Summer Fun On NBC

Summer Fun On NBC Hmm… maybe? Let’s just see about that, heh!

America’s Got Talent Two Hour Season premiere, Tuesday June 5th 9/8c

The second season premiers with a new host, Jerry Springer, joining the judges Piers Morgan, David Hasselhoff and another new addition Sharon Osbourne, for an exciting season where you help decide the winner! Who is the next talented American?

Okay wait, David Hasselhoff… Why? And Jerry Springer…. No way. I do not have a good feeling about this. Not. Even. A. Little. At least there is one non-objectionable judge on the panel, and that is Sharon Osbourne. Oh my g-d! Yes! I like her.

But, I can’t even begin to imagine what will happen when the American public who manages to land on this show, doesn’t have any …um, er… how you say….talent. (Because c’mon, let’s face it, most of us don’t.)

With Springer at the helm…I wonder, will the live audience members be given metal folding chairs to hurl at the failing contestants? Or, will Hasselhoff decide to go off the booze free wagon on raw footage again? Maybe, Ozzy Osbourne will be making guest appearances? Wow. I hope Ozzy decides to follow any voted, or kicked off, contestant to their homes, only to taunt them and throw hams in their pools.

Because then, we’d have a show. Seriously, I would rather watch a show called, “Just Sharon Osborne”. Mkay….

Sorry NBC, you know I love you, but you sadly, missed the mark on this one.

The Big Bang Theory, Monday Nights at 8:30pm on CBS

The Big Bang Theory stars Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki (mostly known for his role as David on Roseanne) as brilliant theoretical physicists who meet a woman, Kaley Cuoco, who shows them just how little they know about real life.

Video link can be found HERE

I love the fact that nerds are taking over, however there was nothing about this comedy that grabbed me. I may take my chances and watch a full episode and report back later. But simply based off the video I am not setting any reminders or marking my calendar.

The Rules For Starting Over

Brought to you by the Farrelly Brothers, the creators of Dumb & Dumber and There’s Something About Mary, comes another new situation comedy on FOX. The Rules For Starting Over is set in Boston, about a group of four newly single friends, who learn some pretty painful lessons about having to start over in their 30’s. They have all been divorced and have to go back to the dating scene again. But “dating” in your twenties, is much different then “dating” in your thirties. All of the characters are looking for love, and want to get remarried, that is, if they could just find their true loves.

You can watch the video preview for the show HERE

I know just how miserable, dreadful, even down right horrific dating can be. As a thirty something myself, and quite single, I can attest to the slow painful torture that dating really is. And being a helpless romantic, does not make matters any better for me. I am glad I will have a TV show to watch other people suffer through and somehow manage to make the dating scene into something comical.

Sneak Peak at ABC Fall Line Up (part two)

Okay! I think we might have something to look forward to! I have always been a fan of Christina Applegate. She has wowed me since back in the day of her rebel teenage years when starring as Kelly Bundy on Married With Children. This fall she will be starring in a new situation comedy on ABC.

Mondays at 9:30pm: SAM I AM

“How would you like to rewind your life, erase all the mistakes and cringe-worthy moments and start over with a clean slate? It’s a common fantasy. But for Samantha Newly (played by Christina Applegate), the fantasy is far too real. After a hit-and-run car accident puts her into an eight-day coma, she wakes up with retrograde amnesia. She can function in the world, but she can’t remember a single fact about her own life!”

After I watched THIS VIDEO I am seriously excited to see this show. And with a co-star like, Jean Smart as her mother, who refuses to give Sam any accurate facts about the past she is trying to remember, you cannot go wrong. Pairing up two female situation comedy divas together, now we are on the right track. Good call on this one ABC

If you could start over, would you do things differently? Could you do them differently? Can people change? Or are we just… who we are? Please let me know in the comments!

Sneak Peak at the ABC Fall Line Up (part one)

After some research, I have discovered that ABC has added double the amount of new shows to their fall line up as NBC. NBC has added five new shows, while ABC has added a whopping eleven. But, sometimes quality is better than quantity. The powers that be over at ABC must have over looked that little nugget of wisdom when they decided to add this to their repartee.

Tuesday Nights at 8pm, Caveman.
“Basing the show on their popular GEICO “cavemen” commercials, Joe Lawson, Will Speck and Josh Gordon, have created a hilarious and thought-provoking social commentary on race relations in today’s America.”

I don’t think this is a thought provoking or hilarious TV show. After watching THIS VIDEO first hand, to say that I am disappointed would be an understatement. While I love the Geico cavemen commercials, I don’t think there is enough material to work with in order to fill a thirty-minute slot every week on prime time TV. I have to admit, back when this show was still in the rumor phase, I was routing for it, lord knows we need good sitcoms, it is enough already with reality TV. But sadly, now that I have witnessed what came out of the production end, I see this becoming a huge failure and quickly. Maybe they should have hired the same guys that are in the commercials.

At least this is still funny…and in only 32 seconds and without words…

Um….what? The Bionic Woman? How about no. thank. you.

To be fair, here is a video interview with the executive producer David Eick.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I am all for strong women. I love super heroes; I loved wonderwoman when I was a little girl. (still do) And I commend the level of physical training the lead actress Michelle Ryan has to endure.

But I cannot see me watching this show…ever.

Would you watch this? Is this keeping with the current fantasy sci-fi trend? Don’t you think NBC should stick with sitcoms! I sure do!

Sneak Peak at NBC’s Fall Line up (part one)

By now you’ve probably heard about some of the new shows NBC has signed for the fall season.

Here is a glimpse of one of the new shows, Chuck. A lot of the press is reporting on the show as a drama, but it’s really more of a comedy.

Here’s a quick rundown of the show:

Chuck is a comedy about a college-age I.T. employee. He works for “The Nerd Herd,” a mobile tech support company (sort of like The Geek Squad), who gains access to a wealth of government secrets and becomes a secret agent overnight. It’s written by the head writer of The O.C., Josh Schwartz, and stars Zachary Levi.

Here is a sneak peak of the situation-dramedy

I don’t know what you think, but after watching those videos, that is no drama. That is a comedy. I liked it. But I wont be making a formal opinion until after I see an entire episode.

SCRUBS SEASON FINALE…. nooooooo!

Tonight at 9:00pm on NBC It is time to say goodbye to season six.

I knew this evening would eventually arrive. I have done my best to prepare for this moment. I made fresh popcorn with extra butter, shut off my phone, locked the doors, closed the windows, shut the lights, moved the furniture in my house so that my sofa is 5 inches away from the TV screen, and I even turned off my computer so there will be absolutely no interruptions whatsoever. But I am still far from accepting the season finale of SCRUBS is happening tonight. *tear* It seems like just yesterday when JD was hiding in the supply closet terrified for his fist night “on-call” at Sacred Heart.

On a positive note, tonight’s season finale will be a FULL HOUR long! That’s right A FULL HOUR of SCRUBS.

Overveiw:
“To Be or Not To Be”
J.D. (Zack Braff) and Eloit (Sarah Chalke) contemplate their futures in the one hour season finale of SCRUBS.
Father-to-be J.D.invites mother-to-be Kim (guest star Elizabeth Banks) to move in with him so that they can raise their child together. Elsewhere, Carla (Judy Reyes) helps bride-to-be Eliot (Sarah Chalke) plan for her upcoming wedding, while the Janitor (Neil Flynn) and the “Brain Trust” vow to make Keith (Travis Schuldt) the perfect husband-to-be. However, it doesn’t seem meant to be when at the baptism for Dr. Cox’s (John C. McGinley) daughter the father-to-be and the bride-to-be begin to contemplate the paths they have chosen and question whether or not they were the ones that were meant for each other all along. Elsewhere, Turk (Donald Faison) learns that life changes when you become a father. Ken Jenkins also stars as Dr. Bob Kelso.

Thank god NBC wised up and signed on for a seventh season, I think? But MAYBE NOT? Is it still really touch-n-go? I can ONLY HOPE that there will be one more completely new episode filled season. [biting off all my fingernails] To hold me over, I have downloaded every single episode that was available on itunes, but, I do have to go out and buy season one, two and three on DVD.

I hope you all join me in the Scrubs season finale. I think I will keep the comments here on and “open live” during the show!!

[If you live in a cave or under a rock and you haven’t ever watched an episode of Scrubs, please read THIS]
