SPOILER ALERT: This review contains details of the The Conners debut tonight. “Pierce Brosnan is a much better singer than he gets credit for,” proclaims Michael Fishman’s DJ Conner while listening to the Mamma Mia soundtrack in one of the closest to genuinely funny lines of the Roseanne spinoff set to premiere on October 16 on ABC. Rising out of the racist tweets from Roseanne Barr herself and the subsequent crash, burn and cancellation of the President Trump praised blockbuster sitcom revival by the Disney-owned network, the much anticipated The Conners is fundamentally just another multi-cam, if you know what I mean? From the two episodes that I’ve seen, the adequate offering with solid core performances from Fishman, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, and Lecy Goranson is packed with jokes and one-liners you can see coming long before they land and full of scenarios you’ve seen a million times before on the small screen.

TMZ Sports Plaxico Burress just can't win in 2012 -- not only did his heavily-hyped New Yorks Jets fail to make the playoffs, but he just lost a lawsuit which will have him writing a check for six figures. A woman by the name of Alise Smith filed a lawsuit in Florida back in 2008, claiming Plax rear-ended her with his Mercedes-Benz back in May 2008 ... before his infamous gun incident. Plax did not have insurance at the time. Smith alleged she suffered neck and back injuries and sued him for medical bills, lost wages and damages. The jury ruled in her favor and earlier this month the judge awarded her $125,000, plus interest. Plax just can't catch a break these days. … [Read more...] about NFL Star Plaxico Burress — On the Losing End … of a Lawsuit
UPDATED, 1:21 PM: The final numbers for the 61st annual Grammy Awards are in, and they include an all-time demo low for music’s biggest night. The live CBS show drew a 5.6 rating in the adult 18-49 demographic. That’s down just over 5% from last year’s previous demo low. As for viewership, Sunday’s Grammys is pretty much even with last year’s show, pulling in 19.9 million total viewers, compared with 2018’s 19.8 million. So as Led Zeppelin might sing, the song somewhat remained the same in sets of eyeballs. PREVIOUSLY, 6:09 AM: Michelle Obama kicked things off last night at the 61st Grammy Awards after some “Havana” sizzle, then Lady Gaga continued her Taylor Swift-shocked victory look tour and Ariana Grande won but very clearly wasn’t in the house.

UPDATE, with additional executive comments Disney said its high-stakes entry into the crowded streaming fray will cost $6.99 a month when it launches November 12 in the U.S., with a full-year option of $69.99, or $5.83 a month. Kevin Mayer, head of direct-to-consumer and international, called it “an extremely attractive value proposition” during the home stretch of Disney’s investor day, a three-hour presentation during which a range of details were revealed. Wall Street analysts had been expecting the price to fall somewhere between $6 and $8. There are strategic advantages to undercutting Netflix, which recently raised its subscription prices in the U.S. to $8.99 a month for basic service and $12.99 for high-definition streaming. Other platforms — notably skinny bundles like YouTube TV and DirecTV Now — recently introduce significant price hikes, while T-Mobile’s new TV offering is hitting the market at a not-exactly-bargain-priced $90 a … [Read more...] about Disney Announces Launch Date And Pricing For Disney+ Streaming Service, Eyes Up To 12M Subscribers By 2024
We shouldn’t be asking Facebook to fix the problem. We should be fixing Facebook. It’s our collective misfortune that this perhaps silliest-in-history supercorporation – a tossed-off hookup site turned international cat-video vault turned Orwellian surveillance megavillain – has dragged us all to the very cliff edge of modern technological capitalism. We’ve reached a moment in history where many companies are more powerful than even major industrialized nations, and in some cases have essentially replaced governments as de facto regulators and overseers. But some of those companies suck just a little too badly at the governing part, leaving us staring into a paradox. The Russians call this situation a sobaka na sene, a dog on the hay. Asleep in the manger, the dog itself won’t eat the hay. But it won’t let you eat it either. We’ve got to get the dog off the hay. For much of the past year and a half, the Social Network has been everywhere … [Read more...] about Can We Be Saved From Facebook?
