Are you baffled by the love for Game of Thrones?
The fantasy drama has been an unqualified success for HBO, but even as it's entering the home stretch of its third season, not everybody is on board the Westerosi train. Take, for example, this Thrillist writer who insists that women hate Game of Thrones. Crazy as Mad King Aerys, right?
As bona fide women, TVGuide.com's Hanh Nguyen and Sadie Gennis (of the Game of Thrones By the Book chat series) would like to very respectfully discuss some of the biggest issues that the detractors have with the series.
Fred "Mister" Rogers was a good neighbor for years — now his life story is about to be open for all to see.
PBS is heading back to the neighborhood.
Eleven years after the last episode of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood aired and nine years since Fred Rogers' passing, PBS is returning to the iconic children's show — at least to a degree.
It's awfully early for the summer TCA press tour — which began over the weekend, and continues through next week — to have peaked. It's even more rare for an entity like PBS to steal the bigger, richer, more hype-heavy broadcast networks' thunder.
