Today I don’t feel like doing anything, I just wanna lay in my bed. Don’t feel like picking up my phone, so leave a message at the tone’ cause today I swear I’m not doing anything.  Bruno Mars For those of us that have to do something today, here’s what’s going on around the web.  Happy Friday. So Dr. Death I mean Dr. Drew has decided to call it quits for Celebrity Rehab.  I hope it’s not because of all the criticism we’ve given him over ...Click for More

1600 Penn

December 17, 2012 // 0 Comments

NBC ran a sneak preview of their new comedy 1600 Penn tonight and…it wasn’t bad.  The show stars Bill Pullman (Independence Day) as the President, Jenna Elfman (Dharma & Greg) as the First Lady, and Josh Gad (The Book of Mormon) as the oldest kid. The show is written by Josh Gad, Jason Winer (who has written for such big-time shows as Modern Family and New Girl), and former White House speech writer Jon Lovett. The show wasn’t a laugh a minute by any means, but it has ...Click for More

Midwest Mo stole my thunder with his post this morning in his Around the Web post, but I still want to talk about it.  KEY & PEELE has been renewed for a 3rd season by Comedy Central. I am a big fan of this show.  I have told you all about it repeatedly and I couldn’t be happier that they are getting another ...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

I know everybody loves this show and it’s not like I don’t like it.  Last night’s show was a swing and a miss.  Here is a recap of the show (The Filtered Lens): The fourth season of Modern Family continued with yet another lackluster episode. The Butler’s Escape suffered from one thing, predictability. Every plot point was visible from a mile away, and that made the jokes far less surprising and therefore, funny. Gloria’s pregnancy has been almost a complete failure to ...Click for More

2 Broke Girls, 1 Broke America

October 15, 2012 // 2 Comments

So I watched an episode of 2 BROKE GIRLS tonight because, as a professional writer, it is my duty to do the unpleasant things that professionals sometimes have to do in the name of our craft. So after watching this episode tonight, I have to ask, WTF is wrong with you America?  Over 4 million people watched this show last week!  It was the 11th highest rated show on broadcast TV last week!  What this tells me is that there are over 4 million American’s out there who can’t be ...Click for More

1600 Penn

October 13, 2012 // 0 Comments

As a professional TV writer, it is important to stay on top of pilots for shows and who is getting picked up and who isn’t.  As part of the research for MWTVG, you know, because I’m a professional writer, I found this show from NBC that will be airing as a mid-season replacement in the Spring: 1600 PENN stars Bill Pullman (SPACEBALLS, INDEPENDENCE DAY) as the President who has moved in to the White House with his dysfunctional family.  This will be the 2nd time Pullman is playing ...Click for More

Modern Family

October 10, 2012 // 0 Comments

MODERN FAMILY delivered tonight.  ABC ran two episodes back to back to help give their new show NASHVILLE a stronger lead in than THE NEIGHBORS and both episodes delivered. The highlights for me: In the first episode, Cam and Mitchell meet a lesbian couple played by Wendi McLendon-Covey (RENO 911) and Michaela Watkins (she had a cup of coffee on SNL), and the cattiness (is that a word?  It is now. ) between Cam and Wendi’s character is hysterical because everyone loves jokes about ...Click for More
