    In the same way that the show had an outsized influence on women’s fashion, so too did it influence their behavior. The latter didn't work out so well. “Some people are settling down, some people are settling, and some people refuse to settle for anything less than butterflies.” “The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.” — Carrie Bradshaw This month marks the twenty-year anniversary of the iconic television series “Sex and the City.” With smart writing...

  • Jimmy Fallon thanks Parkland students for schooling world

    The surprise commencement speaker at the Florida high school where a gunman killed 17 people in February was Jimmy Fallon, who said he wanted to thank the students personally for their courage and bravery. “Most commencement speakers get up and talk in future tense: `You will succeed. You will make us proud, you will change the world,’ the “Tonight Show” host said. “But I’m not going to say that, because you’re not the future. You’re the present. … You are succeeding, you are making us proud.” Fallon joked about his own less-than-stellar high school performance — it took having to...

    The new Magnum being a minority..? I sorta expected that. But then Higgins turned out a sassy, hot blonde British female. And then "Higgins" started roundhouse kicking KGB contractors in the jaw, knocking them out. And giving "Magnum" a whole lot of lip. And that's when I got very scared and angry.
  • Curtain Falls For Good on NBC's Extremely Liberal High School Drama 'Rise'

    “Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” This famous quote attributed to Dr. Seuss applies to many things in life, but NBC’s high school drama Rise is not one of them. If anything, we should cry because it happened, and smile now that it is finally over. Unlike the show’s title Rise, every episode in this debut season continued to sink to new lows, so we can also smile over the news that the curtain has been lowered for good on the series. The show takes place at Stanton High School, where theater teacher Mr. Mazzuchelli (Josh Radnor),...

    Samantha Bee’s show, Full Frontal, is apologizing today for portraying disgraced former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman as a superhero in a segment last November. The show left two videos featuring Schneiderman on its YouTube account but changed the titles and the descriptions to reflect current events. One of the videos is now titled, “Former AG Tricks Sam Into Thinking He Was Decent.” The description below it now contains this apology: **SNIP** In the video itself, Bee repeatedly portrays Schneiderman as a superhero standing up to Trump. “There is hope on the horizon, a hero who stood up to democracy’s nemesis...

    Two white cameramen who are suing NBC -- claiming the network is racist -- allege the network has a pattern of protecting itself and sweeping misconduct under the rug ... and they are pointing to the Tom Brokaw and Matt Lauer cases. Kurt Decker and Michael Cimino were cameramen on 'The Tonight Show' with Jimmy Fallon, until they got fired for receiving racist text messages from a 'Tonight Show' stagehand. They claim they were singled out by Questlove, the band leader, who protected a black NBC employee who also received the text message, but allegedly told NBC bigwigs to fire...

    Perhaps you could call it a coda to an outstanding symphony of audio/videophile tech. Oppo Digital, the company whose products have won it many awards over the years – and which deserved them – has announced it's winding down its operations. Say it isn't so, Oppo! The announcement on the company's website as of April 2, came as a big surprise to me. I've been reviewing the company's products since they first appeared on the North American scene and have yet to find one that wasn't a great addition to whichever market niche it was invading. From TV's to DAC...

    After seven seasons, ABC’s Scandal has finally aired its last episode. Over the course of 124 episodes, the Shonda Rhimes-produced series has pretty much covered every aspect of the liberal agenda. However, as the finale proves, there’s always time to squeeze in a little more, especially when it comes to knocking white male privilege and promoting gun control. I guess it’s better to go out with an insufferable bang than with an annoying whimper. The April 19 finale “Over a Cliff” has the Gladiators facing the threat of life in prison after Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) revealed the existence of...

Trump wanted to personally reach out to Barr, after the reboot of her iconic ABC sitcom drew 18.2 million viewers in its debut on Tuesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the New York Times. A source said the president was impressed by the “huge” ratings of “Roseanne,” which features Barr playing her alter-ego Roseanne Conner – a Trump supporter, like the actress is in real life.
