The story so far is that it’s about ‘an ex-ball player who had anger issues, whose career ended because of an incident…trying to break a bat, you know, didn't go well. He's a guy that just wants to give something back.’ And also stars Brett Butler, Selma Blair and Shawnee Smith…
However Entertainment bible EW has revealed that test audiences who have seen the pilot were ‘both pleased with the new show and eager to see Charlie succeed in a new series’. Their words. Apparently there was a half-hour screening last week in San Fernando Valley in California.
Test audiencing is something they do in the States to gauge whether a show is a hit or whether they have to rethink it. It’s like what we do at elections but we imagine sometimes they give audiences peanuts and a glass of alcohol to make it more interesting.
That certainly makes our TV viewing more exciting – we’ve even been known to sit through Question Time if there’s a snack to get us through the tedium.
Anyway, that’s about all we know. But it’s a relief, isn’t it, ladies and gentlemen?!
