TV Fresh?

TV is in a state never seen before. Creativity is high, and there are many outlets for good storytelling, comedy, drama, etc. etc. But that doesn't mean the best shows ever are on right now (forgive me fans of The Office).
So, what's the best show in TV history?
Abbi writes, "My Two Dads."
A show way ahead of it's time. It was the 1980s, so they had to pretend they weren't gay but we all get it.
I say the best (and most important) show in TV history: Sesame Street. Whoa, I bet you weren't expecting that! Look, since 1969 this show has been probably the first show Americans watch. That spans several generations and will continue for many more. It's the first place I saw Stevie Wonder, Bill Cosby, Cher, Michael Jackson, Dr. J... shoot the list is way too long to write here. Not only that, but Big Bird and Snuffy and Oscar taught us basic goodness and the importance of reading, education, and even race relations. A mix of pop culture, learning, and the most creative world of puppets ever created. It has a street edge too.

Headlines are fun!

Paris Hilton is getting sued for not promoting her movie "Pledge This!" Instead of being sued, we should thank her for making sure no one saw it!

The makers of "Pledge This!" claim Paris Hilton didn't fulfill her obligations to appear on talk shows to promote the film. Don't blame her, she didn't promote her sex tape either yet 20 million people still watched it.

Paris is getting sued by the producers of "Pledge This!" I pledge we sue them for putting Paris in another movie.

I loved this one as a kid:

Tomorrow: Who was your favorite baseball player? Leave it in the comments and Friday I'll tell you mine.

My favorite baseball player would have to be Babe Ruth, for mastering the game before steroids were invented. Oh, and Lou Gherig too, for being eloquent, poised and brave in the face of illness. Oh and Joe DiMaggio, partly for being married to Marilyn Monroe but mostly for looking like Jerry Orbach. I loved Dirty Dancing.
