Good bye Fashion Police! The final episode aired last week and NO ONE CARED. Actually, no one cared after Joan Rivers passed away. She was savagely funny and knew fashion. E could have saved the show instead of foisting Melissa Rivers and Nene Leakes on viewers. Comedian Sommore would have been a fantastic host with Lloyd Boston serving as a fashion expert. Round out the crew with model Ashley Graham and Jay Manuel from America’s Next Top Model. He’s certainly more entertaining than Brad Goretsky.
I had no intention of watching CBS’s 9JKL . I couldn’t relate to the premise that someone would want to live sandwiched between their parents and a sibling’s apartment. Then I found myself watching it because it airs right after “Superior Donuts“, a show I love. Here’s what I like about 9JKL…Matt Murray. He plays the handsome and funny Nick, the doorman at the building where the characters live. Nick steals the show for me. The producers featured his character and introduced a sister on the Dec 4th episode. Although it was silly and very predictable, Murray’s performance shone. I still don’t see 9JKL lasting very long but if it does, it will be because of the supporting cast.
I was dismissive of CBS’s “Bull”. I said it was unrealistic because the average person does not have access to a trial consultant. Well that’s still true, but doggone it I like the show. I especially like the diversity of the supporting cast. I’ve been watching Michael Weatherly since his soap opera days and I didn’t think Bull would be successful for him since people were so used to him on NCIS. But Weatherly is totally believable as Jason Bull, Trial Consultant and I find myself invested in the outcome of each episode.
Why does the OWN network give us family reality shows like “Raising Whitley“, “Flex and Shanice” and “For Peete’s Sake” only to cancel them after about 3 seasons? I admit the story lines diverged wildly in their last seasons but viewers can’t get a decent goodbye? I’m still wondering what’s up with Flex and Shanice. Did they ever get out of debt? What about Flex’s comedy career? At least Holly Robinson Peete is bringing her family themed reality show to The Hallmark Channel this February.
The syndicated “Funny You Should Ask” is so bad. It’s like Hollywood Squares without the x’s and O’s. Produced by Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios, A mix of comedians sit on a panel and answer questions. Contestants then decide which celeb gave the right answer. The jokes are obviously scripted, it feels like the fun is manufactured and celebs are phoning it in. Try and get through one episode …©
