This week’s TV blogs — Trump, Donny Deutsch, TV court shows, O’Reilly vs. Will and Bernie Madoff.

NEW YORK, Nov. 13, 2015 — The week began with Donald Trump on “Saturday Night Live” and ended with TV’s dueling Madoffs — Robert De Niro and Richard Dreyfuss.

In between, this week’s MediaPost TV blogs included a look at Bill O’Reilly’s bullying brawl with George Will, another look at adman Donny Deutsch’s new sitcom on USA Network and a blog post about trial lawyers and their obsession with TV court shows (an idea that came to me while I was dozing off on jury duty in Manhattan this week).

Read all five of my MediaPost TV blogs from this past week with these links:

Monday, Nov. 9: Trump On ‘SNL’: As He Might Say, It Was A Total Disaster

Tuesday, Nov. 10: Random Thoughts You Might Have While Watching ‘Donny!’

Wednesday, Nov. 11: Trial Lawyers Obsessed With Influence Of TV Court Shows On Jurors

Thursday, Nov. 12: Bullied By O’Reilly, George Will Has The Last Word (So Far)

Friday, Nov. 13: Madoff Face-Off: De Niro, Dreyfuss Are TV’s Dueling Bernies

NEW YORK, June 19, 2015 — The busiest man in TV this week may have been Matt Lauer. At the very least, he drew enough attention with two high-profile interviews to appear twice in this week’s rundown of my five MediaPost TV blogs — Tuesday’s blog about Lauer’s interview with race masquerader Rachel Dolezal and Friday’s blog on Lauer’s interview with Brian Williams. Also this week: “Seinfeld,” Donald Trump and Jeb Bush. Read all five of my MediaPost TV blogs for the week with the links below:

Monday, June 15: ‘Seinfeld’ Repeats On Hulu: Much Ado About ‘Nothing’

Tuesday, June 16: Politics Of ‘Self-Identification’ Takes Center Stage In Lauer-Dolezal Interview

Wednesday, June 17: Stars For A Day: Trump, Jeb Bush Take Over TV For Most Of Tuesday

NEW YORK, March 6, 2013 — Just because there have been no new posts here on TVHowl in a while doesn’t mean I’m not blazing the usual trail on the TV beat.

It all depends on where you look: When I’m not contriving posts to enlighten and entertain here on TVHowl, I’m working my day job for the Comcast Xfinity Web site.   My entire Xfinity archive can be found here — a treasure trove of nearly 2,400 stories and columns about TV written and produced by yours truly since June 2010.

Among the many recent stories over the last few weeks: Assessing Howard Stern’s chances of hosting NBC’s “Late Night,” previewing “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice” with Dennis Rodman and Omarosa, Jimmy Kimmel emerging as the likely host of next year’s Oscars, Jimmy Fallon preparing to replace Jay Leno, Bill O’Reilly commenting on Michelle Obama’s appearance at the Oscars, Heidi Klum joining “America’s Got Talent” as the show’s fourth judge, Seth MacFarlane hosting the Oscars, and a new Anthony Edwards series on ABC getting cancelled after three weeks.
