The Wednesday Playlist: ABC's Got Family Game, Broadchurch Finale, SVU

ABC's innocuous new sitcom about likable underdogs, Back in the Game, could just as easily be called "Luck of the Draw." This Bad News Bears-lite gets a major assist right out of the gate with an enviable time period (Wednesday, 8:30/7:30c) sandwiched between TV's best family comedies, The Middle and Modern Family. Which could always backfire, of course, if the show doesn't live up to ratings expectations, and while this Little League comedy doesn't quite measure up to the big leagues, we shouldn't be surprised if family audiences rally around the team, turning a solid base hit into something potentially worthy of extra innings.read more

The Wednesday Playlist: Family Road Trip, Final Idol Showdown, More Finales

Let's Hit the Rewind Button....

Welcome back to Dave's Traveler blog. After a break for the Fourth of July holiday, on July 11 we return for the final two episodes of the season... and perhaps of the show. Yes, in my efforts to keep you guys up to date, we have sadly reached the point where our show is most likely not coming back. ABC has officially let our cast contracts lapse. While this is not a formal cancellation, we are meant to fade away quietly, as this article from the L.A. Times suggests.The Traveler fans are doing everything they can to pull a Jericho, and if you want to see updates on their ideas and progress, you can check out the various fan forums on the Web. Here's hoping that I do not need to provide you with series closure on this blog. But if that is the case, it will be one hell of an entry.Now, I am not a guy who has many regrets in life. But I realized that because so much time has passed since we actually filmed the shows, I have probably been robbing you guys of some good "behind the scenes... read more

New Fletch DVD Extras Include Two Steak Sandwiches and Ball Bearings

Thank god, it's... the DVD. A new Fletch: The Jane Doe Edition DVD slated for release on May 1 boasts a digitally remastered picture and includes the new featurettes "Just Charge It to the Underhills: Making and Remembering Fletch," "From John Cocktoaston to Harry S. Truman: The Disguises," and a compilation of favorite Fletch moments. (I was only kidding about the sandwiches and ball bearings, though it is all ball bearings these days.) I don't usually single out DVD releases in their own news item, but this is one of the funniest, most quotable films of all time, and exceptions will be made. Now does anyone have a towel? My car just hit a.... read more
