The Morning After: Into the Fire

 

Last night’s Rescue Me (small-ish spoilers follow) was the first I’d watched since the first mega-batch of season 5 screeners arrived from FX months ago, and I’m going to try to watch the remaining ones in something a little closer to real time to keep up with them for Tuned In. To say that an episode, or a season, of Rescue Me is …

Corporate Press Release Theater: ABC's Fall Dates

ABC sounded the gun early on (most of) its fall premiere dates, which in past years broadcasters have waited until mid-summer to set. Nearly all of them fall in the last 10 days of September. I might have thought the network would give a later debut date for Flash Forward to set it apart, since ABC seems to be working hard to build buzz …

Ratings: Will Dave Catch Conan?

Conan O’Brien’s ratings fell throughout his debut week last week. That’s not unexpected: you would figure on a big tune-in out of curiosity, including a lot of viewers who are not regular late-night viewers.

As pictures go, it wasn’t very informative, though from …

Stephen Colbert Sheds His Hair for Freedom

Didn’t we spend all last week talking about something having to do with late-night TV? Some guy got a show and another guy left it but got another one? Their names were Cono and Lennon or something like that, right? 

It’s hard to remember already, because back in the world of late-night TV, Stephen Colbert reminded us why what Comedy …

Goodbye to Gehry’s Arena

It was probably the least surprising news of last week, and not just because it had been rumored for a long time — Frank Gehry is no longer the architect for the new Nets arena planned for Brooklyn by the developer (and Nets owner) Bruce Ratner. The arena is the centerpiece of Ratner’s massive — too massive — $4.1 billion …
