The Cool Kids ends its run with its funniest episode
May 10th, 2019 under David Alan Grier, Fox, Leslie Jordan, Vicki Lawrence. [ Comments: none ]


Vicki Lawrence announced today that Fox cancelled her highlarious show The Cool Kids. She wrote, “One last new episode of Cool Kids tonight. End of season 1, end of @thecoolkidsfox 😟 We have been cancelled. I’ve had a good #cry I’ll probably have another. I will miss #myboys” I will miss the four of them too. Even though, they had a crappy pilot, every episode after that got better and better.

Case in point, on tonight’s series finale at 8:30p. Hank (David Alan Grier), Charlie (Martin Mull) and Sid (Leslie Jordan) are going to celebrate their friendiversary and decide not to include Margaret (Lawrence). When she finds out that Sid was not their first choice, she decides to tell him. He gets all catty with his BFFs and joins the cat lady group with Margaret. She realizes he is better with their old friends and comes up with a plan to reunite them all. That is when it gets really funny. So funny, I scared my cat when I laughed out loud. And she did not even mind all the cats they had on the show. Oh and I don’t want to spoil anything but Jamie Farr has the most outrageously hysterical moment of the night.

I am sad this show is ending because it really made me happy every week. Unlike Last Man Standing which has not been as good on Fox. Could be because I hate the new Mandy, She is not as endearing as the original one. Like tonight’s episode, she is not ready to move out and her parents are doing everything in their power to get her to move. It is not like she is moving that far away. She can visit all the time.

The Cool Kids was not the only show to get the dreaded axe on Fox. They also pulled the plug on The Passage. I had to look up what show that was because I could not remember what it was. Do you?

Last Man Standing turns 150, The Cool Kids causes more mayhem

There was a time that it looked like Last Man Standing was not going to have a 150th episode because ABC cancelled it after 130 episodes. Then, a year later, Fox resurrected the comedy and tonight at 8p, it will celebrate its 150th episode!

Mandy (Molly McCock) is looking for an easy way to get her fashion career started, but her dad (Tim Allen) doesn’t think she knows what she is doing. Therefore, he takes her to his job at the Outdoor Man to meet a businesswoman (Melissa Peterman). He thinks she will shun his daughter, but the opposite happens. What is Mike going to do sabotage his daughter’s career?


Then at 8:30p, it is time for The Cool Kids to celebrate its 20th episode. Sid (Leslie Jordan) is avoiding his boyfriend (Jere Burns) because he thinks he is going to propose to him.

Margaret (Vicki Lawrence) on the other hand is going out with a Harvard man (Robert Pine) because she told him she went to Yale. Will he find out her secret?

Finally, Hank (David Alan Grier) is waiting for the results of his mole removal. Since the doctor did not call him back before 5p on Friday, he is convinced that he is dying. Charlie (Martin Mull) convinces him to break into their doctor’s office to get the results. What could go wrong besides everything?

All of this leads to a hilarious final moment that ties it all together. While The Cool Kids started off kind of slow, the show has really found its groove to be on the funniest on TV this season.

The Cool Kids is highlarious, Doom Patrol is theraputic
March 29th, 2019 under David Alan Grier, Leslie Jordan, Vicki Lawrence. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight’s episode of The Cool Kids on Fox at 8:30p is the show’s best one yet. And there have been plenty of greats ones.

Sid’s (Leslie Jordan) ex-wife (Jennifer Coolidge) comes to visit him and to meet his new boyfriend John (Jere Burns). Is she bitter that he lied to her during all of those years they were married?

Then Margaret (Vicki Lawrence) and Charlie (Martin Mull) are all excited to see Fleetwood Mac, but Hank (David Alan Grier) has the keys to the van. He wants to go to Costco, and nothing will stop him. Therefore, if they agree to go to Costco with him, he will take them to the concert. But there are rules, so many rules. Good thing Charlie has a bag full of edible Gummy Bears. Now you know why I said this episode is highlarious!


Over on DC Universe, Doom Patrol is back with another super episode.

The episode starts out with Cliff (Brendan Fraser) still messed up after finding out what is up with his daughter now. Therefore, he is still very upset about that and that is making him crazy. Cyborg (Joivan Wade) decides to help him and holds a group therapy session with all of the Doom Patrol members.

What does therapy start with? Your childhood! In this episode, we get to see what they were all like as children and how it shaped them to become the adults that they are today. We also learn what year they were kids and that gives us more of a perspective of how old they are.

Not only that, they all have major breakthroughs. What and how it will change them? Well, you just have to watch and see in the best superhero show on television. This is not like all those other Marvel and DC shows, it is so much better.

David Alan Grier thought no one would watch Seinfeld and Ace Ventura
January 28th, 2019 under David Alan Grier, Howard Stern. [ Comments: none ]


Many actors have turned down roles they have regretted. Others have auditioned for parts for things they never thought would see the light of day and they became huge hits. David Alan Grier has experienced both.

Back when he was working on In Living Color, Jim Carrey asked him to co-star in his little movie called Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and he turned it down. A short time later, he went to the premiere and watch the comedy next to his friend. Afterward, DAG thought no one is going to see this because it was just too crazy. Even Chris Rock agreed with him. As we know, both of them were way off.

That was not the only time he was way off. Grier told Howard Stern today, that he also auditioned for Seinfeld. During the tryout, he “thought this show is going to suck.” Thus, he did not care if he got the role of George Costanza that eventually went to Jason Alexander.

Once again he was wrong. One role he was right not to say no to was The Carmichael Show. One of the greatest shows ever to grace our televisions.

Imagine how different Grier’s career would have been if he did not turn down or laugh off all of these roles. Considering none of the stars of those projects did Dancing with the Stars, I think we have our answer.

BTW I wonder how he felt when he auditioned for his current show The Cool Kids. Which I like even though it had a really bad pilot.
