about King Arthur’s trusted squire (Kevin McKinley) working at a Medieval-themed restaurant in 21st-century Metropolis returns for a third season. In the premiere, Sir Tristan decides to reveal his true background to his best friend, “mead wench” Traci (Alyssa Barrett) but will she believe him? Plus, comedian Frankie Sennett makes one of his popular cameos as Tristan’s meddling Uncle Modred. 

MOVIE:
THE NEW FRONTIER
Director Darwyn Cooke’s award-winning 2004 epic about superheroics during the Kennedy era makes its network-television debut. HDTV viewers can enjoy the movie with enhanced “Absolute” features. 

TV MOVIE:
INTERAMERICAN
Fact-based drama follows a suburban advertising executive (Gregg Rice) who quits his job and drives across country in search of the daughter he never knew he had… because her mother was his girlfriend on a parallel Earth.
