We think the exact same things!” Exactly how many comebacks is Britney Spears allowed to have before we can […]

Finally, a Big News Day

Well it’s about time! There hasn’t been any good non-Charlie Sheen news around here in a while. We’re loaded today, right to it: The only news that could have been worse for the next Wolverine movie would be if Hugh Jackman got pinched for DUI then started popping middle fingers, shouting racial slurs at the officers and […]

Thanks for a Great Year!

This is probably the last post of 2010, so I just wanted to take a minute and sincerely thank everyone who’s been a reader this year. Not just faithful readers, but all readers.

Bubble Show Report: The Calm Before the Storm

Figuring out what network TV shows will be back next year and which shows won’t is kind of like figuring out what teams will be in the NCAA Tournament and what ones won’t.

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.
