Well, today is my birthday. And as a present from me to you — because really, what would a birthday really be without presents — I have decided to give you (yes, you!) a bit of a smorgasbord of a post. Instead of taking the time to aimlessly rant on one simple thing, I'm going to aimlessly rant on multiple things! Yes. I can feel your excitement.

In this, the second of a four-part blogtastic series taking a look at this year's upfronts, we spend some time with FOX, the network behind the greatest television phenomenon of the past decade, "American Idol." Still far from the top, yet not treading into territory that would make NBC blush just yet, Fox has eclipsed its status as "the network you go to when whatever is on the other three networks stink" by offering such gems as "Idol," "House," a Sunday block filled with amazingly popular animated ... read more
