No one gets out alive, not even the man known for most of his adult life as "America's Oldest Teenager." Dick Clark died Wednesday at age 82 of a heart attack. And no one wants to dance to that beat...

Even his own CBS network called him a "pit-bull reporter" in the first sentence of its tribute to the late, inimitable Mike Wallace...My most vivid recollection of him is as a father who talked openly of reconnecting with his likewise famous son, Chris Wallace...

Nuns are all right by me...So that's the context of this review of "God Is The Bigger Elvis," the Oscar-nominated short documentary film charting the transformation of Dolores Hart from movie star to the current Mother Prioress in Bethlehem, Connecticut...

A horse is a horse, of course of course. If only it were that easy with Luck, a measured and at times almost mystical series devoted to the so-called "Sport of Kings" -- and degenerate gamblers. HBO took the unprecedented step of sending out all nine episodes of Season 1. And you'll pretty much win in the end if you ride this mount all the way to the finish line...

The numbers, the premise, the interconnectivity and Kiefer Sutherland as a beaten-down airport baggage handler. None of these quite adds up in Fox's Touch...

TNT's new version of Dallas won't be premiering until sometime this summer. But the network already has the opening episode completed, and sent it to TV writers in advance of January's press tour in Pasadena. This won't be a full review by any means. Instead, consider it an extended first impression. And in that context, Dallas will be getting off to a high, wide and handsome re-start, beginning with a jolt...

ABC's critically reviled Work It, canceled after a two-episode infliction, will be replaced on Valentine's night by the returning Cougar Town, ABC announced Tuesday...

Alcatraz doesn't lack for tourists -- and probably never will. But they might have to commission a few more boats if Fox's same-named series becomes a prime-time mainstay...
