Go Camping This Weekend

Check out Lena Dunham’s new series, Camping on HBO Sunday at 10 p.m. It isn’t getting the same love that Girls did, but it is funny. Dunham does not appear on screen, but she and now former producing partner Jenni Konner are the brains behind it.

Jennifer Garner stars, with a huge assist from Juliette Lewis. Lewis, who is basically playing the same character on The Conners is having a moment!

Former Eagle Featured on Real Sports

Former Eagle Jon Dorenbos is featured on this month’s edition of Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel on HBO. The piece updates us on the progress of the former Eagles’ long snapper, who after he was traded to the New Orleans Saints learned he had a heart condition that forced him to retire on the spot at the age of 37.

 

The Classic TV Stars Cruise

Barry Williams, Greg Evigan, Jerry Mathers, Jimmie “JJ” Walker, Judy Norton, John Schneider, Butch Patrick, Kathy Garver and others will headline the Classic TV Stars Cruise November 8-14 of 2019.

The Battle of Thursday

The Eagles-Giants game Thursday on Fox night adds to an already busy night of TV for me as I already watch Jersey Shore, Will and Grace, Murphy Brown, and How to Get Away with Murder.

Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, and Erin Andrews, who are doing two games a week now for Fox will handle the game.

Besides football on Sunday and Thursday for Andrews, she also co-hosts Dancing with the Stars on Monday on ABC.

 

Kathy Griffin in Philly

Kathy Griffin performed for a Bruce Springsteen-esque three hours Saturday night at the Merriam Theatre in Philadelphia. The hysterical show included Griffin’s trademark celebrity stories (Stevie Nicks and Chrissie Hynde, Kim and Kanye, Martha Stewart, Cher, Joan Rivers, and more). Plus, she managed to make her ordeal with the President and U.S. government entertaining and important.

I cannot believe that Netflix, the home of a million comedy specials, doesn’t have room for her.

Maybe MSNBC could put her back on TV for New Year’s Eve? She could team up with MNSBC star Rachel Maddow. Wouldn’t it be sweet revenge if Griffin could beat Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen on CNN?

I’d watch Kathy and Maddow over them!

 

 

Sports Radio Needs to Get With the Times

So tomorrow on The Fanatic, 97.5 FM, former WIP personalities Marc Farzetta and Tra Thomas begin as the morning drive hosts and Anthony Gargano moves to the mid-day shift. Farzetta, Thomas, and Gargano are just a few of the many sports radio hosts who have moved back and forth between the stations.¬† Instead of recycling the sames hosts like Gargano, Farzetta, Thomas, Mike Missanelli, Rob Ellis, Joe DeCamara, and Jon Marks, wouldn’t it be nice to give a female a chance?

For the last 25 years, Rhea Hughes of WIP’s morning show has been the only female host with a significant role in Philadelphia.

 

The Fox A Team For Vikings – Eagles
