Tucker Carlson’s latest opinion piece once again makes me wish Family Guy was on any other network. Look, Fox, we both know this marriage isn’t working anymore. The sex is only once a year, I don’t get along with your mother, and well… I’ve been having an affair with NBC.

Unsurprisingly, Ted Lasso delivered Apple TV+’s biggest day with the season two premiere last month. Everybody loves Ted Lasso.
David Chase is as surprised as anyone that the love for The Sopranos has endured — but he shouldn’t be. As far as I’m concerned, it remains the best television show of all time. There have been some strong contenders — just off the top of my head, I would point to Breaking Bad, Fargo, Atlanta, and Watchmen — but The Sopranos endures.
Here’s the true story behind the Dybbuk Box, about which there have been three movies made and countless episodes of various ghost shows. Spoiler alert: It’s a hoax. (A hoax I have actually been in the same room with.)
It’s the 21st century, and The Hallmark Channel only just this summer featured their first same-sex kiss. Progress, I suppose.
And in positive news:
Hi. It's Bob.
To my family and friends who have surrounded me this week.
And for the outpouring of love from everyone who expressed concern and care for me. It’s overwhelming. But I feel the love and it means so much.
