(1) Comments | Posted January 10, 2010 | 8:33 PM

With NBC waffling over Leno and Conan and Fox's recent cancellation of Mark Burnett's latest reality show, Our Little Genius, it's too bad our little whiz kids couldn't replace the studios executives at either NBC or FOX. If the contestants from Our Little Genius can answer the questions below, maybe...

Book Review: Sarah Palin's Going Rogue

(2) Comments | Posted November 22, 2009 | 10:08 PM

In deference to reading about Sarah Palin's book Going Rogue on The Daily Kos and watching clips from her appearance on Oprah, I wrote a review, as there is so little written and said about her already.

With her new book, Going Rogue, Sarah...

TV Review: The Good Wife

(0) Comments | Posted October 29, 2009 | 4:48 PM


"He'll know how much it costs to rape someone and get away with it," Christie Barbosa (Paloma Guzman) says to her lawyers, namely Alicia Florrick, to justify how, even as a struggling stripper, she'll turn down an almost half-million dollars in an out-of-court settlement. Fewer than two percent...

TV Review: The Good Wife Goes to Better Heights

(6) Comments | Posted October 21, 2009 | 12:56 PM

The Good Wife is closer than any Oprah or Barbara Walters special will ever be to bringing this viewer to understanding why Hilda Spitzer, Elizabeth Edwards (until recently), Hilary Clinton, Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Onassis, and so on, stood by their men.

In this one hour, weekly, CBS procedural, Alicia...

A Review of The Cleveland Show: Hancock's Previous Episodes

(1) Comments | Posted October 19, 2009 | 12:25 PM

Traditionally, television comedy chronicles the woes of being a shlubby, mediocre American male, who is really a well meaning teddy bear underneath, but it is also a defense of obnoxious people. Perhaps this is a reflection of the shows creators or their understanding of the real America. Regardless of what...

TV Review: The Cleveland Show

"I'm not the one who called Child Protection Services," Cleveland yells at his wife Roberta, until he (unsurprisingly) realizes, after much back and forth, that he did indeed make the call. This third episode isn't as bitingly funny as the first or as well told as the second. Instead, it's riddled...

TV Review: The Cleveland Show

The Cleveland Show is simultaneously inventive and familiar in how it chronicles the adventures of a loving and garden-variety dysfunctional American family. The second episode lets us get to know the interpersonal dynamics and challenges Cleveland faces as he seeks to ingratiate himself and command respect in his newly blended...

TV Review: The Cleveland Show

"Can you come wipe me?" Cleveland Jr., a teenage schlub who is sitting on the toilet, asks his pop, who is next to him taking a bath. Cleveland Jr. isn't developmentally delayed, more of a man-child in the making: like father, like son. A similar parallel can be drawn about...

Letterman Should Call Himself Letterperson from Now On

(8) Comments | Posted June 16, 2009 | 11:30 AM

Dear Sarah,

OMG! Even his last name sounds sexist- LetterMAN. Really? No apology is complete without change! He should call himself David Letterperson! Then he'll entice more viewers, like lady flight attendants, teens- aged 14 or 18, specifically, anyone old enough to buy a Caribou Barbie.

You saved...

Dear Grandma,

I'm sorry you can't visit us in D.C. for inauguration, but mom rented out our home to this dude Craig Z. List. We're not the only house that's full, President Bush said there wasn't room for the Obama's. (Remember when...
