Carl Reiner honored by TV Academy

Pg531920

1) Looks like a great time was had by all Thursday at the TV Academy’s celebration of Carl Reiner. We hope to have video from the event later today.

2) “Community” delivered its most rewarding episode of the season, and was rewarded with a ratings bump all the way to … 1.7 in the 18-49 demo.  Someone, please get this show away from “The Big Bang Theory.”

3) Not to be ignored, “Big Bang” on Thursday was funny once again from start to finish, once again thriving thanks to its inclusion of female performers like Melissa Rauch.

4) I finally finished “Prohibition,” which managed to somehow be engaging while at the same time seeming even longer than its six hours. The Ken Burns/Lynn Novick/Geoffrey C. Ward project definitely strove for modern-day relevance, arguing that inflexibility is poison to any movement aiming to legislate morality in a restrictive sense. (If the “Drys” had been more flexible, America’s laws suppressing alcoholic beverage sales might have survived.) 

5) NBC bets on “Whitney” for a full season, then sees it become its only Thursday sitcom to drop in the ratings this week. And then “Prime Suspect” comes on at 10 p.m. and gets a rating that recalls “The Jay Leno Show.”
