Launch Pad (June 22, 2019)

Last week

I posted a few more recaps for La Reina del Sur and now I can panic because they’ve given us a date for the Gran Final, July 29, and I’ve gotta catch up!

This week on TV

Fútbol, fútbol, fútbol! It’s everywhere! It’s in everything!

And this week we also get Democratic candidate debates (Wednesday and Thursday night on Telemundo).

The calendar has the approximate dates when stuff might be getting interrupted, but you’ll want to check your local schedule for the details.

Next week, more fútbol (all the tourneys end July 7) and the July 4 holiday.

Kat is 5ftLatina. She is really 5' tall (and probably shrinking) and Latina. She is not actually a cactus, but she is both prickly and cute. Mr. 5ft is actually married to Kat, but is not 5' tall or Latina. He is also not a form of plant life.

Kat, thanks so much for the scoop on LRDS2! I’m glad they’re keeping it to about the same length as Season 1. Any word on when Betty will end?

I read on Twitter that they’ve finished filming. Someone did an episode count with air dates and they had it ending late July….but that was assuming no preemptions and we’ve had several since that tweet. I think it was like 120ish episodes? I’ll never find the tweet again and I might be remembering wrong.

Late July sounds right, because I remember early on that Telemundo showed the first Betty episode 2 months after filming began. Then, recently, when I read that the last episode had just been shot, I assumed that the finale would also be aired two months later–which happens to be the end of July. That, of course, doesn’t take any pre-emptions into account! 🙁

Yikes! Did y’all notice that next week neither Betty nor LRDS2 will be on? After this Friday, they won’t be back until July 8.
