Because I have more to rant about this

My buddy veritasema retweeted this and it got me irritated. This is such crap - CBS Passes on Nancy Drew Adaptation For Testing “Too Female” For Lineup

As I groused about on FB - "Too female" The fuck is that shit, CBS? Last I checked it doesn't require a penis to use a remote control.

It's patently ridiculous and regressive to make a blanket assumption that a show with a largely female cast or a strong female lead won't do well in ratings. Gee, it's never worked in the past. Shows like Charlie's Angels, Charmed, Desperate Housewives, Sex and the City, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Orange is the New Black, The Carol Burnett Show, That Girl, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Good Wife, Laverne and Shirley all totally tanked after the first episode, right?

It's also interesting that this is the network that just passed off Supergirl to the CW. Yes, they did keep a few female-driven shows like Two Broke Girls, Madam Secretary, and Mom but for how long? I'm starting to wonder about the trend. It's like they're trying to "bro" up the lineup or something.
