Jadyn Douglas has something delicious about her that I can't put my finger on -- but it's powerful -- and she's in for one heck of a ride!
Attention all shoppers! NBC's new comedy, Superstore, from the brain of Justin Spitzer -- whose credits include Scrubs and The Office -- is offering a "weekly deal" of laughs and heart to which you'll want to subscribe.
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.
t few years, there have been a plethora of different "cop shows" that have done well but are often criticized for being very contrived. After watching the pilot of Shades of Blue last night it is clear that it is not your average cop show.
The biggest difference a place like HBO and a broadcast network (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX) is that HBO is a pay service and the networks are ad-driven. The networks have sponsors they have to keep happy. They need eyeballs to charge the rates they charge. They need to make sure they don't offend anyone. They have to make sure that people aren't using competing products on their shows.
Last week President Obama took modest, but politically courageous, executive actions on guns. Despite the well-established popularity of strengthening background checks, the move was panned by the Republican Speaker and most Republican Presidential candidates. But there is far more to the contentious debate on guns than simply a favor/oppose question on any one policy, and more than discussions of a "gun culture" that gun law advocates supposedly don't get.
A kinder, gentler and mostly out of sight Ricky Gervais held forth at this year's Golden Globe Awards on NBC with a bunch of surprise winners along with the expectations of lots of pundits. It moved relatively swiftly, especially towards the end when it ran overtime, but as entertainment it was mostly so-so.
The Golden Globes are back, and Ricky Gervais is the host again, making it his fourth time to host. He's been known to drink throughout the show and roast A-listers in the audience. We expect no shortage of cringe-worthy moments.
Joel Allegretti is the author of five collections of poetry, most recently The Body in Equipoise (Full Court Press, 2015), a chapbook on the theme of architecture and design. His second collection, Father Silicon (The Poet's Press, 2006), was selected by The Kansas City Star as one of 100 Noteworthy Books of 2006.
The Republican campaign has deteriorated into a schoolhouse brawl. This is not a campaign of new and exciting ideas; rather, it is a misguided crusade that offers voters little hope for those tired of politics as usual.
In a surprising move this holiday season, Our Father, which normally art in heaven, descended down to earth yesterday and added His Almighty voice to the call for gun control. Dressed in a pure white suit, and looking not unlike Morgan Freeman in Bruce Almighty, God appeared on Fox News and said:
The networks have grasped Donald Trump to their collective bosom like the winner of one of those misogynistic, televised beauty pageants he owns. Each pronouncement from the Sultan of Slur is treated as epic, no matter how deeply insulting, bigoted or just plain ridiculous.
It was a genuine honor to be asked to narrate the audiobook for my dad's latest novel, The War Reporter. OK, the truth is I asked to narrate it. Maybe 'ask,' is a little kind.

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.
Coat of Many Colors, a new teleflick loosely built on Dolly Parton's 1971 song about a plucky young gal in a patchwork jacket, makes Hallmark Christmas movies look like The Walking Dead.
