NEW YORK, Sept. 4, 2015 — Variety was the order of the day (if not the week) in this week’s TV blogs.

The week started with a mostly thumbs-down interpretation of a new brand-awareness campaign created by Turner Classic Movies that turned the word “movie,” a noun, into a verb. The week ended with a commentary about Joan Rivers’ show “Fashion Police” on the one-year anniversary of her death.

In between, Tuesday’s blog looked at the social-media numbers from Sunday’s Video Music Awards on MTV, Wednesday’s blog previewed next week’s renewal of the late-night wars, and Thursday’s blog welcomed the pending arrival of mud-slinging political commercials.
