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 [...]

Fall TV Preview, Part 1

It’s time for one of my favorite column gimmicks of the year — the official PopRox fall TV preview. Good timing since the fall TV schedule gets going tonight. It’s the place where you can hear things like How to Be a Gentleman “might be the greatest sitcom cast assembled in at least the last 10 [...]

Comic-Con, Captain America, Glee and the Emmys

Tons to get to playing catch-up from my vacation last week, let’s hit it: It’s a waste of time to get in to how geeks became the rulers of the Hollywood world, but this weekend is our Christmas — Comic-Con. I’ve never been and never will, not because I’ve got two kids and it’s 4,000 [...]

Linking a Thursday

Some links: I’m prefectly OK that this new Criticis Choice Television Awards thing pretty much reads like my weekly viewing calendar. If that makes me snooty, so be it. Sixteen of the 20 nominated shows are in my rotation — even if I really soured on Louie by the end of the first season and [...]

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 [...]

Where Does South Park Go from Here?

We say this because we love — South Park is at a crossroads. The animated sitcom that belongs in any discussion of “Best Show of the Last 20 Years,” may be running out of gas. The consistent issuance of classic-type episodes on a week-by-week basis hasn’t happened since 2004′s eighth year, and a season is [...]

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 [...]
