We could blame our foul mood on the weather or the economy or, heck, even on our doctor’s refusal to up our dosage of happy pills. But we suspect the real cause of our malaise is that some of the TV-related news these days is just bumming us out. Such as? Well, here are just five examples.
HAPPY ENDINGS ain’t coming back.
Creator David Caspe told TVLine that a deal to continue the show on USA was “as close as it could come without happening.” We’re looking for someone to blame, and the closest we can come is to assume that, to quote the beloved show, “the curse of Max’s lovehandles has struck again!”
Meredith Viera is getting a talk show.
While we’re sure Ms. Viera is a lovely lady, the last thing television needs is yet another chatfest.
Chris Pratt went and got hot on us.
We’ve loved crushing on the PARKS AND RECREATION star and even had the nerve to think of him as “getable” thanks to his everyman physique. Then on Sunday, he went and posted an instagram pic of his buffed out bod, a result of “six months [of] no beer.”
Sure, Elfman is adorable and all, so it’s not like we hate that she replaced Parker Posey on NBC’s upcoming sitcom GROWING UP FISHER. But we find Posey so much more interesting an actress that it’s kinda like ordering lobster and being served imitation crab meat.
