Here are some of the shows I watched while I was home with the stomach flu yesterday.
Archie Bunker’s Place – Archie mellowed, but he was still funny. It was sad without Edith, but I enjoyed seeing Danielle Brisbois, Allan Melvin, and Denise Miller.
Alice – It was a Belle episode, season five I believe. I forgot how damn funny Vera was.
Tattletales and Super Password – Bert Convy and his cute dimples presided over both. Loved seeing Edie McClurg on Super Password.
NFL Honors – Believe it or not, I teared up though most of this touching ceremony that aired the night before the Super Bowl.
Ellen – Sorry, I like Ellen, but think her show is boring.
Superbowl Halftime Show – Watching it after the fact, I think Adam Levine and Maroon Five got unwarranted criticism because the game was so lousy. I nominate Taylor Swift for next year.
As we are in the midst of the coronation of Lady Gaga as the top celebrity, check out her incredible singing and acting performance in A Star is Born, which is now available On Demand.
Co-starring with Bradley Cooper, you will go away realizing that she can act and he can sing.
I would also highly recommend the soundtrack.
Now that the Eagles show is cancelled, here’s what I’ll have more time to watch on Sundays.
In the Kitchen with David – QVC 12 p.m.
Family Guy – Fox 9 p.m.
The Brady Bunch reruns – MeTV – 12 p.m.
Reliable Sources – CNN 11 a.m.
The previous night’s Saturday Night Live – NBC 11:30 p.m.
Kevin Burkhardt, Charles Davis, and Pam Oliver will cover the Eagles-Saints game at 4:40 p.m. on Fox.
I’m surprised that the Fox “A” team of Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, Erin Andrews, and Chris Myers isn’t doing this game. Maybe they wanted former Cowboy Aikman to do the Dallas-Rams game.
Hopefully, Eagles’ Spanish announcer and viral sensation Rickie “No Senor” Ricardo will have another catch phrase ready to go.
I was glad to hear that Days of our Lives was renewed for another year by NBC. Even though the hey day of soaps is long gone, the four that are left on the air – Days of Our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless are hanging in there.
How fitting that on the same day the Eagles pulled off that big victory with the winning touchdown by Golden Tate, the winning movie at the Golden Globes was named “Green Book?”
Heathers – The Paramount Network – Paramount pulled this show three different times due to real life shootings. It should’ve just kept it off the air because it was terrible.
Now and Then – HBO – On paper, this should have worked. Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter headlined, and it was produced by Alan Ball of Six Feet Under Fame. However, this confusing series flopped.
Riverdale – The CW – In year three, this show has lost me. Instead of normal teenage angst, it has turned into a crazy mess.
Camping – HBO – There were some funny moments, thanks go Juliette Lewis, but Lena Dunham’s follow-up to Girls was a disappointment.
Monday Night Football- ESPN – The latest incarnation with Joe Tessitore, Jason Witten, and unfortunately-named Booger McFarland managed to mangle fool-proof football.
GMA Day – ABC – This is the first mis-step in Michael Strahan’s meteoric television career.
Anything on E! – It should be renamed the K! network for Kardashian.
The Alec Baldwin Show – ABC – Baldwin’s tabloid antics didn’t translate to an interesting TV show.
