Nick Jonas might’ve have gotten rid of his squeaky clean Disney image, but he’s still clean enough to sing a song on Sesame Street Street. The youngest Jonas Brother was joined by Cookie Monster, Bert and The Count as they sang about different shapes. For kids it’s all about pentagons and octagons, but for us adults it could be him singing about women’s bodies. Or am I just a sick person and I am the only one who thought that?
Somewhere Stana Katic is doing a happy dance! Just weeks after she was fired from Castle, ABC cancelled the show!
My theory is ABC was paying attention to the online chatter about people despising the idea of the show going on without Beckett, and realized it wasn’t worth bringing it back. That and the pitch for next season must’ve been awful. I mean they just renewed the contracts of Nathan Fillion, Jon Huertas and Seamus Dever in the last few days, so they were seriously thinking of bringing it back. But at the last minute they said no to renewing one of their highest rated scripted shows. Something had to happen to make them change their minds so suddenly.
So I guess you can say the show is called Castle, but it can’t just go on with just Fillion. Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Am I sad to see this show go? Not at all. The last few seasons have been horrible with this one being the worst by far. Thus, I am happy to say goodbye to this procedural this Monday night.
UPDATE: ABC also cancelled the very disappointing The Muppets. Synergy couldn’t save the comedy and I am happy it didn’t. It was just The Muppets without any heart. Without that they were destroying everything they were built on. So good riddance. That and how dare they break up Kermit and Miss Piggy.
UPDATE 2: TV Line is reporting that Castle filed an alternate ending in case it got cancelled.
UPDATE 3: The fat lady sang because Galavant was cancelled. I loved that show. Even though I knew it was going to get cancelled, it still breaks my heart it won’t be back.
UPDATE: ABC picked up Dr Ken for a second season. This show didn’t have the best pilot, but every episode since then has been really funny. They learned how to write for the full cast and they all deliver brilliantly.
Gwen Stefani is going to be on Sesame Street and she sings a called Be a Good Friend with the friendly neighbors. No Doubt, I think, there are a few people who might disagree about her singing a song like that? But I am pretty sure we don’t speak about it, right?
Tonight at 8p on ABC, it is time for the one hour season finale of The Muppets. Miss Piggy breaks her leg singing Single Ladies, and needs to surgery immediately to correct the problem. When the network brass say that they will do the show without her, Kermit convinces them to do it from the hospital. When the show is over and as she’s being rolled into the operating room, Kermit realizes his true feelings for Miss Piggy and declares that he loves her. And that is where the first episode ends.
Is this declaration too little, too late? We will find out on May, but as of now I say yes. Although, tonight’s first episode was one of the better ones during the show’s first season.
Then at 10p over on FX, it is time for the lawyers to debate about Mark Furhman (Steven Pasquale) taking the stand on American Crime Story: The People v. OJ Simpson.
Chris Darden (Sterling K. Brown) and Johnnie Cochran (Courtney B. Vance) battle it out over the N-word inside and outside of the courtroom. Their interactions are so intense, powerful and emotional, I would be surprised if Brown and Vance are not nominated for an Emmy for their performances on tonight’s episode alone. There is one line that is perfection tonight, and you will know what it is when it is said. You will press pause and then rewind to be like oh hell no!
American Crime Story: The People v. OJ Simpson has been excellent so far and tonight’s episode is by far the best!
Remember when you were a kid and you would sing Mahna Mahna from The Muppets? Well be prepared to have your world rocked because yesterday on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the ABC late night host had the Mexican Rock band Maná sing the song.
Animal would totally approve and so will you. You will also have the song stuck in your head all day, do do-do do.
Jimmy Fallon has secretly photobombed several tourist photos with other celebrities like Jon Hamm, but yesterday he changed it up on The Tonight Show. Instead of tourists, he had kids; and instead of human celebrities, he used some of Sesame Street’s biggest names. What we got is some of the most awwwdorable photobombs you will ever see. Not only that, the kids’ reactions were priceless when they realized that Elmo and Big Bird were behind them! Too cute!
Tracee Ellis Ross, who stars on Blackish with a B, has a lesson for the fans of Sesame Street. While lying in her Bed under her Blanket in the Bedroom, she let the viewers know that a lot of words in the boudoir start with the letter B. Sometimes even things you don’t normally find there also begin with the second letter in the alphabet. For example Beaver, Bear and Big Bird.
Now we know what type of changes we are going to see on HBO, people in bed with more than one puppet. It’s like Real Sex but earlier in the day! Sorry, had to go there!
The good news is that ABC asked The Muppets for 3 more episodes, the bad news is that they only asked The Muppets for 3 more episodes. While they are saying this is a full season, I don’t think it is. It is 6 episodes short of a typical full season, so I would just say it is just additional episodes.
Is the news a surprise? Not really, since the adult version didn’t really connect with viewers who were expecting The Muppets they loved. Even I have had problems loving the show. I don’t have a problem with a more mature version of the beloved kids show, but they took away why we love them. They just made them miserable people who hate each other and have stupid problems. There is nothing to love about them. Miss Piggy is a bitch, Kermit is a whiny wimp, Fozzie is depressing and so on. Hopefully with the remaining episodes that they have, they will make the characters more lovable. Make them more like The Muppets we knew and less bitter.
What do they have to be bitter about? And what does Bill Prady have to be so bitter about? He has the #1 sitcom on television and his dream show, his shows should reflect that. Instead both The Big Bang Theory and this show have become comedies full of bitterness. Comedy is supposed to be funny not depressing. That’s what dramas are for.
One last note, now that it looks like that The Muppets won’t be back for season 2, let’s get Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog back together again. That is the biggest reason why the show failed. You can’t break up one of America’s favorite couples and expect to succeed. Right?
What do you think of the new Muppets?
Last week, Justin Bieber released his song called Sorry. Sorry but not sorry to him, but Miss Piggy does a better song with Sorry in the title. Tonight on The Muppets, she debuted her tune I’m Sorry when she sang it to Reese Witherspoon and I think the Beebs should sing her song instead of his own.
Now, when it comes to Witherspoon, how far the mighty has fallen. First she did Best Time Ever and now she is doing The Muppets, so you have to wonder how long until she does a cheesy sitcom. Probably, next season.
Tonight at 8p on ABC, The Muppets have a night out. When Miss Piggy finds out the staff of Up Late are going out without her after the show, she makes Kermit the Frog have them ask her to join them. She says she doesn’t want to go, she just wants to be asked. So when they ask her, she says yes. Now, they are stuck doing Karaoke with her. Turns out she is a lot of fun. Too much fun. She tells them they don’t have to be at work until the afternoon and now that night’s show is in jeopardy. Will Kermit be able to save that night’s show or will it be a disaster?
He isn’t the only one having a bad day, Fozzie the Bear accidentally hits one of the audience members with a T-shirt from a T-shirt gun. When the audience member is taken to the hospital, Fozzie is wrecked with guilt and can’t go on.
What will happen to Up Late tonight? You will have to tune in to find out.
Then at 8:30p over at Fox, The Grinder is all about coming forward with the truth. When Stewart (Fred Savage) and his wife Debbie (Mary Elizabeth Ellis) go to watch Ray Donovan, they find out that someone erased it from the DVR. Immediately they blame the kids (Hana Hayes and Connor Kalopsis) for erasing it, but both of them deny it.
All of this reminds Stewart of the time when he was a teenager and he was accused of breaking a window that he knows Dean (Rob Lowe) broke, but Dean still denies it even after all of these years.
So for the rest of the episode, it is who said game. And by then end of it, you will know who did what. Think you know who did what? You could be wrong, so tune in to find out.
Then at 10p over on NBC, Chicago Fire is back. The episode picks up where the season finale left off. Casey (Jesse Spencer) is missing and no one knows where he is. Now, they are looking for him. Will they find him before it is too late?
Besides dealing with that. They get a new recruit (Steven McQueen), someone gets demoted, they tackle some of their toughest calls and someone will quit.
It is a lot to deal with in an hour, but that is why this show is on fire.
