Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs both Tweeted photos from their weekend, and it wasn’t a fun one for them. Max is suffering from sinuses, while her roommate, Caroline, banged up her knee while rock climbing. Ouch.
To see them when they were healthier, tune into 2 Broke Girls on CBS tonight at 8p.
BTW I didn’t post their pictures to show off their suffering, I posted them to show how beautiful both of them look without makeup. Isn’t it incredible how different they look fresh faces?
Kat Dennings Instragrammed this photo of her TV boss, Matthew Moy, with some fake kitties, and I think this photo is purrfect for this cold Monday morning. Seriously, doesn’t this picture just bring a smile to your face. Just like 2 Broke Girls does every Monday at 8p on CBS.
CBS announced today that they have picked up three of its freshman dramas for next season. Those three shows are Scorpion, NCIS: NoLA and Madame Secretary. Still awaiting their fate is Stalker and The McCarthys. Translation, even though the networks says they are contenders, I think we can all assume that they are done.
On that note, when I was kid, I learned that assume means “you don’t want to make an A$$ out of U and Me” from the original The Odd Couple television series. Over the weekend, I watched the remake with Thomas Lennon and Matthew Perry, and I would be surprised if it wasn’t picked up for a second season. When it comes to CSI: Cyber and Battle Creek, I would be surprised if they are back for a round 2. Cyber is shockingly so boring for an interesting topic, but except for Scorpion, I find all of CBS’s procedurals to be that way. Battle Creek is unlike anything else on CBS, and that is not a good thing. Their viewers like their dramas and they like that they are all the same. I know Person of Interest, Madame Secretary and The Good Wife are not like the other shows on the network, and how are those shows doing in the ratings? They get ABC numbers. Good for ABC, bad for CBS numbers.
Tonight at 10p on CBS, Blue Bloods celebrates its 100th episode.
Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) and his wife, Linda (Amy Carlson), are at the bank trying to refinance their loan, when it is suddenly held-up. There are too many bank robbers and Danny can’t do anything about them until they leave. Once they are gone, his search for them begins. What he doesn’t know is why they did it. When he finds out the reason, he has a tough decision to make. Turn them in or help them out?
Meanwhile over at One Police Plaza, Commissioner Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) and his PIO, Garrett (Gregory Jbara), finally have it out. Will their fight be the end all of their working relationship?
You just have to tune in to find out. That and for an episode that proves that even though the police procedural is turning 100, it gets better with time.
I am not saying this because I am Blockhead, but I sincerely think that Donnie Wahlberg needs more recognition for his brilliant work on the show. Every week he impresses me with how well he does with whatever the writers give him to do. We knew he could sing, and Blue Bloods truly proves he can act too.
Jonny Lee Miller was photographed with an anaconda wrapped around him, so is he going to show that Eaten Alive guy how it’s done? We will just have to tune into his show Elementary to find out because this photo is from the set of the CBS show.
But let’s say if he was to do that Discovery show, I don’t think it would be the scariest thing he has ever done. After all, he was married to Angelina Jolie for a short time. Sorry it is a slow day and that was a bad joke.
CBS has finally scheduled all of their new shows, but they sacrificed some of their other new shows to do.
On February 19th, Two and a Half Men ends it successful run with a one hour series finale at 9p and The Odd Couple makes it debut at 8:30p. Then the following week CBS’s new Thursday lineup starts with The Big Bang Theory followed by Matthew Perry playing Oscar Madison followed by a TBBT repeat and finally conclude the comedy part of the evening with the unfunny Mom. So in other words, they cancelled The Millers and The McCarthys (not officially cancelled) for a repeat of TBBT. I don’t get that but then again, I liked the comedies with the families that last names start with a M.
Those are the comedy changes, there are also some drama changes coming too. On March 1st, Battle Creek takes over for CSI who had their episode order cut. Then on Match 4th, Stalker will be replaced by CSI: Cyber. I was honestly surprised that CBS ordered more episodes from Stalker and sounds like they realized their mistake.
It will be interesting to see how these three new shows do. I am looking forward to The Odd Couple because I really like Matthew Perry and I’m a little weirded out how much Thomas Lennon reminds me of Tony Randall. I think the casting is great and hopefully the episodes will be too. Hopefully, it will do well because it will be nice for one of their new sitcoms make it to a second season.
Beth Behrs and Matthew Moy are so thankful they are leaving for Thanksgiving break that the duo from 2 Broke Girls decided to do a dance! Let’s just say their happy dance is something I am thankful for because it is totally original. I mean how else would you describe what they were doing?
Tonight at 8p on Fox’s Gotham someone is after Cat and Bruce Wayne takes off with her. Now the two of them are on the run. Alfred will do anything to get his master back, even team up with Harvey Bullock. You will get to see how bada$$ Alfred truly is and the start of our little boy becoming a Batman.
Penguin tells Falcone that there is a leak in his organization and he will do anything to find who it is?
And by the end of the episode someone will be fired from their job. Think you know who?
Then at 9p but on The CW Jane the Virgin spends the night with Rafael. Her mother spends the night with her father, but they are on a double date with other people.
Meanwhile, Jane finds out that her day job as a teacher is using her immaculate conception for their own needs. How will she feel when she finds out?
Then, like Gotham, someone will be fired by the end of the episode. Who will get the ax? And did I mention there is a shocking kiss in this episode? Whose lips will lock???
Lastly at 9p over at CBS the Scorpion team are sent to Bosnia to recover its stealth technology from a downed US airplane before the wrong people get their hands on it. This is their toughest assignment yet because they are being shot at in a country that is unfamiliar to them. To make matters worse, half the team gets separated from them. Will they make it out alive? You just have to tune in to find out.
The Millers finally got some much needed press, but sadly it was the news that CBS shockingly cancelled the sitcom. Although ratings haven’t been stellar for the funny show, I don’t think they warranted the show’s cancellation.
I loved this show, and I found that it made me laugh harder than the other CBS comedies. So I am going to miss it.
I don’t get why it didn’t catch on and the depressing Mom has. I guess people prefer to be depressed when they watch a comedy instead of happy. Which is sad.
Tonight at 9:30p on CBS’s The McCarthys Ronnie (Tyler Ritter) tells his mom (Laurie Metcalf) that he can’t watch The Good Wife with her because he needs to go over basketball plays with his dad (Jack McGee). Let’s just say, she doesn’t take to him skipping out her too well and the rest of the family suffers because of it. Their suffering is our reward just like this sitcom about a typical Boston family.
The Good Wife has been an intricate part of the show, just like basketball, so does the show’s creator, Brian Gallivan, love the legal drama as much as the character he created about himself does? He told me on a conference call, “I’m obsessed with it, and my mother is too.” Sadly because they are on different coasts and timezones, they don’t get to watch as he puts it, “It’s my favorite show on television, maybe even above the McCarthys.” At that point Tyler Ritter, who plays him, was not that happy about his boss’ confession and you can’t blame him. Although he quickly got over it and understood why he feels that way. You know, since in a way he needs to get in to Brian’s brain in order to do his job, so he knows what he is thinking.
As I mentioned the show is based on Gallivan’s family, but how much of it is like his real family. He said, “It is based on my life, it’s loosely inspired by my family. They require me to say that. Jokingly, I think, I don’t know. It can be tough. And you know, a lot of the basics are true.” So what are those basics? He explained, “I’m sort of the one gay son, I actually have more siblings, I have three brothers and two sisters in real life, so the characters are sort of a mixture of qualities and quirks from my real siblings scattered about. And my dad was a very successful high school basketball coach in Boston, and three of my siblings coach basketball, and I didn’t.”
How do they feel about the show now that it is airing their third episode tonight? He shared with us, “They love it. They’re so excited and they’re, they love Tyler, they think he’s great and they love everybody.” Then he concluded their reaction by saying, “So they’re having a blast. And of course, making it somehow connected to basketball even when it doesn’t.”
And here’s a basketball reference from me, The McCarthy’s a slam dunk. So make sure to watch it tonight and every Thursday at 9:30p on CBS.
