By comparison to Modern Family, which is arguably one of, if not the best family-centric comedy on television, The Middle seems a bit under-praised. The single-camera comedy is not only regularly funny, but also captures the humor in the life of a completely average family.
ABC had a good night last night in the ratings, though given the lack of much competition, that’s not all that surprising. Wednesday night saw the return of ABC’s two-hour comedy block, followed by an hour of delicious, soapy drama with Revenge, and viewers tuned in.
While next week’s episode of The Middle will see Frankie going green, the week of Thanksgiving will feature a guest appearance by Molly Shannon (Saturday Night Live). We have some photos from the episode for you to check out.
In two weeks, ABC’s The Middle explores the world of musical theater, and is also set to include not one, but two former Saturday Night Live stars. We have some details and an excellently green photo from the episode, which should give you some indication of what musical will be featured in the episode.
The Heck family returns to ABC tonight in a special hour-long premiere of The Middle. Titled “Forced Family Fun,” the episode follows the Hecks on a family camping trip, plus, we get a look back at Frankie and Mike’s honeymoon. The season premiere also marks the small screen reunion of Patricia Heaton and her former Everybody Loves Raymond co-star and on-screen husband Ray Romano.
Among the comedies I’m most looking forward to seeing return is ABC’s The Middle. Not only do we have the Heck family photo to share with you for Season 3, but we also have a couple photos of Ray Romano, who will be reunited with his former Everybody Loves Raymond on-screen wife Patricia Heaton in the season premiere.
When I picture someone as dreamy-looking as Chord Overstreet guest-starring on ABC’s The Middle, I immediately picture Sue Heck’s social awkwardness going into overdrive as she sets eyes on the former Glee star. While that may be in the cards, it sounds like Overstreet will be playing a role in a different Heck kid’s story when he appears in the comedy series.
ABC has all of their ducks (and planes, angels, dancing celebrities, and modern families) in a row for the Fall 2011 primetime TV lineup. The network announced the schedule today, which includes super-sized premieres for Modern Family, The Middle, and Grey’s Anatomy, among others.
In addition to better weather, spring also brings the conclusion to many TV shows for the season (and in some cases, forever.) ABC released the season finale schedule for their current primetime line-up, which includes a double-dose of Desperate Housewives and Cougar Town.
Since they’re the network’s top drama and comedy respectively among the younger, money-making crowd, there would have been quite an uproar among fans if ABC even waited the whole season to renew, let along actually passed
If our list of our favorite female TV characters from 2010 tells us anything, it’s that there are some truly fantastic women on TV these days!
We’re at the midway point of August and while that might mean the countdown to cooler weather and the return to school or work has already begun for some, it also means we’re just a few weeks away from the start of the new TV season. Up ahead is the primetime schedule for the Fall 2010 season.
The past several days have seen several big renewals for freshmen series. TNT is dipping back for ten more episodes of Men of a Certain Age, while ABC is happy enough with their Wednesday comedy lineup, they've renewed all three of them. CBS just gave the nod to newcomers NCIS: LA and The Good Wife
I'm confused, ABC. First, you renewed Better Off Ted, despite disappointing ratings last season because you liked the creative energy and direction you were seeing. The show came back stronger than ever this year, but has continued to perform poorly. But rather than try to nurture it, you appear to be hanging it out to dry.
This Wednesday, ABC will premiere their new comedy, The Middle, which stars Patricia Heaton as a frantic mom with three rather bizarre children and a husband who manages a quarry.
