WUNC has a...

I have no doubt that expanding the playoffs would be profitable for the league. There is a strong demand for mediocre football and mediocre basketball, as the popularity of the first round of the NBA...

Those "best bets" sound like big bummers. What sane person would want to watch a bunch of stuff about war and crime?

I can't watch Dietrich without thinking of Madeline Kahn in "Blazing Saddles". I'm not much into melodrama, but I did like Dietrich in a change-of-pace role with Jimmy Stewart in the lighthearted...

I've never cared much for cop shows, aside from "Barney Miller".
For dramas, give me lawyers, doctors, oilmen, or winemakers, but not cops, private eyes, or spies. If a show is "gritty", I don't...

Well, despite what that article said, the term "MVPD" is not synonymous with "cable company". Satellite TV and services such as Verizon FIOS and AT&T Uverse are also MVPDs.

I was surprised to learn that TCM has been added to Sling TV's lineup.
Old movies don't fit the stereotype of what "cord cutters" are supposed to favor.

The show was called "Till Death Us Do Part", and the reason that it's "Do" rather than "Does" is that the verb is in the subjunctive mood, just the way the Book of Common Prayer had it.

It's hard to have any respect for a TV review that is based on the false premise that "Full House" was well written (or even written "well enough"). That was the worst written show in the history of...

My thought is that "TV" in 2025 will look a lot like TV in 1975. Sure, "TV" will be delivered via the internet, but most ISPs will carry only five video web sites. Let's call them ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS,...
