ABC’s old TGIF stars with the new ones
September 20th, 2018 under ABC, Speechless. [ Comments: none ]


Last year, ABC didn’t think that they needed sitcoms on Friday and they were very wrong. Therefore, they are making TGIF a thing again.

Remember in the ’90s our Fridays nights were full of Perfect Strangers, its spinoff Family Matters and Boy Meets World? Now in 2018, it is about ’90s based sitcom Fresh Off the Boat and modern-day’s Speechless.

Thus, someone at ABC thought it would be cool to merge the two eras with stars from the past and present. They are PS’s cousins Bronson Pinchot and Mark-Linn Baker, everyone’s favorite dad Reginald VelJohnson from FM, BMW teen dream queen Danielle Fishel, FOB’s Constance Wu and Randall Park, and Speechless’ John Ross Bowie and Cedric Yarbough.

You know if ABC were smart, they would do a massive revival of their old shows. Seeing the stars from yesteryear makes me miss them and Dinosaurs. I want my baby back because you gotta love him!

Until then I will be spending my Fridays with Fresh Off the Boat and Speechless starting on October 5th at 8p.

The many faces of Minnie Driver and Debra Messing
August 30th, 2018 under Debra Messing, Speechless, The Many Faces of. [ Comments: none ]


Minnie Driver is back filming Will & Grace this week. During a break, the actress and Debra Messing had some selfie fun. They took several photos together making many different faces that leave us speechless with joy.

They sitcom stars showed us not only can they make us laugh with their acting, but they can also do it with their faces. Which is very important for comedic actors.

Will & Grace is back on NBC October 4th and Speechless returns the following night on ABC.

Speechless crosses the pond for its 2-part season premiere
July 30th, 2018 under Speechless. [ Comments: none ]


We are about two months away from the start of the fall season on broadcast TV, but the shows are already filming now. Speechless has a bloody good season premiere in the works. To start off their third season, they are going to London to meet Maya’s (Minnie Driver), estranged dad. Some Bloke named John Cleese.

If you are going to go to England for a 2-part storyline, where are you going to go? Of course, they are going to go to Buckingham Palace. Here are Micah Fowler (and his real mom), John Ross Bowie and Cedric Yarborough posing outside the historic location.

This one photo has me so excited, I cannot wait to see what trouble the DiMeo family gets into when they are overseas, Friday, October 5th and 12th on ABC. Mark your calendars because you do not want to miss this jolly good time.

Speechless has twice the voice tonight!
March 14th, 2018 under Speechless. [ Comments: none ]


ABC is airing two episodes of Speechless tonight starting at 8p and it is twice the joy!

For the first episode, Maya (Minnie Driver) gets jury duty. While you and I would hate it, she is so excited for the opportunity. Why? Because she gets away from her family, of course. Only problem, her arch nemeses (Sarah Chalke) also got picked. Now the two of them try to get the judge to dismiss the other one. He decides to keep them both on the jury. What happens next? You have to see it to believe it.

JJ (Micah Fowler) meanwhile, decides to try dating. He sets up dates at a coffee shop and he has Kenneth (Cedric Yarbrough) help him out if needed. They come up with a plan that if he does not like the girl, he will toss his coffee to the ground. How many coffees get tossed the ground?

Finally, Ray (Mason Cook) feels that is father (John Ross Bowie) is spending more time with Dylan (Kyla Kenedy) than him. Therefore, he tries to come up with new ways to win back his father’s love. Will it work?

Then at 8:30p, JJ gets to direct his first movie at school. Everyone has an opinion and his movie goes to hell. Will he get his horror movie back on track? Especially since Ray thinks being in the movie will help win Taylor back.

Dylan meanwhile finds out a secret about her mom when she watches a tape that she thinks is her parents wedding video. Why was her mom wearing a wedding dress for a man Dylan doesn’t know? Maya will do anything and everything to keep her secret. And I mean that.

Finally, Jimmy helps out his neighbor who is renovating his house. It all works well until it doesn’t. And when it doesn’t, it goes really bad. Really, really bad.

But what goes really, really good is these two episodes of Speechless. I love this show so much because not only is it funny, it helps to normalize cerebral palsy. Something that is so important for television do and they do it right.

Speechless’ Micah Fowler will be honored by United Cerebral Palsy of LA
January 17th, 2018 under Speechless. [ Comments: none ]


One of the things I love most about Speechless, is not only the humor, but that they hired Micah Fowler, an actor, with Cerebral Palsy to play a character who has it. While a lot of shows would use an actor who does not have the disability, the ABC sitcom did not do that. Because of that casting, the program is helping to normalize the disorder and educate the viewers what it is like living with a family member who has it. Not only that it shows us that you can live a pretty normal life with CP.

Don’t take my word for it, United Cerebral Palsy of Los Angeles also believes it. That is why on March 11th, they are going to Fowler, who plays JJ Dimeo on the comedy. Fowler will be presented with the Trailblazer Award during UCPLA’s fourth annual Art of Care celebration.

Fowler is not only educating people on the small screen, he also does it when the camera is not on him. That is why I think he truly deserves this honor and hopefully he will get many more.

One of the ways to make that happen is to watch Speechless every Wednesday at 8:30p, so ABC will renew for another season. Plus, it really is a funny show with an important message.
