Okay, so I ate my scones, drank my tea and watched the Royal Wedding, transmitted live on BBC America. So here's my personal instant wedding album, of quick screen grabs of some of my favorite moments...

Hope you weren't looking forward to Sunday's Fox Animation Domination three-way crossover stunt. It is no more. It has ceased to be. At least until next season...

How much TV coverage of a royal wedding can one country stand? Americans are finding out -- with Friday's marriage of the UK's WIlliam Who Would Be King and his betrothed Commoner Catherine -- the answer to that question is "saturation." OK, I get live as-it-happens satellite coverage on ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC. Or news channels like CNN and MSNBC. Even PBS, with its raging Anglophilia. And obviously, BBC America. Obviously, Wedding Central. But do we need live nuptials on TLC, home of Extreme

Anyone who is still wondering why broadcast soap operas are disappearing before our eyes need only review recent episodes of ABC's General Hospital...

The thing I remember most from my years at CBS working on Everybody Loves Raymond is the sound of Phil Rosenthal's laugh. I always welcomed hearing that laugh. Who wouldn't? In Russia, not so much...

Last-second warning -- and, I hope, a treat, at least to some. On Thursday's edition of NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross, I review a boxed set I've been meaning to get to for a while. It's Rocky & Bullwinkle & Friends: The Complete Series...

Embarking on their 15th season of Comedy Central's South Park, have that show's creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, lost their edge? Uh. no. Not when Wednesday's season premiere (10 p.m. ET) imagines a new Apple piece of firmware that requires a human three-way -- and not when their hit Broadway musical, The Book of Mormon, includes such indelible lyrics as "I have maggots in my scrotum"...

I don't know what bothers me more about ABC's announcement that it has canceled All My Children and One Life to Live, two of its three long-running soap operas...

Now here's something you don't get to see in prime time -- an actor playing the same role for 40 years. And we might not be seeing it much longer in daytime, either. So be there Wednesday when ABC's "One Life to Live" celebrates Erika Slezak's four decades (and six Emmys) playing solid citizen/slutty chick Viki Lord Lord Riley Burke Riley Buchanan Buchanan Carpenter Davidson Banks...

I grew up in a segregated community in a segregated America. Like many others, I learned during the late 1950s and into the '60s how wrong this was, and have tried since then to make amends for my ignorance. But as proven by PBS's current nonfiction series about slavery and its impact on Latin America, I remain more ignorant than I imagined...
