Cheers & Jeers: LeBron Shoots an Airball on ESPN

LeBron James

Jeers to ESPN for turning LeBron James' The Decision into a sideshow.

Cheers & Jeers: The (James) Franco Regime Rules!

James Franco, General Hospital

Cheers to James Franco for achieving the impossible: getting me to watch a soap opera.

I hadn't dialed up a daytime drama since my brief, inexplicable high-school addiction to the recently snuffed-out Guiding Light, but I caught a bit of James Franco's bizarre turn as nutso performance artist Franco on General Hospital last fall, and I tuned back in to see his return.  He didn't disappoint: Resurfacing in Port Charles as a... read more

Cheers & Jeers: Reggie Watts Up!

Reggie Watts

Cheers to Reggie Watts for lighting up the small screen.
