1) I am madly in love with Scream Queens and can’t wait for the next episode.
2) The Daily Show with Trevor Noah needs some work, but it’s not terrible. The one thing I will say, though, is that while Noah is adorable, the second we were introduced to new correspondent Roy Wood, Jr., all I could think about was how much better the show would’ve been if they’d hired HIM as the host instead. Noah will probably improve with practice and he definitely has cute dimples, but otherwise, not much to him so far. Wood’s delivery, on the other hand, is just so great, and, obviously, he shares a last name with all my favorite people in the world, so, you know. Points.
3) The Grinder was terrible, wasn’t it? Too bad, too, because I really enjoyed the cast. That dialogue, though — argh! And the premise is pretty weak (guy who played lawyer on TV plays lawyer in real life; as if that would work anywhere ever). Not going back for episode 2, I’m afraid. Sit-coms: so infernally hard to do well.
Tonight and tomorrow updates: borrrrrrring. Here we go:
Bones – Fox – I got tired of this one a few seasons back. Nothing against it; just moved on to something else.
Sleepy Hollow – Fox – Never got around to watching season 2, though I mean to at some point. Or maybe I don’t. I don’t know. Should I?
Dr. Ken – ABC – 8:30pm – Did you know that Ken Jeong was a physician before he was an actor? Isn’t that not at ALL what you were expecting? I like this guy; he’s wacky. But this show doesn’t interest me at all, and it’s gotten nothing but the harshest words from all the critics too. Pass.
See what I mean? Dead. Zone. (Ooh, there’s a show I miss!)
