The Nightly Surge | February 27, 2017

I went to bed early last night so I’m just catching up… so I take it that Bonnie And Clyde are going to be in a reboot of Moonlighting filmed in LA LA Land? I hope Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd have cameos. Admit it, you were waiting…

T.G.I… if you don’t know the final letter there, you have more problems than a CNN reporter at a President Trump press conference. It’s Friday here at “Les Nightly” as they’re calling it in France… and that means one thing…

The Nightly Surge | February 23, 2017

It’s Thursday at The Nightly. This reminds me of the “It’s morning in America” thing Ronald Reagan used for his re-election campaign… minus the election, Reagan, and trouble in Russia. Wait… okay, so minus 2 out of 3…

The Morning Surge | February 22, 2017

Well, we’re nearly through February and yet another week of winter. The only problem is, it doesn’t feel like winter here in the Northeast at all. New York City will see 64-degree weather on Friday, while Boston will see temperatures above 60…

Happy President’s Day everybody! Today we actually celebrate George Washington’s birthday, even though he was technically born on February 22. That’s because we just take the third Monday in February and celebrate his birthday…

The Nightly Surge | February 16, 2017

“Unhinged.” This seems to be the word of the moment. After the end of the President’s press conference today, people said either he is unhinged, or the media is unhinged. All I know is that I want to be unhinged. Seems like it would be…
