A Dwight Howard TV Show? Lakers Contract Might Only Be the Beginning

1 July 2013 5:24 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Time Warner Cable Sports Net has, according to, reportedly discussed giving free agent NBA center Dwight Howard his own TV show if he re-signs with the Los Angeles Lakers.

This raises many questions, including what it would be called (“Laker Wobegon Days?”) but most notably: “Why stop there?”

After all, Twcsn and its Spanish-language counterpart each have the better part of 24 hours a day to devote to the Lakers, so finding a spot for a show dedicated to the seven-time NBA All-Star — would seem to be the least of their worries. Tonight, for example, Twcsn is airing reruns of a 2012 high school football game and an NBA Developmental League game between the Santa Cruz Warriors and the L.A. D-Fenders.

Under the circumstances, is there any Laker who shouldn’t have his own show? Frankly, a program dedicated not merely to Kobe Bryant, but Byrant’s Achilles surgery »

Early 2014 Oscar Predictions: First Best Original Screenplay Line-Up

27 March 2013 10:50 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Update: I messed up and accidentally had Cormac McCarthy's original screenplay for Ridley Scott's The Counselor in the Adapted category. The article reflects the changes. The early 2014 Oscar predictions continue and now that we have an official date for the ceremony we realize we are making these predictions just under one year from when the actual awards will be handed out. So, of course things will change, screenplays will be added and some will be dropped, but that's all part of the fun. That said, this week I'm taking a look at the screenplay contenders and today we'll begin with Best Original Screenplay with my first look at Best Adapted Screenplay predictions arriving tomorrow. Just like any of the other categories, we are largely basing these predictions on previous efforts, what small amount of buzz there may be surrounding some of these titles and Academy tendencies.
