Cancellation of Harry's Law

There is no more talented and though provoking writer than David Kelly. The Kardashians are renewed but Harry’s Law is cancelled? And NBC wonders why it is always in last place in the ratings! Hire me instead and you will see changes.

One Tree Hill wasn’t

One Tree Hill wasn’t canceled…it was only given half a season for season nine. Wish my favorite show was still on.

I’m very happy to see that

I’m very happy to see that FOX is going to renew “Bob’s Burgers” contract for another year. I was scared that they would not for the first four or five shows, because their ratings had dropped a bit. I love to watch Animation Domination on Sunday nights, and since I got Dish’s Hopper I have not missed an episode yet! The Hopper PrimeTime Anytime feature prevents me from missing out on any of my four major networks prime time programming! The Hopper can automatically record my CBS, ABC, NBC and FOX HD prime time shows everyday. One of my Dish co-workers told me that Dish just released an Auto Hop feature on the Hopper, which gives customers the option to skip their PrimeTime Anytime commercials when you watch them the next day! I tried this out on Monday, and sure enough I could skip right through the commercials no problem.

  • Trade Federation, Otherworld Theatre

    CHICAGO – Theatrical satires of the Star Wars Universe are like the number of TV series the universe has wrought … too many to figure out if anything is worthwhile. But “Trade Federation” (subtitled “Or Let’s Explore Globalization Through the Star Wars Prequels”), presented by Otherworld Theatre in Wrigleyville Chicago, gets it right on.
