Happy endings all the way around on "Entourage"? What a concept. In Sunday's season finale of HBO's series about the ups and downs of life in Hollywood, Vinny (Adrian Grenier) got off the mat and landed the lead in Martin Scorsese's next film to rescue his career. Vinny then apologized to his buddy and manager, Eric (Kevin Connolly), who set the wheels in mot…

Time Warner Cable sure was resourceful Friday night in delivering the University at Buffalo's thrilling 40-34 victory over Bowling Green in double overtime that assured the Bulls a postseason bowl bid. It can even be forgiven the fact that the picture on Channel 13 often had some annoying interference that made it difficult at times to see the field. TWC carried the ga…

After many national prime time telecasts involving the Buffalo Bills, fans usually can find something to complain about. But ESPN's coverage of the Bills' 29-27 loss to the Cleveland Browns Monday night was respectful of the area and its fans and mostly on the money when dealing with game strategy. Of course, the ESPN announcing trio of Ron Jaworski, Tony Kornheiser an…

She is everywhere, she is everywhere. We're talking about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who cooked for NBC's Matt Lauer on "Today" this week during a media tour that also included interviews with Fox's Greta Van Susteren, CNN's Wolf Blitzer and Larry King and just about any other media member who wanted to talk with her. Whether it was Lauer eating a salmon dish or…

Keep your children out of Fox's "Hell's Kitchen" and away from the Fox animated shows like "American Dad" and "Family Guy." That's the word from The Parents Television Council, a watchdog organization that calls itself non-partisan but is viewed by many to be a conservative interest group. The three prime time programs above were declared …

Talk about a quick breakup. The end of this season's lesbian relationship on "Grey's Anatomy" Thursday between Dr. Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) and Dr. Erica Hahn (Brooke Smith) was so abrupt that it didn't give the two characters much time to deal with many issues. In the episode's next-to-last scene, Erica broke up with Callie as they walked out of Seattle G…

If you’re to believe the Associated Press story that ran on the front page of today’s Buffalo News, then the 2008 presidential election was close to being decided at 8 tonight when ABC and NBC projected Democrat Barack Obama would win Pennsylvania. CBS, CNN and Fox News were more cautious to make the projection, which had great significance to the national race. Fox…

The TV drama and suspense in the presidential race between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain essentially could be over as early as 8:30 p.m. Tuesday or it could last through the early morning hours, according to TV analysts.

The ratings news wasn't as good on Thursday for Channel 4 as it was on its first day back on Time Warner Cable systems on Wednesday. After returning to first place Wednesday at 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 7 p.m,, Channel 4's newscasts were second to Channel 2's at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Thursday, the first night of the November sweeps.

The owner of Channel 4 and Channel 23 and Time Warner Cable finally made a national deal today that immediately put the stations back on local cable. That means most Buffalo Bills games and such popular CBS programs as "Criminal Minds" and "CSI" are back on cable.

How long did it take one of Channel 7's main anchors to say "7 News" on the first day of the return of the Eyewitness News theme and format? Would you believe 10 seconds? To her credit, Joanna Pasceri caught herself using the 7 News slogan at 5 p.m. and quickly changed it to Eyewitness News. You can't blame her for the misstep since saying 7 News is probably a …
