The Gong Show is bananas, Love Connection finds one, The Night Shift is back
June 22nd, 2017 under ABC, Andy Cohen, NBC. [ Comments: none ]


After nearly 30 years of being off of the air, The Gong Show is back on ABC tonight at 10p and just as wacky, wild and bananas.

For those of you who do not know what The Gong Show is, think what if all the rejected acts on America’s Got Talent had a game show of their own. There you go. They are acts you have never seen before and you do not know why you want to see them. Yet you enjoy every one of them, even the women who is dressed as Little Bo Peep and puts a whole living tarantula in her mouth. Then there is a married couple who do weird things with bananas. Not that thing, but you will see what I mean. Or a man dressed as an ape riding around on a unicycle playing the bagpipes. It does not make sense, but it does not have to.

Each week there will be three different celebrity judges like Will Arnett (who is the Executive Producer), Ken Jeong, Zach Galifianakis, Will Forte, Tracee Ellis Ross, Anthony Anderson and many more. They will judge the performers with a score from 1-10 and the winner of the night goes home with $2,000.17 and a trophy! Now what if an act is that terrible, and there are some really bad ones, they get gonged and that is why it is called The Gong Show.

As much as I love the show, I gong the host. It is hosted by Tommy Maitland who is really Mike Myers in disguise. It makes no sense to me and he adds absolutely nothing to it. If you are going to have Mike Myers host the show, then have him f*cking host the show. Plus, the makeup department screwed up and made him look like Robin Williams. For someone like me, who still cannot watch Williams’ films after his death, it is hard for me to watch Myers as Maitland looking like Williams.

Other than that The Gong Show is a hit and not a hit to the gong, so tune in for the wackiest show on television!


Did you know that when Love Connection ran before, it made 27 successful matches that lead to marriage. The Fox version is airing its fourth episode tonight at 9p, and it already has a man who gets down on one knee to ask his date to marry him. Will she say yes? I am not going to tell you. You are going to have tune in for one group of love connections that go horribly bad and another that goes the complete opposite.

I did not think I would Love Connection as much as I do, but I look forward to it every week. It is innocent fun and Andy Cohen is a great host!


Also at 10p but over at NBC, The Night Shift is back for its fourth season. Sadly, not everyone is back because they are protesting Dr. Julian Cummings (James McDaniel) buying the hospital, shutting down the ER and firing Topher. Now they are half staffed and no one is listening to him. Jordan (Jill Flint) finds ways to piss him off and she might have come up with a way to not only save the ER but also everyone’s job. Will he listen?

TJ is still in Syria and he is constant danger. He will not be getting out of there anytime soon, so he will have to fight for his life.

If that is not enough, several of the doctors will go out on a call in San Antonio and we are not sure they will get out of alive.

Translation, it is another exciting episode of The Night Shift. The show that helped to bring back medical dramas is still just as good as it always is.

World of Dance is something to dance about!
May 30th, 2017 under J-Lo, NBC. [ Comments: none ]


If you love dance, then you are going to love World of Dance that debuts at 10p on NBC tonight. The show pits dancers from all over the World against each other, and only one can win the grand prize of $1 million.

On tonight’s season premiere we see all types of dancers like Ballroom, Contemporary, Beat Boys and Jazz and each one of them will blow you away. So much so, you will want to take dance classes just so you can move just a tiny bit like them.

After each performer shows us why they are there, the judges, Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough and Ne-Yo, score them on 5 different criteria. Each category, Performance, Technique, Choreography, Creativity and Presentation, is worth 20 points for a total of 100 points from each judge and in order to move to the next round they need to score above an average of 80 points.

On tonight’s show, only one team won’t move on, but all the others will. I don’t agree with with which performer scored the highest score of the night because I thought they were pretty weak. But I did like the judges’ opinions for the most part. In fact, I really liked how the show wasn’t about them unlike Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance. Although, Derek Hough needs to tone it down a bit because he is almost as annoying as Nigel Lythgoe and Bruno Tonioli. Ne-Yo gives just enough and J-Lo is tolerable and I normally can’t stand her.

Also on the judges front and this is for the directors, stop showing their reactions during the routines. We want to see the dancers dance and not the judges’ faces. That is my biggest complaint and that says a lot that that is the only one.

Therefore, if you love dance, you will love this show. You will see things you have never seen before in dance and that is hard to do these days.

2017 says Bye Bye Birdie until 2018
May 25th, 2017 under J-Lo, NBC. [ Comments: none ]


In October, NBC announced that Bye Bye Birdie with Jennifer Lopez was going to be their 2017 live Christmastime musical and today they said they are postponing it until 2018. According to Variety, the delay is due J-Lo’s busy schedule. Which I find interesting because she has had six months to plan for the rehearsal schedule needed for the live Musical production. That makes me wonder what is the real reason? Like is it due to it being an older, not as well known production and the modern day one they did in December didn’t stick like Hairspray with the ratings? We don’t know.

What we do know is that there will be no live production this year, and the next time we will see one on NBC is this Easter with Jesus Christ Superstar. That live show is done by the same production team that is doing Bye Bye Birdie. Maybe 2 live performances was too much for them and too costly for the network to bomb like poop coming from birdie in a tree? Things that make you go hmmmm?

The verdict is finally in for NBC’s Trial & Error!
May 20th, 2017 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]


Even though NBC announced their 2017-2018 schedule last week, there was show that was still waiting to find out if it would be back for another season. Today, that show found out its fate and Trial & Error will be back for a 10-episode second season!

All I have to say is about time because this is the wittiest comedy to grace our televisions in a while. You either have to watch it closely or watch it a few times if you want to catch all the jokes. Even then, you might miss a few. Although you might miss a joke or two, there are still plenty of them that will leave you laughing until you cry.

If you missed the first season, then you can watch it on NBC.com or their app.
