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

Superstore

December 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

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

Grandfathered Premiere

September 29, 2015 // 0 Comments

There are two things I love about the fall. First, it’s great fat guy weather. I can finally get back in to clothes that hide my shame (at least in my head) that don’t make me sweat like I’m a fat guy in a sauna. The other thing I love about fall? It’s TV premiere season. We have had several premieres already this season and tonight, we got one that has been much talked about. Tonight was the Grandfathered premiere. Grandfathered stars the always dreamy John Stamos as a ...Click for More

Last Man on Earth Season 2 Premiere

September 28, 2015 // 0 Comments

One of my favorite new shows of last year was The Last Man on Earth. Will Forte and Kristen Schaal were great on the show that was something totally different and new in the world of sitcoms. Last season ended with Phil (Forte) being banished from Tuscon by the non-insane people he had been trying to live with for thing that were totally justified and correct to warrant a banishment. The Last Man on Earth season 2 premiere brings us up to speed on what Phil and Carol have been doing since ...Click for More

Rosewood

September 24, 2015 // 0 Comments

Rosewood is a new show on Fox about a “private” pathologist who has to hustle around Miami looking for business all the while keeping his car above 55 mph.  I might not have all of that correct, but you get the gist.  Police formula show. The show stars Morris Chestnut (pictured left) who was apparently told to play his character as smuggly as possible. Plus he spent the entire episode in that stupid pinkish t-shirt.  Yeah that’s right, I don’t know what color that ...Click for More

Arnold Schwarzenegger is Taking Over The Apprentice

September 14, 2015 // 0 Comments

Since NBC fired the Donald either because he is running for president and NBC doesn’t want to give him a platform or because he said some things about some people that some other people didn’t like, they need a new host for their on TV much too long show, The Apprentice. It seems now that they have their answer to the question of, “who will we get to tell a bunch of Wharton MBA’s how their inability to properly staff and run a 3 year old’s birthday party means you ...Click for More

WGN’s Pat Tomasulo Visits Nudist Camp to Recreate Top Gun Scene

September 13, 2015 // 0 Comments

I love Pat Tomasulo from WGN. The guy is hysterically funny. He does some of the best reporting segments in Chicago. He is always funny. Recently, Pat visited a nudist camp that is not far from Chicago to check things out. The video itself is very funny. Just check out Pat’s reactions. This is over 5 minutes of fantastic nudist innuendo. Be sure to stay tuned too for Pat getting folks to recreate a famous scene from Top Gun. You are going to have to let your imagination run wild for a ...Click for More

WGN Noticias de mi Corazon

June 7, 2015 // 0 Comments

My favorite news cast in Chicago has been from WGN for a long time. They are a funny group and they do Chicago and national news as well as anyone else around. It’s a good group over there at WGN. They recently came up with this new thing that I just saw recently that I thought was very funny. It comes to us from their news team of Lourdes Duarte and Dan Ponce. These two are the only English-language Hispanic news team in the city and they thought they would expose their viewers to some ...Click for More

Golan The Insatiable

June 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

Golan The Insatiable premiered on Fox last night and I have only one question – did California legalize heroin?  They must have and Fox Studios has become the worlds largest opium den.  There can be no other explanation as to how this show aired on a major network station last night. OK fine, for arguments sake let’s say that Fox has not become the world’s largest opium den in the world.  Let’s further say that the executives who thought it was OK to put this show on ...Click for More
