TV Shows booted from my Tivo

Ben and Kate – When the best actor on the show is the 5 year old kid, it’s time to stop watching. But even before then, the immaturity of the show was annoying and it was simply a boring as hell premise. Death knell was – NOT FUNNY.

The Neighbors – Holy shit. This show has no redeeming features whatsoever. Awful in every single possible way – acting, directing, writing….inconceivable to imagine we live in a world where this steaming pile of shit could actually get on TV.

The Mindy Project – Another show where I simply don’t care about the whiny, entitled characters. It might be a good show but there’s zero relevance to me from any of the characters. And like Ben and Kate, I never laughed a single time during the first two episodes.

Shows on the bubble:

Animal Practice – not funny but roommate loves the animals

Made in Jersey – not nearly enough cleavage for a show about women from New Jersey

Vegas – watching this just for Chiklis but never a fan of period dramas

Elementary – I so want this to be good (I LOVE LUCY LIU) but it’s not outstanding. It suffers from comparisons to the BBC’s Sherlock

Last Resort – watching just to continue to spot the *HUGE* number of tech details they get completely wrong

The New Normal – who new gays could be so boring?

Go On – Do you wonder what ever happened to Chandler Bing? This show answers that question

The Mob Doctor – always fun watching medical shows with a doctor – “Oh, that’s bullshit!”

666 Park Avenue – I love Terry O’Quinn so I’ll give this show a chance but I’m not holding out a lot of hope

What new shows are you watching or not watching this season and why?

  1. Mathew Perry really has forever been cast as Chandler Bing.

    His role in Studio 60 was a really well crafted character, but, apparently only you,me, and the homeless ever watched that show.

    I really feel sorry for him, (apart from the 40 mill he earned), even today, he is the only one that had a modicum of talent. I thought Mr.s Sunshine was a fun if simple comedy.

    This, however is crap.

    1. I wonder how much of it is that he’s been typecast as Chandler Bing or if he simply can’t act?

      “apparently only you,me, and the homeless ever watched that show.”

      I still don’t get why more people didn’t watch that show and why people think that it was bad. I’ve ben rewatching it lately and I think it still stands up pretty well. Certainly better than most hour long dramedies do today.

      And yeah – Go On is kinda bad…
