Tread Very, Very Carefully, NBC

Major league catch-up day today, I don’t think I’ve done a links column in more than a week. Sorry about that. If you’re in to the whole better-late-than-never thing, hop on board because you’ll love this one: Anyone else downright giddy thinking about the possible Dumpster fire that could be the latest NBC late-night succession […]

More of the Most Devoted Pop Culture Fanbases

I loved the idea behind this Vulture ranking of the 25 most devoted pop culture fan bases. It’s a really good read and very informative if you have the time to go through all 25. It’s actually a really good piece of what I define as Internet entertainment journalism these days. It helps that I […]

Breaking Down the Seth MacFarlane Choice

(This is an extended preview of the PopRox column that will appear in Sunday’s Pocono Record. It’s already kinda old now, so you can only imagine how old it’s going to seem on Sunday. Better enjoy it now.) Say this for the people who run the Academy Awards, they’re certainly thinking out of the box. […]

Predicting the Holiday Weekend Box Office

Some programming notes. There’s a new crop of trailers that have come out in the last month, so I’m gonna be reviewing a bunch of them Wednesday. On Thursday I’m putting out my top 10 TV shows of the year list and then they’ll be in Sunday’s PopRox column in the paper. We’ll try to […]

You’ll Have Him to Kick Around Some More

Howard Stern disciples finally can breathe after about 18 months of open discussion on what the future holds for their messiah. During his Thursday morning show, Stern announced he’ll be staying on SiriusXM for the next five years — financial terms undisclosed — ending months of speculation about his radio future. That doesn’t mean the questions […]

The Future of Howard Stern … at Least What We Think It Is

(FYI — no links today, this is a full blog about Howard Stern’s future. If that doesn’t interest you, just leave now, no hard feelings. I’ll have nothing but news and links on Friday.) By the end of the month, the world should know Howard Stern’s plans. The operative word is “should.” The self-titled King of […]

In Other News, Nightmare on Elm Street is Fiction

You’ve already read tons of interviews for The Social Network now, so it’s silly to cram another one down your throat. Suffice it to say I really, really liked it. But as much as this movie is a commentary on the founding of one of the most popular Internet sites ever, it’s real story vs. the […]

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 […]

Running a little short on time today, so one quick plug then on to some abbreviated links: Friday at 12:30 p.m. we’re having a live fitness chat in conjunction with the Great Pocono Weight Race. Elevations Health Club trainer April Pansy will be online answering all of your fitness questions, and I’ll be along for the ride moderating. She’s going […]
