Tonight’s episode has Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) widening her social circle, and interests, and paying attention to her delivery “boy” – played by guest star, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer veteran, Seth Green.

Sometimes, the best guests on Maher’s show aren’t celebrities, but experts, booked with perfect timing to react to the news. Tonight, for example, the guests include foreign policy expert Richard Haass and journalist John Avlon. Also scheduled: Grover Norquist, Tim Ryan, and Eva Longoria.

Mary Tyler Moore never actually worked for a real-life local TV news team. It just seemed that way because of her indelible role as indomitable Mary Richards of Minneapolis’ WJM-TV...

Why point out obscure Golf Channel coverage of a low-level PGA tournament on opening day? Because it’s part of an ongoing, unpredictable story: the potential, but by no means guaranteed, comeback of Tiger Woods. Woods has attempted comebacks several times before, trying to bounce back after a public scandal, health problems, back surgery, and an errant swing. But since turning professional, he’s never been away from a PGA tournament as long as he has here – 17 months. And suppo

SERIES PREMIERE: Boy, is this weird – but then again, Archie comics, on which this new CW teen series is based, always were weird anyway.
