  • ABC orders up more of ‘The Goldbergs’

    November 4, 2013 | 9:45 am

    Fans of “The Goldbergs,” kvell away. ABC has announced it is picking up the fledgling comedy for a full season.

    While the series received lukewarm reviews from heavyweight critics such as yours truly, it is averaging 7.5 million total viewers and a 2.7 rating in adults 18-49....

  • REALITY CHECK! Which news site tells you the truth?

    By Noga Gur-Arieh

    October 30, 2013 | 1:00 pm

    In the past few weeks, I searched the word “Israel” in leading international news websites, originated in the US and the UK and presenting themselves as balanced and impartial. I examined the stories they tell about my country, and compared them with the facts, only to find that...

  • Emmys tell bleak tale of broadcast TV

    By Melissa Weller

    September 24, 2013 | 5:52 pm

    So the Emmys were on Sunday, and with it no shortage of Neiling, Breaking and flopped attempts at Modernizing. Not least of which was characterized by the slap-happy host jabbing “our younger audience” by clarifying that television is “the thing you watch on your phones.” Cute?...

  • Meet ‘The Goldbergs’: Adam Goldberg mines his family’s mishegoss for new sitcom

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    September 6, 2013 | 1:58 pm

    Adam F. Goldberg still remembers how his father used to come home from work, promptly unbuckle his trousers, drop them by the front door and then declare “the TV’s mine,” before parading around the house in his tighty whities.

    In lieu of car keys when Adam was a teenager, his...

  • George Segal on ABC’s ‘The Goldbergs,’ ‘Where’s Poppa?’ and playing Jewish

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    August 28, 2013 | 11:31 am

    Actor George Segal, the late film critic Roger Ebert once noted, “is good at playing the harassed son of the archetypical Jewish mother. In ‘No Way to Treat a Lady” [1968], he was the vice cop whose mother kept wanting him to finish his soup before rushing to rescue Lee Remick.”

  • ‘The Goldbergs’ come to ABC

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    July 5, 2013 | 7:10 am

    The radio program “The Rise of the Goldbergs” premiered in 1929, introducing America to an unabashedly Jewish immigrant family whose matriarch, Molly (Gertrude Berg) dished out compassion and comedy as rich as her own chicken soup.

    Two decades later, a television version of the...

  • The Bachelorette Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    June 14, 2013 | 9:14 pm

    I cannot stop watching this show, even though I think it is total crap.  I do not believe it works anymore because people use it to get famous, not find love.  I find that I laugh at it more than I find it interesting and this batch of men is just not that appealing.  Des is a...

  • The Odd Appearance of Jewish Superman

    By Abe Fried-Tanzer

    April 7, 2013 | 6:55 am

    Sometimes, a mention of Judaism on television just comes from completely out of nowhere. When I sat down to watch the premiere episode of ABC’s new comedy How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life) last Wednesday night, I wasn’t expecting to hear anything about...

  • Dancing With the Stars Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    March 20, 2013 | 6:05 pm

    I get a kick out of this show.  It is mindless entertainment and a nice way to spend an evening in front of the TV.  Even though Brooke Burke-Charvet bugs the crap out of me, Tom Bergeron is perfection. This season I actually know who most of these people are, which makes it more...

  • The Bachelor is Down to his Final Two

    By Ilana Angel

    February 28, 2013 | 1:42 pm

    Dear Lord. Please make this show end.  I am so bored and at the point where this show is simply painful.  Sean goes on and on about the women and I want to stick my hand down my throat and remove my own kidney so I can throw it at the television.  I will never understand why this...

  • The Bachelor – Roses are Starting to Stink

    By Ilana Angel

    February 18, 2013 | 10:12 pm

    We are enjoying tonight’s episode courtesy of Jose Cuervo.  By enjoying of course I mean booze is required in order for enjoyment to happen. AshLee has the first hometown date and she is going on and on about how much she loves him.  She tells Sean he is just like her dad and it’s...

  • The Bachelor Week 3 Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    January 26, 2013 | 12:42 pm

    This show never changes.  Every year it is the same thing with new faces.  A man we all fall in love with as he tries to woo a woman, then becomes a slut who whores his way through a house of whores.  Fame whores.  I’m sure in the real world they are lovely, but here they are...

  • The Bachelor Week 2 Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    January 15, 2013 | 8:14 am

    There are parts of this show that are so fake I find myself questioning my sanity to watch it every season.  The thing is, there are moments of such raw reality when you get a group of women together, that sitting through two hours a week to get a couple of authentic chicks bashing...

  • The Bachelor is Back

    By Ilana Angel

    January 8, 2013 | 7:15 am

    I love this show and have been waiting for it to come back.  I watch with hope as love is searched for.  In watching the first episode of Sean’s turn as the Bachelor, I find myself not caring about it at all.  This show moves slowly, is scripted by what I assume is teenage girls,...

  • Clara Mamet makes her way in the family biz

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    September 10, 2012 | 4:58 pm

    It was a sweltering day on the North Hills set of ABC’s upcoming sitcom “The Neighbors,” as Clara Mamet opened the door of her trailer with a toss of her long, brown hair. The 17-year-old actress wore peach-colored satin trousers, a floral blouse and a devil-may-care expression as...

  • The Bachelorette Nightmare Ends

    By Ilana Angel

    July 23, 2012 | 9:04 pm

    I love this show and no matter how hard I try to not get sucked in, I always do.  This was, according to the insanely ridiculous Chris Harrison, the most dramatic, surprising and emotional season ever.  The thing is, it’s never that dramatic, surprising or emotional.  Harrison...

  • The Bachelorette Men Tell All Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    July 16, 2012 | 11:29 pm

    This episode comes every season and I have yet to see the point.  What is it with The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise that makes them want to recap every single thing?  There are some funny moments I suppose, but in the end I would be perfectly fine without the tell all specials.

  • The Bachelorette is Crawling to the Finish

    By Ilana Angel

    July 11, 2012 | 8:37 pm

    I got a few emails this week telling me I was being too harsh in terms of Chris Harrison.  I don’t mean to be and so I am sorry.  I will no longer talk about the fact that he is not needed on this show.  I will also not make a big deal about the fact that it is creepy for him to be...

  • The Bachelorette Recap – Hometown Dates

    By Ilana Angel

    July 3, 2012 | 6:36 pm

    We are back in the States, which is both good and bad.  Good because it means we are close to the end, and bad because it means we have to sit through a lot of recapping.  Emily needs to reflect on all her travels and the four men she has left.  I’m not big on reality television...

  • The Bachelorette in Prague

    By Ilana Angel

    June 29, 2012 | 8:33 pm

    Emily and the remaining men are in Prague this week. I think of all the seasons of both the Bachelor and Bachelorette, the locations Emily has been to are my favorite.  I have loved everywhere they have gone.  Prague is beautiful and within the first minute of the show the view is...

  • The Bachelorette is Starting to Bore Me

    By Ilana Angel

    June 19, 2012 | 8:15 pm

    I love this show and I love Emily but I am starting to lose interest in the whole thing.  It is moving very slowly, Emily is sweet but wearing thin, and I’m not sure I see her with any of the men she has left.  There are a couple of great men, but I’m not seeing the chemistry she...

  • Bachelorette Emily in London

    By Ilana Angel

    June 12, 2012 | 1:10 am

    Emily and her daughter are in London, which I am excited about.  Not the show as much as the city.  It is my favorite city in the world, the birthplace of my fabulous boyfriend, and where I hope to retire.  It will be a fun week full of beautiful scenery and embarrassing American...

  • The Bachelorette in Bermuda

    By Ilana Angel

    June 5, 2012 | 8:59 am

    I was certain I would be sick of Emily by now but I love her and think she is fabulous.  The men are not that great which is a drag, but it only takes one good one and she has that.  She looks great and even though she is a lady, we see she is going to drop an F Bomb next week so...

  • The Bachelorette Looks Great in a Harness

    By Ilana Angel

    June 2, 2012 | 2:45 pm


    Let me begin by saying how sorry I am this is so late in getting posted!  I got a kick out of all the emails and nudges to get this puppy up.  I promise that starting this week I will post on Monday nights after the show.  Your loyalty to my Bachelorette recaps is appreciated and...

  • The Bachelorette - Week 2 Recap

    By Ilana Angel

    May 22, 2012 | 12:42 am

    It’s week two and again, just five minutes in, I am totally into it.  Emily is beautiful and that we are in Charlotte, not Los Angeles makes it better.  We see Emily with her daughter and we are reminded that this is, on some level, real.  She would not involve little Ricky if she...

  • The Bachelorette is Back and Surprisingly Good

    By Ilana Angel

    May 20, 2012 | 10:22 pm

    I love the Bachelor/Bachelorette series.  By love of course I mean I am obsessed with it and the worse it becomes, Ashley, the more I want to blog about it.  I am a true romantic and believe love can be found for everyone. By everyone of course I mean everyone who is not on this...

  • Dancing With The Stars Gets Personal

    By Ilana Angel

    April 3, 2012 | 8:28 pm

    This week is about the stars dancing to a song from a memorable year for them.  It is sappy and dramatic, everyone cries telling their personal stories, and the sympathy vote is put into play.  Some were actually quite touching, but others were hilarious.  Sorry, but come on! This...

  • DWTS: The New Season

    By Ilana Angel

    March 20, 2012 | 9:25 am

    I love this show.  I adore Tom Bergeron, like blogging about how dumb Brooke Burke Charvet is, am a closet ballroom dancer, and at the end of the day this show is easy.  It is fun, requires no thinking, and it is exciting to see careers long over get a boost.  This is good...

  • The Bachelor Finale – ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

    By Ilana Angel

    March 13, 2012 | 9:32 am

    To clarify, I am annoyed.  By annoyed of course I mean totally pissed off that I once again got sucked into this show.  It is a complete and total crapfest that has nothing to do with reality, and everything to do with a bunch of losers concerned with finding 15 minutes of fame over...

  • The Bachelor - Our Torture Continues

    By Ilana Angel

    February 28, 2012 | 9:24 am

    This train wreck is almost over and I cannot wait.  Two more weeks until we can say goodbye to ugly haired Ben.  All the bachelors have been disappointments, but this guy’s complete and total grossness has been epic. I am certain the ladies who were not picked are watching at home...
