Some random thoughts for a Thursday...
Tuesday nights are not the same now that the O.J. verdict is in. Sarah Paulson has become my favorite working actress. Whether it’s a one-headed or two-headed character, she can play ‘em all.
Sorry to hear of David Gest’s passing, but is this the creepiest wedding photo you’ve ever seen?
Congrats to the Golden State Warriors, the best
regular-season team in NBA history. 73-9. Of course now they have to
play another 82 playoff games.
Conan O’Brien has been doing his shows from South Korea, obviously trying to capitalize on that MASH zeitgeist.
For the first week of the baseball season when it’s still snowing in the east, why don’t they schedule all the games in cities that have good weather or domes?
NEW GIRL was renewed. No, seriously.
You can get the book here.
So SUPERGIRL’S ratings went way up when The Flash guested then plunged right back down the following week. Look for a crossover show with Super Grover during May sweeps.
Who’s having a big viewing party for this Sunday night’s TV LAND ICON AWARDS?
The Russian poem that David Isaacs and I wrote for a CHEERS episode made it to a gate arrival sign. I guess Virgin Air in SFO likes to spice up their gate announcements. This was seen recently:
ORPHAN BLACK returns tonight and is supposed to be good again. For the first few episodes they essentially do a prequel. Navajo Code Talkers couldn’t figure out the plot from last season.
The new CEO of AMC Theaters is experimenting with allowing texting at certain theaters. That'll be the last time I ever go to one of those theaters. Meanwhile, the most habitual moviegoers are not teens. They're the over-50 crowd. Maybe theater owners should maybe possibly want to cater to THEM.
What a way to go out! Kobe Bryant scored 60 points last night in his final game in the NBA. Thanks for a great career, Kobe. It's a sad moment for Lakers fans although they're all secretly saying, "Finally!"
EW Trend Watch: Capsule Episodes. Entire episodes devoted to one character of a series. Uh, this is nothing new. Ever see the “Hawkeye” episode of MASH or the “Maude Bares Her Soul” episode of MAUDE? TV did not begin in 2010.
I’m about to go into a deep depression. Only one more episode of BETTER CALL SAUL left for the season. What will I do with my Monday nights and aluminum cape?
Any chance I could get Sumner Redstone to adopt me? Or Kobe?
