    Enough Already! Archie 'Sugar Sugar' Andrews To Die in 'Life With Archie' July Entry

    Where is the line drawn? This is not a soap opera, nor is it a science fiction fantasy production where death means nothing. What is at hand here is a childhood full of happy memories, of silliness, competitiveness, and comraderie. We are talking the singers of the bubblegum classic, "Sugar...

    My View: Boy Am I Glad I'm Not a 'How I Met Your Mother' Watcher-Alternate DVD Ending

    I must admit that I am glad that I never got into the just-ended series, "How I Met Your Mother." The Neil Patrick Harris comedy was one I was interested in watching years ago, but never did because it was on opposite other programs I deemed more desirable and back then I did not have a DVR at...

    David Letterman Announces Retirement, Will Leave Air in 2015

    It seems like yesterday when David Letterman was appearing on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson." Then, boom, he had his own show, following Carson's yet. After the debacle NBC created by bypasssing Letterman as Carson's successor and selecting Jay Leno to take over "The Tonight Show,"...

    'Batman' Continues to Pow and Zap Its Way on MeTV

    Holy Time Gone By. Has it really been a whopping 48 years since Adam West and Burt Ward first zapped their way into our imaginations on the hit NBC series, 'Batman?' It was indeed as the caped crusaders made their debut on January 12, 1966 in an episode entitled, 'Hi Diddle Riddle.' As the...

    Christopher Meloni Excels on Fox's New Comedy, 'Surviving Jack'

    Bad news for Christopher Meloni fans and his 'Surviving Jack' series: I liked it. Frankly, this means the show's odds on surviving the season are slim. It's not that I'm a jinx to television shows or anything, but let's just say that back in 1990, I was one of the eight loyal viewers to 'Cop...

    'Celebrity Wife Swap' Preps for Return; Reruns with Tracie Gold & Others Air

    It's scary to think a show like 'Celebrity Wife Swap' can be successful, but three seasons in that is exactly what this series is. That said, I tuned into an episode this week for the very first time. I ran across it by accident on the Lifetime Channel while setting my DVR for 'Under the...

    Forget Luke-Laura-Scotty. Now It's Spencer-Emma-Cam As 'General Hospital' Love Trio!

    As a long time (as in decades) viewer of soap operas, or as they are now referred to in a more politically correct phrase, daytime dramas, I have been thoroughly amused and amazed by the latest love triangle on 'General Hospital.' Move aside Scotty-Laura-Luke, Robin-Patrick-Sabrina, and any...

    James Rebhorn Dies; Writes His Own Obituary

    I didn't recognize the name when I heard it many hours ago in the news, but when I saw his picture, I recognized James Rebhorn. I know him best from his role in From the Earth to the Moon, the Tom Hanks produced project where Rebhorn was Harrison Storms, one of the guys who took the fall for...

    Paul Guilfoyle Exits CSI But It Wasn't His Choice

    Maybe it's a salary thing but what's the point here? He's been on the show from the beginning but it's not like he's central to every episode or anything. Why fire one of the only two original cast members? I don't get this one. It really isn't that important to me as I'm not really a fan of...
