Is Happy Endings Returning?

February 8, 2015 // 0 Comments

One of my favorite shows of the last 5 years that was cancelled way too soon just might be making a come back. There is a rumor going around the internet right now that Happy Endings might be returning after it was cancelled in 2013 by the morons at ABC. This cryptic tweet by one of the writers of Happy Endings started the rumors: Happy Endings returning would be fantastic news. I would love if this is true. Lots of things need to happen for this to fall in to place so let’s take a look ...Click for More

Benched on USA Pilot Review

October 17, 2014 // 0 Comments

Being the big time TV writers that we are around here, we got access again to another TV pilot before the rest of the unwashed masses. This time I got to watch the pilot for Benched on USA. In a word…wow. It’s fantastic. Benched is a new comedy that will premiere on the USA network on October 28. It stars one of my favorite people, Eliza Coupe. You might remember her as the tough doctor Denise on Scrubs or even better, as Jane on Happy Endings. She is a seriously funny lady who ...Click for More

Marry Me Pilot Review

October 15, 2014 // 0 Comments

I’ve been waiting for this show for a while now. Finally, Marry Me premiered last night on NBC. I was somewhat nervous because of the late premiere of this new show. Anything having to wait until October generally isn’t thought to be very strong by the network. Getting buried with an October 14 premiere date just can’t be a good sign. I was worried. As it turns out, the Marry Me pilot was much better than I thought it was going to be. In fact, it was at the level I had hoped ...Click for More

Happy Endings Cancelled by ABC

May 12, 2013 // 3 Comments

In more WTF TV news, Happy Endings has been cancelled by ABC.  We found out recently that the geniuses at NBC cancelled two very good freshmen shows, Go On and 1600 Penn, while saving the now awful Community.  Now, apparently not wanting to be seen as less stupid than NBC, the geniuses at ABC cancelled what is one of the funniest shows on TV. We here at MWTVG have been fans of this show from the very beginning and have done all that we can to talk it up.  It’s set in Chicago (although ...Click for More

Happy Endings Is Back Tonight

March 29, 2013 // 0 Comments

In what might be the most annoying promotional campaign I’ve seen in a while, ABC is telling us that in order to save Happy Endings, we need to watch it tonight. Wow, you move one of the best sitcoms to the wasteland that is Friday night and tell us it’s up to us to save it?  I guess you’ve done all you can do. . Here’s the promo for tonight’s ...Click for More

Happy Endings Funny As Ususal

December 12, 2012 // 1 Comment

HAPPY ENDINGS continues to be a very funny show.  Last night’s show featured a couple of well know guest actors playing the mom and dad of Elisha Cuthbert. You may remember Julie Hagerty (a Midwest girl from Cincinnati, OH) from her most famous role as stewardess (that’s right, that’s what they were called then) Elaine Dickenson in Airplane. Christopher McDonald was “Shooter McGavin” in Happy Gilmore, among a long list of credits. I couldn’t find any clips ...Click for More

Let’s Talk About Tuesday Night Comedies…

December 5, 2012 // 0 Comments

  I’ll just say it – Tuesday night is the funniest night on TV.  I know the other authors on this site are more interested in zombies, motorcycle gangs, or cooking shows, but thankfully I am here to cover the network comedies for you. If you look at the line-up for Tuesday night, I feel that there are 6 solid comedies and 2 very watchable shows.  So here’s the list of solid comedies: Raising Hope (FOX) Ben and Kate (FOX) New Girl (FOX) Go On (NBC) The New Normal (NBC) ...Click for More

Midwest Actor – Lamorne Morris

November 18, 2012 // 0 Comments

We like to feature actors that come from the Midwest here at MWTVG.  Let me introduce you to one that comes from right around the same area as the MWTVG team, the suburbs of Chicago.  This guy even went to my high school, Glenbard South, and I didn’t even know it. This is Midwestern actor Lamorne Morris: You might recognize him as Winston Bishop on the Fox comedy NEW GIRL.  Morris studied acting at the College of DuPage in suburban Chicago and has been working regularly since 2000. ...Click for More

Happy Endings Awesome As Usual

November 14, 2012 // 0 Comments

The show is just funny.  It seems to me the formula for a successful Sitcom is to put about 5-6 interesting characters together and not focus on any one character to the point you would get tired of that character. I get the fact that last night’s episode contained a ridiculous premise in that 2 of the guys were going to go into the Bar Mitzvah (yes I had to look up the spelling) business.  I have been relentless in making fun of other shows that do this (Guys With Kids). Still, ...Click for More

10 of the Funniest Men on TV (currently)

October 28, 2012 // 4 Comments

Notice how I didn’t call this list the 10 funniest men on TV?  It’s impossible to find just 10 funny guys on TV.  There are really just so many.  To narrow the list some, I am only looking at men who are on TV right now.  This isn’t an all-time list.  Louis C.K. is omitted because his show isn’t on TV right now and I’m guessing it won’t be back.  Otherwise, he would for sure be on this list.  Anyway, here are 10 guys on TV right now that I think are ...Click for More

The 10 Funniest Women on TV (currently)

October 25, 2012 // 3 Comments

So MIDWEST MO wrote an article the other day asking if women are actually funny.  If you are not a fan of 30 ROCK, you probably missed his reference to the show since that is a question that was asked on last week’s episode. So before anyone runs off thinking that we here at MWTVG don’t recognize funny when we see it, here are what I think, and we all know that what I think is what matters, are the top 10 funniest women currently (this isn’t an all-time list, they have to be ...Click for More

The Funniest Man on TV

October 23, 2012 // 1 Comment

Is this guy right here: Damon Wayans, Jr. from HAPPY ENDINGS.  The show is genuinely funny.  It’s a great ensemble show that is rare for a comedy these days in that it doesn’t suffer from Ted Mosby syndrome.  Everyone on the show is funny in their own way and each person adds to the show.  Damon though, he is the standout on the show. If you aren’t watching this show, check it out.  It’s funny and smart and it’s  not the kind of show you need to watch from ...Click for More
