From LA Examiner: 'DWTS' 17 Cast Revealed; Advance Reviews of 'The Goldbergs', 'Trophy Wife', & 'Back in the Game'...

A Bayside High alumn and a Malibu Sands one (but sadly not Zack Morris himself in ballet tights), a recent New Directions graduate, a Pretty Little Liars hunk, and the Science Guy himself. These are just a few of the stars that will make up the 17th season of ABC's Dancing with the Stars, as announced this morning on Good Morning America... [MORE]

"Fall 2013 TV Preview: ABC's The Goldbergs"

Did you like The Wonder Years but wish politics had been replaced by pop culture? Do you like yelling? Do you remember things like Alf and Sam Goody? Then ABC's new family comedy The Goldbergs will be for you! ... [MORE]

And finally, there is a strong baseball element to the show as she gets involved in coaching her son's Little League team after he fails to make the major one in the neighborhood but wants to play anyway. While there's nothing necessarily wrong with a sports story, and while second chances and redemption in relationships can actually be a very sweet and positive angle to take, it's just not something I personally want to watch. But on a broader scale, I can't imagine most of you will want to watch it either simply because it's just not funny... [MORE]
