I usually do not watch the new crop of shows premiering on TV. Every time I try to get into a new show, it gets canceled. I prefer to wait a bit and let it establish itself before watching. I did watch an episode of Mike and Molly yesterday. It was not bad. It has potential, I suppose. I got excited when I saw Melissa McCarthy onscreen because I remember her from Gilmore Girls. And it has the feel of an old-school sitcom – you know, the “filmed in front of a live studio audience” sort that I like. But they need to stop doing the “LOL FAT JOKE” every three minutes. That is my biggest criticism. Why can’t they just focus on two characters who happen to be overweight and reference it every once in awhile instead of all these repetitive, juvenile fat jokes?
Speaking of new television shows, My Generation got abysmal ratings and reviews. So it’s looking like my debut as a “background actor may not even happen.” COME ON SHOW, LAST UNTIL THE FOURTH EPISODE. ALL I WANT IS TO SEE MY PINKIE FINGER ON TV, DAMN IT.
The best part about fall TV? All the scary shows and movies to prep for Halloween!
