Awards Season Already Got You Down? Don’t Worry, Only Two More Months of It

Shorter blog today, but that’s to make time for a full blog tomorrow on the Golden Globe nominations, where I’ll lay 3-1 that How Do You Know, Burlesque and Love and Other Drugs become the Late Season Golden Globe Darlings and nab some nominations but are completely and utterly ignored by every other awards organization, joining […]

Premiere (and Finale) Watch

With the start of the fall TV season now underway and the summer shows wrapping up, we’re in review mode. All of these are completely spoiler-heavy, so if you haven’t watched any of these shows yet and want to be surprised, don’t read these reviews. Except for the Hellcats review. Read that one, and then […]

Your Fall Viewing Guide

We’ll be in TV overload for a couple weeks here. There isn’t a good movie coming out for more than a month and with the Emmys coming Sunday (picking the winners in Friday’s blog) and a new TV season on the way, there’s gonna be plenty of TV to cover. For now, it’s the fall […]

The Weekend Awaits

First notice — we’re two weeks away from another PopRox chat. Just thought I’d throw that out there. Today’s links: This is always the most depressing box office week of the year, when studios trot out its trailer trash hoping to get some kind of return on the fact that it’s still summer, even though the movies […]

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 […]

Another Weekend, Another Bomb

Chat time! Well, soon, at least. Here’s the reminder that there will be another live PopRox chat Friday at noon, the first of a monthly series of live chats. From now on, we’ll be doing a live chat on the first Friday of every month at noon.  Bad news — I’ll be the one doing it. Good news — […]

Wait, is American Idol Leaving Too?

I can’t believe how much news I let pile up. But let’s try to blow through it, there might not be a ton of commentary for every item. One note: There is a very spoiler-heavy review of the crazy Vampire Diaries season finale at the bottom of this, so if you haven’t seen it yet […]

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. You’ve got your top tier of shows that you know are safe whether or not they win their conference tournaments. They’ve got the […]

the tv bubble

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. The CW made some early pick-ups yesterday to make sure fans knew shows like […]
