2015 has just begun and NBC’s promotion is flying to high gear for the 2nd season of Freddy’s show “The Night Shift”. In just 2 weeks from now, on Monday February 23rd, we can finally view the season opener.
The show is getting wonderful support from NBC including more episodes ordered and earlier air dates, just some of the fantastic signs of its success.
The Night Shift Season 2
Promo pic #1 – strangely this pic shows Freddy in purple scrubs! Purple. Scrubs. Why would Ragosa be wearing those? Any ideas? Is this a clue to some intriguing plot development? We’ll have to watch to find out.
The Night Shift – Recovery
Promo pic #2 – In this pic Freddy appears to be performing the typical Ragosa character – a stern and by-the-books administrator. Also – not that it needs saying – doing it nattily dressed with hair to die for.
Night Shift Season 2 – behind the scenes
However in this behind the scenes pic, tweeted by Eoin Macken, we spy a very different aspect of Freddy’s character. Why would Ragosa be dressed as a janitor in this scene? Garbed in apron, rubber gloves, t-shirt, and boots this goofing-around Freddy looks completely opposite of the suit & tie guy we’re used to seeing.
I am hopeful that the contrasting and puzzling hints shown in these pics will play out as interesting and imaginative story lines for our favorite actor.
Freddy’s new show The Night Shift premiered last night, Tuesday, May 27 on NBC. The show won its time slot which is great news! Lets hope these ratings continue so we’ll get to see Freddy on our TV screens for many seasons to come. If you missed the show, here is the link to watch: THE NIGHT SHIFT PILOT EPISODE

This has been a slow week. Only 5 tweets. Let’s hope its because Freddy is busy prepping for all of his upcoming projects!
There has been so much Freddy news lately! This is kind of insanely amazing after the long stretches of nothing we’ve had in the past years. So lets get to it.
First off, Instagram postings of his dog. We’ll have to keep an eye on Instagram now since it doesn’t post to his twitter account anymore when he puts up a picture.
This dog cracks me up. He sure does enjoy staring!
And now on to Twitter.

Miscellaneous other tweets
We just found out about The Night Shift being picked up and NBC has already put up a page for the show and some promo pictures.
Gotta love Freddy’s character Michael Ragosa standing grumpily on the side. Looks like he will be the hospital villain!
The Night Shift NBC Page
Here’s a blurb about the show from the NBC page:
At San Antonio Memorial, those who work the 7pm – 7am shift are a special breed. Welcome to the night shift, where every day is a fight between the heroic efforts of saving lives and the hard truths of running a hospital. After a grueling tour of duty in Afghanistan, adrenaline junkie TC Callahan became accustomed to combat, but he could have never guessed that his toughest battles would be fought right here at home. TC and his irreverent team of late night docs know how to let off steam with the casual prank or two, but when lives are at stake, they are all business.
Unfortunately, the night shift is now under new management, and boss Michael Ragosa is more interested in cutting costs than helping people. But TC has never met a rule he couldn’t break, or a person he won’t stand up to. And it’s clear that not even Jordan, TC’s ex-girlfriend and now Ragosa’s second in charge, has a chance at keeping him in line. If Ragosa wants a war… he’ll get one.
From executive producers/writers Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah (“Diary of a Wimpy Kid”) comes a fresh new take on the fight to save lives. One-hour drama.
