Anyone watch Being Human? Just watched the first ep. I liked it, wondering if it gets better/worse from here?

I realize that ABC is on a roll with sitcoms. Cougar Town, awesome. Modern Family, really awkwardly hilarious. The Middle, stupid but good performances from Neil Flynn and Patricia Headen. Even Scrubs still has it's moments, though it really shouldn't have been revived.

Parks and Recreation is actually my favourite sitcom at the moment.

All that stuff about S2 really rising above the first one is completely accurate.

Amy Pohler is one of the few consistently funny women on television!  I don't know about the Indian guy from Scrubs.  I assume he's not a woman, however.

Amy was minor but funny in Hamlet 2 I have not seen Parks and Rec but I appreciate her comedic timing and her time on Saturday night was solid if not uproarious.

Amy Poehler and Aziz Ansari are awesome, Fazeface. Why don't you go have sex with another woman and stop being wrong, homo!
Having said that, I haven't been able to get into Parks and Recreation. I will eventually, I'm sure.

You are wrong on two counts.

One, Scrubs wasn't "Revived", it simply continued, and it is awesome so shut your filthy filthy mouth now.

Two, The Middle? Really? What's wrong with you.

That is all.

NBC originally made Scrubs, but they dropped it and ABC picked it up.  It would've died in most circumstance.

On the other hand, he doesn't like Amy Poehler so yeah...filthy mouth, etc.

Yeah, but Season 8 was on ABC, this is the second season to be on ABC, but it's Scrubs: Med School, so it's a slightly different show, which is what i'm pretty sure she means about the "Revived" thing.

...yes? I'll be honest the last week's episode of Scrubs wasn't that good. The JDisms are really terribly annoying. Let the filthiness fly.

I'm not saying the Middle is a great show I just like Neil Flynn a lot. Come on he's the janitor for pete's sake!

So there's this new show on TLC called One Big Happy Family, and it's honestly about a family of four waaay overweight people who are trying to lose weight. And the thing is, for as much of an insensitive freakshow as it has the potential of being, it's actually kind of touching. It humanizes the family beyond "Oh, you're all really fat." I don't know; I don't watch a whole lot of wannabe-educational reality TV, so maybe all those shows about, like, midgets and people with two heads are like this. But it's kind of a nice show, I guess, if there's nothing else to do on a Tuesday night. Which, for me, there rarely is.

Although it occurs to me that the casting call for this show was probably really insensitive. Like, "Wanted: A family of four morbidly obese people that we can follow around with our camera crew and showcase for a national audience." I mean, I've always wondered how producers go about casting people in films whose sole duty is to be looked upon as the ugly or fat or whatever one; it seems very dehumanizing and crass. Finding four everyday people who theoretically serve that same end boggles the mind.

So I'm watching Live With Regis and Kelly because there's nothing else on TV at 9 o'clock on a Thursday morning, and I guess I haven't seen much of the guy since, like, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, because Regis has gone from mild curmudgeon to full-out crazy person. What a bastard.

He's been on that show for 20 years and probably one of the best paid talk show hosts on TV. He gets Letterman or Leno money, i'd wager.
He gets a bit hyper but he's 79 and it looks like no permanent damage is being done

I dislike his schtick, but it hardly goes to revulsion. He had top ratings for years in his time slot, so somebody must be watching.

So more news about Leno. He'll be moving to his old slot for a 30 minute version of his show, and all the shows after will be moved back a half hour. Simple, eh? And to replace him at 10pm? NEW SHOWS! The most interesting one is "Rex Is Not Your Lawyer", a new legal dramedy with David Tennant! He plays a lawyer who becomes so overcome by anxiety that he has to now coach his clients. Jeffrey Tambor plays his therapist (I wouldn't have been able to spell that without Arrested Development!), and Jane Curtin has a role in the show as well. Sure, there's also Jerry O'Connell, but I think the combined awesomeness of Tennant, Tambor, and Curtin will cancel out Kangaroo Jack.

Also picked up were shows by David E. Kelley (Boston Legal, Ally McBeal, etc.), JJ Abrams, Jerry Bruckheimer, and David Shore (House), along with a remake of ITV's "Prime Suspect" and some government conspiracy show that'll probably be canceled in three weeks (especially considering it's competing for a slot with the 10th Doctor, Denny Crane's creator, Mr. Star Trek Rebooter, the guy who stole the Declaration of Independence, and ... well, the House guy).

Thank you Gorky! I've always hated Letterman because I've never cared for his attitude. Anyway to go on with this NBC late night debate, here's Conan O'Brien's statement should NBC have the gall to push The Tonight Show back just for poor Jay Leno:

People of Earth:

In the last few days, I've been getting a lot of sympathy calls, and I want to start by making it clear that no one should waste a second feeling sorry for me. For 17 years, I've been getting paid to do what I love most and, in a world with real problems, I've been absurdly lucky. That said, I've been suddenly put in a very public predicament and my bosses are demanding an immediate decision.

Six years ago, I signed a contract with NBC to take over The Tonight Show in June of 2009. Like a lot of us, I grew up watching Johnny Carson every night and the chance to one day sit in that chair has meant everything to me. I worked long and hard to get that opportunity, passed up far more lucrative offers, and since 2004 I have spent literally hundreds of hours thinking of ways to extend the franchise long into the future. It was my mistaken belief that, like my predecessor, I would have the benefit of some time and, just as important, some degree of ratings support from the prime-time schedule. Building a lasting audience at 11:30 is impossible without both.

But sadly, we were never given that chance. After only seven months, with my Tonight Show in its infancy, NBC has decided to react to their terrible difficulties in prime-time by making a change in their long-established late night schedule.

Last Thursday, NBC executives told me they intended to move the Tonight Show to 12:05 to accommodate the Jay Leno Show at 11:35. For 60 years the Tonight Show has aired immediately following the late local news. I sincerely believe that delaying the Tonight Show into the next day to accommodate another comedy program will seriously damage what I consider to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting. The Tonight Show at 12:05 simply isn't the Tonight Show. Also, if I accept this move I will be knocking the Late Night show, which I inherited from David Letterman and passed on to Jimmy Fallon, out of its long-held time slot. That would hurt the other NBC franchise that I love, and it would be unfair to Jimmy.

So it has come to this: I cannot express in words how much I enjoy hosting this program and what an enormous personal disappointment it is for me to consider losing it. My staff and I have worked unbelievably hard and we are very proud of our contribution to the legacy of The Tonight Show. But I cannot participate in what I honestly believe is its destruction. Some people will make the argument that with DVRs and the Internet a time slot doesn't matter. But with the Tonight Show, I believe nothing could matter more.

There has been speculation about my going to another network but, to set the record straight, I currently have no other offer and honestly have no idea what happens next. My hope is that NBC and I can resolve this quickly so that my staff, crew, and I can do a show we can be proud of, for a company that values our work.

Have a great day and, for the record, I am truly sorry about my hair; it's always been that way.

Yours,

Conan


I wouldn't expect anything less. Conan is an honest and good guy. He deserves more than playing second fiddle to Leno. I'll follow him wherever he goes. TEAM CONAN!

Conan's the good guy being screwed over by all of this. Him and Jimmy. But mostly Conan. I never thought about how his ratings are hurt by not having Law & Order or ER at 10pm, but it's true; somebody leaves their TV on after their 10pm drama, watches the news, and then, oh! Conan's on! I know when I'm watching NBC at 9pm I change the channel once Leno comes on, and most of the time I forget to watch Conan (shameful me). I would expect Conan to leave if he gets bumped after midnight. It's terrible of NBC to try to keep Leno.

Letterman's having a few jokes about NBC's mess tonight. One is on what they'll put on at 10pm: Law & Order: Leno's Victims Unit.


Also, here's a link about saving Coco.

Jimmy Kimmel impersonated Jay Leno for his entire show. Here's the first part of his monologue. You can access the rest of the show from his Channel on Youtube. It's quite funny.

Are there no depths to which "syfi" won't sink in their original movies? I keep seeing ads for "Sea Snakes," which is apparently Snakes on a Plane on a submarine.
