Ringer “You’re Way To Pretty To Go To Jail”

7 Mar

Overheard at the Ringer production offices, “it looks like we are getting cancelled, so lets just go all out crazy for the rest of the season, throw as much crap out there as possible”.

The sad fact is I am really enjoying this clichéd, over the top crap, the sloppy writing and the mustache twirling acting. Last night we got FBI Agent Machado’s (Nestor Carbonell) backstory, they have reduced him to a man seeking revenge for his dead pregnant stripper girlfriend.

They turned my Andrew into a supervillian, complete with glaring stares and ordering “Tyler to be taken care of”, my sweet romantic Andrew is a bad guy. This is where the mustache twirling comes in, all he needed was an evil laugh. Mwahhhhhh!!

Poor Tyler, so pretty, yet so dumb.  Talk about Bambi taking a drink at the stream, looking up and thinking. “wow those orange vests are pretty”.  Just like Bambi, Tyler is dead. I think Shiv is behind it because he took her flash drive and she wasn’t ready to make her move.  

Malcolm, it turns out may be the key to busting this crap wide open, more on that in a minute. Malcolm convinced Bridget that Andrew may not be the safest person to be around, so she moves out of Park Ave. Good Malcom. Then he goes to Henry for help, bad Malcom. Back to how Malcolm maybe the key, ( not in a Buffy sort of way), Shiv blocks her number pretends to be Bridget and calls Malcolm, she tells him to get out of her life. This phone call could be the clue that leads Malcolm to realize Shiv is still alive

Malcom calls FBI guy and agrees to testify about Macawi kidnapping him, I am not sure how much longer he will be alive. Perhaps as he lays dying he will utter the phrase, “she’s alive”.

Tyler and Olivia have a meeting in the backseat of her Towncar, she tells him she knows what he has been up to and he is going down. She tells him to turn the files over to her, he does, but not the flash drive.

Bridget goes to Tyler’s hotel, just in time to see Andrew leaving. She goes to Tyler’s room and bam! he’s dead. Guess he wasn’t bulletproof after-all. Ha! Of course Bridget thinks Andrew did it, but we know better.

Cut to Olivia in the backseat of the Towncar with the flashdrive, oh my.

Cut to Malcolm on the phone, there is a knock at the door, its Andrew looking very menacing.

Tuesday 3/6 What You Should Watch

6 Mar

Ringer is new tonight, last week Bridget found out Andrew is not as perfect as she thought. He is behind the Ponzi scheme, I wonder if the wedding is off.  She pretty much has to forgive him, she would be a hypocrite if she didn’t. Siobhan is having twins, which can only mean we are going to have the one is Andrew and one is Henry’s storyline. Juliet’s mother double crossed Mr C and stole the money, I bet somebody ends up dead by the end of the season.

Fox is bringing back Breaking In tonight, did anyone watch this last season. I watched it for one reason, Michael Rosenbaum, I loved hm as Lex Luthor on Smallville. He was pretty much wasted on this show and I don’t think he is back this year. We also have new episodes of New Girl, Raising Hope and I Hate My Teenage Daughter.

Over on ABC, Cougar Town is running the last of its new episodes, it won’t be back next year. The River continues its journey, I have not watched this at all. Have you?


Agent Machado’s past is revealed; Siobhan deceives Malcolm; Tyler takes a key piece of evidence in Siobhan’s plan for revenge; Henry must stop Bridget from interfering with his plans.

Tuesday 2/28 What You Should Watch

28 Feb

Ringer is new tonight, based on the previews it looks like this week is improving on last week. ITs still pretty soapy cheesy, but in a good way. Siobhan is having twins, sounds like multiple baby daddy storyline is coming up here.  There is a clip of Juliet’s mother seducing the teacher and Andrew proposes to Bridget, he thinks they are just renewing their vows, but we know its more.

OMG it the season finale really going to be a Bridget/Andrew wedding with someone breaking in to stop it.  Oy vey.

Now that Henry knows the truth about Bridget he has become a more interesting character, he plays the villain well.  But wait until he finds out about Tyler.  I guess Mr. C will end up dead by the end of the season, but who will be killer?  My bet is Juliet is falsely accused, and goes on trial in season 2.

Of course we have the regular Tuesday night champs, NCIS and NCIS LA.

American Idol, keeps on rolling.

Body of Proof, Unforgettable, Cougar Town, Last Man Standing and The River are new tonight.

Parenthood airs the season finale, and possible series finale tonight. I don’t think it will be back next year.

Bubble Watch – Is Your Show on The Bubble

24 Feb

As always thanks to Tv By The Numbers for providing the stats and analysis.

Bubble Watch is a guess on a shows future based on its performance in the key 18-49 demo.

I check the ratings for my favorite shows every week, I know most of my favorites are on the chopping block.  (sniff)

Network By Network her is what is on the Bubble (likely to get cancelled) unless all of the pilots fail miserably, these shows are getting cancelled. (maybe, we are only guessing)

The CW

Getting Cancelled

Hart of Dixie and Ringer : I am not surprised HOD is done, it started out promising, but it has crumbled into the biggest pile of crap.  Ringer on the other hand,  has turned into a tightly written noir piece, too bad it can’t find an audience.  I am going to miss Ioan Gruffod, (purr).

On The Bubble

Supernatural: Its time, the show lost its center when Kripke left, it never regained its former rock anthem glory.

The Secret Circle: The only thing that could save this show is Kevin Williamson’s overall deal with the network, minimum seasons maybe part of his contract unless they pick up one of his new pilots.

Nikita, Gossip Girl and 92010.


Body of Proof and The River – DOA or up a river without a paddle, pick your cliché

Private Practive is on the Bubble, I guess we will see how Shonda’s new pilot does.

Pretty much everything else, Revenge, Castle, Suburgatory etc are coming back,








A Gifted Man and Unforgettable – weren’t gifted, and were pretty much forgettable, they are cancelled

The Good Wife, CSI: NY, Rob and Rules of Engagement are on the Bubble. I think Good Wife and CSI will be back.

Everything else is safe for now, depends on how strong the pilots are, they may need to make a little more room. Could the original CSI hang it up, maybe CSI Miami is done for, or what about The Mentalist.


Pretty much everything they have on is in trouble, but Community, Smash, Are you There?, Chelsea and Harry’s Law are in the most.

Other shows hanging by a thread, Parenthood, 30 Rock and Up All Night.

Looks like Grimm is getting renewed as is Law and Order SVU.


It would be easier to tell you what is coming back, Glee, New Girl and Bones.

Alcatraz, Terra Nova, Napoleon Dynamite, Fringe and The Finder are likely to get cancelled.

Tuesday 1/21 What You Should Watch

21 Feb

Ringer, Ringer is what you should watch, every week it kicks the drama up another level with new twists and characters.  I really hope CW brings this show back. Do we really need a “Beauty and The Beast” re-do or a show about The Green Arrow.

All the usual suspects are new tonight, Glee, NCIS, NCISLA, New Girl, Cougar Town and The River.

Tonight’s episode of Glee is the last new episode for 7 weeks, it is the big regionals face off between New Direction and The Warblers. I wonder who will win, is it possible that Glee will have the kids lose regionals and the last episodes before Kurt, Rachel and Finn graduate will take on a much different tone. Or will they win regionals and finally win the national championship.  I guess the seven week hiatus will tell the tale. Apparently Ryan Murphy is stepping back from the show to focus on other projects. Remember how that turned out for Buffy and Supernatural when their masterminds stepped back.


Bridget runs into an important figure (Misha Collins) from her and Siobhan’s past; Malcolm tries to keep an eye on Henry after making a discovery; Catherine (Andrea Roth) asks Andrew to make a big decision.

Tuesday 2/14 What You Should You Watch

14 Feb

If you are like me and watching TV thru the bottom of a Vodka bottle this Valentine’s Day, then cheers!!

Ringer just keeps raising the bar, last week Henry learned the truth about Bridget, Siobhan and the baby.  Tessa came forward to say Mr. C raped her too, I think they are all in on it together. Remember the movie Wild Things, the rich girl, the poor girl and the boating teacher team up to get money from the rich girl’s mother.  Great movie with Kevin Dillon, Kevin Bacon, Neve Campbell and Denise Richards.

Tuesday 2/7 What You Should Watch

7 Feb

The River premieres tonight on ABC. I am going to skip this one, but if you watch will you let me know what you thought. Thanks

Ringer is all new tonight, and after last weeks big reveal, I can’t wait to see what is in store for us tonight. I hope The CW realizes what a fantastic show this is and renews it for a second season. 

NCIS and NCIS LA all new

Glee and New Girl all new. So I heard Glee is going on a 7 week hiatus. I would have sworn it took a break last week when idol came back so I didn’t think it was a big deal. But the interwebs seem to think differently, people think its because FOX isn’t happy and they ate re-tooling the show for the end of the season.  I guess we will see when the show comes back if anything really big changes. Supposedly Kurt and Rachel will be back next year, so that means they are not going to NYADA. I wonder if Kurt’s dad will die and that will prompt him to stay in Lima. Maybe he will be show choir director and go up against New Directions.

Tonight’s episode features guest star Ricky Martin. Did you know Ricky is heading to Broadway, he is playing Che in the Evita revival. This is the role made famous by Mandy Patinkin, he has some very big shows to fill. Mandy is the greatest Che, ever, period!!

Tuesday 11/22 – What You Should Watch

22 Nov

Tuesday 11/22, we are two days away from Thanksgiving. 

If you follow this blog, then you know if it’s Tuesday the Top Spot must belong to Ringer.  If it was on, but Ringer isn’t on this week, so in its place.

NCIS, I am not a fan of this show, but it kills in the ratings, both in the 18-49 demo and total overall viewers every week.  I have watched it a few times, but it never hooked me in. That doesn’t mean I don’t respect its success and dedicated fans.

Maybe some of that TV Karma will rub off on my Fringe and Ringer.

Also on tonight, The Dancing with Stars Finale and the Top 9 perform on The X-Factor.

As always listings courtesy of Zap2It.
