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 America who noticed last night that 2 different CBS sitcoms (How I Met Your Mother & Mom) made a reference to the movie Juno. Really, a mildly entertaining movie from 6 years ago on both shows. That can’t be a coincidence. It appears that the writers are doing double duty over at CBS (yes I said duty, grow up).
- How I Met Your Mother – I officially hate this show. 5 episodes in and we are no closer to meeting the mother. OK it was funny when Barney said to Robin after she beat his mother in strip poker, “No more playing strip poker with my mother. It’s all kinds of confusing.” Note to the producers – if he doesn’t meet her soon, be on the look out for a crazy guy from the Midwest driving a blue Toyota Camry. You’ve been warned.
- The View – According to Radar Online, Jenny McCarthy is in jeopardy of losing her job on The View. Apparently viewers tune out whenever she talks. That’s just freaking hilarious. Oh, and it’s rumored they are trying to fix her performance. How the hell do you fix annoying. If they can, they should bottle and sell that.
- Meg Ryan – I’m watching WGN News this morning and Dean Richards had a segment about how Meg Ryan might be getting her own TV show. During the segment, reference was made to her dating John Cougar Mellencamp. That would have been super big news in 1995.
So that’s it. Look forward to more of these segments. At least until the pharmacy refills my prescription.
