Let’s All Assess the Future Prospects of Will Smith

Post Memorial Day, get-back-to-work links. So if they’re a little off … whatever. Let’s all bury the potential profitability of the summer movie season because two troubled productions — Battleship and MIB3 — performed poorly over the last two weeks. Oh, really? A movie that was undergoing constant script revisions, took a planned or unplanned month-long hiatus […]

How PR Works in Today’s World of Entertainment

Links: UPDATE, 2:25 p.m.: Just thought I’d throw this in here that Glee (fourth season), Raising Hope (third season) and New Girl (second season), all PopRox-approved shows, have been renewed by Fox for the 2012-13 TV season. None of it is that big of a surprise, although Raising Hope’s ratigns aren’t exactly fantastic and it loses a […]

Won’t the Real Don Draper Please Stand Up, Please Stand Up, Please Stand Up

Quick hits today, let’s go … There was a time when Nip/Tuck was my favorite TV show. I was obsessed with it, and mostly, with Christian Troy. Not necessarily Julian McMahon, who played Christian, but the character of Christian. He was hysterical. Everything he said was either off-the-wall funny or really, really important. Self-centered and shallow, but […]

Roger Sterling Can’t Remember What Happened. Why Should You?

Time to play catch-up since we’ve gone without links for a while. And by the by, it’s just four days until the Mad Men premiere. Did someone say Mad Men? Of course I did! It’s not insane at all for people to wonder whether the viewing public will come back to Mad Men when it […]

TV News for Mad Men, The Office, Community and Your Official Winner for Best Pilot of the TV Season

Probably gonna be pretty short today, sorry: UPDATE, 1:15 p.m.: Davy Jones of the Monkees died today. Tear. Maybe poor health is why the Monkees canceled their tour last year — including a date at the Mountain Laurel Center. Oh wait, The Mount. The band’s comeback in the 80s was nothing short of incredible since they hadn’t […]

The Trouble with Taking Six Years to Finish a Movie

Monday links, and don’t forget about the live chat on Friday at 11 a.m.! There’s been a Trouble with Cali sighting! There’s been a Trouble with Cali sighting! The movie, shot partly in the Poconos by Gilbert resident Paul Sorvino in 2006, is finally hitting the (kinda) big screen when it premieres at the Sedona […]

Modern Family Swearing, LL Rising, Cougar Town Returning and More

Normally, I’d take any opportunity to stick it to the Hollywood studio machine. So under normal circumstances, this Internet blackout thing would be right up my alley. But a couple of things intervened: 1. Because of my schedule (took a four-day weekend for my nephew’s first birthday in Virginia Beach, I’m not apologizing for that), I haven’t put […]

Winter TV to Be Excited For

(This is a preview of Sunday’s PopRox column in the Pocono Record.) Winter used to be a TV wasteland. Networks premiered their best shows in September and used midseason replacements as filler to get them through the year. Not anymore. The winter season now means more good TV shows starting up than ever before, so here […]

Everything up until this point has been Memorial Day. It’s hot, we have it off, but it’s not really summer. Golden Globes Nominations Day is like June 21 — […]

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 […]
