MSNBC, Futurama, and some music stuff

Looks like my pundit career is “taking off.” Tomorrow, I’ll be on MSNBC, around 2:10 PM ET, representing TV Squad. I’ll be interviewed for their special “Super Tuesday” political show, discussing a new TV Guide article that finds out the shows the presidential candidates like to watch. They’re asking me to have fun with the topic; after having seen a press release that lists some of the candidates’ choices, I don’t think that will be much of a problem.

Other stuff:

Just posted: A TV Squad interview I did with David X. Cohen, executive producer (along with Matt Groening and others) and show-runner of Futurama, on the DVD release of Bender’s Big Score and the show’s return to TV.

Also: In the December issue of New Jersey Monthly, I wrote two articles for their Music Issue package: One on Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne, and a lengthier one on Robert Randolph. Neither piece is online yet, but it should be on the stands as we speak.

  1. Mike says:

    Just saw you on MSNBC. I thought you tried to hard to criticize everyone. Maybe what’s they told you to do, but you came across badly. Obama was the only one to pick a good show (The Wire) and you still had to criticize him for it (“everyone likes that show”). My guess is that if they picked the shows you wanted them to pick (“The L Word”), you’d still find a way to criticize them.

  2. I think they just wanted someone to goof on the choices. If I went too far with Obama, oh, well. It was a fun five minutes and they seemed to enjoy it. I’ll try to do better the next time, if there is one.
