ESPN’s new channel features Tim Tebow as a host and will air 45 live football games
It’s August. It’s the Southeast. Are you ready for some college football? That question is purely rhetorical because, ready or not, here comes ESPN’s SEC Network, ramming round-the-clock gridiron action and commentary—including gospel from Saint Tebow himself—smack into your face mask.Read more
Is Rick going to lose his roots?
Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse. In four seasons of The Walking Dead, Sheriff Rick lost his society, his best friend, his wife, his infant daughter (for a while), his razor, and then his freedom in an apparently cannibalistic Terminus.

An update on which movie and TV crews are disrupting your commute.
By now, it’s well established that Atlanta is the “Hollywood of the South” (or “Y’allywood,” if you will).

We totally see Rick as a comedy lead. But why keep Lori around?
The Walking Dead already has been given the House of Cards treatment, so it’s inevitable that a total mood-swing parody would follow. Matin Comedy envisions TWD as a Full House-esque 1980s sitcom.
For those of us who still first think of Andrew Lincoln as the hopelessly smitten gallery guy in Love Actually (and I know I’m not the only one) the thought of Rick as a lovable comedy lead makes total sense. My main kvetch with this perky send up is the excessive screen time allocated to Lori. Really?Read more
