Adam Wright: More NBC Reunions To Make Them Suck Less
NBC currently sits in 4th place in the ratings among the broadcast networks. The lowly last place is a tough place to be. Especially for a network that dominated just around a decade or two ago.

Eddie of 'Frasier' Fame Dies

Moose, the Jack Russell terrier who played Eddie for over a decade on the Emmy-winning TV series Frasier, has died. He was 16-and-a-half (115 in dog years). Moose died on Thursday night of old age at his home near Los Angeles, according to his trainer Mathilde Halberg. She tells American People magazine, "He just had an incredible charisma and was such a free spirit." Halberg rescued Moose from a dog pound in the early 1990s and soon discovered he was a natural actor.
