ABC (Finally) Sets Air Date for 666 Park Avenue

May 21, 2013 // 0 Comments

Attention all you 666 PARK AVENUE fans out there (including yours truly), after cancelling the show midstream and savagely yanking it with only four episodes to go, ABC has finally set an official date for the return of the final episodes. Bear in mind from my previous review, the last four episodes were quite good and culminated to a satisfying conclusion.  Certainly worth tuning in for.  You will also be treated to one of the best characters of the entire series played by (the now-official ...Click for More

666 Park Avenue – Last Four Episodes

March 23, 2013 // 6 Comments

Several months ago I had to go through the heartbreak of one of my favorite shows at the time being cancelled by ABC.  RIP, 666 PARK AVENUE.  You were good while you lasted.  Not like swift cancellation is a foreign concept to ABC, as they get cancel-happy any time a show exhibits any sign of weakness.  In fact, we can expect RED WIDOW to be axed soon based on the previous criteria.  But a cancellation after 75% of the episodes have already run… that’s just cruel. In full ...Click for More

666 Park Avenue – What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

December 1, 2012 // 0 Comments

Now that I’m officially caught up on my backlog of television viewing for the week, I can finally share a quick recap on last Sunday’s episode of 666 PARK AVENUE.  There’s not an awful lot to say as most of the episode focused around Jane recovering in the hospital, but it furthered a couple of good plot points to liven up the back half of the season. Recap and review inside. ...Click for More

Quick Commentary on Cancellation…

November 21, 2012 // 0 Comments

During this time of sorrow as we mourn the loss of our beloved new shows, MIDWEST MO and MIDWEST MIKE are taking the news about LAST RESORT especially hard.  And admittedly, it’s difficult to see grown men cry.  Like seriously, it’s some major waterworks in our mid week staff meetings. The other major cancellation was one that I held dear, 666 PARK AVENUE.  But I’m not nearly as upset about this as my colleagues.  Actually, I never really anticipated the show to get into a ...Click for More

ABC Cancels Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue

November 16, 2012 // 2 Comments

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 ...Click for More

666 Park Avenue – Downward Spiral

November 13, 2012 // 0 Comments

The bittersweet irony of this week’s episode title of 666 PARK AVENUE is that rumors of cancellation are swirling this baby right down the drain.  Even if it doesn’t get picked up for a second season (which at this point is nearly a guarantee), my hopes are that it can at least finish off this season as strongly as it has been going so far.  I will deal with the pain of true cancellation in a few weeks from now. But fear not.  If every single one of you, our devoted readers, ...Click for More

666 Park Avenue – Diabolic

November 9, 2012 // 0 Comments

After an extremely busy week in non-MWTVG Land, I finally got a chance to catch up on some of the other shows that DVR’d through the week.  Last week’s SOUTH PARK was a pretty funny spoof of the Lance Armstrong scandal seeing all of South Park stop believing in Jesus because he was accused of doping back in the biblical times. Even though the past couple seasons have been extremely hit and miss, the hits are always bullseyes (the TSA and Broadway episodes for instance) but the ...Click for More

666 Park Avenue – A Crowd of Demons

October 30, 2012 // 0 Comments

Being out of town last weekend, while being nice and relaxing, didn’t do much for my television watching.  And obviously didn’t do much for my health, as I returned with my yearly head cold.  But fear not, loyal MWTVG reader, because through the wonders of decongestant and a DVR, I will slowly but surely catch up on required viewing. One of my choices for this season’s batch of shows is definitely 666 PARK AVENUE as I have written about before… with this week’s ...Click for More

Watch TV… Burn Calories??

October 29, 2012 // 0 Comments

Disclaimer:  MWTVG claims no responsibility for the beer and/or chips spilled on your keyboard from reading the aforementioned headline. In all seriousness, I stumbled upon an article in The Guardian (because the only legitimate news source on this side of the pond anymore is found here) which cites a study done by scientists at The University of Westminster that essentially says you can burn calories by watching horror movies.  Any horror flick that has frequent “jump ...Click for More

Special side-note:  being one of the top three writers on MWTVG (at least until somebody else starts contributing) is no simple job, but this Midwest Guy is up to the challenge for you, our loyal fan.  Thank you, mom… you birthed a legend. Pretty slow night as far as my television tastes are concerned.  Perusing through the network TV selections, I have no idea what any of those shows are nor do they sound interesting.  There’s something important about naming a show effectively ...Click for More

A Formal Apology…

October 21, 2012 // 1 Comment

I would like to issue a formal apology to the dedicated readers of MWTVG…  At risk of losing all credibility and journalistic integrity, I make the egregious error of completely dismissing a show  before actually watching it. After being let down by ARROW for a second (and possibly final) time, I happened upon my On Demand list where after sifting through the piles of comedic dreck I happened upon 666 PARK AVENUE. Extremely stupid name aside, first impressions are a bear and it was ...Click for More

The Walking Dead – For Real This Time

Special note:  As much as we work on a quality in/quality out basis here at MIDWEST TV GUYS, every now and then something slips past our editorial board.  Like the entire first paragraph of my inaugural posting.  Never to disappoint our rabid fanbase, here is a reposting of my THE WALKING DEAD post in all of it’s glory.  Enjoy, as we send our editors out for SIX SIGMA training! Sunday night was marked by the triumphant return of THE WALKING DEAD to AMC airwaves (But not on DISH ...Click for More

From TV By The Numbers, the following shows are certain cancellations: 666 Park Avenue Last Resort I don’t really care about the first, but I put so much effort in getting Midwest Mike on board and now they are going to cancel?  Any chance CBS will pick it up so I know it’s ...Click for More
