Stephen Root
The new George Clooney led comedy, "The Men Who Stare At Goats", opens today and it is filled to the brim with a who's who spectacular cast that will make you find yourself scratching your head and saying, 'I cannot believe they're all in this!"

We were lucky enough to speak with Stephen Ro...

The Most Underrated & Overrated TV Shows Of The 90s

May 2nd, 2008 9:43am EDT
Newsradio
The 1990s was the beginning of the end for network television. Program offerings grew rapidly in the last decade of the 20th century.

TV On DVD Recommendation: 'Newsradio'

February 15th, 2008 4:28pm EST
Newsradio
The third-best comedy of the 1990s (behind "The Simpsons" and "Seinfeld"), "Newsradio" is also one of its least-remembered and lowest-rated despite being granted a lengthy five-season run. This is mostly due to the fact that the show had its airtime or airdate changed a staggering 11 times during its run. But now that all the episodes are available on DVD, you won't have to worry about not knowing when it's on.

Set in the offices of fictional New York radio station WNYX, "Newsradio" details the wacky goings-on among the staff. The cast is filled with comedic stars led by Dave Foley ...
