    Carter Blackburn, Chris Simms and Jenny Dell are not exactly household names. But when you have two smaller market teams like Baltimore and Cleveland playing each other, don’t expect the A team in the booth. That said, I was just about to start writing a mostly positive review of their call of...

    Candidates' lack of transparency part of a trend that's bad for democracy

    A 70-year-old reality TV star running for president shared a sketchy two-page health summary with a doctor-host on a syndicated daytime show and had the gall to boast of his transparency compared to that of his opponent.

    I am late getting to this because I was away yesterday, but I have to at least note Ohio University being so ashamed of its connection to former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes that it is taking a $500,000 hit so it can remove the alumnus' name from a newsroom at the campus. Half a million dollars is...

    'Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X' premiere recap: Get ready for some vast generalizations

    We’re back for another season of "Survivor," and it’s a new schtick — Gen X against the millennials. Get ready for a whole lot of gross generalizations, people.

    "This Is Us" is a new dramedy from Dan Fogelman, the writer of "Crazy, Stupid, Love," or, as I know him, the creator of "Galavant," a criminally under-watched comedy that was unceremoniously axed by NBC after two seasons of midseason glory (Seriously people, fire up the Hulu machine and watch it...
