The Simpsons: Coming To Homerica (season finale) - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted May 18th 2009 9:17AM
SimpsonsWas there a theme for last night's animated shows on FOX? First The Simpsons has an episode about letting a neighbor (in this case, Ogdenville residents) into Springfield and then building a fence to keep them out. Then King of the Hill had an episode where the guys battled with a new family from Canada. I actually thought that the King of the Hill episode was funnier, though I did love that one joke where Krusty eats one of his new environmentally-friendly burgers, but it's really a stunt-eater eating it in a close-up.

What did everyone else think?

Sneak Peek: Mike Judge's The Goode Family

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 30th 2009 5:02PM
I have to say that even though this trailer for Mike Judge's new (May 27) ABC animated show The Goode Family looks funnier than other recent animated shows, it also features a bunch of characters I just want to punch in the face. I know people like this, and I don't know if I can get though an episode of the show without hating the people I'm probably supposed to be rooting for (I sense these people are probably the type that don't flush their toilets more than a few times a week - gah). I think Brian Doyle Murray's curmudgeonly, un-PC character might be my favorite character on the show.

King of the Hill survives to 250 with barely a mention

by Danny Gallagher, posted Apr 28th 2009 12:18PM
Fox's
One of TV's most underrated animated shows reached a milestone that has been more ignored than the girl with face herpes at the high school prom.

Mike Judge's brilliant King of the Hill surpassed 250 episodes this past week with barely a mention from the network that kept on the air for 13 seasons.

And it seems a little mean, even for Fox, a network so mean that they run their cars on the tears of crying babies.

Now you'll be Sitting Down at 7 PM

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 28th 2009 9:10AM
Sit Down Shut UpIn a move that should come as no surprise to anybody, Fox has shifted the air time for the new Mitch Hurwitz animated comedy Sit Down, Shut Up to 7PM, also known as the "Sunday Night Fox Animated Death Slot." Given the startlingly low ratings the series has gotten in its first two weeks, I can only wonder if anybody will even notice.

Seriously, I watched the premiere (which we reviewed here on TV Squad) and honestly, the rumors are true. The show is cute and quirky (it would probably do well on Adult Swim), but it doesn't have the right kind of funny for Fox Sunday night animation.

In an even bigger insult, Fox is switching the cartoon with its timeslot predecessor King of the Hill, which is now in its final season on the network. It says something when Fox offers greater support to a show that they know won't be back (which, at this stage, now includes Sit Down, Shut Up).

TV Squad Ten: Top Bromances on TV right now

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 18th 2009 11:30AM
Heroes - Hiro and AndoBromances have been around, well, forever really, but you'd never use the term for say, Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte (48 Hours) or Paul Newman and Robert Redford (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid). That just wouldn't be right! And besides that, when do "buddies" turn into "bromantic pals"? Would love to hear your thoughts on that.

At any rate, "bromance" is part of our language now, and it's even the title of an MTV show starring Brody Jenner and his buds.

I'm not ashamed to say I have girl-crushes on a few TV babes (True Blood's Sookie Stackhouse springs to mind), so it's not unfeasible for a guy to have a man-crush on another guy. I don't know if that's true for all these pairings, but since I'm writing this, we'll say it is. Take a look at my top ten bromances on TV right now:

What Rich is thankful for

by Richard Keller, posted Nov 24th 2008 8:02PM

Snoopy is thankful for not deflating. I'm thankful for television.It's that time of year again, isn't it? That brief period between the humongous holidays of Halloween and Christmas that television and retail outlets have forgotten about. I talk about Thanksgiving, of course. The holiday of football games, unbuttoned pants, family arguments, and giant Snoopy balloons. It is also the time to give thanks.

Thanks for what? Well, we aren't trading chickens for a gallon of gas yet, so that's something. And, we still have television, which we can eventually trade in for chickens in order to get a gallon of gas. But, since our television shows are more important than driving in many cases, we may just start riding our bikes and eat peanut butter sandwiches instead.

With those happy thoughts, here is what I am thankful for when it comes to the flat screen idiot box.
