NBC cancels Mission Control before it even airs
October 15th, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

Krysten Ritter was supposed to come back to TV in the midseason replacement Mission Control, but according to Entertainment Weekly NBC cancelled it today before it even saw the light of television. The Bitch from Apt 23 was going to play “the head engineer who leads the Apollo team at Mission Control at the NASA Manned Space Center” in the sitcom, but now it won’t take off. EW says that after Michael Rosenbaum left, they had problems recasting the roll.
When it comes to the show, it doesn’t like anything I would want to watch. So it sounds like a smart decision on their part.
Hopefully this bad news is good for their struggling sitcoms. I really hope that the NBC sticks with A to Z because it has the potential to be the best RomCom sitcom to ever grace our TV sets.


Hollywood Execs knew Casey Wilson was getting engaged before she did!
October 14th, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 9p on NBC’s Marry Me, Annie (Casey Wilson) and Jake (Ken Marino) are going to get engaged and the show has ties to the actress’ real life.
David Caspe created tonight’s sitcom and he met Wilson on their past show, Happy Endings. Back when they were still dating, Caspe started pitching this show around. Even though they were not engaged at the time, he knew he was getting ready to pop the question. So he explained at the NBC TCA Summer Press Tour Day, “In an attempt to sell the show, because I care much more about money than personal relationships, all my pitches were basically saying like what’s great about this show is that it’s going to mirror my actual life because I’m going to be proposing very soon.” Then he added, “And then I swore all the presidents of all the networks to secrecy. So technically, Bob Greenblatt and Jen Salke (NBC Executives), they all knew I was going to propose before Casey did or any of her family.”
So did Casey say yes in real life? She did and on May 25, 2014 they became Mr & Mrs Caspe. Does Annie say yes to Jake? We will have to tune in every Tuesday at 9p to find out.


Katherine Heigl looks beat up!
October 1st, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

Katherine Heigl Intstagrammed this photo of herself bloodied and battered, and yet she has a big smile on her face. So is that the way the cast of her new NBC show is letting her know how they feel about her? No, just the writers writing something for her character on State of Affairs where she plays CIA Agent. Therefore, in a way, it’s like the writers are letting her know how they feel about her.
Want to see the scene that caused her to look like that, then mark your calendars to start recording the drama on November 17th to find out.


Pee Wee Herman or Howard Wolowitz?
September 30th, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

NBC sent out photos of Paul Ruebens on The Blacklist this Monday at 10p and at first glance I thought it was Howard Wolowitz. Seriously, doesn’t Pee Wee Herman look just like a clone of The Big Bang Theory character? Did Sheldon clone his “friend”? What’s the dealio?
I will tell you one thing if we ever get to meet Wolowitz’s dad, then Ruebens would be perfect for the role.


The Mysteries of Laura makes its case tonight!
September 17th, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 10p we get a sneak peek at The Mysteries of Laura, and you don’t want to miss this fun cop drama.
Laura (Debra Messing) is a top notch unconventional NYC homicide detective. That is a tough enough job for anyone. Then throw in the fact that her childish husband, Jake (Josh Lucas) cheated on her, so she kicked him out but he doesn’t realize it isn’t over between them. Finally, she has twin toddler boys who are most likely the spawn of the devil. They have just been kicked out of an elite pre-K and no other school wants to take them in. Her soon-to-be-ex is no help when it comes to finding them a new school. And to make matters worse, she has to solve a high profile murder in Westchester. With all of that on her plate, how is she going to do it all? She is supermom or close to it.
Janina Gavankar, who plays the by-the-book homicide detective Meredith Bose, described this show as being like Columbo and I think that is an accurate description. Laura has that charm and flare about her, even down to the raincoat.
The Mysteries of Laura is lighter than the average crime of the week shows and because of that, it has a much broader appeal. So if you like procedurals but want to laugh, then this is the show for you.
The show moves to its regular time slot of 8p starting next Wednesday.


Cat fights on the set of America’s Got Talent?
September 17th, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

We know that the judges on reality shows fight over contestants, but it looks like Mel B and Heidi Klum are taking it to a whole new level. So are things really scary between the two spicy ladies? Nope, they are just having some fun during the very tense finals on the competition series.
To see who wins it all, tune into NBC tonight at 8p.


I guess Chris Pratt didn’t learn how to pitch from Moneyball
September 5th, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

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.


Does Allison Williams as Peter Pan fly with you?
September 3rd, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

NBC released the first photo of Allison Williams as Peter Pan, and are you feeling better about her playing the lead role on December 4th. I am still not feeling her, but does she have you Hooked?


Allison Williams is Peter Pan for NBC
July 30th, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

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 is a yummy knock out!
July 22nd, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

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.
