Jimmy Kimmel told me in early January that he has never been to Buffalo. After looking at the local late-night ratings for the February sweeps, he might consider coming here on his next publicity tour. In his first sweeps period since taking over the 11:35 p.m. time slot from “Nightline” on ABC affiliate Channel 7, Kimmel’s [...]
This is what I’m thinking: Who shot J.R. Monday night on TNT’s new version of “Dallas”? Somehow, I doubt as many people care as did back in the day 33 years ago when the series was a Friday night hit on CBS. The scenes that the late Larry Hagman phoned in about a mysterious plan [...]
