That headline, of course, quotes the cover to the fictional Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy: "Don't Panic." This week, it seems like timely advice, as the news media and American politicians go into full-blown panic mode over one death and two illnesses within the United States.
If we invest time and energy into laughing at what is happening to Rob Ford, we are sending a powerful message that alcoholism and drug addiction are not serious afflictions that are destroying families everywhere.
As the dragon racers fly by, the audience is introduced to additions like an all-you-can eat feeding station, an aqueduct for putting out fires quickly, and a dragon armory perfect for tooth replacement or making dragon helmets.
Can an alternative New Zealand band match the mainstream success of an outfit that escaped Utah and avoided Las Vegas lounge act hell by continuing to beat its own drums until it finally got your attention?
Life is getting more and not less complicated and for one good reason: there are way too many choices in our everyday entertainment lives.
CBS is prime-time's most watched network. And some of its programming is very middle of the road. Of course, it's also home to the more alternative sensibilities of David Letterman and Craig Ferguson but my point is: It's not LOGO.
Some groups are just so irresistible, you can't help but root for them like they're one of your own. He's My Brother She's My Sister is one of those g...
What does out of touch mean, exactly? Perhaps, considering Tarantino is about to turn 50 and is deathly afraid of losing his grip, that after one "descends" into his/her 60s one has no idea what is going on or, worse, has no idea how to do the research to find out. This is preposterous.
I would support making it illegal to complain about politics -- any politics, from any viewpoint or party, including criticizing any politician -- unless you can prove you voted in the last election.
I got caught reading Craig Ferguson's memoir, American on Purpose, today. What I said to the educated professional thumbing through my diversion was, "You should've caught me Monday. I was reading about Shakespeare, which is much more impressive." The first part of that's true.
While many conservatives whine "I want my country back," they forget that America's strength has always been built on the backs of immigrants (like their very own ancestors). People from every corner of the globe have looked to America as "the land of opportunity."
We'll have to wait until next week to see if and how the late night shows tackle the tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado (except for Craig Ferguson, w...
Amazing. A feminist cartoon and a joy to behold. The visual mixed media almost makes this 3D viewing come right off the screen into your lap and your heart.
Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert were on vacation, but Conan O'Brien in particular picked up the slack, not only having a great week on his own show, but also popping up in New York on Letterman to lay into Jay Leno in a way he hasn't done since everything went down more than two years ago.
This is fairly standard material here, though Ferguson is such a genial figure, he wins you over. Eddie Izzard he isn't, when it comes to stand-up, but hardcore fans like me will want to see it.
Have you ever had that moment in your car when you stopped bobbing your head long enough to realize that you've been getting really into the "Knight Rider" theme song for the last 45 seconds?
