TV: Dave Allen: God's Own Comedian

Profile of the impossibly dry Irish comic, best known for his trenchant attacks on the Catholic church. Allen ploughed a lone – and lonely – furrow on the stand-up circuit, largely resistant to the comic trends of his day, but was nevertheless hugely influential, not least on the alternative comedy scene of the 1980s. Family, friends and peers as diverse as Stephen Frears and Maggie Smith discuss his work, legacy and the story behind his missing finger, which

TV is Bad For Your Health

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb...

Claire O’Connor writes for Forbes about a research paper connecting episode-marathons with obesity...

"Harvard Medical School instructor Dr. Rumi Chunara published a study showing that areas with a high proportion of Facebookers with “sedentary-related interests” based around the television — say, box-set DVDs or episode marathons — generally have higher obesity rates. Conversely, neighborhoods with a greater percentage of the population showing “activity-related interests” through their Facebook ‘likes’ tend to be areas with fewer obese residents."

• Sarah Dempster's TV Od: From Dick Van Dyke to Tony Soprano, America In Primetime tries to find the definitive Us TV dad

Who is the definitive American TV dad? What are his hopes and fears? How does he deal with change? Where did he get that hat? Are those Findus Crispy Pancakes? Why is he shouting at us to get off his porch? Ooh, is that a gun? These and other vexed questions are addressed in the first episode of America In Primetime (Saturday, 10.15pm, BBC2), a wholly engrossing four-part stare through the net curtains of Us TV. It's a weighty 2011 PBS series gently Britished-up by the BBC, with tonight's opener taking a thorough squint at the history of that most familiar and conflicted of fictional small-screen idols: the primetime patriarch.

"America in Primetime" covers television tropes like The Independent Woman

This past Sunday, PBS aired its first segment of a four-part series called America in Primetime, which is all about television — its history, its characters, its growth.

The first segment was "The Independent Woman," which was about the pressures that real women have faced, which translates into what female characters face. The entire episode is available to watch on the PBS website, so you can still watch it in its entirety. Interviewees include Julianna Margulies, Archie Panjabi, Elisabeth Moss, Patricia Heaton, Roseanne Barr, Diablo Cody, Mary Tyler Moore and many, many more. The discussions range from broader ideas about how women's roles have changed in the home and at work from the 1950s through present day, and wow, how times have changed.
