George Lopez, TV Show Comings and Goings and Bruce Willis Jumps the Shark for Good

Right to the links, we’re loaded today: I can’t say that I watched more than 37 consecutive seconds of any episode of Lopez Tonight. Which also means that I’ve never watched 37 consecutive seconds of anything George Lopez has ever done. So it’s not really moving my needle that the talk show got canned and […]

No Oscar for Stiller, Please!

(FYI, thoughts on the Sons of Anarchy finale are at the bottom because it’s spoiler-heavy¬†…) Suffice it to say, I’m still catching up on 2010¬†movies. Technically, that’s like saying last night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was a quiet little affair — both big understatements. Once the TV season stalls out in about a week or […]

Late Night TV: Can We Stomach Anymore?

Yup, it’s been almost 10 months since we last saw Conan O’Brien in late night TV. So that’s 10 months that we were subject to the getting-old shtick of David Letterman, the politically charged rants of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert and the decidedly unfunny Jay Leno. That’s the state of late night TV these […]

Tron, Caprica, Captain America, Zombies and More …

Have a happy and safe Halloween, everyone! I think I’m starting to come around on Tron Legacy. Even though I didn’t like the first one that much when I saw it when I was like 8, it’s impossible to say the trailers for the new one don’t look incredibly cool. While I don’t necessarily like […]

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 […]

Is Conan Going a Little Too Far?

Team Coco gets to fire the first shot across Jay Leno’s bow. In his first post-Tonight Show debacle television interview, Conan O’Brien told 60 Minutes he wouldn’t have done what Jay Leno did. In Leno’s defense, the way O’Brien is framing it, Leno didn’t have much of a choice. It’s the one thing I agree […]
