Must See TV is back on NBC with two new funny comedies!
September 26th, 2019 under Kal Penn, Kristen Bell, NBC, Superstore, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen. [ Comments: none ]


NBC is known for Must See TV on Thursdays and this season they are not disappointing. They start it off at 8p with Superstore. The season premiere picks up a few hours after the season finale when Mateo (Nico Santos) was taken away by ICE.

Jonah (Ben Feldman) has gotten everyone together from Cloud 9 for a vigil for Mateo. Since no one knows what to do, they sing a song that is perfect for them. You have to see it, to believe. That and to find out that Lauren Ash, who plays Dina, can really sing. You go girl.

Now, it is time for everyone to get back to work. Corporate has sent over a new worker to replace Mateo and everyone hates Glen with one “n”. Glenn (Mark McKinney) with two “n’s” hates him the most. Therefore, when they come up with a way to get rid of him, he is all for it.

Meanwhile, Dina is still mad at Garrett (Colton Dunn) for letting her birds accidentally go free, so she continues to torture him. He feels bad, but that is not good enough for her.

Talking about couples, Sandra (Kaliko Kauahi) wants to let everyone know that she is engaged but no one will let her talk.

When it comes to talking, Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom) has not spoken to her BFF since he was taken away. It is just too hard for her. Amy (America Ferrera) decides to kidnap her co-worker and take her to see their friend. Will she go inside?

All of this leads to a moment that will have everyone afraid, very afraid.

If working at a Big Box store was as fun as they make it look on Superstore, we would all be working at one!


Then at 8:30p, Bradley Whitford is back for another comedy on NBC. Perfect Harmony is something to sing about.

Arthur Cochran (Whitford) is the former chair of the music department at Princeton. After his wife died, he pretty much lost his will to live. He returns to her hometown to bury in her in the cemetery at the church she loved, but he is told there is no room. Therefore, he has come to confront them to let her in.

On the way there, the very drunk professor stops in front of another church with a choir rehearsing. They are so bad that he goes in to tell all of them how awful they are. When he is done, he passes out.

The next day, when he wakes up, and they ask him to coach their choir. He doesn’t want to do it, but then he gets his reason. Now he has to work on them to make them all singers whether they like what he says or not.

Ginny (Anna Camp) is a single mom, who is a mother to the group. She is also just so gosh darn nice. Adams (Tymberlee Hill) is not that nice, so she does not want to take Arthur’s advice. Jax is adopted and he is the Kumbaya one of the group. Wayne (Will Greenberg) takes a lot of crap Arthur, but he has potential. Although, not as much as Shep (Geno Segers) who has the deepest voice you will ever hear.

They are a dysfunctional bunch, but together they make beautiful music. That is why this and Carol’s Second Act are tied for my favorite new comedies with Sunnyside in a close second place.


Then at 9p, The Good Place begins its final season. Michael (Ted Danson) and Eleanor (Kristen Bell) are continuing to welcome the four new humans to The Good Place. They know that these four individuals are there to antagonize them. However, they have to work through it to save the human race.

How will Tahani (Jameela Jamil) deal with her gossip columnist arch-nemesis? Jason wants to be with Janet (Manny Jacinto) but she told him no because the experiment is too important. Meanwhile, Janet is busy dealing with all the new people’s request. Especially, the new guy who is there to torture Eleanor. She has enough problems now that Chidi’s (William Jackson Harper) memory has been erased and he does not remember her.

While things are not going smoothly for them, things are going better off down in the Bad Place. Or are they?

You don’t want to miss as our Fab Four tries to acclimate the new kids into their world with a big old party.

A sad party is happening over here because I don’t want this show to end.


Finally at 9:30p, Kal Penn is an elected official in Sunnyside. Scratch that, he is an impeached city councilman for Sunnyside in Queens, NY.

When Garrett Modi (Penn) first ran for office, he had dreams of helping the community. Fifteen years later, he is living in his office because his girlfriend kicked him out, he has no money and he has just been fired from his job. He moves in with his sister, Mallory (Kiran Deol) and she tells him to get a job.

He gets a call to meet some people at a bar to help them pass their citizenship test so they can become Americans. When all of his contacts fails, he decides to help them himself. Luckily, two of his students are really rich, so they throw money his way.

Those two students are siblings, Jim Hoa (Joel Kim Booster) and Mel Lin (Poppy Liu). We do not know where they are from because they won’t say. While they have lots of money, Griselda (Diana-Maria Riva) does not. The Dominican has so many jobs, no one can possibly count them all. Hakim (Samba Schutte) is a taxi driver from Ethiopia. Finally, there is Brady (Moses Storm), he just found out he is from Moldovia and that he was not born in America. His mother brought him here when he was two and she never told him. After he gets caught, the government told him to become a citizen or go back. Since he does not know where Moldavia is, he opts to become an American. Which is why he needs Garrett’s help.

Each week, Garrett will work with them to make sure they get to live the America Dream. Granted the brother and sister are already living all of their dreams and most other people’s. Can Garrett teach them all about the good ole USA?

You are going to want to watch the show that reminds us that we are all immigrants in America. You don’t have to be born here to love America. You just have to live hear to learn you love it! Like we will love this show.

Mary Steenburgen says we are getting another Book Club
June 12th, 2019 under Andy Cohen, Candice Bergen, Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen. [ Comments: none ]


Sometimes when actors makes a movie, they become friends for life. That is exactly what happened to Mary Steenburgen, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Diane Keaton when they made Book Club.

The four women have continued their friendship even off camera and met a few times since the enjoyable 2018 film came out. In fact, they even got together at Keaton’s house this weekend. Andy Cohen, like me, loves seeing the ladies together, so today he asked Mrs. Ted Danson about their dinner date on his radio show. That is when she revealed they are doing a sequel to their feature.

While that is great news for fans of the movie, I would rather see it be a series. I think it would be better if they took up a new book every week for like 10 of them. Wouldn’t it be fun to see how the Twilight series would inspire them? Maybe even be a little naughty and read The Art of the Deal. I don’t think the actresses would allow that. However, they could have fun with Kardashian Konfidential.

No word, which of the men will be back, but I have a feeling we will be seeing them again. Which makes me so very happy. If you have not seen Book Club, you should definitely watch it. It is just a sweet movie about friends being there for you whenever you need them.

Oh fork, this is major bullshirt, The Good Place is ending this season
June 8th, 2019 under Kristen Bell, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen. [ Comments: none ]


There are hundreds of television shows being produced these days and The Good Place is one of the best of the bunch. However, as they say, “All good things must come to an end.” Sadly, that is the case for this comedy.

Michael Shur, who created this show, explained his decision to say goodbye the good and bad place.

After The Good Place was picked up for season two, the writing staff and I began to map out, as best we could, the trajectory of the show. Given the ideas we wanted to explore, and the pace at which we wanted to present those ideas, I began to feel like four seasons—just over 50 episodes—was the right lifespan. At times over the past few years we’ve been tempted to go beyond four seasons, but mostly because making this show is a rare, creatively fulfilling joy, and at the end of the day, we don’t want to tread water just because the water is so warm and pleasant. As such, the upcoming fourth season will be our last.

I will be forever grateful to NBC and Universal TV for letting us make The Good Place, and for letting us end it on our own schedule. I will also be forever grateful to the creative team, both on-screen and off, for the work and decimation to a very weird idea. We ask the question very frequently, on this show, what do we owe to each other? The answer, for me, is: I owe all of you a whole lot.

We look forward to a great final season airing this fall.

I thought that watching Ted Danson flossing would bring a smile to my face after this news, but it did not work. I don’t want this show to end. Can’t they take something else like Grey’s Anatomy or NCIS?

Is Book Club 2 happening?
April 12th, 2019 under Candice Bergen, Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen. [ Comments: none ]


Book Club was last year’s sleeper hit and yesterday the film’s stars got together. Does that mean that Candice Bergin, Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda and Mary Steenburgen are letting us know that they are working on a sequel? Sadly, nope. It just means that made a friendship that lasted long after they were done filming.

Personally, I think they should do a series based on the movie and each week they take on a new book that changes their lives. Imagine if they took on a murder mystery book where four friends vow to kill one of their lovers, but they don’t know which one actually do the crime. Now they are all suspicious of each other after Andy Garcia is injured by mysterious means. I would watch, wouldn’t you?

Does Ted Danson think that The Good Place has nailed heaven?
January 16th, 2019 under Jimmy Kimmel, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen. [ Comments: none ]


Ted Danson was on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday and he started off his appearance with something heavenly. He let us know if he can still do The Floss like in that viral video. Yes, he can, but do not expect to see him doing it too often because he says it hurts. Which is a shame because he is so good at it.

Talking about good, he also told the ABC host if he thinks his show The Good Place could possibly be an accurate take on the afterlife. Danson said, “Secretly, I think, when we get up to heaven, Gd is going to say, ‘You guys nailed it.'” I hope it is because I am going to the Bad Place and they make it look so much better than all those movies that depict as torture.

Does he think he is going to go to The Good Place? He says he is living his best life now. He loves his job and he loves going to work. To him, it is like a Belinda Carlisle song, Heaven is a Place on Earth.

Seriously, you can tell he is enjoying life. I say that because try watching this video and not smiling throughout it all. You cannot help but to get sucked into his happiness and that one of the many amazing traits about him. He is a truly nice man. I, for some reason, thought he would be a jerk, but I was pleasantly surprised that he is one of the nicest actors I have met in Hollywood. And it was sincere, no BS. He truly is a WYSIWYG. Totally down to earth which is probably while he is living in the now and not for the afterlife.
