U.K.’s in Jeopardy! — baby — just — for one month?

The most recent version of the United Kingdom’s version of “Jeopardy!” has concluded its most recent series (“season” in American terms) after nearly one month. If ITV commissions another series, I’ve got ideas for improvements. But first, let’s look at the positives. As the old saying goes, if it looks like a duck and quacks …

Remembering the founder of TV’s best-known Doug’s Place

When my late brother and I were building Doug Morris dot org, I came up with the name Doug’s Place as a nod to an establishment on “Days of Our Lives”. The Doug in that Doug’s Place was Doug Williams, played by Bill Hayes. Word came this weekend Hayes passed away at the age of …

Another one bites the dust?

Belated wishes for a happy new year, everyone. If 2024 is not off to a great start, there is plenty of time for a turnaround. However, it appears it’s too late for a former nemesis of Doug’s Place. A colleague sent me these photos. The colleague also called the number listed for Direct Media Services …

Who can you trust?: Part IV

Okay, I’ll concede waiting for “the writer” to correct a mistake that is more than 12 months old is like leaving the porch light on for Jimmy Hoffa. So, the Kristen Welker era of “Meet the Press” is underway. It started with an in-depth interview with — the 45th President of the United States, Donald …

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes (that Geof approved)

If you knew Geof, you knew he loved hockey. You knew he loved his Boston Bruins. But closer to home, he loved his UAH Chargers. When he was color commentator on the radio, it was great to see him be big brother to many players on the team. Many players came from Canada and other …

Some insight on “Insight”

A particular episode of a classic weekly series was recommended by YouTube recently. I’ll get to that in a moment. But first, some notes about the series itself. “Insight” was a religious-themed anthology that aired in syndication for more than two decades. Its host and creator was Father Ellwood E. “Bud” Kieser. The 71-year-old priest, …

Who can you trust?: Part III

Time for a follow-up to this original post. I’m only hotlinking this time because of recent developments and to, hopefully, help “the writer” see the error of his ways. First, let’s revisit this erroneous post. It’s bad enough “the writer” based this article on rumors and not a lot of facts. At least he called …

You’re a fake, baby. You can’t conceal it. Part V.

(Update on Esther Bea from Part IV. As of this writing, no response from her or the real lady who’s been victimized by Esther’s swiping. I’m kinda wondering when this series will end myself. ‘Til then…) Fake profiles aren’t limited to Facebook. Against my better judgment, I returned to online dating late last month. I …

You’re a fake, baby. You can’t conceal it. Part IV.

I didn’t mean for this to become a miniseries. But — it’s time to call out another fake. About two months ago, Esther Bea reached out and wanted to get personal on Facebook. She, like other fakes, asked about my professional and personal life, called me by terms of endearment instead of by name, etc. …

You’re a fake, baby. You can’t conceal it. Part III.

I’m on a roll, folks. A fake Facebooker pretended to be from this area. I won’t say the exact town. But let’s just say I was so ready to call her bluff. She, like others, never called me by my first name. She only addressed me by “sweetie”, “dear”, or some other term of endearment. …
