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 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

The Island Premiere on NBC

May 26, 2015 // 0 Comments

One of my favorite shows on TV is Survivor. When it comes to reality TV, I just don’t think it gets any better than Survivor. It seems that NBC is trying to get in on that action now with the Island premiere last night. The Island is a survivor-like show but without the game aspect and all the tribal councils and voting out that makes Survivor so good. The Island is just going to be about surviving on a deserted island. No games. Just survival. Ok that sounds somewhat interesting. The ...Click for More

The Muppets Official Trailer

May 12, 2015 // 0 Comments

ABC just released the first trailer for the upcoming return of The Muppets and…it looks fantastic.  Here it is: The Muppets Official Trailer If you didn’t catch it from the trailer, this version of The Muppets is going to be far different than any version you have ever seen before. They are saying this is going to be a more adult version of The Muppets, which is great. Many of you may not know this, but The Muppets were first intended to be adult humor. Want to know who made many ...Click for More

NBC Has Pretty Much Quit the Sitcom Game

May 10, 2015 // 0 Comments

NBC, once the king of network comedy, is very nearly out of the sitcom game come this fall. The network that used to own Thursday nights with it’s Must See TV and has had countless comedy hits over the years has struggled as of late to put anything funny on their network. They have struggled so much that they are pretty much giving up on comedy.  Come this fall, they will only have one hour of comedy programming on during the week and that one hour will be on Friday nights. The two ...Click for More

Caroll Spinney – Sesame Street’s Big Bird – Reddit AMA

May 7, 2015 // 0 Comments

Big Bird AMA If you are not familiar with Reddit, it’s generally a cesspool of idiot teenagers and 20 somethings telling dick jokes and repeating the same memes over and over and over. Every now and then though, you find something worth while on there. There is a sub-reddit there called Ask Me Anything (AMA) that is very hit or miss. It’s gotten so big now that they get celebrities to come on there and answer questions that are asked from the mouth breathers at Reddit. Sometimes ...Click for More

The Last Man on Earth Season Finale

May 5, 2015 // 0 Comments

The Last Man on Earth season finale just happened the other day. I apologize for not getting to write about it immediately because my job, the one that pays the bills, is keeping me a bit busy. So. Season 1. It’s over. It has already been picked up for season 2 so if you are a fan, you don’t have to worry that the show will end the way it did.  We are going to get more. My question is, what will we be getting more of? The Last Man on Earth is one of the most unique comedies to come ...Click for More

I Can Do That

May 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

About 10-15 years ago we reached a point where every conceivable concept remotely imaginable was at some point or other a TV show.  It got so bad that at one point there was not one but two celebrity diving shows airing at the same time. It’s inevitable really as there are approximately 467 channels out there all looking for content.  Hell, I don’t even think current shows are writing all that much new content.  What I mean is that if you watch a lot of TV like us, you may see ...Click for More

The Weird Loners Premiere

April 1, 2015 // 0 Comments

Here’s what I generally think of shows that make their premiere on March 31: The Weird Loners premiere was last night on Fox. It’s such an awesome new show that Fox didn’t premiere it in the Fall with all the other new shows. It’s such an awesome show that Fox didn’t premiere it in the 2nd half of the new season in January or February. No. It’s so awesome, that Fox buried it on March 31. That’s how much faith they have in this new show of theirs. After ...Click for More
