ABC’s Trophy Wife Cancelled


ABC has cancelled Trophy Wife along with the comedies SuburgatoryMixology and The Neighbors. If you read my post last fall, Why Aren’t You Watching Trophy Wife?, who know how sad I am about this. This show was really funny. The best part was the character of Burt played by the Albert Tsai. He was so wonderful. In scenes with bigger stars he was a scene stealer on many occasions.

It’s definitely not a surprise that it got canceled. After series low 0.7 rating it got this past Tuesday, I knew it was done. It never got its fair shake at all. It was placed on Tuesday night in the 9 pm hour with The Goldbergs and no lead in. How did ABC expect it to survive? I will continue to carry on that if they had put The Goldbergs and Trophy Wife on Wednesday night with The Middle and Modern Family, those shows would have done way better in the ratings than they did.

Oh well, such are the ways of network television. I’ll just look forward to the rest of the unaired Trophy Wife episodes and to the future projects of all the cast members of this lovely show.

Why Aren’t You Watching Trophy Wife?


The best comedy of the fall is………. Trophy Wife. What? Trophy Wife, really? Yes, this is the best new comedy that no one is watching. I would put it up there as one of the top comedies on television right now.

Trophy Wife is a show about a newlywed couple, played by Malin Akerman (Rock of Ages, Wanderlust, Children’s Hospital) and Bradley Whitford (West Wing, Cabin In The Woods). The series delves into their daily lives dealing with his two ex-wives, Marcia Gay Harden (The Newsroom, Mystic River) and Michaela Watson (Saturday Night Live, Afternoon Delight, Wanderlust) and the three children from his previous marriages.

5 Shows To Watch This Fall


Fall première dates are coming up and there are too many things to watch. No worries. It was extremely difficult but I have narrowed it down to the 5 shows that you must watch.

1. Brooklyn Nine-Nine (FOX) Premieres Tuesday, September 17 @8:30/7:30c.

I have a thing for André Braugher (Men Of A Certain Age, Gideon’s Crossing). I think he’s absolutely wonderful. So when I saw that this show got picked up by Fox, I was excited. The show is a comedy about is about how members of a Brooklyn squad deal with a new very straight-laced and tightly wound police chief played by Braugher. The comedy for most of the show comes from the interplay between Braugher and the squad’s lead cop, played by Andy Samberg (Saturday Night Live), who just can’t seem to adjust. This show looks hilarious and I have read nothing but good things about it. Samberg had many great moments on SNL so he will bring the funny.  I just really want them to let Braugher be great. I need him to be on a show that people give a chance. Hopefully this one is it.

2. The Michael J Fox Show (NBC) Premieres Thursday, September 26 @9/8c.

Michael J. Fox hasn’t been the star of a show since he left Spin City in 2000 because of his Parkinson’s disease. He has done a lot of guest stints on different shows since then; my favorite being his arcs on The Good Wife. It’s nice that now he is returning to television full-time and in something that is really good at, comedy. The new show emulates the actor’s life a bit in that it is about a news anchor at the top of his game who decided to leave his job to spend more time with his family. After being at home for 5 years, his family is ready for him to leave the house and return to work. The cast also includes Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad) and Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Treme, Suits). I saw part of this pilot in one of my classes last semester and I really liked it so I can’t wait to see the finished product.
