Mo’s Musings – 10/24/13

October 24, 2013 // 0 Comments

I’m not fat, I’m big boned is something I wish I could say about myself.  I mean maybe I have bones that are larger than average, I don’t know, I’ve never actually seen them.  I’ve seen pictures of them. You have to love Chicago weather.  It goes from 75 to 28 in the span of about 4 hours.  Why do we live here?  Oh right, we are all waiting to see the Cubs win the world series. I know, I know let’s get into Mo’s Musings.  You know, let’s ...Click for More

Mo’s Musings – 10/18/13

October 18, 2013 // 2 Comments

Time for another installment of Midwest Mo’s Musings.  I know you’re thinking, why what did I do wrong.  You know what you did. Special shout out to my therapist who’s helping me hate people less.  I hate you.  She’s not very good.   John Capaulo – On WGN Morning News they had this guy on to promote his show at Zanies in Rosement (we don’t get paid for any of this FYI, what’s up with that).  They asked him his thoughts on the government ...Click for More

So What’s Your Excuse

October 17, 2013 // 2 Comments

This photo has been making the rounds on the internet this week and I kind of wanted to get your take on it.  As a guy, she strikes me as the kind of woman that doesn’t have a lot of female friends.  But what do I know, I’m not allowed to get within 100 yards of most of our female fans anymore. I do think that each of these kids is going to have issues down the road though as they will see this picture everywhere.  Hey is that you posing with your half naked mom?  Awesome. ...Click for More

Midwest Mo’s Musings – 10/17/13

October 17, 2013 // 0 Comments

Earlier this week I unveiled a new segment called Midwest Mo’s Ramblings.  I’m really kicking myself for not spending more than 3 minutes thinking of a better title for my incoherent ramblings. So until I come up with yet another better name for this segment, I give you Midwest Mo’s Musings. Breast Cancer – Look I get that it’s terrible.  Hell as a solid B cup I probably should do more self exams (yeah, that’s in your head now, you’re welcome).  ...Click for More

Midwest Mo’s Ramblings – 10/15/13

October 15, 2013 // 0 Comments

This may come as a shock to some of you, but when you sit down to write an article about a show for the 12th time it’s not always easy to come up with new stuff.  Especially when you consider I mostly watch sitcoms. So instead I thought I’d just write about whatever I feel like and slap a title on it so it seems like more then just my stream of consciousness (it’s not). With that, I give you Midwest Mo’s Ramblings: CBS Writers – I might be the only person in ...Click for More

1 Year Anniversary

September 28, 2013 // 0 Comments

Today is the 1 year anniversary of the founding of Midwest TV Guys!  We want to thank all of our friends, family, and fans for helping to make our site the fun place that it has been for the last year.  We know that you have lots of options when it comes to reading bad writing about TV and we are glad that once every few days or so you choose us. We look forward to another year of mediocre TV reporting and lots of discussion of women in bikinis.  Midwest Mo will of course keep everyone up to ...Click for More

TV Shows – Not Just For Networks Anymore

September 17, 2013 // 0 Comments

Whenever you alert us to interesting items we try to respond.  Mostly we will do so on our Facebook page, but occasionally something is interesting enough for us to discuss on the blog.  The Other Midwest Mike sent me a text this morning about an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal. The gist of the article is that creators of TV shows are not limited to major networks and in some cases choose alternative outlets first. This shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone as this has ...Click for More

NFL Threatens TV As We Know It

September 9, 2013 // 3 Comments

As many of you know, the NFL kicked off this week with games on Thursday, Sunday, and tonight.  How has the NFL done so far you may ask?  They’ve freaking dominated in the ratings, nothing was even close. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a guy and I love football.  The Bears won yesterday and the Packers lost so it’s a great day here in Chicago.  Still though, the NFL’s dominance gives me pause. As it is, there are really only 5 days of television programming – ...Click for More

Hot Actress Of The Day

September 9, 2013 // 0 Comments

Every day in around the web we feature a hot actress of the day.  Lest you think we are only a bunch of perverts over here (we are) let’s look behind the curtain as to why we do this. We get comments from our 6-8 followers who tell us the only reason they even come to our site is to see who we have featured that day.  I guess it still shocks me that guys are using the internet to look at hot chicks.  Also, while we love what we do, we are trying to make some money over here and when ...Click for More

Fall TV Preview – New Sitcoms

September 5, 2013 // 0 Comments

When people sit around and talk about their favorite moments from TV it often revolves around the sitcom.  Lines like no soup for you or math is hard keep us coming back week after week. Sitcoms are part of our culture and are the fabric of our society.  I guess what I’m saying is that to not like them means you don’t like America Midwest Mark. As we head into the Fall season, some look good and some look awful.  As I am the all things sitcom guy, I’ll start by reviewing ...Click for More

Fall TV Preview – Continued

September 4, 2013 // 0 Comments

We started out reviewing 2 shows a day but the other writers here had their ADD flare up and posted whatever they felt like.  I’m sure this left our 6 hardcore followers thoroughly confused. In an attempt to bring us back from the brink of insanity, I will finish reviewing Fox Network’s Fall TV lineup. Here’s the complete Fox lineup.  All blue items are links to our previous reviews. Monday – Bones, Sleepy Hollow Tuesday – Dads, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, The Mindy ...Click for More

Two A Days – Continued

August 30, 2013 // 0 Comments

We started our coverage of the upcoming Fall schedule with the Fox Network.  One of our writers had a mental break that day and posted something completely unrelated.  Hopefully his suspension is up soon and you will again see him posting.  Get well soon Midwest Mark. Here’s the complete Fox lineup.  All blue items are links to our previous reviews. Monday – Bones, Sleepy Hollow Tuesday – Dads, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, The Mindy Project Wednesday – The X Factor ...Click for More

Two A Days – (Yes We’re Copying Mike and Mike)

August 27, 2013 // 1 Comment

We are about a month away from the start of the start of the Fall TV season and we haven’t really discussed it much. Being guys we watch a lot of sports.  I was listening to Mike and Mike on ESPN this morning and they do a segment called 2 A Days where they scout 2 NFL football teams. It got me thinking that this would be a good way for us to cover the upcoming Fall schedule.  So without further adieu, I bring you 2 A Days with Mike, Mo & Mark. What better place to start our 2 A ...Click for More

10 Movies I Stop Flipping Channels For

August 25, 2013 // 7 Comments

You might have guessed by now that we watch a lot of TV here at MWTVG.  Part of all this TV watching we do is endless hours flipping channels because nothing good is on.  We’ve all been there.  Every now and then though, when you are flipping channels unable to find something good to watch you come across one of those movies that no matter where in the movie you are, the start or near the end, you stop your channel flipping and settle in.  Here for me are 10 of those movies.  The 10 ...Click for More

Let There Be Lights!

August 8, 2013 // 0 Comments

I know that we never talk about sports around here even though sports are on TV, but I want to break with that tradition tonight.  As a Chicagoan and life-long Cubs fan, I would be remiss if I didn’t mark the 25th anniversary of the first night game at Wrigley Field.  8/8/88. You may remember (or you may not) that the first game was only started on that date.  The game was rained out however so the game was not official.  On the next night, Midwest Mo, myself, and one of our other ...Click for More
