DON’T FORGET WHERE IT ALL STARTED: EDDIE MURPHY WILL RETURN TO SNL

I am happy to say that 1984 was definitely a good year, I mean come on I was born and Eddie Murphy was a cast member on the sometimes funny Saturday Night Live.

After being absent from the show for 30 years Mr. Murphy will return to SNL for their 40th anniversary special. Upon leaving SNL their was some bad blood smeared for a few years. Murphy was not happy about the show poking fun at his career in their skits. Murphy told News One that he was not happy about a skit that featured David Spade. In the skit David Spade is holding a picture of Eddie Murphy and he says look a falling star. The comedian has since forgiven all involved with the tasteless joke.

Murphy’s career since SNL has been pretty much a success, he has faced a few knock outs and drag out along the way, but overall the man remains a star.

WHEN YOU ARE ALL OUT OF IDEAS: NOW THERE IS A SHOW ABOUT SEX IN A BOX

WeTV has turned into WE NEED MORE TV SHOWS. These mofo’s have decided to green light a show titled Sex Box. The show sounds pretty self explanatory right? Well 2 allegedly involved individuals has sex in a box and they they come out and talk about it. This is supposed to be couples therapy folks. Sex Box is suprisingly a hit tv show overseas and the WeTV network hopes it will be received the say way in the USA.

The premise of the show has parental groups calling FOUL. The PTC (Parental Television Council) has created a petition to have the show cancelled. PTC believes that is such a provocative show like Sex Box is aired on basic cable television this will just open doors for more extreme content to appear on basic cable. The PTC says if such a show has to be aired on television it should be on premium channels like HBO or SHOWTIME. So far the petition has not put a halt to the shows existence.  If the PTC doesn’t get their way, Sex Box will air on February 27th.

If Sex Box going to far? Will you watch it?

WHAT’S GOING ON IN SHONDA’S BRAIN: IS THERE A SCANDAL SPIN-OFF SHOW IN THE WORKS?

Word on the street is that the Queen of ABC Shonda Rhimes just might have another show up her sleeves.  Her obsession with the secret society B613 may turn into a TV show.

During an interview with the Hollywood Reporter Shonda told her interviewer “I have like three versions of a B613 spinoff in my head that I obsess about constantly”

B613 plays a major role in Scandal. Everything clearly revolves around this organization. What will this show be like? Would Papa Pope be the lead actor? If so will he have a love interest that’s just as crazy as he is? How many more lives will B613 take? OMG I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS! THIS CAN’T BE GOOD FOR MY HEALTH.

If this actually happens I don’t think I can take it. I am still recovering from Shonda’s TGIT.

 

SO DID YOU SEE WHITNEY: WHAT DID YOU THINK?

 

So on the morning of January 17, 2015, I set my DVR to record Lifetime’s Whitney. Ijust had to see it and I planned on watching it, but I wanted to record it just in case my 3 year old son decided to have a temper tantrum during the movie I could watch it later. I took the whole day to get myself together so I could see this Angela Bassett directed movie. I just knew it was going to be good girl. I mean Angela Bassett was running this production. She knows way more about making a movie than Wendy Williams does. So the time came for the movie to come on and I sat with my cup of coffee and I watched and watched and damn it I watched some more. Then the movie ended and I wanted to see more. It was that good that I didn’t want it to end.

A little part of me felt super bad that I thought the movie was great, because this was Whitney Houston’s life. I was sitting their enjoying the re-enactments of Whitney and Bobby‘s life. The Whitney movie was filled with love, betrayal, sex, drugs and rock and roll and I loved it. What the hell is wrong with me? Angela Bassett had lots of pressure on her to deliver a great product for many reasons. Some of them being that Lifetime needed a great biopic since Wendy Williams screwed up the Aaliyah movie, also this is Angela’s directorial debut (the Yale graduate would have not been forgiven if she messed this one up), then their the Houston family who did not approve of this production. Angela called Whitney her friend and I believe all that I saw in this movie, because these are things that happened that only a friend would tell another friend.

I enjoyed this movie. The only changes that I would have made would be the title of the movie. I would have called it Whitney and Bobby: A Love Story.

Did you like the movie?

OH YEAH GIVE US MORE BABY: THESE SHOWS HAVE BEEN RENEWED

The TV God have spoken and they are giving us more more  more of what we like.

FOX has already renewed Gotham, Brooklyn  Nine-Nine and Empire.

 

Gotham is on my to-do list to watch. I have t make sure my three year old is away with grandma so I can binge watch  this one. Congrats on the renewal.

Sorry folks I have not watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine yet, but when I do I will definitely give my opinion on the show. But congrats to the cast and crew members on staying in production.

After only airing 2 episodes Empire has become a hit for FOX and they would be fools not to continue producing this gold mine. Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson back together again, this show is like Hustle and Flow revamped. Their are many story lines to follow, but they are all so worth it. Empire is juicy, gets your glasses ready and Go Sip on That. I love this show.

Good JOb FOX now all you need to do is bring back Gang Related and you will become my favorite channel to watch.

THIS MUST BE BOOT WEEK: THESE SHOWS WERE KICKED TO THE CURB

This week was filled much with lots of drama in the TV world. Some people are headed to the unemployment line. These shows were cancelled.

The USA Network has cancelled the freshman comedy Benched. The shows story line channeled a once highly successful lawyer, who unfortunately was demoted to a public defender. I never watched it so I will not miss it.

 

Rumors have been stewing about the cancellation of  TV One’s R&B Divas Atlanta. The producers of the show have not yet cinfirmed this, they have stated that they are waiting on a decision from the network. They also stated that R&B Divas LA will premiere in February. If this show is cancelled I will not miss it, the story lines are reaching very far to keep our interest. Now I will say that Angie Stone should have her own show, after being publicly humiliated on the reunion show TV One owes her one to set the record straight.

FOX cancelled their new medical drama Red Band Society. Many viewers said the show was just depressing. The show was fulled from the air in November and that was the beginning of the end. There are still 3 unaired episode that need to be aired. For those of you who loved this drama you can watch the unaired episodes on FOX on January 31.

Before VH1’s Sorority Sisters aired there was outrage about this production being created. Mona Scott was in talks to create the reality show. However we hear that the production was taken over by another production company. Everything Mona touches lately seems like it turns to s*it. As I reported before this show was going to be nothing but a mess.

The Greek organizations community was outraged at the thought of such a show being created, then when the trailer was released and all hell broke loose. Petitions were started to get the show shut down, then when the show aired many sorority and fraternity brothers and sisters took their outrage to the doors of VH1’s headquaters and had a peaceful protest. The people have spoken and VH1 is finally listening. Sorority Sisters has been CANCELLED,YAY!!!!!!!!!!

WELL THAT WAS FAST: ROSIE PEREZ IS LEAVING THE VIEW ALREADY

After only four month the spicy Rosie Perez is leaving “The View“. I know that was fast right? Well many didn’t think that Rosie Perez joining the show was a good idea. While on the air show insiders have gossiped about Rosie and her performance. They say she is always messing up and can barely read from the teleprompter. I attended a taping of “The View” and Rosie was great. So those nay-sayers are wrong. Not everyone is going to be a great fit for a show that’s struggling in their ratings. Rosie is currently set to appear in another show, so don’t feel bad for her. The Rosie Show must go on, and its going to Broadway.
