15 Most Annoying Celebs

May 1, 2014 // 0 Comments

As a whole we love celebrities.  At last count there were 4,937,343,091 plus or minus websites devoted to celebrity goings on.  Whose wearing it best, how small is her bikini, is Rihanna wearing a shirt, and is she a lesbian are all questions we want answered every day. Still, when you read as many articles as we do over here, it seems that certain celebrities are everywhere despite them not having done anything or have over-extended their welcome.  For example, other than making a few sex ...Click for More

New Show Idea

April 29, 2014 // 0 Comments

Two of my favorite sitcoms right now are are The Goldbergs and Surviving Jack.  One is set in the 80’s and the other is set in the 90’s.  Both shows play off the period while not making it the sole focus of the show. What both shows really do well is use music to backup their story.  I’ve talked about my love of the music on The Goldberg’s before.  Now Surviving Jack, which is set in the 90’s is killing it as well. During a scene where the teenage boys had just ...Click for More

Soul Train on Broadway

Get ready to board the funky train y’all. Soul Train on Broadway is getting ready to leave the station. Producer Matt Weaver (Rock of Ages) has acquired the rights to develop a musical based on the TV dance show created by the smooth and funky genius, the original don himself, Don Cornelius. Midwest TV Guys is based here in Chicago and we love to talk about all things Chicago and Don was just that. Born on the south side in 1936 and a graduate of Chicago’s DuSable High School, Don ...Click for More

I Hate The Ricketts

March 26, 2014 // 0 Comments

Again, going back to our roots and writing about pretty much anything we want, I a saw story today about the Cubs reminding me of why I hate the Ricketts (owners of the Chicago Cubs). The projected salaries of all Major League Baseball teams was just released.  Kind of surprising, the Yankees moved to #2 with the Dodgers trying to become the new evil empire. Where did the team in the 3rd largest market come in?  Top 5, no.  Top 10, no.  Had to be top 20 right?  Nope. The freaking Chicago ...Click for More

The Illegitimates #4

March 19, 2014 // 0 Comments

I’ve been following the comic book series written by SNL’s Taran Killam, The Illegitimates since the beginning. The Illegitimates #4 was released recently and I’ve read this one as well. I’ve been thinking for a day or two since I read this about what I think the problem with The Illegitimates series is and I think I’ve got it. They have tried to do too much with their first foray in to a comic book series. It pains me to say it because I love Taran Killam, but I ...Click for More

TV’s 10 Most Annoying Characters 2014

March 2, 2014 // 0 Comments

I’ve written this list before and it’s time for an update since the last one was done way back in 2012. That list was kind of an all-time list though so I want to focus more on the characters that are on TV right now. Let’s update the list of TV’s 10 most annoying characters 2014 style. Some rules for the list. No reality shows and no cable. Everyone on reality shows are annoying. If we did a list that included those shows, there could be list after list of just women ...Click for More

The Illegitimates #3

February 6, 2014 // 0 Comments

I’ve been reading the comic book series, The Illegitimates from Saturday Night Live’s Taran Killam and The Illegitimates #3 was just released yesterday. I’ve been critical of this series so far because the story has been moving along too slowly for a series that is only set to be 6 issues long. With issue #3, we are finally starting to get some movement. Let me give my regular disclaimer here in case by some long shot, there is an actual comic book aficionado here reading this ...Click for More

The 15 Best Spin Offs in TV History

January 29, 2014 // 8 Comments

Not long ago we did the 15 worst spin offs in TV history and it was a fairly popular post. People do love talking about bad TV. I was surprised that I didn’t hear from more people on the things I forgot to put on the list so either I did a great job or I’m far too intimidating of a force for anyone to think of critiquing my work. Because you all know that I am an incredible narcissist, I of course think both reasons are equally valid. Riding high on my brilliance and success, I ...Click for More

The Illegitimates #2

January 16, 2014 // 0 Comments

The Illegitimates #2 was released yesterday and I couldn’t wait to download it. You might or might not remember that The Illegitimates is brought to us by Saturday Night Live’s Taran Killam. I wrote about The Illegitimates #1 back at the end of December after it was first released and said that I didn’t think there was much to the first installment but was willing to continue on because I have faith in Taran Killam. Now I have read The Illegitimates #2 and the small feeling ...Click for More

Let’s change gears a bit for a few minutes and talk about something other than TV. What you say? That’s crazy? I know. Go with me for a bit. I’ve got something that you might be interested in that isn’t TV. How many of you are comic book fans? I’m sure I just lost at least half of you with that question but for those of you who like to read comics and who like things that are funny, there is a new comic that has come out recently you should check out.

Send Us Your Questions

History is in the process of being made. The first official Midwest TV Guys podcast is being recorded this week! I don’t want to go too far out on a limb, but I suspect that for those of you who are here at the beginning, you will remember where you were when you first heard the news. When we are huge, you are going to be able to tell everyone that you knew us back when and that we are too corporate now and have sold out. I’m looking forward to that day as much as you are.

December 5, 2013 // 0 Comments

Recently I wrote an article about the 30 hottest naked TV actresses which listed actresses that have appeared in at least 10 TV shows as characters other then themselves and have who have also appeared nude at some point in time. Currently, this article has over 20,000 views and the most searched actresses might surprise you.  So I’m going to resort the list based on your clicks.  In addition, those that did not make the top 25 will be eliminated from the list with 5 new actresses being ...Click for More

Columbia Omni Heat Technology

December 2, 2013 // 0 Comments

With not much new to watch on TV last week, I guess it’s again time to discuss commercials.  Midwest Mike just discussed issues he had with a Discover Card commercial because the plot of the commercial really didn’t make sense. Columbia’s Omni Heat Technology commercial also makes no ...Click for More

I know it’s early to be posting Christmas Gift ideas, but for the love of peat, it’s almost December.  During my perusal of various websites today I ran across a new product that I thought I’d have to share with you.  What do you get the man who already owns regular jeans? ...Click for More

Mo’s Musings – 10/29/13

October 29, 2013 // 0 Comments

I’ve discussed this many times, but what’s the deal with every single female being on the phone while driving.  I live in the Chicago suburbs and it’s not safe to be on the road after the kids are in school.  That’s when every suburban mother driving an SUV that looks like it is used by the Army to transport platoons comes out on the streets.  They’ll run you over without missing a beat in discussing what happened on last night’s Grey’s Anatomy with ...Click for More
