Fox Cancels The Mindy Project

May 7, 2015 // 0 Comments

Mindy Project Cancelled There is going to be a lot of news about shows in the next few days as networks make decisions on which shows will be getting picked up and which ones will be getting the ax. Fox came out today and announced one of the first cancellations with news that they are cancelling The Mindy Project. While it’s not a total surprise that they are cancelling this show, the ratings have been consistently terrible, I am still mildly surprised.  Few shows have been able to ...Click for More

The Comedians Premiere on FX

April 11, 2015 // 0 Comments

I’m on record as being suspect of new shows starting at random times (HBO notwithstanding because they can do whatever they want) of the year. If they were good and the network really supported them, they would have been in their fall line-ups where all the heavy hitters come to play. The longer after the fall a show premieres, the more I assume that the network doesn’t have faith in the show and is just taking a shot with it.  Which brings us to The Comedians premiere on FX this ...Click for More

True Detective Season 2 Teaser

April 9, 2015 // 0 Comments

HBO has released the first True Detective season 2 teaser and even though it’s only a minute long, it looks fantastic. True Detective season 2 Teaser Season 2 of True Detective stars Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, and Taylor Kitsch.  Before you go running around saying that this is going to be a disaster based on who is starring, remember season 1. Remember that it wasn’t all that long ago that Matthew Mcconaughey was a laughing stock.  He’s now an Academy ...Click for More

Lip Sync Battle on Spike

April 8, 2015 // 0 Comments

Jimmy Fallon has had a popular segment of his show over the last few years where he and another celebrity would have a lip sync battle facing off over popular songs. The segment is one of Fallon’s most popular segments which means it was no surprise that they decided to take this gem of a concept and spin it off in to it’s own show. What is a surprise is that NBC passed on it. What in the heck were they thinking? Well I know what they were thinking. They are NBC. They actually ...Click for More

Neighbors With Benefits Cancelled by A&E

April 6, 2015 // 0 Comments

Neighbors with Benefits Cancelled Well I can’t say that I’m surprised, but Neighbors with Benefits has been cancelled by A&E after airing just two episodes. There had been nine hour long episodes of the reality series filmed and ready to air but the show only made it through two episodes. We covered both episodes here and we killed one of them and were somewhat positive about the other. Overall, I didn’t think the show was awful but I can see why people were not watching. ...Click for More

Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber

March 31, 2015 // 0 Comments

Well it finally happened last night. The Comedy Central roast of Justin Bieber that has been talked about non-stop ever since the idea was first announced several months ago is over. Let me start by saying that I am a fan of these roasts. I know it’s not really a roast like they were back in the day. Back in the day a roast, like Dean Martin’s, would be for someone who had been around a long time who was then roasted by their actual friends. Today’s roasts are not really a ...Click for More

Neighbors With Benefits Episode 2

March 30, 2015 // 0 Comments

Neighbors With Benefits Episode 2 I was pretty hard on the premiere episode of Neighbors With Benefits (no pun intended).  My criticism was certainly not without merit but maybe it was a bit too harsh. I decided to watch another episode of Neighbors last night and this episode was better. It’s still not great, but it was better. Neighbors with Benefits episode 2 focused on some problems that people who live in the swinging lifestyle can face. I don’t like the scripted and forced ...Click for More

Going Clear on HBO

March 29, 2015 // 0 Comments

You may or may not have heard about the documentary that aired on HBO tonight. For weeks leading up to the premiere of Going Clear people have been talking about this documentary as if it will be some kind of earth shattering revelation on the Church of Scientology. We were told that HBO had 160 lawyers working on this show to make sure they could deal with any legal claims that the church might bring against HBO because the church is famous for litigating against critics. So did the show live ...Click for More

Billy & Billie aka Acceptable Incest

March 26, 2015 // 0 Comments

OK, maybe I went a little overboard with the headline of the article as what’s going on in this show isn’t technically incest.  The show Billy & Billie is really just about two people falling in love who, oh by the way, happen to be stepsiblings. I’m pretty sure I’m the only one watching this show as when I talk about it with friends, family, or randos on the street none of them have heard of it.  Part of the “problem” if you will is that it airs on the ...Click for More

Neighbors with Benefits

March 23, 2015 // 0 Comments

How many  more reality TV shows can there be? Are we nearly out of ideas? You would think we would be. If you thought that, you would be wrong. A&E premiered a new reality show last night called Neighbors with Benefits and you might be able to guess from the title what it is about. What is it about? Swingers. Yes. A&E, that is Arts and Entertainment, is doing a show about a neighborhood full of swingers. It premiered last night and because I am out there for you the reader, I watched ...Click for More

Better Call Saul is One of TV’s Best Shows

March 17, 2015 // 0 Comments

Better Call Saul is one of TV’s Best Shows When I wrote my original review for the Better Call Saul premiere, I was quite unimpressed with the show. I thought it was ok but nothing special. The hype surrounding the show was sure to make it difficult to live up to and at first, I didn’t really think they were getting the job done. I kept watching though. Each week they did something that many other new shows from the 2014-2015 TV season have not been able to do. They got better. Not ...Click for More

The Royals Premiere

March 17, 2015 // 0 Comments

The Royals Premiere The only reason I ever have to turn on the E! network is to watch The Soup. I’ve been a fan of that show since way back in the Greg Kinnear days. There might be another reason now for me to tune in to E!. The Royals premiere was a couple of days ago and it’s a show that might be worth watching. If you haven’t heard of The Royals, it’s a new show on E! starring Elizabeth Hurley and about 1,000 other people. The show is about, as you might have guessed, ...Click for More

Game of Thrones Season 5 Trailer

March 11, 2015 // 0 Comments

HBO has released a new trailer for the upcoming Game of Thrones season 5 and it looks…amazing. Game of Thrones Season 5 Trailer We have been told by Game of Thrones producers that the TV show will be breaking from the books more and more. This is due in part because George R.R. Martin can only write 1 book a decade it seems and production of the TV show is outpacing production of the source material. This is good news though for all of us who are fans of the show. No longer will we have ...Click for More

The Jack and Triumph Show

March 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

I’m hesitant to write about this show because I know after watching it that the number of people who will think The Jack and Triumph Show is funny is a very tiny group of people that includes me and maybe four or five other people not related to Robert Smigel. The Jack and Triumph show stars Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog (voiced by Smigel). McBrayer plays his Kenneth character that he started at the Improv Olympic and on The Conan O’Brien Show and then ...Click for More

Sex Box Premiere

March 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

I watch a lot of TV. That’s part of the reason why I write on a TV website. Because I watch a lot of TV. Sometimes that TV is good, sometimes it’s not good, and sometimes it’s a show like Sex Box. I don’t even really have a category to put Sex Box in because it is so appallingly bad that to call it bad would be offensive to The Odd Couple. At least at The Odd Couple, they are trying. Sex Box doesn’t deserve even that much leeway. Sex Box is a new show on WE tv. WE ...Click for More
