  • Senators stage their own ‘Survivor’ show Oct 29, 2014 5:45 AM
    Jeff Flake and Martin Heinrich were willing to go to great lengths to prove that a Democratic and Republican U.S. senator could work together. Like halfway around the world.

  • TruTV goes for laughs with ‘Friends of the People’ Oct 28, 2014 5:45 AM
    It takes a special breed of sketch comedy to make it worth seeking out. But “Friends of the People” should tickle your comedy sweet tooth more than most. Which means it’s well-worth tracking down on truTV, a network that heretofore was never known for funny, where it premieres at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. What sets it apart? For one thing, its demographic makeup: six guys (five African-American and one Caucasian), plus one lone white gal.
