Quantum Leap Is Back

October 4, 2016 // 0 Comments

Ok, ok, ok, so maybe I lied to get your attention with the whole Quantum Leap is back thing.  However, a new show that reminded me of Quantum Leap premiered last night and like Katy Perry kissing girls, I kinda liked it. Yes, I know I’m like 50 words into this post and I haven’t yet mentioned the name of the show.  Honestly I thought about writing this entire post being coy and wittily avoiding mentioning the name of the show.  The problem is that I’m just not that witty. ...Click for More

Survivor Millennials vs Gen X Premiere

September 23, 2016 // 0 Comments

Survivor Millennials vs Gen X Premiere Survivor season 33, yes 33, premiered this week. As with nearly every other season of Survivor now, there are teams set up to pit one specific group of people vs another. This season the two teams are based on generations. Millennials vs Gen X. They have done divisions before like brains vs beauty vs brawn and old vs young and men vs women and all of that. This is their first shot at a specific generational game.  The obvious reason they are doing this is ...Click for More

Speechless Premiere on ABC

September 22, 2016 // 0 Comments

Hey there. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to write any hard-hitting TV commentary and I know that you all have missed it dearly. I’m surprised that I haven’t received more email with meltdowns about missing my incredible prose and insightful commentary about what is right and wrong about TV today. In all honesty, it’s pretty much like most of you didn’t even notice at all and didn’t really care.  I know that can’t possibly be the case ...Click for More

Son of Zorn Premier

September 12, 2016 // 0 Comments

I was watching the Bears game yesterday with a neighborhood proximity associate of mine and he kind of called us out on our lack of original content recently.  I explained to him how big time the MWTVG writers are at their day jobs and he wasn’t impressed.  He said anyone could learn to make coffee get off your high horse Midwest Mo and write something new.  Fine. The Son of Zorn premier was last night on Fox after the football games and although all the commercials made me think this ...Click for More

Lucifer Renewed for Season 2

April 8, 2016 // 0 Comments

Lucifer Renewed for Season 2 by Fox I haven’t written about this show yet and I feel badly for not informing you all about a great new show on Fox. I’m thankful that Fox has decided to renew Lucifer for a 2nd season despite my not ever having written about the show. Somehow the word got out for enough people to watch this show without the help of this incredibly influential TV blog. For those of you not familiar with Lucifer, it’s a cop show but with a twist. Lucifer is of ...Click for More

SNL Naked and Afraid

April 3, 2016 // 0 Comments

Peter Dinklage hosted Saturday Night Live last night and it was a pretty good episode. I thought there were lots of funny moments from last night but this one was one of the best of the night. I’ve been very hard on Leslie Jones since she joined the show but she is slowly growing on me. Yes she is basically the same character all the time but so was Chris Farley and so was Adam Sandler. I’m actually starting to enjoy her character. The funniest part of her is that no matter the ...Click for More

Stacey Dash Wins Most Awkward Moment of the Oscars

February 28, 2016 // 0 Comments

We still have another 14 hours of the Oscars left to go yet but we’ve already had the most awkward moment of the night courtesy of Stacy Dash. I have no idea what in the heck she was doing. I think it was supposed to be a joke referencing some of her recent statements in the media but I couldn’t really tell. Whatever it was, it definitely fell flat.  Here is the moment: Stacey Dash Awkward Oscar Moment Chris Rock had a difficult challenge tonight. He had to do something to address ...Click for More

Grease Live!

January 31, 2016 // 0 Comments

Grease Live! I’ve been on the road for just about all of January so I haven’t been able to watch too much TV, let alone write about it for my tens of fans. Tonight though, I got to watch some new TV. A show I’ve been looking forward to since it was first announced, Grease Live! This is the 4th live musical for TV since 2013. The Sound of Music Live! was fantastic. The other two, The Wiz and Peter Pan were meh. Will Grease Live! get the score back to even?  Yes. I think it ...Click for More

Kylo Ren Undercover Boss SNL

January 17, 2016 // 0 Comments

I’m traveling for business again right now so I’m behind on some TV watching and posting. If that upsets you though, you have no one to blame but yourselves. If more of you came here, I would make enough money from this to focus on this full time. We are not quite there. Right now, I think we make nearly 3 or 4 cents per day. It’s going to take a bit more work on your part, the reader, to get us to the goal so please people. Let’s get on it. Anyway, Adam Driver was the ...Click for More

All 169 Episodes of Seinfeld Ranked

December 26, 2015 // 0 Comments

169 Episodes of Seinfeld Ranked Someone took the time to go through all 169 episodes of Seinfeld to rank them from worst to first. As with any list or any rankings, people will argue placement. This list is no different.  I think the biggest problem with this list is probably the methodology used to make the ranking choices. This caused the author to rank some pretty funny episodes much lower than I would have and ranked some much higher than I would have.  You won’t be surprised by ...Click for More

Mike and Molly Canceled

December 13, 2015 // 0 Comments

Mike and Molly Canceled by CBS What the? CBS canceled a show? They never do that. You saw the title of this post so before you go and get all excited that they have finally canceled Two Broke Girls, calm down. They didn’t.  They went ahead and killed a show that was dead long ago. How was the news broken? Not by the producers. Not by the stars. Not by the network. It came from a Facebook post from someone I’m told is a co-star on the show, Rondi Reed. Notice anything else? She ...Click for More

Close Encounter – SNL

December 6, 2015 // 0 Comments

When Kate McKinnon was first brought to Saturday Night Live, I was not a fan. I thought she was there to check a political box for the show trying to make the cast more diverse. I could not have been more wrong about her. Over the years that she has been on the show, she has shown herself to be one of the most talented performers in the cast. She has a versatility that hasn’t been seen since the likes of Ferrell or Hader.  She is brilliantly funny. She can carry a sketch or she can be a ...Click for More

We often make fun of NBC over here at MWTVG as it seems like monkeys are running the sitcom programming department.  They cancel good/great shows like Go On, 1600 Penn, and The New Normal without giving them much of a chance.  Then they give us a show like Superstore. After watching a full hour of this show, I no longer think monkeys run NBC.  No that’s insulting to monkeys which are clearly more evolved than whatever is in charge of programming at NBC.  My best guess is that every ...Click for More

Supergirl is Superbad

October 27, 2015 // 0 Comments

It’s not a bird.  It’s not a man.  It’s Supergirl! Now that’s one condescending tag line. Didn’t we settle the argument of how much better boys are than girls in the movie 50 Shades of Grey? Personally, I can’t wait for the Caitlyn Jenner camp to make a super hero show.  It’s not a bird, it’s not a man, and it’s not a woman.  Wait, what the hell is that?  Oh, it’s Caitlyn.  Now that’s a show I’d watch. Last night ...Click for More

Saturday Night Live Season 41 Premiere

October 4, 2015 // 0 Comments

The Saturday Night Live season 41 premiere was last night on NBC. The premiere episode featured Miley Cyrus as the host and musical guest. Whenever you have Miley Cyrus doing anything, you have to worry about what she is going to do. It’s not that she is not a good performer, because she is a great performer. She’s been acting for years so putting her on this show isn’t like you have someone unskilled who’s never done work like this who never looks at the camera because ...Click for More
