FX Cancels Lights Out. Why Can’t Sports Dramas Last?

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

FX Networks officially announced last week that boxing drama "Lights Out" will not be brought back for a second season. Despite critical acclaim and a ton of support internally at FX, the show will unfortunately have its final episode next Tuesday. Personally, I really enjoyed "Lights Out" and thought a gritty ...

Caroline Wozniacki And Jimmer Fredette Make For A Good Evening

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Last night I wasn't sure what to watch. I knew the San Diego State-BYU game would be entertaining, but I wasn't sure how long I'd be able to stick with it, plus it didn't start until 10 p.m. here. Luckily, women's tennis kept me interested for once. Watching 20-year-old Danish sensation ...

Barry Stanton: Today’s A-Hole Of The Day

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

Congratulations to Barry Stanton. And no, I'm not referring to the oldie British rock-n-roller who know tours as a geriatric across Australia.

His veiled ...

It Happened Again

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

Years from now, USC's 36-7 loss to Oregon State in Corvallis will probably just be a hilarious footnote from a very odd season for the Southern California Trojans. Probation, no bowl games, and terrible defense (despite the presence of Monte Kiffin) will probably get most of the press. But USC losing ...
