The first new show banished to Saturdays aka cancelled is…
October 26th, 2017 under ABC. [ Comments: none ]

ABC once again has the first new show to be cancelled and this year it is Ten Days in the Valley. Never heard of it. Don’t worry barely anyone else did either and that is why it is moving to Saturdays. To make matters even more depressing for the Kyra Sedgewick starrer that aired Sundays at 10p after Shark Tank. Are you saying to yourself, that is where they put Shark Tank? Sorry, got distracted like I did when I attempted to watch the pilot. What is even sadder, is that they are pulling the show effective immediately, but will not air the remaining episodes until mid-December. By then no one will remember what happened in the first four episodes. But since we are talking about maybe 2 million people, does it really matter?

What will replace it? For the next few weeks, we will get back to back episodes of Shark Tank. I guess you can say that is Mr Wonderful for us!

When it comes to what show will get the ax next, pick from ABC’s other new shows that are not called The Good Doctor. In other words, Marvel’s Inhumans, The Mayor and/or Kevin (Probably) Saves the World. The latter one is really sweet and you should watch it.


Speechless will have you laughing so hard, it’ll leave you speechless!
October 25th, 2017 under ABC, Speechless. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8:30p on ABC, Speechless gets a Halloween episode that gives The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror a run for their trick or treating candy!

The DiMeo kids get into a really old bag of candy and that causes them all the hallucinate. First up is JJ (Micah Fowler) who dreams he is Linda Blair from The Exorcist. It all happens when Kenneth (Cedric Yarbrough) accidentally breaks his talking board and replaces it with a haunted Ouija board. Now anyone who uses it sounds like a demon, and JJ is going around terrorizing and killing people. Something his mom (Minnie Driver) does not have a problem with. Since the school does, they decide to do an exorcism on him before the demon is forever trapped inside of him.

Next up, Dylan (Kyla Kenedy) tries the candy and she lives Freaky Friday with Ray (Mason Cook). Ray likes being in Dylan’s body so much, he doesn’t want to switch back. Will she get her body back or will she be inside of her brother forever?

Finally, Ray gets his cut, as in Saw! All night long Maya (Driver) and Jimmy (John Ross Bowie) have been trying to escape to an Escape Room; but since the kids have been sick, they have not been able to go. Finally, everyone is OK enough to go but there is a slight problem. A Jigsaw is controlling the game and will not let them leave. Not only that, he is having torturing him. Will they get out of there alive? Who is behind the Jigsaw mask?

Did I mention that we see Kevin dress up perfectly as at least 7 Michael Jacksons throughout the Black and White years?

Tonight’s episode is such Thriller; I hope it becomes an annual treat. I will also suggest you to record this episode because you will be saying Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough and you won’t want to Beat It anytime soon.


Maze-cenrtric Lucifer, The Gifted runaways and The Good Doctor kisses and tells
October 16th, 2017 under ABC, Fox, Lucifer, Marvel Comics. [ Comments: none ]

I love Lucifer (Tom Ellis) but tonight at 8p on Fox, the episode is mostly about his even more devilish ally Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt). I do not what took them three seasons to do this, but good things come to those who wait.

Maze is working as a Bounty Hunter and she has to cross over to Canada to catch her guy. Ben Rivers (Chris McKenna) is a very charming murderer, who uses his looks and appeal to get his women. Since she is Maze, she will do a lot illegal things to capture him. Once she does, she sees herself in him. There is a reason why and that reason might be the end of them. Will it be?

Seriously, this episode is so much fun that I could honestly see them spinning off Mr. and Mrs. Mazikeen Smith as a series. Whether you watch the show (which you should) or not, you will enjoy tonight’s show.

Tonight at 9p on Fox, we learn even more about the Mutants on The Gifted.

Blink (Jamie Chung) is still dealing with the after effects of overusing her powers in the pilot. One the drawbacks is that she can no longer create portals. Thunderbird (Blair Redford) and Dreamer (Elena Satine) are going to work with her to help her regain her power.

Something they are going to need sooner rather than later. That’s because the Struckers (Amy Acker, Natalie Alyn Lind and Percy Hynes White) ran away in order to rescue their patriarch (Stephen Moyer). They will go to Reed’s brother, who’s son accidentally reveals that they are staying with him. That is when a bunch of locals try to take them in. Thankfully, some of the Gifted come to rescue the Strukers at that very moment. Now they are on the run and need their Mutant abilities to save them.

When it comes to Reed (Boyer), he has been recruited to bring in Mutants in order to save his family. Now that he knows his kids are both Mutants, will that cause the District Attorney to change his outlook on them?

It is another adrenaline ride of episode and that is why people are loving this Marvel Comics show.

Finally at 10p but over on ABC, it is time for The Good Doctor. A medical drama so good, people cannot stop kissing and telling about it. Which is something we are going to learn about Dr Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) tonight.

Dr Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez) is assigned a pregnant patient, whose fetus has a tumor that is blocking its flow of blood. The parents-to-be came to Melendez because they know he has done the surgery that can save their baby. The surgeon thinks it is too risky for the mother, but Murphy comes up with a different way. Much to the dislike of his attending.

Therefore, Melendez sends him and fellow Resident Claire Browne (Antonia Thomas) down to deal with another case. An 18-year-old woman who has a boil insider of her vagina. Turns out it is not a boil, but a lesion and they have to operate. Also turns out this teen has an interesting job. One that will tell us more about Dr Murphy’s love life. He almost kissed a girl once and we will see that tonight.

There is a reason why The Good Doctor is TV #1 new show. It is because it is that good. Even if you missed the first three episodes, you can catch up on them after you watch tonight’s episode. You will be as hooked as the millions of people who are already loving this medical drama.


How huggable is Jason Ritter?
October 10th, 2017 under ABC, Guinness World Records, The View. [ Comments: 3 ]

Jason Ritter stars in the very endearing, must watch Kevin (Probaly) Saves the World Tuesdays at 10p on ABC, and his character has to hug people to help save the world. Therefore, ABC declared today National Hug-a-Kevin Day. Where are Kevin Bacon and Kevin Spacey when you need him? And ladies, I am pretty Kevin Hart’s wife would not like you to hug him today. Too soon?

Anyways, to honor the day, yesterday on The View, Ritter attempted to break the Most Hugs in Minute. The record belongs to someone who hugged 79 people in :60 seconds. Is Ritter now in the Guinness Book of World Records? Yes he is! He hugged 86 people in the allotted time and some more afterwards. Proving that he is not probably, but he is the most huggable guy in the world.

BTW Am I the only one who sees his father, the late John Ritter, in him?

Finally, his equally huggable costar JoAnna Garcia helped him prep for the title over the weekend. To see their rehearsal that did not go that well, then click here!


It is terrific Tuesdays on ABC!
October 3rd, 2017 under ABC, The Middle. [ Comments: none ]

ABC has changed up their Tuesday lineup this season and it is a winner. So much so, I am going to call it Tuesrific!

The night starts off at 8p with the final season of The Middle. Something I am not OK with, but I will enjoy the final episodes as we have them.

The season premiere picks up as the end of the summer and Axl (Charlie McDermott) and his man bun is back from Europe. He is much more lax and wants his stressed out family to relax too. His mom (Patricia Heaton) is stressed out about finding something for the Hecks to put in the town’s time capsule. Sue (Eden Sher) is stressed that she did not do enough this summer, so she is trying to pack it all in in three days. His dad (Neill Flynn) is stressed because he wants his oldest child to get a job and Axl has no intention of doing so. Finally, Brick (Atticus Shaffer) is stressed because he wants to break up with his girlfriend and does not know how to do it.

Will Axl be stressed again by the end of the day or will his family be more lax? You will have to watch this sitcom’s enjoyable final season premiere to find out.

Then at 8:30p, Fresh Off the Boat is back and The Huangs have no where to live. Honey (Chelsey Crisp) invites them to live with her until they find a place, but they are the easiest people to live with. Honey does her best to put up with them, and she looks she about the break. Jessica (Constance Wu) does not feel the tension between them, and she invites her hostess to be her partner on Wheel of Fortune with her for Best Friends Week. That is when Honey finally loses it, and confronts her “best friend,” what happens next is something you do not want to miss. That and Pat Sajak and Vanna White also fighting.

Meanwhile Eddie and Honey’s stepdaughter, Nicole (Luna Blaise) get really close and she confesses something to him. How will react to it? You do not want to miss their special moment or the show in general. Oh and Michael Bolton is back!

Then at 9:30p after Black-ish, The Mayor makes its debut. Courtney Rose (Brandon Micheal Hall) is a Rapper who decides to run for mayor of Fort Grey to promote his music. Although that is his intention, he actually proves himself to be a good candidate for the job. So good, he wins the election. Is he up for the job?

His mom (Yvette Nicole Brown) and his high school nemesis Val (Lea Michele), who becomes his right hand woman, will do their best to get him into shape for the job that he is so not prepared to do. Will they be able to do it? Will he step up to his new responsibility? You just have to check out this endearing half hour show to find out. By the end of the episode you will be voting to watch this show every week.

Then at 10p, the night concludes with Kevin (Probably) Saves the World. Kevin (Jason Ritter) is aimless and he returns home to live with his widowed sister, Amy (JoAnna Garcia Swisher) and her daughter, Reese (Chloe East), who is still not over her father’s death. She also is not a fan of her uncle who was not there for her when her dad died.

One night Amy is called away and Kevin is stuck taking care of niece. As the two of them are looking outside they see a light shoot through the sky. They go to investigate and Kevin makes the mistake of touching it. It throws him backwards and causes him to lose time. Not only that, he starts seeing Yvette (Kimberly Hebert Gregory), an angel who tells him he is the last messenger for his generation and he needs to recruit the new messengers. He doesn’t feel very special, but he has been chosen to be that way. Little by little, he is going to feel that way and with that you have a show that is full of so much heart and joy. Something we all
need these days.
