How the ‘Rich Eisen Show’ Mixes Sports and Showbiz in an Entertaining Mix
Walking through the El Segundo studio where veteran sportscaster Rich Eisen tapes his daily “Rich Eisen Show,” the sheer density of sports memorabilia is overwhelming — everything from game balls to jerseys, gear, autographs and uncountable photos are crammed onto every inch of wall and desk space. But step into Eisen’s dressing room, and the focal item next to the host’s mirror tells a different story: An ancient Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner comedy LP, signed by both.

TV Review: ‘Whiskey Cavalier’

TV Review: ‘Whiskey Cavalier’
The crux of “Whiskey Cavalier” can be found right in its protagonist’s name. “Will Chase” is a purposefully ridiculous wink of a name that tries to be both debonair and very silly all at once, just like the FBI agent (played by Scott Foley) to which it belongs. This isn’t a regular spy drama, “Whiskey Cavalier” insists at every turn, but a fun spy drama that refuses to take itself too seriously. Yes, it’s cheesy, but it’s hard to hold that against the show too much when it’s also half the point.

Despite its hour-long run time,

How True Detective Season 3 Brought the Show Back to Greatness

When it started out True Detective was something that people were really willing to sink their teeth into since these kind of shows have been seen to have a decent track record in the past since they play to what the people want to see, be it horrible or at least interesting enough to take a glance at. While season 1 wasn’t all that bad a lot of people had a serious issue with season 2 since it failed to deliver as season 1 did and was hardly appreciated by anyone. For some reason it seems as though Colin Ferrell

10 Things You Didn’t Know about James Marsden

He says that he likes to switch it up but there’s a certain intensity to every role that James Marsden plays that makes it seem as though there’s one element he holds in reserve no matter what he does. It doesn’t make him any less of an effective actor, and in fact it does enhance some roles, but there’s that one quality that doesn’t seem to go away, that touch of something that he carries with him whether he knows it or not. With that being said it’s also fair to state that everything he has done, whether it’s been

The Five Best Kevin Kline Movies of His Career

Here’s something interesting about Kevin Kline that a lot of people have figured out but a lot of people still don’t know about. He can be every bit as inspiring as he is funny and people absolutely love it. He’s a walking grab bag of emotions when it comes to how he can pull them out of any audience member since he’s shown that he can be humorous, melancholy, serious, hilarious, and just basically off the wall when he needs to be. Kline is one of the few that can turn the switch on and off when he needs to
