CHICAGO – One potential theater-goer loves the “The Book of Mormon.” The other would rather stay home and watch old Ethel Merman YouTube videos.

CHICAGO – It was a brutal Friday the 13th for a lot of people who work for programs on ABC as six shows have officially been given the axe in the lead-up to next week’s official Fall schedule announcement. On the other side of the coin, “Happy Endings” was saved (as we predicted and hoped).
