Bob Odenkirk of Better Call Saul Once Wrote A Pilot For A Show About Minor League Baseball

It’s television pilot season, where network executives sift through hundreds of elevator pitches to order pilots for a handful of shows that are retreads of what’s on already, or new ideas that will probably die off before next season even starts. So while we wait to hear casting news on next season’s spin-off of The Walking Dead spinoff—I’m hearing the working title is...

Ryan Seacrest Begins World Takeover With Late Night Olympics Hosting Gig

I’ll admit that I don’t see the appeal of Ryan Seacrest as the host of anything, but then again, I’ve never watched American Idol or any of the trash programming he’s produced. Apparently, ABC, NBC, E! and Fox see the appeal because they keep giving him gigs and they buy his reality programs. And he gets another gig as he takes over the Late Night hosting duties for the 2016...

With just under a year to go until the Opening Ceremony, NBC Olympics announced today that Ryan Seacrest will...

Bear or Bull: Is Carlos Santana Primed for a Supernatural Resurgence?

Few players have been more vexing to own in fantasy baseball this season than Carlos Santana. Great things were expected from the 29-year-old switch-hitting slugger in 2015, but he's currently being out-slugged by the likes of Jose Iglesias and Dee Gordon while producing a lower batting average than Ryan Howard and fewer runs batted in than Jose Altuve. That's about as successful...

Dream on: Fox announces ‘American Idol’ will end its run next year

Those who have grown to love reality show American Idol received some disappointing news Monday. Fox announced that the long-running singing competition has been renewed for next year, but the show’s 15th season will also be its final one. This is surprising news only because American Idol has been on so long, but the concept and execution has started to sour over the years....

Better Call Saul, Episode 4

The recurring theme of AMC's already excellent Better Call Saul is the protagonist's constant struggle for relevance, credibility, and respect. The fourth hour of the series, "Hero", continues to pound home the reality of Jimmy McGill, with just a glimpse of the fantasy he wants for himself. Credibility doesn't generally emanate from words, nor is it anything but short lived from...

Kanye West Compares Grammys, Beyonce To Marshawn Lynch Not Getting Ball

It’s about darn time somebody compared Beast Mode and Sasha Fierce. Kanye West dropped a heck of a sports analogy during an appearance on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show Wednesday morning, as the rapper is still in damage-control mode three days removed from Sunday’s Grammy Awards.

The first episode was on Tuesday (May 20), but it took me until Friday to actually get through the entire show without either falling asleep...

Will Ferrell would replace Jim Nantz with Ryan Seacrest at The Masters

The Masters and springtime at Augusta is right around the corner.  Already your hearts should be aflutter at the prospects of Jim Nantz and his silky smooth baritone waxing poetically about azaleas and patrons and Amen Corner.  Yes, it’s easy to poke fun at, but it’s also legitimately one of my favorite sports events and productions of the year.

E! gives us the worst Fun Fact in the history of Fun Facts

The Golden Globes were last night and the E! Network was there with their typical debasing of the proceedings, including what may be the worst graphic I've ever seen.  "Parkinson's Disease" and "Fun Fact" aren't really supposed to go hand in hand now, are they?  In what universe could that even be remotely acceptable?  Maybe they should ask Michael J.
