This term has multiple meanings:
1) Jerry Springer, Maury Povich, the WWE, the NBA and anyone else who does something just to bump up the number of television viewers.

The ESPY’s

Are you watching the ESPYs? I, as a dedicated sports fan am NOT. As a matter of fact, ESPN is a big portion of what’s wrong with sports. Their phony awards mean nothing. Sorry, you can’t even make me think … Continue reading

Late Night Television is Overrated

I’ve heard all this great talk about David Letterman’s show going off the air after 33 years or so. Frankly, I didn’t notice. I didn’t notice when Jay Leno left either. Late night television, with the show host having all … Continue reading
