ABC Learns to Hulu

ABC’s deal with Hulu begins today, starting with episodes of Grey’s Anatomy and continuing with new series unrolling throughout the month. And it’s about time. ABC still makes its series available through ABC.com, but I’ve always been irritated by that sites insistence on making me click to continue watching after the 30-second ads, and …

HBO's Next (I Hope) Great Drama

I didn’t end up watching a tremendous amount of TV on vacation, owing to (1) staying in a beach house without a DVD player, (2) it being the last week of June / first week of July (no Top Chef Masters?

Vacation Robo-Poll: A La Carte

Before heading on vacation, I got into a Twitter exchange with Maureen Ryan over whether we’d pick HBO or Showtime if we could take only one. (My pick: HBO if the choice were for all time, Showtime [for Nurse Jackie] if it were this summer only.)

It’s a fun, often-asked question, but it also got me thinking. We’re getting to the point …

Sarah Jessica Parker — Queen of the Artworld?

I hadn’t heard much recently about the plan Sarah Jessica Parker announced last year to co-produce a Top Chef-style artists’ competition show for cable TV. I thought the slump in the art market, and the attendant downward plummet of the Artworld Glamor Index, might mean that the whole idea had gone away. But it turns out that things …
