The New Fall Season 2017: Fridays

We’re nearing the end of a week of looking at the new fall season on broadcast TV night by night with an evening that just has one new show. And what a lousy one it is. Luckily, it’s also the night of the week when Netflix tends to issue its new programming.  NEW SHOW “Marvel’s [...]

Seth MacFarlane’s Space Ship Stalls

Seth MacFarlane’s “Family Guy” has made Fox so much money over the years that he’s seemingly been allowed to indulge his every fantasy — from touring Sinatra-style crooner to motion picture leading man (casting Charlize Theron as his love interest).
