Barbara Walters: My Night of Regret With Ricky Martin!

(1) Comments | Posted March 9, 2010 | 4:00 PM

Nearly 30 years of Oscar-night grillings and guess which question Barbara Walters most regrets? And, no, it's got nothing to do with trees.

Walters feels just awful about asking Ricky Martin, you know, that.

"In 2000, I pushed Ricky Martin very hard to admit if he was gay or not,"...

Seinfeld's Marriage Ref: Nada Nada Nada

(58) Comments | Posted March 1, 2010 | 8:19 AM

As if the bobbing beaver balloons of the Olympics closing ceremony weren't bad enough, Jerry Seinfeld's wretched reality/game show hybrid The Marriage Ref might actually have left viewers pitying NBC. The network survived primetime Leno for this?

The premise: Three celebrity panelists -- in this case, Seinfeld himself, plus that...

The Lost Delusion

(17) Comments | Posted February 19, 2010 | 9:51 PM

Watching Lost has always been an act of faith. The polar bears, the time travel, Evangeline Lilly playing tough - the show is one long benefit of the doubt. But something's different this season, some conversion where faith has become Faith.

I think Lost has seen the light.

From the...

Weekend Update: Betty White Fans Demand SNL Spot

The Betty White/Saturday Night Live net-roots tsunami (savor those words for a moment) shows no signs of cresting, with nearly 300,000 fans joining the Facebook campaign called "Betty White to Host SNL (please?)!."

Typical comments: "They let January Jones host and she has the personality of a doorknob...

Undercover B.S.

(23) Comments | Posted February 8, 2010 | 8:55 PM

I watched CBS's new Undercover Boss, and I have a question.

What time is the revolution?

Unveiling the series in the post-Super Bowl slot, CBS clearly has high hopes for UnBoss, a reality show for the New Depression. Rich man helps poor man. Beneath...

Taylor Swift, Bleat Your Heart Out!

(121) Comments | Posted February 6, 2010 | 12:57 PM

Well, that was fast.

Taylor Swift rose to the heights and fell to the bottom all in one night. John Edwards, eat your heart out.

This week should have been glorious for the wispy-voiced pop star and voice of a wispy generation. She won four Grammy Awards last Sunday, including...

The Good Wife Myth

(14) Comments | Posted February 2, 2010 | 1:23 AM

Tonight on CBS' The Good Wife, a suspected killer turns his filleting skills on Alicia Florrick, the betrayed political spouse who gives the show its title. The weapon? An allegation.

"There are rumors," he sneers, "that you knew of your husband's...appetites."

And there it is, the cherry bomb sure to...

Improve TV the Heidecker Way!

(2) Comments | Posted January 26, 2010 | 9:07 AM

Tim Heidecker is onto something.

The comedian--if you don't know Tim & Eric, ask someone in skinny jeans--tweeted a challenge to his fans: "Someone," Heidecker posted, "please remove the laugh track from a chunk of The Big Bang Theory and send link to me."

Heidecker had a neutered...

TV: More Mea Culpas than a Confessional

(2) Comments | Posted January 15, 2010 | 10:45 AM

A new TV spot compares Dominos pizza to cardboard and ketchup (this is news?), a claim I found startling only when I realized the advertiser was Domino's Pizza. They want me to know they're sorry about their crummy pies and promise to do better.

I spot a...
