UPDATES TO COME…. REFRESH FOR LATEST…

THESE ARE SOME SHOWS STILL ON BUBBLE OR FATE UNCONFIRMED:

Hannibal (NBC)

The Taste (ABC)

The Neighbors (ABC)

1st off.. Go On was a genuinely “LOL” comedy. It had great characters,great jokes and should have been given another chance. For ‘comedy’ this one and Suburgatory were the ones we looked forward to each week..

2nd. The New Normal. I enjoyed this one.True, it was not hands-down-hilarious but it was better than whatever was on the rival channel..

and 3rd. Hannibal.. fuck! NO NO NO NO NO! Seriously NO! This show is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. It’s bizarre,grotesque,intriguing,high-brow..it’s the ‘darkest’ drama I’ve seen on TV. Even when compared to something like Walking Dead or the shield.. it’s head and shoulders ‘dark’ above them. Granted I don’t watch “Dexter” so I don’t know if there is a comparison there (except that you’d expect Hannibal to be on pay-cable)  but it’s one of the few shows over the last few years that I genuinely look forward to. In fact, it’s only the 2nd we watch as it’s airing instead of DVR’ing.. (well, we give it about a 15 mins head start).. the other being “Merlin” which was also cancelled and has only 3 episodes left(and btw, that cancellation actually hurt )

I seriously think TV execs need to get their heads out of their asses and stop cancelling shows that don’t do “ER” or “West Wing” or “NYPD” numbers… those kinds of numbers are dead and never to return. And really folks,not everything needs to be a ‘viral video”…!

There are way too many other networks these days with amazing programming.. I mean, the History channel even has “Vikings”..and A & E with “Walking Dead” and “Breaking Bad”(.. Let that sink in a minute.. wtf? the History channel and A & E with competing dramas?Wow!we’ve come a long way since only 3 major networks)  Add in more and more on Hbo,showtime,starz,Cinemax…and the numbers of viewers watching one show dwindle.. That doesn’t mean some shows,“Game of Thrones” for instances, don’t have massive viewership on their own..  but those are getting more and more rare.. and if TV exec’s don’t figure that shit out and start re-uping shows with “good”, just not “American Idol season 2” numbers.. they’re going to  continue with the dwindling numbers because who is going to give a shit about new programming when it’s just going to get bounced in 3 weeks if it doesn’t sweep the world gangnam style in the first 15 mins..

when comics get angry

Jon Stewart is (rightfully) pissed and what better way to vent that anger than to use his comedic talent and a  few victims of the Republican hostage-taking machine currently controlling the Congress and have an ‘adult conversation’ on just how partisan and utterly selfish this crop of Republicans are. The best part about this? We, as a country, get to look forward to the fact that these assholes will be in complete control come January. God save us all….

Here are two clips from last nights “The Daily Show”. I encourage everyone to watch them… or if you’ve already seen them, watch again. If this issue doesn’t tell you what kind of people were just given majorities and ‘the American people’s voice’, then you’re part of the problem. There is no excuse for this kind of behavior by the GOP, nothing justifies their borg-like position that we must give hedge-fund managers making a billion dollars a year a tax break before we can give the 1st responders to 9/11 health care. There is nothing that can explain this one away.

This is who you elected folks, if I didn’t have to live here with you I’d be happy to watch you wither away in the gutter-shit you’ve dumped upon this country. Too bad for me though that I didn’t make a billion dollars last year during the worst economy since the depression, so my feelings don’t really count do they?

I never thought I would say this, but Thank You Al Jazeera for being the only news channel to thoroughly expose this atrocity committed by the Congressional Republicans. The irony of this  is not lost on anyone.

I would hope that some of the Republicans who have chosen the CEO’s and derivative-kings of Wall Street who destroyed the economy and are now attempting (successfully) to control the government … over the sides of the other 98% of this country, would be forced to sit and watch this next part of Stewart’s anger, but even if they did I really don’t think they would get it. To them, the real tragedy here is a 3% tax increase on people who make millions and billions of dollars and that is where we should all focus our attention. We can’t let these poor ultra-wealthy persons suffer anymore than they have already. These 1st responders should really know their place in this country and that place is to sacrifice their selves to save the market experts so those same experts can invest the 401k’s and pensions of those 1st responders in high-risk markets and then bet against the success of that market, thus insuring it’s failure and the total loss of those risked funds.

Know your place bitch! Learn it,live it… love it because you can’t stop us now!

But hey, on the bright side.. atleast we finally know what they mean by “We want our country back”, what they mean is their country Circa 1400 Britain when monarchies ruled and the rest of us lived to serve them.
