Tomatocalypse 2015

You may have noticed lighter-than-usual posting the past couple of weeks. That's partly because a lot of my regular subject matter is on break, but it's also because the annual Tomatocalypse was nigh.

@midnight Power Rankings (Aug 17-20)

Oh, swet Jebus. If you're gonna go on a twoo week hiatus, go out with a show like Thursday's, which was an all-time classic by any standards. And it capped a perfectly decent week of solid episodes. But goddamn, Natasha Leggero knocked it out of the park with the joke of the... month at the very least with her Guy Fieri slam. Also, first-time guest Sam Morril did an amazing job, and made me really look forward to his impending episode of The Half Hour.

1. Natasha Leggero (Th)
2. Andy Daly (Th)
3. Sam Morril f(T)
4. Derek Waters (Th)

Weekly Wrasslin' Not Wroundup (Aug 17-20)

Very little happened on the shows this week, and I haven't even had time to watch Smackdown. NXT featured a record EIGHT opponents already in the ring in a one hour show. Raw featured the return of Dolph Ziggler and that's about it. So instead of a Wroundup, let me get my predictions in for the two huge shows this weekend, starting with NXT Takeover: Brooklyn

Apollo Crews vs. Tye Dillinger

@midnight Power Rankings (Aug 10-13

Another VERY good week for @midnight. You may notice Michelle Buteau at the top of this week's rankings. You may watch the show and wonder why that is. Well, you see, the ratings are capricious and arbitrary. I thought she got robbed by being knocked out first. It's part of a mildly troubling anecdotal pattern I've been seing of non-white-non-dudes getting the red light a LOT. At least the ones who aren't Ron Funches. Plus, I'm kind of folding her appearance on Denzel Washington Is The Greatest Actor Of All Time, Period into this because, well, I can.

Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup (Aug 10-13)

Next weekend's a big one for WWE. On Saturday we have the NXT show, before their biggest ever crowd in Brooklyn. And the next night is the four-hour Summerslam. Needless to say, the first show is way more interesting. But we'll start with the main roster stuff.

Weekly Wrassslin' Wroundup (Aug 3-6)

With Ultima Lucha on the books, and Lucha Underground going dark until sometime between October and January (assuming the guy behind it is right that the chances of a Season 2 are 99.9%), the Weekly Wrasslin' Wroundup will be limited to just WWE unless I get so desperate I start watching Ring of Honor again.

So, with the runup to Summerslam, where do our feuds and stories stand?


@midnight Power Rankings (Aug 3-6)

I don't know if there was a deliberate attempt to load up this week's @midnight's with top comedy talent to take advantage of the added attention to the network from Jon Stewart's final week, but if that was the plan, then mission accomplished. This was a damn fine week of shows.

Ultima Lucha

Many will say that the most important finale of the week was Jon Stewart's exit from The Daily Show on Thursday. But while I was watching that Thursday night, I was wearing my recently-acquired Lucha Underground t-shirt in celebration of the greatest finale of all time, ULTIMA LUCHA.

Lucha Underground's finale was everything that made Lucha Underground great. It wrapped up stories, started new stories, and was chock-full of first-rate in-ring action.
