Finally, Proof that Television is Bad for You

So, here we are in the back 9 of this television season and it quite frankly it hasn’t been spectacular. The uber-geniuses at ABC have just the thing to make everyone stand up…… It’s titled No Ordinary Family. Here is the 411 … the story of a family whose father, Jim, a once aspiring artist […]
