As we head into the big game with chips and dip in hand and Deflategate jokes ready to roll, I turned to a leading expert on the topic of Super Bowl advertising, Tony Ponturo of The Kirmser/Ponturo Group, to get his take on the formulas that will ultimately define this year's advertising winners and losers.
I couldn't tell you who's won or name a single contestant, which has always been the main criticism of The Voice UK. If it claims to find talent and create brand new popstars, where are they?
Despite the highs and inevitable lows of being a business developer for the last 20 years, I've not only managed to create a great team since 2000 but we've also changed the way our clients think about how to open doors from cold.
Is Chris Soules so boring that the producers' only recourse is to turn the show into an ongoing bloopers reel? Probably.
These days I've become increasingly bored of television formats and much prefer the company of my laptop, the neighbours cat (who wanders through my conservatory in a daily escape bid from captivity) and a mug of beef tea.
They don't make them like that anymore. The First Lady of Arab cinema and its Golden Age, legend Faten Hamama, is gone, leaving a rich heritage that helped turn her country, Egypt, into a Hollywood on the Nile.
Though Interstellar is dazzling, and (full disclosure) did make me cry a little, Black Mirror is utilizing the resources and extended parameters that science fiction provides and using it to help humans evaluate themselves and see their flaws.
There are a million and one things to consider when moving house including ordering a phone line and a broadband connection. However, I strongly recommend waiting to ensure you get the right deal for you and don't end up paying more than is necessary.
Bungle, I mean Paul Cullihan was hoping his audition would end with five chairs spinning, sadly there was no 'rainbow' at the end of his performance and he went home.
Dr. Oz dispenses such advice regularly on his TV show and many health related resolutions start with "I heard it on Dr. Oz", but how sound are his recommendations?
The final twist, if twist it is, was that Katie Hopkins had to be nice to everyone or risk suffering her worst nightmare. We weren't told what that was, but I should imagine it's being ignored. Oh, the two slebs up for eviction are Chloe Goodman and Alexander O'Neal.
It's been a long, grueling wait, but last night we finally got our fix with the live season premier of ABC's The Bachelor! This season features "Prince Farming" and Bachelorette runner-up, Chris Soules -- a guy who's so deep in the Iowa boondocks, the closest Starbucks is over an hour away!
Ultimately, the only things a comedy really needs are a good script, a good cast to perform it, a good crew to make it and the goodwill of the audience to take it to their hearts. If a writer thinks he has an idea that ticks all those boxes, he's entitled to give it a crack and it's absolutely crucial that he's allowed to try to break ground and boundaries.
Katie Hopkins does not represent fat women, in fact she doesn't represent women in the UK at all, so despite her attempt to speak on behalf of us all... she can't possibly. I will not be watching the show and I implore you not to, not even for curiosity's sake.
Between last episode and this one, The Interview went from a planned wide release to a cancelled release to a limited release to an online release. Phew!
I'm a child of television and have grown up on great television. I recognize TV is a tough business and it's hard to make television that is good. Thankfully, good television is still being made and 2014 had its share of great TV moments. Here, some of my favourites.
