Goodfella Suing The Simpsons

October 22, 2014 // 0 Comments

Frank Sivero who played Frankie Carbone in the movie Goodfellas filed a lawsuit yesterday claiming that The Simpsons have stolen his likeness and used it without his permission.  Sivero claims that the character Louie is based on Sivero and his portrayal of Carbone in Goodfellas. Sivero’s lawsuit seeks, get this, $250 million in damages because he says it’s obvious he was the basis for the Louie character. He says that in 1989 he lived in a Sherman Oaks apartment building next door ...Click for More

Mike Rowe’s Somebody’s Gotta Do It

October 22, 2014 // 0 Comments

Fans of Mike Rowe were very upset when his Discovery Channel show, Dirty Jobs, was cancelled back in 2012. I know that the show is rerun so much that you probably wouldn’t even recognize that there hasn’t been a new show in over 2 years, but Mike Rowe fans know it. They have been waiting for him to get another show on TV and their wait is over. He’s back on CNN with Mike Rowe’s Somebody’s Gotta Do It. Somebody’s Gotta Do It premiered on CNN on October 8. ...Click for More

Being that we are big time TV writers here at MWTVG, we have been given access to several shows prior to their premiere dates that we have reviewed for you, our fans. We check these shows out and give you a heads up on what you should watch and what you might want to skip. Sometimes you listen, but most times you don’t (just look at CBS’s ratings). I got to watch another show early and if I can do anything to implore you to stay away from this show, please, listen to me. Fake Off on ...Click for More

The Millers Are Back

As if we needed more proof that there is no god, The Millers are back.  Look there are a lot of bad programs out there right now (Mulaney, 2 Broke Girls, Sullivan & Sons) but this may be the worst. Last night was the season premier of The Millers.  They’ve had roughly 4 months to get ready for this episode.   If you’re unfamiliar with the show, it’s about parents that decide to get divorced and than for some unexplained but we just have to accept it reason move in with ...Click for More

I’m in misery where you can seem as old as your omens And the mother we share will never keep your proud head from falling The way is long but you can make it easy on me And the mother we share will never keep our cold hearts from calling Chvrches I haven’t decided how I feel about that song. I’m not generally a fan of bands with stupid, (ah, I mean “clever”) band names.  Have you ever tried to type a common word incorrectly on purpose? It’s so difficult. ...Click for More

SNL Promotes Leslie Jones to Featured Player

October 20, 2014 // 1 Comment

Saturday Night Live has been having a rough go of it for the last couple of seasons. They have lost a lot of their biggest performers and so far have not been able to replace them with new stars. This season, they set a record for the lowest rated SNL in the near 40 year history of the show and that was even with the return of the incredibly popular Bill Hader as the host. Last season, Lorne Michaels took heat for not having any black female cast members. He quickly caved in and hired one, ...Click for More

The Affair on ShowTime

October 20, 2014 // 0 Comments

I’ve been watching a new show on ShowTime for the last couple of weeks now that I haven’t written about yet called The Affair. We are two episodes in now and I still really can’t form an opinion on this show. The Affair stars Dominic West (The Wire), Maura Tierney (ER), Joshua Jackson (The Mighty Ducks), and Ruth Wilson (Saving Mr. Banks) as two couples who’s lives become intertwined in an affair on Long Island. The story is told in flash-back fashion and it’s told ...Click for More

Resurrection Went To Hawaii

October 20, 2014 // 0 Comments

We have a saying around here when we feel something has reached the top and is starting to decline.  It’s called “Went To Hawaii” after the Brady Bunch episode where they literally went to Hawaii.  It’s amazing how many shows go to Hawaii.  Modern Family did it and then followed it up with trip to Australia. That said, Resurrection went to Hawaii last night.  Quick refresher, dead people return and no one knows why.  We go through the whole first season and learn ...Click for More

Hello darkness, my old friend, I’ve come to talk with you again, Because a vision softly creeping, Left its seeds while I was sleeping, And the vision that was planted in my brain Still remains Within the sound of silence. In restless dreams I walked alone Narrow streets of cobblestone, ‘Neath the halo of a street lamp, I turned my collar to the cold and damp When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light That split the night And touched the sound of silence. And in the ...Click for More

Fox Cuts Mulaney’s Season Order

October 18, 2014 // 0 Comments

The clock is starting to tick on Mulaney. News today that Fox has cut the season order for the series from 16 episodes to 13. While that doesn’t sound like a big deal, the reason the orders stopped at 13 is because they had already produced 13 episodes. NBC executives have decided that they don’t want any more episodes made. They are saying it’s just for right now, but in reality, this is the first step in the process of killing off one of the worst shows of the Fall. The ...Click for More

Old Movies Being Adapted for TV

October 18, 2014 // 0 Comments

Hollywood is not the place you want to go if you are looking for new or fresh ideas. Most of what comes from Hollywood these days, whether movies or TV, is rehashed or redone versions of foreign shows or something from a comic book. That’s it. Those are the only two options. Oh well that and anything from the Kardashian family. For some reason they are still on TV. They just can’t come up with new ideas for TV shows. To prove that even more, here are some old movies that are ...Click for More
