Problems get solved and new ones start on Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist and Good Girls
April 18th, 2021 under NBC, Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight at 9p on NBC”S Zoey Extraordinary Playlist, Zoey (Jane Levy) is tackling one of her hardest cases yet. Her sister-in-law is depressed, but Emily (Alice Lee) doesn’t want to talk about it. Zoey and her brother, David (Andrew Leeds), are doing everything they can to get her to open up. Will Zoey hear her heart song before it is too late?

Zoey is so busy taking care of everyone else that there is one person she is neglecting. That person is her new boyfriend, Simon (John Clarence Stewart). If Zoey doesn’t start paying attention to him, she might lose him.

Her mom (Mary Steenburgen) is dealing with her lost identity since her husband died. Therefore she calls her friend (Bernadette Peters) to help find out who she is now. Together they come up with a lot of new identities for her during a drunken night. They are not the only ones who will be having a much-needed night out. What happens when the sun comes up?

It leads to a final moment you do not want to miss.

Then at 10p, the Good Girls hold up a jewelry store. Why did Beth (Christina Hendricks), Annie (Mae Whitman), and Ruby (Retta) do it? They have their reasons, and their need for money is the biggest one. How far will they go to get it? As you can see, Beth is willing to go all the way…

Zoey’s power gets freaky on Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, The Good Girls babysit
April 11th, 2021 under NBC, Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight at 9p on NBC’s Zoey Extraordinary Playlist, Mo (Alex Newell) takes Zoey (Jane Levy) to see a Medium to communicate with her dad. Zoey doesn’t believe in the Medium until her powers go all out whack.

She goes to see Max (Skylar Astin), and he seems happy. That is until he sings her the most gut-wrenching ballad. So powerful, you will feel it at the bottom of your soul. He says he is happy, but the heart song doesn’t tell the same story. As her day goes on, she starts to notice that everyone is singing the wrong tune.

Zoey confronts the Medium, but is she the one at fault? Zoey has to find out, so she can help the right people. Especially the person who belongs to Max’s heart song before it is too late.

Tonight’s episode is my favorite one yet. Not because it has the most songs, but because it is fun watching Mo and her trying to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. It is a fast-paced episode with a lot of fun melodies to tell the story. That is if you can figure out whose story is who.

Then at 10p, the Good Girs babysit because a baby is never too young to learn about crime. Well, not for that reason.

Annie (Mae Whitman) volunteers to babysit her ex-husband’s baby. It seems like an easy task until Manny (Manny Montana) tells her, Beth (Christina Hendricks), and Ruby (Retta) that he has something he needs them to do now. When Manny tells you, you have to something now, you do it. Even if you are babysitting an innocent baby.

How will their assignment go? Will the baby get out of this unscathed? All of this leads to a jaw-dropping final moment you cannot miss.

That is the thing I love most about the female-empowering drama, you never know what is going to happen next.

Mr. Mayor was elected for a second season
March 22nd, 2021 under NBC, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen. [ Comments: none ]

NBC has been canceling a lot of comedies recently like Superstore, and I feared that Mr. Mayor would be one of them. Thankfully, my gut was wrong because they picked it up for a second season today.

“We’ve loved our collaboration with NBC on the first season of ‘Mr. Mayor’ and are excited to continue working with our fantastic cast, led by the incomparable Ted Danson and Holly Hunter,” said Erin Underhill, President, Universal Television.” We can’t wait to see what Tina Fey, Robert Carlock and our talented producing team have in store for Mayor Bremer and his rag-tag team of civil servants.”

Danson plays a billboard mogul who runs for mayor of LA when the former one goes crazy and resigns. Since he is so likable, he gets elected job. However, he doesn’t know what he is doing. He keeps screwing up, but then he saves the day with the help of his staff played by Holly Hunter, Vella Lovell, Mike Cabellon, Bobby Moynihan, and his daughter (Kyla Kennedy).

Mr. Mayor is a quick-witted show, and if you blink, you might miss a joke or two. It is the type of sitcom that you have to watch multiple times in order to catch all of the jokes. And even then, you might miss a few because some of them are so subtle. That is why it is a critical darling, as darling at Danson himself.

As excited as I am about the renewal, I still have an issue with the shoe. That billboard was hung in the town where I live, and it is a sore point for us. We have a lake in Toluca Lake, but it is not accessible to most of the residents because it is on the snooty golf course that won’t let us in to see it. We hate to be reminded of that. However, it did makes us laugh, then cry.

Good Girls is back and they are even better at being bad
March 7th, 2021 under NBC. [ Comments: none ]


Good Girls is back on NBC tonight at 10p for season 4, and trouble keeps finding them. However, they always find a way out of it. Well, almost always…

Beth (Christina Hendricks) and her husband, Dean (Matthew Lillard), are preparing to open their hot tub store. There is still a lot that needs to be done before the city will give them the OK. There is only one problem, Rio (Manny Montana) needs his laundered money. He tells Beth if she doesn’t get him the money ASAP, he will turn over the gun that has her fingerprints on it. The one he used to kill her co-worker. Did I mention that they found her body? Therefore, Beth really needs to get him that money now or else.

Dean and Beth open the store, but they run into a problem. Can they get themselves out of it? Especially since they are being investigated by the team of feds led by Dave (Jonathan Silverman).

Talking about Weekend at Bernie’s, Andrew McCarthy is back as the hitman that Beth hired to kill Rio. He keeps finding ways to delay the murder because he is in love with Beth. Who isn’t?

Those are Beth’s problems; her literal partners in crime have their own issues. Ruby (Retta) and Stanley’s (Reno Wilson) son is having problems in school, and it is going to cost them a lot of money. Money that will cause her to need more from Beth. Annie (Mae Whitman) is also having problems with her son. However, they can’t be solved by money.

In the coming weeks, they will run into more problems that money can’t solve. How will they get out of it? They always find a way. However, their solutions always get them into more problems which is why we have season 4.

I can’t wait to see what happens next, especially after one of them is arrested. But I said too much…

Seriously, over the next few weeks, the show that empowers women is going to be hit with some really tough counterprogramming. It is going to need you to watch it live, so it can keep up the ratings. How hard is it to stay up on Sunday night? Now that we don’t have to drive to work on Mondays anymore.

Finally, I have one complaint about this season. How can you have McCarthy and Silverman on the same show and not have them share some screen time?

Are Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd leaving SNL?
February 23rd, 2021 under Kenan Thompson, NBC, Saturday Night Live. [ Comments: 5 ]


Last week, Kenan Thompson’s NBC show debuted to really good numbers? So does that mean that he and his Saturday Night Live and Kenan co-star Chris Redd are ready to leave New York for Hollywood full time?

“I think we are living in a different time. There used to be a time when people would leave the show and go into their careers,” Kenan said at the NBC TCA Winter Press Day. “But I’m of the same kind of thinking, basically, where I think you can, kind of, do both as long as you can, and then the departure comes in a natural sort of way. Then so be it or whatever.”

Redd agreed, “Well, not much goes into it because I haven’t decided to leave either. So, I’m just having fun being able to create with one of my best friends and also be able to still go and do sketch, and I love sketch. So, I don’t really see it as an exit strategy. I just, kind of, see it as another way to create. So that’s the best answer I think I can give you.”

I say this is great news. SNL can lose a lot of their Not-Ready-For-Primetime-Players, but they cannot afford to lose the two that are working in primetime.

Now, let’s talk about their primetime show that airs Tuesdays at 8:30p. If you are not watching Kenan, then you are missing out on the funniest new comedy of the year. Kenan deserves all the success he gets, and this is a sitcom that is worthy of him.
