‘Key and Peele’ Is A Huge Success…Sort Of

30 Oct

Following the premiere of the critically lauded sketch-comedy show Key and Peele in early 2012, we’ve encountered a very odd issue that hasn’t been seen in other Comedy Central programs. While the sketches that Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele perform are hits on Youtube — with the “East-West College Bowl” skit at the top of the list — this success has not translated nearly as well to television ratings.

According to TV By The Numbers, last week’s episode of the show was well below other Comedy Central shows such as South Park, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, even though its time slot, sandwiched between South Park and The Daily Show, should keep it at least at the same level of those two programs.

Batman Shows No Sign Of Slowing In Games Or Movies

27 Oct

With the release yesterday of both Batman: Arkham Origins  and Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate for handhelds, it appears that the Batman brand is now more popular than ever before. Both Batman’s games and his movies have had very big ups and downs. Most fans of the Caped Crusader died a little inside when Joel Schumacher took Tim Burton’s film series and destroyed it with an overly campy tone and nippled costumes, and well, this was once a Batman game.

TLC Biopic Is #1 In Adults Eyes But Not Everyone’s

24 Oct

On Monday, October 21st, VH1 premiered their TLC biopic called ‘CrazySexyCool’ which took  in 4,5 million viewers. That’s a great number for the movie because it is now VH1’s highest rated original movie ever and for 2013 it is the most watched original cable movie…for the ADULT DEMOGRAPHIC (which is from 18 – 49). I keep seeing deceiving headlines calling it the number one original cable movie of the year and then mentioning that it’s only number one in the 18 – 49 demographic. It’s all understandable seeing how you have to grab readers attention somehow but either way its a little misleading since it’s not the most watched original cable movie this year of all demographics.

Chinese Food Quickly Becomes Humanity’s Biggest Threat

24 Oct

Loyal readers, the entire internet-capable human race is at war — not with an unjust government or a group of terrorists — but with Chinese Food. Why is that capitalized? Because it’s not the MSG or salt that has everyone up in arms; it’s the latest in a long line of child-starring music videos from Patrice Wilson, otherwise known as “Pato” or “Fat Usher.” Does that name sound familiar? Remember the rapping guy in Friday?  Well, he’s back, and this is his latest piece of…work.

Let that sink in.

Alison Gold isn’t actually new to Wilson’s work. She’s also part of the hippest hippity-hop group that ever did hip-hop!

The subtitles at the bottom of the video inexplicably change from English to German to Russian to Hebrew and there are geisha in the Chinese restaurant.  And of course, who else would be inside the panda suit but Patrice Wilson himself!

“Get me broccoli while I play Monopoly.” They just don’t write lyrics like that anymore. And by that, I mean that no one has ever been stupid enough to write lyrics like that before.

Chinese Food already has over 10.5 million views in about a week and a half, and it doesn’t look to be slowing down. This level of international cooperation for the destruction of evil hasn’t been seen since the second World War.

And now I’m hungry.

‘South Park’ Becomes Power Outages Next Victim

19 Oct

This past Wednesday, if you were like me then when 10pm came around, the TV was on Comedy Central and a new episode of ‘South Park’ was supposed to come on. Instead an old ‘South Park’ episode, by the name of ‘Scott Tenorman Must Die’, came on instead. However, before the episode was supposed to come on, Comedy Central had announced that ‘South Park’ creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone missed their deadline (wish I would of heard about it beforehand). But why? It was because of a power outage at South Park Studios prevented them from finishing the show in time of their deadline.

It’s crazy to find out that Parker and Stone take about five days to make an episode and then turn the show in right before it goes on air. I knew their was an interesting reason for why their episode topics were always current. But anyways, I was highly confused and upset when I thought I was supposed to be watching a new episode of ‘South Park ‘ but just an old episode was playing (I was ready to laugh non-stop after watching the previous weeks episode, ‘World War Zimmerman’, which was HILARIOUS). Stupid Power Outage! Actually, many people probably remember that this situation isn’t the first time a power outage interrupted a TV airing this year.
