  1. Announcers we love and/or hate

    Here's a link to the New York Post's story from a few days' back on Bob Costas being eased out by NBC. How Bob Costas is dealing with fading away from NBC spotlight I miss Costas. I'm a huge baseball fan and appreciate him most as a scholar of that game so I'm glad to read this part: OTOH, I'm so glad Matt Lauer is gone. I never could stand him; I always thought him sleazy. Turns out (sadly) that I was right. And count me among those who will always connect Olympics with Jim McKay. I hated when NBC was first awarded the games. I always felt that ABC did a better job with them. But that was a long time ago now...
  2. Figure Skating

    It's an entire album. You should hear what he does to "Smells Like Teen Spirit!" :D
  3. Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    Regarding the Farming/Farmers response: Does someone have the actual wording of the clue? It seemed to me to be awkwardly worded. Farming seemed to fit the clue, even though it was apparent that the F in FFA stands for Farmers. I was very disappointed that we didn't get to see the $200 clue in the Live Aid Set category and even more disappointed that Boomtown Rats was a TS. :( Sir Bob Geldorf was a driving force behind Live Aid.

    Tyler Anderson from the current TC season is also a Beard Nominee.
  5. C.J. Cregg: Delightful and Delicious

    I hope this links properly. The Hollywood Reporter has done a pre-Oscar interview with Allison Janney. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10155120975042750&id=14425952749
  6. S02.E07: The King Over the Water

    Not to mention that had the PM been notified, Drummond and Lord Alfred wouldn't have been able to have the dual-meaning "What happens in Scotland, stays in Scotland" conversation.
  7. Jeopardy! Season 34 (2017-2018)

    I am and I'm upset about it. Jeopardy! airs at 7:30 p.m. on the NBC affiliate in our market. On Wednesday evening during the regular broadcast, they ran a crawl that the show would be pre-empted by a local pre-Olympics' broadcast but that Jeopardy! would air weekdays at 1:00 p.m. on the local CW station. I have DirecTV. On the guide, it lists Judge Judy on the CW at that time. On Thursday, I was able to tune in just for a moment and yes, Jeopardy! was being broadcast even though it was listed as Judge Judy, so I set my DVR to record the CW at 1:00 today. Sat down to watch the recording this evening and got Judge Judy! Evidently there's no way I can see Jeopardy! these next two weeks. I am NOT happy.
  8. The Chefs/Cheftestants of Top Chef

    She's not the first Top Chef alumnus to do this. I'm quoting myself here from a few years ago in this thread:
  9. S02.E15: The Car

    Hannah Zeile was fantastic in the car scene with Jack. She has perfected Chrissy Metz's speech patterns and inflections. I've been wondering if Jack might have been exposed to something in Vietnam that made a "widowmaker" heart attack more possible. I didn't realize it when we first met her last season, but Dr. K's second wife is played by Susan Blakely. That's a blast from the past.
  10. Unpopular Opinions Thread

    10:45 pm and it's just starting. The bulk of the episode won't even be on in prime time. What a stupid move.
  11. Unpopular Opinions Thread

    If this has been discussed earlier in the thread, I apologize. Why the heck are they running this episode in the most envied TV time slot of the year? This is where they usually launch a pilot episode for some show that they have very high hopes for. This is Us certainly doesn't need a ratings push. I think regular viewers of the show would much prefer to have it run in its normal time slot anyway. I know I would. Seems ridiculous to me. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  12. Big Little Lies in the Media

    Has anyone read anything about whether or not Iain Armitage will be returning to play Ziggy? I've done a Google News search but found nothing. The young actor has a big conflict with being the lead character in Young Sheldon. I would imagine that one of the storylines for BLL S2 will deal with Ziggy being half-brother to Celeste's twins. I'd hate for them to have to re-cast the part as Iain was so good in the role.
  13. What, no love for The Clash with "Police On My Back" in what was probably the funniest scene in the episode?
  14. Terrific episode. This was the funniest half hour of television I have seen in a very long time!
  15. S02.E09: Paterfamilias

    Someone please tell me that I'm not the only American, with little to no knowledge of the British education system, who immediately read this and thought, "Ah, O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s!" I appreciate the information given here.
