The Five Best Dr. Hook Songs of All-Time

The core of the band known as Dr. Hook consisted of three men that had played together in another band before this one, and decided that they would strike up another band after moving to New Jersey. For about 17 years they managed to create something that people liked but that history doesn’t seem to remember quite as well since it’s not often that you hear about Dr. Hook.

‘The Last O.G.’ Trailer: Tiffany Haddish and Tracy Morgan Cover Each Other in Flour in Season 2

‘The Last O.G.’ Trailer: Tiffany Haddish and Tracy Morgan Cover Each Other in Flour in Season 2
Tiffany Haddish and Tracy Morgan made for one of the more enjoyable TV pairings of last year. Playing a pair of ex-partners adjusting to life after Tray (Morgan) is released from prison, the two form the narrative and comedic backbone of the TBS series “The Last O.G.”

When the show premiered last spring, IndieWire’s Ben Travers said of Haddish (and the show’s first season overall), “She’s a force as much as she constitutes the show’s limitations overall: Very good yet not yet great, the rest of the series gets a lot right early on without making a move to the top tier of television. That may nag at some who come in with ultra-high expectations, but Haddish and Morgan are marvelous, and ‘The Last O.G.’ could easily coast for six seasons on their charm alone.”

While Season 2 is still on the way for a few more months,
