Downward Dog Sent to the Canceled Dog House at ABC

Talking animals are usually an instant recipe for success, but it turns out that's not the case with ABC's Downward Dog.

Co-Creator Samm Hodges posted a note on Twitter today (June 23rd) that the network has chosen not to move forward with Season 2 of the show, though he did remember to thank them for taking a chance on it in the first place.

While Hodges says he was surprised by the news, it shouldn't be surprising to many TV fans that this show didn't do too well. Downward Dog was picked up in the spring of 2016 and then held an entire year to air as a summer show. That doesn't exactly exude the impression that ABC had a lot of faith in the series to begin with.

Hodges did mention, however, that he and his team were not giving up, and they'd be looking for a new home for Downward Dog. Here's hoping someone takes a chance on this lovable pooch.

Downward Dog airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on ABC.

Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders Casts Heather Graham and Elizabeth Reaser

There's really nothing quite like true crime, is there? The "gripping in-depth dramatization" of the Menendez murders is headed to TV in Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, and the series has just made two additions to its cast: Heather Graham and Elizabeth Reaser.

If you had a pulse in the '90s, you know the whole story behind Lyle and Erik Menendez and how they murdered their parents in cold blood -- a gruesome crime that earned them both life sentences.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Heather Graham will be playing the sexy and emotionally fragile mistress of Dr. Oziel, the psychologist of both Menendez brothers.

Reaser, on the other hand, will be playing Deputy District Attorney Pam Bozanich. As a female Deputy DA, she'll be navigating the sexist waters of a male dominated work environment, which gives us all the Marcia Clark feels.

Here's hoping Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders handles that particular narrative as well as The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Storydid.

Larry Cedar has also joined the cast as Milton Anderson, the mid-western brother of Kitty Anderson.

Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders will air Tuesdays at 10/9c this fall on NBC.

Raven is coming home in the new trailer for the That's So Raven spin-off.

The new series, Raven's Home, follows the life of the psychic Raven (Raven-Symone) and her best friend Chelsea (Annelise van der Pol) now that they're adults and mothers. In this new trailer, first posted by E! Online, Raven introduces the audience to all the new kids of the show, including her twins Booker (Isaac Ryan Brown) and Nia (Navia Robinson) and Chelsea's son Levi (Jason Maybaum).

From the looks of the new trailer, Raven and Chelsea will be back to their usual crazy hijinks and physical gaffes as Raven's unfortunately-timed visions of the future always end up getting her into trouble.

"Sure, I can see the future, but I never saw all this coming," Raven teases in the voiceover. You would have thought all that practice in high school would have helped her see the future a little more clearly, but we are more than happy to return to Raven's crazy adventures.

Check out the trailer and then mark your calendars for Friday, July 21 at 10/9c on Disney Channel, because that's when Raven's Home premieres, right after the world premiere of the latest Disney Channel Original Movie Descendants 2.
