TV Tidbits: Super Bowl counter programming; your certain, imminent death

Billy Crystal wants to see less sex, gay or otherwise, on TV. The world would like to continue seeing no Billy Crystal sex on TV, thank you. FOX is rebooting The X-Files and Prison Break because it’s been a minute. Actually, yeah. It’s been, like, literally a minute since those shows went off the air.... Read more »

NEWS that is not Golden Globes related. And, man, if you’re not talking about the Golden Globes today, there’s not a lot to report, TV-wise. Game of Thrones book theory debunked. This is kind of awesome. A new trailer for The Walking Dead‘s second half, which starts on Sunday, February 8 AMC trailers galore! Here’s... Read more »

The Best Tweets of the Golden Globes

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Pre-emptive condolences to <a href="https://twitter.com/OfficialJLD">@OfficialJLD</a> on her Golden Globes loss this evening. Work harder, you are embarrassing us.</p>&mdash; Timothy Simons (@timothycsimons) <a href="https://twitter.com/timothycsimons/status/554393970474631168">January 11, 2015</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Like Blake Lively and artisan jam or some such, I’ve curated all the best tweets from last night’s Golden Globes. The show itself was DULL. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were barely there. They had promised a no-holds-barred romp. We got…Margaret Cho dressed up as a North Korean soldier. The jokes were lame, but, for... Read more »

TV Tidbits: Game of Thrones premiere date, Justin Bieber's package, and Golden Globes predictions

TV Tidbits: Game of Thrones premiere date, Justin Bieber's package, and Golden Globes predictions
Sorry for no TV Tidbits yesterday. It wasn’t my fault! This wasn’t me saying I’m going to do something and then dropping the ball a few days later. This wasn’t 40 Bags in Forty Days, Redux. I liked a post on Facebook that spoke favorably about net neutrality and then Comcast put me in internet... Read more »

TV Tidbits - Wednesday, January 7, 2015

TV Tidbits - Wednesday, January 7, 2015
I’m going with TV Tidbits as the title of this feature. Thank you, Kim Dale of Listing Beyond Forty for the suggestion. And here’s your news for the day: So, yeah. Game of Thrones is not *just* showing a trailer in IMAX. It’s also showing two episodes you’ve already seen. I’m fine with waiting until... Read more »

TV News - 1/6/15

I’m thinking of making this a daily feature, running down the day’s TV news, duh-doy. It will keep us all better informed about what’s happening on the tube-us boob-us. But I need to come up with a better title for this than “TV News.” Put on your thinking caps, kids! Later this month, you can... Read more »

The Walking Dead, "Coda"

The Walking Dead, "Coda"
This has been an interesting and, for the most part, satisfying first half of the fifth season of The Walking Dead. It’s still kind of bizarre to me, this whole mid-season finale thing. It’s really a finale, is it? It’s the midpoint of the season. At the midpoint of a story, the protagonist usually experiences... Read more »

The Walking Dead review: What about Bob?

The Walking Dead review: What about Bob?
Tonight was the penultimate episode of the first half of the fifth season of The Walking Dead. That’s a mouthful. Unlike Game of Thrones, where the second to last episode of the season usually means Big Things, tonight’s Zombpocalypse hour was more about table setting for the finale and mixing up the chemistry. Rick and... Read more »
