Don’t forget to enter for tickets to see the Cole Bros. circus next week! I’ve got three sets of four tickets to give away. We’re in finale season and heading into D-Day for bubble TV shows, so we’re all TV all the time today: We’re less than a week from Upfront Week, where we find […]

Finally, a Big News Day

Well it’s about time! There hasn’t been any good non-Charlie Sheen news around here in a while. We’re loaded today, right to it: The only news that could have been worse for the next Wolverine movie would be if Hugh Jackman got pinched for DUI then started popping middle fingers, shouting racial slurs at the officers and […]

The Short Road to Obscurity

You can’t watch an episode of Dukes of Hazzard anymore. It’s impossible to enjoy an old Love Boat episode. It looks like NBC made Miami Vice in some kind of Miami-based time warp. At the time, we watched those TV shows like the networks were crack dealers and we needed our fix. They gave us whatever we […]

Awards Season Already Got You Down? Don’t Worry, Only Two More Months of It

Shorter blog today, but that’s to make time for a full blog tomorrow on the Golden Globe nominations, where I’ll lay 3-1 that How Do You Know, Burlesque and Love and Other Drugs become the Late Season Golden Globe Darlings and nab some nominations but are completely and utterly ignored by every other awards organization, joining […]

The NBC Thursday Dilemma

Congratulations to Carla Parnes of Gilbert, who won the tickets for the Harry Potter midnight show last night! Hope it was a great show! Anyone who did get to any of the shows last night and want to shoot me their quick review, I’ll try to post them later on the blog. Or just leave […]

State of the TV, Part 1

We’re about to get into November Sweeps hardcore in the next couple of days, so you know what that means … Guest stars! Deaths! Births! Hook-ups! Crazy plot twists that seem so unbelievable you’d think Stephen King had been hired as showrunner! That’s what sweeps are all about — doing something so outlandishly loud you can’t […]

Your Fall Viewing Guide

We’ll be in TV overload for a couple weeks here. There isn’t a good movie coming out for more than a month and with the Emmys coming Sunday (picking the winners in Friday’s blog) and a new TV season on the way, there’s gonna be plenty of TV to cover. For now, it’s the fall […]
