More Real Nielsens
You may have notice I've been straying from some of my weekly posts lately. Not necessarily on purpose. Just been busy. Or maybe distracted. So I guess you could almost consider the fact that I have a Grateful entry week as something to be grateful for in and of itself.
Anyway, I was thinking the other day that it was time for a quick update on the shows I'm feeling as of late. Had to do it now before the fall season gets underway and some of these go back into hiatus. Which is also why the list is only 7 shows. Not too much good viewing to pick from in the summer...
Thank you DVR. I would have forgotten both the night and time this show came up were it not for my DVR recordings already set up in advance. The more I watch this show the more I want to see this cat's stand-up live. I suppose I better find a way to do it soon before his ticket prices start going thru the roof like Kevin Hart's did.
It is looking like they're off to a pretty rocky start so far this season. Kicking off the season with an episode about hiking up a cold arse mountain did not help them at all. The one thing they still have going for them is the cast. As long as they have Voodoo on there (yes...dude will always be Voodoo to me. Still haven't taken the time to learn his real name) they're alright with me
5. Shark Tank
For some reason they only seem to be showing a new episode every couple of weeks. In between that they're playing reruns. Maybe they're trying to ration the new ones out slowly? It's fine with me because I somehow missed a lot of the older episodes they're showing. I love how some of these folks have some really awful ideas thinking they're going to get some money. Those moments are like the audition rounds of "American Idol". I'm still cracking up over the guy who tried to get money for a manual push lawn mower.
4. Friday Night Lights
It pains me to have this one down here this low. They can take solace in the fact that for so long they were constantly in the top three. "FNL" was always one of the best consistent dramas on television. I HATED that this was their final season. What I hated even more was that Smash was the one character that didn't get to come back at all during that final season. That cost them to fall down a slot or two in these rankings. Yeah...I'm just a little petty that way.
3. How I Met Your Mother
A while back when I did these rankings I put "King of Queens" on here even though it's been off the air for years. It was because I was turned on to it by the the reruns I was seeing in syndication and was loving it. The same thing happened with this show. At least it's still on in real-time also. But OMD those reruns from the seasons that I missed are HILARIOUS! So glad that E hipped me to this show. It seems like every single episode is legend....wait for it...
It's really hard to go wrong when you have a show that specializes in showing all the idiocy that is out there on the internet. But to add Daniel Tosh as the instigator is absolutely priceless. He's one of the few people that can get away with saying pretty much anything. I just wish the season wasn't so short. I swear he just started with new episodes then it's back on break again. At least he's coming back in the fall so we won't have to wait that long for new episodes. It's one of the few reasons I would want the fall to hurry up and get here.
1. Franklin and Bash
I remember back in April when they were running promos for this show non-stop. And it wasn't even slated to start for over a month. But even then I knew it was destined for greatness. Every role that Breckin Meyer does is always epic. I was even more amazed at the chemistry he and Mark-Paul Gosselaar have as if they've known each other for years. Plus, how can you go wrong with a show where one of the episodes features Tommy Chong as a judge in a case dealing with marijuana? I've been looking for a show to fill that "Boston Legal" void and here it is.
