Rookie Blue is back on duty! |
| June 19th, 2014 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]
Rookie Blue is back on ABC tonight at 9p with two episodes and you don’t want to miss this police drama.
The show picks up after almost immediately after the season finale and Sam Swarek (Ben Bass) is being wheeled into the operating room after being shot. Chloe (Priscilla Faia) meanwhile is out of surgery and she is recovering with her husband by her side. Dov (Missy Peregrym) and Andy (Gregory Smith) are told to take a break from the hospital and they go to eat the 24 hour diner nearby. While they are there in plain clothes, the place is robbed and the robbers hold them hostage not knowing they are cops. When something goes wrong, their lives are put in jeopardy. Will they make out of there alive and uninjured?
Then at 10p, spoiler they do, because Andy becomes a TO to a new Rookie. He is over excited about his first day on the beat and because of that he risks his life and Andy’s. Will he learn his lesson or will he quit the force after just one day?
You just have to tune into a drama that gets more arresting each season.
Hey boys, Kesha wants to see your Rising Star on the wall! |
| June 18th, 2014 under ABC, Jimmy Kimmel, Josh Groban. [ Comments: none ]
Yesterday on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Rising Star‘s host Josh Groban and experts Ludacris, Brad Paisley and Kesha were on the ABC late night show to talk about their singing competition that debuts on Sunday night. Since the eliminations are live, there has been some confusion how it will all work. So they explained it on the show and Kesha might’ve gotten them in trouble. As she was describing that the audience’s Selfies will appear on the wall, she said that they could take interesting photos. Kimmel made the mistake of asking her what she meant. She responded by saying, “I just, I can’t wait to see a d!ck pic on that wall!” She is not alone because I wouldn’t mind that all. The ABC censors might, but not me. In fact I am going to use a picture of my pussy as a Selfie when I vote on the show. And before your stars get rising, I am referring to my cat!
Seriously, seeing how the three experts and the host interacted with each other on JKL makes me want to watch Rising Star even more. How excited are you for this show?
Is Jon Lovitz cold in the city as Billy Idol? |
| June 3rd, 2014 under ABC, Billy Idol. [ Comments: none ]
This Saturday at 9p, Jon Lovitz is going to perform as Billy Idol on ABC’s Sing Your Face Off and do you think he is on the Mony, Mony with his impersonation? I am sure the real rocker will let out a Rebel Yell when he watches the performance and wishes he had a face without eyes.
Now I am basing this review on just this photo, who knows he might be the best Billy Idol impersonator we have ever seen. We will just have to tune in to find out.
I am gaga over Sing Your Face Off |
| June 2nd, 2014 under ABC, Lisa Rinna. [ Comments: none ]
On Saturday night, ABC decided to finally air the much delayed Sing Your Face Off and I don’t know why they held this show until now and bury it on a Saturday during the summer. I bet you a penny if they aired it on a weekday during the regular season this show would be huge. It is cheesy and because of that is wonderful!
Each week 5 celebrities dress up as a famous singer and sing like the person they are imitating. So picture Jon Lovitz as Elton John or Lisa Rinna as Britney Spears or better yet Sebastian Bach as Lady Gaga. That’s right the Skid Row singer had a Bad Romance with Gaga! Not only does he have to sing and dance like her, but he also had to wear those heels. How he didn’t fall in them, I just don’t know. But Lisa Rinna can’t say the same thing because when she sat on judge Darryl Hammond’s lap as Britney, the two fell off of the chair and landed on the floor. Something he didn’t mind.
Another plus about this wild and wacky reality show, is John Barrowman is a great host and interacts perfectly with the judges and the celebrities.
I hope more people find this show on ABC this summer, so they will realize their mistake and bring it back in the winter. I’d love to see more celebrities try to do their best Tina Turner or Lionel Richie.
And you don’t want to miss the show this Saturday when Rinna does Katy Perry, Sebastian is Billy Idol and Lovitz gets high as Willie Nelson. Seriously, the show is just that crazy!
What wasn’t shown in the above clip, is judge RuPual teaches Bach how to sashay, and the rocker actually had a rockin’ walk. But as good as Ru and Bach’s walks were, the Arrow star has the best one of them all. So if you want to see it, make sure to watch it on ABC.com. the WatchABC App or on OnDemand. I promise you will laugh your a$$ off when you watch the first 2 episodes. And don’t forget to watch it Saturdays at 9p on ABC.
Hey The Hecks, It’s The Middle’s season finale, where you gonna go? |
| May 21st, 2014 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]
Tonight at 8p on ABC’s The Middle, The Hecks are leaving Indiana and traveling to Disney World in Orlando for their 1 hour season finale. Since it’s The Hecks they are not going to fly, instead they are going to spend two days in the car together. So imagine what that is going to be like for them with all 5 of them trapped in an automobile for 2 whole days. Especially since they are going out of their way to stop off in North Carolina, so Brick can meet his girlfriend. That’s right Brick (Atticus Shaffer) has a girlfriend, (and he finally uses his Whoop properly) and wait until Frankie (Patricia Heaton) and Mike (Neil Flynn) meet her parents. It goes as bad as you think it would.
Now since it is a long drive, Axl (Charlie McDermott) will take some of the load off of his parents and sit behind the wheel for a bit. So when Sue (Eden Sher) hears this, she asks if she can drive for a part of it too and they make the mistake of her letting her do that. Will they ever get to Disney World?
Well, of course they do, and once they get there, they find out their tickets are for Disneyland in California, not Disney World in Orlando. Will they be able to get in to the wrong park?
You just have to tune into this endearing season finale to find out. There are so many sweet moments in this episode, you will want to hug it as hard as you can.
Will Josh Groban and Brad Paisley come to blows again on Rising Star? |
| May 16th, 2014 under ABC, Josh Groban. [ Comments: none ]
Last month Josh Groban and Brad Paisley appeared on the cancelled-to-soon-sitcom The Crazy Ones and next month they will reunite on ABC’s reality show Rising Star. Unlike on the TCO where Groban was a contestant on a singing competition that Paisley was judging on, Josh is hosting this one. But just like TCO, Brad is judging the one that debuts on June 22nd. Funny how a TV show becomes a reality…show.
The Country singer will not be alone at the judges’ table, he will be joined by Kesha and Ludacris. And with those names, they already have better panelists than American Idol. And since I am big fan of Groban’s humor, I will say they also have a better host. Sorry, Ryan Seacrest.
So what is Rising Star? Here’s the description from an ABC press release:
ABC’s new reality series “Rising Star” completely reinvents the traditional singing competition as–for the first time ever–the audience has the final say in real time. The show follows a group of aspiring singers as they audition in live performances. During the performances, viewers vote via an App in real time to determine if the singer will advance in the competition. If the voting reaches a certain threshold, the performer moves on, and the performer can see how the voting is going during the performance, so the feedback is immediate and dramatic.
That should be interesting. That is if us West Coasters don’t get screwed in the deal!
The Hecks go to Disney World on The Middle and Nashville goes to hell! |

Tonight at 8p on ABC’s The Middle, The Hecks are leaving Indiana and traveling to Disney World in Orlando. They are not going to fly, instead they are going to spend two days in the car together. So imagine what that is going to be like with the 5 of them trapped in an automobile for 2 days. Especially since they are going out of their way to stop off in North Caroline, so Brick can meet his girlfriend.

When Sue (Eden Sher) hears this, she asks if she can drive for part of it and they make the mistake of her letting her do that. Will they ever get to Disney World? You just have to tune in to this extremely endearing episode to find out.
And make sure to watch it all the way until the end of this first parter for a classic cliffhanger, you will never see coming. It will make you laugh because it is that original.
Then at 10p, it is time for Nashville to end its season and goes out like a country song.
Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) wants to be released from her contract because Jeff Ford (Oliver Hudson) is threatening to tell Avery they slept together unless she signs with him. But when Avery (Jonathan Jackson) finds out about it from a different source, how will he react to the news? Let’s just say he gives an Emmy winning performance.
Also on tonight’s season finale someone gets engaged, someone reveals a shocking secret to their lover while another person tells the person they are in love with how they feel about them.
You don’t want to miss each shocking moment that is more shocking than the one that airs before it. And the reveals don’t stop coming until the credits roll.
The Goldbergs throw the party of the year and Trophy Wife breaks your heart! |
| May 13th, 2014 under ABC, The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]
Tonight at 9p it is time for The Goldbergs season, and I don’t want wait a few months until we get a new episode because the sitcom has proven just how special it is.
Tonight’s season finale is Murray-centric (Jeff Garlin) and we learn more about the patriarch of the family. Turns out there is more to the dad than just sitting in the chair in his underwear watching TV. Back in high school, he held the record for most free throws in a row and up until now no one has broken it. Since someone did, he is invited back to his old haunt to be honored during the game and a banquet afterwards. He doesn’t want to go, but Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) forces him to go. Something he is happy about when everyone chants his name as he walks into the gym. About time he had this glorious moment on this show!
So while Murray’s being honored, the Goldberg kids are left alone. Barry (Troy Gentile), is not the cool kid like his dad. He realizes he can make a name for himself if he throws the party of the year while his parents away. Sadly, no one shows up until Erica (Hayley Orrantia) makes a phone call and everyone shows up. It’s the party that Barry always wanted, but does anyone knows he’s the man behind it?
When Bev and Murray come early, it looks the party is over. But is it? Will Barry have that epic moment? All I will say, is The Goldbergs uses Bon Jovi’s Livin’ On a Prayer, the way it was meant to be used. You will be screaming along as soon as it comes on.
So what music what we might hear next year? Over the weekend, I was Tweeting with, the show’s creator, Adam F Goldberg, and he hinted that the second season renewal means he will finally get to pay tribute to New Kids in the Block. But The Goldbergs isn’t only about music, it also about movies as we saw the show pay its respect to films like The Goonies and Return of the Jedi. What movie is left for him to honor? “Shall we play a game?” Yep, we might get to see War Games since it came out in ’80something.
Now that is all about what might happen next season, but here’s a little tidbit about tonight’s episode. Barry’s party turns into a sweater one. I know it isn’t a thing, but tonight it is! And the real Beverly Goldberg’s sweaters were used in the making of this episode. So keep your eye out for them! And a great episode with a sweet monologue from the little Adam (Sean Giambrone) at the end!
Then at 9:30p we get one final episode of Trophy Wife and you are going to hate ABC even more for cancelling this show.
It is Mother’s Day and Diane (Marcia Gay Harden) and Jackie (Michaela Watkins) are letting Kate (Malin Åkerman) take care of their kids for the day. Making Kate feel special until she realizes that Pete (Bradley Whitford) ex-wives lied to her so that they can have a kids’ free day. Now she is determined to find them. What will happen when she does?
Then there is Pete, who gets the lead of one of the worst cases his firm has ever handled. He has to make a company that caused an oil spill in the ocean look good. But the pressure gets to him and he is hospitalized.
So now all the wives and his cute kids are rushing to be by his side. What will happen when they all get together?
It is not as much about them as it is for us as our hearts break that this touching show will not be back for a second season. But at least we had this one.
ABC’s new fall schedule is… |
| May 13th, 2014 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]
ABC announced their fall schedule and I think they have a really strong one. Monday remains the same which is fine the way it is. Tuesdays is starting with two new comedies and SHIELD is moving to 9p, which is a better timeslot for the action show. Then there Wednesdays is the new Must See TV night because they have 3 established family comedies, The Middle, The Goldbergs and Modern Family, that are the best on TV, followed by one, Black-ish, with a lot of a potential at 9:30p. Thursday is all Shonda Rimes, all the time. Followed by Friday that is pretty much the same. Finally Sunday remains unchanged from the spring, so if it isn’t broke don’t fix it.
I think ABC is going to come back next season with this lineup!

MONDAY: 8:00 p.m. “Dancing with the Stars”
10:00 p.m. “Castle”
