Against the unstoppable juggernaut of Fox's "American Idol" and the can't-miss mysteries of ABC's "Lost," NBC's "Life" is getting lost in the mix. But it shouldn't be. Its stories, and its actors, are too impressive and likable to go unnoticed...

Last Friday, Conan O'Brien said goodbye to his New York venue and long-running NBC "Late Night" talk show, preparing for a fall move to take over "The Tonight Show." Next Monday, Jimmy Fallon takes O'Brien's slot, and both he and tenured CBS competitor Craig Ferguson are taking the opportunity to define the viewers they're after...

Griping about the Oscars the day after is a national pastime and an annual rite. Hugh Jackman, as host, threw more energy into it than anyone since Billy Crystal. And while he's not as funny, his razzle-dazzle dance moves made for some nice, big-stage moments...

Now that TV offers pretty much everything all the time for everybody, it's hard to imagine a time when it didn't. But on into the 1970s, with just three commercial networks and a public TV system only beginning to take shape...

If this year's Oscar ceremony was pretty much an all-over-the-place mess with a couple good ideas thrown in, then it's mirrored by this year's 31 Days of Oscar stunt at Turner Classic Movies, which for me can't end soon enough. (But doesn't, unfortunately, until March 3...)

See what all the fuss was about. Monday's marathon of the initial episodes of Jericho reminds us why so many viewers cared so much about a show that could have been great...

Every night this weekend, there's a great reason to turn on your TV. Conan O'Brien presides over his final "Late Night" show on Friday, HBO presents the excellent "Taking Chance" telemovie on Saturday, and ABC presents the Oscars on Sunday...

"Welcome to season eight!" Ryan Seacrest keeps saying, as contestants make it from one rung to another on the "American Idol" elimination ladder. Last night, the first three singers to make it to the Top 12 were identified -- bringing a new level of drama, as well as competition, to the new season...

Well, I didn't know this was coming, but I'm thrilled it's here: a new website called eGuiders.com, whose intent is to steer you towards the best of what's out there on the web.

What were my history teachers doing in high school, that they never bothered to tell me the story of Abraham Lincoln's body being stolen, 11 years after his assassination, and held for ransom? The story told tonight in History Channel's "Stealing Lincoln's Body" is astounding. Unbelievable. And even more unbelievable, for being true...
