Have to thank cottage neighbour Jimmy for the heads up on Sunday’s episode of Family Guy. If you missed it live (as I did), check out the high points in the video, above, or stream it here at Citytv Go. Basically, Family Guy ran Donald Trump through a shredder. Every possible joke about his tiny
It’s interesting to compare — or re-boot around — Thursday night’s revival of Murphy Brown vs. last winter’s revival of Roseanne. In both instances I wasn’t expecting much. Two sitcoms coming back after 20 year absences. Did anybody ever ask for more from these shows? Roseanne, however, really surprised me. I didn’t expect to care
When the news broke this week that, after 27 years, The Jerry Springer Show was being cancelled, my reaction — like a lot of people I suspect — was, “Is that still on?” Back when I wrote for The Toronto Sun, I remember arriving for an interview with Springer 15 years or so ago when he

She’s soft-spoken and
Tom Kirkman would never tell NFL players to stand for the national anthem. At least, that’s my hunch. I didn’t get to check that with the man who plays president Kirkman on Designated Survivor, Kiefer Sutherland. I interviewed the Emmy-winning actor late last week, before Trump’s latest howler. Still, I’m pretty sure he’d agree. “I don’t believe you should be using
“We haven’t seen this many people come forward to speak out against a bill since Cosby.” On Thursday night, Jimmy Kimmel gave a brilliant and blistering, ferociously funny rebuttal to the Louisiana senators who are trying to — in the face of tremendous opposition from national health organizations and specialists — repeal and replace Obamacare.
