Ted Talks Education, Constitution USA With Peter Sagal

Ted Talks Education, Constitution USA With Peter Sagal
PBS has demonstrated it can compete in the rough-and-tumble of primetime with the breakthrough success of “Downton Abbey.” Yet that only makes it easier to forget how against the grain public television often runs, daring to be wonky – and in some instances, flat-out boring. “Boring” isn’t always bad – “The Newshour” and “Frontline” aren’t afraid to let eyes glaze over, while conveying important news and information – but it won’t cut through the clutter. And it’s the adjective I kept coming back to watching back-to-back specials that premiere May 7, “Ted Talks Education” and the opener to the four-part “Constitution USA With Peter Sagal.”

Russell (Silver Linings Playbook), the two awards will differ for only the seventh time in history, and the first since 2002 when Roman Polanski won the Oscar for The Pianist after Rob Marshall had

Ben Affleck wins Directors Guild Award for 'Argo'
Some people can win for losing.

Ben Affleck claimed the Directors Guild of America Award for Argo on Saturday in Hollywood’s latest thumb-in-the-eye to the small group of filmmakers in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences who failed to nominate him for an Oscar.

“I worked really, really hard to become the best director I could be, by putting in as hours as I can, and banging my head against a wall, berating myself, lying to myself about whether it’s going to work,” Affleck told the crowd, never mentioning the snub. “Basically, I got to a
