'Top Chef': Never Underestimate Middle America

Let's get this block party started. Let's see: soggy corn dogs...flavorless pasta salad...and a brick of dried-out mac-and-Velveeta. Uh-oh, there goes the neighborhood. But first, this week's "Top Chef Chicago" starts with the Quickfire Challenge: Take the taco totally upscale. Richard wins by making tacos that have jicama slices as...

'Jericho': You Call That a Goodbye?

Wait a minute. Did CBS play the wrong "Jericho" finale last night? The network reportedly had two versions ready to go -- a cliffhanger that would whet our appetites for Season 3, and a series finale that would wrap everything up. Last Friday, CBS announced that "Jericho" wa sbeing canceled....

'Jericho': 30 Seconds Over Cheyenne

So, like all good things in life, it all comes down to Cheyenne, Wyoming. That's where the last bomb's heading, so that's where Hawkins, who lost the darned thing, is heading. And he's taking Jake with him. Who's also on their way to Cheyenne (if he's not there already)? Hawkin's...

'Jericho': At the End of His Rope

Goetz goes down! (Actually, he goes up, but in a really bad, hanging-from-a-noose kind of way.) So it appears that the Ravenwood threat to the town of Jericho is finally eliminated, but with just two episodes to go this season, we still have that massive Cheyenne government/Jennings & Rall conspiracy...

'Jericho': Oh, It's On (Again)

The headline from last night's "Jericho": Hawkins gets closer and Getz gets meaner. We begin with foreshadowing (oooh, classy literary device) as Stanley points his rifle at what he assumes is bad guys trespassing on his property. It turns out to be little Dale 'n' friends, trying to smuggle necessities...

'Jericho': Rays of Hope Shoot Through

Two unlikely rays of hope beamed through last night in the otherwise dark and bleak lil' town of Jericho. (And neither of those rays had anything to do with last week's ratings. Just more than 5 million tuned in to our fair little show, and NO amount of peanuts will...

'Jericho': All Politics Is Loco

No gunfire or big 'splosions in last night's episode of "Jericho" -- for a change. Nope, the CBS series struck a political chord with all its talk of Constitutional Conventions and historical revisionism -- as well as veiled references to the Patriot Act. The president of the Allied States of...

'Jericho': The Season Debut, From Soup to (Pea)nuts

So, "Jericho" Army, was it worth it? Was it worth the 10-month wait between seasons? Was it worth the massive grass-roots effort to bring the show back for a second, albeit short, seven-episode season? Was it worth sending all those peanuts to CBS? Let's review. Skeet Ulrich and Esai Morales...
