BTWF: Mayim Bialik in Pumpkinhead

Before Mayim Bialik had two brothers on Blossom, she had two of each in Pumpkinhead. She looks the same now as she did when she was 11 in that 1988 movie.

What is, Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings will host Jeopardy for the rest of 2021.

Jeopardy has chosen stability and named two temporary hosts for the rest of 2021. They are Mayim Bialik and Ken Jennings.

Bialik is currently taping episodes until November 5th, Jennings will go next, and they will switch out as their schedules allow. Bialik was already attached to do the second season of Call Me Kat for Fox when all of this started to happen.

I can’t blame the game show’s decision. After all, they lost their permanent host, who was also their EP, in less than two weeks. The viewers need normalcy since they are still grieving Alex Trebek’s death. More importantly, so does the crew.

Are you happy with their choice? I still want to see Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo and Neil deGrasse Tyson get an audition.

What is, Jeopardy is going with two hosts?

Jeopardy has been on the search for a new host, and today they named the two people who will replace the late Alex Trebek. The daily host is Executive Producer Mike Richards, while the host of the primetime special National College Championship is going to Mayim Bialik.

“We are thrilled to begin the next chapter of America’s Favorite Quiz Show with Mike hosting our daily show and Mayim hosting new versions of Jeopardy!,” Ravi Ahuja, chairman of Global Television Studios and Corporate Development for Sony Pictures said to The Hollywood Reporter. “We took this decision incredibly seriously. A tremendous amount of work and deliberation has gone into it, perhaps more than has ever gone into the selection of hosts for a show – deservedly so because it’s Jeopardy! and we are following the incomparable Alex Trebek. A senior group of Sony Pictures Television executives pored over footage from every episode, reviewed research from multiple panels and focus groups, and got valuable input from our key partners and Jeopardy! viewers.”

Ahuja continued, “We knew early on that we wanted to divide the hosting responsibilities and it became very clear that Mike and Mayim were the undeniable choices. They were both at the top of our research and analysis. Mike is a unique talent, at ease behind the podium and a double threat as producer and host. Mayim has a wonderful energy, an innate sense of the game, and an authentic curiosity that naturally represents the Jeopardy! brand. We are excited to get to work with them both and are confident that they will carry on the legacy of this iconic show.”

What do you think of Richards as the new host? He reminds me of vanilla and Wonder Bread. I am not saying that because he is white, I am saying it because he is boring and forgettable.

Bialik is Bialik, you either like her, or you don’t. I don’t.

Ellen Pompeo will whine about doing another season of Grey’s Anatomy

ABC announced today that Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 will be back for another season.

That means Ellen Pompeo will keep us guessing all season long if she will do another season for more money than she deserves. If she quits or the show gets cancelled, then her career is over. Can you see her found anything but Grey’s? She has barely don’t anything else in the 17 years?

Would you watch Grey’s with Meredith?

I will say something nice. At least Station 19 is returning. Now can they stop doing those crossovers that aren’t really crossovers?

UPDATE: Fox picked up Call Me Kat with Mayim Bialik for a second season. Not to be catty, but that show is so not funny. I tried 5 episodes, and even my cat told me to stop. If they want to get me to watch, just live stream kitties in the Cat Cafe. Then I will be hooked.

UPDATE 2: Fox cancelled the serial killer procedural Prodigal Son after two seasons.

Call Me Kat is purrfect
January 3rd, 2021 under Fox, Leslie Jordan, Mayim Bialik. [ Comments: none ]


Mayim Bialik is back with her own sitcom on Fox tonight at 8p (or after the football game, depending on where you live). Bialik plays Kat, a 39-year-old single woman who owns a cat cafe in Call Me Kat.

Kat lives on her own above her cat cafe. Her mom (Swoosie Kurtz) would love her daughter to stop being the crazy cat lady and get married like Kat’s best friend Tara (Vanessa Lachey). In the pilot episode, Tara is renewing her vows, and she asked Kat to bring a plus one. Kat asks one of her workers from the cafe to go with her. Phil (Leslie Jordan) is getting over a breakup with his boyfriend, so he is more than willing to go with his boss. However, Kat’s college crush, Max (Cheyenne Jackson), is back in town working at the bar by her cafe, and she would rather go with him to the wedding. What Kat doesn’t know is that Max is dating another woman from Paris. What will Kat do when she finds out that his girlfriend is also in town?

Thankfully, Kat can confide in her other employee Randi (Kyla Pratt). Randi is going to do everything in her power to get Kat to change. Something Kat will have to do because her mother won’t stop fixing her up on dates. Dates she doesn’t want because all she wants to do is date Max. Does he want to date her? Kat will do everything she can to find out.

Did I mention there are cats on the show? I mean, this is a show about a cat cafe, so we have to have kitties. They just make this sitcom even more meowvelous.

That and the cast play off of each purrfectly. How can you not have comedy tuna with Leslie Jordan and Swoosie Kurtz on the show. They always bring the funny, no matter what they do.

Because of all of the above, you will be drawn to Call Me Kat like a cat is drawn to catnip.
