Several of the Glindas and Elphabas take part in A Very Wicked Halloween
October 18th, 2018 under Kristin Chenoweth, NBC. [ Comments: none ]

NBC announced that they are airing A Very Wicked Halloween: Celebrating 15 Years on Broadway on October 29th with the original Glinda and Elphaba. That means we knew that Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth are going to perform on the magical night.

What we did not know, until after last night’s taping, is that several of the actresses, who have played the role throughout the musical’s run, will also be part of, what I am sure will be, the very Popular broadcast. A notion that I think is a really smart move. One that I will be looking forward to.

Ariana Grande, Pentatonix and Adam Lambert will also be performing songs from the hit musical that has been Defying Gravity for 15 years and counting.


Lots of secrets revealed on Manifest and The Good Doctor tonight
October 15th, 2018 under ABC, NBC, Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 10p on NBC, we get to know two more passengers on Flight 828 on Manifest. One, who we knew was on the plane, and one we did not know about. What secret does that person have?

While we get to know more about the passengers, we also get to know Olive (Luna Blaise). She gets in trouble and calls her mom boyfriend to bail her out instead of her dad. When her dad (Josh Dallas) finds out about his daughter, he goes to rescue her. Only to run into Olive and the man she also thinks of as a father. Can we say awkward?

Talking about awkward, Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh), is assigned to a stakeout with her ex-boyfriend (Alfredo Narciso). When she gets one of her visions, it puts both of them in harm’s way. What will this vision cost them?

All of this leads up to next week’s episode that shows us what happened to people who were not on the plane during those 5 years. There is a reason why this show is the #1 new show, it is that good. If you have not seen it, then catch up on the NBC app.

Also at 10p but over on ABC is The Good Doctor. Tonight, we get to know more about Dr. Glassman (Richard Schiff) as he talks to the ghost of his dead daughter. Since he is sleep deprived after his surgery, his conscience has brought her back to him. The two did not have it easy when she was alive and Shaun (Freddie Highmore) is part of the reason why. Is she there to help her father or to help him break on through to the other side.

Shaun and Dr. Melendez (Nicholas Gonzalez) are assigned to a case that tells us a lot of new things about the two doctors. We get to meet the woman that raised Shaun before he moved in with Dr. Glassman. She had an impact on him and that will help him tonight. But not as much as what we are going to learn about Dr. Melendez.

That foster mom is not the only woman who has been in Shaun’s life, Lea (Paige Spara) is the other one. She tells Shaun she is moving out, and he does not know how to handle that. He does something shocking to win her back.

The first three episodes of this season were a letdown, but tonight more than makes up for them.


The first new show to get a full season pickup is…
October 10th, 2018 under Fox, NBC. [ Comments: none ]

We are just three weeks into the fall season and we already have a new show that got a full season pick up. NBC announced today that they ordered the bottom nine from New Amsterdam. Is the news a surprise? Only in I thought that Manifest was going to get that honor.

Other than that, I am excited that the medical drama, which is not all about scaring the crap out of us with scary medical diagnosis, got the title. Out of all of the new shows, this was the first one that I liked and made me cry. In other words, my favorite new show of the fall. As much as I love the medical drama as a whole, I do not think it would be as successful without Ryan Eggold as the lead. He is so endearing in the role as the medical director of the hospital, you cannot help but to adore this show.

New Amsterdam is not the medical drama to be asked to do 22 episodes this season. Today, Fox asked the same of The Resident which is doing well in its second season. My only complaint is there is not enough screen time for Malcolm Jamal Warner. He is my favorite part of the show.

I guess we can say that diagnosis for the 2018-2019 is that is all about the doctor shows. A prognosis I can live with since I watch them all, but Grey’s Anatomy. When it comes to that medical soap opera, they added Josh Radnor to the show. He can do so much better than this.


NBC’s Must See Thursday is back!
October 4th, 2018 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p, Must See Thursday is back on NBC. The first show is Superstore and it starts off a few months after the whoppie of a season finale. Both Jonah (Ben Feldman) and Amy (America Ferrera) were suspended because of the internationally viewed romp and now they are ready to get back to work. Just in time for Back to School sales.

Now that they are both back at work, everyone wants to know what happened that night. No detail is left unasked. Meaning we will get to find out if they are still seeing each other or not.

And we will be seeing a lot more of Amy and Dina (Lauren Ash) because they are both very pregnant. Their huge bellies made me laugh as did the episode in general.

Then at 8:30p on The Good Place, Michael (Ted Danson) and Janet (D’Arcy Carden) go down to earth to stop demon Trevor (Adam Scott) from infiltrating all of the good work they have done to make Elanor (Kristen Bell), Chidi (William Jackson Harper), Tahani (Jameela Jamil) and Jason (Manny Jacinto) good people. Who will win out the bad people or the less bad people?

You do not want to miss another devilishly good episode with another shocking ending.

Then at 9p, Will & Grace is back and Sean Hayes will make you laugh until your face is numb! He needs to come with a warning because he is a comedic genius.

Karen (Megan Mullally) goes to Will for help when she sees her boobs on another woman. What does that mean?

Meanwhile, Grace (Debra Messing) meets the West Side Curmudgeon (David Schwimmer). At first, she thinks it is a good thing until she realizes why he is known by that name for a reason.

Did I mention Sean Hayes steals the show?

Finally at 9:30p, it is time for I Feel Bad and this show does not make you feel bad.

Emet (Sarayu Blue) is always running late. When she goes to drop the kids off at school, she realizes one drop line is shorter than the other. When she gets on that line, she finds out it for parents of honor roll kids. Something her two older children are not.

Therefore, she makes a copy of the honor roll sticker and puts it on her bumper. The only problem is her son (Rahm Braslaw) thinks it is for him. He gets all excited and tells his grandparents. Emet’s mom (Madhur Jaffrey) gets just as excited and finally gives her daughter the love she has been seeking.

Now, Emet is lying to everyone. It all seems OK until there is an honor roll ceremony. Will Emet come clean or will she somehow get her family to do something else? It is something you have to see to believe.


Why did The Good Place’s Jameela Jamil wear PJs on GMA today?
October 2nd, 2018 under NBC, Seth Meyers, TV News. [ Comments: none ]

Good Morning America is on really early in the morning. If you on west coast time, then technically it is on three hours earlier than that. Even if you are in NYC. Therefore, does that explain why The Good Place’s Jameela Jamil wore pajamas on the morning news show today?

Nope, she actually has a good excuse. She explained she did pack a bag with clothes to wear but, ” I left an open chocolate in my bag without realizing. And it melted all over all of my clothes. Which looked a lot like poo. I didn’t want to come on television in what looked like poo.” Which is why she wore the pajamas.

The PJs and the tuxedo outfit she wore on Late Night with Seth Meyers yesterday are the only articles of clothing that she had which are not covered with brown stuff.

Whatever the reason she looks fabulous. More guests should follow suit or should I say PJs.

BTW did you know this is first action gig? She is so good as Tahani on the NBC sitcom, I never would have known.

Back to Late Night, she told the story of how she almost missed her audition for The Good Place. She did not have a curling iron and she wanted to curl her hair. Therefore, she went to use her roommate’s that was in a box by a famous hairstylist. Turns out it was not something that curls your hair. Instead, it curls your toes. As in it was a vibrator. Thus, she needed to rewash her locks because she knew where that pink wand had beenn. Whatever the reason, it worked because she got the job.
