Never Too Much Nancy and Tonya

If you still can’t get enough of the Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan story, NBC airs Nancy & Tonya Sunday at 7 p.m.

There’s a good article about the subject by Frank Fitzpatrick on


The Tolley Apology Tour

So when Don Tollefson begins his apology tour, which former station will get the first interview – 6 or 29?

Sunday Afternoon Viewing

Catch five episodes of The Brady Bunch every Sunday afternoon on TV Land.

Freaks and Geeks on FXX Every Sunday Morning

If you went to high school in the early 80’s, you will enjoy Freaks and Geeks, which airs Sunday mornings on FXX.

Many of the stars from the 1999 series, James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jason Segal, Linda Cardellini, Busy Phillips, Samm Levine, and John Francis Daley are still going strong today.

The Talk > The View

After watching today’s episode of The Talk, I’m not surprised it is practically tied with rival The View in the ratings.

The Talk’s current lineup of Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler, Sara Gilbert and Sheryl Underwood has more chemistry then the current View lineup of Whoopi Goldberg, Jenny McCarthy, Sherri Shepherd and Barbara Walters, who is scheduled to retire in May.

The View seems to have lost its way with the departures of Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

I wouldn’t be surprised if McCarthy gets the boot in May.

Brady Bunch Reunion on The Talk Thursday at 2 p.m. on CBS

The cast of The Brady Bunch will reunite on The Talk Thursday at 2 p.m. on CBS to celebrate the 80th birthday of Florence Henderson. You will also get your chance to meet the Bradys at The Brady Bunch Convention at The Hilton Meadowlands August 15 – 17.

Another Blow to Local Programming

I’m sad to report that the Comcast Network canceled the last remnants of CN8, It’s Your Call With Lynn Doyle, Voice of Reason with Larry Kane and Art Fennell Reports.

Philly has suffered the loss of many local shows over the years, including the entire CN8 network.


Red Hot Scott Graham

Congratulations to Philly’s Scott Graham who was the announcer for The Super Bowl pre-game festivities, the pre-game, halftime, and post-game anchor for Westwood One’s radio coverage of the game, and even the play-by-play announcer for The Puppy Bowl.

Radio the Topic of Feb. Press Club Luncheon

Howard Stern Birthday Bash

Forget the awards shows – the best celebrities from music, movies, television, and comedy were at the Howard Stern Birthday Bash Friday night. 

I have been a faithful listener of Howard’s since his show was simulcast on WYSP in 1986.
