    The long-awaited 2016 election day is finally here, and it could be a historic one for a number of different reasons. The United States could elect its first female president Hillary Clinton; Republicans could take back the White House with Donald Trump after two terms of Democratic control; there could be record voter turnout and the leading campaign election night parties will both be in New York.

  • Bah Humbug! Why Are Most Christmas TV Specials So Bad?

    12/07/2016 6:59:08 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 51 replies
    You know it from the first few notes of Thurl Ravenscroft's barrel-chested performance — singing "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" with the same flair he brought to playing Tony the Tiger in Kellogg's cereal commercials — Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a holiday classic. The animated film turns 50 this year, airing on NBC about three weeks before its actual birthday. And it is, admittedly, a little weird to call a 26-minute cartoon about a green guy who learns not to steal Christmas presents an enduring masterpiece. But The Grinch, which CBS debuted on Dec. 18,...

    France has banned the faces of smiling children from television. Why? Picture the face of a smiling child. What thoughts come to mind? Innocence? Joy? Love? What could be more beautiful? The image of a smiling child should give us hope, should stir us — should be a reminder that we're all made in the image of God. Even, and perhaps especially, the smile of a child with Down syndrome. A couple of years ago, to mark World Down Syndrome Day, the Italian advocacy organization CoorDown released a touching video featuring children with Down syndrome. It's titled "Dear Future Mom."...

In 1981, Tinker left to become chairman and CEO of  then-last-place network NBC.

It is a totally one-sided, biased show - nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?” Trump tweeted on Sunday morning. Baldwin responded by telling Trump the election is over and there is no more equal time.

Of course the Clintons have done far worse things than Trump has, and that is the case that Trump must make to the American people in...

My friend says the network because it is their system which is airing it and is ultimately responsible for what is aired. I thought all the content was the property of the NFL and couldn't be used, aired, transmitted, or retransmitted without their permission? Who is responsible?

CNN Money, in its reporting of the announcement, connected it to a broader shakeup at HLN, including the end of Nancy Grace’s flamboyant show devoted to criminal court cases. But the decision came eight days after Pinsky’s comments on a radio show on Aug. 17 questioning the health and medical care of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president. After looking at bits and pieces of Clinton’s health-care records she made public in 2015, he said he was “gravely...

He was 92. “Love Story,” based on the bestseller by Erich Segal, was an enormous box office hit in 1970 and was nominated for seven Oscars, including best picture. Though many critics dismissed the movie as too sentimental, it is No. 9 on the AFI’s list of the most romantic films of all time. Hiller served as president of the Directors Guild of America from 1989-93...

    Season 1 of The Jim Gaffigan Show opened with some surprisingly insightful commentary on faith and the way it’s portrayed in the media.The comedian, known for family-friendly bits about fast food (peppered with a self-criticizing falsetto), is as different from a Louis CK in terms of content as possible. Yet the tone of his autobiographical show was more Louie than sitcom, tinged with a wry realism with flashes of full-on satire. Season 2 has doubled down on this formula, with the first two episodes again tackling faith and social media respectively.“The Calling” opens on a nervous Gaffigan repeatedly bumping into...
