Ozzie seemed awfully bland to me. In comparison to Ozzie, Ward Cleaver was a real hep cat! My favorite B&W TV Dad, though, was Dobie Gillis's father.

If there isn't real knowledge of and interest in the sport, then the ratings will not hold up over time. The Super Bowl benefits from viewership by casual fans, but the NFL would not be able to pull...

But how does soccer fare in the ratings when it's just an ordinary game, not the World Cup? I still wonder how many of the viewers really like soccer and how many just get in the soccer spirit when...

Sadly, not enough kids play baseball today. And most don't even know how to tie down their own pumpkins.

Loved Eddie Haskell. Wally and The Beav were dumber than a block of concrete. June must have wondered what was wrong with Ward that he could sire two dimwits.

Nope, MWC doesn't qualify for the wholesomeness stamp of approval that "All-American" should ideally imply. MWC was conceived as a parody of "Father Knows Best". And it aired on a fledgling network...

Despicable? That word should certainly be spoken in your best Daffy Duck voice. Come now, don't be coy. We're all just on pins and needles to know who the top two are!

But what about mobile broadband service, internet connections based on signals from cell phone towers? Couldn't AT&T be a strong player in that regard? After the merger, you might wind up with a...

If the show wanted to have an irrelevant and unnecessary historical reference, why have it be a rebel reference? They could have called the car the "General Grant" and painted a bottle of whiskey on...

I'm not impressed by NetFlix. Their web site won't even let people just browse without giving contact info. So you don't really even know what shows they have in their library.

And if the laws...

I don't know much about Joe Buck, but his father, Jack, sure was a great baseball announcer.

Oh, and that new TV Land logo is kind of dull. It's no match for the Antenna TV logo.

I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who thought FOX's cameras were having trouble keeping track of the little white ball. This gives me reassurance that I'm not just a hypercritical grump.
