Prince Adam turns into He-Man by yelling “By the power of Grayskull, I have the power!” How does He-Man turn back into Prince Adam? Does he have another phrase? Does He-Man wear off after awhile, and you become Prince Adam again? My guess is he reverts to Prince Adam immediately after coitus with Teela. Take [...]

Even a plain man with a mustache can get on TV as long as he has “Fox” on his cheek. What drives a grown man to sellout so hard just to have his face known for a brief second?
Is it really that hard to make severe weather look tolerable on a widescreen TV? I shouldn’t lose 50 percent of my screen to thunderstorms. Fox 4, consider yourself “4WARNED!”
I rarely watch local network broadcasts, and when I do, I’m reminded why I shouldn’t.
Estelle Getty, known to the world as “Ma” from The Golden Girls, is dead at 84. Rest in peace, Ma. We hardly knew ye. Which are the real Ma and Dorothy? (0:56 mp3)
Fareed Zakaria has a terribly named CNN show: “Fareed Zakaria GPS.” GPS supposedly stands for “Global Public Square,” but I can’t get past the standard meaning for “GPS.” At the very least, CNN should showcase Fareed’s penchant for maps, with a regular segment featuring lost drivers calling Fareed for directions, which he delivers turn-by-turn without [...]
The AP tries to clean up a quote. Jackson apologized last week after being caught saying on an open microphone that he wanted to castrate Obama for speaking down to blacks. The original quote, “I want to cut his nuts off” is far less offensive than the word “castrate” in this context. “I want to [...]
I knew this Barack Obama sensation seemed too easy: Dennis Haysbert likes to believe his portrayal as the first African-American U.S. president on Fox’s “24″ may have helped pave the way for Barack Obama. “If anything, my portrayal of David Palmer, I think, may have helped open the eyes of the American people,” said the [...]
Here’s a random question: Did the other networks get express written consent from CBS and the NFL before replaying Janet Jackson’s nipple?
Hulu.com is great. I’m re-watching Arrested Development from the first episode. All the episodes are up here. If you’ve never watched, you should fix that problem. It looks like a movie is in the works, too.
Sing it, sistas: An Ohio-based group of Democratic Hillary Clinton supporters say they’ll work actively against Sen. Barack Obama if he becomes the nominee, arguing that Clinton has been the subject of “intense sexism” by party leaders and the media. “We have been vigilant against expressions of racism, and we are thrilled that the society [...]
American Gladiators showed up on my DVR – new season, baby! Here’s the episode description: A single mother takes on a Chernobyl survivor; a store owner battles with a carpenter. This Chernobyl survivor better be deformed. Update: No visible deformation. It’s a 2-hour episode. Is that necessary? I have no problem completely shutting off my [...]
Tons of Royals games are in HD this year. Yesterday was the first game. Channel 1496 was scheduled to show the game, but I couldn’t find it on my guide or even type it in manually. Last night, Time Warner sent an update to my box, and the channel appeared after the hour-long reboot [...]
I saw “Moment of Truth” for the first time tonight. It’s that Fox show where they hook contestants up to a lie detector and ask embarrassing questions. It’s pretty fun to watch. There are a couple of things to note. First, does the audience need to let out a shocked “ahhhhh” every time a question [...]
The FCC needs someone to fine: The Federal Communications Commission on Friday said it plans to fine the Walt Disney Co’s ABC network $1.4 million for airing an episode of “NYPD Blue” in 2003 that showed a woman’s nude buttocks. I hear there’s some amazing video of the scene here. For some reason, the audio [...]
I was a little overwhelmed this weekend, so I wasn’t able to watch the KU-MU game until Sunday, a day late. I was talking to my friend Stephen about how great DVR is. I extolled the benefits of watching sports on DVR, so long as you don’t run into someone who spoils the result. We [...]
I know some people who would be very disappointed to see NBC omit the howling Gladiator “Wolf” from the below web ad. NBC has gone through some tough times since “Friends” left the air. Omitting the hilariously stupid Wolf from advertisements just shows you how incompetent this network has become. “Howl.”
This is simply too good to actually happen: In a major role reversal, ‘American Idol’ contestants might get a chance to critique Paula Abdul’s performance for a change. The Grammy-winning artist turned ‘American Idol’ judge is in talks to perform at the Super Bowl XLII this February, TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello reports. That sounds like [...]
I try to avoid talking about Britney Spears, but I can’t resist once Dr. Phil gets involved. Spears was overheard angrily telling a friend ”this is the final straw” — furious her parents had contacted TV counselor Dr. Phil McGraw to step in and attempt to help Britney deal with her various demons. Spears was [...]
“Has-beens unite!” American Gladiators is back. Here are some thoughts. Does Hulk Hogan know he isn’t a Gladiator? That sleeveless black shirt combined with his constant flexing worry me. Laila Ali has a frighteningly low voice. I’m not sure what I think about the Gladiator “Wolf.” I could do without his howling. Nitro has to [...]
