Yesterday I checked out, for the first time, the office I'll be using when I become a full-time college professor, teaching TV and film at Rowan University in New Jersey. It had enough room that I requested a media roller cart, so I could house my dad's first TV set there and do something I've wanted to do for 10 years as an adjunct professor...

Call me crazy, because in this respect I am. Can't ever get enough Christmas TV -- even in August. And it just so happens a bunch of cool yule episodes are airing over the next few days...

I try, I really do, to take a positive approach to TV criticism -- to get more joy from finding and celebrating the good than from gang-tackling and mutilating the bad. But sometimes, a show is so bad that its failure is, as Martha Stewart would say, is a good thing...

Part of me wanted to say nothing, so you'd all think you'd gone mad... especially since, until and unless a few more bugs are worked out, it may be a one-time thing. But today, TV WORTH WATCHING finally implemented something my website designer worked up a few months ago...

"A picture of the west that is at once romanticized and surprisingly decrepit." Could we be speaking of Deadwood? Actually, look back 35 years...

Whew. I'm just back from two weeks at the L.A. press tour, where TV critics heard all about the networks' fall plans for scripted shows. Which makes it all the more depressing to look through tonight's network listings and find . . . reality crap...

Just as in Vegas: you bet too often, you get too cocky, you lose big. Buoyed by my relatively accurate predictions for the opening-weekend box-office totals for the "Sex and the City" and "Get Smart" movies, I returned to the table to bet again, on the summer's third and final TV-to-film offering, "X-Files: I Want to Believe"...

I hope Matthew Weiner, the passionate and innovative creator of AMC's Mad Men, won't take this the wrong way, but I've found errors in his fabulous period drama about Madison Avenue ad-agency employees in the early 1960s. Of course, to find them, I had to visit the set, poke around, and look closely. Very, VERY closely...

Okay, gang. I've held dinky little contests to see which TV WORTH WATCHING reader comes closest to the opening-weekend box-office totals for the TV-to-movie versions of "Sex and the City" and "Get Smart." Now it's time for the third and final small-to-big-screen effort of the summer, and another guessing game -- this time with "The X-Files"...

I'm back -- a little early since it ends today, but I'm back. Back from the latest Television Critics Association press tour, the highlight of which was the 24th (and, so far, best) TCA Awards show Saturday night. I'm a little fatigued, a little proud, and, since this most likely was my last time on press tour, a little nostalgic...
