Tonight at 9:30p ABC’s newest sitcom Mixology debuts and you will want to check it out. The first season of the show takes place over one night in a bar with 10 people trying to hook up.
Recently at the ABC TCA Winter Press Tour Day someone wanted to know, “Who is going to end up with who at the end of the night. Is it hard to do that knowing that if these people don’t get laid at the end of this, life will still go on, and there’s no stakes there? Like, how do you make that have stakes?”
Well the show’s star, Vanessa Lengies, responded to that question brilliantly by saying, “If people didn’t get laid, the world wouldn’t continue.”
I think we can all agree that her Words of Wizdumb can be used for more than just promoting the funny show.
If you are looking to have a super fun night tonight, then you will want to watch Super Fun Night on ABC at 9:30p.

It is that time of year to celebrate Christmas with the Hecks on ABC at 8p on The Middle, and this episode delivers like Santa on Christmas morning.
Mike (Neil Flynn) thinks it is going to be the perfect Christmas because Frankie’s (Patricia Heaton) parents aren’t coming this year, so he is really looking forward to spending it without the in-laws. Meanwhile Frankie is happy to have her son, Axl (Charlie McDermott), home all the way from college. Only problem is he would rather spend the time with his friends from high school. The two of them will try to work out a deal, but it will be tough negotiations. Talking about tough, Brick (Atticus Shaffer) gets a costly financial lesson tonight when he gives his mom the wrapping paper he was selling for school so he could get a gift. Frankie wants him to learn a lesson, so she makes him find a way to come up with the money to pay for those 20 rolls of wrapping expensive paper. Brick being Brick finds something else to sell to earn the money and then he has to find something to else to make up for that and so on. You just have to see what he is panhandling so he can make back that original $97 that is now so much more.
And then there is our sweet Sue (Eden Sher), Christmas was made for her but she was not made for Christmas. The happiest high schooler is handed some lemons and yet again she somehow makes lemonade as she makes laughs hysterically!
So tune in for a family Christmas episode that is unlike anything else on television and that is why The Middle is so enjoyable.
And you must watch all the way through for something that a lot of dad’s will now be trying with their sons that have grown up and moved out. It is the sweetest and most touching moment on television this season thus far. I hope that ABC posts that moment because it is something that every parent needs to use on their kid and I want to share it with all of you.
BTW I just had to share with you the greatest wrapping paper that I got with the screener.
If you are like me and love when people go crazy to decorate their houses for Christmas, then you are going to love The Great Christmas Light Fight that debuts on ABC tonight at 9p.
In each of the 5 episodes (1 airs tonight and 2 air the next and following Mondays), 4 families battle out to win the grand prize of $50,000. The families are based all over the country and they are showing us how magnificent their Christmas spirit truly is. Each family has different techniques and final products, but the one thing they all have in common is how beautiful their homes are when they turn them on. Well they are beautiful to us and really annoying to their neighbors.
One house tonight is synced to music, one is laid out over lots of land, one has snow and one is so bright you can see it from the sky.
Extreme Makover’s Michael C. Moloney has the tough task going to all of these houses to determine which is the most festive. It is not an easy job, but someone has to do it. His warmth makes this feel good competition show ever more enjoyable.
So tune in tonight and the next two Mondays for a show that will definitely brighten your day!
During the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s sitcoms had ‘very special episodes’ that tackled the big issues of the day like drugs, kidnapping and loss of virginity. Well tonight at 8p on ABC Last Man Standing is bringing that back to broadcast TV when they handle the topic of spanking.
When Bud (Robert Forster) admits that he spanked his great-grandson, Boyd (Flynn Morrison), for disobeying him, everyone in the family gets mad at him. Boyd’s parents, Kristin (Amanda Fuller) and Ryan (Jordan Masterson), don’t think that kids should be punished and they give their son sugar to get him to do what they want. Boyd’s grandparents, Mike (Tim Allen) and Vanessa (Nancy Travis), have their own opinions on the matter. So now the whole family is debating whether or not is OK to physically punish your kid when they disobey you.
It is an interesting topic that a lot of households ponder, and Last Man Standing handles it very well with the proper amount of humor. So tune in for what I hope is the official return of the ‘very special episode’ and also a really good episode that looks at both sides of the issue.
Yesterday during the AMAs Nathan Fillion posed with someone from the Awards show backstage. Well Sarah Silverman saw the opportunity to photobomb the moment and it is the most perfect thing she has ever done.
So the next time you think about photobombing anyone, try to top what Sarah did!
Once upon a Time there was an actor and an actress who were cast on a show and they were set to play a loving couple. Shortly after they got the parts as a married couple, they realized that there was something between them and they started to date. Then last month they decided to take the next step and get engaged. Now they have another announcement, their family of two is about to become three because People is reporting that Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas are going to have a baby together.
No other details are known at this time like when she is due and if her pregnancy will be written into the ABC show. I am sure all will be revealed before you can say Happily Ever After! Something the happy couple will be doing just like Snow White and Prince Charming.
There were rumors a few weeks ago that ABC was looking to resurrect the stupidly cancelled Body of Proof and fans like me got happy. Well today, we got some sad news from Dana Delany because she Tweeted that the show will not be making like a Zombie and coming back from the dead. So right now Dr Megan Hunt is doing an autopsy on her show and I am crying outside the morgue waiting to identify my loved drama.
Kerry Washington is reportedly pregnant with her first child according to Us Weekly. The actress, who married Nnamdi Asomugha, in June is said to be about 4 months along which means she is probably having a honeymoon baby!
She has yet to confirm the pregnancy, but in the promos she did for this week’s Saturday Night Live, she looks to be hiding something in that flowy dress.
Since she has yet to say if she is having a baby, no word if the pregnancy will be written into the ABC show. Hopefully they will and we won’t know the daddy is, which is the definition of Scandal especially if you are sleeping with the married President. She can get back with him for one night to make the baby, right?
Tonight at 8p The Middle turns 100 and a big reason why the family sitcom to this milestone is not only the writing, but also the amazing chemistry between the cast. On Saturday, I attended the party to celebrate their centennial episode and it was evident that not only do they enjoy what they do but also they enjoy who they are working with on The Middle.
On tonight’s episode the town of Orson is also celebrating turning 100 and Frankie (Patricia Heaton) and Mike (Neil Flynn) have the distinct honor of riding the main float which is a cow. The night before the parade, they have to guard the float and we find out how they wound up in Orson and not Chicago like their original plan. It is a sweet moment between the two and since this is The Middle, it won’t last.
They aren’t the only ones taking part in the festivities, Brick (Atticus Shaffer) thinks he has come up with the motto for the town’s next 100 years. It really is a good one, but is it the best one? That is up for the town to decide. Shaffer told me about one motto that didn’t make the show, but it was his personal favorite. One of the prop guys came up with, “Orson enjoy your dairy air.” It is much funnier when you read it aloud.
Axl (Charlie McDermott) has new idea to make money quickly at the parade. Will it work out better than his past ideas or will it go down in flames like something else on the show tonight?
Then there is Sue (Eden Sher), who is trying to enjoy the festivities as much as she can now that she knows her boyfriend has moved on. Will this finally be the one thing that gets her down? Who are we kidding, nothing can get our Sue Heck down and that is just how we like it!
The Middle is turning 100 because it’s that rare show that deserves to make it to this honor. The Hecks are you, they are me and they are everyone we know. That is why every week we find ourselves tuning in for it.
So what does turning 100 mean to the cast? It means something different to all of them, but they all agree that they love their jobs. For Patricia Heaton and Neil Flynn it means it’s their second sitcom in a row that has gotten to that magical number, and it is something they don’t take lightly. Heaton told me that going from Everybody Loves Raymond to The Middle, “I find it miraculous. I kind of want to turn around and see if anyone is going to take it away from me. It is sort of crazy that this happened. I am very grateful.” Flynn has this to say this about going from Scrubs into another hit, “I’m twice as lucky. I am fortunate to have it happen once, but twice.”
Now while they have been here before, for the three actors who play their kids this is the longest they have been on or at something. Charlie McDermott summed up that feeling with, “This is the largest thing I have ever done. I don’t think I’ve done a 100 of anything before this. So it is nice to spend that much time on something I enjoy a lot. It is really cool to be here.” His TV sister, Eden Sher, added, “It means that I am a lucky child. It means I am examine my life every day and I cry from gratitude.” As she answered the question to what it means to hit this milestone, you can tell she really is in awe of it all! Then her younger TV brother, Atticus Shaffer, said it perfectly when he told me, ” It took a long time to accomplish, but it’s been a lot of fun along the way.”
Aw Heck, if they can have fun along the way as they make The Middle, then we can have as much fun watching what they made. Something that is very easy for us viewers to do every Wednesday at 8p on ABC. The Middle is about the Heck family and in a way that is what they have become to us. But unlike our real family we get to shut them off after a half hour. Which is about as much time as we actually enjoy spending with our real families. Also unlike our real families, we get to laugh with them every week.
So here is to 100 more episodes of The Middle!!!
