CNN's pivot to less news-talk and more documentary series in prime time got off to a mixed start with the debut of "Chicagoland" Thursday night. Despite heavy promotion, the series about the City of Chicago, with a strong focus on Mayor Rahm Emanuel, finished last behind first-place Fox and second-place MSNBC in overall audience. The total audience numbered only 629,000 viewers for CNN versus 816,000 for MSNBC and 1.43 million for Fox. Sean Hannity was the competition on Fox, while MSNBC featured Lawrence O'Donnell.

And as they wind down a successful run of one of their most ambitious projects yet - "Unscripted," which takes impromptu sketch comedy to another level by putting on entirely impromptu plays that can last upward of 90 minutes - BIG is showing no signs of slowing down. "Improv is one of the best creative outlets I've ever had," says Heather Moyer, a founding member of the group and the only one who was there at the beginning and still performing. "I love hearing the audience laugh.

With Old School RAW coming to Baltimore on Monday, I got a chance to talk to a WWE Superstar that is constantly referred to as “old school," Antonio Cesaro.

Q: How would you characterize your 2013 in the WWE? A: Well, I started the year as the United States champion, and now I am not the United States champion.

After three years of pain, Maryland football fans just wanted a chance to party in the waning days of a season. So smiles abounded in Annapolis on Friday as Terps supporters gathered to celebrate the program's first bowl appearance since 2010. The Military Bowl might be far from the pinnacle of college football. And plenty of Maryland fans might retain misgivings about third-year coach Randy Edsall. But given the negativity that surrounded the program just a few months ago, as injuries threatened to derail another season, the late-December game against Marshall struck many as a perfectly fine holiday gift.

For an agricultural operation that is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, Maple Lawn Turkey Farm is adept at blending the old and the new. Tried-and-true methods still prevail at Maple Lawn. But the Fulton farm also embraces modern concepts, such as raising free-range birds and using large arrays of solar panels to generate enough electricity to offset what it consumes each year. And just in time for Thanksgiving, the turkey farm's success story will unfold on the airwaves Tuesday in the debut of a new half-hour TV series featuring farms across the state.

“PBS NewsHour,” once one of the nation's most influential broadcasts, is on the brink of marginalization - if not extinction. And for those of us who believe TV needs at least one noncommercial, nightly, national newscast in these increasingly corporate times, that's a cause for concern. The “NewsHour” has lost 48 percent of its audience in the past eight years, going from an average audience of 2.5 million viewers a night in 2005 to 1.3 million in fiscal year 2013 (PBS shows are measured in fiscal years)

By any measure, the 2013 World Series should be a big television draw. The Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals are historic franchises with terrific national followings, and they're attractive teams with great pitching and plenty of interesting storylines. So why is this Fall Classic getting a relative ho-hum reaction from baseball fans, who are delivering another series of mediocre overnight TV ratings and appear to be spending more time at the water cooler actually drinking water than talking baseball?
