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. […]

Dick Clark Rocked Until End…

posted by mattaug

I’ll admit it, I changed my tune on Dick Clark’s  Rockin’ New Year’s Eve party. Well, at least the program’s namesake, as co-host Ryan Seacrest and music acts like Lady GaGa are not my thing. I had been a little […]

Goodbye Andrew Breitbart, Davy Jones

posted by mattaug

This has been a tough week, as we lost almost polar opposites Andrew Breitbart and Davy Jones. Breitbart, the conservative pundit, had to be respected for the tenacious approach to his work. He wasn’t loved in all  quarters, no conservative […]

GRAMMYs High Points Outweighed Lows

posted by mattaug

It’s nice to be able to write that the high points of Sunday’s GRAMMYs on CBS outpaced the lows. By a pretty good distance, too. Sure, there was Nicki Minaj acting and dressing the fool … trying to mock Catholicism […]

M.I.A. Should Have Been M.I.A. At Big Game

posted by mattaug

As if we don’t have enough people flipping the bird at the U.S. and who “don’t give a crap”, pardon the language, rapper M.I.A. got into the action. In case you haven’t heard, though you probably have … which is […]

Watching Jackie Evancho Sing … Turns Me Into A Blubbering Fool

posted by mattaug

I knew, just KNEW it would happen but I left the TV on anyway. Jackie Evancho, the great young singer — the America’s Got Talent runner up (how on earth didn’t she win?) turned me into a blubbering fool Wednesday […]

Fallon, Nevada … Named After Jimmy?

posted by mattaug

If Fallon, Nevada ISN’T named after Jimmy Fallon, NBC‘s late night talk show host …. well it SHOULD be! His dead-ringer impression, pardon the expression, of Jim Morrison the former front-man of The Doors is amazing. And his stint as […]

Uptight, Upset About What’s On TV

posted by mattaug

An old family friend wrote in the other day “man, you are tight, lol”. He was referring to my recent feature on ESPN analyst Bobby Valentine in which I knocked the former Mets manager for using the expression “baseball gods”, […]

J.R. Martinez: Dancing With The Stars Hero

posted by mattaug

The judges are kind of obnoxious at times and you need to appreciate dance to fully enjoy it, but Dancing With The Stars definitely has one hero to root for this season: Iraqi war veteran J.R. Martinez, who suffered burns […]

Are You Ready …. To Be Censored?

posted by mattaug

Let me make one thing perfectly clear … as President Nixon used to say: I was no big fan of Hank Williams over-the-top musical intro to Monday Night Football … it was obnoxious and over the top to me. To […]

Miley Cyrus or Miley Siren?

posted by mattaug

Talk about having her cake and eating it too. Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus seems ashamed of the squeaky-clean image she spawned and cashed in on as star of that show. It’s a shame, and it’s a part of the […]

America Ingenuity: Sonic Ad “Tribute” To Peek

posted by mattaug

No one does more corny puns than me. One group of people does, however: the advertising firms for American products. Sonic, a hamburger chain throughout the U.S. and a half-hour worthwhile drive for me, recently did a take-off on America’s […]

Morning Shows Don’t Stop Believin’ In Journey

posted by mattaug

How can one group appear on two morning shows at once? Perhaps they are called “Journey” for a reason, as the rock group performed its classic Don’t Stop Believin’ on NBC’s Today Show Friday morning, then the song was performed […]

Lea Michele of ‘Glee’ ? … I Hardly Knew Yee

posted by mattaug

Lea Michele, along with Glee classmates Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith will “graduate” at the end of the coming season. “We always knew we’d graduate in real time. It’s all part of the plan and it’s all good!” Michele tweeted, […]

David Letterman Treated Justin Bieber Poorly

posted by mattaug

After all he has been through, and put himself and his family through, David Letterman should be as kind and gracious as possible … as often as possible. But you can’t teach old CBS Late Show hosts new tricks I […]

This TV Critic Hopes Twitter Is Here To Stay!
A recent newspaper article that indicated Twitter is some kind of fad that could come and go in the next few years seems kind of sad to me. The great equalizer in our society isn't economic or legal or anythin

Missing Sammy Davis Jr., Twinkies
I just noticed that the late, great Sammy Davis Jr's birthday, Dec. 8, came and went over the weekend. I miss the talented man, who broke down racial barriers through high great singing, dancing and even acting skills. Yes, even the latter, as judged by his appearance on the TV classic "All in

On Thin Ice: Are NHL Owners Bargaining In Good Faith With Players?
I'm a strange 'cat', I'll admit it. Just ab0ut completely broke all the time, yet I am as conservative as the day is long. And I always will be. In a similar way, I have always been among the working middle class, or poor, lol, but tend to see things in the owner's point of view in many res
