There has been a lot of talk in the news lately about a petition to get CNN host Piers Morgan deported from this country. The political reasons behind the petition are none of our concern here at MWTVG, what is interesting though is that it seems as though you can petition the White House for just about anything you want. Well I say, it’s about time. I have bitched and complained for a long time about the show 2 Broke Girls. I have lamented about how it is a signal that we as Americans are sliding down a path towards darkness and misery. All of my complaining however has done little to solve the problem. The ratings for this show continue to be strong. My only explanation for that is that they are using some kind of subliminal mind control method in their broadcast that makes people unlucky enough to be stuck on CBS at the time the show airs to become unknowing robotic fans of the show. I was lost for what to do next.
So. We all survived the Mayan apocalypse. I’m sure we were all relieved to find out that the world didn’t end on 12/21. Well this is good and bad at the same time. It’s good because hey, the world didn’t end and we are all still here. It’s bad though because we the human race will not be held accountable for our crimes. What crimes? Well I’ve talked about them before but let me remind you of the reasons we all deserved to die:
It’s been a light news day here at MWTVG which I blame on the early Bears game and the fact that this is my last day of vacation and I have to go back to my paying job tomorrow. Not wanting to leave our dear readers with nothing new to read today, I went looking for some news. What I found is that a show that I am a fan of, DON’T TRUST THE B—- IN APT 23, is likely to be cancelled.
Now that Thanksgiving is over, we are on the downhill slide towards the end of the world on December 21. Time is running out and there are more and more signs pointing to the end. 2 BROKE GIRLS, WHITNEY, and HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO remain on TV daring the Mayan gods to smite us. Then Hostess goes out of business and removes the one thing that was going to survive a nuclear apocalypse, the Twinkie, and we are left defenseless against what is coming. All the signs are there people. Continue reading
ABC has cancelled 1st year dramas LAST RESORT and 666 PARK AVENUE. We at MWTVG are upset by this move as we are fans of both shows. We attempted to use our power for good by trying to influence the viewing public in to actually going and watching these shows to save them. We were not successful. That happens often with good shows since America has a tendency to like things that are incredibly stupid that require very little brain power like 2 BROKE GIRLS or THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF __________.
Want to know what’s the worst show on TV? I know most of you think I’ll say 2 BROKE GIRLS, and yes, that show is godawful, but no. The worst show on TV is WHITNEY. 2 BROKE GIRLS can’t help themselves. Neither of the women that star on that show are talented in any way and their show is on CBS. There isn’t much that can be done for that show so to keep hating on it is just not gentlemanly, and I’m nothing if not a gentleman.
WHITNEY however? This show has no excuse. It stars one of my favorite comedians, Whitney Cummings, who is a seriously funny woman. You might recognize her from the Comedy Central Roast series. Here she is roasting Joan Rivers:
This lady is really funny. You would think that putting her on her own show would be gold right? Well no. You’d be wrong. I had high hopes for this show last season but within just 1 episode, I was out. The show is painful. I don’t think, or at least I hope, that Whitney has anything to do with the writing of the show because there are absolutely no jokes on the show. Seriously. There isn’t one funny thing that ever happens on the show. Here is the trailer. It tells you everything you need to know:
NBC waited to air WHITNEY this season until using it as a mid-season replacement and since they cancelled ANIMAL PRACTICE, they had a slot for it. The travesty is that rather than bringing COMMUNITY back now, they chose to go with WHITNEY before COMMUNITY. If that doesn’t mean that NBC really wants to kill COMMUNITY, then I don’t know what does.
So NBC cancelled ANIMAL PRACTICE because of low ratings. What did WHITNEY rate on her season premiere? Well, she tied ANIMAL PRACTICE. Does that mean NBC will finally euthanize this show? We can only hope and pray. If not, well you know what I think about the Mayans. Let’s hope that Whitney isn’t here to end the world.

I’ve said before that these guys are very funny. If you aren’t watching this show, you ought to be. Well I take that back, if you aren’t watching this show and you are a fan of comedy or you can understand things that are funny, then you should be watching this show. If you like 2 BROKE GIRLS or 2 AND A HALF MEN, then this show isn’t for you because you might be a moron and without a laugh track, I don’t think you would get where the jokes are.
Here is a hilarious skit from this week’s episode:
These guys are just plain funny. Check them out some time.
The Travel Channel has announced that they have just signed a deal with Poison front man Bret Michaels (ROCK OF LOVE, THE FREE CLINIC) called ROCK MY RV. Reports say that the show will be about well known RV enthusiast Michaels taking viewers through the thrilling process of pimping out RVs to make them Rock and/or Roll style pimp-mobiles. Tune in to the first episode where I’m told by sources that Michaels will help put a penicillin storage locker and a foxy boxing ring in to an RV.
We will be testing the Mayan’s theory hard core with this show. It is not slated to air until 2013 which is after the date the Mayans have said we are all going to die so, if it airs, it will mean the Mayans are wrong. If the Mayans are right though, will we have really lost? If we aren’t here any more, this show can’t get on TV and I for one am willing to make that sacrifice. I would bet that most of humanity is also willing to die to prevent this show from making it on the air. Wait. What am I talking about? 9 million people watched 2 Broke Girls last week. I take it all back. There really is no hope for humanity.
I’m starting to pray that the Mayans are right. Here are the final ratings for Monday night TV:

9.3 Million people watched 2 BROKE GIRLS!!!!!! Does anyone know if there were stone carvings of these two on any of the Mayan’s rocks?
I’m pretty sure this is a sign that the end of the world is approaching.
