Today, TLC has announced that they have officially cancelled the show. Here’s the statement from TLC: “TLC has cancelled the series Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and ended all activities around the series, effective immediately.

The End of Honey Boo Boo?

October 23, 2014 // 0 Comments

I think we have finally found rock bottom. We found the one thing that even TLC won’t put up with. It’s not the sexualization of small girls. No. Not that. It’s not the exploitation of children and a family that has issues. Nope. That didn’t do it. Both of those things made TLC buckets of money. What is it that has finally made TLC say that we could finally be at the end of Honey Boo Boo?  It seems that Mama June is dating a registered sex offender. You know ...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 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

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

Benched on USA Pilot Review

October 17, 2014 // 0 Comments

Being the big time TV writers that we are around here, we got access again to another TV pilot before the rest of the unwashed masses. This time I got to watch the pilot for Benched on USA. In a word…wow. It’s fantastic. Benched is a new comedy that will premiere on the USA network on October 28. It stars one of my favorite people, Eliza Coupe. You might remember her as the tough doctor Denise on Scrubs or even better, as Jane on Happy Endings. She is a seriously funny lady who ...Click for More

October 15, 2014 // 0 Comments

The paradigm shift continues. Big news today in the TV world. HBO announced today that in 2015 they will offer an online only service that won’t require the subscriber to have a cable or satellite account.

TV Premieres the week of Oct 5

October 5, 2014 // 0 Comments

Another week another set of new shows and returning shows making their debuts for the fall. It’s kind of a light week this week as the bulk of the fall scheduled has already made their premieres. The shows that are starting in October don’t seem to have the faith of the networks because they are getting pushed later in to the premiere season. Well, for the network shows anyway. Cable does whatever they want. Network shows premiering this week are probably already on life support at ...Click for More

TV Premieres for the week of Sept 28

September 28, 2014 // 0 Comments

Last week was crazy busy. This week is not nearly as busy except for tonight. Let’s get in to the TV premieres for the week of Sept 28 so you know what to plan for this week. Sunday September 28 Once Upon a Time – 7:00 on ABC I’m surprised this show has held on for as long as it has. The ratings have never been great for it but they also haven’t been terrible either. It’s just kind of bounced along in the middle for the last few seasons. I’ve watched a few ...Click for More

Vince Vaughn Confirmed for True Detective

Variety is reporting today that Vince Vaughn has signed on for season 2 of True Detective. I don’t know about you, but I think that is fantastic news. I love Vince Vaughn. Yes I know that he tends to play the same character in everything, but his character is good. He’s also got the creepy side down pat so he can play funny or creepy very well. Vaughn has signed on to play the bad guy in season 2 of True Detective. He will be playing the part of Frank Semyon, a man in danger of ...Click for More
