And so it is that the passing of The Good Wife is a loss for CBS in particular and broadcast television in general, and very likely the end of an era. I have to say the end came fast and furious.
The Super Bowl just ended -- the Broncos upset the favored Panthers, in what was for some an exciting game (for me, anyways). I ate way too much -- way, way too much, had a great time with my friends, and joined over 100 million people around the world.
With all the above positives, why might I have an unfavorable impression of most Super Bowl ads? It's quite simple. Most of them don't sell. They cost a lot and produce questionable returns to those that pay for them.

You wouldn't know that Sanders is making history if you turned on the television. Despite the Senator's latest accomplishments, he still struggles to garner any meaningful attention from the mainstream media.
With the holiday season fully upon us, there's bound to be stress, mess, and excess to deal with. A new video is making the rounds for Febreze's new h...
Hee Haw was a concept that nobody (including myself) thought would ever succeed. Some feared the proposed television program would set the burgeoning country music industry back 25 years.
Jadyn cracked me up with her witty and fun answers to my serious questions. Next time, I'll ask her fluff questions and see if she answers them seriously!
As with all American traditions, if it happened once or twice it is one. Therefore I present my traditional Thanksgiving piece. The History of Than...
With the holidays approaching, it seems a perfect time for Supergirl to perform some task so spectacular that it meets my "thank God you're here," criteria. How about this?
