2 Broke Girls Season 4 Premiere

October 28, 2014 // 0 Comments

The things I do for you people. I just got done watching the 2 Broke Girls season 4 premiere on my lunch break and I’m so angry that if anyone at my job knew it, they would evacuate the building. I very regularly point out that 2 Broke Girls is an example of what is wrong with TV. Other than reality TV on cable (and they aren’t held to the same standards as a network), 2 Broke Girls is easily one of the worst things on TV. I mean really. How do the people at CBS look themselves in ...Click for More

Jim Carrey on SNL

October 26, 2014 // 0 Comments

Did you watch Jim Carrey on SNL last night? Carry last hosted SNL back in 2011 so it’s been a while since he was on. Overall, I thought the episode was kind of meh. It wasn’t great but I dont’ think it was bad either. Well except for Iggy Azalea. Holy cow. That girl should never, ever, never ever never, perform live again. She was not good. I’ll admit that I like her music and it’s very catchy but she is obviously helped out quite a bit by a studio mixing board. ...Click for More

Elf Christmas Special Coming to NBC

October 26, 2014 // 0 Comments

NBC is looking to make quite a splash this Christmas. They’ve already got the live action musical Peter Pan set to air in the Christmas season this year and now they’ve added another special. NBC has announced that there will be an animated Elf Christmas special which is set to air on December 16. The animated Elf Christmas special will be a stop motion production that looks pretty similar to the classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. The show is called Elf: Buddy’s Musical ...Click for More

Manhattan Love Story Cancelled by ABC

October 25, 2014 // 0 Comments

The race to be first is over. The first show of the fall to be cancelled has been announced. Winning the title of first cancelled is ABC’s Manhattan Love Story. I wrote a review on the pilot for Manhattan Love Story and thought it was an ok show. Sure there were some issues but I thought it might have had a chance. It never had a chance. Ratings were bad from the start and they just kept getting worse. It’s not a surprise that this show has been cancelled, I’m just surprised ...Click for More

Archie Comics Coming to Fox

October 23, 2014 // 0 Comments

I wrote a couple of days ago about how no one in Hollywood ever has any new ideas. I had a post about the number of old movies that were being adapted for TV. Now there is this news and it’s dealing with even older source material than a 1980s movie. Fox will be bringing the Archie comic series to life in a new 1-hour drama currently being developed called Riverdale. Riverdale is the fictional home town of the folks in the Archie comics so like Batman was turned in to a TV show called ...Click for More

Survivor Blood vs Boring

October 23, 2014 // 0 Comments

I am a huge fan of Survivor. I have watched every season from the very start and have never missed. Some seasons are good, some are not. The current season, Survivor: San Juan del Sur is one of the down seasons. It’s another blood vs. water season but to me, it’s Survivor Blood vs Boring. Something just isn’t right with this season. We are now 5 weeks in to the season and things just aren’t really clicking. I think one of the biggest problems with this current season is ...Click for More

Goodfella Suing The Simpsons

October 22, 2014 // 0 Comments

Frank Sivero who played Frankie Carbone in the movie Goodfellas filed a lawsuit yesterday claiming that The Simpsons have stolen his likeness and used it without his permission.  Sivero claims that the character Louie is based on Sivero and his portrayal of Carbone in Goodfellas. Sivero’s lawsuit seeks, get this, $250 million in damages because he says it’s obvious he was the basis for the Louie character. He says that in 1989 he lived in a Sherman Oaks apartment building next door ...Click for More

More news in the incredible paradigm changing world of TV. First we had news that HBO was cutting the cable, then there was news that CBS was following suit and doing the same. Now, there is this news today. FXX has launched a new app called Simpsons World and this is game changing. What is Simpsons World? In short, it’s everything Simpsons delivered to any device that can access the web or this application.

The Millers Are Back

October 21, 2014 // 0 Comments

As if we needed more proof that there is no god, The Millers are back.  Look there are a lot of bad programs out there right now (Mulaney, 2 Broke Girls, Sullivan & Sons) but this may be the worst. Last night was the season premier of The Millers.  They’ve had roughly 4 months to get ready for this episode.   If you’re unfamiliar with the show, it’s about parents that decide to get divorced and than for some unexplained but we just have to accept it reason move in with ...Click for More

SNL Promotes Leslie Jones to Featured Player

October 20, 2014 // 1 Comment

Saturday Night Live has been having a rough go of it for the last couple of seasons. They have lost a lot of their biggest performers and so far have not been able to replace them with new stars. This season, they set a record for the lowest rated SNL in the near 40 year history of the show and that was even with the return of the incredibly popular Bill Hader as the host. Last season, Lorne Michaels took heat for not having any black female cast members. He quickly caved in and hired one, ...Click for More

Resurrection Went To Hawaii

October 20, 2014 // 0 Comments

We have a saying around here when we feel something has reached the top and is starting to decline.  It’s called “Went To Hawaii” after the Brady Bunch episode where they literally went to Hawaii.  It’s amazing how many shows go to Hawaii.  Modern Family did it and then followed it up with trip to Australia. That said, Resurrection went to Hawaii last night.  Quick refresher, dead people return and no one knows why.  We go through the whole first season and learn ...Click for More

Fox Cuts Mulaney’s Season Order

October 18, 2014 // 0 Comments

The clock is starting to tick on Mulaney. News today that Fox has cut the season order for the series from 16 episodes to 13. While that doesn’t sound like a big deal, the reason the orders stopped at 13 is because they had already produced 13 episodes. NBC executives have decided that they don’t want any more episodes made. They are saying it’s just for right now, but in reality, this is the first step in the process of killing off one of the worst shows of the Fall. The ...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

ABC Orders More Scripts for Selfie and Others

October 16, 2014 // 0 Comments

We are getting in to the part of the season where people are starting to make predictions about which new shows will be the first to get cancelled. I had two shows out as front-runners in that race, Mulaney on NBC and Selfie on ABC. It seems that Mulaney just took over the sole lead in that race since ABC just announced that they were ordering 3 more scripts for their shows Selfie, Manhattan Love Story, and Forever. I am pretty shocked at the news that Selfie is getting more of a look from the ...Click for More

The Future of Television

October 16, 2014 // 1 Comment

The news yesterday from HBO that they will be offering online subscriptions to their service rocked the TV world. The first of the major TV studios announcing that they will be taking steps to deliver their product straight to consumers without the need of a cable or satellite provider as a middle man. Now today, CBS has followed suit and announced their own streaming service that will allow people to subscribe directly to CBS to get programming straight from the network. Other networks are not ...Click for More
