This is what I'm thinking: WGRZ-TV (Channel 2) co-anchor Maryalice Demler introduced Wednesday's segment of the series "If My Parents Only Knew" by saying "this week we've asked teenagers" about issues concerning them. Demler and co-anchor Scott Levin repeatedly said things introducing the series like "as we continue our series" and "we sit with parents and teenagers…

I'll say this for the cover of In Touch Magazine. It stopped me in my tracks at the supermarket checkout line. I immediately dove in and started reading the cover story as I waited t0 pay for my cottage cheese. Here's what the cover promised. "Matt (Lauer) Replaced by Megyn (Kelly). It's Personal! Inside the Ultimate Betrayal His 'Today' Co-Workers Speak Out …

A Western New York native is in the current edition of the Discovery Channel reality series "Naked and Afraid XL." Shannon Kulpa is naked, I'm afraid for her. In the series, which airs new episodes at 10 p.m. May 7, nine contestants roam the Amazon jungle without clothes, shoes, food, water or shelter. They navigate a jungle full of spiders, tarantulas, snakes and al…

My new favorite TV channel is…. Twitter. Through links sent by followers, it allows me to see things that I forget to DVR and to go to bed early to see things that haven't aired yet. For example, I forgot to DVR Saturday night's Samantha Bee special on TBS, "Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner" that aired opposite the real correspondents' dinner on C-Span (w…

"Welcome to the series finale of the White House Correspondent's Dinner," wisecracked Hasan Minhaj on Saturday night. Hasan Who? Minhaj, or, if you want to know, the very reason I made it a point to watch. While I would never waste a second praising the orgy of showbiz and political coziness that Washington's annual event devolved into, I've long been a dedicated wat…

The cinephile must-see documentary of 2017 is not showing in theaters -- it’s streaming on Netflix. However, the three-part series “Five Came Back” is so involving, so powerful, and so breathtakingly insightful that even non-film buffs will be enthralled. This story of how five Hollywood filmmaking giants contributed to the propaganda battle of World War II is, qu…

WIVB-TV (Channel 4) headed into the May sweeps with strong momentum in its battle for news supremacy with WGRZ-TV (Channel 2). During the month of April, Channel 4 was ahead in eight of the nine time periods in household ratings where the two stations competed. Channel 2's lone victory was at 6 a.m. It usually wins the 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. news block, which Channel 4 …

The Top 10 takeaways from bouncing between ESPN and The NFL Network watching the NFL Draft Thursday night: 1) ESPN analyst Louis Riddick and NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock, who are the experts most worth listening to, applauded the Buffalo Bills choice of LSU cornerback Tre' Davious White with the 27th pick of the draft. Riddick, who is the brother of former Bill Ro…

I often think about how I would watch television if my job didn't require me to watch so much of it. I am writing this as I look at a wall in my house that has a framed story given to me after I retired from this newspaper in May of 2010 that has the headline: "He Watched Crap So We Didn't Have To." I stayed retired for about a month before starting a blog that event…

When the ratings for the Top 10 markets for the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs carried by NBC and cable's NBCSN were recently released, Western New Yorkers proclaimed "We're No. 1!" on social media. And they should have been proud of the accomplishment that illustrates that Buffalo is a very strong hockey market. However, people on social media also shouted …

This is what I'm thinking: The former owner of WIVB-TV isn’t the only media company making millions off the sale of spectrum. Faith Broadcasting, the owner of the religious channel WNYB-TV, is receiving about $32 million from the Federal Communications Commission for Channel 26's UHF spectrum, or frequencies for communication over the airwaves. It will then move to…

Most Western New Yorkers think of the area as a hockey town, not a basketball town. That's one reason that sports station WGR devotes more time to talking about the Stanley Cup playoffs than the National Basketball Association playoffs. But here's a first-round upset. In a head-to-head match-up April 23, a first-round NBA game between the Houston Rockets and Oklah…
