Chris Pratt might’ve played a baseball played on the big screen, but that doesn’t mean he knows how to play the game. This was evident on Wednesday when he threw the first pitch at the Chicago Cubs game. He threw a cutter that was just out of the catcher’s reach.
But as bad as it was, it was still better than whatever 50 Cent did earlier in the season.
But then again it is Chris Pratt, even if he strikes out, it looks as though he hit a home run.
NBC has found their Peter Pan for the live version of the musical that will air in December and it is Allison Williams. Since I don’t watch Girls, the only thing I know about her is that she is Brian Williams’ daughter. But when I heard she was the one cast, it didn’t scream Peter Pan to me. So I asked my friend who watches the HBO show if she would be good, and he said no. Then I listened to some of her singing videos on YouTube and it confirmed what I thinking. Her voice is too high to play the male lead. Was it in her dad’s contract that she gets to star in something huge on the network so he can promote his little girl like crazy?
I’d rather deal with Carrie Underwood’s bad acting than what I am expecting this musical special to be. I have a feeling it will be all about Christopher Walken’s dancing and not about everything else.
What do you think of Allison Wiliams as Peter Pan?
Food Fighters debuts on NBC tonight at 8p and you want to make a reservation to see this cooking competition show.
We have seen cooking competition shows where it’s home cooks vs home cooks or professional chefs vs professional chefs, but we’ve never seen one where it’s a home cook vs a professional chef. That is until tonight because that’s what Food Fighters is all about.
Each week a home cook will bring five of their best recipes with them and they take a renowned chef head on for up to $100,000. That well-known chef is known for cooking food a certain way, so how will they do when they are taken out of their comfort zone?
So how do the home cooks earn up to $100,000 each episode? They will go head to head with a pro. Each round they win, they earn money. If they lose a round, they do not win anything but they still go on to finish the episode and they are not sent home like they would be on other shows.
Besides heating things up on the stove, things get quite heated between the cooks. They trash talk each other like nobody’s business, but it is all done out of fun. And that is what makes this show so much fun.
Well that and Adam Richman who hosts it. Not only does he bring the heart, he also explains how they are preparing the meals in his own special enjoyable way. His love for food is infectious and it comes across on this show.
So tune in for a competition show that is not like anything you’ve seen on TV. Not only because of the premise but also because of how it is delivered to the audience. It’s served with a lot of love and lot joy, just like the perfect home cooked meal.
Last Comic Standing has the last laugh at NBC because even though it has had many hosts and been off the air for a few seasons, NBC announced today that it will be back next season. Which makes a lot sense to me because this has been the competition show’s best one yet. I don’t know if having Wanda Sykes producing has helped it or if it’s JB Smoove’s hosting or could it be having Roseanne Barr, Keenen Ivory Wayans and Russell Peters judging or maybe just maybe it is how funny all of the comedians are on it this year. I am thinking it is all of the above. So I am happy that the show will be back next year for more laughs because we need them.
NBC also said that America’s Got Talent and America’s Ninja Warrior will be joining LCS and The Night Shift next summer on their lineup. Hopefully Undateable will be back with these other shows because it also deserves to be there.
Now when it comes to this season of LCS, I hope that Joe Machi wins it all because he is freaking hilarious. I almost changed my password to his suggestion because it is so brilliant, but I can’t even type out that word.
Amy Poehler isn’t the only funny one in her family, and tonight at 9p on NBC you will find out that her brother, Greg, is just as funny in Welcome to Sweden.
Greg plays Bruce, a successful accountant to the celebrities, who moves to Sweden to be with his girlfriend, Emma (Josephine Bornebusch). Only problems are; he doesn’t speak the language, doesn’t know anyone, doesn’t know anything about it and he doesn’t have a job. Now, he has to do all of that and learn how to drive on the other side of the road as soon as he can. While being under the scrutiny of her family and constantly being contacted by past clients like Gene Simmons and Will Ferrell.
Each week, you will see this American man become a Swedish one before our eyes and it won’t be easy. But it will be funny. So tune in for a comedy that besides making us laugh, it also gives us a beautiful tour of Sweden. Unlike shows that claim to film in a certain location this one is really shot in Sweden. So that means it is as beautiful to see as it is joy to watch.
America’s Got Talent should just end their season right now because last night we got to meet the person who is going to win it all. Ray Jessel, is 84 years young and he had everyone laughing as soon as he came on to the stage. But he wasn’t there to be a comedian, he was there to sing his song. A song, with a special surprise that earned him a standing ovation and the admiration of all of the judges. What was so special about it? You just have to watch the video because, I promise you, it is so freaking worth it.
If he doesn’t win this season, there is something seriously wrong with America. Am I right?
NBC announced today that The Night Shift will be back for a second season according to The Hollywood Reporter. The medical drama has been doing well for the network and I think they made a wise decision by bringing it back for another season. Now, if only they would also pick up Undateable, all would be right for NBC’s summer.
I sincerely love that summer TV is now full of original programming and some of it, like TNS, is better than some of the stuff we see in the fall.
If you’ve never seen the show, make sure to check it tonight at 10p. Tonight’s episode is very powerful one as several soldiers come into the hospital with injuries. One doctor will fight to save a soldier’s leg and another doctor will fight to keep their secret a secret. Something that will prove very hard to do.
Tonight at 9p on TNT, Rizzoli and Isles say goodbye to one of their own. On August 19, 2013, we were all shocked when news came out that Lee Thompson Young had passed away and tonight the show he was starring in at the time says goodbye to him and his character, Barry Frost. The show does a beautiful tribute to him as they remember him throughout the episode and at his character’s funeral.
Anyone who is and has been a fan of this of police drama will want to tune in because it is a must not miss episode for us.
Also at 9p, but on ABC Family is Chasing Life. April Carver (Italia Ricci) is assigned a story that will change her life. A man claims that his carrot juice is helping people with cancer, so she talks to him about and tries a sample. When she comes back to see him, he realizes that she has cancer like him and she finally has someone to talk about her leukemia. So now she has someone can relate to, but something happens that changes everything and her perspective about it all. How will it change her, we will just have to tune in next week to find out.
Tonight’s episode is the first one that really deals with the emotions that come to a cancer patient after their diagnosis and because of that is a very powerful one.
Finally at 10p a storm is coming to NBC’s The Night Shift and our doctors will be caught up in it. There is a dangerous storm on the outside and that one isn’t even as bad as the one that is happening in the hospital. Scott Wolf joins the team tonight as the lead trauma surgeon. Scott Collins (Wolf) is dating Jordan (Jill Flint) and he is going to cause problems for her ex, TJ (Eoin Macken). Those two don’t see eye to eye and their conflict is going to get a whole lot worse before the ground is even dry again.
Meanwhile Topher (Ken Leung) gets a call from his wife that she is labor. But it gets worse because she was in a car accident and trapped in the storm. And gets even worse because she doesn’t know where she is. Will he find her before it is too late? You will just have to watch this emotional episode to find out.
Yesterday on America’s Got Talent after two men Salsa danced, Howard Stern suggested to Howie Mandel that they take a quick lesson from them. So after a little coaxing from the DJ, the comedian took him up on his offer. So up on the stage they went, and together they Salsaed their way in to each others and our hearts.
If I were the NBC competition show, I would seriously have The Hows learn a full Salsa dance and perform it during the season finale. I know that would get me to watch, would you tune in to see it?
