Mulaney is not the first show cancelled, but in a way it is. That’s because The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Fox told them to stop production at 13, 3 episodes short of what the network asked for.
At this point, for some reason, Fox plans on airing the remaining 11 episodes. But if tonight’s show bombs more than it has already been doing, Fox will pull this sh!tty sitcom from their lineup. Hopefully they will before the cat episode airs. Which is one of the one episodes to ever be made for television.
Dear Fox, It’s OK to have the first cancelled show of the season. You’ve done it before and this show needs to be put out of our misery. Please!
Tonight at 9p on Fox’s Sleepy Hollow, Crane (Tom Mison) and Mills (Nicole Beharie) investigate the disappearance of a 10 year old girl. While they are searching for her in the woods, they find a flute made out human bone. When Ichabod plays it, Abby goes under into a trance. It is then that he realizes that the musical instrument belongs to the Pied Piper.
Just as they find a way to possibly locate the little girl, they find Nick Hawley (Matt Barr) nearby and he was looking for that skeleton flute. Hawley tells them the story behind it and now they know they have a limited amount of time to find the girl. And if they do find her, there is another part of the legend that complicates it even more.
Tonight’s episode is equal parts scary, suspenseful and fun. Wait, what is the fun? Crane learns how to drive a car tonight. Some cars might be named after horses but that doesn’t mean driving one is like riding one. Then there is another cute moment towards the end of the episode you should look out for. I won’t tell you what it is because it is too sweet to spoil.
I love sitcoms. I love bad sitcoms. I actually liked Caveman, Work It, Dads and Outsourced to name a few, so you can tell my standards are pretty low. I thought that Whitney and Mixology were awful, but those shows were actually better than Mulaney that debuts on Fox tonight at 9:30p.
Some people are comparing this show to Seinfeld, because it has four characters like the classic comedy and it takes place in NYC. Other than that, it is not like Seinfeld. It’s like the intern who was working in accounting on the ’90s sitcom is the one writing Mulaney. It is that unfunny.
It is not only that the storylines are horrendous, it is so sickening that they landed comedic legends like Martin Short, Elliott Gould, Penny Marshall and Lorraine Bracco to appear on it too. We finally get Martin Short back on TV and he is thrown into this piece of crap. Even he can’t make you laugh because everything about his character and the show is so awful that not even brilliance can make this stupidity seem smart.
There is an episode where his roommate Jane (Nasim Pedrad) decides to give up on men, so she gets a cat. When the pet doesn’t show her the affection she wants, she starts to seduce the kitty. The feline’s horrified reaction to her desperation is just like the expression you will have on your face when you watch this show that is exactly something the pussy left in the litter box for Jane.
It’s funny, I have read articles that John Mulaney says that he is the inexperienced one in this bunch, but shockingly he is better actor than his co-stars Perad, Seaton Smith and Zack Pearlman.
Now when it comes to describing the plots of the show, I can’t. After watching four episodes, I am try to block out the horror that is known as Mulaney.
You can check out this show to see if all the critics were right when they said that this show sucks, but why suffer. We already did it for you.
Tonight at 8p on Fox, Bones and her team will use of the energy and resources to find out who killed their friend Sweets. Everyone will work tirelessly to solve the murder and by the end of the episode, they will know who did it. A smart move on the show’s part because I think if they would’ve let it continue on for much longer they would’ve lost some viewers. At least that is how I was feeling towards the procedural.
Besides solving Sweets’ murder, there will be a lot touching moments as they remember him. So have the tissues ready because you are going to need them.
Then at 9p, the suspenseful 10-part series Gracepoint debuts on Fox.
Detective Ellie Miller (Anna Gunn) is back in her small Northern California town of Gracepoint after a short vacation, and that feeling you get when you come back from a one will quickly be gone from her. She was supposed to get a promotion when she returned, but she finds out that they hired a stranger to fill the position. Just when she gets over the fact that Detective Emmett Carver (David Tennant) got her job, they are called out to case. A dead 12-year-old boy has been found on the beach, and Danny is her son’s best friend.
Now the town is rocked by his murder and everyone will be a suspect. As they investigate Danny’s murder, secrets will be revealed. The sleepy town is woken up in a way they never wanted to be.
So tune in every Thursday over the next few months to see if you can guess who murdered Danny. I have seen the first seven episodes of the mini-series, and I have no clue who did it. Because of that, I so want to know who the murderer is because this drama is a real nail biter. Every time you think you know what happened, something will happen that will throw you for a loop. So unlike those weekly procedurals, you will never who did it by the end of the episode. Well you will know by the final one.
Utopia’s ratings are anything but peaceful for Fox, so they made a decision that works for them. Instead of airing the reality show/year long project twice a week, they are cutting it down to once a week starting immediately.
This Tuesday, they will re-air the brilliant Family Guy/The Simpsons crossover episode. Thus, if you missed it, you can see it then. If you have seen it, then watch it again because it was sheer perfection. The following week, The Simpsons deadly season premiere and the one for Bob’s Burgers will repeat before new episodes of New Girl and The Mindy Project at 9p. The two weeks after that, it is time for that baseball thingy. Finally, on November 4th, Fox’s best reality show MasterChef Junior is back for its second season.
Gordon Ramsay’s latest cooking competition show was originally supposed to air on Friday nights. Since it is boiling hot and Utopia is not, Fox decided to switch things up. What will air in its Friday timeslot is yet to be determined. I am assuming repeats of Gotham for the foreseeable future.
Now the big question of the day, is if a show that airs two nights a week is cut down to one, does that make it the first show cancelled of the season? I say, if Mulaney isn’t the first show pulled completely from the lineup, then yes. If another show bites the dust before the unfunniest comedy on television, then no.
I have to say, I never thought Utopia was going to work. There is just something about it that doesn’t scream Fox or basically, television.
Gotham was the most buzzed new show last week and you will be talking about tonight’s episode on Fox at 8p even more.
Penguin, I mean, Oswald (Robin Lord Taylor) is starting his new life outside of Gotham and the villain we know is born. He is pure evil. No matter how bad he is, you still can’t help but to love him.
Meanwhile back in Gotham, some is kidnapping the homeless teens and no one knows what happened to them. Gordon (Ben MacKenzie) and Bullock (Donal Logue) are assigned to the case. Just when they think they figure it out something will happen that will change all of that.
One of the teens mixed up in this mess is Cat (which is short for Catwoman) and she will do anything to break free from it. Cat (Camren Bicondova) will beg to see James Gordon, but will her request be made?
From a cat to a fish, Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) that is. Falcone (John Doman) confronts her on the rumor that she is trying to off him and she denies it. Now that her plan has been exposed she is even more determined to get rid of him.
Finally, there is Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) and he is dealing with his parents’ murder in a dangerous way. Alfred (Sean Pertwee) can’t get through to him, so he asks Gordon for some help.
Did I mention that Penguin is sinfully bad?
You don’t have to know everything about Batman to love this show, you just have to love good TV to love it.
Then at 9p, there is a new sheriff in Sleepy Hollow and she is tough. Sheriff Lena Vasquez (Sakina Jaffrey) has ties to the town, but it doesn’t mean that she knows about its legend. Because of that she is not going to let Abbie (Nicole Beharie), Crane (Tom Mison) and Jenny (Lyndie Greenwood) get away with the stuff that Irving (Orlando Jones) did. On that note the former-Captain is on tonight’s episode, so you will see what he has been up to.
Back to Crane and Abbie, they are looking for a way to save Katrina, and they will do the unthinkable to make it happen. Is that enough to save her?
Tune in for another episode that will surprise you as it keeps you in suspense what will happen next. Things happen that you can never imagine, but are normal for this quaint legendary NY town.
Yesterday we fell in love with Red Band Society, and a big part of that admiration is because of how Charlie Rowe plays his loveable character. Leo is fighting cancer and he’s taking Chemo to beat it. As we know if you get chemotherapy, there is a good chance you are going to lose your hair. Leo is one of those people who has gone bald because of it. That means Rowe had to do the same, and Fox just released this video of the big day. We have seen actresses like Shailene Woodley and Karen Gillan get very nervous as they cut off their long locks for movies, and it’s nice to see male actors feel the same way about going under the razor.
I don’t know what surprised me more about this video, how cute Rowe is with hair (don’t get me wrong he still looks good bald) or that he’s English? What surprised you more?
Red Band Society debuts on Fox tonight at 9p and this is a show you want to check in to.
It is the story of six teenagers trapped in a hospital with debilitating health issues, and they aren’t going to let that stop them from living life to the fullest.
Leo (Charlie Rowe) is the makeshift leader of the group. He has cancer and it has taken his leg. He is the one that brings everyone together and the one they listen to.
Dash (Astro) is Leo’s best friend and he has Cystic fibrosis. He is the cool one.
Charlie (Griffin Gluck) has been in there the longest. Even though he is in a coma that doesn’t stop him from being part of the group.
Tonight he gets a new roommate. Kara (Zoe Levin) is a bitchy cheerleader who doesn’t seem to have a heart. But we find out she does have one because she needs a new one.
Emma (Ciara Bravo) is anorexic, and up until Kara arrived, she was the only girl there. She had all of the boys’ attention and now she has to share it.
Finally, there’s Jordi (Nolan Sotillo) and he is the newest member of the society because he finagles his way into the hospital. Just like Leo has cancer in the leg and doctors are going to have to remove it. Before the doctors take it, the Red Band Society throws him one last party for it.
This is there story of living life to the fullest even though the odds are against them.
Since this is a hospital, there is a staff there to make sure they are taken care of. Nurse Jackson (Octavia Spencer) is the tough one who doesn’t take their crap, but she really cares. Just like Dr McAndrew (Dave Annable) who wants to see his patients make it out of there alive. They let the kids get away with a lot, but they do set some limits.
Red Band Society will make you laugh, warm your heart and bring a few tears to your eyes. It is a drama unlike anything else on television. Sometimes we need a change from the ordinary, and this drama is it.
Back in May, Fox announced that Fox’s Chairman of Entertainment, Kevin Reilly, was stepping down at the end of the June. Yesterday, on the last day of the month, they announced the first show that he gave his thumbs up for that will not be airing. That show was Hieroglyph. The midseason replacement was set to be a sexy tale during Ancient Egypt times and was picked up before the network even saw a pilot. According to Entertainment Weekly the first episode was shot, and producers talked to Fox about the others ones. It was then that the network decided not to move forward with it. Personally, I think they made the right choice because the show would’ve bombed. That era doesn’t do well on television.
Too bad Fox doesn’t have Almost Human to fill that airtime because they cancelled the fan favorite in place of this failed show that won’t even air.
Fox has decided to pull the very very very low rated shows Riot and I Wanna Marry Harry from their lineup effective immediately according to The Hollywood Reporter, and no one can blame them. Tuesday’s episode of Harry wasn’t even seen by a million people. That has to be the lowest a show has ever done on a weekday on one of the Big 4 networks ever. Which is kind of sad because I thought it was the series’ best episode yet. Now if you are like me, then you want to know what happens when the imposter tells then that he is not Harry. And you will be able to find out when Fox puts the remaining episodes on OnDemand, Hulu, Fox.com and Fox’s App starting tomorrow.
Now when it comes to Riot, it was anything but its title.
