Tuesday Nights Aren’t Big Enough for All of Those Sitcoms

Wednesday links, and tomorrow brings us the blockbuster edition of the holiday movie preview, fyi: One of the biggest ratings battles coming in to this year was destined to be Tuesday nights between 9 and 10, when Fox, ABC and NBC were all airing sitcoms that not only were good, but were all pretty much [...]

Adios, Office

The worst part about being on vacation is hearing news and saying, “I need to get that up on my blog, prontissimo!” but then realizing that it’s much more important to take a nap. I pretty much unplugged last week, so let’s try and catch up as best we can: The departure of The Office [...]

Scatterbrained Links

After writing this for an hour or so, I realized I’m especially cynical and critical and nasty today. Just be aware of that as you read … In today’s good riddance to bad rubbish news – The Killing has finally, mercifully been killed. But then the news gets worse, as it’s being shopped around to another [...]

Avengers, Dumb and Dumber 2, Chevy Chase and Other Stuff You’ll Hear About 50 Zillion Times Today

Lots to catch up on: There’s about a zero percent chance Stroudsburg could be the choice for an advanced screening of Avengers in two weeks. But that doesn’t mean we can’t try, right? There is nothing really on the Avengers Facebook page for this contest. So maybe it’s kind of a secret thing. The story says [...]

The Most Disappointing TV, Ever

(This is an extended preview to the PopRox column in the Sunday Pocono Record.) Every, single, solitary time I see these ads for The Killing, it reminds me of just how angry the show made me last year. That puts me in a bad mood and in need of some purging, so here are five of [...]

Name That Fantasy Football Team

In the next few weeks, many of you will be asked to make one of the biggest decisions of your year. It’s one that can’t be stepped into lightly. It takes careful planning, a considerable amount of thought and plenty of ingenuity. It will define who you are in the eyes of friends and family [...]

Superman or Sam Axe? You Decide

Links: Wait, this is Henry Cavill as Superman? He doesn’t look anything like the publicity shots we saw when he was announced as the new Superman. He looks about 10 years older than he did then. He just turned 27, and he looks like he’s 35, easy. He looks like Bruce Campbell’s twin brother in that [...]

Marketing 101 and Green Lantern

It’s been a pretty crazy time in PopRox land, and that’s all I’m gonna say about it instead of boring everyone with the details. I didn’t keep, like, 10 of the promises I made last week. And that’s a lot of broken promises. So instead of making any more that I won’t keep, I can [...]

TV’s Most Influential

You won’t see many more subjective lists than this, Adweek’s 100 most influential shows of all time. It’s a decent list for the most part, but a frustrating one nonetheless. I feel for Adweek, they probably took months to put this list together and justify each pick, just like I had to do over the [...]
