Can I just ask you guys one thing? Who the hell picks these shows? Like, who decides to produce a show with a monkey as one of the characters in show about an animal hospital? Animal Practice, the one I'm referring to, is absolutely horrible. It's not funny nor is it interesting at all. The fact that it stars a monkey in it is just icing on this crap cake.
Don't even get me started on Malibu Country. That's one I haven't even seen and I want to throw up just thinking about it. I was watching TV the other day with my dad and a commercial came on for that show and my dad was like "didn't that lady already have a crappy show that got canceled?" That wasn't verbatim but you get the gist. The show was called Reba if you were wondering... to the show's defense, it wasn't that bad. It won a few awards actually.
I think the show that scares me the most is Guys with Kids. Not because it's as stupid or trashy as Malibu Country, but because it's being produced by Jimmy Fallon. The show just looks bad and just really not original. This pains me to say this because I absolutely love Fallon. It's true... just read this or this. He's really funny and I love his show. To see him totally selling his new show on Late Night just pains me significantly. Watch this and you'll understand.
It's not like there isn't potential... it's just painfully not original. At all. So many movies have come out recently about parents and babies. And what about Up All Night that just came out last year? I don't even like that show that much but it has funny people and decent original writing. I just really don't see a future for Guys with Kids, at all. Sorry, Jimmy.
I watched The Mindy Project and was a little bit surprised. . Nothing I would really like to watch again, but it did have it's moments of funniness. I was also hopeful for The New Normal because I liked a lot of the actors they had in it. I wasn't too impressed with the pilot but I might check in with it later once it's in its groove.
In conclusion, new TV shows kind of suck. I might be one of those old people who only like the "classics" and nothing new, but it's just kind of true. If you want to watch quality television, some of the shows I've been watching lately include: Louie, Mad Men, Dexter, Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, New Girl, Saturday Night Live (sometimes), and The Daily Show (my favorite!). Not saying you should watch what I watch... but you should.There are so many great show out there right now. Don't settle for anything less than amazingness! All right, I guess I'll see you guys again... soon? Thanks for reading!
