The new television season is just 8 days old, and it has already given birth to its first full season renewal. That title goes to the show whose trailer was the most viewed, This Is Us.
Is it shock that the heartwarming drama is the first show to have additional episodes order, not at all. It is just as shocking as the twist that they did so quickly. I expect CBS to follow NBC’s suit and give a full season pickup to Bull tomorrow after the ratings come out.
Tonight at 10p on NBC, This Is Us delves further into the ’80s, so that we can see our 3 new favorite 36 year olds as children back then.
Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore) are dealing with being parents to triplets differently. For her it is all in and for him it a lot of pressure to be the man of the family. It will cause problems in their marriage, but will they be able to work through it. Meanwhile back then, we get to see how young Kevin and Randall interacted, and let’s just say it wasn’t easy on him to have an adopted brother of a different color in the late ’80s.
That was then, and this is now. Kevin (Justin Hartley) is still dealing with fallout of quitting his TV show. He will have to decide whether or not to go back to it or forego his acting career. His sister, Kate (Chrissy Metz), is still dealing with her weight issues as she starts a new relationship with a man from their overweight support group. Finally, Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and his family are dealing with having his biological father (Ron Cephas Jones) back in life. There is a touching moment between Randall’s wife (Susan Kelechi Watson) and Jones that will bring tears to your eyes. Those tears will be wiped away by Brown’s hearty laugh.
All leading to the final seconds where we get to see an older version of Mandy Moore and the makeup department knocked it out of the park. Just like this must see heartwarming drama that has already become an addiction.
Superstore is back with a new season tonight at 8p on NBC and it picks up where it left off. All of out favorite employees at Cloud 9 have walked out because Glen (Mark McKinney) was fired. Not only did they walk out, they have also gone on strike and are asking people to boycott the big box store.
Things seem to be going no where until someone from corporate decides to hear their demands. The group sends in Amy (America Ferrera) and Jonah (Ben Feldman) to meet with the man. Things seem to be going OK, until he asks them to do something to get what they want and they don’t want to do. How long will this strike go on for? You will just have to tune in for another great to season to find out.
So I was having one of those Mondays and I didn’t realize that NBC aired a special preview of The Good Place. Therefore, I did not get to tell you to watch. I was not wowed by the first episode but then as the show goes on you see what they are doing. It is not all that it seems and there are some funny and brilliant moments coming up this show that puts you in a good place.
On tonight’s episode, Tahani (Jameela Jamil) throws a party for everyone where they all get their favorite, but then tragedy strikes. Not only that we find out that Eleanor (Kristen Bell) is not the only person who doesn’t belong there, think you know who else was wrongly sent there? You won’t and you will enjoy finding out who it is!
Tonight at 10p on NBC, This Is Us is going to tug at your heartstrings and you are not going to want it to let go.
I have 2 friends, who are born on the same day in different years, and they are so much alike. I always wondered if there was a likeness to people who are born on the same day. This is Us tells the story of 4 people who all share the same day of birth.
It is Jack’s (Milo Ventimiglia) birthday and his wife Rebecca (Mandy Moore) is ready to give him his birthday present, sex. But when her water breaks, it is time for her to go to the hospital to deliver their triplets. There are complications because it is a high risk pregnancy, but her husband will be on her side the whole time as she prepares to give him his other 3 presents.
Then there is Kevin (Justin Hartley), an actor working on a sitcom, and he hates the show. He is over it and with today being his birthday, he doesn’t know how more he can take.
His twin sister Kate (Chrissy Metz) can’t take being over weight more and she just wishes she can lose the extra pounds. Thankfully, she has her brother to support her, and he has her to support him.
Finally, there is Randall (Sterling K Brown), he was abandoned at a fire station the day he was born. After 36 years, he has decided to find his father. When he does, they will have a heartfelt one on one that will change them both.
These people share the same birthday and we will enjoy sharing their lives starting tonight.
To give you a hint how much the critics loved this show, the pilot has been out since the end of May and no one has leaked the twist at the end. I think that says it all. We want you to adore this show as much as us.
Jaimie Alexander was a guest on Live with Kelly yesterday and her boy shorts weren’t causing a Blindspot under her dress. Therefore, the show gave her a pair of Kelly Ripa’s panties to put on. Only problem is the Daytime talk show host is a lot smaller in every way than the NBC action star. so they were very tight. So tight, she could barely breath and move.
No word if Ripa got them back, but sounds like she had to be cut out of them.
Where are those tattoos when she really needs them?
