June 23rd, 2014 11:15am EDT
Rising Star
"You win some, you lose some." Perhaps that’s how ABC should view their latest flawed effort joining the singing competition market, Rising Star. It's the latest attempt at finding a 'superstar' – or perhaps it’s just ABC striving to compete with other networks in the karaoke realm. After all, NBC has The Voice and Fox has American Idol. Adding fuel to the fire, ABC has fallen flat previously – Duets ended after one season.

Rising Star has good intentions – the viewers select the artists vying for a recording contract with Capitol records. The idea sounded great decent on paper… If t...

Us audience members were officially cut off Tuesday morning. No more voting for "Dancing With The Stars."

Luckily the first hour was a repeat, so I don’t have to write five million extra words for a third of the show. Then the opening sequence and voice over for the real show kicked in, and were especially dramatic. That is saying a lot when talking about this show. I a...

All I know is that when Season 6 of Sunny comes to DVD, I'll feel the same way about this ep as I do about Golden Girls overall—while it's amusing and has some really funny bits, it's not something I'll feel compelled to watch over and over.

Of course, I'm always happy to see Mac's mom, who, as the episode title suggests, is central to the plot. After Mrs. Mac falls asleep with a cigarette in her mo...
