Comment on: Stephen Colbert a wise choice to succeed David Letterman - Arts - The Boston Globe
Posted 04/11/2014 08:10:38 EDT
I'm afraid so. He's leaving Comedy Central to go to CBS.
Posted 04/10/2014 08:52:46 EDT
True, although CBS does care about advertisers who might not buy commercial time because they don't want to offend their customers....

I agree MeanWillie -- definitely well written and clever.

They did overdo Barney at points, but NPH usually managed to make it work.
Comment on: On TV, thereâs an art to a graceful exit - Television - The Boston Globe
Posted 03/31/2014 02:35:47 EDT
Exactly! That show should have been 20 eps in all.
Posted 03/31/2014 08:11:46 EDT
Thank you for comparing me to Ed -- he was tops. Yeah, I hear you on The Comeback, but still, nah -- think about Arrested Development and what happened there. The idea of bringing it back was so much more »

Comment on: Truth is, big moments in âBreaking Bostonâ feel staged - Television - The Boston Globe

The "reviewer" has been writing about reality fakeness for 15 years now, eastbrewster. "He" made the wrestling comparison long, long, long ago.

I know, I know. This one would have been so much better as a true documentary.

Posted 01/28/2014 07:25:18 EST
Harry, great story. I couldn't fit in the story about an episode on a Bravo series where a couple hired a team of namers to NAME THEIR UNBORN CHILD.

I hear you, HarryRPitts, on Shameless, and I remember that (funny) plot. (I also remember Debbie having to do child labor in the home where she was placed, which was also kind of Dickensian.) But I th more »

Hey Fragon64, I do mention Here's the Thing in the piece. I agree, it's him at his best, when he's working without a script. MG Baldwin has proven himself to be an effective interviewer on his podca more »

Posted 07/14/2013 04:01:55 EDT
Hey tks1227... There's something called the "hanging episode" rule, which means that if six episodes air in the eligibility period, then others that air afterward can be nominated.... MG

Yes, she is funny. Agreed. The rest of the show? Meeehhhhh.
Comment on: Plenty of characters, little story in âSouthie Rulesâ - A&E - Boston.com

I understand the premise of a lot of reality TV, and I think it's boring.

Thanks, Burningtime. I generally try to be cautious about spoilers, and I thought everything in the review was pretty evident in the show early on. Would you mind emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org to t more »
