Superheroine Hangover

TNT’s Witchblade is back and dumber (if not drunker) than ever.

By Bill Frost
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - X96 Radio From Hell’s Kerry Jackson has devised a tasteless-but-funny plan for watching the new season of Witchblade (TNT; premieres Sunday, June 16, 9 p.m.). Usually, I’d simply steal the idea and rewrite it as my own, but since he’s...

Geeks Gone Wild!

Boldly going where no geeks have gone before on Z24’s Sci-Fi Sunday.

By Bill Frost
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - As a rule, newspaper people should not be seen—hell, most of ’em shouldn’t even be read. Even those lame little photos next to print columns are too much (be glad City Weekly doesn’t play that), and actually going so far as to...

Power! Of Attorney!

Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law finally returns from Cartoon Network limbo.

By Bill Frost
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Given television’s summer explosion of courtroom programming (NBC’s Crime & Punishment, ABC’s State v., Court TV’s Power, Privilege & Justice, Martha Stewart on any channel), it was only natural that the cat with the beak...

Undercover Fluff

She Spies: The next big thing in action-syndication or mindless jiggle-junk? Or both?

By Bill Frost
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - As David St. Hubbins once said, it’s a fine line between clever and stupid. Take She Spies (NBC; debuts Saturday, July 20, 9 p.m.), the new action-adventure series that stretches said line thinner than the butt-string of a thong bikini on Cancun....

Loco Local

Survivor’s Neleh and Totally Awesome’s Superdell invade your mornings.

By Bill Frost
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - One important television aspect that fell to the wayside when The Only TV Column That Matters™ went national (OK, interstate) in 2001 was local coverage—what’s up with Salt Lake City news, programming, etc. Writing two separate Tube...

Reality on Crack

P. Diddy, Kato Kaelin, Liza Minnelli and Anna Nicole Smith: Just plain folks.

By Bill Frost
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - The talk of the 2002 Television Critics Association press tour held this month in Pasadena—which The Only TV Columnist That Matters™ did not attend, because I work for a living and don’t have time for a two-week vacation hanging...

Smash in the SlamZone?

TNN’s SlamBall invents a whole new action-packed sport … or something.

By Bill Frost
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Dog shows. Billiards. Logrolling. Sumo wrestling. Hot-air ballooning. Spelling bees—yes, spelling bees. All of these have aired on TV’s self-proclaimed “worldwide leaders in sports,” ESPN and ESPN2, at one time or another recently....

Anti-Oprah Superstars

The Man Show heads into its fourth and final season—what have we learned, America?

By Bill Frost
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - There’s no winning an argument over The Man Show (Comedy Central; season premiere Sunday, Aug. 11) … or losing one, or ending one. Those who regard it as misogynistic frat-trash will never come to terms with the fans who see it as over-the-top...

Mondo Mitch

Weather wacko English plays talk-show host on WB a.m. … but not for much longer.

By Bill Frost
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Mitch English didn’t know just how prophetic his words were, explaining the six-month evolution of his WB a.m. (KUWB 30; weekdays, 5:30-8 a.m.) from a cheesy, low-budget morning goof to less-cheesy, still-low-budget morning sorta-talk show with...

Repurpose- o-Rama

Cable is eating up network TV programming, and now vice versa. It could get ugly.

By Bill Frost
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Why are all these network shows you can watch for free turning up on your overpriced cable? For those who have lives and don’t spend every waking hour studying the minutia of the TV biz, it’s called “repurposing,” a sneaky practice...
