Al Molinaro passed away yesterday at the age of 96 due complications from a gallbladder infection according to Kenosha News. The actor got his big break later on in his life as Murray the Cop on The Odd Couple. When there was an opening on Happy Days, Garry Marshall hired him for the role of Al Delvecchio. He continued acting in other television shows and commercials until the early ’90s.
So today keep his spirit alive by watching Happy Days or The Odd Couple. Yep, yep, yep, yep, yep, yep, yep!

It is time for Dr Ken‘s first Halloween episode tonight at 8:30p on ABC and it is a real treat!
Dr Ken and his wife got engaged on Halloween back in 1995, but it didn’t go as he planned. He decides to make it up to her by proposing at the same place where it all went down 20 years ago. When he goes to buy her the ring, Alison (Suzy Nakamura) gets a call from the credit card company about a possible fraudulent purchase. She calls him to find out what is going on and they get in a fight. Is his perfect proposal a bust again or will it finally work out this time for the not-so-happily married couple at the moment?
Meanwhile, his kids are having their own problems. Molly (Krista Marie Yu) takes her father’s favorite skeleton to a Halloween party; but when she stops short, Gary breaks in to 206 pieces. Now, Dave (Albert Tsai) and her have to put him back together before their dad finds out. Which gets really complicated when they discover that one of the bones is missing. What will they do?
As bad as all of that is, things are about to get a whole lot worse at the Welltopia Medical Group office. As Julie (Kate Simses) is talking to her boss Pat (Dave Foley), she doesn’t realize that he took one of her lollipops. What is so bad about that? It was a pharmaceutical sample and the lollipop is made of Fentanyl. Now their uptight boss is higher than kite. Damona (Tisha Campbell-Martin) and Julie have to keep an eye out on him, but when they lose track of him the unthinkable happens. What? You just have to tune in to find out.
All of that is a true treat, but the best part about the episode is Dr Ken’s costume. He goes to work dressed up at the Grim Reaper. Imagine what it would be like if your doctor walks in to your appointment dressed up as Death? Yeah, he had better have the paddles on standby. As we know, Ken Jeong was a doctor in real life and some of his real life experiences are making their way on to the show. This is one of them. About 10 years ago, his wife made a joke to him and it inspired the costume. Recently at a press day for the show, he told us “She would say, ‘Why don’t you dress as the Grim Reaper at the HMOs?'” While the two of them have been joking about since then, neither one of them did it until now. And they chose the safest place to do it, television.
There is a reason why Dr Ken was the first new comedy of the fall to get a full season pickup. It is the best one of the bunch and it gets better with each episode. So tune in tonight for an episode that will make you feel as happy as you did when you would come home with a full bag of candy as kid on Halloween. The best part is you won’t have a sugar hangover the next day, just memories of a great episode that made you laugh a lot.
If you are like me, then you dream of dressing your pet up for Halloween. Only thing, is you don’t what costume to get them. Well, yesterday on Conan O’Brien’s show, they came up with some great and fun disguises you can put on your loyal companion. Who doesn’t want to dress their pup up as Bernie Sanders or their turtle as the Staples’ Easy Button or an owl as a Minion? These are just a few of the costume ideas the TBS show came up with and you can see the rest when you hit play.
I just wish he had an idea for a cat. I would’ve let him use my kitty as a model. Although she doesn’t do well with being dressed up or cameras or an audience. She would’ve been purrfect.
What are dressing your best friend up as for Halloween? My BFF is going as a cat because that is all she will allow me to dress her up as. She wins!
Grimm‘s season 4 finale was full of OMG! and WTF? moments and that episode seems pretty tame as compared to tonight’s season premiere on NBC at 9p.
The episode picks up exactly where the season premiere left off. Nick (David Giuntoli) is holding a dying Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) in his arms with him mom’s severed head nearby. Just as Trubel and him realize what just happened, a mysterious group storms in and kidnaps Trubel (Jacqueline Toboni) and drugs Nick. When he awakes, all the women in his life are missing. To makes matters worse there is no sign of any of them either. No blood from Juliette, no package with his mom’s head or Trubel.
Now that his mom is dead and the love of his life died in his arms, Nick completely loses it. So much so, that Hank (Russell Hornsby), Wu (Reggie Lee), Renard (Sasha Roiz), Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and Rosalee (Bree Turner) don’t believe anything he is saying. Even though, they think he might be going crazy, they still help him out. Is he crazy or is there some truth to his theory about what happened and who is targeting him?
If that isn’t enough for him to handle, Adalind (Claire Coffee) goes into labor in the mist of all the craziness. Will Nick and her son come in to the world smoothly or will their be complications?
Like I said, tonight’s Grimm is the best and most exciting season premiere of the fall, so you don’t want to miss it. Especially since tonight’s episode sets up for an exciting and thrilling 5th season.
