Jim Gaffigan is the father to 5 children in real life and on his sitcom The Jim Gaffigan Show. The sitcom is back on TV Land tonight at 10p, so honor all the dads out there by watching this hilarious show about the comedian and his family.
On tonight’s season premiere, Jim talks to Father Nicholas (Tongayi Chirisa) and he tells Gaffigan about all the things he did before he became a Priest. For example he was a professional Soccer player and a Benetton model, so Jim wants to know why he gave that all up. The Priest explains that he got a calling and he answered that call. Now Jim is trying to figure out what his calling is as he asks his friends (Michael Ian Black and Adam Goldberg) and his wife Jeanne (Ashley Williams) what their calling is. What is his calling? All I will say it is perfect for today.
Then at 10:30p, Jim learns the power of sending a bad Tweet and how fast his friends and family will turn on him. The episode starts out with him jail and then he goes to court representing himself about an awful Tweet he tweeted out about women. But it isn’t only the female Judge who will be out to get him, so will the opposing lawyer (Zachary Quinto), the witnesses like his friends and Raven Symone and his wife. How will he get out of this conundrum? Will the case be dismissed or will the Judge throw the book at him?
I can tell you that this show is hysterical and you might not listen to me. But I think the fact that Jerry Seinfeld, Macaulay Culkin, Alec Baldwin, Carrot Top and Gilbert Gottfried all guest star on the show, speaks louder than words. They don’t come on anyone’s show and the fact they believe in Gaffigan enough to appear on his says it all. And like I said it really is a funny show and we all need that before we start our work weeks.
CKPG‘s Aileen Machell was reporting on how the International Space Station successfully grew their first crops in their space garden, when Sports reporter Rich Abney made a cheesy joke. Lettuce, I mean, let me tell you about it. When she tossed to him, he said, “It seems like a better idea than eating food grown on Uranus.”
The joke is stupid enough to laugh at, but it was Camille MacDonald’s reaction that truly launched the joke to be out of this world.
TV Land cancelled The Exes yesterday according to the showâ€™s star Kristen Johnston. With that cancellation, that means they have officially cancelled all of their multicam sitcoms for single camera ones. I think that they have had major mistake. Not only because Hot In Cleveland and The Exes have been their best original shows, but because their new shows suck. Not only that, all of the syndicated sitcoms that they air, are multicams too. Multicams have a longer life than the single camera ones. Both Modern Family and How I Met Your Mother, have not done as well in syndication like some of other modern multicams like the ones from Chuck Lorre.
I donâ€™t have a problem with single camera sitcoms, I just have a problem with the ones on TV Land. I didnâ€™t mind Younger, I just think it tried too hard to be relevant. Thereâ€™s a difference between being funny by pushing the envelope and pushing the envelope to get laughs. When it comes to The Jim Gaffigan Show, to me it is clean and boring version of Louie. Why would watch that, if I can just watch the original funnier version. Finally, there is Impastor and that show doesnâ€™t have a prayer. Even though it has been doing crappy in the ratings, TV Land still pulled the plug on The Exes that has been doing better than its lead in. Why, it doesnâ€™t make sense? The Exes has a loyal fan base and I know it will do well on their air in repeats. Can the same be said about the two shows that air before it? Since you donâ€™t know what they are, the answer is no.
So TV Land, you lost a viewer because The Exes was the last show of yours I was watching. Antenna TV and MeTV have proven to be better at showing the oldies but goodies than you are and that is your bread and butter. Since you forgot that, I am sure you will get a reminder when The Soul Man and The Exes are no longer airing new episodes on your air.
Are you becoming exes with TV Land like me?
Jim Gaffigan has a new show coming up on TV Land, so they gave him his own mascot and sent it out on to the streets of Manhattan. As soon as I saw the pictures, I thought that was the ugliest mascot I ever have ever seen. Who thought that was a good idea? Probably the same person who greenlit the sitcom that is like a cleaned up version of Louie.
Terry Crews is hosting this Saturday’s TV Land Awards and he did a memorable performance lip syncing some of the most iconic theme songs to ever grace our televisions. The repertoire includes The Addams Family, Fresh Prince of Bel-Aire, Friends, The Jeffersons, Gilligan’s Island, The Golden Girls, Laverne & Shirley and Good Times.
Good times is something we no longer get at the beginning of TV Shows and I miss them. So tof our Producer friends, can you bring them home because they’ve been stuck on Gilligan’s Island for way too long.
