    Yes, this is where it happens. Alexis, in the form of Nicollette Sheridan, will enter.

    Are you excited? I so hope they name the episode "Enter Alexis"

    So for sure we are getting another 6 episodes or more unless they cut back the number order from 22 and air less this season. It's good they are 6 or so episodes away from the full 22. Hopefully they complete all 22 and not get a cutback. They already got moved to Fridays.

    It's too late for cutting back. If they did we'd hear about it during the Winter TCA's.

    Pedowitz is definitely not cutting the episode order, he gave them the back 9 order because of Nicollette. Desperate Housewives was a monster hit back in the day and when her character died in 2009, the viewers dropped even more. She was very popular at the time, those ladies were everywhere and people are still watching repeats worldwide - even on streaming platforms or DVDs, Blu Ray. That show (along with CSI: Las Vegas) was the most watched serialized television programme worldwide between 2005 and 2008. The popularity sort of faded away during the last two or three seasons but it was still one of the last huge network hits of the new millenium. Pedowitz probably hopes to bring in some Desperate Housewives viewers who are curious to see Nicollette as Alexis. And I bet they get her on various talk shows to promote the show and her character.

    Yes, basically - they want this to work. It even has the CBS brand attached to it and that Netflix deal. They're not going to let it die without a fight.

    It's very rare for a Network head to be this involved in casing, it would have been like whoever was heading ABC at the time, went to joan directly for the part.

    So 16-22 with Alexis. That's 7 episodes.


    I hope they just drop this stupid Fallon's company with Jeff/Cesil/Evil Jeff now/Monica with Michael and just focus more on Alexis with Fallon and Blake and the family. They really don't need the Colby's anymore. After what I saw in the cliffhanger episode, garbage writing.

    Well Mark Pedowitz and Nicollette have history over her sudden axing from "Desperate Housewives". It shows confidence in Nicollette to bring extra eyes to Dynasty 2.0. I hope for those enjoying the series it works but a lot depends on the writing.

    It's such a shame that NS was hired because she's so wrong for the part.

    If the CW is really intent on making this work, they would use the introduction of NS as Alexis as the basis of a new ad campaign, something to remind the general public that the show is still on :rolleyes:, and that now would be a really good time to get involved (or in some cases, get involved again) in the show. An uptick in ratings of any consequence would give them an excuse to renew, a way of saying "Okay, maybe this will take off in season 2". They need to publicize this introduction in order for it to draw in new viewers, because as it stands, the only ones who would see it are the same group already watching the show (which isn't huge). Word of mouth hasn't helped in a measurable way.
