Let’s try and catch up after a crazy week: Now that I’ve got yesterday’s rant about George Lucas’ sale of Lucasfilm to Disney out of my system, it’s time to start looking at the bright side and future possibilities. I’ve come up with five: 1. The Star Wars movies really don’t hold up well. They’re [...]

The Emmys will never have the anticipation or pageantry of the Oscars, but seeing as some of the best acting is being done on television, these awards can sometimes mean just as much as an Oscar.

#RenaissanceoftheSitcom

Also, I’m gonna start a hashtag with this, feel free to use it yourself and get to trending. #RenaissanceoftheSitcom, yo.) There was the reality era. The game show period. The vampire trend.

CBS Continues on its Quest to Kill Comedy

(NOTE: We’re sticking with upfronts this week. So if you wanna read about Battleship director Peter Berg going nuts on an Israeli journalist or all the pageantry of Cannes, looks like you’ll have to do that elsewhere. Up this afternoon is CBS …) You know in those war movies where some powerful guy is plotting out war [...]

Emmy 2011 Preview

See that little ginger girl whose mom remarried some guy named Oscar a couple years ago? She’s the Emmys. The red-headed stepchild of the Oscars. That’s what makes it so weird that I enjoy the Emmys more than the Oscars. It’s more fast-paced, there always seems to be a major award being handed out and people seem to [...]

Want a Good New TV Show? Cable is Where It’s At (still)

Here it comes, the daily promotion for another PopRox live chat. We’ll be doing it July 2 at noon and the first Friday of every month for as long as people keep coming around. I had fun with the last one, so we figured what the heck. There will be more promotion coming up for it [...]

Keeping Up with the Upfronts

Here’s your soon-to-be-daily reminder there will be a PopRox live chat Tuesday at 11 a.m. My blogging will be spotty this week because of some weird scheduling for me, so if you think I’m missing anything, hold on to it and feel free to stop by the chat Tuesday to bring it up. But here [...]

First Piece of the TV Pilot Puzzle Put Together

I keep meaning to alert people when I won’t be posting on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday, but I never get around to it. I have to work on Saturday, so I was off yesterday and didn’t post. Sorry. A couple days late on this, but just saw that the next Batman — I refuse to [...]
