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.


This is not Last Comic Standing’s last season
July 13th, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

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.


Say hejsan to Welcome to Sweden tonight!
July 10th, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

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.


Ron Funches’ laugh will light up your world like nobody else!
July 4th, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

Undateable (NBC better pick up this sitcom for a second season) is one of those shows that makes you laugh nonstop and the thing that makes you laugh the most is Ron Funches giggle. When you look at the larger than life comedian, you don’t expect him to laugh the way he does. But as soon as he starts, you find yourself giggling like a little schoolgirl in puppy love, along with him. It is like Anderson Cooper, Ricky Gervais and the Pillsbury Doughboy got together, had a giggling baby and it is Ron Funches.
Seriously, I dare you to watch the above clip and not laugh. It’s nearly impossible.


84 year old Ray Jessel steals the show on AGT with his naughty song!
July 2nd, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

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 hires The Night Shift for a second shift!
July 1st, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

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.


Why Undateable is relatable!
June 26th, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

Undateable is NBC’s funniest sitcom in a long time, and some people might not be tuning into the hysterical comedy that airs tonight at 9p and 9:30p because of its name. Something Executive Producer, Bill Lawrence, knows all too well. You see one of his other sitcoms, Cougar Town, also suffers from the problem. It’s something he has come to accept as he admitted at a recent NBC Summer Press Day, “I’m not good at titling shows. I don’t know if that’s been a theme of my career.”
Even though the name, Undateable, might not be the best, the show’s creator, Adam Sztykiel, defends it. What he says about it makes sense as he explained that at some point we go through a phase where we are not dateable for many different reasons. So the concept of the sitcom is, “This is a show about six people that are sort of stuck in that period in a bit of a rut.”
You have Danny (Chris D’Elia) who just wants to have sex and doesn’t want to date. His sister, Leslie (Bianca Kajlich), is bitter from her recent divorce. Danny’s roommate, Bar owner Justin (Brent Morin), who just doesn’t know how to ask out the woman he likes. Justin’s bartender, Brett (David Fynn), who recently came out. Justin friend, Burski (Rick Glassman) who thinks he is smooth, but is anything but and he totally cannot and should not talk to women. Finally, there is Justin and Burski’s other friend, Shelly (Ron Funches) and I still can’t figure out why he is Undateable. And together these 6 friends are getting each other through this difficult time and some day they will be dateable. I just hope that is not for a long time because I want this show to go on and on and on.
So Undateable might not have the best name, but it definitely has the best chemistry, writing, acting and laughs on television now. Why not tune in because what else are you doing tonight. It’s not like you have a date. The only date you have is with Undateable at 9p for the hour on NBC! Don’t stand this show up. It wouldn’t like and you wouldn’t like missing out on the jokes you’ll be telling all of your friends about tomorrow and the next day and the day after that and so on.


Very emotional shows for Rizzoli & Isles, Chasing Life and The Night Shift tonight
June 24th, 2014 under ABC Family, NBC, TNT/TBS/TCM. [ Comments: none ]

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.


What makes the cast of Undateable undateable?
June 5th, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

Undateable is the biggest comedy to debut in the summer in years, and it is back with two new episodes on NBC tonight at 9p. Having seem the those two episodes, I can tell you don’t want to say no this show.
Danny (Chris D’elia) does something to get Justin (Brent Morin) and Nicki (Briga Heelan) together; but when Justin tries to pretend it never happened, will it kill his chances with the girl of his dreams. Or maybe the undateable man will finally be dateable? You just have to tune into these very funny episodes to find out.
If you have seen this show, then you know the cast is very dateable. But there are things that make them undateable and the show’s star Chris D’elia and the Executive Producer Bill Lawrence dished about what those things are on a conference call last week.
For Chris the explanation is an easy one, because he said this about `himself, “I just feel like I’m undateable the whole time, my whole life.” I know, I have a friend that is so in love with him, she would date him in instant.
Chris had this to say about his friend, Brent Morin, “Well Brent is too short.” Then Bill added, “The thing Brent hates is we make fun of him for being short in real life and on the show and he’s not. He’s almost 6’ tall, but Chris and I are both taller than him.” Then he added with a laugh, “Yes, also by the way notice – because you notice that Brent’s a little angry in real life.”
So what about Rick Glassman? Here’s what Chris let us know about him, “Rick is completely annoying. He’s so annoying and so like to date him, I couldn’t even imagine because you’d be arguing over things that just have no, you’d be like, ‘No, that’s a bagel,’ and he’d be like, ‘No, it’s not, it’s a bird.’ Like that’s how annoying he is.”
And what about the love machine Ron Fuches? Bill shared with us, “much like you said Chris, the whole time you’d be dating Ron, I think you would in the back of your head feel like he wasn’t a real person and that he was just a figment of your imagination.”
So which cast member is dateable? According to Bill it is, the brand new mom in real life, Bianca Kajlich.
Of course, the comedian and the sitcom creator were joking about the castmates. And it is these types of joke that make the show so much fun and entertaining.
So if you can date one of those Undateable people, which one would it be? Now that you know what makes then Undateable?


Howard Stern and Howie Mandel Salsa dance together!
June 4th, 2014 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

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?
