Showtime, 9:00 p.m. ET

 

Okay, I give up. Two Sundays in a row now, I’ve screwed up by misidentifying episodes as finales. Two weeks ago, I called Escape at Dannemora a miniseries finale, when there was still one more episode to go. And last week, I thought it was the season finale of Ray Donovan, when it still had three episodes to go. All I can say is, it’s harder keeping track these days – and it’s far from my all-time journalistic error. That occurred in the late 1970s, when I reviewed an NBC made-for-TV musical sequel to L’il Abner called L’il Abner in Dogpatch Today. I wrote, and the paper printed it, that if Al Capp, the cartoonist creator of L’il Abner, were still alive, this new NBC program would have killed him. Well, he was alive. So I wrote a retraction about his being dead, and the paper printed it the next morning. Except, overnight, he did die – so the day after that, I had to print another retraction, saying that when I had said Capp was dead, he was alive, but when I said the next day he was alive, he was dead. Sigh. So no, Ray Donovan is not presenting its season finale tonight. But even if it is…

I am fascinated by you people who work in the "Media" (TV, Radio & Online) who talk-report-critique the "Media", yet never really watch or pay attention to the current TV, Radio/music, Online or Movies
