November 7th, 2017 under Before They Were Famous, The Middle. [ Comments: none ]

Before Neil Flynn was a manager at the quarry on The Middle, he was cop in Kung Fu: The Next Generation. He looks the same now as he did when he was 26 in at that failed 1987 pilot.


It is terrific Tuesdays on ABC!
October 3rd, 2017 under ABC, The Middle. [ Comments: none ]

ABC has changed up their Tuesday lineup this season and it is a winner. So much so, I am going to call it Tuesrific!

The night starts off at 8p with the final season of The Middle. Something I am not OK with, but I will enjoy the final episodes as we have them.

The season premiere picks up as the end of the summer and Axl (Charlie McDermott) and his man bun is back from Europe. He is much more lax and wants his stressed out family to relax too. His mom (Patricia Heaton) is stressed out about finding something for the Hecks to put in the town’s time capsule. Sue (Eden Sher) is stressed that she did not do enough this summer, so she is trying to pack it all in in three days. His dad (Neill Flynn) is stressed because he wants his oldest child to get a job and Axl has no intention of doing so. Finally, Brick (Atticus Shaffer) is stressed because he wants to break up with his girlfriend and does not know how to do it.

Will Axl be stressed again by the end of the day or will his family be more lax? You will have to watch this sitcom’s enjoyable final season premiere to find out.

Then at 8:30p, Fresh Off the Boat is back and The Huangs have no where to live. Honey (Chelsey Crisp) invites them to live with her until they find a place, but they are the easiest people to live with. Honey does her best to put up with them, and she looks she about the break. Jessica (Constance Wu) does not feel the tension between them, and she invites her hostess to be her partner on Wheel of Fortune with her for Best Friends Week. That is when Honey finally loses it, and confronts her “best friend,” what happens next is something you do not want to miss. That and Pat Sajak and Vanna White also fighting.

Meanwhile Eddie and Honey’s stepdaughter, Nicole (Luna Blaise) get really close and she confesses something to him. How will react to it? You do not want to miss their special moment or the show in general. Oh and Michael Bolton is back!

Then at 9:30p after Black-ish, The Mayor makes its debut. Courtney Rose (Brandon Micheal Hall) is a Rapper who decides to run for mayor of Fort Grey to promote his music. Although that is his intention, he actually proves himself to be a good candidate for the job. So good, he wins the election. Is he up for the job?

His mom (Yvette Nicole Brown) and his high school nemesis Val (Lea Michele), who becomes his right hand woman, will do their best to get him into shape for the job that he is so not prepared to do. Will they be able to do it? Will he step up to his new responsibility? You just have to check out this endearing half hour show to find out. By the end of the episode you will be voting to watch this show every week.

Then at 10p, the night concludes with Kevin (Probably) Saves the World. Kevin (Jason Ritter) is aimless and he returns home to live with his widowed sister, Amy (JoAnna Garcia Swisher) and her daughter, Reese (Chloe East), who is still not over her father’s death. She also is not a fan of her uncle who was not there for her when her dad died.

One night Amy is called away and Kevin is stuck taking care of niece. As the two of them are looking outside they see a light shoot through the sky. They go to investigate and Kevin makes the mistake of touching it. It throws him backwards and causes him to lose time. Not only that, he starts seeing Yvette (Kimberly Hebert Gregory), an angel who tells him he is the last messenger for his generation and he needs to recruit the new messengers. He doesn’t feel very special, but he has been chosen to be that way. Little by little, he is going to feel that way and with that you have a show that is full of so much heart and joy. Something we all
need these days.


The Middle is coming to an end
August 2nd, 2017 under The Middle. [ Comments: none ]

ABC announced today that this season of The Middle will be its last. The show’s creators, Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline, “Last year we sat down with our cast and made the bittersweet decision together that in this ninth season it is time to bring the Hecks’ story to a close. It’s been an amazing run, a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we’re looking forward to having an entire year to say goodbye.” Then they added, “Plus, we wanted to go out before too many people knew we were on the air.”

I am really sad to see this show go. Besides being sweet, Mike Heck gives the best father speeches ever on television. The way he talks to his kids, is what every child wants to hear their dad to say to them. I will miss those inspirational chats.


Heck yeah, The Middle picked up for a 9th season!
January 25th, 2017 under The Middle. [ Comments: none ]

Most years, ABC waits until the final second to renew The Middle. Not this year because it is the first script show on the Alphabet network to be renewed for another season. It’s 9th!
Channing Dungey, president, ABC Entertainment, explained her decision as, “‘The Middle’ has been one of the network’s most consistent performers and helped us to launch a whole new night of comedy when it moved to Tuesdays this season.” Because of the sucess that it has had on the other shows on its new night, I wouldn’t be surprised if ABC picked up American Housewife and Fresh Off the Boat, the two shows that air directly afterwards, in a very short time. I also expect ABC to renew its 4 Wednesday comedies, The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family and Black-ish, too. Along with Friday’s Last Man Standing and Dr Ken.
When it comes to The Middle, this family sitcom has the best father on television. The stuff they write for Neil Flynn and the way he delivers it, is the best father to child speeches I have ever seen on television. I have grown up on family shows my whole life, so when I say it is the tops, I know what I am talking about. Why this show isn’t recognized more for its heartwarming writing and acting is beyond me. You should watch it because I promise you won’t be disappointed!


What to watch tonight The Middle, American Housewife, FOTB, The Real O’Neals and Chicago Fire
October 11th, 2016 under ABC, American Housewife, Katy Mixon, NBC, The Middle. [ Comments: none ]

The Middle is finally back on ABC tonight at 8p and there are more changes besides its new night. Sue Heck (Eden Sher) is back from her summer working at Dollywood and she is a different woman. Brick (Atticus Shaffer) is starting high school and he is trying to be a new man. Axl (Charlie McDermott) on the other has a new girl in his life and no one likes her.
The one thing that hasn’t changes is how funny this show is.

Then at 8:30p, American Housewife debuts and she fits in perfectly on Tuesday nights. Katie (Katy Mixon) is a married housewife with three kids renting in the ritzy Westport, Ct. The women are all skinny and perfect and Katie is not. Now that the second fattest woman is moving to Vermont, she will be the second fattest woman in Westport. Something she will do hardest to stop from happening. She will recruit her supportive husband (Diedrich Bader) to help her on the mission and her young daughter Anna-Kat (Julia Butters) that has fitting in issues. Her older daughter Taylor (Meg Donnelly) blossomed over the summer and now Katie is afraid she will turn into one of them. Her son Harrison (Daniel DiMaggio) already has. She has her hands full with them, but some how she makes it work. And this show doesn’t have to work on the humor because it comes naturally

Then at 9p, Fresh Off The Boat is heading to Taiwan for Louis (Randall Park) brother’s (Ken Jeong) wedding. For Louis and Jessica (Constance Wu) it is going home and for their kids it is experiencing the place they come from. Eddie (Hudson Yang) doesn’t want to be there, he just wants to be with his girlfriend. He told her he would fax her every day, but he can’t seem to find one. When he finally returns home, she tells him it’s over.
Tonight’s episode is beyond special because it is the first scripted show to go to Taiwan. Therefore, it is cool to see the country through their eyes.

Then at 9:30p, The Real O’Neals are back and they want to let you know it is Gay friendly after Noah Galvin’s controversial interview. Therefore they start it out with a Gay Pride parade and him calling up Lance Bass who calls Jane Lynch who calls Tyler Oakley who calls RuPual. If that is not enough, then his character starting an LGBT group should do it for you.
But not for me. I am like an elephant and don’t forget.

Finally at 10p but over on NBC, Chicago Fire is back and it is just as hot as ever. Now that Dawson is a mom (Monica Raymund) firefighting isn’t the same for her. She has some decisions to make. A decision that might come easier when Jimmy (Steven R. McQueen) tells off the Chief (Eamonn Walker). It isn’t all serious, someone has been writing fan faction about the firehouse and they have to figure out who is doing. All this leads to the shocking final seconds that will change someone’s life forever.
