Can't Wait to Get 'Younger'

Sex and the City fans rejoice! Creator Darren Star is coming back with a flirty new, female-oriented comedy called Younger, and it stars some of my TV favorites. With original programming like Hot in Cleveland and The Exes, TV Land is known for it’s appreciation for and accommodation of what I like to call more “savvy”…

Shark Tank Gets a Spin-Off

Woo Hoo! My favorite reality show is getting a spin-off. That’s right, I dare use the words “favorite” and “reality show” in the same sentence. Shark Tank, where successful business “tycoons” bid or don’t bid to fund businesses that clever entrepreneurs present, is a breakout hit for ABC on Friday nights (not traditionally a successful…

A&E Ditches Grown Up Viewers

As odd as this sounds, basic cabler A&E, the network that brings you such television treasures as Hoarders, Epic Ink and Storage Wars, has just canceled its second most popular show, the Wyoming country detective drama Longmire.

Fox's Utopia

I admit: I bit. The premise of a group of 15 people from all walks of life living together for a year on mostly undeveloped land does sound intriguing.

'Louder Than Words' With David Duchovny Now On DVD

From time to time I’ll be filling you in on interesting Home Entertainment releases.

Recording Artists Asked to Pay to Play at Super Bowl

Ever wonder how much they pay artists like Bruno Mars and Aerosmith to put on those spectacular Super Bowl half time shows? It’s pretty common knowledge that the recording artists don’t get paid a penny — they do it for exposure. But what The Wall Street Journal (the god of all newspapers to which I subscribe religiously) recently…

Fargo

Stop! Drop everything, and proceed directly to your television and begin binge-watching the FX series Fargo. It’s the biggest and best original series launch so far this year, and is not to be missed. If you liked the Coen Brothers’ masterpiece of the same name, you’ll love this 10-episode limited dramady series, produced by the Brothers C, which…
