Miami sports writer Dan Le Betard banters with frequent radio guest Bomani Jones and both live in the shadow of Dan's "Papi", a Latin version of Charles Barkley sans anything like a discernible sports background. To watch this odd concoction work is often magic.

    The only real trick is finding it on the schedule. Despite that it posts strong ratings whenever it settles in for a bit. The next new show is slated for Monday.

    Jeeze, come on Disney, someone, give this show a consistent slot. It's more interesting and entertaining than most of what passes through ESPN these days, from Pardon the Interrupted Nap to Numbers Rarely Interest.... The only thing truly questionable is the thinking that has it sidelined so often.
    I think this is Jefferson's favorite show.

    It's a great show. But it's poorly used by ESPN.


    Longmire had its season three finale Monday and left so much on the table I'm really hoping it gets renewed for a fourth season. Looks like we finally know who is at the heart of the death of Longmire's wife and it would be one heck of a reckoning season to be cheated of...

    Did you watch The Glades? I can't believe we got cheated out of a resolution to that finale.

    Yeah. That irked me almost as much as Deadwood. Maybe more given the way it ended. I guess that means he died.

    And it was doing good with ratings too. I don't get it. The lead has already moved on to a trashy piece of cable tv on another network. Too bad. It was a good show.

    I wonder how many of you out there are Dish or Directv or cable subscribers and how that breaks down. I know some of you may be over the air and Netflix or Hulu folks. I'm considering my options in the coming year.

    I was with Directv for a long while, but the quality kept declining as the price continued to rise. I've been with Dish a little over a year and have to say their DVR and pricing leaves Direct in the rear view, but I'm considering buying my own Tivo and using over the air and subscription to augment, given it appears I can get just about everything I'm getting now and for considerably less outlay, except for the start up.

    Anyone else thinking about that sort of thing or have experience with it they'd like to share?

    I loved Dish when I had it. Now I'm dealing with AT&T U-Verse because that's what my roommate had when I moved in, and he won't change it. Not even to save money. I hate it, compared to Dish. If he watched as much TV as I do he might think differently, though.

    The worst is the guide and search functionality. Dish is much easier to navigate in the guide because you can skip a specified amount of time, whereas AT&T allows you to go bit by bit or skip 24 hours, but nothing else. And Dish search saves your searches so you don't have to type them in every time.

    I've had Dish (back when it was Dish Network) and Directv.
    Liked them both. Very happy with AT&T U-Verse currently.

    I was also happy for 6 months with just rabbit ears, a couple years ago, and $100 richer.

    Longmire will not be renewed for a third season by the Arts and Entertainment network. The critically well received ensemble piece was the network's second most popular show, but the demographic skewed older and they apparently don't care for that audience.

    So I say let's help A&E and tell them to go skew themselves by not watching any more of their programming. Let them see how many of those twenty somethings with attention deficit disorder will spend time and money on them.

    Great production values. Good cast. So far I've been pleasantly surprised.

    Yeah production values are definitely high and Stoll is a solid lead, I liked his work on House of Cards.

    Also, didn't see the show listed, no one liked True Detective? It is only one season so far but it was really good.

    True Detective was fantastic.

    I recently finished season 1-3 of Hell on Wheels. Quite enjoy that show as well

    At the moment I am not watching much. Waiting for Homeland season 3 to come out on DVD here.
    "By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace." (Luke 1:78-79)

    The Light Eternal, breaking through,
    the world to gleam anew;
    His beams have pierced the core of night,
    He makes us children of the light.

    -Martin Luther
