NBC’s The Mysteries of Laura provided us with yet another mystery on Wednesday night, titled “The Mystery of the Morning Jog.” But this time it wasn’t the solving of a super-intricate and deadly murder mystery. Oh no, this time Laura revealed a new and previously unknown grievance group: the men’s rights group.
Madoff was a very well done, 4-hour television event. Telling the story of, obviously, Bernie Madoff and his $50 billion dollar Ponzi scheme, it had a very “Goodfellas” feel to it, complete with good use of flashbacks and music.
So, when FS1’s Jason Whitlock spoke about the media using the racial controversy surrounding Cam Newton for “clicks and ratings,” well he just might have been on to something there.
The Muppets have given us many great moments over the years: Fozzie and Kermit taking the fork in the road, literally. Not to be outdone by Fozzie proving that a Studebaker can indeed be a bear’s natural habitat. However, Tuesday night’s edition of ABC’s The Muppets, titled “Swine Song,” left us with a moment that was most unnatural, and in a sexually suggestive habitat that I am absolutely not okay with finding my favorite childhood pig.
Because the rest of the world might not yet be completely convinced that the wussification of America has succeeded, USA Today unleashed a torrent of literary lameness by posing the question: Is watching the Super Bowl immoral?
Normally, products carry the description of “Made in (insert country),” so that you’ll know and be better able to trace the lineage and origin of that particular product.

Killing in the name of religion was the theme of Thursday night’s The Blacklist, titled ‘The Vehm.’ The young men of a religion, bent on the destruction of those it viewed to be sinners, believe they kill in the name of their God, and are willing to die in the process if need be.
It was a show about the religion of…well…Christianity of course.
It’s not too often that funny jokes at the expense of the left get made. At least outside of conservative circles. It’s even less often that it happens on network television. Yet, such a rare occurrence did in fact occur on Thursday night’s episode of NBC’s Shades of Blue, titled ‘Who Is It That Can Tell Me Who I Am?’
So, I suppose it was only a matter of time before Cam Newton took a flaming torch to the house of goodwill he built up by having one of the greatest postseasons in recent memory. But it appears as though he is in the process of doing precisely that right now.
The CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend decided to use Monday night’s episode to shed some light on that most philosophical, insightful, and riveting aspects on modern feminism: the pole dance.
Blue Bloods is the show where more is discussed in more real terms in eight minutes at the dinner table than has been discussed and accomplished on Capitol Hill in the last eight months.
Money, money, money was the theme on Wednesday night’s edition of ABC’s Blackish, titled “Keeping Up with the Johnsons.”
Florida Gators football player Jalen Tabor apologized for comparing the Southeastern Conference to a “Modern Form of Slavery.” Probably because it’s crazy.
Spike Lee has made it well-known that he will refuse to attend the Oscars next month. Less well-known is what Spike intends to do with his time when he’s not at the Oscars.
A strong indicator that the plot of your show might be a tad underwhelming is when you feel compelled to make your opening scene an orgy of sadomasochistic torture. I won’t describe it. Just watch, if you dare.
Facts may be stubborn things to people concerned about truth. But they are quite malleable things in the hands wack-a-doo leftists, hell-bent on erasing the primary achievement of one of the most conservative presidents in American history.
Most families who flee countries in turmoil to find happiness, health, and considerable wealth in a new land would consider themselves to be living something of a dream. But don’t tell that to Seahawks offensive lineman Russell Okung.
Apparently stymied by the lack of real crime taking place in New York City, NBC’s The Mysteries of Laura resorted to incorporating the fake-crime, look-at-me, I’m-feeling-something-now antics of animal rights activists in Wednesday night’s episode.
If you were sitting there wondering how a country that produced John Wayne, Charlton Heston, and Chuck Norris could, in the space of only a few generations, also produce the man-bun, the V-neck t-shirt, and Zac Efron, I think I’ve found the answer.
