Chasing Life is back on ABC Family tonight at 9p for a special Christmas episode. The episode picks up where the midseason finale left off, and we find out if Leo (Scott Michael Foster) got the surgery to save his life. We also get to see how April (Italia Ricci) is doing now that she is getting the Chemotherapy. The treatment is causing her to lose her hair and she decides to shave it all off before it falls out on his own.
Which is a good thing because now that her father’s parents (Marion Ross and Ed Asner) have come to visit, she and the rest of the family are ready to pull their hair out.
Will they be able to survive her grandparents visit? Will April survive her chemotherapy? Will Leo survive his surgery? You just have to tune in for another incredible episode of Chasing Life to find out.
Then at 10p on ABC the Forever, the fall finale picks up where last week’s episode left off. Henry (Ioan Gruffudd) has gotten into the cab driving by his stalker, so will he finally find out who he is? Not at first because the mystery man has other plans for him. One of those plans is framing the Medical Examiner for murder. Will his stalker succeed? Will Henry die tonight?
You don’t want to miss this thrilling episode full of many twists and a surprise ending you will never see coming.
ABC announced today that they asked Cristela for the back 9 episodes. The sitcom has been doing OK on Friday nights, and actually is a good fit with Last Man Standing.
The show’s comedy felt a little forced when it first started, but it has really found its voice. I can’t wait to see what else they bring us by the end of the season.
Steve Harvey asked Anthony, “You never want to shake hands with someone right after they do what?” The 16 year old excitingly told the Family Feud host, “Masturbate!” His proud family gave him high fives, hugs and told him good answer as the audience stood up to show how thrilled they were with the answer.
So was his good answer on the board? Shockingly, no. What’s up or should I say down with that? I know I wouldn’t want to shake hands with someone who just finished shaking himself. Would you?
The good news is that ABC picked up Forever for a full season, the bad news is that they are not ordering the back nine episodes from Selfie.
Forever is a great procedural that is made even better due to the sweet chemistry between Judd Hirsch and his TV dad, Ioan Gruffudd. Out of all the new cop dramas this one is by far the best.
When it comes to Selfie, the pilot was OK. But every episode after that has proven to be precious gems. In fact, their episode Nuggets of Wisdom is still the best 30 minutes of television this season so far. I really hope this darling show finds another network to air on because it is so deserving. I also wish more people found it when it was on, but it had tough competition from the get go. Selfie was up against the #1 drama NCIS, the #1 reality show The Voice and The CW’s #1 show The Flash, it never really had a chance. I wish ABC would’ve given it more of one and waited to pair it with the cute family comedy Fresh Off the Boat.
When it comes to cast (especially Da’Vine Joy Randolph), I really hope that they all wind up on a new show soon. That is if this one doesn’t find a new home to air their new episodes. Someone please pick up Selfie, please please please!
Tonight at 8p, we get not one but two very enjoyable episodes of Selfie to enjoy on ABC!
On the first episode, Eliza (Karen Gillan) and Henry (John Cho) go on their first trip together. Not a romantic one, but to their boss’ (David Harewood) estate in Santa Barbara right next to Oprah Winfrey’s compound. Henry is beyond excited for this weekend retreat because he is convinced he is going to there to a get a promotion. But when Eliza gets an invite too, he is convinced she is his +1. Something she doesn’t take too kindly to. So why was she invited? And what havoc will she bring to the Saperstein’s residence? Will she be the only one bringing it on while she is there or will Henry finally let loose?
Then at 8:30p, Eliza decides she want to get the very uptight Henry laid. She gets Charmonique (Da’Vine Joy Randolph) to help her out, a task that proves a lot harder than they thought. Will they be able to get him something something, or will he remain frustrated?
You MUST tune in for these delightful episodes to find out and to keep this sweet sweet show alive. Selfie is the best new show that ABC gave us in the fall, so let’s keep it going until to the spring, and the next fall and so on.
Boo! ABC is all Halloween, all the time tonight and you don’t want to miss a single spooky episode!
At 8p, the words you never thought you would hear, you are going to hear on The Middle. Brick (Atticus Shaffer) decides he doesn’t want to go Trick or Treating because he has a date with a living girl! How will that go? Just as you would expect.
But the episode isn’t only about him, Axl has a paper due and he hasn’t even started it. So his parents (Patricia Heaton and Neil Flynn) tell him to go to a place called the library. A place he is not familiar with and he doesn’t even know where this strange building is. Once he finds it, he finds the perfect place to work on his paper. Only problem is he spent too much time on it and now he is locked in there. How will he do spending his first night alone? Let’s just say Charlie McDermott gives his best performance yet. There are several moments where you will be laughing so hard that you will have candy corn coming out of your nose.
Then at 8:30p, Pops (George Segal) moves in with The Goldbergs. Murray (Jeff Garlin) doesn’t want it, but like what he says matters to Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey). Pops moving in, has a deep impact on the relationship between Adam (Sean Giambrone) and his mom. Something that they are still dealing with to this day.
Then there is Barry (Troy Gentile) who saves his sister, Erica (Hayley Orrantia)from eating Pop Rocks and drinking soda at the same time. Now, she owes him for saving her life and you’ll never believe what he wants. Will he get it?
At 9p, it is time for another Halloween episode of Modern Family and it is Awesomeland!
Phil (Ty Burrell) wants to decorate the house like it is Awesomeland; but when Claire (Julie Bowen) finds out her new neighbors are having a scariest house contest, she redecorates. Phil is not happy about it.
Lily (Aubrey Anderson-Emmons) is mad that Cam (Eric Stonestreet) shows up in the wrong costume to her school and then ditches her school’s parade to go to work. Will she forgive her dad?
And did I mention Jay’s (Ed O’Neill) costume includes hair! That is enough reason to tune in.
Finally, ABC saved the best for last with Black-ish. Dre (Anthony Anderson) loves to prank his family, but this year they have had enough. He can’t handle his kids turning away from his pranking ways and it only gets worse for him when they tell him they won’t dress up in a family costume. Will he finally get the Halloween he wants or is his holiday ruined?
You just have to tune in for four great spooktacular episodes to fond out!
The Great Halloween Fright Fight tricks its way on to ABC tonight at 8p and you don’t want to miss this treat.
If you are like me, then you love how people decorate their houses Halloween. Well, ABC found six families throughout the US who take decorating their homes to a whole new level. One family built a facade outside of their house that looks like the real deal and another family took over several acres of land at a guy’s farm to create their nightmare house. One place is made to look like a pirate ship and another one is taken over by spiders. Finally, the last house took a lot of guts to make, and I do mean a lot of guts. Only one house can be the winner of the $50,000 prize, but if it were up to me they would all win.
Even though Halloween is supposed to be scary, this show leaves with you a smile on your face because it is so positive. That is largely because the judges, Michael Moloney and Sabrina Soto, are like big children as they tour the Halloween horror houses, especially when they see the terrifying clowns. There are clowns, lots and lots of frightening clowns.
I truly wish that there was more than one episode for this show because I would love to see even more haunting houses than the ones we see tonight. Maybe next they will expand this show into even more episodes.
The first new show of the season to be pulled off the air is ABC’s Manhattan Love Story according to Entertainment Weekly. The RomCom sitcom had a sweet first episode, but then just fell a little flat.
I think the problem with this show is there didn’t seem to be much chemistry between Analeigh Tipton and Jake McDorman. There was just something that didn’t connect between them and I think because of that people didn’t connect with the show.
My biggest problem with is my own issue, I couldn’t stand McDorman’s beard. I know that sounds stupid; but his blonde beard was so thin, I couldn’t tell if he had one or not. So I would watch the episode looking for it. It’s my thing, but I am sure there were other people who were turned off by something so frivolous.
I will say something positive, I think that Tipton is star in the making. She will go far because she is like a young Meg Ryan, cute and so likeable.
So, what will ABC be replacing MLS with? Next week they are airing The Great Halloween Fright Fight and the following week they will double up on Selfie, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite shows on television.
ABC has a few sitcoms in the wings and I can’t wait for you guys to see the warm and fuzzy Fresh Off the Boat and the brilliant Galavant. Both shows are great additions to ABC’s lineup that has already proven to have gotten a lot of things right this season.
Finally, the reason why I am saying this is the first show to be pulled off the air because technically the unfunny Mulaney was the first shirt cancelled. Fox halted production on the show permanently last week. Why they are still airing that piece of smelly crap is beyond me.
ABC announced today that they want more episodes from seven of their shows according to Variety. All of the Wednesday night comedies, The Middle, The Goldbergs, Modern Family and blask-ish, will all now be doing 24 episodes instead of 22 as will Grey’s Anatomy. Castle will be doing 23 and Resurrection is now filming 14 episodes instead of 13.
Now all ABC has to do is ask for more 9 more episodes from Forever and Selfie and I will be very happy with them.
The big story yesterday was how different Renee Zellweger looks and Selfie already had a joke about it. That’s right, ABC’s best new fall comedy, predicted what the joke of the day was going to be weeks before anyone else did.
Eliza (Karen Gillan) went over to Charmonique’s (Da’Vine Joy Randolph) house to help her get ready for her high school reunion, and the phone addict had some sage advice for her friend who was thinking of looking radically different for the big event. She said, “I understand that instinct. But when you completely reinvent your look, you run the risk of people not knowing who the hell you are, i.e. Renee Zellweger, who still looks good.” Then Charmonique added, “But doesn’t look a damn thing like Miss Renee Zellweger. I see what you mean.”
Who knew the writers of this genius show were psychic. We knew they had their finger on the social media pulse, but who knew they would know what the big story of the day would be before even the day knew what it was going to be? Kind of Nostradamusy.
And that, is why, you need to be watching this show, so that you know what is going to happen before it even happens. Well after, but you know what I mean.
Seriously, you should be watching this sitcom because it is sweet, funny and so relatable. The Voice is been there, seen that, same with NCIS, so why not try something new and exciting like Selfie on Tuesdays at 8p. I promise you will love it as much as Eliza Dooley loves herself.
And talking about loving herself, People had a face to face chat with Renee Zellweger. To read what she said, then click here!
