TV.com's Swell-o-vision vs. Hell-o-vision (October 1)

Here's what was out of sight and just not right on the small screen this week.

Swell


... Sweet Dee dancing like a used-car-lot inflatable tube man on
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Sometimes video (below) is better than words.




... Viewer drop-offs for bad shows
Ratings drops of more than 20 percent drops for $#*! My Dad Says and Outsourced indicate that maybe we aren't doomed.


... One heck of a season premiere for The Good Wife
The talk of "TV's best drama" is well-deserved.


... Chloroform and Community
Annie can put us under anytime.




... The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret
The show was created by Arrested Development alum David Cross and makes its American debut tonight at 10:00 pm on IFC. Watch it! Because it's actually funny!

Hell


... Jacob Ben Israel on Glee
His orgasmic reaction to the club's performance of "Toxic" made us want to stuff him into a locker. Or a shallow grave.


... The death of news anchor Diane Simmons
Yes, from Family Guy. She and Tom Tucker were so good together!


... Jimmie Johnson will not survive
It was the coach's dream, and it all ended after just three weeks. Well, back to your million-dollar mansion, JJ.


... All the build-up for Cam and Mitchell's kiss on Modern Family
It shouldn't have been that big a deal in the first place, but kudos to the producers for handling the situation gracefully and not going overboard when it actually did happen.




... The news of a forthcoming Munsters remake
Bryan Fuller and all his originality is stooping to this?

What did you love and hate on TV this week?

Absolutely loved Sweet Dee's dancing with the tube man -- she did a great job of copying the moves! "Always Sunny" is always funny. "The League" afterward is another classic. FX is becoming one of my favorite networks, with "Rescue Me," "Louie," "Always Sunny," "The League" and "Terriers." Also love "Community," but it's already getting close to jumping the shark. As for the gay kiss on "Modern Family," it was so discreet I totally missed it.

Could we give a lifetime Hell-O-Vision award to directors and shows that show characters with empty coffee cups pretending they're full and then swinging them around and swilling from them in ways that would get them splashed at best or scalded at worst. Most recent was one of the worst: repeat offender Covert Affairs.

Can't see a Munsters remake being to great. Maybe The Addams Family. I don't get Glee. It's not all that and I love musicals very much. I will stick with NCIS in my 8/7 pm time slot

Community video was quite amusing

Don't judge the Munsters remake before it's done. Bryaan Fuller's a genius it might be amazing.

I don't understand why people like Community better than Outsourced. They seem pretty similar in humor actually. It'd be nice if someone would explain it to me. Doesn't matter, I went into watching Outsourced knowing that no one else like it and it would probably be canceled. I agree Chasexy, Supernatural was awesome this week. The season premier was a little off, but this episode was cool.

I always found Tom Tucker funnier so I won't horribly miss Diane. I really liked that whole episode though.

Did we learn nothing from "The Munsters Today?"

One gotta wonder why Stewie didnt kill Lois right there. To easy? And if he knew of Dianes plan all along, and allowed the kills? Throughout entire episode he was like complaining about his clothes, and there were scenes when he wasnt there when Diane returned to the group.

I thought the best part of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia this week was the "implications" conversation between Mac and Dennis, but Dee's dancing was great as well.

That was a really funny scene from Community!!!

Community is still pretty stale past the Paintball episode. I found the Modern Family episode infinitely more likable. That's probably because I didn't view it as "omg they're building up to gay kiss" and just a standard person who has a problem with PDA's story. Perhaps time to think about why you thought so much about it being a gay kiss.
