TVWriter™ Post of the Week

As determined by TVWriter™, of course.

Here they are, the TVWriter™ posts TeamTVWriter likes best for the week ending today, June 22nd:

I’ve Tried to Watch FAIRLY LEGAL

Raise Your Hand if You Love BREAKING BAD

We Refuse to Make “Pan Am is Grounded” Jokes

Why KNIFEMAN Won’t Work

Still Infatuated After All These…Weeks

The Doctor Puppet! The Doctor Puppet! More episodes, more conveniently scheduled, and every bit as exciting as that other Who thing:

I really needed some culture so I headed into Manhattan to visit Lincoln Center. The American Ballet Theatre was performing Romeo and Juliet, but I decided not to see it. When I get my TARDIS I think I’ll pay ol’ Will another visit and catch the original.

See it all

More Proof of the Existence of a Benevolent, um, God (Goddess?)

We have nothing to add to this:

Part 1 of NBC’s Justin Bieber: All Around the World special on Wednesday night drew 3.3 million total viewers and a 0.9 demo rating with them oldsters in the 18-49 demo. That puts it 47 percent below what the Peacock’s recent Adele music special scored.

NBC’s Biebfest thus only bested The CW’s Top Model repeats in the pre-bedtime 8 o’clock hour, trailing shows such as Dogs in the City and ABC sitcom reruns.

EDITED TO INCLUDE THE LATEST “NEWS”: Opening the night, Part 2 of NBC’s aforementioned Justin Bieber: Around the World special drew 3.1 mil and a 0.8, down a tenth in the demo from Wednesday and putting it in fourth place ahead of only The CW’sBreaking Pointe (which gained a few eyeballs, hitting 910K). Fox’s Take Me Out (3.15 mil/1.2), meanwhile, saw gains of 20 and 9 percent.

Is This Really the Easy Way to Throw Out Clichés?

Yes, it’s true. We actually stayed away from ironically using a cliché to present this program that enables writers to “scan your work for monitored words, clichés, and overused phrases and words.”

It seems like a great idea. An “automated tool…that scans your…work…and hightlights areas that might need closer attention.” We’re going to try it and hope some of you will too because if SmartEdit can create better writers we can finally rid the world of the Number 1 Enemy of Good Writing in the world since the Dawn of Time.

That’s right, English comp teachers. We’re talkin’ ’bout you.

Munchman sees THE SOUL MAN

…and I feel mine sucked right out.

I’d call this the worst sitcom on television, but where would that leave the rest of TV Land’s “Must Miss TV” lineup?

If you love writing so bad that it makes 50 Shades of Grey look like Nabakov (sit back and imagine that for awhile), you’ll still hate THE SOUL MAN.  Think, HOT IN CLEVELAND w/o Betty White. Or HAPPILY DIVORCED w/every part played by Fran Drescher.

They don’t make a screen small enuf to hold all the heart, soul, and talent in this baby. It doesn’t stream, it dribbles.

You get the point.
