Comic Amy Schumer Still Getting Flak, Comedy Central Sheen Roast (Video)

September 25th, 2011 No comments

Some people just don’t get it.  It’s a roast.  No holds barred.  Even for Ryan Dunn, the Jackass that decided to take his car and flip it over on a highway outside of Philadelphia earlier this year.

Seems Ryan Dunn made a jackass move himself by imbibing in several alcoholic beverages prior to jumping behind the automobile, taking his life and his passenger’s.

Amy Schumer - Comedy Central's Roast of Charlie Sheen

But did comedienne Amy Schumer cross a line with the joke she made toward another Jackass in Steve-O during the Charlie Sheen roast?

You can watch the clip below but Amy Schumer is trending pretty hot right now on the web for her joke that many thing crossed the line.  In my opinion everything is on the table if you attend one of any roast on Comedy Central.  But watch the clip yourself and you can judge if she crossed the line.

Her joke about the deceased funnyman was just part of the risk you take when you sit on that stage.  Was it too soon?  Yes, some would say.  But nothing is out of bounds on that network and that show.

‘Charlie’s Angels’ Fun, Eye Candy, Not Much Else, and Kinda Like the Original

September 25th, 2011 No comments

There’s nothing better than watching three women bounce around on your TV screen in short skirts and shorts, revealing tops and heels.  That’s Charlie’s Angels for guys.  For ladies Ramon Rodriguez (Bosely) will get your juices going as he steps out of the pool shirtless in one scene of the new ABC series.

But that’s about it.

Nobody can act on this show.  But in the original Charlie’s Angels back in the 70’s, well that cast couldn’t act either.  But who cares.  It’s all about the eye candy, right?

Minka Kelly (Eve) and Rachael Taylor (Abby) in ABC’s ‘Charlies Angels’

Yeah that’s what you’re about to get if you watch Charlie’s Angels.  OK this show is as dumb as the original but I gotta tell you it’s not so dumb that it’s not worth the hour.

Rachael Taylor plays Abby Sampson, Annie Illonzeh is Kate Prince and Minka Kelly is Eve French in the new ABC kinda comedy drama and make up Charlie’s Angels.  A perfect series for ABC to continue to reach out to women who tend to think ABC is the place to be for viewing TV shows.

What will get these women watching this show will be what’s in new fashion-wise.  But the questions remain will there be an audience for Charlie’s Angels?  With the number of really well written and well produced new shows on TV this season, Charlie’s Angels could be that show that stands out as really different.

Cause it’s dumb.

Other than that, there’s not a lot to say about this show except you get exactly what you should get from this show.  A little fun, a little drama, a little nonsense, a lot of skin and limited quality acting.  Nothing more.

Patrick Wilson’s ‘A Gifted Man’ A Nice Surprise

September 25th, 2011 No comments

So most doctors are jerks.  Take my primary in Beverly Hills.  I come in for a check-up.  We first start by talking politics.  He’s a Republican, I’m a Democrat.  We tussle a bit, neither of us wins and he then charges me $500.  For us to talk politics.

Jerk.

Though gotta give him props.  He did catch that PSA number going up close to 10.  Um for a prostate thing, it should be below 2.  Five years later I have radiation seeds in my prostate, that number is non-existent and I’m alive.

Jerk.

Even his sister in the series A Gifted Man, calls Dr. Michael Holt a jerk.  So I’m not alone.

In A Gifted Man, Patrick Wilson plays Dr. Michael Holt, a neurosurgeon for a major New York city hospital who seems on the typical jerk doctor path until the ghost of his ex-wife re-appears to have dinner with him one night.  Yeah a ghost.  Of course he doesn’t know she’s a ghost until he calls the medical clinic where the ex Dr. Anna Paul (Jennifer Ehle) worked and learns she died two weeks prior.

Anna (Jennifer Ehle) and Dr. Michael Holt (Patrick Wilson) in 'A Gifted Man' on CBS

After giving himself medical tests to determine if he has specific health issues, he determines she’s a real spirit that will help him find more of his self worth beyond being a doctor and stick around for the rest of his life.  Or the rest of the life of this series which could be long because A Gifted Man is a gifted show.

Fortunately A Gifted Man is not your regular medical show where it’s all about doctors, emergency rooms, nurses, stupid patients and inside hospital drama.  This show fits with other new programs on television this season where a third party from somewhere outside of the human realm becomes part of the content of the series.

So no hallucinations or schizophrenia for Dr. Michael Holt.  He’s just fine in his plan to change his outlook on his practice, his personal relationship and his whole life.

A Gifted Man is a winner for the new television season, one of which include several new solid shows and another solid entry for CBS.

‘Person of Interest’ Certainly Keeps You Interested, Solid Drama on CBS

September 23rd, 2011 No comments

Jim Cavaziel is the next cool beat ‘em up guy on any screen.  Yeah, yeah that Steven Seagal fellow back in the day could whoop some tail in his movies.  Then my man Liam Neeson could have drawn in any more males with is work in that movie Taken.  But never expected that Jim Cavaziel could pull off what he does on Person of Interest as well as he does.

Jim Cavaziel in 'Person of Interest' on CBSWhat was the last thing I saw him star in?  The Passion of the Christ back in 2004.  Oh yeah there was a lot of swinging fists and gunfire in that film.  But Person of Interest give you a lot.  A whole lot.   Just the opening scene on a New York subway  fantastic.  Guys are gonna love this show.

Cavaziel plays John Reese, a former CIA agent who joins up with a real misunderstood man of money to prevent crimes from taking place in the city.  And he takes no prisoners in his goal to stop a crime.  If you’re not in to a lot of gunfire or car crashes or just a guy who can kick some ass, don’t watch this show.  Cavaziel pulls the switch from The Passion of the Christ to a rough and tumble crime-fighter real well.

This show is totally engaging from start to finish.  There’s not one minute where you’re not sitting on the edge of your seat enjoying Cavaziel’s easy going, easy chatting personality turning in to someone you don’t want to cross.

Person of Interest is a winner for CBS.  Oh and watch your knees.  Cavaziel’s character has a bad habit of putting bullets in the knees of his foes.

‘Whitney’ Seems Forced, Over-Acted, Yet Very Funny (Videos)

September 23rd, 2011 No comments

So I will have to watch this one again.  And maybe a third time.  Jokes seemed really forced, a bit too planned, almost obvious and you can tell this show called Whitney is all about Whitney Cummings.

Whitney Cummings as 'Whitney' on NBC

The Chelsea Lately castoff stars in this romantic comedy with Chris D’Elia (Alex) and they work extremely well in pulling off a solid comedy pair.  They have fun and are fun together but the lines used by them and the rest of the cast seem planned and too rehearsed.

But.

The lines are damn funny.

And lots of old school slapstick comedy and Whitney Cummings is perfectly awesome.  So is Chris.  Yet there seems to be something not real so far but it is sure worth a long look any I’m looking forward to seeing a lot more of this comedy.  Especially after NBC simply fails with their other two really hyped comedies Up All Night and Free Agents.

Watch some of the video content below and you’ll see how good Whitney is but let’s hope that it’s not all too much Whitney Cummings because some shows that focus a bit too much on one comedienne’s personal content is not longstanding.

But you’re sure to laugh.

Getting Past ‘Sexist’ Cops, Maria Bello’s ‘Prime Suspect’ Absolutely Solid (Videos)

September 23rd, 2011 No comments

Yowzah!  As they used to say back, well back somewhere.  Woohoo as one of my friends writes in her e-mails when something goes well.  Well something went well last night.  Though it took a minute or two getting past the typical white, sexist traditional New York city cop/detective image that was pretty overdone, Prime Suspect is no longer suspect.

Maria Bello as 'Det. Jane Timoney' in NBC's 'Prime Suspect'Maria Bello gets a winning start in what could be the next hot cop drama on television.  After working her way to the top job in her squad surrounded by a slew of sexist co-worker cops, Bello’s Det. Jane Timoney moves forward quickly to prove she has the foundation to run her squad.

She looked pretty weak at the start of PPrime Suspect and I really don’t like seeing the kind of male chauvinist attitude pervasive throughout the new drama.  But part of that goes away as the hour moves along and Det. Timoney confidence grows.

Female viewers will have to give these guys a bit of a break if they want to stick with this show but sticking around may be worth it.  Attitudes like what takes place in Prime Suspect won’t bring in a lot of women who have been there in real life but the writers do a great job of moving the content forward, making Maria Bello’s Jane Timoney a solid boss in an all male environment.

But that content of a good cop drama is for real.  Maria Bello is  in a great comfort zone in playing the role of a tough female detective.  Prime Suspect, after all of the promotion and hype about the pilot episode, was worth the wait.  And the hour to watch it.

You’re gonna like this one especially if you’re in to well produced cop dramas.  NBC has a winner in Prime Suspect.

“Bad boys, bad boys,” Actually Catch a Bad Girl on ‘COPS’ (Videos)

September 22nd, 2011 No comments

You gotta love this content from FOX and their Saturday night show COPS.  This is great reality television no doubt and I write about this because, well I gotta say something good about FOX since Glee is a mess and The X Factor is about to be “X”d like a Jamie Kennedy hidden TV prank.

'COPS' The Boynton Beach, FL Police Department conducts an undercover operation involving a woman who has allegedly hired a hit man to kill her husband

This though is no prank. This Saturday night on a new episode of COPS on FOX, one of the worst elements in the world is featured.  That of a scumbag wife who takes out a hit on her husband but of course the person she thinks is a piece of shit like her turns out to be an undercover cop.

Surprise, surprise!

So here are a few links to what you will see on Saturday night but we like it when these pieces of shit getting busted by really good COPS.  There’s nothing worse than this type of crime.  I can’t stand even a petty thief let alone someone that marries another person then puts a hit on them.

Awful.

But I will be watching.

You Gotta Love Kelli Giddish Joining ‘Special Victims Unit’

September 22nd, 2011 No comments

Well Elliot Stabler is done officially on Law & Order: SVU.  He put in his retirement papers but that’s just the TV thing.  Chris Meloni is long gone from Law & Order: SVU as the brash and rash Elliot Stabler as this long running show on NBC restructures its cast to reflect a new direction as Kelli Giddish joins the team.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit - 'Scorched Earth' Kelli Giddish as 'Det. Amanda Rollins'

Not a bad move for Law & Order: SVU. Kelli Giddish has a past with NBC.   And with CBS.  After spending a season on the NBC show Chase and a couple of episodes on the CBS hit show The Good Wife, let’s hope Kelli Giddish has found a home with the  crew at Law & Order: SVU.

She’s totally rough and tumble.  Chase, if you ask any male between the age of 18 to 54 years of age, was a solid show.  A blond running around throwing handcuffs on criminals is always what men view as, well a very good thing.  Most men liked Chase.  One of my friends in the demographic I just mentioned absolutely loved Chase.  I let him know that Kelli Giddish is now on Law & Order: SVU.

He’s very happy.

She served the same role on The Good Wife as a private detective working on the toughest cases and Kelli Giddish seems to fit in perfectly in roles where she maintains an edgy exterior.  Works perfectly for her and her new role as Detective Amanda Rollins puts her in the same groove as her last two past roles on television.

Kelli Giddish is a comer and she will partner with Mariska Hargitay’s Detective Olivia Benson on several more episodes this season.

At Least ‘Two’ Things Looks Good for ‘The X Factor’ Courtesy Conan O’Brien (Video)

September 22nd, 2011 No comments

So it’s no secret that The X Factor got off to a terrible start last night, a start that no one at FOX could be happy with after the massive almost quarter million dollar promotional investment in the show.  Thinking that anything that Simon Cowell touches turns to gold, well there’s no gold left up there in them there hills for The X Factor as they used to say in the old days.

Nicole Sherzinger and Conan O'Brien on 'Conan' on TBS

But at least we can have some fun with The X Factor and judge Nicole Scherzinger.  With her appearance on Conan O’Brien’s talk show on TBS, the host got lost not in Nicole’s conversation but in the positioning of her upper body.  And Conan got busted big time by Nicole and in his usual frat boy humor that got him tossed at NBC over to much less watch TBS, Conan plays it off perfectly for his audience.

Watch the video.  Enjoy.

Ouch! ‘Glee’ Opens Soft, ,’The X Factor’ Premiere Off on FOX

September 22nd, 2011 No comments

Oh my!  Last night’s premiere episode of the new FOX reality show The X Factor go rocked last night.  Simon Cowell expected this to be his new boost to glory on the television network that launched him in American Idol. But as  wrote yesterday and as I blogged then as well, it looks like Zooey Deschanel’s New Girl will be the only big winner on FOX this new TV season.

Ratings are in and although The X Factor won it’s time slot the 20,000,000 viewers Simon Cowell wanted to tune in last night only got around half that number.  But no one expected this to be the next American Idol except Simon.  Which you gotta give him credit for his brash and bold prediction.

To be honest, are viewers simply tired of the same old, ongoing relatively boring competition shows?

Yes.

Now with The X Factor premiering soft along with Glee dropping audience as well, bring on that Zooey gal in New Girl.  Freshest thing on TV, freshest thing on FOX.

Paula Abdul, L.A. Reid, Nicole Sherzinger and Simon Cowell from 'TheX Factor'

This show has gone to unbelievable lengths to bring solid support to The X Factor on FOX.  A $5 million dollar prize for the final winner when all is said and done which quite frankly is a lot more that the $1 million from American Idol.  Yes, both are on the same network but FOX was banking on The X Factor to be monstrous.

Not a lot of glee today at FOX.
