American Housewife is a Little Shop of Horrors, Kids Are Alright gets drafted
February 5th, 2019 under ABC, Katy Mixon. [ Comments: none ]


American Housewife moves to its new night and time tonight at 8p on ABC, and it is an episode to sing about. It is not the only one because the sitcom is getting two more musical episodes this season. On March 19th, Taylor’s (Meg Donnelly) wants to audtion for American Idol, but her parents, Katie (Katy Mixon) and Greg (Diedrich Bader), do not want her to do it. How will they convince her not to fly out to LA. Then on May 21st, Katie decides to leave the family to fend for themselves. The season finale will feature four original songs written by Justin Paul (The Greatest Showman and Glenn Slater (Tangled, Galavant) as well as choreography from Ashley Wallen (La La Land, The Greatest Showman).

Those episodes are still a ways away, let’s talk about tonight. Katie likes to do things her way, and Greg likes to do taxes his way. When she goes to a tax guy to do their taxes, Greg seeks revenge on his wife. If you are new to the show, that is going to be a huge mistake for him. How will she prove to him how big of a mistake he made? Pray for Greg is all I will say.

Here is where the musical part comes in to play tonight. Taylor gets the lead in Little Shop of Horrors tonight and Pierce (Milo Manheim) is the Seymour to her Audrey. He has been doing everything he can to get her to be his including rigging how she got the lead. When her ex-boyfriend Trip (Peyton Meyer) tries to warn her what he has done, she doesn’t believe him. Will he be able to get through to her before it is too late?

I am happy that ABC has enough faith in American Housewife to have it lead off a night. It is a sweet show that more people should be watching. Therefore, watch it.

Then at 8:30p, The Kids Are Alright tackles something many parents went through from 1969-1972. They would tune into to see if their son was going to be drafted to go to Vietnam via the lottery.

The Clearys’ oldest son, Lawrence (Sam Straley) dropped out of the seminary and that means his deferment no longer works. He gets a letter telling him that he has been drafted and must report in two weeks. Just as he tells his family the news, Eddie’s (Caleb Foote) birthday comes up in the lottery. That means when he turns 18 in a few months, he will have to enlist.

Their parents act differently to the news. Their dad (Michael Cudlitz) is a WWII vet and he is proud his sons will be going to war and make them men. While their mom (Mary McCormack) will do everything in her power to make sure they never leave for Vietnam. Lawrence is ready to go to Canada to avoid going. However, Eddie wants to make his dad proud by serving.

Will they be going to Vietnam or will they get out of the draft? This is an emotional episode that should make every man born after 1972 be grateful, they never had to worry about being drafted. It is also important to watch before you tune into the State of the Union (don’t watch). It reminds us how far our government will go so boys in power can use people as their own personal GI Joes. This is a reminder that we should never get back to a point where people are forced to fight a war they don’t want to fight. Something two of our Presidents should know all too well because they did all they could to not go to Vietnam. They were sucessful, but many were not.

ABC renews 4 shows and announced Modern Family is ending
February 5th, 2019 under ABC, Modern Family, Uncategorized. [ Comments: none ]


ABC announced today that they are picking up The Good Doctor, Shark Tank and the depressing A Million Little Things for another season. That is the good news.

The bad news in that they also picked up Modern Family for an 11th and finale season. That means we have to sit through another season of the sitcom that should have ended a few seasons ago. Hopefully, they will get back to how good they were the show first started which would be really nice to the loyal fans. Are you sad MF is adding? What will Sofia Vergara do?

When it comes to TGD, I am happy about the renewal after last night’s episode. It got back to where they were last season. Let’s just hope it doesn’t go downhill when the show’s Executive Producer joins the show as Chief of Surgery later this month.

Happy New Year FOTB! Who quits Hell’s Kitchen? Crazy Ex Girlfriend brings heart
February 1st, 2019 under ABC, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Gordon Ramsay. [ Comments: none ]


It is time for the Lunar New Year on Fresh Off the Boat tonight at 8p in ABC and this year the Huangs are not celebrabaing alone. Julius (Reggie Lee), Elaine (Ming-Na Wen) and their son Horace (Jimmy O. Yang) will be joining the this year.

As soon as Julius and Horace get there, they get into a verbal fight that turns physical. They do this annually so that this way they can start the year off clean. When Louis (Randall Park) gets into a fight with one of his sons (Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler and Ian Chen), he decides to the same. Will it have the same effect on their father/son relationship?

They are not the only ones who are fighting, so are Jessica (Constance Wu) and her mother-in-law (Lucille Soong). Elaine thinks she can mend things between the two women, but she makes things worse. How much worse?

You don’t want to miss another great episode that also teaches about the Chinese New Year.


Then at 9p on Fox, things are really heating up in Hell’s Kitchen for the final four. The night starts off innocent enough with a challenge that has the final four cooks preparing a dish tableside for chefs to judge. It is a relaxing, yet awkward day prize for the winner of the challenge. Even the dinner service goes smootly as they each take a turn at running the line.

Then when it comes time to put two people up for elimination, one of the chefs put themselves up. Is it Bret? Mia? Motto? Or Ariel? Why are they doing it? How will Gordon Ramsay react? What does it mean for the finale?

You just have to tune in for a truly shocking episode because I ain’t going to tell you.


Also at 9p but over on The CW, it is time for the Crazy Ex Girlfriend to get wet. Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) convinces Greg (Skylar Astin) to go to a water park with her. Only thing is that he hates it. He hates everything but her. It is because he loves her that he suffered through it. When she realize that, they get into a big fight.

Rebecca has not been keeping up with her therapy and her doctors are worried about her. They have every reason to be worried. After her fight with Greg, she does the unthinkable and she knows she needs help. Will she do what they want her to do?

She is not the only one. Paula (Donna Lynne Champlin) has a lot on her plate: work, studying for the bar exam, her kids and everything else, and it is all catching up to her. She does not have time to stop even though her body is telling her to relax. What will she do?

Did I mention there is a really great solo for Greg tonight? His best one since I Gave You A UTI. For some reason, I feel like that was someone else? Because it was! But the point is, you will be singing this one for a while.

Just like the other songs. On that note, on April 5th after the series finale, The CW is going to air a concert special with the cast singing some of the fans’ favorite songs throughout the show’s run. I hope we get My First Penis and Heavy Boobs. What do you want to hear?

There is a lot to watch tonight!
January 14th, 2019 under ABC, Fox, Game Show Network, Joey Fatone, Mark-Paul Gosselaar. [ Comments: none ]


There is a lot of good stuff to watch tonight and the night starts early, 5:30p exact That is when Joey Fatone tries his hand of hosting a game show on GSN.

Common Knowledge asks 2 teams of three rounds of questions that should be common knowledge and the winning team goes home with $10,000. Sounds easy, but it is harder than you think. For the first round, each member guesses which of the multiple choices are the correct answer and they get more points for each member that gets it right. For the second round the whole team has to guess the answer as one. Thus, they get more points in this one, so anything can happen and anyone can win. Now it is time for the final round and they have to answer 7 answers correctly without getting one wrong. If they do it, they go home with 5 digits. If not, they go home with 0.

Not only is Common Knowledge fun to play along with, it is also fun to watch Fatone hosting it. He is a natural born game show host.


Then at 8p but over at Fox, The Resident is back. The episode picks up a little after the fall season finale.

Conrad (Matt Czuchry) and Nic (Emily VanCamp) are running into the hospital to find out how his father is doing during emergency life-saving surgery.

There is also still fallout around Chastain Park Memorial from Lane (Melina Kanakaredes) giving patients chemo treatment even though they did not need it. To make matters worse, she has just been released from jail for the murder of one of them. The first thing she does is visit Dr. Bell (Bruce Greenwood). He says that he is no longer going to help her and she blackmails him with something from his past. What is he going to do about it?

Meanwhile, Devon (Manish Dayal) is dealing with the fallout of his own after calling off his wedding at the wedding because he has feelings for another woman.

This is just a few of the lively moments from the episode where not everyone will make it to the end of the episode alive. Who dies and what ramifications will there be?


Then at 9p, The Passage debuts on Fox about how the ultimate cure can kill us all. Project Noah has come up with a cure that can rid the World of all diseases or it can it wipe out the human race. They have been testing it out on adults, but some of them have been turning into vampire like creatures. Therefore, they need a child to do the test on.

Amy Bellafonte (Saniyya Sidney), a young girl whose mother just died of a drug overdose and is now all alone in the World, is chosen as the subject. Project Noah hires Agent Brian Wolgast (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) to protect her. He lost a child of his own and feels a bond with Amy. Thus, he cannot let her be a test subject, and tries to do everything he can to protect her. Even if it means risking his own life.

He is on the run all by himself and Project Noah is using their best people to capture them. Can he save this girl that might the answer to all of our diseases or will they be caught and end the World? Each week, we will watch the two people who could save the World try to save themselves. All while learning what happens when we try to play Gd as we see the effects the cure has had on past test subjects.


Then at 10p, The Good Doctor is back on ABC. The episode picks up exactly where it left off with an unknown virus quarantining some of the doctors in the ER.

Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) is on the floor distracted by the sound of a buzzing lightbulb. Morgan (Fiona Gubelmann) is operating on a man’s bowel and needs his help. She cannot talk him out of it because she is busy with her hands in a man’s body, but she will try.

While they are doing that, Alex (Will Yun Lee) is watching his teenage son suffer an asthma attack from outside the ER and he cannot get in. Eventually, he breaks in and saves his son and calms Shaun down. That will last for just a few minutes because the virus is taking its toll on Allegra (Tamlyn Tomita). If they don’t figure out what the virus is soon, she will die. With death comes birth as Shaun and Morgan prepare to deliver a baby to a woman who is only 36 weeks along. Talk about getting a whole year of medical school in just one day. That is what they get, we get to watch it all and find out who will get out of there alive. Someone has to or we will not have a show.

Talking about life and death, Dr. Glassman (Richard Schiff) will find out if he still has cancer. Shaun was supposed to take him, so Lea (Paige Spara) has taken him instead. He is expecting the worse, and Lea asks him all about his disease. It is good for him to be with someone who is not a doctor who can help him look at the patient side of life. How will their wait together change both of their lives? That is if he has one.

It is an intense episode but shows why this show was last year’s break out it hit.

ABC wants to laugh a little more this season!
December 14th, 2018 under ABC, Anthony Anderson, The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]


ABC has had a sad fall, so they want to laugh a little more laughter in the spring. Therefore, they ordered some more episodes from four of their sitcoms. They asked Black-ish for two more and one extra ep from The Goldbergs, Single Parents and The Kids Are All Right.

Personally, I think we need more episodes of The Goldbergs, Single Parents and American Housewife because I cannot get enough of those shows and it is all about me.

I also think ABC jumped the gun on Kids because without The Conners as a lead in their ratings will be less than the amount of kids in their family!
