Upfronts 2014

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

Welp. As I alluded to on Friday, we missed this year's upfronts. That's sad, right? So. So. Sad. After taking time to ramble nonsensically, offer some trailers, and provide three bullet points for NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox through the past couple years, this time around, we got ... a brand new website dedicated to local music? Bah. Still sad, I know. In any case, instead of plowing ground that's already been harvested (is that even a correct sentence?), I thought we'd condense all four of the major ... read more

All right, friends. You know what time it is. You know what this weekend beholds. You've heard all the chatter, read all the stories, watched all the prepackaged features about charity work and rough family lives. You've certainly read this fabulous column by the fabulous Josh Smith on Richard Sherman and how he's a breath of fresh air. You have a stockpile of delivery coupons from your favorite pizza spot. You've talked to your friends, purchased the nacho cheese and figured out that weird, ... read more

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

So. Do you have anything going on next week? Say, about this same time on this same day, exactly one week from now? Monday, Dec. 16, it is. Nine days before Christmas. Fifteen days before the end of 2013. Got plans? Last-minute holiday shopping? Mulling the year's best music? A trip to some warm-weather destination, fully equipped with a lack of snow and ice? Well, busy or not, you ought to take note: Aereo is coming to Baltimore. Lorraine Mirabella, you're up ... "The technology, which ... read more

Tweet, tweet Hey, you know that new function on Twitter, where the photos just automatically pop up in your feed? You know what I'm talking about, right? Some dude posts a picture of bikini-clad models in promiscuous poses and the thing just pops right up, no matter how awkward it makes you look at work. She's just right there. Boom. And there's nothing anybody can do about it. Welp, Fox and American Express are teaming up to take that whole "Wait, is this really necessary?" mantra and apply ... read more

Upfronts 2013 – FOX

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

Welp. It's been a week and a half, hasn't it? So ... the final installment of this year's upfronts posts will be, in a word, dated. But hey — better late than never, right? Plus, we here at TV Without A TV absolutely hate not finishing something we start, and we can all agree that the suits at FOX would be breathing down our necks for ignoring them this year if we opted for exclusion of The Rupert-meister's favorite network. Because yes, it is widely accepted that every important executive at FOX ... read more

If I gave you three guesses, could you pick who is both the least and most trusted cable news network?

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

Fox News named most trusted TV news source. Fox News named least trusted TV news source. Which headline do you prefer? And what if I told you it didn't matter? Public Policy Polling — to be fair, an organization that Slate recognized as a left-leaning group, it should be said — released the results of a survey today that highlights how American voters feel about the current state of television news coverage. The results, as you can see by the top two sentences of this particular blog ... read more

The Mindy Project gets The New Girl treatment, but will it help the show achieve New Girl status?

"So my On Demand here has the pilot of the Mindy Project ... and it isnt bad at all. It might be online, u should try to find it" Such was a text message I received earlier today from a friend of mine, bad punctuation and all. This brought to mind two things: 1) Oh, so Fox is doing that whole, let's release the show before the show is released thing with Mindy Kaling's show ... of course Fox is doing that whole, let's release the show before the show is released thing with Mindy Kaling's show. ... read more

And the nominees are … (Part 2)

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

Oh, Emmy. How you constantly elude hard-working actors and intelligent writers. Each year, you poke your head through the curtain to announce which shows were the ones we should have been paying attention to all year, which actors and actresses we should have been lusting after as the months passed by, and, of course, which reality show host not named Jeff Probst will be disappointed after losing for another year in a row (though not this year, but we'll get to that below). The Academy of ... read more

Upfronts 2012, Part 2 – FOX

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

Part two of our upfronts coverage takes a look at FOX. Yes, FOX. The network that introduced such classic, oh-my-God-I-can't-miss-this hits as "I Hate My Teenage Daughter" and "Terra Nova." And by "classic, oh-my-God-I-can't-miss-this hits," I mean ... Anyways, this fall will be interesting for the Big F. So much so, it actually may prove to be the most intriguing network to which we should pay attention come September. "House" is gone (and even though I've manage to stay away from complete ... read more
