  • 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......

    Excellent job by Will Smith referencing a famous sports media moment during the Academy Awards telecast, and by Awful Announcing for picking up on it. All this happened before I started on the beat, so I'm just catching up.......

    This guy, left, or that guy, below...? "The Celebrity Apprentice" is back this Sunday, and a tough-minded correspondent named Charlie has got me to thinking: Who IS more famous? The 2008 "CA" crew or the 2009 "CA" crew? We're......
  • Jon Stewart uses sports term, then hammers Cramer

     
    Jon Stewart's shockingly one-sided beat-down of Jim Cramer on "The Daily Show" Thursday night is not technically in my jurisdiction. But there was a weird, sports-related moment when Stewart used the term "boom goes the dynamite" in the middle of......
