The People vs OJ Simpson

April 6, 2016 // 0 Comments

The People vs OJ Simpson finished it’s run on FX last night and even though we all knew what the outcome would be, it was still just as irritating to watch last night as it was 21 years ago. We all know the case and what happened and all the drama that surrounded the case. The fact that they did this show 21 years after the fact and people still watched it shows just how much we were all involved with this case. The show drew it’s highest ratings of the 7 week run last night ...Click for More

Boy Bands vs Zombies

March 19, 2016 // 1 Comment

Just when you thought that all the zombie movie ideas have been done. Along comes a new idea from the makers of Sharknado to remind you that no, there is still plenty of material out there. What happens when zombies invade the old west? Well, you call a boy band to save the day. One boy band? No. That is not going to get the job done. You need two boy bands.  Wait. If two boy bands are good, wouldn’t even more boy bands be even gooder? The answer is yes. Backstreet’s back alright. ...Click for More

The Daily Show With Trevor Noah

January 5, 2016 // 0 Comments

This post is going to sound racist and at its core is probably a scooch racist, but that has never stopped us over here.  What I want to talk about is the direction Comedy Central has decided to go post Jon Stewart. If you watch Fox News and therefore are unfamiliar with The Daily Show, here’s a quick description.  It’s a show that started in 1996 with Craig Kilborn but was made famous by Jon Stewart. About a year ago, Jon Stewart announced he would be leaving the show.  It took ...Click for More

Adam Ruins Everything

October 26, 2015 // 0 Comments

If you’re like me, Adam Ruins Everything is a show you’ve never heard of before.  I happened upon it just last week late, late one night after having watched everything (except Code Black, cause I really don’t get the whole Marcia Gay Harden thing). The host of the show is Adam Conover, a stand-up comedian who has been working a few years at College Humor.  The show is apparently an extension of a series of episodes produced by College Humor with the same name. According to ...Click for More

Married Season 2 Finale

October 4, 2015 // 0 Comments

One of my favorite shows to debut last season was Married on FX. It had a decent first season but the network was still unsure about whether they were going to bring it back for a 2nd season or not. They ended up bringing it back for a 2nd season but left it in it’s late summer starting point where networks put shows they really aren’t all that invested in. FX promoted the other show that premiered last season at the same time as Married, You’re the Worst, to their fall ...Click for More

Sexually Explicit Extras Casting Contract for HBO’s Westworld

September 30, 2015 // 0 Comments

Have you ever seen the 1973 classic Westworld? It’s a fantastic sci-fi movie from Michael Chriton that starred Yul Brenner and a young James Brolin. The movie focused on three different amusement parks where tourists could go to experience three different old worlds. You could go back to Medieval World, which was medieval Europe where you would live like a medieval king. You could go to Roman World, which was a replica of the city of Pompeii. Or you could go to West World, which was the ...Click for More

Happyish Cancelled by Showtime

July 27, 2015 // 0 Comments

Happyish Cancelled It took them a while to make the decision, but Showtime has finally decided to cancel Happyish after just one season. It’s a move that is a bit of a surprise for a network that doesn’t really cancel anything but they decided to end this one after one season. I was a regular watcher of this show but it wasn’t one that really had me hooked. The show was extremely depressing. I feel like it’s been a trend lately for shows out there to try to focus on ...Click for More

July 25, 2015 // 0 Comments

Key & Peele Ending Their Run News today that Key & Peele will be ending their run when the current season wraps on Comedy Central. They are currently in their 5th season of the show that has earned multiple Emmy nominations including one for Keegan-Michael Key for best supporting actor. Key told The Wrap, “This is our final season – and it’s not because of Comedy Central, it’s us. It was just time for us to explore other things, together and apart. I compare it to Gene Wilder ...Click for More

FX Cancels The Comedians

July 23, 2015 // 0 Comments

The Comedians Cancelled I can’t say I’m surprised, but I am just a little bit disappointed. FX announced today that they are cancelling their new comedy, The Comedians, after just one season. The Comedians starred Billy Crystal and Josh Gad as themselves playing on a sketch comedy show on FX network. The ratings for the show were never very good which is why it’s not really a surprise this is cancelled. I am still just a bit disappointed though. I was not a fan of the show in ...Click for More

Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll

July 18, 2015 // 0 Comments

Two of my favorite comedians had new shows premiere this week.  One, Jim Gaffigan, already had his show premiere and I wrote about it. The other, just had his happen on Thursday. I was a day behind it because of my pesky job keeping me busy. Again, I blame you folks for not making me rich with our below average website staffed with bad writers who have no access and no clue. Anyway. The other comedian I love who has a new show out is Dennis Leary. His new show is on FX and it’s called ...Click for More

The Jim Gaffigan Show

July 16, 2015 // 0 Comments

One of my favorite stand up comedians of all time is Jim Gaffigan. I’m not alone in my love for him. He’s hugely popular. Everyone knows his hot pockets bit along with many other classic comedy moments he has put together over the years. He has ventured in to TV before with random appearances here and there and a few regular shows (My Boys which was very good).  He has not yet had his very own TV show where he was the star, until now. His new show, The Jim Gaffigan Show, premiered ...Click for More

Key & Peele Season 5 Premiere

July 9, 2015 // 0 Comments

I’m amazed that we are already at the Key & Peele season 5 premiere. When they first started back in 2012, the ratings were not good. It didn’t seem like this show as going to last. I loved it from the beginning so I can safely say that I was cool long before all of you Johnny-come-latelies decided that Key & Peele were cool.  Now we just started the 5th season on a show that has been ground breaking. Here’s the thing though. Sketch comedy is very, very, very hard to ...Click for More

Talia In The Kitchen

July 9, 2015 // 0 Comments

For the most part we leave Nickelodeon alone to quietly pollute our children’s minds with awful programming and commercials.  I said for the most part.  Last night my kids (13 &11) were watching a show called Talia In The Kitchen and I got sucked in. As I watched, I kept getting madder and madder at the plot of the show.  At one point I was punching my couch I was so mad.  Of course my kids thought the show was funny and dad punching the couch and mumbling angry sentiments was ...Click for More

Ballers on HBO

July 2, 2015 // 0 Comments

I’m catching up on all the new summer TV that has come around in the last couple of weeks. Most of it seems to be on HBO. A new show that HBO hyped quite a bit premiered recently starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson called Ballers. You may remember Ballers from back in the 90s on HBO when it was called Arliss because it’s basically the same show. Well, not totally the same show. I would say that Ballers is Arliss if the guys at Arliss ever met the clowns from Entourage. ...Click for More

The Brink on HBO

June 29, 2015 // 0 Comments

Please forgive me for not having updated you on any of the new TV shows that have premiered as of late. This pesky job of mine keeps me busy. They seem to think that because they pay me, they can tell me what to do all day long. They are old-fashioned that way. So while I’ve got some time today, I wanted to tell you all about a show that premiered recently on HBO that is fantastic. It’s one of my new favorites. The Brink on HBO starring Tim Robbins and Jack Black is well worth your ...Click for More
