Upfront Update and Finale Watch Time

I just can’t get to local links today, we have too much going on in TV. And I’m too invested in it. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from studying my click-throughs, it’s that you guys love yourselves some renew/cancel news. and I am nothing if not an accommodating man. So here’s the latest at each network […]

Wrong Number on Ringer

A word of pre-warning, there is an additional warning at the bottom. But in my review for Ringer further down the page, I give away the twist ending. And I don’t feel even remotely bad about it. I just want to make sure everyone knows it’s coming. Links: Remaking classic movies is one thing, it tends […]

Spader or No Spader?

(Programming note: There’s a good chance this is my last blog until July 18 or 19, I’m on vacation next week. If I get the chance, I may blog Thursday morning about the Emmy nominees, but can’t guarantee it. Have a good week everyone!) Right now all we can do is blindly speculate as to […]

Last of the Upfronts: The CW

Just got the news. Randy “Macho Man” Savage died in a car accident in Florida. You almost wanna say, “Whew!” that he died in a car accident instead of a drug overdose or steroid complications, but that’s pretty lame to think right now. Macho Man was in my top 5 wrestlers of all time, easy. […]

When Good Actors Leave Good TV Shows

It happens all the time. An actor or actress gets too big for the small screen, or just doesn’t want to work on their TV show anymore. So they announce far in advance that they’re leaving, most times as a contract ploy. Usually, when you hear, “I’m probably leaving the show after this year,” you […]

A First Time for Everything. Like Talking About American Idol.

Sorry no PopRox yesterday. I’ll be back tomorrow, have a quick-hitter Thursday, then we’re live-chattin’ at noon Friday. Thursday I’m going to post the live chat expectations after some of the problems we had last time, too. And I will now start the shameless and constant Facebook and Twitter reminders. As always in Friday’s chat, I’ll be […]

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 […]

the tv bubble

It won’t be until May that we start getting a look at next year’s TV schedules. But this is the time when network executives start getting ideas in their heads about what shows they’re keeping and what shows they’re getting rid of. The CW made some early pick-ups yesterday to make sure fans knew shows like […]
