The Olympics are boring

As is B.O.R.I.N.G. Tedious. Vapid. Insipid. If you love athletics, the competition and joy of winning, you’ll have to set your recording so that you can skip the endless and cliche-packed commentary, interviews, commercials and hype to see your favorite sport. If NBC’s broadcast is anything like previous years, it will be an even greater orgy... Read more »

Why the GOP suspended presidential debates on NBC

Here’s the complete explanation from  Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus for why the GOP suspended presidential debates on NBC. Sounds to me that he has good reasons after the unprofessional and daffy questions that the CNBC panel put to the Republican presidential candidates during this week’s debate. For example: CNBC billed the debate as one... Read more »

NBC News must fire anchor Brian Williams for 'misremembering'

Great Scott! Dunder Mifflin Morphs Into Real-Life Brand of Copy Paper

That’s the clever headline on a Wall Street Journal story about how paper products sold by the fictional Dunder Mifflin paper company in the popular TV sitcom “The Office” now will actually be sold in Staples’ Quill.com. Might it start a trend? A Peter Florrick from the “Good Wife” to run for Cook County state’s attorney?... Read more »

Boo hoo, Conan

In better times Truth is, Conan O’Brien just isn’t good enough. Honestly, I tried to stomach his sophomoric humor when he took over the Tonight Show, but gave it up as hopeless. O’Brien’s supporters seek to portray him as hip and sophisticated, and that the folks who prefer Leno as uncool. I spotted this illustrative... Read more »
