ABC picked up four shows and cancels as many
May 14th, 2021 under ABC, American Housewife. [ Comments: none ]

ABC is adding four new shows to their lineup, including a Wonder Years reboot starring Dulé Hill as the dad and Don Cheadle as the narrator. Then they are getting schooled (why did they cancel that show) with Abbott Elementary, a workplace comedy at a school that stars Tyler James Williams, Lisa Anne Walter, and Sheryl Lee Ralph. Next up is Queens, which brings back bandmates, who are now in their 40s, hoping to recapture their success. It stars Eve and Brandy. Finally, there is Maggie, a show about a psychic who sees her future and decides to live in the present.

Those are the shows you can watch next season. Unfortunately, you will not be able to watch American Housewife, Rebel, For Life, and Mixed-ish anymore because they were all cancelled.

ABC really screwed up with American Housewife. They had a darling show, but they never knew how to promote it. The network also kept changing its timeslot, so you never knew when it was on. It is a real shame because it was a heartwarming comedy that deserved better. Just like Mixed-ish, which is a better show than Black-ish. I said it, and I meant it.


ABC is ready to make us laugh again in October
September 10th, 2020 under American Housewife, Anthony Anderson, The Goldbergs. [ Comments: none ]

The networks let us know when their unscripted shows would be back. Today, ABC filled us in when their sitcoms will be hitting the airwaves.

The Goldbergs is paying tribute to Airplane in their season premiere episode on October 21st. On that night, they will air two episodes. Then at 9p, The Conners are back on the couch. They are followed at 9:30p by Black-ish that almost didn’t premiere in the fall.

Then a week later, American Housewife will join the Wednesday lineup at 8:30p.

I don’t know who is happier about this news, me or my DVR. The latter has been feeling neglected because there is nothing for it to record.


BTWF: Diedrich Bader for Bud Dry
June 1st, 2020 under American Housewife, Before They Were Famous. [ Comments: none ]

Before Diedrich Bader was married to the perfect American Housewife, he needed to drown his sorrows in Bud Dry to get over being dumped. How sweet was the 24-year-old in that 1991 commercial?


Diedrich Bader wears a tuxedo to the DMV
February 21st, 2020 under American Housewife. [ Comments: none ]

When you and I go to the DMV, we wear comfortable clothes because we know we are about to go through torture for several hours. However, we are not Diedrich Bader. The actor wore a tuxedo for his visit to the Department of Motor Vehicles. Why? He says, “Seemed funnier when I thought of it.” I think it is high-larious. It also feels like something his character Oswald from The Drew Carey Show would do.

I really hope that he was there to take a photo for his RealID. Can you imagine the strange looks he will get from all of the TSA agents when they look at it? Now that I think of it, his plan was brilliant. Since I go to the same DMV as him, I am going to wear a gown when I go to get my photo done. They will be used to it by then.

And I cannot wait to get used to American Housewife airing in Modern Family’s timeslot starting on April 15th. I love that sitcom as much as I love looking at Bader in a tux!


Lots of changes coming to American Housewife
September 27th, 2019 under American Housewife. [ Comments: none ]

American Housewife is back tonight at 9p on its new night and there some changes coming for the Ottos.

First off, they are getting a new car. Now that Anna-Kat is older, they no longer need a mini-van. They just have to clean it up and out. Katie (Katy Mixon) and Greg (Diedrich Bader) decide to let Taylor (Meg Donnelly) handle cleaning the car. When she screws it up, her parents think it is about time she stops being a screwup. Therefore, they give her a list of things to do. How many of them will she screw up?

Unlike her oldest sibling, Anna-Kat (Julia Butters) is not screwing up as much. So much so, the school feels it is time for her to be with normal kids throughout her day. Katie doesn’t like that there is not someone looking out for her baby girl. Therefore, she comes up with a way to watch her even when she is not there. Will Anna-Kat find out?

Finally, there is the middle child Oliver. When his ballet dreams are crushed, ruining his chances to get into Harvard, he comes up with another way to get in. One that is inspired by the likes of Lori Loughlin. His parents tell him he needs to find another way to get in, but he thinks this is on the only way it will happen.

The Ottos have their work cut out for them this season and I cannot wait to see how they do on their new night. They are a good fit with Fresh Off of the Boat, so that is something going for their show. That and it is a really funny sitcom that the whole family can watch together. We need more of those.
