It is a very dark day for me because not only is my power out where I live, but TBS cancelled one of the funniest comedies on television. The network announced today that they will not be bringing back Sullivan & Son back for a fourth season.
I really enjoyed this sitcom about an old school bar in Pittsburgh. It reminded me of home, back when I went to bars like that before I was 21. That wasn’t the only reason why I loved this show, what made it so funny is they picked on everyone and everything and no one was safe. Because of that, I found myself laughing my a$$ off every week.
So thank you to everyone who worked on Sullivan & Son, at least we had 3 beertastic seasons!
Tonight at 9p on TNT, Rizzoli and Isles say goodbye to one of their own. On August 19, 2013, we were all shocked when news came out that Lee Thompson Young had passed away and tonight the show he was starring in at the time says goodbye to him and his character, Barry Frost. The show does a beautiful tribute to him as they remember him throughout the episode and at his character’s funeral.
Anyone who is and has been a fan of this of police drama will want to tune in because it is a must not miss episode for us.
Also at 9p, but on ABC Family is Chasing Life. April Carver (Italia Ricci) is assigned a story that will change her life. A man claims that his carrot juice is helping people with cancer, so she talks to him about and tries a sample. When she comes back to see him, he realizes that she has cancer like him and she finally has someone to talk about her leukemia. So now she has someone can relate to, but something happens that changes everything and her perspective about it all. How will it change her, we will just have to tune in next week to find out.
Tonight’s episode is the first one that really deals with the emotions that come to a cancer patient after their diagnosis and because of that is a very powerful one.
Finally at 10p a storm is coming to NBC’s The Night Shift and our doctors will be caught up in it. There is a dangerous storm on the outside and that one isn’t even as bad as the one that is happening in the hospital. Scott Wolf joins the team tonight as the lead trauma surgeon. Scott Collins (Wolf) is dating Jordan (Jill Flint) and he is going to cause problems for her ex, TJ (Eoin Macken). Those two don’t see eye to eye and their conflict is going to get a whole lot worse before the ground is even dry again.
Meanwhile Topher (Ken Leung) gets a call from his wife that she is labor. But it gets worse because she was in a car accident and trapped in the storm. And gets even worse because she doesn’t know where she is. Will he find her before it is too late? You will just have to watch this emotional episode to find out.
Oh yes, yes, yes, Sullivan & Son is back on TBS tonight at 10p and I am so excited about it. Could be because the third season premiere is all about orgasms!
Tonight is Susan (Vivian Bang) and Jason’s (guest star Ken Jeong) 10th anniversary and he wants to give her something he has never given her. So he asks her what that might be and she admits to him that he has never given her an orgasm. Well now he is so determined to give her one, that he asks the guys (Steve Byrne, Owen Benjamin, Brian Doyle-Murray, Christine Ebersole, Roy Wood, Jr and Ahmed Ahmed) at the bar for tips. Then they all find out that one of the gang slept with Susan when she was a teen and he gave her an orgasm. So now Jason is more depressed. Will he ever give his wife The Big O? You just have to tune in to see what finally does it for her.
Well that and to watch a very very very funny show. And to see and hear the best fake orgasm since When Harry Met Sally. Seriously, Sullivan & Son gets better and better with each season and I can’t wait to see what else happens this season.
BTW if for some strange reason the season premiere doesn’t leave you satisfied, there is another episode of the sitcom at 10:30p.
Imagine you’ve been on US Navy Ship in a remote location with no communication whatsoever for several months; and then when you finally do talk to someone, you find out that 80% of the world has died or is dying from a pandemic. To make matters worse for you, is the person (Rhona Mitra) who is working on the cure is on your ship. What would you do? That is the basis for the very thrilling The Last Ship that debuts on TNT tonight at 9p.
Commander Tom Chandler (Eric Dane) is manning the ship and he has to keep his men and women calm as they learn that their families might be dead. Besides dealing with that, they are being attacked by other nations who want the cure. There is no leadership in the world anymore because many of the leaders have died from the fast spreading virus. So they have no way of seeking help from anyone or any country because they don’t know who to trust. They don’t know if there are any safe places to dock at because there are very few people to talk to and those numbers are diminishing by the moment. Then since they have been trapped on the ship for several months, their supplies are running low, so how will they get what they need to survive themselves.
How will they survive? Will they survive? We will just have to tune in every week to find out.
I am obsessed with movies and TV shows about viruses, and I can tell you that The Last Ship gets it right. I don’t like Michael Bay, who is the Executive Producer of this drama, and after 3 episodes, I can tell you I love this show and I know you will too. The drama is very contagious.
Rizzoli & Isles is back on TNT at 9p tonight with a case that is very close to Rizzoli’s (Angie Harmon) heart, or should I say stomach. That’s because she looks into a case of a murdered woman and while at the crime she notices the woman’s baby’s stroller is hidden in the bushes. But where is the baby? Now, she must find that baby before it is too late. And during the whole time, she’s keep her pregnancy a secret from everyone but Isles (Sasha Alexander). Will she be able to keep a secret? You just have to tune in to find out.
And the final minutes of the show deal with Lee Thompson Young’s death. Next week’s episode is a tribute to him, so get the tissues ready because it is an emotional goodbye.
Then at 10p Perception is back on TNT tonight and Dr. Daniel J. Pierce (Eric McCormack) is in Paris. His life is better than ever, until someone from the FBI there approaches him about getting something from a Chinese doctor. Everything goes as planned, but once he drops the item off he finds himself in trouble. Everything he thought he was happening wasn’t. So is his schizophrenia getting the better of him or is he really in trouble? You just have to tune in this beautifully shot surprising episode to find out.
Also at 10p, Fargo concludes its run at FX. I can review the episode, but I might spoil it for you. And I don’t want to end up like a lot of the characters from the show in the episode. That’s because there is more than one death in the finale. How many? You just have to tune into this chilling episode to find out who…
Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson are playing San Fransisco homicide detectives in TNT’s riveting new 10-episode murder mystery drama Murder in the First that airs Mondays at 10p; and recently at a press event they told us how they prepared for their roles.
When asked what training, if any, they had to have to play cops on the show, Diggs said he watched a lot of Law & Order. Then he admitted he was joking about that.
So how did they get ready for the role? The actors went to police camp, where they learned how to shoot guns, take down a perp and put on handcuffs. Along with going to police camp, Robertson did ride alongs and those really helped her to prepare. Not only because she got see places like crack dens, but because she got to see how the police officers she was with interacted with the “bad guys”. She admitted she is used to rough and tough cops we see on TV, but that is not how they are in real life. She says, the cops would point someone out to her, explain that person’s crime and then before she knew it they were having a conversation with that “bad guy”. It was very casual and not what she was used to in her line of work. It is that type of interaction that will help with an upcoming storyline on the show, but I have said too much.
Emotion was important to Robertson and the biggest lesson that stuck with her about that came from her brother-in-law who has been working as a police officer for 26 years in Toronto. A moment that stood out to her when she was researching for the role, came when they were walking around a gorgeous lake in Northern Ontario. She then had to pause for an emotional break before she told us what lesson he shared with her that sticks with her every day she comes to work. He said to her as they walked the lake, “For example right now, the first thing I think of when I look here, is I am looking for a body.” She says he then added, “I walk down here and I walk across this beautiful lake and these rocks and I’m scanning, making sure there’s no body here so you guys don’t have to see it.” She then asked him to explain what he meant and he responded by saying, “Cause I’ve seen too much of that and it’s just in me. It will be in me for my entire life.” She then realized what a dark life they have and that is what stuck with her most about researching for the role.
Something that you can see when you watch her play Inspector Hildy Mulligan every Monday at 10p on Murder in the First.
Major Crimes is back on TNT tonight at 9p and you will never guess what happens next in this thrilling episode. A father and his two kids go missing when his wife is out of town, and no one knows what happened to them. His wife becomes the main suspect because blood was found in their home. But why would she kill her husband and 2 young kids? And where are they? The answers to these questions will have you gasping as you find out what really happened. So tune into find out.
Then at 10p, stay on TNT to watch Stephen Bochco’s newest crime drama, Murder in the First.
SFPD homicide detectives Terry English (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson) are called to investigate the shooting death of a man, and find out his last email was asking for money from Erich Blunt (Tom Felton), who is a young Silicon Valley prodigy and multimillionaire. At first they think that the connection is random, but turns out the two men know each other. Since they have a past, he becomes their prime suspect. Especially after his personal stewardess that Blunt just fired, also winds up murdered.
Is he the one who killed them both? Or is it Blunt’s good friend and pilot, Bill Wilkerson (Steven Weber)? Or maybe even his lawyer, David Hertzberg (Richard Schiff) was the one who did it? We will just have tune in each week to this series event find out. This is not a crime of the week show, it a show about one crime.
The mystery is so good, that only one person has properly guessed who it is. That one person is a homicide detective who consults for the show. No one else but him has guessed who it is and believe me many have tried. So if you think you know who committed the crime, you are probably wrong. And who doesn’t love a good mystery? I know I do, and this well written, brilliantly acted show is a good mystery and so much more.
What if you went to the supermarket and saw your photo on the side of a milk carton? Or went to post office and saw a bowling ball come out of a flat box? Or a chicken being born in a box of a eggs at the grocery store? What would you do? That is what The Carbonaro Effect tries to find out on TruTV at 10p.
Michael Carbonaro is a magician who also turns out to be a great prankster. So each week, he will use his magic to shock unsuspecting people with it and their reaction are better than you could ever expected. Unlike some other hidden camera shows there is nothing cruel about this one and it’s all in good fun. Because of that it is just fun to watch and you hope that one day you run into him with a camera hidden somewhere around him.
So tune in for a hidden camera show that is unlike any other.
Angie Harmon shared a picture of herself with her newest stand in on Rizzoli & Isles and I am not sure if they really look like her. I can’t put my finger on it, but she has something they don’t.
Do you think they look like her?
Owen Benjamin Tweeted this picture of himself dressed as a stripper for an upcoming episode of TBS’s Sullivan & Son, and he looks hot. Who knew that comedians have such good bodies under all of that clothes?
