Finally!! A fun OSCARS Show!

I didn’t even know the OSCARS were on last night. I simply turned on my tv to watch “THE AMAZING RACE” and when the tv came on, it was on ABC. I was watching the red carpet interviews before I changed it to “THE AMAZING RACE”, thinking to myself, “oh no! No “Desparate Housewives” tonight because of this boring crap!”

Well, guess what? I loved the show! I turned the channel at 8:30 pm, when there were commercials of course, and Hugh Jackman had just started his musical number. It was hilarious and fun!! Well, needless to say I was shocked.

I really don’t like the OSCARS or the OSCAR nominees. I never follow it because it is just boring for me. None of the movies ever nominated are my cup of tea. Ok, so this year maybe there were a couple I would watch. I can tell you for sure that “SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE” has peaked my interest. But I never would have known, had I not watched the show. All because of Hugh Jackman! Yes, he made the OSCARS fun!

Whoever made this choice for host has my appreciation and congratulations!! Stick to this style of show and you may raise your ratings after all.

Kudos for Pushing Daisies

Pushing Daisies keeps receiving accolades even after it’s cancellation.

I found this one today.

The writer voices my sentiments exactly.

Pushing Daisies Cliffhanger

Do you believe Ned’s Dad is back?!! And he is no other than George Hamilton!!! WOW, this was going to be a great story line indeed. Too bad ABC won’t let it play out!!

I just loved Wednesday’s show, gripping until the end. Though I do wonder how they will tie up all these loose  ends in the last episode.

I keep praying another network will pick up the show, but it looks like Bryan Fuller, the shows creator, gave up on it to go back to HEROES, another show that is on the brink.

I guess people just don’t like to be entertained with really creative, funny and compelling story lines. The instant gratification generation just wants to be pummelled with reality stink. Let’s just hope and pray that some of our other faves like LOST, Desperate Housewives and some other greats can make it. Let’s help get the reality crap off the air by changing the channel or turning off the idiot box when they come on. Maybe that way some culture will come back into our lives.

Interesting article on EW about this, read it here.

Another one of my favorites cancelled by ABC

Eli Stone was another one of my favorite new shows and it also got the ax. Like I said, won’t be watching any new shows.

This season I’ve been hit the hardest than any other season with cancellations. Pushing Daisies, Eli Stone, My Own Worst Enemy.  It’s just too much!!! I’m done with new shows!! Done I tell you!!

Read the story here: http://www.tvguide.com/News/Daisies-Eli-Dirty-1000045.aspx

Pushing Daisies is cancelled.

Well, ABC did it again! Cancelled one of the best shows on the air in a long time.

I guess we will continue to watch the same old recycled shows, since the execs at these stupid stations only care about ratings.

On my end, I know I won’t be watching any new shows. I just don’t like getting into a show and then it’s pulled out from under me. I will watch what is currently out there and when I see a new show has been on for more than 2 seasons I’ll get into it. That’s how I did it for Ugly Betty and I like it that way.

Anyway, a standing ovation for one of my favorite shows!! Bravo! Pushing Daisies, Bravo!!
