  • Sid Rosenberg to cover Grammys for Don Imus' show

     
    Is Sid Rosenberg becoming a semi-regular on Don Imus' WABC show? Maybe. Fresh off a well-received gig reporting for Imus from the Super Bowl, Rosenberg will be doing so from Sunday night's Grammys, and possibly also from the Oscars later......
  • Peter Puck was a towering media figure in the 1970s

     
    Excellent job out of Fang's Bites rounding up these old Peter Puck episodes from the 1970s. I quite enjoy Sundays in late February and early March. No NFL, no March Madness, no baseball. Nothing but cold drizzle and the numbing......
  • (Mankind) Foley endorses Mickey Rourke's 'Wrestler'

  • Slumdog Millionaire: Barack Obama 'era'

     
    by Mark Silva Lost, perhaps, in the hoopla surrounding the expectations for Slumdog Millionaire, the story of the Mumbai Idol poised for a romp at the Academy Awards, is the notion that this is "the first emblematic film of the......

    Why not? I mean, why the hell not? Everyone else does it - this live blog thing. (Here's my tree-falls-in-the-forest question: If someone is writing a live blog during the Oscars, does that mean that someone is actually paying......
  • The Oscars: Low-Rated But No Ceegar

     
    OK, so maybe I'm wrong. Maybe last night's unwatchable telecast WASN'T the lowest-rated ever, as I confidently predicted. [Note to reader: Always beware when I "confidentially predict" something.] But at least I'm not terribly far off. I could go......
  • The Oscars: Grades

     
    Time to hand 'em out...And here goes: Host: B + (The only element of the night that worked - and yet he's on-stage barely at all; plus the yawning set conspired to reduce him to ant-size insignificance when he......
  • Audi Q5 Commercials Win Over Oscars

     
    There I was, trying to make it through the Oscars, and low and behold a clever Audi commercial won me over. It was for the new Q5 SUV, which just went on sale. In the commercial, a bunch of kids......
  • 'The Amazing Race': more laughs *and* more tears

     
    Finally got caught up on The Amazing Race last night after working until 1:30 a.m. the night before for the Oscars. Whew!I didn't think anything would come close to last week's hilarity of rolling 50-pound wheels of cheese, but the......
  • Women prefer Super Bowl to 'Super Bowl for Women'

     
    Yes, I did my duty as an American and watched the Academy Awards Sunday night. But let's put the event in perspective: When the numbers come in from Nielsen, they will show that the Oscars attracted well under half as......
