Get ready for Maureen Dowd: The TV series

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, who when she’s not chastising Hillary Clinton for not being a woman properly and calling President Obama a girl, has built a reputation over the years as perhaps the world’s laziest cultural critic.

Fin: I survived the algorithm change, reconsidering “Shoop” and Amy Pascal’s Amazon orders

Welcome to Day 1 of the Google algorithm mobile-pocalypse! Hopefully our search ranking is high enough that you’re still reading this. Yes, I know it’ll be available online or streaming or in the cloud probably forever. But I can’t bring myself to delete the Justified finale from my DVR. Same with the last Colbert. Just more »

DVD Review: Swamp People Season 5

This one is personally rather exciting for me; I haven’t had the opportunity to watch “Swamp People” in quite some time, and as far as I was concerned, it’s one of the best reasons to watch the History Channel. Our friends out at Lionsgate sent over a copy of “Swamp People Season 5″ for us more »

Sunday night TV power rankings: ‘Mad Men’ back on top

It’s as though between hosting a country awards show, the memorial service for Chris Kyle, and actual Dallas Cowboys games featuring hugs between Jerry Jones and Gov. Chris Christie, the stadium is more »

It’s 4/20, man! And how is this 4/20 different from all others? Because we’re deep into the era of marijuana being legal in some areas and, if not legal, at least somewhat acceptable in others. And that includes branding. As recently as two or three years ago, you wouldn’t have seen a major brand owned more »

You bet: Pete Rose gets TV broadcasting job

I realized a while ago that, at age 36, I’m a bit too young to have any positive feelings about Pete Rose. And that’s probably also true of just about everybody who’s younger than me. Sure, I have very early memories of Rose breaking the hits record in 1985, and I read his autobiography when more »

This Mother’s Day, Bret Michaels will rock your mom has announced a new Mother’s Day sweepstakes that’s great news for your mother- especially if she’s the sort of mom who spent lots of time on Poison’s tour bus in the late 1980s (or was a contestant on VH1’s Rock of Love, 15 years later.)
