RNC Packed With Pride, Passion, Power

posted by mattaug

If it was just a show … then the Republican National Convention was one heckuva show at that. But I wouldn’t want to call it just a show, not to the likes of all the terrific governors who spoke or […]

Jerry Jones Promotes Cowboys, Pizza

posted by mattaug

Call me old-fashioned and that’s just fine but there’s something appropriate about owners acting like owners. I guess I am spoiled by how the Tisch and Mara families have handled themselves as owners of the New York Giants: with dignity […]

For Announcing Dodgers, It’s Just Vin Baby!

posted by mattaug

First off, for a disclaimer, I am NOT a big fan of everything Los Angeles. Take the traffic, overcrowding, bloated sports teams and mostly liberal politicians. Take them all … please! That said, it’s difficult not to admire and respect […]

Urban Drawl: Keith—American Idol Judge?

posted by mattaug

A FOX insider has  told Hollywood Reporter that Nicki Minaj will be tapped as a judge on the next season of American Idol. Apparently Keith Urban isn’t far behind signing up as a judge on the reality competition show, either. […]

Curses! When Is Enough … Enough?

posted by mattaug

OK, I’ll admit it … occasionally when I get angry or frustrated I use a curse word or two. I am not proud of that and I always feel disappointed and worse about it when I do. It’s not classy […]

Michael Strahan The Man For ‘Live’

posted by mattaug

At 6’5, 275 pounds and often flashing a gap-tooth grin former New York Giants star Michael Strahan is hard to miss. He’ll be even more difficult to miss soon when he takes over as Kelly Ripa’s co-host on ABC’s Live. […]

Phyllis Diller Was Doozy Of Comedienne

posted by mattaug

Phyllis Diller, who never had any trouble cracking wise about herself while making us laugh in the process, died Monday at her Brentwood home outside Los Angeles. She was 95. Diller wasn’t a classic beauty, but she was a pretty […]

Upset Over Nicki Minaj’s Cancelled Tour?

posted by mattaug

After seeing her perform on Wednesday’s Today Show I am not heartbroken over Nicki Minaj’s cancelled tour. I am sorry, but I’m not. As if it’s not bad enough that most female performers are scantily clad/too sexily dressed therse days. […]

Vice President Dick Cheney Was No Joke

posted by mattaug

He was mocked, disrespected and even accused of being the “real” president. But let me tell you something … Vice President Dick Cheney was NEVER a joke, nor did he treat his job like one. Cheney, led by his “boss” […]

Foxworthy Wears Bible Belt For Game Show

posted by mattaug

It almost makes TOO much sense, it’s strange someone hasn’t thought of it before. On August 23, Game Show Network rolls out “The American Bible Challenge,” a gameshow testing biblical knowledge, hosted by the tasteful but funny comedian Jeff Foxworthy. […]

Remote Viewing: Matt’s Quick Clicks

posted by mattaug

OK, as if I don’t make some people angry enough writing about one television topic, I am going to try to take on several in one feature. There was plenty of brouhaha over Al Roker’s comment to Matt Lauer about […]

Tim Allen Stands, Delivers Again For ABC

posted by mattaug

Tim Allen hasn’t changed much in  recent years, and for that we can ALL be thankful! The once-troubled ex-con turned comedian turned television star is still making us laugh in his latest ABC comedy, Last Man Standing. Allen flourished with […]

American Athletes Inspired At Olympics

posted by mattaug

I forgot where I first saw the  question, but it has certainly stuck with me: Does it really matter what nation wins the most medals at the Olympics? Ummm…I’ll take that one … YES! Of course I am an American […]

500 Comments For Changing Channels Blog!

posted by mattaug

Ruth, Mantle … and Aug! OK, that’s a bit much but Changing Channels did hit the big 5-0-0 this past week! As in 500 comments drawn from the nearly 300 posts I have  penned since Beliefnet gave me the opportunity […]

Sharon Osbourne Leaving AGT A Year Late

posted by mattaug

Sharon Osbourne is probably leaving America’s Got Talent a season too late, in my opinion. In her seventh season at AGT, Osbourne’s comments to contestants and her laugh/cackle have gotten a bit old and stale. That may sound offensive, but […]

Romney Wants Win ‘Any Which Way He Can’

posted by mattaug

Clint Eastwood is looking for hope and change when it comes to the 2012 presidential race. He apparently hopes Mitt Romney can change the course of a still-struggling economy that posted decent jobs growth this past month but is still […]

Good Olympics NBC, But Where’s Bruce Jenner?

posted by mattaug

The London Olympics have to be considered a success with a mostly fun, if overblown, opening night and lots of great competitions. But my trainer the other day brought up a very interesting point in which I thought I should […]
