Those of us who are paid to follow the TV industry news know that this show was originally called Good Christian Bitches and then changed to Good Christian Belles and then changed to GCB. But honestly, if you were just tuning into this show for the first time, or saw a commercial on TV or spotted it in your listings, would you have a freaking clue what GCB stood for? It's making Cougar Town look like an inspired title by comparison. If the show doesn't make it, place the blame on the name.
I didn't watch Season 1 of I Love Jenni, mun2's unscripted hit about icon Mexican-American superstar singer Jenni Rivera, despite it being the highest rated reality series on Hispanic cable television in 2011. Honestly, I've never dedicated more than a few minutes of my time to anything on mun2. And -- here's the kicker -- I've never heard of Jenni Rivera before (which is slightly shameful, given her numerous achievements in the Latin music world)... but I do have many hours of reality TV-watching under my belt, and can recognize that there's something special about this series.
American Horror Story scores another returning champion.
Bad tippers are the worst.
Any Parks and Recreation episode that features the return of Pawnee's finest news personality, Perd Hapley, a water balloon fight in the Parks office that ends with Andy kamikaze-ballooning Chris, a guest star turn by comedy legend Carl Reiner as Ned Jones (the "grand-godfather" of the town's senior voter block) and the introduction of Kathryn Hahn as a new nemesis for Leslie -- a Washington-seasoned political operative named Jennifer Barkley who is now heading up the Bobby Newman campaign -- gets an instant A from us.
It's the time of year when networks start deciding which shows will get the axe and which ones will live for at least another season. While there are a host of shows in danger of getting cancelled, there are only a few that we'd actually like to see get a reprieve. Here's our wish-list, and don't worry, Terra Nova isn't on here... we've mostly forgotten that show ever existed.
Awake follows detective Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs) as he copes with a car accident that either killed his wife or his son. See, he's living in two very different realities, one where his son Rex (Dylan Minnette) survived and one where the wife Hannah (Laura Allen) did, and he's not entirely sure which is real, so as he doses off each night, he goes from one world to the next and people in both are convinced that he's crazy and/or dreaming.
